November 30, 2009 - We are doing lots of transfers for Christmas gifts, especially from our friends in Atlanta. We thank you for supporting our business. We have also been doing family portraits during the Thanksgiving weekend. I t's beginning to feel like Christmas around here. "The Nutcracker" is this weekend and our Church Play that I helped write and direct is the next weekend. We have so much going on, but we still have time for you. So, give us a call , if we can help you with your Christmas projects.

 

October 29, 2009 - How are you dealing with this wet weather and this slow economy? Christmas will be here before you know it. I suspect people will be more thoughtful with their Christmas gifts this year. Give a gift that will last in their memory forever. Pictures and videos are gifts they will never forget. I got a new catalogue from my photography lab. They had some cute gift ideas in it. They had pewter and porcelain ornaments with pictures of children or couples. They had pewter key chain and money clips with photos of families and pets. A Mirror compact and business card holder with a portrait on the top. They even had a 12"x16" cutting board with a portrait on it. They also had sets of hardboard coasters and tumbled stone coasters with holders. It gave me some good ideas. Some of my family are hard to buy for, because my Mother has everything she could ever want. I bet yours does too. It has rained too much to get very many outdoor photography sessions, but we have a nice studio with an assortment of backdrops and props. Call me, Debbie, today and we will get you scheduled and ready for Christmas. Our studio is one mile North of I30. Go one mile past Applebee's and we are on the left. We are on the corner of Cleer Creek and Summerhill Road. 903-223-5600

 

September 29, 2009- How is the economy effecting your life? If you have recently been layed off and have a Senior who needs Senior portraits, give us a call. Maybe we can help. If we all pull together during these tough times, who knows we may just survive. I pray that the Lord will bless you and your family and all of our communities. We visited with a former Bride & Groom this weekend. They had lots of kind things to say about their Wedding video and photography by Video Perfection & Photography. We will have their video on the testimonial page very soon. Shnae, the groom, works at Minton's Sportsplex and has invited me to come get in shape. I need to take him up on the offer. His bride, Robin, is a teacher/coach at Texas Middle School. We really enjoyed our visit with them. Don't forget its time to start thinking photos for Christmas gifts and cards. Call today and get on our schedule in October and November.

June 11, 2009- Weddings and Dance Recitals!!! We are so busy, but having a wonderful time at all of the events. We have 10 new backdrops and lots of new props. Now is the time to schedule your children and family photo sessions for this summer. We have a really cool surprise prop on order for infant and children. We hope it will be here in 2 weeks and we will put photos on the website as soon as possible. God has really been blessing our business and family and we pray that he does the same for yours.

January 7, 2009 - Happy New Year to all of our old and new friends. Love is in the air at Video Perfection and Photography. We attended a beautiful Wedding at Elk Meadow Game Ranch in New Boston, TX for Daniel and Catherine. If you have been looking for a beautiful , romantic, rustic location by the water, this is the place. Danny Elkins is the owner and Randy Mc Millan is the Ranch Manager. Check out our Wedding page for video highlights and the portraits page for their Wedding photos. We should have them ready for viewing Friday. If you are engaged to be married in 2009, be sure and attend the Bridal Fair at Central Mall in Texarkana on Jan. 31, 2009. We will see you there.

 

November 26, 2008 - Mistle Fair was great this past weekend. We met lots of new people and saw old friends as well. We ate too much candy and the best strawberry nut bread made by the Junior League Ladies. We are getting geared up for the Christmas Holiday, with a Double Dollars Gift Certificate. You can purchase up to a $500 Gift Certificate and receive Double the amount!! Call our office at 903-223-5600 for more information. This would be a great gift for a bride, Senior or Family. It can be used for Video or Photography. Thanks and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

 

November 14, 2008 - We had such a great time this past weekend at Missy Moore and Chad Powell's Wedding. It was so elegant and beautiful. They were married at Calvary Tabernacle in Queen City, TX. Queen City Floral did the flowers, and as you can see in the portrait above they flowers were wonderful. The Reception was at the Cabe Hall in the Regional Arts Center in downtown Texarkana, TX. Silver Spoons did the food and the Cakes. I think the Groom's cake was one of the best I have eaten. As you can imagine, I have eaten lots of Wedding Cakes. They also had an ice cream bar on the third floor of the building. Don't worry, they have an elevator. We have Missy's bridal portraits on the portrait section of our website and should have the Highlight video of their Wedding on the Wedding page tonight. Enjoy!

