On 10/24/11, I hired Sureshot Videography to record and produce a video package my wedding that would occur on 12/18/11. I received an e-mail the same day that confirmed my order in the amount above. I asked for confirmation via email on whether everything was set and received it on 10/25/11. I again asked for confirmation via email on 12/07/11 and received the confirmation that same day. The confirmation that I received on 12/07/11 advised that they would arrive at 08:00 AM on 12/18/11. They did not do so; instead they arrived late after my wife had already arrived. After the wedding I followed up via email to inquire on the status of my order on 01/05/12. I received a response that the owner was ill and that no one could follow up with me for a couple of weeks. On 01/23/11 I followed up again to inquire on the status of my order. I was advised that I should be receiving it “shortly.” On 02/07/11 I emailed Sureshot Videography to inquire on the status of my order. No one ever responded. I then proceed to call and after great difficulty reached Keith at SureShot Videography who advised that they were delayed and it would take a couple of more weeks. I followed up via a phone call on 03/13/12 and received the same excuse. Again I followed up via a phone call on 04/09/12. My last contact was via a phone call on 04/13/12 where Keith guaranteed that I would receive my order no later than 04/24/12. I did not receive my order. I have tried to email and call SureShot Videography, but will not take any of my calls nor will they respond to any of my emails.

  • Wedding: July 2011

@rosie785:  Definitely do not hire Magnolia Wedding Films. Do a web search for SureShot Videography and Jesse Clark and you will see the countless nightmare tales of couples who he has scammed. I hired him for my wedding in July and 6 months later his office tells me that they lost my footage and they won’t refund my money.

  • Wedding: September 2011

I am also one Jesse’s victims. Magnolia Wedding Films, SureShot Videography, SureShot Portraits…. ALL THE SAME LOSER!!!!!! Our wedding was September 10th of 2011 and we hired him the February before the wedding. It was a promotion for the “premier package” deal and the price was excellent. Jesse told us that we would have our highlight video before we were home from our honeymoon and that our finished video would be done by the end of October, 6 weeks to complete. Sounded amazing so we hired him. Instead of the usual $1200 it was only $850 and it was to include 6 hours of footage, 2 fully edited 90 minute HD DVD’s, bride perpetration and family and friend interviews, a custom interactive DVD menu, a sterling silver plated DVD case with our wedding photo, and a fully edited 10 minute youtube highlight video. 3 months later, after getting in touch with the actual person that Jesse sent to film our wedding, we got a highlight video from him, not Jesse. It was only 3 minutes long, not 10 and was not at all the color OR quality that Jesse’s other video’s that were on Vimeo were and that I was expecting. Major disappointment. And when I questioned Jesse, he told me that “i find you have been real difficult since your wedding”. WOW, what did I get myself into….. Did anyone else hire SureShot based on that gorgeous wedding highlight video he posted on Vimeo? This was the link at one point http://vimeo.com/17459754 It was a cute young couple, the reception looked like some really cool old dive bar with wood paneling, etc… and one of the songs was a Goo Goo Dolls song, Black Balloon. I started poking around asking Jesse questions about it, because it was just so beautiful and I had another friend that wanted that location for a reception, and after he evaded my question for weeks, he finally told me that it was a wedding he filmed for friends in Ohio some time back. Wouldn’t you know that he took the video down off of Vimeo that same week, and it has been missing ever since. So now, not only is he a lying thieving scumbag, but he’s a plagiarizing one as well. I wonder if the Mass Department of Revenue and the IRS know that he had everyone writing the checks to his name or his wife Veronica Clark’s name instead of SureShot. Filming over 100 weddings a year and charging between $500-$1700 for services, he must have to pay some serious taxes? I have a scanned copy of his brochure that he gave me at our consult if anyone needs a copy for their records. I have given him every opportunity to redeem himself, either by returning my money or giving me my raw footage. I even let him know that I would be okay with just raw footage, as my new husbands beloved grandmother passed away right after the wedding and Jesse’s video footage was the last of anything that we had documented with her….. He has chosen not to answer my emails or return my calls, so now I will proceed with my blood-sucking attorney (she’s female and passed the bar, Jesse probably won’t like that http://abovethelaw.com/2010/07/when-unemployed-law-students-attack/ ) Good luck to everyone else out there, I hope you fare better than we did….

I have personally not encountered Jesse Clark or Magnolia Films however i have found HORRIBLE reviews about him and that company and supposedly he changed his company name from SureShot Videography to Magnolia Films.  I am quite disturbed that on this site the vendor review for Magnolia Films is only 1 and it is a good review… i feel that these brides that got ripped off need to place their reviews on there to save other brides heartache.  Spread the knowledge around.
