When Adria called me saying she wanted to shoot around brickell key and brickell, I cheered, not only because Brickell is amazing, but because we were shooting on Brickell with a meaning, they both live there, and it’s where they want to eternize this wonderful moment together.
Not to mention how sweet and kind they are, our session was a breeze, the weather was perfect and I couldn’t ask for a better engagement session.
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
Love, respect, kindness and any other word you can think of within this category will fit what I was able to capture from Anna and Juan’s wedding, It was a different feeling when the party ended and I went home, happy to rest, but at the same time I wanted to be there. I’m happy I was able to capture all those emotions in pictures, I also would like to mention that Anna’s bouquet has the same design of her mother’s bouquet, and the most emotional moment, was the grandfather and bride dance, where Anna’s mother recorded with a cell phone her grand father playing the piano, and they played that recording at their dance.

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.
I’m an exclusive wedding photographer, but, for every rule there is an exception, specially when these exceptions happens with people that are great friends, Rafael and Caroline are one of these people that I’ll definitely make any exception for them, even maternity photography, which I promised myself that I had no intention doing it professionally, but like I always say, it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you’re doing with the right people. Am I going to do maternity sessions in the near future? if all the pregnant ladies will be as nice as Caroline were, why not? but having a wife that went thru 2 pregnancies, I have a clue what mood swings can do… lol
I hope you enjoy this session, in this case, you won’t see the traditional maternity photo shoot, Caroline is a great fashion photographer, and she wanted an Editorial “fashiony” look to it
We had the most amusing engagement session of the summer, it started in a ranch, then we rode golf carts with monster truck wheels to remote places I never thought I could get there, surprisingly no mosquitos bites at all then we met at Cafe 27 with a huge crew to do the bike shots, Bernie builds them, and this particular bike he custom built to the Miami Ink’s owner. We couldn’t end the day better, eating the best gator bites I have ever tasted, it was simply delicious – After this amazing experience, I couldn’t wait longer to post these photos.
I went to Naples to shoot Natalia and Drew’s engagement session, I had a lot of fun, got to cross the everglades and get inspired by the whole swampy scenery with lots of wild life… I knew this whole trip would pay off with awesome images. Drew and Natalia are very kind, we drove together to the locations, it was so nice to spend this time together with them between the shoots, the more we knew each other, the more comfortable we became, resulting amazing images.
What can you expect from a couple that get married on St. Patricks day? Answer: LOVE + A LOT OF FUN! – Well, It was hard to remember a wedding that had such fun as Carlos and Mairelys… well, it starts with their heritage, cubans and I’ll tell you what, they do know how to party, it went all night long, and the rhythm didn’t slowed down.

I had a wonderful time with Yinetsy and Matt, what a sweet couple. They were made for each other, I can foresee a lifetime relationship between them, it’s a privilege to register this new step in their lives.
