100% worth it
We were very impressed with our wedding video and could not wait to show our family and friends. Doug got all the the important moments we wanted and captured all the emotions of the day. We loved using Doug for a videographer plus it did not break the bank! This is a must for a wedding.Sent on 02/23/2021

Great Experience Fun and Professional!! I will hire him again!
Doug and his assistant was wonderful! My other wedding photographer canceled on us, and Doug was not only willing to step in and take over with only 5 months to plan, he also offered me a great price for his services. All my fiance's family and friends live on the East coast, so we found out only a month out that they weren't going to make it to Iowa to be at our wedding. Doug quoted me $150 to do the videography (for just our wedding,which is what I had asked for.) Money was tight, so we were unable to pay it. He offered to drop the price another $50 dollars because he know I really wanted to have it for my fiance's family/friends back home. Luckily a wedding gift came in, that allowed us to get him to do the video too. My fiance has issues with bright lights and flash, and Doug was willing to tackle these issues by not using flash for our indoor photos. (A lot of wedding photographers we had originally spoken too, didn't want to touch this issue) He had an assistant there, that he paid out of his own pocket, so that he would be able to cover everything. His assistant was a sweetheart, who took photos but remained in the background, to the point I'd forget she was there. (Our bridal room was small.. so to do that takes talent.) Both Doug and his assistant was amazing. Professional, fun, easy going and a sense of humor. When our wedding party wanted to do some wacky things for our photos Doug and his assistant went with the flow and took the photos. I haven't seen the photos yet. Some of the outside photo locations, I couldn't see the whole picture....but guests watching I overheard them many times saying "Oh that will be a great photo" I will hire Doug again soon!Sent on 10/23/2019

My experience working with Doug was wonderful. He was very professional, reasonable priced, and my wedding photos turned out better than I though was possible. I'd recommend Doug to anyone I know.Sent on 12/06/2018
