Every bride needs Blu Couture!

Reviewed on 4/15/2012 Amber A

Blu Couture is simply the best. They are great to work with; before, during and after the wedding. Their work is exceptional-definitely worth the money. The wedding video they made is a great way for me and my husband to continue enjoying the day that we spent so much time... Read More planning for! The wedding goes by so fast, that having a video of the day, with Blu Couture's artistic edge, is priceless so that memories are not forgotten! I was really sad when the wedding day was over, but having the video to look forward to helped:) I wouln't have chosen anyone else! They are amazingly talented!

Cherishing the Memory Through Film

Reviewed on 6/30/2011 Jaclyn B

Marty and Mandie at Blu Couture Wedding Films are both incredibly skilled artists and first tier professionals. While preparing for our wedding day, they truly got to know us -- both as individuals and as a couple. They took a special interest in hearing our story and bringing... Read More it to life through film. They also got to know our families and loved ones. The work they produced was creative and beautiful but always maintained the honesty and integrity of the day. They were accommodating and flexible and always willing to go the extra mile to catch some really special moments. We cherish the films they created for us and have enjoyed sharing them with family and friends. Their capturing the day on film -- hearing the voices and seeing the expressions -- added value to our memory of the experience in a way much different than any other vendor. We would recommend them to any couple getting married.

Could not be happier!

Mandie and Marty sure know what they're doing. They kind of had me at hello. No, really. I saw some of their work online and was excited that they would be putting together our wedding film. They did something for our event... they seemed to just capture what's really going... Read More on and even the smaller things that you might not have noticed (especially because the day goes by so fast)! I remember being so exhausted after all the decision making I had to do and even after the wedding when I needed to get a music selection to them, I just didn't have it in me to make even one more decision so I, even being a MUSICIAN, totally left it in their hands because I trust their taste that much. When they chose the perfect song that I hadn't even heard of before, you might assume that I was surprised but I wasn't. They had been hitting home runs since the first phone conversation. They are both so warm, very professional, super creative, hard working and seem to even enjoy going above and beyond; like Marty... he got up at 5 am to capture a sunrise of my city so he'd have a nice opening sequence in our film... and it's really beautiful. That was an extra. We hadn't discussed that as being part of the deal. I just can't imagine how we could be any happier with their work. Our friends and family who've seen the trailer to our wedding were just floored. We've gotten so many compliments on it, I've lost track. Being that the wedding film is really what will most effectively capture a wedding day and the movement within it, mess up whatever else you will... but don't mess up the wedding film! You've got my recommendation. Hands down, hire Blu Couture!!

AMAZING, WONDERFUL, & FANTASTIC! My now husband and I can't even put into words how awesome Blu Couture was in helping capture the memories of our special day! Even all the way down to just how they are as human beings. The day started off pretty crappy to begin with and Marty,... Read More one of the videographers, talked me into a better place and calmed me so that I could still appreciate the things that were going right and the fact that I was about to marry my best friend. The little things like that are what set companies a part, but believe me when I say their product is also FABULOUS!! My highlight gets so many compliments, one being that it looks like a commercial for The Bachelor. I couldn't have asked for better people to work with!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH MARTY AND MANDIE!!

Mandie and Marty did a fantastic job with our wedding film!! When planning our wedding my wife and I looked at the budget (which everyone does a 100 times) trying to decide if we could afford a flim or would it be worth getting a wedding film. 18 months later we can say that... Read More it was 100% worth it and we could not have asked for a better team the work with. Blu Couture had us fill out a very detailed questionnaire which helped them create a breathetaking video. We have watched it over and over again. It truely was the highlight of our wedding!! They did so many extra special things for us (but the truth is they do that for everyone) which made our wedding video so so so incredible!!

We had a very long wedding day with two ceremonies and a long reception. The team at Blu Couture not only captured it all, they provided us with footage of both ceremonies in addition to the speeches and a special "lip sync battle." We really appreciate having all these... Read More memories! Also, we wanted a few adjustments to our highlight video and they graciously took constructive feedback and accommodated us. Thanks again for being a part of our special day.

Don't live up to their contract. Repeatedly asked if they could cover entire day BEFORE I signed contract, of course they could.

Has been easy to work with throughout, feel like they do a lot of prep-work before the wedding to ensure they understand who you and your partner are. Day of was smooth, was there on time, not intrusive. I am excited for the video.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND BLU COUTURE. It took a year to obtain my wedding videos. ONE YEAR. One year, countless moments of frustration, and ignored emails. Email after email, Marty continued to show an inability to make our wedding day video correctly. He even had the audacity to... Read More REPEAT SCENES, as if I wouldn't notice. Hours and hours of video yet he found the need to repeat scenes. Ridiculous. Dealing with Blu Couture is enough to fill a newlywed with regret. And who wants to feel regret about one of the greatest milestones of her life? I hope future couples avoid Blu Couture and find a worthwhile company to share their special day with.

So Amazing!!

