INTERVIEW FROM VIP DU JOUR MAGAZINE
"She is a wedding photographer based in Sarasota, Florida. Her love affair with wedding photography started in 2006 working as a photographer assistant for a photographer in Tampa, Florida. ” I immediately felt very comfortable taking candid photos at cocktail hour, people dancing at the reception, table shots…so I loved the wedding atmosphere from day one.” Few years later, loaded with the right gear, knowledge and experience , she decided to go SOLO and never stopped since. “My boss retired in 2010 and I was itching to photograph a wedding by myself. I knew I could do it. I was made for this! I photographed 4 weddings over 6 hours that same year. ”
Her photography style is a combination of traditional for family and group portraits, photojournalism for wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. For the wedding couple portraits, she likes to guide them by just giving simple directions. ” I am a wedding story-teller, that’s what I am. The photographs I produce on a wedding day is filled with genuine emotions and natural joy. In a non-obtrusive way, but very focused, I like to capture the moments not only during the wedding ceremony or dance at the reception but everything and everybody, from the beautiful flowers and decor, your guests arriving or at the cocktail hour, the children being themselves, the venue staff and other vendors that helped with your wedding day and up to the wedding couple portraits. ” Carlla Juffo’s approach to create beautiful couples portraits is as she defines as simple and dynamic. ” Over the years and over 300 weddings under my belt, my photography style matured to a point where collaboration with the bride and groom and minimum direction is the perfect formula to deliver timeless and romantic images. Sometimes all is needed is beautiful natural light, the look of love, holding hands . Simple like that. ”
” MY MAIN GOAL ON YOUR WEDDING DAY IS TO CAPTURE NATURAL, TIMELESS IMAGES THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR HEART.”
Nikon has been her choice for cameras and lenses for over 10 years, always upgrading to the newest model available in the market. Recently, she purchased a Nikon film camera following a growing trend among wedding photographers to shoot both digital and film. ” With Nikon, I can always count with focus accuracy and sharpness. I love the colours it delivers. I own a D750, D7200 and the spectacular F100 to shoot film. ”
In addition to weddings, she offers Engagement photo sessions, Family photos on the beach, Sweet 16 and Fotos de Quinceaneras y Bodas. Once a year, she volunteers her photography services to Sarasota Film Society, Girls Scouts of Venice, The Spanish community at Saint Jude Catholic Church and Sarasota Animal Rescue. Carlla Juffo also supports the organizations Brides against cancer and Wish upon a wedding. “I love what I do and I love working for a good cause.”
“Being able to speak fluently Spanish and Portuguese helps connect my services with more people looking for a photographer in Sarasota and in the Southwest Coast of Florida.”
