Monachetti - All I can say is WOW!

You know, after a 2 yr engagement and 9 months of blogging about DC area weddings and vendors it's not often that I come across something that blows me away anymore. Well, thanks to Laura and her blog I have been incredibly impressed with the talent of Mike at Monachetti.

When we began planning, Fiance and I briefly considered and then disregarded the idea of a videographer for our wedding. Why? Well for one thing videography can cost up to $10,000 (yes!) in the D.C. area and honestly I wasn't all that impressed. The cheaper vendors were cheesy and even the work of the more expensive videographers seemed very contrived to me. It was all kind of overly dramatic, slow motion shots that just didn't fit me or what I wanted my wedding to be.

I briefly flirted with the idea of 8mm films but there weren't many vendors in the area offering this service (if you are interested check out In Films - packages starting at $2,000 and Layer Cake Films- packages starting at $2,300) . And with so many other things to pay for I just couldn't convince Fiance that this was a necessity.

I can honestly say now, though, that if I could chose anyone to film our wedding it would be Monachetti. Just watch these two sample clips and tell me you aren't totally IN LOVE.

The Wedding of Amy and Casey



The Wedding of Shannon and Matt


Mike is really kind, and his prices are consistent with quality DC area videography (don't worry, he's no where near $10,000!). He's also willing to negotiate with price.

What appeals to me most is that his films look like a beautiful documentary of your day and not like the "Hollywood production" of your day. Nothing contrived here. He also has great taste in picking really unique music that creates the right vibe for your video.

Be sure to check out all the clips on his site under "video". The two I featured above are black and white, which I happen to prefer, but if you want color he has done plenty. Of the color films, I liked "Sarah and Stephen" because the bride has beautiful red hair and the ending was so happy it made me smile.

I don't know why I hadn't heard of Monachetti before (i haven't seen him on/in the knot boards, dcknottiereview, weddingwire, Washingtonian Weddings, blogs, or the usual wedding magazines) but this Gem is a secret no longer!

I can't agree more with your assessment. What is it about every other videographer that they do everything in slow motion and set up every shot as if the couple were actors.

I do wedding videos myself (montaukmotionpictures.com) and I really admire monachetti. Everybody I've shown them to loves it.
It takes a sort of courage to decide you are going to make a totally unique video using your own music and style. It is too easy to use steady cams, slow motion, and country music.

These guys should be booked every week.
