Hi there! My name is Omar. I'm co-owner, with Lorenza, of Mena Video & Photography. I started in the business in 2004 and Lorenza joined me in 2007. Since my first wedding in 2004, we have covered almost 300 events (both Quinceanera and Wedding). We love what we do and are constantly doing our best to train and learn.
As a photographer, I've had the opportunity to shoot a few documentaries for Al Jourgensen (6x Grammy Nominee of the band Ministry) as well as countless magazine covers. One really cool thing happened for me in 2013, I had one of my prints hung for display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood. :) Even though our passion is in photography, I'm a huge music geek. What would I do without an Ipod?!
So, as you're reading this, you might think...what separates us from any other photographer in El Paso. The answer is simple. My studio puts its money where its mouth is. If you aren't thrilled about your products and/or service with our studio... we don't deserve to get paid. That's right...we'll give you your money back. This is how confident I am about how you will love your images. Your prints are printed on Kodak Endura (the best in the ENTIRE planet) and books printed on Fuji Pearl Paper (best in the industry for custom albums).
In a digital age, it may seem that books and prints are obsolete but I can assure you, there is nothing like putting a frame on your desk of your engagement session, canvas groupings on the walls of your home, sharing your acrylic covered album that is smudge proof, fingerprint proof and even WATERPROOF with your family and friends during the holidays. The book is also library bound (unlike many other custom books that are glued together) so it is meant to last.
I don't mean to spend so much time talking about my products but it's the reason why we have had as many thrilled clients. Here are a few quotes from some recent brides;
" I just picked up my wedding photos and they are gorgeous! !! I can not wait to see our book when it's ready.
Thank you Omar and Lorenza for capturing our day. These pictures will be cherished and the memories will last forever thanks to you guys. — with Omar Mena." by Jennifer Maldonado
" We are very excited. Again the photos are absolutely amazing thank you." - Monica Kuhn
