“We were completely satisfied and impressed as well as grateful to have been able to work with
David Ethridge and his team.
Right from the start we looked at online videos and were drawn to the elegance, attention to detail,
and comfortable transitions that AVR films displayed.
We were then blown away by the genuine person that David is, the high quality of equipment that he uses,
and his own personal integrity and passion for his work.
Before our wedding day, he took the time to get to know us and understand the kind of wedding ceremony
and reception we were planning.
He arrived early at our site to make sure he could capture footage of the winery and did some really
creative shots like a time lapse of the sun setting and stars/moon coming out.
Throughout the day the entire AVR films team (3 videographers) were never obtrusive and worked
seamlessly with our other vendors.
A week later we had planned an East Coast reception and David was able to put together a video of our
vows that we could show to our guests.
He went above and beyond by staying up all night to make the necessary edits.
It was about a month before our wedding that we found out a co-worker had also worked with AVR films for her sister’s wedding and highly recommended them for their flawless work and calming presence.
We felt confident that we were in good hands and our experience has confirmed this and exceeded our expectations in every way.
Thank you David for capturing the beauty of our special day, you have our highest recommendation.”

“Hi Dave, We want to let you know how much we appreciate the wonderful job you did with the slide show. Everyone really enjoyed it and we received several comments about how fun it was.
The parents and grandparents were all very touched and shed a few tears.
We watched it yesterday and smiled all the way through it.
The way you put everything together: photos, the Father of the Bride clips, the music, and the picture on the front of the disc was done perfectly.
We are so excited to see the wedding video when it is complete.
I’m sure we ill be sending another thank you for that as well
You and your son were very tactful with your filming and people hardly noticed where you were.
I did laugh at one point though when I saw a light over the dance floor and looked up to see you guys hanging off the side of ladders with cameras stretched out over the dancing guests.
You were like ninjas in your black outfits with your stealthy camera moves!”
Many thanks, Chris & Kate
Just wanted to take a moment to again express my thanks for all that you did 2 weeks ago for my wedding.
I cannot tell you how many compliments that Ruben and i continue to receive! You are the master at your craft, and I feel so blessed that I was fortunate to have your professionalism and expertise at big wedding event.
David was referred to me by my wedding coordinator.
From the start, I could tell that David was an incredible referral.
Just speaking to him on the phone, you can tell that he really, really knows his stuff. And seeing what he put together at my wedding, well the final production just proves that he is an incredible videographer with an unbelievable sense for capturing moments.
I really wanted to show a (SDE) same-day-edit video at my reception.
However, my ceremony and reception were separated by a short, hour long cocktail hour.
Most of the videographers I spoke to said that a same-day-edit was impossible, given that I wasn’t giving them enough time to edit in between the ceremony and the reception.
However, David never said such things.
He had to work very hard I’m sure, but he ended up showing a timeless, impressive, and very emotional same day edit at the reception that most videographers couldn’t put together even if they had days to do so.
From the minute that David arrived in the morning, until the end of the reception, he was always working with precision and focus.
He really gets engaged into each event that he shoots, and whenever I felt like there was something that I wished was being filmed, I turned around and David was right there, filming away.
Finally, David exhibited a lot of flexibility and genuine care during my wedding time. For example, I told him that the groom was actually getting ready off site at another hotel.
I told him this hours before the event, yet David had no trouble with adjusting his schedule so that he could get some film footage at the hotel as well.
Also, he originally was going to leave about 30 minutes before the end of the reception, per my initial request.
However on the day of the wedding, I ended up asking him to stay until the very end to capture a very special sparkler exit.
His reaction to my request was “Cool!
Absolutely and thanks for telling me so I can get that footage!”
He was very agreeable, and really showed a lot of genuine care to make sure that I got exactly the video that I wanted.
I was so, so happy to have David on my wedding team.
Such a professional, yet so easy to talk to and get along with!”
“Hi David! We LOVEDDDDDDDDDDD it!!!! We were all crying like crazy and then laughing.
You did such an awesome job capturing the feeling of our day and we really appreciate your attention to detail.
“Hey Kristin! (Special letter to Clos LaChance Winery Manager)
Thanks again for everything that you did to make our wedding in September so special!
I just wanted to share my experience in working with David Ethridge because I think he is a major part in making your wedding day one to remember.
We received our video just before the holidays so we were able to enjoy it with our friends and family.
David took the time to find special effects to make our video the best it could be.
The time and dedication that he put into the video shined through when we watched it and all burst into tears.
My husband never cries and he had to leave the room.
You feel like you are watching a movie about the perfect fairy tale and then you remember that it is yours.
David captured moments that we never even knew happened, but meant so much to us.
David knew who we wanted to be an critical part of the video and they were all featured in it perfectly. (my dog is quite a star now)
Not only did he make a wonderful way for us to remember our perfect day, but he was a joy to work with.
I have referred him to many of my friends and will continue to refer him in the future.
I thought that you would like to know this because I know that you refer only the best and I feel David is a true artist.”

