Video on Point
We had such a great time working with Grace and Ben for our wedding/engagement video. They are so down to earth, funny, and they make you forget you're being filmed. They have such fun and unique visions and then are able to execute perfectly. We were so happy to be able to have them document our wedding day for us and would hire them again in a heartbeat!Sent on 10/12/2019

Unique. Fun. Dope AF.
Grace + Ben are true gems. They love hard and give so much time for those minor details that make such a big impact in the overall production. My wife + I are not the most overly PDA kind of people. We are super weird but love that about us. They didn't force us to be something we are not. They didn't rush anything. They understood what was important to us. We hired them because they have such great personalities that balance one another out. Grace is super amazing in completely different areas than Ben and vise versa. My wife loved them because they made things simple and made her feel dapper AF. Hire them. Pronto. Especially if you want something unique.Sent on 10/23/2019

Flawless film & photo. Gives you all the feels.
Where to even begin? If we could give more than 5 stars we would. The amazing partnership of Grace and Ben that makes up Novae Film and Photo is absolutely top notch. During our wedding planning, we went back and forth trying to decide if we could afford video into our budget. After talking and working with Grace, it was a no brainer. And after watching a bunch of stranger’s videos on their website that they had already done and bawling our eyes out, we knew there was no body else we wanted to do so. From the beginning, they were extremely thorough and reliable. They always responded to my countless emails in the most pleasant ways. We started with engagement photos. We had never had professional photos done before but that was no issue with them. They made us feel extremely comfortable and guided us the entire time. Our engagement photos were SO BEAUTIFUL and got us so much more excited for our big day. Leading up to our wedding, Grace made sure we were on the same page with everything so that I (the bride) did not have to stress at all. There were some special moments I wanted captured and they made it top priority. On the day of the wedding, Grace, Ben, and their assistant they brought were WONDERFUL. And let me just tell you, the final products blew our minds. When I watch our wedding highlight video I still cannot believe its us! The quality of the film & photos are unreal. The song choice, the audio clips, the intimate moments, ALL OF IT was documented so perfectly in the film. I get the feels all over again watching it. Friends, family, and so many others have reached out to tell us how emotional it made them feel. The video truly did exceed our expectations. Also, when it comes to the photos they truly got it all. The colors and quality of the photos are absolutely stunning. Its almost impossible to pick our favorites to hang on our walls because there are just TOO MANY that are perfection.Sent on 10/14/2019
All in all, if you’re looking for a business that can do both film & photo FLAWLESSLY then look no further. SERIOUSLY. Grace and Ben are beautiful souls who will work their butts off for you and deliver the highest quality you could ever ask for. We love them and would choose them over and over again.
Novae Film and Photo's reply:Laura! This review is everything. Your words! They mean so much! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We cannot even begin to explain how thankful we are for you both and that you trusted us with such a big day in your lives. We absolutely adore the both of you and little Atlas and wish you all the best on this next chapter in your lives!! THANK YOU!
These guys are amazing!!! Their videography is cinematic to say the least! Both Ben and Grace have an amazing eye for detail and are incredibly creative in their work. I absolutely love getting photos and video clips back from them after an event!!! Also they are super wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!
I collaborated on a styled shoot with Reel Maine Co. and they are absolutely fantastic- professional, knowledgable, and all-around fun to be around. The finished movie they created from the day of the shoot was phenomenal. Highly recommend!
Maine Reel Company has a way of completely capturing the story that unfolds on a wedding day. Every moment they put out is filled with emotion, and heart warming moments. They are the most warmest people to work with, which completely translates in their work.
