We focus on a selected amount of weddings each year, allowing us to pour our hearts and passion into each wedding. The result is a romantic and cinematic wedding film that will be an heirloom for generations to come.

Aperina Studios has always strived to be one of the best wedding cinematographers in the world. Our creative vision and “all-in” approach, combined with the latest technology, allows our wedding films to stand out and be a reflection of your wedding day!
To ensure that we achieve the best wedding cinematography, we have some key aspects that are important to us: “all-in” approach, planning/pre-production, cinematography/filming, lighting, audio, editing/storytelling, color correction/grading, mastering and delivering the final video to you in a format that you will be able to enjoy forever.
We have invested in cinema grade cameras and lenses that give your wedding film a more cinematic and Hollywood look. More specifically, we use Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras and Canon L series lenses. We also use professional grade audio equipment, steadicam/glidecam, sliders, monopods and tripods. We have lighting equipment as well to capture your event in the best possible light and improve the overall look of the film (this is especially useful during the wedding reception and speeches). Additionally, we have introduced Jib and Drone shots to allow our films to really stand out with the cinematic footage that we capture. But most importantly, our “all-in” approach allows us to use ALL our cinema tools at anytime without having to add them into your package. With this approach, your wedding video will be the best it possibly can be.
A lot of work goes into crafting an amazing film that looks and feels like a Hollywood movie. We have been doing wedding cinematography for over 13 years and we have the experience, passion and creativity to create the best quality wedding film possible for each bride and groom. We have learned to focus on quality and create wedding videos that tell a story. Known for our cinematic shots, creative angles, our ability to capture stories, and “running around like ninjas” – we have become an award-winning wedding cinematography team.
Our primary service areas* are Northern California (Sacramento, San Francisco, Bay Area, Napa, Sonoma, Lake Tahoe and so on). However, we have traveled all over California, United States and even internationally to capture weddings and documentaries. We have also been capturing cultural weddings such as Chinese, Indian (Sikh & Hindu), Pakistani (Muslim), Ethiopian, Jewish, Ukrainian & Russian.
