Brenner was awesome! He helped ensure the pricing aligned with our budget. The video quality and production was exactly what we needed. Thanks again Brenner!

Chris and team did a great job with my family's pics and photo shoot. He was patient and worked well with my kids who are under 5 year old. I would highly recommend Chris and 8 Media group. More...

I was recently hired by 8 Media Group as a second shooter for a wedding in Middleburg, VA. I have to say that Chris and 8 Media groups knowledge and professionalism is hands down the best I've seen in the Washington, DC area. You will not be disappointed in hiring them for your next videography project. More...

If you're thinking about hiring 8 Media, you should. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Office of Public Policy in Washington, D.C. hired 8 Media to capture photos and videos of our advocacy fly-in event in May. Brenner & Chris were super responsive and able to work with us with limited notice. Not only were they professional, but treated our advocates, most which are blood cancer patients/survivors or family members of folks living with blood cancer, with patience and compassion. The final products were fantastic and exactly what we were hoping for. We look forward to working with them again in the future! More...

Brenner and 8 Media really pulled through for my organization on a last-minute filming request at a venue where we knew none of the A/V capabilities. They were extremely flexible to our needs, responsive, and punctual. Very happy with their work and will definitely reach out again in the future! More...

If you are a soon-to-be married person, I suggest you consider investing in a videographer. Not just any videographer, but a quality one. One that will bring back all the emotions you had that day, back to life. 8 Media Group is quality. They were there throughout the best moments of one of the most important days of my life, capturing every special detail. They created a highlight video that made me want to relive my day over and over again. I loved how I was able to watch my memories from different angles. I cried all over again and I'm seriously elated at the turnout of my video.  They also have a bunch of add-ons (drones/aerial view, special edits, etc.) to create a package perfect for you. 8 Media Group is super professional and will do a consultation with you in person or either via facetime or phone call. They are based in the Washington D.C. area but they travel for a rate as well. 8 Media Group also offers photography services so you can create a whole package without hiring more than one vendor.Not getting married? They also do video coverage for all types of marketing, corporate related and any type of event. For people who want their wedding to come to life forever, 8 Media Group is the answer. More...

Absolutely LOVE our wedding video! If you're on the fence about hiring a videographer, DO IT! And use 8 Media Group! They captured our wedding day so beautifully and we got to see so much that we would have otherwise missed if not for the video. The shots, editing, and pace was perfect. I've had the video for a month and am still tearing up every time I watch it! Thank you, Brenner and Chris! More...

We seriously love our wedding video!! These guys are professionals and you can tell how much work and effort they put into creating an awesome final product. We initially requested a cinematic highlight feature and then at the last minute asked them to upgrade it to a full feature film. Brenner was super accommodating and easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, both he and Chris came to shoot for the entire day. We are so impressed with the quality of their work and even my hard-to-please mom has been complimenting the videos non-stop. Really glad we decided to have 8 Media Group capture our special day as we will treasure the video forever! If you need videography services, look no further...8 Media Group is the best! Thank you so much Brenner and Chris!!

We loved our wedding video! It was touching and showed a little bit of everything on our wedding day. The only qualm I had was getting a response in the beginning of the process from Chris. It took a couple of emails for him to respond to set up a time to talk about what we envisioned for our video. Other than that, I would definitely recommend media8 group! They are great and you won't be disappointed with your video! More...

Working with Brenner and 8 Media Group for our wedding videographers was absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for anything more! Brenner met us prior to us signing a contract to get to know us as well as help paint a picture of our wedding day. Since we were still a year out, we did not have all the details that he was asking for, however, that was not an issue as he said we could fill in the blanks with those answers later down the line. Throughout the planning process, Brenner was so great about being responsive and working with our other vendors. On the day of the wedding, Brenner and his second videographer were present from beginning to end. They were so easy going and a pleasure to work with! Brenner and his videographer worked seamlessly with our photographers making sure to capture every moment. During the reception, we barely even knew they were present.

