About a month ago, we commissioned NR3 Video productions to create a promo video of our company. After a lot of planning, we decided to film it at the Salton Sea.  It was a long day of shooting but as you can see above…they did a fantastic job! We were so thrilled with their hard work on this and we can not thank them enough!

John and Norma- We love you guys and keep up the awesome work!

NEW GALLERY | wedding

Wow…it has been over a year since we last updated our portfolio on our website! Life just gets so busy and things get put on the back burner! So we are proud to announce our first new gallery titled “Sarah”. We will be adding new galleries shortly but this is a start!


DQ QUIKEYS | Resources

So this is long overdue but we’ve been asked many a times what we use for our album design as well as for our workflow.  The secret (well, not much longer! :) ) is DQ Quikeys.  With this valuable tool we are able to process our files in an efficient manner with just a keystroke or two.  I’m especially in love with the album design capabilities.  Since we love to design all our albums free hand (no templates), I can not express enough how amazingly easy, intuitive and FAST it is to design a page spread using DQ Quikeys.  Be sure to check out all the details at!

A before and after of one of the actions using DQ Quikeys:

before OOC (out of camera)

after using DQ Hard Edge with opacity taken down a bit

Before (OOC) and After using a combination of Soft Color, DQ Cream and DQ Overlay. Finished off with Auto Vignette and some dodging and burning

Here are some sample album pages with some details from 2 weddings. With Quikeys, image placement, resizing and alignment is simple pimple! seriously….if you don’t have DQ Quikeyes already, you need to get it!!!


To the family of Priscilla Jingco…words can not express our sorrow for your loss.  We feel blessed to have known her even for a short while.  May she rest in peace.
