We LOVE traveling to do photo shoots and New York city is one of our favorite places to photograph in. Jeanette and Eric love to travel also, so they decided to do their engagement photo shoot in the city that never sleeps…. New York City. So it all started with a plane ride on the same day (unplanned), JohnPaul ripping his shorts at the airport (not just a little rip, an entire gash that left a huge hole in the shorts…. so much so, we had to go buy a new pair at the airport), getting a text message from Jeanette saying Eric ripped his pants the same day too lol! (they must be brothers from another mother!) Then the day of the shoot we had a blast with the best entourage anyone can ask for (with moms, aunts and big, little brother) and the photos as you can see below turned out SPECTACULAR! The weather had not yet warmed up yet for these Floridians, but it still looks amazing. We even made use of snow we found still lingering in Central Park. Enjoy some of their spectacular engagement photos.
Becky and Damian had an absolutely beautiful wedding at The church of the LIttle Flower in Coral Gables, followed by a fabulous reception at the Coral Gables Country Club. This wedding was complete with not only a beautiful Bride and Groom, but fabulous bridal party, spectacular South Florida weather and a non stop party from start to finish. Even Sebastian the Ibis from The U paid the newlyweds a visit for some serious partying! And as you can tell by the photos, they really partied!! Enjoy a highlight of this fabulous couples big day!
We had so much fun during this engagement Photo shoot. Kelly and Nick are an extraordinary couple who’s beautiful photo shoot started at Miami’s Vizcaya Museum with beautiful photos with a beautiful couple. We then moved to have some fun with paint! We always feel so honored to have met so many extraordinary people in our line of work, especially getting to be with them on such an important day. We get to know most of our couples and can say we have developed some life long friendships along the way. Having gotten to know Kelly, we knew that she lost her mom at the age of 14 due to breast cancer. Kelly felt a lump and immediately went to the doctor because of the history of breast cancer in her family. Last week she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I know we have many people that frequent our blog and we ask that you please pray for Kelly. We hope this raises awareness to folks about screening at any age and really being in touch with your health. We know that with your prayers and Kelly’s guardian angel (her mom) she will get through this and show that cancer who is boss. Love you guys and we will celebrate your love for one another on 3/14/15 cancer free!
Elaine and Jovani had a beautiful Islamorada beach wedding at the Islamorada Fish Company. We feel like a part of this wonderful family having now been a part of two of their beautiful life events! Because Elaine and Jovani are now expecting a beautiful bundle of joy, their big day was moved from November to March of this year. We were already booked on the new date, but luckily had our fabulous Level X partner, Bryan photograph this very special day for them. The day was perfect, from gorgeous weather, to heartfelt tributes to gone but not forgotten family members, to just a wonderful union of two amazing families celebrating the love of this beautiful couple. Enjoy a sneak peak of their beautiful wedding day.
Lisa and Felix had their Engagement Photo shoot at the beautiful and very photogenic Deering Estate at Cutler in Miami. Although this jet setting couple is usually traveling, they wanted to make sure their engagement shoot was in a beautiful South Florida location and Deering Estate certainly fit that category. They are not only big travelers, Felix is a self proclaimed foodie, so you know a picnic in this beautiful location would be perfect! Enjoy a slideshow of some of their engagement photos. We are looking forward to their big day in October of this year!
Maria and Francisco had an absolutely beautiful wedding. First with their ceremony at St. Hugh Catholic Church in Coconut Grove, immediately following by a reception at the fabulous Rusty Pelican. There is nothing more beautiful than including personal details that truly make your wedding unique. Maria and Cisco LOVE traveling, so they made sure to include travel in the theme of their wedding. From unique luggage tags as seating cards to city table names, really made their wedding a world class event. It was all beautiful and the party did not disappoint, where they and their guests partied and danced the night away! Enjoy some highlights of this beautiful couples big day!
We had such a wonderful time with Addis and Amed during their engagement session. We took some great shots of this wonderful couple around the streets of Coconut Grove, just hanging out and enjoying each others company! Then, we took a fun ride on a beautiful sail boat, where the breeze, the light and the scenery were absolutely perfect! We usually provide the comic relief during photo shoots to make sure the couple feels comfortable, but during this shoot Amed was the one to keep us all laughing! Enjoy some of their beautiful engagement photos.
