Sarasota Premier Wedding Photographer: Photojournalism, Details, Formals, Cutting Edge Art, Florida Photographer, Sarasota Photographer: We Make Wedding Photography Fun!

Why I do weddings…

For the last 10 years I have worked with families who value the art of photography and who have planned the creative and sophisticated wedding.The photos that I strive to take are emotional. Each person is unique and the energy that he or she exudes is very distinct to that individual. A group takes on it’s own energy and it is my desire to express that energy in a photograph, so when someone looks at the photograph, they can feel it with their heart, not just see it with their eyes. I am passionate about each wedding I get the privilege of shooting! Treating each and every wedding individually…Photographing weddings is such a joy for me. I have a passion for telling stories with my images. I will photograph your story using an attentive eye to anticipate and feel the moments that become the image. I use my camera as a tool to turn a heartfelt moment into a photograph. I love to be creative, spontaneous, and adventuresome, making it my goal to try new things at each event, as it is those special images that are YOU, and no one else! Read less

Sheila's daughter is a good friend of my step-daughter, that's where we found her. I'm not usually a fan of doing business with friends; however, this was one time I have to eat my words, lol! We made an appointment to view some of the albums and discuss the details. Needless to say, after viewing Sheila's photography, we put down a deposit before leaving her gallery. We left everything up to her! The day of our wedding, Sheila showed up early (and brought a 2nd photographer) to get some shots of us getting ready. We didn't really discuss much of what she was looking for, we just let her go to it! I have to say, it was a lot of fun watching Sheila and her partner go to work. In the end, we had over 1000 photos to look through...and we were amazed at some of the shots they got at our wedding! Very talented, artistic and beautiful shots...they used the natural settings and things around us to get some really cool photos. Now that the wedding is done, we have met with Sheila once again, she is putting together an album for us with all of our favorite shots and even working on a Christmas card for this year!! We are thrilled with our photos and the service, will pass along her name and number every chance I get!

Sheila was incredible! We were so lucky to have her! She was the photographer at both mine and my sister's weddings and we couldn't have asked for better pictures! Sheila is friendly, professional, timely and very talented! Her pictures are stunning! We absolutely recommend her for any event! She not only took amazing photos but she went above and beyond her responsibilities as our photographer and helped us whenever she could. She was fantastic! Our weddings would not have been the same without her and the photos she took were breathtaking. One of our best vendors by far!

I loved working with Sheila. She loves what she does and she went above and beyond for us. During our conversations she was always excited about taking new photos and coming up with new ideas. She scoped out the venue a couple of times to get new ideas and different shots etc. We had quite a large group and she was able to get everybody to focus so she could get some great shots. Her photos are unique and wonderful. She really knows what she is doing and she spends a great deal of time on each one of her jobs. We felt very important to her and would recommend her to anyone. Her prices are very competitive and she makes sure she captures all the important moments without missing a beat. Thank you Sheila!

Sheila is an amazing photographer. Her photographs are absolutely stunning & her personality was fun & she kept us on time for everything that day.
During the ceremony, I barely new she was there. She shoots with purpose. She's not one of those crazy paparazzi-style photographers that distract from your wedding. 7 months later, I have no regrets choosing Sheila & love all my images. I'm incredibly happy with my choice. If I had to do it over again, Sheila would still be my photographer.

ArtZimages and specifically, Shelia, were amazing. Everyone who sees our pictures, and I show them to anyone who will look, tells me they are the most amazing wedding pictures they have ever seen. She was great to work with! She's so enthusiastic, excited about her job, but still calming to a nervous bride.

Our pictures look and feel like us, not a bunch of cheesy poses. We got a million amazing shots WITHOUT the "bossiness" or "show stopping" I have seen in other wedding photographers.

I would recommend ArtZimages to anyone, but get her quick before she becomes a very famous wedding photographer!

Sheila was AMAZING!! Not only was she a great value, but she was friendly, responded very quickly, was open to any changes I made, and she took the MOST gorgeous pictures!! Our friends and family, as were my husband and I, were blown away when they saw her great work. Our wedding was on Anna Maria Island during a busy Friday afternoon in April. There were a ton of people around, but she edited them out and it looks as though we had the beach to ourselves. :)

Thanks so much Sheila!! I HIGHLY recommend her as your wedding photographer.

She has given me and my family the most fresh, modern and artistic photographs I could have even dreamed of.

We had a CD full amazing images only weeks after the wedding -choosing a wedding photographer was one of the most important decisions we had to make and we are so glad we chose Sheila. She was absolutely amazing - extremely professional, reasonable prices and amazing quality. She made the whole experience very easy. We would gladly and happily recommend her.‎ I am so happy we made the right choice and hired Sheila as our wedding photographer!

We decided to go with Sheila for our wedding photography because of what she offered for the price, and we were not dissappointed! The photos turned out beautiful and she had tons of great ideas for the bridal party photos. She captured a lot of moments that I didn't get to see or don't quite remember since the day was so overwhelming! The photos were available for everyone to view within the time promised (10-14 days) and we had the CDs of the images within 3 weeks. One of the things that stands out in my memory is that when we were getting formal photos done before the ceremony I didn't want anyone in the chapel, so she made sure everyone was cleared out and didn't let anyone in until we were done! Only negatives: got lost on the way to the chapel and was a few minutes late and only got one picture of the "first kiss" but it is an outstanding picture!

I couldn't be happier that we choose Sheila to be our photographer! She was fun to work with and did a great job with our wedding photos. Sheila has a great talent for catching those detail shots. I also found that she listens to the client's suggestions and incorporates them into her photography. It was an especially windy on our wedding day and I was really worried that our photos wouldn't turn out well, but I was so excited to see that Sheila worked with the wind and used it to her advantage to get some fantastic shots.
Additionally, she includes the photos on CD as high resolution images as part of the package and she didn't charge an arm and a leg for this like some photographers do.

Sheila traveled from Florida to Montana to photograph our wedding in September 2009. She's a mellow, cool, funny chick who's awesome to work with and made everyone in the wedding party feel at ease in front of the camera. Her photos were artistic and creative -- I loved the detail shots of the bouquets, the rings, the cake and the reception food. She has a great eye for color and composition, and her outdoor shots were amazing. Sheila also was adept at arranging the wedding party for formal photos, which she shot quickly and efficiently, with a beautiful end result. We were DELIGHTED with our wedding pictures and would highly recommend Sheila's services for couples who want a gorgeous reminder of their special day.

I really liked working with Sheila at ArtZImages! She was friendly and made me feel really comfortable, like I could continue to be myself and not worry about posing all the time. The price was great, especially since I got a CD of all my images... so I could later make as many prints as I liked! She even brought an intern to help her shoot my wedding, and that was nice because the young lady was able to take all kinds of crazy different pictures, while Sheila was focusing on the regular line up of wedding photos. I found ALL the shots to be really creative and artistic, and that brought a whole new life to the wedding. I'd recommend ArtZImages to anyone who needs a really talented photographer!