We received our wedding video two months after the wedding and it was absolutely perfect! The quality was spectacular and the video included the most precious moments of our day. We could not have asked for a better team to work with or a more perfect wedding video to look back on for years to come. Thank you so much Brenner and 8 Media Group photography for absolutely everything!

I cannot recommend 8 Media Group enough. The video they produced for our wedding is absolutely phenomenal. Even before hiring 8 Media Group, I noticed how prompt, thorough, and just simply kind they were. They did everything possible to make our video as perfect as possible. Not only did they work with me when I hired them only about 2 months before our wedding, but they continued to do so throughout the process. They took time to get to know my husband and I weeks before our wedding day so that they could get a feel for who we were as a couple and how to best meet our needs. On our wedding day, they blended in and felt just like family, and for that, we are so thankful! Thank you 8 Media Group for capturing the best day of our life and for giving us a treasure we will cherish for a lifetime to come. I cannot recommend them enough. More...

My husband and I are so lucky to have found Brenner & 8Media Group! They were extremely easy to work with, professional, punctual, and always answered my many questions! The quality of work from 8Media Group is exceptional. I looked at tons and tons of wedding videos from other companies and none of them had the same caliber as 8Media Group. We are thrilled and so happy that we picked 8Media Group to capture our wedding day. It was absolute perfection! More...

Brenner's quality of work is well above the norm. He is able to stitch the comments into the event where it make it a lot more interesting. I have shown it at work and back in Hawaii, each one was impressed it is akin to PBS quality of work. We are going to use his services again. More...

Brenner was an incredible addition to our special day! He was open-minded and go-with-the-flow, while also providing professionalism and guidance! Not to mention, he was a great sport about an outdoor wedding on the rainiest day in October! He even offered me (the bride) words of encouragement about the rain that circled through and ended up in one of the speeches, it was spot on! Highly, highly recommend! More...

We can't say enough good things about Bren! From the very beginning, Bren was very accommodating and took the time to meet with us. He listened to what was important to us and gave us an overview of what to expect. This put us at ease. On the day of our wedding, Bren and his assistant arrived early to capture moments of the set up. They were so discrete about taking video, I hardly even noticed they were there! It was easy to tell he had experience and knew what he was doing. He knew what he wanted in his shoot and gave clear direction for everyone to follow. He worked very well with our photographer as well. we
We were absolutely blown away by the finished product! It was far beyond anything we could've imagined for our wedding highlight video. The shots they captured were stunning, the cinematography was amazing, and when it was all edited and put together.. nothing short of perfection. We were so surprised with a lot of the shots they took because we literally did not even know they were there. They perfectly captured every emotion from every angle. His video captured the love, joy, and fun of our day. We've heard endless praise from all our guests and everyone who has watched our video. If we had the chance to do it all over again, we would choose Bren to capture our day.

We hired Chris and Brenner to shoot our wedding day and we could not be happier with the finished product! Chris and Brenner are the ultimate professionals and knew exactly what shots to take to capture our special day. My husband and I were a bit nervous at first to hire videographers since we hate being on camera, but we are so glad we did! We barely even noticed Chris and Brenner as they made the entire process so seamless for us. They were very calm and relaxed throughout the entire day and they worked amazingly well with our photographers, which was key! Now we have an amazing video to share with all of our friends and family and a have a great keepsake of our wedding day. Thank you guys again for everything!! More...

We found Chris through Thumbtack and are so glad we did! Chris's work is exactly the style we were looking for, and his package pricing was in line with our budget. Chris was very responsive before our wedding and him and his team was with us the entire wedding day! The video was a little late, but we were floored by how he captured the emotions and all the special moments of our day, it was absolutely perfect! We would highly recommend 8 Media Group! More...

