Engagement Session: Steven, Andres and Truffle at Hollywood Beach

Andres and Steven are getting married!

And I could not be happier and for a few reason... 
You see, I have known Andres since he was a little boy, we were neighbors 
back when we were ... 8 years old?  WOW time flies!
Years went by (very fast) and we both ended up moving to the US.  
Andres was in New York city for a while and later he moved to South Florida 
to be closer to his family.
Then one day my mother came to visit and she mentioned that Andres was in Fort Lauderdale 
and we called him right away and had him over .. I still remember it was a lovely visit.
Move forward a couple of years and my mother was visiting again 
and this time Andres's mom was in town too!     Well, that was perfect!  
These two beautiful ladies have know each other all their lives, 
so of course we had to get together, and so we did!

We met, talked, and talked some more and after a few laughs I learned that Andres was engaged to Steven and then I realized why Andres looked different, and I mean different in a very good way.  Andres was calm, he looked at peace, as if he had found his place.. of course, Andres was in love!
I remember telling mom how excited I was about Andres and I figured they would be getting married soon.  I was excited for a lot of reasons and one was very selfish, I must admit, I really wanted to photograph Andres' wedding... but how in the world am I going to convince him and his finance Steven, when they were not even looking for a photographer???  ;-)

Well, I am truly overjoyed about being part of this beautiful celebration.  
I will be a guest and also their wedding photographer.  
I am about to be part of history in the making and 
it is beautiful and I am honored and so proud to be part of it.
Love conquers all, YES! 
I can see how they find comfort in each other, 
I see understanding, acceptance, admiration 
and a love that radiates.
I cannot wait for their wedding day. 

Here are a few photos from their engagement session.
Please come back in a month for pictures of their wedding day.
Until then...
Much much love!

Florida Wedding with a Gin Bar, Swinging Wedding Cake and Lawn Games Friends and family of Lora and Tracy came from all over the world to witness their uniting love.  The Living Sculpture Sanctuary  in  Florida  was the perfect setting to honor the blend of their South African and Puerto Rican cultures, as well as their love for nature and adventure. While  rain on a wedding day  isn’t everyone’s first choice, Lora and Tracy thought it only added to the romance of the day. Guests gathered under the clear tent of the venue for the couple’s wine wedding ceremony with an arbor of flowers and lanterns propped behind them. “We each selected a wine for each other based on the characteristics and surprised each other with the wine, partaking in it and roasting our past, present and future,” mentioned Lora. A true family affair, their son played a trombone duet and their niece sang a memorable melody. Once it was official, the two exited as dried leaves were tossed in honor of their love.  In

October is for FAMILY!

 It is already October!  This year has been a big blur, right? Not only 2020 started super fast, but then with this COVID19, pandemic and all the restrictions, it has become a blur of "stay home", "stay safe", but now we are starting to incorporate some social activities, keeping our social distancing, of course!  Wearing mask, washing hands and keeping it safe. The goal is to stay healthy and adjust to this new lifestyle or new normal, whatever we call it is just what we have to do! October is the beginning of my family portrait sessions and 2020 is definately a year to celebrate our family!  WHY??  Well, we made it!   We are here and we must celebrate the times we stay in quarantine and survived each other (lololol) We are safe, we are healthy and we are loved, by our families, our friends and neighbors.  Because in the middle of this crazy times, we have become more "human" more appreciative of each others company, we began to understand each other a bi
