To say that Stephen did an amazing job as the videographer for our wedding is an absolute understatement. The level of care he puts into every shot is Oscar worthy. He communicates efficiently, professionally, and with a wealth of knowledge supporting his decisions and perspective. He blends into the background as necessary - you won't even notice him while he's capturing every precious moment. But literally, at a moments notice, you can find him in an instant if you need to. He's a magician, it would seem. If you want someone who doesn't need much direction in creating a wonderful video - Stephen's the guy for the job. More...

5 Stars is simply not enough! My wife and I received Stephen's video as a wedding gift. It was, by far, the best gift we could have received. It even topped the honeymoon to Maui! The video was absolutely perfect. I do not have words for how much this means to us. There were so many small nuances on the wedding day that I didn't remember or didn't realize. The day was such a rush. Much of the footage includes close-ups and slow-motion moments that are impossible to see in real-time. However, Stephen was super COOL and practically invisible for the entire time he was there. He flexed around the two photographers we had and we still have no idea how he pulled off some of the shots. I can only describe it as 100% professional and absolute magic!Stephen- I hope you continue doing this for many years because you have a special gift and it is incredible. More...

We can't express enough positive compliments about Stephen. He is THE videographer to hire; he is remarkable. We recently received our wedding video; it took our breath away and brought tears to our eyes. We watched it several times and honestly feel he captured the entire day beautifully. It is gorgeous, high quality and tastefully edited making it truly a pleasure to watch. Stephen is kind, talented and wonderful to work with. If I could offer any advice for his future clients it would be this: Hire him immediately before his schedule books up (which WILL happen) AND get the highlight film included in your package. You will be so glad you did! Thank you, Stephen! :) Colby & Courtney Duran More...

Deciding to use Stephen as our videographer for our wedding was one of the best decisions ever! We were referred to him by our photographers (Studio 19) and are SOOOO HAPPY we were able to connect with him. We were so lucky to have Stephen and the guys at Studio 19 there to capture our day, and they did it perfectly: candid, non-intrusive, and with a happy demeanor! To top it all off- our wedding highlight film is just the best thing ever and we cannot stop watching it and re-living the day!! We've gotten so many compliments from people who have seen the video and will GLADLY refer Stephen to anyone who is getting married. We teetered on the idea on if we really needed a videographer for our wedding, and if you're in the same boat as we were...trust me- you'll want one..and use Stephen!!! Such a special thing to have and to look back on and we cannot thank Stephen enough for all of his incredible work!!! More...

We love the work Stephen did. He showed up on time (He drove all the way up from San Diego to Los Angeles for our wedding), he captured all the charm of our wedding, and he produced a great highlights video afterward. He was more than willing to spend extra time with me to nail the video exactly how we wanted it, and he was very patient with us (trust me, we are very particular and he was always happy to help). I highly recommend Stephen Albert's services to anyone who is looking for a professional to trust on their special day. More...

Every experience I've had with this team has been exceptional. True professionals with a wealth of knowledge for the technical aspects of production as well as inspired creative direction.

I've worked with this company a handful of times and have come away with a better understanding and confidence in my craft after each experience. Carlos directs with poise and patience, Stephen has a knack for simplifying the elaborate, and Vic is definitely the glue that holds it together.

I always look forward to each opportunity to work with Blue Barn! Thank you all for being so amazing!

We just got our wedding video from Stephen and it couldn't be more perfect. He is so talented and did an incredible job at really capturing the feel of the entire day. He was SO nice and easy to work with. We love how candid and honest his videos are. He included bits of every single aspect of the day. He gave us an 8 minute highlight film with music of our choosing as well as all the raw footage, which if you have searched  videographers yet you know is very hard to come by! We can't say enough wonderful things about Stephen Alberts wedding films. Thank you so so much!! More...

Stephen was an incredible videographer.  Don't waste your time looking at other websites or debating any more about this.  I interviewed and stalked so many different videographers and I am SO glad that I chose him and that he was available.  Stephen was laid back and literally the fly on the wall of my wedding day - I didn't know he was there but what was so amazing is the incredible video he created of our day.  It is not *too long* it is the perfect length to capture the feeling of our day and I cannot look at it without crying.  When I was debating whether or not to hire a videographer I was tempted to save the money and not have one - I am so glad that I did.  It is not a video I watch often but it is a video that is priceless to me and I am so happy I have it to look in on whenever I feel like reliving the perfect day.  THANK YOU!!!

