I originally hadn't planned on getting video of my wedding but was told by several friends I would regret not having one. My dad passed away 5 months after our wedding and I am beyond grateful to have those moments of him captured. The wedding video is definitely something my... Read More husband and I splurged on, but it was worth every penny and we are so happy we hired Craiu Production. Chip and his team were wonderful and extremely professional to work with the day of our wedding and the months leading up to and after it. The technology they use is top of the line. The drone shots are amazing and the camera stabilization equipment they use sets their videos apart from companies that do not. My husband and I were so impressed with Chip and his team the day of our wedding. They first arrived at my father-in-law's house for my husband getting ready, then to the hotel where I was getting ready, our first look location after that, and finally our ceremony and reception venue. We were blown away with the quality of our trailer video and the creativity that went into it. We are waiting until our 1st anniversary to watch the full-length video but know it will be nothing short of incredible! Craiu Production is the best of the best!

Getting ready and going all around Detroit, our entire ceremony, all 6 speeches, all 3 dances, and a ton of footage of our reception party!

I cannot write enough great words about Chip. It took me almost two months to find him being the picky person that I am.

His work is absolutely flawless with every single detail on display and he loves what he does! You will definitely not be disappointed and every single penny was worth going towards a videographer on your special day.

Thank you Chip and team for such an amazing experience and a wonderful video of our wedding day that we get to keep for a lifetime!

I don't even know where to start. The craiu productions team was phenomenal. They were amazing to work with, every step of the way from my first email all the way through the final result. My husband and I had a nerdy themed wedding, and while we didn't ask for it, craiu... Read More productions went out of there way to incorporate that into our highlight video and full video. It felt like we were watching a superhero movie of ourselves. The footage was amazing! They didn't miss a single thing, it was 100+ degrees out and they were right there, sweating away with us at every turn. They were professional, fun, kind and everything in between. I can't thank them enough for the perfect video from our wedding day, it is something I'll cherish forever and I would recommend them for anything over any of the larger MORE EXPENSIVE companies out there. I expect over the next few years, with their dedication and service they will be the largest company out there in the Michigan/Detroit area. Seriously, they're amazing. Thank you so much for everything!!!!

When I think of our experience of having Craiu Production capture our wedding day the first word that comes to mind is “excellence!” Truly, there is not much more one has to say. From day one with our initial contact until we obtained our most anticipated final copy, there is... Read More nothing I would change, and nothing more I could have asked for. We so greatly appreciated the quality and service that was provided that both my husband and I decided to share our thoughts in a review. Both Chip and Nick were incredibly professional, and went above and beyond on more than one occasion in order to meet my husband’s and my needs. What stands out most for me, though, is the warmth, patience, and understanding that they provided following an unexpected death in our family right before the wedding took place. They were a blessing to us, and so it is without any reservation that I wholeheartedly recommend this team for your special day or any other videography needs. Thank you!
