In a weird way, my dominant impression of McElroy Weddings was that of them not being there. The planning beforehand was quick and painless and during the event itself, I didn't notice them once after they checked in to say hello. When I got my wedding trailer, however, I was absolutely mindblown by what a great job they had done. We shared it with family and friends and were excited to see the complete video. It was fantastic to see all the moments I had missed while getting ready, or because I was on the other side of the room, and McElroy did a fantastic job of catching everything.
The dancing in particular was important to us, and the quality of the videography was amazingly high, even with quick dips and spins, and even when the dance floor got crowded. They put the video together amazingly quickly and the DVDs were in my mailbox before I knew it. I was deeply impressed by how little they needed from me to make something I will treasure forever.

During one of our pre-wedding meetings Ben promised to be a fly on the wall and he sure was! Most people that attended our wedding did not even know we had a videographer until they saw our video on YouTube. My husband and I are beyond thrilled that we hired McElroy films to make our wedding video. The trailer is beyond amazing and the entire video is fantstic! Their editing and style makes the video fun to watch and is a great way to re-live the best day of our lives. It was worth every penny! Many thanks to Ben and his team at Mc Elroy films.

When my now husband and I got engaged-we both agreed we did not care to hire a videographer. After many discussions with both of our mothers-we decided to do it. I researched many videographers and found McElroy.
Wow is all I can say. It really is so true that you miss so much on your wedding day-little facial expressions from grandparents, to crazy aunts dancing to seeing you and your Dad walk up the aisle. I am soo happy that we did this. Ben was our videographer-he was so professional and did an amazing job-I can not say enough wonderful things about him. i would totally recommend them capture your wedding day.

A videographer was a very last minute add for us. We thought that if we spent a lot of money on a really good photograher, then why would we need video? Well, less than a month before the wedding, we changed our mind and boy are we glad that we did. Because of the fact that they were available at such short notice, they were very good about negotiating a great rate. After seeing the finished product, I would have paid 3 times as much. We got our trailer within 3-4 weeks and the full video about 2 weeks later. They really did a beautiful job. If you are questioning getting a video at all, just do it, you won't regret the decision. Pictures can only tell part of the story.

McElroy was such a pleasure to work with at my December 22, 2012 wedding! The quality of their work is impeccable! I am receiving so many incredible compliments about my wedding DVD and beautiful trailer! I highly recommend them for anyone's special day!

We were beyond happy with the service and quality that McElroy provided for our wedding day and video. We received timely and helpful feedback from the first phone conversation through the wedding day and even with the ordering of additional videos. Every step in the preparation for our wedding day was handling professionally and with our concerns in mind. I was hesitant at first to be videoed all day long but the team at McElroy was very accommodating. We had a chance to speak with our videographer, Patrik, a few days before the wedding to go over the last minute details. Patrik assured us that we would not feel smothered by the camera and he was right -- we barely noticed him throughout the day! In addition to Patrik doing a great job on the day of the wedding, we were so excited for the great work McElroy did with the wedding trailer and video. We couldn't have asked for a better way to capture our wedding day. We cant wait to recommend McElroy to our friends!

I highly recommend McElroy films! I had heard nothing but good things about them when I was searching for a videographer for my wedding. After researching them and watching videos on their website I knew they were who I wanted for our special day. I contacted Ben at McElroy films and heard back from him immediately and a short while later Ruth followed up. I worked with Ruth throughout the entire process and she is a pleasure to work with, super helpful and so sweet!. She responded almost immediately to any questions I may have had. I found everyone to be extremely organized which put me at ease. A few days before my wedding I was contacted by the videographer, Mike Wallace. I can't say enough about Mike, he was amazing. I even made a few last minute changes to our schedule and he was more then willing to adjust. Last week I received a link for the trailer, I was blown away, Mike did an absolutely amazing job! So when I received the DVD in the mail yesterday I had to watch immediately. I sat their in tears (happy tears) as I was brought back to that day. Mike captured ever single detail. I have to say this was by far the best wedding video I have every seen. The quality of the video and editing was amazing. I can't thank everyone at McElroy films enough!

We were unsure as so whether we wanted a videographer at the wedding, since we were having a photographer. We are really happy that we decided to go for it and have both a trailer and dvd that we will love to have for generations to come.
We were very pleased with our experience with McElroy Weddings. I chatted with the videographer the week before the wedding and felt confident that he knew what we wanted. The two videographers that were with us at the wedding were able to capture everything, but were discreet and did not distract from any of the events of the wedding. We were happy with the turnaround time for the dvd- while we would have loved to get the trailer sooner, there is understandably a lot of footage to go through!
We would absolutely recommend using McElroy Weddings!

I am thrilled with the service McElroy Weddings provided my husband and me. From the moment we called, the staff was so courteous and attentive, helping us choose the appropriate package and determining the style of video we wanted. I highly reccomend hiring two videographers, our video had so much dimension with two perspectives. People that couldn't attend our wedding viewed our trailer and said they felt like they were actually there and could feel the excitement! Their services helped us capture the day and I know we can continually watch this video throughout the years and relive the moments over and over again.

