MARK GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND!! This review is long overdue but I just finished watching the edited and raw footage that Mark has sent us and just...WOW!! I knew he did so much on the day of BY HIMSELF, but the footage was so great. He got so much detail! I hired Mark as a wedding present for my sister and I KNOW she won't be disappointed! He got so much that we didn't even think of mentioning to him to include. This man knows exactly what he is doing! Mark was great from the beginning! From being able to film my sister's wedding at 2 weeks notice after a last minute cancellation, to his excellent communication and suggestions for my sister's wedding, to his patience on the day of the wedding and being able to adjust to every last minute change. You can tell that this cinematographer has experience doing this and he knows exactly what to expect and what questions to ask when you are lost. EVERYONE was so pleased to have him at the wedding!! The guests thought it was so cool to have a DRONE at the wedding!! I only paid Mark for four hours but the wedding ceremony was a little behind schedule and he STILL suggested going to the reception to get the introduction of the Bride and Groom. This man was so amazing. He asked all the right questions and even asked if we wanted to get footage of the bride and groom reading each other letters in their hotel room before the ceremony, and that sparked the idea of having them add that to their wedding day itinerary. THEY LOVED THE IDEA and it CAME OUT SO BEAUTIFUL! Mark seems like the kind of man that has seen it all and done it all when it comes to weddings. He blended in so well with every setting. He knew exactly what to say in each situation and other times, you didn't know he was there because he was working and blending in so well! The footage Mark sent us transported us back to the day of the wedding. My family loved it so much and are still talking about Mark and his great work. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MARK! Each time I talk about my sister's wedding, I mention you and the detail you put into everything! You were even great at following up with me after the wedding and printing the DVD's and DVD cases with photos from the wedding, SO GREAT! My sister loves every bit of it! She was so happy with all the little details you captured! Thank you! Thank you!

I recruited FD Productions to capture, storyboard and depict a short film in the Los Angeles area for a film festival. Shaun and his team were beyond responsive, proactive and ready to film and capture our film within an extremely short time frame throughout different locations in the Greater Los Angeles Area. They met our budget restrictions and surpassed our expectations for every single shot we wanted captured. Their professionalism and editing capabilities were second to none and our film became a reality because of the drive of Shaun Khan and his fleet of drones. The cinematography captured was beyond mind blowing and set us completely apart from our competitors in the film festival we participated. If your seeking cinematic professional broadcast quality media, look no further...

We hired MANZO STUDIO on two separate occasions; the first being to film and photograph the engagement party for my fiance and I. Julia Manzo (the photographer) was absolutely amazing, and displayed the utmost professionalism the entire time - from arriving early, to taking amazing shots of EVERYONE, and working around the party and events....we never knew she was there! She managed to capture the most amazing moments that my family shared never once leaving us with a "boring" or "traditional pose" photo. The engagement party was a huge success. But even better - we found out Manzo and her staff were also fluent Spanish speakers, so we AGAIN hired them to shoot my niece's Sweet Sixteen. The party was in San Diego and the Manzo Studio Staff made the trip with no problem at all. Again, we were VERY happy with the results. We can't put over Manzo Studio enough. The highest recommendation.

I'm a realtor and have been using professional photographers and video producers for my listings on constant bases. These guys are my most fortunate discovery. Not only their shots and videos are superb, they're extremely flexible and customer service oriented. Considering I'm not the easy one to please wnen it comes to quality. Very happy!

I will update this review after I get the finished product from Grant, but I didn't want to wait to give him a positive review. Grant was able to work my wedding on very short notice after another videographer backed out. He was communicative, friendly, and accommodating before the event as we were negotiating our contract, and he was super easy to work with the day of. Grant worked well with our photographers and was able to get the footage he needed without getting in the way of pictures. He was extremely professional, laid back, and fun to be around, all at the same time. A rare combination. Again, I can't comment on the quality of his work just yet, but I can say that Grant was a pleasure to work with.
