His journey wouldn’t be possible without the love and support of his incredible parents and family who sacrificed anything and everything they could to help him succeed. He was the first in his family to go to college, and he overcame many barriers with their selfless support. My parents have also been such an important part of his college and medical school years. We couldn’t have done it without them either. Something as major as a medical degree takes a community effort, and we are so grateful for everyone who has been there for Brandon over the years.
When we first started dating and I was in high school, he talked about where he wanted to go to medical school from our first date. This has been such a long road (and still not over - 4 more years of residency!), but I wouldn’t give it up for anything because I know the world needs him in this role. We need people like him, who are good listeners and empathetic humans to keep bringing the “care” part to the forefront of healthcare.

The Fúfu, smashed green plantain, as a component of this dish points to the culinary influence of West Africa that migrated with the slave trade. Cuban fúfu is more seasoned with garlic and firmer in texture than its West African originals that are intentionally “plainer” to be vehicle for stews. (Please flick back to my posts from February 20, 2021 and October 26, 2018). Also, only in Cuba did the dish keep its West African name whereas it is known as mofongo in the Dominican Republic.
Quite recently, I learned the word “masitas” aka chunks from studying menus and surmise that the default meat is pork. This pork is seasoned and crunchy, which is a nice foil to the softer fúfu texture. Pictured here is the appetizer portion.
As a language learner, I noticed the placement of the accent mark, which is different from many accented Spanish words where the stress is on the last symbol. Does this mean that FOO-foo is the intonation that came from Westerm Africa whereas I would pronounce it as foo-foo without any stress indication as written in English. If anyone knows, please leave in the comments below. Many thanks in advance.
Update: Betty’s comment below makes sense to me and consistent to what I learned through the years. I am guessing that I saw a typo.

This is another beautiful couple I have had the honor to document and get to know! So sweet! So loving! So kind! And so much fun! So much so that the rain could not stop us! Originally they wanted a colorful, fun and location hopping photos throughout Little Havana BUT the rain had other plans 🤣 and I’m not complaining!
Sadly, as much as I would have LOVED to capture their wedding and shared their story with you through my images, I was already booked. 😭 Nonetheless we got to share this time together and it went AMAZING!
If you have your eyes set in a specific photographer, book them as soon as you know! Dates fly and hearts will be broken!
Be on the look out for more cute scenes from Alex and George’s engagement session!

Possibly the best coffee I’ve ever had, at maybe the best bakery even. The food of Miami was seriously such a treat 🤤
These were my faves & ones I’d recommend! Be sure to save this for later! 📌
☕️ Versailles Bakery: Cafecito, cafe con leche, y Cafe La Carreta (their own premium espresso). Also enjoy croquetas, pastelitos, y empanadas.
🍕For some authentic Italian (at least, the family sure seems authentic, I’ll see more on the pizza this fall!), try La Leggenda Pizzeria along Española Way. We had the Margherita of course, as well as the Salame & Bell Peppers, two of their award winning pizzas — and we see why they won awards!🥇
🌮 Pink Taco: hopefully coming soon to Vegas, or so we were told! Go during happy hour! 💖
🍦Azucar: Abuela Maria was my fave flavor, but they have SO many to choose from
⛓️ Ball & Chain: bar right next to Azucar! Delicious drinks, good vibes, and great to see Calle Ocho.
🫔 La Industria: inside Bayside Marketplace, this place had delicious empanadas! Caught them as they were closing, but it was delicious.
🦜 Margaritaville: Whether you love it, or love to hate it, Florida sure has you covered here. This was our first ever time at one, and you might just find me and javronan at the next one down the list!
What did we miss that we need to go back and try? 😋
The Austin Hope is a classic Cabernet from Paso Robles. Young but very approachable.
Versailles is a famous Miami establishment for Cuban cuisine. The food is comforting and the service was terrific.
