Top Videographers in Toronto
Here’s what you can expect from our selection – these are companies that cover various events and various video needs. Most of the videography services you’ll find solely focus on weddings, but we wanted to give you broader options with this review.
The firms we chose specialize in both events videography and commercial videography. And while most of them also do wedding videography too, we won’t go much into detail on this particular service as it’s not the only service we seek to put in the spotlight.
Overall, to choose the top videographers in this list, we looked into their portfolio of past works and testimonies from past clients. We also considered competitive pricing and ease of communication from planning to the actual shooting of an event.
|Note: When we mention commercial videography, certain services actually fall within a spectrum of video production services (e.g. scriptwriting for commercials). |
Videography and video production aren’t exactly the same, but there are certain services where you can’t really divorce them from each other, so we’ll present them as they are.
Of course, video coverage for corporate events like branch openings and conferences directly falls under videography on its own. These are still events, after all – just in a “corporate” setting.

Excellent video production
When I see the video now, I see more and more techniques you used to keep it flowing so smoothly and how you used the music so effectively to focus in on the photos. The fading of each picture in the background behind the one in focus is so cool! It is beyond lovely and has brought such comfort to many family members and friends. Many told me they were in tears of sadness and joy as they viewed it! It is truly a keepsake and will be enjoyed by others for years to come. What a gift to my two grandchildren. – Carolyn and Ross Mcarthur
Ensures perfection every step of the way
I can’t thank Danny and his team more, he made us feel like we were the most important couple in the world and ensured everything was perfect from the first moment we met him to the delivery of our video. He captured every moment beautifully, making us laugh the entire day and turned it into the most amazing video. I recommend Danny to every single bride or groom looking to feel special, understood and end up with amazing memories captured forever. I wish I could give him 100/5 stars!! You won’t regret choosing his team. – Jessica Jorge

They can do aerial shots of any scale from small to bigger events in any location. Whether you need them for real estate, resorts, films, or marinas, they can accommodate you.
Slow-mo videography may not be necessary, but they’re pretty fun when it’s there. So if you want to upgrade your video experience, you can let your guests enjoy slow-mo shots.
Great experience from beginning to end
I have been working with Brightside Films for the past 3 years and I stand behind their work. All the videographers and photographers are down to earth people that put in 110% effort on every job to producing great work while having fun with their clients. Brightside understands the importance of a good experience onsite and don’t annoy their clients for the sake of getting a shot. The owner/producer, Laura is friendly, flexible and is always working to make sure you have the best experience from start to finish. – Cesar Ghisilieri

|OPERATING HOURS||Tuesday - Friday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM|
Outside In Studio is our best choice for commercial work and related content. Let’s get to know them more so you’ll have an idea of what they can offer.
Starting off with their commercial videography, they’re best for producing videos for brands. Their range of services includes commercials, brand video content, and social content.
What we found them best for are e-commerce content and snackable social media posts.
For instance, they use slow-mo videography to highlight the unboxing of items on e-commerce platforms.
They can also create a collection of videos for Instagram stories or 30-second Hulu commercials.
Overall, their videography services are best for product showcases to highlight certain features. In fact, one of their posts garnered over 5 million views on TikTok for a client’s showcase.
Like most companies, we also took interest in their wedding videography services. Their approach is a blend of documentary and editorial, with minimal direction to enjoy candid moments.
All their wedding video packages include 12 consecutive hours of coverage. Highlight films can be delivered 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding and the final film can take up to 6 months after your wedding.
Quick and important note – they’re already fully booked for weddings in 2022. So they’re better for couples tying the knot in 2023 and beyond.

For these events, clients have an option for aerial shots and LiveStream for an additional fee. There’s also a photo book option, which is nice as an extra token for your event.
One of the best things we noted about them is their fast delivery times. In fact, they can even do same-day edits (including weddings), which they can deliver in 3 to 6 hours.
And if you need them for extra hours on the day of the event, they can still accommodate you. But only if they don’t have any events scheduled on the same day.
Another thing that we like is that they can help clients plan their shoots. So if you don’t know what your best options are, like for shoot locations, they’ll walk you through them.

Their portfolio of commercial works is pretty notable too. They’ve worked with various industries from car manufacturers to law and real estate firms.
Professional service at a great price
Had a wedding coming up with in a week and needed a budget friendly professional photographer. Found these guys on Instagram and loved there work. So they sent us their best guy (Chris) and let me tell you he legit made rubble and shrubs look like the perfect scenery. Chris was super nice and very knowledgeable and didn’t quit until he got the perfect shot. With that being said if you’re looking for a photographer look no further. The search ends here. – Hamza Idrees
Highly recommended for events
I used 4K’s services for my wedding and my son’s first birthday party and were very pleased with the outcome of the photos. The photographers were professional and I got my photos in a reasonable timeframe. I would highly recommend using them for your functions. – Priya Nagraj
