Ricky, the groom, wanted to surprise his wedding guests with an epic dance performance at his wedding reception. His plan was to join his old dance team from UC Irvine during their dance performance. He practiced the dance many times and perfected it. Especially the ended with this very good friend. At the reception, everything was going to plan. But to everyone's surprise, including the groom's, Preeti, the bride, is pulled into the dance by his friend and takes over his part of the dance performance from that point. You can see Ricky being taken back and being surprised, but completely enjoying the moment and continue dancing with his wife. What an EPIC moment and a surprise for the groom! Toward the end, everyone joined in a Flash Mob style dance and officially kicked off the dancing for the night. It was evident that the wedding guests enjoyed themselves as they danced the night away. Enjoy this choreographed Indian dance at this amazing Indian Wedding at the Greengate Ranch in San Luis Obispo, CA....

I have been an Indian wedding photographer since 2014 and still the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel is one of my most favorite wedding venues to photograph in. So you can imagine my excitement when an Indian bride tells me that I get to capture her wedding photos in one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Bay Area. When Sonia and Harman contacted me, I had a great feeling about their wedding. Not only was the couple exceptionally beautiful, they also had Amrit of Anais Events on their team to plan every detail of their wedding. Well, just as I predicted, I enjoyed photographing this beautiful Indian wedding. Beginning from the moment Sonia was getting into her red lengha to their first dance in the Grand Ballroom and even up to the final dance offs at the end of the reception. The love shared between the couple and the families was very evident and it was a pleasure capturing all of the beautiful, candid moments through my lens. Enjoy over 100 wedding photos from this beautiful Sikh Indian wedding at the Fairmont San Francisco hotel. ...

Harman and Navroop Indian Wedding was filled with a lot of laughter, fun, smoke bombs and even crying. But it was definitely a week that we enjoyed capturing amazing footage from this unforgettable Indian Wedding. To wrap up the many days of celebrations, we created this Same Day Edit that we premiered on their wedding reception. The most humbling and inspiring moment is watching the couple and guests enjoy the timeless memories we captured just moments before. Seeing the endless smiles, and sometimes even sweet tears, from the family members, reminds me why we do what we do as wedding cinematographers. Both the bride and groom were beaming as they watched the film we put together. The wedding couple, Harman and Navroop, were simply enjoyable to work with. Both were super sweet to us as well and treated us like family. Not only were they beautiful and natural in front of the cameras, they completely trusted us to capture a day that they will cherish for the rest of their life together. We, as a Bay Area Wedding Cinematography team, were honored to be part of their Indian wedding at the Elk Grove Sikh Temple. Enjoy Harman and Navroop’s Indian Wedding Same Day Edit. ...

I remember visiting the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco a few years ago and imagining how awesome it would be to film a wedding there. The historical architecture and quaint scenery had such a romantic touch. So imagine my eagerness when Amrit (an awesome wedding planner) connected us with Harman and Sonia and told us that the wedding will be at the Fairmont Hotel. I scheduled a call with the couple and made sure that we were the wedding cinematography and wedding photography team to film this beautiful Indian wedding in the lovely city of San Francisco. Though we have filmed numerous Sikh Indian Weddings before and have an outstanding wedding cinematography portfolio under our belt, we still approach every wedding with intentional creativity and attentiveness. Many times before, we have included the reception Grand Entrance into the Same Day Edit, and that on it’s own is very complex. However, I wanted to test our limits a bit further and for this wedding, we wanted to include the First Dance in the video as well. While I was planning it all out beforehand, the pre-filming butterflies and jitters set in. I knew this addition would demand a high-level of coordination and skill but I trusted in my team’s ability. As I looked at the reception itinerary, I figured out that I have only 12 minutes to edit the First Dance into the Same Day Edit before the video was set to play. Luckily, several speeches were scheduled to happen throughout the reception and the wedding planner shifted those speeches around to give me about 22 minutes before go time. Secretly, I was hoping those speakers to give a longer speech but with speeches, the length is usually unpredictable. It turned out, I only got 18 minutes to edit the film, but fortunately, that was plenty of time to work our magic out onto the screen. Not only was I able to include the Grand Entrance but I also edited in the First Dance flawlessly. One of the most humbling and inspiring moments for our team is watching the couple and guests enjoy the...

Our challenge here was to take our Same Day Edits onto another level – have the Same Day Edit transition into shots that are in REALTIME during the First Dance at the Grand Island Mansion Wedding! We mixed live from our Drone in the sky, Crane camera, Close up camera and Stabilizer camera creating an amazing experience for the wedding couple and party. This was challenging, but we pulled it off seamlessly....

Ronak and Bani blew us away with their Indian/Hindu wedding! We filmed for 5 days in a row, capturing beautiful moments of the culture, the family, and the couple. We literally filmed 2 weddings in 1. Indian Wedding Cinematography is becoming more and more of our speciality. We love setting the bar high and I believe that this cinematic wedding video sets the bar high. Enjoy this short film of a beautiful Indian Wedding....

