One word: WOW! My family and I hired Glitch Films as a surprise gift for my best friend’s wedding (where I was MOH). A videographer was one of the only things they had decided just didn’t fit into the wedding budget. Upon hearing this, I thought what an special gift it would... Read More be to be able to somehow provide the bride & groom a film as a non-traditional wedding gift. Enter in Aly and Krishna to the rescue!!! Upon contacting them via e-mail, within a few days they were able to put together a custom package for us and made this dream a reality. It is hard to put into words just how wonderful both Aly and Krishna truly are. In addition to being awesome people, they are also extremely talented. The passion for their craft shines brightly through their amazing work. Having viewed the final product, we are all overwhelmed with joy/appreciation in having this most special day captured forever. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you times a million! You guys are true rock stars!

AMAZING. Seriously, book Glitch, you won't regret it. Both my husband & I think this was hands down the best purchase we made with our wedding. Christian and Aly are a blast to hang out with and extremely easy going. We had so much with two of them that it honestly felt like we... Read More were hanging out with friends before the wedding. And once the wedding hit, along with the reception, I barely even saw them...As crazy as that sounds. Looking back I'm like "how the heck did they get all this footage?". They blended in perfectly and not once did I really notice a camera. The film was amazing and it's just so nice to have a video you can show your kids or nieces and nephews one day. Like "there's grandma shakin' it" or "see we used to be cool when we were young" or "there's your aunt when she was ten" lol. It's just vey real, raw emotions and you can't capture all of that in just photography. The hubs and I will randomly watch the film every now and then which makes the highlight video perfect. We've been married 10 months and have easily watch it 10x. It's just so fun! There's not another moment in life to where you will have ALL of those people together in one spot celebrating your love. Why wouldn't you want to capture that?? It was the best day ever & I'm so glad we had Glitch capture that moment. Worth every penny & then some!

Working with Glitch was truly amazing! They absolutely captured the entire day but somehow we were only aware of them when they wanted us to be. We had so many people tell us of their tears of joy upon watching our short film. And I must say that my wife and I experienced much...

I would highly recommend their services for anyone wanting to capture the moment with an incredible visual archive that will not only document the day but provide a lasting memory of the entire experience. Thank you for everything you did for us!

Aly and Christian of Glitch films were an absolute dream to work with for our wedding! Like many couples experience, the wedding day FLIES by after months of planning out so many details and hoping and praying all goes smoothly. From the first meeting we had with Aly and... Read More Christian, we were struck by how incredibly intentional and thoughtful they were about making sure they knew all the details we wanted captured. What is so valuable about them as a team is that they listen so intently as to what is important to you as a couple, and then illustrate your day's story in a way that encapsulates all you value and cherish. The details, emotions, facial expressions, and highlights of each important moment were not only captured, but were told in such a beautifully artistic way that I get teary-eyed every time I watch it. Their work is not only of incredible quality, but they are one of the kindest couples you'll meet. In my opinion, having Glitch video our wedding was the best vendor decision we made. I hope you do the same :-)

Superb teamwork! Aly and Christian are professional, relaxed and detail-oriented. As a professional photographer myself, I placed a LOT of weight on the quality and reliability of the "documenters" that would cover my wedding. Having seen Aly and Christian shoot a friend's... Read More wedding, I was highly impressed by their fluid performance—not only do they understand eachother's thought and work process (perks of being married?), they have a nifty ear bud/mic system that allows them to cue one another during the ceremony. My one experience witnessing them work together was impressive enough that my husband and I hired them to come all the way to Michigan for our wedding! So their technical skill is certainly there. BUT: I know many videographers who have experienced technical skill. What I first noticed in our friend's highlight video—and what I now treasure MOST in ours!—is Aly and Christian's ability to notice, discern, and then tenderly articulate the LOVE STORY of their clients' day. I was taken aback at the pace, editing and overall narrative they created! It felt like I became the world's most important celebrity with gold standard paparazzi... And I'm just a lil' ol' college student from Michigan! One of my favorite scenes that I nearly forgot happened is of my husband fixing the strap of my dress during our first look. It is so small, so quiet, and so beautiful, and I am deeply impressed and appreciative that they chose something as "insignificant" as that. That is what they do—they understand. In short: Choose Aly and Christian.

