"Reid was an absolute pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding he was accessible and more than happy to work with us as we ironed out details for the wedding. During our wedding Reid worked closely with our Photographer coming up with creative and unique photos and video footage. Because of this, Reid was able to produce a wedding video that not only do we love and cherish but our family and friends have commented on how much they love it as well and brings tears to their eyes every time they watch it. Reid even took time to help us make sure that we were able to embed the live stream of our wedding onto our wedding website so that our family and friends who live in different states and another country could watch and still be a part of our very special day. Reid is a courteous professional who is extremely talented. We can't recommend Reid enough if you are looking for a videographer who will be able to capture your special day."

What a special wedding day for Alex and Erin.  Located directly on South Lake Union, The College Club of Seattle (a rowing club) is a truly remarkable spot to hold a wedding ceremony!

I did by best to tie in some of the nautical and boating aspects of the venue throughout the video, starting with the details at the beginning.  I still love the shot of Erin's dress hanging in the boat storage room downstairs as well as her garter belt dangling from one of the oars nearby.

A beautiful sunny Labor Day weekend (not always a given in Seattle!) as well as a wonderful group of vendors made this a wedding for the memory books!  Check out their highlight video above to see all the love and joy from their wedding day for yourself!

"We were so happy with our trailer and full video that Reid made for us. Having a videographer was really important for me for our wedding, but in looking around, it seemed the cost for what you were provided was just not feasible. Until I saw Reid's site. He goes above and beyond for his couples and his turn around is SO FAST! We loved watching our trailer on our honeymoon, and saved our full length film until we got back so that we could watch it with family and friends. I loved every minute of watching it, and getting to see moments of the day that I never saw on the actual day. It was so special, and I would recommend any couple to Best Made Videos!"

Kimberly and Henry's wedding last August at the Des Moines Yacht Club was laugh-filled and dripping with all sorts of love and devotion.  Kimberly had a vision for her wedding day, and from the start that included videography.  Incorporating in some aerial drone video work of both the beautiful scenic views of the venue as well as shots of the wedding party and couple add some fun and creative flair to this wedding video.

A beautiful first dance as well as a gorgeous sunset photo session before closing out the night really make this a wedding video to remember.  I'm so glad that Kim and Henry chose us to be a part of their wedding day and I hope they are able to enjoy their wedding video for years and years to come.  Enjoy!

"When Ron and I planned a last minute surprise wedding Reid was awesome to work with. He let him know upfront that we had a unique situation with our surprise wedding and a very sick child with cancer.. We wanted to make sure whatever video we got that it not only mirrored the love we felt, but offered a lot sentiment to both our children and all others who would see it. Reid went above and beyond with editing and giving us all the clips we wanted, He even did last minute edits upon request. The video turned out amazing and we will cherish it forever. It will give our young kids a forever memory. It also gave many of our friends a family a view of our wedding, which was awesome since we had a very small wedding party. Our 3 kiddos have already asked to watch it several times. Reid did a fabulous job at being sensitive to our needs and also giving us everything thing we asked for. The surprise wedding when off without a hitch and we have had the coolest comments about the video. Many people have adored it. Thank you Reid!"

Ron and Desiree's surprise wedding was one of the most emotion-filled wedding days I have ever had the opportunity to take part in.  Planning their wedding in under 4 weeks all the while having a child in the hospital is no easy feat.  Ron and Des made it happen and the result is something truly extraordinary.  Read about the whole experience in Desiree's own words.  Their love, just like their wedding day is truly out of this world!

"How to Plan a Wedding in 4 Weeks: Just Make it a Surprise!

October 16, 2016, I walked into a restaurant and found my entire family and closest friends waiting for me. I turned to Ron and before I knew it he was down on one knee asking me to be his wife. 

Overjoyed with excitement, as the evening ended, Ron and I went back to his house and planned our "surprise wedding." For Ron and I, we did not have any desire to have a large wedding, we also knew without a doubt we were supposed to be married. The actual "wedding" wasn't that important to us. What was important was being married, getting our family under one roof, and starting our life together while honoring God, each other, our children, and our family.

