I have been told one of the biggest regrets many new couples have post-wedding is not hiring a videographer. The cost to get married these days seems to come with a hefty price tag. Between the florist, photographer, venue, wedding dress, tux, stationary, and transportation, the thought of hiring a videographer was at the bottom of our priority list. Luckily for my fiancé and I, we met Michael Hook! Our journey began at the Pennsylvania Bridal & Wedding Expo back in January of 2018. Our parents were adamant we attend the expo even though we had all the vendors we wanted/needed (or so we thought). As we made our way through the crowd, a group of men called us over. They smoothly opened with a joke/compliment about my fiancé’s muscles (he’s a body builder). We were amazed at how easy going and personable Michael and his crew were! Their passion for film making was evident in their verbal and nonverbal body language. We were “hooked” by Michael Hook! From our initial encounter to months after our wedding, Michael was attentive, patient, professional, respectful, and flexible. I was the bride from HELL and was very demanding. I frequently changed our filming schedule and filled Michael’s inbox with at least 5 emails a week leading up to the big day. Michael always answered my calls, texts, or emails in a timely manner and knew how to reassure me when I was stressed! The day of my wedding, two important family members did not show up in time for my “getting ready” video/photos. I was on the verge of tears as I wanted my mom and sister there to share in this special moment. Michael was able to get me laughing and smiling through the hurt/ disappointment. At our wedding, he did a fantastic job directing my fiancé and I and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. What I love the most about Michael is the extra mile he went for us! We received our wedding video in less than 10 days!!! As if that was not good enough, Michael made custom DVDs with our picture on it that were placed thoughtfully inside a beautiful wooden box. He also included some sweet treats to munch on while we watched/relived our big day on our “big screen.” Michael captured our special day beautifully and brought all of us to tears!! I could not have asked for a better video of our day! Thank you!
Flagship Studios is amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the way that our wedding video turned out. First, the service provided throughout the wedding process was excellent. Mike was always responsive and helpful. Not to mention, Mike created an absolutely incredible, magical movie that brings not only us, but our family and friends to tears. It is such an amazing way to capture and relive our day. Flagship Studios went above and beyond and I highly recommend using them for your wedding!
We used Flagship Studios to capture our wedding day and they were amazing. Mike was so easy to work with and made sure everything was exactly the way I wanted it from the beginning with our meetings. Mike and Tommy did our wedding and they were SO fun, laid-back and absolutely amazing. They had us laughing and having the best time all day and when I got my videos I was in tears (happy tears). Everything was more perfect than I had imagined and I am so happy we chose them to capture our perfect day!
When hunting for the perfect videographer of course you look at the quality of the work, and the type of artistry used. Flagship Studios will give you high quality artistry in abundance. But in addition to their beautiful artistry, they also have such ease in their interactions with you, your other vendors and your guests. The flagship team intermingles themselves seamlessly into your wedding festivities- they are there capturing every detail and moment, but they are not in your face or in the way of the enjoyment of your guests. If you are lucky enough to book Flagship for your wedding, you are certainly in for a treat. They are genuinely excited to be part of your day. They will say or do almost anything to capture the emotion or simply ease the stress of morning prep.These guys truly know how to tell a story. We opted for a short wedding film for our package and the 5 min video they produced captured the magic of the day and brought those who watched it to tears. My husband and I are so grateful to have found these guys. Seriously stop looking and hire Flagship studios. It will be the easiest decision you make in your planning process.
Look no further for the perfect video team!My husband and I booked Michael and his team about a WEEK AND A HALF before our big day. We had been planning every last detail and at the last minute decided that we could not go without a video to share with everyone. As someone who had booked most of my vendors well over a year in advance, I was worried that we wouldn’t be able to find someone with the availability and expertise we knew that we wanted.From our first email to right now as we are discussing our video and its’ details, Mike has responded immediately and has been flexible with us and open to anything and everything we have requested. I met Mike the day of the wedding and by the end of the day he felt like a friend. He was there to capture every moment, some of them without us even realizing that he was there! He was kind to our family, great with our wedding guests, and went above and beyond for my husband and I the entire day and evening. You could tell that Mike had a vision for our video, and that artistic vision and talent has really come through in his work. I have watched hundreds and hundreds of wedding videos while planning our wedding and I can honestly say that Mike’s work is the best I have seen. While taking some evening pictures in the boathouse chapel of Mallard Island Yacht Club, Mike took the time to quickly show me some of the footage he had gotten. The footage was breathtaking and this small gesture left such an impact on me. The night of the wedding I was already able to get a glimpse into what our wedding video would look like and it was just so amazing to have someone who was so interactive with us. Then, as we were walking back to the reception, our photographer stopped us for a quick impromptu shot and Mike jumped right in [even though they were all set to head out] and got some additional footage. They didn’t want to miss a moment of our day because he knew how important the day was to us. It is not lost on Mike that this is the bride and groom’s “Best Day Ever”. We were not just another wedding, we were not just another gig, and I will forever be grateful to Mike for helping to make our day unforgettable.