I had them at my destination wedding. The video turned out great. They worked very well with my photograghers at the wedding.

We contracted McElroy videos for three of our seven Hindu/American wedding weekend and they were amazing! The accommodated all our requests and showed up on time for all our events...we were so pleased by their patience before and after the weddings to get them our songs and once we got our (many) videos, we were sooooo happy with the beautiful way they captured our ceremonies!!!!

I can't say enough about Ben and his team at McElroy. My requests were somewhat unusual for them in that I really wanted them to take creative license. They are the pros -- I didn't want to tell them what to do. All that I asked was that they deliver a product that wasn't the standard 'wedding video' and boy did they come through! I have exactly what I wanted: a gorgeous mini-movie that tells the story of our day in 20 minutes. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

I could not ask for anything more! They did an absolute fabulous job filming my wedding. They put together an awesome trailer on youtube for everyone to see. I was absolutely satisfied. They are such professionals. I talked to Ruth on the phone and she is a sweetheart of a women. The 2 videographers were such nice people! Very happy

We hired McElroy for our wedding at the Four Seasons in Boston on June 9, 2012. I have to admit, at first we did not plan or want to hire a videographer. I was convinced by some friends that we wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to capture our wedding on video. After doing some research, I select McElroy b/c I thought they looked like they could give us good quality at a decent price. I have to say, we were extremely blown away by the final product. Our video looks so professional and the trailor is the BEST! I have compared our video with those of my friends who paid 3x as much and I think ours is way better! Ben was SUPER professional...and we hardly noticed he was even there!! I highly recommend you capture your wedding on video and hire McElroy! You will not be dissapointed...I promise!!!

My husband and I booked McElroy for our wedding this past May. Since our first conversation with them they were always professional and prompt with responses. Ruth is a pleasure to work with. Despite heavy traffic due to construction on the day of our wedding, Ben and Brittany still were able to get to the church on time to capture every moment of our ceremony to the last dance. The quality of the video is very good and we were able to see some moments of the day that we had missed. The video truly showcases what a wonderful time all of our guests had.

This by far was one of the best parts of our wedding. McElroy Weddings is an absolute MUST! As a long distance bride, my parents visited with Ben to finalize the details. He was very courteous and explained everything clearly. The information they went home with (and sample DVD) was awesome.
Ben called me the night before to confirm. He & his team were very punctual and professional. They blended in with the crowd & weren't in the way. They captured every moment perfectly from beginning to end.
Their features & camera tricks are amazing. He did not use ANY early 90's tricks like hearts, cartoons or weird captions. The HD made SUCH a difference, and I would HIGHLY recommend it if you can spare the costs.
The preview trailer was unbelievable! I was able to share it with friends & family across the world without a hitch. I cry every time I watch it, and many others said the same. The way he captured the wedding day was just incredible.
McElroy Weddings was a pleasure to work with. They had no problem with the music we selected, and gave us great examples.
The one and ONLY issue I had was the delay in getting the video. I was told 3 months, but because of a nasty storm & power loss for about a week, they were very much behind schedule. I received the preview trailer about 3 months later and the final DVD about 4.5 months after our wedding. I can't blame anyone but mother nature, but it would've been nice to receive an update about the process.
All in all, this was THE BEST way our wedding money was spent. I would recommend McElroy Weddings to anyone and everyone that wants a classy wedding DVD!

I knew that having a wedding videographer was very important to me. I interviewed several Boston companies, and McElroy delivered excellent quality with great value.
Ruth was great to communicate with throughout the whole process, and Patrik delivered superb videos! They were extremely busy after our October 2011 wedding, so we didn't see our trailer and extended versions until January, but we were very happy with the final product. The way they edited our videos painted a beautiful memory of our wedding day. I am STILL watching the raw footage videos- so happy we included those in our package! Patrik even stayed a half hour later than he was supposed to, due to the band/catering schedule running late, because I really wanted him to capture the cake cutting and bouquet toss. He was great all day- very respectful during the "getting ready" time (I kept telling him he could come in the room, then someone would have to get dressed so we had to close the door) and both shooters got absolutely beautiful footage of the grounds.
I wish they had been a bit more "behind the scenes" and out of view during the ceremony (I was looking right at the camera as I was walking down the aisle) but I understand with an outdoor ceremony, there was limited space for them to capture everything perfectly. I am very, very happy with everything from McElroy- they shipped out videos to us out of state and were understanding and respected our wishes about not using our videos or images on their website or for promotions. I just love our wedding video and I highly recommend them!

Ruth and everyone at McElroy was a pleasure to work with. From the hiring process to the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly. We didn't even know our videographer was there. He was not intrusive at all. He followed up to say congrats and that he got some great footage. You won't be disappointed if you hire McElroy!

I LOVED working with Ben!
Ruth Marvin was a joy to communicate with! She was flexible and responded to email quickly and diligently!
I didn't meet Ben until the week of the wedding - and I knew he would just be fun to have around which means so much!!
Their works speaks for itself and the value of the packages is tremendous! We ended up adding a second shooter last minute because we knew it would just make our video that much better. She was super sweet and great to have around, too! They were able to stay an extra hour at the last minute too, which was great!
