Transforming Moments into Masterpieces

We had Yours Truly for both video and photo. Communication was great with everyone I talked to and they made sure to handle all my needs professionally. The 4 guys we had the day of our wedding made us feel comfortable and had us laughing throughout which made for some great candid moments! Our video brought me to tears because it captured the day perfectly and the way it was edited with our vows as the voice over was beautiful.

This company is wonderful to work with. We had 2 amazing videographers for our wedding on 5/27/23 who loved their job and captured everything we wanted. They arrived early and were so kind to us. The editing was great and we absolutely loved our Instagram and highlight videos, and so did everyone that we showed! They were also decently priced. I would definitely recommend them!
