Suzuki GS500F | Carlos Valentino PhotographyThis September has proven to be the busiest month of the year for me. I photographed Alyssa & Daniel and Sofia & Pedro at the Croatian Center and Liz and Nic at the Brookshire Gardens. I invested a weekend and received my endorsement from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, test rode the Buell Blast but purchased a Suzuki GS500F and got surgery!!! I’ve been recovering for a few days and now that I’m out of bed I am looking forward to editing my friends wedding images, having wedding consultations with engaged couples and in a few weeks going on a spin on the bike.

Buell Blast | Croatian Center Wedding | Recovery Day

Croatian Center | Carlos Valentino Wedding Photographer
Photographing Weddings is what I love to do. To see families getting together, sharing tears and laughter is the best. However, as a photographer, the next day I feel like I ran the Boston Marathon. Mark and I photographed Alyssa and Daniel’s wedding at the Croatian Center last night. I had so much fun that I even danced with the Bride!!!

Buell Blast | Carlos ValentinoToday is my recovery day and I decided to get a jump on my search for a motorcycle / Scooter. After the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course I’ve been searching on Craiglist for a machine that I can call my own. This morning I was lucky to try out a 500cc Buell Blast. I like the history of the Buell and the type of engine it has but after riding for 15 minutes I had to come to terms with the fact that the bike is a bit small for me; so it’s back to Craiglist. Maybe I’ll get lucky and barter my wedding services for a cool Motorcycle or a Maxi Scooter.
