What's your wedding style? Do you find yourself attracted to bright colors and dramatic contrast, or soft airy images with lots of whites and pastels?
As a wedding photographer, I think it's very important to not take a wedding just for the paycheck. It's crucial that tyou not only feel a personal connection with your photographer, but that you fall in love with their photography style. Take a look around your house. What is your decor like? Try and imagine what a huge framed photo would look like over your couch. Does your photographer's style mesh in perfectly? Does it add a certain pizazz to your room?
My style happens to be very commercial. I am very attracted to intensity, high contrast imagery. I do have some variety in my shots, and I do shoot in natural light when the subject lends itself. But my main focus is dramatic lighting, commercial fashion photography. I love to make my clients (whether they are professional models or shy brides) look like they were torn out of a Vogue magazine. I love details; I love to style products and people in artistic ways that make my subjects pop. I love to photograph weddings like I would film a music video, with every shot looking as vibrant and balanced as possible; unique, yet contributing to the entire story that is your wedding day.
Planning your wedding timeline
Weddings go by SO fast. You spend months, even years planning, and the day is gone in the blink of an eye. Weddings also run late, not everything goes according to plan, and this is totally normal. 90% of the weddings I shoot do not start on time for different reasons. There are so many people and factors involved in a short period of time, that it’s understandable things won’t run perfectly according to plan. This does not mean your wedding day experience cannot be perfect!
I love shooting weddings. Not only do I enjoy the photography aspect, but also the wedding in itself. I love the decorations, the atmosphere, the dresses, the flowers. I loved planning my own wedding. I have learned that the success in a smooth wedding day is all in the planning; especially if you’re a laid back couple. And since I know that schedules don’t always run smoothly, I leave a time cushion so that if Murphy’s Law kicks into action, picture time will not be affected.
When we sit down for our initial chat, you will get to not only see some of my albums and products, but you will also get a chance to go over your desired timeline. Once I have an idea of what your ideal wedding day looks like, I will make suggestions as to how you can make it even better, and what kind of photography coverage would work best for you. A bride who is getting married & having a brunch reception in a small boutique hotel might not need a 10 hour package. But someone using 3 different locations, 200 guests and an extensive formal group shot list will not be able to squeeze everything into a 5 hour package. I offer many options and will only suggest, step by step, what I believe is best for you, so you can enjoy your day without added stress. My goal is to shoot your wedding like a fly on the wall, capturing all the beautiful once in a lifetime moments as they unfold. And when it’s time for portraits, have enough time to get some magazine worthy shots of the beautiful bride & groom!

A Summer norway wedding
What a busy few months it has been! I have been doing a lot of fashion and commercial work, from Miami Fashion Week, to fashion editorial in the everglades! After all this craziness, I went straight over to Oslo, Norway for not only vacation, but to shoot a wedding in back of the Royal Palace. The weather was nothing short of beautiful and cooperative for the wedding, and as a matter of fact, for the entire stay!
A Lovely Oceanside Wedding
Last month I went back to the beautiful, rustic Seawatch Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, where I had shot one of my first weddings several years back. It's such a great venue, and gave such a cozy, winter feel to the beautiful couple's Christmas time wedding. It was a great time, with a lovely crowd, and amazing details! Congratulations to the newly weds!
I started out my December with shooting this beautiful Christmas inspired wedding at one of my favorite venues so far; The Addison in Boca Raton, FL. I couldn't get over how amazing the red dresses to the festive, yet classy chic decor was and went with the venue. I had a great time with some really amazing people. Congrats you two! :)
A date has been set for 2015 Christmas mini sessions!
I'm really excited to set these up, as I always do regular sessions and have been wanting to dedicate an entire weekend day to mini sessions. Let me explain a little how these will work!
DATE: November 21, 2015, Saturday
TIMES: TBA (9 AM-5 PM); Each booking will get a 20 minute slot. You can book 2 slots if you'd like to get more time & shots. There is a limit of 5 people per slot. Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to get situated and make the most of your booking time.
LOCATION: Hollywood home studio (indoor)
This year's theme will include a vintage wood background with a mix of Christmas tree foliage and beautiful twinkle lights!
POLICIES: Full payment of session is required in order to book, and is non refundable. In the event of a cancellation (with at least 24 hours notice), you will receive a credit for the amount paid towards a later session to use within the year. Since sessions will be held indoors, all bookings are rain or shine.
ADDITIONAL: Extra goodies will be available for purchase online after your session, such as greeting cards and prints!
*Due to the nature of these time dependent sessions, infants and pets will not be included in these mini sessions, since they require a little more time and planning. I would love to schedule you for a regular session if you require an infant or pet friendly portrait and make sure we allow the required time and care :)
Please message me with additional questions and inquiries! I'd like to ask you to include the names, and amount of people in your group along with children ages
Port St. Lucie Wedding
This gorgeous wedding took place at the beautiful PGA Country Club in Port St. Lucie. It's always fun to shoot in a different part of Florida; with much more natural landscapes with beautiful trees than I am used to! The couple & guests were such a pleasure to work with and so much fun! I loved all the details from the amazing family restored antique Chevy to the hidden Halo accents only a gamer would spot. And look at those gorgeous smiles on the happy couple! Congrats to the newly weds!
A beautiful Key Largo Wedding
My lovely bride and groom came all the way from Ohio to get married in beautiful Key Largo. The wedding took place at the Key Largo Lighthouse right by the ocean. I love Florida Keys weddings because they are so laid back and really let the couple and guests relax and enjoy their day. But they did catch me by surprise when the groom chased the bride with the cake and threw the whole thing on her during the cake cutting! In all the weddings I have shot, that was the most unique of cake cuttings! It was a very fun wedding to be a part of. We ended the night with some fun shots with the star lit night sky. Congrats guys! :)
Congratulations to the Governors! I had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful couple's wedding at their beautiful venue; The Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach! This couple flew in from across the country to celebrate their union in style in South Beach, and planned every last detail so well! I loved their decor and colors, which all blended in seamlessly with the Raleigh's art deco style. There were so many awesome options for photo ops that there was not enough time to even cover them all. Not only was the wedding and venue itself great, but the bride & groom, along with their family were nothing short of fun and fabulous! I would say the wedding was a great success :)
This is my third time shooting at the beautiful Jacaranda Golf & Country Club in Plantation, and it is always a beautiful location to shoot a wedding! My bride and groom were such good sports and so relaxed about their wedding; which made it easy to capture, since they were genuinely enjoying their day to the fullest! They got married under the cutest white gazebo overlooking the golf course and lake, just before sunset, and it was nothing short of romantic! Congrats you two! :)
