The Best Videographers In KC posted 9/11/2015
I normally don't write reviews, but after our recent experience with the Luxe Studios I had to. Simply put, they provide the best videography you can get in the Kansas City area, hands down. My wife and I consider ourselves so lucky to have found them for our wedding for a number of reasons. First, they will work harder than anyone else. From spending time meeting with us to figure out exactly what we wanted, to working a 17 hour day on our wedding day so that they wouldn't miss a moment, to working around the clock after our wedding in order to get us our wedding video in under a week (which is unheard of), we could not have asked anything more from them. Second, they provide the most quality product. The equipment they have is extremely professional and they have such a great eye for creative shots, that when combined you receive a product that is worthy of being on the big screen. Third, they are great people. Both Daniel and Mendell Dean (the owners and videographers) are so easy to work with and have fantastic attitudes. They are receptive to your ideas and work with you to make your video personal and special.
Before finding the Luxe Studios, my wife and I had poured through dozens of wedding videos from a number of videographers, and we ultimately decided to go with the Luxe Studios. If we had to do it all again, we would go with them every time. They provided us with exactly the video we were looking for. We loved working with them and are so impressed with their work and how fast they got it to us! The videos we received from them captured timeless memories we will have for the rest of our lives. Daniel and Mendell with the Luxe Studios run an outstanding business and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a videographer.
We chose Luxe Studios to shoot our wedding video for us on November 5th after we saw the work they did for a friend's wedding the year prior. We can not say enough wonderful things about Daniel and Mendell Dean! Not only were they super professional on the day of, but they had been in contact from the moment I even expressed interest in booking with them. Daniel reached out to me very early on and we had a thorough discussion regarding our vision and what we were looking for in a videographer. He made sure that he would be able to provide exactly what we were looking for. We chose to forego a wedding planner, but he was able to give great recommendations regarding the flow of the evening and scheduling out our day, throughout our entire year of planning. He was very transparent and always available if I wanted to get into contact with him. Our video came back to us, and it was better than I even imagined. It was stunning, and we were in awe with the way they were able to edit and piece together something so amazing! We received so many compliments from friends and family on the quality of the video. You can tell they have an eye for this and are incredibly passionate about what they do, and it certainly shows in their beautiful work! I will recommend Daniel and Mendell Dean and Luxe Studios to anyone in the future!
We chose Luxe Studios did an amazing job on our video ! Mendell is a personal friend of mine I'm so happy I met her because if not I wouldn't gotten a memorable gift to look back on from my special day. I watch my video every day! They Make a great team , easy to work with and flexible ! We want to get married again so we have another video ! Recommend to everyone !
Originally I couldn't decide whether we needed a video for our wedding or not... I am SO glad we did!!! Husband and wife team, Daniel and Mendell, are the sweetest people you've ever met and worked so hard on our day to make our video personal and interesting to watch! They also worked with our price range and made it possible for us to have this priceless reminder of our wedding day!
Both Daniel and his second shooter Mendel were very professional and pleasant to work with throughout he entire process! They met with us a couple months before the big day and went over everything. They listened and promised to create what we dreamed for our day while providing feedback and ideas whenever asked. Then on the wedding day, they were timely and flexible to whatever was thrown their way. With such a stressful day and sometimes vendors adding to that, Luxe only eased our minds and were exceptional from start to finish! 5 out of 5 without a doubt!
Both Our experience with Luxe Studios was great! The team was extremely attentive, professional and flexible. They really make the day all about both of you. They got to know both of us and really tailored the experience to our needs. My wife and I are thrilled with the photos and videos from our wedding. I would highly recommend Luxe Studios for anyone in the Midwest who wants to capture their special day.
There aren't enough words to describe just how amazing Luxe Studios is. Not only were they amazing to work with from start to finish, their work is out of this world. They captured every moment of our wedding day just perfectly. Look no further, Daniel and his team are the absolute best in the business. Thank you Daniel for giving us the opportunity to relive our wedding day over and over again. It's perfect!
My wife and I were beyond impressed with the work of Luxe Studios. Daniel and his staff are all amazing to work with and are completely invested in providing the highest quality work. They pay attention to detail and the videos they create speak for themselves. Daniel is clearly dedicated and invested to his work. My wife and I can both confidently say that we have absolutely no regrets and that our wedding and engagement videos exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Luxe Studios for any videography needs.

