  • I had a great experience working with Rafael from the beginning. He was very attentive and thorough in answering all of my questions. However, on the day of my wedding, Rafael was not there. The problem that I had was that I was told that there was some flexibility with photography on the property and that we would have access to the property for pictures before and after the ceremony. I had the space reserved from 11:00am to 1:00pm. At 1:05pm, in the middle of my groomsmen getting their pictures, we were asked to leave the property. Because of this, I now have NO individual pictures of my husband with each of his groomsmen. When I am told that I will have time to take pictures, it is my hope that they stand up to their word. The venue was beautiful but I will never get a chance to get these photographs back and I am truly devastated that I will be forced to remember this about the biggest day of my life.
