"Professionalism……..with much appreciation...... "
Posted on 1/26/2013 by bethteaf from Jacksonville, Florida
Wow!! We just finished watching the highlight video and we can't say enough about all the details you captured.........from the beginning collage with the added falling leaves effect, to the dove in the tree, they were just wonderful.
We loved how you merged the two dances and actually had The Mystery Band playing "our song", Wonderful Tonight....what a nice surprise , and the funny touches.........we weren't sure if you knew, but the Canon Robb place setting frame, so we moved Canon Robb's to Rick's seat to be funny...........so if you caught that on purpose, we loved it...it made us laugh.........and all the little touches you added, like the fireplace, and the flower shots.....and the "time after time" song was memorable, the way you were walking with us........
....the way you captured us walking to the horse and carriage........and my funny graceful ascent onto the carriage.........Haha.......and the way you framed every shot with something beautiful...like the Florida House Inn Sign and the thoughtful extras like the bustling of the dress.......the historic plaques/stone and all of the dancing video...
We can't thank you enough........your professionalism shows and we would highly recommend you...........with much appreciation......

"Without video, we had no way to relive our wedding"
Posted on 10/1/2012 by angelicasan from Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
Brent provided us with a lasting memory of our wedding that we will be able to enjoy for years to come. The wedding day goes by so fast. Without the video, we had no way to continue to relive, remember, and enjoy the many great moments of our wedding. Brent did a great job capturing the ceremony and our quiet conversation with each other during that time. Also, he captured all of the important moments along the way and our favorite is the footage at the end singing with the band. Brent was always very responsive, professional, and easy to work with. I'd recommend him with no hesitation.
"Best decision I made was the wedding video!"
Posted on 8/14/2012 by An Eventective User from New York, NY
My daughter's wedding video was most important. Pictures are one thing but having a video of her wedding, hearing her voice as she was saying her vows is a beautiful thing, watching her dance and enjoy herself. Watching the video of the ceremony brought tears to my eyes as well as watching her have the time of her life at the reception. His video captured that and I will be forever grateful. Family members that have watched the video have enjoyed it so much!! The quality of the video was amazing. From the opening shots of the grounds around the Club Continental to the flowers, every shot was perfect. The best decision I made was ignoring my daughter's wishes and I myself hiring a videographer. As for being professional, I couldn't have asked for anyone more professional than Brent Nicholaysen. From our initial contact via e-mail to the actual event was great. Thank you so much for being a part of Lisa & Will's special day!!

"A great investment and I would recommend Brent"
Posted on 7/24/2012 by An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL
Our wedding video was amazing! Your turnaround time was unbelievable, I know some brides have to wait months for their video and yours was ready by the time I got back from the honeymoon. It was so nice to relive those memories as if they had just happened thanks to you getting the video done so quickly! The quality of the video was excellent, and my family and I were commenting on how professional you were - many times we didn't even notice you were there filming us which was great because you captured candid and natural footage. Some of my favorite moments captured were the ceremony footage: the "before", my husband and I :) during the ceremony, the vows (even when the priest decided to do them from the side instead of the middle!), and of course the reception: the first dances, the toasts and definitely the dancing! My family and I were laughing watching everyone dance and enjoy themselves. I knew our guests had a good time, but our wedding video really showed me how much everyone enjoyed the night. My other favorite part was the interviews. Seeing my parents and my immediate family express how much they loved us and their happiness that day was incredible - they had me in tears!!! The highlight video is a great way to get the feel of the wedding without it running too long. This was such a great investment and I would recommend Videographer Brent Nicholaysen to any bride who wants her wedding memories captured professionally on video at an excellent price. Thank you!

"The best gift we gave ourselves"
Posted on 5/4/2012 by An Eventective User from St Augustine
Wow! We received our wedding video immediately after our wedding. We love the quick service! Thank you so much for shipping it to us! We watched it that evening and enjoyed reliving our special day again.
You were so professional throughout all the chaos.
We are so pleased with your work. The best gift we gave ourselves was hiring you. You were able to capture our day from beginning to end and all of the footage was wonderful. There was not a dull moment in your video and we really liked that aspect of your service. I love the still shots at the beginning of each part. The introduction was really nice too. Thanks for sending multiple copies!! Our parents will love these!
Hands down you were the most valuable to attend our wedding.
We are so thankful. Keep up the awesome work! St Augustine is lucky to have you!

