OUR WEDDING VIDEO!!

Marissa and I are truly fortunate and blessed to have the family and friends support that we have. This pandemic that we are all fighting to get through is hard on everyone. I know this is also hard for so many couples trying to plan their special day let alone the amazing wedding vendors that put it all together. For this reason, I am offering couples $1000 off videography packages (mention discount code: BIGBROTHER) hoping this provides some relief, but I will also be donating 100% of the profits back to the community supporting full-time wedding vendors affected by this pandemic.

Thank you to all the friends and family that took part in our 3-day wedding weekend, in addition to all the loved ones that couldn't be there. Having everyone there made for a truly magical weekend. Stay safe and healthy everyone.

California Road Trip TRAVEL GUIDE | JOSHUA TREE

Part of the reason I created MAO Films was to push myself to travel more, try new experiences, and create new content -especially now that I'm married to my best friend!

Marissa has organized an amazing desert getaway in Joshua Tree, California for us to experience in May.

Super excited. The desert seems like a safe place from CV-19!

Kerry & Luke was one of my absolute favorite couples to film in 2019. Their July wedding in Leesburg, VA was perfect from beginning to end. Initially, they weren't planning on having a videographer, but Kerry's sister and Maid of Honor, Nikki, found me on social media and did some heavy convincing to get me hired in filming the their wedding. K&L's family and friends were so much fun as their dancefloor was packed ALL NIGHT LONG! 🔥🔥🔥

Flash forward to this year, MAO Films will start off the 2020 wedding season filming the wedding of Nikki and Matt in Durham, NC; where Kerry and Luke will also be there as Maid of Honor and Best Man respectively! 😍😍😍

So cool and so stoked to see this amazing group again, and so humbled to be their wedding videographer! 🤵👰🎥🎬

The WEDDING of ERIC and HELEN.... 10.12.19.... Elkton, Virginia....

I absolutely ❤ this story of Eric and Helen and what a perfect way to wrap up my first full year in professional filmmaking.

From the moment I met them the Friday of their wedding weekend, they radiated as one of the most genuine and kind-hearted people I have ever met in my life. The candor and good-nature that appears in this film is a 100% reflection of how they are in person.

Congrats to you both, thank you for trusting me to film capture your wedding and I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon!

8 weeks after I met her, we went on what was our best vacation for either of us staying at an amazing beachfront @airbnb in the @visitthebahamas .

After that trip...I knew she was the one and the following year put a @bluenilediamond ring on it. 13 months later...we said our "I dos" at @stonetowerwinery.

She's my everythang.

OUR FIRST LOOK.

I remember just over a week ago I was filled with plenty of emotion that I got no sleep. It was 5am and my mind was racing. I was to get married in just under 12 hours and I had anxiety that I had a mini video still left to be edited and deliver to our DJ, anxiety with the watches I had gotten my groomsmen and myself that still need to be resized, anxiety in that I was about to give myself the most important haircut that morning in over 20 years since cutting my own hair, anxiety in not getting the insurance option for my personal driver on the 8-person suburban I had rented for the weekend, anxiety over coming back the next morning to clean up the airbnb in which 11 of my friends stayed, anxiety if I remembered our first dance routine, anxiety on having to be a strong emotional support to Marissa that everything will be just be fine in case the weather didn't play nice - needless to say...on the inside I was a little bit of a mess, but I played it pretty cool.

It wasn't until I was asked to close my eyes and hop on the golf cart where I was to be taken to for our first look. Marissa had gotten there first. When I got there I kept my eyes close and they put us back to back and we held hands and talked.

I suddenly had no more anxiety. I felt at peace. All that mattered was here we are, together, and within an hour we were going to say our vows to one another to which will be the official beginning of our life adventure together.

Long story short....I highly recommend first looks, and I love my wife ❤️

Our Story

MAKE. AMAZING. ORIGINALS.

A beautiful picture is worth a thousand words... A beautiful video memory is worth...well MORE!


  • Weddings (cinematic memory of your special day)

  • Travel adventures (romantic getaways, epic adventures)

  • Special events (birthdays, anniversaries, religious celebrations, graduations, etc)

  • Promotions (marketing advertising - clothing, food, travel, auto, hotel, etc)

  • Real Estate (let me help you sell your home, or home(s)!)

  • 8mm to digital video services
  • Ever since I was little I've always enjoyed telling a story through pictures and videos. For years it was my hobby that I became very passionate about because a movie has the ability to affect all the emotions - to inspire, to laugh, to cry - to live life.

    As a videography event service, I'd love to work with you to make amazing original videos allowing you to relive the special moments in life again and again.


  • Cinematic event experiences! Relive your wedding as if you were at the movies. Allow me to capture your special event and transform it to a cinematic experience that will allow you and all those that were part of your special day to relive the once in a lifetime moment. Share with family and friends that weren’t able to make it so they can be sure to make the next one!

  • Unforgettable destination getaways! I can travel with you and your significant other to capture a romantic getaway, or with you and your friends on an epic adventure. It’s always hard to capture for yourself an amazing travel experiences. I’ll be your personal camera crew to make your travel adventure one for the ages!

  • Increase the viewership of your marketing audience! Allow me to help you market your products or services on social media creating enticing videos to bring in customers. Nothing draws an audience better than a video showing how amazing your food, service, or product is.

  • Expand your home buying potential! Draw in an increased audience by displaying a beautiful video to help sell your home showing a potential buyer what their future home and neighborhood looks like. I can incorporate aerial drone footage that will easily allow a potential buyer what the surrounding area looks like.

  • Clear out your attic! In addition to creating new content, I can transfer your old 8mm video tapes to digital and incorporate newly digital footage into a beautiful new memory from the past.
  • Send me a message or email me at [email protected] and let's make it happen! -Mark

    I shot two amazing and beautiful weddings in July that I can't wait to share with you all!! Please spread the word to your friends and family couples that have recently gotten engaged. Based out of Arlington, Virginia, MAO Films has no physical boundary to how far we'll go to shoot a beautiful love story
    I highly recommend using MAO Films for your big day. Mark really takes care of you and makes sure that your wedding is captured into a perfect and timeless video that you'll have forever. Mark really goes out of his way to capture every moment that you'll want to look back on and takes a lot of pride in his work. He's passionate, professional, prompt and truly cares about you as a client - a rare find in the wedding industry!
    Mark filmed my wedding. I cried after watching, great story telling. I didn't even know he was there filming, but still got super close to capture all the important moments. Additionally, I appreciated his high-level of professionalism, he insisted we discuss the needs of my wife and myself for our wedding day. He walked through all the details with us. Great to work with!
    A quick recap to a great summer ending with my princess Riley 🌅
