At first my fiance (now husband) did not feel the need to have a videographer, but after our first call with Mike he was convinced. Since then, Mike has been accommodating and so easy to work with. Even when there with problems with other vendors, Mike was flexible and stepped up to make our day so much easier for us. But on top of that, he really embraced what the day meant for us - love and family. He was so personable and even showed up to our welcome reception the night before to get to know us even better. As a surprise, Mike released a highlight video the week after our wedding. It was incredible. As you can tell from his sample videos, he truly does amazing work. Our other vendors loved working with him, but no one more than us. We highly recommend and his crew for anyone looking for a top notch videographer.
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 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.
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 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! :-)
Artistic Wedding Films is the absolute best videographer that I could have selected to capture our wedding day. We worked mainly with Mike who was willing to accommodate us every step of the way. As we were planning our wedding, we mentioned that we would be having a horse-drawn carriage. Mike immediately suggested using a drone to capture the moment. We felt that he was just as excited as we were about our wedding day. Mike and his team were easy to work with and even arrived to the hotel bright and early coincidentally dressed to match our wedding color theme. He has a great sense of humor, which helped me relax as I was feeling anxious/nervous because we were behind schedule. Mike helped put me at ease as he showed me beautiful clips that he was taking while I was having my hair & makeup done. The entire bridal party also commented about how fun he was to be around. The entire crew was very professional and focused the entire day. I saw them running around behind-the-scenes and working hard outside on a typical hot August day. They worked so well with all my other vendors and as a team really helping one another out. It can feel pretty awkward to be in front of the camera, but the team works so efficiently and blends so well into the background that everything felt natural. Mike is creative, energetic, and motivated – he genuinely enjoys capturing wedding videography and getting to know the couples. I truly enjoyed having him and his team as part of our special day. I cannot wait to see our wedding video. I would recommend Artistic Wedding Films fully without hesitation to anyone looking for an amazing wedding videographer!
I couldn't have picked a better videographer. Mike was so awesome the day of my wedding. He and his team helped keep everyone on schedule and had me laughing throughout the day. Their work is amazing and I really enjoyed working with them. I highly recommend them!
Since Mike and his crew had done my brother and sister In laws wedding 6 years ago I knew I was going to have them do my wedding day! To this day I cry watching my brothers wedding video and I was so excited to get my wedding shot by them! Mike and his partner made everyone feel so comfortable and even helped with the “what to do’s” during the entire wedding from the getting ready process to the moment they left at the end of the night! Weddings can be so stressful and to have Mike just help through out the whole process, exchange some laughs and smiles made my special day that much more enjoyable! He worked with my husband and I when we wanted to make some adjustments to our wedding video and the final product was exactly what we wanted! He and his team do such a beautiful job and I can’t rant and rave enough about how amazing they are!!
Jon and I chose Artistic Wedding Films through a recommendation of friends and they did NOT disappoint! Mike and his team were incredibly responsive, professional and made us feel at ease throughout the entire wedding process. The day of Mike and his team were AMAZING! They had us laughing and brought such a positive happy vibe with them. They even kept me as the bride moving along as I easily get distracted and was already running behind schedule! I used to work in the wedding business and have seen countless wedding videos and Artistic Wedding Films are by far THE BEST! Our entire bridal party commented in the days after about how awesome Mike and the team were and wanted their info for future events. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ARTISTIC WEDDING FILMS!!
Mike and his team are an amazingly talented group. They were so easy to work with, and brought such a great laid back vibe to an otherwise hectic day. The final product (our trailer video) had us speechless. They not only got our best moments from the day, but really reflected our personalities in the finished product. Huge bonus for taking into account our music requests for the video, not to mention the quality of the video itself. This is fantastic vendor and I can't speak highly enough!
"Outstanding" doesn't scratch the surface as to how amazing Mike Henriques and his team were in capturing the big picture as well as the intimate nuances of my daughter's wedding day last October. Cape Cod in the fall provided a beautiful backdrop for her special day. However, Mike went above and beyond to capture all of the special moments, even providing a drone over the outdoor ceremony! The final video is top notch and a real treasure. We will continue to recommend Artistic Wedding Films to everyone who will listen. They are worth every penny.
I am so glad I chose Artistic Wedding Films to capture my wedding day. I have watched the video countless times and it has brought joy to my family and friends who have seen it. People have been shocked by how well done it was, and we will cherish it forever! One of the best investments we made, easily!!
We absolutely LOVED working with Artistic Wedding Films! I searched a LOT for the perfect videographer and was impressed by EVERYTHING they did. We had an epic experience with them from start to finish and Crystal and Neal were AMAZING on our day. They were professional, brilliant, creative, kind and supportive. I loved that I could feel that they were equally as excited about our day as we were!! I know our video will be perfect and I will watch it over and over again!
