B OCEAN RESORT WEDDING // CATHERINE + STEPHEN // SOUTH FLORIDA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

You never know where or when Mother Nature is going to show herself.  It is one of the situations you are always ready for.  Its an important part of being a destination wedding photographer.  Hurricane Irma caused many weddings to be canceled, but luckily many of mine where moved or rescheduled.  This is the case of Catherine and Stephens wedding.  It was supposed to take place at Little Conch Key, but we had to move it to Fort Lauderdale, and […]

STEPHANIE + SCOTT // FLORIDA KEYS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // KEY LARGO BAY MARRIOTT

When people schedule their weddings they never think about having to deal with a hurricane.  It isn’t something you think about.  It happened to many people this year in the Florida Keys, but having an all star vendor team allows you to feel secure.  Stephanie & Scott were originally slated for Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle in Islamorada for their Florida Keys wedding.  When Hurricane Irma hit, it damaged the resort so we moved it up the Florida Keys to […]

SOPHIE + SHAUN // KEY WEST ENGAGEMENT // FORT ZACHARY TAYLOR

  Fort Zachary engagement’s are special to me.  Its one of my favorite places in Key West, and many couples feel the same way.  So naturally I like to take couples to Fort Zachary for engagement sessions.  Sophie and Shaun are a couple of outdoors loving people, so Fort Zachary was perfect for the two of them.  They share a love for the water, their dog Moose, and fly-fishing together.  We had been trying to plan this shoot for some […]

GABRIELA + JESSE // SOLAR ECLIPSE KEY WEST ENGAGEMENT // SNIPES KEY

  Sometimes mother nature doesn’t work with you, then sometimes she mysteriously appears.  Gabriela and Jesse can tell you all about that and their Key West engagement session.  Snipes Key is not a place that you jump in the car, drive to park, and just start shooting.  It takes timing of the tides, the right wind and the right skies.  We tried to get their engagement photos shot numerous times.  We never could seem to line up all three of […]

Katie & Matt – Hyatt Centric – Key West Wedding Photographer

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 & Hurricane Irma – The REAL story from Key West!

When you mention the Florida Keys, EVERYONE immediately says Key West.  For many the thought process of the Florida Keys being something completely separate from Key West doesn’t exist.   That carries over to the national media, and the misleading narrative continues.  Hurricane Irma did strike the Florida Keys & Key West.  Yes it had an impact, but from what the national news media tells you, it’s completely opposite to an extent. When the news of Hurricane Irma came, many […]

Key West Wedding | Jackie & Paul | Freas Photography

A Key West wedding is a special day for all parties involved.  The bride and the groom start their new family in Key West, and the photographer is given all access to document their day.  These two were made for each other before they even met.  I met with them to discuss their Key West wedding months before the date, and getting to know them in that process was great!  They took the reigns themselves and planned it out.  They […]
