We are film lovers. And what really grabs us are the subtleties of certain moments. The smile on his face when he sees her for the first time. Small gestures, the touch of a hand. Those are the moments we capture. Not just a beautiful snapshot of a moment, but the whole moment as it naturally unfolds.
Taylor Films is a premier cinematography studio specializing in wedding and corporate event videography. We provide cinematic records of life events, the moments that photography misses. The moments in between, when real life happens. If that style of event videography sounds appealing to you, read about our different services below.
Each couple is unique, and even after filming over a thousand weddings, we still find something surprising in every shot. Something breathtaking. And it’s almost always when the couple doesn’t realize anyone is watching. Imagine yourself so absorbed in the moment that the world slips away around you—and it is just the two of you. We are storytellers, there to capture the story of your day.
What we strive for is timeless and classic. We don’t stage shots. We witness them. A moment that fifty years from now will remain beautifully composed, artistically edited, and emotionally alive.
Not just a moment between the two of you, but the time when your grandmother was still there, or you danced with your father. You and your family in real time. We create the cinema of your life.
Our approach is discreet and thoughtful. We blend into the atmosphere of the event, so the experience is personal, seamless, effortless. Natural. Just the way it happens.
As you can see in our sample wedding videos, TAYLOR FILMS excels in the art of wedding cinematography in San Diego. We are happy to tackle any location, wedding style and special requests you have, while always bringing our signature attention to detail and focus on the natural process to the table. If you want a wedding film that feels more like a story than a music video, then we’re the best wedding cinematographer in San Diego for you.
Taylor Films offers full service creative and corporate video production.
Whether a promotional or instructional video, helping you market a new product, or setting the stage for an important business event, TAYLOR FILMS video productions appeal to investors, clients, and customers, all the while maintaining your corporate brand.

My father instilled in me the love of great film. I first watched Casablanca with him as a boy. Emotion and story, he said. This is what makes a great movie. These classic films created a genuine connection with the audience through brilliant storytelling.
While the classics and westerns that relied on story and not on special effects shaped my creative vision, it took decades of study and hard work to master my craft.
With over twenty years of experience in both wedding and commercial cinematography, I have worked with over a 1000 couples, as well as corporate clients Continental Airlines, Subway, Pepsi, Cox Communications and more. Over the years, my studio has come to be recognized as premiere in Southern California. This success has allowed me to train and mentor other talented filmmakers, branching out into new and fascinating collaborations. My biggest and most exciting role to date, however, is as husband and father.
