Our Story

Our Story/Our Mission

Thanks for checking us out, we appreciate you visiting. Alliance Video Productions LLC was formed in 1994 and we have filmed over 2,000 weddings. Our mission has always been to create a masterpiece that you will cherish forever. We take the responsibility in producing your wedding video very seriously and have a lot of fun along the way.

We have a very dedicated team of incredibly talented videographers, cinematographers, and editors (not all of which are pictured below). We stay current with all the latest equipment and technology, so the final results will blow you away. We are passionate in helping you remember the best day of your life.

Most people reading this have never been married or hired a company to film their wedding day. I understand, we will take the stress out of your decision. When you request information, we will promptly get back to you and answer all of questions and help in this important step. If you don’t know all of the questions to ask, no worries, we will guide you. We’ll help make this process very enjoyable, promise!

When you call us, or possibly evaluate other video companies (and we suggest you do), may I suggest you ask these questions. I’m sure you will discover the difference.

  1. Who will be filming my wedding?
  2. How much experience do they have?
  3. Can I see their work?
  4. Will I only receive a highlight and the unedited footage, or is my wedding completely edited?
  5. How will you plan and prepare for our important day, so the video tells our unique story? (A lot of people can make videos; it’s understanding the importance of planning that makes the difference)

We would be glad to answer all of these questions and whatever else comes to mind. You deserve to know, and you deserve the best! We can take as much time, or as little, as you wish. We can meet in person, email or speak over the phone, whatever works best for you. You can find other answers to commonly asked questions on our FAQ page. After looking things over, follow this link to get the ball rolling.

“ The Value! The Service! We spoke to and researched several companies. Alliance offered more hours of coverage, and more features for the same or less money than other companies. We also really liked dealing with Tom! We spoke with him over the phone to set everything up, never meeting him until the day of the wedding. Tom was thorough and very nice to deal with.”

“After watching highlight videos from other weddings and seeing how much better the quality was than other companies we looked at we knew we had to go with Alliance. Talking to Tom really sealed our decision because he was so nice and so excited about our event.”

  • I believe that you become what you think about.

  • I love creating memorable moments and seeing other people’s stories come alive.
  • I believe in burning calories at the gym in the morning, so I can spend them on good food in the evening.
