Jessie + Jason  |  Married

Photographed By Roy and Laura

Miami Vizcaya Museum and Gardens Wedding



I knew from the moment I met Jessie and Jason that there was this connection ~ and so it was amazing to have photographed their Miami Vizcaya Museum and Gardens wedding! From the  questionable weather (Thank you God!) to the amazing team of professionals working together to create the perfect wedding experience for family, friends and the blissful couple ~ this union had everything going for it! Well play the slide show above and you’ll see what I mean!

I love getting creative and looking for great ways to tell the story and capture all those important details that a wedding possesses! So this ring image is a double affirmation for me as Jessie said yes upon the proposal and “I do” during the ceremony and beautifully displayed on the soles of her shoes!

The Miami Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is the ideal place to have a romantic blissful wedding! Not only are the gardens and the architecture a delight to experience ~ in the eyes of an experienced photographer it’s a palette of infinite possibilities to create amazing!

It is said that the eyes are the windows to the heart and there I see Jason!

I made mention earlier of the amazing team of wedding professionals that brought Jessie and Jason’s wedding dream to reality. First of all we start off with the awesomely talented team at A Joy Wallace Catering, Production and Design! They not only created an incredible menu of scrumptious food, they also designed and created the floral artistry as well as pulled off this wonderful wedding to perfection! Family and friends were rocked to the core by the band Higher Ground and video was captured by the talented team at Broadway Video!

Deborah + Jeremy  |  Married

Temple Judea Miami Wedding and Ocean Club Reception



Planning your wedding should be a blast! You get engaged, you run out and buy a magazine or two. Your Mom, Sister, Grandmother and best friends chime in…you’ve been looking at a few too many wedding blogs and it can just be too much ~ too many choices, ideas ~ too much inspiration! So how do you make this wedding yours?

Quite often I ask a Bride if she and her fiance have sat down and discussed with each other what kind of wedding they want to have. Quite often that questions is met with a brief pause and usually I hear “no we haven’t”.

So to make this process a little less stressful, I suggest that they have that chat and choose maybe 4-6 words that describe their idea of their unique wedding experience. 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 a little easier.

Today I want to share with you Deborah and Jeremy’s Temple Judea Miami wedding! Their wedding had so many beautiful moments to capture. But it all started the moment that Deborah met Jeremy ~ then the parents met the girlfriend/boyfriend and then there’s the ” I want to marry your daughter” discussion and so began a series of special events that bring us to their wedding experience!

Once a love story that’s right begins its journey it’s always in a state of perpetual motion ~ so once Jeremy proposed, Deborah responded in the affirmative (see their engagement session) then the phones calls to Mom’s, girlfriends and best of friends are placed and the wedding planning begins in earnest!

The Rabbi and witnesses had just left the Rabbi’s study after the signing of the Ketubah. I find myself alone with Deborah and Jeremy. For me this moment is so wonderful! It’s a time on their wedding day where it’s just the two of them, quiet, pensive and you can see by Deborah’s expression joyful with the anticipation of the moment their are united under their Chupah.

A wonderful sendoff as the happy couple leave Temple Judea Miami ~ I like to think that the hundreds of bubbles floating around are wishes of joy and love from each and every guest for the newlyweds.

The wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Temple Judea in Coral Gables and was performed by Rabbi Edwin Goldberg. The celebration followed at the Ocean Club on Key Biscayne. Floral decor was designed by Raffi of Petal Productions and the party was an amazing celebration with Drew T Productions keeping everyone on their toes all night long! Now keeping this all flowing in harmony was the amazing planner Robyn Bruck!

So planning your wedding can and should be an amazing experience! Finding the right team to take your wedding dreams to reality successfully is a must! Look carefully, ask for referrals from those that have had the wedding experience be they a friend who just got married, the Mom who helped planned her daughter’s wedding, that amazing wedding planner that knows the value of a great team working together in harmony to bring it all together perfectly. You won’t be sorry doing your homework and choosing wisely!

Looking forward to being on your wedding dream team!

Victoria + Randy  |  Married

Cathedral of St Mary Miami Wedding And Moore Building Reception




Every wedding and event I have the good fortunate to experience and capture with my eyes and feelings is for me a unique moment in time. Unique in the exclusivity of the couple that I am photographing ~ their love story ~ their love of family and friends. True that these are common factors in many weddings but as individual as there are grains of sand in the ocean. My pleasure in capturing weddings that make each one a joy to photograph is the individuality of each Bride and Groom and what they bring to their wedding story. Now let me share with you what makes Victoria and Randy’s  Cathedral of St Mary Miami wedding and Moore Building reception so unique!

Let me start off with stating that it takes a team to execute all this awesomeness and Eric Trelles of ET Events to see that it went off without a hitch ~

Now you’ll need to see the slide show to understand ~ but the day started with me being introduced to Claymore! Now Claymore is Victoria’s baby ~ pooch! Why is it that couples get a dog in the beginning as if maybe their practicing for parenthood?

Next ~ It’s not everyday that your wedding ceremony is performed by an Archbishop! Yes, Archbishop Thomas Wenski of the Archdiocese of Miami conducted this wedding mass at the beautiful Cathedral of St Mary in Miami!

Now when we arrived at the very cool Moore Building in the Design District Miami all were amazed by the beauty and WOW factor of this very chic location!

Now what took this wedding over the top was the food! Victoria decided to surprise Randy with his favorite Chef John Sorensen of Sorensen Catering in Napa Valley. Now Chef Sorensen is famous for his Lobster Feeds in Napa Valley. I know your wondering what’s a Lobster Feed…well there are no plates, dishes or utensils well except for these claw crackers to break open the claws with and the really cool bibs so your black tie attire doesn’t get stuff on it! Now it wasn’t just great food ~ the surprise at the end was churros from Victoria’s bridesmaid ~ Nicole Valls whose family owns the worlds most famous Cuban restaurant ~ Versailles!

Now a few more details to make this Blog post complete! Invitations were created by Invitations By Leston, Floral Design by Avant Gardens, Transportation provided by Meilan Limousines, Cake by Edda’s Cake Design, Music by DJRobDinero

Now if you’re planning a wedding ~ call me as I would love to capture that which is yours alone!
