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!

We spent many weekends at wedding events on the run up to the big day trying to find the most suitable photographer and videographer and we were ready to settle for the normal standard until we saw a video of a friends wedding that was at least 100 times better than anything else we had seen. It was like a long music video and we instantly thought while it would be incredible it would no doubt cost a fortune.

We contacted Nick and Maria and to our amazement their prices were the same as the boring old fashioned 'camera on a tripod for 3hrs' video that we'd seen elsewhere! We were so impressed we booked them for photos and video as Maria's photography is beautiful and of unique style that we knew would capture the happiness of the day perfectly.

On the run up to the wedding we were in constant contact and on the day they were awesome. Everyone commented on how professional yet friendly they were and how they seemed more like guests and we're not intrusive or bossy.

The photographs are exceptional and the video is something we watch every week and will continue to do so for a very long time. They captured every single detail of the day and pieced it all together to tell our beautiful story.

We seriously can't recommend them enough. What's lovely is that we didn't just get a photographer and a videographer, we got some new friends too.

From the first moment I contacted Studio1208 I could just sense they were amazing people, Maria & Nick not only made us the most perfect wedding film but all of our wedding guests commented how lovely they were.

I was In two minds about having our wedding filmed but turns out it was the best decision I could've made as I watch it now, almost a year later, the day just comes flooding back and it's such a beautiful film that still makes me laugh & cry!

Maria and Nick went out of their way to do their bit to make sure that our wedding day was fantastic. Not only were they a pleasure to have around - it felt like we had know them for ages - they were super professional and had already taken time the day before the wedding to scout the venue so that on the day they had a plan and were really efficient, which meant we didn't miss out on spending time with our family and friends. They were also completely unobtrusive so most of the guests didn't even notice that the film/photographs were being taken, this created some lovely natural images and really captured the true atmosphere of the day and the personalities of the guests.

The photographs and the film are absolutely beautiful, we couldn't be happier with them. They captured so many lovely moments and details from the day that have added to our happy memories. We are so glad that we booked Studio 1208 to document our wedding day and would recommend them very highly to anybody getting married.

The best word to describe Studio 1208 is Epic! From the moment you meet them they have this amazing ability to figure you out and your personality. Nick & Maria make you feel at ease meet and are very warm , friendly and don't push you into doing things you feel uncomfortable doing. Nick has an amazing talent of choosing the right music for your video. I seriously don't know how the dude does it? Maria has a beautiful spirit which comes across in her filming. They have an impeccable eye for a shot and we got some amazing footage for our film. It would be a dis-service to the industry saying that Studio 1208 are better than wedding photography/videographers, but they are amazing. You won't find a more welcoming, friendly, funny and super talented couple. Impeccable customer service along the way, you will not be disappointed if you booked with them. Studio 1208 are just hella cool!

Nick & Maria truly are the loveliest people you could ever wish for to shoot your wedding day. After meeting them for the first time we immediately knew we were in safe hands, they are extremely talented and professional and not to mention great fun to be around.

The whole experience from our first meet up to having them with us on the day to receiving the final film has been nothing short of perfect. They have given us something that truly is priceless and that's beautiful memories of our wedding day. We will be forever grateful to them.

Hire them; they are the best!

Not only did they blow us away with the photos, but both Nick and Maria were such a pleasure to have around on the day and we are just waiting for our next excuse have them take our pictures :D

FILM: www.marriageisthebomb.com/2012/12/we-had-really-really-really-good-time.html

Seeing the finished product was so special, like RELIVING EVERYTHING all over again, but through a crisp candy-coated, whimsical, dreamworld-like-magazine looking glass. Basically, we never imagined that everyone & everything could look SO beautiful and perfect, yet absolutely AUTHENTIC at the same time.

From the very beginning we knew Studio1208’s work was absolutely one-of-a-kind fluorescent AMAZINGNESS, but after everything, we must say that Maria & Nick truly OUTDID themselves–every detail, moment, emotion, & person near & dear to us–they managed to capture in THE MOST beautiful way! We are so thankful to them from the sincerest place in our hearts for putting so much TIME & especially, LOVE, into the masterpiece videos and photos they created for us. They went the extra mile and then some to make everything as special as possible.

They seriously don’t just capture a wedding, or a photo, or a video, they capture stories and when you look at their work, you feel like you are actually there & that you’re part of the story and that you know all these people–it’s incredible & an absolute gift. You get drawn in and experience every emotion. They manage to freeze time, youth, & memories in the moments & events that mean most to people like us, all over the world. Making & leaving their everlasting heart-print in people's lives, one photo & one video at a time. We hope that they never stop creating & inspiring!

