JUAN: Hello! We’re Juan Luis and Mary Paz, and we got married some month ago.
MARY: And we just saw our wedding video [laughs].
JUAN: And, about the video, we believe it’s really worth it because you can see things in a different way, it’s another point of view, you see things you didn’t see at the ceremony… It’s like reviving those moments, unlike a photo where you capture a moment.
MARY: But you can’t see the emotions-
JUAN: It doesn’t give you the idea of-
MARY: …The people’s feelings, the movement, the people talking… The warmth of seeing the moment as it was the real thing, how it happened, having the opportunity of seeing it from outside. Because when you’re living it it’s like being in a bubble and not realizing what’s happening, the emotionsn of your family, I saw my father ultra-excited in the video and that day I didn’t realize. That emotion…
JUAN: Our parents´ emotions, the people’s emotion is seen in a much more real way and in fact we’ve seen since October I seen the video again and I got emotions-
JUAN: …That I hadn’t felt since the wedding. Well, people may think it’s annoying, having two people behind you.
MARY: Yeah, having two people recording you it’s an intimidating concept. But I had a great time and I suggest that everyone looks for someone that can understand them. For someone they have afeeling. But I didn’t notice I was being recorded at any point, never had that feel, I never was uncomfortable. I never had to care for where the camera men were. Never had, as everything was really easy.
JUAN: I’m a person that doesn’t specially enjoy recordings and videos, never liked them that much. And in fact, at the start you can be a little afraid or be a shamed of it, everyone’s the way they are, but at no moment I felt intimidated nor ashamed, everything felt natural and, as Mary Paz says, hire people that you can place your trust in and helps you like Sergio and Luz helped us. It was an experience- I personally recommend them a lot. And it’s another way of seeing things and it steps out of the commonality of photos. It may not be better but it’s different, a different way of reliving your wedding and for me, it was worth it.
MARY: And what it leaves you. At the end of the day, as time passes, that’s what you’re left with. Being able to relive that day watching the videos, not just the photos.
JUAN: Yeah, it’s a much richer way of remembering it. Photos and video complement each other but, in my case, the video seems like a step ahead, much more complete. You see more of the wedding.
MARY: You see the emotion. Well, maybe it’s just me but you see emotions… I don’t know, you see kids playing, some complicity…