If you're a bride or groom still searching for your wedding videographers, your search ends now. Aly & Christian (Glitch Films) are simply THE BEST at what they do, and hiring them to film our wedding & create the videos we'll forever cherish was a decision I would make again... Read More and again. Let's start with the quality of their work: I watched HOURS of highlight films from all sorts of wedding videography vendors' websites before we made our decision, and what struck me about Glitch Films is that their films always look super professional and never cheesy-- they get beautiful shots and weave them together in a way that flows seamlessly and elegantly. Also, the audio component is a HUGE plus that many other vendors just don't even deal with (the results of which I find a bit strange-- and a bit sad because I want to look back and remember the speeches, the vows, and the laughter!). We love the way the audio is incorporated into our film; it's one of the things about which we've received the most comments from others-- that, and the fact that we look like movie stars, which is totally due to Aly & Christian's amazing lighting and mad skills! The audio mixing is done so professionally; I know that is no easy task, and this alone puts Glitch above many of their competitors. Also, Glitch offers a single package that includes not only a highlight film from your special day but also a "feature film" (about 30 minutes long) with more extensive footage. Offering a longer version makes a lot of sense to me since videographers already have all of that footage (and you probably want to see it!), but many other vendors do not offer that-- OR they charge an obscene amount of money to add that on to your package. We are so grateful to have the short film to share with everyone and the longer one to watch with family & close friends-- and on every anniversary! The Glitch website explains that they offer just one package because they care so much about the quality of their work and they're going to give every film their full effort anyway, so why offer "tiers" of products and pricing? I can definitely attest to the fact that they do indeed put in a TON of effort and time to making sure every film is just perfect. I really don't know how they managed to get in all of the shots that they did, especially since our wedding included multiple locations and was an all-day affair. They work SO hard and they are so good at what they do!!! Finally, I need to mention that Aly & Christian are not only fabulous at what they do but they're also great people. I felt surprisingly comfortable getting ready with them in the room, and they did such a great job of blending in throughout our day; several of our guests commented on their professionalism and friendliness. Before our wedding day, they really made an effort to get to know us so that they could tailor the film to us. In fact, they went above and beyond to accomplish that, incorporating a song that is near and dear to us into our highlight film, bringing in a translator to add subtitles so both of our families could understand our whole film (our ceremony was bilingual), and making a few last-minute adjustments to insure we were 100% happy with our videos, which we are! They clearly love what they do, which makes them even better at it, and they're also kind and helpful folks to hang out with on your wedding day! So, HIRE GLITCH FILMS for your wedding videography!! I guarantee you will be so glad you did.

I cannot say enough good things about Aly and Christian with Glitch Films!! Going into wedding planning, my (now) husband and I were worried about adding the cost of a videographer, but looking back, we could not be happier about the decision. Pictures are beautiful and very... Read More special, but there's something about the video!! It catches SO many details and facial expressions and moments that you can't even expect to remember. The best part is that it allows you to relive the memory every single day for the rest of your life, whenever you want to go back! That on its own is priceless. So, my number one recommendation is to go with the video. My next (and probably more important) recommendation is to hire Aly and Christian! All I can say is wow! They will blow you away and far exceed any expectations you have. They were the hardest working vendor we had on our wedding day. They showed up the day before to get a lay of the land and spent time getting to know us and learning about our preferences (in addition to the conversations we already had over email). On the wedding day they showed up before everyone else and were some of the last to leave! They truly went above and beyond for us and were unbelievably kind and so fun to work with along the way. They are amazing people and have a beautiful passion for their work. The best part is that it shows IN their work! Every single person who has watched our video has cried and laughed and said it is hands down the best wedding video they have ever seen. It's not even because it was my wedding. They just did such a perfect job - from capturing the best moments to their work with lighting and music and effects. And, everything was perfectly done and available to us a month after the wedding day! Not to mention packaged in such a special way. My brother-in-law has already booked them for his wedding in 2016. I can't thank them enough for their beautiful work and for allowing me to have the best memories from one of the best days of my life. - Pan

They were so easy to work with and very respectful of everyone especially the photographers. We received all our videos only a week after the wedding which was so fast. They came in a custom case which was wonderful and you receive multiples, so you can give one to your parents or your child when they grow up. I still receive compliments on our highlight video and it's been a little over a month. Someone even told me that they watched the video and felt like they were there.
