WHY DO WE MAKE WEDDING FILMS?
Kriha Films was born to capture real and raw emotion and feelings. Our approach is just that, to document and preserve the most beautiful and the most true events in everyone's life. What we want most is to get to know our couples wholly, so that we can tell their story in absolute perfection. We don't just want to capture your wedding day, we want to capture you and who you both are as people and share your amazing love for each other. We want our film to be a perfect reflection of you. If you would like to tell us your story, we would love to listen and share it.
"I do this because I believe in love, in family, in cherishing each other for as long as we have. Time is fleeting as are memories, but we can take memories with us with the help of the greatest medium, film. Nothing brings you back FULLY quite like a film does. I'm not here just to shoot your wedding and deliver it. I want to share you WITH YOU, and that is why we are offering so much more than just a wedding video here at Kriha Films. We are offering a piece of art, a true reflection of both of you and your families that doesn't flee or get forgotten. But instead, gets taken with you and carried on and shared for generations to come. We do this for couples who truly want something special, something so much more than just a wedding video."

"I was debating whether or not to hire a videographer for our wedding. I didn't think it was necessary to spend more money and having photos would be enough. I did want a slideshow at our reception though, so we contacted them to see if they could do one for us. My friend hired them for her wedding about a month before mine, so that's how we found them. James was very easy to work with when creating the slideshow even though I was an indecisive pain in the ass. He was so patient and accommodating. We ended up hiring them to film our wedding (actually my mom did and paid him without me knowing haha) and they were awesome throughout the day! After seeing our video, I can't believe that we almost didn't have one! It turned out beautiful! It's safe to say that out of all the wedding expenses, that the video is the best investment we made. Even if that means you have to spend less elsewhere. James and Holly are truly amazing at what they do! Hire them, you will not regret it!"
"I can honestly say, I am not the type of person that ever writes these reviews…
My wife and I hired James (Kriha) for our wedding on September 5, 2015. We had already hired a photographer and were very back-and-forth if we wanted to spend the money on a videographer. I ended up pulling the trigger as I had a surprise for my wife as a tribute to her late father. Not to sound cliché, out of every expense contributed to this amazing day, hiring James was easily the best investment we made! I have and would recommend his service to family!
Other than our amazing video, the three things I was most impressed with were professionalism, flexibility, and creativity. First, James and Holly were punctual and effortlessly blended in with all festivities. My wife later recounted when she put her dress on, James quietly slipped out of the room while Holly filmed. It was the small things in which we observed so much class and professionalism all day! Secondly, I had a few unique requests where James was flexible and went above and beyond accommodating. Lastly, James was outgoing, friendly, and knew when and how to take charge when necessary. At times, I think our photographer was grateful he was present as he inspired so many beautiful opportunities.
It has been close to a year since our wedding and I will still get random texts from my wife and mom stating how they just watched the video and how happy it makes them. You will NEVER regret spending the money on James and his service, you will however regret choosing not to."
