We are a husband and wife couple. We met while on the job doing wedding entertainment and video service for a local Omaha company. We were married on March 26th, 2010. After working together for 4 years with a local wedding company, we both grew a large passion and skill level for what we do. We both, however, felt limited by our inability to truly give our clients personalized attention to provide the best possible product for our clients. We decided at that point to create A Final Take Music and Video. Our team has grown over the years but we still strive to provide the same personalized attention that our company was founded on.
