10/10 would recommend Life's Highlights for both photography and videography!
As soon as we saw April's (photo) and Scott's (video) sample work, we had a feeling they were the one. I love the natural colors/lighting and the emphasis on capturing the emotions of the day. After our in-person meeting, we felt they truly listened to our vision and asked us questions that we didn't even think were important at the time. It was clear they cared about our wedding as much as us. They even sent special reminders and wedding tips throughout the planning process which we very much appreciated! On the day of our wedding, April and Scott were invaluable. They worked like ninjas to capture so many special, fleeting moments. In addition to April working wonders to get our dog to pose for photos and Scott literally running to not miss a beat, they handled a few hiccups behind the scenes that could have thrown off the entire schedule. I did not realize how critical they would be, but I am extra grateful we hired April and Scott. Our photos and album are absolutely stunning. Life's Highlights has the expertise, compassion and commitment to make your wedding special and memorable.Sent on 09/19/2020

Simply The Best
April and Scott are simply the best. We were having a very hard time finding a photographer, but got a bit of luck when our venue featured photos from Life's Highlights on their social media pages. Once I saw the pictures, I knew this was it. I showed my fiancé immediately and he agreed. I was so happy when I found out they were free on our date and after a quick video chat, the decision was made. And to be honest, hiring Life's Highlights was one of my best wedding planning decisions. They are not only incredibly talented, but they are the nicest people you will ever meet. The photos came out perfect - they are just beautiful. They made to sure to get all the shots we wanted in addition to other great photo ops that they came up with throughout the night. They made sure to get all of the perfect shots without being invasive. All of our friends and family kept telling us that they were the kindest and most professional wedding photographers they have ever encountered. I cannot recommend them enough. They are amazing people and if you hire them, you will have incredibly beautiful photos to remember your special day forever.Sent on 02/23/2020

The best ever is really an understatement! April and Scott were phenomenal. I could have not asked for a better photographer! From our engagement photos to our wedding day they were there answering any questions or concerns and helping in any way they could. April is so sweet and truly amazing at what she does. I was so nervous about picking a photographer but as soon as I FaceTimed with her and her husband, I knew right away I was going to choose them. My pictures turned out so beautiful and I have had nothing but compliments about how my photographer did such a wonderful job. I would definitely recommend them, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 06/06/2019
Life's Highlights's reply:Kayla, you are too kind!! Thank you so much for the kind sentiments. Your wedding day was amazing, and your photogenic beauty made our job easy :)

Best decision ever!
I was completely blown away by our wedding video through Life’s Highlights! Scott did an incredible job and it’s something we’ll cherish for many years to come. From the planning and preparation stage prior to the wedding day, to the actual day itself, Scott was very intentional and efficient with his overall process. It definitely put my mind at ease among the various deadlines I was handling on my end. The end result was the most stunning and personalized video of the best day of our lives! I highly recommend Life’s Highlights to anyone who is looking for a videographer. It was absolutely one of the best wedding planning decisions I made!Sent on 06/13/2019

Timeless video that brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it!
It has taken me months to write this review because I have had such a difficult time writing and re-writing to make sure it accurately captures how truly incredible Life's Highlights was for our wedding day. I knew we had to work with Scott and Life's Highlights for our wedding video when I couldn't get through a single video on their website/vimeo without happy crying from how jaw-droppingly beautiful every single video was. We saved and pulled money from other parts of our budget in order to include Scott in our wedding vendor team, and I could not be happier that we did.Sent on 01/03/2020
On our first call, Scott more than answered all of my questions, thinking through each step along the way. Leading up to the wedding, we received emails each month from Scott and his team with insights to think about, different tidbits from their own wedding, or other ways to make the most of our video. These insights (ranging from encouraging us to write our own vows to remaining authentic to us in our dessert choice) were not only incredibly helpful, but kind and thoughtful, and making me feel calm and confident that our the video would capture all of the months and months of work that had gone into each detail. Ahead of the wedding, we had both written and phone conversations to talk about what was important to us to capture during the day, the moments that we had to have included, the look and feel we wanted from our video, and to talk through all of the logistics of the day.
When it came to day of, Scott made me feel calm and taken care of. He arrived the morning of the wedding mid-breakdown over the flowers showing up in completely the wrong color, 2.5 hours into hair that just wouldn't come together, and the bakery calling to tell me the wrong cake was en route to my wedding. At the peak of my wedding day stress level, Scott gave me the time and space to get things (and myself ) together, instead starting with filming other details. While a few of my vendors made me feel overwhelmed or rushed, Scott was kind and calm. Once the wedding began, I quickly forgot about the mishaps of the morning, and enjoyed the day, with Scott, our photographer, and other vendors faded to the background.
Looking at the videos now, I have no idea how Scott managed to be everywhere at once. He was able to beautifully capture almost every detail of the wedding, all of the guests having fun, and most importantly, the small moments my husband and I, and our families shared on that day. Our friends and family regularly text us to let us know that they decided to rewatch the videos yet again just to relive the day, and tell us how beautiful the videos are. I now look at our video among the videos on their site, and still can't get through a single one without becoming teary, and feel so lucky and happy that we chose Life's Highlights for such an important moment in our lives. Thank you thank you thank you, Scott !

