As I mentioned previously, I used to work with Mauro back in 2000 – 2001 at a web design firm. He truly was one of my favorite people to work with, and when he contacted me after spotting that I am now a wedding photographer on LinkedIn, I was really excited about getting to spend his big day with him & Mariely. Unfortunately, fate got in the way. I had major surgery with a 6 week recovery period just 1 week before their wedding. The doctor said that I could attend the ceremony, but I wasn’t supposed to take photographs while there.
Oops. I sort of failed on that one. The above photo is when Mariely spotted me with my camera. I tried two times to make myself just sit down, but I couldn’t do it. I kept seeing things I wanted to capture. So I photographed the ceremony, but didn’t go on to the reception. Elaine stepped in for me, along with Jesus of Decca Photography. I let the two of them take charge for the getting ready photos beforehand and the reception photos afterwards, but it was fun joining them for the ceremony itself. (All of the following photographs were taken by me.)
Slideshow coming soon of their big day! Congratulations again, Mariely & Mauro! Best wishes to both of you!
