LOVE . . . PASSION . . . DETERMINATION . . .
No dia 26 de Julho de 2013 foi realizado não apenas um simples casamento, mas uma noite de muita emoção foi o que marcou toda a cerimônia com a aliança entre Karine Degani e Diego Cruzado. A Noiva Karine esteve sempre dislumbrante e convicta que o grande dia havia chegado, desde a preparação até a recepção. Enquanto que o noivo Diego, impecável e elegante contando sempre com a ajuda do irmão Luis e dos demais amigos/irmãos em Cristo.
Com a excelente escolha dos noivos para o local do evento, um belíssimo lugar chamado Coral Gables Country Club, associado a uma deliciosa seleção de comidas, sendo ritimadas ao som de músicas cristãs/gospel muito bem escolhidas e adequadas, fizeram deste momento mais que um evento, mas uma celebração eterna da união entre Diego e Karine, onde tornaram-se Um em Cristo.
Parabéns a todos que contribuiram direta ou indiretamente para que esse dia se realizara de uma forma tão extravagantemente linda. Sou grato a Deus e aos noivos pela oportunidade de participar desse espetáculo de emoções e bencãos.
Not literally, but that was the overall feeling on Sunday, November 25th while shooting Stephanie Lawston and Luis Cruzado’s Engagement Photos at Station 2 of the Miami Beach Fire Department. Their fun and carefree demeanor made it easy for me to develop my artistic vision as they effortlessly created scenarios, and were naturals when posing. Their chemistry is undeniable. It shows in their pictures, and shows that their decision to spend their lives together, is the right one!

It wasn’t easy to choose among so many greats shots, the best set to represent this wonderful Engagement Session. We started in Downtown Miami with a Cloudy day (great for B&W pictures). Then we went to Biscayne Bay where we enjoy an amazing view of the city of Miami and the skyscrapers. After that we headed to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum, about 32 miles away. At the start I saw clearly that the couple was even more relaxed, acting naturally and giving strength and beauty to the pictures that we were doing. The upshot of all this is found in the following pictures. Thanks to Victor and Izabela for the opportunity to express on these images my passion for photography and the record of this unique moment in your lives. I had so much fun.
Meet Larissa + Paulo, this couple is getting ready to tie the knot soon. We went to downtown Miami to capture a glimpse of their love for one another. We had such a fun time together, they were up for anything, even the rain!
As we arrived at the intersession of Miami Avenue and Flagler St – Downtown Miami (the point zero of the streets of Miami), we decided to walk a little bit to get know the area.
We took the Miami Metrorail heading towards the Miami Airlines Arena, which is the house of the Miami Heat Basketball team with it’s great basketball players such as Lebron James, Dwane Wade, Bosh…
After that we took the Metrorail again and went to the Knight Center (which is known by the Brazilians as The Bride’s Cake).
Here we took some gorgeous shots.
On Knight Center we got permission to go in the “Sky Lobby” where we enjoyed romantic places that they have there.
This is a beautiful place and they did great!
We tried to explore different angles.
Done??? Not yet!
We came back to our “camping” to change clothes.
Like a movie, isn’t it?
Two things that they love: Play Poker and Starbucks!!!
They’re expecting for the big moment: The Rain!!!
We can call this session for The Engagement Rain!
This is really wonderful!!! Rain and Kiss…
Back to Metrorail again. I’ve been planning to shot in this Metrorail for years.
Now time to go!
I loved photograph this session, was different, flew like a river.
First to God, that inspire me to do this couple of pictures.
Thanks to Larissa and Paulo for patience, help and to be a beautiful couple giving a nice Pre Wedding photo session.
Thanks to Bruna Casagrande to help me a lot with equipment and tips.

You’ve been planning your wedding in your mind since you were a little girl. You finally met the man of your dreams and he proposed. Now you have to actually plan your wedding; setting budgets, finding a venue, making decisions on who to invite, what kind of flowers to have, finding the perfect dress, trying out different caterers, dealing with your future in-laws, the list goes on and on…
And then there’s the wedding photography; the one thing you have left to help you remember your emotions, events and details after the food has been devoured, the band has played, the flowers have withered and the guests have gone home. You soon come to find out that wedding photography prices vary widely. Some wedding photographers charge just a few hundred dollars to show up and shoot, some charge a few thousand dollars and some charge a small fortune. How to choose?!
Truth is, it’s hard to compare wedding photography prices because the numbers don’t always tell the whole story, so it’s important to compare apples to apples.
Here’s a real life scenario:
Let’s say you find 2 photographers who both have a package that cost $4,000.
For $4,000, Photographer A will shoot for 8 hours on the day of your wedding, include an engagement photo session, a framed print, a second shooter and a 20 page 11×14 album.
For the same $4,000 Photographer B will show up and shoot for 6 hours.
Which is the better deal? Well that all depends on the quality of the work and the experience the photographer delivers. What if Photographer A is brand new to the business and has only shot a handful of weddings? What if the album is made by some cheap manufacturer and has a funny smell to the faux leather? What if they take forever to return calls and emails and give you poor customer service? What if their work is average at best? How do you feel about spending that $4,000?
Now let’s say Photographer B does an amazing job for his $4,000. He or she has tons of experience, the images are incredible, you had a blast being photographed and the customer service is top notch. Sure, you’re might have to spend a few thousand more dollars to get a nice album, but at least you will be in love with your images and you’ll enjoy them for years to come. I suggest you are getting better value for your money in this scenario.
I understand that there’s a lot of money being spent in the month leading up to the wedding and there is a lot to consider regarding wedding photography prices, in addition to all of the other vendors you are hiring for your wedding. I often advise my potential clients who are on a tighter budget to invest in the best wedding photography they can afford; get the best possible pictures first and foremost. You can always come back and order prints, albums & other products well after the wedding. (Traditionally paper is given as the first anniversary gift…may I suggest photo paper bound in a leather album?)
Disclaimer: I am certainly not suggesting that just because one wedding photographer has higher prices that they are automatically better. It’s still up to you to evaluate the skills and value provided by the photographers you are considering hiring.
Here is a simple checklist for you to use when trying to determine whether wedding photography prices are a good value or not are:
Also make sure to:
Lastly, I suggest hiring a photographer who is passionate about their job. One who is dedicated to taking the best possible pictures on your day and delivering a remarkable experience to their clients. One who takes pride in the work they do and it makes in obvious for you to see. Invest in a professional who will take care of your memories.
