We are an Award Winning Full-Service Photography Studio serving Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte counties on the West Coast of Florida. Centrally located "on the Island" in downtown Venice, we have just celebrated our 20th year in business.

Our Mission is twofold: first, to provide you with the finest photography available and secondly, to accomplish that goal in the most gracious manner possible.

















We specialize in photographing families and their celebrations. Family portraiture includes weddings – with a combination of both traditonal Photojournalistic styles.

Our portrait photography is created by highly respected photographer, Kate Hill-Moore. Kate would tell you that she’s been photographing for approximately a million years, but that might be a slight exaggeration! The truth of the matter is that she has had lots of experience photographing everything from the smallest destination weddings and family portrait sessions to the most elaborate and formal of events. Kate has the perception to analyze both people and situations and therefore the ability to create the very best images for her clients. She can be contemporary, creative, funky, fun and full of energy or, traditional, reserved, classical, or all of the above! She loves to get to know her clients so that she can be sure to understand exactly what is needed in any given situation.

















Working with Kate is office manager, Melisa Whitehead. Melisa, with her delightful personality, and her experience, creativity, and organizational skills is the perfect compliment to be assured that your images are even better than you ever imagined. Melisa is a remarkably skilled album designer and an oh so competent person to follow through on your requests – whether it be an online order or a consultation in the studio. Whatever is appropriate, Melisa and Kate are there to be certain your experience with Island Photographics is completed in the very best way imaginable. Read less

Kate and Melissa were wonderful to work with. It really made the difference to have an experienced photographer. If Kate had not kept everyone moving we would have never gotten all the images we did. Unfortunately things move so quickly on that special day. When it is over you hardly know what hit you.
The quality of our finished wedding album also exceeded our expectations. Melissa is very creative and did a wonderful job putting all the photos together. Again, we are so happy that we chose Island Photographics, Inc.

When I first met Kate, I could tell she is a true professional photographer. She was so friendly and cheerful and was full of knowledge and advice. She (and her assistant) really made me feel relaxed throughout the whole wedding day. I knew I could count on Kate to capture the day for me. She worked well with both families (and that was a lot of people).

Melissa is a phenomenal album designer! She was patient with my indecisiveness and she had wonderful ideas. Everyone I show the album to is very impressed!

I think Kate and Melissa make a great team. They work well together and they both are eager to do the best job they can to please their customers. They take pride in their work.

If you are planning a wedding, birthday, engagement, or even want photographs of your children, Island Photographics, Inc., is the perfect company. Kate has a meticulous innovative eye. I used Island Photographics, Inc. for my engagement and wedding in 2006, Kate and her staff listened to everything I had to say, and understood exactly what I was looking for. I have never, in my life, been more pleased to work with someone. I would say if you live on the West Coast of Florida, there is simply no other option.
