Godfather films was the best investment we made for our wedding. John was a complete professional through the entire process. From the first day we met John really took his time to explain the Godfather Films process and services making us feel 100% comfortable and knowledgable about the service. We knew Godfather Films was going to do a great job filming our wedding but when we received the final cuts of our video we were absolutely floored by the masterpiece that Godfather Films put together. We could not have imagined how amazing our video could and John really exceeding our expectations. Now we have our love story to enjoy time and time again. We cannot thank you Godfather films enough for the exceptional work they did filming our wedding and making it a cherish able work of art. We love Godfather Films and recommend them to everyone seeking videography services. Thank you Godfather Films!

John and his team are amazing! My husband and I planned our wedding from out-of-state, and so never actually met the Godfather Films team before the big day. But John was always just a call or email away during the planning process--always prompt and always professional. Not once did I find myself stressed or worried about our videography.
Fredy was our lead videographer, and was an absolute pleasure to work with--very funny and very professional. He and his assistant captured all of the important moments and even our most memorable candid moments. Much of the time we didn't even realize they were filming! The turnaround was much faster than we expected, and the final product was truly perfect. The ceremony, reception, and highlight films are exactly what we wanted, and will be wonderful memories in the years to come.

John was an absolute pleasure to work with! I asked Godfather Films to do the videography, photobooth, and add a projection for my wedding and I could not be happier with the results. He is singularly talented at videography, the photobooth came with loads of fun props and everyone loved it, he created custom images for our pictures, and his assistants were extremely accommodating and courteous. I highly, highly recommend him!!!

John is incredibly talented. He knows how to adapt to each person in order to obtain the best footage. He listens well and is attentive the entire day! He never lost sight of the bride and groom and was always there to catch every important event. John is very professional, friendly, flexible, and kind. He filmed my sister's, my cousin's and most recently my wedding and did a fantastic job. We will certainly hire him again for any future events we may need!

John was great throughout the whole wedding planning process! He was quick to respond to emails, and always made time to discuss details about the big day. We are so happy with the way our video turned out-he did a wonderful job. He really balanced each part of the day throughout the video so that we could relive each aspect of the day. John's calm demeanor was an added bonus on the big day-which kept me calm! He seemed to stay 'behind the scenes' while still catching every moment on video.

We have hired Godfather films many times over the last 25 years. It will be the best money you spend on your daughter's or son's wedding!! I do not say this lightly! The time goes by so quickly at the wedding and many times to a bride and groom it is all just a blur. This brings them back to all the moments, and many moments that they never got to see!! They do an excellent job of not being noticed as they are filming. John and his team are the consumate professionals. They do a superb job!!! They truly care about their clients, and they know how important these moments will be! The service they provide is truly remarkable, and I can't recommend them enough!!!!

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!!
