The bride was a handy woman. She put together – with hammer, nail and screws, a small wood palette and painted it in pale blue and white.
Stenciled ‘love’ on the edges in alternate colors. Then added the 3 tier white, blue, white cake. With the ‘sea stars’ as a finish.
Economical – Wedding Cake $75 – pale blue and white vanilla cream 3 tier cake by @maggies_bakery_keylargo
Simple – Blue and white hand made wood palette. Small. Stencil ‘love’ Bride sold the palette to the resort for $100.
Satisfying – Pick your own colors. Style your own wedding. Enjoy a little profit. Wedding day can be profitable too!
if you told me I’d only shoot photo and film here until the day my hands can no longer hold a camera I’d tell you that is just 100% fine. thanks. because this is a heavenly spot.
These are not all secrets. Nor are they necessarily public. But most importantly they are my faves, and I live here. They are my faves because the best things have happened here. For so many people. Weddings, engagements, coming of ages and turning 21’s and family cuddles.
And now you know someone who knows the most Beautiful Places For Florida Keys Photography & Film. Don’t worry the list is always growing.
So let’s take a trip down the Overseas Scenic Highway, an All American Road and see one of the reasons this US1 merits those names. Could be on account of all those bridges over all that azure blue water on each side.
Atlantic Ocean or Florida Bay & Gulf of Mexico…it is really pretty.
One of my favourite places to shoot photographs, seriously, is a bridge. Right in the middle. If you want boats. Ocean views. Kite surfers. A bridge opening and closing.
The best place is 20 feet to the south side of the crack of Snake Creek bridge. The mile marker … and Lat Long…. Snake Creek Bridge is in Islamorada.
You can see the US Coast Guard Station looking to the bay side and the open azure glistening ocean over the other. And the beauty of this spot is it’s right next to the bridge guard…the person that raises the bridge when a boat that’s too big goes under from Ocean to Bay or vice versa.
If, like me, you want premium boating and Keys life style film and photography, those amazing and beautiful birds, jet skiis, and boats in motion, you want to fly your drone to capture them?
This is the BEST spot. Only downside it’s on the side of US1. YEP! Standing just north of the incline to Snake Creek bridge there is a lay-by. Where a car can pull off and sit out of traffic. The bridge opens on the hour, every hour, it is a perfect spot to be there ahead of time and shoot time-lapse. That would be my suggestion.
All of it, but also, actually the road leading to it outside, adjacent to US1’s scenic overseas highway, that All American Road, that one……actually, the walking pathway that leads right past it’s front door and the Tamarind Trail. Two of my very favourite spots on earth.
My newest most favourite place in the Florida Keys is Key Haven. No pale in particular here, just grab the camera, the sd cards and head down towards Key West, stopping to look at some of the most gorgeous neighbourhoods in the Florida Keys.
Whether it is a loving family photography session for you and the family at Bayside Inn in Key Largo, that you seek or the fact that as a mother of four and professional photographer I am actually truly loving family photography sessions this fall. Well either way. Loving is the verb and the adjective. Someone with a PhD in language please weigh in here!
The Key Largo Chamber of Commerce are an amazing resource for me. And all their members are lucky to have the advantage of their email blasts and other marketing that is included with membership. The seasonal family photo sessions below are ALL a result of the work of the Key Largo Chamber Of Commerce’s email blasts.
Every call I received has been in response the their marketing. So. Massive Thanks. Proud to support local business and the community. And I recommend sending them your marketing dollars this year. Instead of your out of town options.
Nothing works better than local business networking. Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Google Ads. Save it. Invest in the local chamber of commerce and other business network organizations. It works like word of mouth used to before covid.
‘CHILD OF TWO REFUGEES, MOTIVATED BY EMPATHY, FREEDOM & COMMERCE. VERY DEEPLY INSPIRED BY A DIVERSE WORLD & POWERFUL CULTURAL STORIES.’
The pandemic shrank all our lives to a few square feet. Lucky we could still walk dogs and go to the store. Not everywhere was so free. Other countries, the stories from the world wide social media and news….backed up by what we heard over the phone from people in Europe, India, Thailand.
Individual stories are incredibly hard to hear. Especially the ones that were describing getting stuck with no help, stuck far from home, no way to get back, not being allowed out at all to get food for the family, or necessary drugs. Loneliness. And no income. And slipping down into no hope. How did you cope? I stayed busy, insanely.
Climbing back out of that!! It has been a very challenging journey. For us all! I, personally maintained my emotional balance & survived by hugging the kids more, walking the dogs three times a day! Reading non stop. Staying away from negative stories and people. Avoiding anything but life threatening arguments. And polishing my film making and photographic skills. I have a few people to really thank for that!
I’ve seen and worked with some of these dreamy talents below. This group of talented photographing ladies are the not all based here but all work as Florida Keys Photographers on occasion. These are the ones I follow religiously. And love their stories the most. Their vibe, demeanor and general overall character are my faves. Their work has influenced me with a variety of soft hues and sharp focus and every kind of edit in between. Always professionally creative!
I have enjoyed you all ladies. In particular you kept me up and challenged during these last 12 months. Bravo! Do, please, continue being admirable.
