100/10 stars for this A+ team!

I could not have asked for a better crew for our special day! They arrived punctual to our hotel room to get special moments of the ladies getting ready, while the other crew was at the church getting ready to film! They fulfilled my biggest wish of wanting the whole ceremony filmed, but also had a special added note from our loved ones on marriage to start our video. I am so lucky to have this to cherish for the rest of our marriage!

A mother of the bride viewpoint

Chicago Cinematic weddings put a wonderful montage of our daughter and son in law’s wedding. The most important thing to me was that they melted into the wedding scene with little to no intrusiveness. Their creative ability to get video content from various angles really stood out. We did include a drone which truly added a wonderful perspective to the event being recorded. They are very professional and are receptive to your thoughts and ideas.

AMAZING Experience !

Barb & Scott captured our wedding exactly how we envisioned. Working with them & their assistant was an absolute blessing. They were very communicative, easy going & fun to work with. They’ve worked with almost all of my husband’s family members with their weddings & did not disappoint with ours!

Was a little nervous because I’m a little uneasy in front of cameras, but they both made the experience so comfortable. They managed to get shots of things we didn’t even think of, but are so happy they did. Things like different angles in the church, the utilization of the drone capturing our car as we drove away (didn’t think we’d want a drone but am SO happy they have one!), and capturing family/friends emotions through film. Those are just a few examples of the many. They’re all small details, but they’re the big points of the night that encapsulate everything we want to remember.

Thank you again Barb & Scott, so happy to have worked with you!
