To be a great wedding photographer requires more than a good camera. The best photography and cinematography tells a story – the story of your moments. The photos Motion 8 captures of your engagement, wedding and important ceremonies and celebrations convey how you feel so you can relive those moments forever.
The professional Motion 8 Films crew is part of the local Sacramento Indian community, giving us a unique grasp of how to best capture your Sacramento wedding, engagement and family photos and videos. Sacramento’s seasons offer an array of opportunities to capture natural beauty in your wedding’s location. Sacramento natives know how to work with seasonal sunlight patterns, which times of day provide optimal lighting and which locations will best frame your personal style.
The best wedding photographers marry the technical skills required (from working with specialized equipment to lighting and framing) with a sense for creating and recognizing special moments. Yet even with all the best elements, the best photos and videos require expert editing to amplify color elements (which are so amazing in Indian wedding ceremonies!), soften lighting, frame the final perfect angle, and more.
We are not satisfied with just good work, and you should never settle for less than perfect for your wedding photos and videos. Every wedding is a unique, creative project. Motion 8 Films ensures that your Indian Wedding Photos and Videos express the love and joy you feel throughout your most important moments.
