Alyssa and Israel are high school sweethearts that met when they were only 15 years old! Their story is a true love story that began at Coral Reef Senior High School and led them down the aisle this past weekend. Together, they are the definition of soulmates. From the moment they met as kids, they had that connection that led to friendship and romance. They have grown up together and motivated each other to be the amazing people they are today. Their wedding day was years in the making and was such a beautiful beginning to the next chapter as husband and wife. We feel so honored to have been there to capture those memories for them!
We met Alyssa and Israel back in January when they booked us for their engagement session and December wedding date. December is among the most popular month’s to get married in South Florida so we encourage couples to book us as soon as they book their venue to ensure that we have their day available. We only shoot one wedding per day and once we are booked we have to send the dreaded email stating that the day is no longer available. It’s never really too soon to book us – we have already booked our first wedding for 2020! Luckily, we were available for Alyssa and Israel’s big day and what a lovely day it was!
They could not have chosen a more perfect day to say “I do”. Their ceremony took place at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Boca Raton followed by a gorgeous reception at The Addison. It was a daytime wedding which was full of love, delicious food, and dancing – so much dancing! A good time was had by all. Everything was spectacular – from the anticipation of seeing each other as they got ready early in the morning to the awesome bubble send off by their friends and family. We hope that you enjoy this blog post as much as we enjoyed capturing every moment. Congrats Alyssa and Israel!

We first learned about Yvette and Diego back in December when we were running our Complimentary Engagement Session contest. We found out quickly that they have a strong network of friends and family. They received tons of votes daily! Although the outcome was not in their favor. We made sure to give perks and incentives to all of the couples. Yvette and Diego luckily did not hesitate to use the perks. We say lucky because it was really a delight to meet these two and we are really looking forward to their wedding. Their wedding date is in November of this year (2017) and it was smart of them to book right away as it was the last Saturday in November we had available!
We have had too many sad encounters with couples who contact us for their wedding date and we are already booked. We only shoot one wedding a day and limit the amount of weddings we shoot in the year in order to bring our clients the absolute best experience we can provide. It is our goal to do this for each of our clients. It brings us so much joy to know that we will be able to offer this experience for Yvette and Diego.
A little about the couple – Yvette recently moved back to South Florida after living in Atlanta, GA. She is now continuing her career as a news producer at WPLG Channel 10. Diego is a co-owner at Temple Street Eatery in Ft. Lauderdale where he is also chef. As you scroll down you may notice Yvette brought her vintage typewriter and Diego brought his notepad of recipe ideas. We used these as props to express their interests. Individually, these two are just cool, interesting people. Together, they are the couple you want to hang out with and not want the evening to end! There was so much laughter during their engagement session that we can only imagine how much fun these two must have on a daily basis.
Their session took place at the beautiful Hugh Birch Taylor State Park in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This park offered a gorgeous backdrop for their photographs. This state park is an oasis of preserved tropical hammocks just steps from the buzz of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. It is a perfect little escape for any nature lover or anyone just looking for a bit of tranquility. It is always exciting to shoot in a new location. We were pleasantly surprised at all the pretty spots there were to shoot at this park. As lovely as the setting was, the focus of each session is always the couple. Catching their personalities and love for each other in every image is the goal. It wasn’t too difficult to do during this engagement session as it is clear that Yvette and Diego are crazy about each other!
We are so grateful that they took the time to enter our contest and reach out to us to shoot their wedding. As we just closed another contest, we have started communications with our most recent contestants that are also looking into locking in their wedding dates. We can’t wait to learn more about them and capture their love story too!
We hope you enjoy the following preview of Yvette and Diego’s engagement session as much as we enjoyed capturing them.

South Florida is famous for its sunshine and beaches. Linda and Gabriel took advantage of this for the backdrop of their beautiful wedding at The Palms Hotel in Miami Beach. From the moment they started getting ready until the very end of their night, we had a fun time capturing all the emotion and laughter of their big day!

It is always a pleasure to capture a sweet couple from start to finish on their wedding day and Ana-Mari + Alex were no exception. The excitement was in the air from the time she started getting dolled up until they celebrated the night away with friends and family. Their ceremony took place at Coral Gables’ historic Church of the Little Flower and was followed by a stunning reception at the Ritz Carlton in Coconut Grove. The details in their wedding décor was only rivaled by how exquisite Ana Mari and Alex looked on their big day!

In the very heart of Coconut Grove, the Cruz Building is a tri-level venue that offered the glamorous back drop for Ana and Johannes’ wedding day. From the grand staircase and the ornate iron worked balconies to the magnificent stained-glass windows and bright outdoor terrace, this place did not lack in elegance. Ana and Johannes were able to really take advantage of all of the beauty that the Cruz Building had to offer by opting to do a First Look prior to their ceremony. Every aspect of this wedding was romantic and simply extraordinary… just like the couple themselves!
