We are a husband wife team, so we definitely know and understand the importance of capturing all of the details that you have put into your special day.
Especially having gone through the experience ourselves.

The number one thing that we hear from a bride is: "I don't remember a thing. It all happened so fast, that it feels like it didn't happen."
I quickly assure them that the beauty of us being there is that we have captured their event in a way that will last a lifetime.
We will transform your wedding into a cinematic experience that brings your photos to life, through both sound and movement.
There is no better way to hear each others vows, see the others smile and observe your guests laughter and sighs.
We tie together all of your dreams and hard work into one beautifully produced package.

We try to work with everyone on all budgets to ensure that they can have a wedding film that they will treasure for a lifetime.

Please give us a call at our office: San Francisco 510-558-1080 or L.A. 310-770-8992

We would love to share in your special day.

In addition, we have been recently featured on CNN and ABC7.

Jennifer and Chris could not have done a better job at making our wedding music video. They truly have a passion for what they do and the artistic ability to put together this video implementing all the ideas we had for it. They were so easy to work with and made us feel at ease. Highly recommended!!! :) They won't disappoint.

Major Diamond Productions ( http://www.majordiamondproductions.com/ ) is made up of Jennifer Mae and her husband Chris. We found them after tons of research of over 30 videographers. We evaluated them based on style (creative, colorful, cinematic), price (sub $5,000) and personality fit (fun, caring, professional and nice). My wife was looking for folks who really, really, listened to what we were looking for as well as people who knew what to capture in terms of wedding videography. Major Diamond Productions performed beyond our expectations in every dimension. The first time we met with Chris and Jennifer Mae, they made my fiancee cry … and that’s a good thing! They seemed to really care about us even though we were complete strangers. They let us know, that no wedding goes perfectly but no matter what, we will always treasure our wedding day memories and they seemed to really want to give us that gift. All in all, their service is top notch. They showed up (on time) in professional looking all black outfits. They set up cameras and moved about in the ceremony and the reception in an inconspicuous way. It seemed they were conscious about not getting in anyone’s way. They surprised us with an amazing video guestbook set-up that impressed us and all of our guests. The same day edit left us speechless and in smiling tears … included video from our proposal and this was quite the touching detail that really caused many tears of joy during the reception. Our whole wedding and our same day edit highlight were both published on the internet within 2 days! This was huge for us as we have a bunch of family and friends from all over the world who weren’t able to come to our wedding. Did I mention that the same day edit was just awesome??? Major Diamond also worked very well with our photographer (Joseph Pasqua Photography (http://www.josephpascuaphoto.com ) and DJ (KYanni Productions: http://www.kyanniproductions.com/ ). To date, we haven’t received our final wedding DVD, but based on their work so far, I’m sure we’ll be extremely pleased (we’ve watched the same day edit over 50 times to date). Jennifer Mae and her husband Chris met on a super hero TV show and true to form, they were definitely super cinematographers for us. We give them the highest recommendation possible.

Chris and Jennifer Mae are amazing. During our wedding we were not even aware that they were there. They were professional and captured every single event that was happening. There calmness and joyfulness and love of what they do shines through in their final product.
We were so amazed at how wonderful our wedding video turned out. Not only did it capture the love that we felt, but it captured every aspect of what was happening that day. The music in the background of the video matched perfectly with what was happening as well. If the words to a song said the word tear, it was in the exact moment that one of us had a tear in our eyes.
We were so touched with the work that Chris and Jennifer Mae put into our video. It was clear to us that we not only made a good choice, but a perfect choice of videographers for our wedding.
We tell anyone and everyone how amazing they are and would recommend them for any type of event.
Their artistic eyes shine through in their work. Their love of what they do added to the love and fun on our very special day.
They also did special additions to our video which surprised and touched us in a way that brought even deeper meaning to our memories of a day we will never have to forget, because they captured it so perfectly in film.
