We could not be happier with our decision to work with Windy City Production! I was in a panic to find a photographer with only a few months until the wedding...We were planning our wedding from Los Angeles, which only added to the panic! After a random google search, I came across Windy City Production and left a message explaining what I was looking for. Katie and Sam promptly called the following morning and immediately upon talking to them, I felt at ease and excited to work with them.

We were planning on just playing an iPod for dancing because we were on a budget...but when Sam explained the Brides' Bundle that they offer, which combines the photography with DJ services, I was sold! He told me to discuss it with my then, fiancé and give it the night to think it over, so I wasn't jumping into something we weren't comfortable with. This is part of why I love them!

So, we decided to go with both services and we are SO happy we did! They were professional, friendly, and great with communication. I was understandably scattered leading up to the big day and they were great with checking in to make sure we were on track with everything we wanted.

Katie was AWESOME the day of our wedding! She instantly made everyone feel comfortable and came up with some great poses for the wedding party pictures. During the ceremony and reception, she was on top of everything. And because she and the DJ were working together, she would help communicate things with him to make everything run smoothly...After the wedding, our family and friends kept saying how Katie was amazing! So nice and not intrusive while getting her shots etc.

We got to see a sample of the photos in a slide show and we couldn't be happier with the quality, style and variety of the shots! She really captured the personality and vibe of the whole day!!!! We are so lucky to have stumbled upon this amazing husband and wife team and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check them out!!! :)

Katie Velasquez of Windy City Production is WONDERFUL! I highly recommend her! Where do I start? My family and friends and I just LOVED her! She was easy-going, kind, flexible and approachable. She came professionally dressed, too. Katie was always working so hard to get just the perfect picture, even if it meant standing on top of the edge of an iron railing in heels outside in the freezing cold night just to get a perfect shot of guests celebrating with cigars. Talk about dedication! She is super talented and during dinner, she put together a quick STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL montage of photos taken earlier in the day and displayed them on a TV screen for all of my guests to enjoy. It was the loveliest surprise! I couldn't be happier with her services! She is fantastic, look no further and hire the Best Photographer Ever!

Katie and Windy City Production was absolutely amazing throughout the entire planning process! I feel like I have known Katie (the owner) for years. That is how personable she is. You can tell that she really loves what she does.

Their prices are great for what you get. Every detail of our big day was captured in such a beautiful way. The videographers definitely know what they are doing, and are so professional!! Definitely a must have at your wedding!!! We will for sure recomend Windy City Production to others!

Exceptional quality and service! Windy City Production exceeded all of our expectations! I was referred to Katie and Sam by my best friend and Matron of Honor. I saw what great work they did producing her wedding video and could not think of anybody else I would trust to film our wedding day. Not only were they professional but also very personable and receptive to what we wanted in our final product. I HIGHLY recommend Windy City Production not only for the quality and service, but also for the value. I was blown away by how affordable they were and by the quick turnaround in getting our video to us. I am just so impressed with the final video!! I cannot stop watching it and am thrilled that they were able to catch all the little moments that I felt I missed in the chaos of the day. Even our guests agreed that they were extremely friendly and a pleasure to work with!

I waited a really long time to get a Videographer for my wedding. All the planning kept me so busy I completely forgot until about a month before my wedding! I really liked the video samples I saw on wedding wire but didn't hold my breath that they would be available. Much to my surprise, not only did Katie respond quickly and courteously but the whole team went out of their way to make sure they were there for us on our wedding day! Everyone kept talking about how nice our Videographer was, and how cool all the camera angles were. Windycity did an amazing job, they were professional and the end result was something truly amazing. I'm still blown away by how beautiful everything turned out, and our custom DVD cases are really cool too. I would definitely recommend WindyCity Productions.

Exceeded expectations!!!!!!! We (interviewed vendors at the bridal expo) and left feeling like there was nothing unique .. We ran across Windy City Production on the internet and liked the products online. After a few questions were answered and our first meeting, we knew we had chosen the right vendor.. We had no doubts with our decision.Nearly months after our wedding that people are watching the video, they have tears in their eyes. Truly, the moment was captured. Before you sign with other vendors, make sure you have given Windy City Production a chance to capture your special !

We used Windy City Productions for our wedding in August. Having a video of our wedding day was very important to us. The day goes by so fast and it is really hard to take in everything.

I can not even begin to explain how happy we were with the final product. They videographers, Kathy and Brianne, were so nice and professional, I forgot they were even in the room with us while capturing our big moments.
The trailer we got was breathe taking, it summed up the day perfectly. When we got the final copy of the full length video it really brought us back to our day, all the parts of the wedding you forget about are brought back to life. It is really amazing to be able to relive our wedding day.
I would recommend Windy City to any one!

Windy City Production did an exceptional job on our wedding video. We are so happy with the final video and have enjoyed sharing our wedding memories with family and friends! Katie did a great job throughout the process and we were so comfortable with her from the first meeting. She asked all the right questions to make sure that she was on the same page, we were glad to have booked her 5 months ahead of the wedding as we could communicate with her to provide updates. Windy City was very consistently responsive to emails and phone calls and was one of the easiest vendors we worked with throughout the planning process!!

