Carla & Pablo Wedding

“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt

with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Pablo and Carla met in 2006 when we were both ballkids at the Miami Open (called the Nasdaq back then). They ran into each other almost a year later and after some myspace stalking (from Pablo’s part!) they started talking and dating at age 17. It’s been over 11 years since and after many adventures together they’re so excited to be starting the adventure of husband and wife. Carla and Pablo pledged your love in a romantic ceremony amidst the lush greenery of the Crandon Park Golf Course. After the ceremony, the celebrations continued with courtyard cocktail hour and their reception.

The first look, for me, is one of the best moments of the day to capture. One of the most romantic parts of their special day, it is full of excitement, nerves and so much love. It also means they have a moment to share, just the two of them before seeing all of their family. Settle any nerves and prepare for their most special day. (And while, yes, I am there, I’m not there either. The first look is always captured in a subtle, non-intrusive way.)

The emotion on Pablo’s face, as he watches his bride to be come toward him, is just beautiful. All that love! Carlo and Pablo said their vows and devoted their lives to one another in front of their closest family and friends. Their reception was full of fun and laughter. Each table number representing a year in their relationship, with pictures to match. Such a beautiful touch. The cake cutting nearly turned into a full on food fight!! (kiddling!)

Thank you Pablo and Carla for such an amazing and fun day. It was my honour to capture your love and marriage. May you have all the joy and happiness in your new life adventures as husband and wife.

Lorelei & James Wedding

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you

courage.” – Lao Tzu

James and Lorelei met on a dating app and it turned into a lifelong love!. They bonded over many things and one of those was a love of food. In their own words they call themselves “Champion Eaters”. Lorelei loves that James is strong, intelligent, well spoken, kind, and hilarious. James adores her and says she is articulate, graceful, wise, hilarious, and The One. If this is not a match made in then I don’t know what is.

I love being based in Miami. I never tire of the amazing locations available for shoots as a photographer. At Flamingo Gardens there are acres of botanical gardens creating the picture perfect wedding setting and basically a photographers ideal location. And this is the place that Lorelei and James have chosen for their special day. When I arrive to the house, Lorelei is being well looked after by her girl squad. Lots of giggles, some bubbly and everyone can’t stop smiling. (Another reason I love my job - capturing the moments).

The final touches are added, shoes and jewels and Lorelei is off to meet her husband to be for their first look. I adore first looks, the anticipation, excitement, nerves, it’s so amazing to watch and to capture. As she walks up behind him, James cannot wait to turn around and gaze on his bride to be, but he has to wait. Once he turns they both stare into each others eyes! That is the definition of the look of love! ( Eeeeeek, it makes me excited all over again just looking through the photos.)

Lorelei and James said their vows and dedicate their lives to each other in front of family and friends. An emotion filled ceremony followed by a super-fun filled reception. A truly beautiful day from start to finish.

Congratulations James and Lorelei. May your married life be filled with all the joy and happiness. I am honored to have been part of your special day.

Cassidy & William Wedding

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”

Today’s wedding comes to you from the fabulous Secret Gardens of Miami, documenting the love of Cassidy & William as they say their I do’s in front of their closest friends and family. Cassidy and Wiliam originally met in high school, but were both dating other people. THANKFULLY they reconnected again through Instagram and have been inseparable ever since. This past August, on Cassidy’s first trip outside the US, they traveled to Germany, Northern Ireland and France. He proposed at the Giant’s Causeway, in Northern Ireland, which is amazingly beautiful and forever will be one of Cassidy’s favorite places in the world.

So I got to photograph the magical day that was their wedding. And when I say magical, I mean it. The Harry Potter details spread throughout the day were beautiful and really made the day their own from Hogwarts letter invitations to the magic potions on the table settings. Cassidy and William said their I do’s in front of their closest family and treasured friends. The outside ceremony was beautiful. The happy couple just beamed all day. The location and the lighting was just divine and we made the most of it. We got the most beautiful portraits of the happy couple. After a fun filled reception, speeches and cake cutting, they and all of their guests happily danced the night away.

Thank you, Cassidy and William, for choosing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you every happiness in your future together as husband and wife.
