Why Brides Rave Abous Us!

GRAPHIC 2

JayR was recommended by another vendor and I now know why. He was one of the most pleasant vendors to work with, very organized, and accommodating. I work in the Film/TV world so video was probably one of, if not the most important vendor to me. I didn’t just want a wedding video recording the day, I wanted a full blown cinematic experience that made my day feel like a film people would enjoy watching – whether they were there or not. So the pressure was on. And JayR delivered! Not only was he extremely available, professional and organized throughout the planning process, he was EVERYWHERE and I mean EVERYWHERE on wedding day getting coverage. Between him and his team, I don’t think a single detail wasn’t captured on film – which was a huge relief as photography can be limiting in coverage. What’s more, his capture style was professional and artistic. We had drones, we had dollies and steadicams. And he and his team were not shy in getting in the middle of events to get the best shot. I loved it! I haven’t received the 20 minute film yet, but the 5 minute trailer is AMAZING!!! My husband and I were so happy with it. It really felt like a trailer to a movie about the day and truly captured the events and feelings of the day. I couldn’t have asked for more. Finally, he couldn’t have been a nicer friendlier guy. Also very important when the videographer is witnessing private moments with you and your family. He is worth every penny and I would recommend him to anyone!

Prior to booking JayR, I watched hundreds of wedding trailers. Literally. I even went so far as to book a very good videographer 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!

JayR of J Castillo films is exceptional! He captured the most incredible moments of our most special day! My husband and I first learned about J Castillo Films because they had filmed one of our wedding band’s music videos at our wedding venue! Needless to say, our interest was peaked! The video was phenomenal and all we could think about was that we must have this for our special day! In researching his work some more, my husband and I were just blown away by the talent. We just knew we had to have JayR there to capture our day! And that he did, in the most beautiful way imaginable. People are still talking about it almost 6 months later. We are so forever thankful and highly recommend JayR and J Castillo films to anyone looking for next level videography, for any big life event!

Professional, creative and more than delivers. JayR and Nick were such a pleasure to have filming my wedding. Not only did they work respectfully with my photographers but guests are still commenting that you never even noticed they were there. I just received my wedding recap video and am overwhelmed with happiness. It is spot on exactly what I dreamed it to be. Outstanding work.

Wedding is one of the most important occasions in every couple’s life. Thus, we were very fortunate that it was jcastillo films that covered our wedding. Sigh and Jayr were truly an amazing couple. They worked with so much passion you would think they were working on their own wedding. They are fun and easy to work with. My husband wasn’t really comfortable when people were taking pictures of him, but Sigh and jayr were truly great in putting him at ease. In fact, they were able to capture us in our best, natural element. They let us be ourselves and savor the moment.
They were very punctual. On our wedding day, they arrived early so we were really not rushing. We were mesmerized when we saw the video because they were meticulously done. Jayr and his group were able to put all our beautiful moments together and made them into one watchable and amazing video. I could not think of anyone who could have done it better. I truly recommend jcastillo films to everyone.

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 to every one we know! Thank you again guys! 🙂

J Castillo films was recommended to us by a close friend who recently acquired their services for their wedding. After viewing our friend’s wedding video and the other videos on their website, we knew we wanted them. Planning and organizing with Sigh and JayR was a breeze considering that you still have a million things to prep for the wedding as a couple. On our wedding day, JayR and his assistant were very accommodating and was able to direct our shots very well. Our vendors did not have any issues with them. After viewing our video on their site we knew their services were well worth it.

We are truly blessed to have found JayR and Sigh to capture our wedding day so beautifully. From the moment we saw JayR’s work we knew we had to schedule an appointment with him to capture our wedding day. When we met Sigh, she was professional, amazing and very helpful. She was able to assist us to have a seamless wedding day and helped us select a package that worked for us. On our wedding day I was a little late with hair/makeup, but JayR was excellent and waited to video all the footage we needed prior to heading to the church 🙂 this put me at so much ease. Not mention this dynamic duo works well as a team, Sigh handling the details and JayR filming. It was easy to see that they love what they do. Not only that, they genuinely care about their clients. Again, Ryan and I are beyond thankful. We have received the trailer for now and to say the least it’s perfection and cry every time. Thank you for everything Sigh and JayR! You two are the best, hands down! Love Ryan and Kristen Mulroy

There are no words to explain the create genius that is Castillo films. Not only are they incredible to work with, they really know their stuff! I wanted to make sure that capturing my wedding would be in the hands of the best, and JR did not disappoint. So much time goes into every detail of making your wedding so special and it was amazing to see this incorporated into film in such a beautifully artistic way. Thank you so so much for making this lasting memory for us…we are obsessed with the video!

