Shelby & Mikey | Key West Wedding Photographer | Schooner America 2.0

Shelby and Mikey have been together for 15 years.  A true love story that started when they were 16.  Shelby lived in Key West prior to the wedding, and her love for the ocean and the Florida Keys Landscape brought them to Key West again to spend their special and memorable day.  She wanted to convey a day of Eclectic love, Artistic Impression, and Natural surroundings, thus the decision on Key West.   They chose America 2.0 Weddings as their venue.

Shelby works in the field of wildlife rehabilitation and Mikey is a graduate of Berklee College of Music.   Shelby and Mikey show the purest form of true love.  They both have deep souls that radiate with natural and pure love.  They compliment each other so well, that peaceful silence is all they need.  Two of the most down to earth people I have ever met.  Their energy fuels others!

They picked Key West as their destination wedding.  With my photographic style, I was able to match their visions with the energy and mood of the day.  We gathered together aboard the Schooner America 2.0 for a ceremony at see.  The wind was good, the smiles were plenty, and the energy was amazing.  Shelby really likes candid shots of the group, a memento of the fun energy and life between family and friends.  Staying close together on a sailboat, shuttled to the reception by trolley, and nothing but smiles on everyone’s faces.  When you look for a big party, Shelby and Mikey meant it.  As a photographer in Key West you always want to feel like you are a part of the day.  It helps you feel what they are feeling and it shows in the wedding photography.

Shelby went away from the norm.  Her husky Samba was her maid of honor, who was dressed with a real flower bouquet leash.  There were remembrances of passed family members. They had a unique topper.  Shelby planned, organized, and purchased decorations. She spent a lot of time on  She used recommendations and past experiences to tailor her day the way she wanted!  I think she did a stellar job!


My wedding collections are infused with consistent and creative technique, dynamic portraiture and bold photojournalism. I work with couples who are adventurous, creative and appreciate creative professional photography. They are inspired by and admire the art of visual storytelling. I capture those moments that will be cherished for years on end.