Six years ago, Artistic Wedding Films captured our wedding day. We had the pleasure of being with them again for my sister-in-laws wedding this May. We encouraged them to hire a videographer because AWF captured such special moments of us and our guests on our wedding day. We watch our video every anniversary and it brings back such great memories and moments. Our wedding film is so valuable to us and we will forever cherish these intimate moments. Mike H is so personable and has such great energy but is also behind the scenes. We can not thank him enough and are so appreciative for what he has done for us and are looking forward to see what he creates for my sister-in-law. We highly recommend Artistic Wedding Films for your special day as it has brought so much joy for us for the past 6 years and counting! J & J Gehret
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. 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 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 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 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!!
My husband and I can’t say enough great things about Artistic Wedding Films! Over the past year we worked with their Mike Henriques and his team who are all extremely professional and passionate about their work. Mike, along with the Office Manager, Dee, were our initial contacts and are who we worked with throughout the process, aside from on the actual day of our wedding. They were always responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! Neal and Myles were our day-of videographers. Neal contacted us about a week prior to the wedding to go over our detailed wedding questionnaire (which we had filled out prior) and to make sure we were on the same page with the wedding timeline and shots we wanted to capture. 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 received our final edit just this past week and we were truly blown away. This team is clearly talented. It’s been very fun looking back on our special day, especially when its edited so beautifully! 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.
The best! Hire Artistic Wedding Films - you will be thrilled!! Our wedding video is a masterpiece. My husband and I have been together for more than 10 years and finally decided to get married. We had an absolutely amazing day and one of my top priorities was to have a beautiful wedding video as a way to enjoy our memories for many years to come. I did a lot of research before selecting Artistic Wedding Films - but as soon as I met Mike, I knew we were in good hands. I cannot believe how lucky I feel to have found Artistic Wedding Films. Mike and his team were born to do this job. Mike's enthusiasm, professionalism, talent, heart-felt approach and deep commitment to not just producing a great wedding video, but to producing a video that illustrates your love story… is magical. I cannot thank him enough for a video that has allowed us to savor our special day and to have an heirloom that I know our family will enjoy for a long time. My deepest gratitude to Mike and Team.
Artistic Wedding Films is such an amazing company to work with! They were more than accommodating throughout the planning process and especially when it came to choosing the package that worked best for our wedding day. I would highly recommend them as their professionalism and utmost attention to detail does not go unnoticed. The team was exceptional to work with throughout the wedding day and was up for anything in order to get some great shots. Selecting Artistic Wedding Films to capture your day will be the best and easiest decision you could make! Mike and Team goes out of their way to beautifully preserve your wedding day memories, allowing you to relive them over and over again. Thank you so much to the entire team!
Mike Henriques and his crew at Artistic Wedding Films are incredible! They filmed my cousin's wedding a couple years prior and she highly recommended them. From the start, they quickly respond to my email and then we set up a phone appointment to learn about what they have to offer. Mike was super pleasant over the phone and appeared to be genuinely excited to capture our wedding. On the big day, my family and friends kept telling me how awesome the videographer crew was and it looked like they were getting great footage- they were right! We are so happy with our wedding video! It came out even better than expected. They did a great job capturing the special moments and we loved their song choices. Our only complaint was that the assistant videographer was 45 minutes late to film the groom and his family prior to the wedding which was stressful and lost valuable moments not captured on film. However, everything else was so top notch that I cannot recommend them enough.
Absolutely in love with my wedding video. Mike was so professional and made me feel so comfortable during the whole process. I was extremely nervous and he made jokes to calm me down. He delivered the video prior to the expected date. Couldn't be happier, best quality and great editing .
Neal and his team were a delight to work with. They were friendly, sweet, available when you needed them, and otherwise not underfoot. They listened to what were hoped to get out of a wedding video and absolutely delivered! They worked well with my other vendors, especially my photographer. The video they made had me in tears, reliving our wedding day all over again. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could and I would absolutely recommend them to my closest friends. Thank you Neal and AWF!
We are not ones to write a review (and actually never have), but my wife and I got married a year ago and we still talk about how amazing our wedding video is! We also felt we couldn't miss the opportunity to share in our experience. The wedding video made by Artistic wedding captured the whole experience, that when we watch it, it is as though we are reliving the day! Other than the solo interviews, it was hard to tell the team were even there. Mike even met with us later to grab still frames from our movie! We would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a super professional group of people who work wonders with video!
This company was fantastic to work with from start to finish. So nice, helpful, incredible attention to detail, and the final product was breathtaking. Everything felt so personal and special little moments were captured for us to always remember. I cannot recommend them enough!
Artistic Wedding Films sets the standard for wedding cinematography. They deliver true art. Going with Mike and his team was one of the best decisions that my husband and I made for our wedding. There are moments on your wedding day that can easily be forgotten only days after the wedding. Mike and his team captures them in a way that lets you relive them and take them with you throughout your lives. Ordinary wedding films show you what happened that day, Artistic Wedding Films remind you of how you felt. It may sound cliche but my husband and I have a renewed love for one another every time we watch it. AWF will bring you back to the moment in a very special way.
