All good things must come to an end. As we've announced on our Facebook page and to many that have inquired about our services, we will no longer be filming weddings after 2014. We're extremely proud of the work we've done so far and more importantly, we're honored to have gotten to work with so many amazing people. Right from the start, we've considered your wedding days to be some of the most important footage we'll ever capture. It's the most important day of your life and we're giving you something to remember it by forever. It's a job we've taken the utmost pride in and we consider ourselves blessed to have achieved such a level of success in a short time. We will take this experience forward with us, knowing that anything we do professionally will be better because of what we learned during our time as wedding professionals. To all of our previous and current clients, what more can we say except we love you all. You took a chance on a couple of unconventional filmmakers and allowed us the opportunity to do something special. No matter where we go in this business, we will never forget any of you. And to all headed into marriage in the future, I sincerely hope the day is perfect for you in every possible way. Don't settle for anything less than the best places and people to share it with. Warmest regards, Joe Minnella Read less

Do you offer demo DVDs for potential clients to look at?
Yes. We have an extension collection of our work available online and also on Blu Ray and DVD.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
We strive to combine the awe inspiring cinematic look of feature films and music videos, with the real feel of documentary work. We consider an event an important opportunity to not only tell a story as any filmmaker would, but to also preserve our clients' most cherished memories.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
Basic color correction and color grading, stop motion animation, time lapse photography, 3D Photography, some slow motion, color manipulation. We do not ever overuse special effects. They are simply to add a little something extra to the video where fitting.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes we do. We do not light an entire room as we consider the ambience of your wedding setting to be extremely important. We use various portable LEDs to light certain parts of a dance floor, etc.

Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We only break when there is no action to capture. We consider Cocktail Hour a perfect opportunity to reset our equipment and regroup. We require food and beverages at your event as our day is generally 12-14 hours long. We cannot promise our best work unless properly nourished.
Do you charge overtime?
Not if it occurs in the same day and location. We charge by the day. After parties are at our discretion. If, for example, you would like an after party filmed and it is at a separate location from your reception venue, we may need to charge an additional price. Otherwise, we are there from early morning to late night and do not consider hours.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
If purchased, yes. We ask to be given a brand new, unopened external hard drive or reimbursed for the price of one.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes. We will never make public full videos, private moments, last names, or anything that a client may consider sensitive material. Our video recaps do go online and are sometimes used to promote future work.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
We will always ask for some input and preferences. We prefer just enough input to know which direction to take it. That way we can still use our creativity and expertise to create the perfect product.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
Our current turn around time is 12 months for the final video. Recap videos are currently available within 4 weeks.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
No, we charge by the day.

Joe and Dennis hands down are beyond the best. I saw a video clip of a friends wedding and knew that when I got engaged he was my first vendor I would be booking. 6 months later I was engaged and joe was my first call. Joe is the most professional person to work with and makes you feel so special and important. His dedication and passion to his work really shines through. He is not a typical vendor that watches his clock. He was the first to arrive and the last to leave at my wedding . This just goes to show how dedicated he really is. If you are looking for someone that can provide uniqueness to you video he is the right person. Since I have received my mini clip video the responses from friends and family have been "it's like a movie" " I wish I could get married again to hire him" " best wedding video I have ever seen" thank you again joe and Dennis

Joe was a dream to work with. He took copious notes on my wedding details, and wants from his services in advance. I appreciated this as I am also a perfectionist. He executed everything exactly the way we wanted. He even did a very reasonably priced special edit of our wedding flash mob. He is very passionate about what he does and it shows in his work. Very professional guy!

Booking Joe was the best decision we made!! Joe and his assistant Dennis were the most professional and hardest working vendors we had. But the work just speaks for itself. Go to http://vimeo.com/joecinema and you can watch the short videos he has made for past clients (including ours!) The quality and creativity is amazing!! He was our favorite vendor. Just absolutely amazing. We recommend Joe and his team highly!!

I cannot say enough about Joe and his crew! This was the last thing we booked-- we did not budget to have video at our wedding, and a few months before, after watching my parents wedding video from 30 years ago, we realized how much we really wanted to capture our day. They did an unbelievable job! They showed up at my moms before anyone else, and began working right away. They did not skip a beat, and worked right up to the very last moment of our wedding! The footage they captured is unbelievable! They are SO talented! We cannot wait to relive the best day of our life when we get the video. Thank you so much Joe, Dennis, and Melissa for capturing and such a special day!! I highly, highly, highly suggest Joe Minnella Cinematography for your wedding day!

