Meet Ken Sipes.

Kenneth Sipes Cinema

Ken is the Owner of Kenneth Sipes Cinema.  Ken got into the industry by “looking into the rabbit hole called Google and stumbled on a modern wedding film… and was hooked!”

When working as a solo entrepreneur it’s really useful to get out and socialize, and support others in the industry.

“When working as a solo entrepreneur it’s really useful to get out and socialize, and support others in the industry. ILEA is the perfect place to meet and work with like minded professionals. Every meeting I go to,  I’m looking to better myself and others around me. If I can refer a new face with an experienced pro, or develop a stronger relationship with someone who is up to something I find fascinating, my attendance is a success. Someone once told me, surround yourself with people who are at the level you are striving for, and be sure to bring others along with you and you’ll be surprised where you end up.”

We asked Ken what he thought his greatest accomplishment in his career has been.  He said, “Funny, but I feel that I do that almost every weekend by filming a couples wedding and providing them with a sort of time machine to go back in time 20, 30 maybe 40 years and relive their wedding day with family and friends at the push of a button.”

His guilty pleasure is Freestone Bakery and sitting creek side at Truett Hurst Winery in Dry Creek. In his free time, Ken loves to hike the various trails of Northern California and travel, especially to warmer climates! Ken has had the good fortune of doing many things over the years, but one of his most memorable and fun experience was flying his hot air balloon on a network TV show.  Ask him about it!
