"We stumbled on Jacob Yackley through the Knot and we couldn’t be more happier that we did. We decided to inquire about his services and he instantly initiated a phone call to get a better idea of what we wanted in a videographer and get a sense for our style. After letting him know we were interested in filming in super 8 – he showed as much enthusiasm and openness as we had about the idea, that we instantly knew he we would be a perfect fit for us. While some videographers have a specific style they like to stick with, he was extremely open to our vision. This was a big plus, because having someone who was interested in our style was really important to us. Throughout our wedding day, he directed us and made us feel comfortable throughout the process – something that could be difficult especially if you’re not use to being on camera. In the end, our wedding film came out amazing, not only because he was able to capture the tiny/intimate moments you want to remember forever but also because we could see the love and time he put into our film. We 10/10 recommend him for your special day!"

"Jacob Yackley is the ABSOLUTE best! He captured every special moment of our wedding. Jacob took the time to get to know my husband and I before our big day and we were in awe of his professionalism, courtesy, demeanor, creativity, timeliness, and his laid back vibe. As I said, Jacob caught every moment, but it was almost as if he wasn't there. As much as I love Jacob, it was so amazing to see the footage from our wedding when I didn't even realize he was filming. I really appreciated the fact that it didn't feel like there was a camera in my face at any point during our entire wedding! Jacob is one of a kind and we recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best videographer around. We couldn't be happier with Jacob Yackley!!!"

Jacob is absolutely outstanding. When you first beginning to think about what you want in videographer for your special day, you will think how important it is that they capture the big moments: the vows, the first look, the speeches, etc. There are thousands of such videographers. However, once you begin to think about what is important, you will be concerned with all those special little moments that constitute the texture of that surreal day. When you watch your video, you want to feel what you felt on that day: not just the big moments: those are vivid enough, the little details are what reanimate that day on video when you share it with your kids and grandchildren. Jacob has the special and rare ability to capture the texture of the day with his lens. All of the big moments were captured and preserved in a beautiful manner. My wife and I were in tears again when we finally got to see the finish product. On top of his artistry, Jacob is a professional. He made the process of ascertaining what we wanted, handling logistics, and booking him seemless. Jacob with a joy and calming presence to be around on the big day and was invisible to all, unless it was necessary for him to direct and instruct: in which case he was helpful and professional. If you are considering videography for your wedding: I would suggest Jacob is the artist to preserve your special day. We are beyond thankful that we chose him.
