HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! We are obsessed with all of their work and have such amazing footage of our wedding day thanks to Josh and Kiera! They were so easy to work with from emailing and facetiming before the wedding to make sure they knew exactly what we were looking for! They worked so well with all of our vendors on the day of the wedding and were even willing to hike to a perfect spot to get the best footage. You guys are AMAZING!!!
Thank you, Kristin!!! You and Ryan put so much of yourselves into your wedding day, it was a blast to follow along with you. And I'll hike anywhere for beautiful views and a couple in love!
Kiera & Josh are a super-powered husband and wife team. The two of them were so comfortable to have around. They laughed with us, got to know our family and friends, and worked around the clock to get every shot. They were helpful, present and creative. Words cannot describe how great it felt to know that wherever we were, Kiera and Josh were there filming. Because of them, we could be present in the moment and rest assured that it was being documented! It gave us such great freedom to enjoy the day.
Thank you so much, Olivia! I love hearing that we allowed you to just be present on your wedding day, knowing that those moments would be captured for you to enjoy later. It was a joy to celebrate with you!!
WOW! Kiera and Josh. We have no words. Beyond incredible! You MUST go with these guys!!!! THEY ARE INCREDIBLE. Not only are they talented, creative, punctual, responsive, and wonderful to work with...but they also connected with our friends and family throughout the day and it was a our joy to experience. By the end of the day, they were like a part of the family. Their work is beyond creative and incredible...and they are a true joy to work with. Thank you Kiera and Josh for EVERYTHING!!! We will remember this experience forever!!!
This power couple have now become two of my favorite people! I can't imagine using anyone else for our wedding cinematography. From beginning to end we enjoyed working with them. They are fun, sweet and really thoughtful and kind. We talked through FaceTime a few times before the wedding day and felt that they really took the time to get to know us before the wedding. They blew us out of the water and delivered a perfect video in a very timely manner. Not to mention the beautiful packaging. Everything was well organized with them and they don't miss a thing. I never felt like I had to "micromanage" them as some brides feel they have to do, because they were beyond professional and on top of it each step of the way. I spent as just much on my photographer and our video is by far my favorite memorable is from that very special day.
Thank you, Morgan! Haha, I love being identified as a "power couple" - and when it comes from a fellow power couple, that really means something!
It is worth every penny. The professionalism, the craft and artfulness of Kiera and Josh make your day something to remember. I tell all of my friends to use them.
Thank you so much, Jill! It was such a joy to be a part of your day!
Josh and Kiera were awesome! They made an effort to get to know us before the wedding which really helped make us feel comfortable having them with us on our wedding day. Our video is beautiful! We love it so much.
Natalie, I am glad you love your video! It means so much to us to get to know your personalities so that we can capture a story that's true to you. Thank you for that chance, and for your kind words!
The talents behind The Adventures Of, Kiera & Josh were the most amazing filmmakers to work with on our (very unusual) wedding. We asked them to document not only our wedding, but our 20-person hour-long musical performance! They were amazingly flexible at making it work! Above and beyond doesn't even explain their commitment. Our wedding was in San Francisco and they came out from SoCal to be there for the venue walk-through so they could see the space and get a sense of how to capture the night. They even got a third camerawoman for our wedding and had her come to our dress rehearsal a week before to make a sketch version of the performance.
They were totally easy to work with, technically-savvy, open to feedback, and totally enthusiastic about our wedding! We seriously couldn't have asked for a more professional or caring (and cool!) film crew! If you are considering dreaming big for your wedding, I highly recommend booking The Adventures Of very far in advance!
Thank you, Rebecca! Both for your kind words, and for the opportunity to be a part of your INCREDIBLE celebration!! Not everyone could pull off such a unique, ambitious wedding with such a remarkable combination of dedication + talent + heart. Much love to you and Bryan!
The Adventures Of is an incredible team! You will NOT regret hiring them for your big day. Our biggest step was choosing a videographer -- we killed it! I could not be happier with the communication, the professionalism, and the absolute skill of capturing all the most important parts. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love our video!
YAY! Emily, you definitely put together a dream team for your wedding day, and you poured so much of your personality into every moment. It was AWESOME. Thank you for letting us tell your story!
