One of our favorite weddings of the year at the Sunnyside Restaurant and Lodge in Lake Tahoe with Kristin & Shawn. Although we are based in Sacramento, we also film weddings in San Francisco, Tahoe, Napa, and beyond. We were grateful that the couple chose our ‘drone’ option, which allowed us to use our professional quadcopter pilot to capture several stunning shots of the Lake and of the bride and groom during the processional, recessional, as well as the photo session.

We were fortunate to get our talented quadcopter pilot's ship up in the air just in time to capture Jenni and Joe's fireworks display during their wedding reception at the Grand Island Mansion! I don't remember getting a more beautiful shot at the Grand Island Mansion in the 20 years we have filmed there. I've always wondered if the expense to have a few minutes of fireworks at a reception is worth it, but to get this spectacular footage, I would say YES! FAA rules prohibit night flying for drones 30 minutes after dark, fortunately, we were able to just get under that hourly limit:)
Our video cameras capture 30-60 still frames per second. In a normal wedding day, that's over 500,000 still images from the 4-6 high definition cameras over several hours of recorded video.
We captured this stunning still frame from our GoPro video camera during a beautiful Dove Release by my dear friend Anna Hernandez of White Bird Ceremonial Dove Releases. From the end of Christina & Marc's Wedding Ceremony at Serrano Country Club in El Dorado HIlls, CA.
In over 1000 wedding ceremonies I've filmed over the last 20 years, this one was probably the hottest- 108 degrees at the wedding site. No amount of hydration seemed to help, and I was worried about our gear heating up and failing in the direct sunlight. But we made it through, and ended up with some fabulous footage of the day! Filmed in Auburn, CA. Some thoughts from the Mother of the Bride:
I just watched the short video again for the 5th time, it is so beautiful I just can’t stop! I really appreciate your artistry, the way you incorporated the audio with such sensitivity. You captured so many beautiful angles and integrated them into a lovely composition. I want you to know that I really appreciate all that has gone into this amazing video, what a treasure! Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job and especially considering once again (dare we mention it!) 108 degree weather!
