Amy was even there for the wedding rehearsal! She was so much fun to be around and worked out all the details with the photographer & both together can capture the priceless moments. We can not wait to see the final production. She and her assistant were so professional. She kept us up to date on the shooting events and schedule and even asked if we wanted other things included that came up. That is why she can be counted on. You could see how much pride she has in her work and wants only the best video ever and nothing less! More...

My husband and I went back and forth throughout wedding planning on if we wanted to hire a videographer or not. Neither of us likes to be in front of the camera, so we were worried we'd look super awkward on video. About 2 months before our wedding, we decided we needed to hire a videographer and by some miracle found Amy (via WeddingWire) and she was available! From our first meeting, we immediately felt comfortable with Amy and knew she'd be great to work with for our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Amy was ahead of schedule, able to offer a helping hand, and absolutely amazing at blending in!
One of my favorite parts of working with Amy is that we got our highlight video less than 2 weeks after our big day... and it is AMAZING! Amy made us feel super comfortable (so we don't look awkward like we were worried about) and was so easy to work with. The video is the absolute perfect way to relive our wedding day while waiting for the professional photos to be delivered and I'm sure we'll continue watching it even after the photos are here :)

From our first meeting I knew I liked Amy right away. She is personable, flexible, willing to add input, but also amazing at blending into the background. She is SO affordable, I actually don't know how she keeps her prices so low when she is SO talented. My photographers and her hadn't met before the wedding, but they worked together seamlessly. Her attention to detail is spot on and she was always ready to jump in to make the day as smooth as possible. If you are looking for great communication, a great product, and just a great person to work with I highly recommend Amy! More...

I would 10000% recommend Amy with Kismet Video Productions! She is super easy to get a hold of and work with all together. She’s a super nice person with a huge personality & made sure that our experience together was perfect. Amy is really such a talented and creative videographer. I was hesitant to even booking a videographer just because I didn’t know if it was worth the money, but every penny spent on this video service was worth it. She captured every part of our big day that we missed with being busy all day. If you are hesitant and looking around for a videographer, I would 100% recommend you book with Amy. She is honestly the best, no one else compares. Thank you Amy for everything!!! More...

Amy was great to work with! We decided quite a bit later than booking our other vendors that we wanted a videographer and I was worried about finding someone good so much later. Amy was super responsive and flexible in talking through what we wanted and she was great at the wedding. There was some specific stuff we wanted video of and she was great at communicating when there wasn't time. However, she ended up finding time later in the night and was great at telling us what might be the best use of her time and the most valuable footage to us. Outside of those moments, I barely noticed she was there as she was busy doing her work unobtrusively. She is super fast with her work and we got our highlight video less than two weeks later. I LOVE the highlight video. I have watched it 100 times already. It is beautiful and captured our day so well. We also recently got our full video and it was exactly what we wanted. Amy is great to work with and a great value for the price. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a videographer, especially someone looking for good quality but has a limited budget.

We were so pleased that we chose Kismet Video Productions for our videographer for our wedding. Amy is genuinely a nice person, and it was apparent from the first meeting that she cares deeply about her profession. She was prompt and attentive during our wedding ceremony and reception...but, perhaps the best part was, we received a text from her about 10 days after our wedding telling us that the proof of our video was complete! She sent it promptly, and it was so exciting to be able to re-live our wedding ceremony and reception so soon after the actual day. She offers revisions to the wedding video, but we loved our so much and it was perfect just the way it was!

We were on the fence about getting a videographer for our wedding, but numerous friends of ours said the one regret they had about their wedding was not having a video of their special day. We are so happy that this is something we have to remember one of the best days of our life! It is so special to be able to watch a live version of the day, and there are a lot of things we got to re-live or even see for the first time. Yo u will not regret hiring Amy (Kismet Video Productions) for your wedding!

