Rachel E Ligon
My creativity and entrepreneurial spirit blossomed while pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Photography from Northern Kentucky University. Traveling and studying abroad let me photograph people and their environments in a very natural way. These opportunities, and my years of experience since then, have honed my unique style.
To this day, my work highlights people at their most authentic. Getting to know a couple before the big day is vital to my process as a premier wedding photographer. Observing their dynamic through phone calls and meetings prepares me to take photos that reveal personalities and emotions naturally. I have an eye for capturing those extraordinary moments - intimate, surprising, and joyous - that make each wedding so unforgettable.
Rachel E. Ligon Photography attracts clients seeking more than just generic wedding photos. I like to blend classic approaches with an artistic vision and playful, personalized twists, and colorful Key West is the perfect backdrop. This island is a magical place to begin a marriage, and my goal is to provide equally vibrant, true-to-life, high quality photos to treasure for a lifetime.
When Michael was in high school, his grandfather gave him his first camera, a Kodak Ektra 100 and he began shooting film. It was during this time that the seed was planted for Michael's unique eye for composition. A lifelong soccer player, Michael played goalkeeper in high school and college. As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding. His documentarian style captures these fleeting moments creating images that are authentic and timeless.
Each year, Michael shoots around 50 full-day weddings, including many destination weddings. An avid outdoorsman, Michael enjoys travelling to new places and exploring the beauty of the natural world. He loves all activities on the water including fishing, boating and surfing. Michael is inspired by nature, light, abstract design and the love he witnesses between his couples.
The moment I picked up a camera, I realized it was my super power. It was love at first sight. Now, I create breathtaking, epic wedding images painted gracefully with Gods' light for the style obsessed bride. I cater to brides longing for a modern photography style with an artistic, high fashion approach. My award winning work has been featured in numerous bridal magazines, publications and books and takes me around the globe from the Florida Keys to London England, although you can usually find me barefoot, camera in hand by the ocean.
I'm a professional photographer and founder of Blueye Images in Key West, Florida. I have been to more weddings than most people can say they have ever dreamed of. I started assisting a pro-photog when I was 14 and loved it.
I loved everything from the fashion of the wedding dress, to the style of the décor, the variety of flowers, and the overall magic that one feels as a wedding day unfolds before your very eyes.
I have a BFA in Visual Communications and a BA in Studio Art Photography from the University of Miami. I love art in all mediums and frequently find myself planning my next travel adventure. My professional work is very much inspired by my love of authentic, timeless, beautiful things, soft light, laughter, and raw emotion. I love my job because I'm tasked with telling each couples' unique love story. I get to create little pieces of artwork which serve as a beautiful reminder of people's best days. What could be better than that?? Shoot me an email or give me a ring and let's make some amazing images together!
I'm determined to document the way a wedding feels, not just the way it looks; from ear-splitting grins to eyes glistening with tears, from a ring bearer's tantrum to a crazy-sweaty-screaming dance floor. I believe there's more to a wedding than pretty details and picture-perfect scenes. When documenting a day I seek raw emotions, human connections, and unrepeatable moments, and the resulting images will transport you back to the one day that will fly by faster than you think is possible.
We work seasonally from home studios in Burlington, Vermont (late May-October; no fees within the state of Vermont) and Jupiter, Florida (November-early May; no fees between Fort Lauderdale and Vero Beach). Lots more travel info on our website.
True Love. True moments. True memories...
