Jim from Pirates Lane was an absolute pleasure to work with. I originally had not budgeted for a wedding videographer and ultimately realized I would really regret not having video footage of my wedding. I am so happy I decided to hire Jim. He is extremely professional and responsive. Of all the wedding vendors I worked with, he was by far the fastest to respond to emails, which was greatly appreciated, especially in the final weeks leading up to the wedding. His footage is so comprehensive and included video and audio files I never expected! I know we will watch our video documentary for years to come and I am so grateful we have Jim's amazing footage to re-live our wedding day over and over again! He offers several different wedding packages, which are all very reasonable. Thank you so much for your hard work Jim!

Jim was spectacular! He listened to our needs, gave us an affordable price even though our wedding day was long and complicated, and was entirely professional from the beginning to the end. During the planning process, he helped us figure out what kind of products we wanted, what kind of style we liked, and listened to our needs for the day. He was quick with communication too! During our day he was unobtrusive and very polite to our family and guests. Somehow I can't believe he captured such beautiful footage because it didn't even feel like we were being filmed! And our final highlight film and video of our wedding was incredible - he hand picked the music, and included all the best parts of the day! We couldn't be happier with our choice!

I am extremely pleased with the video Jim Merchant of Pirates Lane Video produced for my daughter's wedding on June 22, 2014! The videography and sound are of the highest quality. Jim included all the content we wanted, plus much more. Jim was so unobtrusive (we and our guests didn't even know he was there), yet he caught everything from every angle. Jim's work far exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others!!

Your search is over! I could not have been happier with Jim and Pirates Lane Video and would HIGHLY recommend him. He truly blew away all of my expectations, and here's why:

When we finally decided to get a videographer for our wedding after the age old debate "to get one? or to not get one?", I admittedly aimed at trying to find the cheapest vendor possible, because all I really had wanted was video capture of our ceremony and our speeches (we weren't big into getting a super high production quality videographer, which based on my research, would cost us many thousands of dollars). During my search, I came across Jim and Pirates Lane Video. When I requested a quote, they were very reasonable and EXTREMELY flexible with creating a package that would best meet my specific needs. While I imagined I wouldn't be getting the most high-quality footage, purely based on my comparison shopping and assumptions due to how reasonable the quote was - I could not have been more wrong.

When Jim delivered us our video - he absolutely blew us away. The quality was as good, if not even better than the "high-baller videographers" we had come across in our initial search. It was breathtaking. He captured all of the perfect moments, had orchestrated the best music that perfectly aligned with stills on screen - it was simply incredible. Not to mention, Jim was the absolute BEST to work with. I never noticed him once at our wedding - he wasn't in our faces like videographers had been at other weddings we'd been too, yet the footage he captured made it seem like he was RIGHT there in the action. Based on the video, it looked like he had cameras going from a hundred different angles - yet I never saw one. He was so respectful, and so polite. After dealing with many vendors who took some time to get back to us, he was extremely responsive, and always positive and accommodating. After not wanting a videographer in the first place - he ended up being our absolute favorite vendor!

Best choice we ever made! Jim was easy to work with, gave us a great package (and price), and was very responsive to emails. Received our video and DVDs last week. We could not be more pleased. Great quality video of our special day and beautiful personalized DVD cases and discs. Thank you!!

My husband and I chose to go with Pirates Lane Video for our wedding video because the package that Jim put together was so reasonable and he was so flexible with the type of video that we wanted. Instead of a traditional documentary-style video, we wanted an extended highlights video. We got our footage this week and we could not be more pleased. Jim did an amazing job capturing all the important moments of our day and I don't think anyone even noticed there were cameras around. Watching our wedding video brought me right back to that day and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The DVDs that we received are perfect and even included some extra footage that we were not expecting. I would highly recommend Pirates Lane for videography! Thanks Jim!!

We found Jim as the videographer on our wedding day. Recall our experience with Jim, we believe it is the best decision we have made for our wedding. The wedding trailer and video both looks fantastic and pyrotechnic. We were all impressed by the great work of Jim and his co-workers. Definitely recommend to my friends and anyone who is looking for videographer. Excellent job!

Jim from Pirates Lane was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was super responsive and helpful in setting expectations for our video needs and wants. Day-of, Jim was what I would like to fondly refer to as a "video ninja". He blended into the day, was there capturing every important moment, but did so in the most unobtrusive and easy going way. Jim recently went above and beyond and delivered us an incredible trailer video of our wedding. His HD and video skills are truly beautiful and my entire family is so thankful that Jim was the person capturing these important moments that we'll relive time and time again. Can't recommend Jim and Pirates Lane enough!

Jim and his crew were such a pleasure to work with at our recent wedding. From the very first meeting we were impressed with Jim's manner and professionalism. He always responded right away if I had a question and I was very flexible in tailoring a package to meet our needs.
The day of the wedding he and his assistants were on time and very respectful and unobtrusive. People almost forgot they were there! :) While I don't have to full finished product, we were amazed at how well our preview movie trailer has come out, and we can't wait to see our full lenght film! We would highly recommend Jim and Pirates Lane Video.
