Gio provided us with wedding photos we couldn't have even dreamed of! His creativity and eye for photography are impeccable. He is funny, kind, and super easy to work with. We had a destination wedding in Miami Fl, and used his knowledge of the area to capture some shots that will be displayed in our home forever. The bridal party was also very pleased with the individual portraits that Gio took. Gio is responsive, attentive, flexible. Gio's ability to capture the energy of an event is excellent, and I strongly recommend him to any bride. Gio is also willing to travel within the US and around the world to capture your special day--so even if you aren't in Miami, consider using Gio. His beautiful portfolio attests to the quality photography he provides. We hope we can hire him for more work in the future!

I found Gio thought this website and it immediately caught my attention. I was looking for something different from the standards and dynamic, but at the same time to capture those moments that you could look back at. Gio knew exactly what we were looking for and did an outstanding job. He was always available and he was great to work with. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed and you can tell he really has that artistic eye. He gave us a package that met all of our needs, which also included our engagement photos. These photos really help to get to know each other and to see what works best.
I'd definitely recommend Gio to all the brides and if I were to have any other event, he would definitely be my photographer!!!

Gio Morales aka Photographer Extraordinaire!
The Energy and Passion that exudes from someone who truly loves what they do for a living is very rare to come by... however, from our first encounter with Gio, we knew he was in love with Photography... A true artist who cares about his clients and their vision, as well as creating masterpieces... And so we decided he would be the one to capture our big day.
And he did just that... Captured each moment just how we asked and imagined.... with Sophistication, Class, Beauty and a true eye for Art, framing our memories non-intrusively from behind the scenes.
And to top it all off, Gio and his team were a pleasure to work with... Patient, Professional and Kind... We couldn't have asked for more from him on such a memorable and meaningful day in our lives.
We highly recommend Gio Morales Photography and will definitely be using him in the future.

