    Ben at Threaded Films is an absolute All-Star and we loved working with him - which is funny to say, because my husband and I were on the fence about getting a videographer for our wedding. But, oh my goodness, we are thrilled that we decided to get one and even more thrilled that Ben and Matt were there with us on our wedding day. The thing with Threaded, is that they're not just about capturing the day, they're all about getting to know you as a couple and really understanding and telling your story.
    They are fun to work with, incredibly genuine guys, and they love what they do!
    They are worth it!

    honestly steven & his crew deserve 100 stars. we ended up ordering a same day edit video & everyone fell in love with it. i swear it was the biggest hit of the wedding.

    they are sooooo creative, punctual, and professional. super nice guys with excellent vision. the cost was a little higher end, but the end product is absolutely worth it. you do not want to skip out on a videographer for your wedding.

    steve was always on top of his responses, always got back to me through email or phone, listened to all our concerns & was extemely flexible. he worked well with my photographer, which is always a plus.

    here's a quick story of how great steve & his crew are: my brother made a slideshow for the wedding, but he had it on his laptop. well somewhere in the middle, someone forgot to bring the connections from the laptop to the projector. so steve & his friends ended up burning a dvd on the spot & saved the day so we could play my brother's slideshow. steve could've ignored our dilemma & gone about his business, but he really stepped up & helped us out. a great guy with a great company.

    thanks steve for really coming through on our wedding day, in more ways than one. we cant wait to see our final wedding video.

    Threaded Films's reply:

    Kristina and Jason, thank you for such a wonderful review. We sincerely appreciate the feedback and helping your brother out was not an issue at all. Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in our abilities and just wait until the film is ready. . . .

    Congratulations!

    Weddings by SML, now called Threaded Films, was possibly the best decision we ever made in the whole wedding process. From start to finish, Steve, Ben and the Threaded Team were professional, helpful, extremely responsive, extremely cool to work with, and artistic. They listened to our needs and tailored their approach to all our specific requests. I must admit, we didn't necessarily want a videographer at our wedding. We thought pictures would be enough. Our parents urged us to at least do some research, and when we stumbled upon Threaded Films, we were so enthralled we couldn't go back. It was worth every penny and more.

    We LOVED skyping with and then hanging out with Steve and Ben before and throughout the wedding. They were present at all the right moments AND they were so inconspicuous that when Chris and I discussed the events of the wedding the next day, we actually got a little nervous: "I didn't see them as we walked down the aisle." "Do you think they got a shot of us while we had our first dance? I don't think they were there!" We don't remember them because they were SO out of the way that we were able to have all our moments. Sure enough, the trailer came out shortly after the wedding, and we were BLOWN away. They had captured every important moment and more. What they create in that studio is a work of art, truly. They were so thoughtful, creative, observant, and their shots were amazing. We have shown the trailer to probably hundreds of people at this point, and at least 80% are in tears after 2 minutes. Finally, the end result- our film. It exceeded all expectations. It truly captured everything, some of which we missed in the excitement of it all. It told our story perfectly. I'm not sure how else to explain how amazing this team is. You NEED their services. I can't recommend Threaded Films highly enough, and I urge you to book them NOW!

    I can't say enough good things about the team at Weddings by SML, but I'm going to try!

    I had been on the fence about hiring a videographer, and had figured if I did I would just hire somebody to be there to capture the day as inexpensively as possible. But when I came across Steve and his team (honestly, after being referred to them 5 or 6 times) I checked out some of his work, met with him, and was sold.

    From the get-go, Steve and his team have been nothing but professional, warm, and interested in knowing exactly who we are as a couple. In a few meetings (both in person and via Skype) Steve talked with my husband and I to learn how we got together, whats important to us, and what our big day was all about. Although the team was contracted to film for 8 hours, Steve decided that the activities on the morning of the wedding were important to include in our Same Day Edit (this blew me away!) and a videographer met my husband and his father on the golf course that morning... at 7am!