 

August 27, 2008-Debbie is still recovering from her shoulder surgery. Video Perfection has become the official photographer and videographer for the Texarkana Gunslingers. Bill had a great time this year at the games. The team is really good and Bill loves baseball. We did a family photo session recently for the Rick & Kim Cockrell Family. We had such a great time. Their son Ricky was leaving the next day headed to Iraq. We made an afghan of the family portrait and they are sending it to him to put on his cot. I think that is a great idea. We also put photos on tote bags and pillows. I put a photo of Ricky's dog on a tote bag. It should arrive today. I am anxious to see how it turns out. We have hired a new employee Alexandra Compton. She is a Texas High cheerleader and a really nice girl. We did a photo shoot with her last week and got some great photos for her portfolio. I hope to have them on the website soon.

July 16, 2008- Well so much has happened since we wrote on this blog. The Academy students are learning and having a great time. Quinton will be going home to Kentucky soon and we will miss him.

We had a fun Senior session with Brittany Dupree and Emily Green. We did hair and makeup and we are sure they brought every outfit they owned. We had a great time. We've known these two girls since they were babies. We hope to have some of the photos on our website soon.

Debbie had surgery two weeks ago on her left arm and is slowly recovering. We are sure she will be as good as new very soon. Thank you so much for your flowers, food and prayers.

We are running a Senior photo session special thru the end of August. Give us a call and we will get you set up for a fun time and capture some great memories.

June 10, 2008 - Boy am I tired!! We are deep in the middle of Dance Recital Season and it has been fast and furious. We have seen some really great shows this year. For great summer entertainment you should go to your local dance recitals. It's the closest thing to broadway, in my humble opinion. That doesn't mean we have forgotten about our Graduations, Proms and of course Weddings. We did Senior shoots recently with Desmond Coleman and McKenzie Coats and hope to have all of the new photos on the web site very soon. The Academy is going great. We have 3 guys who are learning a great deal about video and photography. They all think they would like to work for Video Perfection. We will see if they feel that way by the end of the Summer. We also have a Mom and daughter who are taking a private class and really enjoying learning about their camera. I hope you are having a great summer.

May 1, 2008 - Well Dance Recital Season has begun. We finished Ms Patti's DVDs for her Recital today. We video 14 dance recitals in 2 months. We also do Redwater prom and Queen City's Graduation and Project Graduation. Bill is already saying he needs a day off. Rumor has it, that I work him too hard. We have some Weddings mixed in with all these other activities. . Levi and Jordan are two Seniors we have photographed in the last week. We had a great time and you should see the pictures on our website next week. As soon as poor Bill has time. Also, next Tuesday we start our Adult photography & video classes from 6PM-8PM here at the Studio. This class will help adults with still cameras,video cameras and editing. They will use their own cameras and laptops. We have room for 2 more students, if you are interested, call 903-223-5600.

 

March 30, 2008 -We had a great time at Robin (Cook) & Shane Holland's Wedding at Prissy Chrissy Ranch last Saturday. Go to the Wedding Page and check out their Highlight video & some of their photos. We will have their album on line once it is finished. Robin and her parents Joyce & Chris Cook have been great to work with . You might go by their business Cook Boat & Marine and tell them you saw the video.

We have students applying for the Summer Academy. We are really getting excited. I love to teach and have been asked to speak to several media classes in our area. I still have former students contact me for advance about life decisions. It gives you such a warm feeling to make a difference in a young person's life. I have one grandmother, whose grandson lives in Kentucky and visits her in the summer. She has enrolled him in our Academy. What a great idea for visiting grandchildren. We are working around summer camps and family vacations. We ask that the children attend at least 8 weeks if possible.

 

March 20, 2008 - I'm and so excited. We are starting The Video Perfection Summer Academy for children ages 11-14 in June. We will be teaching on Tues, Weds, & Thurs. from 1PM to 6Pm at our studio. We will teach professional skills, videography, photography, audio and more. We are planning to have a 4 year program that will prepare them for High School, College and Church programs and opportunities. We will also work on stage presence, job appearance, customer service, and marketing. We have specialists come in and talk to the students about Sororities and Fraternities video applications and sports and cheer scholarship videos. We are only accepting 20 students and all applications and interviews must be completed before May 16, 2008. The teachers will review the applications and the students will be notified the following week if accepted. If we run out of room, we may offer an after school program. Give us a call at 903-223-5600 to schedule your interview appointment.

 

March 6, 2008 - Wedding Season is starting. We photographed a beautiful wedding in Linden,TX for K'Lynn & Wes. It was

pretty and I loved the balloons they released during their departure. I will try to get some photos on the website by this weekend.

We are taking Easter photos, Maternity photos, and College photos. That is quite a variety. Dance Recital Season is around the

corner. If you have not picked up last years DVD, now would be a good time. We edited a Country Music Demo for a

guy named Devon Johnson. My granddaughter Lacey and her boyfriend are in one of the videos. Check out Live Performance

page on our website. He is really good. When he becomes famous, you can say you saw him here first!!
