Review us on The Knot

Jim and his wife did an amazing job video taping our event! We had a morning South Indian ceremony and an evening reception. They both took such good care and dedication to making sure all of the important aspects of ceremony and reception were captured. No part of their work affected the event for us or others. The trailer video came very quickly and was perfectly composed for the memorable parts. The long and longer versions of the video included all of the crucial parts that especially our families who couldn't be part of the event enjoyed. Highly recommend them especially for Indian events! - Dhanu (on Wedding Wire)

If you are on the fence about getting a videographer, I know exactly how you feel! I was the exact same way, and could not imagine spending more money on something that did not feel essential to our wedding. However, we got our video last night, and I turned to my husband smiling, and said "That was seriously the best money we ever spent." And trust me, I was incredibly budget conscious throughout our entire wedding. I laughed, I cried, and I loved seeing guests interact that I did not notice on the day of the wedding. It's so fun to see! Jim was an absolute professional and quite possibly the easiest of our vendors to work with. He answered all of his emails in an incredibly quick amount of time, and we received our wedding trailer and full video quicker than I anticipated. My number one concern was whether or not our videographer would be in the way. Let me tell you now that I hardly knew Jim was there. I can't believe the shots he was able to get without me even seeing him. I researched a ton of other videographers, and Jim was definitely the most reasonably priced that I saw. I cannot recommend him enough. Seriously, if you are on the fence about having a videographer, just do it and hire Jim! - Bryanna (on Wedding Wire)

We couldn’t have picked a better videographer! A video of your wedding is such an important piece to share all your memories. Jim was absolutely wonderful! His highlights and full length video were stunning! It will be something we will cherish for the rest of our lives and I couldn’t be happier!!
Thank you Jim!!!

After considering several videographers for our wedding, we were very impressed with Jim from the start. His style fit with exactly what we wanted - we watched several of his videos and loved the way he captured the little moments and details and the big events of the day from multiple viewpoints. He offers straightforward, affordable packages that covered everything we wanted and more and he made us feel immediately comfortable with the process by answering all of our questions and concerns throughout the process. The day of our wedding he was prompt, easy to work with, coordinated with our vendors seamlessly, and honestly flew under the radar for much of the day. When we watched our video we were amazed at the little moments he captured. It was so fun to see the day from a guest perspective and enjoy our day all over again. We can’t recommend Jim enough to fellow brides and grooms. His style is awesome and he was such a pleasure to work with. We will treasure our video for life!

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! The day of the wedding we barely knew he was there, but when looking at our highlights and full wedding video, he documented every little special detail. Jim and his team did such a beautiful job, I would recommend them to other couples without question!

It took some convincing, but 2 months before our wedding my husband and I decided to get a videographer. We decided to go with Pirate Lane Video and I am so glad we did! Their pricing was great for the quality of the video. They were very quick to give us a teaser trailer, and the full length video came out so good, I cried....a lot. I highly recommend them!

"Wedding Highlights and Film came out BEAUTIFUL"

"Jim and Pirates Lane video was the perfect choice for our wedding videographer. We just received our wedding highlights and full film and could not be more happier with the results. It takes talent to edit that much footage and be able to capture the key essence of the day but Jim and his team did so effortlessly. We have received so much compliments on our highlights video. Aside from the final product, Jim was very easy to work with. He was very prompt with any questions we had and very professional. Overall, we highly recommend Pirates Lane Videos for your video needs. Between the great pricing, professionalism of Jim, and wonderful final products, you truly will not be disappointed. We will forever be thankful to Jim and his team for now we have something so special and beautiful to look back on from one of the most important days of our lives." - Chris Mercedes

We could not have chosen a better videographer for our wedding. When first searching for a videographer, I asked around to my friends. When a friend of mine sent me the link to her wedding video shot by Jim, my response was, "you had a videographer!? I never would have known". Jim is unobtrusive, thoughtful, flexible, and truly loves what he does. The quality of his work is outstanding. He went above and beyond during every aspect of planning the wedding video with us. We have so much amazing footage of our day and will cherish it forever! Working in the hospitality industry, I know how "in your face" some videographers can be. Jim is the exact opposite of that, yet captures the moments exceedingly well.

Thanks, Jim! - Lauren

I just wanted to share how amazing it was working with Jim from Pirates Lane. My husband and I got married at The Barn at Gibbet Hill in June 2017. I just felt like from beginning to end he was so professional and attentive to my needs and what I wanted to be included in my wedding video. At my wedding Jim had his own drone to take ariel shots of the barn which was amazing, he chose the most perfect music for my wedding video, and was so discrete at our barely noticed he was there. It truly was an amazing experience and watching my wedding video still makes me cry. The highlight video was amazing, it was so perfect and included literally every moment that meant the world to me. If you were to ask yourself...will I really want a wedding video? The answer is yes, and it is worth every cent! Use Jim, you won't regret it. Cheers, Happy Planning.

"Jim from Pirates Lane was an absolute pleasure to work with. I originally had not budgeted for a wedding videographer and ultimately realized I would really regret not having video footage of my wedding. I am so happy I decided to hire Jim. He is extremely professional and responsive. Of all the wedding vendors I worked with, he was by far the fastest to respond to emails, which was greatly appreciated, especially in the final weeks leading up to the wedding. - Jen WeddingWire

"When Jim delivered us our video - he absolutely blew us away. The quality was as good, if not even better than the "high-baller videographers" we had come across in our initial search. It was breathtaking. He captured all of the perfect moments, had orchestrated the best music that perfectly aligned with stills on screen - it was simply incredible. Not to mention, Jim was the absolute BEST to work with. I never noticed him once at our wedding - he wasn't in our faces like videographers had been at other weddings we'd been too, yet the footage he captured made it seem like he was RIGHT there in the action. Based on the video, it looked like he had cameras going from a hundred different angles - yet I never saw one. He was so respectful, and so polite. After dealing with many vendors who took some time to get back to us, he was extremely responsive, and always positive and accommodating. After not wanting a videographer in the first place - he ended up being our absolute favorite vendor!" - M (weddingwire review)

"The videography and sound are of the highest quality. Jim included all the content we wanted, plus much more. Jim was so unobtrusive (we and our guests didn't even know he was there), yet he caught everything from every angle. Jim's work far exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others!!" - Emily