There are no words that can express how grateful I am for Flagship studios. Mike and Tom were life savers on the day of my wedding and they made sure everything ran smoothly...despite all the chaos that was going on. Having a gif booth there was a total hit too, everyone loved it...and I got all the copies! Like I said, amazing company who will make sure your special day is beautiful!
I was there was an option for ten stars! Mike and Alyssa were INCREDIBLE! We got married in Long Beach Island, NJ in September and found Flagship Studios just by searching on The Knot for videographers around the Jersey Shore and I couldn’t be happier that we landed on this team. From our first phone call to the actual wedding day, Mike and his team were absolutely amazing! They were extremely professional, while also providing a relaxing and stress-free vibe that made them the perfect fit for us. They ensured that they captured the essence of the day and made us,along with our wedding party/guests, feel extremely comfortable while they were shooting throughout the day. The end product was OUTSTANDING. It was a movie of our day with incredible drone shots and beautiful footage of us and our loved ones. Everyone we have shows is blown away by the video and are still getting compliments to this day. As I told Mike after he showed us the preview video, I wish he could record my life!!
FlagShip Studios are the most talented and dedicated men in their craft in NJ!!! Mike and his team are so passionate about each moment they observe through their lenses!! Our video’s came out flawless and so breathtaking we cry each time we watch!!! Flagship has such a unique eye and they captured all of the most loving and compassionate moments of our best day ever!!! If you are debating to even video your day, please let your debate end here!! Hands down must do!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! Flagship thank again for everything, you’re all ahhhmazingly talented!!!
Having our day on video was super important to us so we could not be happier with the experience we’ve had with the flagship team. They are truly incredible. Mike and Tom do amazing work. They’re both super personable & hilarous which makes being in front of a camera so much less awkward. The GIF booth was such a big hit as well! I still crack up looking through everyone’s shots. I definitlet would recommend flagship to everyone!
Mike and his assistant were amazing at capturing our wedding day! He paid attention to all the little details and made sure to capture the special moments throughout out ceremony and reception. The team was extremely easy to work with and he made sure that we were comfortable throughout the day. You may think “do I need a videographer and is it worth it?” Let us tell you that our answer is emphatically YES! He was able to put together an amazing short wedding clip that captured all the highlights of our day. We were so busy throughout the day that there are many moments we simply forgot happened. We haven’t had the opportunity to see all the raw footage, but Mike will be providing us with hours of tape. I’m confident that there plenty of moments we will look back on as well once we get that.
What an amazing team to work with! From the first inquiry, through wedding day, to follow up after the wedding, these guys really WOWED us. They were super responsive and easy to work with during the planning stages. It was honesty a breath of fresh air amongst all of the chaos in dealing with multiple vendors. They went above and beyond on the day of the wedding, staying longer just to capture moments they knew we’d want to remember years from now and making sure they got the best coverage. We hadn’t even landed from our honeymoon before they had already sent us teaser video for us to watch. On top of everything else we received a super cute box filled with goodies and our raw footage in the mail on our one month anniversary. We couldn’t have been more impressed with their work and were super lucky have the best of the best by our side on our wedding day!
A+ experience all the way around! From the very beginning when I first inquired about their services, they responded very quickly and were very flexible in helping me customize in footage and price to obtain exactly what I was dreaming of. Their service was worth EVERY PENNY. My wedding video is literally movie quality and I am so thrilled I have it to look back on. I’ve watched it almost every day LOL I can’t get enough! & I cry every time. Their edits and timing, sound, lighting, everything was seamless. Even the music edited into the video was awesome and fit perfectly. They are amazing and extremely talented. Not to mention so sweet and down to earth & easy to work with. True professionals of their craft!!! I cannot thank them enough for giving me the most beautiful footage of the most important day of my life!!! You will be making the best possible choice if you book with them for your wedding or event!! :)
We are so glad we chose Flagship Studio to capture the best day of our lives. From our first phone conference to the wedding day Mike was nice, outgoing, enthusiastic, and accommodating. He answered all of our questions throughout the planning process and listened to our ideas and expectations. Mike and his assistant made us feel calm and comfortable the day of our wedding which allowed us to just be ourselves. The 5 minute video Mike edited and put together for us was amazing!! He honestly captured all of the special moments between us throughout the entire day. I would highly recommend Flagship Studio to any bride and groom to be, they will not disappoint :)
Where do we begin?! Mike and his team are amazing! From our first meeting through the day of our wedding, they were interested in every aspect! They kept in touch with my husband and I, and we even met for lunch to go over our vision. They were kind, compassionate, and patient. I will admit, by the day of our wedding, I was exhausted (bride). I had just planned the wedding of my dreams, like a control freak (haha) from another state, and by the time the day came, I was fried. Mike and his team, had the patience of saints. They knew I was exhausted, and although, I’m sure I may have made their job a little difficult, they worked with me like pros. Always smiling, and guiding me on what I needed to do! If I could give Mike and his team a thousand and one stars, I most certainly would! We also received all of our videos back within a week! They’re truly amazing, and we will definitely be using them again, in the future! Thank you Mike and team for an amazing day! We truly love you guys!
