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.Sent on 01/16/2019
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.

Great, professional team
Everyone told us our wedding would go by quickly, so we knew we wanted a videographer to document the day. Smiling Toad came highly recommended and we were so happy to have them document our wedding. They were very nice and professional and caught all of the special moments on video while not being at all distracting.Sent on 10/29/2018

So happy to relive our day anytime!
I was hesitant about hiring a videographer for our wedding, but I am so glad we did! John was very attentive to all of my questions and made himself available throughout my decision making process. He tailored our package to deliver exactly what we wanted, and allowed us to be as involved as we wanted. For example, music is important to my partner and myself so we hand selected our songs. His team is professional and fun. The end result is so special and brings back all the feelings from our wedding day. I am so thankful that our photographer recommended Smiling Toad!Sent on 01/17/2019

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.
