We are so glad that we chose Black Tie Video! Mike did an exceptional job shooting our wedding day. We even did the "Same Day Edit" and showed it prior to us being announced in the ballroom and I can't tell you how amazed everyone was with that special touch. I have never seen so many happy tears in my life. I love that we can always relive our special day. Priceless!

Black Tie was truly amazing. Our videographer, Chris, was the warmest, nicest, and all around best guy. They did a FABULOUS job on our video and we could not be any happier - I will be watching this over and over again. Whoever thinks they should pass on a videographer is out of their mind - 100% worth it!!!!

Everyone said they had a blast at our wedding but the thing they will always remember will be the instant replay! Mike was so awesome and easy to work with! It was also nice to be able to share the replay on social media with our family and friends who were unable to make the wedding. I would absolutely recommend Black Tie Video to anyone!

Highly recommend Black Tie Video as your wedding videographer! Mike was friendly and easy to work with. We selected the Same Day Replay option (yes, an increase to our budget but TOTALLY worth it!) and Mike's work was excellent! We surprised all of our guests with this video and it is still being talked about! Everyone loved it! We also received the video link the day after our wedding so we could send this to our friends and family who were unable to attend our event, or others who wanted to view it again..and again and again! It was definitely worth the extra budget to do something surprising and special for our families and guests! I would highly recommend Black Tie Video to any bride/groom looking for the perfect videographer for their special day!

We loved working with Black Tie Video!! We would definitely recommend using them! Our guests were completely surprised when right after dinner a flashback video started playing-- showing photos of my husband and I when were kids, and then during our relationship, and then cutting to the actual day of the wedding. It was amazing-- one of the best parts of our wedding!!

My videographer Brian was the best, he was professional and made the day so special with his talent. I chose to do the "Instant Replay" (which is a must have) He created it that in minutes and it was my favorite thing that I had at my wedding. Everyone loved the video and it had a great personal touch! I cant wait to see my complete wedding video.

I recently had my wedding on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at the Ipswich Country Club. I hired Black Tie Videography in North Reading and I could not be happier. Chris was our videographer and was FANTASTIC. I was a little bit of a nervous bride and kept getting his name wrong when we initially met but fortunately he didn't seem to mind at all. LOL! I was not really into being interviewed on our wedding day and just wanted him to capture our day. He indeed did that and was able to capture the day as it happened without anything being rehearsed. Chris was around us the whole time and didn't miss a trick but I didn't notice a camera being in my face at all. It was great because that is all that my husband and I really wanted. I could not be happier with his professionalism and friendly vibe. It was key and helping our day run smoothly. Thanks so much Black Tie Video and CHRIS, I promise I will never forget who captured our wedding day on film. LOL!

All I have to say is AMAZING! Mike and the entire Black Tie team do amazing work! I hired Black Tie for our wedding videography. They offer an amazing service called "Instant Replay". Before we were introduced into the venue, an 8 minute clip was shown to guests that had pictures of us growing up as well as a re-cap of bride getting ready/ceremony played at the reception site. Mike captured every detail and every important moment leaving us with a DVD full of amazing memories to cherish forever. I highly recommend Black Tie as they do amazing work and the end product is perfection. They work with you to customize the right package and to ensure it fits your budget! Thank you Mike and team for a job well done!!!

I don’t even know where to begin with how happy my husband and I were/are with all of Black Tie Video's services. Brian, our videographer, was AMAZING!! He truly made our night. They really have an irreplaceable employee within their company. He went above and beyond his job by making sure my husband and I were relaxed, calm, and enjoying ourselves.

The instant replay was talked about by every single guest at our 10/1/11 wedding, even from the wait staff. The instant re-play is a MUST! We watched it play from a window and saw every single guest crying! It was great that we were given our re-play at the end of the night to bring home with us and watch on our honeymoon. It came out even better than we had imagined.

