Musa Creativa (MC): Tell us about you and your work.
Luis: Hello! My name is Luis but I go by Lu. I’ve lived in Orland Florida for the past 12 years, but I was born and raised in U.S. Virgin Islands. I am an Elopement and Wedding photographer who specializes in capturing emotions that you feel, but can’t see. I also offer engagement, maternity, and couple boudoir sessions.
MC: What motivated you to build your photography business?
Luis: I am a hopeless romantic! (lol) I love the idea of being able to present a story that was captured through a lens. After my first couple session, I was instantly hooked and knew photography was my calling.
MC: How is your personality reflected in your work–capturing playful and creative photos?
Luis: I’m a positive, easy-going person, and I strive to go above and beyond. I try to give a stress free experience to each and every client. I love to have a good time and I want my clients to feel the same way during the session. As much as I’m an extrovert, I’m also an introvert. I guess an ambivert? I love being able to capture both playful and intimate moments.
MC: We love the picture of the couple on top of a Jeep overlooking the beautiful mountains. Can you tell the story behind this image?
Luis: This picture was taken on August 2019, in St. John Virgin Islands. Coming from the Caribbean, I envisioned visiting and photographing the beautiful landscape that it has to offer. I rented a jeep, reached out to a local couple, and drove to the top of a mountain to see this beautiful sunrise. This is Island Life!
MC: As a photographer, what keeps you in your creative zone?
Luis: I get many of my inspiration from various movies, music and workshops.
MC: If your playful and creative photos could dance, to which song or genre would it dance to, and why?
Luis: Let’s Groove by Earth, Wind, & Fire. The song represents having a good time and letting loose which is what I strive for in every session. We are all about good moods and creative vibes!

MC: How would you describe creativity?
Luis: I think creativity is envisioning an idea and turning it into reality. Being able to think outside the box, and doing something new.
MC: Lastly, who are you inspired by right now?
Luis: I am inspired by Jesus Rodriguez / Chuy’s photos. The way he creates art through pictures, is absolutely mind-blowing!
