Que día tan extraordinario con Jose y esposa Cynthia! Jose y su esposa, son dos bellas personas, educadas y sobre todo muy muy profesionales no solo en su trabajo de fotógrafos profesionales si no como seres humano. La comunicación con Jose fué 5 estrellas desde antes de hacer la reserva con ellos, me gusto su forma de ser, su liberta y el tiempo que busca para hacer la experiencia a la comodidad y gusto del cliente. Contacté a Jose la noche antes para dejarle saber que mi niña solo tenia 15 años y prontamente me contesto que no problemas, comunicación pronta y satisfactoria, yo como Cliente feliz! La sección de fotos empezó a su ahorra, nos encontramos y nos presentamos ellos muy amables y amistosos, a pesar del tiempo ellos hicieron su trabajo muy profesionalmente dando lo mejor de ellos y de su profesión. Conversamos muy amistosamente y ellos me pidieron que si quería podia estar en la sección de fotos con ellos y mi hija, cosa que hicimos y lo disfrutamos cada momento que estuve haya, las poses, los ángulos, el glamour, la atención, LA Profecionalidad de cada detalle, y compartimos una y otra ves las fotos travez de sus cámaras. Terminamos la sección de fotos entre risas y elogios, los que hacen sentir a todos como una princesa. Que derroche de profesionalismo! Jose y esposa, gracias por todo su tiempo, atención y profesionalismo, con ustedes no me equivoque, escogí lo mejor de South Beach Miami para mi experiencia de sección fotográfica! No se arrepentirán chicas y chicos, novias, novios, madres y amigas, los invito a todos que tomen esta extraordinaria experiencia y única con Jose, no se arrepentirán, garantizada 100%

I did a photoshoot with my best friend in Miami and it was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I had never done one, and they made me feel so comfortable and confident throughout the entire shoot! I would highly recommend them!

If I could give them ten stars I would! Highly recommend. The photos are absolutely stunning, but what’s even better is that these two are so kind and professional and make you feel comfortable from the minute you start posing and they start snapping fabulous photos.

Love my maternity pics! Made me feel very comfortable in such a sensitive state. Got so many awesome pictures I had a hard time picking the finals. Loved their chemistry and the fact that they both takes pictures with different lenses and angles. I will def use them again in the near future. More...

If you want souvenirs of your visit to Miami or even have lived in Miami for years, you MUST take advantage of this photographic experience! Jose and Cynthia are masters of their craft and will guide you through the entire shoot to obtain the best photographs in the beautiful natural light. They are both so personable and fun - I felt extremely at ease with them. They went above and beyond to ensure the best session - such as providing history about the city and even going out of their way to help me with my future travels (they are experts by the way - check out their travel blogs on Youtube [The Villas Channel]). Jose and Cynthia obtained amazingly stunning shots, and everyone has commented on the beauty of the photos. This experience is a definite highlight of my trip to Miami; I would do it again in a heartbeat and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone considering this experience!

This was our first photoshoot as a couple and we had a lot of fun. We wanted to have some nice memories of our stay in Miami Beach. Jose and Cynthia were so nice to us since the first minute, so we felt really comfortable while taking pictures of us. So, you can see this also at the pictures because they are really naturally and not fake. In addition to this, they showed us great spots in south beach! I highly recommend this photoshoot with Jose and Cynthia. You will definitely not regret this! I am so happy with our pictures that’s why we will hang up these in our flat!

Best regards from Germany

As a professional model with 16 years of experience, I can easily say that these photographers are highly talented, dependable, and super fun to work with. This was probably the most wonderful shoot I've been able to enjoy in my entire career, and it's even better that it was so personal. There equipment is top notch and their eye for detail rare. You will be comfortable and have lots of creative options so definitely bring scarfs or beautiful flowy things that blow in the wind. I I even was able to change my bikini by putting one on over the other and releasing the ties, (pro tip!) Enjoy, I know you will!! More...

It was an amazing experience! We’re both akward and camera shy, but they gave us an incredible feeling and we had a blast shooting with them. They also helped me plan the perfect engagement surprise for my girlfriend (now fiance :-) )! Thank you so much for this experience! More...

The ultimate power couple. These two made my grandma, my mom, and I feel super comfortable. They were very attentive and super friendly. It was our first time visiting Miami Beach and we wanted photos to remember the special occasion. I am super happy to have booked with them. They also had so much information to share with us about Miami Beach and the nearby restaurants. Our pictures were everything we had hoped for. Thanks Jose and Cynthia! More...

Jose and Cynthia gave us an amazing experience. It was our first time doing a couples photo shoot and they made us feel very comfortable. They brought us to awesome looking locations, gave us interesting information about Miami and guided us on how to look our best during the shoot. They made us feel so confident. They were so friendly and we had such a great time as they took our photos. They were extremely professional. This experience made my partner and I so happy. I highly recommend it to anyone looking at booking their services! Thanks Jose and Cynthia More...

WOW! Absolutely speechless, and we haven’t even gotten the finals back yet. If you are in Miami, for ANY reason, do yourself a favor and book with Jose and his awesome wife! They communicated quickly and thoroughly. They were timely and had amazing attitudes. I think we can all agree that sometimes booking things online can cause a little anxiety, since you don’t know what to expect. WELL LET ALL OF THAT GO, and BOOK THIS! We were comfortable, and had SO much fun. We didn’t want the session to end. We learned a ton about the city which was a bonus. The emotion that they capture in the photos is unmatched. Perfect experience. Whether you are new in the area, just visiting, or a longtime resident. We have had ALOT of photo shoots over time, but THIS by far was our absolute favorite. Thank you so much for such a great experience. More...