J Castillo Films is the perfect cinematographer anyone could ask for. They are meticulous and attentive to your every needs. Everything that occurred before, during, and after our special day was excellent and professionally executed. They kept in touch with us and provided an extremely detailed timeline for our special day. We were able to meet on several occasions and both Jay R and Sigh provided extra tips for our wedding day. The end result was just magnificent. Our wedding recap captured every heartfelt moment of our wedding and continues to bring tears to our eyes as we watch it over and over. Thank you J Castillo Films again so much and you guys are truly wonderful.

JayR Castillo and the whole team was excellent. They went over everything in advance, and made us feel real comfortable. We didn’t have to worry about that aspect of our wedding, at all.

They conducted themselves very professionally and the video turned out great. They had great creative ideas and listened to what we wanted, as well. It really could not have gone any better.

I highly recommend their company.

We just received our wedding video trailer and we are blown away by how amazing it was ! Our friends and family couldn’t believe how creative and professional looking it was. Working with Sigh was incredibly easy. She was always easily available to contact and always had answers to all of our questions. On our wedding day I barely noticed she was there filming, but somehow she captured all the big and small moments of our day. Their work speaks for itself since it is amazing, but I would be happy to highly recommend them to anyone thinking of using them as their videographer.

My husband I could not be happier with J. Castillo Films! Our wedding recap exceeded our expectations in every way and captures our wedding day perfectly.

Initially, we were a bit concerned because it was difficult to meet in-person due to J. Castillo Films’ limited hours of operation and our scheduling constraints; however, it is clear that everything we discussed over the phone and via our skype chat was taken into consideration because all of our requests were incorporated into our wedding recap. The recap is absolutely perfect and we cannot wait to see our full wedding video!

We would highly recommend J. Castillo Films to all couples looking to memorialize their wedding in a creative and unique way.

J Castillo Films Videography is just amazing. JayR and Sigh were great to work with. JayR and his assistant were wonderful at my wedding and worked so well in tandem with the photographer- it was incredible. JayR is laid back, with an ease that will put any bride’s nerves to rest. Working with him felt natural and effortless. The preliminary e-mail discussions with Sigh leading up to the wedding at first seemed overly formal and I must admit, I was slightly put off by how “by the book” and impersonal the interaction felt. But on reflection, I think this is just her manner and a very efficient and effective way for their business to be run. Upon my first phone conversation with Sigh, she was so thorough and detail oriented, I realized that her manner was just one that is very precise and professional- not impersonal as I thought it may have been to begin with. She ran through every moment of my wedding- addressing issues and time concerns that I hadn’t even considered; and after speaking with her for about an hour, any feelings of impersonal service were no longer present. I only mention this in case another bride has a similar initial experience- just know that once the ball starts really rolling, Sigh and JR are truly incredible and professional, to a T. Our video they shot was perfect. It captured our personalities and created a video that we will cherish our whole lives. Brides: Do yourself a favor- splurge on the videographer. You may not think you want one, cause you will have a photographer- TRUST me, spending a little extra in the videographer dept was the BEST decision. It is completely different from having a photographer and captures moments that still photos just cannot. There are not many out there that I would recommend, and trust me I did my fair share of research and even met with several “well known” photographers/videographers. J Castillo Films is the best out there. Book them now. Don’t think. Book! They’re the best. So happy with the results! 🙂

After seeing samples of their work we knew Jay and Sigh were exactly who we wanted to shoot our wedding. I love the idea of cinematography rather than just a boring wedding video. They were both so amazing throughout the process and always made us feel comfortable. Both my husband and I aren’t big on taking pictures and being filmed so we were a little worried about how it would come out but we couldn’t have been happier. My family isn’t one to get very emotional but everyone said they cried watching our recap video. The editing was amazing, every part of it went perfectly with the song we chose. It’s so amazing that we get to have this video to remember our day forever. Seriously worth every penny! I would recommend them to anyone!

