Ladd films was one of the best decisions my wife and I made in planning our wedding. They were extremely professional, easy to work with, and magnificently captured all the important moments of our special day! We couldn't have had an easier experience. From the initial meetings, to the detail and attentiveness of filming the day of the wedding, to the unbelievable video we received after our special day, every step of the process with Jake and Lizzie was enjoyable. Highly recommended! More...

Ladd Films was easily one of the best vendor decisions we made when planning our wedding. From the first coffee meeting to our pre-planning phone call, we felt right off the bat that they cared, listened, and were genuinely excited for our day.

Flash forward to the wedding day and Jake went out of his way to make us feel so celebrated, loved, and special--- all with a smile on his face!

Now, getting to relive our perfect day with our wedding video is one of the best things ever! We are so thankful that we hired Ladd Films and would recommend them 100 times over to anyone looking for friendly, professional, creative and (practically MAGIC) videographers!

We're thrilled we hired Jake for our wedding videographer. He is so talented and was really wonderful to have around that day. The footage we received back was absolutely beautiful and captured "us." We are so grateful for his vision, work ethic and vibe throughout the day. More...

There is truly not enough I can say about Jake and Lizzie. They go so far above and beyond to capture the perfect moments. They are true artists. They also happen to be the coolest people.

Thank you a million times over for being with us and capturing our wedding weekend. You two are absolutely amazing.

The Ladd's did everything we asked and more! They were very professional and timely with their communication. They set up several meetings to get to know us and understand what we wanted out of our day. They captured all the precious moments we dreamed of and compiled it into an amazing video! They exceeded our expectations on every level. Expectations that they exceeded were their communication, engagement, excitement, capturing the day, and result.

I recommend the Ladd's as I still look back at the video they created for us and all the fun shenanigans they helped create!

Jake and Lizzie Ladd were everything we hoped for in our videographers. From capturing the major details of our wedding to being "flies on the wall," they were able to capture every element of our wedding and put it into a meaningful and memorable video. We will enjoy watching the important moments as well as the little details that we missed during such a whirlwind day for many years to come! Thank you Jake and Lizzie! More...

Our photographer introduced us to Jake and Lizzie and we felt that it was fate! From the first email exchanges to the final product and new friendship- we have had the most amazing experience with Ladd Films not just as videographers but as human beings. We loved our video and Jake made us feel so at ease which made a huge difference for how we were able to show up on our wedding day. Thank you!!! More...

There are not enough great things to say about this amazing duo! Jake and Lizzie are genuinely awesome people to work with and really just great people to be around. They were very professional yet made us feel comfortable through out the planning process and wedding day. They captured every moment of our day perfectly and are people I would whole heartedly recommend to friends and family! Amazing work! More...

For anyone who wants to make their wedding day into a thrilling masterpiece of a movie: meet the Ladds!

Here’s the deal, future newlyweds: Only three things last after the day is over: the rings (and corresponding vows, of course), the memories, and the photos. If you find the right videographer, it’s like having moving, stunning pictures catching your love in action; the nuances of how you look at each other, the details of the day you’d forgotten because it went by in a flash, and the beauty you saw in your head and hoped others would see as well… Saying your vows, being declared as husband and wife (or what have you), hugging your family and friends, dancing your first dance, crying at your best man’s or maid of honor’s speeches… these are things a photo can’t catch.

We found Jake & Lizzy Ladd at a friend’s wedding. We chatted with them a little, told them we were on the lookout, and a few weeks later we received two emails. One was from the couple who had gotten married that day- a link to their videos. The music, the sentiment, the ambiance… I was quickly brought to tears by the beauty. I also had an email from the Ladds.
Without derailing from the couple’s special day, they had caught a few moments of my fiancé and I (talking with the newlyweds, dancing, etc.) and sent it over. It was thoughtful and wonderfully presented and I knew instantly we should hire them.

