Recommendations

I booked Steve less than two days before my shoot and I could tell he sensed that I was a bit stressed out over the phone when I first called him, but he did a great job of making me feel at ease and reassuring me that everything will turn out fine.. and you betchya it did! My interviewees looked amazing with the set up / lights Steve brought to the table. And not only that, Steve is very friendly, kind and professional. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the near future!

Tina

I can attest that being able to properly set up a beautifully lit interview is not an easy job...but if you that's what you need...Steve Rippe is your man! Steve is a premiere videographer, he is one of the most professional and talented videographers I've ever worked with. Steve is a True "Pro" from start to finish, his camera work is fantastic and he's "got the eye" for beautiful lighting!" Steve's equipment is new and high tech. If you are in the St. Louis area or surrounding area... Steve is your guy! HIRE him, you won't be disappointed! - Mary Pelloni
