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!!!

I've been familiar with Monachetti for years and have been watching their wedding videos on their blog even before I was dating anyone. The way they combine the video and the music is always so beautiful and unique for each couple. Once I got engaged, I didn't even consider any other videography companies because I knew Monachetti does such amazing work. Mike was fabulous to work with as we discussed the details for the day, Brittany and her assistant were great and just disappeared during our wedding but were still able to capture every moment. My husband and I have watched our wedding "short" probably 20 times in the last week - we just love reliving the day. We're looking forward to receiving our discs as well.

Thanks to Mike and the Monechetti team - I will certainly recommend you for all of my friend's upcoming weddings!

Michael was the first videographer we met with and the last. After our first meeting, we knew we had to work with him. He was professional, kind and incredibly talented. Michael was always quick to respond to any questions we had and was just an absolute joy to work with. His assistant Pedro was also fantastic. They both managed to capture beautiful images without anyone noticing they were there. Our video turnaround was quick and absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I have watched it at least once a day! We truly enjoyed working with Michael and Pedro and would highly recommend Monachetti.

I really appreciate Monachetti Weddings for how they helped us make our wedding day one to remember, and also be able to watch! Thank you again Michael and team, we are both very appreciative for your hard work.

The videography was the easiest decision I made during my wedding process. Michael is great and any time I had a questions during the process he was able to get back to immediately. As soon as I saw Monachetti's work I was blown away and as soon as I had my wedding date picked out, I know who I wanted for my videography. It was their first time shooting an Indian wedding and they did such a great job and the video came out beautiful and they captured all the important steps that I wanted and on top of that the highlight video was just magical. I couldn't have asked anything else in a wedding vendor. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Michael!!

To put it simply, Monachetti is the best and has my highest recommendation.

I was referred to Monachetti by a friend who told me that if there was one thing she would spend money on again for her wedding it would be her videographer. She could not have given me better advice. I was impressed with Monachetti's responsiveness, professionalism and service from the first day I contacted them. They also worked closely with my father, answering all his questions and making sure he was comfortable with the contract, when and how they would be shooting their footage.

I did not meet face-to-face with Monachetti prior to the wedding but it did not matter. When they walked into the bridal suite on the day of I instantly felt at ease about being filmed and comfortable sharing our day with them. The videos of our wedding (bride/groom prep, the ceremony and reception) are incredible. I have received so many compliments on not only the quality of the videos but how they captured the emotion of the day as well.

We feel lucky and blessed to have worked with Monachetti.

Michael and Monachetti were punctual, professional, and produced VERY high quality work.

I have only good things to say about Monachetti videography. Monachetti is, without a doubt, head and shoulders above other videographers in the DC Metro area. Michael Eller is a creative genius, extremely professional, and a pleasure to work with. Whenever I meet someone who is newly engaged or planning their wedding, I immediately refer them to Monachetti videography. We love sharing our video with friends and family who were not able to attend our wedding. Most everyone gets teary eyed and/or is smiling ear to ear and really feels as if they were there. Our wedding video is truly a keepsake and a wedding dream come true!

Bottom line: Michael and pedro were professional, on time, an easy part of the wedding, relaxed, and fun! Bottom line on his product: go to his website, view the videos, you'll be hooked/sold after one!

Michael was wonderful! He was on time, ready to roll, and had been rolling even before I knew it, with his assistant Pedro! Michael was one of the aspects of our wedding that was easy and fun! He helped us pick out the songs to our movie and then showed up. I didn't have to coach him on specifics of where to be and when, which was nice considering all the mentors you do have to do that with, it can take a lot of time. Michael is a true artist, he knows he just needs to show up, get the raw footage (which was natural because he wasn't telling us what to do) and then work on his magic!. Another great thing about Michael is that he didn't tell us what to do, he just watched quietly and filmed. Another reviewer said you don't even know he's there, and this is nice because with all the photographers, caters, planners, and kids trying to get your attention, it was nice to have someone who got what he needed quietly and from a bit of a distance.


