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

Wedding in Invermere
We had our wedding in Invermere and Dan Kim captured all the beauty of the surrounding mountain and at the same time visually enhanced the love between my wife and I. The photos were top notch! He took the time to get quality photos while letting us be ourselves. He made us feel so comfortable and was extremely receptive to our ideas and input.Sent on 17/10/2020
I would highly recommend Dan not only because he is an incredible human but is an extremely talented photographer.

Love Our Wedding Videography
We had the pleasure of working with Dan for our August 2020 wedding in Lake Louise. We had never met Dan before the morning of our wedding (which might make some brides nervous) but he showed up right on time and made us feel at ease from the first moment he started filming. We honestly didn't know what to expect with a videographer. I was worried we would feel he would "be in the way" BUT it was the exact opposite. We honestly didn't even feel like he was there filming every moment. I have been to weddings where the videographer is fumbling around, in the way of photos etc. but Dan was so natural and professional while still capturing amazing videos of our wedding day. No ask was too big like when we had to make the poor guy trek in the mountain rain to take photos while he was getting soaked. We would highly recommend Dan for your wedding day!Sent on 02/10/2020

Dan was great to work with! He was very accommodating and went out of his way to ensure we got coverage on the specific moments we wanted! He was extremely professional and met everyone's needs! He arrived early even though there was a snow storm and was very attentive throughout the whole event. The price was also very reasonable. Thanks for everything Dan! It was a pleasure working with you and your team, we LOVE our photos and video! Highly recommend!Sent on 13/12/2019

Wonderful experience, amazing video!
We were planning a wedding in Calgary from Nova Scotia, which could have been a nightmare but great vendors like Dan Kim helped things go as smoothly as they could have! Dan was very communicative and accommodating (even though we were three hours ahead!), and the service he provided was so professional and friendly!Sent on 03/12/2019
He did a great job of fitting into everything going on without standing out (I don't even know how he got some of those shots!) and the video turned out perfectly! He really captured a perfect moment for my wife and I so beautifully!
Would highly recommend working with him!
Dan Kim Studios Photo + Film's reply:Thanks a lot Clayton for taking the time to give us a review. You and Marcia have a really awesome group of family and friends. The venues you two chose were also pretty amazing!I I'm so glad that i was able to be a part of the big day!

Exceeded Our Expectations
We thoroughly enjoyed having Dan & Claudia at our wedding. They were friendly and professional, and had great senses of humour which made some of those awkward moments not so awkward. But not only were they great the day of, they were great leading up to and following our big day. We knew exactly what to expect from them the day of our wedding. Following the wedding Dan called me to chat about the video - there was a minor and uncontrollable concern of his which made some of the video not quite perfect. Dan provided some additional, complimentary footage to make up for the small, uncontrollable concerns. On top of all of the above, they also got all of the footage to us earlier than they had promised. We would recommend Dan & Claudia over and over and over again!Sent on 25/11/2019
Dan Kim Studios Photo + Film's reply:Thank you so much Amanda for the great review! You and Chris had a beautiful wedding day. We are very grateful for trusting us to capture such an amazing day! - Dan & Claudia

Simply no better videographers than Dan and Claudia!
Oh boy, I do not have enough space here to write how grateful I am for the work these two did for us on our special day and all the ways they were truly the most amazing videographers we could have ever asked for. Dan was the first videographer to actually make the effort to give me a call, from that first conversation himself and Claudia put in an amazing amount of effort to get to know my fiance and I in order to create the most amazing videos ever. We were actually in a different city from where we were getting married so Dan and Claudia actually facetimed us to learn more. They are extremely friendly, professional, and I simply felt as though I could trust them with our day from the start. This is huge because there is no redoing the day, you simply hope all the moments you want are captured. Dan and Claudia did an unbelievable job capturing our day and editing it in a way that truly matched the day and ourselves as a couple, down to the chosen songs. The way that they overlap the words spoken with shots of the people that are being spoken about is remarkable. They were also extremely open to learning what we wanted captured and what we were looking for. I could not recommend Dan and Claudia more, you cannot go wrong. I would also recommend getting videographers for your wedding (some only go with photos). I won't lie, I have probably watched my wedding video every night since we got married three months ago. Thank you Dan and Claudia soooo much!!! You have truly blessed us, over and over, we can relive the best day ever! :)Sent on 14/03/2019