Hiring an amazing videographer for our wedding that incorporated modern cinematography within their style was of upmost importance to my husband and I. After doing extensive research and viewing videos from vendors all across Manhattan and Brooklyn, we still weren’t finding the perfect match for us. We fortunately decided to widen our search into the Suffolk County area and from there we met J Castillo Films……and the rest is history. From the minute we met with Sigh and JayR, we were blown away by their work, professionalism and dedication. We absolutely loved their style and signed our contract on the spot during our initial meeting with them. JayR was such a pleasure to work with on the day of our wedding. My husband and I are both camera shy and he made us feel at ease and was able to capture so many memorable candid moments without us even realizing he was there. We received our highlight video last week and I’m still speechless and in awe about how beautiful it came out. It’s absolutely stunning and I’m so excited to see the full version. Choosing to work with J Castillo Films was one of the best decisions we have ever made!

J Castillo Films is a must for your wedding! Initially, we are only interested on having a professional photographer for our wedding due to budget constraints and my husband preference. But I want my family back home who can’t make it to our wedding to see a highlight of our wedding and that’s when i bumped into J Castillo Films while I was doing my research. I saw a sample video at Style Me Pretty New York wedding blog which drew me to check out their main website. Every sample was impressive and it evokes emotions and personal experience to each bride and groom story and that’s how I knew that a photograph won’t suffice for a great wedding memory. You need a videographer that has cinematic style. Even though we researched and looked at other possible options. Something tells me that we should stick with my instinct and first choice. We are glad we did! One of the best choice and best vendor we had for our wedding.

J Castillo Films is highly commendable in terms of professionalism. They are quick to reply and have an answer for everything ASAP which is a plus especially if you are getting near to your wedding date. They are flexible with the meetings and follow up meetings in a sense they can offer Skype or Phone call meetings when we can’t make it to their office. They are good in giving suggestions for your wedding outline which is big help when you are already stressed with all the wedding preps. They are punctual, polite, hardworking and professional on the actual wedding day. Everybody loved our sample wedding recap! They are flexible too with some changes we requested for the editing. And we got the edited version ASAP. We love the song and the video. We wish it was longer and we are already excited and looking forward to see the full version of our wedding cinematic video. We are highly recommending J Castillo Films and make sure you’ll make them a part of your wedding day for a stress-free fun enjoyable day!

We came across JCastillo Films online in our search for a wedding videographer. They were a breath of fresh air after seeing so many videos that looked the same over and over again. My husband and I have never been the type to go average and cookie-cutter, we have always liked to have something a bit different that really reflects who we are as a couple. After watching their recaps, we knew we had to meet them. We set up an appointment with them and booked on the spot.

They were so easy to get along with, we loved their vision and we were so excited to be working with them. We also booked over a year and a half in advance and through that time they were always there to answer any questions or listen to any thoughts we might have had. They are extremely professional.

We just got our recap back last week and all I can say is WOW! They did a fantastic job and the compliments we are are receiving are endless. We cannot stop watching it either. They truly captured us as a couple…from the details we did ourselves to capturing the most important parts of our day! We even had a few hiccups with our venue that day and Sigh went with the flow and made it work. We are beyond thrilled and cannot wait to see the final product. JayR & Sigh were one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

We highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed!

Our highlight reel was really touching and my friends commented, “it looks like a real movie!” :-). I would definitely recommend Sigh and JayR!