There aren't many words that can quite capture just how happy we are to have found Joe Minnella. He has continually exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process from our save-the-date video to our wedding recap. Joe and his team are so full of energy and excitement for what they do.. you can actually SEE it when they're working. They are truly hard-working, and deliver the absolute best of results.

Joe has a knack for listening to your ideas and taking them above and beyond your wildest expectations. He knows his stuff and is very open to experimenting and trying out new things. His videos all bring something special and unique to the table. I can keep going, but I'll end with this: with all the stress that comes with planning a wedding, you can be 100% at ease with the decision to hire Joe Minnella to capture your day!

Joe Minnella and his team of Dennis and Mellisa worked so hard at our wedding. From coming in our rooms to film us prior to the ceremony to the last song of the night they never took a break. They were constantly moving around to get creative shots. Our Bridal party had such a great time with the fun ideas Joe came up with. This team did everything they could to make sure the lighting in every frame was absolutely perfect. They were polite and accommodating to every guest as well, never shoving a camera in anyone's face unless they asked for it. Joe's fantastic videos are changing the way we think of the typical "wedding video". Whenever our friends tell us"we're not getting a video because we'll only watch it once", we respond with, "That's because you haven't seen a Joe Minnella video yet. Joe helped make our day stress free and fun! His product is a result of his teams non stop hard work ethic. If you are looking for a professional, fun, and creative video like none other, look no further than Joe Minnella Cinematography.

Joe is seriously the best. He is the most easy going guy and seriously the hardest worker! He was there for every aspect of our wedding but not in a flashy way. Our guests commented that they barely knew we had a videographer because he didn't get in peoples faces. I swear he didn't stop all day! He arrived early in the morning at about 8:30 a.m. and didn't leave until the wedding was over at 11:00 p.m.

I had found Joe about a year before our wedding. I looked at my husband and told him it was either Joe or no one. I followed his blog and I was sure he was the only one I wanted for our wedding. His work really speaks for itself. When we met with Joe for our finals meeting, we spent about an hour and a half with him He got every aspect and detail of our wedding but it didn't feel like a "business meeting" it was very easy to talk and be ourselves with him.

I highly highly recommend him for any event you may have!

I cannot wait to get the full video of everything! I know I will not be disappointed

I can’t say enough about how impressed with were with Joe Minnella. As with a lot of people we were on the fence about even getting a videographer but after scouring reviews on weddingwire I stumbled upon Joe’s website and was instantly impressed. After meeting with Joe it was a no brainer. He was incredibly helpful and professional from the planning process all the way through the actual day of the wedding. Everyone that we have shown the video has been blown away by his talent and creativity. Booking Joe ended up being one of the best decisions we could have made. You can tell how hard he tries to make each video personal and unique to each wedding. We’ve only received our wedding recap video so far but couldn’t resist giving Joe the best review possible. We know we will only been even more impressed once we receive our full video. If it is even remotely possibly that you can find the room in your budget book Joe, it will be one of the best decisions you will make.

Joe Minnella is pure talent. Joe is worth every single penny and then some. Joe captures the most important and happy moments in your life on camera and then creates videos that leave you stunned and in awe. He made our engagement video last summer and we were beyond impressed. Our family & friends who we shared the video with were amazed, not only because these videos are a newer trend and they're a keepsake, but by the quality and creativity of the video. We hired Joe for both the engagement shoot and wedding. Less than 3 weeks after our wedding (8/11/12) Joe sent us our Wedding Recap video and I've watched it about 60 times so far. I've posted it to facebook and e-mailed it to family and friends. Our older guests wished they had video services like this when they were getting married and our friends our age are set on using Joe in the future when they get married! Joe, you are the best. You are creative, intelligent, prompt, professional, happy and wonderful. Thank you making us feel so special and capturing the most important day of our lives!! We can't wait for the full video!!!!

We went back and forth when we were budgeting for our wedding on whether to hire a videographer. In retrospect, if we knew what we would get with Joe, we wouldn't have given it a second thought. Joe was an absolute professional and a lot more than just a videographer. Joe made our wedding into a movie.
It's very difficult to achieve a balance between capturing the entire night and not being in people's way and Joe strikes that balance seamlessly. He has a passion for what he does and in the first second you see him work you know that you are going to be blown away by the end result. We had an incredible wedding and I couldn't imagine not being able to look back on that day and night for the rest of our lives.
Joe is an absolute steal for the quality of his work and his professionalism. You are going to have a bunch of different "vendors" at your wedding but at the end of the day you want people there that are going to be fun and energetic and fun to hang out with and Joe is all of those things. You are going to love how he captures your wedding and you are going to love having him there.
If you are debating whether to hire a videographer let me save you the time. Hire Joe. You are never going to look back and regret watching an awesome movie of your wedding night.

