Thank you for taking the time to read this post on my blog. My name is Carlla Juffo. I'm from the island of Vitoria, Brazil. So, yes I speak Portuguese and Spanish and of course English . I've been in United States living, working, raising my wonderful four children for over 20 years now . I'm also proud to be an American citizen . So, How did I become a photographer and why I photograph weddings? In 2005 I decided to take classes at a community college nearby while my kids were in school and day care. I wanted to stay busy and also learn new things. I took French, gardening, sewing, American history and photography. I learned the very basic in all those classes and decided to pursuit photography further. I bought used equipment, worked as a photographer assistant for a wedding photographer in Pinellas County, Florida from 2006 to 2010. I learned the craft and all that is related to wedding photography business. I have upgraded all my old cameras to newer professional DSLR Nikon cameras, flash and latest photo editing softwares like Lightroom and Adobe photoshop needed to do my job.
I really love being on wedding events. I feel helpful in the way that I'm recording an important moment in someone's life. Their wedding! I take this really serious!. From the bride and groom getting ready, ceremony, formal portraits and reception. All that preparation and effort put in an event like a wedding, I like to be there to take a note with my camera, meaning photograph it.
I started photographing weddings solo in 2011 and still do it. I'm based in Sarasota, Florida and travel to Naples, Fort Myers, Tampa, Clearwater beach, Orlando and also Waynesville in North Carolina. I am available to photograph engagements, vow renewals and families on the beach of Siesta Key, Florida. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 941-894-9262 to book a photo session.
I also help couples with wedding planning like setting up wedding decor on the beach, choose an officiant to marry them and giving some advice choosing hotels and accommodations... On the next blogs I will be posting photos, ideas and advice related to weddings and weddings on the beach. I encourage you to leave comments and share your wedding ideas as well . If you have a question or would like more info about wedding packages and locations to get married or to have a vow renewal ceremony , please leave me a note here.
