Vena not only does quality work, but is very personable and easy to work with. His sense of humor puts you at ease. He helps you be comfortable, even if you've never been in front of a camera before, and his creativity helps you create a video that you love. I've worked with him on videos for almost a year, and he has great ideas not only for lighting, angles, setting, and all things video, but also for scripting, too.Heidi Wilcox

Lalven is a joy to work with. He is incredibly knowledgeable and talented in recording and editing video and brings a creativity and professionalism to his work that makes it stand out to the viewer. I have received many comments on the excellence of the video that he made for me and I feel that his video fully represents who I am and the work that I do. Working with Lalven, you will receive a creative professional with a desire for excellence who will be sensitive to the message you have to share. Casey Culbrith

Vena is an amazing talent. His attention to detail when it comes to shot composition and editing is outstanding. He has not only helped the Communications Department of Asbury Seminary produce high quality photography and video, but has also helped me personally, with a video that captures the heart of my own non-profit organization. So thankful for Vena’s imagination, insight and creativity! Debra Adams
