  • For our wedding video, we weren’t looking for anything too edited or fancy. We just wanted the raw footage to remember the event. Thankfully, we found Vanilla Video, and they provided us exactly that for a pretty reasonable price! The videographer they sent over was very nice and professional, and he worked with our photographer to make sure all the important moments were captured. We just went through the raw footage (several hours-worth!), and it was both extremely watchable and worked as a great representation of the day! This was exactly what we were looking for! We would definitely recommend Vanilla Video to anyone looking for good, raw footage!

  • Corey was our videographer at our wedding at the Monona Terrace. He was nothing but wonderful to work with! My main worry was the videographer and photographer getting along and Corey's main focus was candids so he wasn't in the way of the photographer and they worked really well together! I would hire Vanilla Video again. We can't wait to get our video footage back!

  • We're so glad we decided to get a videographer for the wedding. A friend recommended Vanilla Video, and we're so glad they did! We had a tight budget, and Vanilla was able to work within this. Our videographer was very nice and jumped right in. We also liked that we could save money now by just getting raw footage, and that they will edit it for you down the road when you know more of what you want. Happy we book Vanilla video!

  • We were on the fence about hiring a videographer, simply due to the added cost, however I am SO happy we did! Vanilla Video's prices are very affordable and customizable to a package that works for what you are looking for. We decided to go with 6 hours of raw footage, which covered our pictures, ceremony, and reception. This is EXACTLY what we were looking for, and was such a rare option to find in Chicago. We wanted to be able to look back on the day and see all of the special moments, but didn't feel the need to take on the extra cost for an "highlight" video. Vanilla Video was able to capture all of the key moments, and more, for us to look back on for years to come! I could not imagine not having a videographer, and I would highly recommend Vanilla Video!

  • I was hesitant about hiring a videographer because I didn't want a camera in my face and distracting me on the wedding day. I ended up barely noticing their team, and the videos they produced (and delivered within a few weeks) were everything we hoped for. And their pricing can't be beat. We're so happy we hired them and have video of our wedding day to watch and enjoy for many years. Thank you for everything!

  • We were originally unsure if we needed a wedding videographer, but I am so happy we ended up securing one, and that we chose Vanilla Video. The week before our wedding, my husband and I decided we wanted to find a reasonably priced videographer. Vanilla Video was quick to respond and assign someone to our day. We chose the package that includes a 5 minute highlight reel of the day, and then edited raw footage of the rest of the day. Our videographer was so nice - most importantly, I didn't even notice she was there. She did a perfect job capturing the day without drawing too much attention. She even stayed a bit later to capture some dancing footage at the reception, since our schedule was off by a half hour or so. We were so thrilled when we watched the highlight reel - it was perfect for us, and for the price. Highly recommend!

  • Vanilla Video was the best price for a simple video of a wedding. Our videographer was amazing and created an amazing video unedited. He even stayed a little late to make sure that he got our bouquet toss. We are so happy to be able to see our entire wedding from the ceremony to the cocktail hour where our guests give us best wishes. We are so happy with the finished product and recommend Vanilla Video for the best value for something you will treasure forever.

  • We used Vanilla Video for our wedding in June 2018 and couldn't be happier with our decision! We went back and forth for months about getting a traditional videographer for our wedding and it wasn't until we found the Vanilla team that we finally felt like someone truly met our wants and needs. From the start of the process, they were super responsive, transparent about pricing and packages, and patient with all of our questions. Day of, they were professional and I honestly barely knew they were there (which is impressive). We received our edited video and raw footage shortly after the wedding and we are more than satisfied. They did an excellent job of capturing the day and all of our loved ones having a blast. Having the raw footage of our day documented was such a treat because you aren't relying on someone else to decide "what are the best parts of the day". Instead, we get to see it all and personalize it ourselves. We highly recommend this route of a wedding video and HIGHLY rec... Read more

  • I have not seen the video yet from our daughter's wedding this past weekend, but I am thoroughly impressed with our videographer, Tom. He was punctual, courteous, calm. He was discreetly 'everywhere' but never in the way. Let me tell you my favorite thing of all. Unbeknownst to me, he let my daughter know that he was about to leave - after the agreed upon TEN hours - unless there was anything else that she wished him to film. Then he asked me the same. I had just asked the DJ to play a special song requested by my son, for him and his sister (the bride) to dance to together. Tom happily filmed our last request, a moment I would have been sad to have not captured. Thank you, Tom, for thoughtfully checking in with both of us! Our video will be the best keepsake ever thanks to you!

  • I PROMISE you, going with these guys is the best decision you will make for your wedding, hands down. I decided on video at the LAST minute. I wasn't going to have it, I wanted to save money and didn't think I needed it, but under the pressure of the final days leading up to our wedding I was too afraid I'd regret it- so I researched local and affordable options and found the Vanilla team. They were incredibly responsive, friendly, assuring, and all around fantastic to work with. Their customer service was perfection and their product... what can I say? It was invaluable. Absolutely invaluable. Our wedding was such a blur and a bit overwhelming, so try as I did I couldn't really relax and see the big picture on the big day. The video they returned to me had me in tears- moments I'd forgotten or hadn't been around for were right there before my eyes-every detail captured in amazing quality. Brides, grooms, if you're looking for a videographer do yourself a favor and get one. I highly, h... Read more

  • Well, I had Vanilla Video come out to record my wedding ceremony. I loved being able to set up the hours based on what I needed, not based on packages that were not applicable to me. We had a very small ceremony, so I only needed about an hour of footage. That was fine. I set up my reservation, and Nick was there on time and recording before I arrived. I was so concerned because my wedding was very DIY and I had no wedding planner. I was also concerned about not being able to double check anything before getting started. However, after receiving my footage online (which was within 48 hours), I realized how great of a job Nick did. Vanilla Clips are super convenient for Youtube. I was so pleased overall, 100%!!

  • Hiring a videographer for our wedding was a last minute decision, as we didn't know if we had the budget for it. However, after hearing from family and friends that their biggest regret was not having one, we knew we had to make it work. Vanilla Video was very budget-friendly from the beginning, and their website was incredibly helpful for determining price from the get-go. You can pick and choose what services you want, so you aren't locked into packages. We also received what we ordered within days of our wedding via email-very easy. Our videographer was very professional. Thanks for making this part of wedding planning easy!

  • Vanilla Video, there is nobody like them!! They are beyond-words-amazing. They filmed my husband and I’s wedding day this past March. We could not be happier with the footage. The part about Vanilla that originally drew us to them, is that you get all of your raw footage and can choose to add on different edited versions. We loved this! This is exactly what we wanted! We knew that a few clips set to cheesy background music is not our style. Instead we wanted to be able to watch the day just as it happened. We have hours of raw footage from the day and a few different edited versions to show friends and family as well. Frank was our main contact at the Vanilla office. He made everything very easy to plan and designed a package of coverage that fit exactly what we needed. On the wedding day, our videographers (we had two, Cassie and Nick) fit seamlessly into the flow of our day. They captured all our most special moments, without being intrusive. In re-watching our videos, my husband... Read more

  • I found Vanilla Video by looking through WeddingWire vendors and I wanted a budget friendly option. Most videographers can be very pricey, but I was just looking for my wedding to be captured, nothing fancy. Vanilla Vanilla lets you customize the package you're looking for so you just get what you need/want to pay for. Ian was great on the day of and was just behind the scenes capturing everything. I got my video back in 4 weeks and we had so much fun watching it. This is a great option for those looking to keep it budget friendly but still quality footage.
