    Amazing company that produced an amazing video for our wedding! John (owner) was great to work with throughout the whole planning process. They were willing to come down to the kankakee area to shoot our wedding and they stayed with us the entire time. Since we were far from their studio, John was willing to make time to have a phone conversation to discuss what we wanted in our video. Our wededing was in August and we got back our videos in a reasonable amount of time (~5 weeks). The highlight and trailer for our wedding was perfect and we could not be happier with the final product!!!

    First off, get a videographer for your wedding. It was one of the best decisions we've made. Secondly, go with Smiling Toad! My wife and I got married at Salvage One this March. Smiling Toad was the most accommodating, customizing, affordable, and professional videographers we had encountered. The process prior to the wedding was seamless. John at Smiling Toad was quick to answer all of our questions and offer great options for music to include in the trailer and highlight film. During the wedding, the two videographers were extremely professional and skillful in their craft. ...

    Thanks again, Smiling Toad, for being a part of such a memorable day and allowing us to feel like we are reliving our wedding every time we watch your videos!

    We could not have made a better decision than to go with Smiling Toad to capture our wedding day. Almost a year out from our wedding and I still watch the videos all the time - John and his team were a joy to work with leading up to and on the wedding day (they were ninja-like on the actual day too - very stealth and still managed to get every moment!) and the videos are incredibly professional and gorgeous. To top it off, they were extremely prompt in delivering the videos. We couldn't be more grateful to Smiling Toad for our beautiful videos and we will treasure them forever (can't wait to show them to our grandkids!)

    Advice to future bride/groom-to-be's: don't think twice about hiring them for your own wedding!!!

    After many hours of sifting through vendors to hopefully find the perfect videographer, we found Smiling Toad and hoped we made the right choice. There were only so many videos from all the vendors we could watch and there was something about this company that really caught my attention. From the beginning, John was very responsive and helpful with all questions and his team was very professional the day of the wedding. I still had NO idea how this video would all turn out...and WOW!! ...
    Thank you to John and his team for capturing what was one of the best and most memorable days we will never forget! We can't wait to watch this video over and over again and throughout our marriage. Thank you!!!