Wow – the video was INCREDIBLE!!!!
Bryan and I watched it last night and it was so fun to relive everything!
We had the best time!
We kept saying how happy we were to have such an amazing video.
You captured every perfect moment!!
Every detail was just incredible!
WE LOVED IT!
Thank you for making it so special.
There were so many parts of the day that were kind of a blur and you were right there capturing all of it – wow!!
I can’t wait to show my parents this weekend!
They are going to be thrilled with it!
It is fabulous!
We will definitely watch it over and over again!
I will let you know what little things we want to tweak.
I can’t thank you enough for making such a wonderful video!
Talk to you soon.”

“The first thing we have to say is, don’t make the same mistake we did and assume that your photographer will be able to capture all of the memorable moments at your wedding.
That was our assumption going in.
We hadn’t planned on hiring a videographer until we considered one key question: “Which component of our wedding would last the longest?” Clearly, pictures and video were the answers.
What pushed us over the edge and led us to Dave Ethridge, was when we realized that pictures alone would not be able to capture the funny moments, the toasts, the slip-ups, or our wedding party walking down the aisle.
Most importantly, the photographer wouldn’t be able to capture us exchanging our vows on film.
After watching the video for the first time, we were immediately transported back to the happiest day of our lives, and both of us were brought to tears.
Getting to select the music that was most meaningful to us, and using it as a backdrop to Dave’s unparalleled talent as a videographer, well, it was the best decision we made while planning our wedding.
At our wedding, you hardly even knew that Dave and his son Brian (also an incredible talent in his own right) were even there.
They were totally unobtrusive, and yet they managed to position themselves so that they captured every detail, every moment, and edited it together to tell a story that we will never forget.
When we did see them, they were always so warm, personable, and attentive to our every need.
Dave and Brian are consummate professionals and talented artists, and based on their reputation and our experience, truly the best in the business!”
“Dave!! We absolutely loved the video – it was beyond amazing and surpassed everything we could have ever hoped for.
I can’t even describe how much it meant to us that you and Brian created such a wonderful and thoughtful memory of our day!
You really are the best at what you do – and honestly if there is anything Matt and I can ever do from you (give recommendations to clients, call people, etc.), please, please let us know!
THANK YOU AGAIN, and please thank Brian too!”

“Dave and his crew are amazing!
They work hard to capture every moment and do such a beautiful job which allows brides/grooms to remember the smallest details of their big day.
Like all brides I ran around all day and often missed special moments, we are so grateful to have our wedding video to look back on for years to come.
Dave and his team are thoughtful, professional and very easy to work with…we went the entire wedding and hardly noticed they were present!!!
It is evident that Dave LOVES what he does and the end product reflects his passion.
I loved the visual effects used in my video…no two segments were the same which made it that much more interesting.
Our video brought me to tears, I really love the Bridal section showing myself get ready!!!
He also did a sunset segment that took my breath away!!!
In short I would recommend A Video Reflection to any bride looking for an amazing videographer!!!”

Thank you so much for our incredible wedding video.
It really brought us back to such an special time in our lives and we will cherish it forever.
You are so artistic and creative and we are so pleased to have such a fabulous video.
It was more than a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working together again at future events.
Greetings from Down Under.
You were really fantastic through out the entire wedding day.
You helped to show off all the events in the highlight video and yet, you and your crew never interfered while filming our magical day.
We would recommend him to anyone.