    Throughout our whole day, the team was there getting awesome footage (things you wouldn't even think of that really made the Same Day Edit amazing) and were so professional, we hardly even noticed they were there filming. They captured candid conversations that were worked into the video that were perfect, and we didn't even realize they were getting them. They told our story so movingly in 4 minutes that they had our whole reception in tears (my husband probably the most so!).

    We have since watched it about 100 times (along with many of our friends and family, both those who were there and those who couldn't make it). We've been able to relive the most incredible memories (and have cried watching it more than once). I can't wait to see our feature film! We are counting down the days.

    I can't begin to say how glad I am that we hired them and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

    Steve has done several of my friends' weddings and I have always been impressed with his work. So much so in fact that when my fiance and I were deciding on a wedding date we actually called Steve to make sure he was available on our preferred date. Steve and his team are all very easy-going and understand the importance of capturing the moment without getting in the way. One of the best qualities about Steve's work is the detail shots; shots of me setting out my something old/something new, shots of our guests mingling and having a good time and even a shot of my mom holding back tears as I walked down the aisle. That shot alone was worth every penny. Our wedding day was such a whirlwind, but Steve and his team captured every moment and every emotion and it was wonderful to watch our video so we could actually remember everything and re-live it again. I recommend Weddings by SML every chance I get!

    We absolutely LOVED our same day edit (SDE) and wedding film! Before seeing Steve's work, we weren't going to hire a videographer for our wedding day, but after meeting him and just seeing a couple of his films, we were convinced. A videographer wasn't in our original budget, but without hesitation, we signed a contract at our first meeting!

    Before our wedding day, my husband was already excited for the SDE (and you know grooms don't really get excited for very many wedding details)...and trust me, after the wedding, we must've watched it a million times! Everybody was talking about the SDE after the wedding (they loved it so much that my friends were posting the link on their own Facebook walls just to share it with all their friends haha). You would think nothing could top the SDE, then we received the feature film...and we could not be happier. Not only was Steve's work amazing, but all of our guests and vendors loved working with him and his team too. This is one of the best investments we made for our big day! We can't thank them enough!

    Steve with Weddings by SML was amazing. I didn't even know he was there, they were so unobtrusive, and they captured every treasured moment! The final film was beyond what I could have imagined. Having a film of our wedding day done by Steve from Weddings by SML was by far one of the best decisions we made for our special day! I highly recommend using them for your big day!! This is one thing to NOT cut out of the budget, you will have your film long after your day is over and it will take you right back to that day! Especially with moments you might have missed or forgotten because of all the excitement! Our film will definitely be treasured for years to come!! Thanks so much Steve!!

    When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we agreed that we were not interested in hiring a videographer. We had seen so many less-than-inspiring wedding videos that we did not want to bother paying for one of our own. My father, however, was not accepting of this, and pushed us to find someone. We were disappointed in videographer after videographer, until finally, we were lucky enough to meet Steve Luxenberg with SML Production.

    We fell in love with their work at first sight. We found the sample films Steve showed us to be unique, touching, genuine, full of life, and completely unlike anything we had seen before. The videography of our wedding instantly went from being a meaningless, extraneous cost, to being an absolute must-have, in our eyes. When SML arrived at our site on the day of our wedding, they were kind, fun and fully prepared. Somehow they managed to find creative ways to shoot every detail of our day without much notice from us or our guests. They were an absolute joy to work with.

    The most telling instance of the quality of SML's work, for us, however, came when we watched our wedding film on DVD for the first time. We were absolutely blown away. It captures the essence of the day so beautifully. Our wedding was such a perfectly joyful experience for us and our families. We wished we could bottle the day and carry it with us forever; the film SML created actually does just that. It has been wonderful to have such a brilliant representation of our wedding to share with our family and friends that were unable to attend the actual event.

    We are so grateful to SML for the moving work of art they have created for us. Our wedding day could not have been preserved any more beautifully.

