We love Arista
Since we chose to elope, we knew that we would need an amazing video to share our special day with friends and family.
Our goal was for them to feel, and to experience the special moments just as though they were there with us. We wanted the energy we had that day to connect with them, so they could share in our joy.
Mark was great to work with and it was easy to see his creative style at work as soon as we got started. He communicated often, and moved about to ensure he captured the very best of every setting.
Mark's video was so well done, and so completely captured the magic of our ceremony, that when we had to cancel our reception back home due to Covid, our would-be guests still felt as though they experienced a part of that day with us. We are so impressed with Mark's video, and we received so many compliments on the power and passion it delivers.
It's a great reminder of our love, and something we'll routinely watch forever!
Thanks so much, Mark!!

I can’t find the right words to express my sincerest gratitude for the service MJ and his team have provided on our wedding day on 02.20.2020. His production delivered a super special SDE that left all of us in tears OF JOY! He captured the best parts of our wedding which are now etched in everyone’s hearts. MJ is very easy to work with, offers competitive rates for his services, very responsive during the planning process, helpful in giving suggestions and recommendations for the wedding preparation, professional yet personable that he is now part of our family :)! Thank you, thank you, and we will be forever grateful for capturing our special day! Much love, more success, and God bless!Sent on 02/29/2020

AMAZING, thoughtful, wedding videographer!
MJ and his team were an absolutely amazing videographer team to have shoot our wedding video. I live in Australia and he was so prompt and professional with all of my emails. We had a few phone chats beforehand and he even met up with myself, my husband and our photographer a few days before the wedding to answer any final questions we had. He did a great job of prompting us on the wedding day to get some really beautiful video shots. My husband and I were blown away when we received our wedding video back. It was so thoughtfully edited, put together with so much love, and included such amazing words from our wedding day. The songs he chose were beautiful and you can tell that he puts together these videos with passion and so much love. I would 100% recommend MJ for your videographer needs - we are so thankful to have this video to watch back and enjoy for the rest of our lives. Thanks so much MJ!Sent on 01/19/2020
