We are Roge and Fernando and we want you to know some things about us. We passionately and creatively document love stories. (It feels so cheesy when I see it written, but it’s true.) And we want you to understand that there are no second chances to get it right, and that we are obsessed with getting it right. This is your wedding, our work will tell your story forever, and we don’t take that lightly. At all.
Fernando has been a photographer his whole life. You could say it runs in his family. His dad is a photographer and began teaching him the trade early. Fernando is unique because he’s both insanely creative and free spirited, but also possesses an unheard-of level of technical knowledge. He once took a stand-up paddle board down a river in the Amazon for 20 days with nothing but a paper map. His curiosity, passion, and willingness to take chances are part of what makes him so good at shooting weddings. He sees the world differently. He’s so damn good at what he does.
I'm Roge, and I have not taken a paddle board down any river in the Amazon, but my collaborative, attentive, organized personality makes me the perfect partner, second shooter, and client liaison. I’m a creative at heart. I moved to New York to study dance at the renowned Alvin Alley, fell in love with the city, and never left. Then I fell in love with Fernando. Together we started this business in 2015. This is our craft. We are artisans, small business owners, and creatives. We are careful to only take on a few clients at a time, ensuring that we can collaborate with our couples one-on-one, do our research, and bring a high level of personalization to each wedding. We bring our unique style and approach, but love seeing how each couple changes our art and pushes our style.
And If you’re still wondering about how to pronounce Roge, the R is pronounced like an H and the ge is like a French J. You’re likely more confused than ever, now….

Absolutely incredible photographers
This husband and wife duo is the real deal! I have been in 15+ wedding in my life I've seen just about everything. They absolutley exceeded every expectation. The pictures are just on another level. Their ability to efficiently pose large groups is the best I've ever seen. I seen other photographers waste so much time trying to do this but they nailed it in no time at all. The intimate photos getting ready before the ceremony look like they belong in a fashion magazine. They litterally got better and better as the night went on. Our reception was action packed, my wife and I danced a good 75% of the time and every time I looked up from the fun they were there capturing all the genuine happy moments with friends and family. The candid photos are so good , looking through the mountain of photos they gave us feels like living my wedding night over every time. Not to mention they gave us like 100 pictures the day after that we shared immediately on social media. Then gave all the rest to us 1 month after the wedding. I can not reccomend them enough... for what they gave me I honestly feel like they should have charged me double.Sent on 01/25/2019

The Best Wedding Decision
From the moment we reached out to Fernando and Roge from Warm Up Labs we knew they would be our vendors. We felt their passion for their work and true love for their clients immediately, first through email and later in person during our full pre-wedding walk through.Sent on 06/25/2019
I had only one request from our photographers, and that was to capture beautiful moments but let us “do our own thing”. Little did I know, that was their mantra! They staged photos with family when needed, even followed a full list of over 15 family portraits, but when it came to my husband and I it was like they felt when to give us space and when to join in on our little moments.
Roge in particular was my saving grace, I’m a type A planner and what I thought was just a short wedding walk through turned into a full schedule in her head which she then worked with me to perfect. They didn’t rush us the day of but somehow made sure we captured everything we wanted.
And I know I haven’t even gotten to the main reason why you’re probably reading this review... their work. And that’s because all I have to say is WOW. They are both professionals in their field, they master the non wedding wedding photography feel. Our photos did not just capture our most intimate moments, but they also honored the light, texture and beauty around us.
We walked away from our big day gaining two dear friends!
If there is one thing I can recommend everyone for their wedding day, it’s to have these two genuine and loving souls by your side!

Best wedding photographers!
Look no further for wedding photographers!! Roge and Fernando photographed our wedding at FEAST at Round Hill on 6/16/19 in Washingtonville, NY. They are SO talented and incredibly easy and fun to work with! I remember meeting with them initially and they described their guarantee to provide a "sneak peek" of photos the day after your wedding and I can't begin to explain how awesome it was to actually see quality images the very next day and already begin reliving how much fun our wedding was. I also really appreciated how once all of the formal photos and ceremony were over they stuck by us and made sure that if we were talking to a guest and wanted a posed picture they were right there to capture it. At the same time, they were also taking candid, in-the-moment images. They both have an eye for capturing special moments and exploring unique angles and set-ups for both formal and informal photos. On top of all of that, they were extremely responsive and organized and reached out to us leading up to the event to ensure they answered any lingering questions or requests that we may have. We will forever treasure our wedding memories and are so lucky to have the beautifully artistic images from Roge and Fernando. xoxo!Sent on 08/13/2019
