About me

 

In reality, this is all about you and how I can best serve you! But here is a bit about me and my personality.

So, I am originally from South America. I’m from Caracas, Venezuela but moved to the US when I was a teenager. I currently live in Houston, Texas with my husband and 4 kids. We have moved 8 times in the last 7 years. And I am not only referring to different houses, I mean different countries and even continents. 

I enjoy traveling more than anything else (twenty countries so far) and consider myself a foodie –or at least a foodie-wannabe haha. I love baking with my daughters and cooking for the holidays. By the way, holidays are huge in the Vicente’s home!

I absolutely love to watch movies. It’s my favorite thing to do and it is where I often find inspiration for my films. I love watching TV shows, too, like Friends, The Office and Law + Order. I have watched all 300+ epidodes of Grey’s Anatomy and all Parenthood. But, my ultimate favorite and the one that makes me cry every time is This is Us!

I am always trying to perfect a hobby. Currently, I’m learning how to grow vegetables and herbs. Annnnnd reading! Even though reading is not an easy task for me somehow. My favorite books? Where the Crawdads Sing and Educated.

I am easy-going and a weird combination of introvert and extrovert (cue Third Culture Kid). I am mostly quiet, watching behind the scenes as I document your moments, but I can also step in and offer direction when necessary. I like to observe and listen for the poem that your story reflects and translate that into a film… into imagery.

WHAT MAKES MY HEART SMILE!

My little boy’s kisses, hugs and thoughtfulness
My oldest daughter’s heart beating strongly everyday
My stepson’s smiles and soccer goals
My little daughter’s giggles, expressions and silliness
An unplanned trip or any travel adventure
A blooming garden
A romantic dinner with my husband
A pair of new nude shoes
And of course, dessert! Oh dessert while watching a good movie!

 

 

 

 

Here is a video of my family from the Summer of 2018.. This is us! The sweet girl is my sister (my best friend). You will also see my mom and dad, whom the kids call “Mameche and Abu” 

The video was filmed in the mountains of North Carolina near Boone, where we try to go every Summer. 

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

 

Urquisa did our wedding video 11.10.18 and it is just magical! Urquisa is AMAZING! From the very beginning she made us feel heard, she took the time to get to know us as a couple, she shared her ideas with us and listened to what it was we wanted. Making us all the more excited to start this journey with her.

Urquisa is so very kind, super thoughtful, personable, and artistic we could just go on for days about her. She has such a keen eye for detail and aesthetic beauty. Urquisa truly demonstrates her passion and devotion for her craft. She had us reliving our special day all over again, a moment will not be forgotten or lost because of this incredible video; she had us and our families crying. We are genuinely happy and impressed with Urquisa’s work when capturing the most memorable moments from our wedding day. We can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed, it was a pleasure to work with her. Thank you so much Urquisa for giving us this remarkable video that we will treasure forever.

I know there are angels here on earth, and Urquisa Vicente is one of them. Urquisa came to my rescue and not only took beautiful photos (during Thanksgiving week no less!) but also came to my house and helped me pick out outfits because I was less than two days out from a c-section and could barely function. These photos will always warm my heart, not only because they capture some of our earliest moments as a family of eight, but because they are a reminder of the treasures of friendship.

Un día inolvidable!
  Conocimos a Urqui a través de una amiga, y contratamos sus servicios para realizar una sesión de pre-boda y ¡lo disfrutamos muchísimo! no estábamos muy convencidos de querer hacer este tipo de reportajes, pero gracias a ella, rompimos todos los tabues, y disfrutamos de un día inolvidable. Con su estilo fotográfico, logró un vídeo y fotos para el recuerdo, captó nuestra esencia, estábamos tan cómodos que nos permitió ser nosotros. Nos alegramos enormemente de haber hecho las fotos y videos con ella. Lo recomendamos 100%, es más, esperamos volver a contar con ella en futuras ocasiones especiales.

Urquisa handled the videography for our wedding and was incredible. She has a degree of attention to detail that we never imagined possible. Everything she did was careful, thoughtful, and beautiful. She managed to capture each of our most special moments and everything came out phenomenally.

The wedding video is our favorite memento from our wedding. It is beautiful, personalized, and different from any wedding video we’ve ever seen before. It captured not only the individual moments but the mood and ambiance of the wedding perfectly. We are both so thankful that we chose Urquisa as our videographer. It was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. Even after the wedding, Urquisa followed up with more surprises and care, which I won’t describe so you can have the same nice surprises that we did. Choose Urquisa for your wedding. She will surprise you over and over again with how wonderful she does her job and handles her business.

ALEX & ALLIE

Neat, impeccable, creative work where every detail, every moment, every expression is captured by a camera but I would say it is for her, Urquisa. She puts so much love and dedication into her work that she reflects it perfectly when she delivers her material. We were our daughter’s 15 years old and we relive that moment every time we watch the video.
we cry, we laugh and we want to see it over and over again. Urquisa’s work is unique and that’s what I liked the most! I recommend it 200% because it is worth it, because in addition to her creativity she is the presentation of her beautiful work, in those things one realizes that she does the work with Love, passion, feeling and herself as a Beautiful person.
Again a thousand and million thanks Urquisa, in your work you reflect what you are! honest, lover of what you do and most importantly leave unforgettable moments captured in a video or photos that are relived in the deepest when one sees them again!

We were so lucky to have Isa and her team at our wedding! Isa was highly recommended by my wedding photographer. We spoke on the phone to discuss the wedding and she was very professional and relatable.

Isa was willing to work with our budget and timeline and we are forever grateful. Isa and her team were very professional on our wedding day, they arrived early and was very organized. Isa has a very likable personality and she is just very easy to work and communicate with. I feel like organization is key on a wedding day because many things are going on at once, since Isa was very organized things went very smoothly and I can trust her to capture the important moments on our big day.

After the wedding, we received the videos and they are so beautifully made! Isa and her team did an amazing job recording everything and she is just absolutely amazingly talented at editing the videos to make them perfect!!! As a bonus she also sent us some still shots from our wedding day along with the videos. We were just so lucky to have Isa and her team come to our wedding and help us make memories that we will cherish for years to come! I would definitely recommend Isa to all my friends and families because she is just amazing!

PHOEBE

I’m not much for writing reviews, but I have to take the opportunity to let everyone know what an absolute angel and amazing photographer Urquisa is. I had the privilege of meeting Urquisa through a mutual friend, and she has taken my most beloved family photos. As someone who loves photos (I currently have 65,000+ on my iPhone) and who has used countless professional photographers, calling Urquisa’s work my favorite is saying a lot. She captures the subject, the light, the surroundings, and the emotions so beautifully. Did I mention she’s an angel? My children (there are SIX of them) adore her. She’s able to work with children of any age with an ease and patience that I admire. Hire her! You will thank yourself every single time you look at your photos!
