    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!

    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 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!

    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.

    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.

    Amazing wedding videographer!

    Working with Ripeful Heart was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process! Chris was so amazing from start to finish - he is beyond talented! Christian captured our day beautifully and surprised us with so many moments we would have missed otherwise!

    Chris was awesome!

    We were unsure at first if we were going to hire a videographer for our wedding but I am so glad that we did and that we chose Chris! It was definitely worth it. We are so happy with our highlight film we watch it all the time. It is also so great to look back and be able to re-watch all of our speeches since so much of what was said is hard to remember with all the emotions and how busy the day is! Thanks Chris :)

    Chris was fantastic from start to finish

    We had Chris shoot our wedding on July 2018. We were looking for someone flexible in terms of production style and creative at the same time. We wanted our video to be organic, honest and one that highlights some of the best emotional and happy moments. Chris delivered all of the above.

    He is also very professional and extremely friendly. We knew we could trust him completely. On our wedding day, we did not brief him with any details, no questions asked (we had one phone conversation before our wedding) - he seems to know his way around and what needs to be done.

    We are so grateful we had him shoot our wedding. We highly recommend him to any couples looking for a wedding videographer. All the best Chris!

    Absolutely stunning wedding film & impeccable service

    I often hear many couples planning their weddings that are on the fence about whether to have a videographer or not. All I can say is that I am so grateful that we not only decided to work with a videographer, but that we were lucky enough to work with Ripeful Heart. Chris Drover is an artist and a genius. Chris is so professional but also so fun to work with. Chris records his footage completely under the radar and never made us feel like we were forcing a pose or action for the video. The end result is stunning wedding film that looks easy and natural. The product we received is totally worth the investment - the value and quality is unbelievable! Chris captured the way our day really felt, and we can't thank him enough for everything.
