We have recently been filming more and more Indian weddings and by now we have really fallen in love with their colorful, rich culture. When Arun & Nishi initially met with us and wanted to do a same day edit video for their wedding reception, we were very excited for this challenge. Then they pulled out a little bigger challenge out of their pockets...

We had a chance to spend 3 days in Bay Area to capture this beautiful couples wedding. Their wedding was a mix of Indian culture and Chinese culture. It was amazing to be part of their wedding day capturing their story. Watching both families come together and hug was heart warming.It was a hot day in San jose and all of our cameras gave us overheating warning sign. I believe we did an amazing job with all of our team capturing all the footage we possibly could get in some of the roughest conditions.We created a short wedding film so you can enjoy their wedding story.Song choices: Linden (Licensed with The Music Bed)Photography: You+We Photography Cinematography: Aperina Studios Wedding Venue: Saratoga Country Club Reception Venue: Crowne Plaza Cabana Hotel We are an Indian Wedding Videography company that works closely with you to make sure that we capture your special days with intricate attention....

Starting out with the initial meetings to filming for 6 days and photographing for 7 days, our relationship with Mandeep and Roop was simply amazing. Over time we became really good friends and as the bride wrote to us after the wedding, we kind of became part of their family throughout all the events. That feeling made our job so much more enjoyable as we worked closely with them to make sure that we capture their special days with intricate attention to all the details that surround an Indian wedding. We brought home over 1TB of footage and over 21,000 photos in the end. It was a definitely a challenge in many aspects which made us try harder and be more creative, but we loved every second of it. I am very lucky to love what I do!Even though we had a busy schedule during the days of their events but my brother and I decided to surprise the couple and all the guests with a Same Day Edit video to show at their reception. The feedback we got was 'speechless'. Roop, Mandeep and many of the guests came up to us after the wedding reception and couldn't stop talking about the short film they just saw...

When I first met James and Selina (via Skype), right away I wanted to be their wedding cinematographer! They were a fun and lovely couple - a perfect match.I love what I do. When the couple loves what we do as well, it makes me want to do so much better! That's why we came 1 hour early just to grab a few creative shots of the beautiful Venue. We loved everything about the wedding. The decorations, the flowers, and especially the Bride and Groom! We worked hard all day - telling their story through our cinematography. I hope you enjoy this short film that we have produced from James and Selina’s Wedding. Feel free to leave comments below if you enjoy the film and this amazing couple.

Capturing weddings during the middle of the week usually means the wedding is going to be small, elegant, and personal. That is exactly how Adrian & Christiana's wedding was. The handsome groom flew in from London. The gorgeous bride flew in from the Caribbean. The groomsman flew in from Sweden and the bridesmaid (with her husband) from Canada for this destination wedding. There were a total of five people present at the wedding (six with the officiant). This is exactly how the bride pictured her wedding. We at Aperina Studios came with our three crew members to bring the total number of people to 9. This was the smallest wedding I think we have ever photographed or filmed but we had such an amazing time capturing the intimate wedding elopement these five best friends were having in the beautiful Madrona Manor in Healdsburg, CA.Enjoy the Next Day Edit and expand the post the view a lot more photos!Song choice: All Fair - Lovelite (Licensed with The Music Bed)Napa Valley Wedding Elopement Video, Elopement Videography, Elopement Cinematography, Wedding Elopement in Napa...

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...

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.

Driving to a wedding where we see beautiful rolling hills is amazing. We get excited because we know we will have stunning footage. We know we will have fun creating a wedding teaser! And we know that the wedding film will be simply amazing. At the end of the day when we were packing our bags with a flashlight, we knew 100% that we succeeded in filming that stunning footage. We were the best wedding videographers in Livermore, CA that day!

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....

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.

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.

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!
