    Wonderful as usually. Maravilloso.

  2. Emily Heizer Photography

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy to see these two lovebirds back on here again! I loved their wedding photos, and of course, no one could have done it better, Jose! I’m also so proud Tamera decided to share them again- I recall the negative comments they received, which were wildly inappropriate and completely wrong. Standing up against those ignorant remarks is brave and a necessary step for our next generation! Congratulations on the baby- he’s beautiful!

    PS: Love them all, but favorite is the close ups of Tamera in the chair. :) This is at San Ysidro, right?

  3. Sawyer Baird

    Jose, this makes me want a baby. I don’t need a baby…

    SO great, as always :)

  4. Tuscan Sun Photography

    Jose, you are such an inspiration for me, thank you for sharing your beautiful work. Keep up the awesome sessions, Leo.

    I’ve never much been one for the tropics, but wow. I mean, WOW. I did a wedding in Palm Beach this year, and it was stunning. I’d just never been anywhere like that before and it was wonderful. I feel the same way looking at these. I can feel the warm breeze on my cheek. That’s just so special. So lovely. Oh, someday I will find a love that will make me want to run away and sleep on a beach like this! Some day. :)

  2. Johnny

    Beautiful work as always, bravo Jose!!

  3. Oscar Rellán

    Lovely photos!! congrats!!

  4. E & B Woodward

    Dearest Jose, you are exquisite! We are in love with the photographic narrative!! You are truly one of a kind in your ability to capture expressions of love! Quite remarkable.

    I love, Love, LOVE that cake. It’s so wonderful. I also love when you post early evening images during receptions. How you work with ambient lighting is just stunning. I’m continuing to work with couples to shift their timelines towards more agreeable lighting conditions, as you advised back in 2010 at WPPI! Such a great experience! :)

  2. Rici

    Gorgeous!! LOVE the windmill image! It´s like a poem.

  3. alessandro ferraro

    Every time your pictures is simply amazing! Alessandro

    Magical and tender story. I love it
