“On the birthday of your love affair” ~ Happy anniversary Natalie + Jose!

Natalie + Jose  |  Anniversary

Coral Gables Congregational Church Comber Hall Wedding


“An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.” ~Author Unknown

We spend so much time thinking about the wedding details and the experience that we want and have on this amazing day but we don’t think about the days, weeks and years after ~ the anniversaries! Two years ago today Natalie and Jose pledge their hearts to each other at the beautiful Coral Gables Congregational Church ~ two year have flown by already! But it’s only a tick on their clock of life. Not to long ago,  I met a man at a wedding that introduced me to his Bride of 65 years…when I commented that she must have been a child Bride he responded with ” I was 12 and she was 8! ”Being a Miami wedding photographer, I realize that on this day I am capturing their love story, their history! That the images taken this day will be looked upon with tears of joy, laughter and memories reaffirmed. Their children and grandchildren will ooh and ahh at every detail and they too will dream of their time. I wish for every couple whose wedding that we photograph that they look back on their photographs with the same pleasure as they look toward their future! I can’t help but think that these images of joy, delight and exuberance will not at some point in their lives affirm their devotion and love for each other.

“Here’s to you both – a beautiful pair, on the birthday of your love affair.”

Engaged! After I Do ~ It’s the TO DO list!

So you’re engaged ~ Congratulations!!

As a Miami wedding photographer for over 25 years – I have had the wonderful opportunity to capture the love and wedded moments of hundreds of couples. Telling their story – knowing that for generations my legacy is what my eyes have captured and those that gaze upon the photographs will get a glimpse of their amazing experience. But these years of insight also give me an opportunity to engage in so many wedding planning details from the very beginnings of an engagement that I thought I would share with you some great advice.

A quick note that each engagement photo below is a link to their engagement session Blog post ~

You said YES  ~ called your Mom, best girlfriends ~ Grandma and shared the great news! In less than 24 hours you purchased the latest wedding magazines and you start to put your wedding dreams into motion. Now some things should be on your to do list ~ you may have already thought about some of these, but I would imagine that there are a couple here that may surprise you~

  • Enjoy being engaged! Savor this time and realize that the wedding is another chapter in your Book of Life.
  • Get the ring sized perfectly as you wouldn’t want to lose it!
  • Get the “rock” insured!
  • Set a time of year that you’re thinking about getting married because you will be asked ~ When is the wedding? Be prepared with a response like “We like the idea of a fall 2013 wedding?” or “We are planning on an early 2014 date!” This also will give you a sense of direction in your planning.
  • Now how do you see your wedding day? Are you thinking black tie formal, a casual beach soiree, vintage, modern? I have spoken of the value of 5-6 simple words that best describe the kind of wedding that you both want to have. Those words can range from formal to casual, traditional to contemporary, elegant to relaxed, fun, crazy, sophisticated ~ you get the idea but think of what makes this wedding a reflection of you and your fiance. I think you’ll find decision making regarding anything to do with the wedding a little easier.
  • Inspiration! Aside from the magazines, check out Pinterest! Here you can search for every desire and you’ll find it ~ create your own Pinterest wedding page and “pin” the things you love. These are great tools to share with your florist, photographer, cake designer ~
  • Create a budget! This is a big one as it will help you determine all the other elements of your wedding.
  • Start creating a guest list and ask your parents whom they would like to invite ~ realize that this list is going to be quite large at first but it’s a starting point. Once you have this preliminary list created you’ll have the opportunity to review and decide just how big a wedding you want. Wedding Wire has a great guest list builder to get you started!
  • With your budget and guest list started you can now start looking for a venue that can accommodate your budget and guests list. I know that you have many choices for searching but if you take a good look at Roy Llera Photographers Blog you’ll be able to take a look at hundreds of weddings ~ where they took place, the details i.e. the dresses, flowers, cakes etc.

Now you have been to a few weddings but did you take notes? Probably not, so this is where a wedding planning checklist comes in and I have found a great one! ~ Wedding Wire Wedding Checklist. This will give you a great sense of calm knowing that with this great tool you’ll be able to manage your dreams, track their progress and even help you delegate these projects to your Groom, Maid of Honor,  family and friends that no doubt will want to help. And it’s free!

I think this is major ~ seriously think of getting a wedding planner! They’ll relieve a lot of stress, guide you in thoughts and ideas that you may never have considered, help you find your ideal wedding team and allow you both to enjoy your dream wedding.

So who you are going to trust to capture all this amazingness! Selecting a Miami wedding photographer that you are passionate about should be high on your list of to dos. You may have noticed that I am a fan of Wedding Wire and I wanted to share with you our page on this great wedding resource Roy Llera Photographers Reviews on Wedding Wire Here you will read what our couples are saying about their experience with our Studio!

You saw their engagement session above now below you can get a glimpse of their Miami wedding experience! Each photo below is a link to their wedding experience ~ Enjoy!

Miami Wedding Engagement ~ Alejandra + Andreas are about to be married!

Alejandra + Andreas  |  Engaged

Coral Gables Congregational Church Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove Wedding



I absolutely love photographing couples in love and the engagement session is a great way to not only capture the energy that they have but it gives all of us a great opportunity to get to know each other. Now these guys are getting married manana at the beautiful Coral Gables Congregational Church with a Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove celebration that I know is going to shake the Grove like never before!

Now this engagement session experience is memorable! The first time we met at the lovely Bonnet House in Ft Lauderdale after the first half hour it started raining monkeys and manatees! We pushed on and created a great set of amazing images in spite of the rain…but I wanted to do more and graciously the Bonnet House gave us the opportunity to come back and it was worth the return. By the way, there are the cutest monkeys that live on the property ~ wild and loose!

I get to work with an amazing team of professionals ~ Monica Ciffoni at the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove, Mayrelis and Lourdes of Lourdes Milian Productions, Ubi of UBI Music Productions, and Ana Paz Cakes !

So stayed tuned to some Facebook awesomeness the night of the wedding as I’ll be tagging these guys with an album of images immediately!

Now “engage” me in your moments!
