About this pro
It is exactly one day after working with Chicago wedding films and I just could not wait to leave a review. I am so happy that I chose John Zale to work with. John travelled all the way to Orlado from Chicago to document my daughters sweet 16 Celebration on 02/03/2018. Not only did he arrive any hour early, he was so helpful and courteous throughout the whole process. He pre interviewed my daughter who is extremely shy and walked her through the entire process. Throughout the celebration he was so creative and suggesting creative ideas that were so beneficial and worked great with the vision we were trying to capture and convey. He worked so well with the other vendors and everything went so well. Will update my review when I receive my final finishes project but I am more than certain that I will love the finishing product just based on his work ethic and personality. My daughter is so happy and I thank you so much for your work and your help yesterday. 🙌🙌🙌Feb 4, 2018Verified

Couldn't be more pleased with our videographer and his services. Shot all the important moments of our wedding day--from getting ready through the reception. The footage was fantastic and something we will cherish forever. Extremely professional and worked very well with our other vendors. Highly recommend Chicago Wedding Films.Jan 19, 2017John Z.'s reply
Thanks, Paul. You and Kate had a fantastic wedding in Green Bay, and I'm so privileged to have been able to capture all of the great memories for you.
