We used Smiling Toad as our videographer for our wedding on Saturday, August 17, 2019 in Lake Forest. John was pleasure to work with leading up to the big day. He listened closely to what our vision was and what we cared about, and he ensured that his team delivered what we wanted and truly brought our vision to life. John was very patient and helpful thinking through all the details of the big day and ensuring we had an air tight plan and timeline. The team was very responsive throughout the planning process as well as in correspondences after the event. I really appreciate their thoughtful and timely communications and all around professionalism. The two videographers who captured our day were a great balance of calm and assertive, ensuring they were not getting in the way of the “natural” moments but also giving enough guidance to capture all the best shots. They both brought a positive vibe and they were a joy to work with throughout our day. From starting the day with “getting ready” footage of the wedding party, to capturing the entire ceremony at the church, to the excitement of cocktail hour, to the speeches and dancing at our reception, they did a great job capturing it all. Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives. We are so happy to have our wedding video plus all the raw footage. I know my husband and I will enjoy watching this footage for years to come. Thank you, Smiling Toad, for being part of our big day!
