At O'Grady Cinema, we let our work speak for itself. However, our team also works hard to establish a personal relationship with each and every client with whom we work with and encourage them to critique and review our performance. We are not happy with our work unless you are completely satisfied with it, and what better opinion to listen to than the bride herself. Feel free to take some time to review what these brides have said about our work and character. We look forward to working with you to capture one of the most special days of your life.
We loved working with Michael! From the beginning, he was very nice and responsive, shared his ideas, and was open to hearing ours. On the big day, he gave direction when needed but during the ceremony and reception, we barely noticed he was there. That was great because we never felt like we were being filmed and could act naturally. The wedding montage Michael put together was perfect. We received many compliments! It was the right amount of romantic without being cheesy. An added plus is that you get separate videos of the ceremony, speeches, first dance, and cake cutting. He captured all the best moments and even some that we hadn't remembered. We highly recommend him!
We hired Mike through our photographer as our parents wanted it filmed and Boy! we are so glad we did. Mike has done amazing job capturing moments that we did not know were happening. He was so down to earth and was super easy and fun to work with. We love our wedding montage and that will be something that we show everyone as it sums up our day in 6mins. He captured our personality perfectly. We have to say we didn't even know he was filming us or the guests, it was as if he was invisible and we have no idea how he managed to get half of the shots as it looks as if he split himself into 3 people. He really is one of the best in Chicago and very reasonable for money. We cannot recommend him enough to future brides and grooms.
We hired Mike on recommendation from a friend who used him for her wedding. I made sure he was not a videographer that was "in your face," and his response was simply that he was a "ninja" and I would forget he was even there. He was so right. He is extremely friendly,professional, and he fits in with the crowd. His assistant, Trinity, was laid back and there to get great shots. I would recommend him to any of my friends.
Michael filmed our wedding back in August and we could not have asked for a better videographer! We definitely got more than what we paid for! He is not only extremely talented and easy to work with, but also very affordable. He captured the best moments in our wedding montage. The first time I saw it I cried hysterically! It was like something out of a holleywood movie! He captured every detail beautifully. You will not regret choosing Michael to capture your big day, trust me!
"We used Michael for our wedding day a few weeks ago on 6/6/2015. I could not have been happier with our choice. Michael was super nice and easy-going about everything-especially with our huge and crazy bridal party! He worked wonderfully with my photographer so they wouldn't get in the way of each other shots. Our dinner went longer than expected at the reception, and he was able to stay longer without any worry. He literally fit right in and I am so excited to see our video! I have seen some of his previous work so I know ours will truly be exceptional!"

"He captured moments I didn't even know I was having. He knew it was precious keepsake before I did. He's friendly, funny, flexible and easy to work with. He gives direction and also takes direction which was nice. He has an artists eye but doesn't give you an "artsy fartsy" wedding compilation. I've recommended him to many of my friends getting married. And I am recommending him now!"
