A Blessing to Become a Godfather!

Today I became a father all over again!  I was blessed an honor to become the godfather to my right hand man and best friend Marco and Bobbie’s three sons, Silas, Allessandro and Luca.  I was truly touched when Marco asked me a few months ago to be the godfather of his three lovely boys.  As you well know, Marco has been a blessing to me and my family for almost a decade and truly the most loyal friend I have ever met.  Bobbie and Marco, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me into the lives of your amazing young men.  I promise to take care of them just like my own.  I am truly humbled and blessed to have all of you in my life…  Thank you!!

Grand Lucayan Wedding Photographer | Freeport Bahamas Wedding Photographer | Tieasher and Dante’s Wedding, Day One

When I first arrived at the Grand Lucayan in Freeport, Bahamas to photograph Tieasher and Dante’s wedding, I feed my soul.   This is when I wrap myself around the island to document and tell a story through my lens.   After shooting this amazing backdrop, I enjoyed a delightful dinner at the historical Luciano’s restaurant with cinematographer Chip Dizard from Baltimore, MD.,   The lobster portofino was simply amazing, while the pasta was al dente (crisp to the bite).   The hospitality rendered by Dante and Tie was truly first class!  While on the plane, I got a chance to chat with Dante’s awesome family and get better acquainted.  I knew this is was going to be an epic destination experience!!!   More to come!!  Thank you Mia for this amazing capture!!
