"I’ve sat down to watch the video about a dozen times now, and I’m still speechless. I kept sitting down to respond and rewatching the video and just becoming so overwhelmed with emotions. I wanted the response to do justice to what you’ve given to us - hopefully this will do!
It’s just beautiful. You did an amazing job capturing such an incredible day, and I’ve just run out of words that describe how it feels watching the way you’ve immortalised the best day of our lives (I’m getting teary again!)
We are so glad that we were able to have you there, you made the day that extra bit special, and we are so grateful for the memories that we are going to cherish for the rest of our lives. (Scott next to me while I’m typing this “... are you crying again?!”)
So many people have told me I looked like a Disney princess, which although was not the look I was going for, is definitely how I felt. You’ve given us our fairytale, and I am truly stunned by (excuse the repetitiveness!) how beautiful it is. The music, the transitions, the actual footage taken, the attention to details...it’s just perfect. Scott looks so handsome and happy, you really captured those loving tender moments as well as the happy excited ones. It’s just wonderful.
I want you to film the rest of my life! How do you feel about moving to Australia? (Only half-joking)
Thank you so much for what you’ve given us."
CAITLYN + SCOTT
"Our expectations were sky-high... we can honestly tell you that we were completely blown away by this video!!! You completely hit this out of the ballpark, omg!! It brought us both to tears not just once but both times we watched it. You perfectly captured the key moments of the day and brought them together into a beautiful and seamless story. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to hear our first-look letters and family speeches again. It returned us to our wedding day and allowed us to relive the intensity of the emotions we felt that day.
We feel that you are extremely talented and have an incredible ability to bring words and images together to illustrate magical moments of deep emotion. We are so happy to have had the chance to include you in our special day. We cannot thank you enough for giving us this precious memento that we will treasure forever!!
A huge thank you again for being such an integral part of our day."
SUMA + JACQUES
"We are in awe. I’m seriously wiping away the tears and holding back the ugly cry (in the best way). It’s unreal. I can’t imagine how much time and effort you both have put into this. We are BEYOND thankful and just so in love with your work.
Ahh thank you a million times. Wow wow wow!
This is next level. You honestly captured our day in THE most special way.
Thank you so much."
REBECCA + PHILIP
"HOLY F%$&!! This is so amazing. We just watched the video together crying and laughing and we are both besides ourselves. Thank you both so so very much - it is beyond anything we could have expected (Stef is still sobbing uncontrollably with joy right now!).
You guys captured everything so wonderfully, and the edit is perfect. Thank you so much for such an incredible gift."
STEF + BRYAN
"We are both too speechless for coherent thoughts. Let me catch my breath....
We cannot begin to thank you two enough for this. We are honored. We are touched. And we are so lucky that everything aligned in such a fortuitous way. We just dried our eyes, poured a glass of wine, and are about to hit play for our second of countless viewings. Thank you so much for helping us re-live that day. It has started to feel surreal, as though it was a dream. Your creativity and vision is unmatched.
With appreciation and love"
JACALYN + MICHAEL
"Lauren and I just popped a bottle of champagne and watched the video. Video isn’t the right word because it truly was a story and you did such an incredible job of presenting it. It brought us back to our wedding day and all of the special moments we had came rushing back like it was just yesterday. It’s pretty incredible how something that was almost 3 months ago now could feel like it just happened and remind us how amazing the entire day really was.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
LAUREN + TYLER
"Wow, Jono and I were moved beyond words last night when we watched it (twice!) Words cannot express how well you captured our day.
It definitely brought back the feelings of excitement all over again when we had the chance to share it on Facebook (especially for some of the relatives & friends that couldn’t make it).
Jono and I both feel like the best money we spent was having you guys make our video, it captured the day so perfectly and it was such a whirlwind for Jono especially, I know he really appreciated the chance to relive so many moments of the day."
JULIE + JONO
"We were so lucky to work with Karen and Jesse for our wedding and wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend them. We had so much fun with them and so happy to have them as part of our day. By the wedding, it felt like they were guests, not vendors. We had such a laugh with them and they worked so well with our other vendors. The time and effort that these guys put in before, during and after the wedding is so impressive. The quality of the product and experience of working with such professionals is definitely worth the cost. We were unsure whether or not to go with videographers before our wedding but in hindsight, do it! You will regret not doing it and you will regret not using Painted Sky Films."
BLAIR + ROBYN
"Jesse and Karen are undeniably amazing at what they do. We just received our wedding film and were absolutely blown away by the footage they captured. They captured everything we could of ever imagined from our wedding day, right down to the true authenticity of our story.
They both went above and beyond any expectation we would have ever imagined. From handling the 30 degree plus temperatures to chasing a wasp out of my dress!
We cannot thank them enough for giving us the most amazing gift of all. A Wedding Film that we can watch time and time again to relive what will be one of the most amazing days of our lives. Thank you both so so much - we are beyond grateful."
LAUREN + DARREN
"We first saw Jesse and Karen of Painted Sky Films amazing documentation skills after our friends wedding last summer. When we saw their finished wedding film we knew right away that we did not just want them a part of our wedding day but we NEEDED them there.
They completely exceeded our expectations by not only capturing every important detail of our special day but by showcasing our love story from the beginning. They are kind, caring, funny and amazing entrepreneurs.
We seriously cry every time we watch our wedding video, thanks to their hard work and talent."
TAMARA + DARCY
"Oh my goodness we cried watching this! You both did such an amazing job at capturing us! You guys took our breathe away we are in awe how amazingly talented you two are! We can’t thank you enough for making this film we will cherish forever!!
We can’t wait to share this with our loved ones!!! Thank you thank you!!
We can’t believe this is ours to keep forever"
JESS + JOSH
"Jesse, Karen and the Painted Sky team are absolutely incredible! We just received our wedding film and are completely blown away by what they have created. They captured all of the beauty of our wedding day, while keeping the story authentic, captivating, and genuinely "us".
Initially, we weren't going to prioritize videographers into our wedding budget but HOLY COW we are so happy we picked Painted Sky and have something to look back on for years to come. From the music, to the content, to the impeccably edited storyline, we absolutely love our film.
Thank you so much Jesse and Karen! We are so grateful."
MADISON + JOSH
"Karen and Jesse are such wonderful, artistic people with some MAD videography skills. I was hesitant to hire on videographers due to budget limits, but my mom worked tirelessly to convince me otherwise. Now that everything is said and done, I can't imagine not having had them a part of the wedding process.
The final cut really captures our goofiness and tells our story, while also capturing wonderful detail shots of the flowers, the ceremony, and the property. The resulting product blew us away, and it's icing on the cake that they're super rad people, too.
I would 100% recommend them if you are looking for a Vancouver Island videography team! Thanks Karen and Jesse for immortalizing our wedding in such a beautiful, fun way!"
CHARLOTTE + ALEX
I feel like I do not have the right words to say thank you enough. It is so amazing to be able to watch that film and experience all of those wonderful emotions from our wedding.
I just want to have it on replay on a big screen forever. I might have to get a bigger TV. So wonderful.
Thank you thank you thank you!!"
SARAH + NICK
"We can’t put into words how much we appreciate the video you made for us of our big day.
On the day of our wedding there was so much going on and so many emotions that it went by so incredibly fast. The video you created captured all the best details of our day and allows us to re live them whenever we want.
