Alanna and Jon were such a beautiful couple to photograph. They had a very intimate/elopement style wedding dinner and hired me to document the portraits portion the day of at Vizcaya. Alanna's priority was to have day time photos in a beautiful location with all their guests/family. I loved this idea, because no matter how small or intimate a wedding is, the photographs are always going to preserve the memories and the feeling of becoming husband and wife. Choosing a beautiful location like Vizcaya was also a great treat for the groom's family from Boston who had never been before. (And Vizcaya is always a good idea!) After the portrait session, Alanna and Jon left for their private family dinner reception to celebrate their marriage.

Testimony from the bride:
Karla came highly referred by one of my best friends, and it was love at first sight of her stunning portfolio.
Karla was a dream to work with from start to finish. She guided me in making the most important decisions in advance of the photoshoot, so I could trust her to navigate on the day of. In this way, she gave us the gift of fully enjoying that special time with our families. With only a few hours to shoot and the threat of rain upon us, Karla skillfully hit every mark while leaving room for real life to occur naturally. When I look at our wedding photos, I remember the magical afternoon we all shared. This is her specialty- she expertly captures the art in the magical moments.
We are forever grateful for the amazing energy and artistry Karla added to our special day. She is our photographer for life!
