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.
