    Being someone who likes to do a lot of research – sometimes way more than necessary – I would urge every couple looking for a videographer to end their search with Patrick. The man is more than just a videographer. He’s an accomplished film maker and a gifted story teller with an innate ability to capture and subtly accentuate the many profound emotions that well up during a wedding. In fact, this is one of the first things I noticed in Patrick’s videos. Unlike many other videographers who tend to follow a standard template to “get the job done”, a quick look through Patrick’s portfolio revealed his dynamic and unique approach to shooting each wedding. In essence, he tells the story of each couple in the way it should be told for them. We were pleasantly surprised when Patrick volunteered to tag along on our engagement photo shoot and capture beautiful moments that were so elegantly fused into our highlight reel and final wedding video. He even hung out with us after the engagement shoot to get to know us better and we felt glad to have made a new friend. On the wedding day, Patrick brought along his lovely partner Mafalda who helped with capturing our special day from alternate angles. Together, they both brought a smile to everyone’s faces and made everyone in the bridal party feel extremely comfortable. As a musician, one of the things I truly admire about Patrick is his ear for picking out music that perfectly complements the story being told. This is definitely one of his biggest strengths & it effectively preserves the emotions that every couple would want to treasure for years. The end product is more than we could ask for and I’m truly thankful for Patrick’s patience and professional attitude in accommodating all of our requests. He was also able to capture all the significant moments of our wedding day with minimal guidance! It is so easy to tell that Patrick puts his heart into his work and patience will yield a rewarding wait & precious wedding memory!

    Words cannot describe how wonderful it was to have Patrick be such a special part of our wedding day. He came highly recommended from a friend and yet he still exceeded our expectations! His professionalism, expertise, patience and personable nature made him truly lovely to work with before, during, and after our wedding. Patrick's attention to detail and unique, artistic perspective made our wedding film a true masterpiece and one we will cherish with family and friends for a lifetime. From start to finish, Patrick created a film that truly encapsulates us as a couple, our story, and the vision of our wedding. From the perfect selection of music to the overlay of some of the most memorable lines from our families speeches, Patrick's work through-and-through screams perfection! We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out and have already had some of our best friends book Patrick for their special wedding days. Thank you Patrick, from the bottom of our hearts, for giving us the gift of being able to relive our wedding day whenever we want!
    Many thanks,
    Jocelyn & Justin St. Germain

    We can confidently say that hiring Patrick as our videographer was one of the best decisions we’ve made for our wedding. He does not simply shoot a wedding video; he creates a film that tells a story. He captured the wedding day well from the very beginning to the end, from the vibe of the day, the interactions among family members and friends, the special moments, and all of the aesthetic details of the wedding. The artistic and creative elements of the film are undeniable (see it for yourself). Not only he captured all the special details, his artistic touches made the film authentic and genuine. His choice of music was spot-on. The wedding film he created touches the hearts of our family and friends who watched it. We shared our highlight film on the social media and received many positive comments. Everyone was amazed at his work. In person, Patrick is such a pleasure to be around. He is charismatic, has a calm presence and is very kind. He is also flexible to suggestions and accommodating to our needs (and we are very particular people!). Last but not least, he is a true filmmaker and story teller, who understands not only the important nuances of a wedding, but also how to tell a story in a beautiful yet effortless way.

    Patrick did a wonderful job with our wedding video - it was elegant and beautiful. He really captured the flavour of who we were as a couple and he seemed to capture all the right angles. After seeing Patrick's work, I was delighted to see how well executed it was and how it lacked the cheesiness I tend to associate with other videographer's work. He is also a great person to work with - super helpful and friendly. I highly recommend him!

    We loved our wedding video. It brought all friends and family to tears! The way that Patrick captured every moment and brought it all together in a video was incredible! He was referred to us by friends and I would likewise refer him to anyone looking for a videographer! Thanks again Patrick.

    I wish my experiences with my other wedding vendors had been as awesome as working with Patrick.

    I am SO thankful I randomly stumbled upon a link for Patrick's website. I liked his work online, so we decided to drop by for a chat and kinda went with him based on a gut feeling that he'd be great. It was that easy.

    We are thrilled with the final product. He captured the energy of the day beautifully, the music choice was perfect, and I love that we have the wedding captured to watch any time we want (on Blu-Ray, DVD, and on Vimeo - Thanks Patrick!).

    Patrick was kind, professional, and had a laid back and positive energy to him. He just blended in on the day of, and quietly did his thing. A few months later, I am presented with the best parts of the nights all wrapped beautifully in a short film. So fun!

    He is extremely talented, so I insist you check out his work and go meet him. : )

    One less thing to worry about, now go finish off the rest of your check list!

    15 people shared our link (and counting), 403 views (in 2 days) and I was bombarded with messages today asking who did it... We saw a same day edit (from another videographer) today in the morning of a couple we know and it was 5 min of the bride and groom getting ready...(I gave up after the first minute, my husband told me later that's what the video was about)... Our guests were coming to us and saying how they've never seen anything like that (same day edit showing most of what happened throughout the entire day, not just in the morning)...You're absolutely incredible, easy to work with (half of the time I was forgetting I was being video-graphed), and worth every single penny!! Thank you so so much again! We're all absolutely in awe from your beautiful and elegant work!

    Patrick is truly an amazing person to know. We were introduced to him by my maid of honour who saw his work through a co-worker. We contacted him after watching his films and he came to our condo, met us and our dog, and worked with us to come to a package that would suit our budget and needs.

    Patrick is extremely professional and cares about his work. He is a stand up guy. He actually did 3 parts for our wedding - he did a save the date video for us, and then met with us the day we did our engagement photos and "tagged along" while capturing some material to use for our wedding Same Day Edit.

    I was at the begining worried about the Same Day Edit as he hadnt had much experience doing them... but my worries couldnt have been further alleviated. He showed up on the wedding day , bright and early and with his assistant, and ready to roll - he was there to capture all of our special moments and from what he played at the wedding...and what i continue to send to my friends and family... they are amazed at his work. I truthfully cant even believe we were lucky enough to secure someone of so much incredible talent for the price we did. If I had to, I would pay more.

    I honestly couldnt recommend patrick enough. If you want someone to hang out with one what is likely to be the most emotional and hectic day of your life...someone who is calm and collected and quick and efficient and professional...someone whose going to see the true beauty of your day and capture it in the most amazing way - so much that it brings you to tears and everyone you show.... I would suggest you book him.

    Thank you Patrick for everything you did - we cant wait to see the final film. Im sure it will be incredible and we wish you much success (as we know will come your way).

    Fiorella & Adam
