WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY STUDIO
"Here's the good, the bad, and the (non)ugly: the Cinestory team rocks! We engaged with them to take our engagement photos and our wedding day photos. They did not disappoint!
For the engagement session, we flew one of the photographers up to the San Francisco Bay Area where we live and he recommended a few great spots to take photos. We coordinated schedules with him directly and we booked his flight. Cinestory was very flexible with us and communicated dates well ahead of time, which allowed us to work out the flight details.
He brought a healthy amount of gear with him for the session and gave us advice on what kind of shots typically work best and don't work best. If you as a couple have ideas on where you want to go and what you'd like your photos to look like (poses, angle, etc... ) feel free to share that with them and they will accommodate...."

"I've been meaning to write this review for a few months so it's long overdue!
To echo the sentiments of others, Cinestory did such an amazing job capturing the emotions of our wedding day. They say the day goes by in the blink of an eye, and it really does. To look back on the photos, and especially the video, allowed us to see things that we missed or didn't notice in the rush of the festivities.
I know a lot of people are always on the fence on whether to get videography in addition to photography, but after seeing how the video turned out from Cinestory, I would highly recommend you get at least the highlights video too - you won't regret it!
Oh, and the team is super easy and laid back to work with- they're great!"

"They were a pleasure to work with. We used them for both of our weddings, Nigerian traditional (Southern CA) and our regular wedding (Northern CA). They were great with directing everyone and keeping us focused when stress ensued. The quality of their work was impeccable.
Our wedding party and guest are still talking about Cinestory and loved the pictures and videos. It was a great experience and we are recommending them to all our friends and family.
To be honest, we can't wait to have another event to use them at. They have different pricing packages and are well worth the money. They captured everything.
We are now able to relive our wedding day every time we look at our pictures or watch our video."

"Our wedding was in April of this year and we researched into many videographers prior to choosing Cinestory Films. We saw several videos of their work and all of them were very much movie like for a friendly budget. They were always available via phone or email for all of our questions.
On the day of the wedding, they came on time and filming started right away. They have filmed at the hotel we were staying prior so they already knew where all the good spots were. That was really helpful. My husband and I also loved that they included drones as part of their service, without charging additional for it unlike all the other videographers we looked into.
They really captured all the highlights of the wedding that we missed because my husband and I were so busy on the day of."

"Fantastic team for our wedding photo shoot. Very professional and helpful throughout the entire process, from meeting with us to understand our vision, to coordinating seamlessly day-of, and following up with us after the wedding to ensure the final product was just what we wanted.
We had both photo and video services- both were excellent, with top notch upgrades like drone footage and very high-end recording equipment to ensure that everything was captured wonderfully. Would highly recommend for any wedding."

"I can't give them enough stars!
We hired CineStory Films for our wedding photography and videography and could not have been happier!
They are so easy to work with. I felt like we had known them for years even though we had just met once before the wedding. Our pictures are gorgeous and our video teaser is phenomenal. Just this morning I caught my wife watching it again with tears in her eyes! Priceless!
If you want great quality images, and just as importantly, professionals who enjoy what they do - these are your guys."

"We loved working with our CineStory Films crew on our wedding day. We had the 8 hour combo package, with 2 photographers and 2 videographers.
My husband and I are not the type to pose for photos/videos, but the CineStory crew made us feel completely comfortable and got us amazing shots.
They captured our day beautifully and we were able to relive our perfect day when we received the highlights video."

"We used Cinestory Films for our Engagement photoshoot and Wedding photographers and videographers which turned out to be nothing short of perfect.
My husband and I connected with the team instantly. They made us feel very comfortable and at ease, especially on "the big day" which was much needed. The team was not obtrusive and overly in your face and made us feel like we can be ourselves while on camera. They are natural at capturing our most affectionate moments. The pictures and videos speak for themselves. Throughout the evening they moved like ninjas through the crowd and my husband and I did not even notice they were around us, capturing the most amazing photos and videos.
They did an amazing job editing the video, which family and friends absolutely love! The quick turn around time and unbelievable creativity still amazes us every time we watch the video.
We highly recommend Cinestory Films to be at your wedding and give you the life long memories you will never forget."
