Congratulations on Your Engagement!

We are Steve & Kat Rivers, videographers, visual storytellers, husband & wife team. We truly enjoy capturing special days of all kinds but we love weddings!

Steve

“I love a good love story” – said no guy ever! Well I’m a little different. I’ve always been a bit of a romantic and before I met my lovely wife Kat, I was a wedding DJ. As a wedding DJ, I loved being a part of a couple’s big day and helping to make it special for them. I met Kat at my day job. We had a wedding of our own and have since raised 3 wonderful kids. Along the way, we both developed a love of photography but I always had the video camera. I tried to make our family videos look like blockbuster films which ultimately spilled over into the cinematic style of wedding videography we do today.

Kat

We live and work in the Tampa Bay area and created SK Videography as a way to channel our passion and capture the beautiful love stories around us. We love what we do and it would be a privilege to capture your wedding, your legacy to share with your friends and family. We know the value of having a video of your big day and we want to be the team that makes yours!

Kat loves being behind a camera as well. When a project requires extra cameras, she is the woman for the job. In addition to being an awesome videographer, she has great creative vision. She uses her womanly powers to position items just right for the detail shots to create a great looking shot. During editing, she works with me and makes suggestions that improve the story and make a better film. Her creative side doesn't stop with photography. When she is not "with camera" you can often find her in the garage making something out of wood or in the yard re-doing the landscaping... again!

Why A Wedding Film is

Just as Important as Your Photos

Photos can capture a moment in time and are wonderful to have. Your photographer is normally one of the first three vendors booked for a wedding. But if you only have photographs of your wedding, your missing the big picture! You won't hear the inspiring toast the best man made or see the crazy dance your best friend did. With a wedding film you will see and hear your fiance reading your love letter, reciting his vows or see the anticipation waiting for the first look. You will hear the funny remark your officiant made during the reading and everyone's laughter. You will even see things you missed while you were busy. You get none of that with photographs.

Video captures movement and sound

If your parent's have a wedding video, it is likely over 2 hours long and consists of sudden jerky movements, shots of the floor, poor video quality, audio that can barely be heard and long sections of boring footage. These days videographers use high-def 4k cameras, professional audio gear and stabilization equipment to capture rock solid audio and video. We also have fierce software editing skills and use them to assemble a short Hollywood style highlight film with background music and voice over audio to tell the story of one of the most important days of your lives. 

Modern wedding films are amazing

Google it and you will find the number one regret brides have after their wedding is not hiring a videographer. Once the day is gone, you can't get it back. One of the best things about a wedding day film is that all of your friends and family will be there and your video will capture important family members that may be gone in a few years. Sure you could have a friend or relative record your wedding on their iphone or camcorder but trust us, the end experience will be very disappointing. They do not have the skill and equipment necessary to create the type of wedding video you deserve.

You will regret it if you don't budget for a wedding video

With today's technology, a simple click will enable you to share your video with anyone with a phone, tablet or computer. Those that attended your wedding will be amazed to see the whole day condensed into less than 10 minutes and friends and family that couldn't be there will feel like they were! Your future children and grandchildren will have fun seeing your younger selves on your biggest day. Some brides or grooms think they look silly on video. Many couples think they will only watch their video once. Most quickly find out they will watch it at least every year on their anniversary and sometimes more!

Wedding highlight videos are easy to watch and share

Compared to the cost of venues, caterers and photographers, a wedding video doesn't cost as much as you might think. We offer 3 different packages to fit different budgets and can create a custom package just for you if needed. If your budget is tight, you might consider cutting corners on things that won't last past the day like wedding favors, flowers or even a smaller cake. If you have to make sacrifices, we think it's much more important to capture the memories of your special day rather than splurge on things that won't make a difference later.

Professional wedding videos aren't as expensive as you think

One of our 5 star Google reviews:

"My husband and I were beyond thrilled with the way our video turned out. We've received comments such as its 'like watching a movie' and 'this has so much emotion it made us cry'. Steve and Kat are nothing short of cinematic professionals. They were very easy to work with and so accommodating. We highly recommend them!"
