  • Simon Cook is a supremely talented videographer. We are so pleased with our wedding video! He perfectly captured the essence of our wedding day, including a variety of footage that highlighted all of the truly special details that went into the planning process. We did have several edits once the initial video was produced and Simon was extremely patient and understanding throughout the process. He worked tirelessly to ensure that our video matched our vision and expectations and we could not be happier with the final result! Based on the location of our wedding, we had two videographers on-site that day, Jordan and Mina, and they absolutely blew us away with their professionalism and talent. Not only that but they were so fun and calming to work with! Simon gave us a great deal on our video package as well, taking into consideration what we wanted to spend, at the same time ensuring that we had all the services in place to capture an amazing video that we can cherish for years to come...

  • Words alone cannot capture how amazed my husband and I are with Simon's work. From the onset, Simon was a delight to work with and was extremely accomodating to our requests and needs. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found and chosen to work with Simon, and highly recommend that all the DC metro area brides hire Simon to capture the true essence of your day. Our highlight video was spectacular, it truly speaks to Simon's incredible talent and ability to sense the personalities of the couple and the overall mood of the day. For Simon, filiming a wedding is not just to document the day's events, but to capture the love between the bride and groom, and highlight the joy that the couple's family and friends had in celebrating their union. Simon knows how to personalize the video and we could not be more pleased with our highlight video. Our friends and family loved our highlight film, and as one of our friends told us "I am crying so hard watching your wedding video, it i... Read more

  • Simply the best!! We couldn't have chosen a better videographer, and genuinely nice person, to capture our wedding day! Simon's eye for cinematography is impeccable - he captures all of the details in such a perfect way! Did I mention that he's easy going, has a reassuring attitude, and is a true professional who loves his craft?! If you're here, what are you still pondering? Call him, e-mail him, get on his calendar! Working with Simon Cook was one of the best wedding planning decisions I made, and I'm so thankful that I did! - NYE 2015 Bride

  • Simon is a true gem. We worked with him for our December 2015 wedding. We could have not picked a better videographer. We watched so many different highlight films by other videographers before we came across Simon’s work. We thought his work was incredible and wanted him to capture our wedding, Once we actually spoke to him, we booked him immediately. He is so talented, but also incredibly easy going and great to be around. He not only created an incredible highlight video of our wedding, but amazing overall footage of our day. He’s an awesome human being. You will not regret choosing his team.

  • All of the other 5-star reviews raving about Simon Cook Films are completely accurate and sound like I wrote them myself!!! So I'm going to share how my situation was a bit unique... With only an 8 month engagement, I was having trouble locking-in certain vendors. After searching a few wedding videographers and being told they were booked on my wedding date (or way too pricey, anyways), Simon enthusiastically responded saying he himself was booked for shooting the wedding on my date, BUT that he'd still be delighted in working with us and could send his "extra team of back-up filmers" to film the day-of, and that he would then be the one to cut and edit the footage for the final films. I was a bit hesitant at first, but agreed to this set-up because we had such a good conversation about it all and I trusted him (so don't be scared if this turns out to be your situation!). I got our highlight film back a few weeks ago and could not stop smiling/trembling with joy/crying happy tears the ... Read more

  • I chose Simon Cook Films after watching one of his wedding videos. I immediately fell in love! After booking him, he kept regular contact with me over the months before my wedding day. When my big day arrived I was a little late meeting him at the time we scheduled, but he was at the venue already getting footage and had already introduced himself to all of the staff. I've heard the hours leading up to the ceremony can get a little hectic for some brides, but thanks to Simon I was so calm and relaxed. He made both my bridal party and me feel so special that day! His second videographer, Jordyn, was just as amazing as he was. Those two definitely know what they are doing, I got my wedding highlight video back within six weeks and it is just SO amazing. All of my friends want him when they get married. He managed to capture every single detail and make it look perfect. I cannot begin to explain how much I recommend getting a videographer for the wedding day, and I recommend ten times tha... Read more

  • Having a videographer was just a "nice to have" for us, as we were working with a tight budget and did not want to cut back on photographer costs. I am so glad ended up with Simon!! He worked with us to meet our budgetary needs and provided AMAZING service. He was so fun to work with and is probably one of the nicest people I have ever met. The short video he produced was done so quickly and could not have been more perfect. He also provided us with DVDs that had personalized cases and an easy to navigate menu where we could watch the short video, the ceremony or any of the speeches. I highly highly recommend hiring him!

  • We had the most amazing time working with the team at Paperboys. From our very first interaction, they were responsive, flexible and so much fun. When the team arrived on our wedding day I immediately felt their positive energy and we knew that we were in good hands. They worked very well with our photographer and other vendors throughout the day. We were honestly sad when it was time for them to head out at the end of the night! The team kept in touch about their timeline for our video, and while I knew it was going to be good, the final product completely blew us away. They so perfectly captured our special day and we are forever grateful.

