Look no further - hire Dan for wedding videographer
I am giving Dan a 5 star rating here, but if I could give him 10 stars – I would. Dan exceeded my expectations in every way possible and it was such a pleasure working with him. Not only are his rates very reasonable, but as a business owner Dan is as professional, passionate and organized as you can get. He put in so many extra hours above his contract not only because he is just the nicest guy ever, but because he will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. He is a perfectionist (I think in this field you have to be) – but I am too so we worked really well together. His attention for detail is incredible and he brought up so many good points (ex. about lighting/audio) that I never would have thought of – but are vital in creating a stunning final product. Because he detected and brought issues up early, I could work out the kinks with our venue beforehand to make sure there was zero scrambling the day of.Sent on 31/08/2020
As a person - Dan is very communicative, reliable and easy to get a hold of. Any questions or concerns and he will be happy to discuss them with you, and you can hear the passion for his work in his voice. He has a very warm and calm demeanor and makes you feel comfortable both in preparation of the big day and on the day of. Overall, he’s just a cool guy to chat with and have around, which always makes working together a lot easier and more enjoyable. One thing I really appreciated was that he reached out to our other vendors separately to work out some logistics, and even visited our wedding venue beforehand to scope out the conditions. As a bride you have a million other things to worry about, so for him to take this away and off my plate was the biggest relief. I can be a bit of a stress ball – but I can honestly say because of how prepared and professional Dan is, I did not worry about one aspect of our video because I knew he was all over it. And this is saying something as I am a type-A person…it’s usually hard for me to give up control!
To our delight, Dan delivered our final wedding videos way faster than expected – and we were thrilled with how they turned out. He takes the utmost pride in his work – and it certainly shows in his final product. I immediately forwarded the videos to all our family members and the response was unanimous – stunning and emotional videos and spread the word how amazing of a videographer Dan is.
We were originally unsure of whether to hire a wedding videographer due to budget – but after working with Dan and receiving our final cuts, we can say with certainty it was worth every penny. Without a shadow of a doubt, I would recommend Dan Kim Studios!

It was an absolute pleasure to have Dan as our wedding videographer. He was incredibly professional and the video we received exceeded our expectations. He captured all of the special moments of our day and went virtually unnoticed as he did so. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a video with superb quality. I especially appreciated how quickly he would respond to my questions via email. Thank you Dan!Sent on 20/10/2020

Focus On Why wedding videography
I originally wasn’t certain about if I wanted a video for my wedding but, from the moment I contacted Dan, I felt Excited and comfortable that he would help to provide us with a wedding video that we would love. In first speaking to Dan, he asked me a lot more questions about what I wanted in my video compared to the other videographers that I had contacted. I felt confident that I could trust him with this special day. He was very flexible and honest from start to finish in every interaction we had. We were very happy with the video from Focus On Why media and I am certainly glad that we found Dan so we could capture our wedding day and relive it forever.Sent on 16/09/2018
