  • Since we were first in touch, Mike was extremely responsive and helpful, ensuring that we would have exactly the experience that was right for us. I am biased, but our wedding was perfect, and while I have vivid memories of it, Mike's work has gone above & beyond in helping to preserve the moments that have already faded (2 months later!) or that we missed altogether. We've only received the trailer so far (https://vimeo.com/298780455) but I know that the additional footage will be just as incredible. Not only did Mike & Daphne capture all the key moments of our wedding, Mike's editing focused on the highlights in the most perfect way - I've heard from multiple people that the video made them cry, and I attribute that entirely to Mike's work. Do not hesitate to hire him!

  • We hired Mike Zhu as our wedding cinematographer and he is amazing! He is very kind and professional, communication was easy and he is very responsive throughout the process. During our wedding, he really was like a ninja and not obtrusive at all. He sent us the teaser video in less than a week after our wedding day and the video was so beautiful that we’ve watched it so many times already! We wanted to choose our own song; he guided us in choosing and sent us playlists to choose from. We are very particular as to how we wanted our video to be like and he listened to all our wants in the video. Can’t wait for our other videos to come out and I’m sure they will all be simply amazing! We definitely recommend Mike and his top-notch skill!

  • From the start of the process, Mike really took the time to get to know us and catered to our every wish. He is extremely pleasant to work with and made us feel very comfortable on the big day. He got along well with our photographer (he could get along with anyone!) and was present but not too intrusive! There really are no words to describe Mike's talent and ability to capture such a big day in such a beautiful way. Mike kept us up-to-date on the progress of our trailer and our feature film. When we got our trailer, there were several edits we wanted made. Mike promptly made changes, without a hassle and gave us exactly what we wanted! He was extremely flexible and accommodating to make sure we got exactly what we wanted! We are so pleased with Mike’s ability to capture our wedding day perfectly in ~3 minutes!

  • I work in video production so I was curious what it would be like finding a videographer I felt confident in (I didn't want to use any co-workers/friends) Mike was an absolute joy to work with both before, during and after our wedding. He worked within our budget and met all of our wants and needs and was accommodating on all levels. His passion and professionalism did not go unnoticed and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Finding a videographer for your wedding in NYC is no easy task let alone an affordable option. After months of sorting through various companies that had multiple package options we stumbled upon Mike's Page via wedding wire and boy are we thankful we did. Mike's approach of story telling and documentary style drew us in at first glance and soon we would meet the one of our most responsive and coordinated vendors of our wedding. From our initial informational meet up to the many emails that we would correspond with -Mike was a true professional. Fast forward to the day off and Mike was spectacular for our needs - we are generally camera shy and did not want extensive time slots for photographers and videographers in our timeline especially as it was a morning wedding. Mike and his team work magic behind the scenes and communicated really well with our photographers to capture scenes seamlessly. He was always punctual with update emails and deadlines. We love love love our trailer and f... Read more

  • I would give Mike more than 5 stars if I could!!!!! Our wedding video was beyond perfect and more than we could have asked for. Mike is responsive and very attentive to his clients’ needs. We told him at the outset we would want funnier moments included in our video and he truly delivered. We just viewed our video and were all blown away!!! The quality of our video is also fantastic and surpasses others I saw while shopping around for a videographer. All I can say is I recommend Mike without any hesistation, and he will bring artistry and heart to your wedding video!!!

  • I highly recommend Mike as your wedding videographer. Through the planning process Mike was so easy to get in touch with and took his time speaking with us. He really got to know us and what was important to us. On our Wedding day Mike and Daphne were very professional and fun to work with! They captured everything we could imagine, plus more! Mike produced a unique and beautiful video through the angles he chose, the music he paired, and an awesome drone for overhead shots! My husband and I love watching our video and get to relive our day every day because of Mike and his team. Thank you!!!

