October 20, 2012  Wedding


“ My husband Dan and I were referred to Don Samples and Midnight Magic Studios by our wedding coordinator. We had chosen the beautiful month of October in Gatlinburg for our wedding and we were living in California. Needless to say we were concerned that everything be just perfect while having to plan everything long distance. We were especially concerned that we have the best videographer for our wedding video! We could not have chosen a more perfect videographer to record our beautiful day. The first time we spoke with Don on the phone he made us feel so comfortable and told us in detail how he would create the perfect wedding film for us. And he did!!! When we met Don for our interview he asked just the right questions and listened to us to hear our story of how we met and fell in love. We felt like we were old friends! Don and his assistant, Lindsey, were the absolute best!!!! They’re very professional and inconspicuous and yet managed to capture every little detail. Beginning with the preparations before the wedding ceremony, through the entire wedding mass and reception, Don and Lindsey quietly captured all the happy, funny and special moments that made our wedding day so perfect!!! He added special touches to the wedding film to show all the things I love about the Smoky Mountains and why we had chosen that location for our beautiful day!!! Sadly, my beloved “big” brother who was part of our wedding party passed away unexpectedly only 4 days after our wedding. Don included a very touching “remembrance” to him in our wedding film which made it even more special for me! I cannot say enough about Don and Midnight Magic Studios! He’s become a very dear friend and he’s absolutely the BEST videographer!!! Everyone who has seen our wedding film has been very impressed with the work that Don put into it. It’s PERFECT!!! Thank you, Don! ”

“I am so glad that I chose Don Samples with Midnight Magic Video to be my videographer. He did a WONDERFUL job, including everything from our wedding video to our photo montage to even the customer service that he provides. I was happy with all of our other wedding vendors as well, but Don was the only one who I truly felt cared about us and our wedding. We actually still keep in touch via Facebook. Our wedding video brings out every emotion as I watch it, and everyone that has viewed it has had only positive comments. I knew that on my wedding day, my video would be the last thing I had to worry about. Don is very professional, and you will not regret hiring him as your videographer. He is FANTASTIC!”

We  just watched our wedding video for the first time, and was absolutely amazed! The video tells the entire story of our day from start to finish. Don and his team were there with us in the cold for about 12 hours and smiled the entire time:) They did an amazing job and were so easy to work with. I am so pleased with the final video and so excited that we have it to keep forever. I know we’ll enjoy watching it for years to come. I would very highly recommend Don and Midnight Magic Videos to anyone needing a videographer!”

"Well, let me just say for anyone who is getting married and looking for a videographer you want DON SAMPLES to do your wedding.!!!!!!!!!!


I have used 3 different videographers for my 3 daughters weddings. All I can say is if I had known Don sooner, he would have done all three. Hire Don, You won’t be disappointed!!!!”



June 2011 Wedding


Don Samples is amazing!! He worked so hard the day of my wedding and captured my day in such a special way. He treats you like you’ve known him for years and puts 110% into everything he does. He was very, very busy this past summer and so it took a little bit longer than expected for him to complete our video. However, the whole time he was excellent about keeping me updated as to where he was at in getting to our video and when we could expect him to be finished. There was a small problem with my last name being misspelled on the DVD cover and he has more than made up for that small mistake. It was easily fixed but he has gone above and beyond to make it right and provided me with several additional DVDs at no cost to me.


“Both he and his assistant captured every moment of our wedding with such professionalism! They were there for everything but you never knew they were there at all. They were amazing and so fun to work with! Don is a genuine person and a great videographer. Not only does he do amazing work, he is also VERY reasonably priced.


“I would DEFINITELY recommend Don Samples and Midnight Magic Studios to anyone looking for a videographer to capture the most special day of their life! Thanks for everything Don!!”

"Yes, I watch my wedding video randomly, and yes I still cry every time. The happiest of happy tears I watched it again today, almost 2 years after the wedding, and I just wanted to tell you that I am so glad that I have this video. I think it is probably the best investment we made for the wedding. Just to be able to relive those feelings and emotions any time I want, is priceless! Not only do I get to see Stuart and I on our day, but I get to see all the wonderful friends and family that shared our day with us and the joy on their faces what a happy day!! Thank you so much for capturing all of it in a way that only video can. I am so grateful! The emotion I feel when I watch the video is indescribable and I have you to thank for that.  You are great at what you do! I will continue to spread the word of Midnight Magic Studio"
