About Randy – Documentary Photography

Documentary Photography

Randy Borges

Thank you for making your way to my website and looking around. This is the part where you get to know me prior to our first meeting. I was born and raised in Miami, FL to Cuban parents. I am a husband, brother, dog owner, and proud father to my daughter and son. I think back to when I first held a camera, and it was in my childhood years. During my middle and high school years I started getting to use SLR cameras. During this time I was more focused on playing baseball and just being a kid. Once I graduated, I took on other hobbies like golf, fishing and boating, but still I would find myself snapping away with any camera that I came into contact with. Several years later, I found myself immersed into this world where I am fortunate enough to capture emotions through my camera and create memories for my clients. The more I photograph, the more I love to do it. The challenge of just getting the right angle, the correct exposure, everything about it drives me to be the best at what I love to do.

Now that you know the information you could probably find about me on through Social Media, these next bits of text will give you some of the random facts of what makes me…the only me.



  • Relaxing on a vacation drives me nuts. I need to be doing something.
  • I’m a sap when it comes to picking out movies.
  • I have been ordering a plain hamburger with  ketchup only from McDonald’s since I was 6 years old.
  • I am a certified scuba diver, but haven’t done it in years after having a scary incident in the water.
  • I require a minimum of 4 1/2 hrs of sleep to properly function.
  • When I hear music, I begin dancing…and that means you should be dancing too. Life is too short to sit and watch everyone else dance.
  • Barbecue sauce and ketchup should be considered their own food groups.
  • I used to dress pretty badly till I met my wife…sometimes I still do.
  • Drinking soda is not for me…I don’t like the fizziness.
  • I can taste the difference from different water brands but my favorite water has to be from the “filtered” dispensers at McDonald’s.

So now that you know those bits on me I will give you a more detailed breakdown of what I look for when couples contact me.

I am looking for that client that has already gone through and looked at all of my work. That shows me that you are actually looking to see if you like my work and that you are not just browsing around to see who you can get the best price from. In this world of wedding photography you definitely get what you pay for. I am completely aware that I am not for everyone, and everyone is not for me. I am okay with that  because my ultimate goal is to be paired up with couples that embrace me for the photographer I am and allow me to pour my heart & soul into their special day. My objective is to document your wedding as organically possible. What does that mean? It means that I want things to simply happen. The day has already been staged, and all you need to do is be present in the day. That takes me right into moments. Moments triumph every little thing at your wedding. Personally, capturing an image of mom and daughter having one final embrace before exiting the room is more important than taking a picture of your shoes hanging off of the balcony. Your shoes and all of the items you are wearing are important, but the human connection is what makes images resonate in our minds. Think of how many images your friends have of their gowns, shoes, and jewerly hanging on their walls or put in frames at their desks. You probably have never seen that unless there was a human connnection occuring within the image.

There will be many trends in weddings. I have fallen many times to these thinking that they work but in the end I always go back to what feels natural. That is why I document the way that I do and if you embrace that idea I invite you to contact me so that we go into what will make your day special.

Ready to say I do?
