|I booked AVS for my June 2011 wedding. We spent the extra money to have our wedding captured professionally on video and I am SO GLAD we did! AVS did a FABULOUS job and they were wonderful to work with in every aspect. Being the Bride, I missed a lot of the details of my wedding day, details such as words spoken, special music and sounds of the day that cannot be captured by photography alone. Before we said our traditional vows, my Husband said some very meaningful words to me that were spoken directly from his heart. They were the most precious words I think I will ever hear in my life. Had I not captured them on video, they would be lost forever. Alpha Video Services put together a very artistically created, professional video with clips of every moment of that day. I can hear the laughter from the Bridesmaids in the dressing room, the harp music played by a life-long friend, to the emotion in our voices as we exchanged vows. I love re-living this momentous day in my life by watching it on video. My husband and I and our future children will love watching it for years to come. Alpha Video Services gave us a lot of value for our money and we were very happy with their work. They went above and beyond and took extra time in addition to the wedding video, by producing a “Love Stroll” and “Childhood Video Montage” for us. As far as I am concerned, videography should be a MUST and not be cut out of the wedding budget. Choose Alpha Video Services!|

|I am very glad I didn't listen to people that said I could just have a friend film the wedding. It was worth the money for the quality we got. The lighting was good too, especially since the chruch was darker. In hindsight, instead of choosing to have just the ceremony covered, now I'd choose to have some of the reception covered and the "first look". We were all very pleased with how the DVD turned out. Would highly recommend AVS!!! |

|With all of the special details that go into planning a wedding, the wedding video was the last thing we decided to include; and it was truly the best decision we could have made. Tony and Celeste at Alpha Video Services spent the time getting to know us and learning about our personalities. They were amazing to work with and the video proved that they not only listened to us but they really focused on making a video that reflected the things that were most important to us as a new married couple. |
Before the “big day” everyone warned us about how fast the wedding would go and how challenging it would be to take in every special moment. But it wasn’t the case for us because the video captured everything – from loving statements shared by family and friends, to the first look, the last dance and every personal and quiet moment in between.
Our day was perfect and Tony and Celeste helped ensure that we would be able to re-live the magic for the rest of our lives. Thank you!

|At first Paul and I were a little nervous choosing the Videographer for our wedding. Now looking back I’m so happy that we had Alpha Video Services do our wedding video for us! The quality was great and they captured everything we desired! It’s worth the memory for life! We were surprised that our wedding video was returned to us quickly! Celest and Tony are wonderful people to work with. We definitely recommend Alpha Video to all of you brides and grooms out there! |

|Tony and Celeste were amazing videographers for our wedding at Beacon Hill in Spokane. Their experience in the business for many years really showed throughout the entire process. They were clear in their communication and were always easy to contact. They also made sure to work in cooperation with our photographer, Nikki, which is really important on wedding day when timing is critical. Celeste also came to our rehearsal, so she was able to confirm last details with us, our wedding planner, pastor, and DJ, and gain familiarity with the location. The video turned out wonderful! The songs we chose for our processional, walk down the aisle, recessional, first dances, cake cutting, etc. were all used in the video to help us really remember our big day the way it happened. The copies of our video included a customized photo we selected for the label on our discs. We were also able to designate one of the videos as a Blu-Ray. They both went the extra mile to make sure that we were pleased with capturing our ceremony and reception. We would highly recommend them for your wedding or special event. |
