Chris,Thank you for the wonderful 8th grade promotion/graduation video!  It's so great to be able to go back and watch it again. Not knowing that my son was getting an award, I wasn't listening carefully to what the principal was saying about him before he announced his name!  I love being able to go back to listen closely and treasure every word now! :)Thanks again for a great video, my family and I really appreciate it!

My organization has used Custom Video Connection (CVC) to film our annual conference for several years now. Each time we have found CVC (and Chris Hennessy in particular) to be responsive, attentive, and easy to work with. Not only can we count on him to work with our staff, but he also communicates well with other AV vendors to ensure that filming for the conference goes smoothly on the day of. We look forward to working with CVC again in the future.Thanks, Chris! More...

I contacted Custom Video Connection (Chris Hennessy) to video my mother's memorial service. I knew from my father's passing that a video personally helps me in the grieving process, and it is also good to send to relatives who are geographically dispersed when they want to share in the memorial.  I was impressed with the professionalism and sensitivity of Chris from the start and throughout the process. Tim, who did the camera work, quietly included me in his set-up plan, then was so unobtrusive throughout I didn't again notice he was there; his camera work was perfect and creative in his choices. All of the file production was done by Chris, who made suggestions for combining the photo album and adding music to the memorial film. It made for an all inclusive, beautiful, and moving memorial DVD. I am extremely grateful to Custom Video Connection. Memorial/funeral services are not "fun events" but they hold lifelong memory and meaning especially when it is someone so close to us.  Thank you Chris, and Tim, for your beautiful work.  The pricing was very reasonable, and he accepts various payment options.

We hired Chris as a videographer to capture our wedding and he did an excellent job!  Chris was easy to work with, put in extra time to learn the venue prior to the wedding day and made a wonderful video without needing any extra input from us on the wedding day (which felt like a very busy day already). Chris always gave prompt responses when we had questions and delivered the edited video shortly within a couple weeks. It was obvious Chris had done this many times before and we could not have been more happy with the final result. More...

Chris recently did a client testimonial video for the non-profit organization I work for. We were crunched for time to get the video done, had multiple locations to shoot at, and multiple people's schedules to work with. Chris was a stellar professional through it all. He was flexible to accommodate our editing timeframe, was wonderful working with the clients being interviewed (children and adults), and had great ideas for filming, including being able to take the interview questions he was provided for the clients, and expand beyond them in the moment during the interview.The video Chris made for us was used during a fundraising dinner and made a huge impact on the audience. His skills at pulling out the "gems" from the client interviews and weaving them all into one cohesive story, was a huge factor in our successful fundraising event. Chris' awesome personality and professionalism makes creating a video an easy and fun experience! More...

Our wedding day was perfect and a huge part of that was Chris and what he captured of our day. When we watched the video back it gave us tears, smiles, and the overall feeling we were right there again. The short version and highlights video (15min+) is amazing to show to friends and family, while we loved cozying up and watching the full 1hr + version together. Chris was professional, on time, engaged our guests, got a good variety of everything that was happening on the day while being non intrusive, and he was just plain awesome! Highly recommend Chris to be apart of your day. If you are thinking of saving money somewhere,  don't let it be with the video/photos- it is how you'll relive the day and remind yourselves how special it was. Thank you Chris for all you did to make the day special. More...

In my 12 year career, I have never met anyone more dedicated to their clients than Chris at Custom Video Connection.  I run an adrenaline park brand called House of Air. Chris filmed, directed, edited, and produced 18 videos for our employee video training series. We are a growing company, but still small enough to need personal attention. When we decided to franchise and expand, we knew we needed standardized employee training. We researched and interviewed several video production companies, and we were immediately impressed by Chris' energy, passion, and personal connection. Chris produced nearly 3 hours of finished product for us, broken into several distinct video segments. He coordinated videographers and a drone operator for us to get the best possible raw video footage to work with. Chris' guidance was vital in helping us to understand the best teleprompter setup, scripting, and lighting, as well as which of his microphones to use in which takes to produce the best sound. I worked very closely 1-on1 and directly with Chris on the video editing process, because I'm a very picky client, and he was very patient with me - he wouldn't stop until the finished product was edited exactly to my specifications. That being said, I also know he has several clients who are happy to let him make all of the editing decisions, and if that is the case, I can assure you he will make you a great video with very little effort on your end. I attached a few stills from our videos to this review. He included drone shots, cutaways, text-on-screen and good transitions and titles in all of our videos. We just recently finished training our first wave of new hires at our new locations, and they LOVED the training videos. Our Operations Managers are also thrilled that they now have a standardized tool to use so that all employees receive the same information every time. I'd highly recommend Chris and Custom Video Connection for any of your video needs. You can contact me personally if you want more information about my experience hiring Chris. More...