I don’t even know where to begin. Mike and his team went above and beyond to create the wedding video of our dreams! Leading up to wedding day, Mike was super responsive and always checked in. He made sure we had the same vision so that he could create exactly what we wanted. During the wedding, Mike was pretty much invisible but somehow managed to capture all of the best footage. I’ve had so many calls and comments from friends and family who said that they have never seen a better wedding video. We have already watched ours countless times. I would recommend Flagship Studios to anyone!
Right from the start Michael was so helpful. He made the process so easy and enjoyable. He worked so well to coordinate with my photographer to get all the right shots. I watch my wedding video over and over and still am in awe of how amazing it is!!
First of all, I just want to stress how important I think hiring a videographer is for a wedding...the day goes so quickly and while pictures are an awesome thing to have, nothing beats being able to relive the day through video. With that being said, Flagship Studios really are such a wonderful group of guys. They are professional, relaxed, and passionate about what they do and my husband and I have not stopped talking about how perfectly they fit in to the style of our wedding. I already recommend Flagship to anyone getting married or looking for a top quality video, and I will continue to do that for many, many years to come. Choosing wedding vendors is a stressful process, but it doesn’t have to be if you put your faith in the right people. My wedding video makes me so happy and every time I watch it I feel like it’s the first. Hire a videographer. Hire Flagship Studios, and it will be the easiest and best decision you will make!
Mike and his team were absolutely amazing!!! From the minute they arrived to the moment they left, they were extremely professional, kind, funny, patient and able to direct my awkward self into feeling like I was perfect and doing everything like a pro. They assisted my photographer when needed with no questions asked and were always positive and keeping it fun!!!! They captured all the little details and major events of the night, and when everyone tells you the day flies by they are not kidding however I fell like flagship played a huge role in allowing me to still be able to enjoy my special day but getting gorgeous footage as well. We had 3 videographers who arrived early while we were getting ready and immediately started making magic happen, they were very fair in pricing and I did not feel like I was getting ripped off like some of the other companies affiliated with weddings. They stayed throughout the whole night making sure every moment was documented. Mike and his team were truly a blessing my wedding video is absolutely breathtaking. I can not tell you the amount of phone calls and comments I received about this video!! I watch it and it tell a story of the day and our start to a new chapter in life, I can not stress enough how much you want these guys at your wedding!!!! Hire immediately!!!
Michael and his crew at Flagship Studios are the dream team of wedding videographers. They went above and beyond to capture our day in a way I never imagined was possible. I knew they were the perfect fit for us right from our first video chat meeting. Michel worked seamlessly with our photographer to plan out a perfect timeline and everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. Nothing felt rushed or hectic. Everything flowed naturally. Flagship Studios does not work by the hour. They work from start to finish ensuring they have all the footage they need to creature a masterpiece. His team took the time before they met us at the salon to capture iconic images of Long Beach Island and even gathered footage on other days other than our wedding day. Who else would do that?! Michael used drones to capture aerial images of our ceremony site and our home on the island. Flagship studios sent us a teaser video within a day leaving us wanting more. When the whole package was complete it came to us in a beautiful wooden box. You must choose Flagship studios to capture your day, they will not disappoint!
I can not say enough awesome things about this company! They were amazing the entire day. Joking around with me and my bridal party like we had all been friends before the wedding. All of my husband’s groomsmen had an awesome time with this crew and our video was unbelievable!! We loved everything about what they did, how the were, the results they gave and how professional they were. We got our video package yesterday and it was so much more than we expected! We will 100% recommend Flagship Studios to every future bride or groom we know!!
