New York is a magical place, specially during spring, every time there’s a session there, I know I’m bringing home amazing photos… but just amazing photos without fun is not worthy, I had a blast with Claudia and Jorge, we went to central park, grand central station, chelsea market and time square… there’s no way to end the day better than eating an authentic home style italian food at Carmine’s.
I glad to share this amazing session.
Words are not enough to describe the experience of being close to these great families, first thing, they make you feel one of them at minute 1, second, fun is their last name, they really know how to enjoy a party.
We started at a spa in pembroke pines where sheila got pampered to enjoy her wedding day, then the mutiny hotel was the stage for everybody to get ready and head to the Plymouth Congregation Church in Coconut Groove, my favorite part of the ceremony is at the end when the bride and groom gets to ring the bells, it’s a joyful moment, and we couldn’t end a better day at the cocoplum where the fun took over – Aside from all the fun, Sheila and Bernie are a very sweet and young couple, she’s a Chef and Bernie designs custom motorcycle (choppers) – don’t miss their engagement session, where Bernie brought one of his master piece clicking here
I hope you enjoy these photos
I met with Anna one week before the wedding to go over the details, she had planned a beautiful ceremony in the gardens of Fairchild Tropical Gardens, and some awesome locations to do creative portrait, but we had a little problem, over 60% chance of rain. the wedding day came, sky was cloudy, but as I drove to the Mayfair to shoot the getting ready, the chance of rain was 0% – after 30 minutes it started raining, and the forecast changed to 100% chance of rain. Plan B had to come into action, but what I admired most in Anna, was her ability to rant for 5 seconds, let it out and enjoy her day as if it was perfectly planned, what I learned from this situation is that it doesn’t matter what you plan, just enjoy the moment the best you can, and they did this, their wedding was one of the most beautiful wedding I’ve shot, the rain gave up after the ceremony, and we were able to to some shots we had planned for. Fred is one of a kind, maybe it’s the culture from Belgium where he’s from, but he was the most kind and emotional groom I’ve ever seen, he even cried during the kiss the bride part lol – but what I loved to see, was when we found out that plan B had to be in action, he texted Anna saying: “Together with you, the sun will always shine in my heart”.
I hope you enjoy the story this photos will tell you.
I got my private pilot license a while ago, Daniel was my instructor, I was still single, after I got my license, I got to live in Dallas, Boston, came back to Miami, got married, went to Atlanta, then got back, facebook didn’t existed and we had zero contact, one day I was at the Lincoln road mall, and guess who’s there, Daniel and this beautiful woman, I approached him, we talked and he introduced Brenda, that was probably 2009, it had been more than 10 years that I didn’t see him, a month later, at the falls, who’s there? Daniel again… I couldn’t believe, I thought it was a sign for me to get back flying again (since I stopped after my kids were born) – Very well, we connected of Facebook and kept contact via facebook, I attempted to get back flying and asked him for his help, but I was too busy and let it go. One day out of nothing, I noticed he posted that they got engaged, I asked him if he needed a photographer, we met at Starbucks and gelled once again Now I know why these coincidences happened, I had to shoot their wedding well, maybe get back airborne as well
Their wedding day was perfect, everything very beautiful, the weather couldn’t be better, and the timing too… I hope you enjoy these photos
I’ll start writing this blog post asking you to think of the sweetest couple you ever know, got it? now double it, it’s Olenka and David. It’s incredible how visible these two were made for each other. The most amazing part is that it doesn’t end there, Olenka and David’s family are so caring and special, that it has been 5 days since their wedding, and I still miss them
We started at the Mayfair, with the super make up artist Dunia Rivero, not the first time I worked with her, and for sure not the last one – I also got to meet this dynamic duo of videographers from Argentina, Luis and Eddy from Films TV, and the party rocked with Jorge from vision DJ’s, not to mention the beauitful flowers from Marta Villar Floral design that transformed The Cocoplum Women’s Club into an extraordinary venue.
Breathtaking, this is the only word that I found to be closest to what Elizabeth and Miguel’s wedding was. It started at the Biltmore Hotel with the guys, and Miguel’s family, then to the beautiful Golf Suite to capture Elizabeth and her bridesmaid
Ceremony took place in the beautiful Saint Francis de Sales church in South Beach, followed by “the reception” in the Cocoplum women’s club, which was a blast, the decoration, flowers and lighting created an awesome atmosphere, and the band Tartara and their DJ took care of people’s fun, for me, this was a 13 hour wedding that didn’t last more than 2 hours

My last wedding of 2010. Caryn and Federico’s story could easily be a movie, She went to study in Spain, and met him there, he’s a teacher and decided to live in Miami, where Caryn is from… As you can see in the photos, the happiness around was incredible, what a vibe. I loved it.
