This company is nothing short of amazing. We hired them the day of our wedding and they showed up without any problem to make our event memorable. Also they even made it possible to play a message on the projection screen.

Words cannot express how absolutely AMAZING Godfather Films is. My husband and I have decided that this was the very best investment that we could have made. We had SEVERAL videos made with Godfather Films.

EVERY SINGLE TIME I watch our videos, I cry like a baby!! The videos allow us to relive how absolutely spectacular our wedding was. I am even taken aback by moments that I missed because I was too busy being a bride:) The wedding videos truly take us back in time to cherish the most amazing weekend of our lives.

I can't say enough about John and his son Chip. We decided last minute to have 2 videographers instead of 1, and that was one of the best decisions we ever made. Every single precious moment was captured. And by having the second person, we were able to show our guests some highlights edited live the day of the reception party.

John and Chip are two of the most caring people that we have ever met. Everyone at our wedding loved them and never felt uncomfortable about having the cameras around them. Their personalities are so sweet and caring that they became part of our family.

My husband and I have decided to hire them every year so that we can do a family video. We now fully realize how important it is to document the most memorable moments of your life.

Thanks John and Chip! Godfather Films ROCKS!!!

If you'd like to see the video, go to http://vimeo.com/71215471. The first 4 minutes is a skit we did in central park and the second 4 minutes is highlights from our 3 day weekend wedding in beautiful Puerto Rico.

P.S. If you are considering hiring Godfather Films, definitely opt for the lookback video!! I cried hysterically the first time that I watched it. I am not sure which video made me cry more; the lookback or the 20 minute video of all three days.

Thanks again Godfather Films!!!

Godfather Films is by far the best videographer around. They filmed our wedding on July 5, 2013 at Ponte Winery in Temecula and produced an absolutely beautiful short and long film. They went above and beyond their scope of work and stayed with us until 2am filming our after party. They arrive when you tell them to, and they leave when the party is over. We could not have asked for anything more from them and we highly recommend them to anyone who is taking part in an important event!!

Godfather films provides excellent sevice and bends over backwards to make sure they deliver a quality product and service!
For my sons wedding they were there ahead of time, caught all of the important events on tape and even stayed to video their sparkler lined escape. We also rented an outdoor photo booth that was a huge hit with all of our guests. The bride and groom's grandparents even participated in the fun using the props provided with the help of Chip, who managed the booth.
I also use Godfather Films for many of the events I coordinate at the University of Redlands. They can also provide sound, lighting, and entertainment contacts.

There is no other videographer in the word that is as skilled and competent as John with Godfather Films. His work literally took my breath away. My sister’s wedding was even more beautiful captured on film than it was in person.

My only regret was that I did not know about Godfather Films when I got married. Working with Godfather Films has truly been a pleasure, with sincere gratitude I write this review.

Godfather films is the most unique wedding video company out there! Their work speaks for itself but the minute we met the owner, John Goolsby, we signed the contract! John has a very special energy about him and he REALLY loves his profession. Godfather films captures special moments in a non-invasive, fun-loving way. Our guests really enjoyed talking with John on and off camera. He made everyone feel comfortable and allowed for genuine fun moments to happen without any "cheesy" typical wedding video interviews.

As the bride, I felt extremely relaxed leaving my big day in the hands of Godfather Films. Many times during the day, John would say something that just reminded me to take it all in and absorb what was happening around me, he is not only a talented, professional...he is a sweet, big hearted person.

If you want a special unique experience...hire Godfather Films. We are so happy that we did!

Booking John with Godfather Films to shoot our wedding was the best planing decision we made. We did a destination wedding in Grand Cayman and our video included 3 days of footage along with scenic island shots. As a wedding planner myself I have extremely high standards when in comes to vendors, and John was everything I could have hoped for and then some. All of my guests commented on how great he was and how non intrusive he was with the cameras. I couldn't have asked for a better video when all was said and done! We have watched our video over and over with family and wedding guests as well as friends and family who couldn't make it to the wedding and everybody has agreed it is one of the best wedding videos they have seen! I would highly reccomend Godfather Films to any couple looking to work with the best in the business!! THANK YOU JOHN!!

God Father Films did a great job for our wedding. We decided 1 month before the wedding that we would like to have videographer. We were lucky they were available for our wedding date. My mom was diagnosed with ALS and was not going to be able to make it to the wedding. GFF went over and above the expectations and delivered rough cut video for my mom to review immediately following the wedding, and the final product a few weeks later was also very lovely to send to our family and friends.

I loved working with Godfather Films and would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a wedding videographer. John is very professional and always positive. I had complete confidence in Godfather Films from start to finish. I loved the video that they made for us, of our wedding day. In many ways I love it more than wedding photos - because it captures the sounds and movements of the day and really bring it all back to life again. I have gotten to know John better since our wedding and he is always upbeat and I always enjoy seeing him.

Kelly, you and your family are so important to me. Choosing Godfather Films to produce your Same Day Edit at Villa Siena in Chandler, Arizona was a wonderful experience. I still remember the surprise reaction from the DJ and your Dad when it received a standing ovation. The guests were so surprised as you personally handed each of them a DVD of the Wedding Video as they left the reception. Your Wedding celebration was fabulous and I am so honored to have filmed it.
