Transforming Moments into Masterpieces

Yours Truly Media was absolutely fantastic to work with! Due to COVID we had to change all of our plans last minute and we booked Yours Truly Media just 3 weeks before our wedding (in Chicago, IL). They were extremely responsive and made me feel like I could reach out with any questions (which I did!). Project Coordination was great to work with, they were very helpful both pre and post wedding. Our onsite team was also fantastic. They had their photographers corral our friends and family, and kept us moving on schedule. We received so many comments about how professional they were at the wedding. Our guests were impressed with their ability to capture all of our special moments. We received our photos and videos ahead of schedule, and we are so thrilled. Now for the difficult decision of which ones we want to print! Thank you Yours Truly Media for capturing our day so we can share with all of our guests that couldn’t be there in person with us on that day. We will treasure these photos and video for years to come
Highly recommend using Yours Truly Media!!! My husband and I work in the wedding industry locally in Chicago and we knew we wanted to have our big day captured on video so we could remember it. When trying to find a videographer, we came across YTM and let me just say we were absolutely blown away!! We had two videographers, Daniel and Brian! They were so friendly and down to earth!! They both worked seamlessly with our other vendors and make sure that our photographer was still able to capture all of their shots as well. Half the time, I didn't even notice that they were still there and they captured so many special moments from our big day that we're so excited to have. Everything from getting ready, to our first look, ceremony, introductions, toasts, dancing, mishaps and everything in between!! We absolutely loved getting our raw footage so we could see all the bloopers and have a good laugh now that all the stress and planning of the day is over. Additionally, the communication from YTM was flawless start to finish. They always responded within 24 hours and somebody was always available to answer any questions that you may have! We also got our wedding video back within 4 weeks! We were so excited to have it before the holidays to share with our family and friends! Shoutout to Daniel, Brian and the editors of our video who made it so special for us to relive our day. Thank you Yours Truly Media, for all of our wonderful memories!!
On our search for our videographer we watched hours of preview videos trying to find that something special we were looking for. When we came to Yours Truly Media we knew they were going to give us something that we would enjoy for the rest of our lives, and they delivered. From the moment they arrived at our venue they got started capturing all of the little, beautiful details. The team was reactive, attentive, and respectful. During the day, we hardly knew they were there. The results however, showed otherwise. They were everywhere, captured all of the special little moments, and took great care not to let any moment slip by. If you are on the fence about whether or not to include a videographer in your wedding, reach out to Yours Truly Media and let them explain their process. Choose them to capture the one of the best moments of your life; you will treasure it forever.