What our Clients have to say
I cannot say enough good things about Daniel, Mendell and Luxe Studios. They were wonderful And easy to work with through out the entire process. We had a few hiccups with another vender and they kept everything running smooth. Our video far exceeded our expectations. We were on the fence on whether or not we wanted to hire a videographer and now this is our favorite thing we have to remember our wedding by. We would highly recommend Luxe, it was the best decision we made regarding our wedding!
Awesome videographers! posted 10/13/2014
I recently used Luxe Studios for my wedding in September, as well as for a fun little video that we showed at our rehearsal dinner. We have gotten SO many compliments on both videos. Daniel and Mendell are so easygoing and fun to work with, we loved them from the first time we met them. They really personalized our videos and made it a great experience for us! We highly considered not having a videographer in attempts to stay on budget, but saw Luxe Studios' work on their website and knew we had to use them, and I'm so glad we did! My advice for any bride would be to spend the extra money for a good videographer because they are able to catch moments that you may have missed on your big day! I hardly even knew they were there during the festivities because they blended in and were so great at setting up in spots that were not distracting or in the way, and got really great shots of everything. Daniel and Mendell gave us something we will cherish forever and I am so happy we went with Luxe Studios for this very important piece of our day. Don't let their low price fool you because they are amazing and they made everything perfect for us. We highly recommend them! They are awesome!
Daniel and Mendell were so great to work with, I can't really imagine having had anyone else with us during our wedding process. We were really impressed with Luxe Studios from our very first meeting with Daniel. We could tell he was very knowledge, professional, and consistent right away but what made our experience even better was how friendly, caring, and flexible they both were. I haven't heard of too many weddings that don't have some hiccups on the big day, and our wedding was no different, but Daniel and Mendell kept our timeline moving and kept us from having to feel the stress of the last minute challenges. We got our wedding video back faster than we expected and the Feature Film is beautiful! The music, highlights, and feel of the film captured all of the special moments and details of our day. The video really isn't just capturing and reliving the day but it's capturing how special our relationship is each time we watch it.
I can't say enough good things about Mendell, Daniel and Luxe Studios. From the very first contact, Mendell blew me away. Not only did she respond quickly but she spoke to you like a friend. They really got to the heart of what we were looking for and how to best serve us on our wedding day. Having someone talented and who we trusted was the most important factor in deciding who we wanted to capture our special day, especially because we were planning 2 states away. I am amazed at the work they did! I'm 100% positive our crew did not give some of the best footage but they made our day look perfect. I would recommend Luxe Studios to any bride who wants memories of a lifetime without any stress. Thank you guys!!
I simply cannot say enough good things about Daniel and Mendell at Luxe Studios, they are the best of the best! I was a bride on a budget and I went back on forth on whether or not I "needed" or "wanted" a cinematography to capture our special day. After meeting with the them and seeing their work, I immediately knew this was something I couldn't live without. After seeing our highlight video, it confirmed this decision. There are many decisions to make when planning a wedding, and coming from experience- this is a team and option you don't want to overlook. Huge thanks to Daniel and Mendell for capturing all of our so very special moments live. We will forever cherish these videos!
I do not have a vocabulary proficient enough to explain how much I appreciated and was completely impressed by Daniel and his team! I searched high and low and across state lines to find a videographer that met my expectations. I was already very particular and scrutinizing every detail since I work in the advertising industry, but Daniel blew us away not only with his talented executions of our videos, but also with how wonderful he was to work with. Of all the vendors we used for our wedding, Luxe Studios easily made the top 3. Daniel was personable, flexible, knowledgable, trustworthy, accommodating and very professional... all the things you want in your vendors. Not to mention he was by far the most organized and efficient! He way over delivered and we were so enamored with how everything turned out.
I would recommend Luxe Studios again and again and again. You cannot go wrong here. Book your day with Luxe Studios and enjoy reliving your day for years to come!
Daniel is such a joy to have around! Our videos were exactly how we had hoped they would be in capturing our whimsical day! Only regret, not hiring him to stay until the party ended. A lot of really awesome stuff happened at our reception that wasn't captured on camera. If you're a group that likes to have a good time, extend your hours and keep him around ;)
Luxe Studios are who you want at your wedding! They truly do amazing work! My husband and I are so happy they were able to capture our love on our big day!! AMAZING PEOPLE to work with!!!
