Pure Devotion Wedding Photography and Videography Client Feedbacks:
We give our highest recommendation to Pure Devotion! They were outstanding! Eric was very responsive by email and phone and SO thoughtful in getting to know us and making a video that reflected our style! He and Connie drove a long way to meet with my partner and me. They asked about how we met, what music we like, what we value, what style we like. It was so fun meeting with them. They are both very personable, warm and engaging.
On the day of the event, Eric was joined by Jeff, who was also super sweet. They were fantastic! They had this way of being in all the right places at the right time and capturing the important moments on film but never getting in the way or being distracting. We loved all their angles and artistic styling (like shifting the focus from foreground to background and vice versa in certain shots). They are definitely pros! They also used the drone which gave the video a lovely cinematic feel and was just so fun! The highlight video moved us to tears and we watched it about 10+ times in the first day. It captured so many of our favorite moments from our wedding day and was edited together so beautifully. The music was spot on, and so many friends and family have said that the video is very "us." :) Thank you so much, Eric and team! We can't thank you enough! We look forward to viewing the raw footage, which they said they will send us shortly. Yay!
Eric is fantastic!!!! His professionalism and patience is beyond any photographer out there! We booked Eric for our pre-wedding photo session and was very pleased with his work. I am a very detail oriented person (aka picky and a perfectionist); therefore, I have many requests when it come to our photoshoot. Eric was very patience with me and goes above and beyond what we asked for. He retouched our photos several times to ensure the result is what we've envisioned. He made time and meet with us whenever we needed him too. I have worked with 2 other photographers before working with Eric and I have to say, he is "purely devoted" to his passion as a photographers. There are photographer who prioritized money over passion but Eric is definitely different. You can see his passion through his work ethic and the final product that he delivered. We decided to book our upcoming wedding with Eric for these 3 main reasons: professionalism, work ethic, and skilled work. He is also very helpful and answered all our inquiries.
I will update more on his work once we received all our wedding photos =]
I am writing this and it is only day 2 after my wedding! I met Connie just 6-7 weeks before the wedding and wanted her to be the day of wedding coordinator, she helped me through out the weeks before the wedding with everything I needed. She was always willing to help even with last minute things. Connie also did the back drape and the up lights for my wedding which were amazing and I was so happy with, I just wish I had a picture at this time to go with my review but this is an early review. Beside her amazing job comes her calm personality that made me feel there is some one in control and I don't have to be nervous as a bride if anything goes wrong. Another super important thing to point out that her prices are very reasonable comparing to what others offered, weddings are expansive so this is what adds to my experience with Pure Devotion ladies Connie and Eunice. During my reception, they were always there trying to see if I needed anything, help with the dress and making sure everyone was happy, they solved issues that came up last minutes before I learn about them. I highly recommend Pure Devotion, I honesty don't think I would be able to do it without their help. Thank you so much for getting me the steamer and the box, all what was missing with no fees or anything!
Absolutely Amazing ! Eric and his team are incredible. They were sweating their asses off...running, bending, moving every step of the way to get the best shots...and they didn't miss a single moment. The final photos and videos were everything we hoped for, we have our wedding moments locked in forever with absolutely no complaints. AND he breaks down what he's doing, why he's doing things a certain way, and provides you so many options, never thought it was that detailed, but he made it simple and easy to understand...just so knowledgeable and professional, it was way to easy to just relax and trust his work....the man and his team deserve 10 stars, just thrilled to have had this experience. Pure Devotion, we'll be back...can't thank you enough.
Our Wedding took place mid Nov this year.
We went with Eric the brilliant photographer and his team for both pre-wedding photo session and wedding day photos. We also worked with Connie on outfits rental and decorations. Every encounter with them are warm and professional.
Eric and his team are very experienced wedding photographers and they are in the business to make every shot perfect. The finished photo results were also delivered to us on schedule, giving us ample time to make slide shows and order prints for displays. Connie was very patient through the entire dressing picking and fitting process. Everything she set up for us was gorgeous, from backdrop setting, to reception desk decor, to main table setting.
We are highly satisfied with both experiences and would recommend them to anyone. Can't wait to see the wedding day photo album which I am sure will be spectacular! Thanks again Eric & Connie for making our wedding so pretty and memorable.

