    Great wedding videographer!

    Smiling Toad did an absolutely wonderful job with the videography for our November 2021 wedding! The two videographers were very professional, and willing to work with us to capture our perfect day! We would highly recommend them for any wedding.

    Amazing Videographer!

    Smiling Toad Productions was so much fun to work with. They captured the day perfectly, and paid close attention to all the details we had. They were great at getting us to warm up in front of the camera, and were very creative with how they captured different moments. We have received so many compliments on our video, and all our friends and family say it's hands down the best they have ever seen. It's hard to pick a videographer since there are so many styles out there. But we are glad we found Smiling Toad Productions. They will not disappoint.

    Smiling Toad Productions's reply:

    Thanks for the wonderful review and it was a wonderful day we were luck to be a small part of, all the best!

    Fantastic Video for Our 2021 Wedding

    We worked with Smiling Toad for our wedding in October 2021 and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! John and team were always responsive and flexible when we had to reschedule our original wedding date due to COVID. The day of the wedding the videographers were both extremely professional and helpful. We love how our videos came out and are extremely appreciative to be able to look back on our favorite day in such a fantastic way. Highly recommend booking the Smiling Toad team for your wedding!

    Smiling Toad Productions's reply:

    Hi Katy, thank you so much for your review! You had to adjust many things and we were just happy to be able to adjust with you, fantastic day for sure, all the best!
    -John
