Welcome to our Blog!

Let me tell you a little more about us. Alex and I are happily married and we work together at every wedding and photo session. We have three awesome children. Joey Victoria who is 2 years old and our twins Bianca & Alex, who were born in June 3rd 2015!
I love listening to music. I'm a huge Bon Jovi fan and when Alex isn't around, I'm usually singing out loud while working on the computer. I enjoy watching martial arts & figure skating; both of which I competed in when I was younger. I was pretty good in Tae Kwon Do, so you better don't mess with me... just kidding.
I love eating cereal, salads & sushi! My world wouldn't be complete without them! Sure, I'm a little crazy. And Alex is the official dishwasher at home and he loves cars and could talk about them all day. Our TV adiction is Shark Tank. We both are fluent in Spanish as it is our first language. We have a dog named Troy who always makes funny noises when sleeping. We love our life and each other and the freedom of creating images that reflect this crazy thing we are living called love.

6TH SENSE, A Photography Workshop!



As you know, our thing is pretty much capturing all those crazy things happening when two people are in love. We mostly photograph weddings & couples, but we surely enjoy doing all kind of portraits and giving them that twist that makes you say "Wow"!

We have developed the Stage I with the basics of photography and are very excited about sharing it with you. We assure you that you will have a great time while learning photography and by the time you complete the course, you will be capturing and creating amazing images that you never thought you would be able to do with your camera!


What will you learn
You will learn how to use the basic functions of your camera; exposure, aperture, speed, ISO, focus points, metering modes, histogram, and how to control your light and composition. At the end of the course you will be able to use your camera in Manual mode instead of Automatic or Program P (P does not stand for Professional, by the way). More importantly, you will learn when to use certain settings, according to the type of photography or the unique circumstances of the shooting.  

We'll do demonstrations during class and take you outside the classroom to do some field work. You will be shooting a lot! because this is about practice and, of course, you'll be also taking notes.     

Who can attend this course?
You don’t need any knowledge about the subject. This course is for anyone wanting to learn how to use a professional camera and for those who want to get more involved in photography and be able to take on any photography opportunity with confidence.

Gear you will need
DSLR camera or SLR film camera

Duration & Cost
