  • The best advice I could give any bride is to get a videographer (experienced in live-streaming) for your wedding ceremony. When we started planning our wedding in “pre-COVID” times, the need for a videographer wasn’t even on our radar. Looking back, it was by far the best, most meaningful, investment we could have made. As a bride planning a wedding in the midst of the pandemic, with so many uncertainties, I cannot emphasize enough the peace of mind that working with Jim, a trusted and professional, videographer and live-streamer, gave us. There were so many tears shed as many loved ones had to decline, and yet, being able to say each time with absolute surety: "it's okay, you'll still get to see me walking down the aisle live, you'll get to see everything like you were right there with us" not only gave me peace of mind, but also put so many others at peace that they could still (virtually) share in our special day. Leading up to the big day, given the ever changing restricti... Read more

    Hi Alex! Thanks again for having me, and for writing this amazing review! I'm happy that I was able to be a part of it, and that everyone was able join in from home and see you walk down the aisle!

  • Highly recommend this team! We were so grateful to work with an experienced, professional vendor who really knew his stuff, especially with our wedding livestream being so important (many of our close friends and family were unable to attend in person, so a good livestream with good audio was important to us. Thanks to the team at Pirates Lane, we were able to record and share our special day. The videos came out wonderfully, and the videographers were a professional and unobtrusive presence on our big day: arrived early, communicated promptly, delivered on all fronts. Would highly recommend to any couple!

  • My fiancee (wife!) and I were planning a small, backyard COVID-free wedding in less than a month and we were trying to find some way to include our loved ones who wouldn't be able to be there in person. We were so lucky to have found Jim on Google! We hired him to livestream our wedding. He was responsive, professional, very reasonably priced, and made our wedding perfect. Everyone loved the livestream! It was such a great investment and allowed us to include everyone we wanted to be a part of our special day. Even people who weren't able to see the ceremony live can watch the replay that is still up! We were able to give our guests an experience of being at the wedding and Jim captured beautiful and sweet and funny moments that we will have forever. It was amazing that he didn't need to rely on our WIFI and that all of his equipment ran on batteries. It wasn't just that he was unobtrusive, but he even helped enhance the experience for everyone. Our in-person guests were excited to... Read more

  • We hired Jim for our wedding on 12/20/20 and He was great. He was very professional and very helpful. He captured every detail of the ceremony and the reception. Even though I had contracted him for a specific time, he ended showing up earlier after I had found out that my fiance was going to get her make-up done earlier than planned. Thanks again Jim!!!

  • Jim was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I found Jim about 2 years ago (yikes!) when I was initially planning my November 2020 wedding. I was looking for a videographer that would make a timeless video for me and husband to look back on years to come. I didn't want this super dramatic and exaggerated video, I wanted someone to capture the true emotions and fun of the day in video form, and Jim did just that! When my wedding got postponed due to Covid, he was extremely flexible & offered us a special on our mini ceremony that we held this year. His pricing isn't even close to those in his field, but his work was even better in my opinion! He was super flexible and responsive to any concerns I had when it came to videoing our wedding with our elderly grandparents. Jim listened to my crazy request of wearing 2 masks during the ceremony to make sure my Nana was safe. Not only did he do that, but he made sure to keep his distance, and he brought a formal mask too to cover his other masks... Read more

    Thanks so much for the awesome review Felicia! I look forward to filming your next wedding (which still sounds weird, but that's 2020 for you). Talk to you soon!

  • Working with Jim was a breath of fresh air. Having to change our wedding from 150 people to 50 people was discouraging, my husband and I did not want to move our wedding date, so we thought the next best thing to do would be to live stream the ceremony for those who could not attend. From the first phone call with Jim, all the way through the wedding was a great experience. The live stream worked beautifully and was very easy for people to access. Jim also created a 40-minute video of our wedding and reception along with a 5-minute overview of our whole day. We love both videos so much!

  • Jim and Pirates Lane video was the perfect choice for our wedding videographer. We just received our wedding highlights and full film and could not be more happier with the results. It takes talent to edit that much footage and be able to capture the key essence of the day but Jim and his team did so effortlessly. We have received so much compliments on our highlights video. Aside from the final product, Jim was very easy to work with. He was very prompt with any questions we had and very professional. Overall, we highly recommend Pirates Lane Videos for your video needs. Between the great pricing, professionalism of Jim, and wonderful final products, you truly will not be disappointed. We will forever be thankful to Jim and his team for now we have something so special and beautiful to look back on from one of the most important days of our lives.

    Thanks again Chris, it was an honor being part of your special day, and a super fun wedding to work on!

  • It took some convincing, but 2 months before our wedding my husband and I decided to get a videographer. We decided to go with Pirate Lane Video and I am so glad we did! Their pricing was great for the quality of the video. They were very quick to give us a teaser trailer, and the full length video came out so good, I cried....a lot. I highly recommend them!

  • Jim was fantastic! He was easy to work with and incredibly low profile during the ceremony and reception themselves. So much so that it was difficult to even know he was there. We'd highly recommend him for any wedding!

  • I just wanted to share how amazing it was working with Jim from Pirates Lane. My husband and I got married at The Barn at Gibbet Hill in June 2017. I just felt like from beginning to end he was so professional and attentive to my needs and what I wanted to be included in my wedding video. At my wedding Jim had his own drone to take ariel shots of the barn which was amazing, he chose the most perfect music for my wedding video, and was so discrete at our wedding...you barely noticed he was there. It truly was an amazing experience and watching my wedding video still makes me cry. The highlight video was amazing, it was so perfect and included literally every moment that meant the world to me. If you were to ask yourself...will I really want a wedding video? The answer is yes, and it is worth every cent! Use Jim, you won't regret it. Cheers, Happy Planning.

  • 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.