We loved Kismet Video Prouctions! Our wedding was last month and we are beyond happy with our highlight video and feature film video. I can’t believe I ever thought twice about hiring a videographer... it’s definitely worth it! Amy responds via email/text/call very quickly and she truly wants to do an amazing job. I personally was so impressed how much she cared about her work. Not only did she create two awesome videos for us, but she also had our highlight video to share on social media ready ASAP—I think it was 10 days after our wedding! I would highly recommend Amy and Kismet Video Productions. Thank you for doing an amazing job :) More...

If there was a 10 star rating to review their work, I’d post that! She captured the most raw, heartfelt moments. As well as, all our real and what represents us. I will forever be thankful to her. I cry and laugh every single time we watch it! Thank you for everything! If you pick Kismet, I promise you won’t be disappointed! More...

We used Amy from Kismet Video Productions for our wedding this past August. We decided only two months before the wedding that we wanted a videographer and were lucky to book with Amy since she had a cancellation. From our initial inquiries, she was very prompt to respond via email and text message. After our first meeting, it was clear Amy was experienced and understood all of the nuances that come with shooting a wedding! She offered to come to our rehearsal, and provided valuable feedback and tips for getting through the ceremony smoothly. On the day of the wedding she arrived early and was able to set up her equipment unobtrusively in the back of the venue, while still being able to capture every moment of the ceremony. Amy stayed for the entirety of reception capturing all of the dancing to the very last song, and even captured footage of our bowling cocktail hour, which she normally doesn’t film. Post event, her production timing was very fast. We had a proof of the video within seven days and the final cut within two weeks. The quality of the video was excellent and we couldn’t be happier with the way the video turned out! More...

I met Amy at a bridal expo and hadn't even put any thought into having a videographer. After watching her videos online and comparing to other vendors I was thoroughly impressed with her work! Booking her as our videographer was the single best decision I made as a bride-to-be and our wedding video turned out absolutely amazing! Our entire family loves reliving the tears and laughs from our special day. I would HIGHLY recommend Amy to any couple. She was very easy to work with and most of our guests (our bridal party included!) said they didn't even realize we had a videographer there... She wasn't in anyone's faces but somehow still captured every important second of our wedding and reception! More...

Look no further! HIGHLY recommend booking with Kismet Video! Amy is the BEST! From prewedding planning to rehearsal to the big day to afterwards, she is with you every step of the way. She is very organized with providing all the information she needs for the big day and made great recommendations. What makes her truly stand out, she traveled all the way to your rehearsal. We were floored she did this for us. This showed us she cared for us as a couple and was ready to capture the day. She made the big day so much fun and is very enthusiastic! Her professionalism and friendliness were outstanding. Amy has a very quick turn around with her videos. She is very accommodating, very caring and compassionate with her work. You feel like you’ve known her your whole life. She is someone you want on your team for your wedding day. Amy goes above and beyond for her clients and her work was outstanding. She truly captured the love of our day and her videos feel as though you’re reliving the day. I will without a doubt recommend Kismet Video to every bride! More...

From our first meeting Amy made me feel very secure in her ability to handle our wedding! Felt like she was family and she did an incredible job with our video. I had my highlight video back before I returned from my honeymoon! Amy's focus was on making everyone comfortable with the camera and we all felt like she was family. Thank you for everything Amy More...

Kismet Video Production did a wonderful day capturing all the key moments of my wedding. I was very hesitant about whether I was going to have a videographer during my wedding, and I am very happy that I did! Amy did a fantastic job. I especially love all of the dance footage and interviews that she did during the reception. Also, the highlights video turned out perfect! Amy was very professional, responsive, and reasonably priced. She also finished my video very fast! I would recommend Kismet Video Productions to anyone. More...

I booked Amy almost a year before my wedding date. A few months later my husband to be lost his job and our budget went way down. I had to call Amy and cancel. Well as life goes we got back on our feet and I immediately called Amy to see if she was still available. She had to work 2 nights in a row but she did it for me. We were so thankful for her hard work and understanding. She was professional, personable, and passionate about putting together the best video for us. I highly recommend Kismet! More...

