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!Sent on 04/08/2018

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.Sent on 06/04/2018

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!Sent on 12/05/2016
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
