  • When it came to choosing our photographer, we very very picky on our choice. Michael and Shan were amazing to work with from the time we booked the company more then a year away , up to the wedding day and then to getting our images. Their prices were very reasonable and we would choose them again if we had too. We recommend visiting them and getting a chance to talk to Shan or Michael!

  • Out of all of the vendors we used for our recent wedding, Montclair Studio impressed me the most by far - hands down! First, Michael shot our engagement session for us back in June 2017 - my husband and I had SO much fun that day, we were laughing with Michael the whole time. We then met with Michael and his team prior to our wedding to discuss some logistics and to ease my mind a bit because picking the right photographer was the most important decision for me in the whole wedding planning process. Pictures & videos last a lifetime and they are the only things to look back on once the day is *quickly* done. With that in mind, on our big day, we had two photographers and two videographers who all worked together seamlessly throughout the day. Their camaraderie did not go unnoticed because they made me and my entire wedding party feel at ease. They knew EXACTLY what shots to get, where to maneuver people, and it honestly didn't even feel like they were there half the time!! I've been in... Read more

  • From the moment we went to our first meeting with Michael, he gave us every single tool to make the day as smooth as possible. We discussed pricing, our vision and how the day should go. This took such big weight off our shoulders because we were able to just relax and enjoy. The process was very fun and memorable.

  • Michael and his crew were amazing. They met with us beforehand, walked us through shots and videos from our venue for previous events, and were always responsive and available whenever we needed anything leading up to the wedding. When the day itself came, they couldn’t have made things any easier. They were professional, polite, and even our guests commented on what a solid job they did throughout the night. These guys are the absolute best, and didn’t force us to break the bank either. I really can’t say enough positive things about these guys, And we haven’t even seen our pictures yet! We got the photography and video package with albums for my wife and I and both sets of parents. We cannot wait to see the finished product(s)!!

  • Montclair Studio really exceeded our expectations with the quality, level of service, and professionalism. Shan Kadkoy and his team of photographers and videographers are so fun, creative, flexible, and easy to work with. From pre-wedding shoots, to drone footage, to the reception, they captured every golden moment on camera. We highly recommend working with this team of professionals. Their lenses invite everyone else to truly see your big day!

  • I just got married a few weeks ago, and I just have to share that choosing Montclair Studio to capture the event is one of the best decisions I ever made! What an amazing group! They arrived at my house with a plan and stuck to it. They knew exactly what shots I wanted without me having to say anything and knew exactly how to execute the perfect pictures. Everyone in my bridal party was so impressed! One of the photographers, Peter, even stayed a little late to take pictures of me and my husband with each table of our large group of guests (it was a "Big Fat Greek Wedding"). After the event is over, the pictures are proof of the memories...they are what will last. So do yourself a favor and look no further than Montclair Studios to capture the moment. Thank you Montclair Studio!

  • We just got our highlight film, and I have watched it at least 5 times already this morning. I seriously have the biggest grin on my face each time I watch it, it's so AWESOME!!! They really did a fantastic job with the video. We haven't gotten our pics just yet, as it's only been 3 weeks, but the few they've sent over as a teaser, they are absolutely stunning already. So very very pleased with this company. They really did a fantastic job!

  • The Montclair Studio team was amazing! It was important for us for our wedding day to be timelessly captured and they did just that while also being such a pleasure to work with. They made it so easy for us to feel comfortable in front of the camera. We were also floored by how beautifully done our same day edit turned out at the end of the night and our guests absolutely loved it too. Special thanks to Mike, Monica, Brandon, Katter & Fanuel for being there on our special day. We can't wait to see the pictures in a few weeks! :) Noelle & Mark

  • I don’t even know where to start! Montclair Studio was one of the best choices Peter and I made for our wedding day! They are just amazing. Our photographer was Monica, she is a sweetheart, very professional and fun to work with. Her assistant Tom, made my day so much easier, even fixed my hair when it got all messed up by the wind. We just received our photos and we are in love with them! I feel like 5 stars os not enough, they sure deserve more. We totally recommend them. A+

  • Michael and team did a wonderful job with our pictures and videography. They were very efficient but we never felt rushed. They made us feel at ease during the day and were never intrusive. They did a wonderful job of capturing our friends and family and we loved our couple portraits. Both my husband and I were worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera, but the team made everything feel very natural. We selected their two photographer and one videographer package, and I highly recommend our choice. We loved the video as well and I’ve probably watched it a million times already. They were also very accommodating with answering all of our questions, and quickly offered to fix a mistake I made with the video editing (after I sent the wrong song). Thanks again, Michael and the rest of Montclair Studio!

  • We got married January 2018. day of wedding was great. My photos were wonderful, got those on time. My video on the other hand, less the. what I asked. While the quality of he video was wonderful there was a lot of back of forth. I was lied to and told different stories and scenarios of why I wasn’t giving my video on time. I was also lied to many times for many months for the video in the mail, that never came. I was at one point mailed the wrong persons video. the owner, Michael is not professional considering all of the back and forth of lying and ignoring. I love my album, the quality and the images. photos are wonderful and the video i finally got was wonderful! I know several people going thorough them and they are all aware of what I went through. be ware if you go w them.

    HI Jillian , We are sorry to hear you feel this way and we thank you for sharing your opinion . The company we use to outsource our videos did take longer than expected and we kept you updated throughout the process. At no point did we lied to you , we just related the message from our video editing team. We did our best to make sure we complete it as soon as possible but some things are not dependent on us. At no point we ignored you or your emails we just had to wait on the editing company we use to complete your project. Your video took 5 months to complete which is industry average. As you said both your images and vide came our wonderful so we do hope that this made you happy. Happy Holidays

  • My wife and I were married on July 15, 2017 and regret our use of Montclair Studios for our wedding photography and videography. Throughout the day, the photographer Monica did not give many directions. This can be seen in our photos. When we initially scheduled our wedding day we were told we would need at least three hours for our first look and bridal party photos. These photos took less than an hour and a half. The crew was ready to film at the venue less than a half hour before our wedding began, as guests were starting to arrive. At this time, they wasted nearly fifteen minutes trying to get the drone to actually work. We were rushed to take photos in the ceremony space before guests started to be seated. After our wedding, we waited well beyond the guaranteed 60 days to receive our photos. It took many phone calls and emails to actually receive the link to our photos. When asked what the delay was for, we were told this was a “busy time of year” for them and that t... Read more

    Thank you for your review Andrew. We are sorry you were not completely happy with the service we provided. Monica has been our main photographer and business partner for more then 4 years, her images are beautiful and throughout the wedding day she does give direction to all our couples and directs them. According to your statement , we have only used 90 minutes out of the 180 minutes allocated for romantic session and bridal party , family photos session . After checking the time on the photos , the only time when our team took a break photographing is when the cocktail hour was happening and they were setting up the room lighting and the break of that was 15 minutes. In your statement , you have mentioned , we charged the drone for 15 minutes and tried to get it going. We do charge the drone constantly throughout the day, because the flight time is 10 minutes. The images were posted on August 28, 2017 and you received an email with them on the same day that you have replied back to it on August 29 and your wedding was on July 17th so well within our promise time of 30 - 45 days. The video was completed on November 11 and you received the link via email. That was late and we did apologized numerous time about the delay and as a result of it offered the complimentary albums for your parents since we normally have them ready within 90 - 120 days and your video took 113 days. For the video , we offered the reviews and tried to make sure we offered you a happy overall experience.
