I am so happy that I ended up getting a videographer for our wedding. Alex was great to work with and extremely professional. He sent us a highlight video within a week after our wedding and had our final video to us soon after. The final video blew us out of the water and the editing was absolutely amazing! Can't thank IQ Videography enough! More...

Alex and his crew were great! Very professional, yet down to earth and friendly at the same time. Once the wedding began, the crew blended into the back ground and was there and capturing every moment. The teaser and the feature film came out wonderfully and could not have asked for more. More...

Alex is amazing! He's super professional and patient.We had IQVideography for our wedding at Hakone Gardens. Alex was so nice that he came 2-hours earlier to shoot wedding preparation and captured great family moments. Another thing I'd like to highlight, is that although the wedding wasn't in English, Alex was very professional & patient that he spent extra amount of time trying to understand the language, and edited a great hightlight for us.We were really grateful to have Alex as our videographer. And we highly recommend IQVideography for your wedding! More...

Alex was our videographer for my proposal and my fiance and I were blown away by the video he made for us from that event. If you're looking for a great videographer who is responsive, pays attention to detail, and overall a great person to work with, Alex is your guy. More...

I always wanted my own wedding movie-like video. The wedding scenes were my favorite part when watching movies. When I saw the videos on IQ Videography website, I knew that was what I wanted. I was extremely happy when Alex said he was available on our date.From my proposal to city hall ceremony took exactly 2 weeks. The 5 attendees, my husband, and I flew from 6 different cities and from 3 different countries. It was a small intimate wedding, but there were a lot of planning and coordination to be done. The best part with working with Alex is his quick and patient responses with my emails. No matter when I asked him questions or for video adjustments, he would always reply within a couple hours or by the following morning (despite that there was time difference between us). He even adjusted the video several times to make it perfect. Both the photos and video were sent to me within 1 week time!The only time I'd say to keep in mind is to brainstorm and organize what you want to include in the video before the wedding day. And then just have fun on your big day. Alex would work his magic.Now I have this amazing video to share with friends and family. Thank you, Alex, for making my dream come true. More...

My husband and I are so happy that we booked Alex for videography! From the beginning, Alex was very kind and patient with the many questions we had. Alex's responses to our emails were in a timely mannered which is wonderful when you are trying to figure out wedding logistics. Alex was willing to speak with us via the phone if needed, butw we never did because he answered all our questions via email. Thus, we did not feel stressed when working with Alex before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Alex arrived on time to SF City Hall. In person, he is also very kind and made us feel comfortable with filming. He is experienced filming at SF City Hall, so if you plan on getting married there and want your special day captured, book Alex! You will not be disappointed. Once we got our video, we watched it multiple times and I shed tears every time because it came out so beautiful. Our loved ones also loved the video and complimented Alex's professionalism that day. Thank you again Alex! More...

We are happy beyond words that we chose IQ Videography for our wedding ceremony at SF City Hall. Alex was a pleasure to work with every step of the way, from the planning/brainstorming phase to the actual wedding ceremony, and thereafter. He has a unique talent for making a beautiful vision come to life by capturing moments that are most meaningful and mixing them flawlessly into an end result which is a video where these memories will last a life time. I know this sounds cliche, but he really is the best. Thank you so much, Alex!!! More...

Alex is amazing! My husband and I decided to get a videographer last minute and thankfully he was free on our date. I inquired online and he quickly reached out to me and it was so easy to get the booking done. Not only was he professional but his work is phenomenal. I paid for a rush job so we could play it at our reception the following weekend( 2 days away) and we got it the morning off and I was in tears when I saw it. It was so beautiful and touching. Were so greatful to Alex for giving us a beautiful video we can cherish for the rest of our lives. More...

Alex has been incredibly patient and accommodating to us from the start. We shared a general sense of what we're hoping the video would look like, and Alex just took it from there and filled in the blanks. He has significant experience filming couples at the San Francisco City Hall, everything from knowing exactly which floor and which balcony will provide the best aesthetic to what time and day you will have the best luck in capturing a majestic shot of an empty city hall. He was also very open to suggestions of filming in different locations to get the most interesting footage and flexible in editing videos to our exact liking. In terms of experience, knowledge, and videography skills, Alex proved to be the perfect choice. We were so thrilled by our wedding video. It's an added bonus that he's been so wonderful and easy to work with. More...

I have never sourced for videographers before and I was given very limited direction and it didn't help they weren't clear either. They were telling me it was an interview but called it a b-roll shoot and I didn't know any better, so I was trying to find videographer to do a b-roll interview. Alex never showed his frustration like another person that I found through Yelp, instead Alex remained cool and patience with me and never advised my ask weren't clear. Out of the seven videographers I sourced, he was the best one and the most professional. I had a lot riding on this project, since the Lead person on this project wouldn't been very happy and I definitely didn't want to upset her. I was super worried when I found out Alex wasn't doing the interview himself. But Alex sent Ben to do the recording and I know the clients were super happy with Ben. Long story short, Alex was extremely great to work with and he never came back and said that's not my job or I am not getting paid to do that. He always came back with solutions, like when I asked to see if he has a transcriber for the interview, he didn't just say No and period. He said no, but you can check out these sites for transcription services. He is seriously amazing, and I cannot recommend him enough. Super professional and patience. I highly recommend him for corporate projects and not just weddings! More...

If you are looking for a videographer for your wedding day, you found him - book IQ Videography and you will have such a perfect wedding video! More...

Alex was great to work with! He videoed our ceremony at City Hall with very reasonable price. We liked the original video he provided and had some suggestions for minor changes here and there, he's able to accommodate all of our needs and we are extremely happy with the final version. Thank you Alex!

I live in SF and was called to audition in LA for a recurring role on a major TV show. There was no way I could get there by 1pm from SF. They agreed to a demo reel. There is NOT a single actor demo reel service in the entire Bay Area. Shocking! I spent hours scouring the internet and finally decided, "aha"! a wedding videographer could easily do this for me. I was able to find Alex, who was on his way to the hospital to see his baby -- he waited for me and did my demo, which we were able to submit just before the deadline. This was just today, so I can't share any good news vis-a-vis the results of my virtual audition. But I can share that Alex is amazing! He did a fabulous job for me and my manager loved it! Actors, go to him! He's got the chops and is very personable! Thank you Josh! You're the best! Oh, and the quality of the video is five-star! More...

We got married on May 24th, 2018. We inquired with Alex 2 months earlier and he was very fast at responding and answered all of our questions. A few days before our wedding, we had a consultation with him over the phone about our vision for our wedding video. When it was finally our wedding day, he was very easy to work with. When it came time to see the final edit of our video (which took about 2 weeks later) we had some suggestions about adjustments we wanted to make and he did it fast and perfectly! He listens to your input and does what you want him to do for your video. We are glad we booked Alex. His pricing is very affordable and he does a great job. We highly recommend him! More...