"Vivid colors and every detail remembered on video!"
Posted on 3/15/2012 by An Eventective User from Orlando, Florida
Vivid colors and every detail remembered on video!! We were all very pleased and thrilled to watch our beautiful video! We loved our wedding day and I am so happy I am able to watch it whenever I want! This was crucial to us as we want our future kids and family to be able to watch and enjoy as well as us be able to relive the day throughout the years on anniversaries and just because. My dad was struck by the vividness of the colors and my mom really appreciated that you got the surroundings and details for friends and family who were not present to see. A record of our wedding day and the surroundings were set up beautifully with the camera. Thanks so much for our video! It's been amazing to look back over the wedding and to get to see all those things we never saw! We received our video back within weeks of getting married. Very timely. You were extremely professional and considerate. You have been timely and thorough. Thank you so much for your hard work!
"Our wedding video is a complete picture of our day"
Posted on 3/5/2012 by An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL
My husband Sam and I got back from the Honeymoon and we finally had the opportunity to gather some family together a few days to watch the highlight video. We all loved it!! The wedding day goes by so fast, that it is hard to remember all of the details - this video was a great way to re-live those special moments! I was surprised at how quickly we got the videos and that they were such high quality. The pictures and sound were both very clear and the highlight video flowed really well. We also really appreciate the fact that our videographer provided the extra copies. We plan to give those as gifts to our parents - we know that it will be really special for them! I loved seeing all of our friends and family on the video - we didn't get to spend as much time as we wanted with everybody, so it was fun to see everyone at the reception talking, interacting and enjoying the evening. Some of my other favorite moments are, of course, the ceremony, our first dance, dancing with our parents, cutting the cake. But, it was also the other little moments - getting dressed, seeing they guys getting ready and what they were doing...all of those things I didn't get to see before the wedding. The video kind of gives you a complete picture of the day! It was interesting, when I mentioned I had my wedding video, my uncle commented that he didn't even really notice that there was a videographer at the wedding - which I think speaks volumes about how well you just blended in, but still captured so much! If someone were to ask me whether to do a wedding video or not, I would absolutely recommend it! After receiving mine, I can't imagine not having it.... we are looking forward to enjoying this video for years to come!!
"My videos are PERFECT!!!!"
Posted on 1/25/2012 by An Eventective User from Jacksonville Florida 32202
My videos are PERFECT!!!! I watched the highlight video at work right after it was delivered and I was overwhelmed with joy. Brent captured so many moments I forgot or didn't know about and I loved all of it. Kevin was also very impressed! I Thank him so much, for everything!!! We received our wedding video in a timely manor and in fact, it came way sooner than I expected! It was great quality. Everyone who viewed it was very surprised with the detail and loved the beginning screen. Brent Nicholaysen was Very professional! I loved the shots of The Cedar House, the Castle Otttis and I LOVED the shot of Kevin and I's "True Love" table decoration. It meant a lot to Kevin and I so to see it captured on video. My family members said they all have loved it! They were very impressed with the quality. I Absolutely feel that having my wedding captured on video was a valuable way of preserving lasting memories. I could not imagine not having this video. Pictures are nice, but in them I can't see all the emotion developing like I can in a video. To me, my wedding videos are priceless. Everything was just perfect. I keep watching the videos and they just make me so happy. As a lot of newlyweds say, the day goes by so fast, so it's hard to remember certain details. But seeing the video helps me relive every moment. Thank you SO much Brent!! Brent, I just wanted to take a second to thank you, so much, for all your work. You were great and my photographer (who's like family to me) said you were amazing to work with. You were so behind the scenes, it was like you weren't even there! And when we did speak, you were so nice/friendly, yet still professional. You have been my favorite vendor throughout this whole process. You explained everything to me and there were no mishaps or bad surprises, and Kevin and I LOVE that. Thank you again, for everything! Holly Tobie
"we recommend this videographer"
Posted on 6/23/2011 by 000xxx000 from Neptune Beach, Florida
My husband David and I viewed our video and we wanted to thank Brent Nicholaysen so much for his efforts. We really appreciated it. We really got to see the wedding instead of just being in the wedding. We liked how Brent captured the interaction with our guests and all of the candid shots of us as a couple. We loved our wedding video!
Posted on 5/19/2011 by shanah111 from Jacksonville, Florida

