Elena contacted me a few weeks ago about our free engagement session offer.  She asked if  I’d be interested in doing a “day after” shoot
in lieu of the engagement shoot since her wedding day was right around the corner…. needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity!
We decided to make it a “post-wedding/trash-the-dress” shoot! SO FUN!
We met at a beautiful park on Sunny Isles beach at 8:30am. Here are some of my favorites!

    I’d love to see your workflow. These almost look HDR!

    Congrats on the new pad…and I’ll keep an eye on your blog!ReplyCancel

So I posted an add on my favorite wedding blog recently offering free engagement sessions.
To my surprise I received over 10 emails inquiring about the add! Needless to say,
I’ve booked just about all of them and even booked 2 weddings so far! Yay!!!!  I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
I had the pleasure of shooting the first {free} engagement session this weekend! Dalie and Mike are from Boston
planning to get married in Miami next year. We planned an early morning shoot in hopes of catching the sunrise on South Beach.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the most cooperative but we still managed to get some fun shots! Here’s a few of my favorites.

  • jaime - Love the brightness and colors here! Beautiful shots!ReplyCancel

  • Diego - Beautiful sentiments expeessrd.In reality physical beauty is so much a fiction of our imagination . . . if you really think about it.I believe it is a derivative of the psychological concept we know as classical conditioning.Reflect on it . . . what do you think . . . where does your standard of beauty come from?ReplyCancel

_mg_1846 Nylin wanted to wish you a glorious mommy’s day. She is so lucky to have such an amazing mommy. We both appreciate not only the time and efforts you put into being amazing mommy, but the time and effort you sacrifice.

We hope you enjoy your first mothers day, we promise to be good today and not be fussy!

We love you SO-SO much!

xoxo – Phillip & Nynie

Warning… this is going to be a loooooong post!
As you’ll see from the images below, our trip was awesome! Many, many thanks to Kristin and Ted
for taking such wonderful care of us! The  Coyaba resort was quaint and beautiful and the staff was super friendly.
I highly recommend checking it out if a trip to Jamaica is in your future plans.
I wasn’t sure what to expect since we never got a chance to meet Kristin prior to showing up in Jamaica.
I couldn’t get over how easy it was to work with them! I say this because I received an email early on from Kristin
warning me about how self-conscience she is in front of the camera… um, I beg to differ!
She (and Ted) rocked it!  I seriously don’t think we shot 1 bad photo of them!
So… without further adieu, here’s some of my favorite shots from the trip.
