Hi, we are Nick Maria. A husband and wife team that love photo and video and telling stories. We met at a bar in Hollywood, called 86. We got married. We had a baby, and this year we relocated to the UK. We both started out in the fashion industry and lived together in downtown Los Angeles in a huge open loft with our dog, Luda. We lived in Apartment number 1208… hence the name. We love Weddings, we love Engagements – I guess we just love…well…. love!

Maria was Production Coordinator for notorious photographer, David LaChapelle and went on to win VH1’s reality photography show ‘The Shot’, in 2007. Since then, she has been busy shooting editorials, look-books and even covers for Victoria’s Secret. She specializes in making beautiful things look even more beautiful, and brings an experienced high fashion eye and edge to all her work. She has also trained as a high-end retoucher. Check out Maria’s other work here.

I am a musician, producer, composer and videographer. I composed music for films, and then decided that I loved the creativity of actually making video. I started out shooting behind the scenes fashion films, promo campaigns and music videos; and now, well I love it more than coffee (and that’s a lot!)

So, why Weddings you ask? Well, we found it REALLY hard to get exactly what we wanted for our own Wedding. We didn’t want the traditional ‘Wedding’ shots. Some people love it, but it wasn’t our style. We wanted someone to come and tell our story – to capture all of the details and the feel of that special day on film. To have a creative and personal way to look back at our Wedding.

So, we decided to set up STUDIO 1208 to offer that same custom, creative and special experience that we wanted, to others. If you want to capture your Wedding and Engagement with all the glamour and detail of the high fashion world, while making sure the heart and soul of you and your guests is documented…. then Call us! Email us! Send us a smoke signal! We travel worldwide, from Costa Rica, to California, to Cheshire!

Simply put, Studio 1208 is da bomb!! If you are looking for a truly personal, unique and custom tailored photography/videography, there really isn't any where else you should be looking. My wife Priscilla and Maria actually go way back, way back to grade school, but lost touch, and were reunited through our wedding day. My wife had seen some of the work they had done and was completely enamored by what she saw, as was I. The artistic style and unique flare they had in their photos and videos were just unlike anything else we saw. They had this uncanny ability to capture every weddings spirit and translate it through their work. Pictures and a video are nice and all, but it's rare that you can find artists that are not only able to capture great pictures and shots of you, but can draw out and capture every emotion you were feeling, so that when you look back, it rekindles all the emotions you were feeling on that glorious day.

They take the time to ask you all the right questions, spend time with you, understand you two as individuals and as a couple so that they can really capture and piece together moments and memories that are you, and not of you. What I liked about their approach is that our wedding day wasn't just a special day for us, it was a special day for them as well. It is a chance and moment in time that they got to know us and make a stronger connection, which is evident in their work.

Nick & Maria are fam to us!! They are two of the most wonderful and amazing people we have met, and we are lucky to have them as part of our lives.

Well, where do we start! We were so lucky to find and meet studio 1208 in the first place from a trailer we saw through friends and everything from there on was just meant to be! Nick and Maria were able to photograph and shoot our wedding and were AMAZING from start to finish. From the moment Nick and Maria arrived they brought an energy to our wedding and we had every confidence in their abilities as photographers. Our photographs are memories that we will cherish forever and they were able to think outside the box and produce stunning and breathtaking photographs for us to admire for years to come, not forgetting an AWESOME video! They are a couple that fitted right in with us and our family and friends which made it feel as though we weren't being filmed or photographed at all which was amazing as it just felt natural as they became part of our group and now our friends. They worked so hard to give us the greatest memories and we can not thank them enough.
I have to say we are incredibly envied by friends and family for being able to have had studio 1208 photograph our wedding day. We had the perfect day, and If we were to relive it again, we would choose them EVERY time, and can never recommend them enough to others. Their work speaks for itself and they are just made to what they do, and that is capture love, the moment and everything in between.

I met Nick and Maria at my best friend's wedding - and knew as soon as I saw her video and photos that I would use them for my own wedding.

Nick and Maria make everyone feel at ease, and because of that they get the best photos - of you and your guests. Everyone said to me just how perfectly they fit in - apart from the fact that they have great chat and are so lovely, you wouldn't know there was a photographer and videographer at your wedding. Until you get the amazing results in the post that is!

Nick's videos are well beyond other wedding suppliers - just a different league, and something we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. And Maria's photos just capture everything that we want to remember about the day - laughter and smile and joy. Wonderful.

