With some weddings, I can tell that every single detail has been careful planned out to ensure the day is perfect; and this wedding was nothing short of perfection, guests were happy, we had time for both photo & video, there was even dancing and fireworks(if you consider sparklers a work of fire)! It started off as a beautiful brisk sunny day in Phoenix where Karen was taken from the Westin to the ceremony at St. Francis Parish in a Porsche, followed by Mariachi Pasion serenading everyone into the Phoenix Art museum. Guests enjoyed a free cartoon artist during cocktail hour before moving into the reception hall for an eventful night. Not only did I get to enjoy a reception in a museum, I got to know Karen and Ivan much better through a night full of speeches, dances, and live music. On top of that, I ended up filming one of their friend’s weddings and got to see them years later dancing the night away at the Paseo venue. Happy 4 year anniversary Karen and Ivan!
The wedding team!
Karen Said, “Daniel is AMAZING!!! I found Daniel because he made the video for a friend’s wedding and when I saw how amazing it was we knew we had to work with him! Not only did he take time at our wedding (he was there over 12 hours) but he also took extreme care with our wedding video! He made numerous edits for us and was so kind in the process. The first time I saw the wedding video it brought tears to my eyes! Every important moment was there and it brought a flood of emotions over me. My husband and I both had a laugh saying that Daniel made us look way cooler than we are in real life! 😀 Also, many guests commented on him afterwards that what he was doing looked so cool and they weren’t actually sure what he was doing! Maybe it is my ignorance with technology but I didn’t realize that the device he used looked pretty much like a camera to me but was actually a videocamera! Super cool and I can’t wait until I have another event where I can hire him!
I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Daniel! If you are on the fence about having a videographer for your wedding, DO IT!!! The video brings to life so much more than pictures can and the professional quality is so much better than having a friend or family member randomly record things for you. My husband and I agree that hiring Daniel was the best money we spent. We paid extra for an additional camera/cameraman to film our entire ceremony so we could have it from beginning to end which depending on what you want is also worth it! Oh! And Daniel isn’t afraid to move around to get the best shots! At one point he was climbing a brick wall in a suit to get an overhead view of the hubby and I! Hello dedication! And he dressed very nicely. I think it is so important that when you have a black tie wedding the vendors dress up as well. He wore suit pants, a suit vest, long sleeve button down, and tie. Fit right in with everyone! :D”
