    Best Team!

    We loved our wedding trailer and full length feature. Jon and his team were so kind, thoughtful, and easy to work with. They have an incredible price point for high quality work (I cried watching our trailer!) and we never felt overwhelmed by their presence, which allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding day! Highly recommend!

    Had a great experience!

    We had a excellent experience with John! He was extremely easy to work with. It's clear he has been doing this awhile because he had everything down pat. Of all the vendors I worked with, John was the easiest by a longshot! He gives you everything you need and more to capture all the important moments on your wedding day. I would highly recommend Smiling Toad Productions!
