Patricia and Michael – South Florida Wedding


Before writing anything else, let me just say what a fantastic experience I had shooting this wedding. Michael and Patricia could not have been kinder and friendlier. I had a blast photographing the groom and his attendants getting ready and the day just got better from there.

Patricia and Michael, gorgeous on the outside, awesome on the inside! Congratulations guys!!!

We started out at the “W” in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a good thing we had watches with alarms set to move us along, otherwise that place is a photographer’s paradise… what a gorgeous, gorgeous hotel! That, however pales in comparison to how incredibly cool Michael and his groomsmen were about the shoot. I suggested a playful mocking of the typical “Bride getting reay” shots and they were ALL FOR IT. Ok… cue the photos….

  1. Alessandro you did a great job! I absolutely love ALL of the photos. The groom and the groomsmen seemed to have been a lot of fun to photograph as they prepared for the wedding! I love the shot of his shoes 😉 but they are all great. Looks like a beautiful wedding and couple!

  2. VEry very nice shots
    I especially liked the one of the grooms taken in the elevator,
    If I ever find a person to marry (me)
    I’ll definitely call you!