Check out Studio1208.com––you'll be absolutely glued to your computer screen in awe of their work. The fact that Maria and Nick are a husband-wife duo also compliments their work, in addition to being the nicest/funnest couple you will ever meet, they are absolute masters of their art. We HIGHLY (to the moon) RECOMMEND that you consider them to capture your story too. Best decision you will ever make

Basically, we never imagined that everyone & everything could look SO beautiful and perfect, yet absolutely AUTHENTIC at the same time.

From the very beginning we knew Studio1208’s work was absolutely one-of-a-kind fluorescent AMAZINGNESS, but after everything, we must say that Maria & Nick truly OUTDID themselves–every detail, moment, emotion, & person near & dear to us–they managed to capture in THE MOST beautiful way! We are so thankful to them from the sincerest place in our hearts for putting so much TIME & especially, LOVE, into the masterpiece videos and photos they created for us. They went the extra mile and then some to make everything as special as possible.

They seriously don’t just capture a wedding, or a photo, or a video, they capture stories and when you look at their work, you feel like you are actually there & that you’re part of the story and that you know all these people–it’s incredible & an absolute gift. You get drawn in and experience every emotion. They manage to freeze time, youth, & memories in the moments & events that mean most to people like us, all over the world. Making & leaving their everlasting heart-print in people's lives, one photo & one video at a time. We hope that they never stop creating & inspiring!

Check out Studio1208.com––you'll be absolutely glued to your computer screen in awe of their work. The fact that Maria and Nick are a husband-wife duo also compliments their work, in addition to being the nicest/funnest couple you will ever meet, they are absolute masters of their art. We HIGHLY (to the moon) RECOMMEND that you consider them to capture your story too. Best decision you will ever make Read less

What can I say, they have given my husband and I the best gifts we can think of, UNBELIEVABLE photos and video. I mean UNBELIEVABLE. Every person who has seen our photos or videos always asks us who did them, and I am so proud to say Nick and Maria of Studio1208. They are two of the coolest, best, most creative, people I have ever met. They listened to us, came up with great ideas, and their work proves it.

Additionally, what I think is great about their package besides being husband and wife, is that you get three amazing things. Unreal photos, a short "video trailer" that preludes your full film (how unique!), and full film that leaves your speechless. Honestly.

They are great, and I whole heartedly give them 5 stars. You should email them immediately, so stop reading this and email them....now.

Maria is and amazing photographer/cinematographer and great person, she understands what key moments need to be captured on the special day. Most people will know Maria as a photographer but she showed her amazing versatility by shooting the video of our wedding day. Maria comes from a fashion background so she ensures the brides are captured in the perfect way and us guys don't look to shabby either! Always the first people that jump to mind when I hear someone I know is getting married! 100% best in the business.

For all the time and effort spent in planning a wedding, there is truly no way of knowing someone’s character and ability until the big day arrives. For anyone reading this review and in need of a photographer/videographer, know and trust that you will not find more professional, talented, kind and warm-hearted individuals than Maria and Nick of Studio1208.

Nick and Maria are true artists who understand their craft but most importantly understand people. When difficult moments arose, Nick and Maria were there with a comforting smile and ready to get the job done no matter the circumstance. They were our wedding super heroes! Both our families and my husband and I will be eternally grateful. The unexpected events that took place at our wedding would challenge even the most seasoned veterans in the industry. However, if it were not for the Nick and Maria, our nuptials would have likely been a disaster.

Our wedding was a multi-faceted affair that would include multiple locations and an indoor/outdoor reception. Despite our best efforts and detailed planning, nothing could have prepared us for our wedding planner "dropping the ball" on the day.

However, regardless of the hurdles Nick and Maria handled everything with poise and took charge when needed. They went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of and most importantly, through all the madness, they reminded us of what was truly important. Their work will tug at your heartstrings and their kindness will make them forever your friends.

When I look back at the moments that Nick and Maria captured, and how they captured them, it fills me with tears of joy. Outside of actually getting married to my wonderful husband, they were and are by far the best decision we ever made.

