We do not take photos or videos during lunch or dinner, except in some exceptional moments. We take a break from the first dish served food until desserts come out. The pictures and videos of people eating don't go well. It is better to give them their space to enjoy.

Exceeded ALL Expectations
The moment I saw Jose's work online, I knew he would be the perfect photographer for my cousin's bachelorette bridal party photo shoot. But, what really sealed the deal was his prompt replies EVERY time I messaged him. That was such a breath of fresh air! Being that we are from Colorado organizing a shoot in another country, good communication was key. Jose is also one of the most kind souls I've ever met and after just two minutes of shooting with him, all the girls in the bridal party were expressing how much they loved him and his amazing assistant. They were both so incredibly patient, open to any suggestions for different shots, extremely professional, easy going and outrageously creative. On top of all of that, they made us girls feel so comfortable, which allowed for us to feel confident and beautiful in our shots. When he'd share a quick view of some of the shots he was taking, we'd all gasp in awe. The lightning was incredible, the angles were amazing and he captured the essence of us all so well! I literally can't rave enough about Jose. I wish we could take him to Colorado with us! If he lived here, I'd have him shoot every milestone in my life. I'm so blessed to have come across his work! And, he's inexpensive! I appreciated not feeling like we were being taken advantage of. Payment was made very easy online and I also appreciated that. Thank you so much for making this experience such a wonderful one for my cousin, the bride to be, Jose. She can't stop talking about you, your assistant and the shoot. Book him TODAY! You will not regret it.
More than happy with José's work Definitely the best photographer we had, we felt confident with his team, his very father job, he gave us many suggestions of poses to make them beautiful. Very grateful for his dedication and the passion he put to work.
We are very happy with the final result of our video and photographs. José and his team are very professional, they listened carefully to what we wanted to project and they achieved it. Thanks for everything, we have the best memory of our wedding.
He is interested in doing the best job possible. Excellent relationship, which is more than a customer, you certainly win one more friendship. I had the opportunity to be one of the first clients and I have seen the evolution of his technique, he dedicates time to make all the shots with an ideal angle and a perfect play of lights. Passionate about nature and their work, the couple can decide where the session will take place and also has known places where they can do the work. In addition, within the package, the realization of the video of the love story was included, in which you tell Pepe how they met, the beginning and development of the relationship, until the moment of the delivery of the ring. He imagines the story, gets excited to the point of suggesting scenes from the video clip and edits it in such a way that he transmits to the guests the story you want to tell them about your relationship. Now, with almost 4 years of marriage and an ongoing baby, I can't wait to make a new session now of pregnancy and, of course, for the renewal of vows and for any social event.
I loved the work done, the photo shoot on the beach made it super fun, my photographer ended up super soaked with water and sand, capturing the best shots of us, he managed to represent in each photograph the love that we have for me and my now husband. In the church every detail of the ritual was captured, he did not care and he threw himself in the belly taking the best angles and immortalized feelings that just by looking at the images you go back to live. I highly recommend it, it is someone very professional he and all his team. He was always aware of every detail since I contacted for the service.