Thank you both so much Nick and Maria - we couldn't be happier! xx

Going with Maria and Nick, aka Studio 1208, as our videographers was one of the best wedding-related decisions we made.

We were looking for a videographer leading up to our wedding and I happened to bump into a co-worker, who had gotten married in Italy and recommended Studio 1208 for our video. We'd already searched high and low, looked at websites and watched so many wedding vids that really all looked the same and started to blur together. It was always the same cheesy-ness.

But not Studio 1208. After watching just a couple of Studio 1208's videos I could tell that these two were doing something different and unique. What they do, and what they did for us, was tell our unique and special story, in a way that reflects us.

They put their heart and soul into it, and so much artistry. One small example is this. We got married in Edinburgh Scotland and they arrived the day before to scope out spots to shoot B-roll or additional footage. They found a ferris-wheel type ride that had been erected just blocks away from the hotel and suggested that we go (with me in my wedding dress, and yes on our wedding day) ride on the wheel as a fun visual element and story line of our wedding video. They didn't know this at the time, but we'd done the same thing, ridden a ferris-wheel, on our 3rd date. What a coincidence, and us on the wheel became the a central theme and part of our wedding video.

That kind of creativity, thoughtfulness and sense of adventure is why I love them and their work. We're so happy with our wedding video and have recommended them to every couple we know who is getting married. I can't even express in words what an amazing job they did with telling our story and how in love we our with our wedding videos, thanks to Studio 1208. I highly recommend them to ANYONE looking for incredibly talented, fun and creative people to capture your special day. (Would've gone with them for photo too but had already booked that vendor.) Hire Studio 1208 now!

The wedding Video (and photo's) that STUDIO 1208 provided temporarily made us famous. For several months after our wedding, people would stop us at parties or even in the street to say they had seen our wedding video on the internet. The constant flow of compliments and 'Wedding Love' started to go to our heads and for a short while we felt like Beyonce and JayZ. As with all '15 minutes' of fame moments our lives did return to normal but the video still plays a huge part in our lives and is of course all you have left of your wedding day once it is over. We often sit down to watch it, and I especially find it useful to watch after an argument to remind yourself why it was you got married in the first place (only joking, but watching it does make you fall in love all over again). Unfortunately all my friends and family have started to mention that they want to book STUDIO 1208 for their own weddings, this means for me that my moment in the limelight is truly over and its time for me to allow STUDIO 1208 to create a blockbuster movie moment for somebody else. I don't like this, but have finally realised its not all about me. This is though the cruel way in which STUDIO 1208 work, the service and product they provide is so FABULOUS and UNIQUE it does take some getting used to once they have gone. I left me wanting them to continue documenting my world for the rest of my life, just like the kardashian's. Not everyone is as self obsessed as me, so you could be OK. I will always follow STUDIO 1208 on every social media site available and continuing to watch their sensational work, I'm fascinated by how INCREDIBLY talented they are. STUDIO 1208 are without fail the best investment I made on my wedding day and after all the money is spent this is one of the only things that remains with you forever. Don't scrimp on these details or rely on a Uncle to capture your big day, not using STUDIO 1208 will be your only regret if you do. Lizzie Clarke

My wife saw one of Maria and nicks trailers on a wedding blog and she fell in love straight away, me on the other hand was a little sceptical but that lasted all of 2 minutes after meeting them before the wedding at a cool East London cafe.
They are two super cool interesting people and great fun to be around I really think they made our wedding what it was thank you both so much.

Working with Studio 1208 for both parts of my wedding ( which were in Miami & England) was a DREAM. They have such a wonderful level of energy and enthusiasm. They fit right in perfectly with everyone and were able to make us all feel at ease and therefore capture such personal and special moments. They also spent the next day shooting with us which was amazing. Maria has such a talent of capturing natural moments, expressions and the overall feel of the day and Nick’s videos are epic... so different and beautiful, telling such a wonderful story of the people, the place and emotions of the day. I highly recommend them to anyone planning their wedding. They are a perfect team and work so hard to make sure that the photos and video you take away from this day are beyond amazing!!

Nick and Maria were excellent throughout. From the moment we made initial contact right up to delivery of products ie video and photos. The emails before which organised the photos for us into groups as well as asked us who we wanted the cameras to focus on more were very helpful. On the day they were so into it It felt like they were good friends of ours who really cared about things doing the job. Plus they are both so cool and a pleasure to have around it is effortless! Not to mention the post wedding shout outs on social media. Will definitely ask them again to capture future events/milestones!
