About

$8,500 Most Popular Price

My name is Manolo (mah-NO-lo), I’m a passion-filled, original photographer based in Miami, FL. I possess a strong appreciation for the extraordinary & strive for it in all I do, whether that’s capturing life’s greatest moments or finding my native city’s best slice of pizza.


If I wasn’t a professional I’m sure I’d still be snapping my life away. I’d like to think I’d also be on Broadway (as the very necessary off pitch ensemble member with two left feet). When I’m not behind a lens, I’m laughing with family/friends, traveling & partaking in adventures, inner peace classes, kayaks & cocktails!

It’s both satisfying and humbling to be able to give back through creative expression. As a photographer, I’m able to return life’s greatest moments to couples and families. My experiences have allowed me to genuinely understand how powerful images can be, and I take the role of capturing and protecting memories seriously. I know I’m being relied on and cherish the responsibility.

In my opinion, a cultivated relationship results in the best (pure, sincere and effortless) images. And because fostering relationships take time, I limit my efforts to no more than 25 events a year, both in and outside of Miami. I’ve been lucky enough to work in a bevy of locales, including The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Chicago, Texas, Ohio, Guatemala, and Costa Rica.

    Good Vibes

    I do not know where to begin. Manolo and his team are amazing!! From the moment I met Manolo he knew exactly what we wanted and the vibes that we were going for. His recommendations and timeline made everything go so smooth. On the Big Day with all the nerves and everything going as soon as Manolo got there it all went away. He knew exactly what to say and directed us every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. The pictures and the facial expressions. Just everything. He captures those perfect moments. Just watching our slide show makes me relive that moment and that’s exactly what I wanted. To relive those moments every time I open my album.

    Thank you so much Camila. It was a true pleasure working with you and Donald and were happy you both listened to our recommendations. We look forward to working with you again in the future! Cheers!

    You will not regret

    Manolo is not just a great photographer - he is a PRODUCER! I'm not photogenic or comfortable in front of the camera but Manolo was able to make me feel comfortable and express emotion so the pictures are truly authentic. He works quickly and every time I ignored his advice I regretted it. You will not regret working with him.

You will fall in love with Manolo and his work from the minute you meet him. He is a perfectionist and extremely creative....you will definitely have some great images and some great laughs! Extremely talented!

Rev. Eddie Rodriguez Rev. Eddie Rodriguez Wedding Officiants

There are many good photographers in South Florida, however, there are a few great photographers. In my opinion Manolo Doreste of In Focus Studios is a great photographer. A great photographer does much more than take a photograph. A great photographer sees the image in their mind before looking through the lens. The quality of his work, his professionalism, his attention to detail and his never ending quest to be the leader in customer service make Manolo Doreste a great photographer. Brides from Key West to New York, from Aspen to the Dominican Republic have all chosen Manolo as their wedding day photographer knowing that they have chosen an artist. Rev.
