Stephen & Crew, Thank you so much for capturing so many of our special moments on our wedding day! You were the first vendor we booked after getting engaged and have been so excited to work with you!
Thanks for helping make our day so special!
Abby & Kane Bechstein

To the whole Montoto Production Crew. We could not have asked for a better cinematography company to film our big day. The preview of walker seeing me for the first time, was priceless and so beautiful! It makes us even more excited to see the trailer and full day!

Thank you again, The Gambles

You made our wedding video almost 7 years ago. It was the most amazing thing! We watched it repeatedly over that first year. As the years went on and life got hectic it was put away with all the other dvd’s. Fast forward to now…my husband and I have a 5 year old daughter, Emma. She asked me about our wedding and I went dig out that DVD to show her. She was in awe, as I was all over again. She asked how we got to get married in a movie!! She watched it over and over again all day. It made my heart happy to have her watch it and have her feel the excitement of that day. It was because of that video that she was able to feel like she was there too! Thank you for giving us an amazing memory to share with her!

Well Stephen, I guess I held back all my tears on the day of the wedding only for them to be unleashed now!! Haha definitely had me crying the whole time with a smile on my face. Can’t wait to surprise Jimmy tonight when he gets home! And omg, how about those ACCENTS though!!! Hahaha “tick tick” (thick thick) as said dtb (down the bayou). We were so blessed to have y’all both with us capturing this gorgeous, Oscar worthy film! I knew it would blow away my expectations… Certainly the best keepsake!! I’ll be letting everyone know to check it out and like it! Thank y’all again!!! Y’all are blessed with endless talent.

With love and thanks,
Demi & Jimmy Matherne

Stephen, you and your team were so accommodating and patient the entire day. We want to personally thank you for your presence. We never had to look for you or wonder where you were. You were there every step of the way to capture all of our special moments and we are so grateful for that. Thank you for your professionalism and creativity and we can’t wait to see our rehearsal dinner and wedding day videos!
Will and Omishan Williams

Hi Stephen,

We received the DVDs today and just watched–WOW! We loved the trailer, but we can’t even express how perfect the feature and the rest of the footage is! Your team captured the day so wonderfully, and it is such an amazing feeling to see everything from our wedding day come together exactly how we planned. You all have a true talent and we are forever grateful! We will definitely be recommending your services!

Thanks again so much!

Maddy and Ryan Aldridge

Stephen,

I can’t even begin to thank you for this priceless memory you have given us. It’s absolutely incredible to watch this and relive the experience in such a beautiful way. You truly do amazing work and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. I just got the shipping notification for what I assume is the rest of your work. I am sure you will leave us speechless. Thanks again!!

-The Sevin’s

Just received our full wedding video and —

Wow!! Sitting here with tears streaming down my face. I cannot thank y’all enough for capturing our big day. The videography is just brilliant. From the filming to the music, I could not ask for more. Thank you for such an heirloom that we will always treasure. I cannot tell you what a special gift you have given us, priceless.

A most sincere and heartfelt thanks,

Abagail and Phillip Washington

Stephen.  I think now I’m on my 100th watch and I LOVE it more each time. As Emily’s mom, I couldn’t be more pleased with what you have produced. You have captured so much joy, fun, and happiness and I am so appreciative.  I really cannot compliment you enough for so many reasons and on so many levels. I remember how kind you were throughout the weekend and you have reflected such warmth and thoughtfulness in this video. Obviously I could go on and on but will excitedly wait for the finished product. I hope you will video my other girls’ weddings whenever that might be!!!!  As Emily said “this was the best money we spent”!!!! Totally agree.  Take care and again ️thankyou.

