We just had our wedding about a week ago, so we haven't received our proof yet. However, Michael was wonderful during our wedding. You wouldn't even know he was there. He went above and beyond to make sure our shots would be great. Even doing some last minute sculpture with a hanger and scissor to get the wedding dress to hang in the right spot! Very easy going vendor. We're looking forward to receiving our proof and seeing what actually happened at the wedding, since it is such a whirlwind. So happy we decided to do video!

Although my (now) husband and I were debating in the beginning of our wedding planning whether to hire a videographer, it was the one thing that I was very passionate about. I knew that the whole night would be a blur and I wanted to be able to watch our ceremony and reception after everything calmed down, but I also did not want to break the bank in hiring a great videographer. I’m so glad I found Michael! From the beginning, he was very responsive to my emails and questions and very reasonably priced, especially compared to all of the other video companies I was looking at. I saw his videos on his website and really liked what I saw.
We initially hired him to film for 8 hours but once we realized the timing of our wedding was changing, I simply emailed him and asked if we could do the unlimited package for only $100 more. It was not a problem. Along with our photographer, Michael took video of us getting ready in our hotel room and he filmed some really cute, casual interviews of my husband and me talking about how we met and our relationship, which will be so great to see.
Although we have not seen the finished product yet, we saw clips of the wedding ceremony while we were waiting for the reception to start and it looked wonderful. I can’t wait to see the finished product.

I’d highly recommend hiring Michael if you want a responsive videographer, quality work and reasonable prices.

I've been deejaying for almost 15 years and I believe Michael may be the best videographer I've worked with so far. At first I just thought he was one of the guests at the wedding taking pictures, until he came over and introduced himself and showed me some footage he had taken earlier. I was amazed at how clear and awesome the images appeared. When the party went into high gear, he encouraged me to use my lights and it really enhanced the images as he enthusiastically showed them to me. He is one of the most creative and professional videographers you're going to find and I highly recommend him!

I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said. From our initial phone consultation, I was pretty certain that this could be the videographer for us.

After speaking with Michael on the phone, we couldn't come up with a day and time to meet, so he said that his associate, Marc Fuller, could meet with us. It was as if the stars aligned and angels began singing. You see...Marc looks like he could be a part of my family. In fact, he reminds me a lot of my stepdad, so I instantly felt comfortable with him.

Their studio in SW is simply put: AWESOME! They have all of the latest computer equipment, and a huge viewing screen and comfy chairs. We probably spent well over an hour talking to Marc, explaining our vision, and seeing his work. No question seemed too annoying or repetitive, and by the first 15 minutes, we knew that we wanted him as our videographer.

We'd barely left the building before I called Michael to negotiate our contract. I didn't want to hurt his feelings, but I knew that Marc needed to be our guy on our wedding day. We kept in touch over the ensuing 5 months, with me keeping him abreast of each detail I added to our day so that he'd be ready to shoot.

On our wedding day, he spent a lot of time in my suite while we got ready, and he captured some of the most beautiful footage there. He was so unobtrusive that everyone was able to be who they are, and didn't play to the cameras. Their second shooter was also amazing, and we can't wait to receive the final edit of our video.

The highlight video that we received shortly after the wedding was STUNNING, and captured so many moments that I'd missed in my bridal fog.

Their prices are highly competitive, and their work is better than some others' whose work, to me, isn't as good.

Choose Marc & Michael!!!

Michael was fantastic and easy to work with before and after the wedding. After seeing the video - I am so happy we decided to do video - you can't re-do the day and it passes so quickly - Michael was able to capture so many of the moments that we didn't see and all our beautiful memories of our wedding day. I am one of those picky brides that wants things exactly the way I pictured then - Michael worked with my on my MANY proofs and edits to make our videos perfect and there was always a quick turn around between edits! I showed a coworker our video and she has already signed with Michael for her wedding this fall!

I wish to thank Michael and Marc for their coverage of our wedding and reception. Michael was very responsive in answering all of my questions via email and was available to speak with our coordinator as well. Michael and Marc arrived early to our hotel to get pre-ceremony coverage which was greatly appreciated. During the reception, they were both inconspicious, but I know got alot of good coverage. We are very much looking forward to receiving our video and thank you both for being a part of our day!

Michael Brazda and his team are really professional. They stay out of your way and really know how to be discrete. Watching our wedding video, it was incredible to see all the shots he got because 90% of them, I don’t even remember him even being in the room!!!! He’s SO good! I didn’t talk much with him the day of, but I contracted him over a year before our wedding and all our email communications have been very prompt and professional. His prices can’t be beat – for what you get, it’s a really great deal compared to all other videographers that are on his level and experience level and quality. I can’t wait to show you our wedding video!! :)

If you're looking for a videographer that is non-intrusive, artistic, and a pleasure to work with Michael Brazda is the one to go with! He did an amazing job capturing our wedding day and we hardly even knew he was there because he blended in to each special moment of our big day. I was hesitant to include videography into our budget, but I'm so glad we did. Our draft highlights video was delivered to us about a month after our wedding and our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed re-living our wedding through the highlights video. He was definitely the right pick for our wedding!

My husband and I got married in April 2011. During the planning we had such a difficult time finding a videographer for our three day Indian wedding event until one day I came across Michael's website. I was immediately impressed! Michael was extremely responsive and helpful in providing us all the information we needed. We scheduled an appointment to meet with him and his group go over the details and sign the contract. Michael and his teammates were very professional and easy to work with through out our wedding. He provided all of our DVD's as requested in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to any bride and groom.

Michael Brazda did a magnificent job on our wedding. I would suggest him to any of my friends that are getting married. He was extremely flexible with times, locations, settings and he was very friendly and professional. My husband and I were so pleased with the quality of the film. He created us a wedding highlight video of our day to music and it is the most amazing video. My husband and I are making it a tradition to watch it every anniversary. Michael captured the most precious moments of our day with the best angles and close ups of our faces. I believe the DVD is what you have forever to replay your special day and having the right videographer is critical. I cannot think of anyone else who could have done a better job than Michael Brazda Films. My husband and I were and are still so happy!! I suggest him to everyone in the Virginia, DC, Maryland area. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!

There were a few things that bothered me. The biggest was that after I asked him (multiple times) to fade into the background as much possible (which he said was no problem) he stands about 10 feet from us during the ceremony so he's in all my guests' pictures, and he shined this incredibly bright light on us throughout the reception and was always 5 feet away... There were a few other small things but from the sounds of the other reviews it was probably a one time mistake.

We received the highlights video back 2 months late. I'm happy with it the way it turned out though. The only complaint I for the highlights video is the videographer missed half of my walk down the aisle. The full length video on the other hand is not that great. You can tell he was looking for 5-10 second clips and not capturing the night. It's very scattered and jumpy. There is no transition between each shot.

Update: After seeing my review Michael contacted me and was very much willing to work with me to make sure we were made as happy as possible and remedy what he could. I sincerely appreciate this and am happier with his services.