The most incredible experience ever!
Scott and April are absolutely incredible. Thanks to their amazing work, we will forever have the memories of our wedding day. They were so much fun to work with and we couldn't be more thankful! Their work speaks for itself. AMAZING! Will recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for photography/videography!Sent on 04/12/2019

Nothing less than perfect
You can’t go wrong with Life's Highlights. They were very responsive, professional, and creative throughout the entire wedding planning precessions. We used them for both our engagement and wedding photos and videos. From our enegagement on the beach, to walking down the aisle, to dancing the night away at our reception, they captured it all! The photos turned out so beautiful and natural. I swear they were like ninjas, half the time I didn’t even know they were filming or taking photos. They thought of many different photo ops throughout the night and would steal us away for a few mins to get a few shots. By far one of the best decisions I made while planning our wedding was hiring them!Sent on 12/12/2018
Life's Highlights's reply:As our first couple who hired us to capture their wedding story from start (proposal) to finish, we absolutely could not be happier with our experience working with you. Thanks so much for the kind words!!!

Our experience with Life’s Highlights has been absolutely phenomenal!! We could not be happier with the service they provided!
Our experience with Life’s Highlights has been absolutely phenomenal!!! They went above and beyond to provide a service that is high quality and made us feel like they really care about their clients, which is so hard to find these days. Every step of the way they communicated very clearly and made us feel comfortable with all that they were going to do the day of! The turn around for the video was so fast that it shocked me! You can’t get any better service than what we’ve had with them. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a exceptional business to work with. We are overly thrilled with how the video turned out and so thankful they were the ones to capture our special day. They were by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!Sent on 12/17/2018

St Pete beach wedding - rain and happy tears
To put it simply – Scott and April are absolutely fantastic. My husband and I had both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures taken by them. April spends quality time getting to know you as a couple and what your expectations are for your big day. Unfortunately, it rained on our wedding day. As I sat in silence disappointed that we wouldn’t get the pictures I’d hoped for, April talked with me and reminded me of the sentiment I shared with her – I wanted to wear the dress, drink champagne and marry the man – everything else would be a bonus. So instead of surrendering to the weather, April insisted we go outside to see if the weather would be calm enough to get a few shots. Thank god for her suggestion because we got some spectacular pictures in between the bands of rain!!! I also wanted to get a group picture of all of our guests. So to kick off the dancing, April corralled everyone onto the dance floor and stood on top of a chair to get the shot. We managed to even get our 90 year old grandmother in the picture and it is hands down a memory to last a lifetime.
In addition to the pictures, Scott’s videography of our day was truly priceless. We purchased the wedding trailer, and I am so thankful we did. They managed to intertwine the most meaningful moments into a 4 minute video, artistically marrying the best parts of our day. The video still brings tears to our eyes, even after watching it for the 100th time. My parents have showed everyone who asks about the wedding the video and the responses are a resounding WOW. I can’t begin to say enough nice things about not only their work but the team in general. I highly recommend using them for your big day! THANK YOU GUYS!!!! – The Cooks