Missy Lowder

I just want you to know, we cannot stop watching the video.
You captured everything so extraordinarily well, and the music is perfect! It is exactly what I was hoping for and so much more. Thank you. It is such a daunting task to choose the right people to capture your once in a lifetime day. You only get it once. You have exceeded all my hopes and expectations. We wavered on the need of cinematographer and ultimately determined the cost a worthy investment!
Heaven kissed earth that day for us and you captured it and bottled it for us to have always. What a sacred gift. We are eternally Grateful.
Michelle & Ryan Graham

Stephen,

Andrew and I couldn’t be happier with our wedding video. We have enjoyed watching it over and over again as we share it with our friends and family, and it has made a lot of people cry (in a good way). We really feel like you captured our personalities and the uniqueness of our special day. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! We really appreciate it. Several of our friends and relatives have told us that it is the most beautiful and well-done wedding video they have ever seen. You and your team have truly raised the bar when it comes to shooting wedding films. Our video is definitely the quality of any Hollywood movie, and we couldn’t be happier with how it came out! Thank you so much again, and we are so glad we chose you to be our wedding videographer!
Katie and Andrew Majeste
Hey Mr. Stephen!

I want to thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us. Although I knew our video would come out amazing by simply viewing your work on the website, you have surprisingly found a way to surpass our (already high) expectations. The videos you have sent to us are unbelievably beautiful. We’re so excited about them & have already started sharing them with family and friends! Everyone is telling us that it looks more like a movie. They love it! Although I happily sent out reviews about your company to The Knot & Wedding Channel, you’re work truly speaks for itself. You have quite an eye for capturing those special little moments. Your kindness and professionalism did not go unnoticed either. We are so thankful for your service and are thrilled about the result of our video : ) We just wanted you to know how much we appreciate it all and that we will not hesitate to recommend you to all family and friends that get married in the future. By the way, my little sister, Hillary just got engaged : ) My poor dad haha. If there is anything we can do for you to help—send more reviews or if you would like to use us as a reference…whatever– please let us know.

Thanks again : )

Stephen and Company
We know it’s been a little while since our special day, but we just wanted to extend an extra-special “Thank you!” for the long-lasting memories you’ve created for us. Our video has amazed us each time we’ve watched it! Y’all did an outstanding job!!! We will definitely recommend you to anyone 🙂
God bless & thanks again!
Sarah & Logan Lydell

Stephen Montoto and crew,
This wedding trailer is outstanding!! It goes above and beyond what I ever could have expected. Thanks for capturing the true love and happiness Terry and I have for one another. For that, we are forever grateful!! ☺️
Jessica and Terry Chim


Stephen & Crew,
Words can’t fully express how thankful we are for the most amazing wedding video. Once we met with you and saw your work the decision was easy. We knew at that point our expectations would be exceeded and they surely were. We now have something to treasure forever thanks to you!
Much appreciation,
Lacey & Shane Boudreaux

Thank you sooo much for your AMAZING work !! By far the best videographer in Louisiana as well as the best wedding investment ! our video was our favorite take away from our wedding and Stephen and his team were the nicest and most flexible out of all our vendors. Nothing but great things to say about Montoto Productions 😀

Francesca & Andrew Decker

Thank you!
You guys are the spot light behind the spot light. Shadowing us through out the entire day is hard work and dedication. Thank you for capturing every moment that we have missed and is surely treasured.
Much Love,
Nhat & Hong Nguyen

Hey Stephen!!

All I can say is Wow!!! That wedding highlight is the best I have ever seen. You seriously captured who we are, and somehow showed all the amazing moments of the wedding in five minutes. Everything is perfect. I don’t know how y’all thought of some of those shots. And Robert said if the actual video is half as good as the highlight then he is so excited to see it.
Everyone who i have spoked to that watched it, was in tears by the end.  I am going on 20 views in one day!!!
Thanks again. Y’all are the best!

-Meghan and Robert Ray

Stephen,

I don’t even know what to say…it’s perfect! The more I watch it (and I’ve watched it about a million times!), the more I love it. I can’t believe we almost didn’t have a video!! The comments we have gotten from our friends and family are wonderful…lots of happy tears and re-living of such a wonderful day. Beautiful song and amazing skill and creativity in the footage and how you put it all together. We really cannot thank you enough! I can’t wait to see the rest of the footage!

Anna & Juan Pereira


Marc and I are sitting on the couch together as I type this, and just admiring our wedding DVD. Thanks to each and everyone of you who helped put the film together.

