Best Videographer!!

If you are looking for exceptional service, SWWF is the right choice! When I was searching for a videographer, I came across Brad's work and fell in love. I knew it was an investment we needed to make for our wedding and I am so glad we did! Brad was very quick to respond to any emails and questions we had. He went above and beyond to make both my husband and I feel special and stress free on our wedding day. He showed up early, was very professional and made sure to capture all of the important details of our wedding. Brad was such a joy to work with. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Southwest Wedding Films for capturing our wedding day! -Adam & Baylee Gonzalez

I always thought that a videographer was something extra that people added to a wedding if they could afford to do so. I am now convinced that this is a must for anyone who is planning a wedding! Here's why: Working with Brad Til it's Done Tillotson was a profound experience. Brad created two special videos for us. People always ask how did you meet? This standard wedding question can be difficult and in some cases (boring) to answer over and over again. What we did, with Brad's help, was create an amazing how we met video at Marble brewery. I was a little nervous but Brad was an instant conversationalist who helped pull the story out of me with great detail (and a Marble Red). We played this video at our wedding reception to tell intimately tell ours guests how we met and it was a hit! There are so many interactions happening during a wedding. People are laughing, crying, telling old stories, and catching up with old friends. It is impossible for the bride and groom to soak in the day in it's entirety, especially the times we weren't in attendance such as the cocktail hour due to photo taking. Brad was able to capture all the heartfelt moments in a second video so that my wife and I would relive that day by watching through someone else's eyes. We felt as if we were there and didn't skip a beat. He is a pro true and true. He captured amazing footage with his drones, jaw dropping time lapses of the sunrise and sunset and above all, my wife's beautiful laugh. He captured our best man and maid of honor speeches, and highlighted their special memories of us along with their well wishes as husband and wife. The spectacular wedding day will come and go, but this video will be with you for generations to come.

Wow! And I mean WOW! There are truly no words for our experience with Southwest Wedding Films. They did an incredible job on our wedding videography!! They were on time, enthusiastic and extremely kind. They gave great direction when needed yet also had the effortless capability of recording our day yet not making us or our guests feel like they were on camera. They meshed immediately with our friends and family. They made it not only easy but stunning. We could not recommend them more!! Thank you again Southwest Wedding Films for making our day so special.

My husband and I got married in Laguna Beach, California. We originally never booked a videographer but thankfully our minds changed when my mother-in-law showed us Southwest's breathtaking work and gifted us them as our videographers. He went above and beyond for us. Capturing extra footage the romantic night on the beach. Then of course the best day ever, our wedding. EVERYTHING I could want to be captured was, and now we can relive the day we became one!! Choose Southwest and you'll be so happy you did. - Blake & Shelby Swihart

I cannot say enough about Southwest Wedding Films. Brad and his team are absolutely phenomenal. They were very professional, took over when need be, but were also flexible (weddings are crazy and you'll always have someone to talk with). Brad was great to work with and helped me with a package that was within my budget and gave me more than I asked for. The final product is truly remarkable. They captured every moment that I wanted, made some tweaks with music when I asked, and put together a beautiful final product. I cannot thank them enough for capturing our special day and giving us something to cherish forever.

We had a tight budget for our wedding, but we knew photography would be one of the best investments overall so we really took our time looking for the right photographer. When I contacted Brad, he was quick to respond, and worked with me to find the right package for the right price. He met us for coffee and we discussed all the things that were important to us on our big day. We really felt as though Brad heard us out, and was extremely accommodating. His ideas were fantastic and he spent a lot of extra time with us planning for wedding day. We really appreciate the extra help he had in order to ensure full coverage of the day. Our wedding video is so well put together. I watch it almost every day! Brad also spend several hours editing the video and fine tuning it to ensure it was just right for us and the family. Brad is simply the best. His packages and pricing are budget friendly, he is accommodating and available, and the end result is worth every dime.

Where do I begin! I would recommend A contrast in light to anyone! Brad was amazing from the first meeting to the day of our very special day! I knew I would be hiring Brad after our initial meeting! The pricing is very, very reasonable for the services offered! Our engagement pictures were amazing! I could not be happier. Then came out wedding day:) Brad arrived promptly to the location where we were getting ready. He captured every moment of the morning! Caleb was at the location where my husband was getting ready! He captured some amazing photos. I was so pleased with both of them! They were so patient and had smiles on their faces the entire time they served us! Our pictures and video of our wedding exceeded our expectations. Thank you Brad and Caleb :)

When I started planning my wedding, I did not think of hiring a videographer, I thought pictures would be enough. Shortly after attending the Bridal Brunch in August of 2014, I started getting emails from A Contrast in Light but I didn't think much of it. Finally one day I decided to call Brad up and schedule a meeting. One of the best decisions my husband and I made. Brad was so easy-going, attentive, and always available to answer our questions. As soon as we received the link to our wedding video, tears immediately started flowing. He captured the best day of our lives so beautifully and perfectly. Even with the storm that passed through, Brad stayed and ensure that he caught all the memories our family and friends were making. If you haven't chosen your videographer, you better call A Contrast in Light! I promise, its worth it!! Thank you again Brad for all your hard work!

