Above and beyond...definitely worth the investment!Reviewed on 9/30/2013 Julie F
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!
Thank you BlueSkiesReviewed on 10/01/2013 Jessica D
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!
Two Sisters, Two Weddings - The Best Investment!Reviewed on 9/25/2013
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.
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!Reviewed on 11/12/2014 Jamie G
I met with Julie early on in the process. it was a wake up call. This lady knows what she is doing. I was at ease with her. As a bride with little input other than picking my groom :) she was able to give me direction. Her and her team worked so well together with our other vendors, in particular our photographer. The results were phenomenal. ALl of the things you expect, they nailed and they went above and beyond so many times. she even carries bobby pins for emergency's amongst other things. the quality of our video is spectacular. they had cameras everywhere and nothing was missed. I would imagine all videographers on the knot are good. If you want someone who will put you at ease and you know will give you the best possible video, this is the team. They have won emmys for goodness sake. My entire family was raving about Julie. They caught moments that i will cherish forever. absolutely wonderful, thank you so much
Priceless KeepsakeReviewed on 10/06/2014
We selected Blue Skies HD Video & Film Productions, LLC for our Wedding Day and we could not be happier with their service. They are professional, courteous, organized and FUN! It was a pleasure working with Julie and Chris throughout the entire process. Their experience, knowledge and creativity made our decision very easy. Our wedding video is a priceless keepsake and one that we will cherish for years to come. We highly recommend Blue Skies for your special event.
Look no further, higher this videographer!Reviewed on 10/03/2014 Jennifer K
Chris and Julie where are videographers almost one year ago. I think I got caught up in the post wedding activities and totally forgot to write a review initially! As we are approaching our one year anniversary, we have watched our video with family and friends numerous times. It is the perfect portrayal of the perfect day!! Julie was a life saver when it came to organizing the day and making sure all important moments were captured. It was a relief to have her keep track of the timeline (and to even help us plan the timeline). Their work is amazing and I can't imagine a better representation of the day!!! You can stop searching for videographers now… Just hire this awesome husband and wife duo and you will be set!
Great service!Reviewed on 10/02/2014 Emily E
Julie and Chris and their team provided great service from day one, and were helpful with coordinating day-of details to maximize the photo and video quality while ensuring our wedding vision came to life. They worked well with our wedding coordinator and her team, as well as the photographer, and my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing that day. They were unobtrusive to the events while obtaining great footage for our video. We love reliving our wedding day through the high quality DVD and Blu-ray. We will cherish these memories for a lifetime. Thank you!
We LOVE our wedding video from Blue Skies!Reviewed on 8/25/2014 Emily K
To be honest, we were on the fence about doing a video for our wedding, but after seeing the video that Blue Skies did for us, it would have been the biggest mistake not to use them! We are simply in awe of our wedding video. It truly made us fall in love with our wedding day all over again. We also loved working with Julie and Chris! We really feel like we got simply the best service from them and the best quality video that we have already watched over and over again. I really cannot say it enough: we LOVE LOVE LOVE our video from Blue Skies! I really feel like it was one of the best decisions we made to use them for our big day! Thank you SO much, Julie and Chris, and everyone at Blue Skies!!!
Blue Skies for the WinReviewed on 8/18/2014 Jennifer P
Julie and Chris at Blue Skies HD Video & Film Productions are truly the best in the business. Professional, friendly, and all around fantastic to work with, they are real artists, and captured our Wedding in a way to preserve the beauty of our Special Day. I admit that I was skeptical at first about spending the money on a Videographer, but the end result of our video is a treasure that will remain in our Family forever. My wife and I cannot thank Blue Skies HD Video and Film Productions enough for the fantastic job they have done! My wife and I cannot recommend Blue Skies enough!