This review is long overdue, but honestly, it probably won't make a difference for The Adventures Of because I have no doubt that Kiera & Josh's talent, personalities, creativity and work ethic will ensure that they will always have tons of work on their plate. TAO did the filmography and ran the insanely fun Slo-Mo Booth for our wedding in May 2015 at the Birch Aquarium in San Diego. We were referred to them by our wedding photographer and it was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding! Here's a tip: try to pick a videographer that your photographer has worked with so they know each others' styles and won't fight for the "best shots" - if not, then pick a super laid back and professional team like TAO, who can get along with anyone while creating a beautiful video to remember your special day by!
The videographer (and photographer) was the most important vendor for us because the day really did fly by and the only way I can remember and catch every amazing detail was through the creative and talented eyes of TAO. Style is of course the most important consideration and we just fell in love with TAO's, but TAO also earns top marks in every other aspect - Kiera & Josh are a super fun and easygoing couple and incredibly talented team, and the final videos they put together were perfection. They are also ninjas while filming - most of the time, I totally forgot that they were around because they got beautiful shots of all the important moments and details, but never disruptively or in a way that interrupted the flow of the day. Not to mention, they also set up and ran the SloMo Booth, about which all I can say is, every single party and wedding should have a SloMo booth. It makes an awesome & unique wedding keepsake of your guests and it is SO MUCH FUN!
The bottom line is, if you like TAO's style, book them ASAP - you will not regret hiring Kiera & Josh to perfectly capture every detail, highlight, and emotion of your wedding day!
Thank you so much, Val!! It was easy to create a beautiful, fun, and moving film when you and your husband are so genuine and open and fun to be around! I also love hearing that we are effective "video ninjas" :) I am so grateful that we got to celebrate with you!
Kiera and Josh are simply amazing! Most of my correspondence was with Kiera and she was on point. Her easy going attitude made her so enjoyable to work with and someone I really looked forward to sharing our wedding day with. On the day of our wedding, Kiera and Josh were so seamless and unobtrusive, I hardly noticed they were there. Once we finally watched our video, we knew they certainly had been there because they captured every little detail and wrapped it up into a gorgeous video we will cherish for years to come. They're professional attitude and design sense is totally worth every penny. Do not hesitate to hire The Adventures Of because your adventure is worth remembering with a beautiful video.
Thank you, Natalie!! I love hearing that - we are definitely there to observe and not direct the day, and it makes me so happy to know that we were able to bring you back to those moments!
We knew we had to have Kiera and Josh for our wedding in Kauai and man we were we right! They were one of the best investments we made for our wedding. Originally my wife needed to be convinced to include videography into our wedding budget but once I got her on a Skype chat with them it was basically love at first sight. We knew we had to include them. In the first 24 hours of receiving our video I watched it 5 times. I also cried everytime. The emotions they captured, thing that as a bride you never see on your wedding day we now get to see, and memories that we will always have thanks to The adventures of....
We love these guys! Stop what you're doing and hire them now. You will not regret it. We have an amazing wedding video and friends for life!
Robin & Renee
Renee, I can't express how grateful we are to have been a part of your wedding, and the incredible R2 Ohana! The celebration was a perfect reflection of the love that you and Robin share with each other and your awesome extended family of friends. Thank you!
Okay, where do I even start? This amazing couple has made our special even MORE special!
We first met The Adventures Of at our friends wedding; they were doing their SlowMotion booth. We were OBSESSED with the SlowMotion booth and just had to have it at our wedding. We contacted them (our friends had nothing but great things to say about them) and they were so professional and fun! Their communication is top notch. Their emails; quirky. Josh and Kiera put a smile on your face.
The attention to detail was so great. They sent us questionnaires to fill out to get to know us. Then they suggested getting together (kind of like a double date) to meet one another in person and really get to know one other. It was a blind date, but it was as if we had already been friends. Their just so damn likable and easy to get a long with.
These guys had such a long day at our wedding. We got married in a church in the morning then had a 3 hour break in between and then our reception. They were with us since the morning with the guys and girls getting ready all the to cleaning up at the end of the night.
Their slow motion booth is ridiculously awesome. If you don't know what a SlowMotion booth, well then….your missing out.
