This is one of the reasons why I love my job, to make the couple happy!
Samantha filmed our wedding last December in Napa. From the beginning, I have been a fan of Samantha's work and was totally confident that the output would be fantastic. After receiving our short film, my husband and I were absolutely blown away by how beautiful, real, and complete the result is! In 10 minutes, Samantha strung together the magic of our day in the most perfect way possible. She managed to capture every moment without being obtrusive. We were especially thankful that we didn't have to do any "acting" or pretending when it came to shooting. Samantha stayed true to what transpired on the day of our wedding and translated this into a video that brings back authentic emotions. Not to mention, it helps us relieve precious once-in-a-lifetime memories! We enjoyed seeing scenes we didn't even know/don't remember happening and it feels like we're getting new gifts just by watching the video. I cannot say enough good things about Samantha and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her service! She is a true artist, and an even better person! We are ever so grateful!
If you want a wedding video that will leave you crying tears of joy, Samantha Carpio will make it happen. The reasons why you should hire her is because of her impeccable editing skills and attention to details in shots. She captured small moments that really tugged me at my heart strings. If you're the kind of person where music expresses something in you that you can't express in your own words, pick her. Her music selection for her videos are so thoughtful towards the feel of what she captured, and that's what made me and my husband want to hire her. I don't know how else to say it- she's amazing.
One of the most smartest decisions we've ever made in the entire wedding process was to get Samantha as our videographer. We absolutely loved her video and we've received so many comments that it was so well done, it looked like a movie. She truly exceeded all our expectations. She made us feel at ease and was extremely professional and dedicated to her work. There was a moment in our wedding when she ushered my husband and I to dance, which then led to me and my dad dancing--one of the best moments of the night. Only a seasoned videographer would know when and how to capture "that" moment. For those still wondering whether to get a videographer or not, I can honestly say that its worth it. Besides the edited video, we were given raw files of every clip taken and my husband and I are so grateful to be able to watch everything that transpired, including precious moments that we wouldn't otherwise see (i.e. My husband giving presents to his groomsmen and my brother visiting them). We still watch our video almost every day and couldn't get enough. Thank you Samantha and Simon!
Samantha Carpio did a great job filming all aspects of or pre-nuptial video. John and I are not really into the whole “acting” thing, but she made it fun and enjoyable so the video looked natural. Samantha has a good eye for good shots. John and I didn’t have a place in mind/setting in mind for our pre-nuptial video… Samantha knew exactly where to go and how to go about it! The video was beautiful and well executed! The video was more than what we expected! John and I were teary eyed when we saw it! Samantha is a true professional and is one of the most pleasant person you can talk to! We highly recommend her!!! John and I are very grateful!!!
Samantha was absolutely amazing! We had booked Samantha through our wedding coordinator, and boy were we lucky. We looked at her other videos she had done for weddings, and they were all beautifully put together. We were not able to meet with Samantha prior to our wedding, but we were able to have a long video chat conversation with her. She was so personal, friendly, and was so excited for our big day! The day of the wedding was great. She showed up with a smile and she was ready to shoot. She was so funny and really eased us into all the shots she wanted for our video. We received our highlight reel about a month from our wedding. Oh my goodness! I cried like a baby, it was so well put together. She captured all the highlights from our wedding and even included our vows. We were so lucky to have Samantha be the videographer at our wedding. She captured all the best moments, and we can not wait to see all the raw footage!
Captured the Emotion of our Day
Samantha, from Samantha Carpio Wedding Cinematography, is beyond wonderful! We are so happy that we chose Samantha and her team. My husband is the one who wanted a cinematographer. I was very hesitant, but after meeting Samantha in person, she is just so friendly, professional and she also understood the feel of the video we were looking for, I just couldn’t refuse. I am so glad we found her! She totally captured the emotion of our special day. There are no words to express how thankful we are to her. Samantha exceeded all of the expectations we had. Her style and editing are impeccable. Samantha shoots not only with her eye but also with her heart. The feeling and emotions that are captured are amazing and something you cannot obtain from a picture.
I am SO happy I had Samantha and her team at my my wedding to capture every important moment! She was so wonderful and professional to work with throughout my wedding. She even stopped by the venue before my rehearsal dinner to meet me and my husband (we live in San Francisco and couldn't meet with many of our vendors in person beforehand) to make sure she had a good idea of what we wanted captured in our wedding video.
She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. After our wedding ceremony, my husband and I had to rush to a spot where I wanted to take a sunset picture. My veil was flying everywhere while the photographer was setting up the perfect lighting and the sun was quickly setting. Samantha ran over to set up my cathedral veil so it flowed beautifully behind me. I will always remember her doing that and helping me get an amazing picture I'll always cherish.
She was not obtrusive and, even though we had multiple photographers as well as Samantha's team, none of the guests felt they were in the way. In fact, many guests loved finding Samantha so they could show up in our wedding footage haha!
Ultimately, we LOVED our highlight video she put together for us. I can't stop watching it, and my family and friends were so excited when they saw it too. Thank you so much, Samantha, for giving us a lifetime of memories!
Amazing service, very patient, always with a smile on her face, very responsive and genuinely cares about the client and their needs. We were so lucky to have Samantha as the videographer. We will definitely be contacting her again!!
I am soo thankful to have worked with Samantha for our wedding video! She was able to create the exact idea I had in mind for the shoot- from choosing the right location, to the cinematography, the final product was like a trailer to a romantic movie
Samantha Carpio Wedding Cinematography was an absolute blessing! I'm so lucky I found her. We had a very specific style that we wanted our wedding shot and Samantha exceeded our expectations. I am a filmmaker myself, so this was the one part of the wedding that I definitely needed to shine. Wow, did it ever. We got exactly what we wanted! The style and the edit is perfect. We were both brought to tears when we watched our video. Samantha was also very easy going and didn't need to be told what to shoot. She worked very well with our photographer, which I've heard does not always happen. Our photographer even commented on how professional and on point Samantha was. I don't think either of us were expecting how much this video would mean to us and how important it would be for it represent us and our special day. Thanks to Samantha, we definitely do now. She knocked it out of the park and we are forever grateful! Thank you so much, Samantha!
Our wedding video turned out absolutely amazing! I could not have been happier! Samantha was very responsive to my requests- I didnt want a camera in my face the whole day and she was able to capture everything beautifully but without being intrusive at all. i would highly recommend her for any wedding video projects!
