  • Whenever we asked couples about their biggest regret from their wedding day, the response was unanimously "that we didn't hire a videographer." This was the reason that my husband and I reached out to Arsalan of Monawar Studios to capture our day. We feel extremely fortunate that we were able to have Arsalan join us for our wedding. From the initial phone consultation to the wedding day itself, we were blown away by the incredible talent, passion, and professionalism that Arsalan showed not only us but also our wedding party, other vendors, and our guests. There is a definite talent in being able to combine film, sound clips, and music in a way that makes you feel invested in the film. Prior to our wedding, my husband and I watched other wedding films from Monawar Studios and we were so impressed by Arsalan's ability to convey feeling and emotion through video. Each video is unique and tailored to reflect the style of the couple and beautifully showcase their wedding day. We high... Read more

  • Arsalan is nothing but amazing. After seeing the wedding video he created for a family friend we knew we wanted him to capture our day. He makes you feel like you have been friends forever. We were blown away by his dedication to insure our day went perfectly. He is so incredibly talented at what he does. Each of his videos are unique in their own special way, enabling you to relive the day you have always dreamed of. Keep the kleenex close by, as he captures the perfect love story in each video.

  • Simply put, Arsalan is the best. We saw some of his work prior to our engagement and knew the one must have for our big day was a highlight video by Monawar Studios. His creative mind is like none other, and his heart is made of gold. We couldn't be more pleased with our video and are happy to call Arsalan a friend now. For recently engaged couples, book him now - it will be the best decision you make for the biggest day of your lives!

  • At first, my husband and I didn't think a videographer would be very important to have at our wedding and thought we should budget our money on other things. We were very very wrong. A video by Monawar Studios and Arsalan popped up on my Facebook homepage and I started bawling as I was watching it. I made my husband come watch and then we started going through many of his other videos. We immediately decided to reach out and see if he could capture the most important day of our lives. Very soon after emailing him, Arsalan asked to schedule a Skype face to face meeting. This made the experience so personal and thoughtful to us. He was genuinely caring and wanted to know our "whole love story." We felt so important. He kept in touch with us throughout our planning and always wrote the sweetest comments on our pictures. My husband asked Arsalan on our wedding day to "make sure his wardrobe looked up to par throughout the day" and he took time to even make sure his bow tie was straightened... Read more

  • Arsalan did an amazing job with our wedding. We knew he was very talented, but what he did for us was more than Chelsee and I could have imagined. He's such a great guy, it was an honor to meet him. We couldn't be happier with our video, thanks you Monawar Studios!

  • I knew from the moment I started trying on dresses that I didn’t want a “traditional” wedding—I wanted something simple, yet elegant; something exciting, yet intimate; something quiet, yet bold. So, we eloped! Our day was perfect in every way, shape and form, and I can honestly say that if given the opportunity to go back and do it all over again that I wouldn’t change a single thing. Deciding to elope wasn’t difficult; figuring out how to tell our parents/siblings/families that we got married, in secret, and without them, weighed heavily on both my husband and myself right up until the moment we said “I do”. We worried constantly about how our decision to elope could potentially hurt the feelings of our loved ones. Would they be mad that they weren’t invited? Would they discount our wedding day because they weren’t physically there to witness it for themselves? We decided to hire a videographer in hopes that capturing video evidence of our wedding would made breaki... Read more

  • Growing up I always imagined that my wedding day would be surrounded by my friends and family who are near and dear to me, never would I have imagined that one of the most important and influential people in my life wouldn't be there to experience it with me. When my dad passed away 6 years ago, I couldn't imagine having a wedding without him. The man whose always been there, supported me and helped me with every detail of my life; he would talk about my wedding day and light up. When it came to setting out the details of how I wanted to honor him I knew this was a day that was going to be centered around him and a day I wanted to look back on and remember. I knew I needed to get a videographer, but not just anyone could fit the part. I looked around, and talked to MANY different people but no one took the time to figure out exactly what I wanted, they never got a chance to know me and my story... until Arsalan came along. As soon as I told him about my father everything changed! He wa... Read more

  • My husband and I went back and forth on getting a videographer for our special day. First off, getting a videographer is a must! Second off, using Arsalan from Monawar Studios is a MUST! Arsalan is EXTREMLY easy to work with! He came all the way from Iowa to shoot our Chicago wedding in October 2016! He was so accommodating, friendly, reasonable, and amazing at video/photography! My biggest concern was that we would notice the cameras, I did not even notice Arsalan and his team once at the wedding! We just go our video back and we are over the moon (I have watched it about 15 times in the span of 4 days)! Monwar Studios is the way to go! Thank you Arsalan for allowing us to revisit our wedding in such an amazing way!

  • Arsalan was absolutely amazing! He was so helpful and he went above and beyond not only as a videographer but as a now friend of ours! He put up with our crazy and the insane last minute change of plans and we love him for it! His work is beautiful and I highly recommend him to anyone! I told him from day one the video is the thing I am looking forward to the most and it is my most cherished memory thus far! We love you!

  • I don't even know where to begin! Arsalan did all the videography for my wedding and I can't say enough about his business! He and his wife were incredibly respectful, polite, professional, timely, and I could go on and on. He was super easy to be around and truly had our wedding as his best interest. He worked with the photographer and the best part was we never even realized he was around. The video teaser was out right away and I've watched it a million times. I can't wait to see what the whole video will be like. He is not only a class act but a true professional. I would highly recommended using him! If I could give him 10 stars on here I would! I can't thank you enough Arsalan!

  • When thinking about our wedding day, I continued to want a videographer to capture some of the more intimate moments. My husband and I went back and forth with the idea for sometime...finally deciding if we could find someone with a creative mind that matched our style, we'd go ahead with a videographer. Needless to say, I reached out to Monawar Studios after viewing their work. I knew within a matter of seconds, they had my heart. Working with the studio has been an amazing experience from the first interaction. There is such a creative mind behind the talent...and that's just a small part of it. The relationship we created with Arsalan has been so special. He is one of a kind and truly has a heart of gold. He was so interested in Casey and I as people, rather than just "getting" our business. He took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. He used that to really build on our wedding day. The week leading up to the wedding, he offered his help with whatever we neede... Read more

  • Hands down the best experience I've had with a business. Arsalan, the owner, was a very wonderful person to work with. He made sure both my husband and I were taken care of on our wedding day, and even offered several times throughout our wedding week if we needed anything! He never once made us feel uncomfortable. He lets you know everything he's going to do and when he's going to do it. Monawar Studios also worked very, very well with our wedding photographer. He knew what moments were best captured on video and what moments were best for photos, hecommunicated very well with her and made sure our special day was captured in the best way possible. During the ceremony he gave hidden microphones to key individuals to make sure all the audio of the ceremony was heard clearly. He was very candid and I hardly even knew he was there! For the reception he took amazing shots of the wedding dances, the speeches, and was really able to capture the fun atmosphere all around us. I would 100% rec... Read more

  • Working with Monawar Studios on our wedding day was what couples dream of when they think of their wedding photography and video. Everything from the initial consultation to the day of the wedding was executed so well. Arsalan and Krystal were incredible to work with and made our wedding photos so natural and so fun which we found important when it is such a large part of your day. And the photos reflect just that! The quality is beyond words and capture the true emotions of the most important day of your life. We can't say enough good things about them!

  • Arsalan was amazing. Super friendly, easy to work with, flexible, and accomodating. He made us feel comfortable and half the time we didn't even know he was there! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Just be sure to allow his creativity to flourish and you won't be disappointed! He also was super flexible with our schedule. We had three different days for our photos, wedding, and reception and he worked around all of them!
