Capturing Special Moments on 10/6/13Reviewed on 12/20/2013 Kristen C
I found Mike and Ambiance at a Bridal Show I went to with my mother and aunt. He was very personable!! You could tell he was truly interested in what we had to say and made us feel extremely comfortable right from the start. He sold us on the Photobooth!! It was lit up Purple at the time and I knew right away it was perfect. There was no turning back, Mike was our guy! After bringing my fiance to meet him at Utopia in Fairfield, He knew I had made the right decision, as he felt the same way about Mike and was extremely happy with the level of service we received. He was BOOKED! A few months later, as the wedding was around the corner, we heard some bad news and needed a new videographer asap. Sure enough, Mike was ready and willing to be our guy for that also. He made myself and my husband feel comfortable and at ease about the situation and wouldn't let us down. He worked around our budget, listened to our Do's and Don'ts, added some insight, and pointed us in the right direction. Our wedding day came, and Mike was right there capturing all the important and silly moments we will also remember. We are thankful for Mike and owe him the biggest thanks for coming through on such short notice!!! You are truly an amazing person, a great videographer and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much for being a part of our Special Day!!!
Delivered as Promised, But with a Smile!Reviewed on 11/24/2015
My wife and I were led to Ambiance Video through our photographer, LaModa Studios, who suggested we look Ambiance since they have generally worked well together. We met with Mike from Ambiance, and we were immediately comfortable with him; he has one of those personalities that is immediately friendly. Unlike some of the other videographers we met in our journey to finding a videographer, Mike was laid back, didn't use pressure tactics to sell us on his services, was willing to work within our budget, and was reasonably priced for our wedding date. After some careful consideration, and reading the reviews for Ambiance Video on various websites, we chose Mike because of his people skills and his ability to work within our budget. We were confident that this would transpire well to our wedding day, and leave us with one less thing to worry about. We negotiated a few changes in the contract and inked it about four months before the big day. We had occasional conversations with Mike leading up to the wedding, and all of them were extremely pleasant and productive. He is extremely friendly, willing to work with you, and isn't resistant when changes occur. All-in-all he's cheerful to work with. Come the wedding day, I barely noticed Mike being there. There's something said about that, because great service is generally unrecognized. That is the truth in our case. It was so polished and uncoerced that it just blended into the background with fluidness and ease like a ballerina. Mike called on use very few times that day, and he just found a way to make things easy. If you are planning a wedding, it's important to note that when you meet with Mike, you get Mike at your wedding. He's not subbing out his work. That's something that my wife I found to be very important! We received our video as promised several months after the wedding. Mike even shipped it to use at no additional charge when we couldn't pick it up. It came on Blue-ray in the distinctive Blue ray case. We watched it the same day we were extremely happy with the production. My wife and I spent a lot of time and effort finding the right people and companies for our special day. What we discovered was that there are a lot of callous and ungenuine people in the wedding industry who we felt would nickel and dime us, were price gouging us, or just wouldn't provide dependable services. There were many we felt comfortable with, but price was just not within our budget. Ambiance was the right fit for us, and Mike hit a home run. I would highly recommend his services for your event.
AMAZING!!!!Reviewed on 8/26/2013 Jackie m
AMAZING!!! Mike with Ambiance Video Productions is amazing, talented and incredibly affordable. Mike was with us throughout the entire day, capturing all those unforgettable moments of our wedding day. He worked amazingly well with my photographers and at times we didn't even notice he was recording. Mike was truly a pleasure to work with and was very helpful and creative in suggesting poses for us to do. I ordered a wedding recap trailer which is a recap of the entire day. When we saw our wedding trailer, I was blown away and we were both left speechless. He did an outstanding job in making our day a truly unforgettable one! I would highly recommend Ambiance Video Productions to any bride!!
