When my friend told me about Hakim and Sons Video, I knew that it was the unique type of work that I had been searching for to record my wedding memories. I looked at some clips on your website and fell in love. I did not want the typical wedding video, I wanted a video to take my breath away… I wanted art. I knew that my parents wanted to give me exactly what I wanted but I knew that would mean stretching the budget and I just couldn’t do that. I decided to go with another videographer and soon regretted the entire experience. When I spoke to you about my wedding venue, all though you quickly discovered that it didn’t seem as if it was going to work out, you still gave me your utmost attention and respected my time. You answered all my questions in a timely manner and did everything in you power to help me make it work. When I was working with the videographer that I was instead going to hire due to budgeting issues it was a nightmare to say the least. There is really no need to go into details and re-live the whole fiasco but needless to say I knew that this is not the way I should feel about my videographer.
Finally it was the night before my Pithi and at midnight, I decided to check my e-mail and to my horror, there was an email from the videographer I hired saying… “I hope all is well…” however his camera men were no longer available for my wedding and that he was sorry. I was STUNNED. I just sat there looking at my computer screen before I sobbed uncontrollably. I didn’t understand how anyone could do such a thing to a bride the night before a ceremony and in an e-mail!! I didn’t know what to do. The next day a friend covered my ceremony for the video and Luke Edmonson from Edmonson’s Photography made one phone call to you and you came to the rescue and saved my wedding. Not only did I get the videographer of my dreams, but you brought a second videographer to cover activities from my husband’s side so my in-laws helped cover the costs making it affordable as well. My parents were able to fulfill my wishes and didn’t have to break the budget after all.
Throughout the entire experience with you I have never felt more at ease about my wedding. You went above and beyond what a videographer does. It felt like a long time friend was by my side, compassionate, understanding and always with my best interest in mind. Then when my husband and I watched our wedding video highlights it was so much more than a video… it was a movie. I was literally moved to tears and I knew that God did everything for a reason and he found me exactly what I was looking for in a wedding video. I want to thank you for everything that you did for me and my family. I know that one day when I show our children our video that they will feel like they will truly feel like they are watching art and the memories and feelings will be just as fresh as they were that day.
