EMP MEDIA SERVICES
Being in this business, you get to capture incredibly intimate moments. Along the way, some of my clients have said some wonderful, kind words about the final products I have created for them.
Here are some of their reviews!
Jeremy filmed our wedding in Lake Cowichan, BC in April 2021. Leading up to the event he was very understanding and flexible and made planning a wedding during a pandemic significantly easier. His communication was excellent, as he was accessible, prompt and detailed with his responses. The day of he was so personable and easy to get along with. He made us feel so relaxed and we never once felt like we were 'on camera'.
Additionally, when he dropped off the package with the wedding video he packaged it up in a cute little box with the theme of 'a night at the movies'. It made receiving the package so exciting and so personal. We highly recommend Jeremy for all of your wedding videography needs!
Jeremy worked closely with us throughout the entire wedding process, and was very flexible when plans were changed due to the pandemic. Through every step of the way, he helped us, and went the extra mile for everything, from wading into a river to get a better shot, to coaching us on the best poses for different settings. He worked around our schedules and made sure that we could shoot in the settings and venues that we always envisioned for our special day. He also worked fast, and had out photos printed and edited before the dates that he promised. The final result was one that we were so pleased with, and left our families and friends asking where we had gone to get this quality of picture.
We had originally hired Jeremy to do videography for our May, 2020 wedding, however like everyone else in this situation, we've had to postpone our "big celebration" to next year. We still decided to do a small backyard wedding just to get the legal paperwork done, and we asked Jeremy to come shoot this backyard ceremony. Jeremy did a FANTASTIC job. My husband and I were really impressed with Jeremy's upbeat attitude and how easygoing he was. Our families also only had positive things to say about Jeremy. In addition to having a great personality, we were extremely happy with the quality of photos. He really captured the essence of our relationship in the photos. We're not huge "let's plaster photos of ourselves all over our home" people, but we already have plans to print and frame many of the photos that Jeremy took of us.
My husband and I hired Jeremy as our Videographer for our wedding in July! Jeremy is very friendly, personable and professional, and the correspondence/communication was excellent!
As awkward as it may be to be followed around with a camera, he made us all feel very comfortable. He went above and beyond to get the best shots and the final product was better than we could have hoped! I would highly recommend his services!
Destination Wedding Photography
Jeremy was an absolute pleasure to have as a photographer. His professionalism, encouragement, flexibility and accommodating nature made our day so enjoyable. He was also so thorough with his attention to detail. He wasn’t afraid to try different shots and angles while also capturing the incredible emotion and energy of the day. His photos provide us with so much joy that we couldn’t imagine having anyone else take our wedding photos.
We hired Jeremy as a videographer for our Sep 3, 2019 wedding at Rowena's Inn on the River. From the beginning Jeremy was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was receptive and encouraging to our ideas, but also not afraid to make suggestions for changes. On the day of he was prepared, attentive and professional. Jeremy caught so many details in our wedding video! The finished product is wonderful, and is the perfect memory of our special day! I would highly recommend his services!
Jeremy is an incredibly down to earth, and professional photographer. We felt completely at ease with him behind the lense, I didnt feel like it was too rigid or staged. the photos and his style of photo taking, felt natural and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend EMP media services for any event. my family and I are thrilled with our results.
Rami Kahlon - Odd Girl Director
I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy Hannaford on my short film “Odd Girl.” He was punctual, professional, and brought a spirited attitude to set. Jeremy took many opportunities to catch behind the scenes photos without being disruptive. His photos intimately caught our cast and crew as they navigated their way through the film set, resulting in beautiful, personal portraits of each individual. He was also great at reminding me of the photos that were still needed - such as photos for press. This attention to detail and personal involvement in the film created a memorable experience with Jeremy Hannaford and the cast and crew of “Odd Girl.”
You have taken a big and unknown task to videotape the funeral of my late, beloved sister Valentina. THANK YOU! It was the hardest day for me so far, yet I was not alone and it helped. The saddest part was that the parents were unable to come. As we all wanted for them to be with us. I watched the video and shared it with my family. You have done a great job, I was amazed with pictures and quality of the recording. You have captured the moments of our sorrow and did it so gentle and professionally. Every moment made me cry, remembering the music and the video and memorial pictures were very well put together. At the same time, the video gave me hope and memory of the moment that will be always with me.
Jeremy was amazing to work with and would highly recommend his work! We hired him to video our wedding at the end of August. The finished product was so wonderful and was done so quickly! He was great and quick to email back and forth with as well. He made the entire experience feel really comfortable, which is quite challenging with a camera right there! We are so happy with our wedding videos that we get to look back on for many years to come.

Destination Wedding Photography
A fantastic photographer that has such an eye for the perfect shot. He works so hard to make sure his clients are over the moon happy. 10/10 would recommend for all photography and videography needs!
Jeremy has helped out on several projects that I have been a part of, whether it's stills for a music video, concerts, feature films, or my destination wedding. Always great to have him on board. Awesome personality, great work ethic and amazing photographs. Fully recommend for anything and everything you've got going on
We splurged on our photographer and weren’t going to get a videographer. Well...we are so thankful we found Jeremy!! He was an absolute pleasure to be around and he worked so well with our photographer. Not to mention Jeremy worked his a** off and a few of our guests mentioned to us how hard he worked. We got our videos and we could not be happier!! Thanks so much Jeremy!! aka “Matilda”
Where to begin! Jeremy kindly accepted the challenge of being our photographer with some video for the full day for our wedding on July 8, 2018. He also captured our engagement photos in November of 2017. Jeremy has been extremely professional with communication, attitude, attire, quality, and his work ethic is exactly what you want for your special moments. He is learning and he is honest about it. You can have an open conversation about hopes and wants at any time and work together to make sure the product is exactly or better than you imagined! He is the photographer that will walk backwards into bushes to get the perfect lighting and be lying on the ground, pressed up against a wall to get the perfect angle, and he will brush off your husband’s muddy shoes with his own hands so it doesn’t show in the shot! He helped us laugh when we were stressed and felt we were running out of time. He takes a moment to make sure the lighting is just right so I have so many amazing photos. I even have some I didn’t even think to put on the shot list and these memories are going to last a lifetime. If you are thinking about hiring a photographer or videographer for your special moments, then know that Jeremy will be the one to help that vision come true!!
Jeremy was hired last minute to do our videography for our wedding and he was the greatest decision we made! He was professional, listened to our needs and worked with our timeline perfectly!
He captured every single detail we had asked for, including plenty of footage of our guests, which was really lovely to watch! We were also amazed at how quickly our video + documentary was prepared! Jeremy has a great eye for detail!
We really appreciated the extra work he did in finding the actual Persian songs that played throughout our ceremony/our reception for our video! I can't imagine how difficult that was--especially as we were your first Persian wedding!
Thank you again for your work! We'll be enjoying it for the rest of our lives!
Maternity Family Shoot
I had an amazing experience. Jeremy was super professional but also very laid back. I’m usually super nervous in front of the camera but he made me feel very comfortable. He has a great eye and gives great direction, but is also open to ideas. He captured amazing photos of our family just before my baby girl was born. Thank you so much for such a memorable experience Jeremy! You gave us fantastic photos that captured such a beautiful moment in our lives.
