Rodrigo is not only an exceptional photographer but he is also a wonderful person and makes everyone feel comfortable. I am not very comfortable having my photo taken but Rodrigo was able to coach me into some incredible photos which I am so thankful to have. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Rodrigo, you are amazing! Jon and I loved our wedding photos. You captured moments that truly took me back to that day all over again. We can't thank you enough! We will cherish our pictures forever.
We got married at the Four Season Miami. Rodrigo knew the space very well. He was very professional. He is an amazing artist. He has an eye for special moments and makes magic with his camera. He was very helpful in reminding me to smile "dientes!" and guiding me to pose. I am a bit camera shy and he made me feel like a model. You can be confident that with Rodrigo you will get quality work and photographs that are beautiful. Also, we got our photographs earlier than I expected. Rodrigo is the best!!
Thank you again!

I had the absolute please of working with Rodrigo Varela on January 15, 2016 for Barbie & Jorge's wedding!
I have so many great things to say about Rodrigo and his team I don't know where to begin!
He is definitely a great vendor to work alongside!
Incredibly professional! Has great communication skills! Is always on point!
And was always willing to help me with anything I needed.
Followed the timeline to the T.
And most importantly made sure that the BRIDE & GROOM were captured in every-way!
Thank you Rodrigo! It was such a pleasure to work with you! Can't wait to do it again!

We wish there were more than 5 stars to express the quality of Rodrigo and his team! Our experience with Rodrigo Varela Photography was top class. Rodrigo himself was very easy to work with which made us feel at ease and allowed us to enjoy our day to the fullest. He took the time go get to know us and our vision for our big day, asking lots of questions from the first day we met him. We definitely got the sense that he cared about the work he did and the people he was doing it for.
On our big day he was focused, fun, and fully engaged. His attention to detail and creative eye captured all the little moments throughout our day in the best way possible. He handled the time constraints and was able to plan and execute on the fly with the changing weather that we had on our wedding day. He and his team also worked well with the other vendors and our guests. Many of our guests came back to us and said "It was obvious you had a small entourage following you around (referring to the photographer and videographers), but they were never in our way. We barely noticed them". This is exactly what you want to hear from your guests!
His work speaks for itself. We were so impressed with all the photos he and his team took, and he truly has created some amazing memories for us to look back on for a lifetime!
We would HIGHLY recommend Rodrigo and his team!

Rodrigo Varela is a true artist. His work is not comparable to anyone else's. He has the ability to truly capture the moment and his pleasant personality makes it easy to relax and have fun through the shoot. He did our engagement and wedding photos, and we could not be happierwith the results. He was able to capture the special moments on our wedding day in the most beautiful way. I highly recommend Rodrigo.
Bianca · Married on 06/03/2017
Rodrigo and his team were absolutely amazing! The photography was beautiful and he truly captured the emotion of the day. We also used him for our engagement pictures, which came out amazing! He went above and beyond to make sure we had photos with many backgrounds and different lighting. His team is wonderful and very responsive. He is expensive but his work speaks for it and is worth every penny!
Maria · Married on 05/13/2017
When my venue ( Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables )provided me the list of photographers that they recommended, Rodrigo Varela was listed as soon as I checked his website I knew that I wanted him to capture the pictures of our wedding. Loved, loved his work. When I reached out to him he was so nice and gives you a very positive feeling about working with him. For my fiancé, now husband and I the pictures were very important since pictures are all that remains after the big day and that it will be one of the priority when it came to budget, it was worth every penny. Rodrigo has an amazing team and he can be reached easily. Great energy, positive and easy to work with.
Arianna · Married on 04/22/2017
We had a great time working with Rodrigo and his team. Very professional and outgoing staff. The pictures are amazing! We have received so many complements on all the pictures. We have over 900 pictures and is so difficult to choose our favorites because they are all beautiful. We did our engagement session and wedding day with him and both occasions were a day full of fun. Rodrigo is super creative and will make you feel super comfortable. I highly recommend him and every penny is definitely worth spending on his super high quality work and experience!
Elizabeth · Married on 11/19/2016
Best photographer!!! There are no words to describe Rodrigo and his work. I recommend him to anyone and everyone. My wedding would have not been the same without him. His professionalism is unlike any other prompt with responses, super creative and makes you feel at ease. He is personable, honest, direct, and has such a distinct and gorgeous photography style. He was easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding and even afterwards. We loved him.
Niki · Married on 10/09/2016
Rodrigo Valera and all of his assistant photographers are phenomenal artists! They shot my wedding in October and did a follow up session this January, and both experiences were magical. Rodrigo has a fantastic eye, and is willing to go to any lengths to capture the perfect shot. Not to mention, he is kind-hearted and humorous! We were amazed at how glamorous and timeless the final photos turned out, plus he follows up with edited shots immediately! Most photographers make you wait, but Rodrigo is that dedicated and special of a photographer and person. I could not imagine having anyone else capture the most important day of our lives, my husband and I are forever grateful and will most definitely be hiring him for any other momentous occasion! --Niki and Steve