Two months before our wedding, I decided that I wanted to have a videographer to capture our wedding day. I already had an amazing photographer booked, but I wanted to be able to relive the moments that would go by far too quickly. I was worried I would not find anyone in that short of time that would meet the expectations of what I wanted to have captured and be within our budget, but I figured I would give it a shot. Like anyone who looks for a recommendation, I went onto the wedding websites to review ratings for different videographers. The first company I called I felt was extremely overpriced for the packages they were offering, so I didn’t even consider them. The second, and final call I made, was to Ambiance Video Productions Inc. When I got on the phone with Mike, the conversation flowed so nicely that I felt like we had known each other for years. He was extremely easy to talk to, and knew exactly what it was that I wanted to capture. He answered every question I had (I was a nervous bride, so I had a lot of questions), and was extremely accommodating; I knew that he was the guy for us. I met Mike the day of our wedding. While he was not available to stay and shoot our whole wedding day, he went out of his way to come to the venue, just to introduce himself (since we talked quite a bit over the past few months), I thought it was really great, I didn’t even ask him to do that! To take things a step further, he offered to stay and shoot whatever footage he could, just as a courtesy to us. That was above and beyond any expectation we had, and I was more than grateful that he did that for us! He stayed in the bridal suite with the girls, and his main assistant Kurt, was with the guys. When Mike had to leave, his other assistant Danny stepped in, to capture the rest of the day. I have to also give kudos to Kurt and Danny, who did an awesome job over the course of the day. They were so friendly and great to work with, I didn’t have to look for them, or tell them what to capture, they were always in the right place, at the right time. They captured so many things that I feel like we didn’t get to see (because ladies/gents, you will miss certain parts of the wedding). We got our video back recently, and I have to say, it came out AMAZING. It was like reliving the day, from start to finish. The video captured more than we could have ever anticipated, even the finer details, like the rose petals in the aisle, the champagne glasses waiting for the guests, and the dinner menu on the tables. Wanting to have a videographer at the wedding was one of the best last minute-decisions we could have made, but choosing Ambiance Video is an absolute no-brainer. I highly recommend Mike and his staff to be your videographer for your next occassion.
We had a great experience with Mike from start to finish. Couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, professional, and easy-going vendor to work with. Thank you to Mike and the Ambiance Video Productions Team for an incredible wedding video.
Michael was absolutely amazing. My now husband didn't even want a videographer, but I begged him on this one. We heard of Ambiance through a friend, and immediately connected with Michael during our phone conversation. His price was right within our range, and he kept in touch leading up the whole 14 months we booked him until our date. He kept tabs on all friends and family which was SO helpful when we needed them for a shot, and my nervous dad was truly put at ease with him. He made it feel easy taking those "candid moments" and came with so much energy (and earlier than expected!) that I just cannot say enough good things about him. We just got our teaser trailer, and everyone I know cried and laughed watching it. I couldn't be happier with Michael and Ambiance video. An absolutely great company and person.
I found Mike from Ambiance Video through The Knot and Wedding Wire. From the first time my husband and I met Mike, we knew he was the perfect fit for us. Mike is personable, laid back, professional and most importantly, RELIABLE. Mike worked well with our photographer who he never met before our wedding day. The best part is Mike edited our wedding video himself. Our wedding video was beautiful and delivered as promised! I highly recommend Ambiance Video to all couples, especially since a wedding video is something to cherish for all the years to come.
Love mike NebbiaReviewed on 11/17/2015 kelli p
Mike was the absolute best. Not only did he work seemlessly with the photographer to get great shots. He set up his own if he felt it would be a missed opportunity and took still shots as well. He's flexible and amazing to work with. Makes you feel very comfortable. Not pushy or annoying. Would have never known he was there!
Worked with Michael for our wedding on 8/30/15 (found him here online) Most of my other vendors came recommended by friends, so I took a chance with using wedding wire...Michael turned out to be great to work with from the get go. All of our email exchanges were professional but Michael always had a way of getting me excited for our big day! He was fairly priced and i felt confident he would be great for our wedding. The day of our wedding, he was on time (early) and great to work with. He knew exactly where our hotel was and our wedding venue, so he knew his way around both placed. He made sure to capture every moment and treated the day like his own. he made my wedding party feel comfortable and was great all around. I cant wait to see our video. He got it done in 6 weeks and is on its way. I have recommended Michael to 3 friends and recommend him to all of the ppl reading this review!!!!!!!!!!! thanks again Michael.
Amazing!Reviewed on 9/21/2015
After shopping around for wedding videographers, we finally found Ambiance. We first met with Mike a year before our wedding and from that initial meeting we knew we wanted to use his services to capture our wedding day. He was friendly, professional, and understood what we wanted for our video. On the day of our 4/18 wedding central NJ, Mike bounced back and forth between the bride and groom’s hotel rooms, drove to multiple locations, and was there to capture all of the special moments! He was extremely professional and worked well with our photographers. Mike was also very patient in working with us to develop our video. He answered all of our questions and even handled our requests! We love our wedding video and will treasure it for years to come! Thank you Mike! - Gretchen & Brian
Best Videographer!Reviewed on 2/15/2015 Laura C
I happened to stumble upon Ambiance Video and Mike while shuffling through reviews on wedding planning websites. I really wanted to incorporate a brief slideshow and a short clip of us saying our "I Do's" at the reception. Many videographers told me that this was impossible. Mike listened to my idea and worked with us to make my vision a reality. He is a true pleasure to work with, and was one of our favorite vendors. The day of our wedding he captured every important moment. He was wonderful to work with the day of our wedding. At one point I realized that I forgot my bouquet downstairs in the bridal suite and Mike went to go get it for me! We were blown away when we saw our wedding highlight trailer. So many of our friends and family said that they had never seen such a wonderful recap before. When we received our video, we were equally blown away. Mike captured all of the big moments, as well as the small moments that are so easy to oversee because you are so caught up in all of the events of the day. It is so professionally done. Our wedding video is hands- down the most beautiful souvenir of the happiest day of our lives. It is something that we will always treasure and enjoy for many years to come. We highly recommend Mike and Ambiance Video- you won't be disappointed!