If you don't book The Adventures Of for videography and/or SlowMotion booth well then shame on you.
Love these guys!
Aww! Thank you, Angie! I will never forget your wedding - all of the heart and intention that you and Matt put into honoring your families and each other. You two really know how to celebrate your love!!
I don't know where to begin with this review, because I have SO many great things to say about The Adventures Of! We hired Kiera and Josh to film a Love Story video for us in addition to having them video our entire wedding day--hands down, it was the best money we spent throughout the entire wedding planning process! They are so professional, responsive, passionate, enthusiastic, and easy to work with! They made us feel like we've known them our entire lives and they added so much comfort, joy and reassurance throughout our entire wedding day. We are beyond IN LOVE with our two videos and feel so lucky to have our love captured on film for the rest of our lives. We watch our videos almost daily and love them more and more each time. If you are on the fence as to whether or not to book a videographer for your wedding, get off the fence right now and book Kiera and Josh! I promise, you will thank me later :)
Thank you, Chelsea! It was so fun to make your Love Story Film, and wonderful to get that chance to know you and Brian before the wedding day!
BOOK! BOOK!! BOOK!!! Jakfoto were amazing! They were recommended by my wedding planner, and I went on their website and looked at their work. It all looked good, but you never know how yours is going to turn out. I was not disappointed! From the second Keira and Josh walked into my hotel room while I was getting glammed up for my big day, we just clicked. They were friendly and despite the fact that they have been doing this for years, they are not at all jaded and genuinely seemed interested in us and excited about out wedding. Keira even gave some helpful tips when I was too fat to fit into my wedding dress!!! They blended into the background, and may as well have been members of the family, because it got to the stage where I did not even know that they were there. Despite their inconspicuousness when I saw the finished product it became clear to me that they were actually involved in the entire wedding every step of the way. I could not stop smiling/laughing/crying! I LOVE my wedding video and I guarantee that you will love yours as well if you go with Jakfoto. OK - I need to stop writing now, because I could actually write a book on these guys......
Aw, thank you, Eva! It was so easy to "click" and have fun with you! I am so glad that we got to capture all of the beauty and joy of your day!
Kiera and Josh filmed our wedding 8/17/13 at Bacara and they were just fantastic!! I can't say enough good things about them. In the beginning when we were signing our contract and discussing the details, Kiera was so detail orientated. She thought of everything and really cared about our wedding. The day of, there was nothing they didn't do!! Both Kiera and Josh are the sweetest people. We can't wait to see our video. I highly recommend Jakfoto!!
Thank you both so much! It was such a joy to be a part of your day and create a beautiful wedding film for you!
Kiera and Josh are absolutely amazing people and extremely talented at what they do. My husband and I had a Disneyland wedding, but live in Texas. A few months before the wedding, we met with Kiera and Josh for dinner and I immediately knew that I could trust them to film our wedding. They were extremely accommodating, professional, and responded quickly with any questions that arose. They also went the extra mile and followed our wedding party into the park to do some extra filming & fun after the wedding!! We highly recommend Kiera and Josh, and will surely stay in touch with them for years to come.
Samantha, I am so glad that we could put you at ease - wedding planning is stressful enough! :) Josh and I loved being your "tour guides" and capturing so many fun memories on your wedding day. Thank you for your kind words!
Kiera and Josh (of what is now The Adventures Of..) were one of the most exciting vendors to find. I fell in love with their quirky, charming video-style and when we spoke, it became clear that we had to work together. This couple works flawlessly together; they're super funny and so freakin talented- it's amazing they haven't been doing this for 20 years. Actually, perhaps it's because they're young that they have such a fresh, unique vision and are able to make such amazing videos.
They were super sweet, funny, and unobtrusive at the wedding, every dealing with them was totally professional and easy, and I was BLOWN AWAY by our video. I can hardly believe how absolutely perfect it is-- they captured every, single important moment and still managed to include countless tiny, precious, funny, spontaneous ones as well, all set to the perfect soundtrack. When I wanted super-8 but found out how expensive it was, Kiera threw on a filter that made parts of our film look just as authentically old-timey as I'd been hoping for. They're just completely awesome and I couldn't be more thrilled and moved by our final product.
