First Kiss Films created the most amazing engagement video for us this Fall. We used it as our save the date and had such a great response from all our family and friends. We can't wait to work with Bridget again. Her positive energy and encouragement made us feel super comfortable. Thanks so much!

Bridget Redmond made an absolutely gorgeous film of our special day. I didn't know if I really wanted/needed a filmaker but I'm so glad she was there.

I really truly cannot express in words what a talent Bridget is, and the special gift she gave us for not just our wedding day, but the years to come. She created for us the most memorable film, and magically it expressed our personalities and who we are as a couple in such a timeless manner. We cried the first time we watched it, and everytime since. Bridget has the unique ability through First Kiss Films to really truly capture the essence of love in a visual language that transcends beyond place and time. She is a treasure, and I would highly recommend Bridget and First Kiss Films to anyone who desires an artist's imprint on their greatest life's joys.

We found First Kiss Films through Style Me Pretty and fell in love with vintage cinema. We asked Bridget to film our special day and it was one of our best wedding decisions.

Although she is based in Ottawa (and our wedding was in Toronto), she was more than willing to travel. She was very timely with her response to our emails and very professional. We were also so impressed to receive our film sooner than we expected.

And wow!! Bridget filmed our day so beautifully, with thoughtfulness and art. She captured the emotion, love, joy, celebration, the little moments, and the big moments. We re-live our day every time we watch it.

We absolutely LOVE our wedding film. We are so happy we went with First Kiss Films. We have watched our film multiple times and we're so thankful we have this amazing keepsake for the years to come.

We can't thank Bridget enough for all the memories that she captured on our wedding day. When we viewed the video we were beyond impressed and loved all the details including the music selection. After showing the video to our family, those who were able to attend our destination wedding commented that it felt like they were there again. Those who were unable to attend felt like they could experience the day. Without naming names, someone even told us they teared up when they saw the grooms reaction when he saw the bride for the first time. Thanks again Bridget for capturing all the wonderful moments and memories!!!

Based on our 1920's theme wedding, we researched both local and national vintage videographers. In the end we chose First Kiss based on her portfolio and reviews.

Bridget and her assistant were simply incredible! We worked together before the big day to come up with some great ideas that were far from the standard poses. She immediately put us at ease, taking away the awkwardness and nerves of being the center of attention. Her attention to every detail and desire to get "the perfect shot" made our finished product one we'll treasure forever.

A true talent, one we'll recommend to anyone!!

We knew from the moment we held our film in our hands that it was going to be special. From untying the pink ribbon that was so carefully wrapped around the box it came in to the moment we hit the play button. There truly are no words to fully describe how beautiful our wedding film was. We remember our special day a certain way and you've captured every imagination, every thought, every tear, every laughter and every moment that was quietly missed. Thank you so much for this sweet remembrance of our wedding day. Watching it was like getting married all over again and it took our breath away, once more.

While planning our wedding, a friend pointed out a local contest for services with First Kiss Films. My fiancé and I hadn't considered hiring a videographer, as our budget was really tight (my mother had just passed away), so we thought this was a great opportunity. We ended up winning a secondary prize!

Bridget worked with our budget and our unique situation, and we eager to participate in our wedding day. We had a wonderful first meeting which left us very excited to see what she could come up with.

On the wedding day itself, Bridget was fantastic. She was professional, friendly, kind and sweet to everyone. She worked great with all of our other vendors. I couldn't wait to see the final product!

When we received the finished piece, I was shocked. It was far more beautiful and special than I could ever have imagined. It captured the essence of our wedding way more than any other keepsake from the day. She managed to capture the glances, the smiles, the support and the love that we felt and were surrounded by. We watch our film frequently, even now, to remind ourselves of that day and how we felt. Even a year and a half later, and countless viewings, it still brings me to tears and shows me how loved we are.

Bridget provided us with a service that was so far beyond a video. It's my favourite thing from our wedding, and I can't begin to tell people how worth it it was for us to fit it into our budget.

When I saw the wedding film Bridget had done for my friend Anne-Marie, I fell in love. I fell in love with the beauty of her work and I fell in love with the medium she uses to capture those perfect little moments that say “love.”

I immediately wanted her to capture those little moments on film with my family.

Throughout the whole process, Bridget was amazing and so professional, but with a manner that was kind, easy-going, and totally put me and my whole family at ease. She came to our house in advance to meet the kids, check out our space and ensure everything would go smoothly the day of the shoot. I was so impressed with her rapport with the kids. They were interested in what she was doing with her camera, and wanted to interact with her. At the same time, she was also able to fade into the background and get candid shots of them. The shots she was able to capture are spectacular and cover such a huge range of emotion. And there are so many perfect little details all through out the film.

Bridget listened to our ideas of what we wanted to capture and really integrated them into her own vision, knowledge and experience as a film maker. Her editing of the film, and the story she put together is more than we could have imagined was possible -- it really captures our family. The end result is so, so, so perfect. My husband and I were moved to tears when we first saw it. When we showed it to the kids, they were over the moon. Smiles, laughter and hugs. The film totally captures the joy I get from my family every day.

Words can't describe the magic that Bridget was able to capture for our wedding (Tina & Bola) on June 5, 2010. Right from the first meeting we had she demonstrated that rare mix of professionalism and class that was immensely appealing to the two of us. She engaged us in her wonderfully layed back manner and helped us to understand her craft and how it could enhance our wedding experience. There is no doubt that she has a true passion for videography and it definitely was on full display at our wedding. She also is incredibly accomodating and demonstrated great adaptability. Right before our wedding service was to begin, the officiant announced that he did not want any intrusive events (including video and camera's) to disrupt the sanctity of the ceremony. As none of us were aware of this ahead of time, we were concerned that it might compromise Bridget's ability to capture our event. True to form she adapted quickly and was still able to get some wonderful images of the ceremony. She is great to work with and we're honoured to have her capture our special day.

I absolutely love and adore my wedding film. I was so lucky to find the amazingly talented Bridget Redmond of http://www.firstkissfilms.com when I was planning my wedding last July. She is based in Ottawa, Ontario and she travels as well. Bridget has been a filmmaker for 15 years and I can’t tell you how magical the film she created for us is, although you can view it for yourself on her site We’re so excited to be featured! I adore the quality of super 8 and 16mm film, which I find can’t be replicated in other mediums, and the music was a perfect touch. A quick little story - on our wedding day it thundered and poured rain all morning and into the afternoon. Our outdoor (but covered) ceremony was at 4:30 and miraculously the rain stopped at 4 - the timing was uncanny and Bridget captured it beautifully in the film. It gives me shivers every time I watch it. There’s something so special about how she captured our day. I really do re-live it every time I watch it.