I found out about KVP through a friend who hired them for her wedding. I was floored by the quality of the professional video she had done! I thought it would be wonderful to have something like this for my family reunion instead of just pictures of everyone together. I contacted KVP for a consultation, and felt very at ease from the start. I worked with Amy who was very professional and had a lot of great ideas for how to uniquely capture my family's event. When we got the DVD, I could not stop smiling. It's a priceless part of our memories. We hope to have them back for the next one. More...

We just watched our video and it's AMAZING!!! At first, we were skeptical of purchasing a video AND photos, but we both feel that you captured our day in such a perfect way. Watching it, just now, was truly like re-living our wedding and now we have a copy that will last forever. We couldn't be happier with your hard work and attention to detail and we are so very happy and grateful that you were such an integral part of our special day! GREAT JOB!!! You are AWESOME!!!

Hire her now!! Amy was the BEST (and least expensive!) vendor in our wedding. We didn’t have much left in our budget but really wanted a videographer – luckily Amy’s rates are incredibly reasonable! We knew we were going to hire her before we even met with her, and the fact that she is lovely in person was a bonus. Before the wedding she was so responsive to emails and answered all the questions we had, and she even came to the rehearsal to make sure she’d be set up in the best spots. Amy also did an amazing job of getting footage without being intrusive at all.

When we received the proof of our video, my husband and I were both initially nervous to watch it. Not that we didn’t think Amy did a fantastic job, but the wedding was so perfect in our minds that we didn’t want to see anything that disproved that. No one wants to see themselves look stupid dancing! But when we watched it, we spent the next hour and a half with huge smiles on our faces. She did such an incredible job that our memory of the wedding actually got even better after watching the video!

We got the final copies just days after we approved the proof and were just in awe of how professionally the video was done! She was even able to add a few iphone video clips we took during the night as “bonus features.” When we got our photos back my husband said, “Thank goodness we got the video or I would be really disappointed right now!” Our pictures turned out great, but with them alone we wouldn’t remember the little bits and pieces that Amy captured which made our wedding day so memorable.

Amy was a joy to work with, and thanks to her we have a fantastic video of our wedding. A lot of couples don’t think they need a videographer, but so much happens during the day and pictures just aren’t enough. If you’re on a budget, cut something out so you can hire her because you will regret not having this day documented! Thank you SO much Amy! You blew us away and we couldn’t be more grateful!!!

Amy is one of a kind. I spent hours and days searching for the best videographer for my wedding. I wanted to have the same feeling I felt when I watched my parents wedding video. I found myself continuously watching Amy's demos on her website! I fell in love ! I made my now husband watch every single demo. There was absolutely no convincing needed. We just had to meet her!
Amy is wonderful. She has such energy and passion. She knew exactly what I wanted!!! She's professional and fun! She attended the rehearsal to make sure she knew her camera positions. She met everyone in our wedding and called them by their names;extremely personable.
The way she captured my wedding was truly incredible. I'm getting choked up just thinking of how much I love my wedding video!When I watch it I am so thankful I went with Amy! It's like I get to relive my wedding over and over! And guess what that feeling I would get when watching my parents video well this feeling is ten times greater!!
If you're looking to capture your wedding or special occasion Amy is your girl! Thank you Amy for everything ! I hope you're still doing this when my little girl gets married! ;)

There's no possible way I can say enough about Amy in a review! We would have been lost without her to say the very least! Look no further for your choice of videographer; because she is way more than that! She basically coordinated our rehearsal & thank goodness because our officiant was sort of clueless...Amy is very professional yet so personable! And, she is more than punctual (she was extremely early every time we met with her & for the day of our wedding). She is SO awesome to work with and was very flexible/understanding with everything we envisioned for our video. And, if you're worried about quality you can put your doubts aside. Our video exceeded our expectations beyond anything we ever could've imagined! We are forever grateful to have had the pleasure of having her as our videographer! Definitely our favorite vendor after all was said and done! Would recommend her to everyone and anyone having a wedding or any other type of event requiring video! Just love her! More...