Our story is unique for several reason -- As our relationship developed we knew Ron would fulfill the role as "Daddy" for my 5 year old daughter, Hartley. On the other hand one of Ron's twin son's, Vanny, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia, and for us it made more sense than ever to get our family together, united under one roof to create more stability for one another and our children.  

For us, there was no reason to wait! Our other option was just to run down to the court house immediately! And we did discuss that several times. 

The surprise wedding became such a cool options for us because it gave us a unique way to plan a small wedding, in a short time (4 weeks), while still making it incredibly memorable and honoring to our family, friends, and most importantly, our children. We also felt like nothing in our relationship was "standard." Every part of it developed it such awe inspiring way, thus getting our marriage started differently -- just made sense."

"Reid at Best Made Videos was so helpful throughout the whole wedding process! He worked wonderfully with our photographers and made the whole video process a breeze. Reid made sure to capture both the little funny moments and the big special moments. Our video turned out to be so unique and full of our personalities, we love watching it! The video was available to watch on our honeymoon and we are so thankful for that:)"

This is a cool wedding video.  Starting at the Alexis Hotel in Downtown Seattle, Caleb and Michelle got ready with their MASSIVE wedding parties.  What can I say, these kids must be popular!! lol  The large groups provided for plenty of wonderful candid moments as both the bride and groom got ready in separate rooms at the hotel. 

Heading down to the waterfront for a first look in front of The Great Wheel, Caleb and Michelle got a bunch of beautiful family photos in a very iconic Seattle location.  Plenty of tourists and onlookers were able to catch a glimpse of the fun time being had by all.

Their wedding venue, The Great Hall at Union Station was decked to the nines for a truly elegant wedding ceremony and reception.  Surrounded by all of those close to them, Caleb and Michelle tied the knot and had a brief moment of prayer, before exiting the venue as husband and wife.  

We were able to capture a few stunning portraits out front of the venue including an epic dip right in front of the old station, before the bride and groom made their way inside to dance the night away with 400 of their closest friends.

Caleb and Michelle were so relaxed and calm throughout the day, one would think that they get married every single day! lol.  Take a few moments to check out this fun wedding video, the music has a fun and youthful feel which really compliments this fun and unique couple and there's some fun detail shots and candid moments scattered throughout.  Enjoy!

"I am so happy I decided to book Best Made Videos! Reid was so great to work with. I was so torn about hiring a wedding videographer, I couldn't decide if that was something I wanted to do. Then a few months before the wedding I decided to go for it and I found Reid and he (thankfully) was not yet booked for my wedding date. I can't tell you how glad I am that I decided to have a videographer. It is so amazing to be able to watch a video of your wedding day. It gives you something that pictures can't. And Reid made us such a beautiful wedding video that I love watching it over and over again. If you are thinking about booking a videographer... trust me, you will be so happy you did and you can't go wrong with Reid of Best Made Videos."

This is a super fun, unique wedding video.  Alexis and Joe's moms were best friends years before they were born.  When one had a daughter and one had a son, they joked to each other that one day the two would marry.  Who would imagine that years later and life-long best friends already, that Alexis and Joe would marry each other in a day truly overflowing with love.  You see everybody else in their lives seemed to have been in on the joke from the beginning and they were all overwhelmed with joy that Alexis and Joe finally caught up with the program! 

To quote her maid of honor "Seriously, I hope it's ok that I pitch this story to Hollywood," because Alexis and Joe's love story is one for the ages, and it is the kind of story they base epic romance movies on.  Friends from birth and destined to be together, it only took them 20+ years to finally tie the knot!

I say this a lot but this is a one of a kind story, a one of a kind wedding and most importantly a one of a kind wedding video.  Enjoy!

