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’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.
