So now that we've announced that Flora Bloom Photography will be a husband and wife team, you might be wondering what this means for our clients. 

A Dedicated Second Shooter for EVERY Wedding

First, Amanda and Miguel will photograph every wedding together. This means that our clients will not have to pay extra for a second shooter to be included. I call that a win! The fact that each and every wedding will have the same two people photographing it means that our clients can look forward to more consistency as well. Also, as Miguel learns and grows, he will no longer be a second shooter. Our clients will actually have two lead shooters!

Miguel is Learning Video!

Another SUPER exciting aspect of bringing Miguel on board is that we hope to be able to offer videography services to our clients in the coming months. We are incredibly thrilled about this! Soon, Flora Bloom Photography may become Flora Bloom Photo + Video. We can't wait!

Amanda Will Begin Shooting Film

Since I can count on Miguel to get the shots digitally, I have been able to branch out into film photography a bit more. I absolutely LOVE the look of film for wedding photography, and having Miguel there has allowed me to pursue this new medium. I'm so happy to be able to offer film for all of our clients now! Here are a few of my favorite film shots of recent clients.

Sometime in the next week or so, Miguel and I will tell you all about our new equipment. We just made the switch from Canon to Sony Mirrorless, and we are loving it! I also got a brand new (to me) medium format film camera that I have fallen head over heels in love with. I mean, look at that first image above. SO GORGEOUS!!!

Orlando Wedding Photographer - About Miguel


Hi everyone! I know Amanda teased that I would be making my introduction soon, but before I jump right in I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported her and her amazing photography along the way. You guys make this endeavor possible, and it means the world to me (and I’m sure to her too) that my wife can do what she loves and has the amazing support of some awesome people like you!

All that aside, I’m sure that you guessed from Amanda’s previous post (check it out here) that I’m here to introduce myself. Hi… I’m Miguel, Amanda’s husband. I’m going to be joining the team to become Amanda’s dedicated second shooter. You’ll see me around the blog and you’ll see some of my pictures around on here and the website. 

Some things about me. I love stories. As an extrovert, I would say that my favorite question to always ask people is why!  I love getting to know people well, and I think the best way to do that is to ask why. Asking why always brings out a great story. My love for stories also stretches into movies and TV. Movies are how I get away for a little while and recharge. Lately though, I’m finding that I’m appreciating TV shows more. Shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld are captivating and able to tell a much more robust story than movies can with the time constraints.

I also love being challenged! Things like brain teasers, Sudoku, and word puzzles are a great way to keep me distracted and entertained. Video games present a fun challenge, but when I’m looking for a way to be challenged and be with friends, board games are where I go. Playing an intense game of Settlers of Catan (just Catan now I guess) forces me into new strategies that I never would have tried if not for the special set of challenges I find myself in in every type of game we play (and boy do we have plenty). 

Wow… Looking at that above I sound like a HUGE geek, which, truth be told, I am. But, I do get out too. Nature and wildlife are one of my earliest passions. My education is actually in biology. In fact, the desire to chronical my adventures when out in the forest and finding new (to me) animals is what first put a camera in my hands. From taking my first pictures of turtles and salamanders, to joining Amanda now, I’ve learned a lot. Amanda has been an awesome teacher, and we are ready to give you all a great photography experience. We can’t wait to tell you more about what me joining the team means for you! Keep a look out for our next blog post, and, again, thank you all for your support! I can’t wait to work with you all!

Orlando Wedding Photographers - Husband & Wife Team Announcement!

I've mentioned this in passing a few times, so I guess it's time to make this blog-official! (It's kinda like Facebook official, right!? I’m going to go with yes.) My incredibly awesome and talented husband Miguel has decided to join me and become my dedicated second shooter and possibly more (More on that later!). We are SO EXCITED for this change!  

Here he is with our oldest (Lucas) at Christmas 2016. Aren't they so cute!?

Over the next few weeks, we will talk more about what exactly this means for Flora Bloom Photography. There will be a few changes happening, but I promise they're all good! (Think more perks for our clients and better service over all). You'll get to hear a bit from Miguel himself, and he is dying to talk to you all! I will even share some photos he's taken since he's been shooting with me, which I am super excited for. He's done a really great job so far, and I am so proud of him. Seriously, he's wayyyy better at this than I was when I first started working with clients. He blows me out of the water.

I can't wait to see where this new adventure together takes us! For example, we’ll be heading to Wedding MBA in Las Vegas later this year. I’m super excited for that, and not just because it happens to fall on our 5th wedding anniversary week. 

Anyway, I don’t want to give away too much because we’ll be covering a lot more about this change in some future blog posts. So I’ll just leave you with this (AMAZING) picture of Miguel with our younger son, Jonah. Seriously, we have the cutest babies! (I might be biased. I kinda don’t care.)
