Here are some examples of our testimonials:
We were recommended Raptor Filmz by a family member who is part of a photography club to film and make our wedding DVD and we have to say that we are SO GLAD we went with Raptor Filmz! Chris met with us before the big day and got to know exactly what we were looking to capture in our wedding DVD. Chris and Margo then arrived at our wedding and filmed for 12 whole hours - a service that was greatly appreciated as they managed to capture our whole day and even get the drunk dancing towards the end of the night!! Our DVD is an hour and 40 mins long with loads of great moments captured and is something we will keep watching year on year! Thank you again Chris and Margo, I will be recommending you to all our family and friends :) Xx - Becca Hamilton 5*
Just watched our Wedding Video for the first time... So emotional watching it back! Loved the music! You captured everything perfectly! After initially not going to book a videographer I know now we would have regretted that decision if we didn't! Booking with you was a last minute decision and one of the best decisions we made when it came to the wedding. Polite and friendly and just got on with capturing everything, especially the moments we missed! Would definitely recommend! Thank you Chris. Mr & Mrs Close x 5*
I received a fantastic film of my big day from Raptor Filmz, the quality was second to none and could not of asked for more. I recommend this really professional company and again it was a truly brilliant experience. - Dale Kirkpatrick 5*

The Full Wedding of Ruth & Alastair
Having your wedding filmed can be a big responsibility. You want to make sure you hire someone who you can trust, is discrete and can do a good job from start to finish. That's why we've added this section, so you can get a clearer idea of what the finished DVD - not just the highlights - looks like. We filmed the wedding of Ruth & Alastair at the George Hotel in Edinburgh in December 2013 and they have kindly allowed us to show you each of the chapters of their big day.
Ruth & Alastair asked me to go along to film them getting ready. This part is often the hardest to do because you don't want to miss any of the good parts but you also don't want to be filming people at inappropriate times when they might feel uncomfortable. Balance is key.
The weather was sunny and mild for a Christmas wedding which meant we got lots of great shots outside and on the roof as well as with the Christmas decorations.
The First Dance
What we like to do is to overlay footage of the first dance with black and white 'flashbacks' of the cutting of the cake. If you have a live band playing we tend to use the audio from them, but if your first dance is to a DJ then we'll use your chosen song.
This was our first attempt at doing a Marryoke, which went pretty well I think. Note singing deer :)
The George Hotel is a fabulous venue, the only trouble is the main hall can be a little dark for our cameras. At some points we had to add gain to brighten things up and this can make the film seem a little snowy. During the signing of the register we've started adding black and white 'flashbacks' of the highlights of the ceremony.
We usually put a lapel mic on the best man and table mics down in front of anyone else who is speaking (usually the father of the bride and the groom), but these can be quite sensitive to smartphone interference, so please be sure to have them switched to airplane mode.
All the best parts of the day edited to your favourite song and uploaded to be shared online in full HD! In some cases the copyright holders of the song do not allow the viewing of the video on mobile devices, which is a shame, as in this case with Elbow's 'A Day Like This' so in that case we change the music to something else of a similar length and style.
The Christmas fair was going full blast in nearby St Andrews Square, so we all went along to see if we could get some nice shots exclusive to this time of year. The photographer and I weren't disappointed, and I think the bride and groom enjoyed themselves too!
