Wow - words cannot describe how much Merryweather Films exceeded our expectations and then some. Not only was the final product absolutely beyond perfect, but on the day of our wedding we didn't even notice 3-4 videographers in the room. They are so good at what they do and didn't distract away from anything, even when we were getting ready in a hotel! Colin, Megan, and the team were so responsive, helpful, available, and professional leading up to the day of as well. They truly took our tastes, wants, and needs into consideration, and the final products truly reflect that. The videos themselves (a 1 minute teaser and a 7 minute highlight reel) blow my mind: they captured the perfection and absolute joy of that day into just a few minutes... unbelievable. Everyone who has seen the videos is in complete awe of how beautiful they are from an artistic and cinematographic perspective. Lastly, as a gay couple we couldn't have felt more welcome and comfortable working with Merryweather. They're extremely LGBTQ -friendly and are overall awesome people. I HIGHLY recommend!
Our experience with Merryweather Films was so wonderful; I can't recommend them highly enough. We wanted a short montage to show to a few family members who wouldn't be able to come to the wedding, so the "Merryweather Simple" option was perfect for us. From my initial phone call with Colin, to e-mail exchanges with Megan and meeting Zach on the day of the wedding, everyone exuded professionalism and were so great to work with. Zach was able to capture SO much - it was a real joy to see a picture of the whole day! He even stayed a bit longer with than planned to capture some footage from a photography session outside; I was so impressed and grateful for that time. Thank you, Merryweather, for capturing our day for us in such a beautiful way.
This team is absolutely fantastic. If i could rate it higher, I would. From start to finish, they accommodated every single request. While they were filming, they were never in our way and they never made us feel uncomfortable or crowded. Our guests didn’t even know we had hired videographers for our wedding. Thank you so much. You are THE BEST!
We could not be happier with the videos from our big day. Not only did the team capture each moment of the day in amazing style, but they were so easy to work with. They have a true gift for blending into the day without our being intrusive. We are so happy we went with them!
My wife and I couldn't be happier with our Merryweather experience. We were on the fence about hiring a videographer (she wanted one, I did not). After coming across Merrweather on Instagram and looking at some of their videos I knew this was the videographer for us. They also have a package offering they call 'Merryweather Simple' which is a great product and something that not all videographers are able to provide. Needless to say they were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire booking process and even more so on the day of. Our videographer was Zach and we hardly noticed him that day. We got our video shortly after the wedding and my wife and I are obsessed with it and we watch it practically every night. I would highly recommend Merryweather to anyone looking for a top quality videographer or anyone on the fence about hiring a videographer.
AMAZING! We were so pleased that we selected Merryweather for our videography. They captured every perfect moment, plus so many more we could not even imagine. Merryweather was friendly, fun, professional and all-around great to work with. They turned our teaser around so quickly and it was fantastic. I even had people telling me that they thought it was so good that it looked like a Hollywood movie teaser! Colin and the team were so friendly and willing to work with us to make our video perfect. We provided some suggestions for our highlight film, and they made adjustments to make the video extra personal and perfect for us. Also, I HIGHLY recommend the drone footage - WOW was it amazing!! The drone footage captured such incredible shots of our ceremony, venue and special moments. We are thrilled with our experience with Merryweather and would recommend them to anyone!
We went with Merryweather Simple because we wanted quality at an affordable price, and still capture all the great moments of our wedding day. Our photographer recommended them and for the price, everything turned out fantastic! Our montage came on time, and we couldn't stop watching it. The video quality is great and the raw footage was sent to us in a really nice and slim 1TB drive. Our videographer James was really professional and we were surprised with how much footage he captured without us noticing. I also commend our email contact, Megan, for keeping in touch with us and figuring out the schedule. We highly recommend a videographer for your wedding, and the videographer you want is from Merryweather Films. Because of it, we now have something special to look back at and cherish. Thank you Merryweather!
Unlike many couples that use Merryweather Films, I have a background knowledge of all of the hard work that goes into shooting a wedding. As a photographer, I realize how much goes into shooting weddings and how talent is an absolute MUST. So for my wedding, I chose to work with Merryweather Films. My sister Brenna had used them in 2015 and I was so impressed with their work, I knew I would book them for my own wedding. The folks at Merryweather are friendly, professional, and willing to do whatever it takes to make your day a success. Zack, Kevin, and Patrick were AMAZING and my husband and I cannot wait to see the finished product. THANK YOU Merryweather for capturing our day in a way that only you can!
A++, Merryweather Films far surpassed our expectations across the board. Our highlight wedding film was fantastic - the music choices, the moments they chose to include, the way everything was layered together... they made an absolutely incredible video for us to watch for the rest of our lives. On top of the production value and craftsmanship, they were a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding. We never had to worry about them (like we did with some of our other vendors), they worked seamlessly with our photographer, and they were flexible and accommodating when we started to run behind schedule towards the end of the night. Overall, a fantastic value for the price of their services. I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married in the area.