Thank you Blue Skies!!!Reviewed on 7/20/2014 Claire G
I had the pleasure of working with HD Blue Skies (Julie and Chris) as my wedding videography team and they are truly best in class! Not only were they a joy to work with but the quality of their work is outstanding!! From the very beginning, I could tell that Blue Skies would be among my favorite wedding vendors. During my first appointment Julie absolutely WOWed me with her professionalism and she even went above and beyond by encouraging me to consider things like: my timeline, recommendations for other vendors, etc. You can tell she really enjoys her trade and is remarkably knowledgeable about the industry. The days leading up to the wedding she continued to help me make sure nothing fell through the cracks. She even assisted me with considering the overall sound quality for the ceremony. She advised we have mics/lavaliers so my audience could hear us and my officiant during ceremony. I am so glad she pointed this out or I would have missed it entirely. The morning of the big day she and Chris arrived at my home and took care of everything. I hardly noticed they were there but the images they captured were breath taking! Julie stayed with us while Chris went to our ceremony site and continued to film the details of our wedding and reception. They have a remarkable sense of creativity and they made the ordinary images of my day/event seem extraordinary! The finished product is spectacular!! It’s a dream come true. Before my wedding I felt my still photos were the most important thing to me. Now that I have my wedding video, I have changed my mind. I can replay the most important day of my life and relive every detail like it was yesterday. I know I am bias because it was my wedding but I truly believe anyone that watched my wedding video would be entertained and enamored with the superb videography. I honestly can’t say enough great things about Chris/Julie/this company. If you haven’t already considered them (or videography) for your big day – it’s worth every penny - call them!! You won’t regret it!
BlueSkies is AMAZING!Reviewed on 7/17/2014 Emily E
Julie and Chris, owners and husband and wife, were absolutely amazing to work with. From our initial consultation, to any changes to our plans, both were friendly, responsive and completely understanding of the vision we had for our wedding. They captured "us" perfectly throughout the big day, and we're so excited to have such wonderful memories documented for the years to come. What an amazing company to work with. Thank you for making our wedding memories so special!
World-Class VideographerReviewed on 2/25/2014 Dina F
If I had to simply use one word to describe Blue Skies Video it would be WOW!! Their professionalism is unsurpassed. In an industry saturated with videographers it is clearly evident the “Emmy Winning Blue Skies Video” sets the bar for all others to achieve. We used Blue Skies for our wedding and reception, engagement video, as well as a bridal shower game. The finish product we received far exceeded our greatest expectations.
March 2013 WeddingReviewed on 11/04/2013 Rachel B
BlueSkies HD was a special part of our special day. Julie took the time to meet with us and make sure every detail was taken care of from helping with the day of timeline to providing helpful "wedding planning tips" we hadn't even thought of. The team's service the day of was not only professional, but extremely supportive. We couldn't have been more happy with the final product! There is nothing like having your special day capture not only in photos, but video! We now have a memento of that amazing day we can watch at anytime throughout the years and remember the faces and memories in that single moment of time.
A BlessingReviewed on 10/30/2013 Whitney M
I know using the word "blessing" may seem a bit overrated but every time I watch the video I am touched. The wedding day can be absolutely hectic and it is over in a blink of eye, so capturing one of the most important days in your life is a must. It was very important to me that the videographers and photographers respect my wedding and guests and not insert themselves to the point of being annoying. Blue Skies went beyond my expectations in their professionalism and the quality of their product. They not only capture images but also the true emotions felt that day, This video will be one of my most treasured possessions which will always bring great joy when watched.
Blue Skies HD Video - ReviewReviewed on 10/09/2013 Erika P
Blue Skies did the videography for our weddding - it was fantastic!! They are easy to work with and very personable! Also, due to their years of service in the industry, I feel like they provided the best overall service and value for a wedding video. The final product blew us away - great quality, told our story of the special day with a nice mix of speeches and music selections.......definitely something for us to have and look back on for a lifetime. I would definitely recommend them for your wedding - you will not be disappointed at all.
A Must Have Memory!Reviewed on 10/05/2013 Mary O
Julie and Chris have given us the most memorable gift! To be able to re-live that most amazing day as if we were there again is priceless. The professional quality of the wedding video is outstanding. They absolutely captured the emotion of the day as well as the beautiful snow falling outside the church window right before my daughter walked down the aisle. It was a beautiful winter wedding and Julie and Chris captured all of the tiny yet beautiful details. It is evident that they love what they do! They have a great ability to combine the upmost professionalism with a great sense of fun. My two nieces used Blue Skies as well and I wanted my daughter to have the same wonderful memory of her wedding. As a parent, I feel that this video and the photography were the best use of the wedding dollars. It is the one thing that lasts. Without a doubt, we will use Blue Skies again in the future. Thank you Julie and Chris!!!
Great Experience and Great PeopleReviewed on 10/03/2013 Raquelle W
This is a fantastic company to work with. They cover everything start to finish and make sure you get what you want. Julie helped us with not only planning our video out, but helped us through our entire wedding process. The day of they were great and made sure we were completely comfortable and got every detail. The video is amazing. They have such talent editing and putting together a whole story of the day. You are so busy, they catch every detail for you to relive again and again.
