Weddings filmed for close relatives are often produced as a labor of love 💕 as this wedding sneak peak trailer was...but it's good to know that if they don't like it you can always give them their money back:) Congratulations to my wonderful nephew David Jensen and his beautiful new bride Ariana Martin who were married recently at the Sacramento LDS Temple in Folsom, CA.

We love traveling out of Sacramento several times a year to film destination weddings. Courtney & Mitchell’s wedding at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort was no exception. Not only was the ocean venue eye candy for our wedding film, but we were honored to capture the wedding of the daughter of a fellow filmmaker- Dennis Kulik. Courtney & Mitchell were so gracious in giving us the time to get some spectacular shots of them walking n the beach.
Some of my favorite shots came as Courtney danced with her guests near the end of the reception. We were ‘off the clock’ for those high energy shots, but often some the best wedding footage we capture happens when we go beyond our contracted time for our couples. Truly, filming wedding day love and laughter has always been so much more than just another ‘gig’ for us.
Halley & Chris were married at one of our favorite venues- the overlook at the Forest House Lodge in Foresthill, California. Filming in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is a great change of pace from the weddings we film in Sacramento. The love they have for each other is easy to see in their heartfelt ceremony vows.
We began capturing 360 Panoramas for weddings and events back in 2006, inspired by Hans Nyberg's incredible panoramas of the Danish Royal Wedding. Now that Facebook, VIMEO, and YouTube all support 360 VR Panoramas for both still and video, we renewed our passion and excitement for this unique way to capture any environment in a very unique and compelling way. Below is our first wedding panoramic movie, created by our tiny, venerable Xiaomi Mijia Mi Sphere 360 camera. Congrats to our wonderful couple Katie & Randy, who were married at the Blue Sky Terrace in Lake Tahoe, CA!
I've always loved to play the game of Scrabble, though my Grandmother, Sisters, and Father routinely beat me using words I've never heard and often can't pronounce. This week I had an flash of inspiration: describe to our readers the many services we offer at Jensen Films through a scrabble board. We started in 1991 with one humble SVHS video camera. Since those humbe beginnings, we have grown to offering a wide variety of media services, such as Live Streaming, 360 degree Virtual Reality Panoramas, 8mm Film, Drones...and the list goes on! While we began by offering only wedding and event cinematography, much of our work is now also corporate, for companies such as Dignity Health, UPS, and Intel.
We have been honored to receive several national and international awards for our wedding films over the last 25 years. But the greatest compliment of our work comes from our wonderful clients. This Wedding Wire review from the mother of a recent bride married at the Catta Verdera Country Club:
In every lasting relationship there are sacrifices to be made. As part of his wedding vows, Brian admitted to Christa that she was even more important than his beloved Steelers:) They were wed at St. Joseph Morello Cathoic Church, and the wedding reception was held at the Morgan Creek Golf Club. This short film was edited in super wide 1:235 cinematic aspect ratio,
I love the pageantry and fabulous colors at the Indian Weddings we occasionally film. One of my favorite weddings of 2014 year featured Devin arriving to meet his bride on a horse, surrounded by enthusiastic family and friends.
We have been blessed to have filmed many weddings during the Holiday Season. Merlou and Ryan planned their wedding between Christmas and New Year's- December 28. The Holidays remind us of God's magnificent gifts to each of us, and draw us closer to dear family and friends. Those feelings were certainly in abundance at the wedding of Merlou and Ryan- who were married in Sacramento at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. The Reception was held at the Grand Ballroom.
When my dear friend and talented DJ Michael Anderson of Creative Memories Entertainment let me know that he would be creating a 3 minute snow shower during Celina & Joses's first dance at Arden Hills Resort & Spa, I knew it would be special. Watching Jose sing the words as he held his new bride, and watching Celina's surprise as the snow first began to gently fall made for a truly magical moment in their day. The long-form style of this edit underscores the importance of documentary wedding edits as an important companion to any highlights reel.
One of my favorite moments of Alysssa and Eric's wedding day was one of the flower girls falling down as Alyssa was walking down the aisle. This was truly a a magical day! Many thanks to photographer Steve Anthony, DJ Larry Burow from Extreme Entertainment, and the helpful staff at the Forest House Lodge.

I particularly loved Stephanie and Ben's heartfelt wedding vows, and combined them at the beginning of this beautiful clip with the First Look. The ceremony and reception were held at a hidden gem of a wedding venue - The Center at 2300 in Sacramento, CA
This was our first wedding trailer edited in the super-wide Cinemascope 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Robyn & Guido were a great match, and we had a wonderful time capturing the events of the day!
I finally earned all my volunteer parent hours at JA Academy by producing this short promotional video for this incredible K-12 charter school, located in Roseville, CA:
