Married in Avila Beach, California

Camille + Owen


Steelhead Cinema produces by far the greatest wedding videos of all time. From the moment I submitted my first inquiry to the day I received my wedding video, working with John was an absolute pleasure. John answered all of my questions throughout my engagement so quickly and with such grace. He made sure I was kept in the loop 100% of the time and that no decisions were made without my approval. Meeting in person with John shortly after I submitted my inquiry solidified that he would be our videographer because of how humble, kind, and genuine he was. I noticed right away that John was not in this business for the money; he is in it because he desires to gift a couple a visual of their unique love story for them to treasure for a lifetime. He truly cares about each couple he works with, which meant the world to me. Knowing that I had somebody with such character capture the greatest day of my life made the world of a difference.
My husband and I decided to take John up on his offer to film an engagement video the month before our wedding day. The two minute film captured our love for each other so well, and we had the privilege of playing it during our cocktail hour at our wedding, which all of our guests raved about. Some of the footage from the engagement video was also used in our wedding highlight film, as a way to enhance our love story. Although I was hesitant at first to incorporate footage that wasn’t from our wedding day in the highlight video, I am SO happy I trusted John’s judgement because those extra shots made our video even more special. Every time we watch our wedding video, we are in awe that someone was able to capture our deep love for each other so well in a short six minute film. He captured our personalities and other features we emphasized early on we wanted to have in our video very well. Steelhead Cinema captured our story in a way no other videographer will ever be able to do. John’s process of interacting with his clients many times before the wedding day is the best way to ensure the film is tailored specifically to the couple. I don’t know of any other videographer who prioritizes their clients’ needs to the same degree that John does. Our wedding film is a million times better than we could’ve ever imagined, and I guarantee you will feel the exact same way after you have the privilege of watching the production Steelhead Cinema was able to create just for you. I wish I could give more than five stars!!
