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.

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!

Patricia & Kevin Engagement Session

Hello friends, meet Patricia & Kevin, when I first met them at our photography consultation I knew at that very moment we were a good fit! I asked them a series of question but my favorite question I love to ask my couples is how they met... it never fails when a couple talks about their love story there is always a twinkle in their eyes and a huge grin from ear to ear. So here is Patricia & Kevin love story; They met through a co-worker at Kevin's job. The co-worker happened to be her best friends sister. She sent her a message asking if she wanted to meet someone and sent her his number. They went on their first date and you know how the saying goes " The rest is history" I remember Patricia telling me "We both truly believe God sent us to each other. We were both single a very long time... Praying for our soulmate. When we met and got to know each other we both knew we were blessed to find one another. He's everything she needed and she's everything he needed. Real Love is truly is all in God's time."

Jennyffer & José Engagement Session

You don’t have to ask me twice to head to the airport called Signature Flight Support PBI and the beach my happy places for an engagement shoot! That’s where I photographed Jennyfer and Jose, and it was an absolute dream session in every way.  Jennyfer & Jose wore matching outfits that said Mr. & Mrs. and used a vintage letter J marquee because they are known as the “J’s” their 2nd outfit change Jennifer wore the most beautiful flowing floral printed dress that she look absolutely incredible in, and Jose looked so handsome in his suit which blended into the scenery perfectly!

They also wanted to do sunset pictures so we headed to the shore at around 5:00 pm just when the sun was setting which made the light especially golden, soft and rich, and the Coral Cove Park waters a deep blue rich turquoise that appears shimmery

I love hearing couples love story! So when I first met them over a cup of coffee at Starbucks they shared with me how they met and it went a little something like this…

Our love story began on August, 2016 when we, fortunately, encountered our profiles on an online dating site... yes, we did!!!. After exchanging few texts, we agreed to meet in person... literally three (3) days after the first text. We met after work at The Pub. Jose was sitting at the bar, waiting... (could you guess which J was pretty anxious?)  then I arrived, and we really felt at ease after our introduction. At some point, early in the conversation, we said: "I am from Venezuela, and I am from Puerto Rico"... from that moment, we knew that we would get along like "Arepa con Bacalao" (a Puerto Rican song that fuses two (2) distinctive dishes from our countries "Borinquezolano style") Time flew that night, we were talking & laughing for hours, the chemistry was definitely there between us. Then, the time to say goodbye came, it was there when I knew, and He knew that we needed to see each other again very soon... and the rest, as they say, (no matter how cheesy it is)  is history!! 

Every time I read their love story it put’s a smile on my face. For they're wedding day in October these two lovebirds are heading to St. Raymond Church for their ceremony and then La Jolla Ballroom for the reception. I have no doubts that it’s going to be a beautiful day full of sunshine, love and joy!
