Simply Captivating was the second vendor we booked after choosing our venue and date (we booked Simply Captivating over a year in advanced). We had been following their work through IG and they were highly recommended by co-workers and friends who had booked with them for their special occasion. Our photographer was Victoria and she is extremely professional and is the studio manager for Simply Captivating. Victoria would always reply to e-mails, text, calls in a timely manner, and helped us with any questions, concerns and even provided ideas when we were in doubt. Victoria was in contact with us a month before the wedding, two weeks before the wedding, and the week of the wedding to make sure we were on the same page. She arrived before scheduled start time to make sure she got the shots that I wanted and even stayed after scheduled end time to make sure she got all the photos I wanted. She was very sweet and friendly and always remained professional throughout the day considering we had a big (and out of hand) bridal party. Everyone at the wedding commented that they loved how nice and polite she was. Finally, the turnaround time was so fast! We were still in our honeymoon and we already had all our pictures (digital) and it had not been two weeks. All the pictures are beautiful and she helped us so much with different poses! Looking through the pictures, we were able to re-live our wedding because she made sure to capture every special moment and every single guest having a good time. We would highly recommend Victoria from Simply Captivating to capture your special occasion!
The payment options were easy and flexible. The down payment did not put a strain on the budget! :) My wedding was very small and they were able to accommodate my requests. The photographer Janai Bermudez was absolutely amazing! She took time to meet us ahead of time to get to know the venue and our likes and dislikes. Day of event she was early and was very attentive to detail and captured our special day perfectly! I will definitely use their services again in the future. Excellent experience!
I had the pleasure of working with Vicky as the main photographer and Robert as the videographer. They were absolutely amazing from beginning to end. The pictures are breathtaking and beautiful; so much so that my husband and I cannot stop looking at them and have such a hard time picking what to share. It helped us be a lot more comfortable due to the fact that we had already worked with Vicky for our engagement shoot so come wedding day, it wasn't awkward at all. I highly recommend them as I could have not asked for a better team to shoot the wedding. We are forever grateful!
For my wedding day/engagement pictures Victoria was our photographer and she by far surpassed any expectations I had for what I wanted our pictures to look like. She was AMAZING! From the very beginning, 10 months before our wedding we went to have our engagement session done at the Ancient Spanish Monastery and she knew exactly how to direct my husband and I. She knew to use just the right amount of time in getting our shots done before my husband would start to complain about the heat lol! Fast forward to our wedding day and again she blew us away with her professionalism and artistic vision. Having done several weddings at Hotel Colonnade she knew all of the spots that would create the best backdrop for our pictures. I am just over-the-moon happy with the way all of our photos turned out and am so glad I chose Victoria to be our photographer. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!! She is a major asset to Simply Captivating and I will definitely be using her some time in the future if we get around to needing maternity/newborn photos! :)
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Ricky . We had him photograph both our civil wedding and our Catholic wedding & reception party. Ricky was flexible, cool, calm & collected. He was open to all our photo suggestions and had wonderful ideas as well. Ricky was always timely, dressed appropriately, and most importantly, he always blended in...he knew exactly where to place himself during these special moments to capture without intruding. He is what every photographer should be! I would recommend him for any event you need! Thank you again, Ricky!

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Gonzalo for photos and Robert for cinematography. What an amazing team! They were extremely professional and very attentive to detail, but also very sweet, humble and very cool guys. We had our wedding at Disney World (ceremony at the Wedding Pavilion and reception at the Boardwalk Inn Resort). When looking for outside vendors, I wanted to find one that had worked inside Disney and knew of great locations for photos/video. I found out about Simply Captivating and Captivated Films through watching another Disney Wedding on Youtube that they had worked with previously. Gonzalo is very familiar with Disney and Disney Weddings since he had worked with them previously, so already I felt comfortable knowing this. Something special about Gonzalo and Robert that really stood out for us: we had a confetti ending at our reception as a surprise for our guests. We knew and understood that by that time, which was pretty late, that they wouldn't be able to stay for it since it went past the contracted hours. However, they both stayed and made sure to be able to catch the confetti canons ending. We didn't expect that and for that, we are so grateful. :) Our photos and videos are beyond amazing! Our guests cannot stop talking about their work. First time I saw them, I couldn't stop crying, because through their amazing work, they were able to help me relive my wedding day over and over again. :)
We recently got married in November of 2016. Our ceremony was on one day and our reception was on another. We had Ricky and Vicky as our photographers and Robert as our videographer for our ceremony and for the reception we had Ricky as our photographer and Robert and Vicky for videography. They did an AMAZING job both days! Our pictures and videos were everything we wanted! They were professional and friendly and it was such a pleasure working with them. We highly recommend them all!
