Having a videographer at our wedding was one thing I wasn’t prepared to compromise on and knew Avodah would be my top pick. I felt super lucky that our date was available and we were able to go ahead and book this dream team. From the day of contact until current the communication and professionalism has been second to none. Nate + Bebe have listened to everything I said, did a location scout, came to our rehearsal and were absolutely incredible to have around on our wedding day. The third shooter spent the day with the boys and guests and people spoke fondly of him also. Their presence was so calming and felt like having friends around me on the most special day ever. Wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to video our wedding day and I am beyond excited to see what these two create.

Nate + Bebe are absolutely outstanding. They were our wedding videographers and were absolutely the best to work with. They are true professionals, from meeting at the venue a couple of days before to work out the set up, to offering to capture a small pre-wedding event the day before, to how nice it was on the day being able to relax and know these two have you covered. Not only that, but the videos we’ve got have completely and utterly floored us – 100% blowing away our expectations and they have given us memories that will last us and our families forever. Again, the videos they have produced are second to none. Nate + Bebe are genuinely the nicest people, complete professionals, first class cinematographers, and I could not possibly recommend them any higher. Thanks so much team!

Highly recommend the Avodah team, they are amazing! We used them for our wedding and from the beginning through to the end they offered endless support, advice and guidance. On the day itself we felt in safe hands and their experience and professionalism shone through and allowed us to relax and enjoy the best day of our lives! The photos and video are just beautiful, it’s like re-living the moment, truly first class and is something we will treasure forever. Thanks Avodah for your outstanding work in capturing our wedding day so perfectly.

Avodah have got your back! Nate + Bebe were available the day before our wedding to take a look around the venue and check out photography spots with us when we discovered a small issue with the outdoor aesthetics. With 3/4 of the angles taken up with temporary eyesores (a giant stage and shipping containers for a concert) Nate + Bebe managed to find us a beautiful new ceremony spot that worked perfectly with the sunlight, as well as on-site bridal party photo locations, and managed to keep us calm at the same time! We are so grateful. The following day, Nate, Bebe, Kent + Aaron worked seamlessly, sneaking around us and our guests, capturing our day - the talent in this team is next level! Our photos, teaser and feature videos are truly amazing, and our day was captured so beatifully. We are so stoked with what Avodah have given us, and highly recommend them and their fusion package for weddings! We had so much fun with you all - thank you for being a part of our special day! A+J
