A native of Colombia, Juan moved to Florida after completing his bachelor’s in business administration to pursue his passion for photojournalism. But fate had other ideas – after studying commercial photography he was asked to assist at a wedding and has been delightfully hooked ever since. For Juan, weddings offer endless opportunities for creative shooting styles – and the ideal “marriage” of candid photojournalism and sublime art. That being said, Anthony Vazquez Photography was the perfect place to call home.
"I love weddings. I love being that pair of eyes, that captures the little details that might otherwise go unnoticed; I get to see the bride’s anxiety while getting ready, a mother’s proud eyes watching her daughter put on her dress, a father’s blessing, a groom’s nervousness…. and finally, the joyful calm a couple radiates once they are reunited at the altar. Every single moment is just spectacular, and I make sure that none are missed."
Juan truly loves being a photographer and like Confucius, he believes that if you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life. Besides photographing weddings, Juan loves street photography, dogs, traveling and playing soccer.
