Why quality AUDIO is as important as VIDEO

Without great audio, video- no matter how compelling- falls flat.  I don't know how many beautiful films I've viewed over the years where the audio was either poorly recorded or edited and ruined an otherwise fabulous piece.

Each year we continue to improve the quality of our captured audio at live weddings and events.  I've waited almost 10 years to find a microphone small and unobtrusive enough for a bride to wear during the ceremony. We usually record the bride's vows from the groom's mic, but that can often be a challenge if the bride whispers her vows, or is standing further than 3 feet away from her groom during her vows.

Finally the tiny Instamic fits this need perfectly, and it comes in white! We have used the mic at several ceremonies with great success- here modeled by our beautiful bride Cynthia, who wore it at her Muir Woods National Monument wedding ceremony.

GoPro Camera on a Mast

We recently filmed Merlou and Ryan's Catholic wedding at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in midtown Sacramento.  I've filmed her over 30 weddings at the Cathedral and each time I try and get a unique angle I've never shot before.  This time, I brought our 20 foot-high mast and set it up discretely near one of the huge pillars with my tiny GoPro 3 Camera on top.  The second video was captured later using the same technique at the reception at the Grand Ballroom a few blocks away.  I think the results were spectacular.  Below are still frames from the HD video captured by the GoPro:

Beth + Josh's Martis Camp Highlights

Beth was so radiant on her wedding day this film was easier than most to film and edit.  ...and how can you ask for a more beautiful backdrop than the Sierra Nevada Mountains!  Many thanks to all the wedding professionals that made this day perfect for Beth and Josh:

Brittny + Nick's Serrano Country Club Wedding Highlights

One of my most gratifying experiences as a professional wedding cinematographer is the reaction of our wedding couples (and in this case Brittny's mom) after viewing our work:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"OK - I've had a hard time breaking myself away from watching the highlight video of Nick & Brittny's wedding to email you a big THANK YOU!!!  I was trying to see if I could actually watch it without shedding a tear, but just gave up.  I don't know what to say... It really is a work of art. I truly mean that."