This is hands down the best company for shooting wedding videos. Even if I tried I couldn't dream up a better videographer. The whole crew was professional, kind, fun, hard working and all of it paid off when I was given such a amazing video that captured all the magical details of our most special day. The quality of work is amazing, the skill that this team has, and their ability to capture it all without even being noticed is truly what it's all about. No big lights, or crew causing a scene, running around. They do it all, and capture it all. And then their artistry really shows through after the editing, and the music, and the perfect shots melt together in a beautiful display. If you're a bride considering a videographer this team is it. And it's a huge gift to have such a treasure to relive our wedding with those who couldn't make it, and with family and eachother over the upcoming anniversaries to come :) thank you merryweather! I'll be sure to refer everyone to you! You're the best.
As someone who is a huge fan of video production and editing, finding a good videographer was something I wanted from the beginning of the wedding planning process. This was something that was so important to me, and I was intent on finding the best videographer I could possibly find. I'm so glad that I found that in the entire Merryweather crew. They are truly an incredible team who are beyond talented, responsive, dependable, and most importantly just really, really nice people. It was an absolute delight communicating with Megan, and having Colin and Patrick with us on our wedding day. Long gone are the days of cheesy camcorder-esque wedding videos that frankly bore most people. These guys are the real deal- what they give you is more of a cinematic production that encapsulates all the very best moments of your wedding day. What you get is an investment, and the best token to remember your wedding day for the rest of your life. Something that you can proudly show your children and grandchildren some day. A million thank yous to Merryweather Films. We could never put into words how grateful we are for the beautiful gift you have given us.
We are SO in love with our wedding video, it was worth every penny! Like many brides, I dreamed of my wedding day my whole life. After a long year of planning the day finally arrived and like everyone told us, it was over in the blink of an eye! We were so lucky to have Colin and his talented crew capture our special day, we were able to relive each moment in an epic Montague that felt more like a romantic movie then a wedding video. We received the teaser 3 weeks after our wedding; it was so fun to share it with friends! I had one family member tell me it was so amazing, he felt like he was watching a movie preview. We recently received the 12 minute edited version and while I was watching it I told my husband I had never felt so many emotions at once. I was laughing and crying throughout the video, it's so amazing to be able to relive our wedding over and over again and share with friends and family. Merryweather films are so talented, the video is not only a time capsule of our special day but a true work of art! And the best part is, no one even knew they were there!!! Now that's talent :) I would highly recommend adding this exceptional videographer to commemorate your special day!
Truth be told, I was not interested in getting a videographer for our wedding. Though our wedding was jointly planned by my wife and myself along with my in-laws, this was one aspect upon which we disagreed. I've never liked watching other wedding videos and didn't feel it was necessary at ours. However, I am writing this review today instead of my wife because of how happy I am with the work of Merryweather Films. First, I did not want a big presence of videographers/photographers at the wedding. I hardly noticed they were there during the event. And when I did they were kind and easy to deal with. Second, they were easy to work with in terms of setting up a quote, planning for the day, and putting together the music on the video after the event. Third, and most important, the video they put together is really special. It does not have a cheesy or uptight vibe - which we desperately wanted to avoid. Instead the video really reflects what we wanted as a couple - a down-to-earth, easy-going, and fun feeling. There are amazing shots and the editing along with the music is a real treat. It feels like we're in our own music video. In terms of style, the video has a perfect blend of indie romance flick meets alt-country rock video with a touch of traditional wedding video. They allowed the day's moments and the songs we chose to tell the narrative, rather than imposing their own on the video. So if you're looking for a videographer who is both attentive to your needs/concerns and is going to give you an understated, yet amazingly fresh, hip, and unique style to your wedding video, they are your people. Highly recommended!
No matter what I say in this review, no words will describe how AMAZING our wedding video is!!!!! I almost don't even want to call it a wedding video because it really is like a Hollywood production of our wedding day! The team at Merryweather is beyond talented and also must be invisible because we don't remember seeing them filming the whole time! There is nothing worse than being at a wedding under the spotlight of a videographer and that just does not happen with Colin and his crew! Our Teaser and Highlight reel are truly works of art given how each scene corresponds to the music and speeches spoken by our family! Working with Merryweather was a complete pleasure and the final product is definitely well worth every penny spent!! I know the wedding bills add up but, by far the best money spent was with this team and we couldn't be more grateful for everything they did to capture the best day of our lives!!!