It's rare that I rate anyone to the fullest rank possible as I believe that there's always room for improvement. With Studio1208 I found it hard not to. We received their link from a friend. Since we had a destination wedding (live in CA, married in Italy), we did our share of research - random options in Italy, flying US-based photog's to Italy, etc. After perusing their site, we emailed to discuss availability, costs to fly them from UK-Italy, room & board, budget, etc. They were unbelievably understanding with our concerns, wants & ideas. They suggested a Skype session to chat on a more personal level. We Skyped for about 30min (sometimes re.nothing wedding-related). Afterwards, we knew there was no other option for us but Studio1208. They offered laughter, calmness, confidence, professionalism & flexibility. After all, their website already proved they were well beyond "capable", but what we were looking for was the right "fit". They're so amazing, I think they could/would "fit" with any of their clients no matter how they differed. As the wedding approached, they were in touch often & went over all details to ease our worries. They spent the first few days in Italy scouting "spots" so the day of the wedding was seamless & fun. They were a joy to work with. Professionals, light-hearted & creative. We made a last minute decision to add videography & they were quick to change gears w/o a hiccup. What a difference to have both still photos & video (really, it's a short film-video doesn't define it properly)! The photos froze our very special moment in time. The video's brought it all to life w beautifully fitting music. Needless to say, choosing Studio1208 is one of the best decisions we made. Not only were they able to document everything exactly the way we'd hoped (even far beyond what we expected), but they became friends that we keep in touch with to this day. We are so grateful to them & are so happy we have formed a wonderful friendship for years to come.

Maria & Nick, are an incredible awesome duo - their creativity and professionalism is matched by their incredible talents and contagious enthusiasm.

Everyone at my wedding fell in love them, yet not once did it feel like an intrusion - they became part of the wedding party! The final product, was more emotional, beautiful and thoughtful than I could have imagined - it blew us away - and not just my family and I, but also strangers I meet at parties who tell me that our wedding video made them cry!!
I don't know how they managed to capture so much, and so well - I can only put it down to the fact that they are so insanely talented it should be illegal.

Also, on a more heartfelt note, our wedding day was fraught with emotion as my dad was terminally ill, and I can't thank Nick & Maria enough for treating him and us with such wonderful kindness and sensitivity - they managed to capture my father and his speech in a way that I will forever be grateful for. They really captured his spirit, and his humour, as well as the love we all shared, it fills me with joy that I'll be able to show my children such a true representation of their grandfather, and of our wonderful wedding day - which is why I could never put a value on how important our film is, it's priceless to me.

There are a lot of people out there who make videos, but Studio1208 make films, and I've yet to meet anyone who puts so much thought into crafting such personal and beautiful stories, not just within the film itself, but even the exquisite cases they arrive in - you'll never have seen anything like them.

Nick & Maria really do care about everyone of their couples, and that is what makes them so special, and you can see that in every one of their films, and that's why I'd not just recommend them, but insist that if you're considering a photographer or videographer that you call them, immediately. xxx

As the father of several brides, I know how important it is to invest in photography and videography to memorialize your daughter's wedding day. So much goes into the planning... the details... and then the actual wedding day goes by so quickly! Without the film that Nick produced or the images captured by Maria, I would have missed so many once-in-a-lifetime moments! These are keepsakes - the only part of the wedding that lasts beyond the wedding day (besides the love), and I can't tell you how often we enjoy reviewing them. Of all of the expenses of my daughter's weddings, there is no greater value than the money we spent on getting the best photography and videography - Maria and Nick at Studio 1208! I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to remember their special day (or that of a daughter) with all of the joy and wonder of those might-have-been-forgotten moments that will always be remembered.

"We were introduced to Studio 1208 when our original videographer cancelled on us. We were gutted, and thought this was one of the worst things that could possibly happen. Ironically, we now think this was the best thing that happened to us! I thought we were going to be looking for another videographer and photographer for months, but as soon as we met Nick and Maria, we knew we wanted them to do our wedding. They were so flexible, there were no time limits, they simply said, we come at the beginning of your day and we leave at the end. I thought their work was amazing.

Our friends and family advised us not to have a video, as we would never watch it, but what Nick and Maria put together is so watchable – we have watched it a thousand times over! The photographs they took are equally amazing, and I honestly cannot remember them being there most of the day – I don’t know how they got the photographs they did without us knowing. We still say our videographer cancelling on us was the best thing that happened to us.

Studio 1208 was absolutely incredible during our magical wedding weekend.
Great photography and videography was the most important thing on my wedding wish list, and hiring studio 1208 was the best decision we made. They were beyond easy to work with, true professionals, and flexible with the many personalities and opinions thrown their way. Maria and her team captured every moment that mattered most to us, and then she truly surprised us with a few magical shots that I didn't anticipate. Nick and his team put together a masterpiece that I will cherish for years to come- I still cry every time i watch his work starring us (it was more like a movie then wedding film). I am over the moon and the positive feedback from friends, family and the press has been overwhelming. They are one in a million, and the easiest decision I ever made!
please feel free to get in touch if you have any specific questions- happy to be a reference for Studio 1208.
Best,
Kim and Bryan K.
