people are saying

he captured the love and the joy of our day

Videography was at the top of my priority list when I was planning, and I fell in love with James' work immediately. His videos are unique, cinematic, and shot beautifully. I had high hopes for him, and he completely surpassed them! He is a really great guy, which is huge since he's there for some really important moments, and an amazing videographer. The short trailer he did for us absolutely captured the fun, the love, and the joy of us as a couple and of the day itself. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!!



We are so grateful to have had him

When my husband and I decided to elope, we knew that hiring James was the first thing we wanted to do. James was so easy to get along with and fully embraced our crazy adventure. We are so grateful to have had him as such a huge part of our day. Our film is absolutely priceless to us and is something we will watch a million times throughout our life.



absolutely thrilled

We used Light Motion Studios for our wedding and could not be happier with how our videos turned out! James was so friendly and responsive via e-mail leading up to the date and was just lovely to work with on-site. His personality really puts you at ease. We were absolutely thrilled with our videos. The short, cinematic cut was unbelievable and perfectly highlighted our day. He really put a lot of thought into the editing and it showed! We have gotten endless compliments from friends and family who saw the video on Facebook. I would 100% recommend James to any bride-to-be - he's the best!



Let’s create something magical