Where do I even start with mike and his team? They are TRULY AMAZING, from the first day I messaged he has been truly patient, attentive, and really cared! Mike made the whole process stress free and fun. One of the coolest things Mike did for us was take time to take some shots of us at Batsto village (where we had our engagement pictures shot) to incooperate into our wedding video. The day of our wedding Mike and his assistant Tom were laid back, stress-free, and documented everything but you barely knew they were there. Every time I saw them interacting with anyone it was always smiles anyway :) Fast forward to after our wedding, we received our video... PERFECTION!! I cried all over again and cannot get enough of it. Mike then takes the time to send your video in his flagship package with popcorn to enjoy a movie night with your new spouse :) Another recommendation I have is their GIF booth, an AWESOME spin on a photo booth and so different. My guests couldn’t get enough of it. When I first got engaged I wasn’t on the fence about a videographer, I am so THANKFUL I found mike, he is amazing and I have a truly priceless keepsake of my dream wedding.
Mike Hook and the gang at Flagship did an amazing job with our wedding video. He captured the pure emotion of the day and never interrupted the flow or enjoyment. Mike worked his tail off to get us the highlight film in a quick turnaround because we got married 2 weeks before thanksgiving. It was important to Mike that we could give our thanks to our family by reliving our amazing day, mind you we never asked for this and it was a pure surprise! A few friends and family were absolutely shocked when they saw our video simply because they had no idea anyone was there filming! Not only do they produce a great memory, they have ninja like skills!
We used Flagship Studios as our videographer, and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Michael was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and the final product was above and beyond what I was expecting. Both videographers were on time and very professional, with a great eye for shots. They even used a drone to get aerial footage, which was so cool! They worked really well with our photographer, which allowed us to get incredible video and photos without any fumbling or awkwardness, or interference with the celebration. To be honest, by the reception I even forgot that they were there! Michael was upbeat and so much fun to work with, he made everyone feel very comfortable. With Flagship Studios, it felt like having good friends rather than a strangers around to capture all of the footage that day. We actually got our highlight film (5mins) just one week after the wedding, followed by a feature film (12mins) less than a week after that! I could not believe they got it done so fast, and both films were simply stunning. It was such a treat to relive the memories. We received copies of all of the films, including ceremony, first dance, and speeches, as well as all of the RAW footage from the day online for downloading, as well as in physical copies on CDs and an external hard drive in the mail just about a month after the wedding, in a beautiful custom box and some treats! Our friends and family still comment on how beautiful our trailer and highlight videos were. The small moments they captured the morning of the wedding or during the reception that would otherwise fade into distant memory are now treasures that we can cherish for decades to come. I absolutely recommend him to any brides even considering hiring a videographer. If you are on the fence, just take a look at some of their videos on their website or Facebook page, as they are simply stunning. I promise you will not regret it!
I can’t say enough about Michael and his team. I would highly recommend Flagship Studios. Their relaxed personalities made my stress level drop! From the start, Michael was easy going and made booking hassle free!
Mike and his team were great. They were amazingly fast on the turnaround time for getting our video to us and everyone who saw the film was so impressed with the quality. We were very pleased with everything!
We could not be happier that we asked Mike and Tom to do our wedding video! They were both very professional and down to earth at the same time so that it made it easy to check in with them at any time before the big day to plan and quickly check in with them at the reception. The most amazing thing they did was that our highlight video was done and sent to me in a matter of TWO DAYS! And it was absolutely amazing! (Talk about dedication in one’s craft!!!!) Two years later and it still makes me cry (tears of joy)! Not to mention the full movie version was equally as awesome and totally captured each important part of our day. We are forever grateful to be able to relive all the wonderful emotions and happiness we felt on our most special day, and we couldn’t have asked for better videographers than Mike and Tom!
Mike at Flagship Studios was such an awesome person to work with! He made us feel so comfortable and natural with what he wanted us to do. He was able to work with whatever location we were in and just crafted such an amazing experience for us and our guests. We highly recommend Mike and this company!
AMAZING!!!! I wish I could give these guys a million stars! We had three videographers from Flagship Studios and they were all so professional. They were laid back and went with the flow of the day. After experiencing our photographers and how aggressive they were, it was so nice to have videographers who stayed somewhat behind the scenes and didn’t tell us what we had to do. On the day of the wedding, they quickly showed us some of the cool shots they got and I cannot wait to see the rest of our footage! This team of guys are also very fair with their prices. They did not nickel and dime us for the “extras”. They stayed with us from 9am-9pm and did not charge us by the hour. When researching videographers, most companies charged extra for anything over 8 hours. Mike and his team did not care how long our day was and wanted to get the full day of footage, even if it required them to work for 12 hours! Other companies will also charge a bride and groom extra for drone footage. Flagship studios includes drone footage and does not consider that an “extra”. Trust me when I say you WANT these guys to be your videographers. It was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day!!!!