When I first started our wedding planning and vendor research, my husband and I were a little hesitant about hiring a videographer because wedding videographers tend to be expensive, and we had a difficult time finding one with a style that we liked. We look at several online and watched so many sample videos! I came across IQ Videography pretty early on, but I kept looking around because we weren't sure if we were willing to spend so much money on our wedding video. After looking at every other videographer I could find, I kept going back to IQ Video. There was just something about their style and technique that really pulled us in, and we admired the way they captured the details of the day in the videos we watched on their website. When I inquired about their availability for our May 20th wedding at Casa Real, I was so happy to hear they were open! Just be sure to book them as soon as possible because there was another couple inquiring about the same date as us!It has now been a little over 2 weeks since we got married and we already got to see our highlights video! My husband and I watched it and cried! The way that Alex and Ben captured the emotion and details of our special day was absolutely perfect! The quality and the thoughtfulness that went into the production was amazing and these guys know exactly what they're doing. And to think, we haven't even seen the entire feature film yet!If you're not sure if you want to hire a wedding videographer and you're still looking around, then be sure to check out IQ Videography. You won't regret hiring them and it'll be worth every penny to be able to relive all the wonderful moments of your special day! Thanks again Alex! More...

Alex was a pleasure to work with on our wedding day. He was also very responsive via email leading up to the day, responding very promptly to any questions we had. As people who do not generally like being in front of the camera, he made us feel comfortable and at ease during filming. Although we were running behind schedule, he was flexible and accommodating. He was very professional and made adjustments to best maximize the time we had. Alex did a great job, and we absolutely loved the video he created! We highly recommend IQ Videography! More...

My husband and I were hesitant to book a videographer for our San Francisco City Hall wedding because we felt like wedding videos mostly end up a bit cheesy. However, after viewing the City Hall videos on their website we decided to go for it. We were not disappointed!Alex was incredibly friendly and easy to work with. He showed up right on time and got to work. After a little while, you barely notice he is there filming and you act very naturally. He knew all of the special spots in City Hall to get great shots and gave us great instruction on moves to do that would look amazing in our video. I asked for a special song for our video and he edited it all together so well; it fits perfectly. The video is refined and artful, just like we wanted. The turnaround time for the final product was very fast too. Highly recommend Alex if you are looking for a beautiful and tasteful video for your wedding! More...

IQ videography is one of the most sought after wedding videographer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Alex, our videographer is very professional and easy to work with. He understands client needs and offers his expertise without imposing. He has a knack of capturing special moments without being too invasive during the ceremony. As a result, we are very happy and satisfied with our cinematic wedding video. We strongly recommend Alex and his company!!! More...

Alex is a boss. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing on the wedding day and his team was super fun to work with. For our same day edit, he included almost everything from our tea ceremony in the morning up to our reception introduction. He got some crazy shots that were up close and personal, but wasn't intrusive. Every one of our guests LOVED the same day edit. We have not stopped receiving raves for it weeks later. More...

Our photographer/videographer Ben and his assistant were great and did an amazing job. I would absolutely work with them again! I hired IQ Videography for a surprise proposal on Corona Heights. At the team's request, I sent a map with directions of where we'd arrive and where I'd propose.On the day-of, Ben and his assistant arrived early and got in perfect position, and he emailed and texted me a photo to get my approval on the view (which also helped me know who to be on the lookout for). They blended in perfectly with the crowd and got great video of the proposal--my fiancee didn't suspect anything.After the proposal, they came forward and said hi, and we did a quick photoshoot that turned out great. Ben even brought out his drone, expertly maneuvered it in high winds, and got great footage that he added on to the proposal video. Thanks to them, we've got great photos and videos to remember our special day by.Ben and his assistant were the NICEST guys to work with. More...

Ben, Alex and the entire team were so easy to work with and made our dream wedding a reality. We originally were not planning to hire a videographer, but after seeing their work and the reviews we knew we had to bring them on board to capture our big day. I'm so happy we did!

I am a corporate video producer with 35+ years of experience and really had no idea who should do our wedding video. Based on what we saw and read on YELP, we went with Alex. I have to say we are thrilled with what he and his team delivered. My new bride was literally sobbing with joy while watching the video for the first time, and wanted to keep watching it over and over, as did I.Alex was a pleasure to work with before, during and after our wedding. He and his team were low-profile while shooting - it's like they weren't even there. Alex brought his drone and those shots were incredible - I recommend you go for that option as it helps make the video even more riveting - images you can't even imagine.He uses good cameras with good lenses and was always in the right place at the right time to capture another great moment. The dinner toast audio was challenging since we did not give anyone a microphone, and each person was facing in a different direction as they stood up around the table, but Alex was able to get all of the toasts in their entirety. Amazing.Bottom line: Alex really captured the look and feel and spirit of the wedding - what more can you ask? Great job and yes, we would highly recommend IQV for your wedding. More...

I totally recommend IQ Videography!!! My husband and I booked Alex as our wedding videographer and we absolutely love our videos and have really enjoyed working with him from start to finish. He is really nice, has a great sense of humor, and makes you feel comfortable when he's shooting. He worked very smoothly and respectfully with our photographer too, which is also important.  He is very quick and responsive to emails and he listens to what you want. He matches up the music to the videos so well, and his shots and transitions are so smooth and artistic. You can tell he is really passionate about his work. He really is worth the investment. You spend so much time and money on your wedding, and it is such a magical day that goes by in the blink of an eye, so you want to have great, beautiful memories when it's all over. Booking with him will guarantee that. You won't regret it!  You can trust him and rest easy knowing that you will have an amazing finished product you will be proud to share with your friends and family and watch over and over again. Now go book him before his schedule gets filled up! More...

Let's begin with this, if possible, I would give Alex and his team 6 stars instead of 5!My wife and I first saw Alex's work from our friends' wedding and were amazed by his work with the videos and camera skills. It wasn't until then when we had our first meeting with Alex to realize how great a guy he really is! Alex is really professional, responsive to emails and phone calls and ssuuuuppperrrr fun and easy to work with.Despite having our wedding at a venue that Alex did not shoot at before (Ruby Hill Golf Course), our videos came out amazing and it was as if he's shot at the venue 100 times before.Alex is truly a master and a wizard with his camera! We are very lucky to have our beautiful videos and can watch them years down in the future and still replay the day with every little detail.Thank you Alex and to your great team!! Definitely would recommend IQvideography to all my friends and family! More...

Let me first start by stating that I am a videographer myself. So picking the person that captures your day is truly a big deal. Without hesitation, I trusted in Alex to be our videographer. After spending a few mins on his site, you'll quickly see that he has a natural eye for interesting compositions and a keen sense of storytelling. On the day of the wedding Alex showed up on time and was very fun to be around. He captured the moments as they happened and offered many great suggestions when needed to get the perfect shot. We loved having Alex there to capture our wedding day! He is fun to be around and truly an amazing videographer! More...

I was worried before receiving the final video because honestly Alex was not very responsive to emails or phone calls. We did not have a chance meeting him or talking with him to nail down details before the wedding. However, I was amazed that Alex is so talented at capturing important moments and telling a love story based on the venue, atmosphere, and people. I will definitely watch the video again and again. The rate is towards the high end, but it is fair given the quality of work. More...

