Loren and Philip  |  Married

Four Seasons Miami Wedding


As young, cool, contemporary and unique our Miami weddings are ~ there are special moments that make planning a wedding ! From the moment he reaches out to your parents, gets on a knee and you start planning a wedding ~ chances are we are talking white dress, tuxedo, bridesmaids, groomsmen, wedding cake, first dance and that one with your Dad ~ TRADITION! Now when we’re talking tradition and the Jewish wedding ~  images of Tevye, the proud father of five daughters in the movie Fiddler On The Roof come to mind (if you haven’t seen the movie ~ DO!) So when Loren and Philip invited us to their Four Seasons Miami wedding not only was I going to experience and witness an amazing life moment but I knew that to capture the details of their Miami Jewish wedding I would be focusing on so much tradition.

So this wedding started with a proposal which normally comes with a ring ~ Tradition!

Then it has a moment when the groom sees his stunning Bride for the first time ~ Tradition!

And whoever thought that the first look was that of the Groom ~ what of the Dad seeing his Daughter in a wedding dress! ~ Tradition!

Now this family heirloom Bible has been witness to many a family wedding as seen by the signatures and dates of family weddings! ~ Tradition!

Surrounded by your loved ones under the Chupah ~ Tradition!

As I witness the wedding vows I noticed the Rabbi’s manual opened to the wedding service and I couldn’t help wonder how many weddings the pages of this book have borne witness to ~ Tradition!

A favorite part of any wedding for me is that moment when the couple come back from the Chupah just married! Tradition!

Now apart from tradition stunning images showing a romantic side as seen above and something a little different below ~

A quiet stroll, most likely the most privacy they had all day as they both reflect on their moment.

Timeless portraits that 20, 30, 40 years from now will be as fresh as the day they were taken ~ Tradition!

Now to a classy and very engaging first dance, I love the way Philip gives the floor to Loren and the way her gown just twirls!

What joy as together they are lifted by loved ones in the spirit of joy and loving support during what I think is one of the most famous dances that everyone recognizes ~ the Hora~ Tradition!

This guy is on top of the world!

And so is Dad!

What a joy to witness Mom and Dad celebrate with such joy!

Now every wedding has countless moments that are non stop and it’s up to the caring eye of an amazing photographer to capture those moments ~ tradition!

With an amazing wedding comes the opportunity to collaborate with so many incredible vendors: Four Seasons Miami, Heatwave Band, Flowers By Tony, Broadway Video, Wedding Gown By J Del Olmo

So let me capture the TRADITION on your wedding day!

Jenelle + Carlos  |  Married

St Hugh Catholic Church Coral Gables Country Club Wedding



Jenelle and Carlos began their Miami wedding as many couples do ~ excited! Jenelle chose to get ready at home while Carlos prepared for the wedding experience at the Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables. Their wedding ceremony took place at St Hugh Catholic Church in Coconut Grove and their celebration at the Coral Gables Country Club.

The perfect wedding formal for this couple ~ full of energy and love!

What better way to start a getting ready party than with a toast in beautiful robes as gifts from Jenelle!

Now both moments above and below speaks volumes about the special relationship that Jenelle has with her Mom and Dad…

…and the two images below ~ a defining moment as Father and Son celebrate with a celebratory greeting ~ one that I think has been in the making since Carlos was a young boy!

Now the moment Mom lays eyes on Dad and the Bride…

The mantilla draped around the shoulders of the Groom and the head of the Bride symbolizes the unification of the couple.

I write often about the importance of the partners that I am privileged to work beside at every wedding and the role the  entire team plays in creating a successful event ~ here is Eric Trelles of ET Events as he escorts Jenelle and Carlos!

The joy expressed during the Father/Daughter dance needs no words ~

And the music that Jose Betancourt and his professionals that comprise Junior’s Entertainment Group are without parallel in energy and polish in creating an electrifying party!

And finally you have the amazing talents of Jose Zaldivar of Fiction Events creating just the tight ambiance at the Coral Gables Country Club!

Enjoy your wedding planning and give us a call as we would love to create an amazing experience for you too!

Thank you Roy….it’s always a pleasure working our Art next to a superb professional as you certainly are…thanks again!!

As a Miami wedding photographer I get to photograph a lot of great weddings and this week it’s Loren and Philip’s turn to tie the knot! They wanted to express their engaging relationship in the neighborhood where they live and where Philip proposed ~ South Miami Beach!

We started our engagement session at the iconic Joe’s Stone Crab ~ this is what Loren affectionately describes as their place!

I can tell you that photographing these two engaged set the stage for a great wedding day experience and I can’t wait til this coming weekend!

You can tell that these two love each other and have a joyful playful vibe!

Flamingos, palm trees ~ South Florida style!

Hmmm…Is Philip distracted? No, he was just playing with the camera and Loren ~ a sense of humor is a wonderful thing!

Now I know that Loren loves this image as it’s her Facebook header image…

I just love this image ~ for me it really says it all ~ the love and excitement just flies off this photo! The ring and bracelet are a perfect touch…

So you know that this weekend I’ll be at Loren and Philip’s Four Seasons Miami Wedding celebration!

Stay tuned for more amazing wedding images!

Liz + Joe  ~  Married

Mandarin Oriental Miami Wedding


I am an admirer of your beautiful images. I discovered you last year at school when a classmate spoke of your website. Ever since then I have come back, time and time again, mainly because your images make me smile. The little flower girl with the huge brown eyes melts my heart. I love the happy old man near the bottom of page 6 too. You have a way of capturing people’s joy.”

Today I received a little note that did my heart good ~ to know that as a Miami wedding and portrait photographer for over 25 years that my images not only touch the lives of my Brides and Grooms, the parents of a newborn child and the Grandmother admiring a family portrait of her Children and Grandchildren that I have photographed but they touch other hearts and souls. So it’s with delight that today I share and hopefully inspire you with the Liz and Joe’s Mandarin Oriental Miami wedding! Enjoy!

The moment above is that look when a Groom gets a glimpse of his future wife for the first time!

Details are everywhere!

You gotta admit that these are some of the coolest cufflinks that you’ve ever seen! They are the letter keys from antique typewriters ~ with the letters,  the initials of the Groomsmen.

The beach at the Mandarin Oriental is an exceptional tropical location that is the epitome of a Florida beach wedding!

A stunning ballroom decorated by the amazing team at Always Flowers

Be inspired!
