"My sister hired Joseph as a gift for our destination wedding in Puerto Rico. My husband and I were incredibly grateful that she did! Throughout the planning, we reached out to Joseph with a few questions/comments on what to expect/the type of film we'd like to have, and his responsiveness was superb! He also provided us with a list of examples of the type of films he'd previously done, to give us an idea of the masterpiece in the making. On our wedding day, he told us to pretend like he nor his assistant were present. They did a terrific job with catching all the candid/natural emotions through their discrete filming, which allowed us to both to feel comfortable and be ourselves that day. In fact, they were so good, that at times we didn't even realize they were there! Once we received the email from Joseph letting us know that the highlights film was complete, we were filled with anticipation and excitement. His work was incredible and went above and beyond our expectations! We watched the video countless times and relived every moment through it. Our family and friends were moved as well, and repeatedly said that they'd never seen anything like it! Not only is he professional, timely and attentive but personable, candid and very creative! The talent and hard work Joseph used to create our wedding film is invaluable to us and we trust that he will continue to bless others with the same. We are so grateful to have had him capture this special day for us and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone getting married! Best of luck Joseph" :)

"Joseph Minasi was BEYOND AMAZING and such a pleasure to work with. Considering the quality of his work, I was shocked at what a good price he was offering his services for. He's WORTH EVERY PENNY. When I received the highlights film, I probably watched it a good 30 times, with tears in my eyes. The way he captured the event was breathtaking, and everyone agrees. I have gotten a million compliments and so many friends of mine who are brides-to-be immediately wanted to contact him for themselves. They said mine looked like a movie for a fairytale love story. You can read all of his reviews you want, but my personal opinion is that his work speaks for itself. I am absolutely positive that he is going to do big things in this world and I hope i have another big event that I can snatch him up for...because he really is that good. I hardly even knew he was at the wedding...quietly doing his thing and magically capturing memories. A million thank-you's to you, Joseph, for giving me more than I could have imagined. I'm a huge fan."

"Hiring Joseph was the best decision I made throughout my entire wedding planning process. From start to finish he was extremely helpful and professional and I am just in love with his work. Our film is something truly special and I honestly didn't think the film would be THIS amazing even after seeing all his beautiful work. I am so thankful to have found Joseph and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding cinematographer. One last thing I wanted to mention is the turnaround time for the films, which were amazing. I had my highlights 3 days after my wedding and my full feature within one month - both of the highest possibly quality! Despite being done so quickly, the editing is extremely well thought-out and creative. The film is structured so brilliantly he must be working with magic!!!"

"Hiring Joseph to film our wedding was THE BEST decision I made in regards to our nuptials! My husband is from the UK and we quickly realized the need for a second reception after the wedding for those loved ones that were unable to make the 6000mi journey to our So Cal wedding. We had already spent our photography budget but having been brought to tears by a few wedding highlight videos, I knew we simply HAD to find some money somewhere to be able to bring a real feel of our day to our UK guests. I know everyone will tell you that photography is everything... and it IS important...BUT I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I've watched our highlight video - more than I've looked at our photos that's for sure! We have 1000+ shots and I love our photos too but the piece of moving art that Joseph created of our big day blows those stills out of the water! I could not be MORE GRATEFUL that Joseph was willing to work within our budget and fly across the country to shoot our wedding in CA and share his gift with us and our loved ones.
Although his portfolio is impressive, I could not have imagined how wonderful our own video would be which is why I say it is the best money we spent in our entire wedding experience. The flowers wilt, the cake digests, the dress is in a box in my closet...but our wedding film... that brings it all back to the glorious day where everything was perfect! Joseph is professional, responsible, quick to respond and quick in production. We had our highlights film in a week - 6 weeks before our photos! Highly recommended! Fly them to your wedding (like us!) if you have to! Worth every penny!"