I've been in the Wedding industry for 25+ years (DJ's & Photo booths) and have worked with hundreds of Videographers and I can say without a doubt Amy is one of the BEST!

Amy was recommended to us by friends who used her for their wedding in 2013. From our first meeting I knew Amy was going to do a phenomenal job. She was attentive, energetic, and you could tell how truly passionate she is about her work. From our countless emails and phone calls leading up to the wedding she handled each as if it was her only wedding going on! My rehearsal would have been a complete cluster if she hadn't stepped in and handled the bridal party and I had completely forgot she would even be there! She was at my house bright and early on our wedding day and was at our beckon call until the end of the night. She was by far the best vendor we chose and to think we almost didn't even get a videographer! She proceeded all my expectations and got all my footage and montages back to my in record time. During that process she was just as attentive and asked our opinions through all the editing. I have watched our montages and full video multiple times since we received it and have loved sharing it all with friends and family on Facebook. So THANK YOU AMY for helping make our Wedding Day truly amazing. More...

We were looking for someone that could be with us the entire day while at the same time was creative yet affordable. She was our first choice when I searched for wedding videographers. She offers a variety of packages to choose from. We went with her highest tier which is the platinum package and we still found it affordable because there was so much she includes for the price. Prior to our wedding, she frequently communicated with us. She is fast to respond to answer any questions we had for her. We did not ask her to come to our wedding rehearsal but she was there to see our wedding and reception venue and met the bridal party. She shoots video with 4k format so we knew it was going to be a high quality video. During the wedding day, she was on time to every location. Even though I didn’t have all my bridesmaids with me to get ready I felt at ease because Amy was so friendly and uplifting. I felt pretty being filmed by her even before I got my makeup on. After receiving our wedding proof, we were blown away. The picture was sharp, the color was vibrant, and the audio was clear. She also does a nice job framing the shot so the focus is on what is going on. It was a joy to see the short video commentaries & well-wishes of our loved ones. My absolute favorite part to see was our wedding montage. If you chose a package that doesn’t include this, please add this feature on. . My family and friends were amazed and asked who filmed it and people kept complimenting on how nicely it was done. They were even more pleased that one person shot and edited it. I am so happy that we have something to remind us of our wedding day. Photos are a great remembrance but there is something about capturing the sounds of laughter, seeing the tears, and watching the reaction of our family and friends that makes it more worthwhile.

Amy was the most amazing person to work with from start to finish!! I received her info from a bridal expo and after comparing some prices, she offered the most bang for my buck! I contacted her, and we bonded immediately! She did some INCREDIBLE things for me for my video that I seriously cannot thank her enough for. Without going into too much detail (mostly because ill become a sobbing mess), amy came a few weeks before my wedding and recorded my dad giving my husband and i well wishes. My dad was very sick and slowly losing his ability to talk and by the time our wedding came around i wasnt sure hed be able to talk anymore. But becuase amy was so amazing, i have those wonderful memeories on my wedding video. She did an amazing job capturing everything, even things i wouldn't have thought about! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone!! More...

We met Amy at a wedding expo at the Rialto in Joliet, IL and her friendly, bubbly personality made an impact immediately.

Amy is very professional, and passionate about what she does which made her so easy to work with. She was easy to get ahold of during the planning process, and we received our video when promised. Very pleased with her services, and if we have a need for a videographer in the future, Amy is our girl! More...

Not only was she on her feet and working hard the whole time for the bride and groom to catch every angle and detail, but she was SO respectful to the guests as well as me and the fellow vendors of the day (which is rare to come by these days) and she even gave me some GREAT photo pose ideas!

Amy was wonderful to work with. Everything that I was wanting in my wedding video she captured.