Choosing Mandie & Marty from BluCouture to do our wedding film was hands down one of the best wedding decision we made. When we first met them, we were struck by their energetic and fun personalities. Their passion for videography instantly apparent, and at the same time they... Read More were so relatable and easy to get along with. Since then, interacting with them at every step of the journey has continued to be a great pleasure. They are some of the kindest and most fun friends we made throughout the process and we were just a joy to be around on our wedding day. On top of that, they are exceptionally talented and amazing at what they do!! While their body of work speaks for itself, I honestly don’t have words for how incredible & beautiful our wedding video came out. It has definitely exceeded our expectations & we were mind-blowingly impressed with the final product. Not only did they capture the moments most special to us, but the way they integrated everything so elegantly and professionally (including gorgeous aerial footage of our city!) was creative genius. We were really touched by the hard work they put into creating this perfect one of a kind memento for us and it is priceless to have such a beautiful way to relive our special day and be able to share it with our family and friends (who all cannot stop gushing about it!). Having this keepsake really means the world to us and we would without a doubt recommend these guys to anyone looking for an exceptional videographer!!

I made my wife happy

Reviewed on 6/02/2014

Being from the Film Industry choosing the right filmmaker for my wedding was one of my top priorities. After several months of watching wedding films online and separating the good from the bad and the ugly I narrowed it down to a few companies in the states (we had a... Read More destination wedding and finding good vendors in Mexico is nearly impossible - save yourself the strain if you are in the same boat and pay the money to fly out quality vendors if it's in your budget). Ultimately we went with blu couture for the quality and flexibility (price was comparable to the other companies). I elected to have them stay for 4 days at our event since we had so much activities that I wanted documented during the wedding week. Talent: these guys know what they are doing as wedding filmmakers. My initial thought started when I saw the choice in gear. Being in the industry I go by the rule that Professionals use professional gear if they want professional results. This is something I have the luxury of knowing that other couples might not since a lot of the stuff looks the same. Then I observed how they used their toys. You can buy all the fancy gear but unless you have the skill to use it all you did was just buy expensive gear. That's when I silently game myself a pat on the back because I knew that they know exactly what they are doing and I completely had full trust knowing that I am in good hands. I know that I am overly picky but I guess that goes with the nature of what I do in my own business. Personality: Mandie, Marty, and Mike came down for the wedding - I called them the 3M film company. I can not say an ill thing about anyone of them as they were total pros when working and good people when they were off the clock. I had the chance to chat after the wedding and have a couple of drinks and they are super cool fun folks! FINAL PRODUCT: my wife and I were blown away at the artistic beauty and cinematic storyline of our film. No regrets and 110% thrilled with results.

Extremely Talented Videographers

Reviewed on 4/13/2014 cathy h

I viewed so many films/videos and did a lot of research. I wanted an eye catcher and also "what is it that is catching my interest and makes me want to watch the film over and over....and never get bored?", "what is grabbing my attention and why do I feel it is so good?" Its... Read More because Mandie and Marty's films really plays with the viewers emotions. Their plots are fantastic a long with the perfect music for each segment. That was why I LOVED their featured film (NYC) so much. It was serious and made me emotional...then it took me to a lighter place with a lighter song, with people laughing, with moments with family and loved ones, groom playing basketball...etc...then it takes the viewer back to the serious (emotional) part. When a movie is too serious for too long, it gets played out, so the way Blu Couture changed the setting (feelings and mood) really made it good. I even notice with regular movies if it touches all my emotions from being humorous and emotional/deep and how it is put together...then thats a great movie! Back to the featured film...the parts where the Dad's spoke, to how Blu Couture captured the facial expressions from the bride and back to showing the father. They also captured the meaningful button picture of the Grandmother on her bouquet. The theme song really made me more curious of what this movie is leading up to. I loved how they had the view of the whole city, the train..then they narrowed it down the place. Its like showing the viewer from a broad to more of the detailed story of someone's life. Usually when I watch a movie once, I am done. But with Blu Couture's films including mine, I have been watching it over and over and I feel as if its my first. Working with Mandie and Marty was an honor. They were so sweet and nice! Extremely talented and creative...that is obvious in their work. I can tell they are passionate and love their work as it shows in their films. They were on time, kept in touch with me the entire time although they were busy traveling. We had 2 films made with them and the first one, they promised that we will have our SDE (Same Day Edit) by Christmas. They were home with their family and had slow connection, but they went out of their way to get to a place that had better connection just so we would have it as promised, by Christmas. All our families, friends and guest were SOO amazed by their films that they made for us. They have never seen such creativity and emotional films. They sent us the hard copy as promised. They even included snacks and goodies a long with the external disk and usb drive with our raw footage and videos. It was the most thoughtful thing. I dont give ratings, but I had to take time to give them what they deserve. If I can give them 10 stars, I would. I am not the type to boast about anyone unless they really deserve it. I am very picky. I would definitely recommend Blu Couture for their work. They are so pleasant to work with. Thanks, Marty and Mandie for being a part of our wedding day. You guys made our dreams come true. Many hugs.

Read More after months of planning I missed so much yet, I know Mandie and team captured it all on film for me to enjoy for years to come. My fiancé and I planned a wedding back in the Chicago area from our new home in San Diego. We chose Blu Couture from their online videos, reviews and a phone conversation. We just loved the ‘Feature Films’ and ‘Love Stories’ and were hoping we made a good decision. Well we were totally right! Their work is just beautiful and they totally capture the love in the air. On the day of our wedding, we opted for the full package, including a feature film. While there were multi cameras, Mandie, Charlie and Andrew were actually in the background their work complemented my photographer (who is a close friend). It all seemed so natural and relaxed. I am thrilled with my decisions not only to chose Blu Couture as my vendor but that we opted for the additional ‘Feature Film’. So amazing – just look at their work. XOXO Rita and Randy May 2011