I have not yet seen our video, but I can not wait because I have seen all of his work, and every bit of it is magical! My friend said his videos look like a fairy tale ending in Hollywood movies! My friends and family are so excited about getting the movie back that one, they want us to pay to have it be longer than two songs, and two, they are going to throw a premier party to view it!

Michael was wonderful! He was on time, ready to roll, and had been rolling even before I knew it, with his assistant Pedro! Michael was one of the aspects of our wedding that was easy and fun!

I honestly don't even know how to begin saying how much I truly loved my video and all the aspects of it that gave me a chance to relive my big day!

First, let's start with the fact that I wanted no one else besides Monachetti to be creating my video. After countless hours of searching, I stumbled upon their work and I fell IN LOVE. I could not stop talking about how I MUST have Monachetti do my video and just like that, Monachetti became a household name. So when I contacted Mike (the amazing owner) and he said he was booked, you should have seen my heart drop, literally, I think it fell. But thank heavens, he said one of his associates could shoot it and I was a bit hesitant because I really wanted him to shoot it, but I did it, and MAN - I could not be happier that I did.

Brittany did an AMAZING job!!! The footage is spectacular and Mike's editing skills are PHENOMENAL! Our video montage captured every emotion that could happen in a wedding and gave me the happiness from that one day - back to me in 7 minutes. I truly am so thankful to Monachetti - Mike and Brittany and would tell anyone reading this to contact them IMMEDIATELY if you are even thinking about using them. Because they book quick and for damn good reason!

Seriously - contact them ASAP!!! Because they book FAST! I just got REALLY REALLY REALLY lucky!

Monachetti was amazing to work with. Michael met with us personally to discuss options that would work within our budget. He and his assistant shot the entire day and created a video that perfectly captured our personalities and the day. He was great to work with, was very responsive to emails and very professional. Michael and his team really have an eye for capturing moments and editing them into something so special. We are so happy that we hired Monachetti!!

As I was planning my wedding, I couldn't decide whether or not I needed/wanted a videographer. After a little research, I quickly determined that I either needed to splurge for Monachetti or not get a videographer at all- and Monachetti was well worth the splurge. As my friend and I watched sample wedding videos from countless other videographers, we quickly got bored and moved onto the next one- until we found (by the recommendation of my photographer) Monachetti. We spent hours watching amazing videos and I immediately knew I needed them to film my wedding! We met with Mike and he was extremely laid back and easy to talk to. He ended up giving me tons of wedding planning advice as well. In the months leading up to the wedding, he answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. The day of, we hardly noticed he was there! We were so excited to receive our wedding video, and are more than happy with the results. While other videographers only provide a long video of the entire wedding that you're very unlikely to go back and watch, Monachetti's "music video" style is much more preferable. The editing is amazing and really captures the key parts of the day. My husband and I look forward to watching our video on every anniversary to come!

Words cannot being to describe how amazing and talented Michael and Tyler are. In the beginning of the planning process I wasn't sure if we were going to book a videographer. Then I saw a video that Monachetti did for a friend, and we immediately booked them. I can say its without a doubt the best money we spent for the wedding. While pictures are amazing, Monachetti is really able to capture to feel of the day that you can relive again and again. The video is something I will cherish forever.

Michael and the rest of the crew from Monachetti are amazing! I watched so many of the videos before we met with Mike and I
knew from the start that I loved his style. When my husband and I met with him for the first time we knew right away we wanted him to
be our videographer. We loved that he was a small business and was personal and easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, I felt so comfortable in front of his camera, mainly because I didn't even know he was there! My husband and I LOVE our video.The little glimses of the day really help us to re-live that special day over and over again. We have shared the video with many of our family and friends and everyone has just gone crazy over it - it's that good! I definitely recommend Monachetti for any engaged couple looking for a beautiful, modern, documentary-style video.

