The one thing I loved about vide occasions was that had photographers who had their own companies who also worked as photographers at vide occasions. So I only had to book one company and ended up getting two vendors. Both the videographer and photographer were very very nice. They did not get in the way of anything between getting ready and the reception. However... They are very very hard to contact. It took me two months to get in touch with somebody to set up my engagement photos. I still have not received the dvd with all the photos on it either. I was also told that I would have both my video and photos within thirty days of getting married. I am past the thirty day mark and have yet to receive anything. I called multiple times, left messages, and even emailed. I finally got a hold of somebody who is mailing me my photos. I still do not have the videos or the photo album picked out that I paid for. The only thing they had going for them was being nice people other than that I am not happy that I was told one thing and it was not followed through.

The absolute worst vendor I've EVER dealt with. The video we received was not even close to what we ordered. We had 9 hours of coverage for all of the raw footage. What we received was less than 2 hours and the first half hour of it was just video of our photographer taking pictures of us. There was only an hour and 30 minutes of coverage of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. It was pathetic. The biggest moments of the night weren't even on there. I immediately contacted Matt, the owner, and he seemed surprised and told me he'd get right back to me... NOPE. After two times talking to him he started ducking my calls and stopped responding to emails. I had to start calling from different phone numbers to get him to pick up. This guy is a scam artist. Finally I had to contact Visa and file a complaint against him. Apparently many people have had to do the same, just do a google search and you'll see the reviews. He puts on this nice front, but he's not a good guy. DO NOT DO USE THEM!!!

******** 0 STARS ******After reading other reviews i really want to cry, this company was great in the beginning and im now still living a nightmare!!! I wish i read reviews before i booked them. its now been 9 months and i still dont have the final product of my wedding video. i have spoken to "bosses" etc.. it does not get you anywhere but the run around. one excuse was someone was fired and they are short staffed. at least around the 7th month they would still answer their phones. now, you can NOT get any one to pick the phone up. ive left messeges, some calm and some irate with frustration, and still nothing. I want my things back like my only wedding invitation i gave them to use for the final video and my only copy of ceremony video. I DO NOT recommend them at all, they area a bunch of con artests that will have you believe they are awesome. THEY SUCK! its a headache and stressful process with them. they honestly might be out of business and i dont even know yet! but if you dont want to get arrested like i probably will when i make a personal appearence, THEN DONT BOOK THEM! ONLY vendor i have had a problem with.

Really wanted them to do a good job as my wife's family is from Franklin Lakes and you route for the local businesses. But CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED. Despite their initial friendliness, as soon as the contract was signed it has been an absolute joke how bad this business is. Here are the highlights:

1) we were married in August 2013 and despite all our efforts to get our video from them over the past 6+ months, they haven't even STARTED it. It's now May 29, 2014. My mother in law got so fed up a month ago that she threatened legal action and they agreed on an absolute deadline. That deadline was 2 weeks ago and a few days after that Matt, the owner, called to say he lost the scene selections and musical choices that my wife provided to him sometime in fall 2013 and that she would have to resend. She spent hours on it, and clearly he hadn't even started the video despite the legal threats. And well now

2) 1 week before the wedding he changed the videographer on us to someone whose work we had not seen. A total unknown.

3) the joker who they sent at the last minute showed up to the wedding an hour late

4) due to a stomach bug, my mother in law fainted during the ceremony. Was scary at the time. This guy decides its appropriate to get up close to her and film it. I had to hell him to scram and what was he thinking?

If you read this and still use them, you deserve what's coming to you. But at least require some modifications to the contract that dictate what THEY have to do for YOU.

We used Videoccasions to film our wedding day on July 13, 2013. We met with Matt, the owner, about 6 months prior to our event. He showed us some samples and thoroughly explained every detail of filming our big day. Prior to the wedding, Matt called us to go over specific details. We were so excited to see that Matt was actually the one filming our wedding. He arrived extra early to the church and filmed everyone coming it. It was so fun to watch the video and see all of the guests and what the church looked like before the ceremony. He captured everything perfectly. The audio is flawless and you can see the emotion of the day. He continued to film through all of the pictures, cocktail hour, and reception. We just watched the video last night and were blown away at everything he filmed. We didn't even remember half of it!

Matt checked in with us before he left the reception and made sure there wasn't anything else we wanted him to film. He was so nice and accommodating all day.

We also got our video back SO fast! Many of my friends have told me it took months to get theirs from other companies--not the case at all with Videoccasions. The video itself is beyond amazing and really made us feel like we were reliving the day.

Thank you Videoccasions for capturing the best day of our lives perfectly. I'm so happy we added a video package to our event--you will regret it if you don't!

We worked with the owner from day 1. He was all smiles and put on a wonderful show about how we can feel comfortable about his company and that they will do a great job on our wedding video. The month before our wedding, we could not get a hold of him. A few weeks before he stated that he was in a bad boat accident and apologized. We found this was untrue later on. Tim was great the day of the wedding, he came on time and everything was fine. When we got back from our honey moon 2 weeks later we tried to contact Videoccassions, but didn't hear until 3 months later when we received the raw footage. We were told that once we handed in the paper work it will take 6 months to finish the final edit (we thought that was longer then other friends, but we said okay). 6 months later came and still no video. We found out that the owner fired our editor (and his secretary) and didn't tell us that we were getting a new editor. He admitted to us that our video was not given to the new editor until less than a month before the due date. The only way we were able to contact the owner was actually showing up without notice. He said that proof of work would be sent that night or we would get a partial refund. Guess what?? He didn't send it and didn't return our emails again. We showed up at his office the next day and he said we would not receive a refund and stormed out to his car. DO NOT USE THEM, THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY! This is the only vendor we had any issues with. You have been warned!

I'm a former employee of this company and I STRONGLY suggest you stay away from this company. Matthew Riccardi is irresponsible and does not care about his customers. It's been nine months since I left and I have had 36 clients call me with the same story that he dropped of the face of the earth, closed the company, and went into bankruptcy. I called Matt several times to tell him about these clients and he told me, "I don't give a $#%^ about those people." This is a horrible company be warned!

Videographer was great, showed up and did his thing but it has been absolutely horrible in trying to get the final video. The owner, Matt, constantly makes up things to say why it is delayed and overall the company seems very unorganized. His employees have told us conflicting stories about the status of our video. We even caught Matt in a lie and he still insisted he was telling the truth after ample proof. Doesn't return calls or emails. Very unprofessional to work with. It's great that they showed up but it would be nice if we could actually see what we paid for. Use someone else if you can.

I'm a former employee of this company. I'm writing this because it's been 9 months since I left the company and I just had the 36th client call me with the same exact story that Matt Riccardi screwed them out of money and most importantly their weddings. He closed the company, went into bankruptcy, and will not respond to any contact attempts. I called Matt to tell him he has to answer these people and he told me out right, "I don't care about them," but it was said in a much more explicit way. While working there I saw Matt take money from clients and openly admit he was not going to do the wedding and his contract protected him from legal action. Three clients have kept me up to date that they sued him, won and he took off and they can not get retribution from him. Please stay away.