My experience with Blue Barn Creative was nothing but positive! From start to finish, the entire process was incredibly smooth, very professional, friendly and thorough. We definitely threw Carlos and the production team a few curve balls in advance and on-site, but never heard "we can't do that." Blue Barn Creative gets my highest recommendation! More...

Wow really an amazing production company. I'm so happy with Blue Barns services, they were truly amazing. They helped me out with my product reveal video and it turned out wonderfully. The guys here at Blue Barn Creative bring new perspectives, are very smart and savvy with their trade. They showed true interest and care in my product reveal video. I know that product reveal videos can be kind of tricky at times, but they were extremely professional and efficient the entire time.

You will never regret having Stephen to capture your Big Day. My husband is a photography/videography geek, and he picked Stephen out of a dozen best-Yelped videographers in San Diego, having reviewed all of their highlight films and filming equipment. Stephen really invests a lot in making the raw footage itself beautiful in color, composition and cut, unlike some videographers who rely on touchup efforts afterwards. Stephen excels in both shooting and editing. We hired him for the shooting only as my husband could do the editing himself (albeit not as greatly as Stephen does!). Watching Stephen's raw footage, you can tell he always had the editing process at the back of his mind while shooting, which minimizes your work afterwards and helps you tell a smooth, beautiful and touching story. He is also such a lovely and calm personality to work with in the run up to and on the day of your wedding. My husband and I feel really blessed to have him for our wedding, and would like to relay the deepest gratitude from both our families. (PS: his drone operators were also great and definitely worth hiring if you would like some cool venue shots from above!) More...

Blue Barn Creative is such a wonderful production company to work with. This team filmed in our coworking space and they were quick, efficient, and professional. As a Center Manager for a shared office space, accommodating a team with high-end equipment in our open space can be concerning. Carlos made sure to keep my team informed so that we could prepare and accommodate our clients, if necessary.

I would recommend Blue Barn Creative as video production company that produces high quality projects and I would gladly welcome the team to our space in the future!

Great work guys!

There are so many fine qualities about the work Blue Barn Creative does-- --from the quality of what they capture on film to how they structure the final products to how available and prompt they as they process the videos. In the two multi-day shoots I've been involved with Blue Barn Creative's team, they made things smooth and easy.

In our first video experience, using three cameras, the team shot several days of me teaching with groups of kindergarten and first grade kids in a San Diego area school. In one of the finished videos, there's a moment where you hear my voice but we see a close up of this little girl's face. I'm describing a sad experience and, over several seconds, she develops this expression of sadness as she empathizes with what I'm saying. The child's engagement was so real and powerful and the team not only captured it, they recognized the power of including it in the final video. Just a brilliant choice!!

Hands down one of the best decisions for our wedding was hiring Stephen Alberts and his production company. At first we debated whether or not a wedding video was necessary, but here it is a year later and we think it was the best investment.  Watching our raw footage and the custom highlight film brings back so many memories, and Stephen captured & edited them perfectly.  The team was very easy to work with, accommodating a lot of special requests, and they were extremely discreet throughout the entire wedding.  The final highlight reel was awesome, but we had a couple suggestions for cleaning it up and Stephen gladly accommodated without complaint.  Not the cheapest wedding videographer (nor the most expensive), but definitely worth the investment because the professionalism of the team and quality of their product is second to none.

Blue Barn Creative is an amazing production company.  They provide top notch service with amazing, high quality results.   They recently facilitated my company "All Employee Meeting" with a live stream, in addition to producing a film of the event (which turned out great!).  It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience!  They are smart, creative and innovative, they really care about the projects they work on and they wonderful to work with.  In addition, I wasn't the easiest client to work with, I had a lot of last minute requests and they were very accommodating.  I highly recommend Blue Barn Creative!

