In all honesty, it is not worth the effort, stress and headache working with Blu Couture. You can certainly pay the same or less and get to work with a company that is more professional and more responsive. Advice: 1) READ the entire contract word for word and make sure you are ok with what you sign. 2) Know that their responsiveness will decrease once you sign the contract and once your wedding is over. 3) It takes up to 6 months to get your wedding video. 4) If customer's service is not too important to you then you should be fine. 5) They will give lots of excuses along the way. 6) They do not pick up the phone so don't even bother calling.
In my opinion, Blu Couture has the potential to do good work, they have examples of good work that they have done in the past but I don't know that they make it a priority to give the best service to their customers.

Save yourself the emotional distress. Look them up online (especially by other aliases - Marty Grusznis, Mandie Grusznis, Mandie Duplancich, Dreamscope...)
I was so captivated by their portfolio and the way they woo'd us befor the wedding... After we began making payments to them, their responsiveness dropped. Next thing you know, it's months of ignored calls, texts, emails, voicemails...
It's been over a year now and we still don't have final version of our videos.
Now we're forced to sue them and deal with all that mess.
I'm online looking them up and feel like crap because there's so many other people (recent too) having the same exact problem - they take money and run.

They've moved 3 times in the last few years and keep changing names and stuff.

We couldn't have asked for a more amazing experience working with Blu Couture Wedding Films to capture our big day! Mandie and Marty were incredibly enthusiastic throughout the whole process and really put a lot of effort into getting to know us before our wedding. The quality of their work was phenomenal and we were absolutely blown away by our wedding trailer and film! We are lucky to have made new friends in this process and would hands down recommend Blu Couture to anyone looking for wedding cinematography!

I can't tell you how impressed and happy my husband and I are with our wedding films from Blu Couture. We anxiously waited to see the finished products, and it was well worth it! The trailer we received is artistic, creative, beautifully shot and edited. I can't watch it without crying…happy tears of course. It's an incredible memory of the day and one that we will cherish forever. The documentary is beautifully shot and edited as well. I highly recommend Blu Couture to capture your wedding day and to recreate a beautiful story from your day. It truly is the best investment we made.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to share the experience you had with us, it's the greatest reward. . We get so attached to each of our couples and this means so much to us. I remember so closely the fine details of your event. How Ryan wanted to wear his cowboy boots and brought them just in case you'd let him get away with it. :) How in love he looked as you walked down the isle and how his whole family share a very similar expression. Your families amazing ability to write the most touching speeches, which I thought stemmed from your mothers back round in English. :) OK I don't want to ramble :) but so many details stand out...

We loved being apart of the creation of these films that came from such a tight knit and loving family.

Thank you dearly,

Blu Couture

Working with Mandie and Marty was an honor. They were so sweet and nice! Extremely talented and creative...that is obvious in their work. They were on time, kept in touch with me the entire time although they were busy traveling. We had 2 films made with them and the first one, they promised that we will have our SDE (Same Day Edit) by Christmas. They were home with their family and had slow connection, but they went out of their way to get to a place that had better connection just so we would have it as promised, by Christmas. All our families, friends and guest were SOO amazed by their films that they made for us. They have never seen such creativity and emotional films. They sent us the hard copy as promised. They even included snacks and goodies a long with the external disk and usb drive with our raw footage and videos. It was the most thoughtful thing. I dont give ratings, but I had to take time to give them what they deserve. If I can give them 10 stars, I would. I am not the type to boast about anyone unless they really deserve it. I am very picky. We highly recommend Blu Couture for their work and reasonable price. They are so pleasant to work with. Thanks, Marty and Mandie for being a part of our wedding day. You guys made our dreams come true. Many hugs.

My wife Sabrina and I got married in the Dominican Republic and had Marty and Mandie of Blu Couture Films join us to document the entire trip. They were extremely friendly, getting along with all of our family and friends, as well as professional in making sure to capture all of the special moments throughout the trip. We also had them prepare a love story for us that we watched together with our guests for the first time at the wedding. I can't begin to tell you how special a moment it was to share that with our guests and how truly great a job they did on the video. We loved it! Our wedding video turned out just as amazing with him taking advantage of the beaches and amazing backdrops. He even brought a mini helicopter that was able to capture truly breathtaking footage of the beaches. I could go on and on but truly an amazing company that knows what they're doing. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone and can honestly tell you that my wife and I walked away with not only an amazing film but friends that we couldn't have been happier to share our wedding with.

Blu Couture exceeded my expectations (and they were high to begin with)! There are a lot of options in this industry, but I would highly recommend this team to any friend or relative. In fact, I was introduced to BC by a friend. Right from the beginning of the process they were very communicative and were patient with me as I explored all the packages and they were great when it came to catering to our needs.

The day of the wedding they came in seamlessly and were fun and professional. My family and friends loved them, and it was easy to have them there in those intimate moments. They had a relaxing, upbeat presence. The day we received our movie was like having the celebration all over again, without any of the stress!

The movie came on a USB flash drive and was delivered with gourmet popcorn which my husband and I enjoyed that evening! We chose to have a documentary edit and cinematic highlight. Not sure how they knew which shots to use and when to use them but they picked out my most precious moments and we love our film so much. It's hard for me not to tear up. I really can't thank them enough. Keep up the good work Blu Couture and many thanks for helping us keep this memory alive.
