TESTIMONIALS

Testimonials from clients...

I would highly recommend Cherish the Thought for anyone wanting something beautiful created from nothing (old photos, home video, restoration etc)
I provided Vikki with my wedding photos and short "amateur" video clips taken by a friend. I had little hope that much could be done.
In just under a week Vikki sent me a short clip to share with my husband on our anniversary, and had put together an entire 1 hour length movie of my wedding. How she did this from what l gave her I still don't know?
Vikki's attention to detail is second to none. She is trustworthy, hard working and above all a beautiful lady inside and out.  Vikki will work with you to create nothing short of perfection!
Vikki's pricing is very reasonable for the quality of work you get.

I can't express how extremely grateful I am to have found Vikki. I will definitely be using Cherish the Thought again.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Vikki you made grown men cry.  You turned our 45 year old wedding film into a spectacular movie, and the severely blemished black and white proofs into a wonderful slide show and keepsake prints for our party guests to take home. Your comments and helpful advice for music were impeccable - a number of our guests want copies of the wedding movie. We are very impressed with your professionalism, depth of knowledge and endless patience shown to us by you. We would recommend 'Cherish the Thought' to anyone who is contemplating turning their old videos into something to cherish.

Many, many thanks Vikki.

Vikki successfully coordinated & produced a short film to be shown at my fathers wake all from Sydney. The amazing thing here is that we did not meet in person, nor did the pictures arrive from where I lived in the Hunter Valley but from all over Australia & even the USA. Technology is truly wonderful in times such as this & Vikki made this all so easy for me by utilizing her skills & knowledge of this to send my father off in style, thank you so much.

Dear Vikki, thanks so much for putting the DVD together for Mum and Dads 60th wedding anniversary. The music you chose to fit in with different stages of their lives was just perfect .  The DVD was the highlight of the party, they were over the moon with it ,as were the rest of the family and friends. The quality and sequencing was as good as I could possibly have hoped for, thank you again you made their day.

Best Wishes  Stephen Doyle


Bruce and I would like to extend our thanks to Vikki for putting together a wonderful DVD of photos and video footage for our son for his 21st birthday. It really captured our son's many aspects of life, some moving and some very funny. We played it at his 21st party and everyone was amazed at how good it was. It certainly brought a lot of laughter to the party! The whole DVD got rave reviews from our guests, young and old. Dean was gobsmacked at some of the video footage Vikki found and included (eg the motorcrossing race when Dean did a "mono" at the start - it's the only one he has on video at the start of any race).

The whole production was very professional, the songs were great and Vikki, you made the whole exercise easy for us.

We would recommend Cherish the Thought to anyone who wants a DVD presentation done for any special occasion. Please feel free to show our DVD to anyone who would like to see an example of your work.

 Hi Vikki,

Thank you so much for co-ordinating all those photos, paper clippings and video shots and placing them so professionally onto a DVD for mum’s 90th Birthday. The DVD was played at the party for Mum on Saturday 13th, a great surprise to all and such a hit. They were all so amazed to think from a few photos etc in an old packet, that such a great presentation could be produced and presented in such a terrific way.

Once again thank you for all your hard work in producing the DVD, copies of which have been given to the family. I believe they have been replayed a few times over.

Thanks and Kind Regards

Vikki was a godsend to us.  We looked at our 8mm films one day and found they were deteriorating fast!  Thanks to Vikki, we now have 40 years of memories safely on DVD now, and can look at them whenever we like and show the family.

We recently had our 15-year-old wedding video edited by "Cherish The Thought".  The quality of the tape had diminished and was so dark you could hardly see it.  Vikki Kemmler managed to restore it to a quality that we were very impressed with i.e., it's much lighter and clearer than it was.  We love the finished product.  All the highlights we wanted are there.  We now have a 40min DVD that is professional, that sounds and looks great and we can show to family and friends without boring them.  I would recommend Cherish The Thought's services to anyone wanting to have their videos restored/edited.

Donna Kanellis - Denistone NSW


Thank you so much for the producing our wedding DVD and Emily & Ryan's edited DVD's from the original videotapes. I was a bit skeptical at first as to whether it was needed, but after seeing the finished product I'm a convert! Things like the editing, adding background music and graphics transformed the original footage to a totally different plane. Watching them after they'd been given the “Vikki Kemmler” treatment was a really emotional experience. We'll certainly be back for more in the future. Thanks once again.

Michael was so pleased with his Egypt movie that you transferred from our tapes to DVD.  We re-lived our holiday all over again with thanks to you. Many thanks.

Just arrived home and I wanted to thank you again for your very hard work and passion. The tribute of my father was shown at the wake in the UK and was enjoyed by so many of Dad’s friends and all our family. It’s a wonderful DVD to have and treasure always. I wanted to say thanks for doing it at short notice. You have a special talent and a warm and generous heart and we “The Nicholas Clan“ thank you!!!

We had Cherish The Thought create a wonderful DVD presentation for our Mum's 70th birthday and it added a special something to the occasion.  The professional way the DVD was done was fantastic, the photos we provided were brought to life in a beautiful story of our mum's life which made everyone laugh and cry.  I would certainly recommend Cherish The Thought to anyone who wanted a professional DVD to remember any special occasion. 

Tracey Gronau - Meadowbank NSW


Thank-you so much Vikki for all your wonderful, professional editing work on the Xmas DVD that I had sent overseas to my friends in Brazil. Your suggestions on taking some footage at the local coffee shop (one of our old haunts) was so warmly received and to say they were overwhelmed would be an understatement. In fact, to quote them verbatim, really says it all ..."You made us cry! We do not have words to express our feelings". I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your work to anyone and have already been doing just that. I myself, have watched the DVD many times and will always treasure it. Thank-you once again!

Vikki has allowed us to share some great memories that we thought were lost forever on very old 8mm film. Professionally captured and set to music on DVD, it made a superb Christmas gift for the parents.

Mark Rosen - Paddington NSW


We recently celebrated a friend’s 50th at Uluru. She invited 70 guests for a spectacular party weekend and we wanted to give her something special as a gift and to say thank you. Also this woman has everything so we wanted something unique.

Vikki from Cherish The Thought put together an amazing DVD using both still photos and video. Our friend who had only memories of the night thought it was brilliant. She loved seeing the night unfold and was in tears watching the video. It was the best present we could have given her.

Hi Vikki, I just want to write and thank you for all the work you did on our family tapes to DVD.  As you know there were 30 tapes which you put on to DVD and they go back to when our two girls were born (they are now 20 and 21 years old).  You also made me two sets of copies which I gave to my girls each for Christmas and they having the most fun just watching themselves as little children and remembering times and old friends.  It is great that they can see these now because I would not let them play the tapes, as I was concerned that they would deteriorate or disintegrate and then all the memories would be lost. 

So the girls and my family had not seen many of the tapes and it was just great to watch all the kids (and us) get older and all the things that  they and we did.

My daughter Aleeda said that she thinks that this is the best present she has ever been given and these DVD’s are very precious and she is looking forward to one day being able to show them to her children.

Thank you Vikki for you professional and thoughtful service especially the DVD of our wedding which you put that lovely music that my husband and I watch and have a little joyful cry to. I have given you name and number to a few of my friends and tell people about you whenever I can. Thanks for the memories.
