Aaron and his team were super clutch. They are some of the most personable, hard-working filmmakers you'll meet. Aaron is a natural at capturing cinematic moments and being present in any situation. He will make your whole bridal party feel beautiful and comfortable. They run around with so much gear on their bodies, but you can tell their experience by how efficient they are and just the endurance to capture the whole day at the same level all day.
Dom (2nd shooter) helped the groomsmen cut the threads that sewed our pockets closed on our new sports coats (they had no idea!), he saved the father of the groom by tying his bow tie (nobody around us knew how!), he helped the groom look his best by fixing his hair during the photo shoots, and overall just brought a welcoming personality wherever he went to shoot.
Once it was show time, you never really knew Aaron and Dom were there. They were stealthly capturing each moment letting us and our guests enjoy the day.
A friend told my husband the night before the wedding, "tomorrow is going to be the fastest, longest day of your life." You are going to want a team that can capture so many of the moments that not only you'll want to re-live again, but moments that you simply can't absorb because you can't be everywhere at once! You've spent all this time, money, and effort into your wedding day, so if you can get Aaron Lee and his team to cover your day, it will be all worth it!

When my husband and I first started the wedding planning process we agreed the most important part of our wedding would be the memories we would keep. That’s when we decided to hire a videographer. After viewing some of Aaron’s work- we were blown away with his talent! I must have seen 10 wedding films and cried watching every one. They are all so different but he captures the beauty and details of each one separately. We knew we had to book him and were so excited when it was official!
I was impressed with Aaron’s dedication from the beginning. He responded to all my emails very quickly. I remember he texted me the first time we inquired about our wedding date availability. He just wanted to make sure his email reply did not go to my junk mail so we would know he was available. The week of the wedding, he requested to have the timeline sent to him. Aaron wanted to make sure he knew exactly what time everything was so he would be prepared to not miss anything. I was truly impressed he offered to attend the wedding rehearsal to meet us. It made me feel at ease knowing he truly cared and wanted to get to know us and our wedding party beforehand. Before the ceremony on my wedding day, my maid of honor lost my husband’s ring in the vineyard where we were taking photos. Although everyone lied and said she lost an earring, I knew better. I was so relieved to find out that Aaron was the one that found the ring! Instead of just sitting back, he was there helping with everything on my wedding day. Aaron truly just goes above and beyond for his clients!
His assistant, Dominic was amazing as well. Both have true talent and it was a pleasure to work with them. I know our finished product will be amazing and we will be able to share with our friends and family for years to come. I highly recommend having a videographer for your wedding- it will be the best investment you make and you must choose the best- Aaron Lee!

Aaron just shot my August 16th Sonoma wedding at Jacuzzi Winery and I am SO happy we found him. First off, this guy is seriously creative and truly an artist, not just some standard wedding videographer. While I have not seen the finished product yet, I know its going to be amazing. He went above and beyond the "contracted" time limit and did not miss a moment. He even showed up to our rehearsal to "get to know our bridal party" through his lens. Talk about dedicated.Sent on 09/03/2014
Aside from his talent, he was also so nice to be around on a somewhat hectic and very intimate day. I was actually hesitant at first to even get a videographer because I thought that I would be too "aware" of them camera being around me all day. From the start, he was not only discreet, but he was a pleasure to be around. He had an extremely calming presence, even helping out when the clasp on my dress broke. Somehow he had pliers on-hand! His assistant, Kyle, was equally a joy to be around. He spent most of the day with the groomsmen and a lot of them mentioned how cool he was!
My wedding was the best day of my life, but it did go by fast and I felt like I missed things. I am so grateful that it wasn't only caught on film, but that Aaron Lee was the one to capture it. If you are going to get a videographer, do it right and go with Aaron. It will be one of the best decisions you make!

