  • Mike and his team are an absolute pleasure to work with! This was the best decision we made for the wedding! He is professional, responsive, not intrusive on the dance floor, and truly captured all the best moments. We were SO happy and I've been recommending him non stop!

  • 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

  • Though we were initially on the fence about getting a videographer for our wedding, our first meeting with Mike had us convinced. He was a professional to the uttermost as he transparently shared about about his equipment, general time, and the editing process. Moreover, he took the time to listen and get to know us as a couple so that by the time we reached our wedding, he had become much more of a friend than just a vendor. He checked in with us several times before the wedding day to confirm timelines, schedules, and locations, making it abundantly clear that we could count on him for all details of this work. On the day of the wedding, Mike and his assistant arrived early to check in with both of us and started rolling. They didn't stop until several hours later, when the dance floor had been cleared, capturing every big and small moment without ever intruding. We just got our highlight reel a few days ago and we were ENTHRALLED. Mike is a brilliant video editor, whittling down ho... Read more

  • Mike was amazing! Just received our video trailer and it brought tears to my eyes! The quality of the film is amazing! Can't wait to see the full documentary edit of the entire event. Mike was a pleasure to work with the entire time, easily accessible via email. Worked with me to created a package that worked for me and my husband and catered to everything we wanted. He did an amazing job capturing all the events of the evening, I didn't even realize he was there recording some of the moments! And i'm glad he did! I would definitely recommend!

  • Mike and his assistant were phenomenal. We just received our highlight video and are so amazed at how he picked and mixed some of our favorite moments with creativity and heart. Mike's presence is unobtrusive, but his work speaks volume. He worked well with our photographer and the other vendors. He was also flexible, responsible, and finally provided fantastic value for the cost. We still haven't seen our full video, and will update this review when we have it, but would recommend Mike without reservation.

  • Amazing work! Mike and his assistant did a great job at our wedding. I wanted a cut of our first dance within the week after our wedding (we did a surprise Bollywood number with our wedding party and I wanted to show it to my extended family). Mike edited and sent us the video within the week. We got our highlights video a little later and it was excellent. He managed to capture the essence of the day and in a span of 3 mins could show what it was like. We can't wait for the full video!

  • Mike & his team were remarkable. We had the pleasure of using them on our wedding day and it barely seemed like they were there. But, in the background I can continuously see a camera taking all the cherish-able memories we were looking for during the ceremony and party thereafter. Highly recommend Zhu productions for any event that your looking to create a Cinematography style video versus just a standard video... their creativity and ability to use the environment and space of your event will leave you in shock as it did us. A++ to work with!!! Thank you, Derek @XSplosiveNY

  • Mike of Zhu Productions is an extremely talented and creative cinematographer. Our highlight wedding video still brings tears to our eyes. My husband didn't really want to hire a videographer, but now he's so happy we hired Mike! Mike is professional, affordable, super nice to work with, and worth every penny. When the video came out, so many of our guests said they didn't even realize we had a videographer, yet Mike and his assistant Daphne captured every single special moment! We have only seen our 4 minute highlight video, and would be happy enough with that, it's amazing... we can't wait to see the full video. I highly recommend Mike, if you want a video to capture your special day, don't go anywhere else!!

  • Mike Zhu was amazing during all stages of my engagement and marriage. I sought his service for my surprise proposal, for a "love story" video (it's an awesome side package to include) to play during the reception, and for the wedding day. For all three times we met, Mike performed as any great videographer/cinematographer should—with professionalism, courtesy, just the right amount of attentiveness, and care. The last is what really stood out for my wife and me. Because Mike showed much attention to detail and expressed his care for our special moments and our big day, we absolutely felt comforted and certain that he would deliver on the various things we discussed (i.e., what angles we wanted, how we wanted the video to turn out, where we wanted to shoot). During the "love story" video shooting, he coached us to look natural and comfortable. He gave us ideas to discuss in front of the camera when we needed more ideas. He took videos from multiple angles, but the retakes were not... Read more

  • FREAKING AMAZING! This man's 'movie-making' ability is amazing. He captured every moment and put everything together so well. We'll use him again for any milestones in life. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Wonderful guy, too!

  • If you want a cookie cutter type, non-creative, low quality wedding video then do not under any circumstances use Mike Zhu. If, however, you would like a custom, extremely creative, high quality, beautiful and artistic film of your wedding day which captures the essence of all of the emotions of the day - then, by all means look no further and hire Zhu Productions. Mike is a truly fantastic human being and one of the most talented videographers and editors working in this industry. He truly cares and goes above and beyond to make certain he understands the couple and what they are looking for in their wedding video. He is prompt, attentive, responsive, creative, innovative, kind and very genuine. During your wedding, you will forget that Mike is even there. He has a way of disappearing into the crowd, but when you see his work, you see that he was there capturing every moment - all with great care. We couldn't be more pleased with our video and the response from others has been... Read more

  • I know everyone thinks their video is the best.... But I REALLY do think my video is the best! I must have watched it 100 times the first month. Mike did such a great job capturing the most emotional and funny moments. He is professional and so nice! I would highly recommend him!
