To put it simply I would rather loose my deposit than work with Alina. She was very rude and condesending towards any idea I presented to her for our engagement shoot. She acted like she was doing me a favor not providing a service I was paying for. I am very glad I did not use her because at the end my photographer was fantastic. There is more than enough stress involved in planning a wedding to also have to deal with a diva photographer.

Please read below. I rest my case, like I said she is obnoxious and doesn't stop.

Hi Irenia,
I'm glad you found a photographer that fit your needs and style.
I gave you several recommendations that would produce amazing results at your engagement session. I advised you of so many things regarding your engagement session that you hadn't even thought of to begin with. You thanked me several times for sharing my knowledge and expertise. You should not blame me for trying to help you in detail. I will be honest if an idea a client has will not work and also be honest when an idea will work. I don't fail. Read my other reviews and you will see. In addition, remember you didn't know where to have your wedding? I gave you the idea of Jungle Island? You were so thankful to me for handing you lists of reliable vendors! I don't deserve this review. It seems something may have gone wrong with your wedding and Im obviously the scapegoat, the only one you want to take out the anger on. Im sorry your inner peace and balance has been altered and lead to feelings of anger. To be clear, you cancelled the engagement shoot and didn't even allow me to create gorgeous imagery as I continue to serve south Florida brides and beyond. Yes, sometimes my extravagant and amazing ideas are not the right fit for some brides, so Im glad you found your right fit! ;) all the best in your marriage and remember, don't stress the little things! Life is too short so enjoy, take deep breathes and smile ;)

My wedding was on November 8th, 2013. I used Alina for my photography services. I enjoyed working with Alina and Becky. They are so friendly and they were so patient with all the questions I had. I love their creativity. They were on time on the wedding date and for the engagement session. I would recommend everyone to use Alina and her staff for their photos. I am very pleased with the service, the engagement and wedding pictures I received from them. They are GREAT!

I'm thrilled to death with my photographer who was recommended to me by my best friend. I worked with Alina for my engagement shoot and Freddy for my wedding! They are both extremely professional, easy going and have great attitudes. They enjoy their work tremendously and it shows. A few of my engagement pictures were used to make a 15 X 30 canvas that served as my guestbook! I received so many compliments about how beautiful the canvas was! I can only imagine how gorgeous my wedding pics will be!!!!! SO HAPPY with my photographers! I HIGHLY recommend them :)

Alina M. Photography was everything we expected, and more! Alina takes AMAZING pictures and doesn't make you feel awkward while doing so! My main concern as a bride was looking unnatural and Alina made sure I felt comfortable. I have received SO many compliments on my pictures and I can't wait to use Alina M. Photography again. "As good as it gets!"

From the moment I got to Alina's office the day of our appointment, I knew we had found our photographer. She has the most adorable office in the heart of south miami (sunset place-ish) and you feel like you are in her home. When she interviews us as a couple I knew she was getting to know us to figure out where we would shoot our engagement session, and what our dynamic was. Working with her has been a joy and we could not be more happy with her work. Becky and Kayla are awesome too, we love them!

Alina is the most amazing photographer. She is extremely professional and really was so easy to work with. She helped execute the vision I had for my engagement and boudoir session. She was very creative and really helped walk me through the whole process. I had never taken professional pictures before and was a little nervous about what positions and poses I should do. I also didn't know which outfits I should pick to go with the theme I selected. Her and her assistant Becky, helped walk me through the different outfit selections I should bring. They helped me put all my outfits together, from hair to jewelry to shoes. On the day of the shoot, they would show me all the poses all should do. This helped ease my nerves and made the process so easy and care free. The pictures came out AMAZING! I received so many compliments on the pictures. The guest book and boudoir album Alina and her staff put together were flawless. They were so well put together and excellent quality. For my wedding, Alina went above and beyond. She even helped get me dressed, because my mom was to nervous to remember how to do the corset of my dress. Alina was also able to give me so many ideas and suggestions for the wedding, from vendors I could use, to things to incorporate in the wedding. I am extremely pleased with her and her work. I can’t wait for my wedding album to arrive. I could go on and on about how amazing she is…her work is phenomenal. She is very patient, flexible and her work is like no other.

There are no words to really describe how the team at Alina M. Photography has made us feel. Picking wedding vendors is sometimes a scary feat, you meet with strangers and you give deposits upfront for services to be rendered at a later date. The team at Alina M. Photography made this "Scary Moment" for my (then) fiancé & I one of the most fun moments of our lives. We met with Alina about a year before our wedding, she was ready for our meeting as soon as we arrived and we instantly felt at home. Her studio is absolutely beautiful, adorned with pictures she herself has taken, soft music playing in the background, and an absolutely delicious Yankee Candle smell. The first step in our meeting was an interview process, she finds out what we like, who we are, what kinds of things we do for fun. We set up our Engagement Session date and were able to coincide dates with a trip we had planned to Oklahoma to visit my Fiancé’s parents. The days leading up to the E-Session, Alina was readily available through E-mail, or by calling the studio. We needed so much advice, and she was there ready to help us along the way. Needless to say, the pictures came out beautiful. She was absolutely wonderful to work with- she even stayed with us in my Fiancé’s parents’ home. We were able to see our online gallery within the contracted time frame, and we fell in love with all the pictures! Our engagement album was delivered shortly after, and it is ART! It is so stunning to have these memories put together in a book like the one Alina made for us. On our wedding day, she showed up right on time and got to work right away. She made me feel calm, relaxed, and comfortable. She was not intrusive, and she didn’t have me pose in awkward positions. It was all so natural and relaxed. She was extremely professional at the church, respectful of guests, and was very diligent when it came time to take the dreaded family pictures (everyone wants one, and they usually take so long!), with Alina, we were able to do them quickly and naturally, and without a hitch! Since our engagement we had moved to Oklahoma, my husband & I wanted to bring some “Cuban” culture back home. We had the idea of taking pictures at Sergio’s, and Alina loved it. She followed us to Sergio’s and took amazing pictures, never complained once about our whim! At the reception she was wonderful, taking pictures of our families, friends, and of course, us. Every guest at the wedding was photographed, and even though she had a long day, she didn’t complain once. She made all the kids feel comfortable (they all LOVED her!), and all the adults feel relaxed. Her style is so wonderful, so natural. Every single picture looks un-rehearsed, but absolutely stunning. Even from Oklahoma, I can't wait to use Alina M. Photography for all of life's major events, we will CERTAINLY use her again, and have already recommended her to many people!!! Thank you ALINA!!!
