Testimonials from brides and family of weddings covered by Action Video Service


Action Video Service is incredible. From the first day my wife and I met Chuck he has been a warm, open, caring individual. He made us feel like we weren’t just another client to him but that he had a personal investment into us and our big day. Working in the wedding industry myself I can say how rare this really is. Generally, the people who produce top quality work are burned out from doing the same thing over and over, losing that spark and enthusiasm they had when they started. Chuck is that one in a million professional with all the experience and expertise you want but also the enthusiasm of somebody who still loves doing their job. 

The video was amazing! We originally thought we didn’t have the money for a videographer and would be just fine with the pictures people took. Wow, we could not have been more wrong!

The pictures we have of our wedding day are great, but they can’t come close to truly capturing the emotions from the day (plus vows, toasts, music etc.) Besides getting all the special moments, Chuck took the extra time to interview each of us. Having our thoughts recorded so we can always remember how we truly felt is irreplaceable.  

We cannot thank Chuck enough for not only providing an amazing video but also for hearing our concern on budget and taking the time to find a price that worked for us, allowing us to have this incredible keepsake from our big day. There is no doubt that I will be calling Chuck to capture any other life event for me and my family in the future!

Words could not possibly express the absolute joy that Chuck McClurg has brought to my family with our wedding video. It was absolutely beautiful! Chuck was professional, thorough, experienced, spontaneous and so helpful throughout our daughter's wedding start to finish. Chuck even came to our rehearsal at our Venue so that he may get a better feel for things and be prepared for the next day While pondering the decision on who to hire, I then watched one of his wedding videos at www.actionvideoserviceil.com ... it brought me to tears and I was sold! Besides the dress 🙂 Chuck was the best decision that we made in regards to my daughter's wedding. we were really anxious about getting the video, as this is not a day that can be re-captured, Chuck captured it better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Chuck for being the absolute best, and providing us with a wonderful video for our family to treasure for years You are forevermore the Beyer Family Videographer!!

Ashley and Scott - May 2019



Chuck and his team did a phenomenal job on our wedding video! He treated my husband and I with such respect and gave us wonderful recommendations and tips throughout the process. I specifically loved he comments he got from family and friends but especially our grandparents. The comments, and video of them will be something that we cherish forever. Between the arrival, first look, venue decor, ceremony, speeches, and dancing- he covered every single piece of the night that we could have hoped for. The video turned out beyond what we hoped for- and is such a wonderful memory that we will cherish forever. I would recommend Action Video Service for anyone looking for an amazing video to remember their special day.

Chuck was the best videographer I could of dreamed up for my wedding day ! The qualities he has as a person make him perfect for this job. His compassion, encouraging

Megan Elizabeth Accardo - June 2019



Chuck made the whole process flawless and amazing. From the first time we met Chuck at a bridal expo he made me feel like the most important bride, and wedding to him. He was simply amazing and so kind.

When we met to go over the details of the wedding, and how the day would work, it was like talking to a member of my family that wanted us to have the best wedding video possible.

The day of the wedding was perfect, Chuck captured all of the best moments, and had the most positive encouraging comments. When I feared I would not be able to talk due to jitters Chuck had a way with words that helped ease the tension and got the best clips of me talking about how special my husband was to my daughter and I. The feelings and emotions Chuck captured are perfect examples of how we felt that day, and a beautiful tribute we will always have for each other.

Chuck was with us the whole day and captured everything, there were moments I forgot Chuck was even there he was like a ninja getting footage without making a huge presence. We added on to our package guest comments and watching those comments I laughed, I cried, I had the biggest smile on my face. The well wishes he captured from the most perfect people.

Chuck is the best videographer I could have dreamed up for my wedding day. The qualities he has as a person make him perfect for this job his compassion, encouraging ways and kindness is exactly what every bride and groom needs on their wedding day.

