Out of all of the vendors that I dealt with on my wedding day, Terry was the BEST to deal with. He is not only an exceptional videographer, but truly cares about his clients needs. He was so easy to work with and made our special day so memorable. He is quick, friendly, and efficient. He made me feel totally comfortable and was able to capture everyone's emotions. Thank you Terry!!!! More...

We so appreciate you getting this video to us so quickly, Terry! It is artfully done, and we couldn't imagine a more honoring tribute to my dad. Very well done!In particular, I'm very happy with the different camera angles of the service... You even captured the impromptu moments such as the statue of Bob's big boy falling! The aerial shots of Mariners church were breathtaking and I had a big smile on my face seeing the way you ended the video of the service with one of the guests giving the "fight on" Trojans sign! The detail shots of the reception memory table and the food were artfully done. I'm so happy you captured those moments of my grandpa at the reception too.My mom and I were in tears after watching the slideshow. The songs you paired it with were beautiful and did not distract from the photos at all. We particularly loved how you ended with "I can only imagine"! This brought on the waterworks!Suffice it to say, we are thrilled with your work! You have been a godsend. I cannot recommend Terry enough. He is a friendly guy and great with communication. Thanks again for the wonderful work. More...

I would recommend Terry Wall of First Impressions for any video production.  His personable demeanor makes everyone comfortable (in front & behind the camera).   He is professional, detailed and kind.  His communication before and after the even exceeded all expectations. Terry provided candid and honest commentary related to our venue's lighting to set reasonable expectations for the quality of the video.  On the day of the filming, Terry arrived early and prepared.  The finished footage was received quickly.  Looking forward to using First Impressions Video again in the future!

Terry Wall of First Impressions Video is a great guy, and he will go the extra mile to make your video a top-notch production.  He was patient with the changes we required, and had the experience to fill in when we were unprepared or just didn't know what we were doing.  Be prepared (it's better that way) and you will get a fine product from First Impressions!

Terry recently shot a video for one of our corporate events at a local restaurant. The lighting situation at the venue was very difficult but he made the day a great success! Terry was a such a nice guy to work with and we can't wait to use him again for future events. I would highly recommend him! More...

Terry did an event that I recently attended and his work was excellent. The video and audio came out beautifully and the moments were perfectly captured. He is such a nice guy and so easy to work with at extremely reasonable prices. I would highly recommend him for your next event! More...


Every job is different! I go above and beyond to satisfy every client, and I LOVE happy customers! Aside from shooting good quality video (along with excellent audio, by the way), my greatest asset—according to all my clients, is my gift at getting people comfortable around cameras and related equipment. Speaking on camera is not natural, but I instill confidence with my clients, many of whom have never stepped in front of a camera!

I've had a camera slung around my neck since my wee years and have been around video and film for most of my adult life. I started with still photography which I studied while in the Marine Corps and learned--sometimes through trial and error--about the power of visual imagery as a compelling medium.

I produced several travel industry videos in the 90s, one of which ran for two seasons on The Travel Channel. I moved back to California in 1993 and continued to take on video projects on a part-time basis, but decided to launch First Impressions Video as a full-time endeavor in 2012.

People won't care how much I know until I demonstrate how much I care!
