Star City Creations is an established company in Roanoke that has been offering wedding films for more than 20 years. They are a husband and wife team that sometimes has assistants. They offer very basic wedding video services and are one of the few that still uses older video camera technology rather than DSLR.

They offer DVD, multicamera setups and basic video editing. They are also the best value if the price is your number one priority. They only offer doc edits, traditional style video.

This is a national website that hire locals to sub out their contracts. We don’t know much about them other than what they offer on the website. Since the videographers vary from wedding to wedding, you’re rolling the dice on whom you get and the quality.

Toast Wedding Films (national)                                                                                    1.6/5 Rating

Toast is a national website that also subs out their wedding films to local wedding videographer companies. They are paid a flat rate and do the filming work, sending the video to them to edit. We don’t know much about them other than what they offer on the website. Since the videographers vary from wedding to wedding, you’re rolling the dice on whom you get and the quality.

HD Video: Yes
4K Video: No

DVD: No              
Gimbal: Maybe
Slider Technology: Maybe
Doc Edit: No

What we love about them:  Not much honestly.
What we don’t like about them: Not local to the Roanoke market and unknown hires from wedding season to wedding season.  Priced for a national market, not Roanoke.

Michaels Video is based right outside Roanoke and the company has been in the wedding films for more than 30 years.

This is a small, newer company to the market place. Abbey does both wedding video and wedding films and is geared to the mid-range and higher end bridal market.
