Best Decision I Ever Made! I was like most brides wavering on the idea of a videographer with so many other details and expenses on my mind .I am so happy I chose not only to hire a videographer but most importantly Emma Lynn Cinema. From the start everything was seamless about... Read More our exchange up until the delivery of the video. I can’t thank the team enough for capturing my day so beautifully. The moments on film, the music and video quality were all superb and I’m so happy I will have this video to look back on for the rest of our lives. I would recommend Emma Lynn Cinema to anyone considering a videographer. They were great to work with, adorable, had a wide range of packages and delivered great quality. Thank you for making my bid day so special!

Where do I begin with Emma Lynn?! She is seriously a blessing from above! She went above and beyond to assist us in making our engagement and wedding videos (yes, plural), so amazing and I feel so lucky she was by our side. She was attentive, thoughtful, and such a kind spirit,... Read More she made Amos and I comfortable. In regards to the videos, she would always give us a preview before publishing it and was so considerate of our suggestions, she created a film that was more beautiful than we can fathom. I have already recommended her to a few my girlsfrends who are planning to get married soon. If you haven't found a videographer yet, its because you have not come across Emma Lynn. She's seriously one of the best in the buisness.

Emma and her Husband are not only the sweetest couple, have incredible talent, but take their time in making every detail of your day a dream to watch over and over again. She took every moment I kept replaying in me head from that day and beautifully placed it all together in a... Read More treasured film. I knew that it was going to be a costly matter for us, due to everything a wedding entails, but 1000% I recommend having her film your most special day.

I wanted to use Emma as our videographer after loving all of her wedding videos that I saw on Instagram. I was so happy when I found out her prices were super reasonable too! She is so nice and a pleasure to work with. My husband really did not want us to get a videographer but... Read More I felt passionate about it, and after working with Emma he was happy we made the choice. Leading up to the wedding she was great to speak and plan with and understood that we did not want to feel like we were being filmed at the wedding, we wanted the cameras discreet. Emma and her second shooter (actually her husband) were so discreet! They use very small cameras, so it really just appears like they are photographers. She and her husband were both nice and friendly and easy to work with. Very calming presences to be around during day of wedding chaos. Emma made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and clearly had a great eye for capturing great shots, lighting, and angles. She also worked very well with our photographer which was much appreciated. We haven't received our final wedding video yet, but can't wait to get it. We chose not to pay for the 3 day post wedding video preview, which I regret, it would have been fun to get that! I definitely recommend using Emma for your wedding, and do the wedding preview video!

Emma was the best decision. We decided not to get a videographer to help with costs since we were paying for most of our wedding ourselves. 2 weeks before the wedding I started having major regret about not getting a videographer. My photographer recommended Emma and after... Read More looking at her work I knew she was the one. Her style of videography is gorgeous, romantic and whimsical.

She responded quickly by email and even called to explain all my questions I had. She was seriously the sweetest person ever, very patient and respectful. She worked well with my photographer. I never noticed her like you do some videographers. She was hidden when she should be to capture the most natural shots and then in your face for the obvious shots. My husband and I loved her and we have seen a short teaser of our wedding day and are in love. We can't wait to see the whole thing. She has many priced packages to work with all budgets. She stayed so calm and works very efficiently so the whole day ran smooth!