Our wedding took place 3 months ago. Our wedding video turns out just stunning. Everyone loves it!! A lot of my friends said it was the best wedding video they've ever seen. It was short but content, very meaningful and touching.
Eric and his team did an excellent job! We didn't expect much as it was a once in a lifetime thing. You actually wouldn't know what to expect really. We just rolled the day and let his team do their job. Eric is very pleasant and professional to work with. His team did a great job capturing the moments. Our wedding day was highlighted in a short 4 minute clip, which is very easy to share and view.
The pricing was fair and reasonable. It's all worthwhile. We'll definitely come back in the future!

Thank you, Pure Devotion, for providing such great wedding services ( lighting, music, flowers, decorations, videography) and making our wedding day a beautiful occasion for us. Your work is truly beyond the expectations. After countless meetings and discussions we are more like family and friends. Our wedding day would not be complete and successful without your support and love. Looking forward to see our wedding video!!

I am a DIY type of person/bride. I would like to save money as money as possible. We all know how much planning a wedding cost and it's not cheap. I was planning to do my own flowers/centerpieces for our wedding but later on realized that I just don't have the time to do everything. I consulted Connie about my floral ideas. I told her exactly what I wanted and my budget. I have a very expensive taste but Connie was so kind to work with my budget and deliver what I really wanted.
On our wedding day, Connie made my vision into a reality! I was in total awe of how beautiful our ceremony isle and centerpieces looked! It was absolutely beyond my expectations. She really designed everything the way I wanted it to be and made our wedding looked so elegant and perfect!
Lasty, I cannot thank Jessica enough (my day of wedding coordinator) for doing such an amazing job for coordinating the whole set-up of our wedding!
Pure devotion Team did such an amazing job with our floral decorations and wedding coordination. You guys are simply amazing! Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding absolutely perfect!

I was looking for a photo booth to be a part of my daughter's 1st birthday party. I've been to many weddings with a photo booth and thought the kids would enjoy it at the birthday party. I looked at pricing for many wedding vendors and they were all out of my budget. My friend recommended that I inquire with Pure Devotion. Their price was very reasonable and so I decided to hire them.
We rented a rec hall. When time came to decorating for the party, I was told that we can't tape anything on the walls. WTH?!? My friend made a banner and everything! Pure Devotion was kind enough to let us use their back drop to hang the birthday banner. So glad that they were so equipped!
Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the photo booth with lots of props. The booth was automated; photos were great quality and printed quickly. Eric also sent me a link to download digital copies for myself! Super professional people who are easy to work it.

They did my Photography for my wedding. I highly recommend them. Not only did they take over 1000 photos they also had them ready for pick up in under 3 weeks! I had Kevin and Frances for my wedding and they both did a great job. I highly recommend using Kevin! Eric has great costumer service when you meet to sign the contract and when you pick up your photos. Thanks so much.

Pure Devotions and their staff are truly amazing. Getting marry involves a lot of preparation and planning. I can't imagine going through this wedding ordeal without getting professional help. The wedding staffs - Connie and Eric were friendly, understanding and patient with what my wants and needs are. I work with them on the services that I need - Lighting, Makeup, Wedding Gown Rental, Photography and etc. What works best is that they run a full stop wedding service business. With their help, I didn't have to go through the hassle with different vendors. Pure Devotions, you guys ROCK. I would totally recommend this company to all my friends.

Our 1st Yelp review! Had to give this business a glowing recommendation b/c of the wonderful job they did with our wedding. We were referred to Eric by our friends, whose wedding he also photographed.
After getting in touch, we found out that Eric works with a bunch of people who do flowers, decor, dress rentals, makeup/hair, etc. I wish we had found them earlier, to save us all that time talking with different vendors.
Eric gave us a very reasonable quote for shooting our wedding (it was a 12-hour day, I imagine his arm must've been falling off toward the end). And he also brought along an assistant to second shoot. We got the pictures back within 2 weeks and had such a good time looking thru them. The two photographers not only did a spectacular job shooting portraits and us with our guests, they also captured a lot of in-the-moment shots and detailed shots that we weren't able to see on that day. Almost like reliving the day thru the photographer's eyes.
Connie did our wedding flowers, and they turned out even better than I imagined (and I'm quite hard to please when it comes to wedding details-- just ask my husband). She attentively listens to what you want, and was very good about communicating and sending pictures to see what you like. And she was flexible even to our day-before requests. So many of our guests complimented the arrangements, my bouquet, everything. Connie and her assistant worked tirelessly to set up, freshen up the flowers, and move the arrangements to our reception venue. It was about 100 degrees in the sun, but they got everything done quickly on their own. She's the best kind of wedding vendor-- because she asks all the necessary questions beforehand, then on that day, you hardly even see her, she already knows exactly what to do.
Pure Devotion gets a 5-star review from us because they not only did a good job on our wedding, they spent time to get to know us, chatted with us, offered advice & encouragement along the way. They've seen countless weddings so they know what works and what doesn't. Everyone here was a joy to work with, and very professional. Our wedding went quite smoothly, which in no small part was because of Eric & Connie. We highly recommend them! Thanks for everything!
Eric and Connie were referred to me by my friend who had them as their photographer. They were extremely friendly and helpful! I had a very limited budget and they did their best to help me out. I was unable to use Connie as my florist but I really loved the designs that she came up with for my wedding. We had Eric as the videographer and Eric Fok as our photographer. We also did our engagement pictures with them and they were great! As we only had a few weeks left before our wedding, Eric rushed to get the pictures ready and got enlarged photos for us as well. All in all, I would recommend Pure Devotion! You guys are great!