Action Video Service did an amazing job making sure everything was perfect for capturing my wedding day and Chuck delivered exactly what he promised. From making sure all of my vendors ok'd the drone during the ceremony, to getting to know myself and my parents, to putting the video together, everything was perfect. The video he put together is one of mine and my husbands most cherished mementos from the wedding. I love how personal he made it and that it wasn't just a video with a song. He took the time to overlay the perfect audio from the night and captured the essence of the wedding and the personalities of everyone who attended. From start to finish, working with Action Video Service was an easy, stress free experience, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, personable, and professional videographer!

Lidia Nadine - 2016



We began to do a search for a videographer and found Action Video Service. We were not sure what to expect because we had never done this before but Chuck turned out to be the answer to our prayers. We could not have been more pleased with his exceptional work. Chuck went above and beyond our wildest dreams. We felt as though he became one of the family and treated my Grandson’s wedding as a personal honor to cover. There is no question as to who we would call or recommend if the occasion arises for a videographer. Chuck McClurg, you would definitely be the man.

Jeff & Pat Hurst - 2017



Chuck is a fantastic videographer, and was a pleasure to have at our wedding! Chuck went the extra mile at every stage of our wedding, starting when he took the time to attend our rehearsal so that we could all be better-prepared for the real deal. That level of thoughtful consideration and attention to detail extended into every facet of Chuck’s process the next day. He not only captured great footage of our ceremony and reception, but he made sure to make our lives as easy as possible, expressed genuine happiness for the bride and me, and even seemed to have a lot of fun! The video turned out beautifully, and now my wife and I have a memory that we will cherish forever. We just celebrated our one year anniversary and had the best time reliving the highlights of our wedding day! We can’t recommend Chuck and his services enough- his talent and enthusiasm will speak for itself!

Ryan & Josselyn - 2017



We had the pleasure of working with Chuck on our wedding day. He and his assistant were very professional, kind, and attentive and they had great suggestions. Our wedding video turned out absolutely beautiful. My husband and I and our families will be enjoying it for many years to come.

Margaryta Bondarenko - 2017



We used Action Video Service to video my son’s wedding with 2 cameras and a drone. Chuck was wonderful to work with. He met all of our needs and requests. He was sensitive of the private moments and amazing at socializing with guests to make them comfortable enough to give testimonies to the bride and groom. Chuck met with us around our schedule and completed the video in a timely manner. The video and audio was amazing. It provided all the special moments to treasure, and the fun as the evening progressed. The drone added a very unique view of the ceremony that made It even better.

Thank you Action Video Service! for capturing the day that our family will treasure forever.

Alisa Ellegood - 2018



My husband Javier and I had our wedding on September 1, 2018.

I cannot thank him enough for all the work he and Andrea did to make our wedding video. I recommend his service 100%.

Action Video Service did an amazing job with our wedding video! Every request that I made was honored. Our video captured all of the best parts of our day and I love watching it. Highly recommend having the drone footage as well, it added such a cool element to our video!

Jessica Doyle - 2018



I just showed my mother, brother, and sister our wedding video for the first time today. Each time Chris and I watch our wedding video, we get to relive our wedding day and I find myself tearing up each time. Your videography was absolutely amazing how you took our most treasured moments and fine detail such as Chris' grandma dancing in the chair to music and made an incredible video. I want to thank you again so much for your amazing work and video that I will forever be able to watch and remember my wedding day. I hope other brides are as fortunate as I was to have you apart of their wedding day!

Chloe Hoeflich - 2017



My husband and I loved working with Chuck and Action Video Service! From the very first meeting, Chuck was so kind and covered every detail we would want to get captured on camera. On the day of our wedding, he made things so easy for my husband at the venue prior to the ceremony beginning and throughout the night he took the best shots! When we got our wedding video we were in awe with how beautiful it was, the sound and graphics quality, and all the moments that were captured. We also loved how we got copies of the toasts and first dances as well. We would highly recommend Chuck and Action Video Service for your wedding! After it's all over, you will want to be able to relive every moment and notice all the small details you don't have time to notice the day of. Chuck and Action video helped us capture those memories for the rest of our lives.