Joe was excellent! He was SUPER easy to work with. He was insightful, creative, and extremely professional. He arrived extremely early, spend the whole day/night with us, and returned to us our "recap" video promptly. Our guests have all commented that our recap is one of the best, if not the best video for a private event they have ever seen. I'd suggest working with Joe Minella Cinematography to anyone seeking a high-end, well produced video!

I could not be happier that I chose Joe and his crew to capture all of the special moments of my wedding day. They arrived early, setup, and started shooting right away. From the minute they arrived, I knew that they were going to get amazing footage of my wedding day. They did not miss a beat! So many of my guests commented on how thorough they were throughout the entire day. They were doing everything except back flips in order to get the footage that they needed to make an unforgettable video. Although we have not seen our full wedding video yet, I have no doubt in my mind that it will be unbelievable. Joe put together an AMAZING recap video to highlight the special moments of the day. I watched it over and over again and I was amazed by how he chose just the right moments to include in the short video. The editing of the video is flawless, and I am confident that our full wedding video will be just as fabulous. Joe was very professional from the day my husband and I met him. Not only do Joe and his crew take their jobs very seriously, but it is evident that they truly enjoy what they are doing. Joe and his crew were the first of my vendors to arrive and the last to leave. They stayed until the party was over. The only way to describe Joe in action is to think of Superman running around a room. I now know how he gets his exercise...he did not stop running around from the minute he turned his video cameras on, which proves how dedicated he is to his job. I would highly recommend Joe Minnella Cinematography to anyone looking for a videographer who will truly capture the unforgettable moments of any special event.

Joe and his team are extremely professional, friendly and extraordinarily talented! They captured our special day from beginning to end with beautiful detail and never missed a beat.

We were wonderfully surprised throughout the whole wedding process by Joe Minnella. Joe’s passion, professionalism and energy is truly inspiring while his talent, innovativeness and creativeness separates him from a lot of other vendors. He was always timely to answer all of our questions and quell any of our neurotic concerns or ideas.
Not only did Joe capture every face, smile, tear and memory of our wedding day, he also created a personal documentary of “Our Love Story” (http://vimeo.com/31618074) We suggested the unique idea of showing a personal documentary video of “Our Love Story” minutes before the ceremony began and Joe made it happen! He masterfully crafted, shot and produced “Our Love Story” and our guests got to witness our love for each other through Joe’s amazing video before we said “I Do!”
On the day of our wedding, he was the first vendor to arrive and the last vendor to leave. We knew he was not simply doing his job; but genuinely cared about capturing every second, minute and hour of our wedding. We were completely wowed by Joe and would recommend him to anyone with absolutely zero reservations! We have watched our recap video over 100 times and still smile every time we watch it and know the full length video will be just as great. We are extremely happy we decided to use Joe Minnella Cinematography as our wedding videographer.
XOXO
Elise & Mitch

Joe did a great job with our trailer/preview for what is to come....he really captured the mood of the day and got a lot a great of footage without ever seeming like he was ALWAYS around. I actually couldn't believe how great some of the stuff he shot was considering we barely saw him...which was perfect. We wanted great shots and video and to not feel like we were being filmed the whole time...and in that respect, Joe was like a fly on the wall. He got everything great and wasn't overbearing. We would recommend him to anybody. You can tell he has a real love for what he does and he is extremely talented at it. We are actually ordering more recap videos since everyone loved the first one so much. He was there from the minute we began getting ready until the very end of the reception...really just a phenomenal job!

I was back and forth on hiring a videographer- found Joe via a referral... He was flexible with our needs (it was a VERY long day of shooting in Manhattan), he was professional and energetic throughout the entire day, and I was blown away by our final recaps! By far, I found the best vaule and hands down better service than I would have gotten if I had hired a big company for triple the amount of money. This was probably the best decision I made during planning... I can't stop watching the video, I feel like I'm reliving the day! Will recommend Joe over & over again...

If I could give more than 5.0 stars, this would be the vendor to get them! Joe amazed us with our unbelievably touching and personal wedding video. Our mouths hung open in awe the entire time we watched!! He caught moments that we missed (like my cousin running after our tiny little flower girl when she walked the wrong way after making her entrance into the reception!) - and things that we forgot about, like the vows that we wrote for each other and giggled the whole way through.
Joe made us the happiest people on the planet - this isn't just a wedding video, but the best memories of our lives, forever recorded for our family to enjoy for years to come. We are blessed to have met Joe and to have been able to see his amazing talent in action!

