Past Couple's Comments

  1. I cannot say enough amazing things about Joel VanZ! After meeting him via Skype from Toronto, ON to San Luis Obispo California, we knew he was the perfect match for us. Don’t let his youthful face deter you. Joel was so incredibly professional, but most of all so so talented. He composed beautiful music that timed beautifully with our artful wedding video, he captured every important moment and more, and edited it so perfectly. Joel is an artist, he’s hip and if your looking for somewhat non-conventional, no cheese wedding videography, Joel is your man. We barely noticed him moving around us throughout the day and when we did interact, he was always a delight! I was engaged for over three years before getting married, all the while looking for the perfect videographer. After years of looking I found Joel!!! The subtle and bright softness to his films, eye for angles and artistic shots, unique and personalized music sets him well apart from the rest. I am so grateful to Joel for flying to Toronto for our wedding, for his hard work and for the memory we can keep for a lifetime on film. I’ve said a million times, I cannot imagine not having my wedding on film, there is so much you forget or miss during the overwhelming day. Photographs are also a must, but the words you speak, the tears your husband sheds, is simply not the same. Save for it. Get a videographer. Pick Joel, you won’t regret it! If you want to see for yourself, check out Joel’s blog, our wedding is Katy & Tyler. You’ll see what I mean!

  2. Wow. Wow. Wow. Words cannot even begin to describe how incredibly amazing and talented Joel is. We were BEYOND lucky to book him for our Sonoma Valley Wedding over Labor Day weekend. Even though Joel is based in Southern California, he made the trip up to the Bay Area for our big day. Joel was such a professional throughout the entire experience- from setting up initial calls/Skype conversations to discuss what we wanted from our video, to making our crazy wish of having the wedding filmed on a live stream come true. Joel was so on top of all the logistics and made the whole experience of working with him truly magical. His work is so romantic and natural, we really felt as though we could be our true selves in front of the camera. His work is exceptionally beautiful- his artistic eye is unlike many other wedding videographers. His style is truly incredible and you can really get a sense of who the couple is from his films. Everyone that watches our wedding video thinks it is an actual movie- it is THAT damn good. Thank you for the world class experience, Joel!
