Fantasy Fest 2017 – From the Lens of a Key West Photographer

One of the first things that helped me get my start as a Key West photographer was Fantasy Fest.  People in costume, laughter, and creepy things fill the streets of Key West  the last full week of October every year.  Everyone and their brother becomes a photographer for the week, so the real challenge becomes getting photos that others don’t.  You walk the streets hoping to catch that glimpse of something unique happening,  and to tell the story of what […]

Key West Engagement Session – Megan & Josh – Marvin Key

I was so excited to go out to Marvin Key with Megan and Josh for their Key West engagement session! I met Josh a year ago while swordfishing with a local guide, and then went out fishing with him and Megan a few weeks later. They are a fun loving couple, who love the water and fishing like me.  So it is fitting that we did the shoot on one of the backcountry islands of the Florida Keys. I drove up to Cudjoe Key to […]

Lifestyle Photography – The Florida Keys Way

When you think of the words Lifestyle Photography many things come to mind.  When you specify that to an area like the Florida Keys and Key West even more comes to mind.  The Southernmost Point, Mallory Square, Hemingway, etc.  That’s what big business wants you to think the Florida Keys is comprised of.  In reality it’s hardly that.  There is a much more complex vision, yet can be simplified into one word; Paradise! 2016 has been an insanely amazing year […]

Sunset Key Wedding | Julia & Matt | Key West Wedding Photographer

A Sunset Key wedding can be described in one word: Destination.  You have to come to an island, to get on a boat to another island.  When you set foot on the island the sound of scooter horns, bicycle bells, car horns, and tour guides is gone.  You hear the water, the birds, and you take it all in.  The bougainvillea are in bloom, the palms sway,  the greens relax you.  To the mind it is very relaxing. Julia and […]
