Hiring James for our October 2nd wedding was the best choice hands down! I can't tell you how many times I have watched our cinematic highlight video and all the great comments I have received from friends and family within minutes of me posting it on my facebook!
James and the 2nd photographer were on time, professional, flexible and super nice, even with all the behind the scene chaos they were great! Trust me when I say he is worth every dollar we spent and more!
Your wedding day goes by so fast and its so nice to be able to look at the video and relive it in such a beautiful way over and over!
Thanks again James, we love our video!

I was not one who wanted a videographer, but my mom insisted so I searched high and low looking for a videographer that would give me a classy and not cheesy video. I found James and was sold!! I have never cried at a wedding, and after watching one of his highlight videos I was in tears over a total strangers wedding!! It was touching and moving and best of all, no cheesy fade in and out stuff!! His eye for editing is unreal. Takes a line from a speech or vows and weaves the whole video around. PERFECTION!

His work is awesome!! My husband and I and our family LOVE our wedding video. He captured the spirit of the whole event in a way that I thought was not possible. He edited the whole thing to be 40 minutes which was PERFECT! (I mean who wants to watch a 3 hour wedding video??) He was not intrusive and I didn't even know he was there half the time (in fact, on a few occasions I would say something inappropriate thinking only my friends were around and BAM...there he was. Ninja style!!).

If you are on the fence about hiring a videographer, I would def recommend you get one and go with James. You will not be disappointed. He is a super talent!!

We hired James to shoot our wedding last year, and we are so happy that we did! Not only is he a great guy, but we really loved the video footage that he shot.

We saw samples of James' work online, and set up a meeting based on those clips, since we really liked his style, the look and feel of the videos, etc. We enjoyed our meeting with him and immediately trusted that he would be able to capture the day of our wedding. If you look at any of his videos online, you'll see how he captures the essence of the day in a very real way. We wanted a video, but not anything that was cheesy or a typical wedding video.

A couple of days after the wedding (it was very fast turnaround) - we got the "short form" video, and that was followed up with the longer form version which we also opted for. The video was just extremely well done; James did a great job of including the relevant moments from the day and really capturing the vibe of the ceremony and party, via his production and editing. We find ourselves watching and re-watching the footage, which - at the end of the day - I think is a good a measure as any as to how good a job your videographer has done! Our friends and family have also commented on what an amazing video it is. Can't express how lucky we feel to have found James and to have our wedding day memories forever!

We recommend James most highly - his work, is amazing and he's also a great guy to work with.

We were recommended to James by another videographer who was unable to be at our wedding. When we met up with James, we loved his work and booked with him on the same day that we met up with him. He even let us keep 5 samples of his previous works to show future brides.

His work is very professional and I can't wait to see the finish product of our wedding. He had a lot of fun at our wedding that he even YouTube our kissing game at our wedding. You should check out his blog to see the kissing game!

Last year I started the wonderful (and intense) process of planning our wedding. I called vendor after vendor, had meetings upon meetings, and finally came across Burkart Video. My finance and I meet with James, and grilled him on our many wedding day stipulations; we wanted assistance in the who's, when's, and where's about our video but, only up to the day of. Both our photographer and videographer had to be illusive and completely non-evasive on the day of the wedding, we wanted to enjoy our day as if no one else was around. After assuring us he does just that, we hired him on the spot - today I have realized, this was one of best investments we made. Honestly, not only was he pleasant, kind, and great to work with - he followed our illusive instructions to a T. I barely remember him there and I must admit after our beautiful day was over, I even thought... where was he, was he there the whole time? Yesterday, I found out just how there he was. We received our video and it was perfect, amazing, and literally, dream like. Remember the fantasies of how perfectly everything would go that day, laying in bed smiling at each perfect moment? It was as if I was watching that memory come to life. He captured each moment, and played it back to us better then we ever imagined. And the actual editing and filming's quality is amazing - he truly is a professional videographer, with the perfect eye to capture each perfect moment.

James was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was attentive before, during, and after the wedding. The cost was definitely well worth the quality of work that James produced. Both James and his assistant were fabulous the day of the wedding and were able to capture every important moment. The video could not have turned out better! I would highly recommend James as a videographer, and have already to others!

James Burkhart was amazing. He threw in so many extras with our package compared to other vendors, was very professional and friendly, always responding quickly and effectively throughout our wedding and the booking process. When we received our video, I was amazed how nice it turned out and how good everything looked. We didn't have a package with a lot of editing, but the way he put it together made it seem like we did. Everything flowed nicely, the quality was wonderful, and he caught all of our favorite moments we wanted to remember and more! I was so glad we chose this company to do our wedding. We had been on the fence about if we needed a videographer or not, but after we had the DVD in hand, we decided this was one of the VERY BEST investments we made and were so glad we chose Burkhart Video. I absolutely recommend this vendor!

We were on a budget in planning our wedding and debated about not having a videographer at all. However, after talking to several people that didn't, they said that was their biggest regret. So, after shopping around, BurkartVideo was one of our final 3. James was starting out and had assisted in many weddings but only did a few on his own.

We were a little skeptic but for the price, we couldn't say no. All I can say is he was fabulous from start to finish. The final product was more than I can ask for. It was like watching a movie. He was there from the time I got ready until we drove away in our car.

There was so much going on and I wasn't sure how he would edit it all. But he did and it was amazing. I still cry when I pop it in to watch.

I gave the DVDs to my wedding party as a gift and they mentioned that they didn't even realize that he was there so much. He seemed "invisible". And my wedding planner said it was one of the best wedding videos that he's seen.

I highly recommend him.
