About Us




Hello from us here at Dear Fox Films! We are run by owner Melissa Brand who started

Maio Media (pronounced MY-oh) is a premium Wedding Cinematography company ran by Melissa Brand. Using a mix of Cinematic and Documentary 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 California State University 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.

The video that changed my life was one 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