Let me start by saying that my husband and I really did not have a wedding video anywhere near the top of our priority list but knew it was important for our parents. With that said, 8 Media group...the best decision we made for our wedding! These guys were awesome to work with from the very start. Our main contact was Brenner and he was professional, responsive and organized throughout the whole experience. Both Brenner and Chris were present during our wedding day and were great! They were not only professional but they were friendly and kind. We never felt pushed or pulled for the sake of footage for the video but they managed to capture every important moment and more! When it comes to the end product...all I can say is AMAZING!!!!!! My husband and I were left speechless and received so many compliments from our friends and family! To end I will keep it simple and say you cannot go wrong with 8 media group!!! More...

Chris and his team are the BEST in the industry. Not only is he super talented in capturing our Big Day on video, but he is extremely professional and provided the best customer experience. He is organized and creative and really caught the moments that were really important to us. While some people sometimes feel like they need to choose between a photographer or videographer, I know that if we did not hire 8 media group, we would have regretted not being able to watch our wedding video over and over again.. Hire them, you will not be disappointed! More...

Chris is exceptionally talented and he and his team captured all of our important moments. He is professional, creative and so enjoyable to work with. I've already recommended 8 Media Group to several of my friends and plan to continue to do so! More...

Hands down, one of the best wedding videos I have ever seen was the one Review 8 Media Group created for my husband and I. I'm not just being partial either. It displayed every aspect of our wedding. Several people who have watched it, including myself, said they smiled hard, laughed, and cried all within those 5 minutes. A wedding video is supposed to emote those types of feelings and they truly captured that. They were also so easy to work with and made you feel super comfortable with the whole experience. One of the best parts of it all, we got our wedding video back sooner than I had anticipated. No rush job. Great quality. I highly recommend Review 8 Media Group for any occasion that you would like to remember forever. I might even get married all over again just to see what else they can do! More...

Brenner, and his crew, were very responsive from start to finish. They're attentiveness and flexibility made planning for our special day so much easier! Our wedding and residence is about 45 mins from their homebase of Fairfax, and Brenner met me in my town to discuss the details and process. This was a HUGE relief for me, him traveling to my town just to answer my questions and lock-in our date showed me his level of commitment and professionalism. At the time, I was considering another vendor, but as soon as I sat down with Brenner, I knew that 8 Media Group was the right choice for us. Very happy with the results and we love our wedding video! More...

Honestly, we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Our wedding video was amazing. First off, our ideas were heard. What I mean by that is, when dealing with contractors, something is always missing/forgot in the finished product. These guys not only worked with our ideas, the finished product far exceeded the expectation. They made the experience easy, they were non-obtrusive and the deliverable was very professional. I'm not going to lie, we got a separate photographer for our wedding, and she did a great job, but what these guys did blew the photography away. I never thought I would still be watching my wedding video almost a year after my wedding, it's that good. More...

Chris did such an amazing job with our Wedding video and selected a beautiful Bollywood song to go with it. The 8 Media Group team is so professional, friendly and enthusiastic about producing a high quality product. We were extremely happy with the final product/cinematic highlight video, which Chris produced in a very timely manner. The camera shots are breathtaking, and the angles, colors, and lighting have been captured so beautifully. Chris's eye for detail is impeccable, as he tastefully matches each clip to the rhythm of the song. Chris is very passionate about his work and went the extra distance to understand the intricacies of the South Indian Hindu wedding. Prior to the event he came to the venue to study the details of where, when and how each part of the ceremony would take place and his team beautifully captured each and every moment. The sequencing of the clips of the events in the highlight video was so perfectly and meticulously done, and the 6 minute highlight video beautifully captures all of the most critical parts of the ceremony as well as all the emotions and all the fun we had that day. We are so happy with our experience with 8 Media Group and would definitely recommend this team!

You are really a very talented videographer. We are extremely thrilled with the quality of work, the lighting, angles, choice of shots and above all the artistic approach. We thank you immensely for your promptness and the professionalism in the delivery of a superior product. We are 100% satisfied with your work! Thank you so much, Chris.
