From Maddie & Michael:
We Highly recommend Zachariah ! My husband and I were on the border of not having a videographer due to finances and last minute decision we thought we’d never get a videographer. It so happened that it was Zachariah’s only free available weekend in that month. It was the best last minute decision and investment we ever made for our wedding and these memories will last a life time and to be passed down to our children!!!
I cannot express how grateful we are to Zachariah for being so diligent throughout the entire process- getting to know us , our story, how we met , answering ALL of my detailed questions to creating our video with our music to go along in background.
Zachariah was so down to earth and really personable, friendly, professional right when we met him. During the wedding all our guest loved him. He was so friendly and blended in like a family member and was amazing capturing everyone’s emotions. It is clear Zachariah has a passion to capture every single aspect of weddings so that when the bride and groom watch it over-and-over again they relive their wedding experience.
Our video was so beautifully created together from the drone view capturing the whole venue and up close footage of the ceremony, the reception and getting ready and most importantly our emotions. My husband and I and along with our family members cried immediately when we watched our video and said this was the most amazing wedding film they ever watched!!!
** highly recommend getting the package with the drone included or add it on it was spectacular ***
From Lex & Josh:
WE LOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We watched it twice already. I’m guessing I’ll watch it another 5 times before bed. Absolutely truly love it. It just captured the day perfectly. Josh says its the best wedding video he’s ever seen, and he does not say thing to be nice or just because he’s in it… he also said “it brought back all the feels and tears, and now he’s emotionally spent”. I love love love it so much. Thank you so much for giving us something we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
From Anna & Brad:
This video is gold! There is no way for me to describe just how perfect it is and how much we love it!!!! We’ve watched it 10 times! Brad and I both started bawling our eyes out as soon as it started! It is such a perfect representation of the day and our love for each other. Thank you so much! You are incredibly talented and we could not be happier with the final product! We would highly recommend you to anyone and everything!
So much love my friend,
A & B
From Paige and Andy:
Hiring Zachariah was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. My husband and I were initially on the fence about whether to hire a videographer, but after talking to multiple brides and looking at Zachariah’s work, we decided to go for it. Boy are we glad we did!! Zachariah was a pleasure to work with, blending into the crowd and working seamlessly with our photographer. And most importantly, we are completely obsessed with the gorgeous video he made of our big day! We cannot stop watching it. Multiple friends have told us it they teared up while watching it, and even said it’s the best wedding video they’ve ever seen. We highly recommend Stillwater Cinematography!
From Averyl and Ben

A very grateful Averyl and Ben 🙂
From Megan and Andrew
We just got back from Belize a couple days ago and I’m finally catching up on emails and everything and I CANT tell you how amazing the video is!! Thank you so much for everything – for all of the love and energy you poured into this for us. We absolutely loved having you with us on that day. You are gold. You captured and articulated the essence of our day so beautifully and honestly. Thank you thank you!
From Kyle and Lindsey
This is amazing! Thank you for all your time and effort to make this so beautiful. Lindsey and I are grateful to have such a wonderful work of art to remember our wedding day!
ohh myyy goshhh!!!!! I love the video, the vows footage, and all the pictures Zachariah!!! Awww I cried!!!!! Thank you soooooo much!!! Ryan is gone tonight and hasn’t seen yet but I know he’ll love it all too! Thank you so much for getting this to us so quickly and for capturing our special day!!!! We cannot thank you enough!
From Erin + Ryan,
Ryan and I are finally relaxing on our honeymoon and reflecting on our wedding day, which was the best day of our lives … thanks in BIG part to you.
We have been joking about you even being there that day, since I rarely noticed you and your dad shooting – but I know that’s the best sign possible. You are a true professional. I loved that when we did consciously connect that day, like on the dock, your energy and good vibes were so contagious. You made us smile and laugh and ‘feel the love,’ and it was like having a good friend shooting our wedding, not just a videographer.
You are so amazing and we feel so lucky to have found you to shoot our wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being so incredible to work with and so talented, and for making our wedding day so special.
Talk soon (and Mahalo)!
With lots of love,
Erin and Ryan
Zachariah! The videos are amazing. Doug and I spent the night in watching all of it. Brought tears and many, many laughs. Memories to have and to watch for forever. I am so happy you were with us that day – we both are. Thank you so very, very much. So excited we have them! You are so incredibly talented!!!!
Hi, Zachariah! We haven’t seen the longer films yet, but you did a phenomenal job on the highlights film! We must have played it a zillion zillion times! I love what you did with the music! You made it look like not a single thing went wrong that day, and that’s how I would like to remember the day, lol. We will set aside some time soon to just sit down, relax, and watch the longer films when things aren’t so hectic because that deserves our undivided attention.
The highlight film they created for us was like a dream. I couldn’t have imagined it any better and I watched A TON of videos from other companies. The footage of the ceremony and the reception were wonderful as well. It was great to be able to see everything that happened behind the scenes since being the Bride and Groom means you miss out on so much. As a team, they worked so well with each other and with us and our guests. They blended in well even with their cameras. I never felt they were intruding or that they were in the way, yet they got beautiful, memorable footage. I was very impressed with the still images as well! I would use them again and recommend them highly to anyone looking for a unique, incredible, gorgeous and memorable wedding video. We played ours at our hometown wedding reception and our guests were just gushing over how much they loved it and felt like they were right in the audience. Looking forward to watching it every year on our Anniversary and showing it to others.
Being a wedding photographer myself I have seen and worked with countless videographers…. One being Stillwater. We were pretty picky (as you could have guessed) with the people and product we wanted to capture our day. Stillwater was the ONLY vendor we knew that we wanted for sure. We contacted them day after we got engaged on the drive up to our engagement party.
Simply said: perfect. They captured our wedding in an incredibly beautiful way, were a joy to work with, and extremely professional. We could not have had a better way to invest in our memories than with Stillwater.
And to push you over the edge, not only did we love it, but almost every single friend we’ve seen has coo’ed over it, shown it to friends…even co-workers, haha. They are AMAZING!
Can’t give them a high enough rating, but suffice to say there wasn’t a moment left un-captured, and enhanced, from the whole wedding.
* Note from Zachariah – This is the first wedding that we shot as Stillwater Cinematography in 2010… *
Everything about Zachariah and his team is amazing. My husband and I at the very last minute (like a week before the wedding) decided to hire Zachariah and from that moment on he was spectacular. He emailed me right away to set up a time to meet with us so that he could get a feel for who we are as a couple. Now this was no easy task since we were having a destination wedding and wouldnt be in the area until the Thursday before. But he met with us that night and then ran all over downtown SLO to help us find umbrellas in case there was rain. From that point on he was completely involved with everything. He made contact with our amazing photographer (Ashley Blake) and our DJ – Ryan from Kramer Entertainment and he really did everything he could to make sure he was ready for our big day. And let me tell you I cry every time I watch our video. It is so amazing and we have received nothing but compliments. We were lucky to have them and you will be to! Book them now!
