What we believe
At Steelhead, our work is deeply rooted in a love for people and their stories. It's the driving force behind each and every film we create. But that's not all we love. We also have a thing for stunning landscapes, raw emotion, and light, which we set out to capture and incorporate into each film.
SUBSTANCE > FLUFF
We believe your wedding day is just a small part of your story, and that your relationship has much more depth and meaning beyond one epic celebration. We believe in creating films that are stripped of the fluff and nonsense, and instead consist of substance and emotion. We value creating films that make you feel something versus just seeing what the day looked like.
MORE THAN JUST AN EVENT
We believe your wedding is an event that has been molded over the decades by friends and family and therefore is far too special of an event to follow a traditional cookie-cutter style of wedding videography. Instead, we believe it should be crafted with intention, standing alone as a piece of art, while representing who you are and what you stand for.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
In order to serve our couples with the care and attention they deserve, we will only take on 14 weddings for 2018. Our top priority is to make you feel loved and cared for while delivering films that are packed with story, emotion, and art. Our creative process extends beyond your wedding day to equip us with the content we need to create meaningful and story-driven wedding films.
So many options out there
A unique experience that yields an artistic and story-driven film.
A wedding film that fully encompasses what matters most to you as a couple. We don't believe in templates or outlines, just creative storytelling.
You get our full hearts and attention throughout the entire process. We take on a very limited number of weddings each year to ensure each film is given the love and creative energy it deserves.
More than just the wedding day
More than Just the wedding day
First and foremost, we want the entire process of creating your wedding film to be as fun as possible. We understand the amount of planning and details that go into your wedding weekend, and make sure to not add any additional stress!
At the core of our films, is a deep understanding of YOU, and of your entire story. From the people who have played an important role in your lives, the hardships you've overcome, the special bond you have with your father, or just how excited you are to dance the night away, we love to know it all! Going into your wedding with an understanding of your story allows us to shoot the weekend with intention and purpose instead of aimless event coverage. This happens over lunch, dinner, adventuring around your city, surfing, zip lining, coffee, you name it! Whatever it is you love to do, we want in. If you live far away, we can come to you!
After our time together, we sit down and begin brainstorming how we can incorporate the themes and important elements we’ve learned about your story. This could include anything from home videos, proposal footage, exploring your hometown, attending a family camping trip, or even tagging along for part of your honeymoon.
There is nothing too far-fetched or out of reach. If it's an important piece of your story, we will find a way to incorporate it into your film.
From the first email until your film is delivered, we are here for you. We are always available by phone, email, text, or google hangout to answer your questions and talk about ways to make your film as unique and epic as it should be.
We will be checking in along the way to make sure all the details are in line, and that you feel excited and cared for each step of the way.
Our hope is that when the wedding is over, we feel more like a friend to you rather than a vendor you hired for the day.
Weddings can be chaotic and we get that. Our top priority is making your day as enjoyable as possible. We are there to quietly and non-obtrusively celebrate alongside you. Our hope is that we add to your day, not take away from it.
We will handle all the planning and details leading up to your final film delivery, ensuring that all you need to do is have the best time of your life on your wedding day.
No need to worry about hours of coverage, we are there to cover your wedding day in it's entirety.
MICHAELA + NEAL
Michaela from Colorado, and Neal from Long Beach met their first week of college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. They had 5 years of friendship under their belts before they realized the love they had for one another. After spending the majority of their dating relationship in Santa Barbara, they decided it would be the perfect backdrop for their wedding. With friends and family from all over California and Colorado, they wanted their film to highlight the wonderful peoples celebrating alongside them as well as the beauty of this coastal greenhouse venue.