Amy has been so wonderful to work with! She is simply the best!! She came to the rehearsal to make sure she knew how the ceremony was going to play out which was awesome! The whole day, she was amazing in making sure to capture every special moment!! There's so much that goes on, on the BIG day, that you don't remember everything that happens so it's great that we get to relive those moments over and over again. Amy was so good at making sure we were completely satisfied with the video and I loved it and said she could make any changes if nessesary! She even threw in an extra disc because the video took longer than expected which we really appreciated! We were so surprised on how the case and cover looked of the blu-rays! They look amazing!! And the highlight montage, we're obsessed with it!!!! Makes me cry every time! We wish we would of made it longer. Didn't want it to end!! We are so happy that we found Amy for our wedding! We wouldn't of wanted to hire anyone else!! Can't thank you enough Amy! :)

Amy has been absolutely amazing to work with during our wedding planning journey. She has been fantastic prior to, during and after the wedding. She is so organized and truly has a passion for her job. She came to our rehearsal and was always on top of her game. The video she produced for us is something we will forever cherish. We cried and laughed until we cried again. It truly made us feel like we were front row at our own wedding, which is exactly what we were looking for. We are so blessed and thankful. Search no more people you have found your wedding videographer.

We were looking for someone that could be with us the entire day while at the same time was creative yet affordable. She was our first choice when I searched for wedding videographers. She offers a variety of packages to choose from. We went with her highest tier which is the platinum package and we still found it affordable because there was so much she includes for the price. Prior to our wedding, she frequently communicated with us. She is fast to respond to answer any questions we had for her. We did not ask her to come to our wedding rehearsal but she was there to see our wedding and reception venue and met the bridal party. She shoots video with 4k format so we knew it was going to be a high quality video. During the wedding day, she was on time to every location. Even though I didn’t have all my bridesmaids with me to get ready I felt at ease because Amy was so friendly and uplifting. I felt pretty being filmed by her even before I got my makeup on. After receiving our wedding proof, we were blown away. The picture was sharp, the color was vibrant, and the audio was clear. She also does a nice job framing the shot so the focus is on what is going on. It was a joy to see the short video commentaries & well-wishes of our loved ones. My absolute favorite part to see was our wedding montage. If you chose a package that doesn’t include this, please add this feature on. . My family and friends were amazed and asked who filmed it and people kept complimenting on how nicely it was done. They were even more pleased that one person shot and edited it. I am so happy that we have something to remind us of our wedding day. Photos are a great remembrance but there is something about capturing the sounds of laughter, seeing the tears, and watching the reaction of our family and friends that makes it more worthwhile.

Here is the link of our wedding montage. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Amy was absolutely amazing, hire her! She was very nice to work with and made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire day. The final product that we received from her was amazing! She gave us two copies of our final video. The final video had chapters for each part of the raw footage and the highlights montage. The packaging of the video was also amazing, she made it look like a real movie cover with photos from the wedding on the cover and on the actual disc itself. I would recommend her to anyone, we were extremely pleased! More...

She did my wedding last year at the Greenhouse loft. Absolutely spectacular. super friendly, actually listened to what my wife had to say(she was being a bridezilla) and offered solutions to anything that came up. Had a Friday wedding, and she was totally okay with that as well. The way she put our wedding together, told our story and I got to see my wife cry again just like the day she said I do... Took only about a month for her to get the videos to us, so that was pretty cool too. I'm having my brother use her when he gets married next year. Pricing was great, she did offer a package with a photographer, but we already had hired one. Highly recommended! More...

