    Wonderful! So happy we found Steven!

    We highly recommend Steven! He was the videographer for our wedding and we are overjoyed by his work! His cinematography and editing skills are sublime. We love our edit and will treasure it forever! Not only is Steven's work incredible, he is so great to work with. He is down-to-earth, very sweet, and extremely caring. Amidst planning our wedding in the Covid era (and on a very short time-frame), there were a lot of elements to our wedding that we needed help with. Steven gave his all to be there for us and help us every step of the way, which was a huge blessing. Prior to the event, we not only discussed what we'd like from our wedding videography, but Steven also helped us edit our day-of schedule based on his lengthy experience in this business. He was even gracious enough to come to our venue the day before the event and help us set up and decide which spots would be ideal for us to use visually and cinematically! Throughout the whole process, he kept us feeling calm and safe at an otherwise very stressful time. We couldn't be more grateful. Last but certainly not least, Steven's talent as a videographer is top-notch. He has an eye for beauty and he knows how to give you different styles for whatever outcome you'd like. We personally found that his cinematic shots are absolutely stunning! He was also so nimble and did not miss a single beat of our wedding, even though there were many parts of it that were not traditional. We chose to only get one videographer, but Steven made sure that he would still cover all angles at all times. He set up still tripods with cameras - focused on the areas of the main action, and then he walked around with a steadicam on him to capture all the details from different angles. This allowed him to cut between different shots within the same scenes for our video edit. We are so grateful for all of Steven's thoughtful work, his kindness and care toward us, and his talent in this field! We will definitely be hiring him again for our events in the future. Thank you, Steven! You're amazing!

    Fantastic and relaxed videographer

    Steven Is exactly what we wanted! My husband was very hesitant to get a videographer as he thought it would be too much of a production, but Steven really stood out of the way and barely made his pretense known, but still managed to make us the most beautiful wedding highlight reel. I couldn’t be happier!!! He also worked very well with the photographers even though he’d never met them before.

    Nor Cal Filmworks perfectly captured our day!

    We are so glad we selected Nor Cal Filmworks as our wedding videographer! Steven's quality of work is amazing, and he's professional, personable, and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera right away. I'd recommend paying the extra fee to have a second videographer there - totally worth it! Steven was very receptive to our preferences and edits, and we were so happy with our finished product.

    The best videographer one could ask for!

    We loved having Steven be part of our special day. He spent many hours beforehand prepping us for the big day and made us feel so at ease throughout the process. He was a delight to have around on the actual day and you can tell he truly loves what he does. Above all, his video of our wedding is absolutely exquisite and more beautiful than we could have imagined. We wholeheartedly recommend him to every future bride and groom!

    Best videographer ever!


    STEVEN IS AMAZING!! We were so lucky to find him! He shot our friend’s wedding the year before, and after we saw his work, we knew immediately we had to book him for ours. He is truly an artist and so great at what he does. He has an eye to capture all the details in such a creative way. Anyone who views his videos will be completely stunned.

    Steven is so kind, flexible and has a lot of patience, making him very easy to work with. He was more than happy to edit our video to make sure it captured everything we wanted. It was very exciting to see how he captured our big day through the lens of a true artist. All the little details were so perfect.

    We wish we had another event so we could work with him again. He is such an amazing person, and it was an honor to get to know him and work with him. We HIGHLY recommend booking Steven for your big day. He is worth every penny and more. Thank you Steven!! We can’t thank you enough for your amazing talent!

    Working with Steven was the best! He was very professional and was also very social and fun to be around. He covered our wedding day for 8+ hours on 12.31.16 and the footage turned out absolutely amazing. He was working his butt off, too. Steven is very approachable and accommodating to meeting your exact needs. He met with us 2 weeks beforehand, via Facetime to go over our wedding timeline. He is also available to meet in person but due to limitations on our end we did it via Facetime. That really helped getting a feel for how the day went. Honestly, we were a bit unprepared for the meeting in terms of exact details of certain shots we wanted, etc. Steven, with his experience, was able to give us a few ideas on what to look for, how to act like the camera isn't there, etc. He just made everything very smooth and easy and we can't express that enough.

    We decided to do the editing portion on our end, so he provided us with all of the raw footage from the big day. Even after he delivered the footage, he was very open to questions we had on editing tips, storage, etc. Can't ask for more than that.

    To sum it all up: he does amazing work, he's a great guy to be around and on top of that he is a true professional. I would highly recommend hiring Steven and his team to film your wedding, you will not regret it!

    Thanks again, Steven.

    We had given up on finding a videographer that would work for us when we came across Steven and NorCal Filmworks. We are SO glad that we found NorCal Filmworks and that they were available to film our May 23, 2015 wedding at Pageo Lavender Farm in Turlock, CA. Steven went above and beyond for us and gave us a wedding video that captured everything we could have hoped for! Honestly, the wedding day was such a blur for me (as a bride) that I could barely remember any of the details and having this video is priceless, he captured every detail with such amazing quality! I can't recommend NorCal Filmworks enough!

    Steven of Nor Cal Filmworks was wonderful to work with. We had a wedding at our home, and he came out and met with us there to discuss exactly what we wanted and check over the site in detail. We had some specific thoughts about the look and feel we were after in our highlights video, and he nailed it. Steven was very open to and responsive to our ideas and blended in so well during the ceremony and reception that we barely noticed him. Our friends and family were extremely impressed by the quality of our video, and we love it. Nor Cal Filmworks was also much more reasonably priced than a lot of the ither videographers we looked at, so we feel we got excellent value.
