“Here & Vow Studio are not only professional, dependable artists, they are some of the most talented vendors I have ever worked with. Their on site presence is calm, patient and professional, you almost forget they are there capturing your day. I was so happy with the results of my video, and I can highly recommend Here & Vow Studio.” - Laine Ogilvie, Wedding Planner at Memory Laine Events
"Mehdi was the videographer for our wedding this past August on Granville Island. He first joined me, my good friends, and my family at my parents' house where he filmed some amazing and very meaningful moments. Mehdi was by our sides, but never in the way, and documented the most memorable and important moments throughout our day. He stayed long after our photographer left to capture the dancing, bouquet toss, and garter removal. We were so blessed to have Mehdi on board for our wedding day. He captured the richest, most important moments and put together a wedding video that had us all in tears. His gentle, giving, skilled, and creative approach are all reasons why I would recommend him to any of my friends that are looking for a videographer, and why I was SO overjoyed that we hired him for our special day." - Advah & Josh
“Mehdi and Alica were a pleasure to work with. I could not be happier with the result, with both the posed pictures and the candid ones!” - Tia MacLachlan
From the moment I received my first email from Mehdi, I knew we had made the right choice. He was relaxed, flexible, and most importantly confident in his abilities to capture our wedding. On the big day, he was such a dream to work with, somehow catching all the important moments (which basically meant being in 10 places at once) all while making anyone he was shooting feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We just received the final edited video and we couldn't be happier. Thank you, Mehdi & team! - Mia + Jay
"Mehdi is an incredible photographer. He was able to capture the interaction between us to perfection. He knows about the details, and he knows about the light. He and his assistant made us feel at ease during the shooting, they were creative, and we really had fun. The pictures are amazing, very elegant, but so personnal. Thank you Mehdi for taking your work to heart - we would definitely hire you again anytime!" -Aude Marceau
“We were blown away with the work Here & Vow did for our wedding. Mehdi and Alica were extremely professional and a joy to work along side with. We received our video highlight in the timeline provided and we were beyond thrilled with the outcome. We will forever be grateful for the hard work they put in so we could have a long last memory.” - Amanda Ross
"Mehdi photographed our engagement in Vancouver in December 2014. He is an amazing artist that is able to bring every moment to life and make everything vibrant. He took time and effort to make every single picture perfect, both when he was taking it and during editing and it showed in the pictures we received (which were more than we asked for). Mehdi comes up with creative shots and really made our engagement feel special, even when we look at the pictures now, the whole thing comes to life. I am very grateful to Mehdi and wouldn't hesitate to use him again for any event. We can't wait to see what he does for our wedding!" - Aly & Zahra
