Jacqueline and Jacob dreamt about getting married at Jacqueline’s fathers’ property in Sutter, CA. The 40 acre property featured rolling hills, oak trees and a stunning view. The couple knew this would be a perfect place for their Outdoor Wedding. But there was a catch - the location needed A LOT of work to host a wedding there. The couple started planning their wedding in 2019 leaving plenty of time to work out the details for their wedding this year. That was until COVID hit and many things around the world came to a standstill. In choosing to host their wedding at the father of the bride’s backyard, Jacob began his work. Even though the world stood still, Jacob slowly continued to improve the backyard area to get it ready for the big day in October. Bringing in heavy machinery to flatten groundwork and gravel to cover the road way, Jacob worked tirelessly all the way up till the day before the wedding. As a woodworker, he even built all of the wood aspects of the wedding, including the wooden stage and their reception table. On October 10, 2020, their vision became a reality. Under a large oak tree, surrounded by their family and friends, the couple exchanged their emotional wedding vows and said “I do.” This was the part of the wedding that the bride and groom looked forward to the most and it was clear that they were 100% in this forever. You could feel the connection and love they have for each other during those vows. By the strength of their love and commitment, Jacob and Jacqueline were finally husband and wife. For the creative photoshoot, we took a trip up a bumpy road in the back of a pickup truck (holding on for our deal life) to the top of the mountain overlooking the whole valley for a gorgeous view of the sunset. The scene was breathtaking and the shots that we captured of the couple were equally as stunning. The reception was held under oak trees with hanging string lights above the guests. It was...

In the midst of a pandemic, quarantine, and even a wildfire, this bride and groom were finally able to tie the knot at a beautiful Airbnb in Grass Valley, California. Overlooking the Lake of the Pines and the Sierras, this estate was the perfect location for a private, outdoor wedding celebrating the start of a new adventure. Chemistry- the place where it all started and the catalyst for their relationship. Vlad and Natalie briefly met in church but really got to know each other when taking a Chemistry class at Sierra College. Though Vlad did not end up getting into the class, their friendship continued well throughout their college experience. They got to know each other as friends for about a year and then dated for two until he popped the question March of this year. 2020 was an interesting year for the wedding industry as well as for many engaged couples. Though the start to their forever did not go as planned due to COVID-19, their wedding day turned out even better than imagined. After two venue changes, a date change, and even the start of a wildfire, Vlad and Natalie managed to re-plan their wedding in a matter of a month. This outdoor venue actually served as a three day stay for the bride and groom, giving the bridal party and the family plenty of time to enjoy the luxuries provided by this Airbnb. With a stunning infinity pool and a beautiful view overlooking the smoky hills of the Sierras, the estate offered so much amazing scenery for the ceremony, reception, and creative shoot. If there was one word to describe this wedding, it would be emotional. Everything from the gift exchanges, to the walk down the aisle, to the vows brought tears to the eyes of everyone around. It was especially exciting capturing the reaction of the groom’s gift to the bride on the morning of the wedding. Natalie, being a huge cat lover, always told Vlad that she wanted to get a cat after they were married. Little did she know she would getting one that...

If there were two words to describe this Indian Wedding, it would be emotional and breathtaking. Everything from the location, to the speeches, to the relationships brought a wave of emotions that perfectly captured the atmosphere of this destination Indian wedding in Colorado. Shot at the stunning Arrowhead Golf Course, this wedding venue served as the perfect location for two childhood friends to celebrate their union. The song “Butterfly Kisses at Night”, sung by the father of the bride, served as the inspiration for the film and really set the tone for the atmosphere of the wedding. With the help of the groom on the guitar, the father began singing the song to the bride before speaking the rest after claiming he couldn’t sing. The poetic feel of the song worked as an amazing storytelling aspect for the emotional parts of the wedding video. Aneesh and Maitri first met when they were four years old. Living across the street from each other, their families both spent lots of time together. Even distance couldn’t separate these two lovebirds as Maitri’s family moved to Chicago and Aneesh’s family moved to Oklahoma. After years of friendship, they fell in love and decided on forever together. The couple really wanted a Destination Wedding near the mountains. Traveling out of state, we were curious as to why the bride and groom would choose Denver Colorado for their destination wedding. It wasn’t until we drove to the venue that we understood. Nestled in the foothills of Colorado’s majestic Rocky Mountains, Arrowhead Golf Course made for the perfect background to host their wedding ceremony and reception. It was truly an incredible experience to film this Denver Indian Wedding in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado and we hope you enjoy this destination film celebrating the love of Aneesh and Maitri. After passionately crafting films like this, we hope this Indian wedding film immersed you into the cultural and beautiful wedding story of Aneesh & Maitri’s Destination Indian Wedding in Denver, CO. I’m confident we can capture an amazing memory of your big day for you and your...

