Ken was a pleasure to with with. His professionalism, knowledge of our Ethnic needs and quick responses took that stressful part of wedding planning away. We did a 3 day event at The Grand at Moon Palace in Cancun- Ken was punctual and made each day super fun and made everyone laugh around him. You won’t regret hiring him for your wedding!

Ken organized a call with us months before our wedding, and set us totally at ease. He was prompt, arrived with everything needed for our big day, and produced us the most wonderful memory we have from our wedding. We will treasure the video for years to come. Thank you Ken! - (in Akumal)

I approached ken about our wedding video and he was incredible from the outset! He was so friendly, super excited about shooting our wedding and made so many suggestions that we hadn’t even thought of! Ken and Tatiana were so lovely to work with on the day and so professional they were discrete and made everyone feel at ease all day. Ken included some amazing personal interviews with guests at the end of our wedding video which was a fab surprise when we watched it back! I cannot recommend Barefoot Wedding Films highly enough, the cost for the package is more than worth the result! Thankyou so much Ken!

Barefoot Wedding Films is a great team!! One the biggest problem when trying to do a destination wedding is trying to find a videographer who will provide a great service!! Aside from the obvious of what great service is I have to include that Ken is someone who communicates, work efficiently, and most importantly loved his integrity! After reading so many reviews I knew he was perfect!! They were very attentive, understanding and despite all the chaos (some rain during reception) they were able to do an amazing job! I loved the finished product!!

We got married in Cancun. Our day was amazing and it was made super easy and went smoothly thanks to help of our awesome wedding videographer. On the lead up to our wedding if we had any questions he was very fast at responding. When we watched the highlights of our wedding we thought they were fantastic and when we received our feature film, it was amazing, such a great job, we absolutely love our wedding films! We couldn't of asked for it to be any better. I would highly recommend Barefoot Wedding Films!

While there are many options in Riviera Maya/Cancun, our wedding planner put us in contact with Ken and we couldn't have been happier! We decided to take a trip to Playa del Carmen to visit our vendors beforehand and Ken was so easy-going and light that we felt our wedding day would be just as breezy. We wanted someone to capture the spontaneous moments and we couldn't have been more pleased all around with the efforts, time, and incentives they gave us. Our guests were completely stunned with the drone shots. The video was edited very quickly. We received the finals in a very short time. We love it! Not only were they our videographers but they also became our friends. Thanks for giving us a great film of our most special day!!

My husband and I had our destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. When it came down to choosing our videographer I started to panic. How was I suppose to choose a videographer in Mexico if I was in Miami, Florida?! I did my research and I came across Ken. From the moment I contacted him, I knew right away we needed him for our wedding. They put me at ease and assured me everything would turn out beautiful. The day of my wedding they arrived early and they guided me through the whole process. No matter how stressed I was Ken always managed to put a huge smile on my face. When I watched my video for the first time it was like I was getting married all over again. The footage that was captured was amazing and he paid so much attention to every little detail. Everything we missed during our wedding due to us being too busy was captured by Ken. I could watch our video over and over and never get tired of it. Thank you so much Ken for being amazing at what you do!!
Catherine & Manual Arredondo
Ken was amazing to work with! Super professional and fun. I'm normally pretty high strung about big events especially thought I would be about my wedding day but the vendors I chose made everything absolutely perfect!! I cannot express how happy I was and how perfectly the day went. It makes such a huge difference when you hire personable people to work with on your big day! Thanks for being so happy and bubbly and making our day perfect!!

Barefoot Wedding Films did so amazing on my wedding video. They are so nice and very professional. I loved everything about my video. They did such a great job of capturing our special day. That day was so windy outside and in the video you could not even tell or hear any of the wind in the video...I was very impressed! They have amazing skills and are very good at what they do! I am very pleased and so so happy that my parents pushed me into getting a video. At first I was not going to get the video for my wedding but then I decided to kind of last minute. It was well worth it...it captured so many moments that the pictures didn't and I'm glad that in my future I could look back at the special moments and fun times I had with my family in this video! I am definitely one happy bride with how everything turned out! Thank you Ken Everything was perfect and I could not be happier!
Veronica & Oscar Rodriguez
They are so amazing I don't know where to begin. Ken is sooooooo nice and amazing and easy to work with. I had an orthodox Jewish wedding which he had never done before. We explained everything to him and he captured all of the things we asked and more! The video is AMAZING!!!
Marissa & Ben Jacobson
We are from the UK and got married at Moon Palace, Cancun.
Ken and his assistant arrived, very damp, at Moon Palace on my very rainy wedding day like a ray of sunshine! Ken's infectious laughter and super friendly personality told me immediately we were going to get along!
During the planning, my husband and I could really not decide whether we wanted to have a video on the wedding day and wow am I pleased we did! We only had a select few people able to travel with us to Mexico and that was what swung it, we needed to be able to show people what actually happened that day.
Ken got our wedding highlight video to us really quickly after the wedding and we shared it with friends and family on Facebook. The video is an amazing reminder of our beautiful wedding day, but also, Ken has managed to capture the essence of the day perfectly and really give those people that weren't able to come with us, an insight to how much fun we had from start of the day getting ready, to everyone going crazy dancing at the reception. I still burst into happy tears every time I see the moment my Dad and I turn the corner to walk down the aisle, so beautiful and such a special moment captured perfectly!
We have had so many amazing compliments about our video - it has reduced friends of friends, people we don't even know, to tears!!
I would HIGHLY recommend these guys and if in any doubt as to whether or not to have a video, DO IT, you will not regret it.
Ali & Johnny Harrison
I honestly was on the fence about video services during planning our wedding. It seemed so expensive. After much consideration we were introduced to Ken. He quickly helped us realize the importance of video and offered us a great price, one that we could actually afford. Fast forward to our wedding day... Ken MADE the day. I was beyond stressed, my kids were not cooperating and my bridal party was, well spacey to say the least. Ken was able to capture some magical moments through he craziness of the day. He was so kind and patient with us. If there was one thing I could change... I would have had them stay longer. Out of all the money we spent on our destination wedding I feel like our video service was worth every penny and the best money spent!!! My husband became ill with unexpected cancer after our wedding and Ken has remained in contact often checking in to see how he is doing. It speaks volumes for the type of business he represents. I cry every time we watch our video and could not have imagined not having it. The quality of professionalism form the first moment of speaking to Ken all the way to now has surpassed any other vendor. The video itself is perfect, from the bottom of my heart I thank Ken for everything! Watching our video we are able to re-live our wedding day for years and generations to come!