Monachetti was one of the first vendors we had on the books for our May wedding (over a year in advance :-)) and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Mike and Pedro from the Monachetti team were our videographers for the day and it was such a pleasure to have them both there. We had a diy-focused wedding at home and since we didn't have a wedding planner Mike and Pedro were a huge help in keeping our day running smoothly, which is certainly not part of their job, but that's just the kind of outstanding guys they are. Throughout the day they were everything you could dream of in a videographer, they were always present and engaged in our big day but at the same time they were total wedding ninjas - never in the way, and always capturing the most amazing moments without interfering or having to direct. Our end product was outstanding, delivered to us super fast and the most perfectly on point reflection of our wedding and us as a couple. We have and will continue to recommend Monachetti to all of our friends, not only are they super talented but extremely kind and sincere and obviously passionate about their work. You won't regret having them as a part of your big day!

Their professionalism, talent and reliability are above and beyond! Monachetti is truly dedicated to making their clients happy! They exceeded our expectations and provided us with a unique, artistic, live memory of the most special day of our lives. They captured our day so beautifully, just as we remember it. Our videographer, Tyler was personable, on time, easy going, a pleasure to work with and extremely talented. Monachetti filmed my sisters wedding 2 years ago, and did an outstanding job then and blew us away once again, we didn't expect anything less than the best! I would HIGHLY reccomend this company!

When Kevin and I started planning our wedding, picking our Videographer was one of the first things we did. Without even researching we knew that we were going to use Monachetti. Michael Eller has been a close friend for over 20 years and I couldn't imagine trusting anyone else with filiming our wedding day. We worked very closely with Michael and Tyler of Monachetti and we are so happy with everything they were able to do for our wedding video. Tyler was able to capture every special moment with Kevin and I not even knowing he was around us. I am truly blessed to have a video so fit to Kevin and I's personalities. I would recommend Monachetti to EVERY bride and groom who hopes to relive their wedding day everytime they watch their wedding video.

It is hard to believe my husband and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary, but even one year later, there are details of our wedding that stand out as truly exceptional. One of those is Monachetti. While I had interviewed several videographers that I liked, I still wasn't sure that I wanted a wedding video. That all changed when we met with Mike. I loved his work, and our meeting and initial discussions confirmed he would be a great vendor to work with. From first meeting, Mike was professional and accommodating, responsive and flexible. His team proved to hold the same values and exhibit the same qualities that are so important when dealing with brides-to-be (and MOBs, too!). When we got our video, just a short time after the wedding, it exceeded our expectations. It was clear that the Monachetti team was just as talented as they were personable and professional.

My best friend is getting married in November, and when she asked if she should get a wedding videographer, my resounding response was YES!...as long as it was Monachetti. I am happy to say I will be seeing the Monachetti team again in just a few months. Even a year later, I am still ecstatic about my video. I could not be happier and could not give a higher recommendation to Monachetti. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Monachetti team!!

Monachetti was by FAR my favorite vendor from our whole wedding. We hired Michael Eller without meeting him just by watching his amazing videos on his website. Friends of ours had hired him for their wedding (which was a few months before ours) and once we started watching the videos, we knew we had to have him make one for us. My husband actually CRIED watching them. Usually he only cries when his favorite team is losing.

After hiring Michael, we met up with him for drinks to discuss the wedding and our preferences for our video. We felt SO comfortable with him- it felt like having a drink with a friend. We left almost everything up to him and we truly could NOT be happier with the finished product. Not only that, but everyone I show the video to (friends, family, etc) rave about his work. He truly captured the emotion of our day and our happiness better than we ever imagined, and far better than our still photos were able to capture.

Our wedding was 6 months ago, and we still watch our video weekly and it still makes me cry! Along with an approximate 10 minute highlight video of the whole wedding, he also sends a DVD with chapters for the whole day. Having this is invaluable. As the bride, I missed a lot of the ceremony. Being able to watch my whole family come down the aisle was amazing. I also love that we'll have our toasts from my father and our siblings on video forever.

