I'm super happy with the services provided by Cyril; she is our photographer since two years ago, every anniversary, birthday, my kid's recitals. We are inlove with her; she is super cute and lovely, you will feel super comfortable with her, she even carries a speaker and tell you to put your music, so you relax and enjoy.

Cyril is a super star teacher.
When I first meet her I didn't know how to use my camera, I was only using auto mode, and I wanted to be more in charge of what I was doing, so I decided to take lessons with her. A friend recommended her to me, I wasn't sure at first cause I thought I could learn from my self, but she knows a lot, is extremely friendly and loves photography, she is super happy when we go for a shoot, and I'm getting nice pictures.
Love her and her lessons, still taking lessons with her and will keep doing it. Love our shoots in Wynwood and early morning in Downtown Miami especially.
She is the best.