My wedding day, planned in a mere 3 months, was stressful as hell but Stephen was really able to capture all the beautiful & happy moments.  He is truly an AMAZING videographer--and was not just entrusted to videotape my wedding but for both of my sisters' weddings as well!  He's super chill, accommodating to virtually any request, and the best part is... you won't be able to detect his presence on your big day so you can just act natural =)  Our family cannot thank him enough for capturing all our beautiful memories & for being such an integral part of our special day!  I highly recommend him!!!

We were referred to Blue Barn through a professional singer who had used them for a music video. Our project was a bit different--a music video commercial about a serious product (for in-home HIV tests), but with a fun, light-hearted take on it. Carlos, Vic, Roman and Mike were so great to work with. Not only did they bring to life our ideas, but they came up with great ideas of their own. The magic they worked on our video was sheer perfection. We could have been happier. By the way, our video launched today and is already going viral! More...

Going into wedding planning, I was on the fence about booking a videographer and had wanted to focus more of my budget on the photography, but boy am I glad I decided to do it. Stephen works very closely with my photographer and his services were offered as part of the package that I purchased for my wedding photos. As a result, we didn't have the opportunity to meet for a consultation prior to the event, but when he showed up on the day of the wedding Stephen exuded a friendly professionalism and warmth that made me feel immediately at ease. I expected to feel slightly uncomfortable with having a camera following me around the bridal suite while I was getting ready, but Stephen effortlessly navigated around the madness of the pre-ceremony hours, doing it so well that I hardly even noticed he was there. I think that is not only the mark of a good videographer, but a testament to just how easy and enjoyable he made the experience for all of us. Stephen's passion for what he does is evident in his work, but even more so in the dedication that he has to his clients. He is one of those rare professionals that truly invests in every story he creates. Stephen stayed later than expected the night of our wedding, and went above and beyond what he was contracted to do just to make sure that he captured every single special moment for us.I just received the link to our wedding highlight film last week, and have watched it every day since because I simply cannot get enough of it. I can honestly say I could not have envisioned a more beautiful or perfect representation of our wedding day. Watching it made me cry, laugh,  dance, and and completely relive all of the most amazing moments of our day all over again. The arrangement of the footage was compiled in a way that was not only clean and consistent, but magnificently artistic, and I have found myself wanting to take still frames of the footage to print as photos because of how beautiful the shots are from start to finish. Stephen is an brilliant storyteller, and an exceptionally talented creative who has truly set the gold standard for professionalism in the wedding industry. We are so grateful to have found him and to have had the opportunity to work with him and will definitely be referring him to all of our friends who are getting married this coming year. This video will be something we have for the rest of our lives as a documentation of our special day, and we could not be happier with the result. Five stars and a HUGE recommendation for Stephen!

I am in love with our wedding video. I wanted a video that was more upbeat with quick cuts and I feel like I completely got what I wanted. It was romantic, honest, sweet, and totally captured the day. I love the quality of his video and how clean the picture quality is. Stephen is great at matching moments of the day to different parts of the songs in the video, which was important to me. The day of he was totally lovely and professional and like many others have said, you forget he and his team are even there. It is tricky hiring a videographer, it took a lot of research and thought and it was something I  cared a lot about. But I say hire this guy, communicate your vision, and let him do his thing. You will love your video!Thanks again to Stephen and his team for the phenomenal work.Here is a link to our video: vimeo.com/181130573 More...

He is awesome. we had a big fat Persian wedding in Marina Village. We met before our wedding in his office and talked about details that we wanted to be captured such as our special ceremony ( sofreh aghd) he paid attention  and took notes. He knows what he's doing. I looked for a videographer for almost 2 months and I called and emailed close to 60 individuals I finally chose him (through studio 19 which his partner); the reason?  reasonable price and good quality. I will update this post as soon as I get the results back. More...