After watching our wedding video, I just couldn't stop replaying it. I still watch it whenever I need a little lift to my mood! It was literally that good. It was definitely something we were proud to show our friends and family. Even though our wedding was very small and intimate, it was a completely worthy investment!
From all the vendors my husband and I had to choose from for our destination Napa Valley wedding, Aaron was one of the easiest and most obvious choices. He came highly recommended by our wedding coordinator as well as our super talented photographer. Beyond that, what truly sold us were the videos featured on his site. They are so full of emotion, so real and truly capture the love and happiness of the day.
With that said, Aaron still surpassed all of our expectations! He has this unique way of capturing the personality of a couple and their family and representing them so authentically, in the best way possible. His ability to showcase the beauty of the venue and capture all the fun, loving, special moments of the day was just remarkable. To top it off he was so incredible to work with. He needed zero direction, so professional and I couldn't help but trust he will do an amazing job. We could not be more impressed and grateful to have found him! He created such a beautiful memory for us and our families to cherish forever.

With aging parents and a brother in a assisted living home, Michele and I decided that the only way to include them in the wedding was to stream the wedding live to those we loved or could not travel to be with us.
Aaron made several visits to the estate to ensure that the wifi bandwidth and quality was good for the day.
On the day Aaron and his partner not only streamed the wedding service live but captured recorded footage of the event for later editing.
Aaron Lee films were true professionals and would recommend them to anyone wanting to record a special event.

Aaron Lee and his crew and top notch and undoubtedly the best in the business. They were able to capture every beautiful moment from our wedding and more. They were incredibly fun to work with both at the wedding and the weeks following and they are wonderfully flexible and helpful. I don't think I can possibly explain how beautiful our video turned out. Their team's artistry, creativity, and sensitivity are all so apparent in the final product. I highly recommend working with Aaron and his team to ALL couples getting married in the Bay Area and beyond. We treasure this video more than anything and know that all couples will benefit from their first rate work! Not only do I feel grateful for their work, but I feel blessed to have been able to meet Aaron. He cares deeply about his customers and their happiness!

Aaron and Dominic are, simply put, AMAZING. And Daniel, the editor, so incredibly talented. We showed our video to friends, family and colleagues and they we all stunned by the beauty, emotion, and professionalism of the final product. Aaron and Dominic are so skilled at what they do, you barely even feel like you are on camera - and they are two of the nicest people I have ever met. Seriously would have regretted not hiring them and missing out on having our wedding captured in a way I never thought possible - magical! Can't thank them enough - word of advice - hire them! You don't want to miss the moments the will so gracefully and heartfully reveal to you.

Creative, professional and fun! Aaron created the most amazing wedding video for my husband I last October. When I got engaged I knew I wanted the day documented. I started researching videographers. I contacted Aaron immediately after I saw his website. He was quick to respond and sent me (for free) several films he's done for us to take a look at. He takes wedding films to another level. He not only records the day, he creates a story. He came to the rehearsal, our parents homes the day of the wedding and had everything setup for the ceremony hours ahead of time. His crew was on top of it. My fiancé had concerns that the videographer would be distracting. Aaron dressed professionally and blended right in. After the wedding he created a short highlight film and a full length film. We were able to share the highlight video with friends and family. We have no regrets on hiring Aaron. He exceeded my expectations and captured the whole day beautifully.
Evelyn · Married on 07/30/2011
Your search should stop right here.
Hiring Aaron Lee was by far the best decision we made.
He went above and beyond his call of duty before, during and after our wedding. He was so incredibly professional and so easy to work with! Just when we thought our experience with Aaron couldn't be more perfect--we got our highlight reel--it's seriously AMAZING. It's NEXT LEVEL--my husband and I were completely blown away. In fact everyone who's watched it is in disbelief. We live and work in Hollywood--and his work is motion picture quality. If you really want to document your big day right--Aaron Lee is the way to go, no questions asked. Book him while you still can!

