For close to two decades, photographer Carlos Osorio has been preserving family memories at Miami Photo. He has documented more than 400 weddings, and his laid-back, journalistic style has been published in numerous media. Assisted by his wife Sandra, Osorio earned one of WeddingWire.com's Bride's Choice awards in 2009, 2010, and 2011. He turns brides' special days into prints at his own professional lab and converts images into products such as coffee-table albums, canvas prints, or high-resolution vinyl siding. Osorio also captures family portraits, parties, and quinceaňeras, and restores precious photos damaged by the passage of time.
The Miami Wine & Food Festival shares a litany of libations and local eats with curious sommeliers and gourmands. The chic, outdoor Taste & Toast event introduces gustatory glands to wines from around the world.

Winesplorers can stick around after the tasting for a Glenfiddich “Music to Drink Whiskey By” after-party at 9 p.m., where a DJ and whiskey-tamer rest on hand to answer questions and dispel myths about using whiskey as cologne.