Having been in the radio and television industry for over 20 years, I know the importance of a talented videographer. Chris is a master at working with people creating an end product which is both professional and warm. Chris Hennessey encourages even the most camera-shy people to open up . That is a talent. I would recommend his company to anyone.Katy LeaverKGO RadioGo!Kat!GoBand More...

Custom Video Connection (Chris Hennessy) was contracted to help write, film, and edit a short ten minute video tribute to be shown at Auberge du Soleil in Napa duringmy daughter's wedding reception.  Chris was awesome to work with as he was a quick wit and a good listener.  He was able to help enhance the original concept during thefilming process and the real magic was the job he performed in edit.  My wife was a little skeptical that the project would get done on time and was very surprised and extremely relievedwhen it was shown at the wedding and the entire audience was in stitches.  Her first words were Chris pulled it off!We can't thank you enough Chris, the video was the hit of the reception.

If you are looking for a videographer for your wedding stop looking and call Chris and Custom Video Connection.  I can't say enough wonderful things about the wedding videos he created for our wedding.  Vendors - He worked smoothly with all of them and everyone had nothing but great things to say about working with Chris...DJ loved him, photographer loved him, staff at Los Gatos Lodge who suggested him to us.There were a few moments of the wedding that I knew ahead of time I wanted captured, my husband receiving a gift of lego viking cuff links from me, the ring bearer dog and flower girl dog heading down the aisle and finally me hitting my husband with silly string after we cut the cake!  All the moments were captured perfectly, the dogs were the best because they had some issues and them going all the wrong ways based on the clicks coming out of the speakers was captured and very precious for me.  The editing was seamless, the music was awesome!  He took the song that I wanted to be our first dance (dance teacher said it wasn't right) and had that playing on the video when our first dance took place, it was amazing.If you hire Chris you can't go wrong, it's your wedding and he will do a wodnerful job capturing your special day.  Thanks Chris for the wonderful memories you put together for us.

I cannot thank the Chris & Custom Video enough for taking care of my clients the last 3 years. I've owned a event planning business for over 11 years and have worked with numerous videographers. I understand what it takes and what is expected to make a event  turn out as perfect as possible. The amount of pre-planning and organization that Chris represents is always so straight forward and flexible. I rate this company at a 5 star service and Chris creates that atmosphere every event!

My husband and I hired Chris Hennessy at Custom Video Connection to be the videographer for our wedding, and we couldn't have been more pleased with his work! From the very beginning, when my mom and I met with Chris several times before the wedding, Chris was always open to our suggestions and helped us envision what the final product would be like. When he showed us various samples of his past work, we knew that we were in for a treat. On our wedding day, Chris and his assistant captured all of the important moments and were very professional. When our wedding DVDs arrived in the mail, my husband and I, along with our parents, were blown away. The footage was spectacular, and the presentation, along with all sorts of nice touches, was beautiful. I know that Chris put in a lot of long hours in the creation of our video, because it shows in the amazing final product. If you are looking for a professional, hard-working, extremely creative videographer, then be sure to pick Chris and CVC! More...

I hired Chris for my company's Hall of Fame dinner. He did a great job - researched the location and event beforehad and asked all the right questions. We were thrilled with the interviews he did at the event. We need the video quickly and Chris was able to deliver. I would recommend Chris and his company to anyone needing video recording. More...