This Indian wedding was initially planned as a “low key, really relaxed and chill vibe” wedding. However, it grew to a grand, epic and beautiful Indian wedding that even had a giraffe in it. Amish and Megna’s extravagant wedding was at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu , CA - a spectacular 1000 acre wedding venue overlooking the San Monica mountains. We hope you enjoy this cinematic Indian wedding film of Amish and Megna. This wedding was absolutely amazing for us as wedding cinematographers to film. The rolling hills, exotic animals and vineyards at this location made this wedding venue very easy to capture in this film. More importantly, the couple, Amish and Megna, were a bliss to capture on their special day. Their first look expressed it all when the groom proclaimed “oh lord, what’s happening” as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time that day. We arrived early morning to Saddlerock Ranch to capture shots of the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids and the bridal details. It was also at this time that we had the opportunity to film some shots of this unique venue- this was the first time we ran into Stanley the Giraffe. Surprised with how close we could get to him, we even had the chance to pet him. Moving on, we continued to film the groom preparation leading up to the super emotional first look. The wedding then took a cultural shift as the baraat (groom's wedding procession) started down the road. Accompanied by a dhol drummer, the groom, along with his family and friends, made their way to the bride’s family who eagerly waited for him. After a few short prayers, blessings, and cultural ceremonies, all the guests joined together under a huge ancient oak tree for the Indian Wedding Ceremony. Hindu wedding ceremonies are intricate with many cultural rituals. This presents us with many amazing opportunities to capture stunning and emotional footage. We as wedding cinematographers want our films to capture stories from the wedding day. All the ceremonial rituals, prayers, and wedding vows served as a strong story telling aspect in this wedding...

The journey each couple takes leading up to their wedding day is a beautifully unique story. We as wedding videographers love to tell such stories through engagement videos (or pre-wedding videos). Engagement videos are the perfect way to showcase who you are as a couple to all your family and friends. Catered to you, pre-wedding videos are filmed to capture your personality with you and your fiancé in a beautiful, cinematic experience. Averaging 2-4 hours of filming, pre-wedding videos, also called engagement videos, are shot in 1-3 locations within short distance from each other. Handpicking the best shots, we create a beautiful 1-2 minute film for you to share with everyone. Effortless and free-flowing, this engagement film is a luxury experience to add to your wedding journey. Pre-wedding videos are focused on telling your story through scenery, mood, and music. We can be creative with your pre-wedding film to make a save the date video, a concept film or even a Love Story. Limitless in ideas, pre-wedding videos can be used in any way you like them. We have had couples use this incredible feature in unique ways. Whether it be to officially pop the question to that special someone or to simply share the news in a beautiful cinematic video, we as cinematographers are always excited to make your vision come to life....

Wholeness and Wholesomeness - two words used to describe the relationship shared between Josh and Jen.

From the moment we arrived, we sensed that we are in one of the world's most enchanting settings - Léal Vineyards at Willow Heights Mansion. Nestled in the western hills of Santa Clara County California, the wedding of Nick and Viktoria was beautiful and majestic. This was a Willow Heights Mansion Wedding and we were honored to be there capturing a story of a couple that met on a blind date and getting married on their anniversary of that date.Through out the wedding day, we had many pleasant interactions with the beautiful couple and their wedding guests. That allowed us to be part of the wedding and capture the Willow Heights Mansion atmosphere, the Leal Vineyards, the rolling hills, and of course the wedding itself in all of it's glory. As a wedding cinematographer, I loved filming/watching the bride enter the ceremony with the veil flowing in the wind and the groom smiling - this gave me some amazing shots. Their First Dance started slow, but quickly picked up pace to include the rest of the wedding party. Enjoy the wedding film of Nick and Viktoria....

We loved being part of a wedding that takes place in one of the worlds more romantic places - Sonoma County, more specifically, Vine Hill House. The wedding was beautiful and we loved telling Tom and Shelbi's wedding story. We take Sonoma County Wedding Videography to another level.We love filming. Period. Additionally, we like to bring tools to each wedding that are not necessarily part of the wedding cinematography package. We want to tell an amazing wedding story, and many times, it requires thinking outside the box - we have to be wedding film makers. Drone shots allow us to capture footage that is breath taking from the sky. Jib/Crane shots allow us to show the venue and other aspect of the wedding decoration in a way that is more cinematic and beautiful. Besides all the typical tools like tripods and glide-cam, we are able to create shots on another level that many other wedding videography companies will try to compete with. We love setting the bar high and I believe that this wedding video sets the bar pretty high. Capturing the wedding is not the end of the process. We love telling the story with out edits. It is as important to be a good wedding videographer as well as a really good editor. It doesn't matter what software you edit in (we use Final Cut Pro X - FCPX), but it matters how we put the story together. I believe that our editing is as strong and in tandem with our filming. That allows our end product, a cinematic wedding film, to be beautiful, emotional and heartfelt. A true priceless memory for the bride and groom. Enjoy this wedding short film....

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...

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.