I just finished a video project with Blue Barn Creative and couldn't be happier with the end result.It couldn't have been easy for them, either.  Initially, we had very specific ideas about what we wanted, but weren't really sure how to go about achieving any of it. They were able to both help us crystallize our ideas as well as make not only technical but creative suggestions that ended up making for a much better and more polished finished product.It's refreshing working with such a great group of professionals where everyone takes care of business.  Each step of the way, every member of the crew did exactly what they said they were going to do, when they said they would do it.  And at a very high level. That goes for camera work, hair & makeup, direction, editing, and everything in between.   I've been part of several productions before and this was by far, the most organized and smooth running in addition to being a great collaborative, creative environment.There's no doubt that when we're in need of more video production services, we'll be back with Blue Barn.If you're interested in the final product, feel free to check it out here- vimeo.com/153988035 More...

Blue Barn Creative just finished my video, and I am shocked how incredible it is! I had very high expectations going in because I saw all their clips they posted on their website, and I compared their clips with others in San Diego, and I felt they produced the best quality with the clearest picture. Working with them was an absolute pleasure, I can't get over how patient they were, especially because I had a lot of ideas and they were very patient with me throughout the whole process. I absolutely will use them in the future! Also, I just want to say that they were an absolute bargain. Most places would have charged 2-3 times more for the quality and the tremendous amount of time they spent on the filming including editing, and graphics. I am extremely grateful for their whole team, they are true artists and professionals. More...

Blue Barn Creative filmed our corporate "town hall" event in San Diego and was an absolute pleasure to work with. They quickly understood the concept we were going for within minutes of our explaining. I have never seen anyone understand a concept so quickly. At the event, they were the epitome of professionalism. And the final deliverable of the video was well beyond expectations. I can categorically say that this was the finest video of a corporate event I have ever seen--the editing, footage and artistic judgment were impeccable. Thank you! More...

Stephen Alberts is an incredible videographer! We wanted high quality raw footage that we could later place into an edited wedding video (when we someday have more money) and Stephen shot gorgeous raw footage. He also edits amazing videos if you have a bigger videography budget than we do...and want the full superstar experience. After seeing samples of his work, my husband and I knew that we could trust Stephen to just "do his thing" so we gave him our schedule of events and asked him to video the components that made the most sense to him and the video looks gorgeous. Because his camera looks a little unconventional, many of our guests thought he was one of the photographers so we also have some hilarious clips. And, our photographer loved working with Stephen. Stephen knows how to get the footage he needs to make your day memorable with you and your photographer barely noticing him throughout the day. We were so grateful for both Stephen's calm confidence in the work he produces and the footage we received. My husband and I (and all of our guests who have seen the footage) absolutely love his work and highly recommend him! He is soooo worth it and he was by far and away one of our favorite vendors at our wedding. More...

I hired Stephen for our August 2014 wedding many months before our big day. I had found his work online and found it far superior to any other wedding videographer in San Diego whose work I had viewed and knew I had to secure him immediately for our date.  Many of the "top companies" have an aesthetic that I was not looking for - I didn't want a "cheesy wedding video"! I wanted an artistic, candid movie set to music of our choosing. After talking and meeting with Stephen, I knew it would be a good fit. He worked with me to customize a package to fit our needs and budget, which I appreciated. He was also extremely timely in his responses to emails. On the day of the wedding, he showed up right on time and got right to work. Him and his 2nd shooter worked tirelessly (but never got in the way of anything!) to capture all of the pivotal moments as well as some unexpected candid footage as well. They were polite, professional, and discreet.It took a few months to get the final product (which we knew about going into it via the contract and is pretty standard, so nothing out of the ordinary), so the anticipation was building -- I was so excited to see what he put together! The end result was an awesome portrayal of our day and we will treasure the footage of the ceremony and toasts, as well as the edited to music short film, forever. Ironically, my husband was NOT interested in having a videographer but it was a top priority for myself so I ended up convincing him. After seeing the end product, even he admits he was wrong and that a videographer is a MUST HAVE!!! Photography is wonderful but doesn't always tell the whole story -- invest in both! They are the only thing that you have to cherish and remember after the big day (along with the memories and your new spouse!). Stephen was also very flexible in not only sending me the final footage via the internet and a thumb drive, but also creating Blu Ray discs for us and our parents to watch on different devices. Thank you Stephen! More...

