about us...

Our mission: capture memories and create movies to last a lifetime. 

Riviera Productions grew out of a passion for telling real, personal stories. There are so many little moments in life that go by so fast - we see and capture them so those memories not only last, but are there to be replayed any time you want to remember, and smile. 

Our team shares a passion for collaboration, film and storytelling.  We have over 25 years combined experience in video production, including award-winning documentaries and films.  We have filmed at venues all over Santa Barbara County and beyond, and know all the great spots to get the shots!

On your wedding day, let us capture the countless moments between you and your family, guests and friends that all contribute to your story.  Each wedding is unique, and we love to capture your romance, joy, love, friendship and celebration. Your wedding film gives you the chance to see, hear and feel each moment of your wedding again and again.

We consistently hear one thing from every couple we have filmed - that the day goes by "in a whirlwind."  When you see the film we created, you get to see the moments across the room that you missed, or experience again a moment that went by in a flash. That feedback is always our biggest thrill and compliment.

So, get in touch.  We want to hear your story.
