SIMPLE----STYLISH----MEMORABLE
We bring a filmmaker’s perspective to videography.
We have a background in the entertainment industry; owner & lead videographer JR Dziengel has written, directed, and produced short films in the Los Angeles area. JR Dziengel’s short film “The Special #2″ screened at film festivals throughout the country in 2008. He is currently in development with his James Dean film project, “Bastard”, which he co-wrote with filmmaker Nathan Crooker.
We are family!
We are a family run business and proud of it! JR is the lead videographer and his wife Ana is the Office Manager. We got married in 2004 and know what it’s like to plan a killer event. We are here to help!
We have a sense of humor!
Our clients are having fun, just watch our videos. We can capture the joy, excitement, and fun at your event!
We are “people” people.
Besides the entertainment industry we have both worked in the hospitality business. We know how to serve our clients, create a rapport with their guests as needed, and when to quietly work behind the scenes. Read less

JR and Make My Day Videography were fantastic. Trying to stay under budget, we almost decided to eliminate videography all together. We are so glad we didn't.

Out of the many videographers we sat down, JR had the far most reasonable packages to offer.

JR and company showed up early and got plenty of "set-up" footage, to go along with the complete ceremony coverage. They did an amazing job covering the reception, capturing moments we were too busy to witness ourselves.

The quality of the final video is top-notch and more than we ever expected. We loved the montage they put together for us, and the menus were a nice touch.

We love our video. Thank you!

Make my day Videography shot our wedding, and we could not be happier.
They were very professional, friendly, and easy to work with. The final results they delivered was very high quality, the sound and image were spot on. The presentation of the DVD was also very professional, i was very proud to give it to my parents and in-laws.

It was so nice to watch the video back and see all the things we missed the night of the wedding, and reliving every moment is priceless.

You will not be let down.

Make My Day Videography was an excellent choice for us. JR & John were really nice and took excellent footage of our wedding. They offered options in our price range and gave us a wonderful, professional looking DVD. The cover looked gorgeous and the DVDs are nicely put together. Plus, Ana was always really friendly and responsive to email whenever I had questions. They are a great company to work with and I highly recommend them.

We checked out many videographers and came away thinking that this industry is the biggest rip off. Thats when I saw MakeMyDayVideography, after meeting them we deicded to go with them because they seemed to really want the job and came with a movie making background. They came on time and were very friendly and professional, they met all of our needs and beyond. I would very highly recommend them, they might be cheaper than the competiton but their work is by far the best. We are every very happy with the quality of the DVD's, from the menus, video quality and especially sound quality.

Make My Day Videography gave us excellent value for the price. They were well prepared, timely, and, most important, unobtrusive. We requested only raw footage, and we received our DVDs within the time frame specified in the contract. The photographers captured all the important events beautifully from multiple angles. We are very pleased with the results. Highly recommended.

John was very polite and dressed up well to our wedding. My wedding was all the way down in OC and he showed up early to film us setting off from the hotel. He went extra miles to interview our guests and bridal party for clips. We knew that we would be so busy at our wedding that we really need someone who we can rely on to capture all the things we missed. John was very helpful, reponsive and just the kind of vendors you would be glad to have!

The folks at Make My Day Videography were the best we could have asked for. Very attentive to our needs, professional and provided a great service for a competitive and affordable cost. John and J.R. showed up early (stylishly dressed i may add) and stayed later than they had to. The final product was pure quality and captured our special day in a manner in which we and our families were very pleased with.

My husband and I were very selective about the videography and photography that we had for our wedding, since we knew that the day would go by quickly and we would be left with only our pictures and video after everything was done. Make My Day Videography met and far surpassed our expectations for quality service. John and J.R. really took time to find out what was important to us. They were professional, but flexible and easy to work with. On the wedding day they were unobtrusive yet somehow managed to be everywhere that we needed them, capturing everything! We loved the final product so much that we bought ten copies of the DVD to mail to our family and friends as Christmas presents. I don’t think that you could get better value for your money anywhere else, especially since their prices are so reasonable. I highly recommend them!

this was the best 'wedding' decision we ever made! we can't get over the fact that other friends and family are always requesting to see the wedding video again and again. their attention to detail, creative editing, filmmaking experience/skills, etc., all show through in the professional finished product. the prices are excellent, and the creativity and uniqueness that goes into the final video is totally unique and entertaining. all our friends and family are aware of the quality of video, and the videographers were able to blend in and interact with the wedding crowd in their unique and creative ways.

These guys are the best!
I just got my wedding DVD and had to write a review! I got married on July 14, 2012. I hired Make My Day Videography right after I met them. John & JR were so nice and friendly. Their package was very affordable. These guys did such an amazing job! These guys must of been video ninjas because I don't really remember seeing them that much. I must of been having a lot fun at my wedding. Anyways I just received my DVDs on my birthday actually on the 25th and I couldn't wait to watch it. First off the DVD cover was so nice. I loved it. They put the perfect pictures on it. They did such a wonderful job! Ana is so sweet and helpful. I can't believe how they condensed 6 hours into 1 hour and they captured everything. I am so happy with it! The songs, the transition into each part of the wedding. I loved it! Thank you so much for capturing my special day!
