We knew we were in great hands as soon as we sat down at a sunny café with Josiah over coffee and wedges to talk about our dream wedding. He made us feel completely at ease, and his enthusiasm and excitement for us was comforting. We were given the opportunity to look at a ‘teaser’ of another wedding he had done, and we completely fell in love with Josiah’s style and ability to capture some of the most beautiful and emotional moments of the day. Josiah encouraged us to talk about how we envisaged our wedding, moments we didn’t want missed, important people, and special memorabilia we wanted included. On the day, Josiah’s enthusiasm and passion was contagious. He made us feel completely relaxed and well looked after, and we completely trusted him to capture the essence of our day and allow or personalities to shine through. Our wedding film is absolutely stunning to say the least. We have great joy in showing everybody that comes to visit, and we secretly watch it every now and then just for fun! No matter how many times we watch it I still well up with tears and I am always in awe of how Josiah managed to create this priceless piece of film with such professionalism and flair. Our wedding film is now one of our most treasured items and we are thrilled to think that it will be seen many times over for generations to come. We can’t thank Josiah enough for this timeless treasure that is our wedding film.

The reason why we chose Firetale was because we had seen wedding films they had made before. When we met we got a chance to view other wedding films and we found that every film had something special about it. We knew then and there that our wedding film would be something special as well. We liked how Firetale incorporated the couples personalities in to the wedding films. We have watched our wedding film quite a bit and there are still tears. The details and the moments that were captured we didn't even remember on the day. Working with the Firetale team was good they were like ninjas. They just worked in the background and delivered exactly what we asked. We would recommend Firetale because of the ease of the relationship and because they over delivered above our expectation.

Josiah is someone who can make a wedding video that keeps your memories alive for a lifetime! We took Josiah away to Aitutaki with us because we liked him so much and his relaxed manner . He was amazing to work with and therefore produced the best, funniest and creative video we could ever had hoped for !
He captured our wedding day perfectly, his attention to detail was superb!
We would highly recommend Josiah to anyone wanting a great videographer for their special day , he was very respectful of our space whilst on holiday and wedding day, but still managed to capture everything beautifully !

Our whole family absolutely loved the video, there were lots and lots of tears. Lots of people were really happy and the feelings of the day came back to them. We chose Firetale because we had seen a couple of their films before hand and thought that they would be able to capture the spirit of the day, that we were after. We know that Josiah is an expert with the camera and he knows the value of and celebration of a wedding. They were really great to work with and really enjoyed hanging out with them on the day. It didn't really feel like we were being filmed, we just felt like we were hanging out with our friends.

From the beginning and right up until the wedding Josiah was such a pleasure to work with. He made our wedding plans easy, as he was so easy to talk and plan with.
The first time we sat down with him to Talk through ideas and plans, we knew he was the right guy to video our very special day. He showed us his previous videos and also asked us what style of wedding we were having. He came prepared, ready to go, he had a lot of questions to ask us, and we knew he was on the same page as us. He made clear plans and contacted us with plenty of time for the wedding day plans.
On the day of the wedding, he was quietly in the background with also his second shooter, taking all the shots he needed. He made time for a couple of special moments i wanted that day, filming when my dad first saw me in my dress and then reading out loud a card I got from The groom, which really captured the emotions of the day.
Overall, Joshua and I were so happy with the end result. We felt like Josiah caught every special moment, from getting ready and then at the wedding itself. We tell everyone we know getting married to use Josiah for their wedding video, as he is such a talented guy!! So happy with this video, knowing we will watch it for many years to come.

Firetale is amazing! So down to earth, personable, unique, gifted and super talented. They made us feel comfortable & relaxed on our Wedding day. They made us laugh and calmed our nerves. We are so happy that we chose Firetale to be our videographer. If you are planning an event, make sure you get in touch with Firetale! You won't regret it.

I would give Josiah & Firetale 1000 stars if I could!
Josiah & Kasey are the most friendly, down to earth and amazingly talented people, as soon as they walked through the door of our hectic hotel suite while we were getting ready we automatically felt at ease.
Not really one for the cameras, my new hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of having a videographer to capture our wedding day with Josiah & Kasey's calm and unobtrusive presence doing their magic in the background, they just made it so incredibly easy!!!
We initially weren't going to have a videographer, but honestly we are SO stoked when a friend told us to check out Firetale. As most people who have had a wedding will say the day just flies by so incredibly fast and it's priceless to have video footage of it all that you can relive your special day over and over again.
Josiah is funny, bubbly, professional, calm, whole heap of fun and incredibly passionate and that really shines through his work. I could bang on and on about our Firetale experience.. in summary it was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process!

Firetale’s creativity and natural artistic talent made our film beautiful and authentic! We love how they not only captured our personalities as bride and groom, but also the familiar and much loved mannerisms of our family and friends. We wanted a film that would let us relive the day’s roller coaster of emotions and we are happy to say that our Firetale wedding film does just that. The happiness, tears and nerves all come rushing back as we watch it.
Thank you for telling our story so beautifully.

The film that Firetale created for us was very beautiful and we loved everything about it. We loved the cinematography and the professionalism of the film. It was really a masterpiece. We were on our honeymoon when we first watched it and I teared up a bit. Everything I asked Josiah to put in it was there, he remembered everything and put it in the film. Our family has been very positive and amazed by the wedding film. We had a film made mainly for our family overseas who couldn't be there. It was definitely worth getting a video, some of my family actually said they felt they were there. At the end of the day I wished my family overseas could make it but they couldn't, so I'm very happy I was able to send them a video.
We saw previous work that Firetale had done on Facebook. I saw people liking Firetale Facebook and that is how I first heard of Firetale. I think from there I was going to use Firetale for our wedding film. I liked how it said on their Facebook “Open anytime”.
What really surprised us was how beautiful the cinematography was and how heart felt the whole film was. It was just amazing. How the film started and how it ended, it really captured our story. Firetale has great workmanship and they are very friendly and easy to work with. I just felt it was well worth the investment. A family friend also did some filming on the day but I just think the one that Firetale put together was so much better and it was really really really really good.

Josiah is a man of his words in a nutshell, we had the opportunity to meet up with him prior to our wedding. Me and my husband had a vision for our special day. Once we discussed and toss around a few ideas Josiah pretty much read our minds. Not only was he up front with his ideas he also delivered his vision after seen our amazing wedding video. From the background music to the video editing it brought tears to my eyes after repeatedly watching it. The video was so intimate, natural and all the main part of your special was captured and highlighted throughout. Seriously we love showing our video to our family and friends and also receive so many compliments. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Firetale Weddings as the works speaks for itself. Thank you so much again for making our day very special.
