Here at Coastline, we’re always thankful for all of our brides and grooms, but every year in January we take a moment to read all of your kind words, and this year we are so overwhelmed!
Thanks to all of you, your kind words, and your raving reviews, we have won WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards as well as The Knot Best of Weddings, and we are all so excited and overjoyed.
So, we wanted to take a moment and share some of the reviews that gave us goosebumps, thank you all for making our careers and passions so worthwhile!
“Coastline went above and beyond our expectations in making us feel entirely comfortable. We both agree, we found some sort of comfort and security in having the coastline staff there that day, as if we had a brand new group of friends who wanted to make our day as special as it could be.”
“As a professional myself with many high expectations of the people I work with, I rarely extend my highest admiration and support, but with Coastline Studios it is easy for me to do! You will not find a more talented, professional, and pleasant video productions company than Coastline Studios. They helped me transform my wild and crazy ideas for an event into a reality that far surpassed even my highest expectations. They were always on time, always ready, and captured shots so beautiful that make Hollywood movies look like amateur productions. From the initial consultation to the final screening of our video, Coastline Studios consistently impressed me.”
“If you are looking for the best videographers to capture your wedding or event, Coastline Studios is for you. I will never forget the moment I watched the video they made for the first time, because I felt like I was watching a hollywood movie, but it was about me. It captured the feeling and emotions of all of the biggest moments in the most incredible ways. I’m sure lots of videographers can film your day and get the important moments on camera, but will they be able to capture the true essence and feel of those moments? I honestly feel like I’ve become one of Coastline Studios biggest advocates, because the way they film events will blow anyone’s mind.”
“Everybody told me that the day was going to come and go in the blink of an eye and I was bound and determined to not let that happen. But it did. And though I took moments to step back and soak it all in, it was impossible to be in a million places at once. The great news is coastline captured it all. They captured the “I do’s” and the first kiss of course. But they also captured the breeze off the lake, twirls on the dance floor, the looks, the hugs, and the tears. How can you possibly fit so much love and excitement, not to mention 200 loved ones, into one single day? The answer is deep breathing, a good pair of flats, and most definitely Coastline Studios. ”
“It’s plain to see that there’s no finer videography outfit in Michigan than Coastline Studios. Their attention to detail and compassionate treatment make for an exquisite production. Other videography services can only aspire to the quality and value that they offer. Staffed entirely by unobtrusive professionals, Coastline will make your special day shine forever.”
“John and his team were extremely professional, easy going, and even in our 104 degree hot July day did anything and everything to get the perfect shots. They are extremely dedicated and passionate about what they do, and it really shines through on their work. Having Coastline Studios capture our wedding day was one of the best investments of our entire wedding. ”
“Hiring Coastline Studios was the absolute best unexpected decision we made about our wedding. Until a few months before the big day, we wrote off the idea of videography all together. We didn’t think we could fit video into our budget, and we didn’t think anyone would watch it after the wedding anyway. But then I discovered Coastline and everything changed…
John’s friendly, caring personality and obvious passion for videography absolutely won me over. The sample films he showed me also swayed the decision — His finished films are MAGICAL! We ended up booking his Cinematic package, which included a jib, long trailer, and longer finished film.
Having Coastline with us on our wedding day was wonderful. A few things you should to know about what it’s like:
• The entire Coastline crew is FUN. These guys totally fit in with our family and friends and were friendly without being intrusive.
• The amount of equipment Coastline utilizes is ASTOUNDING. Yes, their services can seem pricey, but you should see the lighting, microphones, cameras, tripods, and other crazy stuff they bring to make your video look like a serious Hollywood movie. Your budget videographers definitely will not offer all this.
• ALL of the crew are PROFESSIONALS. The whole team discusses lighting, color balance, the best angles, and where to hide so you can’t see them (which I only know because John told me afterward, not because I noticed it on the day of). They also dress very professionally, including wearing khaki pants and black logoed polos on our 90+ degree July day (yikes!).
• They are COMMITTED. Mother Nature made our wedding day a little crazy. Coastline was flexible and kept rolling through it all to ensure our film reflected our whole day.
As for the finished product, I am almost speechless. Our trailer and wedding film are authentic, beautiful, emotional, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The colors are vibrant. The music is perfect. Our families and friends absolutely loved watching it and have asked to watch multiple times.
To sum it up, here are a few words from the email I sent John after it all: “I feel as though you read my mind as to what I hoped to share about the day… I know our wedding and its videography presented some unusual challenges, but you all seized them and were not at all put off by the extra effort required to present our story. You are each truly special and we appreciate your obvious dedication to your craft.”
