ALFREDO AND MARYEL
LEAD PHOTOGRAPHERS AND FOUNDERS
Maryel and Alfredo are the Photography duo behind Gonzalez Lugo Photography, LLC. They met at a networking event in Winter Haven Florida in early 2017 and soon after began a mutual admiration for each others photography work, talent and passion. They began collaborating with each others events, Alfredo bringing his experience with his lighting techniques and dramatic, edgy style in the Latin market and Maryel bringing her light and airy Wedding Photography experience, filled with light, romance and full of love and passion.
It wasn’t until their first Wedding Destination collaboration in San Antonio, Texas where they noticed that their admiration, collaboration and friendship had turned into something more and in the Fall of that same year they joined forces both in their professional and personal lives to bring a more contemporary, modern and candid style of photography to the couples they serve.
In their personal lives they enjoy traveling to the Blue Ridge Mountains chasing sunsets, and every morning you will find them sharing a warm latte. They love spending time with their Vendor Friends and collaborating with others in their community and industry.
Alfredo loves watching movies, has the sweetest tooth ever and his greatest temptation is nerd rope. He is a dare devil lover of pure adrenaline and is a true southern gentleman who is a bit timid but opens up to people with time.
Maryel is a total social butterfly, that knows no stranger and loves fashion, make-up and being completely hands on with her brides on wedding day. She has even gone as far as coordinating some events for her clients. She has a heart of gold and loves her God! Breakfast is her favorite anytime meal and you will sweep her off her feet with an ice cold glass of Coke.
They are a blended couple and have five crazy talented children between the both of them and Winter Haven, FL is their home. They hope to continue their amazing wedding photography journey capturing love stories throughout Central Florida and destinations Nationwide.

BRINGING YOUR WEDDING DAY VISION TO LIGHT

Wedding planning isn't easy, especially when you're juggling a full time job/ school or when you're planning your wedding in a different state. We know for our own wedding, We had a vision in mind and we wanted everything to be perfect but had no idea where to begin. That's where we come in.
When choosing your wedding vendors, you are choosing your support system. You need a team of people who understand you, who are excited for you, and someone you really connect with and trust.

Jessica "Jess" Whiting
I have loved Maryel and Alfredo's work ever since they took pictures for my sister’s wedding! They are so encouraging and want to help me along my journey. I want to work alongside them to grow my knowledge of photography and to come out of my shy shell and become more outgoing, confident, and comfortable around clients. Maryel and Alfredo have given me an amazing opportunity to achieve my dreams and I am truly honored to be their intern!
A friendship that has grown since our fist consultation. Maryel and Alfie captured our dream wedding far beyond my expectations. Since our wedding in October 2019, my wife, Airianne and I have used them them to capture some of the most important times in our life.