  • Right off the bat, I knew I wanted to work with Simon. He was as professional as he was friendly, something we found to be unique in the wedding planning industry. While corresponded like old friends from the beginning, I also always felt like I was working with a sophisticated businessman. Simon kept in touch throughout the wedding planning process, keeping us up to date on upcoming payment deadlines, walking us through the day-of needs, and answering any and all of our questions within a matter of hours. Again, on the day of the wedding, Simon was again among the friendliest and warmest of the vendors with whom we worked, while also being unobtrusive throughout the event. The filming was pretty seamless. Most importantly, we absolutely adore the end product. I had hesitated to get a wedding film because, to me, they can be awkward and dry and not great quality. Simon's film was anything but. We collaborated with him to pick a song choice, and he edited together truly stun... Read more

  • Simon. Is. The Best. He has such a calm, cheerful demeanor and was such a welcome presence on the day of our wedding - not only is his videography excellent, we really just enjoyed having him around! We've gotten our highlight reel back so far, and we are SO happy with it - he managed the perfect balance of capturing all of the key moments/emotions without ever being too intrusive on the day of. It's a beautifully composed video and definitely something we'll treasure for years to come. Simon is super responsive and works with you to figure out your preferences (e.g., if you have to choose, would you want the videographer or photographer to get the perfect shot, do you want him to bring extra lighting, etc.) to ensure that he tailors his approach to exactly what you want. He's also very reasonably priced given the high quality product he delivers. We HIGHLY recommend him. Even if you weren't thinking you need a videographer, definitely do it, and definitely go with Simon!

  • To put it simply, Simon just delivered a knockout of a video. Simon created one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen. I searched for a videographer for about two months prior to picking Simon and I can say now after seeing the final video that he is the best in the business. Period. The video came out even better than videos that come out of Hollywood. Quality is one thing and the other thing that matters most is the level of service that Simon provides. Simon has been the best and easiest vendor to work with among the many vendors we had at the wedding. Leading up to the wedding, he was responsive in every interaction. During the wedding, he was ready to shoot whenever we called on him on top of the regular shots he took. Our photographer wouldn't take extra shots when we asked her and didn't even want to stay an extra 1 minute to take shots when we asked her. However, Simon stuck around as long as we wanted him without giving us a hassle about it. Extremely easy to work wi... Read more

  • In the beginning, my fiance and I both were not planning on getting a videographer, since we thought it may not be worth it and we probably will never watch or want to watch our awkward selves on tv. But then I stumbled onto Simon’s videos—and just fell in love with his cinematic approach. Just like his website, he was really down-to-earth and extremely easy to work with. He listened to what our “must-haves” and what our wedding day would consist of, so he can make sure he will capture it all. On the day of, he was prompt, professional and even made us feel comfortable by just being funny. I think our photographers and him really work well together and on his questionnaire, he asked if there was one shot, who would you want to have capture it (him or photographer)—so you have choices. After our wedding day, my fiance and I both agreed that we made the right decision that we had Simon be part of our big day. There were reception parts that we missed (when we were taking pictu...

  • Coming from a super picky bride and groom, you cannot go wrong with Simon. To not contact this AMAZING man would be a mistake! It feels funny to write a review for someone who has not yet filmed our wedding (it's next weekend), but we will definitely be following up after the wedding, as well. Just in talking to Simon, you will be immediately put at ease that you've made possibly the best decision that you could have for your wedding day! So far, he has filmed our "interview" that will be in our wedding video, and working with him has been the most enjoyable part of wedding planning :) Not only is he super personable, but he's so talented-check out his videos-they're nothing short of breathtaking!

  • I could not have been happier with Simon's work! I searched for a long time to find a videographer in my price range, especially one who was not cheesy in their approach, but was coming up short. I finally found Simon, and immediately fell in love with his style! Simon and his wife documented everything without interfering with any of the events. In fact, my husband, upon reviewing the video, said he was shocked that he was able to get such cinematic shots without us even knowing! The video was so well put together and thought out, and really captured the lighthearted, fun nature of not only our own wedding, but of Simon and his wife. It was really a joy to work with them, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you for putting together such a special video highlight of our day!

  • Simon and his wife produced a documentary-length film of our wedding, with an accompanying preview teaser video. The video turned out perfectly. It felt intimate and encaptured the true spirit of our wedding day. They were both so professional, and didn't get in the way of any of our photos. It was so easy to talk to and communicate with him, and soon even the guests were loving it too. If you're thinking of even if a video is worth it... stop thinking and book Simon right now because his camera films moments you never even knew happened. Like a private moment we had before being announced as husband and wife... or some happy tears I shared with my grandfather remembering times gone by. There's a whole gamut of emotions going on, and you need someone like Simon to find them and stitch them together for you to remember for the rest of your years.
