Portrait of Gabriela Villegas, Wedding Videographer at Adventure Photos

Where are you from?

I’m from Guadalajara Jalisco, tierra del mariachi, tequila and tortas ahogadas.

How did you get started as a Videographer?

I actually started as a photographer back in 2010, and then a friend of mine introduced me to video and motion graphics and I absolutely loved it.

How long have you been a Videographer for?

I´ve been doing this for about 3 years.

What is the most rewarding part of being a videographer?

 It´s really satisfying when people come to us at the end of the events and thank us with a big hug and smile on their faces, but also when reading the comments about their experience with us.

What does videography mean to you?

For me, it’s like a game where you’re able to tell a single story in so many different ways. Being a wedding videographer has taught me to be at the right place at the right time.

What is your favorite style of videography?

I love documental/musical videography.

What is your favourite wedding video and why?

I loved shooting Lauren & Luke’s wedding because it was located in Cozumel and I just loved the material we got there.

Where is your favorite location to video?

I love nature, and I´m always willing to jump into the water to do some underwater shoots!

What is your preferred piece of equipment?

I love the 35 mm & 85 mm lenses

What is your favorite part about working with Adventure Photos?

Working at Adventure Photos has pushed me in a way no other place has. It’s rewarding to me to see how much I’ve learned working here.

What was the most memorable wedding you have captured?

I loved working with Abas & Stephanie, they were such a beautiful couple and everything went just fine. Most recently I worked with Alexa & Brian and had so much fun doing their shoot in the spa!

How did you begin working with Adventure Photos?

A friend of mine referred me.

How do you make clients less nervous during a shoot?

I help clients by distracting them and asking them questions about themselves, such as how they met or what they love most about their partner. Making them dance or walk is another way to get them to relax.

If you could give advice to clients looking to book a wedding video shoot, what would it be?

I’d say to just be natural and enjoy your moment because that’s what we aim to capture with video.