During our wedding Katie was in all the right places at the right time to capture our special moments with our family. Our family noted how univasive our videographers were and yet they were able to capture everything. Our chapel (Bond Chapel at the University of Chicago) had little room on aisles and at the altar; Windy City did a great job capturing our entire cermony from a potentially challenging vantage point so that our guests' views were not interrupted and that we had video of our vows and walking down the aisle.

I would highly recommend Windy City for their professionalism, responsiveness, and creativity. The value you get get for the high quality video and presentation is phenomenal, we are so proud to share our wedding video and look forward to watching it in years to come! Katie and her team are very talented and we were honored to work with them!!

Katie and her assistant were amazing. My husband and I choose to have their full day package and the transaction was very simple and the price was right. Katie and her assistant did such a wonderful job on capturing every moment of our special day. Katie and I had few conversations before the big day and I explained to her what we wanted and she was spot on. Our video is amazing, the quality is great, the sound was very clear and the lighting was very good. Katie captured our ceremony, all the speeches and dances as we discussed. The decorations looked great in the video and everyone looked perfect. I am so glad we decided to have a wedding video and I am even more glad to have chosen Katie and Sam at Windy City productions. Thank you so much for making our special day even more special. I would definitely recommend them for any wedding or special event.

My husband and I went back and forth when deciding whether or not to book a videographer. He definitely wanted one, and I did too, but I wasn't willing to pay a crapload of money for one! When I came across Windy City Production, I immediately was impressed with how reasonable their prices were. I made the call to Katie and didn't look back. From the very beginning, it was obvious how professional this business is and how passionate they are about their work. They were willing to do whatever it took to make us happy, and let me just say, they completely exceeded our expectations!!! The first time we watched our wedding video, I went back and forth from holding back tears and laughing, but with a huge smile plastered on my face the whole time! Windy City caught all the little moments that I didn't see from our day. After it was finished, I looked at my husband and thanked him for encouraging me to find a videographer. I cannot say enough good things about Windy City-- don't be hesitant to book with them, because they truly will capture your day in a way that pictures just cannot do. Thank you Windy City Productions for doing such an incredible job!!!!

We used Windy City Productions for everything! My wife and I had a destination wedding in Costa Rica. They flew out with all of their own equipment and handled everything from photography to videography. They even went as far as bringing out all of the lighting we wanted but were unable to find at our remote wedding location. The minute they landed they were scouting the location for the best shots. The day of our wedding everything was perfect. That had already mapped out every shot. I have stood up in countless weddings. Nothing is more boring and time consuming than the pictures. They made it very simple and fun. We were done quicker than any wedding I was ever in. They got a ton of pictures. Unbelievable video. I would give them 6 stars if I could.

My parents hired Windy City Productions to do the videography for my wedding as a surprise. Originally, I thought a photographer was sufficient. I could not have been more wrong if I tried. I'm so happy my parents my parents hired Windy City. They did a beautiful job. If a picture says thousand words, Windy City's videography said a million. My wedding photos did not capture the true emotions that the videography did.

Our videographer was such a nice person, great about checking with us in case he had questions as well as taking directions on capturing what was important to us.

Katie and Sam did a wonderful job filming out wedding. They made sure to get all the important stuff but also managed to remain behind the scenes. I feel like I barely saw then but our video is amazing! We love it! We definitely recommend Katie and Sam!

Windy City Production does an EXCELLENT job! From the moment we met Sam and Katie, my husband and I had to hire them for our wedding.
My husband didn't even want a videographer at the wedding because it was just an extra expense, (he's a cheap accountant!), but he is SO glad that we did!

They are both very classy individuals who are very passionate about their work. Our wedding video makes me cry every time I watch it! That was without a doubt, one of the best days of my life, and I can relive every second of it any time I want to, thanks to Sam and Katie!

They are both very easy to get along with. We would highly recommend Windy City Production for any event. Not only do they provide quality work, but they offer very affordable packages. Excellent customer service! (We got our wedding video back before our pictures!)

Sam and Katie, thank you again for making our day so incredibly special! It meant so much to us, our family and our friends!

I cannot expres how in love I am with our wedding trailor! My husband and I havent watched our video yet (we're doing so tonight) but event just the little bit that I've seen... I know that we made the RIGHT choice by 1. buying a wedding vi...deo and 2. using Windy City Production! WCP was by far the most reasonably priced videography company that we looked into, with the BEST work! It was worth evey penny and I would spend the money all over again! Katie and Sam were the best and I am so pleased to have had them in our lives on such a huge day! They were so professional and kind at the same time. A great couple to work with!!! At my meeting today to pick up the video, I told Kaite there were numerous photos that she captured that I didnt event know she was there for! Sam and Katie were always in the background, but also captured some of our biggest moments right up close! I am so impressed... I had chills and tears just watching the little bit that I've seen today... THANK YOU Katie and Sam! .... If you are looking for videographers, please look at Windy City Productions, I guarentee you will be happy that you did!

