This company was AWFUL to work with. They took my deposit and then when I tried to get ahold of them about details closer to my wedding they did not return my multiple call voice messages, and e-mail. My fiancee had to go over to their office only to find that everything was packed up. We got in contact with 1 person from the office finally, they said they would call us back with details for our wedding. We never heard from them again. We had to get another videographer (which actually worked out great) but we still never got our deposit or even a phone call from this company. DO NOT USE THEM!

HORRIBLE!!! I don't know what happened between the time I booked last year (went to the studio and watched sample videos) and then time when they filmed my wedding!! I paid a lot of money to hire what was, in my opinion, the best videographer I could find. My wedding was two months ago and I have had ZERO communication with anyone from the studio. I have emailed several times with no response. I have called and left several voicemails with no response. I just tried to go to their website (which I had been on several times last year) and was redirected to "this website is temporarily unavailable". This whole experience feels, at best, highly unprofessional, and at worst, super sketchy. What the heck is going on -- I just want my wedding video!!!!

Anyone who may have knowledge of where Martin Gruber is, please post it here or reach out to me directly at mlregina@msn.com Myself along with a multitude of other couples are missing their wedding videos from the past year. We are talking about dozens of weddings, tens of thousands of dollars lost, and no recourse to have one of the most important days of our lives preserved. Please Please reach out to me or any of the other people listed here with the same issue. We are also trying to collect as many names as possible so we can combine our resources in hopes of finding and securing our videos.

Erin and Dia were great to work with! They were down to earth and put as right at ease the moment they arrived. Even before the wedding, Erin was great, taking the time to call me to get an idea for the flow the day of and answering any questions that I had. I didn't want any day of surprises.

We never had to re-shoot scenes, we wanted everything to be natural. They weren't obtrusive during the ceremony or reception and once everything got started, I didn't even realize they were there, which is exactly what I wanted.

I would highly recommend Blue Sky Films!

Be aware that something has gone very wrong at Blue Sky Films - after the Channel 4 news story that they have not been able to provide 2 brides with their wedding footage, my wedding planner began investigating. The videographers do exist and shoot good film - but then they drop the film at Blue Sky for editing, and that's where it all goes wrong. Blue Sky says they are experiencing heavy delays....but over a year later some brides don't have their videos. We have not been able to get through to Blue Sky about my contract - they are not answering phonecalls or emails. The contract clearly states that Blue Sky can delay in producing the film - and they don't give a time limit. If we cancel, based on current feedback, I lose 75% of my money...I'd be very wary of hiring Blue Sky.

This company is a sham. Dia Hancock shot my wedding on 10/18/14, and have still not received my wedding video. All I want is the footage at this point. We paid them a portion of the fee upfront, then tipped Dia and her colleague the day-of the wedding. I received a followup email from her right after (while we were on our honeymoon), and that was the last time I ever heard from her! They are a complete disaster of a company! Stay away!

*****DO NOT HIRE! They are a complete scam. There are many people that had their videos taken and then no communication from the company! These people are scums of the earth. We are perusing legal action against the company to get our video.

A word of caution to brides: DO NOT HIRE BLUE SKY FILMS!!!!! I signed a contract for them for my September 2014 wedding. After the wedding, my videographer (Dia Hancock) told me there was a 4-6 month wait for the video. In March, I was told it would be ready in April. In April, I was told May. In May, I was told that I was "next in the queue." When I tried to follow up last week, I got a bounce back email from Dia. I figured she left the company so I called the main phone number. The phone rang and rang and rang. I couldn't leave a voicemail for anyone because the mailboxes were full. I tried emailing every address I had for them. Nothing. I went to find their Facebook page. It's deleted. I went to their offices and there's a sign on the door prompting people to call David (the brother of the owner, Martin Andrews). I've called and emailed him and got zero response. A man who shares office space with Blue Sky told me they are in the process of moving out and has no way to get in touch with them. He showed me a room where they were storing their equipment. It looked like a scene from "Hoarders" - boxes filled with equipment haphazardly strewn about and tangles of wires. I have no idea if the videos are underneath the pile of mess. And I have no idea if my footage still exists, or if it's lost or damaged. I never expected to be in this situation given that I thought Blue Sky was a reputable company. They got amazing reviews on WeddingWire when I booked them. It's as if they completely disappeared - with 75% of their fee! I know I'm not alone; the man at the office told me he gets about 6-10 angry women a week looking for Blue Sky. I spoke to another client who got married in March 2014 and they STILL don't have their video, either. At this point, I am just desperate to get my raw footage. I just want my memories. I want to watch my dad's speech and be able to see me reciting my vows to my husband. I have no idea if I'll ever see that again.

DO NOT HIRE! I repeat, DO NOT HIRE! The owner/partner went their separate ways in 2015 and the company's quality DROPPED OFF. I've been married OVER 1 YEAR and STILL DO NOT HAVE MY VIDEO!!!!! The contract stated I should have my video 10-26 WEEKS after submitting my music selection...26 weeks put me at May 2015. June rolled around and I heard NOTHING. I followed up SEVERAL TIMES and had no returned phone calls or emails. I finally reached someone who told me they had layoffs and my video was in the queue to begin editing in June in which case it would take 2 weeks to finish. Mid June through August we bombarded them with inquires and threats of bad reviews/legal action. August I received an email to confirm music selection and it would take 40-60 editing hours. Its October and I have NO VIDEO/no update from them and our lawyer has left 3 unreturned messages with them. DO NOT HIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
