Jose and Veronica - October 21, 2012
Surprise Proposal - Seaport Village

Whenever we have shoots we always joke around about having to play ninjas during events so that we are not seen. This was our first time having to really plan how we were not going to be obvious that we were filming what was going on.  We even joked with friends that the Mission Impossible or 007 theme song should be playing in the background especially since we had all these people wondering why we were standing behind beams and pointing our cameras directly at this couple getting their caricatures drawn.

We shoot weddings throughout the year, and it was an awesome experience to shoot what was about to happen.  Jose's surprise proposal was a success!  Congratulations and happy planning you two!  Bring out the wedding binder!!

Nico DeJesus

When someone only needs straight headshots I kind of feel bad because it's as if I'm not really doing anything. It's simple . . set up light, make sure it's in the right spot, point and shoot. Okay maybe it's not that "simple" ha ha.

These are just a couple of the headshots that I took of Nico at his studio.

Photoshoot for Baby Eve
May 26, 2012

Point and shoot and cross your fingers they don't cry. The great thing about newborns is sleep photos work awesome! When they're awake, it's unpredictable . . . hungry one sec and pooping the next. Such a hard life!

Sergio and Larisa - Wedding Highlights
Admiral Baker Golf Course - April 27, 2012

If there was ever a time to name a bride that made me laugh, Larisa would definitely be one of the top brides I'd pick.  Throughout the whole day she was constantly doing things such as making funny faces at the camera, giving a quick fist pump, and even "making out" in the photobooth with Sergio (which you can catch in the highlights video).  Congratulations to the newlyweds . . .Sergio and Larisa!

Bien and Eden - Wedding Highlights
August 20, 2005

Yes, yes that's right . . this wedding video was first shot in 2005. After years of not being given their wedding video, Eden and Bien were able to get the raw footage of their wedding day from their videographer and hand it over to us to edit. Even though p3Vision Productions was not there to share in their special day, editing and watching this sure made a feel a part of the moment.

It's not very often that I get asked to edit wedding video that I had no part in filming. In fact this is our first time ever to edit a wedding video that was shot by a completely different company that I had no ties with. BUT it can be done! I will admit though when I first saw the raw footage, the first thing I thought was HOW THE HECK AM I GOING TO EDIT THIS?! Good thing I have people I can rely on, and say please edit this 12 hour raw footage into a 2 hour DVD. I'm definitely very blessed to work with talented and creative people who amaze me every time I need them.

So . . after taking place almost 7 years ago (back when HD was not even in existence), a walk down memory lane . . Eden and Bien's Wedding Day. . .
