Anthony was fantastic to work with! He's very laid back (in a good way), flexible, professional and just a really nice, down-to-earth guy. I had watched several (if not all LOL) of his wedding videos on his website and loved them. My husband was a little shocked when I told him that I wanted to hire a cinematographer/videographer since we had already hired a photographer. He didn't understand why we also needed a video. I explained to him that when we're old and gray (well, we're already gray LOL), the photos, although beautiful, won't help us remember what was said at our ceremony, the introductions and toasts at our reception, etc. He was skeptical to say the least. After our conference call with Anthony to discuss our day, my husband said "I like this guy and if we're going to hire a videographer, I'm glad we hired him." He worked very well with our other vendors and was never intrusive. He was SO non-intrusive that my father asked me the next day: "I thought you hired a videographer? I didn't see him." We received our highlight film a few weeks later and I.WAS.BLOWN.AWAY! I watched it with my husband and immediately there were tears streaming down my face. My husband couldn't believe how beautifully Anthony captured our day. My husband was very glad we hired him. I posted it to Facebook and so many people thought it was incredibly beautiful. We also purchased the footage from the ceremony and reception, in addition to the bride/groom sneak peak. I recently received all of those videos and it confirmed why I had wanted our day captured on video. As a bride, you get so caught up in the moment and you try to absorb it all but you can't possibly remember it all. I had forgotten what was said during the ceremony and the toasts at our reception. Watching the videos was like experiencing it all over again. Anthony is extremely creative and I highly recommend hiring him for your wedding or any special event.
When we first started planning our wedding, we had no intention of hiring a videographer. We wanted to spare the expense, and couldn't see the value in hiring someone for video, since we already had a photographer. But then I asked married friends if they had anything they would change about their wedding. To my great surprise, I got the same response every time: hire a videographer! With all of the effort we put into planning the wedding (and the first dance!) we wanted to know that it was captured. Now we were concerned with space. We worried that having two photographers PLUS a videographer would feel awkward, uncomfortable, and make us feel self-conscious.I'm writing this review to say that Anthony from Pair of Hearts Films put aside all of those concerns for us. He was friendly, professional, and -best of all- unobtrusive. He was so discrete in his filming style that our guests told us later that they didn't even know he was there!We haven't seen his finished product yet (the wedding was very recent) but we are confident in him and excited to see his work.Anthony is a true professional
Be Films was born out of love. Literally. After our own wedding, we recognized a need for artistic, intimate and compelling wedding films. And so, we began our journey as wedding cinematographers, capturing love stories and crafting films that celebrate them. We are creative professionals, passionate about filmmaking & each of our projects. Yes, we have degrees in film & journalism, but it’s our passion that makes our projects pop and our clients cry (tears of joy, of course).
Our promise to you: Never outsourcing; always hand-crafting each project. We may be Philadelphia-based, but we love to travel and are available for destination weddings on select dates each year.
*At Be Films, we believe that love is love. We are proud to capture the love stories of LGBT couples.*
