Dan and Kimmy’s Indiana Wedding

Here at JKS Productions, 2014 has been an amazing year already! We can not thank everyone enough for an amazing year already and are excited to see what else will come of it!

This March, we had the privilege to film the wedding of Dan and Kimmy Z. The two of them are such an amazing couple and we grew so close to this couple. But really, anyone who talks with them will instantly love them and become really close to them.

As a surprise from the groom, we got to do a Same Day Edit for this couple.  A same day edit is when we play a video for the bride and groom at the reception hall. The video that we played was amazing and all the friends and family at the wedding loved the video.  Not only did the family and friends love it but so did the bride who had no idea about it.  Below is the video that played at the reception!

We got to post another video for the Bride and Groom as well. This video was of the Bride singing a song at her wedding.  Not only did she sound amazing, but she also looked beautiful singing it! Check it out below and beware it might bring on some tears!

Chicago Wedding Videographer Gets Great Review!

This week we received a great wedding videographer review! The couple was Amanda and Michael from Chicago! Their wedding was on a gorgeous day in Chicago and we could not have asked for a better turn out!

When we received their review, we were in love with it! Their review states who we are as a company to the “T”

Josh was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and professional with his services. His never got in the way and as crazy as it sounds, we forgot he was even around sometimes, which is the ultimate compliment for a videographer.

Their reception was held at Germania Place in the city. This place was gorgeous and the room was very well decorated with flowers. The most amazing part of this room was the way the sun light came through the windows onto the cake. It made the area look so amazing and could take your breathe away!

Please watch a little video of the wedding here. If you are interested in having JKS Productions video your wedding please contact us!

Please take a few minutes here to watch the highlights from the night! If you are interested in having us film your next Sweet 16, please contact us!

8th Grade Photo Shoot in Frankfort IL

It is once again summer which means it’s a great time for photo shoots! We got the great opportunity to take Grant’s 8th grade pictures. These were taken at a near by garden center in Frankfort, IL. We went and shot about 200 pictures and were having so much fun that we lost track of time. We spent about 2 hours that day and we are so glad both the photographer and subject were troopers in the hot weather!

 

Thanks to Grant working in the heat all summe long, he did not sweat as much as we did. This made it easy for us! We hope to get this same opportunity soon!

Videos for Orland Park Church

We have been working with Orland Park Church for 6 years now and we are loving every minute of it! Our job at the church is to video anything they need for their website or sunday services. We promote special events with videos and even print. We work along side the staff and pastors to make sure the videos they need illustrate what they want. Here is a quick picture of us working with the pastor to decide what shot will be next.

This past week the pastors at the church asked us to film a video that will be used in the sermon to talk about trains and how they can be related to our daily walk in faith. If we would get on the wrong train and wrong track, we will end up at the wrong destination.

Please take a second to watch this small video that was played in the sermon to illustrate the trains.

 

 

Wedding Videographer Snags a 5-Star Review

WAHOO!  We cant be any more excited to receive another 5-Star Review from a Bride and Groom on our WeddingWire page!! This wedding was one of a kind! It was great to see a groom in the Marines all in uniform for the wedding!

 

This review comes from Sean and Molly Kennedy speaking about our work at their Wedding in Worth, IL.

Josh, the owner and creator of JKS Productions, helped us out for our wedding to create a package that fit within our tight budget and all I can say is WOW! for the value of what we got.  He worked so hard to make sure he included everything in filming on our big day and once we got our DVDs (fast) we were so thrilled.  He does beautiful editing work and his cameras are perfect HD quality.  We love you Josh for helping us out and doing such an amazing job.  I would fully recommend you go with JKS Productions because you will be in the hands of an upstanding professional videographer who really cares about you and understands this is the most important day of your life and captures it accordingly.  Thank you Josh!

Thanks Sean and Molly for a great wedding and we wish you both safety in the years to come and a great future together! Please view this video here to see a teaser from them cutting their wedding cake!

 

Gems Leadership Conference 2012 Video

GEMS Girls’ Clubs is a relationship-building club program created especially for girls. GEMS Clubs are offered in local churches and other Christian organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada.   JKS Productions was asked by them to film and edit a video for Gems that will promote a conference in 2012. This conference will be held here in Chicago! They use these conferences to talk about the next years studies and what will be taught to the girls that year.

It was back in mid March that we went downtown and filmed shots of iconic landmarks in the city. These shots were incorporated into the video in some way. There are two versions of the video and the one below is the one that will be on their website for all the leaders to watch over and over. You get to view it first here! The video that is not on the web is one that was shown at the conference in mid July. Please watch the video below and spread it around to those you know who will be attending in GEMS 2012!

Josh Siegers was amazing! He did a phenomenal job working with us from start to finish to make sure our DVDs were everything we wanted. He’s a charismatic individual who truly loves the work he performs. We’ve been referring him to all of our friends and family and definitely recommend him to you! A++++

We have worked many weddings with Steve and Operation Getdown and know there will be more to come! This wedding was beautiful with elegant up lighting, gorgeous cake, and a beautiful bride.

Affiliated Steam and Hot Water is the Midwest’s largest distributor of steam and hot water products.

JKS Productions films -“The Best Wedding Introduction of 2011″

On April 16th, 2011 our Dyer Indiana Wedding Videographers worked with Steve and Kaitlyn Dykstra (Lyzenga) on one of the biggest weddings of 2011. JKS Productions got the opportunity to film this wedding and it was such an honor. We  filmed the introductions with two cameras and put them together into one video with a another video made by the groom, Stevie Dee from Operation Getdown, that played on the jumbotron in the ballroom. The reception was held at Casa Maria Banquets. The room had many up-lights on the brick walls that made the room pop. In our opinion, the reception could not have gone any better! The food was amazing, guests were having a great time and the lighting was amazing!

JKS Actor/Actress Audition Video

This past weekend we had the opportunity to film an Actress’ Audition Video. This video will be sent to producers in Las Angeles and help her get a role in an upcoming movie. Her agent told her that High Definition Audition Tapes would help her to get the part, so she called us to help her out!

JKS Productions teamed up with a Director, Stephen Tuplin, from Joliet. Stephen Directed the actress off camera to make sure that the performance would be great. The work done by both of them was phoneminal. To view a sample of the audition, please click play below! Remember this is High Definition video and audio.

We plan on teaming up again in the future for more Actor and Actress auditions. If you are an inspiring Actor or Actress in the Chicagoland Area in need of High Quality Audio and High Definition Video, please email us at Info@JKSProductions.com.