We were on a tight budget, so we were contemplating whether we needed a professional videographer for our wedding. However, Aaron's work with one of our friends' wedding was so impressive that we decided we needed a great video to document our wedding. We are so glad we made that decision. Aaron is one of the most pleasant, hardworking person to work with. He took the initiative to come to the rehearsal (we didn't even ask hime to) so he can prepare for the actual wedding day. He was friendly and cordial to everyone at the wedding. Again, he took the initiative to ask us and the photographer about taking some outdoor night shots. We snuck out and took some beautiful shots just outside the restaurant where we held the reception...those shots add so much more to the wedding photos and video. The wedding movie and highlights he created were incredible. The finished products he sent us were beyond our expectations. One of our friends who wasn't able to attend our wedding watched the video, and she cried. We are so happy so be able to have Aaron document our wedding memories.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Aaron on our wedding video. We didn't engage him until about 2 weeks before our wedding (we thought we didn't need a video -- which in retrospect, is ridiculous!!!) so he got us up to speed very quickly. He even made himself available for our rehearsal dinner and used that footage it our final DVD, as well. Needless to say the video is awesome!!! We are super happy we entrusted our wedding video to Aaron, and we HIGHLY recommend him... -Greg Robin
Christy · Married on 10/09/2009
Aaron's services were suggested to us by San Francisco Destination Weddings, when the original videographer opted out. We were on a tight budget, Aaron worked with us & he came on board just DAYS before we flew from one coast to the other to be married! He was A-1 professional! We were worried that our voices would be overcome by the wind on the mics but Aaron's experience as a newsie brought all that worry to a halt, quickly. Everything sounded great, looked great and was available to us within a very short period of time. He even provided DVDs for our parents -- he was off the charts wonderful to work with. We would recommend him to anyone in the Bay Area, hands down.
Natalie · Married on 08/01/2009
Aaron is so great to work with! He is personable, responsive, and truly passionate about his work. He got great shots without ever feeling intrusive. He filmed the rehearsal at no extra charge to "get a feel for the place and do a dry run". It's only been three weeks since our wedding, but we've already received a sneak peak of a section of our video. He shot my friend's wedding and did a great job capturing the feel of the whole day in one, what he calls montages - one or two songs with snippets from the day. Every video she received was awesome and shot/edited in a way that really captured the spirit of each moment. We have loved working with Aaron and can't wait to see our finished product!
Nelson · Married on 06/13/2009
After my wife searched, and searched some more for a videographer, she found Aaron! After watching his work on his website I was impressed. We were able to hire his services for our wedding and it was the best decision we made. Aaron is AWESOME! He captured every special moment and even went out of his way at times to make sure he got all the details of our wedding (especially since my beautiful wife was the wedding planner). Thanks Aaron! All the best always.
megan · Married on 07/13/2008
I highly recommend Aaron Lee! My wedding video turned out beautifully...EXACTLY what I wanted. Aaron is easy to work with and was totally open to any suggestions I had in editing the video, etc. He was always willing to go the extra mile to make his customer 100% satisfied and happy. If I could I would have given him 6 stars throughout the 5 criterias listed. Aaron deserves off the chart ratings (and I mean it)!
Alissa · Married on 05/30/2008
I was actually a bridesmaid in the wedding. But from the start, Aaron went above and beyond. He came to the wedding rehearsal to check everything out. Then on the day of the wedding he was there from beginning to end, making sure not to miss capturing a thing. He was very professional the whole day. Then when I saw the video I thought he had definitely done an awesome job!! It truly captured the whole day with such a personal touch. I would definitely want him to video my own wedding someday.
Darci · Married on 02/29/2008
We were so lucky to have Aaron Lee film our wedding! From the first conversation I had over the phone with him to the day we received our videos, Aaron made himself incredibly available to us, answering any and all questions we had and taking any ideas we had for our video. My husband and I had already seen some of his work and loved it and, other than a few key things we wanted to see that Aaron graciously added, we really left the art up to him... And we were very satisfied by the final product! He really managed to observe who we were individually and as a couple and captured our day so accurately and beautifully I felt like a super star. Aaron Lee is an incredibly gifted master of his craft, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants the most magical wedding video possible.
NE · Married on 01/19/2008
Talk about a cool videographer that got along with ALL my 520 guests! I really appreciated how he came to my rehersal the day before, and captured my stressful day, but he made it beautiful. Aaron is such a great videographer, everytime I watch my wedding video, it just brings back beautiful memories! A year of planning, gone in 12 hours...but thanks to Aaron, he turned it into A DAY TO REMEMBER!
Claudine · Married on 08/25/2007
Aaron was amazing throughout the whole process - from planning to the event to the final product! My entire family felt comfortable with him and I was confident that he would capture my big day beautifully.
