  • Working with James was one of the best choices we made when planning our wedding. His work is amazing and we could not be happier with the finished film. He is talented, kind, responsive, helpful, and just as his website advertises...a total wedding ninja. We barely noticed his presence all day and yet he still managed to capture all of the special moments and put them together in a way that would make a stranger cry about the power of love. We had our video in less than 2 months following our wedding, which is an insanely fast turn around for this type of project, and the quality is unbelievable. If I ever come across another event in life that it is socially acceptable to hire a videographer to document...James will be my guy!

  • The best decision we made during wedding planning was selecting James Knightly Films to capture our wedding day. His attention to detail and willingness to get to know his clients is unmatched. James went above and beyond to see what moments we most wanted on film and our overall vision for the day. Seeing our highlight video brought us to tears as we were truly able to look back on such a special day in our lives. For years to come, my husband and I will be able to relive the wedding with our family and future family members.

  • I can’t say enough good things about James Knightly Films! From the initial phone conversation that we had with James to the finished product of our video, James and his wife Laura were an absolute pleasure to work with. We looked long and hard for an awesome videographer that would be able to capture the special moments of our day but do so in a contemporary and modern fashion (rather than the old-fashioned cookie-cutter videos!) Our wedding was on a Saturday evening in November at Atrium at the Curtis Center in Center City, Philadelphia. During the wedding, James and Laura blended into the background and went totally unnoticed while still capturing every part of our wedding. They are extremely kind, professional, courteous, and they worked extremely well with our photographers (which is a huge factor when picking a videographer!!!) We are starting to receive our finished products, and we are blown away by our trailer video, as well as our highlight film! We’ve watched both... Read more

  • James was wonderful to work with for our wedding on 10.18.14! I interviewed three videographers and from the get-go had a great vibe from James, plus I though he was priced very competitively given the quality of his films. In the months leading up to the wedding, he was prompt in responding to emails and flexible about switching our times around when we got closer to the day and our timeline evolved. On the wedding day, he and his second shooter did a great job managing our huge wedding party and getting the shots that perfectly captured our day --- I was blown away when I saw the final product. I can't recommend James more highly to future brides!

  • James was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was very professional and worked very well with my other vendors (especially my photographer!) I just received the final project. The video of my wedding captures all the excitement and emotions that made up such a beautiful day! James is a true artist and was a huge part of making this wonderful day so spectacular!!

  • James and Laura shot our wedding this past weekend and were absolutely wonderful. Throughout the entirety of the 12-hour day, they not only remained professional but also were so much fun to work with. They worked seamlessly with our photographers, as if they had been working together for years! They provided great direction during the bridal party photos and also managed to blend into the background during our reception. Despite their continued presence on the dance floor, many of our guests had no idea there was even a videographer there. We cannot wait to see what James and Laura put together for us, and would highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for an authentic and special film to capture their big day. They really were an absolute pleasure to work with.

  • We are so happy that we hired James for our wedding day videography. His professionalism was evident from the moment we first contacted him. James responded to our inquiries promptly and was proactive about communicating with us about our expectations before the day of the event. On our wedding day, James was friendly, flexible and accommodating to our schedule. The final product looks amazing! James captured all the important moments of the day beautifully. He truly has an artistic vision.

  • Where do I start? I can’t say enough wonderful things about James and his videography. My sister was lucky enough to have James capture her wedding on video two years ago, so when it came time for my husband and I to tie the knot, hiring him again was simply a given. Not only does he have this incredible, raw talent when it comes to cinematography, but his professionalism throughout the ENTIRE process--from initial contract to day of the wedding--was honestly unparalleled. After our trailer was released, I had so many people asking where we had found a videographer with such a natural eye for the camera. In fact, my friend already wants to hire James for her wedding next year! (One word of advice: act early—he books up fast!) In all honesty, I feel like so many videographers try to be too flashy when it comes to their work—making you re-enact certain moments to catch them with a certain angle, or loading their films with heavy filters to improve lighting and increase th...

  • If I could give more than 5 stars I would give him 100 in a heartbeat! I have worked in the bridal industry for 10 years. I have watched the cheesy cookie cutter videographers pass me by at countless other weddings. Not only is James Knightly a talented videographer but he is an artist! He loves what he does and it is so evident in his work. I met him while working a wedding about a year before my own. Immediately I noticed his professionalism, his calm, easy-going nature, and his ability to stay behind the scenes! I couldn't wait to get home and watch some of his videos. I already knew that I liked him a lot (and you do spend a lot of time with your videographer so you better hope he's cool to hang out with!). So I went home and watched all of his videos. Ok if videos of perfect strangers can make me cry I knew this guy was talented. I love that he captures the little moments, the things you miss on your own wedding day that you can now cherish forever. His style is absolutely amazing... Read more

  • James and Laura were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the first time my husband and I met with James in his studio throughout the months leading up to our big day and even after, we could always count on a quick and helpful response to an email question or phone call. James truly takes the time to get to know the couples he works with to figure out how to capture the little things that make such big moments. Not only are these two amazing at what they do, but they have fun doing it. If you have read James's bio on his website, he has been described as a camera-wielding-ninja. It's true. He is stealthy and you hardly notice his presence, but DAMN! When you see your wedding video, you're going to wonder how you didn't take more notice of James. What he captures is perfect. I can honestly say that a smile was plastered on my face the entire time I watched my 3 minute trailer, my 12 minute highlight film and even the clips of 10 hours worth of coverage. James and Laura are phenomena... Read more

  • My wife is a wedding planner and put quite a lot of thought into choosing the right person to capture the emotional roller coaster that was to be our wedding day. From the moment we reached out to James, we were dealt with in the most professional and courteous manner, which is a breath of fresh air in such a competitive industry. We both felt that we wanted to combine a conversational element into our video, so we could capture each moment in the realest sense. If you look at James’s work you will immediately see that he is an artist and a master of capturing people as they really are. He customized a package for our budget and our needs. On the day of our wedding, James and his wife were absolutely in the zone. First off, they are the sweetest, warmest people you will ever meet. They were full of smiles and oozed tranquility, which we both needed that day. They captured EVERY moment perfectly and we barely even noticed that James was there. He was like a focused whisper.

  • We could not have been happier with James! From start to finish, he was friendly, professional, and flexible. We felt at ease with him the first time we talked with him over the phone. He gladly worked with us to make sure that everything we wanted was included (we wanted a hybrid of 2 of the packages he offers). James was amazing on the day of our wedding - very easy to work with and integrated seamlessly into our day with our photographer, wedding party, and all the other various vendors. Most of our guests didn’t even know that we had a videographer until they saw the trailer and we almost forgot he was there most of the time, too! The final product was just perfect. It was more than we could have ever hoped for and everyone who sees it RAVES about how wonderfully it was put together (in addition to admitting that it brought them to tears)! We’ve watched the trailer and highlights film countless times since we got them and have a big smile on our faces each and every time. Ja... Read more

  • We were very pleased with our wedding video and highlight film from James Knightly Films. We loved being able to share the quick highlights with friends and family shortly after the wedding. The turnaround time was fairly quick and he even provided extra copies of the DVDs for our 4 sets of parents. He made our vision come to life and created a wonderful combination of moments from our special day. James was always professional and easy to work with. I would have liked to see more of the special moments in the full film (speeches, father/daughter mother/son dances) but I paid extra to have all the files so I at least have it captured. His prices were reasonable compared to others in the area, but it still ends up being a big part of the budget. But in the end it was all worth it. I am so happy to have our wedding memories captured for years to come!
