Stephen is kind, talented and wonderful to work with. If I could offer any advice for his future clients it would be this:
Hire him immediately before his schedule books up (which WILL happen) AND get the highlight film included in your package. You will be so glad you did! Thank you, Stephen!
Founder / Lead Videographer
After arriving from New York City in 2009, Stephen met other, local filmmakers and started creating wedding films. Soon after, his experience working with corporate video marketing on the east coast landed him work in broadcast television. While developing his career and building his company, he became known for shooting and editing visually stunning videos. On average, he accepts only two weddings per month so that each client receives the attention they deserve. All of the additional members of his filmmaking crew have been carefully selected over years of working together in video production here in San Diego. They are talented, award winning filmmakers and they have developed a distinct narrative style that is unsurpassed!
“Our philosophy is that wedding films are works of art and documentary filmmaking is the best way to preserve this important moment.” – Stephen
See Stephen's Commercial Work
In 2009, Stephen co-founded a commercial video production company, Blue Barn Creative. With his business partners, they set out to create the premier filmmaking company in San Diego. All the content they produce is based upon strong storytelling, concepts, and design. Together, they have won 7 Emmy Awards, San Diego Film Awards and they continue to raise the level of video production for every client they work with.
“If you need a videographer, don’t look anywhere else, don’t second guess, don’t go with anyone else. Stephen is it! I would recommend him to EVERYONE.”Jen D.
Stephen’s camera of choice is the Canon 1DX MarkII. It is a seriously powerful image making tool that films in 4K, captures rich and intense colors, yet is light enough to go anywhere. Having a smaller camera kit enables him to move around quickly and film like a ghost. Most couples forget he is in the room!
No prosumer equipment here….
To compliment his main camera during the ceremony, he uses a Canon 1DC 4K Cinema Camera, which is another excellent filmmaking camera. By choosing professional grade tools, Stephen delivers carefully crafted videography with exceptional levels of detail and color.
