About Us

 

Montage and More was created by the business owner, Shelley Weitz. 

 

Planning my daughters Bat Mitzvah was a crazy, stressful, but highly enjoyable experience!  I chose to design my daughter's Montage as I wanted something more than the cookie cutter slideshow that was being offered by others, so I created a unique and fun montage for our audience to enjoy.  I found my friends were requesting me to make theirs, so the lights went off, and I decided it was time to incorporate my previous business management, event planning and marketing experience into my new venture, and shortly after, Montage and More was born!  Music is my passion and I love being creative and helping others share and enjoy their life experiences with family and friends.  I take great pleasure in taking pictures of my family and friends, in fact, they laugh about me being snap happy and always ready to take that perfect picture!

 

Saving and cherishing those special moments to remember is what will always keep your memories alive.  Your custom montages are created with cutting edge technology and include countless hours of time and passion that will leave you with a timeless one of a kind life story.   I encourage you to share the montages of your life experiences and capture those special moments forever!  Contact us today to book your Montage or Day of Event Planner, or any other custom design service you may need!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Montage?


A montage is a collaboration of pictures created and choreographed to music, using special effects and transitions between segments and placed into a slideshow/video format that preserves your life celebrations into a one of a kind presentation. A video montage can be used in a variety of settings, such as weddings, wedding showers, wedding rehearsal dinners, baby showers, birthday milestones, Bar or Bat Mitzvah's, retirements, graduations, engagements, sweet sixteen, family interviews, memorial services, corporate retreats, baby montage for grandparents, quinceaneras, or as a tribute to a loved one.




What is the first steps to creating a Montage?


The first step is to look for pictures that you love and that will captivate your audience. Look for pictures that are of a good quality. Try not to use selfies. We suggest creating folders on your computer in the following formats below. Landscape pictures show better on a screen than portrait, due to the screen dimensions. Your typical montage will contain 125-150 pictures and will run between 9-12 minutes. However, each montage can be customized to your liking. It is helpful to number your group your pictures chonologically or in categories/segments as shown below in your folders, for example 1baby.jpeg, 2baby.jpeg etc. for your specific themes. Here some examples: Bar/Batmitzvah's Theme: 1. Baby pics and Baby pics with parents 2. Siblings (Child with siblings) 3. Family (Child with family/grandparents/cousins/aunts and uncles) 4. Friends (Child with special friends at school/camp/parties) 5. Growing Up & Milestone pics (Child in sports activities/first and last day of school etc.) Weddings Theme: 1. Bride growing up 2. Groom growing up 3. Both bride and groom with friends 4. Pics of both bride and groom as a couple Think about what music you would like to incorporate. Please ask for further information for any other Montage needs so we can create a unique one of kind experience for you!




Can music be added to the Montage?


Music can be added to the Montage. We can help with song selection depending on the theme of your montage. A typical montage runs between 9-12 minutes and will use four songs. The number of songs will be depend on the quantity of clips and videos being used.




Can you help me design my logo?


We can help you design a logo for your Montage. We will discuss themes and see what will incorporate best into your package. You may use this logo for your montage or anything else you may need to incorporate in for your event.




How much time does it take to create a Montage?


It will take 2-4 weeks to create your Montage. All pictures, video clips and music selections need to be sent to us 6 weeks prior to your event. If a rush order is needed, an additional charge will be added.




Can I add a video clip to my Montage?


Video clips can be uploaded and incorporated into your Montage. Clips should be of clear quality in a MP4/MOV file and taken horizontally/landscape so that it will give you a full screen effect when shown on a screen. Each clip should be no longer than about 60 seconds for a regular Montage. Tribute videos and other Montage projects may have different guidelines.




Can you scan in my pictures?


We do offer a scanning service. We will scan in 20 pictures at no cost to you if needed. Additional pictures will be scanned in at $2.50 per picture.

Testimonials

Our montage was even better than what we had hoped for!  Shelley is a perfectionist, fixing every red eye, timing every transitional just right, and placing the music perfectly.  The finished product from Montage and More was great for both audiences:  fun for our son and his friends and sentimental for us and our family.  Shelley was not only thorough and organized but it's also obvious that she had fun adding the special touches that really personalized the montage for our Bar Mitzvah.

"Shelley was a pleasure to work with!  She is very creative and an absolute perfectionist.  The photo montage she created for us was amazing and the highlight of our party.  I highly recommend Montage and More!"

Erica Hakimi and Josh Gorewitz 

The montage of photos that Shelley put together for us for the Rehearsal Dinner was delightful. All of the guests enjoyed seeing the photos of Josh and Kyndall growing up and when they were dating and engaged. There were some watery eyes in the group, mainly parents and grandparents, but mostly smiles and “oohs” and “awws” of enjoyment from everyone. It was such a great addition to our wonderful evening!
