RELIVE YOUR GREATEST MEMORIES

October 6, 2019. The day I got married was one of the greatest days of my life! Outside purchasing a home, it was also one of the most expensive days of my life! Yet, it was soooooo worth it. My wife and I while working with so many amazing talented vendors planned a beautiful wedding. We thought of all the details to ensure not only our guests had a great time, but that we would together experience a once in a lifetime experience. It truly was a fairytale come true.

The greatest gift was when we received our wedding highlight film some months later. We smiled. We shed tears of joy. We were truly inspired of what an amazing wedding we had shared with so many amazing friends and family. We must’ve watched our film 20 times that night. We relived our greatest memory and continue to do so months later. We can’t wait to share this memory with our children and grandchildren one day.

MAO Films isn’t just a job. It’s a passion of mine. I treat my clients as family. Their happiness means everything to me. I take on limited amounts of weddings as I choose to devote myself 150% to my work going above and beyond to make sure your wedding is beautifully and naturally captured. I treat each film as a separate story and do not use a cookie-cutter approach often found with other videographers - think fancy camera shots with sappy music in the background but no real story.

I MAY BE THE PERFECT FIT IF...

You want your wedding love story to be captured naturally capturing raw emotions. You appreciate creativity, professionalism, and someone that will help make you feel extremely comfortable on your big day

And most importantly, you love my cinematic films!

Phenomenal Videographer and Person

Mark was absolutely phenomenal to work with. He went over and above to accommodate our wishes and even came to our rehearsal dinner to capture footage that we will cherish for a lifetime. Mark was very detail oriented, open to feedback, and great at his job. Everyone we shared our wedding video with talked about how it really captured the day, the emotions, and felt like a movie they were re-living. He was affordable, friendly, and easy to communicate with. We highly recommend Mark for your wedding.

Blended In

Mark and I found each other on a Northern Virginia Wedding Facebook group. I was looking for a videography team for our three-day Indian wedding. Mark reached out with so much enthusiasm I couldn't say no. It was 100% the right decision. Mark and his partner blended into the background and worked seamlessly with our photographers.

Hire mark!

Where do you even start when talking about Mark?! First off, he was the absolutely the first vendor I hired. I actually hired him for my sister’s wedding. We were so happy with his work that we hired him for ours! I was a COVID bride and changed our plans 4 times before we got married. Mark rolled with all the plans and the lack there of. He even reached out with ideas and advice when I was at my lowest and unsure of what decisions to make.

We ended up needing to get married because my husband is in the military and we got orders overseas. To have a COVID safe wedding, Mark live streamed the entire event AND the first dance AND the speeches. I can’t tell you how much it meant to us to know that they family that couldn’t be “with us” was with us. It was so perfect. Mark was like an extended part of the bridal party.

Just some of the little things you can expect if you hire Mark:
- him to think of EVERYTHING. Even in our livestream, he took our rehearsal dinner slideshow and played that before the livestream started for the guests at home waiting. We didn’t ask for that he just knew it would be a great touch. We got so many compliments about that.
-incredible drone footage. AMAZING shots of the vineyard. It was super hot on our day and mark even set up the drone as a fan. He also ran and got his car and let me sit in it during the downtime of pictures.
-a movie quality final video. I was nervous because we had no real reception with dancing. I thought our video would be boring. But no, Mark made it entertaining, beautiful and very us. Complete awe - it is so much more than I expected and envisioned.
-him to become family. Mark is family now.

My husband and I felt honored to have Mark be part of our wedding, let alone, create the magic that he did. I will be hiring them for all and any events I have in the future. I have one brother left to get married and you best believe Mark will be there too. ; D

There was so many compromises I had to make for my wedding but the one thing I knew I wanted was MAO events. There may have been a lot of planning tears, but when I saw my video there was nothing but happy tears. I can’t thank Mark enough. If you have any doubts, get the videographer and more importantly book Mark.
