Southern California, Italy
We’re Michael and Sarah, owners of Cello Films and a married couple who divide our time between Los Angeles, California and Rome, Italy. Before we started Cello Films, we worked for fifteen years as a non-fiction and documentary producer (Sarah) and editor/cinematographer (Michael). Our work has been featured on CBS, NBC, National Geographic, Bravo, A+E, Discovery, MTV, VH1, and Facebook, among others. After having our own destination wedding and the birth of our son, we pivoted to build a family business. We even named our company after our son's nickname (“Cello”). If there’s one thing we learned from working in Hollywood and living in Italy, it’s how to tell stories that are visually spectacular while being incredibly romantic. At Cello Films, our aesthetic is heavily influenced by our documentary background. Our goal is to capture the story of your wedding day, with image composition and lighting that reflects our love of Italian style and cinema. We aim to create a timeless film that takes all your best memories of your wedding day and transforms them into your own personal documentary. We film weddings all around the world, from our home in Los Angeles to the Italian countryside. Whatever the type or size of your wedding, let us tell your story.