Dear Stephen,
We just wanted to send you a note expressing our gratitude for all that you did in making our wedding day so perfect. You and Steven were wonderful to work with. You guys truly have a gift when working with the camera and brides! Thank you again for being so accommodating and patient with us, especially pre-ceremony! I have already given you several recommendations to friends with upcoming weddings! I cannot wait to see the feature and the video!

Anna & Hooper Price

Hey Stephen, just received our videos. I just want to thank you and your team for Absolutely AMAZING work! I cannot begin to express how wonderful the video is and am so thankful to you and your crew.

Thank you for capturing the best day of our lives so beautifully!

My forever thanks to your amazing talents!

We received the video!!! It is awesome!! The greatest thing we have ever seen! Thank you for doing such a great job! We truly appreciate it!

Ashley & Henry Jolly III

Oh wow it’s absolutely beautiful! I cried through most of it 🙂 My mom has already watched it like 3 times too. I love how easy it is to relive all the emotions from that night just by watching it, and I really love all the cool angles you used when filming it. I feel so lucky that you did so much for us and everything turned out so perfect. Thank you so much!

Shayna & Adam Pond


Hey Mr. Stephen!

I just wanted to say first, thank you again for doing a fabulous job on the best day of me & Jesse’s lives! I’m sure you hear this a lot, but our wedding day truly was a dream come true! So many people told me how nice you & your assistant were as well as commenting on how professional you were! Mrs. Alicia (the owner of the Main Hall reception hall), also made a point to comment to me yesterday how nice y’all were.

Vanessa Karisny Hale


Stephen and the rest of the crew at Montoto Productions,

We are absolutely in LOVE with our video. Thank you for so much for capturing our night. We’ve always said, “I wish we could relive our wedding!” and now we can because of yall’s hard work and talent that went into creating this video. I will be sure to recommend you to other brides needing a videographer. Thank you again for your professionalism.

Kristen & Jacob Sandoz

Hello,

We received our DVD package yesterday and I just wanted to say thank you so much! You already knew we loved the trailer, but the feature was amazing too! Music was perfect, editing was wonderful and we got to relive the fun all over again.
The menus are so cute and easy to navigate. Same on the cover art! What a great feature! We were excited to see all personalization.
Your folks on site were super friendly and never in the way. We are thrilled with our wedding videos and can’t thank you enough!
Much gratitude!
Courtney & Dan Cockerham

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. This highlight video was so moving and told the story of their love and their beautiful night in a spectacular way. We are truly impressed with the quality of your work and appreciate the artistry it took to create.
Jane Sanchez (mother) – Jessica & Jordan

I really do thank God for finding yall! I will get back with you after the holidays and let you know about still frames and raw footage. Thank you for all you have done for us again!
Lana & Brad Thibodeaux

Hi Stephen!

Thank you so much!!! We really appreciate it! Yes, you can add the highlight to your website! It is amazing! You guys did such a GREAT job! Thank you for everything!!!

Brandy & D.J. Augustin


Thank you for the fabulous coverage of our wedding! It was wonderful to be able to experience it all again, and again… and again!!

Sadly, this email will not be of financial consequence to you (unless you would like to be recommended in Tallahassee!) but I just saw your work (as I was browsing through my etsy favorites… one of the vendors had one of your videos as a link) and I HAD to write to you!

The video I saw (Sarah and Jacob) was the finest work of its kind I have ever seen.  I have been in media for 26 years and was a film minor at Florida State. My kudo’s would be that you are the first film maker (or team) I have seen who “gets” it.

I was crying like a professional onion dicer during the entire thing. This for absolute STRANGERS who, because of your work, I now feel I know intimately.

I handcraft my ceremonies and therein hope to capture the couple’s story and relationship in writing and speech as you have visually. Most folks in this business phone it in. But, if you are phoning it in it must be a direct line to heaven. Watching it was a religious experience( this from an officiant!) Absolutely breathtaking. I just had to write and compliment you and your staff.