We were married at a villa in Playacar in a very informal, nontraditional ceremony with a handful of friends, beers on the beach, and a pizza/pool party at the villa. Ken was happy to see it through. He was always immediately responsive to our emails. When the day arrived, it flowed smoothly at first, but went awry at the nail salon, where we finished a full hour later than expected. After a journey involving a crazed taxi ride and a Mexican police escort, I arrived at the villa nearly 40 minutes late for my own wedding! Several people, including Ken and his assistant, had been waiting more than half an hour for my arrival. I was in a mad panic, but the first face to greet me at the door was Ken, and he was wearing the most calming, sincere smile. He told me not to worry about anything, that this party wouldn’t start without me, and to take my time. His calming effect on me likely saved our entire wedding day. Over the next couple of hours, while my hair and make-up were being done, Ken would come and go from my line of sight. His cheerfulness and love for his job made him so easy to work with. When Ken emailed me the link to our highlight show, he had captured my husband’s vows so beautifully that they made me cry (again). When we received and watched our full-length video, we agreed that Ken captured every bit of love from that day, and with the informal style we wanted. From the clarity of the teardrops streaming across my face, to the unplanned stumbles that we and our sweet Pastor made during the ceremony, to the boozy beach dancing and beer pong session, our video is a truly genuine depiction of our wedding day. We plan on watching this treasure every year on our anniversary as part of our celebration, and we could not have asked for anyone better to illustrate it as beautifully and honestly as Ken has. Thank you so much to Ken! Your skill, as well as your remarkable kindness will be remembered for at least two lifetimes.

Firstly, having a destination wedding was a wonderful idea that my wife and I would never change. However, having a destination wedding definitely limits the number of guests that can attend. With that said, being able 'capture' our special day was very important to us!
With many different vendors offering services, deals and packages, it was a bit overwhelming to say the least. Ken took the time to answer all questions, share all feedback and opinions. There was never a moment I felt pressured to commit with this company. They truly wanted to film, and left the decision up to me.
Although Ken and his second shooter were always there, they were definitely not felt/seen. They were, videographer ninjas in my opinion. There were angles and shots I didn't even realize were being recorded.
After the wedding, Ken was always in touch and communicating about timeline, sending preview clips, and confirming if we wanted to include or exclude some clips. We felt part of the entire process, and it was much appreciated. Thank you to Ken and his team for letting us see our dream wedding day for many years to come!
Nicole & Joann Lee
Words can’t express the gratefulness my husband and I have for Ken and his crew. Our perfect day went by so fast, but now we have the most exceptional video to relive the most special moments from that day for the rest of our lives. Their creativity, talent, hard work, humor and professionalism went above and beyond our expectations. We could not have imagined a more amazing masterpiece. Thank you for capturing and being a part of our special day. I could have written a novel about how great you are!
Ariel & Fitim Kadrijaj
We can't say enough good things about Ken! He was amazing to work with from start to finish. Always responded to our emails right away and answered every question we had. The wedding day went so smooth and it truly showed in our AMAZING video!
Once again, thank you Ken so much for helping to make our day so great
Kaitlyn & Matt Bailey
We could not be happier with the video Ken did for us on our special day! Honestly, from initial contact via e-mail right through to delivery of the finished product, it was a breeze and Ken was so professional & prompt...not to mention he's a very friendly and fun-loving guy! As a fellow Canuck, I felt totally at ease with putting my trust in his services, and I'm so glad we did.
The short highlight video was great and we were able to easily share it with our family & friends who couldn't make it down for the actual wedding. But the pièce de résistance was the feature length video that captured everything from getting ready, the ceremony, reception and dancing...and all the stuff we missed in between, with the business/stress of the day! I keep telling everyone "thank goodness I have a video, because I barely remember the day!'.
My husband is a professional photographer/videographer himself, and he was quite happy with the beautiful results, so that speaks volumes. I appreciated his advice/input, and like I said, he was so easy to work with...and didn't charge us an arm and a leg like many of the others in the area do! (Honestly, we were quoted double his price by a few other videographers in the Playa/Cancun area!). Don't waste your time and money on the resort-recommended videographers/photographers...go with Ken!
Leanne & Scott Clouthier
Ken was wonderful to work with. He was on time, extremely helpful in the chaos of bride and bridesmaids all getting ready, and provided us with a wonderful memory. He even volunteered to take some pictures for us when our photographer was late, which was a very nice gesture and fitting for his very kind personality. The highlight video that he made for us was amazing and we cherish all those moments he captured so beautifully. In the end, if you want to ensure an amazing videographer and a wonderful video that you will enjoy watching over and over again, you can trust Ken!
