I contacted Mirar Productions after finding them through googling videographers for our Chicago wedding (July 2014). I'd contacted many other companies before, but I chose Mirar Productions because I especially liked how responsive and flexible Philipe was when I first talked to him. As Philipe had another wedding to video that day, he had another team of videographers, Josel and Carlos, who were available for our day. I was hesitant at first as I initially contacted Mirar Productions wanting Philipe to video our day, however Philipe assured me that Josel and Carlos have plenty of experience and that Philipe would work on putting the footage together for the 10 minute video (in addition to all the footage) we requested. Josel and Carlos were wonderful and got excellent footage - we received the 10 minute video very quickly after (about five weeks!!). Working with Philipe, Josel and Carlos was a such a pleasure and the video is very well put together, the music goes perfectly with it, and is very creative - it's exactly what I wanted.

My husband and I were not originally planning to have videography at our wedding. Thanks to a family friend and a surprise gift from our parents, we were connected with Philipe. He was very responsive and flexible as we were planning our wedding from many states away, and we appreciated being able to email and Skype to coordinate all the details. We felt that we were in prepared, professional hands leading up to the big day. We were surprised with a pop-up thunderstorm the day of the wedding and had to move inside at the last minute - Philipe and his team captured everything perfectly despite the change of plans! We have so many striking and special moments captured on film thanks to Mirar Productions. The word my family uses to describe it is "magical." I cannot believe we almost missed out on this - the love and joy that we feel from watching the end result will stay with us for all time.

Philipe did an INCREDIBLE job with our wedding video! Everyone has said how much they love it! I searched long and hard to find something affordable that also looks modern and professional and Philipe met those expectations and more. Our ceremony was very short and informal and didn't match the typical schedule that most weddings follow so Philipe was flexible on pricing to reflect that which allowed us to stay within our budget. Philipe was friendly, professional, prompt, responsive, and very helpful. He clearly knows what he's doing and isn't intrusive during the big day. We held our reception 6 weeks after the ceremony and he promised (and met his promise) to get us a copy of the video and the highlight video by then so we could show it. The cases that the DVD's/BluRay's come in are very nice black leather material with a wedding picture on front and on the disc itself. I didn't expect something more extravagant than a disc in a plastic sleeve so it was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend Mirar to anyone I know looking for a videographer! We really have only good things to say! Thanks guys!

My husband and I held our ceremony and reception a week apart in different states, and we hired Mirar Productions to document the latter. Working with Philipe was nothing short of a dream. He was extremely responsive and kept us updated without us even asking. His contract was straightforward, and he and his assistant were unobtrusive on the day of the reception, but still captured great footage. What impressed us most, however, was how quickly Philipe got us the finished product. He was the first of all our vendors to get any product back to us! And we love, love, love the highlight reel he edited—he did an amazing job and the song he chose went along perfectly with the pace of the video. We can’t stop watching it! The packaging of the DVDs he sent us was beautiful as well; they can certainly be used for display. We would definitely recommend using Mirar!

My husband and I worked with Mirar Production for our wedding and LOVED them!!! Philipe is the owner and is incredibly awesome! I cannot say enough good things about him, his team and their work! I am SOOO happy that we used them and I would recommend them 100x over! We got a recap video and an edited video of the whole day from getting ready to ceremony & reception! It was nice to see that because neither of us were able to experience everything so we got a nice glimpse into each other's day leading up to the ceremony! I would highly recommend Philipe & Mirar! Philipe was extremely responsive and flexible to work with our needs both leading up to our wedding, the day of our wedding and even after! They are the best!

I can't say enough good things about Philipe and his team at Mirar Productions.

They were prompt in correspondence before he wedding, very polite and incredibly accommodating. Their service was a gift from my aunt and uncle and they were mindful of pricing and package because of this.

On the big day, Jose and Carlos arrived slightly before schedule and got started immediately. They certainly did not wait for any direction- true professionals.

They captured all of the best parts of getting ready, the ceremony and reception. They never seemed obtrusive at anytime and moved around quickly.

The video Mirar Productions produced is absolutely incredible. So much so, that two of my bridesmaids booked them for their weddings in a few months!

