    Ariel did a wonderful job capturing my son’s bar mitzvah. My mom fell ill and was unable to attend. Lucky to have this video!

    This video beautifully captured my son’s bar mitzvah and will be a keepsake forever. The sound and picture quality were outstanding, which surprised me, because he was required by the synagogue to shoot from the balcony, quite far from the action. It was sent to us in a Dropbox and also a flash drive, which arrived in a beautiful keepsake box. I really appreciate the attention to detail.

    You can't go wrong with Leira Productions!

    Ariel and his team did a great job with our wedding video! We knew we wanted to hire him right away because he was so easy to talk to and was open to all of our ideas. Ariel did the most amazing drone shot over our venue! They were very professional the day of and easy to work with during the edit process, even with my picky and detail oriented notes. My husband and I love our video and it is something we will cherish for years to come!

    Captured the event and the emotion

    Above and beyond. Ariel was excited and open to all our very specific requests for what we wanted to be preserved from our ceremony and reception, and was responsive and available in the lead up to our big day for consultation. He made himself clear on what equipment he was bringing and what he needed from us well ahead of time so there were no surprises to contend with on the day. He and his team were unobtrusive during the whole event; we got our videos back and I see angles and shots that I am astonished to believe I don't remember seeing anyone with a video camera in front of me. Finally, the end result is beyond what we could imagine. The clarity of the video, the editing, all the color and lighting matches from shot to shot, every word is legible (even though it was competing with an ocean wind as our ceremony was outdoors) and he provided us with exactly what we asked for plus his own touches that we didn't envision but were amazed to see. As one friend commented upon seeing our "highlight" video, "This isn't a wedding video - this is a pilot for a TV show that I want to keep watching!" All this for a competitive and reasonable fee, and compared to what so many other vendors are charging, Leira Productions is who you want to create not only a record of the event but they really capture the feeling and emotion of the event; it was like living it all over again. And again and again.

    Great experience

    I came across Ariel as he was shooting a wedding i was in. I loved his interaction with all of us. He was professional but had fun and made everything feel so natural. By the end of the night I knew I needed him to film my wedding. Sadly, he was already booked for my wedding date! He came with the idea to have another person shoot the wedding and he would edit it. I was a little bummed but I could not have loved the girl he sent more. She was so sweet and nice and just made everything feel so natural also! We just got our video back and it’s amazing! Ariel was easy to get a hold of and very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommended his services to any family or friends, which I have already done. Not to mention we got our flash drive in the cutest wooden box that I’ll keep forever!

    Thank you Jordan. I was sad that I wasn't able to be there in person with you and Josh on this special day. But in editing the film, I felt like I got a pretty good taste of what an amazing day it was.

    We are so happy with Ariel’s work! He was super quick to give us our pictures (the day after)!! Not only was he quick, but the quality and color of the pictures was perfect! The day of our event, he stayed longer than we asked him to and captured everything we wanted, he didn’t need to and we really appreciated that. Ariel is so easy to work with, best personality. We had the best experince and highly reccamend using him.

    Exactly what we were looking for

    Ariel did an amazing job capturing the energy and emotion of our wedding day. From the moment we took our vows to the toasts and dance floor, Leira Productions caught all of the magic and edited it together beautifully. We are so excited to have something to not only share with others, but also to remind us of how special that day was.

    Ariel and his time were incredible! They were so thoughtful, organized, on time and caring about making our wedding video special. Their footage captured everything we could've asked for and his talent for editing to re-tell our story was so impressive. I recommend Leira Productions to everyone!

    I have already recommended Leira to many friends!

    One of the best vendors we had hired for our wedding! Leira Productions (Ariel, the main videographer) was responsive, professional, efficient, and totally affordable! The day after our first phone meeting, Ariel had already contacted our church coordinator and figured out the whole layout of the church, such as the number of videographers and equipments required, so he could accurately provide us with a quote. Unlike a lot of vendors in the wedding industry (perhaps just in LA), who charge you a tremendous amount of $$ for any tiny amount of additional service, Ariel was very reasonable in his pricing. The end result came out to be like a mini movie, and we and all of our family members were very pleased. My husband and I are grateful for Ariel and his team's hard work in preserving our special day so beautifully in a digital memory. Highly recommended!!

    Thank you so much Claire and Jeff! Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and so much fun. Everything from your amazingly choreographed first dance to the fun games during the reception, were a joy to film and edit. So happy you and your families liked the film! And thank you for continuing to recommend us to your friends.

    Working with Leira Productions was a dream come true. Storytellers at heart, Leira listens to their clients and quietly capture the hidden moments of the big day in a quiet fashion. The coverage of the event was amazing, the imagery - top notch. If anyone is wavering on their wedding videographer, I say stop. Look no further. Leira delivers!

    We are in love with our wedding video! Ariel was easy to work with, and we so appreciate his talent, responsiveness, and easygoing nature. He really listened to what we wanted and crafted a video that is meaningful, sentimental, and fun to watch. He captured the spirit of our experience, filmed moments of our guests that we weren't able to see on the day of, and left us with a keepsake for the rest of our lives. Weddings go by in a flash, but now we have something to hold on to forever! Thank you, Ariel.

    Working with Ariel at Leira Productions was amazing! He took the time to listen to what I wanted and delivered a video that captured my wedding day perfectly. The first time I saw it, I cried tears of joy! Ariel did an incredible job recording all of the important moments in a truly beautiful way, including my husband's and my reactions when we first saw each other walking down the aisle. He was extremely reliable and professional to work with. I would highly recommend Leira Productions to anyone looking for a videographer. Book him for your wedding and you will be so happy you did!

    I can't say enough about Leira Production and Ariel Aboody's work on my son Max's Bar Mitzvah video. Ariel worked efficiently and professionally throughout the event and captured the best of the event with all of its great moments. He was great with our family and guests, and made a great event even better. The final edited product has been shared with family and friends and members of our congregation, and we we always get the same reaction: Wow! What a great Bar Mitzvah! Who did your video?