We were looking for a videographer for our wedding day and were at a loss, we couldn't find a one that could quite capture moments and tell a story with those moments so you'd really feel like you were there, reliving the emotion and excitement of the day. Then we came across Alex's video. He is simply amazing. His videos are able to capture the ambiance and feelings. We inquired for his availability and we were able to come to an agreement on a package that would suit our needs. (I am all about being able to customize and Alex was extremely accommodating and helpful through that entire process!) Wedding day: Alex came ready to work! He was super helpful in directing us when he needed different angles and shots to make us look as awesome as possible! He captured the excitement and love of our day taking lots of different shots to make sure he got all the best angles. He was pretty much invisible, clearly the mark of an experienced videographer! Wedding video: Alex is super fast! Of course right after the wedding we want to see the video. And of course combing through a hundred GB of footage is no easy task. His teaser video came out in two weeks. We were so excited to see our highlight video! A week and a half later our highlight video was ready! We were STOKED. I've watched it at least a hundred times in the past two weeks! Alex did an amazing job editing the video and I can really FEEL the excitement that I felt on our wedding day! THANK YOU Alex for making our video everything we dreamed! We will be able to relive our wedding over and over now! We are so grateful for his hard work and epic video, it was worth every penny! If you want someone who is dedicated to capturing your special day, look no further than IQ Videography! More...

People go back and forth on videography for their weddings because the thought is they'll never watch the video again. That's true if your video is boring crud.

We hired IQvideography (and IQphoto) for our city hall wedding. The footage Alex captured was amazing and the finished product with our choice of music was expertly done. We wanted a video that truly captured our day and feelings for all our family that couldn't attend.We had high expectations for this company given their sample work, but we were still blown away with the finished product. Alex was timely and knew exactly what shots to get. I cannot recommend them enough! You only get one chance to capture your wedding day-don't risk it by going with anyone else. More...

My wife and I got married at City Hall and decided to book IQ Photography mainly for the following reasons:1) Their sample photographs on the website looked excellent, and in line with what we were looking for. It was obvious that the photographers have real talent, and aren't hiding mediocre skills with filters and Photoshop.2) They have a dedicated City Hall section and are very knowledgeable about making the most of this beautiful location. Although San Francisco City Hall is a special and gorgeous location for a wedding, it comes with some challenges: tourists milling about, other brides and grooms walking around looking for places to take photographs, and less-than-obvious nooks and crannies to get amazing shots in. We wanted to work with someone who knew this place like the back of their hand and could guide us quickly and efficiently from location to location within City Hall.3) They offered videography to go with the photography. We wanted a wedding video too, and one-stop shopping and knowing that the photographer and videographer would collaborate effectively were important to us.Masha (admin/coordinator), Joseph (photography), and Alex (video) completely blew us away. We contacted them with not much lead time, and they were super responsive, easy to work with, super professional, and just really, really nice people. The day of the wedding was all business, but also a lot of fun. Joseph and Alex clearly knew what they were doing, and had a knack for directing us enough to get the shots we needed, but also giving us enough space to experience our wedding and have our special moment as it was happening.Alex will go over options for the video -- if you look on the website, you'll see some very fun and clever edits. We opted for the popular "music video" option, where he sets highlights of the wedding to a song of your choosing. It came out fantastic -- it's not cloying or fake at all, and the scenes flow naturally with a good story arc. We were beyond pleased.Weddings are happy and emotional occasions, and often also stressful. Hiring IQ Photography to document this once-in-a-lifetime occasion was the most successful decision we made planning our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the beautiful photographs and amazing video we now have to look back on this special day. If I could give Masha, Alex, and Joseph 10 stars, I would -- they are the perfect team to entrust with something as precious as your wedding day. More...

While shopping wedding venues, I saw another wedding video on a venue website that was made by IQ Videography... at that exact moment (without even knowing my wedding date or venue) I knew I NEEDED them to be a part of our wedding day. It's safe to say, choosing IQ was the easiest wedding planning decision we made...  My husband and I absolutely LOVE our wedding video. I don't think we can ever thank Alex enough for capturing all of these memories for us. This is a keepsake we will cherish forever. Alex was such a pleasure to work with, we could tell from the first interaction (via email) that his punctuality and professionalism would carry over to the day of (and that was one less thing we needed to worry about). His promptness in responding was a breath of fresh air while wedding planning, his email responses all came from him personally, and arrived within the hour. Even when we needed to change the time and details of our previously chosen package, he was completely accommodating... (and paying via Google Wallet is just an added bonus). We even received our highlight video less than a week after our wedding!!!The entire process, from booking our date to receiving our video, was a first class experience. Thank you Alex and Bed, you truly contributed to making our wedding a completely stress-free day! I will be referring IQ to everyone I know, getting married or not ;) Book with IQ! Alex is the a video genius :) I promise, you will NOT be disappointed..We chose the 10 hour package.. and it was WORTH EVERY PENNY! More...

We did the 2hr Video/Photo City Hall Weekday Package Combo.  The package is worth it.  BEFORE THE WEDDING:  They were responsive via email and phone.  They answer all your questions.  They have a quick and easy online payment system for the deposit.DAY OF WEDDING:  I asked them to arrive at 10:45am in front of City Hall and they were there on time and ready to go.  They are experienced with the layout of City Hall so they know how to utilize their time with the shots they want.  The package works well b/c you will deal with a team that often works together so it's ideal for this kind of setting where you have limited time.  The 2hrs were more than enough to capture enough shots before/during/after the wedding ceremony.  They (Alex & Alex)  were quick, professional, experienced, and pretty much decent dudes.  AFTER: The turnaround time for the final products are pretty quick.  You can also use their online payment system to pay the remaining balance.VIDEO:  I got my video hashed out in just a week and it was beautiful and awesome.  Alex is great at editing, he really captures special moments that compliment the music soundtrack that you choose for the video.PHOTO:  The photos, I received a preview slideshow (teaser trailer) in under 2 weeks and so far so good.  Alot of captured moments.  The editing is clean.OVERALL:  Great combo video/photo deal for a City Hall wedding.  I'd highly recommend this team if you plan on getting married in SF City Hall and want a memorable package at a price that I would say is reasonable.

Alex is exceptional.  After lots and lots of research, we chose Alex and IQ Video for our wedding weekend and we always knew we made the right choice.  He is such a talented and thoughtful professional, with an amazing eye, super high-end equipment and unmatched video editing skills.This is what came to mind when I received our wedding movie. "Yeah and wow!!!  You so wonderfully capture the joy, sentiment, beauty and movement of the day.  I have laughed loudly, teared up with joy and said "awww" multiple times and I am also seeing some things now for the first time.  Your work has taken my breath away.  We also love the music and incorporation of the toasts from our family and friends.  You clearly choose each piece and edit with such deliberateness and thoughtfulness.   What a gift you have given us!  Thank you, thank you...  I will love and cherish these videos and memories all of my life."In addition to his impression on me, my wedding venue is interested in booking him for their own professional events so I would say he made a strong impression on many people.  So extremely glad we found and booked Alex.

