meet Tony Sakiri
Tony started his film making journey while he was in college. Eight years ago, he stumbled upon an ad on facebook looking for a second shooter for a wedding, and decided it sounded way better than his job at Starbucks. Little did he know that he would fall in love with filming weddings and shoot over one hundred of them!
Throughout his film making career, he has worked on several short films, commercial projects, documentaries, and features. Yet he ended up finding something special about weddings.
Tony was so in demand for his skill and personality while shooting for other companies that he would frequently shoot back to back weddings. Sometimes, four in a row. What he loved most about shooting weddings was the close connections that he would form with his couples. He made them smile, laugh, and enjoy their day. A skill that is very valuable considering all of the stressors of a wedding day. On top of getting amazing shots, he would form a friendship with his couples.
In 2022, Tony shot over 80 weddings for other companies! Although he loved what he did, he quickly became exhausted. That’s why he started Sakiri Wedding Films. So that he could focus his efforts and give 100% of himself to 25 couples per year rather than work himself to the point of exhaustion with 80.
Two things are certain about Tony.
- He is very passionate about shooting weddings.
- His biology degree is gathering dust on his wall.

Yes! We use audio recorders and Lavalier microphones to capture the ceremony along with the speeches so that every sounds as amazing as it looks.
Oh… I have so many lame dad jokes. Ask me about the Spanish magician one, that’s a crowd favorite.
