Saint Petersburg FL Headshot Photography :: Shelly & Coral

Saint Petersburg Headshot Photography I recently had the pleasure of creating new headshots for the President and Vice President / founders of Empowered to Change. Empowered to Change Inc. is the vision of Co-Founders Coral Nichols and Michele Snyder. Coral Nichols has worked with pre-trial intervention individuals who are dealing with addiction and have come into the court system as a result of compliance issues. She and Co-Founder Michele “Shelly” Snyder have a passion for women’s issues and began their journey with women in mind, however throughout their journey they have seen that the need for a safe place to work out issues is not limited to women, but men as well who are in need of guidance and a safe secure environment while working toward sobriety. Then there is the additional fallout from addiction to consider, which is homelessness and human trafficking, both have been on the rise exponentially these past years. Addiction is not limited to those who are addicted to d[...]

Newport Rhode Island Engagement Sesssion :: Lexie + Matt

Lexie & Matt will be getting married later this Fall in Sarasota at the Powel Crosley Estate. I recently had the wonderful opportunity to do their engagement session in Newport, Rhode Island and was lucky to get to meet the rest of their family - Cash, their handsome young pup! The City of Newport, RI certainly made for some killer backdrops along with the Castle Hill Inn Lighthouse, which is where Matt asked for Lexie's hand in marriage. It was a beautiful weekend with a high of 72 and low of 58.  If you have not yet been to Newport, I highly recommend it! It's such a cute little town with plenty of good food and things to do.  

Tampa Bay Headshot Photographers :: Northwestern Mutual

Tampa Bay Corporate Headshot Photography I recently had the pleasure of going on-location and doing corporate headshots for Northwestern Mutual in Tampa the other day. We photographed everyone in their main lobby and really dig how they turned out. We did headshots of each individual and then previewed their images so that they could make their selection(s). We also did team photos and a group photo of the employees who are USF Alumni then the Military Veterans. Everyone was so easy going and great to work with and thought I would share a few of their final images.   If you or someone you know are in need of a new business corporate headshot, please do not hesitate to give us a call 727-851-9965 for more information. We also offer special group rates.

Tampa Boudoir Photography :: Ms. L

Tampa Boudoir Photography We are thrilled that Ms. L gave us permission to share some images from her boudoir photography photo shoot! When we first showed Ms. L her images her first words were "OMG!!! I have never seen such amazing photos of myself! OMG! These are all incredible!" She later went on to say: "Jonathan is an AMAZING photographer - professional and detailed! His work is ART! I had breast augmentation surgery less than a year ago to increase my self-confidence. After fully healing, I selected Jonathan to take photos for a gift for my significant other, after being referred over by another client. I was very nervous going into the shoot as I had never had intimate photos taken of myself. Jonathan made the experience comfortable and one to remember! The photos turned out to be BEAUTIFUL and BREATHTAKING pieces of art that I will now have of myself for the rest of my life... Jonathan has earned a life long client as I will be using him to capture the rest of life's important[...]

Saint Petersburg Proposal Photography :: Brad & Morgan

Saint Petersburg, FL Proposal Engagement Photographers I recently had the pleasure of photographing a milestone in Brad & Morgan's lives when Brad got down on one knee and asked for Morgan's hand in marriage. It is always incredibly exciting to be able to document special moments such as these by getting into the right spot at a distance and capturing the "YES!" Below are a few of the images from the proposal and what Brad had to say about his experience working with me. Enjoy! :) "I hired Jonathan at the recommendation of a friend to capture a proposal for me. I'm very glad I did. He was instrumental in picking out a location to have a surprise proposal pulled off in public without the feel of being in public. He met with me a few days before and we went around Downtown St. Pete to a few different locations. We talked about logistics and what I wanted from the evening for my fiancée. He was able to listen to what I had in mind and help show me places where we could make it happe[...]
