About Us

Baby Blue Film is a reoccurring Award Winning Wedding Cinematography & Photography Company (“Best of the Knot 2016-2018” and Wedding Wire’s “Couples’ Choice Award 2016-2018”).  We are a team of filmmakers & photographers that produce highly stylized imagery for unique couples in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tampa Bay Area, Destination & Beyond. We are located in San Francisco and Sarasota, FL but we are available for worldwide travel.

When you hire us for both photo and video you will be guaranteed a hassle free  day of shooting with our in house team of photographers and videographers.  Since we are all on the same team, we have it down to a science and there is no stepping on each others toes to get that perfect shot, plus all of your imagery will be cohesive and have that same gorgeous look across the board!

We bring a refreshing and artistic approach to our work and we are known for our landscapes and our focus on nature.  Our cinematography style can best be described as a high production value music video with a cinematic ceremony and a hype reception.

Music is at the forefront of what we do.  If you watch our films and can’t quite pin point why you loved them so much or why they gave you that magical feeling that you wanted to revisit again and again, it was because you liked our taste in music and how each cut was placed perfectly on the beat.  We dig and dig for hours and hours to find that perfect track that will make our footage sing and soar off into the sunset and when you couple that with state of the art footage and a master editor, it’s a home run every time.

Unlike our competition, we do not open our films with a speech because that never made sense to us.  Why start with a clip from the end of the night? Why force the audience to be dragged through some time warp when you can just go in chronological order and properly tell the story from beginning to end?  These are the questions we asked ourselves when we started the business. 

We are a 4K Resolution Production Company which means our image quality is twice as good as our competition and we hope that you can see the difference in the color and clarity of our films and our photographs.  We are camera nerds and we spend our money on the best gear on the planet in order to stay ahead of the curve.  By shooting and delivering video in 4K, we guarantee that your wedding film will look stunning and have that modern feel even ten years down the road. 

At the core we are a husband and wife team and we have been passionate about telling cinematic love stories since we started planning our own San Francisco Wedding in 2013 and our love for the industry has grown with each film that we produce. Wilson McCourtney comes from a family of photographers & filmmakers and was pretty much born with a camera in his hand. Upon finishing college and working on his own feature documentary, he discovered his talent for crafting unique and vibrant wedding films that fulfill his creative spirit and make our clients happy. Wilson is the Owner, one of the Lead Cinematographers and the only Lead Editor.  Silvana McCourtney is the Co-Owner and also the head of Marketing and Client Relations. Our Northern California team also includes Lead Cinematographer Woo Nguyen and our Gulf Coast Florida team also includes Lead Cinematographer Damian Santos and Lead Photographer Joe Siciliano all of whom are featured below.

We have a 3 year old boy named Nico Ocean and a new born baby boy named Santiago Storm.  We are grateful to be able to split our time between our hometown of Sarasota, FL and San Francisco where we have been the last ten years.  We enjoy all outdoor adventures, traveling the world to go scuba diving, watching nature documentaries, gardening and finding new restaurants that peek our interest. We are environmentalists and wildlife conservationists at heart. We love being in the water and we have dedicated our life to protecting the ocean in order to ensure that our kids grow up snorkeling and scuba diving with a vast array of beautiful marine life.  We are inspired by environmental filmmakers and we support all causes related to protecting Mother Earth.
