Originally started by Alan Fitch under the name of Perspective Services, Life Events Video Production has evolved and expanded since its beginnings in 1987. Their mission, though, remains the same: preserving memories and once in a lifetime moments for current and future generations of the families and individuals they serve. Over the years, this award-winning videographer and his associates have quietly built a reputation for polished productions, effective teamwork and custom wedding and event videography that truly reflects the people they work with.
Their work has consistently received Awards of Merit in competition with other professional videographers within the Redwood Empire chapter of Professional Photographers of America, and garnered both the 1996 First Place Wedding Video and Video of the Year awards. Excerpts from their wedding productions were accepted for exhibition at the prestigious 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2004 Wedding and Event Videographers’ Association (WEVA) International Expos, and Alan was honored to serve as a Creative Excellence Judge for the 2003 WEVA International competition.
What sets Life Events Video apart is their attention to detail, their experience and dedication to improving their craft. Through continuing education under the auspices of such organizations as the Professional Videographers of the North Bay (of which they are a founding member,) the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and the Wedding and Event Videographers’ Association International (WEVA,) they constantly strive to take the quality and originality of their productions to the next higher level.
Community service is important too, and toward that end Life Events Video and its parent company Visual Story Media, LLC have produced videos for the Greater Petaluma Chapter of the American Cancer Society, C.O.T.S., Rebuilding Together and America’s Top Black Chefs Awards. In honor of his video productions of their annual Who’s Who Star Revue fund raiser, Alan was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship by the Petaluma Valley and Petaluma Sunrise Rotary Clubs.
“We have been described by our clients as imaginative, thorough and dependable. It’s also interesting to note that most of our clients are referrals from satisfied customers or from other professionals who have seen our work,” says Alan.
“We are fortunate enough to be in a profession that’s not only perfect for our blend of skills and experience, but one that also brings daily opportunities for inspiration and creativity. The possibilities are limitless.”
