Thanks so much Jim, you and the team did a fantastic job and I can't thank you enough for the amazing video and montage that you put together. I will be sure to recommend you to all my friends, I'm not surprised it has so many views, I have people I don't know stopping me in the street and telling me how incredible the montage is! We will treasure it for the rest of our lives!

Jim and Mark captured our wedding day in a striking, classy and heartfelt manner. The standard of their video production was second to none. As a result of their attention to detail and diligence we are left with everlasting memories of our wedding day to look back on time and time again. They beautifully captured ourselves our bridal party and our friends and family from the ceremony right through to the reception allowing us to see our wedding from an entirely different angle!
