We are a small family owned and operated wedding and portrait photography company with over 15 years of experience. Anna Maria Island is hands down our favorite place to photograph weddings. Lighting at the beach is a bit different than other places. We use a combination of natural light and off camera flash, a must in order to capture the vivid and bright colors our clients have loved for over a decade. Shooting at the beach is our specialty. We are prepared for the unique beach lighting with experience and expert equipment. We know all the best places on the island and all the local vendors to help you with every aspect of your wedding day.


 

Love and Style Photography is Anna Maria Island's leading Wedding Photography team. We understand that Anna Maria Island beach weddings can range from beach casual elopements to upscale luxury events with 50-100 guests.  Our unique book by the hour pricing allows you to create a package that fits your needs. We enjoy photographing small intimate beach elopements in addition to half day or full day events. 

We are Summer and Becky Whitton, photographers and founders of Love and Style Photography. We met and fell in love on the beautiful island of Maui 12 years ago. We combined our talents and passions to create our photography business together. We moved to Bradenton in 2017 to be closer to family and continue our love of photography in beautiful places. Spencer, our nephew, moved here in 2020 to join our Anna Maria Island wedding photography team. He acts as lead photographer and photo editor, while helping me out with office stuff from time to time. I (Becky) 2nd shoot, manage the schedule, the daily workflow and overall keep us organized and on track so the photographers can focus on what they love, shooting and editing. The team affectionately calls me the "Beckretary." When booking your session, you will likely be corresponding with me. I can't wait to hear from you! Let's plan your Anna Maria Island wedding photography session today! When we are not working, we enjoy watching movies, hanging out at the beach and spending time with our cats, Meli and Ginger.  

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. We moved to Florida 5 years ago from Maui. That is where we met, got married, and worked as team shooting both weddings and portraits for the last five years.  


Hello! I’m Spencer, the nephew of Becky & Summer. I originally hail from Columbia, Missouri but I was born in Jacksonville so I’m a Florida boy at heart! My greatest passion in life is traveling and meeting new people along the way. Traveling taught me how special it is when you capture a moment between friends, families, and loved ones while they are experiencing some of the happiest moments of their life, and I have found it infinitely fulfilling doing so. That is why, when Becky and Summer called me up and asked me to be a part of the Love and Style team, I jumped at the opportunity. I have received excellent mentorship from Summer and Becky and have been trained to create the same stunning photos that they have for over a decade. I would truly be honored to not only take your photos but also get to know you and your loved ones along the way, this way we create a comfortable environment which allows your personalities to truly show and me to capture them for eternity.

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, I booked 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.