My sister recommended Pure Devotion because she went to school with Connie. I was skeptical at first, but knew I will be in good hands after meeting Connie and Eric in person. Connie was very helpful especially at our engagement photo shoot, she was practically my personal assistant! We had photography, videography, and floral arrangements from PD. They offer a 12-hour package which was really good for those who has a tea ceremony on their wedding day. The over-time charge was quite reasonable, and on the day of, Eric and his team even stayed a little past the 15-hour mark! The bouquets and boutonnieres were also so creative and pretty! I loved my cake decoration, just the way I visioned it, simple but elegant. The morning of our wedding was crazy hectic, and Eric approached me to apologize if he had missed anything important. Of course, I told him that it is not his fault. Also, I am sure that whatever he and the team did capture will be great! Thank you, PD!
We are so glad we made an excellent choice for our wedding day photographer and videographer. Eric and his team are fun, energetic and professional. They gave us the best memory of the most important day in our life. We did a lot of research when it comes to hire the right person for video and photo because these are the record for the beginning of our husband and wife journey together. After we checked their work on the website and talked to Eric in person, we decide to go with him because he listened to what we want and design our own theme for us. We like him using the camera to express it in an artistic way. After we got their work, we are amazed. Because of them, when we look back later, all the laughter and sweet moments will still seem like yesterday.
We had Eric as our videographer and it was an excellent choice for our wedding! Eric is very professional and knows what he is doing. He has a background in TV productions, so he knows how to use the best techniques to shoot the best videos. He is also very friendly and makes it a very fun environment even when they are cameras in your face. He brought along an assistant and both were very patient and detailed. Eric shot our entire day from the early morning tea ceremony to the last dance. He even helped us take some photos too! Eric was able to deliver a highlight video to us within a month! Now we have beautiful videos to remember our special day. We highly recommend Eric at Pure Devotion!

They did a wonderful job for my wedding. Eric and his team have helped me on not only photo shooting, but also preparing the wedding itinerary! They took nice pictures and made awesome videos for me. My wife and I both enjoyed their services and products. I highly recommend them.

I got married last November. Eric was my videographer. I love, love, love our video cause he had taken some drome shots, and many other memorable beautiful shoots. The price was very reasonable for my engagement, highlighted, and long version video. I showed my engagement video at my reception and my guests gave the video a 10/10. I am very happy that I had choose the right videographer.
Connie was my florist. I love her work! With the money I spent, I think it is well worth it cause with her flower arrangements she had transformed my reception to be exceptionally beautiful. My theme color was pink/ white/ green. The arrangements looked perfect on the vase that she choose. Connie and her team were there to set up the flowers at my ceremony and reception so I was worried free.
Thanks to Connie and Eric for helping at my wedding... they are GREAT!
We worked with Eric as our videographer for our wedding on Aug. 1st, 2015. Eric was wonderful to work with -- he was professional, responsive and simply easy to work with. We met with him and thoroughly talked about our package before signing the contract. The pricing was very reasonable and Eric was very detailed in explaining what was included in our package. We originally agreed on having 2 videographers including Eric himself for our wedding day, but Eric was generous enough to offer 3 videographers in total in order to capture more angles on our big day.
Pure Devotion and their whole team worked seamless in the background on our wedding day -- they captured the moments without being intrusive. They definitely delivered everything that was promised in the package and more -- thank you to the entire team of Pure Devotion for capturing our day! Special thanks to Eric for his great communication, going above and beyond in all our requests and simply being a great vendor who I did not need to worry about!
