films made with love

“The stunning beauty and purposeful complexity of each shot within our wedding film is almost too elegant to describe. The camera traverses landscapes to reveal new parts of our story with such detail, one would think it’s a staged production.”

– ARI, BRIDE

RECENT FILMS

GINA + Mark

Gina and Mark are so in love. They were married below the hundred year old oak tree at Ru's Farm in Healdsburg, CA. After the ceremony, the couple began their reception in the venue's historic barn where Mark shared a special song he composed and recorded for Gina. Watch their film until the end to hear Mark's original song.

KAITLIN + FORD

Kaitlin and Ford enjoyed a fall wedding in the hills of Oakland at the Claremont Country Club. In their film, you'll get to hear the incredible voice of Franc D'Ambrosio, one of Broadway's longest running Phantoms. We layered real scans of 16mm film grain over our cinematography to heighten the timeless atmosphere this couple created for their big day.

Hi, I’m Sean and I’ve shot over 500 weddings within the last 15 years. When you give us a call or email us, you’ll be dealing directly with me. I personally still shoot as many of our weddings as I can and I edit 100% of them. If I’m not available to shoot your wedding, we won’t take the job unless a cinematographer who I trust is available to work with you. We aren’t interested in hiring videographers we’ve never met and sending the footage to some faraway place to be edited cheaply (That’s seriously what the big companies do, be careful).

The films you see here vary in style because we do our best to customize them to match the personalities of the couples we work with. We love to establish a dialogue to better understand what type of coverage you’re after. When you see the finished film, we want you to get chills, tears, laughs and smiles. Most of all, we want you to fall in love all over again every time you watch it.

Founder + filmmaker

ALAYNA + SERGIO

These two have the kind of love story that will make you cry. It's the kind of love story that transcends barriers of time and distance. The energy of their love fueled us to create this epic short film of their Bodega Harbour wedding.

laurie + Jesse

Laurie married Jesse at V. Sattui in St Helena, CA (one of the best wedding venues in wine country, if you ask us). Their wine ceremony is paired with a short segment capturing the grape harvest that took place that evening. Later, their reception included one of the best lion dances we've seen up to this point!

MEGHAN + KYle

This couple came from Canada to get married in the Napa Valley and they did it right! Kyle got ready in a vineyard estate, then rushed to the Calistoga to marry Meghan. Originally the plan was to get married at Paradise Ridge, but when it was lost in the devastating wildfires, they chose the equally lovely Calistoga Ranch. You'll see the couple's tribute to Paradise Ridge toward the end of the film.

Tho + Frances

We love filming Monterey weddings. Tho and Francis got married at the Hyatt Regency, where their friends and family showered them with love and adoration. Afterwords, they had an incredible lion dance and killer dance party!

KALEANA + GRANT

Through the foggy vineyards, Kaleana and Grant got ready for their wedding along the Napa River. Then, they went to V. Sattui in St Helena to tie the knot. Our favorite moment was when Kaleana gave her dad the tie dye jacket to where during their father/daughter dance. <3

JANE + BRIAN

These two made poetry every time they spoke about each other. We rolled with it and made a poetic film. The wedding took place at the brilliant Madrona Manor in Healdsburg, CA. We'll never forget this day.

LACEY + CORY

Lacey and Cory got married at Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa, an incredible venue with stunning vineyard views and breathtaking scenery. FYI: If you include your dog in your wedding day, we'll be extra, extra happy!

HANNAH + JOSEPH

Hannah and Joseph had a rustic wedding at a barn in Petaluma, CA. This group of people know how to have a great time. The toasts in this film are some of the best we've ever heard.

MONIKA + JOSHUA

This pair had a romantic, intimate wedding atop the hill at Copain Wines in Healdsburg. The oak tree ceremony site and the views of Sonoma County are more than suitable for those looking for the wine country experience.

Maryjo + TODD

When we were asked to film Maryjo and Todd's wedding, they asked us to tone down the art-house style cinematography that we're well known for. They wanted a straightforward documentary showcasing the party prior to their wedding day, which took place at Bloomfield Farms in Petaluma. The following day, we ventured to Napa Valley's Meadowood and witnessed one of the most spectacular ceremonies and receptions we've been fortunate to attend. Multiple bands, quartets, champagne delivered by burros, Maryjo's wonderful dress with pockets, these are a few of our favorite things.

ARIEL + CRAIG

Ariel and Craig are adorable and so was every aspect of their wedding. The ceremony took place at the Garden Pavilion in Sonoma, one of the most visually appealing venues in wine country. Keep watching for some Smirnoff chugging action.

CORINA + JEREMY

We love working with couples who are open to showing their love, not only does it make our job easier, it makes it meaningful. Corina and Jeremy got married among the vines at Santa Rosa's Vintners Inn. This was one of our first films to feature heavy duty lens modification resulting in some dream-like, in-camera effects.
