And though he’s captured countless A-list celebrities on film, Rodrigo Varela has a style that translates to life's most important moments, making every bride and groom feel like celebrities themselves, with images to rival those in any upscale wedding magazine. He shudders at the mundane and makes it a personal goal never to duplicate any photo he’s previously produced.

“The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.”