Hey, Its Jesse Hale. I just pulled the computer away from Vanessa because I wanted to personally tell you “Thank You” for taking the still shots of Vanessa and I leaving the reception. I do know that it was something that you did not have to do, but you did it anyways. That means a whole lot to Vanessa and I. I know you guys were professional and I know that the video will also reflect the professionalism that I noticed during the wedding. As you probably know, It takes a whole lot to impress my Dad, and he was. We can’t wait to see it! Thanks again!

Vanessa & Jesse Hale

Stephen Montoto and Crew,
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on our wedding video! The video and highlight are amazing!
Megan Moreau Haney

I wanted to tell you that I can not thank you enough for what you did for my sister. You are amazing to work with, such a pleasure and I really didn’t have time to talk much being I was focused on capturing her moments. You were very professional yet so down to earth and I just can not thank you enough for that. I know you are a busy man but I just had to say thanks again 🙂 Sarah and Ben are on their honeymoon and I contacted her this morning to find out the companies name so I could try to reach you. I couldn’t wait 🙂 I have a great picture I took of you inside the limo in action and it came out great. I will send it to you here very soon if that is ok 🙂 Hope your Monday is going well and sure hope to bump into you again someday 🙂

Stephanie Curry

Thank you SO MUCH!! We love it!!! Y’all did such an amazing job!

Katie & Andrew Ducote

Thank you so much for this! It captures our day perfectly. I’m so happy we had you there! 🙂

Thanks again!

Lindsey & Buddy Glass

Mr. Montoto,

I just watched our wedding video again, and still love it as much as I did the first time we saw it! You have no idea how well you captured the memories of our very special day.

Brett and I are expecting a baby girl in January and I can not wait until she is old enough to appreciate the quality work you did on her parents wedding day. Thanks again for giving us the memory to relive.

 

Katie & Brett Vicknair

Stephen,

First of all I want to thank you for giving us a wedding video that was much more than what we paid for. That being said, I’m in awe of your talent. You made Natalie and her wedding look beautiful and the sound quality was so rich. I absolutely love it! I love watching it over and over again. Especially the extra footage with the family on the dance floor. Justin tries to act like he’s not related but he knows he is!

 

Patty Chandler

Stephen,

You are amazing! The video is fabulous!!! You captured everything significant plus more than I could have expected.

Bruce was so pleased with your professionalism at the wedding and the end result of your work.

I am pleased to relay the good news that my daughter, Jill, is engaged. Sim proposed in Cape Horn, South Africa Sunday. Looks like catching the bridal bouquet really does work! I may need your services again this year!

Thank-you so much for putting our wedding memories so beautifully on video.

I hope to see you soon!

 

Colette Thomas

Stephen,

When we saw them this weekend in Atlanta, bride and groom mentioned that

they were very happy with wedding video (parents of bridge/groom are also

pleased).

We plan to get you some referral business. And your web visibility should

dramatically increase if Audubon Tea Room uses the Preview at its website.

Thanks for job well done.

Dear Stephen,

We would like to thank you again for doing an awesome job on our wedding video. I can’t wait for my family to see the video and just in time for Christmas!

Lindsay & Blake Sistrunk


We received the wedding DVD’s at the end of last week and all I can say is WOW!! Its amazing! I’ve probably watched it 100 times lol! Thanks again for doing such a great job!

Laura & Jordan Adcock

We love it!!!! It is perfect and beautiful! Thank you for sending this;) I can’t wait to share it with friends and family!!

Thank you and God bless you,

I just wanted to let you know that my fiance and I watched the highlight video, and we absolutely LOVE it! We are blown away by how great it is! You have done such a FANTASTIC job and I just wanted to say thank you!! I have watched it at least 7 times and love it more and more each time!! Thank you so much for capturing our special day!! YOU ARE AMAZING!!! 🙂

Chelsea & David Carpenter

Hi Stephen,

I just wanted to let you know that I received the wedding video and I absolutely LOVE it!! Ya’ll did an amazing job and I could not ask for anything more!! Our wedding day went by so fast and now we can relive it whenever we want lol!! You captured every special moment and I can’t thank you enough! Words can’t describe how happy we are with the video! All we can say is thank you very much for everything!!!

