Describe any special editing services you offer:
Sean edits every wedding, and treats your big day the way it deserves! For video, our cinematic package includes everything from color grading with enhanced contrast and saturation, to slow motion, music of your choice, and more. For photography, all your photos will be edited, every single one - cropped, color corrected, contrast, saturation, black and white on some - and if there are any you plan to have printed, extra photoshopping to remove blemishes and make the photos perfect is available at no extra charge.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
We have all kinds of lights, ranging from LED on camera lights to professional studio and field lights that can be set up for especially dark events, and both on camera and off camera flashes for photography. Despite this, our cameras are the best in the world when it comes to low light, and for video especially we almost never need to use any lighting at all to get crisp clear footage, even in the darkest church or reception!
How many videographers do you work with?
We have 3 videographers and 2 photographers, and packages may change depending on what the couple needs. The executive producer (Sean) will always be the main person at any event.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
Yes, the cinematographers/photographers will meet with the bride to go over the schedule and any special requests the bride may have.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I always attend the weddings!
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No, we take only one wedding per weekend.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
In case I become unavailable, one of our other highly trained and experienced cinematographers/photographers will take the lead.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring one HD camera per cinematographer plus one HD camera as back up, fluid-head tripods for the cameras, wireless microphones, shotgun microphones, on camera lights, lighting kit (usually stays in the car unless necessary), stabilizer for smooth moving shots, slider for cinematic dolly style shots, and a whole bunch of minor accessories like polarizers, lens adapters, infinite batteries and memory cards - and several bags of every top end lens you could imagine!
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We have backup equipment for everything we bring ready to go. We almost always have a trained assistant as well, who can take over should someone become ill (never happened before, let's hope it never does).
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Yes, any couple may request their raw footage.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
We always request song names from the bride before editing. If the bride wishes to be involved in the editing process, she can have a great deal of input - tell us what style she likes (traditional, fast paced, artistic, etc) and even preview a rough cut to let us know if he/she wants something removed, changed, or added.

I am so glad that I have Sean as my videographer. He is such a great person to work with. We hired him from the very first meeting. Thats all it took to convince us that Sean was the videographer for us. He knows exactly what we are looking for and quality that we are expecting. We also had asked Sean to make a love story video for us to show at our reception and it was just beautiful. Sean really listened to our ideas and was willing to do with what crazy idea and shots that we wanted to take. We even went to Baker Beach and if youre from the SF area you know what Im talking about. haha. Wedding day he was on time and ready to film. I cannot wait to see the final product.

My Hubby and I would like to extend our appreciation to Sean, Alex, and the rest of the crew at Sunset Productions. We met with Sean several months prior to our wedding date. He was very professional, pleasant, and informative in providing us with all the details regarding our preferences for photo/video and all the various package deals. Sean took the time to explain and present what Sunset Productions has to offer and even shared some of his ideas to help make our wedding unique. Most importantly, he worked within our budget and time preferences for the pre-ceremony, church ceremony, and reception.

Inclusive in our wedding package was the Engagement Session. My Hubby and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the entire day with Sean and Alex for our Engagement Photos. We were able to schedule a 1-day session taking unlimited pictures in 2 different areas and even include our dog as well. Sean and Alex definitely made our Engagement Session a fun experience and we felt such at ease around them. We were camera shy in the beginning, but we immediately felt comfortable as they offered suggestions when striking for a pose! Eventually, we began making requests without realizing the time. Towards the end of the Engagement Session, I think we all agreed that the best part was with our dog. Sean and Alex displayed plenty of patience as they were capturing remarkable shots of our dog. We had such a great experience with Sean and Alex during our Engagement Session!

About a week before our wedding, Sean was extremely understanding and considerate as I did not prepare a wedding timeline. Sean and the rest of the crew met with me at the hotel for a few pre-wedding photos. Then, they made their way to the church to set up all their equipment. Since we had the convenience of having the ceremony and reception areas next to each other, Sean and Alex remained in the church after the ceremony while the rest of the crew prepared for the reception area. My Hubby and I were delighted that we planned for 2 photographers/2 videographers. It made such a huge difference as the crew was able to spread out and take pictures/videos from different angles and view every moment through a distinct perspective.

Overall, the crew at Sunset Productions was incredibly attentive throughout the entire wedding. They made sure to capture every memorable moment while adjusting to our wedding program. We cannot thank them enough for their excellence, diligence, creativity, and skill in fulfilling their goal of providing us with the highest quality of proficiency and expertise. My Hubby and I will definitely recommend Sunset Productions to other couples for their wedding needs or other events. Two thumbs up for such impressive work! Again, we appreciate everything and will continue to keep in touch with Sunset Productions for future events! Thank you for being a part of our special day and contributing to such a memorable wedding celebration!

Our Utmost Gratitude,
Jay, Rose, and Pebbles (our dog)

Sunset Productions did a fantastic job with my wedding. My wife and I were referred to them by a friend who got married last year, and we couldn't be happier. We went with a 12 hour package because we wanted the whole experience captured on video, from the getting ready in the morning to the final dances. First they went ahead and sent a videographer to each location in the morning, so they got the bride and I getting ready at the same time (although I was ready long before her, lol). After that they got to the ceremony early and filmed all the decorations and people arriving, and they must have met with the church coordinator because they told me they had a live audio feed from the sound board. That's another thing, their audio was so crisp even during the table toasts at the reception, they passed around a wireless microphone so even with the loud atmosphere they could get all the words.

Anyway the church made them stick to certain locations, but they managed to get every shot beautifully, even the rings going on our fingers! Our reception was long with a lot of traditional dancing and a tea ceremony but they didn't miss anything. When it got dark they turned on lights on their cameras and still got nice HD quality dancing footage. The blu-rays we received worked great in our PS3 and the chapters are great for selecting which scene you want to go to. We also ordered some normal DVDs for our relatives and Sean made them and sent them out the same week. We really couldn't be happier with Sunset Productions, definitely will be recommending them to everyone!

We found Sunset Productions through WeddingWire and couldn't be happier. We were initially only looking for photography, and Sunset Productions was the third place we interviewed. When Sean showed up to our meeting he was so friendly and professional, he immediately made us feel at ease. His passion for his work and his portfolio sold us and we went ahead and reserved our date. A friend later convinced me we should add videography as well, and lucky us that Sunset Productions does both! Sean informed me that we would also receive a discount and a free engagement session as well! On the day of the wedding, the photographers were so professional and confident, and the videographers were unobtrusive (most guests said they didn't realize we had videographers!). Sean and his crew really made our day run smooth. The final results were amazing - the photos captured everything we hoped for so beautifully that we ordered two different albums, both magazine style. The video looked just like a movie, and we ordered extra DVDs to send to the relatives. Our favorite part was the highlight clip that Sean made us, which he uploaded to a private gallery so only our friends and family could see it. I just can't recommend Sean and his crew enough, they are all truly masters of their craft. Thank you Sean for everything, brides trust me you can't go wrong with Sunset Productions!
