Am I allowed to say they were my favorite vendor? I knew from the moment I saw Monachetti's work that they were amazingly talented and then when we met Mike in person I felt like we were just chatting with an old friend. He put me at ease the day of and it was so comforting knowing my wedding video was in the hands of a true professional. The video came out better than I could have imagined. I appreciate Mike's responsiveness as well. Mike, Pedro, and Kyle were all the BEST! Would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

I cannot begin to describe how happy I am that we used Monachetti as our videographer for our wedding. We were hesitant about getting a videographer because it was another big cost, so it ended up being the vendor I did the most research into. Monachetti's videos stood out from all the rest when I was searching for a videographer and I knew I had to hire them. Mike was great to work with throughout the whole process and on our wedding day it really felt like he wasn't there (not that we didn't want him to be!! but he was very unobtrusive). My now husband was a little hesitant, but the second he saw our wedding highlight video he told me he understood why we did it. My family, friends and I all watched out highlight video on repeat when I got it. It truly captured how amazing, fun and perfect the day was and it really feels like I am living it all over again - which is perfect for post wedding depression :) 100% recommended!

We cannot say enough good things about Michael Eller and his team at Monachetti. The quality is beyond comparison, the entire team was friendly, sweet and flexible the entire day and night, and people have GUSHED about our highlight video. Capturing our wedding beautifully was one of the priorities for us in regards to wedding services and Monachetti did not disappoint. They captured EVERY moment and in the most beautiful way. We joke that it's like we got to star in our own little wedding commercial, it is that well done. Some people may at first balk at the price tag -- let me tell you, it is WORTH IT. Every single penny. Hire the best and you get the best. Thank you, Monachetti - you perfectly captured our best day ever!!

Michael and his second videographer Pedro were a blast to work with. We booked Monachetti to do videography for our wedding after seeing a few of his videos and, while watching them, felt we had been a part of that couple's day. We wanted the same type of video to capture our big day. We met with Michael about 2 months before our wedding and immediately felt as ease; on the wedding day it was the same. Michael and Pedro inconspicuously filmed while we were getting ready, fun moments with our parents, the ceremony and reception. They truly captured the fun vibe of the night, and I've probably watched the video two dozen times in the month I've had it!

I had admired Monachetti's work for years, and when we got engaged I knew I needed to contact them right away! Mike, the owner, is so helpful and great to work with - he makes the entire process super easy, even with my fiance and I planning a DC wedding from Connecticut. On the day-of, he and Pedro were amazing. They made us all feel so comfortable we forgot they were filming (which makes for some great outtakes!). The film they produced was more amazing than I could have imagined - they captured the feeling of the day so perfectly and we are blessed to be able to look back on it whenever we want. It's not your standard wedding video, it's a work of art that I am proud to share and show off!

Words can't begin to describe how great my experience working with Mike at Monachetti was and how much I love the video he created. Monachetti was actually the first vendor we booked for our wedding. I had stumbled upon one of his videos on a wedding blog and instantly fell in love with the way he portrayed the couple's wedding. I knew that we had to have him be a part of our day. Luckily he was available!

Mike takes the time to meet with each of his couples before the wedding to get to know them and their story. I loved that he did this because it made us feel comfortable having him film us the day of - like he was just another one of our friends! Amazingly, he really makes you forget that you are being filmed. Both Mike and his assistant Pedro made the whole experience natural and fun.

It has only been two weeks since our wedding and we have already received the edited video from Monachetti. It's so much better than anything I could have imagined. Mike captured every detail about our day that was important to us and edited the video so artistically. He made us both look and feel like movie stars- we can't believe that it's actually us! Needless to say it has been on repeat since we got it. Hiring Mike was by far one of the best decisions we made. I am so grateful to have this beautiful video and know that we will cherish it for the rest of our lives. Thank you Monachetti!!!
