Mention Here Comes The Guide when you book MetMedia’s services, and they’ll turn your honeymoon photos (up to 60 images) into a complimentary animated video montage set to music and include it on your DVD (a $200 value).
MetMedia is proud to be one of the few video companies that focuses solely on weddings.
MetMedia’s signature high level of service goes way beyond what clients expect. Jonathan travels to meet with clients on weeknights in their homes. He attends the wedding rehearsal to learn every detail about each ceremony and to locate ideal camera positions.
Because Jonathan really gets to know his clients, he has a unique perspective that he brings to life on screen. “If the groom is not a ‘touchy-feely’ person and he starts hugging everybody—that’s a big deal. If I didn’t know him very well, it might not seem like an important shot.” Jonathan also believes that when a couple is comfortable with him, they allow those special spontaneous moments to occur while he captures the action undetected.
Jonathan is behind the camera at every wedding and does all of the editing. MetMedia tailors each video to meet the vision and personality of each couple. No two videos are ever alike, and MetMedia’s unique service allows couples to preview their video to make sure that everything is perfect before MetMedia masters their DVDs. All wedding videos are delivered on DVD as a standard part of their service.
Certified By The Guide Reviews(What does this mean?)
“It’s like a feature film and makes all other wedding videos out there look like home movies. No one else is remotely close.”
“By the time of our wedding, Jonathan felt like an old friend. We were hesitant about spending money on videography—my husband particularly. But when we got our video back and sat down and watched it, he was in tears. He said, ‘I know I was reluctant to do this, but how much would you pay to relive this most important day?’”
“Our finished product blew us both out of the water!”
“When it came time to get a videographer, we interviewed at least six different companies and felt like there wasn’t the connection we were looking for. Jonathan came to meet with us in the comfort of our home, and on our schedule, which is later in the evening. After talking to him for about five minutes, we knew he was our guy.”
“It’s amazing. We chose the music, but the way he used it to accentuate the film was amazing. When we’re feeling down, we just pop this video in. We’re so grateful to him. He’s incredible, incredible. If I passed him on the street I’d have to hug him.”