"I'm so glad that my husband and I used Best Made Videos to capture our wedding day.  Most of the wedding advice we received was to make sure we secured an amazing photographer and someone we trusted. We didn't think about a videographer much, and we didn't originally budget for one. A couple of months before our wedding, I woke up one day with one of those AHHH feelings, realizing that I really, really, really wanted to have professional video from our most special day. We found Reid and Best Made Videos. I loved how his videos didn't have this over the top "cheesy" feeling that a lot of companies do. Each video felt unique to the couple of their wedding experience. I knew that's what I wanted. Reid was so fast in responding to our messages, meeting up, and going over the details with us. He was also more affordable, which really helped us take the jump. We're both a little bit on the shy side, and on the day of our wedding, Reid just stepped into the most special moments of our lives seamlessly, as if he was a comfortable friend. Nothing felt staged or awkward as I imagined it would, and he truly captured us and our personalities and energy. I am so grateful that we decided to have video of our wedding, and that we used Best Made Videos. Of course the pictures are extremely important, but the wedding video is invaluable to us. We continue to watch it often, and it's really the perfect and only way to relive your day. It all goes by so fast, and the video will help you hold onto all of the little details, moments, and special memories in the most perfect way. Thank you so much, Reid!"

What a fun, Seattle wedding video.  Amber and Michael met at Hotel Deca years ago. Michael was working with the staff at the hotel cleaning up after an event in the downstairs event space.  Amber was finishing up a performance when the two met for the first time.  They came back to that very room surrounded by their family and friends to tie the knot and celebrate an amazing wedding day.

From some fun hotel inspired detail shots to a beautiful photo session on the rooftop, there are some really fun moments that make this wedding video one of my favorite.  

Heartfelt vows from both Michael and Amber really helps to express the love and devotion both share for each other.  This was a wonderfully beautiful wedding day that I was happy to get to share with both of them.  Check out the video link above to experience all the love and joy for yourself!

"Absolutely amazing! I reached out to several companies but Reid was more than responsive and flexible and made me feel really good about working with him and his company. I HIGHLY recommend them, they came prepared with ideas for great videos and had an incredible response time from day one. Stop looking for a videographer and just call/email Reid with Best Made Videos. You won't be disappointed!"

Who knew you could have so much fun working!  On New Year's Eve no less!!!  Andrea and Gus threw was has to be one of the greatest New Year's Eve parties of all time, and then two people happened to get married!

A truly sophisticated black tie affair in Downtown Portland at the beautiful Embassy Suites brought together family and friends for a night of celebrating and love.  Andrea and Gus filled a room with joy and laughter as they stood in front of their closest friends to tie the knot and become husband and wife.  Touching, personal vows along with some beautiful imagery captured in the lobby make this a fun and unique wedding video.  

The bridesmaids and groomsmen were at the top of their game keeping the couple laughing all night, while the families of both Andrea and Gus were able to celebrate and take in all the fun that the night had to offer.

Working alongside the fantastic Kayley Hoddick was an added pleasure as we were able to capture and showcase the love and care that Andrea and Gus have for each other.  Do yourselves a favor and watch this video and experience all of the fun!  This party is one that I won't soon forget!

See their video testimonial here!

"In the beginning of our planning process for our wedding, we foolishly believed we did not need a videographer. I am so glad that mindset changed in time for us to find Reid of Best Made Videos. The theme for our wedding was "Halloween", and for a wedding with such a unique and awesome theme you need to have an equally unique and awesome videographer. Reid's style and way of editing is perfect. Shooting with him was fun and he worked alongside our photographer so well. His wife assisted him for our wedding day and she was an absolute delight to have for all the confidence-boosting! Reid gets your footage to you within 72 hours, which is so fantastic because I couldn't wait to see it! Everyone loved watching the video once it was finished, it was an absolute hit! I cannot thank Reid and his wife enough for being a huge part of our wedding day. If you are searching for a videographer, Best Made Videos is the videographer you want and need for your wedding!"

This is a cool wedding video, plain and simple.  RaKayla and Juan LOVE Halloween.  They love Halloween so much that they wanted to throw the ultimate Halloween Wedding extravaganza!

