Hand Crafted Wedding Films | Cincinnati Wedding Videography
We are a small company that does about 25 weddings per year. It is one of the things I love most about what I do. We get to know each couple and their story then we let it unfold during the wedding day.
What we offer?
At your wedding our main concern is capturing your story. We want to create the best film possible. That’s why we don’t make it complicated with multiple packages and levels of coverage, we only offer one package -the best of what we have. That means capturing all the events that make your day unique from all the rest. The investment is $3900. So, drop us a line and let’s chat – via the phone, Skype or over coffee!
We’re booking for 2014 & 2015
WHY WE ARE LOVED….
Kelly – Hilton Head ☆☆☆☆☆
All I can say is BOOK STUDIO 213 FILMS NOW…oh and get the package with the Aerial camera! I used Studio 213 for our destination wedding in Hilton Head. In planning our wedding, I initially didn’t think we needed a videographer but then I met David and saw his work and was blown away. Hiring David and making a video a part of our wedding was hands down the best decision we made during the entire process. David and his team helped take the stress out of the day for us but more than added to the fun. They are extremely creative and talented with what they do and I personally think they are the best in the area. Do hire a videographer and make sure that videographer is David and the Studio 213 Films crew.

I am so happy to share my experience with Studio 213 Films!! We started a search for a videographer that could “tell a story”… and hands down, after MUCH searching, we had no disagreement that David’s films told a story that we were glued to, even though we didn’t know the brides and grooms on his website.We met with David so that he and the Sammie and Alex could get to know each other, and immediately felt the easy sincere way that is, David! David was enthusiastic about our special day, and went out of his way to survey the venues for opportunities and any possible problems. I had complete faith in him, and could not be happier with the results of our wedding video! David has a gift for capturing the emotion and heart of a wedding, and it’s bride and groom. what an amazing thing to sit down to view our video, and hear the vows spoken, and soak in the moments that we weren’t even aware of.. the moments they stole away to drink in the day, the he caught on film in such a beautiful way, that it seems they didn’t even know he was there. They shed tears and had many spontaneous hugs of happiness when they watched their video for the first time! They left our house on a cloud, and wrote us when they got home, thanking us for having David at their wedding! That is what makes a happy mother and father of the bride! AFter you have spent all of the money, and time and creativity, and the day has come and gone, this is the magical way you can go back to that day, and relive it! I can’t express how grateful we are to David, for taking our daughter and son-in-law’s fairytale snowy wedding day, and saving it for us with artistry and sensitivity! View their trailer on his website and you will see what I mean! Thank you David for caring so much about a day that was so important to us, and that we never want to forget… and now we don’t have to!! Thankyou for capturing all of the special details, and the fun and the romance! it’s beautiful!
Samantha – Murren, Switzerland ☆☆☆☆☆
Oh where to begin….David was absolutely AMAZING!!! First of all, he traveled with my husband and I all the way to Switzerland to film our ceremony for our family. I believe he said yes before I even finished asking him the question if he would come! His enthusiasm, excitement, creativity, easy going personality and overall good attitude made our wedding experience very pleasant. And the video that he created…WOW!!! I am a photographer myself and I was so taken away by his creativity and ability! To be able to have those moments recorded to show our family, kids and grandkids…priceless! I can’t wait to hire Dave to create a small film for our family one day.
I would recommend him a hundred times over again!!!

Annie – Cincinnati, OH ☆☆☆☆☆
David was awesome to work with from the very first contact. He always is quick with responses, and very professional. We were on the fence about having a videographer, and we decided to have one at the last minute, and luckily David was still available. He was able to work us into his schedule, and accommodate our budget as well. Both he and his assistant were prompt and professional on the wedding day. As for the video, we couldn’t be more pleased. David captured all the most important moments, and we are so glad we decided to book him for our day! It was the best decision we made, and now we have a beautiful, classic, wedding film to share with family and enjoy for years to come. I would absolutely recommend him to everyone!
Jay – Dayton, OH ☆☆☆☆☆
Best advice I ever got from a friend was 1) get a videographer because the wedding day flies by and 2) hire David / Studio 213 Films. In hind sight, my friend couldn’t have been more right. My wife and I will cherish the memories captured in video as much if not more than the ones in still photography forever. David and his team were unbelievable. Professional, overtly qualified, super easy to work with, and somehow managed to stay out of the way but still capture every single moment, and to top that off they were competing for space with our photographer (Carmen from Blink of an Eye, also phenomenal). Ask me if if I could do it all over again, hiring Studio 213, and I would in a heart beat. No contest.
Angela – Dayton, OH ☆☆☆☆☆
Initially, I was somewhat “iffy” on having a wedding videographer. I wasn’t sure if I could make it work with our budget and really nothing I had seen in the Dayton area was clicking with what I was looking for. Until I found Studio 213 films. I saw their work and knew I had to have them. It was one of the best decisions I have made.
Studio 213 Films is amazing. They have gone above and beyond my expectations in every way and their enthusiasm for what they do is incredible. David and his assistant Gary spent the whole day with us and captured some truly priceless moments. The video they put together couldn’t be more perfect. It’s professional, high quality, entertaining, and just captures your attention! Its true when people say your wedding day flies by and feels a bit like a whirlwind. But thankfully, I have this video that highlights our day perfectly and takes us back right into the moment.
Erik – Chicago, IL ☆☆☆☆☆
David’s skills are absolutely breathtaking and the finished product left me speechless. He completely nailed it! The highlight video looks like it could’ve been done by some big-time Hollywood production company. We definitely made the right choice for something as important and timeless as our wedding video. Studio 213 Films rocks!!

We are excited to announce that we are the first in the area to incorporate aerial flight into our wedding films. We won’t be buzzing your guest by any means but this is a great way to view the wedding location and will be especially wonderful for destination weddings. Here are a few clips from Kelly and Todd’s Hilton Head Wedding this past weekend.
