One Bride Guide’s Cover by Deux-Bohème

In March of this year we were happy to find out that our good friends Leslie & Ryan at Deux Bohème were chosen to shoot the cover of the One Bride Guide. The One is a bridal guide that is published out of our home town, Corpus Christi, Texas.

We first met the Deux team back in 2008 after working a wedding with Ryan’s father, Raymond Gray of Gray Photography.  We have always been amazed at Deux-Bohème’s work and creativity.  Over the last few years we had the opportunity to have mutual clients.  These mutual clients have enjoyed their work as much as we have enjoined working with them.

We liked their work so much we had them shoot our family photos last year.

Pre Photo Shoot

Aside from our wedding, Kendra and I have not had a lot of professional photo shoots.  We were amazed to the attention to detail and the creativity that came from the Deux.  Leslie was willing to come into our home and search our closets from top to bottom to find our family’s wardrobe.  When one item was still needed, it was off to Target to find it.  We just would have never thought someone would take so much time to make sure things were put together right.

The Photo Shoot

When we showed up to our first location they were there with props and ideas.  We had to do little more than just sit there and be ourselves.  It was simply that easy.

Post Photo Shoot

We have learned that the term “ACTIONS’ is a popular tool in the Photoshop world.  We also learned that “ACTIONS” is a four letter word to Leslie & Ryan.  Actions is the one size fits all approach to editing a batch of photos.  This achieves good results, but not perfect ones.  Every image – every detail! is how these two approach the post photo session work.

The One Bride Guide Photo Shoot For The Cover

We met up with Leslie & Ryan at the beach on April 3, 2011.  They had just completed hair and makeup at the clients’ home.  Megan with Chaos Makeup made it out to the beach to put on the finishing touches.  She did another amazing job for this shoot.  Also working with Megan was Yvonne Vaiz with Blue Neptune Hair.

The models were wonderful, as expected from the two previous sessions including their wedding and a trash the dress session.  Leslie had ropes of streamers, a guitar, and a freshly made custom dress for Katlin to wear.  This was our second project to work on where Leslie had custom built the dress.  To see her amazing work click over to this link on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uc-TlqDQII.

The Behind The Scenes Video

We would also like to thank Monica McLeod Sawyer from The One Bride Guide for thinking of us when it came to shooting the behind the scenes video for this summers cover.  We enjoyed the shoot very much. We have have been an advertiser since the 2nd issue and find it to be a wealth of information for newly engaged couples.  So to Monica and her crew at The One Bride Guide, thanks for providing such a great publication, and keep up the good work.

Until next time,

Derrick & Kendra Perrin

Big Box Pro, Corpus Christi Wedding Videographer

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas break. Spring wedding planning is now in full effect. When planning that perfect wedding remember to document it well.

There are a few ways to document your wedding day. For years hiring a professional photographer was the standard, but these days there is a shift to video, or using a videographer. Sometimes people come up to us at the wedding fair and ask, “What is a videographer?” A videographer is one who captures a story on video. A videographer is very similar to a photographer, but in place of still photos, we use motion video and sound to develop the story. When you add the element of sound your wedding comes to life.

Both mediums have a very unique benefits. We encourage you to hire both. Below is a sample of a wedding highlight clip by Big Box Pro Wedding Video:
[vimeo 7980367]
This video was shot this past November at Nolte Farms, in Seguin, Texas. While watching the exchange of vows, ask yourself how a photo could capture that emotion.

In planning for a wedding video, many people think they can do it themselves or hire an amateur. This is where some go wrong. When hiring a professional wedding vendor you get the expertise that comes along with someone who has been there and done it before. Professional wedding vendors will have demo products so you can see what you are purchasing. Another major difference is the contract. If you hire a professional you will be getting a contract for the services and or products you are buying.

Enjoy, and good luck to all you newlyweds couples out there,

Wedding video in Brownsville, Texas

On November 29, 2008 we headed south for Brownsville, Texas.  We were hired to videotape the wedding of Rene C. Casares and Valerie A. Vasquez.  They had a beautiful wedding at the Valley Baptist Medical Center Chapel in Brownsville, Texas.  There wedding was at 1 p.m. so we had a nice break between the wedding and reception that started at 6 in Harlingen.

The photographer for the event was Fonzie Munoz Photography You should check out his site when you have some time.  www.fonziemunozphotography.com

The wedding was interesting to say the least.  It was not the couple or the guest but the actual location.  In Brownsville tucked away in the back of the Valley Baptist Medical center is a little chapel that is very nice.  The chapel is now owned by the Baptist but walking in you would think it part of the Diocese of Brownsville. To top it off the service was conducted by a Jewish Rabbi.  It ended up being a very nice service.  The highlight of the wedding ceremony was the original wedding vows the bride and groom shared.

All in all it was a beautiful event.  To see for yourself check out the video link here


Take care
