On the car ride to her photo shoot location, Dany and I talked. She was wrapped in a cloud of fluffy while tulle; feeling beautiful and a little apprehensive like every  fifteen year old girls who gets to be princess for a day in the customary cuban fashion.

We talked and covered boys, college, classes, and friends in a short twenty minutes. Although it always boils down to the same topics; I love having a glimpse into these girls lives, their distinctive personalities and their fresh, reachable dreams. Dany in particular is kind of quiet and shy but has big plans, and I have a feeling she may just make them real.

Here are my favorites from her session:

I had the pleasure to photograph two lovely girls in Miami this week. They are both very sweet ladies and I had a great time setting such pretty subjects against some of the most beautiful scenery in South Florida.

Stay tuned for more of these two sessions. Here is a little taste of them:

With this couple and me it may have been love at first sight, we clicked from the very beginning and there just isn’t much I haven’t already said about them.

Maybe except that Kristy is one of the funniest people I know. Yes, she is beautiful, and she is just as beautiful on the inside, not for one moment taking herself too seriously, or demanding to be the center of attention, but naturally radiating that genuine happiness that draws everyone to her.

That draws Chris to her.

He lead, managed, took care of details behind the scenes on his wedding day, making sure everything was perfect, not to impress, but for her. So that his bride would have her perfect day. He has this innate ability to give and put others first.

Kristy, Chris, it was such an honor to be part of your day. Here are my favorites from your beautiful wedding:

I love it when one of my sweet nice couples refer to me their equally nice friends. Brittany, Justin and I hadn’t officially met in person before their engagement session today, and I was so glad to find that we hit it off immediately and had an absolute blast.

The chemistry between these two is off the charts! As I uploaded their images from our time together and worked them, I couldn’t help but feel the sparks flying between them.

Brittany and Justin: Thank you so much for allowing me to orchestrate and document this celebration of your commitment to each other, and be witness to your bond. Keep holding on to one another tight!

We started at the field where Justin coaches football. After a lot of persuasion, he has finally turned his better half into a Missouri fan…

Brittany you looked so cute in your Missouri University tee it’s not even funny. :)

I believe the following set is my favorite:

Then they glammed it up several notches for some shots out on the town.

There is more! View the complete slideshow of Brittany and Justin here.

It was colder than usual for a May afternoon yesterday, when Marie, Shane and I met for their engagement session. But the chilly weather was just the perfect excuse to snuggle up for these two lovebirds. Shane has this remarkable ability to make Marie laugh and I was delighted to see them interact and capture their undeniable chemistry.

This couple is extremely crafty and detail oriented. Every time we get together I get exponentially more excited about their wedding, that is going to be packed with thoughtful details and tokens of their relationship. I have a feeling it will also be a very emotional, special day and I can’t wait to document it.

Here is their very sweet sneak peek.

I adore this couple. They are one of the sweetest, kindest, most down to Earth people I have worked with. Kristy is a southern girl with a modern twist: polite, outgoing, and always with a positive attitude, but she is also extremely humble and compassionate. Chris is just laid back, go-with-the flow, and a complete gentleman. He’s told me on a few occasions how excited he is to marry his girl and I just love him for that.

I was shocked to see how nervous they were at their photo session. They are not crazy about being photographed and were happy that they were getting to practice before their wedding. The way these turned out I say you guys passed the test ;)

Did I mention I adore these two?

Chris and Kristy are both braniacs. She is is doing her doctorate in pharmaceutical science and he is a high school math teacher. So we started our session with a little scholastic fun!

and Chris is a baseball junkie and coaches little league, so we headed to the ball field for some more shots…

Chris, after seeing the following shot you shall no longer be nervous in front of the camera ;)

Kristy, you are simply breathtaking…

Lalala…love

Something that I didn’t expect is happening, and I am loving it.

My husband, second shooter, and partner in crime gets kudos, accolades even, at weddings. I hear things like:

“I couldn’t have spent those 30 minutes waiting with anyone better than you, John. Thank you.”  from a groom. And at the wedding prior to that one after the bride, microphone in hand, made a toast to her parents and bridesmaids, she proceeded to say: “and John, you rock!”. Haha!

The truth is, while I develop these amazing relationships with brides, at the wedding I am so focused in getting every shot, every moment, that John steps in to offer emergency assistance, bond with the couple, offer emotional support, and throw in the occasional, totally necessary humor to lighten a tough situation.

He doesn’t want to be a full-time photographer, and hates it if I treat him like one. But he supports me and shares in this dream that I am living; and for being my rock and right hand I am forever grateful.

Ana is right, my husband rocks!

The small bridal cottage at Meadowlark Gardens was a whirlwind of garment bags, feminine laughter and floral perfume as I returned from photographing the groom and his family. “West is dying to see you” I told Meagan and her mega-watt smile beamed unabashedly, and nervously. The day was racing up to this moment when they would see each other in private for the first time. Trying to approach it calmly, delaying it almost an impossibility. Meagan and West are so drawn to each other, almost magnetically. This energy permeated through their first look, and their beautiful wedding this past weekend. Looking back through the photos I could feel it in every image. The way they look at each other just radiates love.

Here is a small peek into their day…

Some couples just have an energy about them. They gravitate towards each other even when in a crowd, they laugh together incessantly, and they build each other up, fuel each other to become better and stronger.

I was touched to photograph one of these couples on their wedding day last weekend. He also happens to be my beloved cousin and you may remember their engagement session here. The wedding was, in one word, emotional. It’s hard not to be when you are witness to this kind of celebration, the type that reminds of you of what’s real and important in life.

Without further due:

Love Ana’s shoes!

Ana and Roldan opted to see each other before the ceremony which I love. It gave them a chance to connect and have a private moment before their guests arrived.

The wedding party…

FUN!

I didn’t know my little cousin had these moves :)

A very emotional father -daughter dance…

I was working in Miami last week, and my first session there was very unusual for me, because it was a family of adults.

Jennifer, the oldest daughter contacted me a while back about photographing them. This foursome is very close-knit despite the kids being fully grown. Jennifer is very passionate about her parents and very protective of her little sister, and she reminded me in a way, of myself. I love that I was able to capture this phase of their lives.

Here are my favorites:
