Angel and Bruce are so amazing and I'm so happy that we hired them for our wedding; it was the best decision we made. We hired them within 3 weeks of the wedding and they were so understanding and helpful. They were quick responding and we were in constant contact up until the wedding. They did not charge by the hour, they want to capture everything that encompasses the wedding. Angel went to a painting party that all the girls did Friday before the Rehearsal Dinner, Bruce went out golfing with the groom. They both came for the rehearsal dinner and then on the day of the wedding, they arrived at 8 am and left after midnight. They were fantastic! They contacted all our vendors and coordinated everything with them, they made awesome timelines that were helpful for everyone, and they contacted everyone doing speeches to give them pointers. We had an engagement session with them the day before the Rehearsal dinner to get used to the cameras; there is a lot of equipment and at first it was weird, but Angel and Bruce are so nice and fun that we felt very comfortable. I was apprehensive about hiring someone to record the wedding because I have been to weddings were they became more of a distraction since they wanted the best shot. Angel and Bruce were barely seen/noticed and that was really important to me. I am so looking forward to seeing their amazing film they are making for us! They thought of all the little details that when we look back will be some of the most important ones and they made sure to capture them. They made our day stress-free and I cannot thank them enough for everything they do!!!!!Sent on 07/18/2016

Derek and Angel are absolutely incredible. They were there every step of the way and helped to create a moment in time that will last forever. I proposed to my girlfriend, now finance, yesterday and Derek and Angel worked with me through the plans, to make sure not only would I get great camera cinematography as they told Kelly and I's story to the world but they helped make sure I did it right. They were completely open to all ideas and were always on my side whichever way we decided to go with the project. I would absolutely, highly recommend them to anyone looking for a weddings, proposals, or any other functions that would be worth capturing the moment in an exquisite manner. Flawless is one word I could use when describing their professionalism, willingness to work alongside you, and make sure you are getting what you hoped for. They went lightyears beyond what I even thought would be possible. I feel like a movie star! Not only did they capture the entire moment, they came to my house 3 times before then to capture more shots, make the story come to life and when I went to pick up Kelly before it happened, they were my right hand people setting up the rose pedals, making sure everything was in the right place, communicating with the hotel, etc. If you go with them in whatever project that requires telling your story and remembering it forever, they are hands down the best.Sent on 12/26/2015

From the day that they arrived they were 100% on board to make our special weekend the best time of our lives. They are so versatile and dedicated. Their 'all hands on deck' approach is really a testament to what drives them as a vendor. They want each couple to have something that will be a tangible embodiment of the most special time in their lives.Sent on 06/29/2015
They pitch in on so many fronts. They do their due diligence. They have incredible drive and focus. They are caring, sensitive to what is going on around them. We met as client and vendor. We left as friends. We can't say enough good things about them.

We hired Angel and Bruce a mere 10 days before our event and my goodness, did they pull through! They were on top of it for the entire 10 days prior; asking all the necessary questions, giving us all of the necessary information that we needed, etc. We did not meet them until the day before our wedding at our rehearsal, yet it felt like we were old friends! They were fill of excitement for us, and clearly had a ton of knowledge and experience in what they do!Sent on 12/31/2014
Thank you for pulling through for us (last minute!) and being part of our day!

Derek and Angel tailored their style to my wedding and blended with my photographers very well. They were able to capture every detail and I barely noticed they were filming throughout my wedding! The video they were able to produce was more than what I expected and for a very reasonable price. If you are looking for an awesome videographer, you need not look any further! They are very professional and a blast to work with!Sent on 03/02/2014

Words can't possibly describe how amazing it is to work with Derek and Angel. They put their hearts and souls into creating an amazing DVD for us with more video of our wedding day than I could have hoped for. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement - they completely blew any expectation I had out of the water...not only did they create an amazing film of our ceremony, but they created an awesome preview to the film (and a poster!), provided us with some beautiful still shots, and did everything with enthusiasm and professionalism. I cannot imagine how many hours they put into planning, editing, and perfecting the end result, let alone how much time they spent with us personally preparing for our wedding day. They love what they do - they are constantly looking for ways to wow their clients and to make sure that they capture every moment that makes each event unique and personal. Their enthusiasm for perfecting their craft is so special ~ I can't wait to see what is in store for them in the future. I feel very lucky to have had Bumblebee Films create such a special memory of our wedding day. It is truly the best, and most prized gift that we received.Sent on 01/25/2014

Serendipitous! How does that word segue into cinematography? To me the word means having a dream come true when you didnt even know you had the dream!Sent on 03/01/2014
Our daughter was chosen to have her wedding videographed by Bumblebee Films at no charge. Our affilitation with Derek Bruce came as a complete surprise, as we didn't previously know him and his wife Angel. They were in the process of forming their new business and were pursuing an event to videograph to fine tune and hone their equipment and expertise for further experience.
Circumstances being what they were, we knew that of our three grown children, this was to be the first and only wedding that we would be blessed to ever plan, celebrate, and hold in our hearts forever. A very special event indeed!
We became very impressed quickly by their courteous professionalism and flexibility. What we hold in our hearts today, is a special friendship. We were treated like V.I.P'S., and the follow up has been amazing by Derek and Angel. One could only wish that the proprietors of the wedding venue, the wait staff and management for the dinner, and the knowledge and preparedness (less!) of the D.J. were only half of the class of BumbleBee Films. The quality of their work is top-notch, and when you team that up with their heart-felt commitment, innovative ideas to make your event on film memorable with their kind personable touches and you come up with 5 stars everytime! I highly recommend this company.

We are beyond grateful for your time & diligence that resulted in something we didn’t even know was possible. Thanks to you, we now have the best day of our lives documented in such a way that we are able to truly relive it- with every viewing. It’s an amazing feeling. Thank you for proving us wrong ☺ in thinking we didn’t need a video hahaha.
Many many thanks –