"LOVVVVVE THE VIDEO!"
Posted on 2/3/2011 by Hoschton from Orange Park, Florida
I'm so thankful we found you! This was a "blended family" wedding and it's absolutely priceless to have these DVD's to pass on to our children so they can always remember being a part of it! I couldn't believe how much I loved it - we've had so many people over to watch it with us and they all love it! The kids prefer the shortened highlight version but I adore having all the details in the full version (the things I didn't get to see, the groom getting ready with the boys.....the dancing our kids were doing as we were dancing as a couple at the reception...). The things I wouldn't have wanted to miss were exactly the things you captured on video!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I totally forgot you were even there! The first time I watched the video I kept saying "Wow, I didn't know anyone was there!" You really did an amazing job of being "there" without getting in the way of anyone's enjoyment. Thank you so much!! You have helped us capture the most important day of our lives and given us a way to pass it on to our children as well!!! *Jodie*
"I highly recommend you!!!!"
Posted on 1/26/2011 by kathyswedding from Jacksonville, Fl
I just wanted to tell you that my entire family thought you did an awesome job with our wedding video!!! I was extremely impressed, and would recommend you highly! In fact, I already have! I am so glad we decided to do the highlight video, and your picks for the video were excellent. I had the whole family over last Saturday to watch the highlight video. Luke’s dad said it was the best wedding video he had ever seen, and he was skeptical at first. In fact, so was I. I thought the pictures would be enough, but thanks to you I got to see and hear my entire wedding, something I could not have done otherwise. Thank you so much!
"Mr Nicholaysen captured every moment perfectly!"
Posted on 1/13/2011 by Juila111 from Ponte Vedra, Florida
I would really like to take a minute to tell you just how much we love our wedding video. You were so very easy to work with and were so professional, punctual and thorough on our wedding day! You captured every moment perfectly and some moments that we don't even remember but were so happy to see. Matt and I went back and forth about hiring a videographer for the wedding but to tell you the truth we both agreed after seeing your work that it was one of the most important decisions we made for our big day. My advice to brides is even if you are on a budget remember that the flowers will die and nobody will remember what the cake tasted like so why not invest in something that will last a lifetime. We have shared all our extra DVD's with our family across the country and overseas and they really loved it. Even through we had a fairly small wedding it was still a blur between making sure we talked to all the guests and got all the photos taken and the toasts and traditions. It's just nice to be able to sit in the comfort of our living room and see every detail that we missed and reflect on the most important day of our lives. Thank you again for everything!

"Everyone that has seen the video LOVED it!! "
Posted on 12/16/2010 by JohnLovesDawn from Jacksonville, Florida
I want to take a moment and tell you that the video you made for our wedding was absolutely beautiful and fun. Whenever we get bored we just watch the highlights. There were so many shots that we didn't even know you got. We laughed, we cried and had so much fun. I love the fact that you added songs and it was perfect. There were times that it looked like the song belonged there. We keep laughing at the best man Marcus because we had 'You're the One that I want' with Olivia Newton John and John Travolta and you made it perfect because he jumped and it just went perfect with the song. Everyone that has seen the video LOVED it!! You captured everything and more (thank you so much for that) You were the most kind and professional person we have met in a long time. Brent again, thank you so much for making our wedding video perfect.
Sincerely, Dawn & John Perez
"Everything was captured. I loved that!"

You were Extremely professional. Thank you Brent for working with us. We absolutely loved our wedding video! We loved seeing the dancing. Not just us dancing, but our friends and family having fun also. Our family members said they thought the wedding video was emotional and funny which is exactly what the day was like. Everything was captured. I loved that! Even things that were a suprise to me were caught on the video. I was really happy to see that. The groomsmen decided to sing to me and I had no idea but the whole thing is on video. The highlights were a great addition to the set.

