ABOUT COUTURE BRIDAL PHOTOGRAPHY
SOUTH FLORIDA'S TOP RATED WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS
So most about pages on wedding photographers websites you'll come across talk about falling in love with photography at a really early age. This happened to me as well, and I began my journey into photography at the age of 16. As an avid hobbyist, I learned and practiced photography as my past time and recorded the events and stories that surrounded me as I grew up.
Well I am now 44 years old and have been a professional photographer specializing in Weddings since 2006. I created Couture Bridal Photography, LLC. When demand for my style of wedding photography took up and I became one of the most in-demand engagement and wedding photographers in South Florida and Puerto Rico. I've also become one of the preferred destination wedding photographers in the United States.
About 6 years ago, I met an amazing portrait photographer who is originally from Miami, but living in New York City. Sandra Balzola, owner of Red Sand Studios and I met on a Professional Photographers Association chat room and ended up working on an engagement session in Brickell Miami in 2015. Soon after Sandra moved back to Miami and we began to work together on my weddings and her portrait photography assignments. We quickly realized our contrasting photography styles complimented each other and a partnership between Red Sand Studios began shortly after to create the ultimate Wedding Photography and portrait photography experience in South Florida.
Sandra is now Couture Bridal Photography's studio manager, 2nd photographer and assistant on my engagement and wedding photography assignments throughout Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, The Florida Keys, Naples and Destination Weddings around the world. I provide Sandra assistance and 2nd photographer duties for portrait clients of Red Sand Studios. This unique and distinct partnership allows clients and couples to experience the most personalized and professional photography services in South Florida.
Sandra is known for a very distinct style of portrait photography that is moody, sometimes dark, yet profoundly artistic in nature tailored to each clients specific style, personality and needs. As a portrait photographer, Red Sand Studios delivered distinct photographic art intended for display as high-end wall art and in custom albums.
Sandra photographic specialty is extremely sensual, yet artistic boudoir photography on-location or in-studio intended to empower all women with beautiful art that highlights their sexuality and sensuality.
I hope you CONTACT us for your wedding photography and portrait photography needs and experience the most exciting and personalized photography throughout South Florida.