Hands down, one of the best investments we made during the wedding process was to work with Merryweather! I cannot say enough about their professionalism leading up to, day-of, and post wedding. My dad's one request of a videographer was that he did not want someone with a "shiny light" walking around. Trust me when I say, we hardly realized the team was around (although we wished we did because they're great people!)! The highlight was gorgeous and the DVDs were above and beyond. Merryweather is extremely talented, capturing the most memorable parts of our marathon day (two ceremonies and one reception). They blended ceremonies, cultures, everything together so wonderfully! We love reliving our special day! Thank you Colin, Megan, and team!
We were so excited to share our highlight reel with our friends and family since Merryweather Films captured our wedding day perfectly! They were very flexible in the pre-wedding process, working with us to schedule filming for the parts of the day most important to us. On the day of, the entire crew was very professional and unobtrusive - we barely noticed they were there! During post-production, they kept an open dialogue, helping us pick the right music and even accommodated requests to add additional shots of family members. They provide a great mix of audio from the ceremony and toasts over shots of our venues and everyone having a fun time. We have gotten many comments from individuals in the video production field about the superb quality of the Merryweather Films product. Additionally, we loved the simplicity of the final delivery being easily accessed online and via DVD for our families. The overall value and quality of Merryweather Films cannot be beat.
I would highly recommend Merryweather Films!! They went above and beyond to make the most beautiful video of our wedding. They are wonderful and professional to work with. We didn't even realize they were there half of the time throughout the day! They listened to exactly what we wanted. The overall vibe of the videos are not corny but instead sentimental and sincere portrayals of our special day. We couldn't believe how fast they got our videos to us - they created the "teaser" video about 3 weeks after the wedding and we received the actual videos about 3 months after the wedding. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Merryweather Films!
I highly recommend using Merryweather Films as a wedding videographer. I could not have asked for a better team to work with on my wedding day. Colin, Patrick, and James were professional and non-intrusive throughout the whole day. Megan was prompt with responding to any questions I had, and the turnaround for our video was surprisingly quick! The team captured the happiest moments of the day that I had already forgotten- the day was such a blur! I cried watching the videos more than on the actual wedding day! My husband and I and our families will cherish these videos forever.
I cannot put into words how floored I am by the work that the Merryweather team did for my wedding. It is a challenge to adequately describe how talented and professional this company is, but I’ll try my best. First and foremost, make no mistake about it: Merryweather is far more than a wedding video company. They are truly a full-fledged state-of-the-art production team that transforms your wedding into a feature film worthy of an Oscar. I honestly don’t know how I got so lucky by finding this team. I knew as soon as I met with Colin and saw some of their videos that I wanted/NEEDED them to be at my wedding! They might be on the pricier side, but let me tell you, it is worth EVERY penny – they turn your wedding into a blockbuster film! But even more beautiful than that. More beautiful than anything you can imagine. There were several other perks about working with Merryweather that I must point out: 1. While I am originally from the Philadelphia (and thus had my wedding in Philadelphia), my now-husband and I have been living in Montana for the past four years. Therefore, I was only able to meet with Colin once, and I truly didn’t have much interaction with Merryweather before our wedding (which was entirely in my control – I could’ve easily talked to them everyday if I wanted to, but I didn’t feel I needed to.) I say all this to say: even just from my first and only meeting with Colin, he and his team STILL understood and captured EXACTLY what I wanted. Which brings me to point #2: 2. Nothing was more important to me than capturing the first look. Any bride-to-be can understand the excitement and importance and value of capturing this moment. So, (relating back to my first point), even though I only met with Merryweather once before my wedding, they remembered this about me 100% and the first look that they captured couldn’t be more perfect. 3. This is one of the most impressive points: when I met with Colin and he showed me his work, I was overjoyed that this would be the guy filming my wedding. My mom and I specifically asked him if he would be one of the videographers there, and he said with the upmost sincerity and honesty that he might be, but even if he’s not, everyone on his team is just as good as he is. That was good to hear. However, on the day of my wedding, when it was two other people that weren’t Colin, for a split second I thought to myself “shoot, I wish Colin was filming this today too” – but then, over the course of the day and ESPECIALLY when I saw the finished products, I realized Colin was 1000% right: everyone on his team IS just as good as him! I can’t imagine my wedding video being any more perfect. Lastly, I just would like to point out that the way they arranged the music in our wedding video was so seamless and perfect. That’s one of the many reasons I regard Merryweather as a full-fledged state-of-the-art film production company… who are simply nice enough to do wedding videos as well ☺ On a scale of 1-10, Merryweather is a 5,000. I’m not exaggerating. Thank you for everything, Merryweather team, you all are seriously the BEST!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with everyone at Merryweather Films. They were professional, responsive and communicative in the months leading up to the wedding , making every step of the planning process easy and stress-free. On our wedding day the videographers arrived right on time, and were so kind, respectful and not at all intrusive. I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly Colin and his team prepared the teaser video of our wedding and received so many compliments from the close friends and family members with whom I eagerly shared the video. I found that the teaser video is a great way to share your special day with those who couldn't be there. After the wedding, Megan and the rest of the team worked very closely with me to create an absolutely beautiful highlight reel of our wedding day that I know we will cherish forever. This team has a true talent for capturing beautiful moments and the quality of their work is unparalleled. I'm so glad we chose to work with Merryweather Films and would highly recommend them to any couple!
