My name is Christopher “Chris” Castillo, and I am a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps. I served a couple tours in Iraq and quickly learned the value of life and everything it offers. It was then that I took an interest in capturing my experiences through video in order to one day be able to look back and remember the events that helped shape who I am today. I have worked in the media/TV world in Houston, TX -filming documentaries and commercials for local and national companies. I also worked for an independent studio in New York, NY. In 2016, I decided to use my passion of filmmaking to create wedding films. I really enjoy getting to know the couples and not only capturing the best day of their lives but also developing new friendships.
When I am not filming weddings, I am spending time with my wife and two kids and preparing myself to ride in one of the largest Mardi Gras krewes each year!Share Your Experience!
Filming your wedding isn’t something I take lightly. I know the importance of the day and understand all of the time and effort that goes into planning such an important event. It is for these reasons that you can always trust that I put in the work before, during, and after your wedding to ensure that I capture all of the important moments. If you are looking for a videographer to just show up and not be involved in your wedding day, then I am probably not the videographer for you. I like to take the time to meet my clients either in person or by phone before the wedding day. I want to become friends with my clients so that during the wedding you don’t just have someone there to film your wedding- you have a friend you trust. I like to get creative and at times I will speak to you to make you feel comfortable and get some real emotion. My cameras are usually the smallest in the room and as a result I can blend seamlessly into proceedings. My goal is to be discreet and not to become a distraction, so guests are completely unaware that there is even a wedding videographer present. I would love to hear from you about your wedding ideas. If you like the sound of my unique approach to weddings- send me a quick email and tell me a little about what you have in mind. I am happy to provide details about my packages for our wedding videos or provide a quote for other services.
Chris shot my wedding, and he did an amazing job! He posted the instagram teaser just hours after the wedding! Everyone raved about the video. Multiple family members have told us that it brought them to tears over again. We recently got our trailer and full ceremony videos and they’re just as beautiful! I would absolutely recommend Chris for whatever special day you want to be able to look back on.
Chris is the best!! He did such a beautiful job with our video, and I’m so thankful we hired him. He paid great attention to detail, and really listened to our request. He was so approachable to us,and our guest. His video absolutely captured the love we felt during our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with it!!
Chris is by far the best!! Being the mother of the bride I wanted everything perfect. We did receive a teaser which gave me the goose bumps…then the video….PRICELESS!!!! He captured everything from the most tender moments to the most outrageous moments. We told him what we wanted and he went over and above. His drone footage was absolutely gorgeous!!! We truly enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone with an upcoming wedding – You won’t be disappointed – Thanks again Chris for everything and making Holly and Jared’s day so memorable!!!!
I never do reviews, but gotta give Chris credit here. Chris captured our memories at our rehearsal dinner and wedding in Mexico. Originally, we thought we couldn’t afford a videographer, but we’re glad we decided to go with Chris. He was not only very reasonable, money-wise and willing to come out to a destination wedding, but came very well prepared with an assortment of different cameras, as well as a drone. He did his groundwork, visiting our wedding venue on his own time and dime before the big day to plan his angles. You could tell he wanted to get everything just right. He was also very accommodating to multiple, and at times, conflicting demands from different people–us, our family, and friends. He never once complained about us making him run around like a madman and pulling long hours. Chris was very flexible, and at the same time, seemingly unnoticeable during our events. He was very easy to work with. Highly recommended. A++++
We were last minute making a decision and called Chris a week before our wedding. Not only was he very professional but put us at ease as he in advance went to the locations to plan how he would shoot the videos. The ceremony and reception was amazing as I did not even realize he was there. the finished product far exceeded anything I expected and we did not even have to edit. It was perfect with how he edited it with the music and all the special touches he added. STRONGLY recommend Chris. You will not be disappointed.
I’ll admit that I don’t usually write reviews, but I always read and value them tremendously. Today, however, and perhaps from henceforth I’ll give back and be the provider of very useful information for other consumers. Chris of Chris Castillo Films was an absolutely fantastic videographer for my husband’s and my wedding day. We chose to have a videographer at the 11th hour of wedding planning and finally went with Chris after a hearty recommendation from our trusted wedding planner and also after viewing other videos from his website. He was on point from the very beginning. He let us know the exact services he could and would provide along with a very reasonable price point for those services. In the early morning of our wedding day, Chris maneuvered through my hotel suite filming, almost unnoticed except for his chuckles when my bridal attendants would shoot a funny remark his way. I was not a particularly bossy bride or a “bridezilla” as some say, so I honestly did not provide much instruction at all about what I wanted to be included in the video. I was just kind of going with the flow. I’m so glad I did because Chris is so creative, and nothing that I would have told him could’ve produced a more beautiful teaser video and the most emotion-filled highlight video which captured so many precious moments throughout our day. Watching our video takes me back to that day and fills me with the joy, love, wonderment, and ecstasy that I felt then. I am so grateful that my family and I decided to even have a videographer, and I’m ever thankful to Chris for his pleasant spirit and creative mind. Five Stars!!!
