"Buerhaus Design has been providing videography services for my non-profit organization for years now, as well as for our annual awards gala and several high-profile conferences. They provide video coverage of our half-day mini-conferences that we hold once a quarter. Matt's work onsite has been outstanding. He and his colleagues are set up quickly, coverage is great, and they produce a quality finished product. Buerhaus Design has been very responsive to our changing needs, and we recommend them highly for corporate events and conferences."
Pam Klahr- Harford County Chamber of Commerce CEO 2014-present (www.harfordchamber.org)
“Buerhaus Design Video-Editing Life was a real find for the Chamber. Matt and his wife Julia were a wonderful team at two of our major events… The Annual Dinner and Harford Awards. They professionally and unobtrusively work the crowd and get some of the best footage of real people interacting and connecting. They truly bring our events to life for those who can’t be there.”
Cindy (reviewing our services for her daughter's Mitzvah- as posted on 'EventWire')
"Matt was wonderful to work with and he perfectly captured every important moment of our daughter's special day. We loved the videos he created- he truly told a story with the images and clips he used. We love watching the video and reliving the day! Matt was responsive to our needs, and communicated quickly and clearly. At the event he blended into the background unobtrusively and was very professional. He created a highlight video for us which we were able to view and share on-line with family and friends. He also created a 2 hour video for us with all of the important moments of the day. He requested song preferences from our daughter, so she had some input into the video itself. We received dvd's for this as well as links to view and share the video on-line. In addition, he sent us a dvd with all of the extra footage he chose not to use in the video, so we still had those moments preserved. We were thrilled with his work and will be using him again for our next event! "
Sue Hart (reviewing our memorial services)
"Our family will cherish the video as a profound keepsake and archive of a very important event in our family. More importantly, Editing Life Videography has provided a means for ongoing closure at the loss of the patriarch of our family! You have no idea the blessing your work extends to those dealing with the death of a loved one. We look forward to passing along the link to friends and colleagues who were unable to attend.
Although a somber line of work as compared to the joy of weddings, there is a very real niche for your services to the grieving, because everything happening is a blur to loved ones who are in the throes of processing a recent loss. It is invaluable to have a video recording, as it provides an ongoing opportunity for those who survive their loved one, to "revisit" that special time...later, when they perhaps can embrace and savor more fully, its healing power and comfort, when one's heart and mind are in a different place in the continuum of the grieving process.
I hope the hidden blessing in your helping us in our time of need will be the growth of your business in ways you never thought possible! God promises He has so much more in store for us than we could ever ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20) if we but believe. And you were the answer to a prayer for us at such an emotional time, willing to come to our rescue with our unusual request. There is reward in God's economy and I think of you in Galatians 6:9-10 and Proverbs 11:24-25...two scriptures I hope you seek out as they will bless and refresh you.
As a recipient of your talents, your idea is wonderful to have an online form listing basic details most families desire, as people in that situation are not capable of telling the "must have" shots because, very often, they are caught in sudden and unexpected loss. At that point, they need to be "taken care of" and not have to bother "thinking about it".
In closing, my best to you Matt! Your finished product can only be surpassed by your kindness and compassion in how you treat your customer! Feel free to use anything in this communique that might be helpful to you and do not hesitate to use my name or call on me if you need a reference from a satisfied customer.