When you hire J Castillo Films (and you SHOULD hire J Castillo Films), make sure to give them that little bit of extra time to get the shots they need. Your photographer is probably going to demand a lot of time – and the end result will be the same ‘ol wedding pictures everyone has. But when the J Castillo Films gang get the footage they need, they’re going to make you a video unlike you’ve ever seen before. Your video’s true cinema quality will impress everyone you know, and every shot will truly capture the magic of your wedding day. These guys are money well spent . . . they made my wedding video look fantastic and they turned around the recap video very shortly after my event. I can’t say enough good things; they are absolutely the best option in the Long Island area. If I could give J Castillo Films more than 5 stars I would.

JayR and Sigh were a pleasure to work with from our initial meeting through receiving our wedding trailer. We knew from the beginning that we loved their style of work. In fact, they were the only videographers that we met with.

The day of our wedding JayR and his brother Jun were punctual and on their A game. While their professionalism definitely shone through both before and during the wedding what has really impressed me is their work after our wedding. They have been very flexible with me through the video creation process. Although I picked one song and okayed it with them for my trailer, a week later I decided I hated the song and it depressed me. Without questioning me, Sigh asked me to pick another song out of the songs available. I am so happy I was given this opportunity.

I received my trailer yesterday and immediately fell in love with it. The trailer told the story of my day and had me in tears! There was one shot I was hoping for that was not included in the trailer and I asked them to add it in. Less than 24 hours later I received an email saying the video had been updated. This customer service was very impressive.

My friends and family who have seen the video have all had similar responses “wow, I have never seen a wedding video like that. it’s incredible” and “it looks like a movie.” If this is what my wedding trailer looked like, I can’t wait to see the finished product!!!

I highly recommend JCastillo Films for your wedding. You will not be disappointed.

Jay provides a unique service in that what you’re watching is less of a traditional “wedding video” (really…who wants to sit through those anyway…they are boring lets face it), and more so a work of art. You come to appreciate the passion that they truly put into their work, and it shows in the final result. From the first meeting to the wedding day they were always very nice respectful and professional. Every artist should have a vision of the final product, otherwise you’re going to end up with something that everyone else already has, and Jay and Sigh truly have that ability. We really couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

JayR was amazing to work with! JayR and Ray E. shot our wedding and they did an amazing job. I didn’t even know they were there!

The recap of our wedding is fantastic – it captured the feeling of the whole day. I cannot wait to get the final video.

I highly reccomend this vendor to future brides – the price was right for the quality of work they provide.

The road that led us here…

What a fantastic experience! From start to finish my husband and I were both thrilled to have worked with Jay R, Ankush & Sigh! In the beginning, I found myself tooling around the internet quite a bit trying to figure out who to use as our videographer. We were blown away when we saw Jay R & Sighs work! I think it’s extremely important to understand that they are not typical “videographers” but rather they are “cinematographers.” There’s a big difference and finding the latter of the two is a little tricky and even more so to find someone who shoots exceptionally well in this style. Their videos are more like movies, shot in beautifully enhanced color and full of graceful sweeping thoughtful shots that capture the feelings and emotions of the day in a creative style that you and your family will treasure forever. As far as we are concerned, they are the absolute best! From the beginning, Sigh was always available to answer any of my questions by phone and returned my emails immediately! (even random ones I sent at 11 o’clock at night lol) When we had our final meeting, Sigh went over a detailed timeline that actually made more sense then what we were planning for the day of!

The day of:
Jay R & Ankush actually drove in close to 2 hours just to shoot our NJ wedding! They arrived right on time, were extremely friendly, upbeat, discrete mingled well with our family/ friends as we got ready and were extremely considerate of our personal space and not making us feel like we were being shot. At one point I realized that we were running about 20 minutes behind sched. and commented to Jay R that I was running behind on time. I was beginning to get nervous b/c I knew he still needed to get in our “first meet!” He smiled, and said it was ok and continued getting in the shots he needed of me before we headed off to get the other shots in. We never felt rushed or as though they were annoyed with us, it was more of a – no big deal, we’ll get it all done- kind of feeling! Whew!!!

