Industrial Dusty Blue Downtown St. Pete Wedding | Nova 535

“Wedding pictures were something that I really wanted to come out perfectly. I wanted to find someone who could capture our personalities while still taking beautiful pictures. I was also looking for someone who was professional and reputable and knew how to make us feel comfortable. After spending hours browsing through photographers on Instagram, I finally came across Lifelong Photography. I was immediately drawn to all of their photos. Each post was so different but had the vibe I was looking for. After our first meeting with Buffy, I knew immediately that I wanted her for our wedding. She is so kind and professional. Tim and I are a bit awkward being the center of attention, so I was quite nervous about a whole photoshoot with just us. Buffy was incredible and made us feel comfortable right from the start. She quickly learned our personalities and was able to put us at ease and calm our nerves, especially since we did all of our pictures before the ceremony. When I got the pictures back, I was blown away. They were amazing! Every time I look at our pictures, I love them more and more. Our house is currently covered in wedding pictures! I would hire Lifelong Photography again and cannot recommend them enough.” – Megan and Timothy

They made us feel like royalty.” – Aimee and William

Neutral and Gold South Tampa Wedding | Davis Islands Garden Club

“Lots of energy and fun-spirited to bring out our energy despite the day-of jitters. We, of course, looked at many portfolios, but we were always pulled back to Lifelong Photography Studios because they just seemed to capture so much happiness in all of their photos. Lifelong had phenomenal reviews for all of their photographers, so we knew we could not go wrong with picking them! They brought the energy that our wedding party and guests needed. From the first time we met Jorge at our engagement session, I knew we made the right choice. They captured every moment perfectly, and I still go through our wedding album on a weekly basis just reliving the day! Every guest commented on how great the photographers were and our wedding party loved working with them!” – Lexi and Tucker

Romantic Dusty Rose Tampa Wedding | Avila Golf And Country Club

“Bryan and I both don’t really love being the center of attention, so we knew we would need photographers that could coach us through pictures and the process. We wanted photographers that would keep us calm in those anxious moments but also capture the true emotion that is involved in a wedding, without forcing anything on us. Many of my friends had already used Lifelong Photography Studio and had amazing pictures and experience. They truly were incredible. They were so easy to work with and captured everything and more. They captured our true emotions and feelings, and we had so much fun with them.” – Colleen and Bryan

Green and Pink St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Wedding | Nova 535

“I wanted someone I could connect with and that Tyler felt comfortable with, as he is not the biggest fan of taking photos. I had experience working with Lifelong Photography Studios through my work, but instantly knew they were the ones when I met Gabe. Her personality was exactly what we needed, especially the day of when our getting ready timeframe fell behind. She improvised to get us the shots we needed. We had multiple photo locations including a first look at the hotel and wedding party photos before the ceremony at the Banyan trees in Straub Park. My middle name is Banyan, so those photos were super important to me. Then we jumped out of the bus to take a couple of shots in front of the “You are my Sunshine” mural in downtown on our way to the reception, plus all the incredible photos at NOVA 535. Gabe and her second [photographer] at Lifelong were worth every penny and truly blew us all away with their patience and creativity.” – Nevar and Tyler

Romantic Dusty Rose and Wine Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood

“We were looking for someone who would capture timeless, airy, magical, beautiful photographs of our day, but also had an artistic side and would be willing to take other types of Pinterest-like photos. I first connected with Lifelong Photography Studios at a wedding expo at the Birchwood. After meeting numerous other photographers, I knew pretty early on Lifelong had captured my heart. Their portfolio was right in line with the theme I was going for. I wanted a modern photographer who loved to take beautiful photographs and understood how to capture all the special moments and that is exactly what Buffy excels at. I just knew if we chose Lifelong, we would have beautiful memories we could hang as canvases on our wall for the rest of our lives. Buffy and Lifelong are more than phenomenal! There seriously are not enough words to describe how great they were. They exceeded our expectations and we will use Buffy and her team to photograph everything we can for the rest of our lives!” – Joelle and Abram

Historic Elegance Meets Modern Chic White and Gold South Tampa Wedding | The Orlo

“When Brad and I first started looking for a wedding photographer, we weren’t sure what we wanted. But as soon as we met with Buffy at Lifelong Photography Studio, we knew we had found it. Buffy invited us to a sit-down meeting at her studio in Lutz, and from the moment we walked in the door, we were sold. Lifelong Photography Studio has an impressive portfolio of photos that are bright, airy, and full of detail. From the start, talking with Buffy was like talking with a friend that we had known for years, and she made Brad and I feel so comfortable. Something we loved about Lifelong was the fact that they offered several different photography packages to choose from that made it easy to work within our budget. In addition to wedding photography, Buffy also shoots boudoir. She combined some of my favorite shots from our boudoir shoot into a ‘Little Black Book’ which the photographers helped me surprise Brad with on our wedding day. It was a unique and memorable gift and experience that I am so grateful to Lifelong and Buffy for helping me plan!” – Amanda and Brad

“I wanted someone that we could be comfortable around, so they could capture us being natural together. After meeting Cheryl, we felt so comfortable hiring Lifelong Photography Studios. We really loved the fact that we were able to do a photo session a few months before the wedding to allow us to feel comfortable with posing, but natural at the same time. It allowed us more time to get to know Cheryl and Emily before they captured our big day. They really wowed me with their service. They were professional, friendly, and it felt so natural having them there. They listened to our feedback on the shots we wanted and truly made sure we captured every single moment we didn’t even know we wanted!” – Rickey and Christopher

“Partly why I hired Lifelong Photography Studios because they were on the Marry Me Tampa Bay Preferred Wedding photographers list. I talked to Buffy; her personality was just so awesome. She knew how to capture every little moment. We did our engagement pictures at Disney’s Boardwalk, and we were so comfortable with her despite the awkward poses Trent hated. I could just tell she would be wonderful to work with, and she didn’t disappoint. On our wedding day, she was so great with the timelines, getting the best angles of me, even helping me finish getting ready at the end. I love our pictures so much! Lifelong was with every penny. I loved seeing our pictures and the moments I didn’t get to witness of the boys. I had so many laughs/cries going through the pictures, and I’m glad I have these to cherish forever.” – Jessica and Trenton
