One of the significant draws to Santa Rosa for weddings is its location. It is situated in the heart of the Sonoma wine country, which offers an incredible backdrop for a wedding celebration. There are many excellent wineries that provide stunning views of the surrounding hills and vineyards, as well as tastings of local wines. With many accommodation options for guests and easy access to the San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Rosa is an excellent location for a wedding celebration that offers a perfect blend of urban sophistication and relaxed countryside charm.

“Nile was our videographer for our Mendocino wedding and did an amazing job capturing the event. Nile met with us early on in the process and walked us through his style and vision for capturing the event while also incorporating all of our feedback and goals for the video footage. We really enjoyed Nile’s vibe and he made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. The end result was beautiful – we felt like we were right back there on our magical wedding day and also got to see many extra details that we didn’t get to fully experience during the chaos of the day, especially the heartfelt video messages from our best friends. We would highly recommend working with Nile for any event!!”

“Nile was really thorough and a joy to work with for our wedding in September. He met with us beforehand and went over every detail and gave his advice based on what we were considering. He then also arrived at our venue early to scout the best places and went above and beyond to help us with everything and prepare with us all the timeline and photo details beforehand. We also really appreciated how calm and unrushed everything felt while getting our photos done, he made it a really enjoyable and stress-free experience. The pictures came out beautifully – our venue was heavily shaded in the redwoods forest so not necessarily the easiest to capture, but he did so great! We are so happy we had him document our wedding and capture a piece of our magical day.”

Mendocino Photo and Video was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Nile took the time to get to know us as a couple, gave us great feedback along the way, and helped us come up with a game plan to capture our wedding where we could fully enjoy our day worry-free. We had so much going on at our wedding, and Nile was able to capture it all so beautifully and put together an incredible teaser and highlights video. He has an immense talent for cinematography and video editing and his work wonderfully brought out all the rich emotions during our wedding and told such a captivating story. Can’t recommend enough!!!

“Nile at Mendocino Photo was amazing! The videos we received were perfect and something my wife and I will cherish for a lifetime. The artistry of the angles and shots are second to none. He was able to capture words for our friends and family to interlace them with the video which was very special. Nile was very accommodating and understanding to our crazy schedule and requests we made both before and after the wedding. I would very highly recommend using Mendocino Photo & Video. You will not regret it.”

I had the privilege to work alongside Mendocino Photo & Video as an officiant. Immediately, there was something unique and special about Nile’s approach. He managed to manage the shots ensuring his ability to capture the perfect moments while not disrupting the flow of the service and the natural interactions of the couple and guests. This created a level of authenticity that seems to be missing from most wedding videos with the high quality scenes you would expect from a professional videographer. The final product was an absolute masterpiece brimming with the artistry of story telling and accurately capturing the joy and excitement of the special day. I couldn’t Mendocino Photo & Video (MPV) more although they really should be considered the MVP for any wedding.

From our very first call, Nile was keenly interested in our vision and started figuring out how to make it come alive. He communicated clearly and consistently with us throughout the process, demonstrated his breadth of experience, answered our many questions, and was generous, flexible, and good-humored.

When reviewing other videographers, we watched example wedding videos that felt rather strung together and less connected. We chose Mendocino Photo & Video as our wedding videographer because their portfolio displays well-crafted videos that have more of a narrative.

We’re very happy with our decision and we love the videos that Nile and his team produced. His skill with piloting drones is also quite impressive. We highly recommend Mendocino Photo & Video.

Nile was very professional and responsive—always willing to answer any questions and even meets with you before your wedding day to get to know you as a couple. He was very creative and “on-it” on the day of our wedding, capturing incredible content that I wasn’t even aware of! Our highlights video captured the day perfectly—I can’t stop watching it and reliving the moment!

“Nile made our special day a fairy tale. He met with us prior to the wedding to get to know us, who we are as individuals and who we are as a couple. He did that so he could get a glimpse of what we would like and see our day through our eyes and I believe that is one of the reasons he did such a great job. He did a phenomenal job at our wedding and after. He is very professional but also kind and it shows through his work. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer/videographer. I will be seeking him out for future photo/video ideas.”

“Nile Sprague the videographer and photographer is absolutely amazing down to every detail. He listens to make note of what your wanting for your desired wedding. He is kind and his work left me and my husband speechless. Would pick him over and over again! ❤️❤️❤️”

“I was blown away by how Nile was able to capture the beauty, spirit, joy, humor and FUN of my daughter’s wedding. Words hardly do his work justice — here is the link so you can see for yourself. On top of his artistry, he’s just a really cool, chill guy who brought a sense of calm and fun to his work (which rubbed off on the nervous bride and groom). It’s not possible to recommend someone more highly than I recommend Nile Sprague.”
