We used Creative Imaginations Productions do to our wedding video back in September. Bill and Pat showed up right on time on wedding day and got to work. There were some issues w/ the venue and their staff that day that led to the schedule being off and rooms not available right away, but they improvised and did whatever it took to help get things going. That day we barely noticed they were there, yet they managed to capture so much great footage. It was great to have them be a "fly on the wall" and get all the video without us having to think about it. Afterwards, they really went the extra mile to make our video special. Bill requested our wedding slideshow as well as the professional pictures from the photographer to make it more personalized.Even more--he took our wedding theme, which was sci-fi/galaxy, and incorporated that into our video with really sci-fi intros, credits, and transitions. It was very unexpected for him to do all of this extra custom work, but so appreciated! The video was done right on time with the estimate we received. We received multiple copies. One was in a really nice case and the others is gorgeous personalized DVD cases--seriously, the packaging on the video was SO impressive. They are beautiful!On top of everything else, the price was extremely affordable.I would definitely recommend Creative Imaginations if you are looking for a wedding videographer.
Wow, working with Bill Brady at Creative Imaginations has been a joy. He did such a nice job video taping my band live. Very easy to work with and very reasonable prices. He pays attention to detail and listens to the customer. I would use Creative Imaginations again in a heart beat. He also has great communication and puts the desire of the customer first.
I want to first of all say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for doing our wedding video . It was an amazing day for us and you got right in there and performed your magic . Very professional and it means the world to us . We can treasure it forever . I will recommend you to everyone. Again thank you so much .

As the owner of a busy medical practice, I needed a fast, professional video of my office and in particular of a new surgery that we offer. Creative Imaginations (Bill Brady) was here on the spot and did not bother our patient flow as he followed our progress. He used a sophisticated multi camera, multi angle technique and edited the footage within days into a picture-in-picture product that showed the surgery as it was being performed and the patient/doctor interaction. It was a great experience at a great price.

Bill and his wife were absolutely awesome and some of the nicest people I have ever met. Everywhere you looked he and his cameras were there! I cannot wait to see the end result of our wedding video as I am sure he captured everything I have heard about and missed. I will highly recommend Bill to anyone I know looking for a videographer for any event!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Creative Imaginations Production for turning my daughter’s wedding day into beautifully crafted memories that will last a lifetime! Not only were you extremely accommodating, professional, and timely, but you were also fun to work with! The quality of the finished product is AMAZING! I would have no hesitation whatsoever in referring anyone – for weddings, or any other video project – to your company. Thank you again!

"Bill and Patty and their team did an AMAZING job capturing the love and happiness we felt on our wedding day. My husband and I are so appreciative to have this special keepsake to relive our day and share with our children. They really took the time to make sure that our whole family was covered so that we would always remember who was there to share that day with us. We were very happy with the different shots they were able to get and they were pretty unobtrusive so that when we watched our video and slideshow we were amazed at everything they caught! Thank you so much Bill and Patty for making this day so special and memorable for us!"

"Bill – I want to thank you on behalf of the band, Tripping Tarzan. You took one afternoon of fun and made it into a video/audio package we can use as a promotional tool, yet something we can also provide to our fan base for their enjoyment. The band had been talking about making a video for well over a year. When we started to look for someone who would meet our needs, we met with so many variables in terms of what we wanted, what we could afford, and the right personalities. But when we sat down with you and Pat, we knew we had found a team of professionals who would provide exactly what we were looking for. When the day came to record, we did not know what to expect or even what to do. You and Pat made it seem so easy and casual, but extremely professional at the same time. We just did our thing and played our music, and you did your thing, which was truly awesome at every angle. Following our day of recording, I was amazed at how quickly you were able to put together the beginning of our project. I thought it would take much longer, but you were in contact with us every step of the way and wanted to make sure what you were doing was what we were looking for. The finished project met with our amazement and approval, yet simple changes were not a problem either. Tripping Tarzan is a group of perfectionists, and we have found that you are as well, in that you completely understood our desires in adjusting small details. I am saying much more than I had planned. But what I want you to know is we will recommend you to any of our friends or professional colleagues who need someone friendly, professional and the best in the business. Should you have anyone who would like to discuss hiring you, we would be happy to speak with him or her. I know we will be returning the next time we need a video and that we have already recommended you to several people who have interest in exactly what you do. On behalf of Tripping Tarzan and all our fans, we want to thank you and Pat. You guys are the best."

