I had been on the fence about whether or not to hire a videographer. I met with Julie and once I saw the quality of their work, I knew I had wanted to work with them.
Chris and Julie were so great on our wedding day. You hardly noticed they were with you, but I was so glad they were! They both go above and beyond what you would expect from a videographer. Julie helped me fix my headpiece and veil and even pulled a bobby pin out of her own hair for me! She kept us on time during the reception and even had our DJ switch the music around to keep people dancing.
They are very quick to respond to email and answer any questions. When we watched the video the first time we had a small issue with the audio on one part of our ceremony and Chris fixed it and had new videos for us the next day. All of our family and friends have commented that they have never seen a video like ours and that they love it.
We are so happy that we invested in a video and will always treasure it!

We didn't know if videography was something we needed for our big day. But, after seeing the work of BlueSkies we knew that we did! The finished product absolutely exceeded our expectations and is something that we will treasure for years to come. Julie and Chris were highly professional throughout the entire process. They even went above and beyond by helping to coordinate the day-of timeline. Julie recommended a great hair/make up artist when mine feel through at the last minute - what a life saver!! Chris captured all footage in a very non-intrusive way and was a true professional the day of! Very quick turn around time with final product. Very high-end, professional finished product. We couldn't be more pleased!

Our family has now used Blue Skies for two weddings: One in August of 2011 and one in October 2012 (two sisters). Julie was instrumental in helping with all planning, particularly with the first wedding. You don't need to pay a wedding planner if you use Blue Skies. If asked, Julie will recommend several vendors for each service but most importantly will create a timeline for the wedding day that makes the day run smoothly, avoiding additional chaos and anxiety. Throughout the day she gently but effectively keeps things moving, which is critical for the wedding party and guests. Weddings are expensive, but this is one area you must invest in. Blue Skies videos are beautifully and professionally produced, and you won't even remember that they were present during the activities of the day. The videographers are not intrusive. It is important to cover all the activities that you feel are important to be included in your video. The bride and groom select the music, which is very cool as it lends more of their character to the video. PARENTS/BRIDE/GROOM LISTEN UP. This is the one thing you will always have that captures so much more of the day than a photo album. It truly is the best money spent. You will always be grateful you invested in this permanent keepsake.

I was married in a huge, red farm barn in West Jefferson, Ohio on Saturday, April 10, 2010 -- on my Aunt Crystal's & Uncle Robert's farm. Having planned this wedding for almost two years, two weeks before the wedding, I saw my cousin's wedding video -- also from Blue Skies (she was married in January 2010) and had a little freak out session about if I needed video or not. So I met with the supposedly best video companies in Columbus and saved my last meeting for meeting with Blue Skies. The other meetings went fine but I wasn't knocked out of my socks when watching other videos. So, my mom & I met with Julie, one of the owners and saw video samples of their past weddings (Julie didn't know I had already seen my cousin's video from a few months ago). I was amazed and blown away (same feeling after watching my cousin's video) and signed a contract on the spot.
On our wedding day, most of our vendors did what they were hired for, but when we had some issues with the photographer being BEYOND SLOW, Julie stepped in and helped direct everyone in my family (we had a ton of family pictures). For pictures after the ceremony, we wanted to walk around the property and Julie (and her husband Chris) clearly had a ton of ideas that were modern and non-posed, but my photographer (I won't say their company name) was again slow and didn't have any ideas. He just kept taking pictures at what Julie and Chris were doing with us. At the reception, Julie kept us on track with each event which which discussed prior to the wedding day and both my new husband and I agreed that Blue Skies were truly the "wedding professionals" at the wedding, they knew everything wedding related, and that some of the other vendors (the photographer mainly) were just "doing their job" and did nothing to go beyond and above what they were contracted to do.
We came home from our honeymoon eight days later to our video complete. We watched it that night and I honestly don't know how Julie and Chris got the shots they got. Every shot is perfect. every sound is crystal clear, the entire video just flows so pretty and compared to the other video companies samples I've seen, no one else in the Columbus area compares to Blue Skies. Their prices at first were a little out of my budget, but after seeing my cousin's video and now mine, I now know you get what you pay for and you won't be disappointed. This vendor was easily the best purchase and vendor of our day. I can't believe we almost didn't do video and now I have this beautiful documentary of our wedding day to someday show our kids. And the still pictures, were horrible. Both my mom and I agree, thank god we found Blue Skies.
