REVIEWS

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! They were really amazing!!!! Jason and Melissa Wallahora

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!!!!!"

Out of all the different vendors we were working with for our big day, Sigh & Jay R were our absolute favorites. With all the craziness in planning for a wedding and the day of, they had quintessentially set the bar of standards in which we had ended up comparing to all the other vendors we had dealt with. True professional in all sense, very prompt in their responses to emails/phone calls and how they dealt with their clients making you feel that like you had nothing to worry about when it came to them.

Our wedding day was a long day for everybody as the church ceremony in the late morning and the evening reception created such a huge gap, but Sigh & Jay R kept their attention to details and energetic yet easy going nature from the beginning to the very end. There were times we had wished Jay R & Sigh could have been our photographer too as they had continued to bring up different ideas with their vision and creativity to get a good shot when our photographer failed to do so. After the wedding we had high hopes waiting to get a glimpse of our wedding day through their eyes and without fail they had delivered with what we had seen through the wedding video recap.

Surprisingly I was more poised than I thought I would have been during the wedding day and didn’t shed a tear despite all the high emotions, but Sigh & Jay R had tears streaming down my face when watching the beautiful video recap. We can’t wait to see the full wedding video & highly recommend them to everybody!

"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...."