I have been filming weddings for over a decade now but you wouldn't believe the jitters I get the morning before filming a wedding. I still wake up before each wedding nervous and anxious. But, that excitement is even heightened when we plan a complex Same Day Edit that requires our team to be on our toes every second to catch exactly the right moments that will be included in that edit. It's a film that is still in the editing process 15 minutes before "show-time" but we challenge ourselves to include moment like the Grand Entrance and First Dance into the Same Day Edit and show our masterpiece just minutes after it happens. Those 15 minutes are stressful but rewarding when we see the couple thrilled and captivated by what we managed to capture. It's a humbling and rewarding experience for us but more importantly, the bride and groom love seeing the highlights of their day just moments after they occur. See why they loved it! Additionally, there is a deeper look of what goes into filming and editing this Indian Same Day Edit. ...

When we arrived at Green Gate Ranch and started filming - we knew that the next 4 days would be a blast. The beautiful couple was full of energy, smiling and enjoying their wedding days. We loved becoming part of the family for a few days to capture the story of Ricky and Preeti! Behind the scenes, working as a cinematographer on this 18 hour wedding day, it was not all fun and games. Even though the wedding was beautiful and fun, it honestly pushed the limits of our team - physically, creatively and emotionally. Some weddings, a beginner can film them (they are simply easy). But this wedding, you had to be a true professional to pull off great footage. I'm a proud that our team did just that. We communicated all day on long range walkie-talkies (this was super important), walked/ran about 9 miles (my fitness tracker can prove that), and best of all, we captured some beautiful footage!...

Filming a wedding all over California pretty much sums up this wedding. Navkarn, Dilraj and their family challenged all of our team for over 1 week. We travelled to San Diego, back to Sacramento and finally back to San Diego to finish of their wedding reception with a Same Day Edit. It was really a blast and a challenging experience....

This is literally hot off the press. We just premiered it a few hours ago at the wedding reception a few minutes after their GRAND entrance. We literally had a few minutes to edit the grand entrance and the first dance into the same day edit before we had to show it. It was pretty amazing to have a team that was able to pull this off....

Los Angeles is usually a vacation spot for most people in December. For us it was more than a vacation. We got to travel with our team to Huntington Beach to film and photograph a beautiful four day Pakistani wedding. Photographing such a gorgeous and fun couple definitely felt like we were on vacation rather than working. Enjoy the beautiful moments I captured....

Along with other cultures and religions, we have been filming a lot of Indian weddings lately. One of the most popular products that we have been producing is the Same Day Edit video. It is something the bride and groom anxiously wait for and the guests love watching a video that highlights and shows the story of a complete 5-day Indian wedding. It is definitely a stressful challenge and takes a lot of time, effort, and a great team. We at Aperina Studios are never afraid of challenges and so we again took on the challenge to produce another unique Same Day Edit video for our beautiful couple. Even though we have produced many SDE videos, we always try to make each one unique and tell the original story of each couple's wedding weekend. Here is what we saw through our lens while filming the beautiful wedding of Paramveer and Raman. The bride couldn't stop smiling while watching the video during the wedding reception, we hope you love it as much as she did. Enjoy this Indian Wedding Same Day Edit....

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...

Five days, endless ceremonies and rituals. We were simply amazed by the beauty and majesty of this Indian Wedding. We have filmed many elaborate and fancy weddings, but nothing comes close to the decadence and attention to detail as an Indian wedding. No wonder it requires not one or two days, but more than five days to fit all the ceremonies and rituals in. For this same day edit, our goal was to make a 3 minute film jam-packed with emotions and stories. We wanted our audience to feel like they were present at all the days of the wedding, knowing everything that went on, even if they were never there. Of course, if they were not there, they were missing out on one heck of a party. Music, dancing, great ethnic food, and a beautiful bride and groom to top things off. We loved filming every aspect of the wedding, especially the reception. It was evident to all, that this couple was truly in love with one another. It was an honor capturing their special bond and being part of their BIG day. The groom's brother, Ankesh, convinced the family that they should hire Aperina Studios over any other Indian wedding videography company as he believed that we will tell the wedding story from a fresh and unique perspective. After the wedding, we had many guests come up encouraging us and telling us that we did an amazing job. It was a humbling experience. Arriving at the Reception venue to edit the Same Day Edit, I already knew that I will need to make it longer than the originally planned 3 minutes. Once again, I edited in Final Cut Pro X, honestly, the best editing software out there. It was flawless and blazing fast! I finished editing a few hours, before out 8pm deadline, So I color graded and even added a few more recent shots into it. It was a blast showing the SDE to the wedding guest. And now to you!
