Jose was a savior for our wedding day in New York! He stepped in on very short notice and we are so happy things worked out the way they did. Jose was understanding and compassionate. We have repeatedly been told that our photos look like they are straight out of a magazine. I'll have to practice some restraint in printing them because we love them all. I would absolutely give Jose more than 5 stars if I could!

Jose is simply amazing. He put together a beautiful shoot for my girlfriend and I who had never had our photos taken professionally before. Within minutes Jose had morphed from a stranger I had never met into this amazing friend, support, encourager, and someone who knew exactly what to do to get Rachel and I in the “zone”. The pictures we had taken were absolutely breathtaking and something that we will cherish forever.

Barcelona Wedding at Montserrat

WHAT ARE COUPLES LIKE YOU SAYING?

I don’t know where to start because we cannot describe with words what we feel for you. Life brought us together by simple chance and this is just incredible; you first took our photographs in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona - from there we built so much trust in you that with closed eyes we wished you would be at our wedding. A simple photograph could be captured in a few seconds, but this is not the case. It is your opus, your artist’s eye, the trust you convey and still more, the way you play with light. You’ve entered our hearts to never leave.

Everyone from our family and friends were impressed and thrilled with them.The candids and the portraits are both amazing. We are in love with them all. His use of lighting and angle are spectacular.

My Approach

Simple wins. Most important is the story between two people in love and the people that love them. I focus on this beautiful element.

People first. I get to know people genuinely. I am part of your team and I create with everyone.

Different is cool. I embrace our world of diversity and the million different ways you can celebrate your day. Love is for all people.

Clear as day. I communicate, clarify and double-check. The time to have the map is before the journey.

Honest to you. Never forced. Photographs should represent your energy. That’s what you’ll look back on years from now.
