CEO & PHOTOGRAPHER & CINEMATOGRAPHER
My fine arts background intuitively informs my photography. I treat every image like a canvas, every subject like a muse and as a result, I create truly iconic, photojournalistic images. I work with my clients to portray beautiful, authentic, emotive documentary-style pictorials. I am also an expert photo retoucher with vast experience working on notable magazine covers and fashion campaigns. Having experience as a model, photographer and retoucher, I am able to bring out the best in my photographs, realizing the vision of every image from origination to completion.
The short of it: I studied Studio Art and Photography and graduated with a BA from FAU. I did not just pick up a camera. I studied the true craft of taking photos. Once I graduated I found my niche in weddings. Wedding photography is not for everybody; However, If you have a passion for it and the personality then you will love it and fit right in. I LOVE MY JOB EVERY DAY. Other than photography I find myself outdoors a lot, chasing my five dogs and roaming at our local beaches and parks, soaking up that warm Florida weather.
Ms. Colmenares is a Boston and South Florida based photographer. She Studied at the England School of Photography and Documentary at the Cambridge Learning Center where she expanded my knowledge in courses such as Lighting and Portraiture Photography. Gabriela spent years as a documentary-style professional photographer shooting fine art, editorial and wedding photography. She has a unique ability to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera, allowing her to capture joyful and intimate moments in a way that always feels fun and relaxed.
JOE AND PRISCILLA PENEIRO
PHOTOGRAPHER & CINEMATOGRAPHER
From when I was young I was always an adventurer, wanting to experience the diverse and vibrant faucets of life! Over 3 years ago I indulged in the explorer side of me and made the big move halfway across the world from Bolivia to South Florida. Needless to say, it was a barrage of different sights, smells, and experiences! I soon found that the city hummed with so many cultures, backgrounds, and identities that all had one common yet powerful tie: love.
I have had the incredible honor of capturing not only American but also Korean, Indian, Italian, Irish, and Chinese weddings. Each story was so unique and touching, there are so many moments of vulnerability, elation, and togetherness. Even after over 100 weddings, I still find myself tearing up and my heart swelling from the joyous celebration of pure love.
Joe and Priscila Pineiro, husband and wife wedding videographer duo located in South Florida, are dedicated to creating the ideal luxury experience for all of your media needs.
PHOTOGRAPHER & CINEMATOGRAPHER
My father had a passion for photography, though he was a Nikon man he loved to teach my sister and me about all things lighting. His favorite thing to do was grab extra colored film and pair that with an external flash and long shutter speed to create colorful night time scenes filled with light trails. This sparked a love of photography in me that got a dim when I found graphic design in college.
After graduation I quickly got a job as a Digital Specialist for a dining contractor in High Point, NC. Here I not only was in charge of all social and digital media, but also the programs food and product photography. I quickly came to the realization that I am in fact a Canon girl and not Nikon, sorry dad! But, nevertheless I fell in love with photography. I quickly learned this is what I wanted to do with my life.
So, if you have any questions or want to learn more about me and my photography, don't hesitate to get in contact! Lets book a shoot!!