The advice that I would give to other couples is simply stated: Book them! Gonzalo and Robert were beyond excellent. Not only were they great/easy to work with and genuine, the final products were amazing. While reviewing my pictures, I had many moments where I said "what a great shot, glad they got that image." The staff that assisted with the photo album and video editing were also great - that's what makes this team absolutely the best to work with from start to finish. They answered all of my questions, allowed me to come into the studio, and made sure I got what I wanted. I am using them for my upcoming maternity pictures.
Can't say enough good things about the team at Simply Captivating! Melissa did my Engagement Photos, Ricky and Vicky did my wedding photography and Robert did my Videography and I loved all of it! On top of the great quality of photos the customer service at Simply Captivating is great. They are so responsive and their prices are the best! I also just got my Wedding Album from them and could not be happier. I highly recommend any of the staff at Simply Captivating and plan to use them for the future :)
Simply Captivating is amazing!!!! From the moment I met Melissa and Ricky I fell in love!! They are so much fun, from the second you walk in for a meeting you feel like they are your best friends. You feel right at home.
Ricky was my photographer. He did my engagement and wedding photos. My engagement shoot was so much fun!! Ricky made me feel like a princess and the pictures came out to die for, so I couldn't wait for the wedding. And again, Ricky exceeded my expectations. My wedding photos are so beautiful. Once my wedding album arrived everyone was asking me "omg who is your photographer, amazing!"
So amazing that Ricky will be shooting my brother's wedding. Yayyyyy!!!
Thank you Ricky and Melissa for the best experience ever!!! I can't wait to have a baby so you guys can take the newborn photos!
Amazing photographer and a lot of patience which i am very grateful. thank you Ricky Iglesias
My Special Memories Captured On Film....Invaluable and Priceless.
I was referred to Captivated Films by way of my wedding and event planner, Carmen Mesa. My deepest gratitude and appreciation to the entire team at Captivated Film for the quality of their products, services and level of professionalism. From my initial contact, Javier communicated promptly to my emails and was readily available to assist with my concerns questions. In addition, their website is inspiring, user friendly, and self explanatory.
Videographers, Robert and Gonzalo captured our special day through their videography services....amazing! From beginning to end, Robert and Gonzalo were pleasant, easy to work with, true professionals! The post production team have also completed editing my package expeditiously!
Captivated Films are affordable and reasonably priced, they have something for every budget. I am so happy I have a quality video that I can view and share with family and friends for years to come.
My wedding was on April 8, 2017, and my photographer, Ricky, did an amazing job! He was extremely professional and treated all of my guests with the utmost respect. I can tell that he is very experienced in handling weddings because he captured the most beautiful photos with, what seemed like, minimal effort and time. Only three days after my wedding, I received over 1300 photos via email and every last one of them were absolutely breathtaking. With over 1300 photos, all of my special moments were captured and more! I was shocked that I received the photos so quickly after the wedding but even more amazed by the quality of the photos. I am a huge perfectionist, to say the least, and the quality of the photos captured by Ricky surpassed all of my expectations, which is not an easy thing to do. Trust me! He pays very close attention to detail and is exceptionally gifted at his craft. Upon receiving the photos, I shared them with my bridal party and many of my guests. To say that they were impressed by the photos would be a massive understatement. Usually, I don't write reviews but I felt obliged to write this review on behalf of Ricky. I highly, highly recommend Ricky for all of your wedding photography needs because, among other things, his work is phenomenal!
I would like to thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of my daughter's birthday on April 8 at Gymboree in Palm Beach Gardens! I have been wanting to write to you for weeks, but we are moving. My husband got a new job in Miami days after the party and since then, life has been crazy. We moved to my parents house and we are actively looking for a new place down here. Once you are used to the Palm Beach tranquility and beautiful apartments, finding a similar place in Miami becomes nearly impossible!
Well, about the pitures: we LOVED them! They truly captured the spirit of the birthday: colorful and with lots of happiness! You are truly amazing. Not to mention that we really enjoyed having you there. We hope to see you at Melissa's second birthday and please, come to party hungry!!!! Lol!
Thank you for capturing the important moments of our family!
