Here's what our couples are saying...
Thank you for all of your hard work and patience with our revisions. I'm sure you hear this a lot, but David & I are so glad we decided to opt for the video of our wedding day. At a moment when we were bleeding more money than we ever had before, we definitely made the right decision to ask you to capture our day in a way photos and memories can't. You managed to get exactly the things I wanted to remember -- the pumpkins, hugs, dances, menus, sunset, the view -- and you used your artistic license to create a sweet, loving and fun feel. The work you've done for us is just beautiful. Thank you. We are truly grateful!

Your easy going personality and professionalism with a smile, made it a pleasure to work with you.
-Lisa Kahn, Lisa Kahn Events, Los Angeles, CA
It's perfect, we love it so much, thank you for all your hard work! We were with our families over the weekend and showed them the video and they were blown away, so we are all just overjoyed to have these beautiful videos of our wedding day.
-Sammy & David, Glen Annie Golf Club, Goleta, CA
Our beautifully crafted wedding video far exceeded our expectations. Jennie and her team captured all of the big, important moments, but also many subtle details that my husband and I were too busy to experience fully on our big day. Watching the footage, we feel so fortunate that we chose Riviera Productions to capture these once-in-a-lifetime memories!
-Abbie & Brandon, El Capitan Canyon, Goleta, CA
Riviera Productions shot our wedding video and it was one of the best choices we made. We've watched the video every year on our anniversary - it's a great way to re-live the day, and an even better way to remember what was said, really hear and remember the toasts, and see what was happening while we were otherwise occupied. The finished product was polished and very professional, they managed to catch everything without being conspicuous, which was a great bonus. We'd highly recommend Riviera Productions for your wedding day.

Hiring a videographer last minute was SUCH a good idea, because Jennie is AMAZING. SUPER personable (which is VERY important along with talent), extremely creative, and easy to work with. She listens, goes above and beyond to make you happy and give you a great service. SO happy with how our footage turned out. (and we're a director/wedding photographer couple, so we're extra picky)!
-Michelle & Colin - Elings Park, Santa Barbara, CA
I think that [the DVD] is the best wedding gift you could give me. I love it…
-Deb & Sean, Santa Barbara Polo Fields, Summerland, CA
The video is fantastic! You did such a great job. You made the wedding look just as fun and happy as it was! Thank you soo soo much! We love it!
-Meredith & Ron, Private estate, Hood River, OR
I have been an event coordinator in the Santa Barbara area for 11 years and absolutely adore working with Jennie and her team. Always smiling, they love what they do - and they do it so well. The care and heart that goes into their work is apparent from the first moment of contact. It is always a pleasure working with them and the result is touching, beautiful artistry that lasts for a lifetime.
-Leanne Elliott - Soleil Events, Santa Ynez, CA
It was such a pleasure working with Jennie and her team. After meeting with several other videographers, we decided to hire these two because they are actually filmmakers. They've made several documentaries before, even won awards for a few. We wanted mostly documentary style - a streamlined, beautiful account of our day. These ladies did not disappoint! They took every single suggestion we made (from music choices and font style to a million other pesky little requests) and incorporated them into the final edit. We must have driven them crazy with our requests, but they never let on and were always professional and very nice to work with. The final product is exactly what we wanted. Really, it is EXACTLY what we wanted. I would love to recommend them to as many brides as possible.
-Kathy & Laith - Alice Keck Park, Santa Barbara, CA
Wow, wow, wow, the highlight video made me cry!!! Thank you so much for doing that, really thank you!!!! I have to say you are great to work with, I would assume you get many repeat referrals because you are upfront, honest, caring and very professional and I really appreciate it!!! I will for sure be referring you to any and all who ask. I couldn't imagine having used anyone else, I was so lucky I found you!!!
-Lori & Dana - Westlake Village Inn, Westlake Village, CA
I am not a fan of being on film, but I didn't even notice the video camera the whole day. Jennie and her team really captured the essence of the event and our personalities.
-Rochelle & Jason - private estate, Montecito, CA
Thank you so much for Zak's Bar Mitzvah video. We're going to watch it until we're 100 years old!
-Jill & Randy - The Island, Denver, CO
Riviera Productions truly made all of the pieces of our wedding day come together. All of our vendors, our officiant, our wedding party, and of course our families and friends, were all fantastic contributors to our special day, but Rivera Productions was able to capture all of this on film! Of course, photographs are timeless, but having our wedding day on video is a decision we will never regret. Hearing our vows, seeing our first dance, seeing the truly happy (not "I'm taking a picture therefore I will smile") expressions on our guests' faces is priceless. Jennie and Riviera Productions not only captured all of these important moments and nuances, they also did so while being completely professional. We barely noticed that they were there--which is perfect for a videographer! They didn't have to ask us any questions or ask us to get into contrived positions--they knew instinctively what to film and what angles to film things from. We really could not have asked for more. Everything was perfect! Thank you, Riviera Productions!
