10 Questions for Dax Victorino
We love photographing weddings. Photographs document all the planning and people that made your wedding special. Photographs fail, however, to capture the voices and movement of your wedding. Sometimes you don't want to just see your wedding, you want to hear you vows and see that special moment when they pronounce you "Husband and Wife", or "Wife and Wife" Or "Husband and Husband"
One of our favorite vendors in the Tahoe area is Dax Victornio Films. Dax is a very talented film maker who brings your wedding to life with soulful videos that capture the energy, emotion and life of your wedding day in a way that still images just can't do.

We sat down with Dax to talk about his work and what makes him so amazing about what he does.
1. You and your wife are transplants to the Reno area. Tell us a little about yourselves, where you’re from and how you met.
2. Your films are so beautiful! No one else in the Reno or Tahoe area does anything like you. How did you get into cinematography?
Aww thank you guys!
3. What attracted you to start filming weddings?
We are attracted with the impact of a wedding film done right can actually enhance a married couple’s relationship and even strangers’! We made it our mission to make sure we take our couples and viewers into a cinematic journey so they can re-experience their promises to each other to carry them through the ebb and flow of marriage.
4. What common misconception about wedding cinematography do you hear most often?
That it’s the snazzier name for wedding videography and it brings to mind the horror stories of cheesy videos of the old.
5. What is the difference between a cinematographer and a videographer?
For us, in reference of film industry terms, a videographer operates a camera for the goal of coverage. A cinematographer or the director of photography by contrast, utilizes a variety of visual techniques to tell a story.
6. Besides the quality of work, what is the most important aspect in hiring a cinematographer for a wedding?
Definitely knowing if you have a chemistry with your film team. If you don’t feel like being yourself with your cinematographer, that awkwardness will show on the film.
7. When your clients book you, they are really getting something much more than just a film of their wedding. They are getting something really special, and it's unique to them. Can you describe the experience your clients have when working with you?
I think this one will be better explained by one of our brides, Chaz. Here’s her blog post: http://brylostudio.com/blog/brilliant-branding-my-videographer-gets-it/
8. Because of the amount of work you put into each wedding film, you are only able to take on 12 clients a year. If someone is on the fence about hiring you versus your average videographer what one thing should they know?
9. From your perspective, what makes your films so much better than others that are being made in this area?
10. Clients can choose to upgrade their package to an amazing heirloom that preserves not just their film, but an entire sensory experience. Can you tell people about this treasure and how you came up with it?
We wanted to go beyond giving them DVDs that would gather dusts somewhere; we want something that they’ll be proud to display on their favorite rooms and open as many times as possible. We wanted to also make it easy and fun for them to re-experience their day together, or with everyone else they love through not just sight and sounds but also through touch and smell.
