Our style of wedding videography is deeply rooted in Hollywood film and influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. 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 is an award-winning wedding videography team from Sacramento, California capturing weddings in San Francisco, Bay Area, Napa Valley and all over California.

Our vision and approach, combined with the latest technology, allows our wedding films to stand out and tell your wedding story!
Besides conveying stories through our films, we have an very interesting approach to filming each wedding. We call it an “all-in” approach. Each couples wedding is filmed in the best possible way with the best possible cinema tools we have. You don’t pay for drone shots or add-on any other tools to improve your wedding videography. We believe every wedding should be captured in the best possible way to help drive the story. Each story is different, so we come prepared with all we have. Our “all-in” approach insures that we achieve the best wedding videography.
Your wedding happens once – and we are ready to capture it perfectly. A memory for a lifetime shouldn’t be a hard choice. We are 100% confident that we can create a wedding film that you will love and enjoy.
Many people ask us what tools we use. Even though wedding videography is not dependent on the equipment we use, there is a direct correlations with the end product quality.
Our primary cameras are Canon full frame DSLRs: Canon 5D MK IV and 3x Canon 5D MK III. We use Canon L series lenses (top quality lenses). Our audio gear allows us to capture audio clearly as we mic the groom and the officiant for the ceremony (we use tiny Tascam DR-10c audio recorders). In many cases, we use lighting equipment to improve the colors and overall look of the film (this is especially useful during the wedding reception and speeches) . Additionally, we have introduced Jib and a Drone into our collection of tools. Our wedding films stand out with this cinematic footage. However, we analyze each wedding situation before using each tool – we still want your wedding to be intimate and romantic.
Most importantly, our “all-in” approach allows us to use ALL our cinema tools at anytime without having to add them into your package or costing you more for us to use. With this approach, your wedding video will be the best it possibly can be.
* Key areas we target: Sacramento Area, Bay Area, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Sonoma, Lake Tahoe & San Diego (basically California). We’ve been blessed to travel all over United States and Caribbean Islands to capture stories of lovely couples.
