    Highly recommend Life’s Reel!

    After seeing my husband’s brother’s wedding video from Life’s Reel, we knew right away we wanted to work with them for our own.

    I had an idea in my own head about how I thought the video might come together, but prepared myself that it wouldn’t go quite that way — and thats true, somehow Life’s Reel made it SO much better than I had even imagined! Their editing was the perfect combination of sweet and fun moments and a great selection of sound bites from throughout the day. It really told the story of the day so well. We absolutely loved that we could pick songs with a special meaning to us as the backtrack to the video too.

    Further to this, with our wedding date having to change three times, we appreciated how accommodating and flexible Brett and his team were; always with timely responses and great professionalism. We highly recommend Life’s Reel!

    Great photographer

    Our experience working with Life's Reel was fantastic. Brett was always quick to respond to questions or emails, even when I was a bit scattered and late to respond. On the day of, our photographer Daniel was wonderful. He was very easy to work with, friendly and sociable. Thanks guys!

    Same day edit and longer 10min video

    I was lucky enough to to find Life’s Reel through my best friend who got married a year before me. I saw the work they did for her same day edit and then later, a longer 10min video...and I was totally sold. The crew was super friendly and professional and I felt so comfortable with them around. Their attention to detail and the way they showcase the big day moments perfectly to your chosen songs is better than I could have imagined!! Very talented editing crew. Overall the videos were so amazing and I’m so grateful I have these treasures to look back on. I would highly recommend Life’s Reel, you won’t be disappointed!

    Best video ever!

    I have never been happier than to receive the most amazing video from Life's Reel! Steve captured every single detail of our wedding and created a video that really showed the emotion of the day. I would highly recommend Life's Reel to anyone considering getting a wedding video!

    Amazing videography - quality service, amazing to work with, and affordable!

    Having Life's Reel as our videographer for our wedding day was an absolute pleasure. Not only are their packages affordable, but the quality of their work is amazing. We looked at many different options prior to booking with Life's Reel and are so glad we chose them. Brett was super responsive to our questions and emails, and Henry was a pleasure to work with the day of. We are so in love with our wedding video, and have had many compliments on the quality of it. We also love that we will have all the raw footage from the day to look back on the speeches, and other parts of our day that passed way to quickly. We can't thank you guys enough for capturing our wedding day so perfectly and beautifully! For any couple contemplating hiring Life's Reel for your wedding day, they will not disappoint! Thanks again!

    (La La Land) Wedding Dreams Come to Life

    If you are looking for wedding videography, give Life’s Reel the chance – we highly recommend them to capture your special day! We were referred to Life’s Reel by our wedding planning team (Designed Dream) after having worked with them recently on another wedding.

    We met with Brett and another videographer, and in the end we chose to have Life’s Reel as part of our A-Team. Brett was great to explain the process, how we would be assigned videographers for the day who would shoot the footage and bring it back to the team to be edited. We had a great chat, Brett seemed down to earth and professional, showing us examples of past work.

    To help our decision, we viewed many wedding videos to decide what we wanted. We really loved the storytelling behind the edited videos produced by Life’s Reel – for us, their films provided a perfect balance of emotion and a genuine picture of the day/evening. We wanted our videography to capture the essence of our day, without too much dramatic effect but still have the perfect amount of polish to string the events of our wedding beautifully together with great music.

    Steve and Michael arrived promptly on our wedding morning, despite the rain and lugging their equipment up the stairs at our AirBnB. Michael hung out with the groom and the guys and Steve was with the bride and the girls throughout the morning. Both videographers were friendly and professional – never in the way, and seemed to work well with our photography team (Avenue Photo). I have to say, at some point Steve was sitting in the tub (true dedication!) to get some shots while I was getting hair and makeup done and was awesome chatting with me and my hair/makeup artist. It was really cool to have a fun moment with them laughing about the 90s/early 2000s, which really helped calm my nerves; much appreciated and set the stage for the day. Steve was great at giving us direction where he envisioned pivotal captures, whether it was me reaching for my dress, slipping on my engagement ring, etc. We found Michael was more quiet throughout, but we figured he was in the zone doing his thing. Often enough, we found that both videographers followed the lead of our photography team which worked nicely.

    A few weeks later, we received a note from Brett asking us for a song list that we would consider having for our wedding video. We were pleasantly surprised about 1 month after our wedding, with an email link to a mini cinematic cut that they created of our special day. It was FANTASTIC! The footage and edits were amazing, and what a great way to re-live the moments that made up our wedding. The footage is spectacular; we are so very excited and looking forward to receiving the longer cut. Thank you again so much with full hearts to Brett, Steve, Michael and the team for capturing these special moments! It was so fun spending the day with you and creating such beautiful memories to look back on. xoxo, Cristina and Patrick

    Our experience working with Life's Reel

    We would highly recommend Life’s Reel. To have a video of our wedding was the best decision. Brett Taylor and his team were amazing! Brett was prompt to respond to all our emails throughout the wedding preparation, very attentive to details and a pleasure to work with.
    On the day of the wedding, Nick Marlatt and Carson Haight were punctual, reliable and quiet as a mouse. We barely noticed they were there. As they worked around us, the wedding party, our photographer and all the guests, they captured for us one of the most important days of our lives. The final product by Steve was second to none and edited to perfection.
    For couples who want a video they will cherish for a lifetime we would highly recommend going with a company that you know will do a first-class job.

    We were very thrilled with our selection of Life's Reel as our videographer for our big day. We saw their work online and it truly speaks for itself. We instantly loved the shooting style and reached out to them with some questions. We got a reply from Brett who was very detailed in his response and very timely/responsive. We went back and forth via email a few times then scheduled a call to get some more information (we are the type that asks a LOT of questions before we book any wedding vendor!). Brett was extremely patient with us and answered all of our questions.

    The Wedding Day
    They exceeded our expectations on our wedding day. They knew exactly where to be and what to do, they stay out of your way and you barely notice they are there for the most part (which is what we were looking for - a very candid shooting style). The guys (especially Steve!) are extremely likeable and cool, and get along well with all of the guests (our guests loved them!) as well as the wedding parties. They stayed later than they had to and worked hard throughout the day to ensure we got all of the shots we wanted.

    We were so impressed with Life's Reel and can't recommend them enough for your wedding day. They sent us all of the raw footage very quickly after the wedding so that we could see all of the footage, and we are working with them now on the shorter edits. We are confident they are going to turn out great!

    Thanks Brett/Steve & team for making our day even more special and for doing such a great job capturing it!