At the church, the guys were extremely discrete, never in our face, never blocking our families view of us and very respectful of being in a church and attending a religious ceremony. That was a huge deal for us and we appreciated their thoughtfulness so much! Jay R & Ankush worked extremely well with our photographers as well, often asking them if they had gotten in their shots before asking us to move and being respectful of them if they asked us to pose while on the way to shoot in a different spot. We never felt their presence during our first dance or quiet moments during the evening, but they were somehow always there…I wish I could explain it, but I can’t. They were everywhere, but somehow, we never knew 😉

The Highlight Video:
WOW! …That’s an understatement….but I truly have no words! We were so blown away by it!!! We immediately began sharing it with family and friends and no one could believe how amazing it was. To begin with, most of them had never saw a cinematic wedding video, so that completely blew their mind! We couldn’t believe how many little moments they had captured and how beautiful, elegant, fun, exciting, touching our video was! There were so many little things they had captured without us knowing…a music box my husband had given me after going to see Phantom of the Opera. They had no idea that he’d actually looked for this music box for about 7 years before finally finding it and getting it for me. It’s extremely sentimental. It’s the opening picture of our video and appears in it later! Our cat, who means the world to us, sitting on the bed wearing his tux tie… a picture of my grandparents and our florist securing it onto my bouquet, glances, smiles, looks ….all these small things that captured the true spirit of our day….It’s all there….and this is only the highlight video! Our family and friends keep asking when we are getting more lolol We simply tell them, perfection takes time 😉

Looking for a Videographer?
You probably are if you’re reading this review and as you can tell, we’re huge fans! When I was shopping for vendors, I often asked myself, “Why would I choose this vendor?” and then researched them. If I could give you one suggestion when it comes to J Castillo Films, it would be to ask yourself- “Why wouldn’t I use this vendor?” …because honestly…they’re just that good. Choosing them was one of the best wedding decisions we made! For all they did, every leg of the way, for their caring, their exceptional craft, their dedication to their work and creating a record of our day to share with generations to come, we’ll remember them fondly…..always.

We wish nothing but the same experience for you!

Words cannot express our gratitude and satisfaction we have with sigh and jay-r. From the beginning they made us feel so comftorable in feeling that what they do is top of the line and we would’nt be disappointed. They were so hip and fun from the beginning. Any questions i had, they answered right away. When we saw our video recap, we couldnt believe how perfect it was! The wedding day went so smooth. They were’nt pushy, they were very laid back and we had fun! Especially with jay-r’s Harold and kumar joke! They really let me enjoy my day! I would recommend them to everyone i know!

Apologies beforehand as this post is more than likely going to be longwinded, but looking throughout numerous sites I felt that to truly help other brides details about experiences are key. My Husband and I had our wedding on October 21, 2011 and throughout the planning stages, we couldn’t decide if we wanted a Videographer, much less afford one! One of my Husband’s co-workers was in his planning stages as well, and told him about the videographer He and his Fiance had booked, J Castillo Films. He gave us the website, and while mulling over the thought and expense of hiring a videographer, we decided to see his website. We were FLOORED when we saw the quality and look of the samples. They looked like mini music videos, they were so awesome! As we talked more about it, we were convinced we couldn’t afford something like this, and much less so after looking into prices at similar companies. We were starting to believe we weren’t going to have video. But the more we talked to each other about how awesome JayR and Sigh’s videos were, the more we decided it couldn’t hurt to at least meet with them. One of the BEST DECISIONS WE MADE. Not only were they able to meet us on such short notice (only a couple of months before the wedding), they were willing to accommodate us during the times that worked best for us. We all met, and JayR and Sigh were so down to earth, professional and, almost a rarity when looking at wedding vendors, LIKABLE! The quality was excellent and the prices were more affordable than other companies out there. My Husband and I decided to book with them, and couldn’t have been happier. Every silly, stupid question we came up with (and us Brides have TONS) was answered quickly and clearly. Every issue we had imagined that could pop up, they had a solution for. Planning a wedding is like going into battle and you want the best soldiers on your side. Well, JayR and Sigh are those soldiers. When the big day finally came, not only were they professional they also knew how to have fun and go along with things, making My husband and I feel at ease. All of their ideas were cool, and nothing ever felt “forced” or cookie cutter. They coordinated with our Photographers and that helped to make everything seem to run smooth, even when outside forces were conspiring against us (we’re looking at you Parks Dept! haha). They were the epitome of Professionalism and class. After the wedding, there has been constant contact between us in regards to our little recap video and other aspects, and we never felt like they forgot about us. We were so happy to have worked with JayR and Sigh. You truly feel you are working with people who have a Passion for what they do and care about their clients, not just as a way to make money. So after reading ALL of this (once again I apologize), even if you are just thinking about getting video, You would be doing yourself a ginormous disservice if you didn’t at least talk to JayR and Sigh @ J Castillo Films. It’ll be one of the best decisions you will ever make.