Complete SatisfactionReviewed on 12/23/2014 Morgan K
We were referred to Ambiance Video through our wedding coordinator. Both my wife and I live in the Washington D.C. area and were unable to meet with other videographers in the area. However, I cannot imagine finding another company that would have delivered a better experience and product. As the groom, my only request was that the videographer seem essentially invisible throughout the ceremony and reception. I was surprised that I had a different take on my expectation because Michael became a part of the group and seemed as though he was a family friend just there with a camera. There were times throughout the night when he would ask my wife and I to do certain things, and it never came across as a nuissance. In fact, after seeing the video I was grateful he made these suggestions because it clearly created an opportunity for great footage. It wasn't just a week ago that I called Mike to see if he could expedite the completion of the final video so that we could have it for Christmas. To my surprise, I got a call just a few short days after that he had the trailer as well as the final video completed and ready for pick-up. Furthermore, he was very accommodating and went as far as meeting my wife close to her parent's home to deliver the video. This made it easy for her, as it avoided an hour and a half trip to NJ. Overall, I think that Ambiance Video delivers 100% on presentation, customer service, and quality of product. I am thankful our wedding coordinator gave us the reference. I would highly recommend for anyone in the surrounding area to use them for any event they are planning.
Blessing in DisguiseReviewed on 10/21/2014
I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his work. I had previously booked another videographer (18 mos before my wedding date) and around 6 wks prior to my wedding, I had unfortunately found out that he was no longer reliable and going under. Naturally, I was very upset and worried. My video and photos are extremely important to me (as that is all you have left after your wedding is over of course). I found Ambiance Video via Wedding Wire & was impressed by the reviews. I contacted Mike and by luck (or fate) he was available for my wedding date. I was initially worried booking with him so close to my wedding, but it was a true blessing in disguise. Mike eased all of my fears and worries. He was always readily available to meet and answer any questions, even when he was on vacation. On the day of the wedding, he was so sweet and I had no idea he was there. My family was so impressed by him. Our wedding trailer came out amazing, exceeding all my expectations. I received and continue to receive phone calls from friends and family members about how great our video is. As a bride (who did not drink), I can tell you from personal experience, that your wedding day is a blurr. There are so many special moments that you cannot recall or are fuzzy in your mind. Mike did a spectacular job of capturing those special moments without even knowing he was there. If you want an amazing, life-long memory of your special day, go with Mike of Ambiance.
Highly RecommendReviewed on 9/25/2014
Choosing Ambiance Video for our wedding was the best decision/investment ever!!! When my husband and I met Mike for the first time he was such a pleasure and took his time to explain the different packages and options we had to chose from. My husband decided to go for the photobooth and i am so glad he splurged on that as it was such a hit the day of our wedding. Our guests had so much fun taking pictures with the different props they provide and our scrapbook will forever remind us of how much fun everyone had. The day of the wedding Mike showed up with props for my video shoot and he was full of ideas and suggestion, enough that he was even inspiring my photographer!!!. Mike worked very hard the entire night capturing every single moment of our night.... We picked up our video and I was floored with the work and the editing he did that it brought tears to my eyes. I relived every single moment of my special day all over again, even the moments that i had missed. I usually don't recommend services to others but i highly recommend Mike (Ambiance Video)!!! His prices are reasonable and his work above superior. Thank you Mike from the bottom of our hearts!!!
Amazing video!!!Reviewed on 8/27/2014
I used Ambiance Video Productions for my wedding in June 2014. They were completely professional and blended in the background without getting in the way of things. They provided an absolutely beautiful video!!!!! I would absolutely refer them to other brides.