The Ladds don’t just hold a camera near you. They listen carefully, they figure out what makes the two of you special as a couple, they catch on quickly to what you want to see and hear (and what to leave on the cutting room floor), and they craft such beautiful vignettes that you will spend hours upon hours re-watching it with your spouse.

The rings may tarnish someday, and the memories will fade, but what you can see in print and watch on screen- that is the only thing beyond your love for each other that will last forever.

Jake & Lizzie are two of the BEST people in this world! They do incredible work as videographers and better yet, they're so much fun to be around! Positive energy, always have great ideas, get along with everyone & extremely kind. My husband and I are truly in love with our wedding video & couldn't imagine having gone with anyone else to capture our special day. You guys honestly had us at, "Just choose someone" (to video our wedding) when we first met with you last fall. Thank you both times a million! :-) More...

We hired Ladd Films for our January wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our big day!!! Not only are these two crazy talented, they're also phenomenal people. On our day Ladd Films were total pros, making sure they got all the right shots. Our final wedding video was more beautiful than we could have imagined. They perfectly encapsulated our wedding day, all of the special moments, details and feelings that went into our day. We would HIGHLY recommend Ladd Films, you will not regret hiring them!! More...

The fantastic work Ladd Films does speaks for itself, but Jake and Lizzie truly captured and created a representation of what our wedding day was actually like. The video they created for us makes us feel like we're reliving our wedding day every time we watch it.

They were a pleasure to work with both before and on our wedding day. They were easy going, professional and a joy to have around on our wedding day, and very much helped bring out some of the best moments on that day. We would choose to work with Jake and Lizzie again in a heartbeat, and cannot recommend them enough!

We hired Jake and Lizzie with Ladd Films for our wedding on 9/16/2017. They were amazing to work with! They're incredibly talented and the proof is in their final products...check out some of their highlight videos on their website and you'll know right away that their work is incredible!
While planning our wedding I looked into multiple videographers and no other highlight videos compared to theirs. Their work is truly special and unique to each couple and they made sure that we were happy with what they put together for us. Not only is their work incredible, they're amazing people to be around. They were SO helpful throughout the entire day and their positive energy was infectious.
We would very highly recommend Ladd Films to anyone looking into a videographer for their big day...hands down, they're the best!

My husband and I got married on 10/15/17 and Jake was amazing to work with - so fun and always had a positive attitude, super talented and creative, and very accommodating. Even though we were only able to meet with him once before our wedding day, we feel like the videos he made truly captured the feel of our day and who we are together. He worked so hard (like seriously, running everywhere all day) to get as many moments as he could for us. The end result is incredible… a movie-trailer-level summary video of our day, plus a ton of other footage. We were completely blown away and will treasure it forever! More...

Ladd Films is a great choice for your next video project. Jake is easy to work with and takes in to account what you are looking for in your video. At YouthWorks we have specific video needs to meet our brand standards. Jake went above and beyond to work with us in the editing process to help us fine tune the video. If your company is looking for a videographer to tell your story in a marketing/promotional video Ladd Films can help you do just that! More...

Having Jake and Lizzie apart of our wedding was the smartest decision we made. My wife and I get goosebumps watching the video they made for us. Jake and Lizzie are so creative and talented, they cater the video to your personality. They do this by setting up a meet and greet session so they can get to know you. We felt very comfortable talking to them, we gave them some ideas and they delivered them, exceeding expectations. They're an exceptional team to have capturing your special day, I highly recommend them. More...

Jake and Lizzie are wonderful people, period. They also happen to be amazingly talented videographers! They have an eye for detail and composition, shoot the most unique shots (we had a go-pro underwater filming our feet as we walked into Lake Superior!!), and can edit a piece so wonderfully it gives you goosebumps. If you are considering a videographer for your wedding, commit! And book Ladd Films, they will not disappoint! More...

We could not have asked for a better team to work with. The artistry these two display is simply unmatched. Each time we watch our video, we find something new and exciting to enjoy. Thank you Ladd Films for giving us a gift to share with one another and our families for a lifetime! More...

