      ABOUT

      LOVE LUXE STUDIO

      Welcome to Love Luxe Studio

      My name is Rodrigo and I’m a professional lifestyle and editorial wedding photographer, writer and educator based in St. Petersburg, Florida.

      I created Love Luxe Studio to showcase and feature my personal style to editorial wedding photography.

      My approach at Love Luxe Studio is ever-evolving. I focus on understated elegance, unexpected moments, and the idea of timelessness in the eyes of my subjects. I look for moments of authenticity and beauty while crafting a story that is unique, fun, and meaningful.

      My passion for wedding photography has led me to far-off celebrations in Europe, Asia, The Caribbean, plus Central and South America.

      “Clean”, “cinematic”, “editorial”, “artistic” and even “iconic” are words often used when people describe or give feedback on the work I produce.

      Love Luxe Studio appeals to couples that are both inspired and artistic themselves. Creativity and Passion are important parts of their personalities, as well as the belief that photography is one of the key pillars of their wedding-day journey.

      As a former fashion and editorial photographer, I believe in ample planning and execution through superior, well-practiced technique. As a former international news photojournalist, I also believe in finding and celebrating the emotional content of candid moments that will only happen once.

      Beyond my skill as an artist and extensive experience as a photographer, what couples find invaluable is my personality. I take charge when I need to take charge. I step back and blend with the background. We will spend our time having fun, telling jokes and making moments that make a life well-lived worth living. And getting amazing images to share with the world.

      So, let’s chat.

      LOVE. Always.
