#1 – Brittany and Gray – Finito, That’s it, Last One, Swan Song, Sayonara, Goodbye!

I’m very thankful to have had my last wedding ever be such a special couple as Brittany and Gray. Brittany baby sat my kids when they were little and she was younger. Her parents are amazing leaders in our church. The pastor who did the wedding is one of my best friends. All the vendors involved from the make-up artist (Marz) to the DJ (Ubi) have been industry friends for so many years. I was able to photograph this wedding with my business partner, Paul Thomas, who has been a loyal friend for so many years. I really have to say this is a very special wedding to wrap up a career.

The couple wanted to pray together before the wedding but without actually seeing each other. The bridesmaids helped position them back to back so they could hold hands and pray. The tension of holding hands, praying, exchanging gifts and talking to each other minutes before the ceremony but without seeing each other was powerful.

I feel like I should have more words. Something deep or insightful to say after shooting over 300 weddings. I’m very thankful. Thank you Brittany and Gray for letting me be a part of your special day!

#6 – Stephany and David – 5 more to go

Stephany and David had a beautiful, emotional, blast of a wedding.  Getting ready at the Al Capone suite at the Biltmore aint too shaby and first look that was super emotional. These last couple of weddings are making it harder and harder to stop photography. Another amazing couple. I love all the candid moments that happened organically during this day. Ceremony at the beautiful Granada Presbyterian and reception at the Coral Gables Country Club.

Thank you Stephany and David for letting me be a part of this!

Deering Estate Wedding – Lisandra and Kelvin

Had a blast with this couple photographing their engagement session in the University of Florida and was glad to be a part of this gorgeous wedding. The weather was questionable all week but on the day of the wedding the sun came through and we had nice blue skies and cool breeze. Lisandra and Kelvin chose the classic Deering Estate at Cutler Bay, Miami for their wedding which is always one of my favorite venues. Check out all the beauty!

Special thanks to Olga Torres from Events on a Budget for planning this amazing wedding!