Michael was extremely responsive and even "spliced" in a shot of one of our relatives that wasnt previously in the video. I absolutely loved working with him - it was probably the most seemless aspect of our wedding plans.

To this day, when I hear of someone getting married in the DMV, I tell them to hire Monachetti - we are SO happy we did!! Thank you, Michael!

Oh gosh, there's too much to say about Monachetti. I saw one of Mike's videos more than a year before my wedding, showed my fiance and we just had to have him shoot ours. After numerous emails, we found that we weren't only excited to meet the person who was to make our wedding film, but we were excited to meet a new friend. The Monachetti team were so awesome to have around on our wedding day that when we found ourselves nervous (especially with so many cameras around!) they helped ease and reminded us that the day was about having fun and being in love. And our video?! It's just perfect. They do such a great job documenting our day in a beautiful and artistic way. We love our video and watching our love story. Thank you Monachetti for sharing our day with us and giving us such a wonderful and touching memory of it!

We were awestruck! Monachetti's video is so much more than a visual depiction of what happened. It is a work of art that captured visually what the wedding experience felt like for us, which was incredibly intense. Monachetti chose truly beautiful and meaningful content and dispensed with the boring parts, as we're sure there had to have been many. At the event, our videographer was totally unobtrusive, just as one wants the videographer to be. Our interaction through the contracting and booking process was totally problem-free. We can't wait to share the video with our friends and family. We know we will watch it again and again into the future. It's exactly what we'd hoped to receive and more. We will definitely recommend Monachetti highly to our friends and colleagues and we wish them much continued success. Bravo, congratulations on a job exceedingly well done, and thank you.

Monachetti was great to work with! We couldn't have been more happy with our videos! Michael and Tyler shot and edited everything in the most beautiful, creative, and interesting way possible. Although all of my coworkers are familiar with the Women's Museum, after seeing the video, they asked where I had the reception because Michael and Tyler made it look a hundred times more beautiful. These guys really know how to compose a shot!!!

They have also mastered the arts of making your dorky facial expression appear endearing and editing out those moments no one wants to see on video. When I was getting ready, there were several times when I could have strangled my mother and my bridal party, but Michael and Tyler made me look really charming during the whole getting ready process :) And, on an embarrassing note, I had several dress malfunctions during the reception, but none of them made it into my video -- I couldn't be more grateful to Monachetti for that!

Lastly, this doesn't have anything to do with Monachetti's awesome work, but it merits mentioning. When my mom misplaced her diamond earrings, Michael helped us look for them until we found them!

These guys are the best. HIRE them!!

Our videographer was on time, very friendly and professional. We were impressed by the video. Monachetti has a neat style that reminds us of a music video. Everyone we have shown our video to says they wished they had a video just like ours of their day! We would highly recommend them!

Our experience with Monachetti was perfect from start to finish--from the super cool business card Michael handed us when we met him to the perfect videos that came as a result.

Michael was a ninja on our April 2010 wedding day. All dressed in black sneaking around so gracefully that no one even knew he was taping. I have been to weddings where the videog/photog are very invasive and I am happy to say he manages this like the pro he is.

I originally didn't want to hire a videographer because I did not want to see myself dancing on video. The editing done on the video showed us dancing and cut in and out so well that I actually looked like I have some moves!

Our video was posted very promptly and mailed to us in the contracted time. I believe it says we have a few thousand views on vimeo, my husband and I are probably about 1000 of those as we loved the video so much we watched it over and over.

The price was very reasonable for the product, he could charge double what he did and I would hire him again!

And lastly, Michael is just a cool guy. Hands down our favorite wedding vendor.

