what sets us apart: spirited. inspired. storytellers.  when challenged to distinguish ourselves in three words, these are what we chose.  

pricing:  each budget and wedding is different.  we work with you to create a video package that fits within your budget and needs. packages start at $3000. inquire about elopement pricing. 

shooting: who will be filming my wedding? WE will! some companies subcontract their shooting and editing, but we think it's crucial to be there, experiencing the story that we ourselves later edit. we're all about quality over quantity.  

do you travel?   yes, please. 

we've booked, now what?   once you've determined we're a good fit, we'll create and mail you a contract, with all  the details. you can return the signed contract along with your 50% deposit, which will reserve your wedding date. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.  simple!

music:  please share 8-10 song suggestions that we can use for your feature video (via dropbox.) be sure to provide us with and note which songs you are using for your first dance, dad/daughter, mother/son, walk down the aisle, etc... if you have a particular song you want used in your highlight please let us know.

hours contracted: the time you have contracted us for begins at the agreed upon time per your contract. travel time between venues and dinner breaks are included in contracted time.

food:  we work better with food in our stomachs, so if we're working through the dinner hour, we ask that you provide a hot vendor meal for each of us!  thank you!

footage captured:  even though we are hired for a specific number of hours, we do not film continuously. we “shoot to edit” capturing all the moments you will want included in your video.

edit time:  we average 100 hours of editing on each wedding we film. as outlined in your contract, your preview video will be ready for viewing as specified in your contract (within 6 months).

raw footage:  we do not provide raw footage of your event. this is because every usable moment is included in your feature video.

archive:  we do not archive your video for longer than 14 days after delivery. if you would like your feature and/or highlight in digital format, we will transfer the quicktime files to a thumbdrive for an additional cost.

our name:  why 'riviera productions'?  we wanted to capture the essence of this beautiful place we call home.  we were inspired by santa barbara's reputation as "the american riviera" -  balmy nights, sunny days and beautiful views everywhere you turn.

We'd love to hear from you!  Call us at 805-965-2929 or info at rivierasb.com
