WE LOVED working with Paola. The process with planning our wedding video was so smooth, easy and fun. Paola is an amazing human. You have to have her there on your wedding day. She captured gorgeous footage, and we are so happy with our wedding videos (highlight + feature film). She really personally gets to know you, and in the end she got us SO well.
Our wedding video is a GEM because of her hard work and fantastic eye for incredible footage opportunities. She is incredibly talented, and our final edit turned out amazing. She is also affordable which was a diamond in the rough.
It’s important to work with an artist themselves because it can get dicey with a big company that just assigns someone from the company to you and you have no idea what their work will be like. When you’re looking at her work, she’s done it herself so you know exactly what you are getting.
A MUST HAVE for your wedding day! She is so flexible and accommodating too. She truly wants you to have the best wedding and to capture amazing footage during it!
She amazed me by already having back up plans in case it rained, and when we were talking about locations, she knew the most efficient ways to get to each one because being on a party bus going through Chicago can be challenging. Paola is the BEST, so work with her!
Paola and her husband are awesome at what they do! We absolutely love both of our videos!
We got married 2.5 hours outside of Chicago and Paola was so accommodating to travel to our venue.
We met before the wedding and she is so nice and professional. She checked in with us about a month before, too.
The day of, she and her husband arrived on time and went right to work. We are so happy with their work and how they captured our wedding day!
Let me begin by saying I got married TWO days ago.
Paola was (and is) the ABSOLUTE best. She put me at ease and made sure that every moment was captured and that I felt comfortable with everything. Her attention to detail is absolutely breathtaking.
Thank you so much Paola for being there for me through out this whole process. I can’t wait to see the final product- I know it’s going to be the absolute best.
Paola was amazing to work with! She made us feel comfortable and helped our day run smooth.
The video was better than I could ever imagine! It allowed us to relive the best day of our lives and I could not thank her enough for it!
She captured our day so well! I highly recommend!!
It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Paola and her team at Vivid Photo and Video for any wedding or event! My husband and I worked with Paola and her team to provide photography and videography for our wedding during August 2017.
Paola was kind & flexible from the start, meeting us at a coffee shop in our neighborhood for an initial consultation. Upon meeting, we instantly felt at ease. She took time to learn about us as a couple and to our delight, worked with us to customize a package of photographers and videographers to fit our needs and budget. After seeing Paola’s work, we were thrilled to learn that she would be our primary photographer for our wedding. We found this to be a fabulous perk of working with a smaller boutique studio.
Paola and her team did an excellent job on the day of our wedding. They were all friendly and made our wedding party feel very comfortable. They did an amazing job capturing the important moments without being noticeable or “in the way.” Paola has a way about her that could put the most anxious bride at ease! She was always one step ahead with her quick thinking, suggesting creative and fun poses, as well as beautiful locations for our “first look” and group shots before the wedding. Several members of our wedding party, friends, and family mentioned how much they liked Paola and the energy that she brought to our event. We were also impressed to see her positive & creative energy last all day and night!
Last but certainly not least, Paola and her team take beautiful photos and create lovely videos. They do an excellent job of using light and focus to highlight important details within different shots. They also pieced together our highlight video in a meaningful way that told a story about our relationship and brought together different elements of our special day.
It was evident that Paola understood who we were as a couple and captured our day perfectly. As we watched our highlight video it almost felt as if she had read my mind! Every beautiful detail of our story can be told, remembered, and cherished for the rest of our lives. We have Paola and her team to thank for that.
Vivid Photo and Video did a wonderful job for our wedding! Paola is amazing. She met with us before the big day to discuss everything we wanted. She had some great ideas and was always there to answer any questions I had as an anxious bride.
Our wedding happened to be on the coldest October 4th since 1936.. and of course we had an outdoor ceremony/photos. I don’t think we could have pulled it off without her.
She did a perfect job of directing us In a timely manner so we all didn’t freeze! Many of our guests commented on how nice she was and how great she was doing. We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! Thank you for the memories!
Wow!! I can’t say enough about Paola and Matt! They were so great to work with from beginning to end.
Paola was sure to get lots of details about what we wanted and we couldn’t be happier with the photos and video! I actually cried when I watched the video.
We can’t thank you guys enough for being part of our day and capturing the beautiful memories for us!
Highly recommend Vivid to anyone!
Such a FANTASTIC experience!
Paola is this beautiful breath of fresh air that will capture your very essence. She will bring the best out of you and has a brilliant eye for detail.
Our photos are stunning and she manages to keep up with the madness of your wedding day with such grace.
I look back at my photos and wonder how in the world she caught some shots…as if she were in two places at once!
I cannot say enough great things!! I have found OUR photographer for all things, to continue capturing us throughout life.