Great video and great peopleReviewed on 10/03/2013 Morita A
Love, love, love Chris and Julie! I met them two months before my wedding at a bridal show (I went looking for my floral ideas) and Chris started to talk to us. I was crying standing there watching the videos play. We met with Julie about a week later and she's so informative and just knows a lot about weddings that I left my deposit that day. I forgot they were at my wedding (the day goes by so fast) but also because they just did their job and didn't have a million questions (see my DJ review - he was annoying). We got our video back a few weeks later and it blew my mind! I had no idea they got all the images they got, and it's all edited so pretty. Our video is so us and we love it! Excellent vendor!
Great Video to Enjoy for YearsReviewed on 10/02/2013 Scott S
Julie and her husband are great at what they do. Their films capture all the big moments of a wedding from pre-picture jitters to reception dancing. After a year, we're still showing the DVD to friends and family and will continue to do so for years.
Amazing! Great Investment!Reviewed on 9/30/2013 Lexi K
Chris and Julie are absolutely amazing at what they do! They are completely worth the investment, and I wouldn't pick another videographer in Columbus! Great Experience and Investment!!
The best out thereReviewed on 6/18/2013 Olivia H
I used Blue Skies for my videographer, and boy am I glad I did. The first time I met with Julie she was so sweet and made me feel right at home. She explained about videographers and different qualities, without making me feel pressured. Also, after watching some of her sample dvds, I knew I wanted to use Blue Skies. They are simply amazing. They really are better than all the other companies I looked into. You cannot beat the quality. They are a little more expensive, but it is worth it. They do a fantastic job. Plus, on the day of the wedding they were lifesavers. They helped handle mini crisis' and even helped me fix my hair when we got to the reception. They really went above and beyond their job duties to make sure my day was everything I wanted. I cannot wait to see the finished product!
Awesome Wedding VideoReviewed on 12/26/2012 sarah n
Blue Skies HD Video was by far the best wedding gift to my husband and myself. The video was more than just a replay of our wedding. It was edited to replay as if it were a movie with our favorite music and clips. Our friends and family were impressed with the level of expertise and detail. It is a video everyone enjoyed watching, even my husband's friends. This was the best money spent and it will be more precious to us than our photographs. It captured the most important moments that we will enjoy every year on our anniversary. I couldn't have been happier and I would recommend Blue Skies to any bride who wants a quality video to cherish and share with family and friends. Brides may be weary of cost, but this is the wedding expense I was willing to splurge on and I'm glad a did. I would recommend brides to do the same. I also cannot say enough about Julie. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire wedding planning. She was professional, organized and provided direction during the wedding day. It made me at ease and comfortable. She was by far one of the best vendors I worked with. We love Blue Skies!
ExceptionalReviewed on 11/20/2012 Rachel C
I highly recommend Blue Skies for wedding videography. We recently received the video of our wedding and were floored by how beautiful it was. Chris & Julie did such an amazing job capturing the events and feelings of the day...from my husband's expressions before the ceremony to the speeches and reactions to setting the intro and finales to our musical selections so perfectly. In addition, Julie was very helpful before the wedding, far beyond issues related to videography. She helped me plan the details of the wedding day - down to 5 minute increments - and made valuable suggestions about things I had no clue about, like fake getaways, entrances the reception, coordinating family photos, etc. We are already so thrilled with the video and its ability to let us relive an extraordinarily busy and intense day! We know we will treasure having these memories on film for the rest of our lives.
As good as it gets! A personal and professional exReviewed on 9/20/2012 Gwendolyn K
Blue Skies is second to none in terms of quality, skill, professionalism and personality. Our video exceed high expectations and has made every other "wedding video" we have viewed appear "amateurish." They gave us great insight and advice, all the while allowing us to give input into the style and feel of how we wanted our wedding day to be presented on video....and they delivered!!!!! They captured the best and most beautiful moments of the day and enhanced our already wonderful memories. We are so proud to have had them with us on on such an important and special occasion!
Professional and Loved our VideoReviewed on 8/27/2012 Angie M
We selected Blue Skies after visiting several video companies and were 100% satisfied with our choice. They were easy and professional to work with throughout the process and so helpful on the actual wedding day. We loved our photographer and pictures but when we got our video my whole family was in tears again! It was if we were transported back to the wedding day! The quality of the editing is professional and we loved the video montage. This is something we watch weekly and I still tear up! Definitely recommended!
