Rafa, Rafa, Rafa! What can I say that would actual capture what you did for us!?! Even though you relocated to DC, you flew back to Puerto Rico to fulfill your promise to photograph our wedding. And we were truly blessed that we chose you! It's only been a few weeks since our wedding, but the memories and feel for that night were begining to fade and suddenly we get the email with our photo page link last night and like magic! We were transported back to that amazing day and felt everything all over again because you are simply that talented! You truly managed to capture the energy and the love of that night. You got every little detail I would have never thought of and captured moments I was too busy to witness! My favorite photo, strange enough, is the one where you zoomed in on my neck to capture that moment when my mother put on my pearls. So simple, so delicate, and so artful without being overly artful. I am so very grateful that we managed to be referred to you by our coordinator Carmen of WedAffair, but I have to admit, what you gave us was a fraction of what it cost! You were worth every penny and then some! It is obvious that you do this work because it really is your passion and lives and breathes your spirit! God bless you my friend! Good luck with your move to the mainland! And thank you! Thank you! Thank you!...PS, don't be surprised if we ask you to come to NY to photograph another event! ;)

Rafa was an incredible photographer. On the day of my wedding he arrived early ready to capture pictures of my bridal party and I getting ready. He took a lot of candid pictures that looked very nature and elegant. He was very professional the whole time and took some very creative pictures. His prices were very affordable and I'm definitely glad I choose Rafa as my photographer.

We absolutely love Rafa! We found him on Wedding Wire for our engagement pictures and then used him again for our wedding. He was so responsive and helped us get the perfect pictures on our big day. He was creative and extremely professional. Our guests loved him and he even took a full group selfie at the end of the night. Highly recommend him and we are so grateful we found him!

I was referred to Rafa by my wedding coordinator, as well as the hotel catering manager. And it was the best recommendation! I can not say enough how grateful I am! Capturing your wedding is such an important detail of your wedding planning. You want to make sure that those moments are photographed by someone who has a passion and love for photography and Rafa exudes those very things! He is truly passionate about his profession and it shows. He was not only very professional, he was so kind and patient. The day of my wedding, I was a bit stressed and he was so thoughtful. Taking the time to reassure me that the day would be perfect. Even stepping outside my room and waiting for over 20 minutes as me and my bridesmaids frantically ran about. He was so understanding. He stayed with us for the entire reception, capturing moments. He was very familiar with the property (Caribe Hilton) so he knew exactly where to take us to get beautiful shots. I recommend him highly and look forward to having him photograph us again upon our return to PR!

We would have liked a little more direction about poses for our wedding photos. When reviewing our pictures some would have been improved if we have been told to adjust our pose ("lower your chin, turn your shoulders towards the camera", etc). Overall it was a great experience, he made us feel comfortable and had great ideas for locations to take our pictures.