Angel and Jimmie White

Stephen,

Received the dvd’s last Thursday. We watched it on Saturday. Absolutely loved it!! Thank you so much for the amazing job you did. I will definitely be referring you to anyone I know in need of a videographer.

Take care.

Kim Blake

Stephen,

I put your message aside because I haven’t had time to write the praise and thanks you deserve. We were all totally blown away by the quality of the feature you sent, and cannot wait to see the finished full-length piece.

Graham & Katherine Lindner

Hi Stephen,

I am writing to thank you so much for the beautiful video you took of my and Monroe’s wedding on September 25 in Amite, LA. The video came out better than I would have imagined. You did a superb job! Your artistry in the details was apparent. I loved your gentle touch showing the toddler boys walking up the country road with their parents too. You captured every aspect of our wedding and reception. I also loved the way you edited the video to include our soloist singing as a cover to various scenes. I could not have asked for a better video Stephen. Thank you so much for your professionalism, personal efforts in meeting my short deadline, and for memorializing this most important event in our lives for prosperity.

I highly recommend you, and would be happy to be used as a reference if you so desire.

Sincerely,

Susie Miller Harrison

Stephen,

I cannot express how thankful we are that you filmed our wedding. There was so much that we missed & couldn’t have hired a better man for the job. Everyone was very impressed with your work ethic & professionalism. We really enjoyed meeting you. Thank you.

Sheree & Patrick G.

Stephen,

What you have done for us goes waaaaay beyond what we had hoped. We had, at one time, thought to do without the videographer when my cousin for photos bailed on us and I had to pay for that as well. When I found you on the internet, I said, “No. This is who we want for ours!” Stephen, you took what we had, and made it into a Legendary Fantasy. What you created for us, was indeed, priceless and well worth so much to us, words cannot begin to say. We watch the double highlight video more than we look at our photographs, and they are really good! lol.

Both of us cry when we see it, even now, just over 2 months later.

Thomas & Tammy Greig

AMAZING!!! Is the word I would like to use to express how we feel our wedding dvd came out. We absolutely love it!! Y’all did such a wonderful job, I am recommending you to some friends for sure they are getting married within the next year. Words really can not express how grateful we are to have this wedding dvd, this is our prize treasure… such a wonderful memory. We have watched it 4 times, haha and we just got it this past Monday. Thank you, THANK YOU!!! Y’all did anexcellent job, I could go on and on about the wedding dvd but I’m sure you don’t have all day, just to read this email, please just know that we are definately very satisfied customers.

Hope y’all have a great weekend. THANKS so much again!

Your Friends,

Amy & Jason Giordano

We looooved the video!!! It was gorgeous!! Thank you so much!! I will tell all of my friends that are getting married about you !

Thanks,

Michelle and Chris Bossier

Stephen,

My family and I were blown away by how wonderful the highlight video turned out. I couldn’t be more pleased and thank you so very much for capturing all of the little details that made our wedding day so special.

Allison M. Gary

Thanks Stephen. We LOVED it we can’t stop watching it, my husband even posted it on Facebook!

Baton Rouge Wedding Video

Attributes To Look For in Baton Rouge Wedding Video.

Second, you should clarify if the shortlisted wedding videographers in Baton Rouge specialize in weddings. Bridal shoots, pre wedding shoots, reception videos and post wedding shoots are just some of the different expeditions you would venture into and only a professional specializing in weddings would be able to do justice to such shoots. Many professionals keep themselves occupied with general events or corporate events and become a wedding photographer or videographer for a while in the year. Such a professional should not make it to the list of your desirable wedding videographers in Baton Rouge.
Expertise

Baton Rouge wedding video

Expertise is a broad term. It encompasses one’s experience, the style of videos which has become his or her forte and the awareness of local places. If you are shooting a wedding video in Baton Rouge then your videographer needs to be aware of the area and various places, without the knowledge of which he or she cannot come up with any suggestions or pick places for the shoot.
If you want a grand wedding video, shot in cinematic style with a splendid post production then you ought to hire a wedding filmmaker in Baton Rouge like Montoto Productions.
