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".

Congratulations on Your Engagement!
We are Steve & Kat Rivers, videographers, visual storytellers, husband and wife team...
and we love weddings!
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!
“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.
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!
Photography can capture moments but video is the only way you can look back and hear the vows, toasts, and laughter of your wedding.
Wedding Day Videos
Your wedding is a major event and likely one of very few times in your life when all your friends and family come together to show their love and support. It’s the perfect occasion to capture on video. Our films are short, yet inclusive and it's like watching a feature film of your day. We specialize in short-form wedding films. This means we focus on making you a "cinematic film" that tells the story of you and your amazing wedding day.
Love Story Videos
Interview based love story engagement videos are a fun way to showcase how you and your partner met and fell in love. We'll take you to a scenic location and ask you both questions about how you met, when you knew it was love and more. We then assemble a fun and engaging video that you can keep for yourselves, share on the internet and even show it at your wedding if you like! We'll also include it on your wedding USB drive.
Do you really
need a wedding
Many couples don’t feel the need to spend money on wedding videography since they have a photographer. Don't make this mistake. Couples that cut video from the budget regret it! Here are some quotes from a recent article posted on a popular wedding web site:
"DO IT!!!!! I promise you will not regret spending the money. You may not think you want to relive every minute, but after the day you have been meticulously planning for months flies by in what feels like seconds, you will be desperate for a way to remember it!"
"The only regret I have about our wedding is not having a videographer. The day goes by so quickly—you really miss so much of it. I look back now and wish I would have spent the money for it."
5 Reasons To Choose Us
We only use properly licensed music to create your wedding film. This ensures your video will not get pulled from the internet for containing popular songs that are protected by DMRA copyrights. With the advent of Facebook, YouTube and other video sharing sites, recording artists or their labels have been ordering more and more videos to be taken down for copyright infringement and suing the companies that created them! For your protection and ours, we follow the law.
We take filming your wedding seriously so we don’t just leave things to chance. Some venues require vendors to carry liability insurance. Rest assured that we are fully insured and licensed by the state of Florida. We can provide our business license and proof of insurance on request.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your lives. We get that and will work hard to create a lasting memory for you to share for years to come. We use high resolution videography cameras and audio recorders and with ninja-like stealth we are everywhere recording everything. We will spend hours after your wedding pouring over all of the footage, carefully editing all of the clips, audio and music together to create a film we are proud to put our stamp on.
We approach each wedding with the vision of creating an emotional and magical movie that is as interesting as you are. Every film is color graded to high standards, edited with finesse and great effort goes into making each wedding video a true film. We focus on the intimate details as well as the grand moments and use creative storytelling techniques to make an amazing film that captures your unique story and the magic of your special day.
We don't use a formula, we get to know the bride and groom to create a unique story that is true to the couple's personality. We take the time to meet and get to know our couples before wedding day for a more personal and meaningful experience.
We're Super Friendly!
