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. Together, we create a stunning photographic collection that represents you, while bringing a fun, happy presence to your wedding day.  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.

Our Love Story Next...

It began on a beach in Maui, where Summer and I met 6 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, 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.

BEHIND THE LENS

“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.   Both 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 on our photo album.  Definitely choose love and style for any occasion if you are looking for an artistic and enjoyable ride capturing your memories! ”

“We can't say enough about how amazing Summer and Becky are as people and as photographers!  Our pictures came out above and beyond our expectations. I sent some pictures to Becky showing her what I wanted our wedding pictures to look like and she found the perfect spots to make each picture happen. They are very reasonably priced and we would recommend them to anyone. You can tell they really love their career and do everything to make sure their clients are happy.”

“Wow, we cannot say enough about Summer and Becky! They were personable, creative, and professional in every way! We had such a fun photography session with them and they were so friendly that we felt comfortable with them from start to finish! It is amazing to see this couple working in action; Summer captured a lot of very unique shots, while Becky took some amazing side angles and other special pictures of my bouquet, shoes, etc.!   We couldn't have asked for a more positive experience!  Thank you so much for being a special part of our day, Summer and Becky!”

“We recently had Love and Style photograph our wedding and they did and outstanding job. Planning a destination wedding is not the easiest thing in the world when you are unfamiliar with the area and have the disadvantage of not knowing anyone. Summer and becky made the process nice and easy and helped make my day as stress free as possible. They made sure to stay in communication with me throughout the whole process.  they made us feel 100% comfortable the whole entire time. Hopefully we will be able to work with them again for our 1 year anniversary!”
