Our base wedding cinematography package is a perfect all around package providing you with 2 cinematographers for 8 hours capturing all the essential elements of your wedding professionally and creatively. We create a gorgeous cinematic short film telling your wedding story.
We recommend this for large events of 300 or more guests. This allows us to capture more angles of your event and more importantly, more shots of your wedding guests.
Adding hours to your wedding day allows us to capture a few more moments that happen throughout the day, especially at the end of the reception.
A 3-5 minutes story of your relationship (interview based). Your wedding guests will enjoy getting to know you as a couple on your wedding reception. Projector not included.
Add a Blu-ray to your wedding package to enjoy the best possible HD experience.
Add a DVD to your wedding package. This classic delivery method ensures that your wedding video will be able to be watched on older “legacy” devices.
A hard drive full of ALL of the footage we captured on your wedding day. Unedited. 500 GB hard drive included.
For weddings outside of Northern California (plus travel expenses)
Send us an email with your wedding date, your information and the Wedding Cinematography Package options you are interested in. We will send you a proposal that you can accept and sign. A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to book Aperina Studios for your wedding day. The remaining balance is due 1 week prior to your event.
First: The biggest difference between Aperina Studios and other sacramento wedding videography companies is that we are ALL IN. This means we don’t have a million add-ons that you can add to your package to make your wedding film more beautiful. We simply come with all our wedding cinematography tools to make sure we capture your wedding in the best possible and creative way. This means that we may use a drone or jib for establishing shots without requiring you to add it into your package. So the samples you saw of our films on our website will be very similar to what you will be receiving as we follow this approach with every wedding.
Second: We use and embrace audio! We LOVE when couples write their own vows, write love letters to each other, the officiant says something profound, or there are personal speeches at the wedding reception. We are able to use all the amazing audio from your wedding day to help craft your wedding film.
Third: Editing. The editing plays just as important part in your wedding film as the actual filming does. Don’t get me wrong, you still need to have the skills to shoot, white balance, and compose shots properly, but the ability to craft a story from your wedding day footage is a skill in and of itself.
When you hire an award-winning wedding videography company for your wedding day, you are hiring Aperina Studios to tell your wedding story and to do it in a way no one else can or even will. We carefully craft your wedding film using the perfect shots, the perfect narrative, and the perfect music track. At the end, we are humbled when we can create a film that brings tears to yours eyes; in awe of the preserved priceless memories.
When you invest in Aperina Studios for your wedding videography – you deserve the best! As a leading wedding cinematography company, we have invested in cinema grade cameras and lenses that give your wedding a more cinematic and hollywood look. More specifically, we use Canon EOS 5D Mark IV cameras and Canon L series lenses. We also use professional grade audio equipment, stabilizers, sliders, monopods and tripods. Lighting equipment is used as well to capture your event in the best possible light while keeping your wedding mood!
We need to be honest with you. We are a little bit selfish regarding our motives for NOT making your wedding day a “production” either. We simply can not afford for you or your guests to notice us. So relax. Wedding films, if chosen correctly, are the best investment you can make in your wedding. We don’t set up shots, and we don’t have cameras in anyone’s face. We certainly don’t conduct cheesy table interviews. We try to capture the “genuine” moments you have felt watching our films in our portfolio.
Yes and No. For both creative and legal reasons, we have full control over the music selection for your film. Not only do we have a better perspective on the ‘flow’ of your wedding day, we also utilize properly licensed music. Additionally, all the beautiful films you have seen on our website, we have personally selected the music. The newlyweds absolutely love our music selection. However, feel free to send us a few tracks. They will inspire us with our music selection.
Not by default. The morning preparations, first look, garter/bouquet tosses, cake-cutting, and party dancing are filmed subjectively for creativity, not for entire coverage. The parts of the day that are filmed entirely are the ceremony, formal dances and any toasts. These, in their entirety, are included in the Documentary Edits (Documentary Edits are offered as an add-on to our base package). However, feel free to add on “RAW footage” into your package. We’ll give you a hard drive full of ALL of the footage we captured on your wedding day. Unedited.
A cinematic short film is usually delivered to you 3-4 weeks after your wedding. A wedding feature film requires us to put in a lot more time to tell your wedding story perfectly. Depending on the season, we generally deliver a feature film 3-6 months after your wedding.
Absolutely! Every film is delivered online on your custom Aperina Studios page (here is an example). If you have ordered any add-ons, they will also appear there as well. You can share your private link with your family, friends or strangers. Our website is designed to work with all mobile devices as well. Best of all, all your wedding videos online are in HD (High Definition) and are downloadable to your computer. We actually recommend downloading all your videos we created for you onto your computer.
We travel all over the world! In addition to filming weddings all over US from coast to coast, we have filmed in Russia, Ukraine, St. Lucia, Guam, Mexico, and Punta Cana! So we will go wherever you’ll have us! We provide a custom package built specifically for your event so that you will know exactly what the expenses are. Most events within a 2 hour drive from Sacramento, CA do not incur a traveling charge.
Yes. Our wedding photography is amazing. What is even more amazing is that we are brothers and we work perfectly together as a team. Instead of competing for shots, we compliment each other, creating exceptional photographs and extraordinary films to make your story truly and unforgettably yours. As an incentive, we give you a $150 discount on both cinematography and photography packages (so $300 in total saving for simply booking both). Check out our photography packages.
