Congratulations to Yvonne and Ruben for being the lucky winners of our free Carnival Inspired Engagement Film. We have wanted to film at a carnival for the longest time. I just love the colors and lights and just the fun. Yvonne and Ruben were so much fun to work with and we loved their enthusiasm. They told me they did not like carnival rides but were willing to get on them for the sake of the film….real troopers!

Everyone at the carnival were so nice. A lot of the vendors let us ride for free and play free games in order to capture the best shots. Thanks to Moore Greater Show Carnival!

Enjoy the show and if you are interested in an engagement or save the date film please let us know! If you see a carnival in town and want to do something similar to this let us know!!!!

It always makes my day when we receive a beautiful review from our past couples after they watch their wedding film. It means so much to us that our films make such an impact on their lives. Thank You Joe & Kendra for your kind words….

“From the moment that we got engaged, there was no question as to who was going to be our wedding videographer. John had been my sister’s wedding videographer when she got married back in 2004, and we’re still captivated by her video every time we watch it. He was my first vendor that I officially booked…there was no question! Thank goodness we decided to! John was very quick to respond to any of our questions/concerns in the whole year leading up to our wedding. The fact that I was able to give monthly payments was also less stress on us. On our big day, I saw him hard at work capturing so many details, but little did I know how amazing it was going to be reflected in our wedding video. So many details that I had forgotten about were shown, and it brought tears to my eyes just how beautifully everything was presented in our final video. My husband and I will forever be grateful to John and his amazing work that he did for us.” – Kendra & Joe

Thinking of getting a bridal film to show off your beautiful wedding gown? We wanted to show off one of our latest films that we created for Sposa Mia Couture. The nice thing about this film is that is was done completely indoors keeping the dress nice and clean. We have several back drops to choose from and can even include vintage props or even your little doggy to! This is a great way of showing off your dress without the worry of getting it dirty. Please contact us at 956-686-5055 if you are interested in having a Bridal Film…..

We are totally excited to showcase this engagement film in Big Bend National Park. Victoria and Cody were so fun to work with. During this shoot we hiked 4 miles in the rugged terrain and saw a black bear in the process. But I have to say it was all worth it for this gorgeous footage.

Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
