"I strongly recommend Chris Ryan for your video. He comes prepared and makes the entire process very relaxed and easy. He was professional, flexible, friendly and reliable. I can't make a stronger recommendation for any video service. He's a pro, and the finished product not only entertained us, but it was deeply moving for me and my family."
