As we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our little girl, we would like to share a sneak peek of Annie’s in-studio maternity shoot. You will usually find Annie on the other side of the camera but this is too big of an event for us not to document! We had tons of fun utilizing different studio light techniques and keeping it simple. Just Annie and her baby bump!
Although we love shooting beautiful outdoor sessions, there is something timeless and classic about studio photography. Lately we have had the pleasure of capturing moms, dads, newborns, and kids in our spacious studio located in the Miami West Kendall area. Not only are the images gorgeous, we can also guarantee that the South Florida weather will not be an issue in order to capture your precious milestones. If you’d like to find out more details, simply fill out our contact form here.
We at Photography by Santy Martinez have been working hard to capture special memories for our clients and we thought we’d share a few of our own special moments with you. As many of you know, we are expecting our baby in just a few short weeks and we couldn’t be happier! We are so grateful for all of the family and friends that gathered together at our Baby Shower to join us in celebration as we wait for our little girl! It is so wonderful to know that our baby is going to be surrounded by so much love and support. We had fun chatting, laughing, and just being silly. Please check out some of the images captured by our Open Air Photo-Booth … it sure was a big hit at our party! Just as our clients would receive, we have a full gallery of all the funny faces and big smiles captured that day. The same photos that our guests took home with them on a quality, customized 4x6 print. It’s been great looking back at the images!
Spring is already here and 2016 has been busy for us at Photography by Santy Martinez! Between weddings, shoots, editing and capturing smiles in our Kendall studio, our team has been working hard. It's always nice to take a few minutes and reflect on those memorable moments by sharing them here on our blog.
If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen snapshots of our European trip last summer. One of the most stunning places we've been to on this planet is Santorini, Greece and it is no wonder why Vania and Jean chose this location for their wedding day! The day was full of emotion and fun... And as the sun began to set the two privately exchanged their vows on a chapel rooftop overlooking the cliffs and the Aegan Sea. We were honored to be asked to capture their intimate wedding in such an exotic locale. It was truly a beautiful experience that exemplified romance!
Please enjoy some of the stunning views we captured on their big day and stay tuned for more blog posts coming soon!
Engagement sessions are always a ton of fun! Whereas the wedding day’s focus is often spent interacting with family and friends, the engagement session is a time where the special focus is solely on the couple. Leaving all worries behind for the duration of the shoot, it is a time for the couple to really spend quality time with each other, stare into each other’s eyes for a bit longer, and just laugh together. This is also a unique opportunity for us to take our time learning what makes the couple smile and building that trust and comfort that is imperative for the day of the wedding.
We always recommend the couple to incorporate things that they love to do together. In Erika and Junior’s case, it was fishing! We had a great time with this couple at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in Key Biscayne. They were right in their element with their surroundings which made for great images! We look forward to spending time with Erika and Junior soon at their upcoming wedding.
We feel privileged to share the following images from Laura and Jorge’s dream wedding! With such a fun group by their side, it was easy to have a good time capturing all of their special moments. Laura and Jorge got ready at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables where they were able to sneak away and see each other before they said their vows at St. Hugh Catholic Church in nearby Coconut Grove. Once they said their I Do’s it was definitely party time at the beautiful Coral Gables Women’s Club. Did we mention this group was fun? It was endless laughter and dancing as they celebrated their new life together. Please join us as we congratulate Laura and Jorge!
