Hello! My name is Mike Zhu and I am a wedding cinematographer.
I have been filming and editing videos since my early years of high school (class of ‘06!). I began my path as a cinematographer when I first came across an NBA highlight video. The video was filled with so much emotion yet had an honest and simple story line. This changed my whole perspective on videography and since then I’ve strived to make videos that aren't just highlights, but stories as well!
I shot my first wedding in 2009 handheld with a digital camera. At that time I didn’t see myself shooting weddings. I saw myself working at MTV, ESPN, or some other studio, but after shooting my friend’s wedding I highly considered it! The next few year’s I attended workshops, shot for studios, and eventually created my own brand. What I love about my job is that I am constantly learning and get to explore new creative ways to tell your love story.
Please take a look at my videos to get a better feel of my style :)