I first met Amy it was at the Rialto Square theatre wedding expo. I got her information and she was very friendly and outgoing. I met with her a few months later to discuss using her as my videographer.
She was was very informative, offered great insight and advice. I immediately connected with her. She seemed to mesh wonderfully with my personality and her professionalism made everything feel like the perfect fit. She came to my wedding rehearsal and was beyond helpful. She helped the wedding party know what to do and put them at great ease. Then came the big day and she was just wonderful. Everybody loved her, thought she was so nice and was a joy to be around. She never made us feel like she was just sticking a camera in our face. She captured the moments and made us feel very comfortable. A few weeks after the wedding we got our proof and it was AMAZING! We were very pleased at how everything looked and how it was put together just perfectly. I gave her the go ahead and she produced our final copies a few weeks after that. It was just what I had hoped my wedding video would be and then some. The video looked very high quality and she captured all our important moments throughout our special day. The dvd cover and credits looked awesome too. Amy just does an amazing job and she is very easy to work with. She is very passionate about her job and is very good at what she does. Lastly she is just a really sweet, down to earth, and wonderful person. That shines through into her work. Look no further you have found the best so book her now!!
Thank you, Amy!! Jason and I are very very very pleased!!

Amy Royer is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! I cannot say enough wonderful and amazing things about this girl! She was one of the best parts about my wedding day. She is completely reasonable with her pricing and when she says she is with you all day, she literally means ALL DAY. She started with my bridal party at 8:00 a.m. at the salon and went all the way until almost midnight at my reception. She is the sweetest girl in the world and I am sooooo happy that I chose her to be my videographer. She even helped me with things that weren't even her job! She helped carry my veil and dress around, got water for the groom at the reception, all kinds of things. She does it all! From the first moment that you meet her you are just at ease with her and can tell that she truly loves what she does. I cannot wait to see my wedding video...I just know it will be amazing! If I ever need a videographer again, I wouldn't think about hiring anyone else but her! More...

I can't even begin to tell you how much we absolutely LOVED Amy! She is 100% awesome! I received a recommendation from my photographer to see her about the videography, and I can tell you that I was blown away the first time I met her! My parents and I sat down with her to chat about options and packages and we ended up talking for almost 2 hours! She is so sweet and I love that she wants to know the couple personally while still keeping a professional demeanor! We purchased the Silver package with her and she kept in touch all the way up to the wedding with updates or asking questions. I invited my vendors to the rehearsal so they could see what we were doing. Amy showed up and asked several questions so she could get the video just right! Even our pastor was amazed at the fact that she came in and was there, wanting to know the info. The next day, she came in and shot the video from us arriving at the church to the end of the night at the reception. It could not have gone any better (we had ZERO hiccups at our wedding) and she caught the best moments and now we have them for a lifetime to remember. I was absolutely blown away by the editing that she did and how she put together the video. She gave us a "proof" to review to see if we wanted any changes whatsoever (there were maybe 2?) and I had the final copies only two days later! It seemed like our wedding day was a blur, but now I can go back and watch every moment and cherish the day that was absolutely perfect. Thank you, Amy, for all that you did for us! We love our video! More...

We knew we wanted to book a videographer for our wedding, so we just asked around for recommendations. Everyone we talked to said to use Amy with Kismet Video Productions. We are so thrilled that we did! She was very prompt with answering any questions we had and offered much advice. Our first meeting with her lasted hours! She came to our rehearsal and was able to make such a beautiful ceremony video because she was aware of where and when everything was happening during the ceremony. She stayed with us the entire day of our wedding and the video has everything that we asked for. We are very impressed and recommend her to anyone! More...

Let me just start off by saying that Amy is AMAZING!! She was recently our videographer at our wedding! She has such an amazing personality, making her so easy to work with!

I had originally met her at a bridal expo at the Rialto in January of this year. After much debate if we wanted a videographer or not due to budgeting, I decided to give Amy a call. I left her a message and she promptly returned my call. We set up a meeting time and things only went up from there! She was early - (being late is the biggest turn off for me) so that was my first clue that she was going to be great! We got to talking about our wedding and what we wanted. My dad is currently suffering my ALS and Amy immediately responded by doing whatever she could to make sure that we were able to fit her into our budget. She offers a ton of great add ons to her videos including adding your engagement video (if you are lucky enough to have captured it), photo montages, guest interviews, highlight montages, the list goes on and on!!