After years of planning and 2 days of non-stop decorating, their vision came to life. Complete with a fountain of blood and bones, to a pitch black wedding dress, their day screamed Halloween through every spooky detail.  

A highlight has to be their first look, when RaKayla scared Juan wearing a creepy mask. Juan tried to play it off as cool, but I was there and I will tell you I think he was shaking in his boots just a little bit.  

I am beyond honored to share this wedding video with you today and I hope you enjoy every creepy, crawly detail!

"Stop your search. You've found him. Reid is the best in the business. Reid brings kindness, creativity, and professionalism to all his videos. We did not have one complaint about the entire process of working with Reid. He was very patient and accommodating and the final product is to die for. His prices are VERY reasonable for his talent level and attention to detail and he's someone who I would highly recommend every time."

A lot of people get married in Seattle, there are plenty of amazing wedding venues to choose from.  Not many people get married in the middle of a street in downtown Seattle, which is exactly what Alex and Elise chose to do.  Shutting down part of Occidental Ave near AXIS Pioneer Square (the venue for their wedding reception) Alex and Elise held a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony surrounded by family and friends (including a few "looky-loos") right in the middle of the city that they love so much.

The ceremony itself was truly memorable, besides the incredibly unique location.  Alex and Elise had been together for years, they had been together so long in fact that part of Elise's wedding gift to Alex was a print out of all of their old Facebook messages where they had corresponded early on in their relationship. The love and time shared between these two led to some incredibly personal vows which left many in the audience in tears. I'll always remember the look on Alex's face when he saw Elise walk down the aisle.  His mouth was wide open and he even exclaimed out loud "that's AMAZING!"  

I was honored to help capture and share their wedding day with you and I hope you take a few moments to watch their wedding video!

"Oh my goodness!! That was so good!!! Jesus and I love it!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭"

"Reid was awesome! He was very professional, fun and created such a beautiful video for us! It took him two days and it was amazing! The video had everyone crying and I can't stop watching it!"

Watching this wedding video just makes me smile because there is so much love here. Erika and Jesus were barely able to get through their vows because they were so overcome with emotion.  The tears both of them shared is what makes this video so special.

Surrounded by family and friends, these two tied the knot at Historic 1625 in Tacoma, which is one of my favorite venues.  From Erika's fiery red hair, to their matching shoes, Jesus and Erika spent a great deal of time and attention on every detail for their wedding day and I tried my best to capture all of that in their video.

What really makes this wedding video special however, is just how happy and joyful everybody in attendance was for the married couple.  From thoughtful, caring toasts, to a live performance of "I'm Yours" by Erika's family members, all of these moments came together to create a truly one-of-a-kind wedding day and I was so happy to be able to capture it all on video.

I encourage you to take a moment to watch and experience this wedding video for yourself. The love and commitment these two have for each other is inspiring and I was so honored to get to spend their wedding day with them.  This wedding video is truly one for the memory books!  Thanks again Erika and Jesus.

“Reid did an incredible job on our wedding videography. He was the most flexible, down-to-earth videographer we talked to when we were in the planning phase (and we talked to several!). It was so refreshing to have a real person who could actually craft a custom package to fit our unique scenario, rather than all the other videographers who had a sort of one-size-fits-all mindset. Reid was very professional in his communications and organization, and his attention to detail really put my mind at ease with the process. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, he was always proactive with detail planning and quick to respond to any questions or feedback that I had–and honestly, he was probably more on top of things than I was. On the day of the wedding, Reid and his assistant both looked sharp and fit right in and stayed totally cool and collected even in the midst of pre-wedding organized chaos. He teamed up with our photographer, too, to capture various moments in both mediums. Reid really demonstrated his artistic eye in finding perfect locations for capturing footage (like this really cool alley behind our venue where we ended up taking a bunch of awesome photos!). The finished product was completed very quickly, and was better than we could have ever asked for. The videos–both the highlight reel and the full film–captured perfectly the roller coaster of emotions of the day, the joy in the air, and the love that surrounded us. Watching them, I had to stop for a second and remember that this wasn’t a movie I was watching–this really was my wedding, rendered picture-perfect under the artistic touch of Reid. In short: if you’re looking for a videographer to go above and beyond in capturing your wedding day story, work with you to fit your needs perfectly, and work proactively to keep the whole process smooth, choose Best Made Videos.”

