WHAT TYPES OF WEDDINGS DO YOU DO?
Weddings are our passion and our specialty. Whether you are having a intimate ceremony with 30 people at a park or having 200 guests in a cathedral, we will eagerly tell your story. We highly recommend a minimum of 6.5 hours of photography coverage. With our eye for capturing natural light, our couples appreciate our more romantic, airy, and whimsical style.
We take great joy in meeting with each of our couples to understand their vision for the day and create a photography package that best fits their needs. From charming elopements to extravagant Indian weddings, we work with each couple to create a time line and package unique to them. In other words, we do all types of weddings!
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are blessed to be in the SUNSHINE STATE! Our main office is in Lutz which is 30 minutes north of downtown Tampa. We shoot regularly throughout the Tampa Bay area and surrounding cities including: St. Pete, Sarasota, Brandon, Brooksville, Dade City, Orlando, Lakeland, Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, and of course the gulf coast beaches. We also travel and do destination weddings. As much as we enjoy photographing the journey of our couples, we love an adventure too! New locations inspire us and so we often find ourselves following are beautiful couples. We have had the pleasure of capturing weddings around the globe including: Maine, North Carolina, New York, California, Maryland, Georgia, Tennessee, Bermuda, Illinois, Colorado, Texas, Nevada, Michigan and Mexico. If you would like to help us put a new tack on our map, simply reach out to our office to go over the plan!
WHAT IS THE LIFELONG STYLE?
Our style is bright, whimsical, romantic, and timeless! We aim to create images that are beautiful and of great quality, that transcend the changes in trends and fads. We love to capture that glow that only natural light and being in love can create! Photoshop tricks and camera hacks come and go, but a well-thought-out composition of a bride with the sun gentilly cascading down her shoulders will never go out of style. We want the warm light and passion to shine through every piece of our work. You’ll find all of us to be the hopeless romantic types! We love natural light and are inspired by nature and love.
DO YOU HAVE 2 PHOTOGRAPHER PACKAGES?
Yes! Our 2nd shooters have been trained by Lifelong Photography Studio to shoot the same style as our lead photographers. They are professionals that you can trust and have been chosen by Lifelong Photography to join the team and are trained to shoot weddings. We don’t drag our spouses out of the house, give them a camera, and convince them that their ultimate passion in life is photographing weddings. Our seconds are in love with shooting weddings and feel blessed to have the opportunity to use their craft.
Some companies use the second photographer as a bag and light carrier, not allowing them to leave the side of the lead. We don’t believe in that. Our seconds are so much more. There are many benefits to having two photographers at your wedding and we always suggest it. You will get more candid, more detail photos, and more moments captured. Having a second photographer allows us to be in 2 places at once! It’s simply magical!
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Yes! We include an engagement session with all our wedding packages. We find them to be a great time to connect and get to know you better before the wedding day. Many of our couples bring props or choose locations that are unique to them. We offer these session at our preferred locations around the area including: Lettuce Lake Park, Ybor City, Davis Island Garden Club and Yacht Club, and our favorite field in Lutz. Expect a small fee for us to travel far but we are always up for an adventure and love shooting at new places. Engagement sessions are not only great practice for the wedding, they are also so much fun!
DO YOU DO ELOPEMENTS?
Yes! We love, love, love shooting these special types of wedding days. All of us tend to be the sensitive/hopeless romantic types, so intimate events are something that we really enjoy! We love that we get to focus on the couple and on their love and personalities. It gives us a chance to have fun and get creative at your pace.
DO YOU DO BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY?
Yes! Boudoir sessions are super fun! Our female photographers are boudoir experts. Due to the nature of them, we do not post examples online. However, we do welcome you to visit the studio to see some inspiration photos. Not only do we ensure you will have an amazing time feeling like a supermodel for a day, the look on his face when you give him this one-of-a-kind gift makes your effort totally worth it! If you are interested in booking one, simply reach out to schedule a time to go over the details with the photographer. We have some locations that we recommend and also some fun theme ideas!