We loved our wedding video! You captured everything. We have received multiple compliments on our video and many of our guests mentioned how impressed they were with how professional and courteous you were to everyone. The quality of the video was wonderful, the transitions between pictures and moments was perfect. You're attention to detail was amazing, I'm so glad you captured the small things. It was truly a blessing to have you be a part of our wedding day, we could not have made a better choice than you to capture one of the most important days of our lives. We are so very grateful. Please feel free to use me as a reference if anyone is considering using you and has questions they can call me. You have been an absolute blessing to work with. You gave us a lot of DVDs.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the videos. All important moments were adequately captured and the Highlight video was very entertaining and enjoyable...the music selections added an additional dimension of enjoyment. Your professionalism was beyond reproach! We received adequate copies of DVDs...appreciate you making the additional reception disc, as well. We sent you a Gift Card as a token of our gratitude. We sat down to watch all of the DVDs over the Holiday weekend. Regards, Dennis Morales

WOW, we are so pleased and thrilled to have had a fantastic video! Brent was a real Gentlemen. He actually helped us cleanup afterwards and he was the last to leave the wedding with us. I love to watch my wedding video all the time. We even booked Brent again for another event coming up. I must say he was very professional and worked really well with our photographer. I am telling everyone to call Brent for anything they want on video. We really like his price and he gave us so much. I want to thank him for everything! I recommend him all the time. He is a true hero! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! From, Jackie and Reggie Goodman.
"Definitely on My List of References... Five Stars!"
Posted on 5/28/2010 by Meriyam09 from Jacksonville, Florida
As soon as the wedding was over, we received compliments from our family and close friends about you. They were very pleased with your professionalism and the fact that you were not over bearing even though you captured everything that was going on. Our family back in Nigeria and Niger have had a blast watching the videos and they cannot believe how well everything was covered. Let me also thank you for refering us to a very good photographer who definitely complimented you at the events. You both remained smiling and were flexible with some of the changes we had to do. Thanks again for making our wedding day pleasant and for helping us capture a lasting memory. FYI - Everyone wanted a copy of the videos so we have had to make 20 copies for various friends and family members. You will definitely be on my list of references for anyone who asks. Please do not hesitate to give my contact information to prospective customers.
"Superb Quality, EXCELLENT. You Captured Everything"
Posted on 4/12/2010 by Almab from Jacksonville, Florida
We can not say enough about the SUPERB job you did in videoing my Son's and new Daughter-in-law's wedding !!! This was our first time contracting a professional videography service. You made the process very easy by posting your contract on-line for openness and clarity. You were very flexible in customizing the contract to meet our specific, personal needs. The QUALITY of your workmanship is EXCELLENT.The number of wedding DVD copies, we must say, was very generous! The separate highlight DVD is great, as it allows viewers to get a glimpse of key happenings in the wedding/reception quickly. Your pricing is competitive; you provided a resource for multiple musical selections, and also was open to traveling to St. Simons Island to film this awesome wedding event! Your excitement about your work is refreshing and it really shines through with a final product that is top notch. YOU CAPTURED EVERYTHING, PLUS YOU ADDED THE DEDICATION PHOTO AT NO EXTRA COST. MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU !!! We will certainly use your services again if needed and will highly recommend you to all of our family and friends. With gratitude, Alma---( Mother-in-law) Bianca---(Bride) Brad---(Groom)
"We absolutely LOVE our wedding DVD!!!"
Posted on 4/12/2010 by Kristi13 from Jacksonville, Florida
Brent, We absolutely LOVE our wedding DVD!!! We have watched it a few times already and just can't believe how wonderfully you put it all together. You captured so much more than we ever thought possible and the quality of your work is amazing!! One of our favorite moments you captured would be the interviews with the guests. It meant so much to hear the wonderful things our guests had to say to us. That was such a great idea and we are so glad you were able to include that on our DVD!! The highlight DVD you provided us with is so wonderful as well!! It is great to sit and watch the highlights with family and friends. It is put together so beautifully and covered all the great moments of our day. Overall we are just so impressed with our DVD and so glad we chose you to be our videographer!! You arrived at the ceremony site earlier than you had to be and you very pleasant to work with. You made us feel very relaxed and we didn't have to worry about having the camera on us throughout the day. The amount of DVD's you provided us with is great as well. It's nice to have the extra copies of our wedding day to share with our families.
Thank you so much for providing us with a beautifully DVD of our special day!! We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends in the future. I mean it when I say we love the video!!! We've showed it to some of our family and they just can't believe how great it all came out. Words can't describe how much we truly love the video!! It is that great!!! All the emotions and wonderful feelings of that day come back whenever I watch the video.