Life's Highlights's reply:Oh Kristin, you are too kind!! Honestly, when weddings run into unforeseen difficulties (like torrential downpours), we often learn more about those couples, and how they will handle the bumps along the road of life, than we do when wedding days are "perfect." What we learned about the two of you that day is that you will take what life gives you in stride and make the most of it! This is a really important character trait in a marriage, and you guys clearly have it! We so appreciate the opportunity to capture your big day!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Scott and April with Life's Highlights did an absolutely AMAZING job capturing all of the special moments of our wedding day! Not only are our wedding photos so, so beautiful, the professionalism that we received from Scott and April from the moment we first met over Skype (we were a long distance couple, living in Hawaii and getting married in Florida.. yikes!) is unparallel to customer service we received from other vendors.. & while planning a wedding can be stressful enough, it's safe to say that we appreciated this the MOST!
Scott and April, the work that you two do, capturing such beautiful moments, is the most special gift you could have given to our families and to others. We will look back on our wedding photos for years and years to come, remembering these moments with some of the most important family and friends, from all over the country, that we've ever known and loved. Our only regret is that we now live in NC while Life's Highlights is in FL! Thank you both so very much :)Sent on 12/16/2018
Life's Highlights's reply:Thank you so much Katie!! We too wish you lived in Florida so that we could work with you again. Hope to see you at a friend's wedding sometime soon :)

Breathtaking final product
The biggest thing I looked for as a bride was quality and professionalism and Life's Highlights outdid both categories. Meeting with them from day 1 and working through questionnaires was a breeze. I felt comfortable that they understood the vibe/theme of the wedding and what was happening. The day of they were so good at helping put me at ease while still blending seamlessly into the background to capture amazing shots. The final product brought the emotions of that day back to mind and my husband and I were in awe of the videos we received. In one of the videos Scott included an instrumental of a song he heard me mention during my prep time that had a lot of meaning to my mom and I and he included it in the prep video! I was shocked when I watched the final product and heard it!! This team truly pays attention to every detail! I even had co workers who had seen the video tell me they were crying in their cubes! Which means that the video truly captured all the emotion of that day! I am so thrilled with the final videos and I cannot wait to watch them throughout my life!Sent on 01/17/2019

Could not be happier!
If you want the absolute best wedding photography and videography experience, do yourself a favor and book Life's Highlights. They are professional, knowledgable, patient, and took the time to get to know us and what we wanted to capture on our wedding day. They are the nicest people and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I barely even noticed they were there at the reception yet they captured everything! I could not be happier with our experience and would recommend them to everyone for their wedding.Sent on 12/12/2018
Life's Highlights's reply:What an amazing emotional wedding Taylor!! Thank you so much for the kind words. We share your feelings, as we could not choose a lovelier couple to work with :)

Scott and the team at Life's Highlights is absolutely incredible! I had seen a wedding highlight film of his work years ago and knew when it came time for my wedding I wanted to use him as well. Scott is so easy to work with and quick to respond to emails. Our wedding highlights film was so amazing!!! We got so many compliments on it from all our family and friends! All of the special moments from our day captured into one highlight film and we are able to continue to relive those memories from our big day. To Scott and the entire team at Life's Highlights, thank you for so perfectly capturing those special moments from our big day!! We will cherish them forever!Sent on 10/07/2018

Scott and April were recommended to us by a friend as several of her friends have used them and had rave reviews. When looking at their website I noticed a friend from high school and they had rave reviews too. They are fantastic! They are professional yet approachable, they Facetimed with us so we could get to know each other better prior to signing a contract. We loved that as it makes the day of even better. They were so friendly that when they heard of our pizza making blunders, they sent us a video of how they make pizza and it worked great!Sent on 06/26/2018
The parents of the groom ended up using them too for the rehearsal dinner. It was great to see April’s friendly face for Rehearsal and Wedding. The best part is that April is incredibly sweet and calm, but forceful enough to deal with my loud and funny family. We had some crazy weather coming in so our post-wedding photos were rushed with the whole family and she did a fantastic job, I still can’t believe how great they are!
They respond quickly, provided our wedding photos quickly after our wedding, including one in advance for our thank you cards. We were able to keep all our photos and they provided prints at a discounted rate. We absolutely loved them and would hire them for any event! I’m pretty sure my husband wants to hang out with them if we are ever in Tampa to talk travel hacking with.
Maggie · Married on 06/17/2017
About a month before our wedding, we decided to hire a videographer. We were on a limited budget and only wanted to capture the key moments - ceremony, dances and toasts. Scott created a package for us that perfectly fit our needs and even gave us a discount. Our wedding film was beautiful. We're so happy we decided to work with Life's Highlights ad would highly recommend them!Sent on 09/30/2017