Mike did the videography for our Valentine's Day wedding, 2010. He did such an amazing job. Our video is complete so I can comment on the finished product. It really is something amazing and so unique. While watching our video, which came in an amazing DVD case that was customized with a picture we gave him from our wedding; we said time and time again, "did you know he was there"? There were moments where he had filmed the ceremony behind us and NONE of us saw him.. that in itself is a sign of a good videographer. Like I said the DVD case is extremely unique and is so much nicer than just a clear CD case. The unedited footage was a lot of fun to view as well and I am glad that he includes it on the DVD for us to watch. It is amazing what Mike can do by taking our preparation, wedding, and reception and putting it together in a 5-7 minute video that makes people feel like they were there for every second of it.

We had one problem the day of our wedding which was not in any way Mike's fault.... it was a problem with our photographer and because of our photographer Mike missed out on filming us while we were photographed outdoors in the snow. When we found out that the photographer had failed to communicate with Mike on what changes in our schedule she had made we were extremely upset because we were married in MD on V-Day and we had been having record snow. So depicting the snow that was around us was extremely important to the day and we wanted it recorded to show others what we went through to get married. Mike was so kind by editing our video to include photos of us in the snow in such a beautiful way that no one would have known this was not the original plan. So, I have to give Mike extra props for being willing to alter his original design to include this for us!

Thanks again Mike, we LOVE our video and you were so amazing to work with.

Love, love, love this mans work I have yet to see my video but I am so excited about it. I've seen Michael's work from other weddings and I cannot wait to have masterpiece to call my own! It was a pleasure to work with Michael, I booked him one year in advance and he kept in touch and really worked with me to ensure he captured every moment that was important to us. Michael was present during the ceremony and reception and yet he was able to capture special moments without overpowering the event with a huge camera in our faces at every turn. He has really mastered the fly on the wall technique which enabled him to capture people honestly with out breaking the moment. Michael was a pleasure to work with.

I don't really have the words to describe how pleased I am with the service provided to me by Monachetti. Great group of people, extremely professional, and responds so fast to all my questions. You basically hang out with your wedding videographer your entire weddingday, and I had no problem with it because they were just really-down-to-earth and fun guys. Aside from personality, they are ridiculously talented! I highly recommend them!

I remember the moment during walking around at the Baltimore Wedding/Bridal Convention when we knew we found our videographer. We walked past a booth towards the end of an overwhelming day where, honestly, all of the vendor booths started to run together and it took a lot to stand out from that crowd. We saw a big screen on the wall playing the most distinctive style of wedding video that we had ever seen. Both of our jaws hit the floor and we knew that we needed to learn more about this company. Their name is Monachetti and their videos and work are incomparable...their final product conveyed their passion for creating a cinematic and artistic memory. We worked with Michael Eller during the planning process and he makes it so effortless. His answer to every email and question was always “yes” and he was so great at making us feel like he was excited for our big day along with us. The day of the wedding, Mike also was our videographer and he really had a way of melting into the background and capturing every moment at the same time. We had such an incredible day and his ability to recreate our story in such a beautiful way that we can watch again and again was everything we were looking for, and so much more! We fell in love with our wedding video the first time that we watched it because they really painted such a clear picture of our day using all of the important moments and songs that felt like they were written with only our wedding video in mind. When you watch their videos, you can just tell how hard they work to make it all fit so perfectly. Our video was done quickly and he got our DVD copy out to us so fast because he really understands the positive anticipation that a recently married couple feels about getting their hands on those memories! Monachetti is so considerate of your needs/wants during the entire planning process and it was such a pleasure doing business with them. The style of our video alone sets it apart from all of the rest and we were elated to have them as part of our big day!

Monachetti has a unique, natural and artistic approach to wedding videography. We were happy with the flexibility of the owner who edited our video a few times to make it what we wanted it to be.

The downside of their service was that, because the owner was booked we ended up having one of his consultant's do the wedding videography at our wedding and she didn't get as much coverage as we would have liked. She completely missed getting my vows and only got the last sentence of my husband's vows on video, which was very disappointing. Also, a lot of the ceremony raw footage was shaky...

I think they have a neat, unique service, but I would make sure you know who will be shooting on your wedding day and tell them what you want included. I thought overall, their end product was not worth the price of the package.