One of the things that Amy did for me that REALLY sticks out, is being that my dad is sick he has a very hard time talking and it needs to be almost silent in order to hear him. well if youve ever been to a wedding you know that isnt going to happen. So she offered to come to my parents house a few weeks before the wedding to interview my dad for our video. I cant even thank her enough for doing that for us, without that interview our video would not have been complete.

We recently received the proof of our wedding video and it was incredible. She captured practically every moment of the night! (even of me falling on my butt!)

I would absolutely recommend Amy as your wedding videograpgher =)

Kismet Video Productions is the best choice for your wedding! We knew from the moment we met Amy that we would not have to worry about getting a great video.

Amy truly cares about her clients and it shows in the end result. We are in awe every time we watch it...truly perfection! More...

I love that I can experience all of our emotions again by watching the whole ceremony and reception or just get the little butterflies by watching the highlights during the highlight montage! I can't thank Amy enough for capturing our day SO perfectly! Our video is a keepsake and memory that will last a lifetime! More...

Amy did an on-line promotional videotape for my new company. Amy showed up on time, was prompt and efficient in set up. We did several walk throughs before the live taping. She ensured we had a good taping by running through each segment three times in taping. We compared them and selected the best of each. She then took my still pictures and created an animated slide show with them, varying the animation to best show off each image. She also took the background music and over laid it, timed to each of the three segments to fit properly.

The feedback I have received from the 180+ artists who are involved in the company's first book was "She did an amazing job, top notch, a real professional feel and look, very dynamic." I would highly recommend her work and I will be using her talents again.

Amy @ Kismet was great to work with. She was open to our needs without the sales person persona. She met our needs and listened to what our budget was. She created the video for my daughter's Cotillion and it was great!! She was very detailed and wanted to always make sure she was informed on capturing the important moments of this special day. The video was GREAT and services were professional.
I definitely recommend Kismet Video for your important event!

Without a doubt, Kismet Video Productions (Amy Royer) is the definition of professional. She consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and remained committed and dedicated the entire time! Her positive attitude and enthusiasm make the whole experience a lot of fun!!

Words truly cannot express how happy I am with my decision to hire Amy Royer as the videographer for our wedding! We were not going to have a videographer at all because we thought it would be too expensive. However, Amy completely proved us wrong! She genuinely cares about others and wants brides and grooms to be able to have something to show their friends, family and possibly future children later in life! Another plus about hiring Amy is that she is very, very flexible! In fact, we hired her about two weeks before our wedding and she was able and willing to help us even at the last minute, smiling the entire time! Her value is UNBEATABLE!!!

Not only are her services EXTREMELY affordable, but the quality is AMAZING!!! The video of our wedding, one of the most important days in our lives, truly exceeded all of my expectations!!! Even more notably, Amy is the most polite, professional and responsive person I have ever had the pleasure of working with!! Amy wanted everything to be perfect for our special day! She came to the rehearsal early; she was actually the first one there! Then, she stayed late to ensure that she knew exactly where to stand during the ceremony in order to get the best angles and capture every moment! She takes valuable time out of her day to make sure that everything is exactly how the bride and groom want it to be!! Amy is very responsive!! She asked the right questions and she accommodated all of our reasonable requests! Amy made this a stress-free experience for us!!

Amy is really on top of her game! To make sure that we could hear everything clearly, she placed a microphone on the groom. Then, just in case she missed anything, she used a back-up camera! However, she didn't end up needing it because she missed NOTHING! We received the DVDs only one month after our wedding!!! It was really fast!!

As you can tell, I have had a WONDERFUL experience working with Amy Royer of Kismet Video Productions! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for videography services! You will not be disappointed!!!!

Amy was a great videographer and she produced a high quality video. We went with the basic package with a few add ons and we couldn't be happier.

