What some or our brides have said about their experience with us...
"We met with Medici Studios last minute when we realized cinematography was a reality instead a hope for us. We met a few months prior to the wedding and chose the songs we were interested in, and got to know each other. Day of, they were there from the time the prepping began until we left the venue. One thing I was pleased with was no time constraints. The shots they got were artistic, which helped captured the true emotions that were felt that day. Our friends laughed and cried when they watched our movie because they "feel like they were there" whether or not they actually attended. This movie helps us remember the good times. Dan really went above and beyond for our wedding. The best man deployed to Iraq 9am the morning of our wedding and couldn't attend. It was heartbreaking for everyone. Dan stayed up ALL night editing a short film for our best man to watch when he landed. This movie really formed how we remember our day. Our wedding gifts were stolen, and it really put a damper on how we remembered the wedding. When we watched the final product for the first time, we forgot about all the bad things that happened, and fully relived the best day of our life. Cinematography is hands down the BEST choice we made for our wedding, that is of course, besides the "I Do's"... I highly recommend Dan and Medici Studios to all the bride-to-be's we know, and I recommend them to you too."

"We could not have been happier with our interactions with Medici during all ceremonies/events - they were unobtrusive, blended well with the guests and were almost always at the right place at the right time. Dan was very responsive over emails and very obliging when I requested some changes to our final video, even though I'm sure those changes took a fair amount of extra time. He used all my suggestions for songs in the final feature and the end product was nothing short of amazing - we LOVED it. It's the perfect way to re-live the ceremonies and all the memories of our special day. Thanks!!"

"Don't be afraid to try new things. It's a MUST to have your wedding memories captured in video because before you know it, the day is over but at least you have a video that you can always watch to reminisce what happened on your special day. Entrust in Medici Studios to get you the footage that you want on your wedding day without having to worry about anything. We appreciate their willingness to work with our style and they are very flexible.Overall, we would really recommend Dan and his team. It's the best wedding investment ever!"
"Medici Studios was able to capture all of the incredible emotions that Xavier and I felt on our wedding day. Memories always fade, even the memories from yor wedding day. You can look at photographs and imagine how your one special day was, but some things always get lost with time. When Xavier and I watch our wedding video, it's as if we're right back at the alter, sharing our vows again. Medici puts so much emotion and love into their videos, you will never miss or forget a single moment of the happiest day of your life."

"My husband and I didn't think we NEEDED a cinematographer for our wedding, but looking back, we would've regretted it so much if we didn't go with Medici. Looking through all our professional and personal wedding photos, home videos - the thing everyone loves watching the most is the wedding video. The way it perfectly captured the spirit and emotions of our big day, every time we play the video, we get to relive that day, and we feel people who watch the video really get a sense of what our wedding day was like. And trust me, after all the hard work a bride puts into planning her wedding, you want it well documented!"

"We loved working with Dan and Medici Studios. They were enthusiastic about shooting in a new, unique venue. Dans communication was wonderful leading up to the big day as well as after the wedding. His flexibility didn't go unnoticed and he and his brother were shooting all day... as the bride I know how long of a day that is. They were professionally dressed and blended right in. we couldn't have asked for a better package deal and best of all they're Cougs... need I say more! If you are looking for an eager, enthusiastic videographer that produces a video that exceeds your expectations, I would recommend Medici Studios. Although we don't get to do the day over, we get to relive each moment of our magical day through our video! Thanks MS!"

"Having Medici Studios shoot our wedding was hands down one of the best decisions we made regarding our big day. Dan and his team are consumate professionals and were able to capture the spirit and feeling of our wedding without being an intrusive presence. Our wedding video is the most cherished keepsake we have from our actual wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased."
