My Process

Your wedding is the most important day of your life, and I do not take that lightly. I only book around 20 weddings a year in order to make sure that each wedding film receives the proper care and attention it deserves. Your wedding will be beautiful, and my goal is to make your wedding film even better.

Beyond creating you a top-quality wedding film, we are here to give you our undivided attention. Our goal is to make you feel like our only client; from customization of your packages to quick, honest and attentive communication, it is our job to listen to your story and desires. We want you to feel heard. We can't wait to tell your story, elevate your love and raw emotions through film, and make you feel like you're on the cover of Vogue Magazine.

All over Southern California

I love being a Southern California wedding videographer. Southern California provides some of the most diverse and beautiful backgrounds for a wedding that exist, and I couldn't be more excited to document them.

Hello I'm Kevin

Starting at a young age I always had a video camera in my hand - and growing up in the 90’s that was much less common than it is today. Over the course of 18 years I had the opportunity to produce over 1000 events and travel all over the world. During my free time I would pursue my love of filmmaking. I studied an online film school to take my hobby of filmmaking to a professional level. After filming my first wedding I was hooked. I loved capturing the emotion and one of a kind experiences. It's the most rewarding work I’ve done because I capture moments that last a lifetime. Receiving feedback from clients about how my work brings them back to their special day is what keeps me going.

Watch a Full Wedding Film - Go Fullscreen!

Yes, my films have a certain style, but each one is crafted to capture my couple's personalities, their style, and to tell their story. You may find yourself either very engaged in one of my films or not so much. This is a good thing! After all, if I’m creating films specifically catered to each couple, you are going to gravitate to the ones where the couple and the vibe are most like you. I also don’t film for a predetermined edit but rather I tend to shoot a lot more footage so I have a huge amount of footage work with in the editing studio. Enjoy watching!

5/5
This review focuses on Kevin's videography, but I must also highlight what an exceptional person he is. Kevin demonstrated true professionalism, always punctual, and was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with. On our wedding day, he skillfully captured every moment from various perspectives, creating a video that surpassed our expectations. We were moved to tears within seconds, and if we could, we would give Kevin and his team 20/10 stars! Highly recommend them!..

Kevin was incredible! He made everyone feel calm and comfortable and brought such a fun and light hearted energy while filming some great shots and creating the perfect video for my wedding!!!

My wife and I discovered Kevin Bernes through The Knot. We setup meetings with a number of people that The Knot also matched us with but there was one clear decisive winner. That was Kevin. We met Kevin over the phone and started to discuss our big wedding day. Kevin made it clear that he wanted to know where our priorities were and which moments from wedding day were going to be most important to us. He took notes as we talked and asked us tons of questions so he knew exactly what we desired. His friendly and professional demeanor were comforting to us and on top of that, he offers his professional services for a very fair price. On wedding day, Kevin showed up with some hired help to make sure he had enough hands in enough places to capture all of the special moments. Kevin's hired hand, Christian was just as friendly and professional as Kevin was. Kevin and Christian worked alongside our photographer seamlessly and told us exactly what to do and when to do it so we would look best for our video. We did just that. We looked our best with his and our photographers help! Kevin created a beautiful 8 and 1/2 minute video of our incredible day. The first viewing of the video brought my wife and I to tears. Who am I kidding though, the video still makes us cry no matter how many times we watch it. Kevin had captured all of the moments we told him we wanted and then some. The music beautifully overlayed the speeches of our wedding from our valued loved ones and created something magical for us. It is a treasure we will look back on for many years to come and show many of our loved ones. In addition, Kevin also got some awesome drone footage of the venue which turned out spectacular in the video. Kevin quoted us 8 weeks to put the footage together and complete the video and I believe he had the final draft to us in 7. My wife and I are 100% satisfied with Kevin's talents and his efforts. We recommended him to wife's sister who is also engaged and now he is doing their wedding as well. We are thrilled! Kevin gave us a complimentary 1 minute social media video of our wedding for sharing his name. So use Kevin and his services and share his name! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Kevin!

We love Kevin Bernes, he did a stunning job on our wedding video, he is a genius at capturing all the great shots and play music, and sound in a whole mix that it was perfect for each scene, he made it as in a movie, not a typical boring wedding video, he did a video that capture the attention and kept the people interested and wanting to keep looking at it. Very fresh, unique and perfect. And he do all this with a professional and outgoing attitude, very helpful, understanding, relax and very nice. We received way more of what we expected. I totally recommend him.

Perfect wedding video! We absolutely love our wedding video! It captured the day and the emotions perfectly. Kevin worked with us to tweak minor things in our video and was open to suggestions and feedback. Our video is something I will cherish forever. It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it. Thank you, Kevin!! -
ALYSSA S.
Kevin and his team killed it! Our wedding video was on par with a big budget movie. The audio was perfect, the sound mixing was great. The funny movements were all caught camera. Nothing was missed. He seemed to only capture my good angles. And of course my wife was perfect! If you'd like a wedding video you will never forget, this is your guy.
ADAM B.
Excellent, Professional and Passionate Photographer and Videographer Couple! Kevin and Cristina did an excellent job of recording and shooting photos at our wedding as well as at two separate beaches on the same day. They love their job and were heavily invested in the shoot, sharing their thoughts on the different lighting and beautiful areas with us. They helped to make our day very special, with a warm and nice atmosphere! They were friendly and professional and we highly recommend them!
CASEY
Kevin Bernes gave us a great experience-both in the filming process and with the finished video. He and his assistant were professional but felt like part of the family at the same time, and helped us through some last minute challenges that came with a beach wedding. He and his assistant handled everything with such an ease that helped not only the bride, but everyone relax. We found him after we had already hired a photographer, and we were so impressed with his (and his assistant's) interactions and workability with her to respect her process while also getting all the shots they needed. They had never met her and you would have thought they had choreographed it! They also made it fun but unforced. The bride and groom both appreciated that Kevin made the effort before the wedding to talk in length with them to ask specific things that would make their wedding unique and special. He then carried out those requests and incorporated them beautifully into the final video. The feedback we have been getting from the guests that were there, as well as those that weren't, is how beautiful, emotional, personal, and fun the video was. Many people commented that they had never seen anything like it--it was more like a movie than a wedding video-both in the style and the quality. He also had a great price, finished in the time frame he promised, and communicated very well about what to expect and carried out all of the details. It was an awesome experience to work with him!!!

Beyond happy with the videos we get to treasure forever. Kevin traveled with us to the Dominican Republic for our wedding. Throughout the week he was beyond courteous to all of our guests and captured many moments we would have otherwise missed with them. Our wedding video completey encapsulates the emotion of the day and is still something we enjoy watching. We also did a "trash the dress" video in a nearby cenote, ocean, and pool which turned out fabulously with the underwater elements. Kevin was 100% on from the airplane to ending and because of it, we have videos to treasure above and beyond what we expected and are forever grateful for it.

Fantastic Service! Amazing Editing! I am absolutely in love with my wedding video! He was able to really capture the day in such a beautiful and impactful way, couldn’t be happier. Video images are so clean and the way he edited the film made it so beautiful and emotional. I also really love how Kevin spent some time before my wedding to really discuss what was most important to me and what my vision was as far as my wedding video. He came equipped to not miss a thing, and gave me the opportunity to make changes or edits before giving me the final product with I really appreciated. Great service!
