Loyd is based in California and we flew him to Cancun to film our wedding on 11/22/11 at the Gran Caribe Real. I think it may be his first mention on this site - but I can't speak more postive words about him!
Itâ€™s hard to describe how lucky we feel to have had Loyd document our wedding. After we came back from Mexico, we were on such a high from the wedding events and loved looking through our family & friends facebook pictures, but then Loyd sent us our highlight reel, which allowed all of us to relive everything in such a powerful & beautiful way. Weâ€™re still looking forward to getting our full length film, but weâ€™ve already watched the highlight reel countless times. We initially didnâ€™t even think a videographer was necessary but after realizing how truly amazing Loydâ€™s work is, weâ€™re so happy that we decided.
Hereâ€™s a link to his page: http://www.loydcalomayfilms.com/
Loyd was easy to communicate with before heading down to Mexico. Even though we lived in different time zones (us from NY/NJ while he is from CA), he always responded promptly to our e-mails.
Loyd is super talented and we were confident is what he was going to do. We didnâ€™t give him any direction aside from telling him the times of all the events. Our first interaction with Loyd was at our welcome gathering â€“ we didnâ€™t even formally meet with him yet, and he was already shooting (which we did agree on in our contract), but he only landed hours before. Afterwards we found him shooting at the beach, and after watching our highlight reel, it was apparent that he was all over the place taking all sorts of awesome shots.
One last point â€“ Loyd was referred to us from John Lauren Photography. They have worked together in the past and formed such a great team to document our wedding. Being able to spend time with John, Lauren & Loyd aside from when they were filming/shooting made us realize why their work is so outstanding â€“ the three of them are genuinely great people, the kind of people you want to be friends with. They are caring, generous, funny and really love what they do and I would highly recommend them to everyone.