Meredith the office manager is wonderful and was wonderful to work with. They were extremely respectful and flexible with our budget and created a package for us that worked for us. I would recommend this company to everyone!!

Black Tie Video was amazing to work with! They produce a wonderful product that provides memories for years. Mike was professional, attentive, remembered details from a meeting he and my family had with him over a year before, and was a pleasure to work with. I received my preview edit of the video promptly and my husband and I loved every minute of it! I also can't say enough about Meredith, his assistant. She was very informative and helpful with brainstorming ideas for our instant replay, which was played right before our introduction into the reception.

I highly recommend Black Tie Video.

Mike is an amazing videographer. I cannot recommend Black Tie Video highly enough. He is fun to work with, but more importantly, he is extremely talented.

Our instant replay video introduced us the reception and it blew all of the guests away! It brought tears to the eyes, and was remarkably moving and fun to watch. I cannot wait to see what his creative editing will do for our final wedding video considering that he created the instant replay in less than an hour!

When speaking to guests after the wedding, one of the first things they bring up is how amazing our video was.

If you are thinking about hiring Black Tie studios, I promise you will NOT be disappointed.

We first found Mike of Black tie Video at a friend's wedding when we were blown away by the "instant replay." We used instant replay at our where the picture montage is mixed in with video clips of that very day! For instance getting ready, a message from each of us to each other, parts of the ceremony etc. It is completely a wow factor! Everyone at our wedding could not believe what they are watching. During cocktail hour Mike edits the video together. He is outstanding and talk about talented!

Mike did a great job. He was flexible. We only had him for 7 hours (ya, only right?) but by the time the parent dances and hora was around, and 7 hours had already passed; there wasn�t a question- he was staying and we would deal with the extra cost later. My father and I really appreciated it. He showed up on time and was easy to work with.

We regret that we have to write this poor review having had high expectations for Black Tie Video. We contracted with BTV to provide services for a complete video of our ceremony. We gave the owner very specific instructions about what we wanted including where to stand in the chapel, when to turn the groom's mike on/off, to be as non-instrusive of our guests as possible, and not to go on the altar (it is prohibited by the church and we wanted to respect the sacredness of this religious space). However, the videographer did not abide by these agreements (which we had made with the owner well in advance of the wedding).

The footage we received was high quality, yet it missed key parts of the ceremony, including the blessing of the rings, several hymns, and prayers. The videographer also walked onto the altar during our vows, disrespecting not only a sacred space but our wishes. Finally, we had asked that the videographer stand in one place, yet he moved throughout the service, including asking ONE OF OUR PARENTS to move from the aisle so he could shoot the procession.

When we received the video, it included voice feed from the groom's mike throughout the second half of the service. We explained our situation to the owner who responded with a new video without the voice feed. Because there was no complete footage of the ceremony, he was never able to provide us with a complete video, as we had contracted.

Black Tie Video responded with the following comments:

We at Black Tie Video pride ourselves on being non-intrusive and professional, we are sorry you had a poor experience. Our cameraman was asked to stay in one spot during the entire ceremony, which was not at a good angle and made the decision to move in order to capture your vows and ceremony. We had agreed on the location with the note that we usually aren’t completely stationary but will make sure to stay out of the way. The cameraman moved on two occasions to get a better angle of the two of you.

We have apologized and again are extremely sorry that he stepped on the altar. He probably should not have stepped onto the corner of the alter during the vows, but this is a decision we leave up to the camera operator as events unfold. Our job is to obtain the best possible images/angles as possible, without being obtrusive. We did not hear of this complaint until after you saw the video, thus I'm assuming that the cameraman was not obtrusive.

The cameraman recorded 99% of the ceremony only stopping the camera during his brief movements. As for the groom's mic, you stated that you did not want the mic on prior to the ceremony started, which is what we did. We were instructed to turn the mic on once the processional stared. We also sent you an additional copy of the wedding ceremony without the grooms voice feed to apologize. We feel you have received what we were contracted for. Again our apologies for your disappointment.