From the first video intro call, to the months leading up to and on our wedding day, Scott and April were nothing less than amazing. I knew right away that I wanted Scott and April to capture our wedding as they were easy going, friendly, and extremely responsive right off the bat.Sent on 12/08/2017
Throughout the entire process, they were so friendly and willing to help in every way. It was so reassuring not having to worry about anything and knowing that they were on top of every single detail.
Scott has a sense of calm and attention to detail that is uncanny and really shows through in his work. Our video came out to be a work of art and everyone loves it! In addition, working with April on my wedding day was such a blast. You are with your photographers throughout the whole day and I (as well as my entire bridal party) truly enjoyed working with April. The photos are stunning and I am always receiving compliments on them!
After the wedding was over, Sammy and I actually both mentioned how fun it was to work with Scott and April and how it really was a huge part in making our day so wonderful.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting so much care and thought into our special day. We can't thank you both enough!

Hands down the best decision we made in a vendor for our wedding day. April and Scott are beyond amazing and I seriously recommend them! Not only is their work incredible, but their all around character and personalities make everything that much more fun. They go out of their way to capture the best shots and really care about what's important to you that you really want to have captured. The second April got to the hotel room where I was getting ready I felt like she was completely there for me. She really takes care of her brides! Use Life's Highlights...you won't be sorry!Sent on 03/09/2017

April & Scott were beyond amazing! Life's highlights did the video for our June wedding. My husband & I are so glad we got to have the privilege of working with Life's Highlights. The first time we met Scott he was genuinely interested in getting to know my husband (finance at the time) & me. It's obvious this isn't just a "job" to them. April & Scott are so very passionate about what they do & it shows! On our wedding day April & Scott came prepared & ready to work! & honestly I don't even know how they captured every detail of our wedding day, because I never noticed them lol. If you're looking for an amazing videographer to capture your special day, then you cannot go wrong with Life's Highlights! They certainly exceeded my husband & my expectations ! :)Sent on 08/16/2016

We are so happy to have hired Life's Highlights as our videographers! Scott did an amazing job!! Very professional and responsive. Originally, my husband was concerned that he would have a camera in his face the entire evening - that was NOT the case at all!!

We were thrilled with how everything turned out. Thank you Scott for everything!!Sent on 05/16/2016

Scott and April provided the videography for my wedding. From the initial emails and meeting, I knew that I wanted them to be a part of our big day. We had a list of multiple video vendors we were going to meet with, but after meeting Scott and April, we did not meet with a single other company. Throughout the wedding planning process, Scott would email me fun countdowns and wedding planning tips along the way. It was comforting to know that even though we would not really begin working together until closer to the date, he was still thinking of us!Sent on 02/16/2016
As it got closer to our wedding date, Scott sent me a very detailed survey to fill out about every single aspect of our big day, so they did not miss anything. They were very flexible on scheduling changes as the timeline shifted once the day got closer and final decisions were made. Scott and April arrived early and stayed later to make sure they did not miss a single moment of the day.
Our wedding was an outside ceremony on a very windy day, Scott and April made sure that everyone was mic'd, so they did not miss a single line during the ceremony due to the wind. It was difficult for them to catch our readers since they were not mic'd, but they made sure to pull them aside and have them rerecord their reading to make sure it sounded perfect on the video. This kind of thoughtfulness is exactly what I wanted when hiring wedding vendors. Wedding vendors who did not realize an issue after the fact when editing, but instead noticed it, took care of it and no one knew. I would not have even known they rerecorded the readings had one of the readers not told me.
When we received links to all of the videos included the wedding trailer, I was blown away. They captured moments that my husband and I hadn't even noticed. It is so great to be able to relive our wedding day with the incredible video shot by Scott and April. They were incredibly professional, easy and super fun to work with. Highly recommend!

When we planned a 100% outdoor wedding we new rain was a risk. When it monsooned on our wedding day we understood that things could have really gone south. Scott and April understood the urgency and reacted fast. They kept us calm and made sure we got all the shots we wanted in between raindrops. Their professionalism surpassed our highest expectations and their efficiency was unparalleled. Their energy was perfect and we are incredibly grateful for the choice we made. We can't wait to see the finished product!Sent on 01/11/2016