I'd highly recommend this vendor!

After extensive research, we selected Mirar Productions for our October wedding in Chicago (their current location). From the beginning, Philipe was so great to work with. Compared to other videographers, Mirar's pricing is competitive and the quality of work is amazing.

If you are thinking of not hiring a videographer because of pricing, think again. It's so worth it! Years from now, you'll be able to look back and relive these precious moments.

We provided a day of timeline and walked through our church and reception. Philipe also took the time to visit our ceremony and reception site prior to our wedding day. On the day of, we had two videographers and never felt that they were invading our space.

We recently received our recap video and absolutely loved it! They were able to capture our vows (my husband had a mic on), our friends and family and family enjoying themselves and many other moments that we missed. We also just received our edited 60-90 minute video and love it!

I would certainly recommend Mirar Productions for wedding videography.

Philipe & his team are fantastic! Truly talented and super attentive. From the beginning, Philipe worked with me on customizing a package that worked for us. Like many people, we waited until the last minute to book a Videographer and our budget was compromised at that point. No problem for Mirar Productions! They are flexible and work within your budget. They are very responsive to emails, questions, day-of, etc. And the finished product will blow you away! Our video brings me to tears...going with Mirar Productions was one of the best wedding decisions we made. So thankful for Philipe & his team! I would highly recommend!

Mirar was amazing! We found him just a few weeks before the wedding because I had been on the fence about paying for a videographer. Do yourself a favor and BOOK HIM. He is not cheesy at all and his documentary experience really comes through in his wedding videos. He did a wonderful job of being completely unobtrusive while still capturing the essence of our day. I am incredibly grateful that we were able to book Philippe!

If you plan on having only 1 wedding in your life (which most of us do) then why wouldn't you want every precious moment captured on video? Furthermore, wouldn't you also want the best quality video for your once in a lifetime event? This was the first thing on my mind when I began my search for vendors one year ago. If your concerned with your budget that's perfectly understandable...so was I. However, I was able to keep my costs down by putting my money where it really mattered. For me, pictures and video were at the top of my list. I want to remember and relive every second of that perfect day. I began my search looking for professionals in the area of my venue (a beautiful greenhouse in Pacifica, Ca.) I stumbled upon Mirar Productions and found Philipe Carvalho to be very nice and willing to work with my budget. He was always available to talk to with any question I had and replied back to emails the same day! His work is outstanding! I couldn't have had a better experience with this company. Thank you Philipe for all the hard work you have put into our video!! You captured the magic of our wedding which I will be able to relive over and over again with family and friends (especially those who couldn't attend) for years to come!

Philipe Carvalho was the most amazing videographer to work with. I have never met anyone so amazing with getting back to emails and being so accommodating throughout the whole process. He really worked with my budget and literately made me feel like I was his only client with his responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility. He even made a special trip to see my venues before the day - which took a lot of time out of his day. He also has a wonderful personality that makes you feel so comfortable on the big day. He is creative and sees things that most would just look over. The way he told the story was beautiful!

The final product was better than I could have dreamed of. He worked with me and all of my special requests and created something that means so much to us that we can have forever. I would reccomend Philipe to any of my friends getting married. You will have an amazing experience and LOVE the final video.

Philipe and his team are incredible! What's great is that you barely even know they are there yet they seem to capture everything! I recently received my highlight reel, and it was just so beautifully done. You could tell there was a lot of thought and care put into it. For us, videography was an added expense that we considered cutting but I am SO happy we decided to go with it and that we decided to go with Mirar!

Mirar Productions captured it all! Our day was hectic from beginning to end and I felt like it was over in a blink of an eye. Thanks to Philipe and Mirar we have the entire day permanently recorded and couldn't be more thankful! From first contact Mirar Productions was very easy to work with and super speedy with getting back to me. Everything was tailored to exactly what we wanted all for the budget we set forth. Philipe was even able to suggest moving the times around in order to capture the most important parts of the day! Mirar got us our Recap Video very quickly and finished our full-length film in no time! We even partied later than agreed upon and Mirar was fine with filming the chaos a little longer. We had an amazing time and are so thankful for the beautiful work Mirar did to capture every facial expression. The finished products were beautifully paired with music while still allowing actual conversation come through. The editing and angles were gorgeous. I think i've watched the recap 100 times just to relive the day. If you need a videographer, go with Mirar Productions, they are incredible!