Alex and his team are really what wedding videography should be all about. They are fun and easy to work with, and Alex is one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet! We initially found Alex for my sisters wedding, and he was so great, we decided to use him for our wedding as well. :)*When you are looking for a Wedding Videographer It is so hard to tell what the quality of their work is, but Alex's website is clear, and his blog gives you great footage so you can really see what he is capable of:iqvideography.com/blogHere are the products we bought and 5 reasons we are giving him 5 stars:Love Story Video & Full Wedding Video Package1. Quality:Everything Alex produces is amazing and outstanding quality. He really captures the emotion of the event, and his ability to mix sound is really unmatched by anyone in his field.2. Creativity:When we shot our love story we weren't sure what to expect of how to put the content together. We had some general ideas, but Alex helped us put them together in a cohesive and fun way. He let us be ourselves, and we really trusted his judgement, and were rewarded for doing so, because his ideas were great, and the final product is so fun, and really captures our silly personalities.iqvideography.com/blog/2…3. How he is to work with:We spent 2 pretty full days working with Alex on our love story, and he was so great the entire time. He kept it positive, and fun, and got shots that were beautiful. He was even better on our wedding day if that is possible! He really made me feel at ease, and you barely noticed he was there, but still managed to get amazing shots. This is the true sign of an experienced expert in his field. 4. The customer is always right mentality:I really appreciate that Alex will make sure the product is what you want. He does not have an ego, and if there is something you don't like (which trust me will be a rare occurence) he will do everything in his power to make sure his customers are happy. Every customer is different, and he does a great job working with many different personalities, which just speaks to his great personal demeanor.5. Timing to receive final product:With our love story the turn around time was less than a month. We got married in August, and in September received our five minute preview. We still have not received our final wedding video, but I am sure we will this month, and I am so excited for the product.*** I trust and love all of Alex's work, and am so happy we chose him as our videographer. Our family is using him for a third time for my other sister getting married. Trust me you want a quality product IQ videography is the company to work with! More...

We used IQ photo for our engagement photoshoot and our wedding day. For what my husband and I invested in the packages, we got back 5 times in return with the quality of the work. They go above and beyond with what they provide you. You get stunning photos and a warm and genuine staff. Photos are precious and I think you have to put a lot of trust into who you select to capture those moments, you won't be disappointed with this company.From day 1, Masha coordinated everything for us seamlessly and I like how easy it is to secure payment via paypal. I specifically searched for photographers that specialized in weddings at Cityhall. SF Cityhall is stunning and it takes the right kind of photographer to have an understanding of lighting and positioning. In both experiences, Alex was our photographer. He is completely professional and I appreciate him being punctual. He called me 15 minutes before and was there on time. We struggled on this day because it was so hot and it was hard for my husband and I to get comfortable. Can you get anyone to take photos of you? Yes you can, but what Alex was able to do was capture us in our natural element. Nothing was too posey or staged.....we could just be ourselves.Our wedding was on September 16 and we are blown away by what Alex was able to capture; candid moments with our friends and family, our rings, my bouquet. His attention to detail is perfect.They do everything! They created a magazine style wedding album layout for us and we are looking into this option. Gives me such peace of mind knowing I don't have to go to 3 different vendors to handle all my photography needs. We will be using them in the future! More...

From start to finish it was an excellent experience - having Alex film our wedding was the best choice we made and by far the best money spent! I spotted his work early on in our search. His talent is obvious. He knows how to line his shot for that ultra appealing angle, to fade out in the perfect catch of light and how to not just cut shots at the right moment but properly bridge the shots to the story. He got everything, he was everywhere, funny thing.. I didn't see him. Seriously, the mans a cinematic ninja!Having a beautiful video I could share was really important to me. Alex edited the video in a way that captured my husbands first look at me, caught our personal quirkiness, highlighted special moments w/guests and all of the once in a lifetime moments throughout our ceremony. It's beautifully edited to one of my favorite songs EVER! I know he took extra time to make our video perfect. He genuinely gets to know and cares about his clients. That means so much! I really feel like (even though I paid for it) Alex gave us the best wedding gift.Thank you again, Alex!! #amazballs More...

Alex and his team did absolutely fantastic job on our wedding videos. He is a great listener, knows what you want and what's important and plan carefully from day one. He is very approachable person and respond very quick. The video quality is amazing and music selection was fantastic also. We found out IQ Videography from a random youtube video which happened to be one of his works in San Francisco a few years ago. We knew instantly that's the quality we want on our wedding video. The tone, the music and the story line was just perfect. I highly recommend Alex and his team to be your choice! More...

Today, nearly two years after our wedding, I was reminiscing and was so glad I had the videos to watch! Alex and his team did our wedding in Sonoma, CA almost two years ago, and it was perfection. They were professional from the get-go and worked well with me from afar for my "destination wedding," as we live in Southern California. They arrived on time, and with the exact crew he told us would be there. I tell everyone I know how much I love our video, especially when they question if it is worthwhile to get a video. It is sooooo worth it. Pictures can't caption words and certain emotions like videos can. Also, some of the pictures I wish my photographer had didn't turn out and had to be thrown out. So at least my video has everything. When I played the trailer for my friends, they said it looked like a Hollywood movie trailer. So glad I found them, and that they were able to travel to Sonoma. Just perfect. Memories that will never die! More...

Alex and his team do amazing work. We were absolutely blown away with the quality, editing, and moments captured in our wedding video. Our wedding day went by so fast but the video has allowed us to be transported back in time and feel the love and happiness we share with each other and our guests that day over and over again. It is so special to actually see the speeches, dancing, and vows which can't quite be captured in photos. We are incredibly thankful to Alex and his team and would gladly hire them again! More...

It is with such genuine gratitude and support that my husband and I are submitting this review. IQ's video of our wedding preserved the look, feel and heart of that day more beautifully and authentically than we could have ever imagined. Alex and his team were professional from the get, responding to any email inquiry within 24hrs, often times less. On our wedding day, IQ's crew was so discreet, careful to document our day but not disrupt it, that it's even more unimaginable how they got some of the intimate footage they captured! It is incredible that a team we met with only a few times was able to capture our day exactly how we remember it, but with a cinematic expertise that makes you feel like you were watching the best love story you could ever see in theatres. I only wish our review could do as much justice to Alex and IQ as their team did for our wedding day. More...

Worth every penny.We found this company while getting ready for our wedding and though we knew that a video was something we wanted. We weren't sure if it was worth the money. No words can explain how glad we are that we did it. Photos capture a moment this video captured the raw emotion of the day. We find ourselves watching it over a hundred times and remembering our especial day.With everything that's going on the day goes by so quickly that the video was a perfect surprise when it was all said and done. We can't thank Alex enough for tailoring the video to who we really are. Thank you guys for everything. More...

I can't say enough about Alex.  We hired him to make a pre-wedding video about our love story (same-sex wedding) that we wanted to show before we walked down the aisle.  We came to him with an idea and a song and he made a movie out of it.  As a perfectionist, I was a very demanding client, and Alex demonstrated such incredible patience, and in the end, produced a video that was hands-down, the highlight of our wedding (people still talk about it).  I highly recommend him.  You will not be disappointed.

