Who We Are

Richard Sáenz

Lead Cinematographer

I love the art of cinema and the ability to create romantic cinematic films for my couples that will last for a lifetime. I have been filming weddings and events for nearly a decade. I am passionate about my craft and continuously push myself to be better. I have been considered the top wedding videographer in my area and been award the Hall of Fame awards with the Knot. I am truly blessed to have met so many amazing couples over the years. I am excited to capture new love stories as my journey continues. 

Here is a sample of my most recent work.

Experience Matters

Real Wedding Review About Us

“Richard and Tracy of Royal Films were so great to work with! They first of all, are just really nice people, but they also made everything so easy for us. I’m not really organized and didn’t thrive in the planning process like other brides, but that didn’t matter when working with Tracy. Everything was easy; the signing of the contract, the payments, the communication up until the wedding. Even meeting with Richard and Tracy prior to booking them was easy; they set up a meeting with us closer to our home which was so convenient. Upon meeting them and hearing them talk so passionately about what they do I knew right away I had to have them do our wedding! Day of the wedding I honestly didn’t see the film crew much, which was a good thing! They are so discreet when capturing moments, they just let it all play out naturally and catch it all on film. The finished product was a like a Hollywood production. So beautifully put together in high definition with music and the sound was amazing, I really can’t believe how perfect our movie came out. They captured every important moment from the wedding day, and the fun, goofy moments that define us as a couple in between. Some moments I got to see on the film that I didn’t get to catch the day of which was so important to me, like my nieces walking down the aisle prior to me walking down the aisle, my husband getting ready at his hotel prior to the wedding, and guests just enjoying themselves at our wedding! The highlight film I received from them was also something I’d recommend. It’s all the best moments condensed into a couple of minutes and is set to music, and you can view it shortly after your wedding, it gets you excited for the full feature you receive after! I’m so glad I had Royal Films document the events of my wedding, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. They are great people who produce great work. ”

Our Filming Style

Lifestyle Cinema

I strive to capture authentic moments without much directing. You won’t have to worry about acting or posing towards the camera but simply enjoying your wedding day and living in the moment. I film my clients  in real-life situations and capture the milestones in an artistic manner. My cinematic side comes from how I approach the day as I want you to feel like you are watching a Hollywood movie of your wedding. I accomplish this by using Hollywood approved cameras, using the same filming and editing techniques they use to produce romantic feature films. In the end I want to create a visual masterpiece of a wedding film that will be timeless. Your wedding film is the perfect keepsake of capturing your love story on the day you said “I do” so you can relive it time and time again with your family and friends.
