"I don't know that there are enough words to describe how awesome and talented James and Kate are, but I am going to try. From the beginning I was a nervous bride with a million questions. James spent almost an hour on the phone with me patiently explaining what their company had to offer. I was so impressed with his professionalism and knowledge that within a day I had called back to book both photography and videography with Beautiful Life Films. We did an engagement session with James and Kate, which my husband and I were nervous about. They were so easy going and put us right at ease. By the time our wedding day came I had loved the engagement pictures and corresponded with them so much that I had complete confidence in their ability to capture the day. The pictures are flawless and exactly what I hoped for. Watching the video instantly transports me back to the most perfect day. Some how they managed to portray all of the emotions, excitement, and love in the best way. Thank you, James and Kate, for being so wonderful to work with, and for giving us tangible memories we will cherish for a lifetime!" --Cayla + Joey

"If James is available on your wedding date....BOOK HIM! No need to look farther. We could not be more pleased with his work. Our highlights video is amazing and the full video is a perfect way to look back on our big day. James and his assistant (his wife in our case) were very discreet and professional. If you are contemplating hiring a videographer bite the bullet and spend the extra money. With James you will not be disappointed!" --Amanda

"We decided (extremely) last minute (sorry, James) to have a videographer at our wedding and we are SO thankful that Beautiful Life Films had our date available (it was their ONLY date available in April, too, so book early you guys!!). People say that you never watch your wedding video again, but that's completely not true. Even if you're not the type of person who will watch the whole ceremony over and over, Beautiful Life produces a highlight film (>5 minutes) that captures parts of the entire day. We couldn't be more pleased with their work — and I work in media production, so I'm a hard sell on quality, value and overall video cohesion. Thanks to Beautiful Life for capturing these moments we will cherish forever! If you are on the fence about hiring a videographer, definitely hire Beautiful Life — these people will not disappoint." --Rachael + Josh

"Beautiful Life Films was everything we imagined and had dreamed about as a videographer! Professionalism was beyond compare, but most importantly they were FUN! Thank you for making my dream wedding not only a memory, but something we can relive! I would highly recommend to anyone!" --Kelly + Jordan

"I just finished watching the wedding film, and there are not enough accolades!! It was everything I wanted and more. Thank you so much for so beautifully preserving our memories of the BEST DAY EVER!! What you do is more than just photography and videography. You give your clients a priceless gift - one that can never be replaced. Don’t ever forget how important and cherished your work is. Thank you so much for all the hours and hard work you put into these photos and videos. They will be treasured always. I speak blessings over you, your family and your business." --Denise, MOB

"James and Kate made one of the most significant days of our lives something we'll be able to treasure forever. They were on time, professional, creative and listened to all our requests. Since we eloped they also served as our witnesses! The day turned out to be perfect and they deserve credit for helping make that happen. Thank you!!!" --Rob + Tammy

"We cannot thank James and Beautiful Life Films enough for the creation of our wedding video. My husband and I both agree that it was one expense that was priceless, and would recommend it being a part of anyone's budget. James did a wonderful job capturing the moments of our special day that had flown by so fast, and now we get to relive it any time we want. We were speechless with the quality and outcome of our video, and James was a great person and professional to work with. We highly recommend Beautiful Life Films for your wedding video!" --Ashleigh + Adrian

"Best experience I've ever had when hiring a photographer! James was fantastic! Very professional, explained everything very well. Provided a couple options to fit our budget. The day of our wedding, James and his wonderful wife were on time, professional and creative! I had some annoying guests with their phones, James handled it perfectly! Highly recommend them!" --Melissa + Sam

"James and Kate captured our wedding so perfectly! James frequently reached out to me during the wedding planning process which was a huge help since there were endless this to keep track of leading up to the big day. He understood exactly what I wanted and throughout all of our communication it was clear he was going to be able to capture the 'look' and feel of the day. It was amazing having that assurance! They were so flexible when I requested to extend their hours so they could capture more of the wedding festivities. The way the video was put together takes me right back to how wonderful and special the whole wedding day felt. James and Kate are true professionals. I'm so thankful to have a beautiful video to look back on and personally believe the quality of their images and creativity in how the clips were pieced together is above and beyond what you will get elsewhere." --Geanie + Anil

"Wonderful experience!! Beautiful product, timely, and very pleasant to work with. Thank you!!" --Sara

"James and Kate were lovely to work with--equal parts present and unobtrusive. So many videographers we looked at provided either too much or not enough documentation for an exorbitant amount of money. Beautiful Life provided exactly what we wanted (the full ceremony coverage, some footage from the reception, and the rehearsal dinner speeches) in a simple and lovely format. We also included a wedding trailer in our package, which is not something I initially thought I'd want or need, but it was totally affordable as a part of Beautiful Life's package. It's turned out to be a great way to share our wedding video with family and friends. One friend told my father after seeing our trailer "whatever you paid this guy, it wasn't enough." Suffice it to say, we love Beautiful Life films. The quality is incredibly professional without being stuffy or overly artsy, and James and Kate are such pleasant people to work with and have around on your wedding day!" -- Emily Shea 

"James and his wife are a delightful couple, and so much fun to be around! These personalities are so critical on a wedding day, because it makes the bridal party, planner, and attendees much more comfortable and happy. As a result, our wedding video showed the happiness and emotions of the day, and no one was "worried" about being on camera. We could see everyone at ease, and that is worth everything. Having video is a great bonus, because honestly I will probably forget what I said in my vows years later. It will mean a lot to see family and friends, especially as years change people and sadly people pass away. We have those memories and feelings forever. The final video was lovely, high quality, and well edited. James completed everything in a timely matter, and truly created a product that fit our personalities. The price is fair, and I highly recommend anyone working with this vendor-you won't be disappointed!" --Sherri + Zack

"I truly enjoyed working with James and Kate. From the beginning, they were easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, they both were very professional and fun. They were discrete while filming. Many of my guests didn't even realize we were having the wedding recorded. The highlight film was a perfect compilation of the best clips from the day. The wedding DVD was great as well! They have a talent for filming the best shots and James edits to make a classy video that we will actually want to watch again and again. I am so happy I was able to work with them at my wedding. I highly recommend them for any event you have." --Kristi
