Ashley and Brian – South Florida Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek

We’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a long time. I remember clearly meeting Ashley and Brian and Brian’s mom at our consultation nearly a year ago. It may be a coincidence but I think I’m seeing this pattern where the more likely one of our brides is to have her mom or her fiancee’s mom come to the consultation… the more likely the bride will be to effortlessly dodge the inevitable curve balls on the wedding day.  That observation nonwithstanding, we love it when we meet with brides who are being helped by mothers or future mothers in law – I guess we find those clients to be the most aligned with our very strong emphasis on family in our coverage priorities.

The wedding, at the gorgeous Addison location did present Ashley with plenty of opportunities to panick due to schedule issues serious enough to force us to split the family portrait sessions into THREE chunks… yet Ashley was the image of calm.  Brian is indeed a lucky man…  he got himself a gorgeous bride with nerves of steel!

Here’s a sneak peek of the wedding.  Enjoy those photos.








I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. The full set will be ready within the next 5 or 6 weeks.

Deanna and Yomi – Baby Bump in Miami – Miami Pregnancy Photographer sneak peek

Sneak peek from an amazing baby bump session with Deanna and Yomi.

We shot the whole session on the beach in Miami and it was tons of fun. The amazing outfit Deanna is wearing was … made by her! How epic is that?!?!?!

So did you see the “shoe” shot? Well… notice that side-by side there’s a shot with baby’s shoeprint next to daddy’s shoeprint? Well… you’re going to have to wait for the full post to see how amazing daddy’s and baby’s shoes look next to each other 🙂

It was such a pleasure to work with you guys. Anyone who sees the photos can tell that the camera loves both of you (can’t imagine how adorable the little one will be) but we got to see how nice and helpful and kind you were, and that’s a gift your little one will enjoy even more.

Mari Ann and Harold – Miami Engagement Photographers – Sneak Peek

First time out after the system switch. Yup you read it here first. Gone is the Canon Gear, we’re Nikon shooters now. Doesn’t matter to the clients… both systems are amazing, we just switched because it made sense for us, the Nikon gear seems to fit better with my way of doing things 🙂

Had a great engagement session with Mari Ann and Harold in Miami. Before I say anything else I have to share one image:

Now I know I’m not supposed to toot my own horn or anything… but

… damn that photo is HOT!

Last shot of the night too… a Steve Jobs if you will… you know “… one last thing”  – I even titled it on the spot in my head when I took it “Angels and Demons”

We finished the session in an INCREDIBLE apartment owned by a friend of the couple, which overlooks the city of Miami… here’s a shot from the window a few minutes before I started shooting them against the city lights.

Guys, what can I say… It was awesome being able to spend time with you guys. We really appreciate that you pretended that everything was going super-smoothly even though due to some “we’re new with this Nikon stuff” things were much much clunkier than they usually are! You were awesome. We hope you enjoy the photos and can’t wait to show you more and shoot your amazing wedding!

Natalie Bridals at Vizcaya – Miami Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek

Bridals at Vizcaya… is there a more perfect setting in all of South Florida to ahve your bridals? Sure… Bridals at the Old Spanish Monastery might be another great option, but if the weather is cooperating and you don’t need the safety-belt that the old Spanish Monastery offers, nothing compares to Vizcaya’s variety of options… ah if only the administrators at Vizcaya decided to offer a limited higher-cost permit that allowed shooting for an other hour and a half or so… just as they escort you out… that’s when the light is best!

Natalie looked stunningly regal against the Vizcaya backdrop. She’s got that simply elegant look that might remind some of one of our most popular first ladies… yeah I’m talking to you Andy… better get started on that political career I guess – LOL.

Ok, no more words… just our gorgeous bride in this sneak peek.

Krystin and Jim – Live Engagement in Miami

engagement photography of Krystin Gokey and Jim Ryan at Vizcaya and South Beach in Miami, FL from Alessandro Di Sciascio of Di Sciascio Photography, South Florida wedding photography from Fort Lauderdale wedding photographers.

How to even begin to contain my enthusiasm?  A great guy, a gorgeous lady with a sense of humor and enough “in on the guy geekyness” to let her play with the boys, a fantastic photographer hired to help make this a smashing success and three stunning locations.  And that’s not even considering that this was our very first “live” engagement!

Thank you Jim, for entrusting us with this most special of moments.  I sincerely hope to have exceeded your (but more importantly Krystin’s) expectations 🙂

The opening shot above was taken from an undisclosed location in one of the most dangerous areas of Miami (yes really) which however has the benefit of showcasing Biscayne bay’s fantastic’s Skyline.

The photos below were shot at Vizcaya
