Why do couples love working with you?
I personally know all the stress involved with weddings and I always want everyone to have nothing but positive memories from their day. I work hard to make sure that any of my couples know that I’m having a great time while capturing everything from their day! I can’t remember the last time I left a wedding where my face didn’t hurt from smiling so much!
What do you love most about filming weddings?
I absolutely love the stories, the little moments, and the love shared! I tell clients all the time that the days leading up to the wedding will seem to drag on but on the day of, you’ll blink, and it’ll be over.
How did you get started?
I have always had a love for making videos/movies and telling stories and after seeing a few older wedding videos I knew that I could do better and my motivation was born!
What 3 words best describe your company?
Detailed! Efficient! Fun!
What budget range do you cater to?
What is your favorite part of the wedding day to film?
The vows or the first dance! The love between couples is most transparent during these times. Happy tears are the best thing ever!!
Joe was an absolute delight to work with. Beginning with the consultation, you could immediately tell he is a genuine person anyone would be lucky to work with. He came well prepared with several examples of his work, my -now husband- and I didn’t even need to look at each other to know we were going to have Joe as our videographer. After the consultation, he was always quick to respond to emails, sweet and kind through emails, and easy to work with.
The day of, he was there early, he captured everything wanted and more, he dealt with a little stress of the bride (sorry, Joe) running a little late from the hair/makeup apt and he did so calmly and kindly and then had to hustle to set up his equipment. We had an outdoor beach wedding, the weather wasn’t awesome that day, very windy. Despite everything, when we got our video, our jaws dropped several times. The video was more than either of us could have imagined and beyond perfect. I don’t know how he created that video and so quickly, I’m not sure if he even slept for a few days. We were so giddy watching it, he made perfect song choices from our songs, he perfectly edited (cutting my awkward wedding jitter rambling during my interview, thanks!), and background choice.. just everything was magnificent.
Videography can be expensive but I am so happy we decided to budget in other areas to hire Joe, who was extremely reasonable. It turned out absolutely amazing and this is something we will have forever that shows everything you want to remember. I showed my family the highlight video immediately, my mother watched it twice and cried (happy cried) both times and then sent it to my entire family to watch – everyone loved it. You will be sorry if you do not hire Joe with Shoeless works for your wedding videography. Worth every penny and more! We can not thank him enough or find enough words for how grateful we are for the job he did. Perfection!
Oh my goodness! You guys are phenomenal, fantastic, out of this world! Superseded expectations is a complete understatement! We could never thank you enough. I got this literally 4 minutes after saying goodbye to Daniel’s boss leaving for his deployment tonight. With tears still in my eyes, Daniel and I rushed home to watch. This made my day! We can’t put into words how thankful we are! Beautiful!
I know how tiring it is to read review after review and try to make a decision for your big day, so do yourself a favor and stop looking for videographers here. Joe is hands down and the best you’ll find! I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about him. Like everyone else has said, from the moment we met Joe, we knew we had made the right decision.
After talking to several videographers about price and packaging (who claimed to be reasonably priced and wanted 4,000 for a highlight video), Joe explained all that he offers and for such an affordable price. We almost went without a videographer because we were so disheartened by the other quotes. However, not only was Joe affordable, but he was genuine. You could tell he wasn’t just going to go through the motions of filming but really do his best to capture our day. And he did just that. The videos turned out better than we could have ever imagined and were waiting in the mail for us by the time we got back from our honeymoon. We can’t stop watching them!
Joe made us so comfortable, was easy to talk to, and more like a friend than anything else on our wedding day. Guests still talk about how much they loved our videographer and how he felt like part of the family! He kept us laughing through the stress of getting all the details together, and after talking about how hungry we were post-ceremony during picture taking, came bearing sausages from the reception! Haha! Joe is a rare find. If nothing else, invite him to your wedding!
