Nichole & Lovel Engagement Session

One of the best things about my job is that I do not encounter the same day twice. And that’s just how I like it. New people, new places and so much more in between. It definitely keeps it interesting. When it comes to shooting engagement sessions it never ceases to amaze me, how you can tell people are made for each other! Just to look at two people and think “wow, they are perfect together!” Whether it’s the way they look at each other, the subtle ways they find to always touch each other or the way the bounce off each other with wit and fun. Nichole & Lovel are all those things and more! Nichole describes him as giving, considerate, sensitive, silly, and patient. And Lovel describes her as beautiful, funny, smart, caring, intriguing. They met when a friend of Nichole’s was introducing her to a group of her friends and in walks Lovel. They hit it off straight away and knew they wanted to get to know each other more. The rest, as they say, is history! They have been together and apart for a total of 25 years! Crazy in love is how you would describe it. We did their engagement shoot at a beautiful enchanted park in Davie with so many locations to choose from. It truly is a wondrous place to explore. The light on the day made my job a dream. And just as I suspected it was so much fun. As Nichole says “He’s stuck with me!” And he couldn’t be happier about it. Nichole and Lovel, thank you for letting me capture your true love, I wish you nothing but the best for your life that lies ahead.

Gloria & German Engagement Session

*singing* It’s the final countdown… to my preview of Gloria and German’s recent engagement session! And in case you couldn’t tell from the pictures I’m about to show you, these two lovebirds are ALL about Soccer and Rustic. Can you guess how they spend their Saturday nights in the soccer season? That’s right – tailgating, chowing down on soccer themed finger foods with friends, and cheering for their favorite soccer teams. Naturally, she wore a soccer jersey and a rustic outfit to fit their wedding theme, he wore the same outfits and we headed to Amelia Earhart Park - Miami-Dade County in FL. 

I asked Gloria how she met German and your going to laugh and say awww! Gloria said, “Every Monday we would play soccer with a group of friends at a local park. We met through soccer and hated each other at first but after we got to know each other, we fell in love.” 

The big day is right around the corner and I think I might have a couple good gift ideas for anyone who’s shopping for these two. A pair of tickets to their favorite soccer games? A signed jersey they can frame and hang in the house? A gift card to a local sports bar? or a sport themed dish towels? I’m too good at this…

Good luck on the big day, you two! I know it’ll be a blast for you and your guests!

Marisa & Kyle Wedding

Heading to Living Sculpture Sanctuary for the Catalano & Christiansen wedding, I knew that it was going to be an extraordinarily special day. This gorgeous, incredibly in-love couple met 15 years ago and planned a sweet, intimate wedding shared between themselves and close family and friends. Walking in, I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful rustic decor right away, and more and more of those little details starting popping out.  And here we are, all this time later with a gorgeous wedding that’s exactly like how they planned, perfect in every way! I find that one of the best things about small weddings is that they lend themselves to especially tender moments. They also somehow feel a little more at ease, and that’s exactly what the vibe was on this beautiful day in April. I’ll leave you with a few more of my favorite moments from the day, and with a big congrats to the newlyweds!

Keka & Sam Wedding

Coming to you on the blog today is Keka and Sam’s February wedding, which is a serious contender for one of the most fun weddings I have ever photographed. From 3:00 pm in the afternoon when we started the day at Hilton Grand Vacations at McAlpin-Ocean Plaza while the Bride & Groom was getting ready, to the ceremony at Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, and then to the reception at Miami Shores Country Club the shenanigans ended at 11:00 pm in the night and with a VIP Uber waiting at the door for the Bride and Groom to take them away, it was a non-stop stream of laughing, dancing and merrymaking. (Do people say “merrymaking” still? If not, this wedding is definitely  bringing it back).  Here's a little slideshow of the highlights of this BEAUTIFUL Wedding. Enjoy!

These two lovebirds met at a bar called The Sandbar, well like they say the rest is history and have clearly been having the time of their lives ever since. And, as you’d expect, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were just as much fun. I mean, there are wedding parties… and then there are wedding PARTIES. Mingled in with the uproarious events were some genuinely sweet moments, too. I loved when their daughter was given the microphone to say a toast to her lovely parents. Just goes to show that fun and love go together really, really well. Congrats again, Keka and Sam, and is it too much to ask that you put me on the invite list for any of your future get-togethers…? Ha!