My husband and I call him Gio the Genius. We had the pleasure of having Gio Morales as our wedding photographer on January 18th/2014. Gio's artistic eye is unparalleled, his vast experience shining through from the first snap of his shutter. We appreciated Gio's creativity, as well as his patience. During what could be a nerve-wracking day, Gio kept us calm and smiling throughout. Our pictures were delivered quickly, and looked even more beautiful than we imagined. On top of it all, he provides his top-notch services at a significant value to the other "big name" wedding photographers. We love Gio, and look forward to working with him for many years to come. I can't possibly recommend him highly enough.
PATRICK & AMESHA
I worked with Gio throughout the process of planning my out of town wedding. Since I couldn't get to his studio before my wedding, we talked via Skype. There was an instant connection and chemistry that I hadn't felt when speaking to other photographers. He showed me some of his story books and I was amazed. The way he shoots and edits photos makes you look like a superstar. Which is exactly what you want on your big day. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.
MICHAEL & DAYAMY
Wow! Words can not express how amazing Gio Morales is! From the moment we met him we knew he would be our photographer. His imagination and creativity is amazing! He is the best photographer I have ever met. I am so grateful for meeting him. Our engagement pictures are phenomenal. We chose very unusual locations for our pictures, but Gio made them look so amazing! Everyone that has seen the pictures swear that they are part of a magazine spread. A wedding is very special. However, after the wedding what's most important are the pictures. I am 100% sure that I will have the best pictures! Thank you so much for being as creative and amazing as you are!
TANYA & ULRIK
Gio was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I are both not super comfortable in front of the camera but Gio made us feel at ease, he made it fun, and the photos turned out AMAZING. One thing I also want to say is that he was so professional throughout the entire process-- from the initial conversations and the engagement shoots through the wedding day and beyond. We still keep in touch with Gio and can honestly say that not only did he capture our day perfectly but we gained a true friend. HIGHLY recommend Gio!
GIUSEPPE & MARIELA
Gio I am sure you hear it all the time, but we could never explain how much we truly love and appreciate the pictures. I never had a doubt in my mind that you would do a great job, especially after we met you for the engagement pictures. After a year of planing our dream destination wedding on La Romana, Dominican Republic we took the best decision choosing you as the photographer, fortunately La Romana Shined and delivered a gorgeous spring afternoon.
What an absolutely beautiful job you did on capturing all the special moments of that memorable day!" Gio Morales listened to what was important to me and delivered it so easily, so effortlessly, and so exactly that I could savor the day, my family and my wedding.
" Thank you Gio from the bottom of our hearts, you exceeded our highest expectations"
MANNY & STEPHANIE
Gio Morales is by far an exceptional photographer! His vision, professionalism and keen eye for creative detail makes him a fantastic asset for any occasion. The photos I received for my engagement session far exceeded my and my husband's expectations. I have a very good feeling our wedding photos will be even better! Gio is the type of photographer who makes you feel like you are in a magazine. I found him extremely easy to work with compared to other photographers I worked with in the past. He makes you laugh and feel comfortable in your surroundings. He develops a personal relationship with you and commits himself to getting the best shot possible. He is a true master at his craft! :)
JESSICA & TRYGVE
Gio was awesome to work with and his work is beautiful and very unique - would highly recommend!!!
Lets start by saying that Gio Photography gave us the best gift a bride and groom can ask for… He listened to our needs!
I used to modeling and from my experience in order to get the best pictures you have to enjoy the moment and have fun, and that’s exactly what I was looking in a photographer. In the other hand my husband was very concerned because he doesn’t know how to smile or at least try to when in front of a camera.
Right after our first meeting with Gio, my husband and I leave the place with not only a smile in our face but with the crazy idea of doing a “trash the dress” session just by looking to his work. He even agreed to stay one more day in Chicago after the wedding to shoot our trash the dress session. That’s something that we wont ever forget ☺
After our big day my husband understood the importance of a good photographer who was not going to take pictures of us but to documentary those moments that were alive and emotionally honest.
I just want to express my gratitude for our wonderful images that make us laugh, cry, and feel our special day all over again. Thanks Gio! We can’t wait until we get married again… with the same person of course ;)
HUGO & VANESSA
Gio was there every step of the way & he had a more photo journalism style which I loved.
I received many compliments on my wedding pics & I recommend his business!
EDUARDO & YELIXA
This review is a bit late, but I just wanted to be sure I wrote a very honest one. Gio was not on my wedding planner's vendor list. After interviewing many photographers (including some close friends), Gio was definitely what we were looking for. His presentation was amazing! It showed his professionalism and passion for the work he does. We immediately clicked! (And when I say "we", I'm including my husband!)
Gio did a good job capturing our special day, even though things were a bit hectic, because time just flies by that day, he stuck by us, was very flexible, extremely sweet, and understanding. We were able to explain what we wanted and he was able to capture it.
I am very uncomfortable in front of the camera, but he definitely knew how to make me laugh, make me comfortable, and pose without looking fake. He was VERY patient with me!
He was able to capture the essence of our day, by capturing genuine emotions. He has a gift of capturing photos quietly and putting people at ease. And he's easy going and just so sweet! He managed to make the whole experience fun!
And throughout the process of making the photo book, he listened carefully to all my comments and we were on the same page on what result we both wanted. So understanding, communicative and open to suggestions. He's just a pleasure to work with and exactly the type of professional you need when organizing a wedding, because you just know you're in good hands!
He has become a very special part of our lives! We will definitely contact him for future events (like a pregnancy session! ;)
ALEX & MELISSA
I am above and beyond words with the service provided. Before meeting Gio, I met with 18 other photographers in Miami and Broward (none of which had studios- or were half as professional as Gio was). From the moment I met him I was enthralled with his work and his passion for the art. He treated us like family and provided reassurance that everything would turn out perfect. For our engagement photoshoot, he went above and beyond to capture everything we wanted. This past weekend was our wedding, and he did the same. He stood by our side like family and laughed with us each and every second. I dont think our wedding would have been the same without him and WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL. THANK YOU SO MUCH GIO! WE LOVE YOU!
TONY & NATALIE
It was my pleasure to give you the opportunity to capture the memories of our day. I just finished viewing all the pictures and I love them! I am very pleased with the moments you captured that I wasn't even aware you were taking a picture of. Also, I really enjoyed the pictures of all the small details of the ceremony and reception which will help me remember all the little things in the years to come. The quality of the pictures are amazing and I can't wait to display them in my home.
Thank you again for helping to make my wedding day a day I can relive through your pictures forever.
BRUNO & VALENTINA
The testimonial that I have to give is in case you haven’t met Gio Morales. So to all of you that don’t have the pleasure yet, I don’t think I have the vocabulary to really describe the magnificent person and professional that he is, but I’m going to try.
I actually wanted him to do my wedding pictures and due to his agenda he couldn’t do them, but he did my engagement pictures. My husband is a little difficult (with that I mean veryyyy difficult) when it comes to taking pictures, he’s not used to them; he never likes the way he comes out and definitely doesn’t like having them taken.
Gio got to our house and just started to get to know us as a couple a little more and especially my husband because he had not met him before, this part is crucial to any wedding or engagement session, if you don’t have chemistry with the photographer the pictures will reveal this and will not come out as beautiful.
Gio made my husband comfortable with the camera and comfortable posing for him. It was amazing what he got out of him; I actually love my engagement pictures more than my wedding pictures. The other aspect that makes Gio very unique is the eye that he has for photography and composition; his pictures are creative, artistic, conservative yet modern, in one word Perfect! I would definitely recommend him for any occasion. Thanks Gio!
ALEX & AMANDA
My husband and I don't take many photos and were not the most natural subjects to photograph but Gio made us feel comfortable and gave us great direction. Our photos came out beautiful!
