"I can't believe I ever questioned getting a videographer- hiring Doug and Laura with Take One was absolutely one of the best decisions for our wedding! The day goes by so quickly and they truly were there to capture all the moments that made our big so special. They really captured every moment of our day, from the beginning early-morning getting ready shots, ceremony, grounds, and the party. Not only are they pros at what they do (they know all the right spots, lighting, and angles to get!) they are SO nice and made us feel immediately at ease. They also are total pro's and knew our vendors and location from prior work, so they were able to work seamlessly into our timeline, so as opposed to having to 'plan' moments, they were able to capture our moments naturally (while occasionally adjusting some lighting for better shots, of course!) We also received our teaser SO quickly (while still on our honeymoon!) and our full video package in only around 5 weeks later, which we were SO pleasantly surprised by and loved getting to relive our day so soon after. They really captured not only our day, but our personalities and what makes my husband and I "us." I cannot recommend them enough if you are even thinking of a videographer- you won't regret it!

- Elizabeth and Kyle

Anyone who had planned a wedding and didn't invest in a videographer told me that was their one regret, so I knew right away we wanted a wedding video. I was in contact with 4 or 5 potential vendors and from the very beginning Doug and Laura were so responsive, open to our ideas, and took the time to get to know us personally so that they knew they'd truly capture "us" on our wedding day. It was a no-brainer after I realized the level of service they were providing even before the big day. Planning a wedding in Ponte Vedra from Philadelphia was a lot easier than I thought because of our amazing vendors. As I got through the planning process I realized from watching other wedding videos that so much happens that the bride and groom miss, so because of this we had Doug and Laura come to our rehearsal dinner and welcome party as well. It really set the tone for the whole weekend to have them there and I'm so glad we have those memories documented. The entire weekend truly is part of your whole story. Doug and Laura are extremely professional. their investment options are very reasonable, and watching our video made me realize I barely knew when they were filming us which is so important. I can't say enough about how fantastic they were to work with and how thankful I am that we invested in a wedding video. Thank you Take One Productions!! We can't wait to follow you through the years to see all of the smiles we know you'll continue to put smiles on other bride and groom's faces!

We just got our wedding video back from Take One Productions and all I can say is WOW!!!! Hiring Doug & Laura to capture our wedding day was the best decision we ever made!! They were so fun and easy to work with and captured our wedding and our personalities in the best way. I’m so thankful we also hired them to attend our rehearsal dinner as they beautifully incorporated all the toasts made during that event. And they have a drone which is the absolute coolest way to get a shot of the wedding venue!! Thank you so much Doug and Laura for everything!!! Would hire you again in a heartbeat.

Other than saying yes to Bobby Cox, getting a videographer for our wedding was one of the best decisions I’ve made...

Take One Productions captured the best moments and even moments we never saw! There is so much going on that makes the day feel like a blur, so it’s awesome to be able to go back, reminisce, and relive that amazing day! The video package they provided is just incredible. Thank you thank you thank you! And thank you for the kind words in your post :-)

Also a huge thank you to Dana Goodson, our fantastic photographer, for recommending Take One. They were a great team! Stay tuned for her pics. Mind. Blown.

- Kerry and Bobby

I could not recommend Take One Films enough! my husband and I had a crazy journey getting to our wedding due to the pandemic. So after 3 wedding dates and 2 venues. We finally ended up at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island FL. But it was truly meant to be! and Doug was a huge part of that. We are obsessed with our beautiful videos and will watch them for the rest of our lives! he was also able to recommend an amazing photographer that they frequently work with and the whole team was seriously fantastic. My family and friends really cant stop talking about the wedding and now having these insanely beautiful videos to look back upon is the best!!!! We recommend them 1000 times over. Thank you SO much Take One Films!!!