@BlueBarn_Video is definitely the place for corporate and political/PR video needs. I've worked with numerous videographers over the years, and most are decent persons, but many lack the technology, equipment or personnel to be great.I called Blue Barn at the last minute for a press conference to replace a videographer who cancelled. They arrived with everything necessary to record our event -- multiple microphones, two camera angles, lighting assistance, and help with setting up our podium and positioning media for the best shot. They quickly turned around the footage enabling us to use it for internal and external communications, social media, and television. I'm very happy with my experience, and plan to call them the next time I need video services in the San Diego area. More...

Hiring STEPHEN ALBERTS was simply one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day!!!  Stephen captured our wedding on June 21, 2014 in Coronado, CA.  If his 4 time Emmy Award winning status, does not speak volumes already, then let me tell you about our positive experience working with him.We found Stephen online and were impressed by his diverse experience in the industry, quality of his work, credentials, the user friendly website -- easy to navigate and find packages, pricing, etc.Communication with Stephen was a breeze!  From setting up our initial meeting, establishing a contract, asking for assistance with our wedding day timeline and receiving the end product of the footage of our wedding day.  We appreciated Stephen's prompt responses to our inquiries.  Everything was executed via e-mail between our inital & pre-wedding meetings.  How sweet and simple!We were amazed with how he fully captured every moment our of wedding day, without even being seen!!!  Watching the footage, felt like we were reliving the excitement and happiness all over again.  I still can't stop watching the video :-)As a bride and groom, it is impossible to be every where at every moment with everyone, on your wedding day.  So we were delighted to see so many candid moments (happy,emotional, funny) and things we didn't even know happened, which Stephen caught throughout the day and evening.  Thank you so much for giving us a piece of our wedding that will last forever!

Blue Barn really knows their craft. I've personally had the pleasure of working with director Carlos Foster on a number of projects, and I can happily say he has the creative spark and experience to get your work done expertly, artistically, and on time. His patience and easy-going attitude make it a pleasure to collaborate with him, but you can be sure his directorial vision is always on target. He's really got the eye for this stuff.My interactions with Stephen Alberts there, however brief, were also a pleasure. I'm impressed with Blue Barn's work every time, and I'm really hoping for another chance to work with them again. More...

If I could give them six stars i would.  I couldn't be more pleased with Blue Barn Creative. The quality of videos they produce is extraordinary, and their customer service is impeccable. We have worked with Vic and Carlos specifically, and their flexibility and professionalism combined with the incredible video footage and editing they administer, keeps us wanting to use them time and time again.They captured and told the perfect story for our company's annual event. I'm extremely picky when it comes to anything that has to do with our image and brand, so my positive review really should mean a lot. Also the cost was very reasonable for the overall final video.I'm proud to recommend their video services to any company that is looking to impress. More...

I reached out to the guys at Blue Barn about a project far from my beaten path. I'm a software developer and I've never done any prior video work. Since I was completely new to the process, they were fantastic at walking me through everything.We shot some instructional cooking videos with the team in a rented kitchen space. The cinematography was great, their opinions always well-received, and their flexibility impressive.While the day of shooting did not start as planned due to our food stylist unexpectedly canceling, they managed to help us work through it regardless. They were utterly professional and clearly capable of handling whatever we threw at them.I honestly can't wait to work with them again. More...

Stephen Alberts can be described in one word AMAZING. He captured my wedding on October 26th, 2013. I initially hired Stephen because my father-in-law couldn't make it to our wedding to San Diego. I'm so glad Stephen was part of our big day. It's worth every penny, nickle, and dime. His work is beautiful and he does an amazing job with the edits. I've shared the video with my entire family and friends and we all agree that he's incredibly talented. Here's my video: vimeo.com/m/88150522If you need a videographer, don't look anywhere else, don't second guess, don't go with anyone else. Stephen is it! I would recommend him to EVERYONE. YOU'RE THE BEST STEPHEN AND I HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO CAPTURE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS FOR FUTURE BRIDES AND GROOMS. More...

