Hi, I'm Austin Thompson. My passion is to capture your special day through cinematography and to piece together the love story as it unfolds on your special day. My desire is to make somehting unique for you because your story is like no other.
Please, take a moment and share in the love between the couples whose stories are here and share with me your thoughts on how I can help capture your love on your special day.
"Thanks so much for sharing our video a few days before we were expecting it. It was no problem at all to wait for the video. It didn't even seem that long as we were already so so happy with the teaser, and are now even more amazed with the video. We can't say enough about how beautiful your work is. Thank you for creating our perfect story. We are so grateful that Paula recommended you. Not only are you and your wife such wonderful and pleasant people to be around, but you were able to capture every precious moment from our wedding day in which we can relive over and over. Every detail of the video was captured so beautifully. Our friends and family raved about the teaser, which they described as being more like a film than a wedding. Everyone, including us, loved how you designed the video. We are so excited to share our wedding video with everyone. Thanks again for sharing this before the holidays, as we know things are getting busy for you with your expanding family :)"
"We would recommend Arexfilms to anyone getting married. Austin was so kind and professional, and the beauty of his work speaks for itself! He took intimate and gorgeous video without us even realizing he was there. He has a steady hand that captures little funny moments, beautiful moments of light, and clear and vivid colors and audio. He is also a really gifted editor, impeccably arranging our vows and video of our family and friends dancing. The result is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
I was especially glad that my grandmother, who was too ill to attend our wedding, was able to experience it through a lovingly-crafted video. She passed away recently, but on our last visit with her we were able to show her our video, and she was so happy. Austin even rushed production of our video so that we could show it to her. He is a true artist and a rare person indeed.
"Working with Austin ended up being one of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding day. He had this amazing ability to capture the way we truly felt about each other & translate it into something we could watch. People who weren’t able to attend watched the video & said they actually felt like they had been there. We’re both so glad we have this video to watch for the rest of our lives!"
"We absolutely loved working with you! Everything about our wedding video completely exceeded our expectations. Our favorite thing about our experience is how you took the time to get to know our personalities and incorporated that into our video to make it feel uniquely ours. We appreciate all of your attention to detail especially the shots of the surrounding area of our venue and the breathtaking aerials! You have a talent that is truly one of a kind and we will be forever grateful for capturing our wedding day in a way we can enjoy for the rest of our lives!"
"We had Austin shoot our wedding in June of 2014. We were referred by a friend who lives out of the area, and so the first time that I met him was the morning of the wedding. Honestly, I was nervous, having only communicated with him via email and text beforehand. As soon as I shook his hand, my worries disappeared. With one look at him, I could tell how capable he was, and that I was dealing with a very creative, detail-oriented person.
At the event he was great, helping direct us to get the best shots, as well as working well with our family and friends. He seemed like he was truly enjoying himself, not just working.
The final product... blew me away. He told the story of the day; the emotion, the love, the fun. The way that he cut everything together was perfect. Music choice was impeccable. I watch other wedding videos and am sad for those couples because I know Austin could have done a better job than their videographer. He hit a home run... I don't know if I've ever seen someone over deliver the way he did.
When I read reviews like these, I always want to know "what went wrong". So, the only drawback to Austin was that he did take a fair amount of time to get the final video completed. I think it was about 8 or 9 weeks. I've seen other companies with faster turn around... but their videos also aren't as well produced, so there is probably a correlation there. The only other issue that I have was that the sound was messed up during the ceremony... but I'm pretty sure that was the DJ's fault. Those are the only minor things that I could possibly say negatively.
Basically, this guy is a stud. I follow his other posts on vimeo, and it seems like he always does a fantastic job. Cannot highly recommend enough."
"It was a pleasure working with Austin and we absolutely love our wedding video! It captured our special day beautifully. The music, the effects, all the important moments and details he made sure to include...we couldn't have asked for anything better! "
"Austin Thompson is an artist! The wedding video he created for us captured the heart and soul of our day and emphasized the beauty and romance of our venues. We were late, we were stressed, but he was calm and professional and the result is a video of memories we treasure."
"My wife and I were married in June of 2010. We were on a tight budget and our previous videographer cancelled on us. We hired Austin as our videographer with less than 3 months to the wedding and let me tell you: the guy was worth every penny. His team was courteous and professional and most of all, practically invisible the entire wedding. Not only did he give us an incredible video from start to finish, but he did it in a timely fashion. The final cut was everything we could have asked for and more. It had time lapses, shots of the bride in all her glory and even the groomsmen dance at the reception. I was shocked at how much he covered. Additionally, he was able to use all of our songs from our recommended playlist in his final edits. Aside from his incredible talent for shooting and editing, Austin has competitive pricing that rivals almost any competitor. If you want quality video for your wedding for a great price, then Arexfilms is the way to go. Book him now before it's too late!"
