Words alone cannot fully express how incredibly talented Mike Henriques and his Artistic Wedding Films team is. My husband and I just watched our video for the first time (Mike completed it WAY ahead of schedule, too!) with our families and we were BLOWN away by both the quality... Read More and artistic vision of the film AND his ability to capture the most exciting and happiest day of our lives. Your wedding day flies by all too quickly and Mike is able to preserve your memories forever! It was fantastic to catch up on things we'd missed, to see what our wedding mass was like (since our backs were to the audience!) and to re-live the experience. Mike is a true professional and has an uncanny ability to blend into your wedding day - he never made us feel artificial, uncomfortable or "on display" and he did an amazing job of capturing us as we naturally were. Thank you to Mike and the entire Artistic Wedding Films team! Your time, energy and efforts are appreciated more than you'll ever know! :)

I knew 4 years before my own wedding, before I even knew my husband, that I was going to hire Mike and his team to film my wedding someday. The first time I watched one of his films I was blown away with the perfection and attention to detail of every aspect throughout the... Read More film. Fast forward a couple of years, I'm engaged and planning our wedding! We booked our venue a year and a half in advance and the next phone call was to book Mike and his team! I knew he had to be our first vendor to book as he books up extremely fast due to his popularity in the Boston area. I eagerly emailed him our date and kept my fingers crossed he would be available! His quick response put my mind at ease as he told me he would be able to shoot our wedding! Oh yes! Lucky lucky us!!! :-) We booked the largest package, the Feature Film! This day only comes once and I wanted the most coverage and detail as possible! As my husband and I always say, Go big or Go Home! We want the best and that's what you will get from Mike and his team! Mike and Dee, his office assistant, were so helpful throughout the entire process of planning and very prompt with responding to emails and phone calls throughout all of the planning. I could feel Mikes energy and excitement over the phone which made the planning process even better as he is a blast to work with! On the day of the wedding, Mike and his crew showed up to start filming. Mike and Pam and team make you feel right at ease with the way they operate. They are so professional and work wonderfully with the other vendors, the entire process is seamless! Mike even would show us little clips on his camera of bits and pieces he had filmed earlier because he knew how excited we were about everything! We had so much fun with the filming, we couldn't wait to see the final edit! Mike delivered our film to us 2 months ahead of schedule! The first time we watched our feature film video, my husband and I cried! We felt like we were watching a Hollywood movie of our love story! The crew captured our emotions and love for each other perfectly throughout the entire day, never missing a beat! Then, a few days later, the Blu-Ray edited version with scene selection of the rest of our special day arrives on our doorstep (Beautifully packaged I must add!) Again, our jaws dropped as we turned it on to the main page and saw a beautiful panoramic picture of us, then went scene by scene and relived everything all over again! Your wedding day is such a blur, that having the video to look back on allows you to see things you may have missed, and also brings back those feelings of each special moment to relive over and over again! My husband and I can't stress to people enough the importance of having your wedding filmed. If you are fortunate enough to book Artistic Wedding Films for your special day, I promise you, you will not be disappointed! They are worth EVERY penny a million times over! Don't hesitate-book the Feature Film! Believe me, you will be happy you did! We can't thank Mike and his team enough for their outstanding professionalism and delivering us the most precious gift of our wedding movie that we watch over and over and over again! We will treasure our movie forever! :-)

Selecting Artistic Wedding Films was truly one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding. Mike and his team so perfectly captured the fun, joy, and love from our wedding day! When originally researching possible videographers, I was terrified of having our video feel... Read More forced or inauthentic in any way. Mike put those fears to rest as soon as he arrived to film, making everyone in the bridal party feel completely at ease and relaxed. The entire AWF team was so enjoyable to work with - from the initial emails and phone conversations, to the day of our wedding, to the final footage and package (with an adorable surprise gift), everything was so organized and professional. After receiving our highlight film, I shared the link on my Facebook so all of our guests would be able to see the video as well. I received comments, texts, and calls from not only our wedding guests, but a number of other individuals remarking on how beautiful the film turned out and how unexpectedly emotional they became while watching it (all of the feels is a real thing with AWF). One of the things I cherish most about the video is being able to see so many of the amazing reactions and interactions of our guests that I would never have seen without the footage. Mike and his team truly portrayed the essence of our day - from start to finish. Every time I get that "I wish we could do our wedding again" feeling, I rewatch our video I am completely transported back to the happiest day of our lives. I am so grateful for the AWF team and would highly recommend them to any couple in search of a gorgeous and authentic wedding film.

My husband and I had our dream wedding at Fort Adams in Newport this past fall. The day was truly breathtaking, and Mike the AWF team captured every moment of it perfectly. Mike went above and beyond (without even being asked) to ensure that our wedding video was flawless.... Read More Plus, the AWF team is a joy to have around on the actual wedding day. So many of our bridesmaids, groomsmen, and guests raved about Mike and his team at the wedding -- "Where did you find your videographers? They are AWESOME!" was just one of many great reviews we heard throughout the day. And my husband and I could not agree more. You don't realize how much time you'll spend with your vendors on the day of your wedding, so it is really important that you find not only talented vendors, but kind, fun people to share your day. I will say ... "patience is a virtue" while waiting for your video ... but I promise you that your wedding video will be worth every single second of the wait! AWF nailed it and we could not be happier!

