About Us

 

 

 

Maio Media (pronounced MY-oh) is a premium Wedding Cinematography company ran by Husband and Wife team, Brandon and Melissa Maiocchi. Using a Cinematic style of videography and editing, Maio Media will produce a high quality video for you to cherish for the rest of your lives.

Melissa graduated from Cal State Fullerton where she studied Film. She interned for another company that filmed weddings, and almost instantly fell in love with the wedding industry. The business was born right after that internship ended. It was then known as Video by Melissa and it wasn't until 2014 when she met Brandon.

When they met, they quickly realized that they shared the passion for capturing memories, among other interests and It was only a matter of weeks until he started shooting with her. Brandon has 15 years experience in the IT industry but has always had a passion for photography/video and throughout the years has taken on many personal projects. He enjoyed taking on the challenge of learning the ins and outs of weddings and how to capture these special moments. Melissa and Brandon married in November of 2016, which was the perfect time to change our name to Maio Media, to reflect our official joining of forces.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The video that changed my life was a video my Grandmother recorded the day I was born. I was able to watch my parents cry happy tears, hear such wonderful words of joy coming from other friends and family members, and I even got to witness a surprisingly satisfying look of confusion on my older sister’s face. Watching this moment felt so powerful to me, as if I had traveled through time.
Ever since then I brought a video camera with me everywhere. A photo captures a still moment, but a video has the ability to tell the whole story of that moment

For as long as I can remember photography and video has always fascinated me which quickly turned into a life long passion. It’s sounds cliche but through videos we get to take these little snap shots in time that we get to enjoy for the rest of our lives whenever we want. From my first wedding I shot with Melissa I knew I was hooked, 3 years later and countless weddings and I’m still hooked more than ever. I’m so thankful to have met such an amazing woman and be apart of this business where I get to not only apply my passion and knowledge, but meet so many wonderful couples and share in such a special day.
