Hello there! Vernon Alexander here... I am the lead videographer/editor and producer of my fine art wedding videography studio based in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, California. With over a decade of experience and hundreds of weddings filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area, Napa/Sonoma, Santa Cruz, Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur and Barcelona, Spain, my small but talented team has the knowledge and expertise to capture the essence of your special day.
I've spent ten years behind the lens and in the editing studio, crafting my own unique, poetic style of wedding film, inspired by my favorite filmmakers (Terrence Malick, Godard, Alfonso Cuarón, Paolo Sorrentino), and the couples that I film. I like to shoot with a light footprint, not overwhelming you with tons of cameras and lights, so you can focus on enjoying your special day...
Along with servicing the entire state of California, I also love an adventurous couple willing to throw a destination wedding. We film everything cinematically, in UHD 4K or 6K, providing the highest quality video and audio recordings of your special day. Other services, such as drone footage, are also available, providing a complete videography experience for every client.
Feel free to shoot me a message with any questions you have...
Let's make a movie!

Talented and easy to work with filmmaker
After my wife and I got engaged, we watched our parents' wedding videos. We found them profoundly touching and an important piece of capturing the celebration of their marriages. So for us, having a videographer was a top priority, but we found that many out there were just ok at making videos and that wasn't good enough us. After discovering and watching a number of Vernon's films, we knew we had to meet with him to learn more about his process.Sent on 01/26/2020
Not only was Vernon personable and easy to work with, he's got a sharp eye for cinematography and film making. It was important to us that he captured our style in the setting of our venue and he did so perfectly. My wife and I have watched our wedding video countless times and couldn't be happier.
We highly recommend Vernon Alexander Films. Don't take my word for it, check out his videos yourself!

Vernon is one of the best choices I made about my wedding planner.Sent on 01/31/2018
Before the wedding day, we quickly narrowed down our choices to two with Vernon being one of them. He's sincere, very easy to communicate and has a unique understanding about filming. I really like the films that he put on his website, and they are exactly the style I want! Also compared with other videographers, Vernon's price is very fair with lots of things in the package!
On the wedding day, Vernon came on time with his assistant. Our wedding day was the hottest of the recent five years in the bay area and imagine how hot it was for Vernon carrying the big machine running everywhere, not missing a single moment of us. Vernon was very good at catching some special moments of us, and we felt completely at ease when Vernon was videoing. Also Vernon came up with lots of creative ideas! We had some very romantic and sweet periods in the final films which came from Vernon's ideas.
After the wedding the highlights film came as a surprise to us, since it was so beautiful! The structure was clear, the music was carefully chosen to match the film, and the transitions very smooth. Vernon proved how talented he is with filming! Our perfect day was captured and stored in this perfect video. Thanks Vernon!
Vern is a talented videographer who I have worked with several times. His work is cinematic and he is a nice guy who will treat your guests well. I highly recommend him.