Artistic Wedding Films is nothing short of amazing! Needless to say, wedding planning can be stressful; however these guys found a way to be very professional while making the whole experience enjoyable. At one point during the 'First Look' it was realized that nobody had... Read More picked up the boutonnieres...lo and behold, the Artistic staff left to go pick them up for us, and somehow still made sure the filming was not interrupted! It had been a few months of my wife and I eagerly awaiting to receive our video, but wow, it was worth waiting for their art to be complete. Our wedding night was captured beautifully. Emotions stood strong on the first time watching the clips, and just seemed to build each time thereafter! The wedding was a night filled with love beyond us as the couple; it extended through all branches of our family and friends. These moments will now forever be treasured. The joy in my father, the spirit in my mother, and warm-hearted honest welcoming from my in-laws are each there. Jamie had been planning her 'Father-Daughter' dance since high school. You would think that special moment building throughout these years could not be captured through the lens, but yet, it certainly was. If you want quality in both video and staff, you will want to hire this company. With sincere thanks to our Video team, -Stash(groom) & Jamie (bride)

WOW! We are so thrilled with our video from Artistic Wedding Films. In the beginning we were unsure of how to budget to use this vendor as they were pricier then others, but after speaking to Mike over the phone, we knew his team would be the best for our day and we do not have... Read More a single regret! Neal and Crystal were the ones to join us on our wedding day, and they were both fun, kind, and great to hang out with the day of. We never felt we had to stage anything which was important, and they did a great job catching natural moments of not only us, but family and friends enjoying the ceremony and reception. It was fun to have them around and we were sad to say goodbye at the end of the night. They not only edited our main wedding film, but as a bonus they made us a link for our wedding dance (a special Salsa/Bachata rouine that we practiced for weeks in advance) and edited that one really nicely as well. I was just expecting a straight shot for the entire thing, but they cut different angles for us and it looks amazing as well! If you are looking for an amazing treasure to have for the rest of your life - look no further. We are so glad that we splurged on this and cut our budget in other parts of our wedding in order to make it work. Thank you so much Neal & Crystal!

My husband and I decided to do a small destination wedding for our Big Day in Newport, RI (a favorite destination of ours). It was to be a very small and intimate ceremony and luncheon at Castle Hill Inn. My mother in law generously offered to get us a wedding videographer. We... Read More were so moved to think that we'd have a way to relive our special day forever. So obviously, we took her up on her offer! I spent hours researching videographers. I am a designer myself, so I am extremely picky when it comes to quality and details. When I first found AWF's website and got a chance to see some of their past films, there was no denying that this was a talented group. I contacted them and ended up speaking with Mike. Wow, what a nice guy! Personable, professional. You can tell he really knew his stuff and I appreciated all of the info he was able to share with me. It's not ideal to be planning an entire wedding remote since you don't get a chance to meet face-to-face with vendors. But our phone conversation went so well that I felt comfortable moving forward and we decided to hire AWF. In preparation of the big day, he sent us a questionnaire to fill out with all of the important details that were important to the final film (about us, event details, music preferences, etc ). I had a particular song in mind that I envisioned for our video. They happily took my suggestion. And I was anxious to see how our wedding would mesh with my song choice. On the day of the wedding, Mike and one of his crew members met us at our venue. We were getting ready together on-site at one of Castle Hill's beach cottages. It POURED rain that day. But the guys did a lovely job and didn't let the rain hold them back. Nerves were running high that morning, with anticipation of the the day ahead. But Mike did such an amazing job of being engaging, professional, and calming all at once. This was our first ever meeting in person since everything up until this point was via phone or email. I was pleasantly surpassed to find that talking to him was like talking to an old friend. Seriously, can't say enough what a genuinely nice guy! I was nervous that being "on film" during these personal, intimate moments would feel uncomfortable. But they made us feel right at home. And at moments, you even forget they were there filming away. God bless their artistic eye. Some of the angles and shots, just wow. It takes a true artist to do the kind of work they do. Overall they were a treat to work with on our wedding day. We left off that it would be a few months until our film would be ready and I did my best to be patient haha, but it wasn't easy since I was just so darn excited to see the final delivery. I checked in around December (three months after our wedding) and was told that it'd still be a little bit longer. I was a little bummed because my ideal was that I'd have the video in time for the holidays... Literally the day before Christmas, they emailed me with the link to my video! What a happy surprise. We were blown away by the film. Of course I balled my eyes ut all over again. What a special thing to sit down with my husband and relive our day together. It was so beautifully done. And the inclusion of my song choice for the intro was just as perfect as I imagined it could be. We can't say enough great things about Mike and his team. If you should be lucky enough to afford the luxury of having a wedding videographer, look no further than Artistic Wedding Films!!

It was SO helpful to have this conversation and to hear what Neal suggested when it came to these things. When Neal and Myles arrived on the big day, they were prompt, polite and essentially just flies on the walls. They also are very open to specific shots requested from the bride/groom.

We chose to add aerial shots taken by their drone on the wedding day, which we also highly recommend since it’s so unique. I wouldn’t think twice about passing this company on to any of my closest friends.
