May 27 Wedding VIdeo Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"When we initially began wedding planning we were on the fence about having a videographer. We didn't want to spend a lot of money and did not know if it would be worth it. Now three weeks out from our wedding, it was the best decision we made. I Do Video by Leo was recommended to us from another couple. Leo was quick to respond and answered all our questions. He had us working with Phil Hosticka. Leo sent us some of his preview videos and my husband and I loved what we saw. A couple weeks before the wedding we had a phone meeting with Phil. I could tell right away that our personalities meshed well and we were very excited to work with him. Phil arrived on time to the venue and did an incredible job capturing the special moments of our day. A little over a week after our wedding we received our wedding preview video. It was AMAZING. We have received many compliments about how well the video was put together and how beautiful it is. We have watched it many times and we are still in awe of how wonderful it is. We are so happy that we decided to go with I Do Video by Leo and we cannot wait to see how Phil puts together our full video!"
August 29 Wedding Video Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"After countless hours of research for a videographer that fit both our style and our budget, we finally came across I Do Video by Leo and we never looked back. Leo was not available for our wedding day but he works with several other great videographers and matches you with someone based on what you are looking for. He matched us with Phil Hosticka who did the most incredible job! After our initial phone call with Phil to discuss details our wedding details, we knew we were going to really like working with him. He was extremely friendly and personable and we had a great time with him on our wedding day. He was easily one of the best vendors we had worked with. Our highlight video turned out amazing and he was able to capture all of the emotion and fun of the day in a 10 minute video. We have received so many compliments on it already and we are so excited to watch our DVD once it arrives. I highly recommend I Do Video by Leo and Phil Hosticka!" -Colleen

November 1 Wedding Video Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I just wanted to touch base with you really quick about Phil Hosticka, who was the videographer for our wedding on November 1, 2014. I have to tell you, he was incredible! From the moment he walked in the door, he was so friendly, fun, and put everyone at ease. Everyone loved him and was very happy to work with him. The video he put together for us was wonderful. The highlight reel is honestly one of the best I have ever seen. I really love his style and we were beyond pleased. I’ve had so many people comment about what a great job he did and how much they loved the video. Many said it was the best they had ever seen as well!" -Suzy P.

September 5 Wedding Video Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Phil was great! He was amazing to work with. He was funny and personable. He really made everyone feel comfortable. He had some really good ideas for filming. He also stayed later than he was contracted for, because the ceremony started late and pictures ran later, in order to film our first dance and part of the reception. Even my photographer, who is a friend of mine, commented on how easy he was to work with. Our video turned out great! I'm so happy with how everything turned out and I'm glad that I have those memories to look back on." - Colleen H.