My fiance and I initially weren't going to hire a videographer - we thought it was out of our budget and unnecessary. Fortunately, my wonderful bridesmaids got us a package from Joe Minnella Cinematography as a shower gift. It was the BEST gift ever and we are so happy to have the video! So far we've only seen the short music video recap, and already we're so happy with the video! There are so many moments that we didn't get to see during the big day (each other getting ready, guests arriving, bridal party entering, etc) that are perfectly captured on the video. Joe's editing is also extraordinary. We couldn't ask for anything better. Throughout the whole process he was flexible (especially considering we weren't even the ones who booked him!), responsive, and very professional. I would recommend him to anyone - it is definitely worth it to include videography in your budget.

I was told about Joe Minnella's work from a friend and fell in love with his artistic style mere moments into watching some of his work. I knew I had to have him capture our engagement shoot!

Joe is so absolutely passionate about his work- it was evident seconds into our initial conversation. And after finding out he was a self proclaimed "Disney Nut" like myself, I knew this was a match made in cinematography heaven! After hearing about our Disney engagement, Joe voiced how he would love to incorporate it in our video - and boy did he!

He is the utmost professional- he kept the lines of communication open all throughout the process and was quick to reply to any of my calls or emails with questions or quirky ideas.


The day of the shoot, I arrived seeing Joe already at work getting lots of scenic footage, armed with cameras and props. He was such a good sport in lugging all of his equipment up and down the boardwalk and beach when it was decided we needed to switch up locations. He was also a gem at directing my fiancé and me into different shots without it feeling forced or campy. Shooting with him felt natural and truly made us feel at ease with him behind the lens.

The final product took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. It surpassed anything I could've possibly imagined. He really captured how silly and kooky my fiancé and I can be.

I cannot fully put into words how thankful I am to have found Joe and his amazing work. He has given me and my fiancé a wonderful memory to share with our friends and family for years to come.

Brides and grooms to be you WILL NOT be disappointed if you hire Joe Minnella Cinematography to capture your special day!

When we first started planning our wedding, we were really undecided about hiring a videographer. To be honest, we were really leaning to the "not hiring a videographer" side. And then we met Joe Minnella and saw some of his work. Hands down, hiring Joe was the best decision we made about our wedding! Not only is he extremely talented, but he loves his job! His passion really shines through the entire day that he is shooting your wedding and even more so in the videos that he produces and is so excited to share with you. We did something really untraditional on our wedding day: we planned a race that morning for our families and friends. Just to give you an example of Joe's dedication to his work, not only did he show up at 9:00 in the morning to get some shots of the race, he even ran part of it with us to capture moments on film! Joe is very artistic and yet he also really keeps the couple in mind when editing and creating their video. While the end product is what you are really hiring him for, I also think that it is important to note that he has so many other wonderful qualities that make him the best person to hire for your wedding day! He is responsible, organized, and really easy to talk to. We really felt like he was a friend of ours after spending our whole wedding day with him! He also understands how excited a couple is to see their video and has an amazingly quick turn around time -- we got our recap video 2 days after the wedding and it was so much fun to open it and watch it on our honeymoon! Thank you Joe for such a great experience and for giving us the opportunity to relive our wedding day over and over again!

Joe is absolutely amazing! He listened to everything my husband and I wanted for our video and took it and ran with it. Our recap video is absolutely the best I've ever seen. I cannot wait to see the entire video, I know Joe will do a phenomenal job with the entire day's worth of footage.
Joe is one of the nicest people in the world and his smile and willingness to listen make things comfortable and easy. Joe manages to get amazing shots of everything without ever being in the way of anything or anyone. Dennis also gets great shots and does a wonderful job as well.
I highly recommend Joe Minnella for all cinematic needs. I already have one friend book Joe after seeing our recap video.

Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with. He provided the cinematography for my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration on January 8, 2011. The Church ceremony started at 11:00 and the "bridal" entourage arrived at 10:30. Joe had already arrived well before then to capture some footage of guests as they arrived. Joe was accessible throughout the entire reception, he kept in touch with me the entire time to make sure he was filming everything my parents would have wanted footage of. We have taken a look at the video pre-view and the product is phenomenal!!! The edits to the music he chose was awesome and its viewers have all said how wonderful a job Joe did. I would HIGHLY recommend Joe Minnella Cinematography for your event...he is a dream to work with and will ensure that you can re-live your celebration for years to come!!!
