    The Cesoir team that covered our wedding (Nick, Dian and Jakub) was AMAZING and so much fun to work with. Their personality and professionalism made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. We met the trio the day of the wedding, and couldn’t have asked for a better group for the day. They were kind, funny, efficient and pleasant to be around. They were great at giving directives, and each was uniquely creative in offering ideas and went above our expectations in ensuring that moments were nicely captured. Their hard work and efforts resulted in a masterfully edited video and elegant wedding pictures. Our appreciation and thankfulness must go to David for putting this team together and for coordinating the process; we hope others are fortunate to work with this trio on their special day. With sincerity, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and outcome.

    We are so thrilled with our photos and with our experience with David and his team at Cesoir Studios. Everything from start to finish was wonderful. David and Chris took the time to understand what we wanted and they totally delivered. We had so much fun working with them on the big day. They gave great direction, kept us organized, and were so creative. David even went out of his way to make sure we got this special, spur-of-the-moment shot with an elk! The photos are stunning. They captured so many moments beautifully; we can't stop looking at them. We would 100% recommend them to other couples. Do yourself a favor and hire them!

    I absolutely loved my highlight video! I am so so so happy we got the drone as well, the shots turned out amazing!!! The team is so patient and flexible to work with. I was a very detail-oriented bride who knew exactly what she wanted and they went above and beyond to achieve that. I highly recommend CESOIR studios because not only are they easy to work with but the end results are amazing and you will enjoy and watch over and over for years to come. Highly recommend this company to capture your special day!

    Couples spend so much on that day and on a photographer that the expectation is that whoever is hired is going to be interested in doing the job.

    CESOIR studios's reply:

    Dear client,

    I understand from your review that you were not pleased with our services. Can you please explain in detail and specifically which parts you were not pleased with?

    We had the pleasure of photographing your wedding and the photos turned out fantastic!

    It states in your contract that you were to receive 300-500 edited images. You received 1485 fully retouched and edited images of your wedding day which is far more than what we agreed on and we were happy to give you more. You stated that our “Quality of Service” and “Value” was bad or regular. We gave you 4x as many photos as was stated in our contract so I’m confused as to why you wrote this.

    Also we were happy to provide flexibility in your payments of $200 per month until the total was paid without any type of extra fee or interest. I would understand out gesture as being positive and part of good customer service.

    The one apology I have to make to you which was already stated to you in person was that when you came to pick up the photos we had accidentally scheduled your pickup the following day and were not ready the day before as the photos still had an hour to export from Lightroom. We apologize for inconvenience this had caused you. When you came back the next day everything was ready for you.

    I hope that you’re enjoying your photos and that you have many framed and printed photographs across your home. We are very proud of the amazing images that we took of you and your husband.

    Sincerely,

    CESOIR studios

    We couldn't be happier with all of the footage from our wedding!
    So impressed that David was willing to brave the -30 degree temps to get some great outdoor shots!

    I cannot say enough good things about CESOIR! I made a few calls to other videographers and the fit did not seem right until I was told about CESOIR. They are professional and friendly....exactly what you want on your wedding day. I was hesitant if a video was worth it but the only regret I have is not doing it for the full day. They really capture the feeling of the wedding and not just the moments.

    Working with David and his group was a great experience! They had lots of fantastic ideas, took amazing photos, and were a pleasure to work with. David turned around our photos very quickly which was highly appreciated. We were really happy with our photos - there was a great deal of variety within the photos and all were taken with the utmost skill and professionalism.