It's almost our 2nd yr anniversary and we were watching our wedding video when I realizedI have not acknowledged the man who was behind capturing our special day. Where do I even start? I stumbled onto one of IQ's videos online and instantly knew we had to have him film our wedding! His videos really capture the depths of the wedding and us a couple, from beginning to end. I cry every time I watch our videos (and even videos of others). Alex is honest and really good at his job. He gives us his expertise advice but at the same time let's us do it with our style. He is so good you don't even notice he is aound when he is filming. He is def worth every penny as you cannot put a price on special memories like this. We have recommended Alex to our friends!Thank you Alex for your wonderful work! We can now relive our magical day over and over! More...

My husband and I just received our highlights video from our Memorial Day Weekend wedding - and we are absolutely blown away. We had many comments after the day about how pleasant the video crew from IQ were, and how professional their equipment/techniques appeared, and so we were very pleased with their conduct from the outset. The result is beyond expectations - the editing is impeccable, the timing with the music so wonderful, and the finished product so impressive - we had several viewers comment that it looked like a Hollywood movie preview rather than a wedding video. Highly recommend! More...

It's taken us a while to write this awesome review because we struggled on how to articulate our deepest gratitude to Alex for giving us a priceless memento of our New Years Eve wedding day. His attention to detail in the editing of a very full day of events with multiple locations, was not only precise, but extremely creative as well!  His song selection & editing savvy really captured the boundless joy and happiness that we, and our guests experienced.  Each time we watch it we laugh, get teary-eyed and are left wanting more!    We highly recommend Alex.  He was easy going, flexible, responsive and stealthy (we hardly knew where he or his cameras were set up!)  To our pleasant surprise our video was turned around to us in just 2 weeks!  Thank you Alex! We can't wait to have our future children watch our video one day.  We are blessed and grateful to have worked with you!Sincerely, Mr and Mrs. Christopher DeGrande More...

This will be the best money that you spend for your wedding!! In the beginning we were so hesitant to spend another expense on a wedding videographer until we saw Alex's videos. But it is so worth it!!! Our wedding passed by so fast that day and watching our video brought back memories of that day. Alex was so awesome and great to work with. The video he created captured the best moments of the day and you can definitely tell that each video that he creates is unique vs other wedding videos that have the same format. We love love the video he made for us!!! More...

Alex and his team are amazing! I knew we wanted a videographer, but I can honestly say this was the best investment and I'm so happy we worked with IQ Videography.  I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Alex. He is so patient and easygoing. But most importantly, we were absolutely blown away with how beautiful and special our wedding video turned out. The quality of the video is remarkable and like a hollywood movie, made especially for us. He captured every special moment and pieced everything together perfectly. One other note - they were so discreet and I hardly noticed they were there filming. Alex and IQ epitomize professionalism and class. We will treasure this video forever. Thank you, Alex!! More...

Alex is an amazing and incredibly talented videographer. Brides...if you are reading this, it is the absolute best investment you can make on your wedding! ! Also, Alex is really great to work with. He is professional, kind and very easy to work with. My husband and I are still in awe of how great our video turned out. It was so beautifully filmed and captured US, our love and our day so perfectly. Worth every penny. More...

Alex is amazing as a videographer! Well, for the quality of his work, I really don't have to say more since there are a ton of talks about that. You can also check all his works online to see if it fits you. But what I also want to mention is that Alex is so GREAT to work with. He's super patient and really listen to you. After he edited the video, there are a few things I want to change. Alex exchanged emails and talked to me on the phone and made the final video exactly what I wanted. We are very happy that we choose Alex as our videographer to record one of the most important day in our lives. We'd like to recommend him to anyone we know, or don't know. More...

Wow! IQ Videography is amazing.  My husband and I used them for our wedding last year, and I have been SO happy about the results.  First of all, the videographer at the wedding was so inconspicuous that my mom asked me later if they had come! Then, when we got back the video it was just beautiful.  The videographer was very talented and the editing was great.  There were a couple adjustments I asked for (including a different frame of the guests, etc) and Alex was very very easy to communicate with, and made the edits beautifully.  Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend IQ Videography!!

When I was trying to decide which videographer to use, I watched a few from other companies which were so formulaic that you could watch 3 videos for 3 distinct couples and they all felt exactly the same. Their personalities never shined through the pre-packaged nature of the video. None of them felt special. On the other hand, I watched Alex's videos and each one was crafted specifically for the couple and really celebrated their personalities. They're beautifully filmed, expertly edited, the song choices are perfect, he's just a magician and he's wonderful to work with. My own wedding video has become the single most treasured expense of all of our wedding costs and I really cannot over-exaggerate the value of it- it is so worth it and so beloved by my hub and I, as well as and our families. This is our highlights video which you can see for yourselves is really wonderfully done. I've done your research for you. Hire him. You wont regret it. vimeo.com/44253039 More...

How can you not choose IQ Videography? Just watch any of their videos on their website. That's exactly what my husband and I did and immediately loved everything about their videos. Very cool and super artsy! It's funny because my cousin Marlyn B. (who also wrote a review on yelp) showed me her wedding video when she first got married and I absolutely adored it! Over time I forgot to write down their company name, it just so happened that I used yelp and I found IQ on here and seen her review. I contacted Alex right away because I didn't want to miss out on getting IQ to shoot our wedding video. I sent Alex an email and he responded very quickly, we set an appointment to meet on our first email. Our meeting went great, we met with Alex at his residence and spoke about the details of our wedding. Our personalities clicked right away and we were very comfortable with him, so we signed the contract the same night. About three weeks before the wedding we were constantly emailing with Alex as well as him being in contact with our wedding planner. He was definitely easy to get a hold of considering how busy he is. The day of the wedding Alex and his assistant Sonny showed up and started shooting us getting ready. It's like they were not even there, they were on stealth mode, not getting in the way or asking us to do a whole bunch of poses. It was great! The whole day Alex and Sonny were there with us for everything but only gave us little directions here and there, which was nice because my husband and I wanted to live in the moment, not create "scenes" for our video. The directions they would give us were not intrusive to our feelings and allowed us to have our moments. Both of them worked very well with our two photographers that we hired, they were respectful of each others shots and style. Alex really does have the stealth mode thing down solid because when looking at our photographers pictures not once did we notice that they were in one of their shots! Bonus for us because our shots with our photographers were not wasted. Shortly after the wedding within a week or so we received our highlight video. We love it!!! Alex completely captured the whole feeling of our wedding...FUN!!!! We shared our highlight video with the rest of our family and they couldn't believe how professional the video looked! Everyone kept asking us,"Where can we buy tickets for the full featured film?!?" Everyone had such positive things to say about the highlight video. We have not yet received our whole video because my husband and I super lagged. We only gave Alex our choice of songs three weeks ago and our wedding was in May!!! We look forward to seeing it! We can't wait!!I highly recommend IQ Videography! We were not sure about spending a good portion of our budget on photography and videography but now know that the cost is absolutely worth every penny! Videos can capture so much more than just pictures alone! I am grateful that we have audio also included in our video because even though you try so hard to remember everything from your wedding day, it's just impossible to do so. More...

