What people say

Penny and Mary

“Chemistry between the couple and the photographer is very important in weddings. Rudy is a wonderful person who will really take the time to talk to you about what you want. Mostly taking photojournalistic photos, his style truly captures beautiful moments. As for photo quality, Rudy is an experienced pro who started his career with the film format and has exhibited his works both in Florida and abroad.”

Elizabeth and Justin

“A little over six months ago, Rudy and his wife warmed their way into our lives. In that short time, we have not only come to know Rudy as a beautiful human being, but as an incredibly talented photographer as well. The first time Rudy did work for us, we asked him to photograph our niece’s baptism. As his friends, we expected great service, but his meticulous attention to detail floored us completely. Rudy took time to speak with us and learn what the key ceremonial moments were. He also made sure to speak with the deacon about his limitations within the church, so as not to offend or anger anyone. In short, he showed great professionalism and a genuine interest in putting the best product forward. It was no surprise then, that when the pictures came back, our entire family was delighted! When Justin and I announced that we were getting married, Rudy immediately jumped in and asked if we needed a photographer. Having seen his work before, we knew we were in good hands. As we prepared for the big day, Rudy’s professionalism was yet again present. At his request, we visited the reception site to take test pictures prior to the wedding. We also spoke often about the pictures that we wanted taken and any concerns that we had. Now, after the vows have been said and the cake has been cut, the only things that remain are a marriage and the beautiful photographs that document that very long-awaited day. Rudy did an excellent job of preserving those key moments that really mark the beginning of a lifetime together. His images have a photojournalistic quality that is very difficult, if possible at all, to find. And we are genuinely thankful for his originality, hard work and attention to detail.

Although it sounds like I might have made it up, I did no such thing.


I am fortunate to have my work published in several books and numerous websites, government publications, professional newsletters, blogs, and on-line and magazine advertisements.

This list is in a constant state of flux and is updated on a regular basis. Check back often!
