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:

Missy and Matt's 'Save the Date' magnet

Did I mention we film some of the most creative wedding couples?  Missy and Matt met playing soccer at Sacramento State.  Matt later played professionally. Their wedding photographer Jessica Stout captured the perfect shot that Missy and Matt envisioned.  The typography was done at WeddingPaperDivas.com. We look forward to filming Matt and Missy's fabulous wedding at the Monte Verde Inn, near Auburn next June.

Save The Date

The cost of selling yourself short:

Whether you are hiring a DJ, a photographer, florist, event planner, or videographer for your wedding or event- a true professional will save you headaches and heartache in the end.  I don't know how many events I've attended where the client saved several hundred dollars by hiring a family friend or 'budget' company to DJ- for example- only to have his gear fail, or play the wrong song during the first dance, or offend the guests.

Hiring a creative professional videographer or photographer is also critical, since those precious moving and still images will hold the memory of your day for you and for your loved ones for generations to come.  A wedding couple recently hired me to film her wedding a few weeks before her event after the cinematographer she booked for substantially less stopped returning her emails and phone calls.  Unfortunately, the bride may lose her entire deposit from that unscrupulous company.    (Thanks to Brett Culp for this image link)

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."