We chose Stephen because we felt like we were getting a total steal for what he offered for our needs. He stuck with with us for nearly 14 hours and didn't miss any important shots. He is skilled and a true professional and his work is backed up by his golden Emmy's. You'll see them when you step into his office. He was very accessible and was able to work around the logistics that we gave him.. Amazing. DO NOT THINK TWICE ABOUT GOING WITH SOMEONE ELSE. vimeo.com/77094334 More...

We fell in love with Stephen's work. He is talented and very creative. He doesn't follow a pattern like others do but he generates the event's own uniqueness to be the driving force of his work. He is very accommodating and personable. That's why he had received awards for his work. He is just simply amazing. More...

We were really late to hire Stephen, originally, we didn't even want a videographer at our wedding but since we had some family that couldnt come, we changed our mind and tried to find one. To be honest, we went with the best rated videographers and they were all booked, so we found Stephen on Yelp, not a whole lot of reviews but they were all good. We met Stephen at a Starbucks and he seemed motivated, smiling and the few films we saw were good. We also found out he already won a couple of Emmys!On our wedding day, they showed up on time and I was very surprised with the amount of material they had, I was seriously in a 'wow' state lol. They were in control so I didn't take care of them and they were always here but discreet. We had to wait a couple more weeks than expected but Stephen was always fast to reply and gave me the heads up, so even though we were impatient - it was well worth it. I'm usually not emotional but the editing and the highlight movie was just amazing ... here is a link to our highlight video, so you can judge his work:vimeo.com/75924563I'll recommend Stephen to any one that has any video needs, I could definitely see Stephen succeed doing any ad spot or video clip. He understands how a movie has to be edited ...Overall we're super happy - my wife is still a mess, watched it 50 times and just cries every single time lol. Thanks Stephen ;) More...

Stephen did an awesome job on our wedding video! He took excellent shots of every critical moments and weaved them into a touching story. We played the video to many friends and they are all astonished by the level of details and they all acclaim that the video is just like a movie trailer. We are so impressed with his work which definitely worth beyond the price. More...

What can I say about Stephen that hasn't already been said? He is truly a professional and the high caliber of his work proves how much passion and creativity he puts into every project. He possesses a unique talent of capturing all the small and fleeting moments and weaving them seamlessly into an extraordinary and indelible experience.I admit that when my husband and I first started planning, we weren't even thinking of a videographer. Both of us tend to get really shy and awkward in front of a camera. But everyone we spoke with said we would regret it in the end if we didn't have our wedding filmed. So, with less than 2 months before the big day, we started looking and were so fortunate to find Stephen. Right from the get go, we were impressed with the films on his website. And c'mon, he's got an Emmy! I was able to schedule a meeting right away and in the first 5 minutes of meeting, I already felt comfortable and at ease with him. On our wedding day, Stephen brought along Carlos, a second shooter and we're so glad he did. Because our photographer was doing most of the staging for pictures, Stephen and Carlos pretty much melted into the background and for almost the entire ceremony and reception, I forgot they were there! We just got our highlight film and can't stop watching it! It totally went far beyond any expectation we had and captured all the emotion and excitement of the day. Stephen did such an incredible job of having the music and footage work together to make every moment that much more special. Everyone who has watched our film has turned into the biggest crybaby! Our wedding day was over before we knew it but now, thanks to Stephen, we have something to help us re-live and remember all the wonderful moments from that day. You will definitely not regret choosing Stephen to film one of the most important events in your life. More...

If you are looking for a top notch, high quality videographer, look no further because Stephen Alberts is your guy!We chose Stephen Alberts Wedding Films to shoot the highlight video for our February 23, 2013 wedding in Carlsbad, CA. After extensively researching videographers we met with Stephen Alberts. Immediately we were impressed with his portfolio of video/editing work (which is Emmy award winning, by the way!) and the story and passion behind his shooting wedding videos. He answered all our questions regarding equipment, day of set-up and how he would be sure to get the best angles at the wedding. After selecting Stephen to shoot our wedding, he was in communication with us every step of the way (which is important when you're working to coordinate so many things for a DIY 130 person wedding). Closer to the date Stephen even arranged for a second videographer, Carlos, to film at the wedding which ended up being such a great decision because it allowed to film both the guys and the girls getting ready separately. Major plus. When it came to the day of, both Stephen and Carlos were awesome - so professional and most of all, they filmed totally incognito which helped to capture all the little moments that might not have happened had we been aware a camera was there. Now that we've just seen our highlight film we just had to write a positive review. We received so many compliments about the video that people were brought to tears! wow. Many even commented on how he so perfectly set action scenes to the lyrics of the songs that accompanied the video - now that's an eye for detail!So, if there are couples out there looking to immortalize their wedding moments, choose Stephen Alberts to film your wedding. We're so glad we did! Our wedding video is on Vimeo: vimeo.com/m/64768834 More...

