Hi there! Welcome! We are husband and wife wedding photographers based in Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida. Our Philosophy is simple. We take beautiful photos to remember your special day. It’s your love story and your unique style that will make it’s way into your photos that will tell the story of your wedding day for yours to come. We combine both posed and natural moments for a stunning photographic collection that represents you, while bringing a calm, happy presence to your wedding day.
We are a husband and wife team of wedding photographers based in Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida. Summer is a master of light and has over 15 years of experience shooting weddings. He loves color and his photos are both vivid and bright. Becky acts as your second shooter and using natural light, captures those candid moments that happen in-between the poses. We are passionate about all things photography, coffee, and travel related.
You’ll notice a lot of our example pictures were taken on the beautiful island of Maui. That is where we met, got married, and worked as team shooting both weddings and portraits for the last five years. As much as we loved the island life, we are thrilled to be back on the mainland and closer to family. Being near Disneyworld is an added bonus. When we are not working, we enjoy watching movies, hanging out at the beach and spending time with our fur babies.

It began on the beach in Maui where Summer and I met 5 years ago. He had just moved to the island from Washington state with 1 suitcase and his camera, seeking sunny skies and new adventures. Yes, his name is Summer. His brother’s name is Sunshine. True story. I had also just moved to Maui from Missouri, excited for warm weather and sandy toes, but most of all looking to heal. Scar tissue from 7 abdominal surgeries after a car accident, had left me in chronic, daily pain. After trying what felt like EVERYTHING with little or no relief, I decided I would learn to be happy in spite of the pain. So, I moved to Maui, because in my mind, tropical paradise = happiness. You follow my logic, right?
Well, a few short weeks after moving to Maui, I scheduled a snorkel cruise. That morning, my boat was cancelled and I was moved to the Teralani, the same boat Summer was scheduled to go on.
I believe it was fate. He was not shy about introducing himself and of course took pictures to document the day. We were fast friends and within a few months I was smitten. He wasn’t phased by my scars or the slower pace I kept because of chronic pain. I fell in love with his kindness, positive attitude and contagious laughter. His passion for photography was also contagious. We have been taking photos together ever since that day and were married in May 2015.
Somewhere between starting a business and falling in love, I quit hurting. The physical pain I had been in for years, just went away. Maybe it was the warm weather and frequent dips in the ocean or possibly the extra vitamin D I’ve been soaking up. Summer believes it was love. Paulo Coelho says, “Willpower alone cannot transform you. Love can.” It sounds trite, but maybe love does heal all things.

“Everything from the initial contact to receiving our photos went absolutely perfect! A destination wedding can be stressful but working with Summer and Becky was a breeze. Becky was quick to respond to emails I sent prior to the day and Summer was able to capture our moments beautifully on our big day. We received our photos, conveniently stored on a flash drive and also available to download thru their website, in just 2 weeks....amazingly fast! You will receive nothing but quality from this duo!”
“They say you have to connect with your photographer for great shots, and I can say for sure that Summer and Becky make it very easy to pose naturally for the camera. We had our wedding photography done by love and style as well as our rehearsal boat cruise photos. The photo shoot sessions were very pleasant and they made sure to capture all moments from all angles in an artistic manner. They were very professional and caring with the aftermath of the photo shoot, and did an incredible job with photo enhancements and our photo album. Definitely choose love and style for any occasion if you are looking for an artistic and enjoyable ride capturing your memories! ”
