The first question I always get asked is why 5 Star? It’s a rather generic name some say! It has nothing to do 5 star ratings or 5 star service, though we have both. 30 years ago my mother started a business called 5 Star Demonstration Service with a few hundred dollars and a dream. She made that dream successful and always had a place for family within the business. Today I want to carry on that dream, vision and keep the name alive and in the family for my children to use when the time comes for them. Family means everything!
My wife and I have tried to be partners in this business. This has been tricky because of her pregnancy and now we have little boys running amuck. Until she’s completely able to come back and shoot I’m using good friends of mine who are Academy of Arts graduates who have regular jobs. Good people with good attitudes equal a winning wedding film and experience. That’s the 5 Star experience!
“From our family to yours” as I like to say. Now you know the meaning of this saying and our business name. We hope to have the chance to build a wonderful relationship providing you and your family, not just your wedding day needs but film and photography needs over the years.
A little more about the history of 5 Star Wedding Films.
You might have heard of 5 Star Video from 10 years ago. I started the wedding video company in my mid 20’s with a successful 6 years in business producing over 100 wedding videos. Wanting to learn more about film, I sold off my equipment and left for film school overseas where I worked on features, shorts, commercials, and more while shooting on the most advanced cameras. I worked with some amazing professionals that helped me sculpt my craft helped me excel in lighting and audio creativity.
After film school and arriving back in Sacramento I went to work taking gigs on features, commercials, television shows, and various corporate videos. I worked on projects like SMOSH, number one youtube channel, Jiffy Lube, CalTrans, Unique Eats, Unique Treats, and more.!
