What Our Clients Are Saying
I came across byDesign Films as I was researching cinematographers for my wedding last September in downtown LA. There was something about their style and quality that immediately captured my interest and I knew I wanted them to document the most important day of my life. Zack Gutin initially responded to my inquiry with details on pricing and availability. He was a pleasure to work with; very thorough, responsive, kind, and professional. He walked my husband and I through every step of the way and spent a lot of time with us via phone and email answering any questions we had. Our project manager later jumped in to handle coordination for the wedding and post wedding. Communicating with her throughout the process was so easy and she always made sure to keep us in the loop about everything. I cannot say enough about this company as a whole!
Our wedding day went very smoothly. The shooters arrived on time, immediately set up their equipment, and got right to work. We hardly even noticed them throughout the day as they just did what they were supposed to do. Both the highlight video and full feature film were delivered to us in a timely manner. Our project manager was exceptional, and made sure that our feedback was directly relayed to the editor, and captured in the final product.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience working with byDesign Films. It was evident from the first encounter that this team not only works hard but truly strives to ensure customer satisfaction. Our expectations were far exceeded and now we are able to look back and forever cherish the most special day of our lives. I highly recommend byDesign Films to all brides out there looking to hire one of the best cinematographers in the business! They are an extremely professional, dedicated, and trustworthy team who produce beautiful wedding films. Thank you to everyone from byDesign Films for all your hard work!
The surprise of a lifetime was made possible by the excellent team at byDesign Films. My wife and I previously agreed not to hire a videographer to save money, but on Christmas morning she woke up to two beautiful films of our wedding day.
From the very beginning, byDesign films was extremely accommodating with this unique request. Brittany was great at presenting the options and explaining every process along the way. Our videographers were very talented and professional. They embraced the surprise and operated under the disguise of photography students. I still can’t believe how they captured every moment without drawing any attention.
As for the films: They look like Hollywood movies! Every aspect of these films was top notch. From the music, to the action shots, byDesign Films certainly delivered.
Choosing byDesign Films was truly one of the best decisions we made – there are simply no words to describe how happy we are with our video. The experience we had working with them was truly exceptional. They so perfectly captured the fun, joy, and love from our wedding day!
The entire byDesign Films team was so enjoyable to work with – from the initial emails and phone conversations with Brittany, to the day of our wedding, to the final footage. Everything was so organized and professional. After receiving our highlight film, I shared the link on my Facebook so all of our guests would be able to see the video as well. I received comments, texts, and calls from not only our wedding guests, but a number of other individuals remarking on how beautiful the film turned out, and how unexpectedly emotional they became while watching it.
My sister posted the video on her Facebook page as well, and that weekend she had strangers at her college approaching her and telling her that they had seen the video and were in tears! Every time I get that “I wish we could do our wedding again” feeling, I re-watch our video. Then, I am completely transported back to the happiest day of our lives.
I am so grateful for the byDesign Films team and would highly recommend them to any couple in search of a gorgeous and authentic wedding film.
We worked with Sherri Booth as our project manager for our wedding film. When we first got the film we wanted some edits done to it to really capture our favorite moments. She was very nice about the back and forth and made sure our film was exactly what we wanted! Thank you so much! We love our film and couldn’t be happier!
Holy schnikes… my husband and I are blown away, and we’ve only seen our highlight video. You can tell how much work byDesign Films put into our video – and they don’t even know us. It’s amazing to have hired a company that takes so much pride in what they do.
We planned a destination wedding and I knew nothing about videographers, or any in the area. We stumbled upon byDesign Films on The Knot app, read reviews, and watched their videos. Their videos stood out more to us than anything else we looked at.
Communication with our project manager, Brittany, was super easy. She was always quick to reply and answer any questions. We were speechless when watching our highlight video. We felt like it captured us so perfectly. I couldn’t feel more blessed that we stumbled upon byDesign Films. I would 100% recommend them to anyone who asked. Thank you for everything.
A big “Thank You” to the byDesign Films team! On our wedding day, they did an awesome job capturing our day and were a pleasure to work with. The production team did an awesome job editing our film especially with my specific requests! Brittany did an amazing job at communicating all my requests. I’m so happy, I just got our film in the mail and played it on our TV for my husband – and he cried. The composition was spectacular! Thank you all again – for being anything but ordinary!

When selecting a videographer, there were so many companies that we looked through. What captured our attention about byDesign Films is the unique style and artistic editing that they have to offer. They exceeded our every expectation, captured all of the important moments and candids from our day. They have been very quick to respond and accommodating to any requests. Both of the videographers who shot my wedding went above and beyond and made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. I could not be more thrilled with how both our highlight & 30-minute film turned out. I definitely recommend adding their drone footage if it is in your budget. It is worth every cent! Thanks again byDesign Films, there is no other company I would have preferred to capture our day!

Absolutely love them! They are such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them. They covered my engagement ceremony beautifully. When I was looking for a videographer, I was very nervous and kept going back and forth on whether I should get one or not. But when I came in contact with the byDesign Films staff I felt at ease. They answered all my questions and concerns. Their patience was truly appreciated. At the time of my engagement, the videographers were such a pleasure to have. You can definitely tell they have a true passion for what they do. Can never thank you guys enough for capturing the most beautiful moments of our lives.
As an event manager, I am extremely detail-oriented and to put it bluntly, know exactly what I want and not easily impressed. That said, I was blown away by the people and the quality of work from byDesign! We hired them to film our wedding and it was easily one of the best decisions we made. Our project manager was very sweet and responsive. She answered all of our questions right away and relayed my extensive notes to our videographers. Our cinematographers were courteous, fun, and made sure that we got all the shots that I outlined in our pre-event briefing. They also worked well with our photographer, taking turns so both of them got the shots that they wanted. Our Highlight Film far exceeded my expectations. I had a really hard time picking out things I wanted to be changed, which is a true testament to how good they are. The videographers and editor really listened to what we wanted and ensured that the video reflected our style. I highly recommend byDesign for your own wedding!
ByDesign went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding video. From start to finish, the process was flawless. Brittany was amazing to work with! She was so friendly and always very responsive. The videographers on the day of our wedding were easy going and fun. Our photographer commented on how awesome they were as well! The end product captured our magical day, each and every moment. I would 100% recommend byDesign to capture anyone’s wedding day!
byDesign Films was AMAZING to work with leading up to, during and after the wedding! They were extremely responsive and helpful with all the questions we had throughout the process. So easy to work with and made sure we got the shots we wanted for our wedding video! Even our videographer got my attention that we needed to get the speeches going in order for him to capture the footage as we were running behind with the timeline – which is something my day-of coordinator didn’t even catch! We love our video and highly recommend working with byDesign for any video needs!
