Perfect Wedding Experience!

Doug was SO amazing to work with! He was everything that we were searching for in a videographer and so much more - professional, creative, easy going and extremely dedicated. He was always quick to respond and was completely devoted to capturing our wedding vision from the very beginning. On our wedding day Doug made us feel very comfortable and communicated what he wanted us to do in each of our shots perfectly. He was very laid back and funny also which made setting up for each shot easy. We are not used to being in front of the camera and were worried that we were going to feel awkward but Doug took all of the stress out of shooting and made it such a fun experience. We received all of our videos and RAW files back quickly (within 3 weeks) which was incredible! All of the videos are absolutely beautiful and we feel that Doug captured us and our love story perfectly. He went above and beyond to capture all of the candid moments with our family, friends and wedding party and to take gorgeous shots of our venue and décor setup as well. We cannot thank him enough for being such a huge part of our special day and capturing all of the memories that we will now be able to look back on whenever we want to for the rest of our lives! We would highly recommend Through the Lenz to anyone looking to ensure that every moment of their special day is captured with a high attention to detail! :)

Amazing Wedding Video!

Thru the Lenz did an amazing job capturing all the wonderful moments from our wedding! The video they put together included all of the highlights and allowed us to relive the best moments from our big day. They were always professional and took our feedback to made sure the video was suited towards our vision. I would highly recommend them as a wedding vendor!

Grateful we decided on videography

We had waffled on getting videography and hired Doug about two months out from our wedding. We are so glad we did, Doug was so relaxed with a big infectious laugh and knew when to blend in with the scenery and let things flow and when to jump in and direct us. He worked well with our photographer who he had never worked with before and we captured all our good shots.
Our venue was double booked and having a rodeo the same dayy (yes, really) and Doug just laughed it off and rolled with it, which was exactly how we were handling it too.
He had a sneak peak back to us in a couple of days, the fully edited video, plus ceremony and speeches within a couple of weeks AND he sent us a hilarious blooper reel of assorted things going awry. So thankful we added in videography at the last minute and that Doug was able to do it.

Best Experience with a vendor!

Doug was very professional and fast to respond to any questions we both had from start to finish. He made sure our vision was brought to life in our wedding video and also included a personal touch I have never seen before! The best way to remember your special day is through Prime Lenz, & I would recommend them to any couple looking to make sure every moment is captured! 10/10!

Professional, Polite, and a Pleasure to work with

Doug was exactly what I was searching for in a Videographer and captured my wedding day beautifully. As someone who doesn't like being filmed or having their picture taken, it was important to have a professional that would not force my husband and I into awkward situations for a photo-op. Doug made us feel very comfortable and communicated very well throight the entire process. He was able to capture our day in a very creative and thoughtful video and highlight reel and returned the results in really good time. I highly recommend Doug for any vision you want brought to life. I am so happy with his work.

Ceremony memories forever

I admit when we first started wedding planning, we were not sure what our video budget would be (or if we would even use a professional). We decided to contact Doug and it became obvious that he was the perfect choice. Doug walked us through the finished product that he would deliver and we met with him to describe our goals. He created and shared a wonderful memory of our meaningful ceremony. He communicated throughout the week of the wedding and I never doubted his ability to capture the day, while being respectful of our wishes. He delivered the finished product quickly and it was absolutely perfect. Thank you Doug for everything!

Doug and Amy did pictures and video for my wedding.

Doug and Amy were very professional. Doug was quick to follow up and devoted to giving me my vision. He really went above and beyond with editing, and constant contact, and communication. We loved the video of our ceremony and were pleasantly surprised to hear ourselves throughout. (I didn't know my husband to be had a mic on until I asked him about it looking at pictures of the ceremony afterward). It was so much more than we expected. I would highly recommend this awesome couple for any event.

Conscientious but relaxed

Doug got photos of every moment we wanted to capture, along with suggesting some we never thought of! At the same time, he was easygoing and funny, making the photos incredibly fun to take!

Oct 2021 live stream

Doug was perfect for helping us with our wedding livestream to our overseas family. He took the time to make sure we were happy with how things would work, tested all the equipment before the big day and then sent us a copy of our ceremony within a couple hours of it being over. So happy to have this memory forever!

I have been behind the video camera for as long as I can remember. One of my first toys was a video camera you could plug into a TV. After that, I would walk around with my Dad’s camcorder and narrate everyday life. I won several awards for short films I shot or produced in college. I really love projects I can be creative on. After I graduated from TV Broadcasting school, I worked at Bell Media for 10 years, but now my focus is on making videos.

The best part about shooting weddings is seeing the reactions to the final video. There are laughs, there are tears, and there is always a happy couple when they get to see the video. Your videographer is beside you for your entire wedding day, and I love to become friends with the whole wedding party. The more fun and emotion we capture, the better the video will be!

When I’m not shooting, I’m working on mastering After Effects and 3D animation. I love to add animations to videos. I 3D design models and 3D print. I have an Etsy page with 3D printed toys and knick-knacks. I play rhythm guitar in a metal band (I don’t know any of the lyrics!), and I’d never say no to Thai food.
