We hired Marcella for our September wedding and could not have been happier! The videographer was the one thing that my now husband was nervous about. He had an image of being followed around all night by bright lights and a camera. Marcella was able to capture our day and special moments between my husband and I without being intrusive. Many times we were even unaware that she was there!!

She is extremely thoughtful and flexible. She only focuses on one wedding at a time so doesn't even meet with you until the week of your wedding. I really appreciated this because while she was always available to answer questions prior to the week of our big day, when we mapped out the day she was extremely invested and focused on doing what she felt would match our personalities.

I highly recommend her and her team!! Book her now so she doesn't already full up her calendar for next year!!

Marcella was wonderful to work with!! She was incredibly professional and easy to get in touch with throughout the whole build up to the wedding.

She also was incredibly flexible. Our wedding wasn't a precisely choreographed event where we knew exactly what time dinner would be served, be over and then what time dancing would begin... as it turned out, dancing didn't really start til about 9pm and Marcella stayed later than we'd discussed to get some really great footage!

The video itself from Marcella is fantastic. She sent us three copies in really nice cases and the part set to music is wonderful as is the video that takes you through the day.

I would highly recommend Marcella because she does lovely work but also because she's a great person to work with and I enjoyed so much having her be a part of our day!

Marcella was absolutely wonderful to work with! Her viewpoint was to simply document the wedding and not be a part of it, which was exactly what we wanted. We barely knew she was there and there were no annoying spotlights on the dance floor or big cameras in our faces. At the same time, she got really great footage and put it together beautifully. We were so happy to have found her and have her on our special day.

Marcella is the upmost professional. My daughter picked her company out and I had no idea what to expect. Within 3-4 weeks of the wedding, we got the first, short little video set to the music my daughter and her husband had their first dance to. I have watched it at least 15 times and it moves me to tears everytime I see it. It is breathtakingly beautiful and moving. Not one of our family friends has seen it without commenting that can't believe how perfect it is. My daughter has now received the full video and also loves that. Marcella made one for both families and I can't wait to see the full version. She is an extremely talented and creative person and you would be lucky to have to her do your wedding. My family cannot say enough about her work. Wow. Amazing.

I spoke with Marcella after looking at dozens of videographers online. I wanted someone with a fun and natural style, and she knew exactly what I meant. She worked with me to give me a package within my budget that was great for both of us. I had contacted her only three weeks before the wedding, but on the day-of everything was seamless. The video is one of our favorite things from the day!

If you are on the fence about getting a videographer for your wedding go for it and hire Heirloom Pictures. It is worth the investment. Check out their videos online and compare them to other companies and you will find the quality of the product you are getting compared to the price is a steal. Many relatives who weren't able to attend my wedding were able to view the video and experience emotions you can't really capture with a picture. I am so happy that I hired Heirloom pictures and I hope you do too.
