"I like classics but I always add a twist."
Much like fashion, we always imagined filmmaking around the concept that each piece could have its own unique identity. Something that was both personal, yet distinctly unique and memorable in nature. A film beyond simply a documentation, but something that heightened your sense of memory. We treasure your stories and experiences. That makes our goal simple, elevate your unique experience with our style.
All films are uniquely their own. This is who we are. And this is what defines our work.
“There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.”
-Oscar De La Renta
Life is an incredible journey. Whether through the love of family, the experiences of travel, or something as simple as the beauty of fashion, we are inspired by these incredible elements. It's these inspirational & memorable aspects of our lives that defines us. They drive us from one memory to the next moment.
Life is full of so many iconic moments. For a woman, there are few greater than her wedding day. Symbolically, a father handing her daughter off to another man is such a powerful moment. For the couple, this is the beginning of their unique and special journey.
Whether a Same Day Film, concept Save The Date, or our Wedding Films, our team takes an incredible amount of pride of creating a custom tailored film that is both modern, yet classic in nature. As true filmmakers, we create films that define our couples. Fun, dramatic, powerful, light, cinematic; our films are custom because they are driven by the couple's unique personality and experiences.
"Luxury will always be around, no matter what happens in the world."
Made up from a group of talented filmmakers from our Merge Studios’ commercial division, our team has worked on campaigns for Mercedes-Benz & Absolut. At Merge SOCIAL, we have been fortunate enough to create over 150 unique wedding films for our clientele.
Focusing on only a limited run, our team creates no more than 25 wedding films a year. This guarantees that we don't compromise our process and goal of not only creating the highest quality product, but providing an exceptional customer experience from start to finish.
“The key is falling in love with something, anything. If your heart’s attached to it, then your mind will be attached to it.”
Merge SOCIAL is lead by creative director, Julien Diaz. Born into a family with a background in fashion and love for traveling, Julien couldn't help but be intrigued by the creative arts. This ultimately lead him towards film, an art form which would become his passion.
His love for film took him to the University of Central Florida where he studied film and ultimately graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in film production. An entrepreneurial spirit at heart, Julien founded Merge Studios, a commercial film production company along with Merge SOCIAL, a luxury wedding film boutique.
Through Merge Studios, Julien has worked on & produced award winning campaigns for Mercedes-Benz, Absolut, & MTV. At Merge SOCIAL, Julien & his team have won various awards for their work along with redefining the expectations of wedding filmmaking. Most recently, Julien has continued to push the boundaries of creativity at Merge SOCIAL, with their Same Day Films & Save The Dates.