We absolutely cannot say enough about Alex' talent, sense of professionalism, and easygoing manner.  After viewing the sample videos on his blog, we immediately fell in love with his work and knew he was our guy.  Throughout the first meeting, the wedding day, and the editing process following the wedding, he was responsive, non-intrusive (most of our guests didn't know he was there), and a pleasure to work with.  He recently sent us our Highlights video and we absolutely LOVE it!!!  The quality is amazing and he captured all the special moments perfectly.  Although he claims we gave him a beautiful backdrop to work with (so humble he is!), it really came down to his incredible videography skills, editing, and artistic style.  We have been hearing the best feedback from every single friend and family member (no exaggeration) who has viewed it, from "it is by far the most beautiful wedding video I have ever seen," to "this is amazing--I've already watched it 3 times!"  Like others, we briefly debated whether or not to have a videographer, but it is one of the best wedding investments we made.  Photos are one thing, but to truly capture the moments, the words, and the scenes in action is priceless.  And Alex is really the best in the business.  We're seriously trying to come up with other occasions to hire him!  Don't think twice--book him how.  You won't regret it.

I highly recommend IQ Videography! First, Alex is incredibly talented. My husband and I did an extensive search online and looked at dozens of websites as we were selecting a videographer, and Alex was by far the best. We absolutely love our wedding video and are so happy to have such high-quality documentation of this important time in our lives. Our family and friends think the video is awesome and always comment on how he captured our personalities so well. Alex's videos have style and sophistication, but they are also fun and engaging. In addition, Alex is a great guy and we enjoyed working with him.Before we found Alex, we had considered skipping wedding videography. Now we are SO GLAD we didn't! Hiring him was one of the best decisions we made in our planning and we're thrilled to have our video to watch in the coming years. More...

My husband (then fiancee) found Alex on-line since we were having a destination wedding in San Fran on 10/10/10. After watching ALL of Alex's wedding highlight videos (probably multiple views) on his blog he came to the conclusion that Alex was a master of his craft and was determined to have him shoot our wedding video. My husband was absolutely correct -that is twice now ;-) Alex did an amazing job and we cry every time we watch the video (don't tell my husband I told you that). We highly recommend Alex and his brother, Joseph! Joseph does excellent photography (go to IQPhoto) and get  wowed by his work. These two really know what they're doing!!! :-) More...

We got married at the City Hall last month and now all we have left are the beautiful photos and video by the brothers Alex and Joseph (IQ Videography and IQ Photo). We had a great time with them. They were very easy to work with. My husband and I were comfortable posing with them. Our families have nothing but praises for them too. They directed us well. Friends and family continue to rave about our photos and videos because they truly captured the wedding beautifully. We had an intimate ceremony of 20 ppl, immediate family only and yet by showing our photos and videos to our friends back in the Philippines, it was like they were able to experience the moment with us too! A lot of friends have told me that they cried while watching the videos. Oh, and we are from Ohio so we only communicated with them thru email and we had NO issues whatsoever. We planned to meet at a certain time and there they were! :) They listened to all our requests and I just can't imagine anyone else capturing our wedding day that way. If you are still having trouble choosing between IQphoto/videography vs X company, feel free to message me and I will gladly convince you to book them ASAP. :) More...

We got married in 2009 and hired both Alex and his brother Joseph (from IQ Photography) with wonderful results.Alex is prompt, professional, funny in a quiet sort of way (a contrast with his older brother) and a wonderful artist.  While the highlight video was a bit different from what my husband and I expected, we loved it.Only "feedback" is that we had requested that the save the date video that Alex had done for us be included in our wedding DVD but it wasn't (reason for minus 1 *).   But we are still able to view it on his website :)Also, the guests at our wedding loved Alex and his gear...it almost felt like a combination of James Bond and a Ninja at work.

28 January 2011

Okay, so this is the scoop... You are getting married, you want to remember it forever, right?  Well, hiring a plain old photographer/videographer just won't do will it? You want the memories to be sweet, not dull, reminiscent of a good time, and one your family, kids, loved ones will look back and say, "wow"!!  Because this is what you want for your wedding, you will have to... I repeat HAVE TO, hire Alex for your video.I shit you not...We got married December 6th 2010, we hired Alex and his brother (IQ Photography), and they are amazing!!! But lets talk about Alex since this is his review, shall we?  Alex is an amazing artist, the things he does with the camera, and his ability to truly be there at that right, perfect, exact moment, is wonderfully amazing!!  Alex is in the room, and you have no idea he is there!!Seriously, if you are reading this, don't question your judgement, just hire him, the video is amazing, he gets it to you quick, and you could not have hired a nicer guy!! (Hire his brother Joseph to do your still photos as well... and Alex if you are reading this, thank you sooo much for everything!!)So to sum it up, Hire Alex, you will not regret it, then hire his brother Joseph, also something you won't regret. Go to their websites, look at the cool videos, and be ready to have everyone you know say, "Uhhh we wish we hired them!!" (after they see the results...)Go, do it... More...

We waiting on our video still, so I'll update this when the actual product comes.I booked Alex fairly late in the game, and I'm so glad I found him! He is very prompt, responsive, professional, nice, and fun to be around! I was pleasantly surprised by how great his packages were, and how much they cost!Alex and his crew are a lot of fun to be around, and I enjoyed having them around during all the girly wedding prep! During the actual ceremony, they disappeared into the background and were SO ninja, I totally forgot they were there!He was pretty quick in giving us the preview video, which was just a few minutes of video highlights from the big day, which our vows and some music as the audio. Needless to say, the little video made me (and a lot of other people) cry.Alex is very good at what he does, and I can't wait to see our video! More...

I am being sincerely honest when I say, I cannot thank Alex (IQ Videography) enough!  Not only did he capture the magic of our wedding day so stunningly with his video, but he was a huge helping hand throughout it all. It was a genuine pleasure to have him and his brother, Joseph (IQ Photo), with us on such a special day. The video he created is truly the most precious gift. There is no doubt that the accolades he and Joseph receive are exceedingly well deserved.  Every time I watch the video I will not only rejoice in the happiness and love of the day, but I will feel extremely fortunate for having found him.  The video he created is such a special tribute to our wedding and one of our most cherished possessions. I will always be thankful for his hard work, artistry and kindness. More...

I found Alex Kon of IQ Videography through his brother's IQ Photography, which we had booked first. Alex's films are amazing - everyone who sees them says they're like a MOVIE. He makes you the star of your own film which captures an extremely poignant moment in your life. I wish that we had the time to do 8mm because I love the old school feel, but we'd wanted our ceremony film edited in time to play at our reception the next day and couldn't wait for film processing time. It was no great loss at all to commit to HD, as Alex's HD work is so polished that it really represents the true gleam of your sparkling day. Maybe someday your kids won't be able to imagine your youth without a vintage haze (if they can even imagine what THAT looks like), but when you show the film to them, they'll realize that you were just as real as they are today. Someday you'll be 70, 80, (140 ), old and crinkly, and you'll boot up your film and be brought right back to that day, the way you felt squeezing your beloved's hands, each kiss and hug, run and jump, the tears and the funny oddball moments. The way the sky looked that day, the way people you love supported you and laughed with you, the way the crisp San Francisco air bit at you but it didn't matter because you just got married and you were just so overwhelmed with joy. Alex will encapsulate that for you, so that you can find it again when you need to. More...

Of course my review is a little late, but I wanted to say that Alex is by far the best in the business!A true artist and professional who goes over and beyond to make sure the night is captured just perfectly!

