If you’re on the fence- 100%do it
Once we had our guest count in we had some wiggle room- Mirar wasn’t the cheapest but I would still say they are undervalued for what we got! We did a custom package and they were always super responsive. We are by no means emotional people, and we both were tearing up watching our preview and first draft of our 15 minute video.Sent on 08/06/2019
The actual people who videod us were super knowledgeable and go with the flow day of, yet somehow captured everything without even noticing them. They were flexible, accommodating and always professional. I would recommend them to all my friends and strangers looking for a videographer for their special day

Philipe did an amazing job with our videos. I wasn’t even sure I wanted a videographer and WOW, I am so happy we worked with Mirar. They were like flies on the wall and soaked in all the great moments without being in our way or noticed. I would absolutely use them again.Sent on 09/13/2018

My husband and I hired Mirar to capture our wedding day and it is one of the favorite decisions we made. With their help, we now have the perfect ~12 minute recap of our big day to view for years to come and share with family and friends. They did an exceptional job capturing everything from the really big, special moments to the fun, crazy moments on the dance floor late into the evening, to the florals and decorative details that I would never want to forget. They were incredibly thoughtful and methodical in how they pulled the video together, the flow, the audio (speeches and heartfelt songs), the specific footage that was chosen… they are definitely experts in their craft. They worked swimmingly with our photographer, Cristina G Photography, to make sure they knew and were prepared to capture her every move and instruction and the end result is something we will watch and relive for years and years to come. For all those brides and grooms planning an upcoming wedding, I can’t stress enough how special our wedding video is, the added expense of a videographer is SO WORTH IT. And with that, I can’t recommend Mirar enough as a trustworthy, reliable and professional source to document all the special moments of your big day and turn them into something you will cherish for the rest of your lives.Sent on 07/18/2018
