James Burkart, Filmmaker and Owner

After having established Burkart Studios in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2005, I quickly realized that producing wedding films was my calling. Over the years I've worked to develop my story-telling skills, made many friends in the wedding industry, and recently become a new father!

I have assembled a team of creative and passionate story-tellers to help me produce our wedding films, and I'd love for you to meet them!


Jeremiah Williams, Cinematographer and Story-Teller

I joined Burkart Studios hoping to learn a little bit more about cinematography and the power of editing, but what I actually took back was more than words can describe.

Throughout the years I've helped in the creation of many different couples’ wedding films, feeling a personal connection with them each time I saw a bride and groom walking down the aisle together, hand in hand. Each project has great importance to me. This is not a repetitive job, instead, a career in which I get to hear stories and witness human experiences, of which are the most important aspect of being alive. I couldn't ask for a better job. I get to tell stories through film for a living.

Braith Miller, Cinematographer

When I first started making wedding films years ago I was nervous as I had never attended a wedding prior. I didn’t know what to expect, I already had a passion for telling stories through film but after I saw the genuine joy in the couple’s faces in front of the crowd of people they loved as they were pronounced man and wife I knew this was going to be a great experience.

It’s such a pleasure to help in capturing these magical days and creating a film that I know our clients will cherish forever.