Where do I begin I don't think I can say enough about meryweather..... when I first got engaged I knew that finding the perfect cinematographer was goin to be a challenge...... but after a short 2.5 months I ran into Colin and visited him at his studio he is one of thee most down to earth person that I have ever met he made my husband and I feel right at home..... it was then I knew he was the one to make my day magical.......... and without fail his team showed up in my day early and git straight to work they were so smooth I didn't even know they were there and they captured everything we watch our video every single day and I smile and laugh and cry it's like reliving the day over and over and over again..... such a great feeling..... I would like to send a big thanks you it the team that capture my day on November 7 2015..... you guys were the best so professional and polite..... I love you guys so much over at Merryweather.....Thanks for making my day memorable😆😆😍😍😍😍💏💍💍💐💃💃💖💖
Merryweather's crew was an absolute dream on my wedding day. Prompt, professional and personable. Patrick, Zack and James were seriously like video ninjas, so smooth and quiet that we didn't even realize they were there. Our teaser and highlight videos are everything we wanted and more. We've gotten rave reviews from all of our family and friends. Truly cinematic, understated and beautiful. Definitely money well spent. You will not regret booking Merryweather! One of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
I managed to hold it together on my wedding day... but the tears were flowing watching the beautiful DVD created by Colin and his team at Merryweather Films. The quality of the Blu Rays was second to none. My husband and I were so impressed in the clarity of the sound during our ceremony, despite having an outdoor ceremony. Merryweather managed to capture so many special moments of our day, and the video truly represented the spirit of our wedding. The team was unobstrusive and polite, throughout the process - we barely knew they were there. My husband and I believe that hiring Colin was one of the best investments we made. We are so lucky to have such a memorable keepsake, created by such a talented group.
We are so pleased with our film from Merryweather!!! I didn't feel like a video was something we needed it was my husbands idea, but when the video was completed and we were able to view it I was pleased with our decision. Our wedding day went away in a blink of an eye and this allowed me to relive in the moment and enjoy it all over again. The team of videographers(James, Patrick, and Zack) we had on our wedding day were very professional yet easy going and fun to work with. They are good at capturing the moments without you realizing they are there. We actually did not find Merryweather on our own they were a recommendation from another friend who had used them. When we met with Colin he remembered my husband from editing our friends video. This just goes to show the time and effort they spend after your wedding day on the video. We loved them and hope you will too.
Words cannot express how incredible everyone and every aspect of Merryweather Films is! My husband and I got married at The Crystal Tea Room in center city Philadelphia this past August and Merryweather was a part of our day. My entire experience with them was wonderful! The planning aspect! This establishment is a well-oiled machine of efficacy. No part of the planning/paperwork made my head spin, no difficult choices and they simplify everything for you. When you are planning a wedding you really learn to appreciate a business who makes being a bride easy and puts a smile on your face. They were very thorough and professional and still friendly and down to earth at the same time. The big day!!! They were on time and so great to work with. Everyone involved was very well trained with what they were doing and did not need instruction from me at all, they were funny and polite and really great to work with. All around cool people, and when you are sharing your entire wedding day with people, don’t you want them to be nice people to be around? They had a great balance, they were masters of blending into the background while at the same time coxing the best material out of our family and friends. We sometimes forgot they were there completely and thanks to that they were able to get unlimited material. The final product! It’s a jaw dropper! I feel like a movie star every time I watch the highlight reel, and mind you I watch it every day. There is not one detail left out, not one memory forgotten. It shows how much they really, truly cared about us and how the final product turned out. My wedding day felt like a fairy tale to me, but this film makes it really look that way. They captured the spirit of our family and friends flawlessly. Beautiful, stunning, remarkable, I can’t believe this is mine forever. This film feels like a time capsule, I can’t wait to share this with our children and grandchildren. What other vendor can give you a gift like that!! I can gush about the highlight reel for days, but don’t forget you can also get the parts of the day uncut and in each chapter’s entirety. The full ceremony, the speeches, the dances, the entrances. All there full-length so you can go back to them whenever you like. As someone who has recently made it out of the wedding planning maze, please let me tell you that going with Merryweather films is the easiest choice you can make. What they give you is priceless, no matter which package you go with, you will never be happier with a purchase. Everyone on the team is marvelous, skilled and professional and I cannot speak highly enough of them. TRUST ME they are the best and you need look no further. This is the easiest vendor to choose brides!
