Here are a few comments from some amazing couples…[columns] [column width=”one-half”]
“Ken Sipes with media59.com was absolutely amazing! We were married in Napa, California at the Mario Andretti Winery in April, 2016. Ken made a point to communicate with me while I was in the planning process of our elopement schedule and made me feel very much at ease during the process of pulling it all together. He spent the day with us quietly capturing every incredible moment as we enjoyed our most special day. Hiring a videographer was a last minute decision and the choice was made because we wanted family unable to attend to be able to enjoy our wedding as well. I can say this is the best money I have ever spent!! We purchased a highlight film, and Ken did such a great job with it. He included our ceremony along with music and special moments between myself and my now husband throughout our elopement day.
Don’t just get the photographer, make sure to add on a videographer for your event!! YOU WILL BE SO THANKFUL YOU DID THIS. Photos are awesome and you will keep forever, but video allows so much more to the recollection of your day and helps to bring back all of those incredible feelings you experienced in each moment. If I could give Ken a 10 I would, but the recommendation only goes to 5 ;-)” ~ Kim

“There are not enough words to express our appreciation for Ken. We think we were extremely lucky to find him. He is easy going, honest, professional and very good at his work. He gave us a package that was just right for us. He put together a 4 minute montage combining still photos and video footage. It is a beautiful and moving piece and exactly what we were looking for. The first time we saw it, we were literally reliving our wedding. But it is not just the beautiful video he made that made it special. Ken is a genuinely nice guy with a great videographer’s intuition. With each step he showed he wanted to make sure he gave us what we wanted and that we had his best work. He made sure we spoke before the wedding about what we were looking for and when we saw the final product it was exactly what we wanted and more. He arrived early to get scenery shots, made sure everyone had the the right microphones, set up multiple cameras to get shots from different angles, and worked flawlessly with our photographer. We will keep watching our movie over and over again and are very lucky that Ken agreed to do our wedding video.” ~ P+T[/column] [column width=”one-half”]
“Ken was fantastic at our wedding! I wasn’t sure if I could afford a videographer, but they have very sensible prices. After the wedding, when everyone left, I was comforted knowing that I had videos of all my loved ones and could watch it any time. One of his additional services is a video booth so that everyone can leave sweet messages for you to see later – I like this a lot more than a photobooth. Ken was very professional and knew my wedding schedule better than I did. At the reception I was so overwhelmed, and just having a good time, that I almost left to take photos right when cake cutting was supposed to happen. Luckily Ken was there and reminded me, so I didn’t end up missing my own wedding! He also has great suggestions throughout the day – such as where best to stand for photos or for the guests to see us cutting the cake. I really see a big difference in the photos & video with all of his suggestions.
I really think a videographer is one of those things you may regret not doing, and Ken is amazing at what he does. We got the finished video a lot faster than I expected and I am able to send it to all my loved ones that could not afford the trip. It’s really meaningful to be able to share that day with them. If you have relatives that can’t make it, maybe grandparents who are bed ridden, consider a videographer so that you can share the day with them. Ken is very professional, knows what he is doing, and is one of the nicest vendors out there. You’ll be happy you booked him!” ~ Vanessa
