For those asking "Do I need a videographer??" the answer is YES!
Yes, you need a videographer. And yes, you need Highway 61 films. We enjoyed every detail from planning with Jason to receiving the email that our trailer and feature film was ready. I especially loved the raw footage that we purchased on top of our package. IT IS WORTH IT! We couldn't imagine not having Jason at our rehearsal dinner too and are so grateful we had him there to film our wedding weekend.
Jason and his team were truly wonderful to work with. When I asked for minor tweaks to the trailer, Jason got back with a perfectly modified version within a day of my inquiry. As for the longer video, because our wedding day had a hybrid of a traditional western ceremony and a Korean ceremony component following it, my husband and I wondered if the full length footage could capture both aspects of our big day to the fullest extent. The final product exceeded our expectations! Watching the video brings back magical memories of our wedding, and never fails to put a huge smile on our face every time. Thank you for your professionalism and beautiful work!
So many special memories here that you perfectly captured. Big thanks to you and your team for your talent and professionalism. Words can't express how special this video is for us. We will be sure to write an all star review for you guys on all the media outlets.
Highway 61 was the BEST! They had done a video for a good friend of mine who was extremely happy with their wedding video which prompted me to reach out to them. From the very first time we met with Jason to when we received our finished product, we could not be happier with the Highway 61 team. They're fun, positive, and made the whole day really fun and relaxed. We just loved our final video and they allowed us to make just a few edits at the end to ensure we were 100% happy with it. Everyone I showed the video to says it's the best wedding video they've ever seen. They are also a lot more affordable than some other companies we considered, and I think they make better videos!
Highway 61 handled the video of our daughter's wedding. The results were beyond any reasonable expectations. They caught so many unscripted moments (as well as the scripted ones) it appeared they had 50 videographers. The end result is a perfectly created film that will capture the memories forever.
As the father of the bride, I have to say this a first rate production. We can be pretty critical, but we found nothing to argue with. Perfect start to finish. Such a great idea to have the narration be the words spoken at the wedding. Loved it. Thanks.
After several days and many watches of your (our!) beautiful little film, words continue to escape me. I'm not sure how to adequately thank you for so simply and stunningly capturing so many intimate moments from our day. I watch it with joyful, nostalgic tears, and with so much gratitude for you. As promised, our wedding day was a true blur. Somehow, your film simultaneously slows down that rush and overwhelm, and highlights our top priority from the start of the wedding planning process: getting to marry each other! Thank you to the stars for all of your work, creativity, skill, and for your gentle presence throughout our wedding day. We love this trailer, and look so forward to seeing more.
This is absolutely perfect. We cannot watch it without laughing and crying each time. We love how you put it together and the shots that you got are beautiful. We cannot wait to show our family and friends. It is so incredible to relive those moments through your work, we love that you made the vows the crux of the trailer. Thank you again and please thank the rest of your team for us as well.
I especially love the camera moves you made through the curtain to reveal the room during the ceremony, the time lapse of the skyline, the camera spinning during our first dance and the shot of us holding hands with the wind blowing through Valerie's bouquet. Obviously we love all of it but those shots were very cool.
Jason, we really loved the video - you made the moments of our wedding even more unforgettable so beautifully. I am also surprised that hearing my own voice does not make me cringe as it usually does ;)
My wife and I would highly recommend working with Jason and his team at Highway 61 Films. They served as the videographers for our wedding. We found them to be very friendly, professional, and easy to work with throughout the entire wedding process. They did a wonderful job in capturing and editing all the footage of our big day into a fantastic and beautifully produced video. We believe that there work speaks for itself.
Check out a few of their videos on Vimeo. You will not be disappointed.
Highway 61 Films were amazing. They did my brother's wedding in Chicago - and we hired them to do our wedding in Washington, DC. The whole team was so easy to work with and they were accommodating during the whole process! Would absolutely recommend to anyone to capture their big day.