The finished products were beautifully paired with music while still allowing actual conversation come through. The editing and angles were gorgeous. I think i've watched the recap 100 times just to relive the day. If you need a videographer, go with Mirar Productions, they are incredible! Read less

I used Mirar Productions for my wedding on June 7, 2013 and I can honestly say that their professionalism and quality of work truly made our day unforgettable. Philipe was so easy to work with, quick with responses and actually listened to what I wanted for my Wedding day. I am so happy with the work we have received back from Mirar Productions and have had SO MANY people comment on how amazing our video clip is. I am happy to refer Mirar Productions to ANYONE looking for a reliable and flexible company to film your Wedding!

Philipe was everything we hoped for. Both my husband and I are camera shy and we were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to be ourselves on such an action packed day. Philipe caught everyone's quirks and laughs and portrayed how much fun the day was in both the short video and the long. Couldn't be happier with the result and have already recommended his services to friends and family!

Philipe at Mirar Productions is AMAZING! He was very friendly, easy to be around (important since he's there all day!), and produced an incredible wedding video for us! The video brings us to tears every time we watch it - he did an excellent job of capturing the important moments of our day. My requests were a little out of the ordinary because we did a video guestbook in addition to the standard video coverage - Philipe listened to what we wanted and delivered! If you have special requests or ideas - talk to him! He is very flexible and will deliver you exactly what you want! Book him NOW!! :-)

I had the pleasure of working with Philipe for a wedding I planned on April 20th. Throughout the whole process, Philipe was quick with responses from the beginning and was such a delight to talk to! Philipe and his assistant were on time and followed the timeline provided. They made sure to capture every moment and created a wonderful product at the end. The Bride and Groom were very happy with their wedding video! I would definitely work with Philipe and his team again. He is such a delight!

I have nothing but praise for the Mirar Productions team. I struggled for weeks to find a creative and professional videographer within my budget but after my first meeting with Philipe and Eduardo, I knew I'd found a great fit. They captured all the elements of my Pakistani wedding and added creative touches that were artistic, not trendy or over the top. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Philipe and I were in frequent email contact, finalizing our timelines and other details. Going into the wedding events, I felt confident that my video would be taken care of. I am happy to say that my initials feelings about Mirar Productions were confirmed when I saw my beautiful, professional and creative wedding video. Thank you, Philipe and team!

Very Professional, very polite, very understanding on the needs that we wanted on our wedding day and how we wanted to capture certain moments. I was very thrilled to meet Philipe and his staff, they were wonderful people. Always on time and respectful to our guests.

Our final product was AMAZING!!! The blue ray DVDs were great, and we were beyond satisfied with his work and his staffs work. I would definently recommend Mirar Productions!!!

Philipe and his assistant from Mirar Productions were amazing to work with. We met with Philipe a couple of times leading up to our wedding and after seeing his portfolio, we hired him.

He was very responsive, and professional and was a great value for the price! He sent us a teaser video of our photo shoot while we were on our honeymoon and it is nothing short of perfect. He even chose a song that we love to set the video to - and I sent it to my friends and family... many said it made them cry! Aww ;)

One thing that was important to us is that he be there to capture the moments but not too in people's faces and honestly, I didn't even notices that two videographers were there! People tend to freeze up when videographers are around and they were so respectful of everyone's space.

Perfect - loved working with Mirar and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a videographer for their wedding or other events!

Our experience with Philipe was outstanding! He shot a "love story" for us that we showed at the dinner rehearsal before our wedding. Everyone came up to us afterward and said it was such a cool thing to share with everyone. It really made a big impression on our guests!

He was also there on our wedding day and shot such beautiful footage of the ceremony and reception. It is so much fun to re-live the moment and with Philipe there, he is sure to capture the very best moments you can cherish forever.

We highly recommend Philipe to be apart of your special day. He makes things comfortable, fun and his creativity is one of a kind. You will not be dissapointed with him!