Alex's video skills are the best of the best!  He will film you in various settings and will ask you to do things you might be a little nervous about (such as jumping up and down in a public place), but trust him completely.  The final product is amazing!  His video captured the love my wife and I share in a fun and entertaining way.  Do not consider using anyone else.  Alex does an amazing job!

Alex is wonderful! My now husband and I had Alex and Joseph at our city hall wedding and Alex did our video. It was shot in 8MM which was really awesome. Alex does a really great job pairing the video to music and he worked with us to find the perfect song. It was a bit rushed to get our video done for a reception with our family in Seattle, but sure enough he delivered! He was able to get us the evening before and we were able to share it with our family who absolutelly loved it!Alex also went above and beyond and got us all the raw footage he had shot- it great to have these memories of our special day and Alex captured it so perfectly!

It's been almost a year since our wedding and I realized I never wrote a review for our dear talented Alex Kon! We chose a package that included a "Save the Date" vid session, then a highlights and full version vid from the wedding day.  Now my husband and I aren't too much into PDA, I  mean we LOVE each other truly, yes, but it's just not in our nature to "cupcake" like crazy in public. With Alex's videos, especially it being for our wedding and all, we def had to come out of our shell to show more love.  It was TOTALLY awkward at times, but Alex made it look SO natural and easy in the final works.  He was able to also catch our goofiness and at the same time make it super special with the way he put it all together. Alex is GREAT in editing the videos! He is truly talented and comes up with the coolest effects and ideas for his vids... I LOVE HIS WORK! He also tries to stay updated with equipment and whatnot.  For the quality and all he has to offer, I would say the price is right! I would highly recommend IQ Videography!! More...

I had no plans at all to hire a videographer for my city hall wedding because i thought it was useless and a waste of my money  but good thing I stumbled upon IQ videography. Alex changed my whole perception of city hall weddings. I instantly fell in love with his videos. I had asked him to do a super 8 mm film for my video and he did an amazing job you would never think that is was only one person filming the video.Now because of the beautiful video he did for me and my husband all of my friends want to get married in s.f city hall...... So if you think it's useless to hire a videographer for your city hall wedding because you think its a waste of your money and because you think the ceremony is only 10 mins i would reconsider and hire the IQ team  it's a decision your going to be very happy about.  Now I can't wait for my church wedding so I have an excuse to hire alex again =) More...

Outside of being arguably the BEST wedding videographer in the bay area, Alex is uber-talented, trustworthy (so there, Benjamin T. ), reliable, proactive, artistic, flexible, supportive, generous, and continually went beyond the call of duty for my wife and I.  We loved his work and loved working with him.  Probably one of the best decisions we made during wedding planning.  But before I go into how fun it was to work with him, check out the highlight videos he made for us (yes, self promotion, but these were ridick! and this doesn't include the 20-30 min "movie" he made for our wedding):wedding highlights: iqvideography.com/pasade…save the date vid: vimeo.com/4660692allright, if you're still not convinced, a few things:1. During our Save the Date / engagement shoot, Alex hung out with us for another 3 HOURS because he wanted to get nighttime shots on our roof - he didnt have to do this, but was committed to getting the necessary shots to create something we'd love2. He's super responsive and humble, serious when he works, non-descript during the big day, and treats you like you're his only client.  Alex is very motivated to make his clients happy, and involved us as much or as little as we wanted. This manifests itself in the quality of the videos he made and the quality of service he provides. We were surprised of the shots he got because we didnt notice him or his cameras at all during our wedding.3. Before we met Alex, we were hesitant about hiring a videographer.  It was a "nice to have".  But after working with Alex, we can't believe this wasn't one of our top priorities.  Just having a video documentation of everything, artistically crafted, brings you back to the day. 4. His brother Josef (iqphoto.com) was our photographer, and they worked superbly together. We recommended him to a couple of our friends, and they've also bought into the IQVideography train.  Anyhow, if you're on the fence about videography, at least have a meeting with Alex and decide after seeing his work.  Can't say enough about him and his team.

If we could give 10 stars, we would in a heartbeat. My husband and I just got married on Saturday and Alex and Alex were our videographers. We don't know what more we could ask for from such an important vendor. Videography was super important to us, and Alex delivered, above and beyond our expectations. Not only did he call the day of and ask if he could come earlier, I think he stayed a little after our time with him was up! Him and his team are unobtrusive, professional, fun, and comfortable to work with. His experience shooting weddings ensured that we would get all our shots and memories of our special day. Don't hesitate to book Alex and his team... you will have absolutely no regrets. Oh, and to combat the wedding withdrawal you're sure to experience following the wedding, Alex's turnaround is FAST! We got our highlights video within one week! I wouldn't hurry him though... good editing and good quality videos do take some time. :) Thanks, Alex, for being a huge part of our DREAM TEAM of vendors!! More...

To be quite honest, I almost opted not to hire a videographer since I had always thought wedding videos were boring, unimpressive and something you just tucked away in storage after your wedding day. This all changed when I came across IQ Videography. I was blown away after seeing samples of Alex's work and shared them with my fiance who was just was impressed. We were thrilled when we learned was available and haven't been disappointed since. The following sums up why I highly recommend IQ Videography: - Very Responsive and Good Customer Service. Anytime I contacted Alex, he always responded within a 24hrs or less (most often within a few hours). He listens and makes a genuine effort to accommodate what's important to you and how you want to capture on your wedding day. - Creative Talent. I did my due diligence in researching for videographers and he's one of the best in the Bay Area. His cinematic style, creative vision, video effects, transitions, timing, editing and overall talent are qualities I absolutely appreciate. - Professional. Alex arrived early, was prepared, transitioned from one destination to another without any interruption in the schedule (we had multiple destinations throughout the day), and was entirely focused on shooting footage that captured the essence of our day. - Pricing. Considering we had two videographers covering an exceptionally long day, level of professionalism and customer service, and the stunning, cinematic wedding movie we received, I felt we got a great deal. There are various packages to choose from (depends on length of coverage, number of videographers, content included etc.) which can work with most budgets. I am so glad I hired IQ Videography to capture my wedding day. My husband and I are so happy with our wedding movie and it's definitely something we'll enjoy watching over and over again with our friends and family for years to come. More...

My wife and I were very excited when we first booked iQvideography. Alex has shot so many weddings in the Bay Area and during our appointment, we saw his samples and were blown away! He is so artistic and every video was uniquely designed and produced in their own special way. His work varies from love stories to engagement to wedding day videos and more... I am happy to confirm that we recently got our wedding video and he did an amazing job of capturing all the special moments of our wedding day! Our video was so touching and there were scenes in the movie that we don't remember posing for, but they came out so natural! He has put in special effects that made certain scenes stand out, e.g. wine scene in the barrel room of Kunde Winery. In addition to his creativity of special effects and capturing special scenes, he does an amazing job of keeping the pace of the move flowing. Most importantly, Alex is very easy to work with and he made us feel comfortable the entire time. One word of recommendation; don't try to cut corners on your wedding day and hire him for just the ceremony. We loved how he incorporated our preparation time in the beginning of the movie and the reception party, so at a minimum, I suggest you hire him from the wedding prep through the end of the reception. And if budget allows, throw in the love story and the wedding highlight! We are super excited to have this amazing movie to share with family and friends! Thank you very much Alex! More...

