Films by J was recommended to us and we are SO happy we were able to have J capture our wedding! After chatting with J and watching some of his work we knew immediately he was the guy! He is so incredibly talented and blew us away with our vide...
o! I’m embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve watched it and cried. We have received so many compliments from our friends and family. He captured all of the key moments and was able to cohesively tie it all together. There’s nothing we would change and forever grateful we’ll have this video to watch for all the years to come. Initially we were on the fence about including the drone and raw footage, but added it a couple of months before the wedding and it was the BEST decision. Being able to rewatch the ceremony, introductions, first dance and speeches is something we’ll forever cherish. J even captured our reactions throughout the speeches, which was so much fun to rewatch. Throughout the entire process he had great communication and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. J had an assistant and 2nd shooter with him the day of and they were so much fun to work with! If you are thinking about working with Films by J, stop thinking and hire him! He is worth every penny and we promise you will not be disappointed!!

have worked with some of the best wedding vendors in Central PA and a few that are not so good. So when it came time for John and I to plan our own wedding we had a long list of vendors to consider. You could say I am extremely picky and quite opinionated; I have seen a lot and knew what I liked and wanted. We wanted a videographer that would be able help us preserve the memory of one of the most important days of our lives but also captured the detail shots so that I could use the footage to promote my business. Jarrett was right on task, he captured everything we wanted and more! If you are looking for a videographer to tell YOUR love story I highly recommend Films by J. Thank you for capturing our dream wedding day. Karen & John

Booking Films by J was one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process! I went back and forth on going over budget but hesitantly booked the smallest package they offered. Jarrett is extremely communicative and responsive and t...
he entire process in getting quotes and information from Jarrett to the day of the wedding was very easy. The team who shot the day-of footage was full of personality while also remaining very professional and results-focused and were a lot of fun to have with us while we were getting ready through to the reception. Since the day of the wedding, I regretted not booking the larger package and was grateful when I was able to add some additions on after the fact. I just received my final wedding film this week and cannot imagine a better momento; I can’t wait to continue to re-visit this film in the years to come and re-live the day in a way that photos and other momentos just cannot do. I’ve been involved in the film industry for many years and thought my expectations would be impossible to meet; Jarrett met and exceeded all my expectations and hopes for what my wedding film would be; he is the best of the best!

You cannot convince me that you will find a better videographer in the PA area. Don't believe me? Just look at the final product: https://www.facebook.com/FilmsByJ/videos/1309053472502468/
My wife and I got married in Lancaster, PA. We were in...
itially going to go with a photographer who also did video to save on cost, but at the last minute, we decided to go over our budget and shell out a bit more for Jarrett (owner of Films by J). This was probably the best decision of our wedding. The wedding was a blur and the video captured so much more than any of the photographs ever could. It may seem like a luxury cost before you get married, but in retrospect, I would choose the videographer over the photographer if I had to.
Jarrett is friendly, fun, and accommodating while still maintaining a serious degree of professionalism. He and his assistant probably got to know our guests more than any of the other vendors at the wedding - even despite being behind their video cameras. They made us feel comfortable and natural, directed us when we needed direction, and always had great suggestions. They worked well with the other vendors, which is always a great plus as well. After the wedding, Jarrett communicated with us promptly whenever we had a question. You can tell this guy loves his work and he pours his heart into your video.
All-in-all, Films by J was hands down the best decision of our wedding.

We are SO happy that we picked Films by J for our wedding! At first, like a lot of couples who are planning a wedding, we were hesitant to hire a videographer because we thought it would be one more cost we couldn't afford. After talking to oth...
er vendors, I was convinced that I would regret not having my wedding on video. We set up an appointment with Jarrett, as referred by a vendor. Even after meeting Jarrett for the first time, I was already really excited we decided to hire him for my wedding! He was super nice and professional and made sure he wrote down everything I wanted so he could capture my day perfectly!
Closer to the wedding, we realized my dear aunt would not be able to attend. She is a quadriplegic and so it was going to be very difficult for her to come all the way down to PA from her home in New Hampshire. She was so heartbroken and disappointed, as we all were, that she wasn't going to see me get married.
After talking with Jarrett about our options, he came up with a fantastic idea to live stream my wedding ceremony so my aunt could watch me walk down the aisle and get married from her own bed! Doing this, not only meant that he had to set up an extra device for filming, but he also brought in a third assistant, as a courtesy to us, to ensure that's everything ran smooth with the live stream! My aunt was so happy!
When we finally received our video--IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! We got an 8 min video of pure perfection! I was speechless about his crazy attention to detail and of course was left with tears from all the beautiful memories that were captured that day!
If you're a reluctant bride/groom who's not sure a videographer is right for you, IT IS! The wedding day is such a crazy, chaotic day that you, the bride/groom, miss a lot of what's going on! To have those moments you missed and memories you cherish on video that you can watch forever and ever, is priceless! So look no further because Films by J is seriously the best in the business!!!
