20 May Carlos & Victoria’s Same Day Edit

Carlos and Victoria initially did not want to have video for their wedding. All wedding videos they saw before made them not want one for their wedding, but seeing a Same Day Edit on a friends wedding, they realized that they wanted a wedding video for themselves. So they booked the best wedding videography team (humble brag) 4 weeks before the wedding with a Same Day Edit. I was excited to do a Same Day Edit for them - but also nervous. I met up with the lovely couple at Starbucks where we talked a little and got to know each other. Listening to their funny story, I realized that their wedding is simply going to be fun and energetic. It was exactly that. I love doing Same Day Edits. They are stressful, they are hard, you get headaches, you barely eat, but best of all - the reactions from the bride, groom and the guests are totally worth it. Because the the morning prep, ceremony and reception were in different location, I was worried that I might not have enough time to edit. I left in the middle of the ceremony to the reception venue - copying cards to my MacBook on my way to Grand Island Mansion. Arriving at the beautiful Venue, I got straight to work. I knew that show time was at 9pm and I had less than 4 hours to edit. I simply spent the first 45 min. organizing all the footage. I usually get straight to editing, but I knew that organization will allow me to find shots 4x faster. I was editing away in Final Cut Pro X ( I love FCP X - It did not crash once!). At 8:15, my edit was completed. I set the Same Day Edit to Export, grabbed a camera and helped my team film fire dancers and fireworks at the back of the Grand Island Mansion. I was excited for show time! At 9:00pm, everyone moved inside into the mansion, we dimmed the lights and pressed play! A few seconds into the film, I knew everyone loved it. Especially the bride and groom. The Grand Island Mansion wedding...

09 Apr Sergey & Lena’s Short Film

Many times, I want to share my edits right away. I get so excited that I want everyone to see it hot off the press! However with this film, I held off for a few days before posting it. To me, the video felt like it was still a rough draft even though everyone in our office agreed it was perfect and ready to post.Sometimes when I create a film, I like to think of it as if I'm writing an essay. I would never turn something in, knowing that its worth a B-, but expect to get an A+. There are people that would do that, but not me. I'm a perfectionist. And when it comes to my films, they always have to be an A+.So I spent a few more days tweaking and (re)editing this film until I reached my standard of perfection. I let my wife heavily critique it and help me fix all the little thing that bothered me (and her). And after a few days of re-watching the film for what it seems like a thousand times,  I can confidently post it knowing that it's an A+. I love how amazing Sergey and Lena's short wedding film turned out! All this taught me that in order to be the best Sacramento Wedding Videography Company out there, my team and I have to consistently make these A+ films. That's a MUST in our company and we wouldn't settle for less.We traveled to Seattle, Washington to film this wedding. Sergey and Lena trusted the best Sacramento Wedding Videography company to tell their wedding story and we enjoyed doing just that.Enjoy this short wedding film of this beautiful couple.

01 Sep Ilya & Anna’s Wedding Teaser

Online dating is possible (as the Groom says). This couple met on Facebook after the grooms Dad went to Anna’s brothers wedding. He saw Anna and thought that she was pretty enough for his son. So he told Ilya to find Anna online. He did, so he sent her a Facebook friend request. After a small waiting period in Anna’s friend request queue, Ilya was accepted as a friend. Anna noticed a little thing that she liked in Ilya’s photos – Ilya cooking. That was enough for Anna to say yes to a date with Ilya. As you can tell, Ilya got many more dates and of course a YES on his marriage proposal to Anna....

09 Nov Vitaliy & Svetlana’s Wedding Teaser

Our team always tries to guide the couple through their wedding day so that we can get as much footage as we can to create a rich film full with a variety of content. Fortunately, with Vitaliy and Svetlana, this was very easy for us to do. They put their full trust into us and listened to the advice we gave them when we met up with them a few days before the wedding. They told us how they met, their favorite moments together, their experience being engaged and so on. This helped us to get to know them better as a couple and gave us some time to think about what ideas and story line we want to bring out while filming so we'd be able to make the best film possible.

25 Oct Roman & Natalie’s Wedding Teaser

Roman and Natalie's long distance relationship finally ended, and a new, more amazing life together began. Their love for one another was seen throughout the day and there was no mistake that they were meant for each other. Even though they just saw each other only 6 times before their wedding, it felt like they have known each other for forever. Talking to Natalie before the wedding about the video and hearing their story, I got excited and really wanted to film their wedding. And honestly, the excitement didn't fade away. The wedding went smoothly and I saw their story in many aspects of the wedding. I loved that. I believe that every wedding should be portray the love story of the couple that is getting married. And their's was a perfect example. Roman is a Pastor of a young church in New Jersey. Knowing that, I realized that it would be great to start off the video with a Bible verse; a Bible verse that was very special to both Roman and Natalie.

21 Oct Nik & Inna’s Wedding Teaser

This is Nik and Inna. Happy. And this is their wedding teaser.

Well of course, but what's cool is that we love filming weddings! Including this one. When I edited the first version of this teaser, I wasn't to happy. I didn't even want to post it online. So I waited couple days, and pulled off something I love. Totally starting from scratch, choosing a new song, and bringing couple new shots. After completing the teaser version 2, I was satisfied and here it is for you to enjoy. Enjoy and share!

25 Sep Jonathan & Gina’s Wedding Teaser

In most weddings we know exactly whats going on, but this wedding introduced us to many new traditions. Hearing a short history of the traditions from the groom, we understood that it's very important that we capture every moment. Working with the couple was simple. Jonathan treated us with so much respect at the wedding that I was honestly surprised but humbled at the same time and just wanted to do even better. The entire wedding was really fun. Enjoy the short teaser. A longer film will be coming later, as of course, this teaser doesn't even cover 5% of what happened  at the wedding.

05 Sep George & Vera’s Wedding Teaser

Vera emailed me around 8 months before the wedding giving us a nice compliment and of course inquiring about her wedding date. Then she told me the wedding is in Portland, Maine. I was shocked. All the way from there! How did they find us? Well thank you Yuriy Manchik for your referral. Of course they signed the contract, gave us more compliments, and got us excited for the trip.Couple days before the trip, hurricane Irene was threatening our travel. Definitely got us worried, but we came there safely. We beat the storm by around 20 hours in one of the states we had a layover.

15 Aug Vladimir & Lily’s Wedding Teaser

I never start working on a film or wedding teaser if I don't have any inspiration. Usually it's from a song, sometimes from other things like movies (Shrek 4). This time, inspiration came very simply - through a txt message. My sister texted me a "very" cute song and it totally inspired me to start working on Vlad & Lily's wedding teaser. I had a different song in mind for Vlad and Lily, but "Rest Of My Life" by Bruno Mars took over my original plan and I had to edit the teaser to it. Many times I know what song I'll be using for a couple, but after studying the couple on their wedding day more closely, I realize I chose the wrong one. I try to choose a song to tell the couples story accurately. That's exactly what happened here and I believe this song choice is perfect for this wedding teaser.