  • All of Mike's videos should be enough reason to book him, but if you need an honest review to help you decide, here it goes. I think it speaks volumes that once I was engaged, the first step I took in planning my wedding was reserving Mike as our videographer. Before I even finalized on my wedding date and venue, before I got a dress, a DJ, a photographer, and all the other wedding essentials, I felt compelled to hire and lock down Mike first...and he delivered beyond expectations. Mike is a man driven by his passions and this is apparent through his creations. Mike is such an easy-going character that it makes it so natural for you to be yourself and let him capture those moments. There is no reason to rehearse or act it out, as he masterfully constructs beautiful perfect moments and has an eye for capturing the perfect visuals. You are not just getting a typical video, you're paying for a work of art. Cinematography is a form of art and Mike is truly a skilled artist. My husband and ... Read more

  • We booked with Mike Zhu Films for our April 2017 wedding and could not be happier with that decision. I found him on Wedding Wire while looking for a videographer with a cinematic style and was instantly drawn to his work. From the day I contacted him, Mike was very responsive and answered all of my questions, while never being pushy. He is very personable and has years of experience shooting weddings. He was available to meet in person to discuss details and go over the schedule for the day-of; and he also was in contact with the maitre d', which was very helpful. Mike and his regular assistant, Lance, arrived earlier than scheduled at our venue with all of their gear and jumped straight into action. I appreciate that he looks to capture genuine moments and emotions and did not ask us to re-do anything. I had mentioned to Mike in our meeting at a local cafe that family is very important to us and I noticed that he made sure to be extra attentive with capturing those special moments be... Read more

  • Mike is an SOOOOO talented, affordable, super nice to work with, and worth every penny.My husband didn't really want to hire a videographer, but AFTER a month of convincing and actually meeting Mike, he agreed. Now he's so happy we hired Mike! .We've only seen the highlight video and i CRIED, it's amazing... we can't wait to see the full video. After spending the Weekend with Us in St.Maarten (Destination wedding) he`s like Family. I highly recommend Mike.

  • Just received our wedding trailer and I can’t stop crying! It was absolutely beautiful, Mike is incredibly talented, our video is truly a work of art. I posted the trailer on my social media accounts, and I'm getting tons of messages and calls from friends, family and even strangers raving about how beautiful and touching it was. And many have stated that they didn’t even notice I had videographer, Mike and his assistant moved seamlessly throughout the day. My husband and I are so grateful for Mike, we get to relive our wedding day for the rest of our lives. https://vimeo.com/182413181/description

  • There is no question that Mike will go above and beyond to capture the essence of your wedding. He definitely listened to what we wanted and used his talents to tell our love story. Mike and Lance (his partner) were very professional and they were also great company while we got ready. My husband and I are very pleased with the quality of Mike's work and now we can re-live our wedding day whenever we want. Thank you Mike!

  • He was great to work with. Amazing quality and very precise. From the moment we contacted him, getting us pricing, contracts and receipts, obtaining information about the day and venue, to filming our big day and getting us all of the final product, everything was smooth and professional. He and his partner made us feel comfortable and they were easy to work with. Watching the trailer, and all of the footage reminded me of what i was feeling the day of my wedding and i feel it was because of how they captured and put together our video.

  • I am long due for my review! We received our trailer and was so touched by the wonderful job that Mike & and his team created. I always say that anyone can make a video, but it takes a talented cinematographer to put together a story. Our video gave us the exact same feeling as if we were re-living that day, all over again. The emotions that were captured on video still takes our breath away, even after watching it 389 times (but who's counting)! :)My husband found Zhuproductions here on wedding wire.I always dreamed of a music video style wedding video (think 98 degrees' I DO MV) and so we kept arguing over which one we should do. Anyway, we had the first meeting with Mike over coffee and it was a pretty good first meeting. It was like we were good friends chatting and we instantly felt very comfortable with Mike. The vendor and client connection is very important, It will make or break your decision. We've had our share of awkward/pushy vendor meetings, so we knew almost immediately ... Read more
