About me

Armando Solares, founder of Solares Photography Inc., is an award-winning photographer based in Southwest Florida. 

After 10 years as a photojournalist for the Walt Disney Company, the Kansas City Star and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune – with his work published worldwide in TIME, Newsweek, The New York Times, the Dallas Morning News and other major publications – Solares kissed the corporate world goodbye, choosing the freedom of freelancing. 

Solares brings his keen eye and unique vision to all assignments. 

In recent years Solares has been commissioned to photograph weddings for clients in Florida, North Carolina, Texas and Guatemala. He photographs a limited number of weddings each year to keep his approach fresh. 

He photographs weddings the same as a news story, unscripted. He captures the intimate memories of the occasion as they happen, creating a visual story of the day. “I want to always make pictures people will remember."
