Jennifer & Jeff's Engagement Session!!!!

One of my favorite moments about blogging is when I can sit and remember the time we share with our couple during our sessions. The first thing I did as soon as I started writing this was to smile. Jennifer and Jeff are an amazing couple with so much to be happy for. They have been double blessed this year; not only will they be celebrating their marriage, but they will be welcoming their son into the world soon after their wedding!!!! SOOOO HAPPY FOR THEM!!!!
BTW, I must also say, with his parent’s looks, OH BOY! He's going to be gorgeous!!!
With double the celebration I can just imagine how emotional and fun their wedding will be and we are honored to be part of it.
Oh, we also got to meet Lola, she joined them for some of the photos and as you can see on the last photo she was a precious little cutie! Thank you to Jennifer’s sister for helping with Lola :)
I can’t wait for your day! It’s going to be an awesome celebration!!!
Hugs & enjoy!

Boudoir Marathon, Rocking it at My Studio!!! Miami Boudoir Photographer

First of all I wanted to say thank you to all my gorgeous ladies that participated on the August Boudoir Marathon. It was a pleasure working with you and I am so excited for you to see your teasers! Woohooo!!!
Mrs. Karen is my first August Marathon beauty to give me permission to blog some of her teasers!
Can you say, WOWZA!!!! Karen was a little scared about some curves on her body, but HELLO, she has curves in all the right places! Don’t you agree?
Karen’s boudoir photos are a birthday present for her husband, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HIM!!! He is going to faint!
Thank you for letting me blog your photos Karen, you look amazing!

I am Twittering!!! Lol.

I know that I am a bad blogger “sometimes”, but I am trying to change that.
So, in the mean time, I am going to Twitter as much as I can; maybe I will be better at Twittering :)
For the ones who don’t know, Twitter is like a journal you keep of your daily activities and thoughts, I guess… Anything goes; at least that’s the way I am going to make it.
That way you can keep up with what I am up to!

If you also Twitter, request to follow:
Join in the fun!!!

Leslie & Alexis's Wedding!!! Miami Wedding Photography

Clicking immediately with my couples is so important to me… Leslie and Alexis’s wedding was a beautiful event, full of emotion and so much fun!
Leslie is another one of my gorgeous brides that trusted me to capture her amazing day after looking at my work on my blog and having a phone call meeting (talk about a major click!)
After talking to her leading to their wedding day, I discovered that her dad is related and works for Costa Nursery; my dad had worked for them too for 10 years and now Leslie’s dad purchases plants from my dad’s nursery. What a small world!!!!
I called my dad to let him know and he couldn’t believe it! I was super excited to see who I remember from going with my dad to the trade shows and company parties.

Leslie and Alexis did an amazing job planning their wedding. Beautiful details, including a gorgeous hand made veil done by her grandma, stunning orchid centerpieces, beautiful menus, you name it they had it!
Leslie and her mom were super emotional throughout the day and I will never forget when Leslie’s mom said while wiping a tear away, “She is my best friend,” I had an immediate knot on my throat and had to look away before loosing it. I am such a girl, but moments like that are priceless!

Congrats again Leslie and Alexis!!! It was a pleasure capturing your day and I LOOOOVED meeting your family, and thank you for sharing one the most important days of your lives with us.
We haven’t opened our personalized bottle of vine yet; we are saving it for a special occasion 

Lots of love!

Tiffany and David's Engagement Session

Tiffany, Tiffany, I had been dying to write this blog and share a little bit of the story that let us to this AMAZING session.
Soooo much fun!!!! Ok so let me get on with it… So our session was schedule for May in Palm Beach. We get there on what seemed 100% humidity; and after a couple of test shoots we had to unfortunately cancel their session. Tiffany’s hair and make-up did not hold up not even 5 minutes under the outdoor conditions. With tears on her eyes we departed, but like I always say “Things happen for a reason” and boy was this saying so true on this circumstance.

We meet up with them a week ago and OH MY!!! We saw David first and we said hi; Tiffany was waiting for us at the bar and when she turned around, my jaw dropped!!! Seriously, time was going in slow motion as she turned around to greet us. Incredible hair and makeup, a total SUPERMODEL!!!! I could not be happier for her!!!
People were stopping to watch the session, but they did not flicker. Oh, and I'm not even going to talk about their chemistry, because it was visible all over, in every smile, every touch and every look.

I can’t wait to share your wedding day with you guys in November!!! It’s going to be a blast!

PS, make up trials are super important, test it outdoors! And listen to your photographer because it pays off at the end.

Lourdes & Charlie's Engagement Session!!

I wanted to start this blog by sharing with you how I got to know Lourdes. Their wedding day is in early November and at the time they first contacted me, I had 2 couples requesting packages for their day. Well, after a couple of emails Lourdes got the day by asking me to send her the contracts for her wedding day, engagement session and bridal shower all without a meeting. Is not the first for us, but every time this happens we are blown away by the level of trust our couples are showing us; we always try to do something special for these amazing couples to reciprocate the love :)

To say the least it was a true pleasure getting to know such a fun couple on such a steamy day. Lourdes had the agenda to make her session a sexy one, but besides the chemistry they had between them; what I saw from their interaction was a more fun couple, full of giggles and pure joy to be close to one another. Thank you guys for sharing time with us and I can not wait to see both of you in November and Lourdes on a couple of weeks at your bridal shower!!!!!
