Our names are Verlyn and Kathleen Larson. We are a husband and wife team which means you get 2 photographers included in all our wedding coverages. We have been photographing the Sarasota/Bradenton area since 1986. Verlyn has a BS degree in Photojournalism while Kath works part time in the dental field.

We love photographing weddings and have been averaging about 35-40 weddings per year which gives us some time off to travel and to attend continuing education seminars and conventions such as the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention is Las Vegas.

Our wedding coverages are simply an hourly charge which includes all your edited images on a CD or DVD which comes to you in an album with a small photo inset on the cover. Verlyn spends about twice the amount of time editing your wedding as the time spent at your wedding. Each image is analyzed and corrrected if needed with most receiving skin softening and special effects.

Verlyn will email you 8-10 images of your wedding the VERY NEXT DAY for you to share on Facebook, etc. All your family and friends can see some highlights before your wedding is uploaded to our website for all to see within a week to 10 days later.

Popular coffee style albums are also available with a 12 page/24 side 10x10 album starting at just $595. Please let us know if you have any questions. Read less

Verlyn and Kathleen were top notch for our wedding photography! I chose them as I felt Verlyn was very personable while talking about our wedding and was excited to be part of it! They were also very reasonably priced and flexible with the amount of time they were willing stay (I wanted them to stay longer) - You won't be disappointed! They are a husband and wife team and worked very well together making sure we were perfect in our pictures and stayed on schedule during the wedding. They arrived early to check out the venue and find some great spots for after ceremony shots. It was great having 2 photographers to capture all the special moments - Kathleen stayed with me (the Bride) through the whole wedding and was able to capture all the candid shots. Verlyn was able to shot the guys/Groom getting ready and did a great job taking all the portrait shots after the ceremony. Having 2 photographers is the only way to go so you don't miss anything! The best part was that Verlyn had e-mailed a bunch of photos to us by the time we woke up the next morning. This was the last part of relief we needed - to know that we got great pictures and didn't have to wait weeks to see them! It was also great to share with our family and friends right away and get some nice professional shots on FB :) Great team photographers who won't disappoint you on the biggest day of your life!!!

Verlyn & his wife Kathleen did an amazing job on the photos for my wedding. It was great having two photographers to take more photos of both my husband with his groomsmen and I with my bridesmaids. The photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined. The sunset photos are beautiful that they took of just my husband and I after the ceremony. They also had the photos to us only a couple days after the wedding and we were able to pick them up before we even headed back home from our honeymoon.

They did such an amazing job with my wedding pictures. They were there on time and they did everything we wanted them to. They got our pictures back very quickly too. They send you a website and a flash drive, plus some preview pictures. These guys are great, I highly recommend them!

Verlyn and Kathleen Larson make a great team!

My husband and I are from Cincinnati, Ohio. It was scary trying to choose a photographer that we wouldn't get to meet before the day of our wedding but when I came across Photography by Larson, it just felt right. They were responsive and attentive from the very beginning, putting my mind completely at ease! When we had a phone conversation the week before the wedding Verlyn was calming and very patient listening to my 1,000 questions and ideas!

We are absolutely thrilled with their service and quality of work and would recommend them a thousand times over.
Verlyn and Kathleen are both highly skilled and have an eye for capturing the best angles, lighting and details. All of our wedding photos were beautiful, and the shots they captured of my husband and I on the beach at sunset were breathtaking! They know exactly what they are doing!

Thank you Verlyn and Kathleen for an amazing experience!

We had our wedding on longboat key at sunset, and could not have asked for a better experience. Verlyn did an amazing job and took such beautiful pictures! We were from out of town and leaving on Monday, Verlyn had our pictures edited and on a disc for us less than 48hrs after our wedding. Can't say enough about our experience with him. I would add stars if I could! Perfect pictures, unbeatable pricing, fast service!

We could not be happier with our wedding photos. The beautiful photos we have of those we love are absolutely priceless! Verlyn and Kathleen are incredibly talented and work incredibly well together. They were great at interacting with our guests, directing everyone when needed, and we have beautiful and fun photos to remember the day.

My wife Silke and I had a wonderful experience with this company. We called the day of the wedding to see if they were available to take the pictures a couple hours earlier because my fiances hair was completed early. I left a message and they called back within 15 minutes and Verlyn was very accommodating and agreed to perform the session earlier.

We had a bit of a snafu with the place where the pictures were to be taken where we needed to pay $250 for the session. We had them taken at Selby Gardens. This was NOT the photographers fault. They almost were not going to allow us to take them there but in the end agreed to, to their credit and that was appreciated. It would have been very sad had we not been able to take them because here was my bride in her gown ready for what we knew were to be beautiful pictures.

As we were going through Selby, you knew immediately Verlyn was a professional in his craft in all the technicalities of placement and lighting. On top of that, he was a very pleasant and friendly man to work with.


We had an hour session and Verlyn did not look at his watch until he thought we must have been an hour and it ended up being one hour and 20 minutes and he was still willing to take more for us. It was damn hot though for all of us so we told him we were fine and he had captured many wonderful shots.

For what he did, the cost was incredibly reasonable. I will not post the amount in the feedback because I believe contracts between people should not be made public but you will not be disappointed in what you get for the very reasonable price and overall experience.

I would absolutely recommend this company with their over 30 years experience to ensure your day is captured properly.