When I first found them online, I called them multiple times many days in a row to get a hold of them. Finally after months of phone tagging I got to speak with Katie. I was very glad I had been persistent in contacting them because we seriously found great photographers, videographers and DJs.

From beginning to end, working with Windy production team was a wonderful experience! The bridal package with full day coverage turned out perfectly, especially with an unbeatable price. We had two wedding ceremonies and a reception all in one day with two different cultures of audience. Prior to the event, I was a little concerned about the music at the party and if the photographers would understand what to capture in both ceremonies. However, they vastly exceeded our high expectations and truly captured every moment of our wedding journey from both of our ceremony photos (Hindu and Catholic) to our reception photos.Katie and Sam are the absolute best! I can't wait to work with them again!

Windy City went above and beyond... I was nervous about choosing a videographer and wasn't even sure if I needed a video.. but I am SO glad that I chose to get one. I was really trying to be budget conscious and when I looked into vendors I was shocked at how much videography could be! But Windy City was a fantastic value!! They were finished with our video within 4 weeks!! It was beautifully edited so we can relive our big day over and over.. as I was watching the video my cheeks hurt from smiling so much!!

From the beginning, Katie and Sam were really easy to work with. Katie was always quick to return emails/phone calls. We never had to worry about our videography. The only responsiveness issue we had was that our video arrived about a week later than originally stated. Having said that, the video was great, especially for the price! All the special moments were captured that we will look back on to relive our beautiful day. Mike and I decided later in our planning to hire a videographer and we're so glad we hired Windy City. We recommend them to anyone!

Dear Amanda:

We are thrilled to hear that you loved your wedding video. However, we are a bit disappointed to hear that we let you down considering we finished your video within 26 days, which is a very fast turn around time. We also went above and beyond in creating your wedding day trailer, which was not originally included in your contract. You should have certainly received your DVD sooner but being that we shipped it out the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend it postponed the delivery by an additional day. We certainly appreciate your feedback and I want to personally wish both you & Mike the best of luck.

I think the quality of the video and photos were excellent! Although I was sadded to learn the raw video was available after it was deleted. I would have liked to have the raw video as well. It wasnt until after I took my video and inquired about the raw footage that I was told it was available for an extra 100 but then was told all my footage was deleted after I took possession of my video. Other than that I had no issues with quality or service.

Windy City Production responded with the following comments:

Dear Theresa:

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed both your wedding video & all of your wedding photos. Also, we understand you disappointment of not having your raw footage. However, with your custom package you had specifically not selected the raw footage option. At your closing meeting we ensured that you were completely satisfied with your video & photo's. The following week after you had signed off on your satisfaction you had contacted us about the possibility of getting your raw footage. We had explained to you that with the amount of weddings we cover we always delete all of the raw footage right after the client is satisfied with their product. It is impractical to save everyones raw footage just incase they change their mind about an option that is generally selected during the contract phase. We are also committed to ethical business practice and that means we will not try to up-sell you or nickel and dime you for additional options that you don't want. I am sure you will forever enjoy your priceless wedding video & wedding photos.

Sincerely,

Katie

Katie and Sam are a pleasure to work with. They were ready for us when we arrived, and felt like our friends the entire evening. An affordable option made this an easy choice. They are quick to respond to any questions, and really helped in capturing our big day.

After sending my signed contract and deposit to Katie, I received no communication and I had to email her to see if she had received the signed paperwork and payment. After receiving a BS email that her email must have gone to SPAM, I received no further communication. I initiated two more emails and then received this today, three months before my wedding:

This is the worst experience I have had with a vendor or company period. I would be very careful when picking this company, because obviously your big day is not a priority to them. Katie is rude and does not deserve any new clients. Every other vendor I have has reached out to make appointments and due to me asking two questions and stating my concerns, Katie was not able to follow through with her part of the deal.

Windy City Production responded with the following comments:

Windy City Production has not and refuses to provide any services to this particular reviewer based on their unrealistic expectations and overall disrespect towards our company & team members. We will let the countless great reviews from actual clients who have worked with us and our industry leading satisfaction guarantee policy speak on behalf of our company’s quality standards. It is certainly a shame that this reviewer has maliciously tried to attack a company who has and will continue to provide the best video reproduction for all of its clients. Our company is purposely driven with our live loud initiative, dedicated to a high degree of quality with our satisfaction guarantee policy, and understandably unwilling to work with potential clients who email us messages stating “I hope that your business fails.” Yes the audacity of this particular reviewer is definitely unbelievable. We understand that you are disappointed because we have refused to take you on as a client, but purposely trying to defame our company is uncalled for. However, as unrealistic and disrespectful as this potential client has been we have and will continue to wish them the best of luck considering they will definitely need it if they plan on finding anyone willing to play a part in their wedding day.
