I am multi Emmy Award Winning wedding filmmaker based in Hoover, AL. My day job is working as a videographer at The University of Montevallo. Before that, I was an award winning photojournalist that traveled the country filming stories for national broadcasts. That has contributed to my filming style by being able to act as a fly on the wall while still capturing special moments.

I got into wedding filmmaking seven years ago and fell in love with it. I really love being able to work with a couple to make a film about their love that they will forever cherish. I'm really passionate about filming in a way that when you watch the video 10 years down the line it will instantly take you back to that day. Wedding photos are great but nothing really take you back to that moment like video will. 

I'd love to chat with you about your upcoming wedding. Send me a message if you would like to get more information on what I can do for you to make your wedding day easier and more memorable.

"Jake was more than exceptional for our wedding day!! Not only does he have a great artistic eye for detail, but always made us feel super comfortable and intrusive to the process. Jake went above and beyond to provide the best service for our wedding day. 
The weather was unfortunately not in our favor, however Jake made sure to make our video feel just as magical as it would of been had the rained stopped. Honestly, because of Jake's video it made me feel so appreciative of the rain because it looks so cinematic and beautiful! No matter the situation, Jake will surely deliver and have you rewatching the video over and over to relive your day"

"Jake Cannon is an incredible videographer! He flew all the way to Maryland to capture our wedding. After several flight delays and other travel challenges, he still made it to the wedding on time and with a positive attitude. Not only is he reliable, but he captures GORGEOUS footage while never once interfering with the flow of the event. He did a great job capturing all the special moments, big and small, and I recommend him to anyone looking for a videographer."

Jessica and Brandon

"Booking with Jake Cannon Films for our wedding videography had to be one of the best and easiest decisions throughout all of our wedding planning phase! Both of our videographers, Jake and Phillip, were nothing less than a pure asset to our special day and made it very clear that they enjoy both  filming and the couples they work with. In my opinion, there aren’t enough good and positive things to say about Jake and his videography business. 
Jake and Phillip were both an integral part of our wedding day for ensuring Brandon and I will have a priceless capturing of the most important day of lives to watch countless times in the years and decades to come! The professionalism displayed from the first time meeting to our entire wedding day is unparalleled. Thank you again for everything, couldn’t recommend a better videographer than you!"

Dallas and Victor

"Jake was such an important part of our big day! From our very first interaction, he was always extremely professional, easy to communicate with, and made us feel like old friends. He was so attentive to our specific wants and needs, and worked seamlessly with our other vendors to capture our special day. I would recommend Jake over and over and over again!"

Lexy and Connor

"I can not say enough good things about Jake Cannon and his work. He is very professional, personable, and always down for a good laugh! On the day of the wedding, he was on time, stayed on schedule, was able to collaborate with my other photographer, and captured ALL the important moments flawlessly. You only get one chance to go back and relive your day, and my husband and I were not at all disappointed with the footage we got back. He managed to capture the day and our personalities perfectly! If I had the chance to go back, I would hire him all over again. Trusting someone with the task to capture your day is scary, but Jake made it easy and fun!"

Alex and Tim

"Jake did such an amazing job making my special day even more special! He is not only so accommodating to your schedule, he is super smart and talented and comes up with the best ideas to make your video beautiful and unique! He is so sweet and easy to work with on such a stressful day and does whatever he needs to do to make you happy. He’s super easy to be around, even while doing awkward things like changing into your dress or kissing your new hubby/wifey over and over again for great video content. Not only all of this, my video turned out perfect and everything I could have wanted it to be and even more. And I got it back in such a reasonable time. I couldn’t recommend him enough!!!!"

Sierra and Jonathan

"Asking Jake to be our wedding videographer was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. Not only was he professional, he displayed such compassion and patience when faced with the chaotic nature of the day! He made everything so simple and effortless. We had a quick return on our videos, and they were above and beyond what we could ever ask for! Jake had such a talent for capturing the most special and unique moments of our day; his decisions of which cuts to put in our video were well thought out, and worked seamlessly together. Jake was great with directing exactly what was needed to our friends and family and also worked side by side with our two photographers to make sure everyone involved was getting the absolute best for Jonathan and me. I very highly recommend you choose Jake for your special day. You will not regret a single moment!"