JayR and Sigh of J Castillo Films was nothing short of AMAZING!!!! We weren’t sure if we wanted to hire a videographer but once we met with JayR and Sigh, and saw their previous work, we just had to book them. From the beginning JayR and Sigh have been so sweet, professional and ooozing with creativity. They were also very receptive and open to our own ideas and suggestions, and have always responded to all of our emails promptly. We received our highlight video and we were so glad that we chose J Castillo Films to document one of the biggest days of our life. We can’t stop watching it. If you are looking for fresh, creative cinematography, I highly recommend J Castillo Films. 🙂

What a wonderful experience it was working with JayR and Sigh – they make a great team. They not only provided us with spectacular service, they also helped us organize the event flow. We absolutely loved our wedding highlight and can’t wait for the 30-minute video. If you’re looking for something way more creative and higher quality than than your average, run-of-the-mil wedding video, look no further.

My husband and I were so lucky to find JayR and Sigh on WeddingWire back in April and we were even luckier to find them when they were offering a promotion, so we got their incredible service for a steal!

It was so important to us that we found videographers that, not only had wonderful work, but were also wonderful people, and that was JayR and Sigh. They were always quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls, they asked us numerous questions to make sure what they were shooting was exactly what we wanted, and they were just so pleasant! (Many of you brides have encountered those wedding vendors that have attitudes. Yikes!)

During the wedding, they were sure to capture everything, but were also sure not to be too invasive. It was the best of both worlds.

I could go on and on about the video quality and the artistry they put behind each wedding video and recap they make, but their work speaks for itself. It’s beautiful and unique to each couple.

One of, if not the, best vendors we worked with. Highly, highly recommend them!

Jayr & Sigh are the future of the videography industry. Their cutting edge editing is superb. Absolutely the perfect mix of professionalism and creativity that will leave completely satisfied. Extremely easy to work with and at times don’t even realize they are there. We would highly recommend J. Castillo Films to any and everyone. Their work speaks for itself and it was an honor to have true professionals and our new friends video our wedding day.

“Unbelievable. The Castillo’s are true masters of the art! My husband and I were really unsure about getting video because we really didn’t have the money to spend for it. Boy are we glad we did. They’re pricing was just too good to pass up!

We live out of state so weren’t able to meeting with hem face to face. We did everything via email and Skype. They were so accommodating and willing to work with us and our schedule.

The day of the wedding Sigh came and did her thing. She was so fun to work with! She was like a ninja during the wedding. You never really knew she was there, but she was taking amazing shots!

The final product was far more than we expected. She was able to capture both of our personalities in the video and the editing is amazing! Everyone we show can’t believe the quality of the video.

I HIGHLY recommend J. Castillo for your wedding. They are one of the best vendors we got to work with. We didn’t give them much direction and there was no need to. They know what they’re doing and will give you an outstanding final product!”

“Jay and Sigh of J Castillo Films are absolutely amazing! I can’t express enough what a pleasure it was to work with them. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a videographer but as soon as I watched some of their wedding recap videos on their website, I knew I had to hire Jay and Sigh. From the moment I signed our contract to the moment we received our wedding video, Jay and Sigh have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only are they a funny loving couple but they are true professionals. They answered every email in a timely manner and took the time out to meet with me via skype when I could not meet with them in person. They arrived the morning of my wedding, on time and went straight to work. Jay and Sigh made sure to make me laugh when I looked like I was going to pass out and took the time to capture moments with my bridesmaids and my family, moments they knew I would want to remember forever. At the ceremony, they captured each and every touching moment between my husband and I, including our vows, which watching it again, brought us both to tears. At the reception hall, they were everywhere, capturing everything yet never feeling intrusive or in the way. Whenever I had a moment to look up or look around amidst the craziness of it all, I saw Sigh and Jay waving at me, camera in hand, capturing every moment always smiling.

