"Looking back, it was by far the best, most meaningful, investment we could have made." - Alexandra R (The Knot 2021)

"Jim did everything right. He was very responsive to all our queries, WAY more reasonably priced than other videographers with streaming options," - Alex M (The Knot 2021)

"You know the video is amazing when I was already in tears after the first 30 seconds. I am bursting at the seems wanting to share my video with everyone. I HIGHLY recommend Jim and can't say enough positive things about his work, his ability to relax those he is videoing, and his professionalism." - Felicia K (The Knot 2020)

"Hiring a videographer was a last minute decision for us, but it turned out to be one of the best decisions that we made! Jim was so responsive and accommodating to all of our questions and requests, he really made the process easy and seamless!" - Christina S (The Knot 2020)

"My fiancé and I were initially hesitant to spend money on a videographer, but Jim had reasonable rates and packages...The highlight film was beautifully done (and makes my parents cry every time they watch it)." - Leah D (The Knot 2018)

"Between the great pricing, professionalism of Jim, and wonderful final products, you truly will not be disappointed. We are very thankful that we have something so beautiful to look back on to remember one of the most important days of our lives." - Chris M (The Knot 2020)
