Mike was great. He was easy to work with on every level. Made us feel comfortable and the end result is wonderful. The highlight reel is awesome and the video came out nicely. I'm happy as hell with the end result and would recommend Your Cinematic Wedding to anyone and everyone

We were very impressed with not only Michael's work, but with his professionalism as well. He always was prompt in responding to questions, and we received our highlight reel and videos so quickly! We were also impressed with the quality and the fact that Michael captured amazing moments without being in the way. :) We absolutely loved the footage of our wedding and love reliving the day. Thank you so much - we truly appreciate it!

Dear Michael, We want to thank you for the most amazing wedding video and Highlight Reel – it was perfect! As we watched we realized that you were around at all times yet we felt like we never saw you which made the most natural and beautiful video! Thank you for being such a memorable part of our wedding and giving us a lifetime of memorable moments that you captured. We are looking forward to seeing you at Alexis’ wedding! Thanks again! Best, Marisa + Ryan

From the moment I found your website I fell in love! I wasn't planning on having a videographer because, quite frankly, I think most of the time it ends up looking like nothing more than a guy letting a camera run for 5 hours, however your work is ART and it completely changed my mind on the idea of videography. I love the idea of a journalistic/cinematic approach - the most important thing to me is capturing the "feeling" of the day vs. recording every last detail and I think you do that beautifully.

Michael is simply the best. I must have watched my wedding video 100 times. My highlight reel was amazing and brought tears to many. He captured all the special moments of our day and I am so thankful I can relive the best day of my life over and over again. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Michael thank you so much, it was a pleasure working with you and we are so thankful for all your hard work. xoxo Vicki Cupido

Initially, we were unsure about getting a videographer but after seeing samples of Mike's work, we were sold...and we couldn't be happier. He was awesome the day of but the end product just blew us away. It was much more than what we expected. Mike, you are an amazing artist and thank you so much for capturing such an important moment in our lives.

Hi Michael,  We just wanted to let you know that we received the DVDs and spent our Friday evening watching it from start to finish. It was so amazing--more than we expected. It is truly a work of art. Thank you again so much. It really means so much to us how wonderfully you've captured one of the most special days of our lives. All the best, Stephanie & Eric

Hi Michael,I just wanted to let you know we were BLOWN away by the amazing DVDs you sent our way. I can’t even tell you how impressed we are with the results! In fact, I recommended you to a friend and she may be contacting you shortly! Thanks again!

I wasn't sure if I wanted to use a videographer but I am SO THANKFUL I did. What Michael captured in footage will forever remain a treasure for me. What I most appreciated was how open he was to delivering my vision. I was particular about wanting a new media styled film with quicker movements and vocal overlay. He delivered exactly that. Most really good videographer's also charge an extreme amount of money making it easy for a bride to pass all together. Michael's pricing is EXTREMELY fair and what you get for your package is fantastic. Even his packaging of how you receive your final DVD's is top notch. Every bride needs to know about Michael. It was a pleasure from start to finish. Oh..and for the bride's that worry about the camera being in your face too much, my husband and I don't even remember where he was. We saw things on our video that we couldn't believe he captured because we didn't remember him standing there. Thanks Michael-job very well done!!!!

(Via Wedding Wire) Michael was incredible from the moment that we met him. He worked with us to film our Love Story on the coldest day of the year, despite feeling frozen, he made it so much fun. He brought out the best in us, and we were able to show that to all our guests at our wedding. Once we received the wedding video, we were COMPLETELY blown away, it took us right back to the day. I am still amazed he was able to capture EVERY detail, never once getting in the way.

i had only "met" with michael on the phone....but i had a good feeling that we made the right decision..... i hardly knew he was there all night, and was actually surprised when i saw him there at the end of the night... a few days later we recieved an email with a link to our highlight video while we were on our honeymoon! i think we spent quite a few quarters using the hotel's computers...we were so happy and so anxious to get our full video.... when we got that, we loved it! ....my mother in law brought her copy with her when she travelled to see the rest of her family...they were so grateful to be able to see our wedding since they weren't able to make it.... mike was able to capture all the great and memorable moments from the day, and we really enjoyed watching it and seeing the wedding from another perspective i can't recommend him enough! thanks so much!

I totally cry every time I watch it. We're so happy with this -- we feel like it really encapslates all the sweet, silly, smiley moments we had over the day. And we *totally* forgot about the high-five until we saw this!

Mike was the videographer for our Wedding on January 16, 2010 - he was a pleasure to work with and his work is top quality. My husband and I debated back and forth for a while - I had visions of cameramen with bright spotlights following me around at the wedding. My first conversation with Mike immediately quelled all my fears. On the day of our wedding he met us before the ceremony to video our couples photos and was there for the rest of the day, although to be honest I never noticed him because he so easily fit in with the guests. He's friendly, professional, and highly skilled - the best you could want in a wedding vendor! I love our video - it's exactly what I hoped to have from the day, and would highly recommend Your Cinematic Wedding to any bride!
