I’m a Happy Miami Wedding Photographer as this is my other beautiful Versace Mansion Wedding. I really love this venue! I used to have many pieces from Gianni Versace in my closet, and I always liked his style. Apparently Patricia too!
Patricia Longo is a celebrity makeup artist from New York, and she decided to walk down the aisle with her fiancé James Galvin Smith, Internet Media Executive at fabulous Versace Mansion. I clicked with her immediately and was excited for her big day! We did capture rehearsal dinner, the wedding day and luckily also after-wedding bridal shoot!
The after-wedding session is something I try to convince all my brides for. And Patricia knows why already. Well, and I promise, this is going to be a topic of my next blog post. I genuinely believe that this is a must for all high-end brides! Check our bridal session here.
What should I say? The wedding was fabulous! All details, Italian family, friends, food, service, music, literally everything was great! Patricia also had her Venetian Hour and wedding guests gifts were Versace candles!
Yes I know, there is one more thing! My couples in the ocean, or at least inside the pool is my thing. Almost my signature. And it happened again! I was able to convince my couple and their wedding party, that we will end up a fantastic night inside the pool! I still remember how some people thought that I’m crazy. But at the end of the night, there were at least 30-50 people! And you know what? This is not something new for me. But there still is something special. Guys, I did jump too!!! Obviously, after I was packed to leave, but I did jump in my tux. And I very much enjoyed it!
Now you can see why I said that I’m happy Miami Wedding Photographer. Working in the best venues with awesome people as one of the best wedding photographers is what I love!

“I thought she was a movie star,” recalls James G Smith of the moment he first laid his eyes on Patricia Longo across a crowded room at the Hotel Chantelle in New York City during a Warner Brothers Oscars party.
Jan had a vision not only for the wedding but also for the days before and after,” says Patricia. “He created a story that will last forever.“
