I just finished putting together another little Photostory3 vid for a wedding I shot last week in Mexico. It's a pretty big file, but if you feel like checking it out, it's HERE

The non-vid version of the photos are HERE for those who don't have the patience to wait for the vid to download.

For those who don't care about wedding photos, you can click HERE and watch a really funny (albeit somewhat offensive) video clip from the movie The 40 Year-Old Virgin.

You've been able to document so many special moments in their lives and you've done it with such beauty and class each time. They are so lucky to have a friend in you. This is wonderful and the music is perfect (as always). What's it like to be someones own personal paparazzi? ;-)

And should I ask about the duck?? :-D

love, love, love it! i've watched it a half dozen times today...it's just so beautiful. you done good :)

;) you already know my opinion..

Down on my hands and knees slowly backing out the door bowing.. I'm not worthy.. I'm not worthy!! ;-)

erm.. i've been wondering tho, if you could possibly hook me up with that duck.. seems like it had some smooth skills ~grins~

My favorite photo (besides the one where the bride has the star cowboy hat on with the little girl) is the one with the garbage can. Is there something wrong with me?

They are all great but you already know that.

I'm still waiting on the music to make my wedding montage.

Priceless indeed...in fact - free :)

Arlene and George are good friends so I didn't charge them for the photos. I'm not complaining though, because it did afford me the opportunity to spend four days after the wedding in San Jose del Cabo :D

@Jen - best you just pretend you never saw the duck.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I'll save some and mail it to you. Just send me your address.

Holy Schmokes, Pedro - the video and the album both are absolutely top notch! The best, most professional looking wedding photography I have ever seen! Seriously! I was a little disappointed to not see anyone with fishing line tightly wrapped around their face, but you did have a duck, so I won't deduct points. :)

Just amazing.

It doesn't say what you do for a living in your profile. After watching that video I'm assuming you're a professional wedding photographer. If you're not, you should be. That video/photos were completely off the scale of anything I've seen before.

WOW!

Peter, I am in awe.

That was one of the most moving collection of images I have seen. The emotions you captured are without a doubt, some of the best I have seen. The whole first segment/song collection is perfect. The angles, the eye directions, the dof and toning are absolutely breathtaking.
Arlene & George are blessed beyond words for what you accomplished.

Take a bow Peter. It is well deserved!

Wow!!! VERY nice! Beautiful couple. A true inspiration! I have my first wedding in 12 years next weekend, and this really inspires me for this one. I really like the one almost directly above her with her dress spread out on the floor. Great choice of music as usual with your montages. Was that flamenco at the end Steve Stevens by chance? I can't remember where I heard it before. Great work as usual.
10/14/2005 02:10:40 PM · #16
Those were just beautiful images! I liked the music and the feeling of the video. They are luck to have such a great friend! Probably the best of wedding shots I have seen. I have done a bunch myself and am humbled!
Its tough to critique your own work, but you must be proud! They will be awestruck.

OMG Pedro!!

I want to get married again just to take you as a photographer!! =)

Don't you have an available friend there?? LOL

No, seriously, AMAZING work!!! Love it!! Congrats!!

That was excellent. I too loved the garbage can shot, but also the bride on the couch was excellent. The lighting on each shot was great -- how did you do it? I loved your choice of background for every single shot as well. Nice mix of color and B&W. The DOF on the close groom, distant bride and close bride distant groom were compelling. The memories were truly captured. Very nicely done.

Use this video as your portfolio and you can get a PAYING job for anyone's wedding.

Beautiful and moving "video"!

2 questions:

What is the song that is in the "middle"?? I really like that.

Can that video be played on a home theatre system DVD player(TV), or only on a computer?

Sheesh I agree well over 200%
"an ok job"???
Lordy be... Pedro...

Oh hey... when you let us see these, please give us the song list too :)

Thanks, you guys. Nice thing to wake up to on a snowy monday morning :)

@Lilia - The Bride's brothers (the groomsmen) are all unmarried, but have girlfriends, so you've still got a shot. Torreon's a bit of a hike from Mexico City though. ;)

The middle song is Better Together by Jack Johnson. They had never heard it before the vid, but there's a bit of a story behind why I used it, and as it happens they loved it. The first one is My One and Only Love by Sting (hard to go wrong with Sting for wedding stuff), and the last one was called Barcelona Nights by the Gypsy Kings. We danced to the Gypsy Kings for most of the night, so I had to include one of those :)

@hgpayne - I usually do shoot weddings for money (I think i'll do 6 this year and have as many booked for next year already). These two are good friends, so I didn't feel right charging them. I don't want to make photography my job though. I love it too much. Nor do I want weddings to be my staple. I've only got one more this year (saturday) and I'm looking forward to the break.

@Linda - I used Photostory3 for this version, which doesn't make DVD compatible files (unless you have a DVD player that plays MPEG4, and as far as I know Phillips is the only one that manufactures those). I also made one with ProShow Gold (same as this but longer) that has DVD playback. It's way better quality too. The only drawback is it needs a viewer to decode it, and for newer computer users that can be an issue so I went with the one that most people can view on the web with fewest hassles.

alright now I gotta go to my real job.

have a great day, y'all. thanks again.
