In our industry, it’s impossible to execute an incredible event without the help of other dynamic vendors. In our Vendor Features, we learn more about the people who we love to work with event after event, and year after year. Next up is Justin Chan, Owner of Valley Creek Productions.
Justin Chan started Valley Creek Productions in 2005 after finishing his degree in Broadcast Communications from Temple University. At that time, he began working on his Master’s Degree in business at Penn State. Valley Creek Productions was one of the side jobs that Justin had while in school, and production work continued to grow as a passion. It grew from there, and he took it full-time in 2011… they’ve been growing ever since!
The company is named after Valley Creek, that flows through Chester County and Valley Forge National Historic Park. Their dynamic team crafts video for any projects, including weddings, corporate events, and promotional films.
Voted Best Video Production Company by Main Line Today Magazine, ‘The Knot Best of Weddings” in Videography for 2018 and 2019, one of the Top Three Videographers in Philadelphia by Philly Hot List the past five years, and winner of WeddingWire’s Couples Choice Award the past nine years. Client satisfaction is their top priority, and they pride themselves on creating captivating videos of the highest quality.

Favorite Wedding Month?
Favorite Spot in Philadelphia?
Chinatown, best food in the city. Its been tradition to go down with family several times a year since I was a kid. Good way to connect with the Chinese side of my heritage.
Favorite thing about your career?
Capturing content of important events is always fun for us – knowing we preserved those moments to re-live later. We also love being a part of the event community in Philadelphia. Making friends through various event associations and chambers of commerce is fun for us and helps us do our job better.
What is your Best Advice for Potential Clients?
Everyone thinks video is a “would be nice” add on for a wedding or event. There is so many things that happen on a wedding day that only video can capture, and if you don’t have a professional with you to capture them you won’t have any way to re-live them in the future.
What is your favorite movie?
Star Trek (generally any of the original features, not the new ones)
What wedding trends are you loving?
Drones are a big trend with video in the past few years. Our team are all FAA licensed and insured for commercial drone flight. We love flying and capturing cool shots of wedding venues, churches, and couples’ homes.
