Miami Wedding Photographer – Brian + Valeska’s Wedding at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach

When you think of all the finest Miami wedding hotels, the infamous Fontainebleau has to come to mind. As a South Florida Wedding Photographer it has always been one of our most favorite venues to photograph a South Florida wedding. And for so many good reasons! The service is impeccable and the food beyond delicious. Leading the catering department is Arlene Ruiz, the Director of Catering. Arlene, a newlywed herself, is an absolute dream to work with.

As good fortune would have it, we had many hands on deck to produce this amazing wedding day. Gabrielle Dann and her staff, led the way as the Wedding Planner. And the night would not be complete without the enormous talent of Beth from Command Performance, who had the guests on their feet all night long.

The stars of the evening were the beautiful bride Valeska’s and handsome Doctor Brian, both surrounded by their bridal party of great friends and many family members. It was truly an exceptional South Florida wedding!

But as anyone knows that lives in our sunshine state, September is our rainy season, and this year’s Season was one of the wettest on record. Needless to say, we were a little concerned. Valeska only wanted to see her fairytale ceremony take place on the exceptionally picturesque beachside lawn. So within just a few short days before the wedding, the entire team of professionals prayed to the weather gods for a dry.

On the wedding day, as we drove South on I95, we were surrounded by the darkest clouds and heaviest of rain.   Did the weather gods not hear our pleas? We could only imagine what our bride was thinking.

As we approached the hotel, to our surprise, the clouds miraculously disappeared. Although the weather app showed surrounding clouds and rain, the call was made to continue the ceremony outside as planned.

Well the weather gods certainly favored our stars, as the outdoor ceremony was flawlessly brought to fruition, and without one drop. In fact, the entire cocktail reception was held outside without any weather factors of concern. Our couple continued their dream wedding day coverage with exceptional Miami beach photos and superlative interior hotel shots.

A few of my favorite shots are the ones on the historical Fontainebleau staircase and shots off the mirrored wall. Beautiful Images of a beautiful couple!

South Florida Maternity Photographer – Maternity Photos in Pompano Beach for Alexis and Jeff

As a South Florida Portrait photographer there is no greater privilege for us than to shoot the beginning stage of a new life.  What makes it even better is when its for someone special in our life.  I’ve know Alexis and Jeff for many years now, before they even tied the knot.  It was not only a great surprise to find out Alexis was pregnant, but an even more exciting moment when she told me she wanted me to shoot her pregnancy photos.

We brainstormed together to find just the right portrait location in the Pompano Beach area and theme.  Alexis told me of the things that were most important to her, like the books she collected for her and Jeff.  The more we talked, the more it made sense to do a picnic celebration theme at Tradewinds Park.  As we shot the images and showed them to Alexis and Jeff, her excitement just shot right through me.

It was an amazing afternoon, with a gorgeous Florida sunset, which created just the right warmth to our collection of images.  Next up, the baby photo session!
