I have known Ron Cogan personally for several years now and I have seen him at work as a videographer at numerous events, including our own son's wedding. In a word, Ron is terrific! He puts people at ease, he knows what needs to be done to ensure a superior product, and that's exactly what he produces — a superior product. In our case, the wedding video Ron's company did was the best one ever done for any of our children and my late wife enjoyed watching it over and over. Ron is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.
Carolyn Appotive - Wedding Cinematography with a JIB (July 2010)
I am writing this recommendation to anyone who may be considering using a JIB for their event. Having never seen a JIB before, I was concerned that it might somehow detract from the overall elegant atmosphere that we were hoping to create for this black tie wedding reception.
I am delighted to say that my concerns were totally unfounded. Not only was the JIB discreetly positioned and unobtrusive, but in talking to several of our guests after the wedding they told me that they did not even realize that there was a JIB in the room.
When I saw the initial footage my immediate reaction was WOW! The combination of High Definition image quality and the vantage points that the JIB allowed the camera to focus on made the video look like one that could have been shot on a full-length feature film! It was very professional looking, and the best part is that we got to see everyone on the dance floor at one time.
During the dancing, the speeches, and the entire reception, you could make out faces even at the outer parts of the screen. You really don't miss a thing, and that was our main objective. It was, in a word - AMAZING!
If anyone told me that they were going to have video done at their event and wanted top quality results, my recommendations without hesitation would be as follows:
1) Use High Definition Video
2) Make sure to use a JIB at the event if you want to capture everything.
Nathalie and Jason Charette Howard
We absolutely love our video! It captured our wedding perfectly and is much nicer than any others we have seen. We particularly liked the video quality, the lighting, and the editing, and especially the ending. The special effects were not tacky as is often the case in wedding videos. Your videographer was amazing! We hardly noticed him — he was extremely unobtrusive. Even our photographer said that he was great to work with. Please thank your team. We will be referring you to all our friends. Please feel free to show our video to any of your prospective clients and give them our phone number or e-mail address for a referral. It was definitely worth the cost to have such great memories!
Our wedding video was amazing. The last part made people cry—it was something out of the movies.
All we could say after we watched our wedding video was WOW! We are extremely impressed with the quality of your work: Mike did a fantastic job of capturing our wedding and Eric did a lovely job of editing. No still pictures could capture what you did in our video. We want to thank all of you for making our it MORE than we had hoped for…thank you, thank you, thank you.
Paul and Victoria
Thank you so much for our beautiful video! The final product is (to say the least) a work of art. We both had tears when we first saw it. And of course mother (back home) had public showings for all her friends. Thank you, Ron, for preserving this beautiful day…it’s wonderful going back to it, captured so perfectly.
Alison and Mike Blair
The ending of our (wedding) video—we loved it! Thank you for such a wonderful job.
Tammy and Tom Stathopoulos
We absolutely love our video. Tammy’s cousin from Lebanon had been unable to make it to the wedding and when she saw it, she REALLY regretted missing it! The special effects and sound impressed us all. Tammy and I love the “Memories” section. But our favourite is the wrap-up at the end — it’s similar to what sitcoms do on their last episode—recapping highlights from when the show first started. But the way you edited ours is actually better than some of those Hollywood production wrap-ups!
Anik and Wissam
Thank you so much for all your services. You and your team have been wonderful. We couldn’t have picked a better wedding videographer!
Kelly Carpenter and Eric Jelmag
Just wanted to let you know that we LOVED the (wedding) video! Our favourite part is the finalé. Very glad we added that. Thank you so much for a fantastic job!!!
Amanda and André Rochon
I’d like to thank you again for the wonderful work you did on our wedding video. It’s fantastic and I’m sure that everyone will love it as much as we do! You have helped to make our wedding memories a real treasure.
Vibeke and Dan McMahon
Thank you for your help and support on our wedding day. You said you would work as if you were not present and you were true to your word. And for that reason I am sure we will have some excellent viewing once the video is done. We can hardly wait to see the finished product!
What a well-done piece! Thank you so very much—we are very, very pleased. Had everyone in tears all over again! The final flashbacks were incredibly touching. It has been a great pleasure doing business with you (as they say). Thank you for preserving our special memories for us.
