Exceptional Wedding Videography Experience with Bright Idea Films!

My husband and I recently got married, and we had the absolute pleasure of having Bright Idea Films capture our special day. From start to finish, Sarah and Ben provided us with an exceptional wedding videography experience that exceeded our expectations in every way.

First and foremost, their professionalism and attention to detail were remarkable. Sarah and Ben took the time to understand our vision and preferences for our wedding video, ensuring that they captured every important moment and emotion. They truly made an effort to get to know us as a couple, and it reflected in their work.

On the day of the wedding, Sarah and Ben seamlessly blended into the background while capturing all the significant moments without being intrusive. They managed to capture the essence of our wedding day beautifully, showcasing the love, joy, and emotions shared by everyone. The final video perfectly encapsulated the atmosphere and energy of our wedding, and it's something we will cherish for a lifetime.

The quality of their work is truly exceptional. The attention to detail in the editing process was evident, as they flawlessly integrated music, speeches, and candid moments, resulting in a masterpiece that we cannot stop watching. The video perfectly captures the essence of our special day, bringing tears of joy to our eyes every time we watch it.

Aside from their undeniable talent, Sarah and Ben were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were professional, friendly, and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. They were always prompt in responding to our questions and requests, ensuring that we felt supported and valued as clients.

Our wedding video was so touching and magical and we are so incredibly happy to have worked with such a creative team! We were truly in awe at how they so beautifully captured our day - every edit and shot was carefully thought out with purpose and intention.

The entire experience was truly wonderful! They were timely with delivering the video files, receptive to feedback, collaborative, and was always quick to respond to our emails. I highly recommend Bright Idea Films if you are looking for a team of talented professionals and masterful storytellers for your wedding day.

THANK YOU Sarah, Ben and Ahmed for telling our wedding story! Your videos will be a beautiful keepsake that we will treasure forever!

Meet the team

Sarah Simionescu
Sarah Simionescu
Co-Founder/Film Editor

Hi! I'm Sarah, the co-owner and primary editor of the Bright Idea Films wedding videography team!

I've been obsessed with film since I was a kid. In high school, Ben and I started competing in film competitions and working under and learning from wonderful and talented local wedding videographers. Since then, we have made our dreams a reality and begun our own business doing what we love most!

When you choose Bright Idea Films, you're choosing a team that's truly passionate about what we do. That is why we do pre-production consultations and revisions to ensure that you absolutely love your film. We can't wait to meet you and share what we love to do most!

Ben Janzen
Ben Janzen
Founder/Primary Videographer

Hey there! I'm Ben, the primary cinematographer and co-owner of Bright Idea Films. I've been passionate about film ever since I was young, and my love for it has only grown over the years.

I started making fun videos with my friends on Youtube, and eventually, I began making videos for local businesses and winning film competitions. However, my true passion lies in capturing authentic moments.

As the primary cinematographer at Bright Idea Films, my goal is to capture the magic of your wedding day. I'm not there to direct you in any way, just capture those special moments as they unfold. When you choose the Bright Idea Films team, you can trust that we go above and beyond, so you can relive your special day over and over again.

Sales & Client Care Specialist

Hey there! My name is Alicia, I am the Sales & Client Care Specialist with Bright Idea Films.

I have been friends with Ben and Sarah for many years so when they asked me to join the team I was thrilled! I have a passion for helping others and making the entire wedding experience one to remember.

Aside from Wedding Videography, I work as a Bridal Consultant at a dress store as well as an Admin Assistant with a team of Wedding Officiants. I understand that every aspect of wedding planning can be overwhelming, but my goal is to reduce the stress leading up to your wedding.

Bright Idea Films allows couples to capture a stress-free wedding day and create it into a keepsake to cherish forever, with an incredible team you can trust that your wedding video is in good hands :)

I can't wait to celebrate you and your spouse as you embark on this new journey together!
