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.

Manolo and his staff were very professional and attentive. They did a great job of explaining to my partner and I how the evening would play out and what to expect as well as how we could best work together to achieve the best results. The day was perfect and the photos came out beautifully. I would definitely recommend this photographer to a friend.

I've known Manolo and seen his work for many years but never had the pleasure of working with him. So when the time came to choose a photographer, I knew exactly who to call.

And from the very first meeting, I knew that I had made the right decision. Manolo's work is clearly impeccable but it's his dedication and charming personality that pull you in. On one of the most important days of your life, you want to work with someone who makes you feel 100% at ease and comfortable. That's exactly what Manolo does. My now husband and I felt so comfortable working with Manolo that it made our photos look all the more wonderful. And during the actual ceremony, I completely forgot that he was there taking photos... that may seem strange to say but looking back on the day, I really appreciated it.

Manolo and his team, go above and beyond for each of their clients from start to finish including the whole process of selecting the photos for your album. He provides you with a selection of his favorites and to be honest, our whole album is comprised of those photos that's how spot on his selections are.

I could go on for days but all you really need to know is that choosing In Focus Studios will be one of the best decisions you could ever make. I know it was one of mine.

Manolo was fantastic. He made me feel totally comfortable, beautiful, and like true bride. I remember looking at pictures of brides in various photographers' galleries and thinking they looked beautiful but that could never be me. However, with Manolo's help (plus Makeup by Marz and Art of Hair by Claudia), I was that bride. The photos are amazing and really capture the essence of every important moment from the big day.

I am very self conscious and normally cringe at the idea of pictures. However, within 15 minutes of picture taking, Manolo had me doing what we called "Tyra" - I felt comfortable not only in front of the camera, but also posing for his suggested photos. That was something I did not think I could do or wanted to do, but I am SO GLAD I did because the pictures are fantastic!

Manolo is also really fun to work with. My mom, my bridesmaids and I spent the entire "getting ready" time laughing while we were with Manolo.

When I told him that my grandmother and I are close, he made sure to take pictures of the important getting ready moments and of her during the ceremony. I will treasure those photos particularly forever.

To say the least, I highly recommend Manolo and in focus.