Jake and Lizzie are absolute dreams to work with, and the videos they create are beautiful, unique and spot on at capturing the essence of their subjects!

I have told anyone who would listen (which isn't many because whenever people start talking about their wedding, other people kind of tune them out. have you noticed that yet? you will) that they should hire Ladd Films to capture their wedding or any other special occasion.

Some people view a wedding video as a complete luxury and don't set aside the budget for it, but I can honestly say that my wedding video was my all time best wedding investment! It instantly transports me back to that amazing day that flew by WAY too fast and let's me relive it in such a special way. Every detail I thought through and put money towards that seemed SO important at the time (flower arrangements, centerpieces, first dance selection) would be a vague memory at this point if I didn't have such an enchanting wedding video to re-watch whenever I was in the mood to reminisce.

Seriously. If you think a wedding video is an unnecessary luxury, PLEASE reconsider and have the video to be your one splurge you allow for yourself! You will appreciate it 100 times more than splurging on rarer flowers or a fancier veil or an extra passed hors d'oeuvre. This video will last you a lifetime, and will only get better with time.

And if you decide a wedding video is right for you - HIRE LADD FILMS! You won't be disappointed!!

Jake and Lizzie did our wedding video. Was so blessed that they were able to join us on our day. They did a fantastic job, let me share some of the reasons why:

>> They have a natural creative sense. They got us into excellent poses. In fact, our wedding pictures turned out great as well... because of their creativity!

>> They weren't in the way. It felt like at every important moment... when there were emotions being shared, etc Jake and Lizzie were there. At the same time, they were able to blend into the surroundings.

>> They were able to adapt to the situation. Jake and Lizzie had never done a Muslim wedding before. That said, they were able to adapt to make things work. They were sensitive to the culture and religion, and it made the experience really pleasant.

>> The end product was fantastic. Without any direction at all, they were able to put together a really great video.

For all those reasons and more, I am so happy we decided to haveJake and Lizzie at our wedding. You can check out our video on Jake's website (Amin + Sana).

I don't think we could ever say enough about Ladd Films. Jake and Lizzie were not only our videographers, they became a part of our family during the wedding day. Jake was the first person at our venue on the wedding day, and was there until the very end. They not only captured every moment, but they were a part of it, even sporting our sunglasses favors.

From the initial conversation to receiving the last deliverable, you can tell that they truly care about their clients and want to get to know YOU. They do not just fit the highlight reel to a standard criteria, they make it unique to each couple. I am so in love with not only the quality of our video, but every last detail, including how perfectly the music works with each frame. I find myself wanting to watch it all the time, even months after the wedding has passed to relive the day.

We highly recommend Ladd Films to anyone even thinking about wedding videography, it was one of the best decisions we made. They not only make a wonderful couple but are great partners and work so well together. Thank you Jake and Lizzie!!!

Where do I even begin... Jake and Lizzie aren't just amazing videographers, they are incredible people who truly care about what they do and are so kind and genuine. We never doubted they would do a great job recording our day but the thing we remember most was laughing at Jake as he climbed trees and emerged from fields just to get the perfect shot and Lizzie who was always there to fix my veil or calm my nerves. Watching our video brought back every emotion we felt that day, from tears to laughter, they captured everything in the most natural and organic way. It makes us so incredibly happy to have chosen Ladd Films because we now have something so heartfelt to remind us of our wedding day. Jake and Lizzie are so talented and above all, truly passionate about what they do. There is nobody else in this industry like Ladd Films. We love them! More...

