Based in San Luis Obispo, on the Central Coast of California, we believe wedding videography should focus on real and meaningful moments. We craft wedding films driven by emotion, story, love and art. 



At Steelhead, we believe wedding films should focus on real and meaningful moments; those driven by emotion, love and story. Our passion for filmmaking and our love for people keeps us excited for each new wedding. Our hope is that your wedding film be a collection of moments, both big and small, that captures your love and the importance of all the friends and family celebrating alongside you. I want you to laugh, I want you to cry, and I want you to be able to re-live exactly how you felt on your wedding day.


John // Creative Director + Founder

John was born and raised in the bay area, but moved to San Luis Obispo for school. Now Cal Poly alum, he can be found surfing, camping, and exploring up and down the central coast. His wife Shannon is alongside him for every adventure, and as a registered dietitian, helps control his insatiable sweet tooth. His love for film-making sparked in middle school in the form of razor scooter and skateboarding videos, but has since evolved into his greatest passion; wedding film-making. John is constantly inspired by nature and the great outdoors, which he works to incorporate into each film. Each day he falls deeper in love with his craft and couldn't be more stoked to create authentic wedding films for awesome couples!

SADIE // Title Illustrator

Sadie Rogers is a visual artist and creative entrepreneur based in San Luis Obispo, California. A “Jane-of-all-trades,” Sadie’s modalities include handlettering, watercolor, graphic design and mixed media, which she uses to cover surfaces for clients across California, to teach private classes, and to build her product line of prints, apparel and goods. Sadie’s work is driven by a passion for the natural world, radical self-acceptance, girl power, wabi-sabi...and a healthy dose of sarcasm and playfulness - all with an abstract, raw and unfinished flair. Inspirations include Shepard Fairey, Jackson Pollock, Banksy, Gemma O’Brien, Lisa Congdon, and any artist with a gripping bio, quirky personality and unconventional approach. Sadie’s magic comes to life with the help of her witty daughter Brooklin, her two fur children Roody and Buddy, hugs and coffee - lots of it.  Photo by Cameron //
