Carla & Pablo Engagement Session

When Carla and Pablo reached out to me to schedule their upcoming engagement session, it was a no-brainer for where we would go. I mean, what better location than Matheson Hammock Park in Miami, FL, the perfect place for beautiful sunset pictures!

“Pablo and I met in 2006 when we were both ballkids at the Miami Open (called the Nasdaq back then). We ran into each other almost a year later and after some myspace stalking (from Pablo’s part!) we started talking and dating at age 17. It’s been over 11 years since and after many adventures together we’re so excited to be getting married in December! ,” says Carla. Isn’t that the sweetest, most perfect best thing you’ve ever heard? I just love a good love story…

I think my favorite part about this shoot was when Pablo thought I was changing my lens so he was just in the moment with Carla talking and laughing and I am clicking away capturing those candid moments without them knowing. Naturally, I had to photograph that little moment! These two love birds are getting married in a few months and I cannot wait be there for their special day. Good luck on all the planning, you guys, and thanks for letting me be a part of this journey toward your marriage!

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!

Mycka & Edwin Wedding

2018-03-22_0001.jpg

There’s something about a classic, formal wedding inside of a church that gets me every time. It just feels so pure and cinematic. I love the pews, the pulpit, the architecture, and if I’m lucky the real life organ/stained glass windows/incredible art. Mycka and Edwin’s wedding ceremony took place at Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Miami, FL and they're wedding reception took place at a hidden gem in Homestead, FL called Secret Gardens of Miami

These two met at during high school years through a mutual friend. Edwin proposed to Mycka at Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira Church in Colombia and here we are looking at they're wedding photographs! Isn’t that the sweetest story?

About they're wedding day, Mycka said, “ I have found whom my soul loves.” How about that? 

You guys are going to rock this whole being married thing. Thanks for sharing your day with me!

Watch this beautiful slide show of Mycka & Edwin Happily Ever After...