After the wedding, they continued to work with us, keeping us up to date with how the video was coming along. And finally, watching our wedding recap video truly brought my husband and I to tears. Their videos are a true work of art, so fresh and cutting edge, yet so intimidate and one of a kind. I can’t thank Jay and Sigh enough for capturing our big day and making it memorable and amazing! I highly, highy recommend them! Thank you guys so much!!!!!”

“Our cinematographer Sigh did an amazing job on our wedding day. My husband and I just recently watched our much awaited wedding recap and we were both blown away. It’s nice that she was able to capture how the day went and all the emotions that came with it. The day felt like it went by so fast, I embarrassingly keep on watching the video because its something that I can hold on to besides my photographs. I’m so glad that my husband persuaded me to hire a videographer/cinematographer because its such a great investment. It’s something that we will have forever and hopefully one day our children can watch as well.”

We had a video done to “Shots” and they were nice enough to do a parent version to “Tonights Gonna be a Good Night.” Sigh was so helpful & professional. She replied to all my emails so quickly eventhough I probably drove her crazy with questions. She even helped me plan out my timeline for the entire day. You must hire them for your wedding!”

“JayR and Sigh of J Castilllo Films were a complete pleasure to work with. We were lucky to book them late in the summer wedding season. They’re completely friendly and accessible – more like friends with really good cameras than just another vendor. Also, they were thoroughly prepared and dependable, arriving plenty early for the day’s events. We’ve recently seem the short-form recap video they made, and it’s elegantly powerful and emotional. We highly recommend these guys!”

I stumbled across J Castillo Films on LI Weddings and knew their style was something I’d be interested in. I researched many videographers but they all seemed the same. I wanted something more. All of the wedding recaps that I watched on their website brought tears to my eyes and from that moment I knew they were the ones. From the start, Sigh and JayR gave us such a good feeling. Not only were they professional, but they treated us like friends. Sigh and I kept in touch throughout the wedding planning and was always quick to respond to my emails. After the wedding we waited with much anticipation for our recap (which was only a few short weeks). We were so happy with the final product and have received nothing but compliments. It brought us right back to the day of our wedding and the footage they captured is amazing. I would highly recommend J Castillo Films. They are truly talented in what they do and I would love to work with them again in the future! 🙂

“JayR and Sigh were absolutely fantastic for us, from start to finish. When planning our wedding, we weren’t originally going to get a video – but after seeing out finished product, it was the best decision we made!

They were always approachable, truly listened to what we wanted and produced a finished product that was somehow even better than we expected. We couldn’t be happier with the experience, from our initial meetings with JayR and Sigh, through the wedding day, and now afterwards when they continue to provide the same level of professionalism and artistry that we have come to expect.

Would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone for their wedding. You wont be disappointed!”

“Jay-R and his wife Sigh are masters in the craft of videography. There uncanny knack for capturing amazing shots and angles is second to none, and it truly shows in the final product. They blend seamlessly into the environment allowing the event to flow smoothly and unimpeded. You will rarely ever notice that they are there during important ceremonial scenes,yet are confident that they have captured the magic of it. Their editing is on the level of professional top rate music and movie producers and editors. If you don’t believe me than watch one of the videos they made for me (http://vimeo.com/25955225) or the other videos that are available on their site. Honestly, with the final product that I have received, I feel any price quoted would be a bargain considering the quality, production value, and love that was put into it. Jay-R and Sigh Thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing what I thought would be impossible to capturing: the love, the romance, and the humor of each and every moment of my wedding day.”