Mike at Ambiance Video did such an incredible and perfect job on our wedding video and we would highly recommend him for any special occasion, especially weddings!!! He's a truly gifted videographer that delivered a very touching and moving video using creative techniques and sentimental notions. Words can't express how grateful my husband and I are to have had him as our videographer and be such a special part of our day! I would highly recommend him to any bride who is looking for a genuine and reasonable videographer to capture every moment of the most important day of your life! He is the best!!!!
Thank you Ambiance Video!!!Reviewed on 7/07/2014 Tara P
Thank you to Ambiance Video for capturing our wedding day beautifully! We cannot say enough good things about Ambiance Video! From the very beginning, Mike was so easy to work with, he took time to review every little detail with us, and was always quick to respond to any calls or emails with questions we had. He is incredibly talented, professional, and friendly. Mike blended in as if he was one of the guests at our wedding, everyone loved interacting with him. We are beyond thrilled with our wedding video, including the trailer. In just a short 5 minutes, he hit every single highlight of the day and truly depicted the love and joy we felt. He puts so much thought in getting every single little detail on film. We are grateful for the moments he captured for us. We look forward to reliving our wedding day for years to come and will always treasure our video. I would highly recommend Ambiance Video to anyone who wants to capture all of the important moments of your special day, you will not be disappointed!
Mike from Ambiance Video ROCKEDReviewed on 6/05/2014
My husband and I got married one month ago. We were working on a very small budget, but decided that hiring a videographer was one splurge that was worth it. Turns out there were no budget worries at all- Ambiance Video had many packages to choose from and was able to accommodate our tight budget. During the ceremony and reception we could barely tell there were cameras following us at all (except when we would look over and see Mike cheering us on as if he was one of our personal guests). He had a way of making us feel as though he himself enjoyed being a part of our day. Less than a month later we got the email that our wedding trailer was ready..woohoo! In this short 3:36 min video- he captured sweet moments between friends and family that are dear to our hearts, shots of us partying and having a great time, and even snuck in our wedding vows. It was the perfect mix of fun and sentiment. It was short enough to share with those who don't necessarily need to sit through our entire wedding video, but were able to get a sneak peak. Only a few days after the trailer was ready, our full video was ready to be picked up (Blu-Ray btw)....we are ecstatic to see what it has in store. Mike has a passion for his work, and it was evidently clear that he cares about each event individually. We were truly lucky to have had him capture our day- as these will be the solid memories we will have to carry with us into the future.
A review on my wedding video experianceReviewed on 12/18/2013 Amy R
Hi, my name is Amy and I recently just got married in April 2013. I could not be any happier with the videographer we chose for our wedding. He was wonderful! He captured every special moment of that day, interviewed our guests, which was really sweet to watch later on in our wedding DVD and he was so up front about every detail, He never left any thing out. We had no surprises in the end! Our wedding DVD was amazing! He did such a wonderful job. I could not stop watching it for almost a month! And it is something that we will have forever to show our children and grand children some day. I highly recommend Ambiance Video Productions to any bride and groom! You will definitely not be disappointed!

Wedding Videography ServicesReviewed on 9/29/2013 Tynesha B
Mike from Ambiance Video was very pleasant to work with. His high definition video services are reasonably priced for the high quality of work that you receive. My wife and I ran into a few issues before and during the wedding and Mike was able to work around our circumstances with no hesitation. He is very accommodating. I would definitely recommend him for your videography needs. I will be contacting him for my future videography needs as well. Wish i could give Mike 10 stars!
Everyone Loved IT!Reviewed on 6/06/2013 Tracie G
Ambiance Video was our vendor for the photo booth at our wedding. The white photo booth with red carpet looked great and was a huge draw for our guests. We loved all of the photos, our scrapbook, and the DVD messages left by our guests. It was both completely professionally handled and well done. Everyone loved it and had a great time with it. I highly recommend booking a photo booth package from Ambiance Video!
Couldn't be happier with the service!Reviewed on 4/29/2013 Joyce E
Ambiance Video made our wedding amazing! Our guests really loved the photo booth and props. My 3 year old niece even cried at the end of the wedding because she wanted to take more photos! The service was phenomenal. Ambiance even customized the booth lighting and photo strips for us. Mike was so helpful and very responsive to emails and calls. I would highly recommend Ambiance for weddings and parties. I will continue to tell my friends and family how wonderful you are.
Awesome!Reviewed on 1/22/2013 Alison I
Mike was there from the very beginning getting my groom set up for the big "I Dos" He was with us throughout all the big moments of the day and worked well with our photographer in order to make sure that lighting was good for both of them. I would highly recommend them. They are also incredibly affordable and a general pleasure to work with.
