The Pinwheel Film Co. family is a diverse collective of artisan storytellers who have a love for film and film for love. At the helm of this cinematic endeavor are Alonso & Elsie, a husband and wife super-duo who ironically enough, found love through film when they met on an indie film set. 🙂
Outside of Pinwheel, Alonso is also an acclaimed local Director, who has produced and directed multiple, award-winning commercials for internationally-know brands like Nike, Hilton and Magnavox through our commercial/advertising sister company, Luminary Visuals, bringing a high end, storytelling touch to Pinwheel that is rarely seen in the wedding cinematography realm.
Elsie, having been extensively involved in the wedding industry for almost a decade now, handles our client experiences, making sure that every meticulous detail of the needs of each of our clients are met day in and day out. She also runs the popular Photo Booth company, Shutterbarn where the most fun moments of the night, can be captured and shared instantly.
With the advancement of technology, even a phone could document your special moments. But it’s the innovation, care & attention to detail that will tell your story in a timeless way.
We don’t believe in cookie cutter. We believe in personalizing a couple’s story & telling that story through a cinematic lens.
With our background in film production and both fiction & non-fiction documentary storytelling, our cinematography surpasses the standard high contrast, high saturation “I set my camera on auto” look. Every frame is a painting and requires custom cinematography techniques to take the moment to the next level.
No one likes to brag. But you have to admit that trophies are a classier way to do so.
ISO, Shutter speeds, Aperture, picture profiles, codecs, color grading. Let us worry about these things. We are certified technical geeks, and we love every iota of it.
“It really was a pleasure to work with the Pinwheel team. My wedding film came out wonderful. I truly recommend them for your wedding/event; you are not going to be disappointed. They were also very flexible. I felt like our opinion was the most important thing for them.
“Alonso from Pinwheel was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was on time, very professional and notified us before he left for the night. I would highly recommend him and his company if you are looking for a stress-free wedding day. We would use them again in a heart beat.”
“These guys are the best around and believe me I looked everywhere. They are professional, artistic and have great ideas. You will be so happy with your wedding video if you use them. It is something to cherish forever and they treat it that way. Love my wedding video!!!”
“Very professional, totally unobtrusive wedding cinematography! They listened to our needs/requests and were very accommodating. We booked them very late in the game and had very patient and pleasant interactions with the whole team.”
