Larissa, Bride
We love the DVD! Oh my gosh, I cried almost the whole time watching it. You did a wonderful job not only capturing the obvious parts of the ceremony, but you really captured the romantic feeling of the whole day with the before and after shots. It’s such a sweet and wonderful keepsake. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“Kelley, we wanted to thank you so much for such a perfect wedding video.The entire video looks awesome and we are so thrilled with the outcome. Although we were hesitant to hire a videographer for our wedding, it was one of the best decisions that we made. Our wedding day was such a blur but you captured every moment perfectly. Thank you so much for everything that you have done and for all of your hard work that you put into our video. We will cherish it for years to come. Thanks again!”

Brittany, Bride
“We appreciated you taking the time to travel for our wedding. Your shots were unique and creative, like none we had seen in other wedding videos. We hardly noticed you were there, so it was a wonderful surprise to see all the great footage you got of our special day. You captured moments that we never saw because we were so busy, which is why we’re so thankful that we got a wedding video. We can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the final project. Thank you so much!”
Nikki, Bride
“You will not regret picking Illuminated Videos! Kelley captured everything! I wanted to remember every detail of my wedding. From the sequence on my dress to the flowers to the emotions taking place throughout the day, tears of joy, happiness and excitement! I am very pleased with my wedding video. Illuminated Videos knows exactly how stressful it is to plan a wedding, so they are very organized. I couldn’t have made a better choice.”
Jennifer & Joseph
“I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the wonderful job you did videotaping Camilyn’s wedding. We all were so pleased with every aspect of it!! Your presence at the wedding was so quiet and unintrusive. We hardly knew you were there. The finished product turned out to be great! Camilyn and Chris loved the DVD. Most of all, I really enjoyed working with you on this project! You were so pleasant to work with and such a professional. We appreciate all you did to help make this day so special. If you ever need a reference, please call me. Again, thanks!!! “
Carole, Mother of the Bride
“Most of all, I want you to know how MUCH WE ALL LOVE THE VIDEOS!!!!! I cannot begin to tell you what they mean to everyone. Alicia’s mother-in-law has watched it numerous times, and I am not exaggerating. You outdid yourself! Thank you so much for agreeing to do the video even though you were expecting a child any day and then giving us such a friendly price for such a wonderful product!”
Linda, Mother of the Bride
“Hey there! I just got them last night from my mom. She forgot to tell me I had a package. I LOVED IT!!! You are amazing thank you so much! I can watch it over and over and over again! You did a great job. You really put a lot of thought into it. I remember when I told you that I wanted Eyes Without a Face as a song…then I recalled the guitar solo on it. I was like “oh no” oh well….I love it and it will be fine. You took that out and you can’t even tell! YOU ROCK! The way you edited it was amazing! The moments you captured mean so much. Feel free to let me know if you need me to send you a recommendation- Have any of your potential clients email or call me. Thanks again Kelley!”
Clara, Bride
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the extraordinary job that you and your team did on our wedding video. I being the groom was, how should I put it, just slightly more than indifferent on who was going to shoot our wedding video. I naively thought that all wedding videos are the same. I was wrong. Having seen our video numerous times with family and friends, I have come to appreciate the quality, time and care with which our video was produced. The thing I appreciated the most is how unobtrusive the video staff were. I honestly did not even notice them during the wedding. They had three cameras running and were able to capture every angle unobstructed–with clear audio as well. This video is certainly a keeper. Thanks for all the memories!”
Josh, Groom

I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place and the live auction that immediately followed raised over $32,000 on 12 items! Everyone was especially taken with your footage of Johnny and the river. Thanks again for your great work.”
Judy Burkholder, Sandy Springs Society
“My daughter loved watching herself in the video of the game. She watched it over and over. Everyone on the team truly enjoyed your work. They especially liked the clips edited to sports songs. Thanks for making a special memory of our season! We will definitely use you for all our sports videos in the future.”

“Just a note to thank you again for all the wonderful work you did on the St. Joseph’s Infirmary Reunion. Last night, I sat here and watched the reunion video all the way through again and realized I had never written to tell you how much I have enjoyed it. You and your team did a wonderful job.
The whole thing is fantastic and the way you put it together was quite good. I will treasure it always. Thank you so much for all the love and care you and your family put into this project. You are true angels indeed. I will watch both videos many times in the years to come. It is so great to be reminded of how lucky I was to be an SJI grad.“