If you're debating hiring a videographer for your wedding, or hiring THESE videographers, you can stop. Book Jake & Lizzie Ladd. Here's why... Before the wedding: Jake and Lizzie were super approachable. Communication was easy and efficient; it was never a problem to get in contact with them , and we always felt valued in our ideas and questions. Quite simply, they made it easy to work with them--they were warm, inviting, and fun. The wedding day: On our wedding day, having Jake and Lizzie there was like having 2 of our dearest friends along for the ride. They had a way of capturing intimate and personal moments in a way that was not intrusive or pushy. They were also a freaking TON OF FUN!!! I mean, Jake was climbing trees to get the shots he wanted, Lizzie was crawling around on the ground to get the perfect angle--how can you not have fun with that kind of entertainment!?!? These guys had a way of being "behind the scenes" in their approach to filming, but didn't miss a single moment. After the wedding: When we received our highlight reel, we could not stop watching. It is such an incredible gift to have a 5 minute film that brings you right back to your day. And not some boring, stuffy, lame video... But a freaking AMAZING work of ART that captures not only the special moments, but the actual emotions and feelings of your entire day. When we watched our video, it was as if the love and excitement of our day was tangible--you could just FEEL it., all over again. We later received the extended film which included raw, sweet moments and unexpected narratives from family and friends that were portrayed with such honesty, yet fluidity. We honestly could not be more thrilled with our final product, and will be forever grateful to have had them among our closest family and friends on our wedding day. More...

We cannot say enough great things about Jake & Lizzie! So if you are looking for the abbreviated version...here you go...THEY ARE AMAZING IN EVERY ASPECT...HIRE THEM!

Now for more details...

We heard great things about them from our Wedding Planner. Our wedding was a destination in Miami and we decided to fly them out. We had put so much time and effort into planning our dream wedding...so it was extremely important to fully capture it & get a great video to show for it. After our first meeting with Jake & Lizzie all our anxiety was put to ease. They asked great questions to get to know us & had great ideas to best tell our story.

Moving onto the actual wedding...Jake & Lizzie were simply a joy to have around us at all times of our wedding. It is so important to have good people around you during your wedding and these two were so cool & calm the entire time. Always making sure they were capturing the important events but you totally forget they are even there. It's not an easy balance...but they somehow did it perfectly.

With the wedding captured, these two went straight to work on our videos. They really made the effort up front & during the wedding to get to know us and everyone who was special to us. This made for the perfect wedding video, that captured our love, the special days & all the incredible people who shared it with us. We literally were sobbing watching it.

Jake and Lizzie are great people, great videographers & great editors. You will be incredibly fortunate if they are available for your wedding & so happy working with them throughout the entire process.

We couldn't have been more impressed by Ladd Films! Jake and Lizzie did a great job of explaining all parts of the process, and taking the time to get to know us and our story prior to the wedding. It was obvious that they came into the wedding day with some creative ideas to tell our story, and did a great job getting the necessary shots without adding stress to bride, groom, guests or photographers. Their personalities made it easy for them to blend into the days events and get candid footage and commentary without people feeling uncomfortable or intimidated by a camera in the room. Some of our favorite parts of the video were the early "getting ready" parts and the closing of the night-- we were so glad that they were in it for the whole day, instead of choosing a window of a few hours. They were professional throughout the whole process, did a very nice job of explaining their rates and packages, and kept in communication after the wedding to let us know when to expect the videos. For budget reasons, we were unsure if we would go with a videographer at all. Looking back, we are so happy that we have such an awesome way to remember the day (including the events we were too busy to see when they were happening), and the people that were all there with us. Hiring Ladd Films was one of the decisions we are most happy about. We would highly recommend Ladd Films.

In fact, upon seeing the final product, guests from our wedding are have already booked Jake & Lizzie for their upcoming weddings!

It honestly does not get any better than Ladd FIlms. If you are even slightly interested in getting video coverage of your big day, stop your search and book Jake & Lizzie. They are the most professional, passionate, and talented couple. To say I am pleased with my finished products is an understatement. They put so much heart into the work they complete; I swear it comes out so individualized for each couple. I was initially on the fence about getting video coverage, but now I tell everyone who asks that it's the best thing I ever did. What a beautiful, lasting memory! More...
