  • Mike Zhu is THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER. Professional, kind, and responsive throughout the entire process, from the moment we contacted him, to my many questions throughout the year, to receiving our videos. I loved every minute of working with him. And the finished product... there are no words to express how talented he is! He works so stealthily. I really didn't even know he was there and he wasn't in my face at all. He moved around our tented, 200-person wedding with ease and didn't miss a moment. He returned our short trailer in under two weeks which was so incredible (I watch it almost daily to relive all the moments) and our long video in 2.5 or so months, which is also unheard of for most videographers. And the videos were just perfect. Every single minute of them had us laughing and crying and holding onto the memories. Our wedding planner loved him, my parents couldn't speak more highly of someone than him, and my husband and I adore him and his work. He might ... Read more

  • Similarly to the other reviews for Mike, I can't say enough positive things. He was so easy to work with in advance of our wedding, with quick and clear responses and none of the back and forth haggling that comes with a lot of vendors. On the wedding day, I was worried about bright flash or obtrusive lighting, but I truly forgot he was even there- and when I saw the footage I couldn't believe what he captured. He and his partner were so pleasant and easy to work with on the day of...and the videos they produced for us are AMAZING. Our trailer was delivered so quickly, and done so well. It's been 4 months and we still receive compliments on it. Our full length film captured our day absolutely perfectly and allowed us to relive every detail of our wedding day. Mike even went back and added some extra footage that we asked for within a week! He was truly the best vendor out of our entire wedding/planning experience.

  • Mike and his team were so wonderful to work with. We were blown away with what he was able to capture but you barely noticed them during the day. The style of his videography was exactly what we loved; a natural, candid style that really emphasized our personalities when you watched the video.

  • Mike did an exceptional job as our videographer! Our wedding video was perfectly put together and well edited with our favorite songs. He and his team did a great job of capturing all of the most important moments of our wedding and produced a very professional and high quality video and trailer. And on top of that, we couldn't have had a better experience working with Mike before, during, and after the wedding. Mike was incredibly responsive, professional, punctual, and polite. Whenever we had any questions or issues, he would get back to us quickly. During the wedding, in a venue with a lot of restrictive rules, Mike and his team were able to adapt and were a pleasure to deal with, being positive and understanding even as we had time and space constraints. They were always on top of things, knowing which shots and scenes they wanted, and we always felt like we were in good, experienced hands. Any suggestions or preferences were always taken into account without question and my wi... Read more

  • Mike did such an amazing job as our videographer and we cannot recommend him enough! We initially didn't think to get a videographer for our wedding but after some thought, we decided to hire one and we're so glad we did. Mike's video allowed us to re-live our big day and be in that moment again, something that photos just can't fully capture. I wanted our videographer to just capture the day as it naturally unfolded and Mike did just that. Everything in our video was so natural and candid and he captured our day perfectly. Not only that, Mike is highly professional and worked so well together with our photographer (which was so important!) so they never got in each others way and were both able to do their jobs perfectly. When we got the trailer back from him (less than two weeks after the wedding!) it was absolutely perfect - the style of the video was exactly what I wanted and the cinematography was so well done. He is clearly a very talented videographer and you won't regret hiring... Read more

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.
