Last Thursday I went to San Juan Bosco Catholic Church to photograph Anita and Anthony’s wedding rehearsal. The group did great at the rehearsal and gathered afterwards at Pueblito Viejo Restaurant and Tavern in Westchester where they enjoyed delicious Colombian food. Anthony surprised his bride with a Mariachi serenade. Anita and Anthony shared with their family and friends and expressed their love and gratitude to them with many gifts. Stay tuned for photos of the wedding, which by the way, exceeded everyone’s expectations. Congratulations to this beautiful couple and their family.
Last Thursday I met Alex and Vanessa at St. Hugh Catholic Church in Coconut Grove to photograph their wedding rehearsal. The wedding party paid close attention to Father Garcia’s instructions and when we left the church, everyone felt ready for the”big day.” We then headed to the Garcia’s home where the family had prepared a fun and colorful “Luau” to start getting the couple ready for their honeymoon in Hawaii. The party was lots of fun and family and friends shared a very special night together excitedly looking forward to the wedding. On Saturday my husband and I attended the wedding as guests. Please make sure you check Maloman Photographers’ website at www.maloman.com for what I am sure will be beautiful images of the wedding. Vanessa and Alex are not only a beautiful couple, but very dear to all those who are lucky to have them in their lives. I hope you’re having a fun and memorable honeymoon. Congratulations!!! Here are a few from the rehearsal.

Just a note to wish all the mothers in my life a very Happy Mother’s Day. That goes for my beautiful mother, Yeya, my sister Ana, all my aunts, cousins and friends. I am thankful to have such wonderful women around me who inspire and give me strength. Here’s a photo we took on Friday while at the “Biltmore’s Afternoon Tea” which was my niece Annette’s mother’s day present. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks Annette!!!

I met with the Garcia-Tuñon family at Merrie Christmas Park last Sunday to take pictures of Andy for his second birthday and also some family portraits. It was a very pleasant afternoon and we had a good time running after Andy, who is an absolutely beautiful and very energetic little boy. Here are a few of the pictures from the outing.
Last Saturday I went to St. Joachim’s Catholic Church where the Barbier family celebrated their youngest daughter’s baptism. The ceremony was intimate and beautiful. They kept me on my toes, as it was all done in Creole, it’s a good thing I’ve been to many Catholic baptisms because I had no problem keeping up and capturing all of the important moments in my photographs. After the ceremony we went to St. Joseph’s Parish Hall on Old Cutler Road where family and friends enjoyed a fun reception. I was happy to be a part of Abigail’s baptism and I enjoyed the time I spent with this group of beautiful and loving people. God bless Abigail!!!
