J Castillo Films is a New York based boutique cinematography studio that was established in 2011 by JayR Castillo and Sigh Robes. Our keen artistic eyes and our background as musicians have helped us offer unique and high quality wedding films to our clients. As a boutique studio, we only accept a limited number of clients per year to maintain and deliver the highest quality of products to our clients.
Aside from wedding videography coverage, we also cover other events such as Corporate Events, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and Sweet Sixteens. We also produce Documentaries and Music Videos.
Our goal is to capture and create wedding films that our clients will love and be proud of for the rest of their lives. We put together a cinematic story of the most important day of their lives like no other can.
We believe that our work doesn’t begin and end on the wedding day. We therefore make sure that the whole experience — from the inquiry process, to the booking process, to the song selection process, to the meetings, to the wedding day, to the day they get the fully edited product — would be seamless and an enjoyable experience for our clients.
“Prior to booking JayR, I watched hundreds of wedding trailers. Literally. I even went so far as to book a very good wedding videography from overseas, however, when I came upon JayR’s films I knew he was the best. When we met with JayR he was thorough, understanding and clear. We felt completely comfortable telling him what we wanted and he was able to fill in the spots with his expertise. When we shot our pre – nuptial film with him we knew we made 100% the right choice. He was super chill and relaxed and everything we did just felt natural. I’m so glad we did the pre nuptial/engagement film (we showed it on our wedding day in lieu of a same day edit) and it was a hit! It brought full circle our story. On the day of I was so relieved to have him and his crew there. First off they were all so nice and chill, plus their equipment was so on point (I felt like I was in a movie!). Also, we told him we both wanted our dogs in the film because they mean so much to us and he obliged. Him and his team (I think a total of 4 of them) were like shadows, you had no idea they were catching all these important moments. While shooting seamlessly during our wedding and reception they were always present if we had any questions. I would 100% tell any couple that a wedding film is super important. We recently received our photos and loved them but theres something different about watching your wedding day unfold. We constantly get so many compliments on it and to be honest I love watching it too! Jay R and his team are amazing and worth every cent!”

“All you have to do is watch the wedding trailers on their website to know how amazing their work is! But on top of that they are just awesome people! Leading up to the wedding we spoke to Sigh who helped plan out a timeline on how the day would go which made us feel more prepared and at ease. On the day of the wedding our family, friends and us barely noticed JayR and Nick filming and when we did they were very professional, friendly and made us feel at ease. Our guests even commented to us on how great they were and how they were not intrusive at all as they have seen other videographers & cinematographers be at other weddings. They also worked well with our photographer in making sure both received the shots they needed. We have recently received our wedding recap video and absolutely love it!!! Everyone who has seen it says it is by far the best wedding video they have ever seen! And it’s just the recap! You can see the hard work and heart that goes into every wedding video J Castillo Films produces. We would definitely (and are planning to) refer J Castillo Films wedding videography to every one we know! Thank you again guys! :)”