I absolutely loved working with Brad. From the beginning he was very helpful and knew exactly what we wanted captured. Our engagement photo session went wonderful and he was willing to go out to the NMT campus where my husband and I met. On our big day, he showed up early and was able to capture everything we wanted. He also had no problem taking specific photos that we wanted. He stayed through until practically the end of the night. Overall, he was great to work with. He is so friendly and his photos and videos are great quality. He truly captures the day perfectly. Thank you so much Brad!

Brad and his team are simply the best. They seriously know what they are doing, and they are amazing at it. They really work with you to give you a uniquely you shoot, but at the same time give you amazing work. I can't recommend Brad and his team enough. I am highly impressed with the work, and the value is simply amazing as well. Better than some more expensive photographers I have worked with in town...this is the place to go, seriously. His videography work is probably even more amazing than his photography, and that is REALLY saying quite a bit, you will not be upset with anything you get from Brad!

I am beyond impressed with Brad and A Contrast in Light. Brad definitely personalized our experience by meeting with us and staying in contact for over a year prior to our wedding, constantly ensuring he knew and was going to provide exactly what we wanted. On top of that, the quality in his work far exceeded what I could have expected from any photographer. It is so apparent by our pictures that Brad was extremely dedicated and put in a lot of work to provide the best possible photography services! Brad has a true gift and my wife and I are so blessed and happy that we were able to have him share it with us! I highly recommend Brad and A Contrast In Light.

A simple thank you does not even come close to expressing our gratitude for the stunning video Brad made for our wedding.

From the entrance to the sparklers, we thought he really captured the fun-loving time we had. The video was also the perfect compliment to the fine people who helped make the BIG DAY a success. Brad is a true professional and we highly recommend him. Our sincerest thanks Brad! Mr & Mrs Kirkpatrick

We recently had Brad and Amanda photograph our wedding in New Mexico. My husband and I live in Alaska so communication was really important to us in the planning process. Brad and Amanda were one item on our long wedding checklist that I was never worried about coming through on the big day. When our wedding day came, not only were they there through all of the prep, ceremony, and reception, but managed to photograph everything without ever feeling in the way of the event. Both myself and my husband are truly grateful for their services as their work is not only amazing, but is extremely reasonable in cost as well. I just received our pictures today and am blown away by the artistry and shots they were able to get. I would highly recommend them to capture the joy and the many small moments that make up a perfect wedding day.

Pictures are very important to me! When my husband and I started planning for a wedding in Las Cruces and a reception in Vegas I knew it was going to be tough and expensive to have both places photographed. I emailed Brad and he not only traveled to Las Cruces but also came out to Vegas! He and Amanda are so personable and it was so amazing to have both of them there for everything. The quality of work you get from A Contrast in Light is worth every cent and the best part is the price! I don't believe anyone else would have traveled like he did! A Contrast in Light Is truly one of a kind!

Amazingly professional work and exception quality pictures. Working with Brad was easy and he makes it all look effortless. He communicated regularly throughout the time before the wedding date. He let us know what to expect and repeatedly asked if there was anything he could do to help or make things easier for us. He and his wife captured amazing photos throughout the day and were so unobtrusive our guests barely even knew they were there! We were truly impressed and if we have another need for a photographer we certainly have to look no further.

Brad, with A Contrast in Light, created the most beautiful wedding video for my husband and I. I had a very specific vision on what I wanted and he went above and beyond that. He was with us the entire day. Captured all of the best moments however he was very subtle and we barely ever noticed he was there, which is nice because the last thing you want is a bright camera light in your face all day. It is only one week later and we have the finished product at home and ready to watch whenever we would like. The video was the best thing we spend money on for the wedding.

Brad has done many events that I have been honored to work along side of him. He literally has put together so many amazing and wonderful videos and photos. He is affordable and looking for every possible possibility of capturing a wonderful moment. He has done wonderful work with family photos, maternity shots, wedding photos, retirement videos, GBR, wedding videography....it goes on and on. He really has a gift and doesn't charge the outrageous prices that most people in this profession do.

At first I was extremely hesitant about having a videographer but the instant I met Brad I changed my mind. He was not only extremely curtious and professional but also wonderful to be around. He was with the bridal party the entire time searching for the perfect shot, at times risking his own safety! Brad was with us from the start to the end capturing each and every special moment. We look forward to using his skills in the future and would encourage anyone looking to select him!

We were blessed to have Brad at our wedding on July 7 as a videographer. He stayed with us literally from 8am in the morning to 11pm at night capturing each moment of the day from getting ready to leaving in the limo. At one point we were leaving the church and someone in our bridal party said take a look up there. Brad was on top of his car in the pouring rain filming our cars leaving the church!!!! He has wonderful creative ideas that you just wouldn't think of on your own. He is professional and friendly and most of all wants to capture each special moment for you. The day went by so quickly that I am excited to see all the parts I missed! Brad also specializes in photography and although he wasn't our photography I have seen his work which is also exceptional.