WOW.WOW.WOW. We were blown away by the love story video and can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for our wedding highlights and full length videos. I'm so glad that I happened to stumble across your name on one of the many wedding blogs. You have a talent that no words can describe and Nick and I think you should just move to Hollywood already. The lighting, the sound, the editing were perfect and we love that it was all in HD! The fact that you were able to capture our true personalities on film was remarkable.  There were some guests that had not met me or Nick until that day and that video, we were told, made them see how Nick and I were perfect for each other. Alex has such a soft and caring nature and I am glad for this. When we were selecting vendors for our wedding, our first goal was to select people based on our chemistry with them. Obviously in this economy price was a big factor also, but I was so happy that Alex was able work with us on that as well. Alex is truly delightful to work with and a master at what he does. We are so pleased by the work he has done for us so far, we can't wait to have another big event to hire him for. However, I don't think he'll be comfortable filming in a delivery room :)You can be sure I will definitely give Alex another 5 star review once I get our actual full length video. I can't wait!

We just got our wedding video!!! We originally wanted to pick what parts of the raw footage we wanted in the final video, but got too lazy to watch all of it. So, we completely relied on Alex to create the best representation of our wedding. We got a copy and watched it with our parents. Everyone loved it, but as usual with parents, they wanted a few things changed. Alex happily and quickly made those changes for us, and we received the final copy a couple of days ago. After watching the final video, I can honestly say that we made the best choice when we chose Alex as our videographer. We enjoyed working with him, and had one less worry before, during and, after the wedding.We, now, have a great record of the happiest day of our lives, to enjoy for the rest of our lives.Thanks.Lina and MishaPS: Our love story was amazing, as funny and romantic as we imagined it and as we asked him to make it.

After a long search, we have selected Alex to do our Love Story.  We would have chosen him for our wedding, but he was, unfortunately, unavailable. One word about his work - WOW!  Both my wife (now) and I, along with ALL the guests were impressed by the video.  It took us 1.5 days, but it was all worth it.People still call us and tell us that our Love Story video is one of the highlights of our wedding.  It is unbelievably amazing!  Some other comments from our guests were "the best love story I've ever seen", "I could not stop watching it", "it was super".  Even our wedding photographer said that at times it was difficult for her to take pictures of the guests watching the video, because she wanted to watch it.In summary, Alex is a very dedicated and talented videographer.  I would definitely recommend him!

We've hired Alex to do our videos, and let me tell you guys that he is excellent! I didn't know how much I loved my wife until Alex took a shot of me gazing longingly at my wife, wondering when the party was going to end so I could take her home and tell her that her beautiful, expensive wedding dress looks better on my bedroom floor. I know this is not supposed to be a review of other reviews on this page, but I couldn't help but notice "Benjamin T's" so-called review of IQ Videography. I love how he says: "Nice videos, but Alex cannot be trusted." Hey Ben, how do you know he can't be trusted when you haven't actually hired him to do your videos? Your review is not even a review, it's just a boring story about the sequence of events leading up to you not deciding to hire Alex. Do me a favor, why don't you leave the review page to people who have actually "paid" for the services being reviewed? And what in the world makes you think that not putting down at least a down payment for something guarantees you service? It's called running a business, think about it........ More...

Just a few weeks before our wedding reception, we decided to "tell" the story of how met to all of our guests.  We found Alex after a quick Google Search, so we really didn't know what to expect.  I sent him an email, and he responded immediately.  To give us an idea of his work, he sent us real videos of his past customers.  We immediately fell in love with his work.  We wanted the video to be a reflection of our own story, but we really didn't know where to begin.  Alex did a great job of not only filming us, but also directing us and asking us the right questions.  The video flowed naturally.  We filmed outdoors, so he also made an effort to pause when there was disruptive background noise and re-film, and even let me know when my hair was being blown out of place :)  Besides the love story, we also incorporated our civil ceremony -- which Alex did seamlessly.  Even the background music he added is perfectly blended into the video.  You'll be very happy with the final, edited version.  He miraculously worked within our very short time window and had the finished video (in three different formats!) for us in time for the wedding reception.  We received so many compliments, and also have a special keepsake that we will watch over and over, and hopefully share with our children one day.  Thank you, Alex!

While it is fresh in my mind as our wedding ceremony was just last month, I wanted to write a review for Alex from IQVideography who was our videographer. What was most amazing about him is how he worked. I have often found video cameras to be a large ominous presence in any gathering but at our ceremony and during our time at city hall, it was as if he was invisible! he moves like a gazelle and i was amazed at the footage he got of our friends and family and of us--but most of all he was able to capture the fine details: i was so moved by how he put together the video and his composition style. He has the true eye of an artist! His shots were magnificent. I think a videographer is a great addition to a wedding photographer (and he and his brother Joseph make the best team( because in 2 to 3 minutes the feeling of the day is all captured. i think it is a great combination to have! And recommend Alex to anyone thinking of getting married. More...

We were thrilled with the exceptional work of videographer Alex Kon (IQ videography) in capturing our wedding recently.  Alex was responsive, prompt, and professional throughout the entire process.  While being relatively unobtrusive, he managed to capture comprehensive footage of excellent quality.  His creativity really comes through--in the perspectives of scenes that he captures, the compelling (but thoughtfully restrained) effects used in filming, and his artful editing.  We provided Alex with several music files for inspiration, and he was able to assemble  brilliant and really exceptional video stories.  For the amazing quality and creativity provided, Alex's services are quite reasonably priced.  We couldn't be happier with the videography services provided for our wedding by Alex Kon/IQ videography!

We were married in September, and Alex blew us away with his "highlights video" he sent to us.  We have received numerous compliments from our friends.  The one word they all say is WOW!  The color, the editing, the cinema quality, the background music - we felt as though we were stars in a movie.  That's essentially how talented Alex is with his fine editing.  We never realized how beautiful videography can be.  Alex is exceptionally professional and captured so many beautiful moments.  He and his assistant were unobtrusive, and most of the time we didn't even know they were there.  Alex delivered superb quality of service.  We were so excited to receive our amazing highlights video.  We are looking forward to his final videography of our wedding.  We have no doubt it will be amazing!

I hired IQ Videography to film our wedding. Alex did a fantastic job of personalizing the video to our personalities and balancing out the shots so it wasn't entirely too long (which nobody, not even the bride would sit through) but still captured the moments we wanted to remember. We were able to select the music for the background which made it even more personal. Professional and obviously a master at the art of videography, I would recommend IQ to any bride or anybody who wanted to capture a special occasion on film. More...

Alex and IQ Videography is great! We had Alex film our wedding in Napa and recently he sent us his completed project - our Wedding DVD. The DVD came in a really nice jewel case that had a really nice cover. Watching the DVD really made all the memories come flooding back. Alex was easy to work with and he and his equipment just blended into the background - he was out of the way as much as possible. The DVD montage really captures all the best parts of the whole day and we'll have this to keep forever. Alex is quick to respond and a very reasonable person to work with. More...
