Book review: Once Upon a Quinceanera

Book review of, Once upon a Quinceanera by Julia Alvarez. It was not so much about the celebration itself, but more of an examination of the issues adolescent girls face in the US in general, compounded by the additional issues particular to young Latinas.

Misty and Scott’s Wedding

Misty and Scott were wed this weekend on the beach in Port Aransas, Texas.  The weather was perfect, the couple was easy-going and very obviously deeply in-love, the food was awesome–in short, it was beautiful.

Even though, as videographers, we don’t usually get to know the couples too personally, often there are moments on the wedding day that allow us a little peek into their personalities.  From Scott tearing up at the thought (let alone his first glimse) of his bride, to Misty completely blowing off the fact that her maid-of-honor spilled a cup of red punch on her train right before the wedding, it was obvious that this was an especially cool couple.  (The maid of honor burst into tears when she realized what she had done, but Misty just kept hugging her and telling her it was okay.  And she meant it.)

It was a great day–a great couple with a great wedding.

Check out Scott and Misty’s same-day edit  we showed at their reception.



JR & Gisel Ochoa Wedding

Well we did it… we completed a same day edit this weekend. It was for the JR & Gisel Ochoa wedding in Kingsville, Texas. We shot the wedding with a PD-170 and and another Sony 2100. Once we setup at the reception we continued to video all the major events with the two camera setup. When not shooting camera two I was in front of the laptop working away. We edited this on on Sony Vegas non leaner editing software. We ran a bit late, but the family really loved the edit. Check wedding video here.

It has been a year, so it was time to upgrade the studio’s editing software. We have been using Vegas Video for the last 7 years and we decided to stick with it.