Serena C. — January 25, 2017

This is a very cool wedding video.  Serena and David planned their entire wedding long distance.  David was stationed down in Arizona and Serena was up here in Seattle. Planning a wedding of any kind can be difficult, planning a wedding living in two different states could be almost impossible.  Luckily Serena and David’s strong love and faith got them through it all.  Their wedding day went off without a hitch, complete with laughs, tears, and a jaw dropping first dance.  See David and Serena met ballroom dancing and it was quite a surprise to myself to see this Army man cut it loose on the dance floor!  His moves will be tough to beat for any of the grooms in my upcoming weddings…

There is a lot of love here and I encourage you to check out their wedding video in the link above, you won’t be disappointed!

"Throughout our 18 month long engagement I thought about so many details big and small and truthfully didn't think that I wanted a videographer. I had a wonderful photographer hired and I didn't feel the need to capture our wedding any other way; that was of course until about a week before the wedding. I had a moment of clarity and realized I couldn't not hire a videographer. All of a sudden I knew that this could potentially be my biggest regret of the wedding and I didn't want that, we are only doing this once and I really wanted to not have a regret as large as this one hanging over my head for years to come. I quickly started doing some research and asked around to people I knew that had just gotten married and used a videographer. One of the names that came up a few times was Best Made Videos, so I called, talked to Reid and asked the crazy question of "are you available in 8 days from now to shoot my wedding". Honestly, I was embarrassed to even ask and figured there was no way. He then said, "yeah I can make that work". I couldn't believe that this perfect stranger moved his busy schedule around to fulfill my (kind of crazy) request! I was thankful then and beyond thankful after receiving the final product. I was shocked by how responsive and professional Reid was! I am in business myself and it takes a lot to impress me, and I can't even tell you how impressed I was! We then got the highlight version within a couple of days and Reid was in contact the whole time and worked very hard to make it perfect. He captured us and our wedding day perfectly! I can say I was one of those brides that thought I could take or leave a videographer and I am SO happy that I had a change of heart! This is will be something that my husband, family and friends will enjoy for years to come! The day goes by so incredibly fast and we will always have this to remember the best day of our lives. If you are looking for a wedding videographer, look no further! Thanks for everything Best Made Videos!"

This story starts on a normal Saturday morning last Summer.  I was getting ready to film a wedding, this time at the Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett when I got a frantic phone call. The bride explained to me how she was getting married the very next weekend and had begun having second thoughts about not having a videographer film her wedding.  I had shot her friend's wedding a few months earlier and ever since she saw that video she went back and forth about the idea of having a video for her own wedding.

I pulled up the bride's information on Facebook and quickly realized a few very coincidental details.  Not only was the bride's photographer my dear friend Arlene Chambers who I had worked with previously and was also booked together for another wedding a few weeks later, but the bride's venue for her wedding was ALSO the Monte Cristo Ballroom, the same venue I was currently standing in.  

I laughed as I explained this to the bride and she couldn't help but see the humor as well.  I finished up my wedding that day and quickly booked her for the following weekend.

Briannah and Drew's wedding went off without a hitch.  A beautiful venue of course, touching personal vows and amazing pictures and video both before the ceremony and after, as we were able to catch just a glimpse of the sunset in the middle of a crosswalk in downtown Everett.  

I love everything about this wedding video, like Briannah's nervous energy as she struggles to get her vows out without crying.  I love the look of joy in Drew's eyes as he sees Briannah walk down the aisle for the first time.  And most of all, I love the fact that Briannah and Drew made their own wedding shot, mixed it up and thew one back right before they were pronounced husband and wife.  It's small moments like this that really shine through in wedding videography, and it's these moments that my couples will get to enjoy through their wedding video for year and years to come.
