The Light that Shines through You and Your GuestsReviewed on 8/30/2012 Jessica F
What does it mean to have a highly qualified professional photojournalist as your wedding photographer? First of all, Jose does the background work on the story before he shows up to the scene. Jose met with us and thoroughly explored the grounds for shooting possibilities, so we got some beautiful shots that showcased guests in the surroundings that made our venue unique. During the meeting he asked how me met and he called us both individually to hear what we liked best about each other. This enabled him to understand the kind of shots that would capture our personalities. Our posed shots were fantastic, but the shots we treasure are the candid ones. Jose has a way of capturing the mellow moments (my dad and my uncle riding together on the back of a golf cart during set-up) as well as the high-intensity ones (my bridesmaid opening her gift and reading her card, my husband and I gazing at each other during the ceremony). He also did a great shot of all of the guests after the wedding using his wizardry. We can zoom in and out of it and see all of our guests! I’m the bride, but you can ask anyone at our wedding if we had a great photographer, and they will say yes. People, including me, liked having him around, and I hate having my picture taken! I don’t think you can find a photographer who will make you or your guests feel more at ease, and this is important on such a fast-paced day. We received several disks of photos from Jose. The edited photos are fantastic and many, and we have not even finished looking through the unedited photos yet. This is testament to how hard Jose worked. He took many shots and then had the eye and the editing ability to pick out the best ones. My husband and I are grateful to Jose for photographing our wedding, and we recommend him whole-heartedly!

Best choice we madeReviewed on 4/09/2012 Mike S
So imagine that you're in your fine clothes, all the people in the world who matter to you are nearby, it's a once-in-a-lifetime occasion (hopefully), you're a bit (maybe a lot) nervous, and you want everything to go just right. You know, your WEDDING! And you want those special pictures of the two of you, along with those of Aunt Sadie ripping up the dance floor. Well, Jose is going to give them to you. Here's why. First, pictures of the crowd. Jose's training as a photojournalist makes his eye for capturing those moments that collectively define the event spot on. We can look at his pictures of our wedding and feel the energy in the room as we felt it that night and, by the way, see things we never got to see that night. He tells the story in pictures so that you can relive it again. But the real magic is when it's just the two—I mean, three—of you. This is when you and your honey are supposed to be intimate, yet natural, all while some stranger with a big camera is standing 10 feet away. Sounds tough? Would be with someone else, but not Jose. Jose makes the special effort to get to know you in advance by insisting on a lengthy meeting beforehand (we had dinner out with him). So, on the big day he's not a complete stranger, I mean, after all, you've spent a couple of hours together. But obviously, it's not just those couple of hours. It's who he is. Smart, caring, down to earth, full of good suggestions, but honestly wanting to hear what you have in mind. Lets you know ahead of time when he's going to want to rush you away for that great shot when the light in the sky is going to be just right. After a very short while, it's easy to feel comfortable with him both personally and professionally. It all just flows and pretty soon, it's just the three—I mean two—of you and you can loosen up and get those pictures you'll love having forever. So give Jose a call and get to know him. If you don't choose to use him as your wedding photographer, it's probably because you decided to invite him as a guest.
Happy NewlywedsReviewed on 3/08/2012 Kathleen W
For a couple that wasn't even planning on hiring a photographer, we very happy that we did. With roughly 4 weeks till our special day, Jose came through for us. He was receptive to what we wanted captured and happily attended both of our events. We especially loved receiving a sample of the images within 12 hours of each event.

We were fortunate enough to have our wedding photographed by this vendor, and we couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out: beautifully composed, mostly unposed, extremely individualized. Overall, they just feel very "us." Jose really took the time to get to know us (and our families and friends) and made sure our story was reflected in every shot. And maybe even more importantly, he was a wonderful, reassuring, unobtrusive presence throughout the wedding. He has our highest recommendation.
