{Stephanie and Alison} Miami Quince Photography | Jungle Island

When we first were contracted for Stephanie and Alison’s party, we were so excited after hearing about their party details. Secret Garden was the theme, which is a perfect theme for a fifteen year old girl. The usual Secret Garden theme is soft, with romantic colors, but the twins didn’t want your average Secret Garden styled party. Wendy, from Event Factory Group, designed the party with vibrant colors surrounding the whole room. The girls are fun, and love loud colors, so Wendy was able to perfectly mix in the Secret Garden theme with what the girls wanted. It almost felt as if it was a Secret Garden meets Betsey Johnson feel. Everywhere we would turn, there would be something new we would see. From the different centerpieces, to the dessert table, to the cake… there was so much detail that transformed the Jungle Island Ballroom to a magical Secret Garden fairytale. If the decor wasn’t enough to set this party apart, the entertainment definitely was something to talk about. Not only did they have an African band come in and get the party started, but they also had a killer DJ, DJ Kaos, and MC Doug, who really brought the party to life. If that’s still not enough, they had an Hora Loca with people on stilts, passing out fun party gear to all the teens + a percussionist who let the twins come up on stage and rock out on his drum set. We’ve never seen so much liveliness in one room, in one night. Stephanie and Alison had an amazing night that everyone will remember! To see their amazing portrait session, CLICK HERE!

{Leirys} Miami Teen Photography | Day to Night

Categories: Teens and Seniors Tags: + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
02.03.2015

Leirys wanted to completely change her looks to show off her different styles throughout the day. We began with a soft/romantic feel at one of our favorite beach locations. We added our favorite swing, which allowed Leirys to show off her sweet side. The beach looks were natural, I loved the soft waves on her long hair. Leirys was most excited about the beach pictures and after seeing her photographs she said her favorite look was the red dress on the beach. Us on the other hand can’t decide on a favorite look. The last look showed off this teen’s edgy side. Leirys is gorgeous but she is also very photogenic, we fell in love with her shoot from beginning to end. Take a look at the shoot and notice the dramatic differences in all the looks. We totally showed off all of Leirys’s beauty and personality.

PS introduces our Glam Shoot

Categories: Ramblings of a photographer Tags: + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
01.07.2015

We have such an amazing friendship with the vendors we work with, and one of those special vendors we adore is Isa Amazega. Isa is the owner and talent behind Makeup and the City. We recently got together with her for coffee and came up with amazing ideas. One of those amazing ideas was to collaborate on a concept similar to what Glamour Shots did in the 80’s. Although, now we look back at those dramatic black feather boas glamour shots and think “Eek! What were we thinking!) You have to admit the concept was great. As women, we love to be pampered and to feel beautiful; so who wouldn’t want to get glamorized and have professional photographs taken! The idea was to take the glamour shot concept and put a more natural spin on it, no boas and a new name- Glam Shoot! Take a look at the results from this collaboration. We are so proud of the outcome. We love the idea of empowering women and enhancing their beauty. A Glam Shoot is simple and tasteful, its something that every woman should experience. We also were very lucky to have two gorgeous and successful woman as models for the shoot. Both Rosy and Marianne are beautiful inside and out. They both are successful business women who do it all and do it well. Isa did makeup and hair for these two ladies, creating different looks that were equally beautiful. I also love that Rosy and Marianne chose clothing that made the photographs perfect for use as headshots for their profession if needed. Overall, we love Glam Shoots and can’t wait to do it again!!!!

What can I say about Nicole’s shoot.. She was such a natural in front of the camera. From beginning to end, Nicole had this model-esque way about her. She knew how to work her face so well. We did four very different looks for Nicole. We started at our secret spot, with a very natural look. Her personality is laid back and she’s a little quiet. We love that she can be serious, yet so beautiful. For her second look, we had first wanted to do a bohemian look. But once Nicole showed us the feathered head-piece, we knew it was going to be the perfect look for her, seeing that she looks like a real-life Pocahontas. Nicole’s third look had a very clean, airy feel. White sand, light blue dress, jeweled headband. It was all monochrome, with just her black hair. So gorgeous! Lastly, Nicole got a new Range Rover for her birthday, which she really wanted to be in the pictures. What better spot than downtown Miami?! Nicole was in her element during this last look. She absolutely rocked it! Hair and Makeup —-> Makeup and the City

How do I start to describe Jessica and Steven’s wedding?! There is so much to love about this day. Let me first tell you that Jessica’s cool and calm demeanor was refreshing. We never know what to expect when we first open the doors to the bridal room. Many times we walk into chaos, as you can imagine. Steven’s room was no different with laughs and drinks filling the room. The getting ready portion of a wedding day is so important, although, some clients opt out of having us there. It really is a great opportunity to take intimate and candid photographs. Some of my favorite pictures from this day was of Jessica’s dad seeing her for the first time… we totally got chocked up. Moments like these are little surprises that as photographers we are so happy to be able to capture. Being that Jessica is in the wedding industry, we had a hunch that the decor at the Bath Club would be out of this world. We were right! The ceremony, reception and cocktail hour decor gave off a romantic and vintage feel. I adored the unique little touches, like the unexpected felt bird hanging out on a twig, or the cute little phrase on a pillow at the cocktail hour. They even had a sign in area that consisted of guests signing a globe. Like I said, I can go on and on about the details. We felt like ninjas with cameras trying to capture every linen, table, chair, flower, everything. What I think was most impressive was the distressed wood wall that was designed by Jessica herself. The wood walls were found on each end of the ballroom, one behind the sweet heart table and the other behind the DJ booth. This specific piece not only enhanced the room and showed off this grand ballroom, but it also had shelving that allowed for more florals; you must scroll down and see for yourself. The dinner had an intimate feel, although it was a large wedding, the lighting added the perfect touch. The night ended with a huge surprise! Before I say the surprise let me first tell you that Jessica and Steven are die hard Miami Heat fans, so much that we even included the Miami Airlines Arena in the engagement session. Jessica, being the coolest wife ever, arranged for Burnie (the Miami Heat mascot) to surprise Steven. Picture this… Steven and Jessica dancing, when all of the sudden the DJ changes the music and raises the volume, and with an arena voice the DJ announces everyone to look at the stage. Burnie jumps off the stage, darts towards the couple, tosses Steven over his back, and simultaneously confetti guns launched thousands of paper confetti onto the dance floor. It was such a fantastic feeling being on the dance floor, the energy was contagious. It was epic!

{Isa} Miami Teen Photography | Summertime Sadness

Sadly, summer is over. But, it’s still steaming hot, so let’s pretend we’re still in bathing suit season! This teen, Isa, pulled off this fun, summer glam look so well! With a little help from the inspiration gods (Pinterest), we were able to come up with a cool/different concept for Isa. This shows off so much personality! We love nothing more than a teen who is ready to be cute and bubbly (with a little sass). Who says you can’t be glamorous in a bathing suit? Props were a must. We came up with the idea of having lots of jewelry, a flamingo, a coke bottle, and the cool “All about the Benjamins” money towel. So cute! We worked along side “The Glaminator” herself, Isa Amezaga, from Makeup and the City . We had such a blast! Can’t wait for our next shoot filled with personality and fun.