Nós amamos a nossa experiência com o Jose e a Cynthia. São muito simpáticos e nos fizeram sentir à vontade durante a sessão de fotos. Recomendamos a todos!!!

Jose and Cynthia were awesome. They were prompt and very flexible. I added another person to the shoot at the last minute, and they had no problems with charging the standard cost per person to have him added. I was nervous to do the shoot with my toddler but they made us all feel comfortable and guided us to capture some of Miami’s beautiful scenery with some awesome poses. We are so looking forward to see the pictures! Jose and Cynthia started off our morning in Miami perfectly! Looking forward to doing another photo shoot with them! More...

I had the honor of having Jose & his wife take care of me during my vacation. I hired them for two photo shoots in Miami Florida and couldn’t be more happier with the selection of photos I received. Really great people to work with, they made me feel comfortable from the start. I will definitely hire them again if I’m in the area. More...

Thank you so much,

If you are looking for a photographer in the South Beach area this is the one to chose! I live in Texas and was taking a girls trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. I was a little skeptical when I hired someone without knowing them. Jose and his wife were so professional. They not only provided me with some awesome photos, they did it in record time! Can’t thank you enough Villas Channel Photography!!! More...

I literally cannot articulate what a great experience it was doing our engagement photo shoot with Jose and Cynthia.We did our shoot in Miami (South Point Beach) early one Saturday morning. The early time was to avoid the hottest (sweatiest) and busiest time at the beach.

I had to admit that I had thought engagement photos were always cheesy. (holding a chalkboard that says “I said yes”, back to back hands in pistols….ew). I have two degrees in Art History, so suffice to say I am picky when it comes to visual media.
Jose and Cynthia did not pose us in any of those stereotypical ways. They made us feel really comfortable. They did a great mix of close up and wide shots. They used their trained eyes and intuition to capture amazing, incredible shots. They delivered an incredible variety of shots including, close ups, wide shots with beautiful backdrops of with the architecture and beach...stunning.

Their amazing, easygoing, warm personalities allowed us to open-up, be ourselves and really enjoy ourselves. Their chemistry as a married couple was lovely to be around. We liked them so much we are crunching numbers to fly them out to our wedding in Toronto, Canada. If you are trying to pick a photographer in Miami… Go with Villas Jose and Cynthia are THE BEST.

Thank you to Jose and Cynthia for the most memorable experience we ever had in a vacation!
It was our first photoshoot ever and Jose and Cynthia made us feel very comfortable and always helped us find the perfect pose. Everything from the beginning to the end (planning where to shoot and holding a short briefing beforehand) was done in a very professional manner. We loved their style how they worked together and how they fulfilled our wish to take the most natural photos of us - they even gave us interesting information about the lovely area where we held the photoshoot!
We definitely recommend to book Jose & Cynthia for anyone who is seeking for a professional photoshoot!!
Thank you again, it couldn't have been better!
Robert & Christina

Jose and his wife Cynthia are an awesome team. They went above and beyond to make sure our photoshoot experience was excellent! We travelled to Miami from Tennessee, so we knew nothing about the area or photographers. We are so happy that we picked them. Our Lyft driver got lost and dropped us off in the wrong location. Jose and Cynthia were very patient with us and helped us get to the shoot location. They gave direction so well and made us few comfortable. I felt beautiful during the shoot with their compliments. I cannot wait to see the photos when we get them back. Thank you Jose and Cynthia for an awesome photoshoot and for being willing to capture these moments for my husband and I! More...

Most important thing is focus and lighting. Customers need to know that when hiring a photographer the most important thing on a photo is that the photo is focus and good lighting.
Villas Channel knows that this are the secrets for great photos

who are you and tell me a little bit about you! Its always great to have a feeling of the client, his or her personality, their taste when it comes to photography. It is also important to create a good idea of the people we are shooting for best results

social interaction and outdoor office, A Family Portrait at beach. We love this type of projects because we were located with the perfect background: South Beach sunrise at 6:45 AM. Our clients loved and were amazed by how the light, the water, the sand, and the weather was at that time. They were happy they accepted to start the photo session at that time, because we completely understand that getting up early is a mission specially when you are in vacation and with 2 babies. It lasted 45 minutes, because we take care of families with children, due to the fact that babies get tired easily. The result was amazing, about 200 perfect photographs.

We starting focusing more in Video and Photography the moment we wanted to share our most valuable memories. We started creating content, and founded a Youtube channel document our lifestyle and experiences in traveling. We are passionate about traveling, so we began creating visual content by filming our adventures and photographing the most amazing landscapes in the world. From Spain, to Italy, Turkey, Greece, Emirates, Bahamas, Curacao, Aruba, Mexico, and many other countries and cities, we were so inspired and lucky to be able to travel. Our youtube channel goes by our same name: Villas Channel. Then from that, photography has always been part of our life, and capturing and documenting other's special moments, is what motives us to do even more.

because we do:
We work with a variety of clients: local people, local companies, tourists, international companies. We focus in the following: - Couples Portraits / landscape - Family Portraits (4-5 people) - Group Family Portraits - Fashion / Editorial Portraits: Models and Bloggers are common in this area - Engagement photoshoots - Surprise engagement proposals (YES! we have been paparazzis) - Videography and Photograph Weddings, Destination weddings - Videography and Photography for Corporate events - Product Shots - Headshots for corporate profiles (Business, social media) - Pet Photography and Videography
