meet the TEAM

AT DARK LIGHT PORTRAIT STUDIOS, WE TAKE PHOTOGRAPHY VERY SERIOUSLY, BUT WE ALSO LOVE TO HAVE FUN. WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU AND LET YOU GET TO KNOW US. FEEL FREE TO TELL US A SECRET! WE SWEAR WE WON’T TELL…. 😉

We met one fateful day in a class at the Hallmark Institute of Photography. There, we concocted a plan to someday get together and take over the world. Oh, and also start a photography business at some point.

After graduation, we went our separate ways until, in 2014, in the town of Monroe, LA, we started Dark Light Portrait Studios. In 2017, we decided to head to the beach, which brought us to Tampa, FL. Dark Light specializes in tween and senior portrait sessions, which of course includes having a whole lot of fun while taking beautiful portraits and giving you fantastic customer care.

We both enjoy traveling, especially abroad and do so every chance we get. (keep that in mind if you want to do a destination session). Jess also enjoys cooking and reading. Tony’s favorite things are pie, watching horror movies and sleeping.

We would love to bore you with tons of crazy stories and get to know some of yours! Hit us up by email, Facebook or phone and lets hang out!

We love to give back to others whenever we can. One of the ways we do that is to donate photography services to various charities and non-profits in the Tampa Bay area. Another way is to donate photography sessions to silent auctions. If you have an event coming up and you need photography services or an item for your auction, we would love to hear from you. Its very possible that we could work together!!