“We cannot say enough about J Castillo Films! Every time we spoke to them we were always treated like their only client. We fell in love with his work from the beginning and we were hoping that he would capture the ‘real us’ and not what a typical videographer thinks he/she should put in a video. Well, we just received our recap and when we saw it we were beyond words! J Castillo not only exceeded our expectations by 1000%, he captured and created a video that is truly a piece of art. One of my friends quoted him as the, “Francis Ford Coppola of wedding videos!” We cannot say enough how beautiful his work is and every time we watch it, we can re-live every emotion of our wedding. I have seen a thousand wedding videos and J Castillo’s stand out from the rest!”

“We were nervous about hiring a videographer because we didn’t want to be followed around all day by a huge camera with a bright light shining in our faces. When we met with JayR and Sigh from J Castillo Films they listened to our concerns and made us feel comfortable that their style was more modern and unobtrusive. They showed us sample videos that were shot in HD with small handheld cameras that looked absolutely amazing! At our wedding they were very professional and fun to work with. They sent us a highlight recap video to share with our friends and family soon after the wedding and it is fabulous! We can’t wait to see our full video! JayR and Sigh are so talented, have great personalities and their prices were very reasonable. We highly recommend J Castillo Films!”

“We were initially undecided on video for our wedding and didn’t know if we could fit it in our budget. I had read a number of very positive reviews of JCastillo Films on LIWeddings.com so we went to his website and were immediately impressed with the artistic quality of the recap videos he has on the site. He was also offering a promotion so we made an appointment to meet with him in Deer Park to talk about his style and see some samples of his work. Sold! We booked with him on the spot. We liked him and Sigh so much we didn’t feel the need to meet with any other video vendors. Not only is he very talented, JayR also has a great personality and a genuine enthusiasm and passion for his work. We knew he would be a great addition to our day. He and Sigh often work together as a team and both were very responsive, professional, and helpful throughout the process. On the day of the wedding JayR came with two assistants which at first seemed like a lot (our photog we booked separately also brought two assistants) but as the day went on everyone blended in together and we hardly noticed they were there. JayR’s assistants were also super friendly and helped make sure things went smoothly. (Especially Melissa who was so nice and calming while the girls and I were getting ready).

We went on our honeymoon about a month after the wedding and were sent the link to the recap video while on our trip. It was amazing!!! We just loved it and were thrilled with how it turned out. It’s so creative and beautifully edited. We cannot wait to see the full length video. We are so thankful to JayR and so happy that we decided to get video for the wedding, I know we would have regretted it forever if we didn’t. JayR has given us a memory we will keep for a lifetime and every time we watch it it brings us right back to the happiest day of our lives.”

“Having a videographer was one of the most important things to me for our wedding. There is so much more captured thru video and more creativity then just printed photos. In meeting with J Castillo Films we were ready to book them on the spot, which we never do. JayR and Sigh have such welcoming, laid back and fun personalities that we just felt so at ease with them and knew they were a perfect fit for us. Sigh filmed our wedding and she went above and beyond. She was there with me at 8 am getting ready and stayed until the very end of the wedding. The ceremony and pictures were outside and it was sweltering hot out and this did not set her back a beat as it did me. I just received our recap video 3 hours ago and I have already watched it about a million times. They did such an amazing job I cannot wait to see the rest!!!!! I would absolutely recommend J Castillo Film to anyone looking for a videographer.”

“The Castillo team is truly remarkable! Their work speaks for itself. With just a few meetings Sigh and JayR knew exactly what Naveen and I were looking for! They were extremely professional and flexible and at the same time their work is outstanding! Being from the advertising industry, I was extremely picky and had high standards about my vendors and they did exactly what I wanted them to do for my highlight video! We did absolutely nothing, we went on our honeymoon, and as soon as we were back…BOOM and amazing recap video to relive our amazing wedding day….they picked out the song, captured the most important things from the most important day of my life…I was truly impressed, especially this being their first Indian wedding! I highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed! They are an absolute pleasure to work with. With their small handheld cameras (but highly qualified) we didn’t even feel like they were there and were able to capture everything without coming in your way….they made the whole process seamless. I hope to work with them soon again….maybe a video for my first born 😉

Thanks again!!! I LOVE my highlight video and keep replaying it over and over….”