    We could not be more pleased with our final wedding film/highlight/DVD of special features from Weddings by SML! Steve & team were such a pleasure to work with, responsive, professional and collaborative. They took everything we told them that was important to us and captured it all perfectly in the final product. Aside from how happy we were, we have gotten so many compliments from our family and friends about how great the film turned out :)

    Steve and his team did an absolutely phenomenal job on our wedding video!!! Steve is very professional and extremely good at what he does! His videos are unlike anything you have ever seen when it comes to wedding videography. The shots are so unique and captivating, while still maintaining the true essence of you as a couple. He has an amazing turn-around time...we received the final video 2 months after the wedding! And the little preview on his website was so special. Our friends and family were astonished with the video and his services were worth every penny! If you want a cinematic masterpiece then I would definitely book Weddings by SML!

    We found Steve and Weddings by SML late into our wedding planning, and our budget was all ready used up. After I met with him, and viewed every video on his blog, I HAD to hire Weddings by SML. My husband was totally skeptical, not supportive of it at first (mainly because of cost), but once we met him on the wedding day, he KNEW it was worth it. And we hadn't even seen an ounce of footage yet.

    The result?

    We were totally blown away. AMAZING. We splurged and got the same day edit and the short-film highlights of the wedding day, and it was absolutely amazing. His editing, the way he captured the spirit of the day and who we are as a couple, and everything in between (not to mention he made me look GORGEOUS on film!) were the best investment I made on our wedding.

    ADVICE: HIRE SML IMMEDIATELY. It is worth every penny. We watched the Same Day Edit at 4am when we finally made it back to our honeymoon suite the night of the wedding, and, well, needless to say, my hubby watched it 4 times and balled like a baby. We show it and our highlight film to everyone that comes over and we hear this every single time: "That is the coolest wedding video I've ever seen."

    He's flexible, fun, smart, talented, and was totally willing to work with us on payments, and as a result, we were able to have the video of our dreams. and THANK GOD we did, because our wedding photos were not what we expected and could not even compare to Weddings by SML. SML's video saved the day!

    I really cannot say enough good things about him--I am already saving up for our Family movies from his Bliss Films company.

    Don't believe me? check out our video for yourself, it is SO AWESOME!

    Weddings by SML was highly recommended to me by friends so I knew right off the bat that I would have a great experience with them. Steve definitely did not fail me. Everything was beyond outstanding and his Same Day Edit was the talk of the wedding. If anyone has the chance to include this in their package, I definitely recommend it. Steve was always prompt to return calls as well as return e-mails during the planning phase. He has a truly creative eye that helped me smooth out some of the ideas that I had. In all honesty, I had less than a month to plan my wedding and I did not need to provide too much directions. He took care of everything. He completely satisfied my overall expectations. One more thing is that he worked so well with other vendors such as our photographer and dj and I thought that was really important too. If anything, I recommend to book Weddings by SML asap coz they may be booked! Good luck!

    My wedding video turned out beautifully! Steve knew exactly the right shots to take to make a perfect video. He was on-time, professional, and he worked great with my other vendors. He constantly kept me in the loop of what was happening. His website made everything very easy. The video was professional looking, perfectly edited, and included great music! He was able to edit out a really long best-man speech and still make the video look flawless. The outtakes he put at the end were hilarious. And the presentation of the DVD's when they arrived was really nice. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the money on a videographer, but now I'm so glad I did. The wedding day was such a whirlwind; it was really nice to be able to watch it after and see all the things that I missed while I was busy being a bride. The trailer was blogged less than a week after my wedding and the DVD arrived about a month later. My family and friends all loved it, and my husband and I had a great time watching it together.

    Met with Steve prior to booking and when he showed me the quality of his work, I was sold immediately. Has different plans to choose from and while we did pick the most expensive, we picked what fit our pocket book. My husband was leaving for deployment and we were under time restraints to get the DVD back. Even though we were promised it back in six weeks, my husband was leaving four weeks after our wedding. Steve provided us a raw version so my husband could see it before he left. It was almost as good as the finished version. Very professionaly, unbelievable quality. You cannot go wrong with this vendor. His videographers were like they were not there, never in our way, never demanding, just top of the line.

    WE sent the video out to family members and friends and they all loved how it turned out, very pleased with the style and knowledge of the camera man.
