    A wonderful and romantic wedding day.
    023 made with a beautiful lens, I love this lens effect.

    Omgoodness, what a stunning couple! For half a second I thought I knew her, but she’s just gorgeous! :)

    The bows and arrows? Are those table numbers and seating assignments? That is so clever! I’ve never seen anything like it! I love that! I love all of the classic white with these tiny pops of color. It feels very Mediterranean

    The vases are just lovely too and I love the table runners over the white table cloths.

    Wonderful, wonderful day!.

    I love the iKat table clothes.. so stylish.

    Hi! I love your photos and been following you for a while now :)
    I’m beginning in the photography world- and i’ve always wondered what preset or actions do you use to process your photos. It’s so beautiful!

    Thank you!

    I’m going to have to get a thesaurus to find more word to compliment your work Jose! Love everything about this shoot – wish the weather here in Chicago was like that more often.