After calling at least 15 videographers I had to go with Kismet. Not only were they the most reasonably priced for their services but they were also very responsive and flexible to our needs. Our class was the first group that they had worked on for a graduation/pinning ceremony instead of a wedding. Kismet did such a beautiful job with the videography. They provided this service for our Nursing Class Pinning Ceremony on May 12, 2012. Amy, the videographer was very easy to get along with. She came to both rehearsal and the pinning ceremony on time and was very professional on handling all transactions. Kismet makes sure your opinions are heard. They really involve the client in preparing the final product such as choosing the DVD covers and all other details of the video itself. The video was very clear and of high quality. I was very happy with the end result and so did the rest of my class. It will be something our class will treasure and enjoy to view over and over in the future.
So, whether you need someone for a wedding, graduation, or any event, I recommend that Kismet wiill sure give you what you expect, a beautiful video with great quality that your wallet can afford.

Thank you!

I could not have found a better videographer in Amy Royer. Her work is outstanding and ranks in the top videographers in the Chicagoland area. She offers many packages and her prices are well below what one would expect for the exceptional quality. She had truly wonderful ideas for our reception and her vision was perfect for what we were looking for. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure her work was exactly what we envisioned. Her efforts to ensure we were satisfied with the final product were top of the line. Amy is a very caring person and she helped us feel like we were one of her friends and that our reception was just as important as if it were her own.

Amy was also a tremendous help at the reception. She quietly stood by and made sure she got all the shots we discussed but amazingly assisted with directing the timeline of events from the beginning through the end of the night. She somehow knew when something or someone was needed and made sure the night went according to our plan.

I really don’t know what I would have done without Amy. Her caring demeanor, bubbly personality and her passion for making sure our wedding video was everything we hoped it would be went above and beyond what anyone would expect. I personally cannot thank her enough for making our day one we will always cherish with the memories she made come to life in her wedding video and photo montages.

Amy was an AMAZING videographer!!! I couldn't of found a better person to record my wedding! When i was planning my wedding I looked everywhere for videographers and they were all SO high in price,then I came across kismet video productions!! I went on the web site looked at the prices and it was unbelieveable I had to call and speak with Amy herself!!! They had SO much to offer for cheap!! Then you begin to think why are they so cheap and others are ridiculously expensive maybe the work is different?!? So Amy sent me some demos of other weddings she has done and it was AMAZING! I hired her right then!! She took so much time on meeting with me plenty of times before my actual wedding that the day of the wedding I felt like she was just one of my friends!!! Most people you don't know you feel uncomfortable in front of especially filming, not Amy she is fun and is so outgoing!! Kismet Video Productions definitly deserved a 5 star rating! I would recommend them for anything! More...

Amy did a great job filming a private party for our family. My mother was celebrating her 70th birthday and we had family from all over the state in town for the event.

Amy caught everything and did it very inconspicuously. In addition, she set up extra interviews and shots to help make the final video so much better.

The end product was truly excellent, combining everything from the night and making it something that my mom calls "her second wedding".

My mom constantly watches the DVD, which was delivered to us very quickly, and it will be something that we have in our family for a long time.

No one should hesitate to hire Kismet for their event, big or small.

Amy was our videographer this past October for our wedding at Starved Rock. She did an amazing job. She has a wonderful personality so it is very easy to be yourself around her while she is shooting. Amy is professional, caring, prompt, and hardworking. She came early and stayed later than agreed to, for our wedding, which was amazing because she was truly able to capture the day in its entirety. Our video was finished earlier then expected and was done to perfection. It was better then we ever could have dreamed. Thanks to Amy we were able to re-live our wedding day and also see things that we missed or do not remember. I highly recommend Kismet Video Productions, Amy was truly exceptional. We will cherish this video forever, and would recommend her company and services to anyone.

We can tell you truly love what you do. Once again, thank you so much! More...
