    Glimmer films review

    When my wife and I met with Glimmer Films for the first time, we knew we had to have them do our wedding. The had a lot of knowledge about Indian weddings and it made the process a lot easier. The contract was clear and there were no misunderstandings. Due to covid, we also had to change our wedding date and reception date a few times and they were able to always accommodate and be there for us even on short notice causing their crew to not to be able book other events. The crew were all so cheerful and happy and made us have a lot of fun during the photoshoots as if we were models! We would definitely recommend Glimmer Films to all our friends and family. Thank you Glimmer Films for an amazing job capturing our special moments.

    Highly recommend Glimmer!

    I booked Glimmer for my wedding week in May 2021. Corey was super responsive and helpful, and accommodated all changes to our booking in light of the changing restrictions due to Covid-19. The Glimmer team went above and beyond to ensure our wedding week went smoothly even with the uncertainty of restrictions. They provided fair and reasonable solutions (e.g., date changes, refunds) as applicable in our situation. I would highly reccomend the glimmer team as they are professional and communicate in a timely manner.

    Exceptional

    My husband and I made the decision to get married in 2018, and right away we started to look at all the venues and vendors we needed in 2019. I had always been a big fan of Glimmer, and had told my husband that. We went to meet the team in their office with our parents, and from that day onwards, we have never regretted our decision. Glimmer covered ALL our wedding events along with our pre-wedding events: photos and videos. The team was so patient with us and our families at every event. They shared their knowledge with us as they were walking us through the routines, which helped our families and us as a couple as well. We worked with over ten of the talented team members and they were all amazing! If you are interested in taking a hands on approach to make sure your videos and photos turn out just as you imagined them, then we heavily recommend GLIMMER!

    Great team

    If you’re looking for someone to capture all the special moments during your wedding, go with Glimmer Films. The entire team was so easy to work with and was very accommodating. They listened to what we wanted to capture during our wedding festivities and also used their own judgement and experience. As a result, the final products turned out amazing. From candid shots to photo shoots, everything was immaculate. The quality of images is absolutely breathtaking.
    The wedding video was shot in way that it brought those moments back to life. We didn’t want to watch hours of our raw wedding footage, so the editing had to be perfect. Glimmer did such an amazing job at showcasing the entire wedding without giving the feel that anything major was edited out.
    The quality of photo books we received of our pre-wedding shoot, the wedding album, and the guest book, is something that is made to last for years.
    Overall, we had an amazing experience with Glimmer and have recommended them to our friends and family, who also had similar experience working with the team. Highly recommended!

    Great experience with management and staff

    I hired Glimmer videography for our same day wedding and reception. Their team arrived earlier than given, which was great, and were friendly to work with. Given the circumstances that the entire wedding was in one day, they did a great job. I was in communication with Corey the entire time and he was very friendly, easy to work with, and showed professionalism. When my wife and I sat down with the editor to review the footage, it was a great experience. He was very helpful and patient when we were choosing what music and what scenes to show. Overall I would recommend Glimmer to anyone for any occasion.

    Excellent service and product!

    Glimmer films did an excellent job in creating and editing our products. The NDE was beautiful and captured many key moments. The photographers and videographers were very easy to deal with and made us feel comfortable and helped out when there were a few technical issues with the hall for our reception. Editing was a very smooth process as well. We received our final products within a reasonable time frame and were happy with all of them. We would definitely choose Glimmer Films again!

    Amazing and Memorable !

    Glimmer was absolutely amazing! They were timely, professional and catered to exactly what we wanted. We still get compliments on our pre shots, wedding photos and next day edit film. As everyone knows, weddings consume a lot of time and stress and Glimmer made this process very easy. They were emailing and checking in to remind us of various requirements for slideshow/canvas' etc. The support we received was impeccable. From the videographers, photographers and office staff, everyone was knowledgeable, kind and did anything and everything to make us happy. We would highly recommend Glimmer to future couples who are looking for quality service and product! A huge thank you to the Glimmer team!

    Glimmer was the BEST part about our Wedding!

    My husband and I wanted to find a team with a fantastic portfolio as our wedding was coming up in February. We were referred to a company by the name of Glimmer films located in B.C. After talking with Brian and his team, we were confident that we made the right decision in having them capture all our memories. The whole experience from the beginning to the end was very professional. We never had to worry about missing any moments as the team had video and photography captured them from every angle. We are nearing the end of the final product completion and are amazed at the creativity glimmer has put into our photo and videos. Brian even made sure that we had a great photo shoot after learning that our wedding planner decided to leave our venue. We were clearly distraught and and frustrated about that incident, however, Brian made sure it didn’t show. The pictures turned out amazing! Thank you to Glimmer Films for capturing all the beautiful moments. We would highly recommend Glimmer films for your venue! The whole team is great, and their work speaks for itself!

    Incredible, professional, fun, and well priced.

    Glimmer Films was professional, on time, with great sense of humors. Furthermore, they instructed us on what they needed us to do for each picture which is much better than creating your own ideas. They know exactly what they are doing. Their pictures came out perfect and capture some of our best and most favorite moments. We would happily hire them again. Thank you so much Glimmer! You are truly the best!

    Amazing Service!

    We hired Glimmer for our pre-wedding and wedding photography & videography. Our reception was out of town as the grooms side was from another country. Glimmer in comparison to the others in the market was super reasonable and we had seen their products at others wedding so knew their work and I have to say we were not disappointed. They took care of us from the get go. We had a few mishaps during our pre-wedding shots but they waited with us and gave us an extra hour. We even needed some work expedited for our reception and they were able to send it to us. Overall it was a great experience and they became a part of the wedding as they understood the family and the bridal party and what we all were looking for.
