    Amazingly Talented Cinematographer!!!

    Chris is absolutely amazing!! While searching for a videographer in GTA I came across Ripeful Heart Films and as soon as I watched one of his films on the website I knew I wanted him to shoot our wedding. All his films are stunning!

    We had two days of events – a Traditional Nigerian Marriage Ceremony on a Thursday and the Wedding Ceremony and Reception on Saturday. Chris showed up on time for both days to setup and get a good lay of the land. He is easy going and professional, Chris made sure we were always comfortable while he was filming. His filming approach in capturing candid and spontaneous moments helped us to relax by lightening the mood and relieving some of the stress of the big day. Another wonderful thing about Chris was how seamlessly he worked with our photographers, he was very adaptable.

    Derek was the second cinematographer that worked with Chris on the day of our wedding and reception. Derek showed up promptly to setup and worked well with our photographers. His filming style is quite like Chris’ and he was professional. It was great having a second videographer around as they really complemented each other.

    When our films arrived, we were thrilled beyond measure with them!! We got the full package with the Highlight Film, Feature Film and Documentary Edit. Each film was remarkable and we enjoyed watching them over again. Chris captured the important moments and the editing was amazing. Everything was beautiful – the music, flow, transitions e.t.c. It was astounding to watch as all the films came together quite nicely.

    We are excited and proud to share our wedding films with our friends and family and look forward to watching and cherishing them for the rest of our lives. Chris Drover is an extremely talented cinematographer and we will be forever thankful for his amazing films!

    Thank you so much Vanessa for the wonderful words! Your wedding was such a beautiful celebration of love and happiness and you were both so amazing to work with! All the best! :)

    An Authentic Wedding Day Story

    We had originally taken Videographer out of our budget as we really didn't have room in the budget. But then we came across Ripeful Heart Wedding Films and we knew we had to make changes our the budget. We would highly recommend Ripeful Heart Wedding Films to our friends and family (in fact we already have). Chris is awesome and he was so great to work with! The whole process is so easy with him (which is a breath of fresh air in the wedding planning process).

    He was like family on our wedding day. We felt like Chris understood us as soon as we met him. He was so comfortable to be around and we could barely tell he was filming. The film Chris put together is not only more beautiful than we could have imagined, it feels real and authentic. He told our wedding day story beautifully, but it also feels like he told our love story too. I'm not too sure how he does it. So many things out there don't feel real these days. But everyone of Ripeful Heart's wedding films looks and feels unique to that couple. He captured our wedding day as it really was and so many moments and details that we wouldn't have seen.

    If you've decided to go with a videographer, we highly highly recommend them. And I know you will too after your wedding day.

    Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:

    Thank you so much Samantha, you're too sweet! I really enjoyed working with you both. Thank you for having me capture your special day!

    Chris is a perfectionist and insists on getting the perfect shot. He's a friend when you're exhausted, and works with the couple to get them smiling for the video. The final highlight reel of our wedding was absolutely perfect-capturing the essence and emotion of every part of our big day. The video quality was amazing, the color correction was beautiful, and the audio overlay was tastefully done. I couldn't think of a single change I'd make to Chris' final video, and that's a testimony to how incredible his work is!

    Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:

    Thank you Vance! I really enjoyed working with you both! Your first dance was incredible! I'm so happy you love your Highlight Film.

    Ripeful Heart is amazing! Chris was our videographer and he is just an absolute pleasure to work with. Chris is very quick to respond to any questions you may have, is very professional and is always on time with just about everything! We chose to do the 3 min feature, 10 min highlight and full doc edit and I am really pleased to have selected all three because it really depends on what you want to use or showcase, depending on your audience. Each edit was done very well and I am very happy with his product. On the wedding day, Chris was on time (actually he was early and was just taking some footage outside of the house!) and was very easy to be around the entire day (sometimes I didn't even notice him!) I don't how how he does it but he seems to capture just about everything perfectly. I definitely recommend Christ and Ripeful Heart to anyone who is looking for a videographer!

    After seeing my cousins wedding video from Ripeful Heart last summer, I knew I had to have them come to my wedding. We immediately loved the style of how they perfectly time the music with the footage, and how they included dialogue from the ceremony and speeches. Adrian was so professional throughout the whole event - you hardly noticed he was there. Our highlight film gives me a chill every time I watch it – I don’t think I will ever lose that feeling. Thank you so much for giving us all these memories of the best day of our lives!

    Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with and made the entire experience a great one.

    On the days leading up to our wedding, he met with us so that we could get to know each other. He spoke to us about what was important to us and so he could make sure that our wedding films would be exactly what we wanted.

    On the day of our wedding, Chris made the whole experience so relaxing and easy-going. He made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Not to mention, Chris is just such a great and funny guy. He's so easy to get along with.

    Most of all, our wedding highlight film is something my husband and I will cherish forever. Chris captured every favourite moment of ours. Every time we watch it, it's like we're reliving those beautiful moments we shared and, with the help of his film, will remember for the rest of our lives. After watching it for the first time, my husband actually said to me, "It's like i'm living this dream all over again. It reminds me just how much I love you and why i asked you to marry me."

    Chris was also very patient with us and accommodated our requests for changes to our films. He did everything he could to get our films to be exactly what we wanted them to be.

    Thank you Chris and Ripeful Heart Wedding Films for letting us relive this special moment over and over again.

    We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends.

    Cindy and Jonathan.

    Beyond exceptional!

    My husband and I got married in August and we used Chris as our videographer. He was beyond exceptional and truly captured every moment of our day. Working with Chris was such a wonderful experience. He was able to answer all of our questions when needed leading up to our day and he was very laid back and made us feel at ease to be ourselves. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have worked with Chris.

    Absolutely recommend Ripeful Heart

    Chris was excellent on the day, worked very well with our photographer even though they hadn't met before. Leading up to the wedding he made everything very easy and was flexible with the package that best suited us. The final video was beautiful, we couldn't have asked for a better result.