Kiera and Josh, you rock and I feel incredibly lucky to have found you.
Lindsay, you are too sweet!! I'm glad that our quirky outlook was just your style, because it was a blast to document your wedding day! Thank you!
From the moment we first interviewed them, we knew Josh & Kiera were the ones we had to hire to videograph our wedding, and we were not disappointed. Not only were they extremely friendly and professional throughout the entire process, but they were very fun to work with, valued all of our inputs, and their communication was always top-notch. They were willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we would not only receive the best video and customer service possible, but most importantly relax and enjoy every moment of our wedding. They were able to integrate into our wedding seamlessly - we never felt as though the cameras were intrusive in any way. They are very sharp, creative, and willing to work with you to share ideas and come up with a masterpiece in the end. Don't believe me? I would suggest you sample their body of work. All of their videos are unique, and tell a different, beautiful love story, and they were able to capture ours in the most perfect way imaginable. We knew we did not want the typical video montage thrown together with little thought and a soundtrack, and this is where they delivered and came through for us. We would recommend "The Adventures Of" to anyone who wants to ensure that their wedding video is something to cherish, show their kids, and never get bored of watching again and again - for a lifetime!
Thank you, Phuong! It means so much to know that we have created something you will cherish for a lifetime.
Kiera was outstanding. Not only did she capture our wedding day with creativity and style, she also took the time to learn about us as a couple before the big day. Kiera was completely professional and yet made us comfortable enough to forget about the camera. I would absolutely recommend Jakfoto to anyone. They are reliable, talented, and caring. Thank you Kiera!!
Deciding to have Jakfoto document our wedding and love story was seriously the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding process. What we received from them is invaluable, they are the warmest, most amazing people!!! That's not even touching on their actual skills, which are equally amazing. Choosing them to be a part of your day is a choice you will forever be thankful you made!!
What can I say about Kiera and Josh that hasn't already been said before? They are awesome and so much fun to work with. My daughter and her husband loved them from the moment they met and only wanted them to do the video for their wedding! They really care about their clients and know how to put the pieces together to tell the love story of the couple.
We are still waiting to see the video they did for their wedding, but we know it will be absolutely spectacular! We watched over and over the videos they did for other couples and can't wait to see what they came up with for them.
I would highly recommend Jakfoto Films (Kiera and Josh) to anyone with any video needs because they are the BEST!!!
You will not hire a better wedding vendor than Jakfoto Films. This team is absolutely the best - incredibly hard-working and diligent but just a joy to be around during such an exciting and meaningful day. I am so glad I hired them, not only for the peace of mind they gave me on my wedding day, but also for after when they made sure we had all the moments captured on our video that were important to us.
Kiera did a great job capturing the best moments and editing it together in a beautiful package. I loved the voice over of my brothers speech that played throughout the highlight reel. She is a true artist and we were lucky to find her at the very last minute.
It's difficult to put into words ... exactly what Kiera & Josh have done for us. They didn't JUST deliver a wedding video, they created the most magical and timeless piece of art about our love. Rob & I flew them out to our destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and were so blessed they spent an entire week with us. The first time we saw the 2-minute Wedding Trailer, Rob & I both burst into tears of joy. Being wedding photographers ourselves, we always really valued photos, but their genius cinematography is something altogether different and is an absolute MUST for your wedding day. Over the last year, we've seen that Trailed probably 100 times (even more than the feature film!)… it's made so many friends, family & even strangers cry sweet tears and comment that they really feel they were right there with us.
The love, uncompromising attention to detail, talent, and work ethic of this extraordinary husband & wife team combined with their masterful skills and top of the line equipment = pure friggin awesomeness of infinite proportions. Plus, they are the SWEETEST and COOLEST people you will ever meet. If you've read this review - don't waste any more time and book them immediately! You'll see, it will be the best decision you make, other than marrying each other!!! :)
I can't say enough about Kiera and Josh of Jakfoto Films. They worked so hard on our wedding day and captured countless special moments that we will cherish forever. Our video is cinematic, stylish and full of emotion and love. They fit our budget perfectly and we would use them again for any future special events. We are thrilled!!!