"I had the pleasure of working with Bill Brady at Creative Imaginations Productions on producing videos of our band's live shows, and he did not disappoint. Since the videos were completed, we have seen an increase in the number of visits our Facebook Page is getting, as well as increased interest in having our band play at area venues. From start to finish, Bill walked me through each of his editing processes and asked specific questions to make sure we were getting the right special effects for various parts of our performances. Specifically, I enjoyed how he would follow up as he was producing the content to make sure it was delivering to and exceeding our needs. Not only would I recommend Bill Brady’s services to anyone needing videos produced or created, we will definitely be using him again. He also answered both technical and business/marketing questions I had, which I thought was awesome for him to be that comfortable with both sides of our business needs. His professionalism, his attention to detail, his creativity, and his advice was above and beyond what other videography companies offer. I wish I had known someone like Creative Imaginations Productions was out there a long time ago!"

"My son was recently married and Creative Imaginations Productions videotaped the occasion. I dreaded the process of acquiring a videographer to tape the occasion, but I have heard more than one bride express that they deeply regretted not having a video to capture their special day. Bill’s name was given to me by the photographer. We met to discuss what I had in mind and what I expected the outcome to be. He listened to my concerns and wishes for the evening of the reception. I was extremely happy with my decision to use his services. On the night of the reception, he was prepared, professional and on top of the quickly moving event. He captured the most precious and important moments, even a few I would have missed if Bill had not seized the opportunity. He edited the tapes and got them back to me promptly. I was impressed with his captions, creativity and technical skill on the finished product. The pictures and graphics on the jacket were outstanding! He truly did above and beyond what anyone else would have done. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I can’t imagine not having the tape to watch and enjoy for years to come."
Thanks, Jane Ballok,
"I had decided I wanted to incorporate visuals with my advertisements for my martial arts program. I contacted Bill Brady of Creative Imaginations with few ideas of what I wanted. My ideas were met with a sense of professionalism that opened a mode of conversation, which gave me a better idea of what options I had. Bill took some simple photographs and transformed that into a visual masterpiece. During the process he asked questions about what I wanted and shared ideas that demonstrated his eye for detail. I am very pleased with the finished product and continue to make referrals to Creative Imaginations solely because he was professional, receptive to my ideas and at a price I could afford."
"Bill did an exceptional job for our April 2nd wedding. He was prompt, creative, and thorough. He made it a point to be a part of each wedding event in order to accurately get the entire wedding experience, which makes for lasting memories. My husband and I were very pleased when we received the final copy of our wedding video just a week later! It was evident in the work Bill had done that he spent many hours perfecting the video. Our parents, immediate family, and wedding party were surprised and pleased that they all received a copy as well. It was also a wonderful gift to the family and friends that were unable to make our wedding. My husband and I wholly recommend Bill to videotape any special event or occasion. He did an unforgettable job!"
Thank You Bill! Hillary and Michael Miley,
"Love your web site. and thanks for the wonderful job you did for me at my wedding you guys are awesome. I recommend all those who need a Videographer to come to you..."

"We held a Baptism for our Granddaughter, My husband and I are Methodist Ministers. Mr. Brady filmed the entire church service, which also included a puppet skit. Several great things happened. The puppeteers did not speak loudly enough. Bill was able to bring the volume up to compensate for the difference. Also we had many active Great Grandchildren and Great nieces and nephews. Bill was not only catching the ceremony but he also caught some of the cherished antics of the children. This was a celebration of life and our family is full of life. Thanks Bill for the clear and creative music. We don’t need videos every day, but we will do business with you again. You did a wonderful job and we are very happy with the end product."

"We contacted Creative Imaginations Productions with an urgent need to have two visitor safety videos produced in a very short time period. Not being experienced in the production of video content, we felt we needed professional assistance to put together high quality visitor safety videos for two of our manufacturing facilities. Not only were they able to meet the tight time schedule, the work was completed very professionally and efficiently. Most importantly, the final outcome was high quality and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to anyone with similar needs."

"Creative Imaginations did an amazing job at recording our wedding. They took so much time and worked very hard to make sure that the entire day was completely captured. They really did go above and beyond and filmed our special day from beginning to the very end! It is something that we will be able to look back on for many years to come!"
Thank you again! I will definitely recommend you to all of my friends and family!
"Thank you Bill & Patti Brady! Bill and my Dad, Fred Brace, were friends for decades. He and his wife did a video to honor our Dad at his memorial service. We have such a special keepsake for our kids and grandkids. The special touches that Creative Imaginations Production added were really special to our family! We not only have the memorial service but they also incorporated photos and music as well!!!"
Thanks for the many blessings!!!
