This week, we are featuring the UNIQUE vendor, Life Long Studios!
Here's a few snippets from Life Long Studios -
“Life is full of events that bring forth emotion and expression. For us, photography is a way to bring back that feeling from that one special moment in time so that you can relive it over and over again.” – Buffy Giordano
"Mike, Buffy & Amy have been documenting weddings since 2003 and have been seen in popular wedding magazines including The Knot, Brides Magazine, Florida Bride, Photographer Magazine, Rangefinder and Tampa Bay Weddings.
We document between 130 to 150 weddings per year, mostly in the Central Florida area — but we love to travel.
It's amazing to us how much fun our jobs are. We are in love with the fact that we get to record the most emotional moments of people’s lives. When a bride looks at herself in the mirror first the time on her wedding day…the overly anxious glances of the bride and groom waiting for the officiate to say those magical words "kiss the bride"…the adoration on a father’s face as he dances with his daughter at the beginning of the reception — those are just a handful of the moments that make us LOVE what we do.
Our passion is visible in our work and rewarded with amazing online reviews from clients, as well as professionals that publish our work. Our personal favorite is when we get those cute little hand written thank you cards. Our enthusiasm for the craft of photography helped evolve the way we run Life Long Studios.
Early on in our career as photographers we realized that there is no way for us to run the business, shoot all the events, edit all the images, take all the phone calls, mail all the discs, network with vendors and still have ANY recognizable form of a life. To ensure that we get to spend at least 80 percent of our time doing what we love — taking photos — we built an incredible team of graphic artists, designers and office staff to make us one of the most efficient companies around.
At Life Long Studios we focus on:
- Creating amazing photos for our clients
- Providing exceptional customer service
- Keeping our rates affordable
As silly as it sounds we want to help capture important memories throughout the lives of our clients.
To do that we have expanded over the years to provide more than simply wedding photography. Life Long Studios is available for events, such as Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, quinceañeros, baptisms and anniversaries. We also offer full portrait studio in New Port Richey. You might say that our studio is our way of capturing the memories that come more gradually...celebrating an upcoming birth with a maternity session, capturing the family as it grows and ages with family portraits and honoring an upcoming graduate with a senior portrait.
Simply put, we can't thank you enough for taking the time to learn a little more about us. If you look at our work and think 'I hope my wedding photos look like that,' please let us know, we would love to make sure that happens too.'"
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but these shots may be worth a million words!
