Northern California Wedding

Hi, we’re Ryland & Sarah Zweifel

Ryland Zweifel

I'm the lead cinematographer here at Zweifel Studios! Over the past 10 years I’ve been compelled by the power of Story. I’ve made films about people, businesses, surfing, lifestyle - everything. But bearing witness to weddings - major milestones in the lives of others - are uniquely vulnerable and joyful occasions. These films inherently hold deep meaning and are often looked at for the rest of peoples lives - giving me a sense of responsibility to do my best each and every time. I think this is what makes weddings stand out to me and why I find such purpose in them.

Sarah Zweifel

Hi, I'm Sarah! I am proud to bring a background in hospitality to Zweifel Studios. Whether as a sommelier in San Francisco or as a winery events captain, I know my way around a curated good time!

With an appreciation for people and story, an eye for detail and a flair for the creative, I absolutely love to learn about couples and document their wedding days, creating bespoke films they'll treasure for years to come. 

I truly believe that one of the greatest things you can do with your time on Earth is to love wholly. I can't wait to hear your story of love and help you capture it.  

Our story

Weddings are in the air for us, too! On a hike in the Swiss Alps last summer, Ryland surprised Sarah with a proposal on a mountaintop (not too shabby, huh?). We love being outside and doing things that make us feel alive: creativity, flexibility and family are at the heart of all that we do. We have a love for adventure, a passion for travel and telling stories authentically and thoughtfully. We never imagined that filming one wedding would lead to so many more couples trusting us with their memories. We're so glad that it did.
