Secret fire media is a wonderful videographer company as they filmed our wedding on May 29th 2016 in New Rochelle. Matt was very easy to get in touch with via phone and email.

I have to say, Mathew and his partner in photography and videography were the only ones whom did their job without anything going wrong. They made me feel comfortable, and they were there way early to scope out the place, which eased my nerves because mine and my husband's... Read More immediate family were late!! They even stayed a little over the time limit we agreed on, and they were super affordable!!I think they did an amazing job, I absolutely LOVE our photos. They did our videography and photos for a great price. We did not do an album with them because we had heard it's much cheaper to do it yourself, but I will be contacting them to do the album for us anyway, we don't have the time and I was very happy with them. Definitely recommend them!

I've been trying to get in touch with them for weeks. Matt keeps setting up phone conferences and then not calling or not replying to my emails. They look like they do nice work but I would be scared to book at this point.

We hired SFM for videography only; we had a 30 minute call with him prior to hiring him and he was very amiable while answering all of our questions. The video quality is very good for the value we paid and he captured key moments very well. (Our wedding was on the smaller side,... Read More about 110 people). Our wedding was in November and we received the finished products in February, which is pretty good timing. The DVDs we were sent had a nice menu screen to go through each "scene" and we loved our highlights video. I would recommend SFM if you have the budget to add in videography.

Beware! Matthew was a little slow at responding to emails but once I spoke to him on the phone, he gave me a great deal for what I wanted. And then I never heard from him again.

Matt did an amazing job at our August 5th wedding. He arrived at the venue even before my husband and I did. He made sure to get all the photo shots I requested. And he blended into the crowd so well, you didn’t even know he was there most of the time. It took a little longer... Read More than I expected to get the wedding photos back, and it was difficult to reach Matt during that time. But we received our wedding photos on a cd in the mail only a few weeks late. Matt also posted the photos to an online gallery for viewing a few days prior to receiving the cd, which was a nice little extra surprise. The photographs came out so beautiful, and we are very happy with the end result! Thank you Matt! Caitlin King

We had our wedding last June 23rd and until now haven't heard anything from Matt. We don't know what to think anymore. We tirelessly reached Secret Fire Media's email and contact number, to no avail.

On the wedding day, Matthew, Theresa, and Michael arrived right on time and were very professional, kind, and patient. We did the First Look as well as a very large number of family/wedding party photos before the ceremony, and they were so well organized that we completed all the photos early! A lot of guests complimented Secret Fire Media on how organized they were with this large number of photos. During the wedding, Matthew, Theresa, and Michael stayed in the background, but they were everywhere! They didn’t miss any photo or video opportunities! I highly recommend Secret Fire Media. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and affordable. (I will be updating/adding to this review once I receive the photos and video, but I am confident that they will turn out very well.)

They were very nice and worked hard. However, I would've liked more of the tables/bar area....They only videoed the dance floor. Communication was poor as they took a long time to answer emails and they got all of the footage to us at the very last minute.

I had researched videographers for a while and many were way beyond my budget and I could r justify spending 10,000 on a wedding video. Finally I came across as secret fire whor quality of work mirrored other companies who charged thousands more. I know I found the right vendor.The day of my wedding I couldn't of asked for more from Matt and his crew. Start to finish they documented the most special day of my life - through all the madness ! The best part of everything was how quick I received my highlight video ! It was published literally a few days after ! I got to share all the key moments set to a beautiful song seamlessly put together in a movie like highlight reel. My actual video arrived in equally short time and I couldn't have been happier with the final product. I cannot thank Mattthew and secret fire enough for making my day so special. The quality and value of their work is worth 10x what I paid and I would do it all over again !

Secret Fire Media was awesome! We shopped around for a videographer. We were on a budget and he was the best value in the area. We wanted someone to capture all of special moments throughout the day, yet also work well together with our videographer. Our friends had a wedding... Read More where the photographer and videographer were fighting and arguing throughout the day. Matt worked seamlessly with our photographer and we barely noticed he was there in the background. He was super nice and went above and beyond meeting us from beginning to end throughout the process and he worked around our busy schedules. The time it took for us to receive our wedding video was what we expected. I feel that the money that was spent on our videographer was probably the best money that we spent on our wedding except for our honeymoon of course! This priceless movie captured moments that either went by so fast on our wedding day or that we missed entirely because our attention was focused elsewhere. I believe that this time capsule will only become more precious to us in the years to come. We can't wait to watch it again on our one year wedding anniversary! Matt helped to make our dreams come true.

I can't praise Matthew enough! We hired him to photograph our wedding in September 2014.

Matthew provided us with beautiful photos that we will cherish the rest of our lives when reminiscing and remembering our wedding day!
