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!Sent on 10/31/2019

Smiling Toad provided us the most amazing short, trailer, and feature wedding film for which we could have asked. They crafted the most amazing three films (with the best music!) possible for us. I love music and gave a couple of notes but...being honest, expected to be disappointed in the music because I'm picky. And yet, they hit it out of the park! They did an incredible job, made us all cry when watching the videos, and we truly feel that our best wedding decision was getting a videographer in general--and hiring Smiling Toad. :)Sent on 06/19/2019

Video on Repeat
Wary about hiring a videographer, my husband and I talked to many friends and family about if a videographer is worth it. All of those who did not have their wedding on video wished they did and knowing that, I did not want to have any regrets about our wedding day. We did our research and came across Smiling Toad Productions. We liked how they capture everything we wanted in a wedding video from parts of speeches, and dances, to a cinematic movie. It’s exactly what we wanted. John was very responsive, and the process was very simple to hire him.
We received our video last week and I’m embarrassed to say how many times I’ve watched it. Reliving our day is priceless and I recommend Smiling Toad Productions to anyone looking for a quality wedding video.

One of our "go to" video/film partners for their excellent product, service and pricing!
Professional, unobtrusive videographers, and beautiful final products. You can't go wrong with Smiling Toad.
John and his crew at Smiling Toad are reliable, creative, and go the extra mile to please their customers. My clients have raved about their videos from Smiling Toad. They are truly able to capture the emotion of wedding day. I always look forward to working with them.
