Based out of Miami, Florida, Avant Garde Weddings is more than just a wedding photography and videography company. We strive to be the "advance group" in everything we do and leverage new and innovative technology and ideas into every wedding we capture. With our parent company being Avant Garde Media, we started out as a boutique, creative/branding agency working for corporate clients in the fields of real estate & development, medical, retail, food and beverage, and non-profit. We have worked with clients such as the Related Group, Mount Sinai Hospital, The Fontainebleau and Saks Fifth Avenue among many others. Just this past year alone, we also had the opportunity to travel across the world to places such as India, Italy, Russia, China, Mexico and various others.
While traveling and working in these fields, we have become experts at our craft and have picked up unique skills that are only used in those professional settings. With a passion for capturing timeless moments at events, along with our extensive knowledge and experience in production, it was only natural that we developed a new passion for documenting weddings. We take this knowledge and experience and apply that to your wedding day.
- Jonathan "Rico" Arroyo (Owner of Avant Garde Weddings)
We are here to destroy your old fashioned, industry standard, wedding photography and videography companies. We want to break the mold of what your typical wedding consists of: boring photos, video footage captured on a still tripod; boring edits with boring music, 4-6 month turn around times, etc. We are in an era of technology where everything is immediate and viral. Why should your wedding day be any different? We separate ourselves by leveraging technology, social media, and innovative ideas with a passion and work ethic that produces extremely high quality work with insane turn around times.
Have you ever heard of a company using a 360 degree camera to give a unique virtual experience for a guest who couldn't attend, or a live online Facebook feed of your wedding ceremony? How about getting aerial images of your ceremony from our drones that you can share on a projected live instagram wall during your actual reception, just minutes after they were taken?!?! What about a live photo album shared with you and all of your guest's phones throughout the night or highlighted moments captured on snapchat?
At Avant Garde Weddings we like to focus on the details and intricacies of your special day. This allows us to capture quality images and provide consistent results. We emphasize the importance of providing you with added value at no extra cost. Our quality is unrivaled. We would love to share our portfolio with you in person so that you can get a true feel for the spirit of our work.
We are a team of hard working professionals who are committed to timeliness and execution. We start with getting to know you personally and understanding your vision. We maintain an open communication relationship with our clients at all times, and we will always be at your disposal. We want to transform your dream into a reality.
Working with us is more than just a transaction. We are devoted to our work and to the couples with whom we share it. We invest time in getting to know you and forming a bond. We want you to feel confident that we have your best interest at heart because it is the only way that you will be free in front of our lenses, and it will allow us to capture authentic moments. We only shoot one wedding at a time, therefore, you can rest assured that your wedding day will be our sole focus when it arrives.
