An absolute MUST!
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 restrictions, safety protocols and individuals’ comfort levels, there were so many times I’d ask myself, “Is anyone going to even see me walk down the aisle?!” but as fate would have it, and all thanks to Jim’s streaming capabilities, I truly believe that more people tuned in than we had on the original guest list! I also can't highlight enough the clarity of the video picture and audio. Everyone that watched couldn't get over how clear the imaging and audio was, making them all really feel like they were right there with us. When friends sent us screenshots from their TVs letting us know that they had joined in, I kid you not, the pictures were frame-worthy they were so clear! After the wedding, Jim sent us a downloadable copy of our ceremony video, and I can’t emphasize enough how much we have cherished getting to relive these special moments. We honestly cannot thank Jim enough for his professionalism, responsiveness, high quality services, added special touches and most importantly, the peace of mind that working with him gave us.Sent on 01/11/2021

Super professional, great livestream, transparent pricing, great experience.
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!Sent on 01/05/2021

Hiring Jim was one of the best decisions of my life
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 get texts from people in real-time saying that they were on TV!!
Jim is a really nice guy, seemed to care about the success of my wedding, and went above and beyond to make the day amazing. Hiring him was definitely one of the best decisions of my life and I highly recommend you hire him as well!Sent on 11/07/2020
Pirates Lane Video's reply:Thank you so much for the awesome review Patrick! I love that you included photos. It was great working with you both!!!
We can't say enough good things about Pirates Lane Video (THEY DID A VIDEO FOR US). Prompt, excellent equipment, gave us plenty of time, the editing and final video of our event was absolutely terrific. Jim Merchant is pleasant, easy to work with, and has an instinctive feel for what special moments to capture and include in your video. He works with you to make sure it's just what you want, and there are no hassles over making changes to get it just right. Even though you will have a rehearsed plan of events, you will be preoccupied with your part in it. Those special moments that just happen - Jim will spot them and make sure nothing special in your event will be missed. Jim Merchant of Pirates Lane will make sure that all is captured that you expected, and then make it into a video that has a creative and special quality that comes from his keen eye and instincts about how to make your video extra special. When we have another event, Pirates Lane is the only video service we'd think of hiring for the job. - Sharon Shea