Philipe and team did an amazing job at our wedding. We had a moderate sized Mexican wedding in the west loop on one of the hottest days in July. They did such a beautiful job capturing a perfect highlight video of our day - I replay it quite often and my husband reminds me to "click the video" (the opening to our highlight is his thank you speech to everyone where he talks about how thrilled and grateful he is to have me in his life) - beautiful flow throughout the video. All my family and friends adored it as well!

AMAZING is all I can say. Truly, they are artists and extremely responsive throughout the entire process. When I first booked Mirar, I felt a bit nervous as I knew much of Philipe's work had been based in San Francisco however I'm thrilled I moved forward because the end result was a beautiful keepsake set to our favorite songs and done impeccably well.

Thank you again for being a part of our very special day!

My sister gifted us an amazing photographer, so when I suggested hiring a videographer, my now-husband thought it was redundant, a bit silly, and definitely an added expense. I explained that while amazing photos can capture the essence of the day, the video would give you an opportunity to relive it and "taste" it. After many days of discussion, my fiance gave me the green light, and a budget.

I looked at many companies...some out of my budget, some not-so-good... some pretty great at a decent price. But I chose to work with Philipe because he was polite, quick to respond, and listened to all of my needs. Of all the vendors I've worked with, I have to say that Philipe's service was the best. I don't think I waited more than 12 hours to ever hear back from him. At one point, I believe we exchanged 10 emails within minutes.

On the day of the wedding, he arrived super early, and stayed later than i expected him to. He was professional, nice to everyone, and didn't tell me what to do/what not to do because he wanted to capture the day as it was unfolding. Philipe told me he would get a short clip out to me in weeks, and a few weeks later, I received a link to my short clip. I forwarded it to my husband, sister, and friends. They were all amazed how lovely it turned out! A few weeks later, I got the long video and I have to say, there were a couple of things I wanted to address, and Philipe completely understood and modified the clip accordingly. I love him for that! He was so easy to work with!

Best part of it all: My husband thanks me every single time he sees the video. He said it was worth every penny. Your wedding day goes by so quickly. I tried taking it all in, but days after, you forget the little stuff. It was the best decision to hire Mirar production for our wedding so that we can remember this day 10, 25, 50 years from now.

I highly recommend Mirar Productions. Philipe was awesome to work with! He was quick to respond to my emails and questions and very flexible and open to suggestions. At the wedding I barely even knew he was there, he was super stealth and never in the way of anyone's view. We ran a little late and he offered to stay a little longer than planned to get our first dance on video. He had a sneak peak video clip sent to us 3 days after the wedding, which was great since we weren't getting our pictures for 4-6 weeks! The final video was ready quickly as well. I would totally work with him again!

I cannot say enough great things about Mirar Productions and Philipe! My husband and I got married two years ago in Mexico and we used local vendors there that gave us 4 mini tapes of raw footage after the wedding. I was looking for someone to convert the footage and turn it into a great video! I met with Philipe just once and he was able to see my vision right away! He first converted the tapes for us to watch all 4 hours then he worked with me step by step to create a spectacular 7 minute recap of our day! He really went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the end result, while having to work with footage that he did not even shoot himself! Everything about the recap was perfect, down to the songs he chose! I recommend Philipe to anyone getting married who needs a great videographer and a fantastic editor!

I cannot write in words how strongly I recommend Philipe for anything videography related. I had a very specific custom video idea in mind for our save the date and sent Philipe TONS of type A/controlling scripts and edits and he NAILED it. Exceeded even my highest of expectations. The finished product is beyond spectacular. We had a fun time shooting with him- he has a great demeanor and felt like hanging out with a friend. He also has an impeccable eye for artistic and beautiful shots. He was reassuring and patient every step of the way, and I'm convinced he did not sleep until we had our finished video in hand- it was that quick. One of the best decisions we made in wedding planning. Thank you Philipe!

I particularly like his still and artistic/journalistic approach.

My recap video was FABULOUS! I received so many compliments.
On both recap and video he captured both of cultures in a very artistic, amusing way.
People who were unable to attend the wedding (family in Mexico and Argentina) felt like they were there.
