The best videographers!
Chris and Chris are amazing videographers! As a broadcast journalist, I shoot video everyday for my job, so hiring a skilled videographer was important to me. Chris and Chris don't just capture posed moments, but rather, they go above and beyond to catch the little moments on your wedding day. We are so happy we chose them for our wedding day, and we HIGHLY recommend Swell! Thank you both so much!Sent on 05/22/2019

I cannot begin to put into words how incredible Chris and the guys at Swell Weddings truly are but I will start by saying it was by far the best investment we made for our wedding and probably one of the best investments we will ever make! Everyone tells you that your wedding day will go by quickly but you don't really understand it until the day comes and goes. There are so many moments I barely remember and they captured it all, in the most beautiful and artistic way ever possible! Thanks to Swell we will have this day for the rest of our lives and I watch the short film almost daily! We are so thankful and blessed by this gift and almost opted out of hiring a videographer. Advice for future brides and grooms, DO IT, it will be the best decision and one you wont regret! I miss wedding planning, the details, all the sentimental touches and all the hard work you put into one day...well, I can say, I at least have the memories through our video. I cannot wait to see what the full version has in store for us! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Swell Weddings...you completely outdid yourself! ❤Sent on 07/10/2019

This is the videographer you need to hire. They were extremely responsive and so easy to work with, and their videos speak for themselves. The end result for our short film left me speechless, and it was the perfect way to share our wedding with loved ones that couldn't make it. The feature film had all of the important aspects of our wedding while still having an artistic feel. Loved having them, and I highly recommend!Sent on 02/11/2019
