Let me just say, I love Manolo! Now that my wedding has come and gone, my pictures are the most important thing left (besides my marriage). I saw In Focus Studio's website, and I almost didn't call because I thought I could never afford a photographer this awesome. I set up a meeting anyway. Of the seven photographers I met, Manolo was the most expensive. I don't have any of my pictures back yet because my wedding was only a week ago, but I couldn't wait to rave about this photographer. I had to set up a payment plan, and it was worth it to have such an amazing photographer. I would choose him again. He is just such a nice guy. He was so easy to talk to, and as professional as anyone could be. He was helpful with planning and setup, as well as the day of my wedding. He shared ideas that were very helpful. With emotion and excited running high, he and his team were patient and a pleasure to have present. He treated me like royalty. I felt like he was all mine, like nothing was more important to him than providing what I needed to make my wedding day awesome, and to have it documented just the way I wanted it. His assistants were great too. From the flowers, to the DJ, to the cake, and the dresses, my photographer was the one I knew was not gonna let me down. He showed me a few pictures seconds after he took them, and I am amazed at his creativity and skill. It was an honor to have worked with Manolo Doreste and team at In Focus Studios.

We couldn't be happier making the decision to work with Manolo for our wedding. He is an amazing photographer and such a pleasure to work with. His work is amazing and made everything fun from the Engagement shoot, a "His Eyes Only" shoot and the actual wedding day. Manolo is extremely professional yet so personal with any requests that you may have. I cannot wait until our next event to work with Manolo, as I know his work is one of kind!

Choosing a photographer for my wedding was one of the most difficult decisions for me. I'm a pretty decisive person, and i found it difficult to decide because there are a myriad of photography styles and countless photographers in Miami. I met with 9 photographers and when I met Manolo i was hooked. He was the ONLY person that asked us questions about ourselves and our style instead of just the basic "how many people will attend" and "which venue did you choose". She asked about our likes and dislikes, our personalities and even our favorite candy!

Manolo is extremely easy to get along with, professional, upbeat and most of all creative. So far he has shot our engagement pictures and wedding. We have one more shoot with him and I have to idea what to expect because his images and the way he captures us as a couple is really amazing.
When working with us i noticed that he not only took beautiful pictures bet he also makes you feel so at ease while doing it. In the pictures where we are laughing, we are genuinely laughing at something he said which really makes the images look natural and not posed or fake. Most importantly he managed to capture us as a couple and exactly the way we are which is certainly loving and quite frankly a little goofy.

He offers a large variety of books, albums, pictures boxes and other accessories to choose from and everything is done professionally and in a timely manner. His staff is equally as nice and professional as well.


I also really appreciate the Viewing Party that he puts together once your images are ready. He invites you to the studio with your closest family and friends for refreshments and snacks while you view a slideshow of the images, set to music in his beautiful studio. These details coupled with his his incredible eye, make him a true artist and businessman. I would certainly recommend In Focus Studios to anyone that craves creative memories instead of just another posed photo.

I knew from the moment I met Manolo that we made the right decision in choosing him as our photographer.He was so high energy, kind and professional. Our final pre planning meeting was incredibly efficiant and he got us perfectly prepared for the day.

But I had no idea how much energy he had until the day of our wedding! He was incredibly punctual and ready to go from the second he got to the hotel.

What a vision this man has seriously. Some of the shots he took of us were so outside the box and creative. He was so quick with taking all of the family/ bridal party shots, and was loved by everyone!

You can really tell Manolo is passionate about his profession and art. He was an absolutely doll to work with and I will recommend him to everyone!!! Cant wait to see the final pics!

THANK YOU!!

Don't think twice about hiring him- just do it.
The first thing you'll notice about him (besides his good looks) is his years of experience. He is extremely professional (he won't ever be late, he'll always be dressed to perfection, and very respectful of other vendors and your family); knows just about every major venue in Miami (which means he knows where the best shots are); and was a great guide through out the entire wedding process.
He went above and beyond his job description- he helped me find other reputable vendors and never hesitated to advise me regarding other aspects of the wedding.
I am an attorney and, unfortunately, had little time to spend researching/planning a wedding. That's where Manolo won me over, he was more than a photographer, he was a wedding guru/mentor.
Then, there were his pictures. Every picture was stunning. He kept true to his turn around time, and boy did he deliver. I will treasure his art for the rest of my life.
