“Working with Michael and Tara was an absolute dream, as they know just what to do and how to do it.
Our whole day felt effortless, which means a lot when you're having a celebration of this caliber.
And the most impressive thing of all?
The end result. It was pitch perfect. They even checked in to see if we felt there were any changes needed, anything we thought was missing...but nothing was needed. They nailed it. They are professional, organized, calm, and a joy to work with. We highly recommend Avenir Cinema.”

"What a fabulous experience we had working with Michael Bielecki! I originally hired him to be our videographer for our wedding in Vail, but he was obviously so good technically with photography, that I also hired him to put together our slide show for the rehearsal dinner. I could not have done this without him. He was extremely patient with me, always quick to reply to my endless questions, and super easy to work with at the wedding itself. But the best part was the end result. We absolutely adore our video of the wedding and watch it more than I am willing to admit.
He captured it all in such a beautiful way. I wouldn't change a thing!!"

“Michael and Tara were so much fun to work with. They were creative, innovative, and compassionate. We were so excited to have them be a part of our wedding day. Michael helped me to design many invitation and thank you cards using the pictures that they took.
We received so many compliments on all that we mailed out.
We were so lucky to find them and have their expertise to add to our day.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Michael for the video capture of my wedding day.
From the onset, Michael was very responsive to my inquiry, process questions, and expectations for the video.
Michael truly went "above and beyond" traveling to capture our wedding in southern CA.
He was friendly, professional, and seamlessly partnered with our wedding coordinators, photographers, family, friends, and wedding party. My husband and I were incredibly pleased with the final wedding video. He effectively captured our day in a unique and creative way. I get teary-eyed each time I watch it! He also provided the final files (very quickly!) and in a way that is easy to share. It was a pleasure working with Michael and I would highly recommend him to capture your special day.”

I absolutely LOVE Michael and Tara! Not only are they wonderful people to be around and work with, their work is
TO DIE FOR and the wedding video of our wedding was the best thing I had ever seen! I know I am a little biased because it was our wedding, but I am told the video brought tears to every eye that saw it and when we watched it on our one year anniversary, we were able to relive the day all over again. I have watched it a million times and want to watch it a million more. Choosing Michael and Tara for any special day will prove to be everything you could ever ask for and more :)

“Where do I even begin? Michael and Tara are amazing, awesome, wonderful, fun, creative, professional, and super easy to work with. And the quality of their work is second to none. Michael and Tara are incredible artists who truly care about their clients. As a professional photographer myself, one of the most important aspects of my wedding day was to have amazing photos. I searched high and low, seeking out only the best, and once I saw Michael and Tara's work, I knew they were the only photographers who could deliver on my vision. And they didn't disappoint. They were such an upbeat and positive part of our wedding day, unobtrusive in their work and super helpful in guiding us throughout the celebration. We received our photos before even returning home from the honeymoon and couldn't wait to share them with the world. They were absolutely stunning. We ordered many large canvases and prints and have them hanging all over the house. Everyone that sees the photos raves at how beautiful they are. Choosing them for our wedding day was hands down one of the best decisions we made. Having these beautiful memories to last a lifetime is such a blessing, and all thanks to Michael and Tara and their ability to capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments so beautifully.”

"We were lucky enough to have Michael and Tara shoot our wedding this summer and must say the experience was fantastic! While my wife has shot some weddings in the past I was vastly ignorant to the amount of work it takes to pull off a DIY wedding and get great images to remember it. Well, Michael and Tara helped tremendously on both accounts!
From the day we booked them to the receipt of the images they worked to make our lives easier. They were very organized and detail oriented, but also lent a creative flair to the whole proceedings. It was extremely warm at our wedding and they did a great job not only dealing with the heat themselves, but also with coordinating the guests of the wedding, the other vendors, and most of all with us. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to wrangle all the people involved on such a high stress day, but they performed flawlessly. Thanks again to Michael and Tara for helping our wedding come off flawlessly!"

"Michael is a talented and professional photographer! He added no extra stress to our wedding day. He is easy going, yet hard working. He seemed to be everywhere, and sometimes we hardly knew he was around taking photos!
We enjoyed his attention to detail, and we love our wedding photos!"
Mike and Danielle / Flagstaff, AZ
"Michael photographed our wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and did an amazing job!
They were always professional, easy to work with, and most of all took beautiful, creative photos that we'll keep forever!"
