I booked with Manolo about a few weeks ago and I'm more than excited that he is our photographer! I can't wait till our wedding to have one of a kind pictures! Not only is his work impeccable but he's one of the few photographers that actually sit with you and ask you your story. Which I love. Having a relationship that click with your photographer is key on how your photos will come out. It was instant with Manolo. I can't wait till next year!

Manolo and his staff are absolutely amazing! We were fortunate enough to have him capture our engagement session and wedding. During both occasions he made us feel at ease and it was truly effortless. His attention to detail, professional disposition and charisma put him above the rest. From the pre-shoot meetings to the wonderful presentation of the photos after the event, Manolo and his staff go above and beyond to please their clients and make sure every detail is covered. I am so happy that we chose Manolo to capture our special day- because of his artistry and creativity our photos are absolutely incredible!!

Working with Manolo will be the best decision you'll make in your wedding planning!

My husband and I are beyond thrilled with our experience working with Manolo Doreste. Manolo was professional and warm from the first meeting and working with him was a lot of fun. He captured our moments just as we wanted and did it beautifully. Our photos look like they belong in a magazine while still showcasing the love and emotion of our special day. We have established a lifelong relationship with Manolo and can’t wait for him to capture the many milestones in our lives.

We were shocked. Did our highly regarded wedding photographer not only exceed expectations but also take command during disorganized moments and smoothly coordinate a wedding party of 25+ while also fading into the background and not overwhelming a crowd of over 200 guests? Fascinating: this is how we describe Manolo’s ability to gently capture emotional elements during key moments of the ceremony and reception and deliver hands on direction for creating cinematic snapshots. He is not just a photographer, he is an artist using a palette of happiness, chaos, celebration, emotion, love and stress to paint a beautiful mural of one of the most special experiences in our lifetime. His team’s creativity and professionalism can easily be seen when gazing through our engagement photos sailing around Miami’s coast or in our wedding photos dancing and celebrating love among the greenery at Estancia Culinaria.

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!