Carmen · Married on 05/07/2016
I hired Rodrigo Varela to do the Photography for my daughter's First Holy Communion portraits and at the actual event. He did a wonderful job! The photos are amazing!!! Rodrigo and his team were incredibly professional, polite and very responsive. I'm so happy we hired him and I would highly recommend his services for capturing the essence and excitement of any celebration. Thank you Rodrigo!!!
Paige · Married on 05/07/2016
Where do I start - Rodrigo was FABULOUS! The most creative, passionate, and professional photographer we have ever met. Rodrigo and his great team photographed both our engagement and wedding in Miami. Words cannot explain how wonderful a job he did for us. Our engagement photos were spectacular and I cannot wait to see our wedding photos!!! I would recommend Rodrigo Varela to anyone looking for a photographer. I will definitely use him again for other special occasions.
Nicole · Married on 04/22/2016
I had the pleasure to work with Rodrigo in two events for my wedding. He was responsive with my concerns about scheduling, was on time for both events and professional. My fiancee had an innovative idea he needed help from Rodrigo to make it happen, and he was very flexible and accommodating to his request. The whole family loved him! He was funny and a pleasure to work with! I know there are many great photographers out there, but part from being excellent, Rodrigo's photography style is unique. He's able to make an ordinary scene stand out with the colors, movement and lightening, and makes a formal portrait look impressive and poised. In addition, what I especially loved the most, was his incredible ability to capture the emotion of the moment. When I look at the pictures now I can see all the emotions and the expressions captured that takes us to that moment. Very powerful! And lastly, he returned the pictures to us in less than 2 weeks! Very surprising, as I know stories of photographers that take forever to return them! So... needless to say, we were SUPER happy with his work! Totally recommend him!
Barbi · Married on 01/15/2016
Rodrigo and his crew is amazing they are professional they conversate and help you feel at ease. I like the moment type of pictures and he did a lot of that. He caught a lot of laughter and love in all his pictures and I'm just in love with each and everyone of my pictures. I would highly recommend him over any other photographer that I have met with.
Rosa · Married on 11/22/2015
When my husband and I initially got engaged and decided to have an actual wedding, we both agreed that the most important part of our wedding for us would be the pictures. Being as picky as I am, I knew that I would have to do my research and not just pick any photographer off of a list. Throughout the course of a month, I met an overwhelming amount of photographers by e-mail, phone, and in person. Rodrigo was the last photographer that I met with and I can honestly say that he won our hearts from the first day we met. He and his team are absolutely amazing to work with. I just recently got my wedding pictures back and my only problem is that I love all 750 pictures that he took. He worked day and night to get me my pictures back as soon as possible because he knew that I was dying to see them (I got married less than a month ago).
Rodrigo, I absolutely love my pictures and I cannot wait to go to your office to select my pictures and order my album.

Rodrigo and his team photographed our wedding weekend and did our engagement photos a few weeks prior. We were ecstatic with out engagement photos and just received our wedding photos and we were blown away! His photos are truly a work of art and he is so creative. Not only is he talented, but he is a pleasure to work with! He made my husband and I extremely comfortable and made hours of taking photos so much fun! We cannot recommend him enough!

Absolutely love Rodrigo. I was very particular about the vendors I used for my wedding and Rodrigo is as good as it gets in wedding photography.
Caroline · Married on 08/15/2015
Rodrigo Valera and his team went above and beyond our expectations. We met with them in April just a few months before our wedding in August. Rodrigo was able to schedule an engagement session in June. During the engagement photoshoot, Rodrigo and his assistant made us feel very comfortable. We were able to see the photos from the shoot soon after. Although the photographer had a medical procedure a week or two before, he still showed up and took fabulous pictures of our wedding. I recommend Rodrigo and his team to all my friends and anyone when they need a photographer. THE BEST IN SOUTH FLORIDA!!

Thank you Rodrigo for capturing our day and for being such an amazing partner and friend to us! :)
