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!Sent on 12/12/2018
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:Thank you so much Shannon! I had such a wonderful time working with you on your beautiful day. Big hugs to you both! :)

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 :)Sent on 08/11/2018
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:Thank you Victoria! I really enjoyed working with you both! I'm so happy you love your Highlight Film :)

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.Sent on 11/11/2018
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!
Tim & Sonia
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:Thank you so much Sonia & Tim! I truly appreciate you trusting me and giving me the opportunity to capture all those precious moments on your wedding day. All best to you both!

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!Sent on 09/12/2018
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!
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply: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! :)

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.Sent on 04/11/2018
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:Thank you so much Jessica! I had such a wonderful time capturing your beautiful wedding day. Big hugs to you both! :)

Chris is such a talented professional. He was quick to respond to emails and was on time on our wedding day. He made it easy to feel comfortable, which can be tricky when you know you are being recorded. We received our final video edit that he put together and it is our favourite thing! We have watched it over and over again reliving our day. All our family and friends absolutely loved it as well. He has this natural way of capturing the most special moments. We would definitely recommend him! Wishing Chris all the best and we hope that we are able to work with him again in the future!Sent on 02/12/2017
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:Thank you Melika! You and Scott were so great to work with! It was such a beautiful day and I really enjoyed editing your Highlight Film. 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).Sent on 18/01/2018
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!Sent on 24/11/2017
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.

Chris was amazing to work with! Awesome guy!Sent on 24/12/2017
He shows attention to detail and knows what to catch on film. The final product of the video really proved to us that he was definitely the right person to hire. Thanks so much Chris!
Natalie B · Married on 24/06/2017
We booked Chris 1 year (364 days) before our wedding. Then 9 months later (3 months shy of our wedding date), he cancels on us over email with no real explanation except he was "forced to make changes to his summer schedule which will affect our wedding date"... whatever that is code for, I don't know. All I know is that we ended up paying an additional $2000 to secure someone that we felt confident with at such short notice.Sent on 08/09/2017
I don't actually think he apologized once.
Planning a wedding is stressful, choose a reliable vendor!
Ripeful Heart Wedding Films's reply:I absolutely 100% did apologize for this change. While I was a little reluctant to let Natalie know that it was a family emergency that changed my summer schedule I now realize I should have been upfront with the situation. I tried my best to give as much notice as the emergency allowed.
