I was a real bridezilla during planning and I was a basket case to deal with so when the wedding day came along I had some vendors that drove me crazy! that's why I am so very grateful for piece by piece films they were on time, flexible and did everything perfectly without me even having to worry about them once!
they did a wonderful job on everything... they played a same day edit that looks absolutely wonderful! I cannot wait until we get the actual video!

We recently hired Piece by Piece Films as our wedding videographers, and we couldn't be happier!!

These guys are great at what they do. Their professionalism and attitudes were amazing. From the beginning of their coverage in the hair salon and pre-wedding video around downtown LA, we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing. They were easy to work with and organized with all their awesome equipment, and they had great ideas for us to try. It's so comforting to let professionals do what they do and know you're going to love the result!

At our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour & reception they were always at the ready getting great video of every part of our event (without ever being in the way!) I know they also got lots of great footage of details we didn't even know about. Near the end of the night (even though they could have left already) they asked us to try a few fun ideas that would make cool additions to our wedding film. We were impressed that they really cared about making our video amazing!
These guys are very talented, and you can tell they really love what they do.

100% recommended!!!

Peter and his crew were the videographers for my best friends wedding. After I saw her video, I wanted to work with them immediately. They are very talented and really know how to capture the right tone depending on your wedding. I never felt like there were 2+ cameras in my face! They are extremely reliable and professional but also kind and easy to be around.
Thank you Peter! I would recommend you and your team to anyone that is getting married - actually I already have!

Peter was incredibly professional with a super creative eye and tons of ideas. My husband and I (still feels weird saying husband!) wanted to do the Love Story option that Peter offers but because we were long distance with barely any time, we decided against it. Instead, Peter came up with a great idea for a same day edit which included clips from the events of the prior days set to amazing music, as well as important clips from the wedding day leading right into the first dance. PEOPLE WERE FLOORED! It's the number one thing people took away from our wedding, and that's pretty incredible. We can't thank Peter enough for putting our wedding day over the top.

hiring the right videographer is probably one of the most important decisions during the whole wedding planning process because you want someone that will be able to capture all the moments of a wedding at the right angle and the right time, because it will be a keepsake for the rest of your life. and I'm so glad we hired Peter as our wedding videographer.

we almost didn't book Peter because he was late to first meeting due to an honest mistake (and i'm sure this is the only time that has happened to him). But he was extremely sorry, and we decided to give him another chance. when we met up later in the day, he even bought me a box of truffles !! =) but that's not what changed out mind...when we saw his work and how organized he is with all his files and clients and his artistic work (DVD covers and video shots), we were impressed!

We kept in touch all the way up to the wedding. Peter is very professional, accommodating and worked well with all our other vendors.

Peter also made the slideshow for my wedding, he even made last minute changes the night before my wedding.

I look forward to the edited videos and films, i know its going to be AMAZING! =)

In all honesty, this is where you should have your wedding. You get to work with people who genuinely care and understand all your needs in video. We weren't sure what to expect but we're very pleased.

So, what we loved about Peter & his team, was how nice he was. Everyone single one of my family members kept commenting on how kind he was.. and how thoughtful he was.

The best part is they truly did a great job filming our wedding and really incorporated pretty much EVERYTHING into the trailer! I can't even imagine how awesome our wedding short-film and finalized feature film will be!

Just a side note, we've gotten nearly 1,000 views on our trailer on youtube in just a week! Check it out, you wont be disappointed!

Before our wedding we were contemplating whether we wanted a videographer or not. We did our research, filtered through quite a few videographers and found Piece by Piece. We are really happy with our decision to book Piece by Piece. He and his staff are really nice and were easy to work with. He did a great job capturing our wedding and an even better job editing the video.

He's a perfectionist and worked really hard making tweaks to our video. He was very responsive during the whole process and was great about answering all of our questions as well as making any changes we requested. We would definitely recommend them!

Loved Peter and his team. He was so helpful in answering all our questions and concerns in the planning process. Peter was there before we even showed up at the wedding and was there long after the last guest had left. He is truly dedicated and passionate about what he does. We loved the video he created and he made all the minor tweaks we requested and provided wonderful suggestions to make it *that* much better. Our family and friends love watching the video as much as we do. It brings back all the wonderful memories and emotions of the day and makes us feel like we are right there again, reliving our special day. Thank you Peter!

Now that the wedding is over, the video that Peter put together for us is by far the best keepsake we have. The day of, he was there from the beginning of the make-up and hair application to the last dance, capturing every moment. I had guests who work in the film industry who commented that his equipment is the real deal - film quality.

The editing he did for the short version was phenomenal. I don't know how he got the music to go so perfectly with the action, but everything from the transitions to the credits is unbelievable - I keep wanting to rewatch it and I can't stop smiling. I asked Peter to make a couple of small adjustments to it and he did it without hesitation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Just check out his sample videos, they speak for themselves.

We came across Peter Kappes on the Knot and were immediately impressed with the cinematic quality of his films (many examples on his website). Not only was his work great but it also fit our budget so we decided to hire him for a summer wedding. Throughout the planning phase of our wedding, Peter was always available for questions and/or suggestions and we always felt super comfortable working with him. He did an awesome job of capturing everything we wanted on the day of the wedding and we did not feel overwhelmed with the presence of camera crew. We were also very impressed with his video and sound equipment. After the wedding we went through a few edits and Peter was always very attentive and made sure we got what we wanted. We are very happy with the end result and would highly recommend him to other couples looking to capture that special day!

Videography was highly important for my clients' wedding -- a top priority for them. I lucked out in finding Peter and Piece by Piece film. The quality of their work and the dedication and commitment to that quality, coupled with their flexibility to work within our budget was why my clients chose to hire them. We could've gone with another vendor who beat PBP's rate only by a little bit, but realized they put a limit to how much time they would spend editing the video, whereas Peter seemed committed to spending as much time as was needed to make his work, and thereby, my clients' video look as beautiful as possible.

The actual working experience with Peter is extremely pleasant. Very professional. Simply delightful and a joy to work with. I'd hire them again.
