Boat Engagement Photo Shoot in Miami

We had so much fun with Ashley and Gus during their engagement photo shoot.  We first started with some beautiful park photos with their furry son Hanley (who was very well behaved an photogenic too) and then we headed out on their boat, where they spend a lot of their free time.  We had a blast, from going super fast on the boat, taking selfies with the wind in our hair (while Gus was punching it!) and had fun despite a sea urchin needle getting stuck in JohnPaul’s foot lol!    Enjoy some of this beautiful couples photos …. can’t wait for their big day in December!   <3

He’d follow me around the garden w/the hose running full blast, drench his little sneakers.

Miami Trash the Dress Photo Shoot Marathon

We had such a wonderful time during our Trash the Dress Marathon earlier this month at the Redland Koi Pond.  We wanted to really highlight to our clients and potential clients the Trash the Dress or Day After Photo shoot options they have.  Forget about being stressed out due to time constraints, weather or lighting conditions the day of the wedding.  These Portrait sessions offer brides and grooms the opportunity to have beautiful photos taken in different locations and without the stress that taking photos on the wedding day can bring.

Below check out the slide show of some of our beautiful images from that shoot. A special THANK YOU to our friend and extraodinarilly talented Elizabeth Bentancourt of Bella Lilly Studio for the absolutely breathtaking Flower arrangements and head pieces used for this shoot. Also, the FABULOUS Jessie Sierra Diaz of Makeup Artistry by Jessie for the flawless makeup on two of the girls. And of course our amazing friend Mike Mesa of Evolving Media Services for the behind the scenes film of this shoot, to give people an idea of how much fun these shoots are! Contact us today to book your session! Get that dress out of the back of your closet and channel your inner model!