After having some troublesome experiences with other videographers, I nearly gave up. I found Stephen through Yelp and I almost overlooked him since he didn't have as many reviews on his page as other videographers - so I'm making sure to contribute! Stephen is AMAZING! He is so accomodating, professional and the quality of his work is unrivaled! You definitely won't get the same video as another client, and he is reasonably priced. He did an amazing job on our engagement videos and I'm looking forward to working with him on our wedding videos! More...

We just got our video from Stephen from our Dec wedding, and we could not be more pleased.  The quality of the video, and his style of shooting was just beautiful.  Even the raw footage was amazing!  I didn't even see Stephen until the end of the night, he was so good at fitting in and stealing candid moments you didn't even notice. I didn't even feel like I attended my own wedding until seeing the video :-)  He was great, and very reasonable packages too! More...

Where do I begin. I knew as soon as I got engaged - the most important part was the photographer and videographer. Stephen is amazing he is so nice to work with and very flexible with meeting times and answering my questions.The highlight video we got was better than I could of imagined all my friends say it feels like to them they are watching a movie, mother in law cries every time she watches it. We haven't even received the DVD and have watched the video online at least 10 times.You would think it would be awkward having a video camera and photographers running about, but they were so sneaky I honestly forgot they were there and not sure how they got such amazing shots!You will get your money's worth and some. Stephen is a must have! More...

Just saw the video Stephen made of our son's wedding.  It was the best wedding video I have ever seen and I'm not just saying that because it was of two people I adore.  Instead of some literal step by step replaying of the wedding, he edited in all the precious moments and all the candid things your eyes might have missed.  It captured all the love and happiness of everyone present in a short period of time. Normally I run when people bring out the wedding videos but this was touching and sweet and not too long.  I will love watching it again and again.  If I could give more stars I would!!! More...

A little background, my wife and I where reluctant to get a videographer.  We get really uncomfortable when cameras are around and we weren't sure if we would ever watch a wedding video...One week before our wedding we decided we it would be a good idea to capture our ceremony and toasts on film.  Our fabulous coordinator (Krystel at Couture Events) was able to find us Stephen at the last minute and within our budget.  We got so lucky!!  He did such an amazing job.  I don't know how he was able to capture all the things he did, it was like he was never there. Amazing, wonderful, fantastic, beautiful, emotional are just a few of the words I use to describe our wedding highlight video Stephen created for us. He is a definite must have for a wedding.

I've had the pleasure of working with Stephen not once, but twice. The first time was for a video for the salon I work at. We wanted a video to showcase what inspires us and how we translate said inspiration onto hair. Stephen was incredibly professional and  easy to work with. The finished product was in one word- AMAZING.The second time I needed some photos done to be used on a website. Again, Stephen came to my rescue and delivered some amazing pictures all while being incredibly friendly and easy-going.  And, if you happen to be looking for a videographer for your wedding, look no further. He definitely has an eye to catch moments you didn't even know were happening. More...

Q&A

What I love most about this job is creating content for businesses that really need help clarifying their message or presenting the products (or services). I personally love cinematography and editing but it's the human relationships we develop that are very rewarding, and the way we can impact other businesses with the power of filmmaking is truly fulfilling!

The joy of cinematography is what first inspired me. Ever since working with professional cameras, I have been fascinated by the art of it. It's a constant exploration and it's extremely fulfilling. In recent years we'be begun consulting our clients on the most effective ways to deploy their video marketing content in addition to creating it.

Clients should choose my team because we have a very high attention to detail, we have years of experience and we never compromise the quality of our work!
