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

I can not speak highly enough for Larson Photography! When my husband and I saw the photos from our wedding it took our breath away, the pictures completely exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were pretty high! They were such a pleasure to work with, they made the time we spent taking pictures so much fun! They are truly wonderful at what they do! There were so many shoots that I wanted that I forgot to tell them about, for example, the traditional shot of the wedding bands on the bouquet, and to my surprise when we looked at the photos, they had taken that shot and many others that I had forgotten to tell them about! I was so thrilled! They are such kind and fun people to work with, I am so thankful we had them as our photographers for our wedding! They truly are the best!

Verlyn & Kathleen Larson are an amazing team to work with. We were looking for a photographer who could do journalistic shots as well as the portraits. We noticed from their portfolio instantly that their photography is dynamic. We were particularly interested in their infrared shots. We were also looking for a photographer who wouldn't play the game of "withholding shots unless prints are purchased". We wanted to hire a photographer, who would shoot for a certain period of time, for a fixed rate, pictures included. We not only appreciated Larson Photography's pricing, but were grateful that they had also guided us through, and organized the photography timeline (for 8 hrs), which was incorporated into the other wedding activities timeline. They were also great at contacting and communicating with the other vendors at the wedding. Great team!

Like many of the other customers of Larson Photography I cannot speak highly enough of them. I searched and searched for a photographer but all of the wedding photos looked the same and I thought "blah." However, when I stumbled upon their photos on their website they had unique ideas and the photos were not all staged. What you see is what you get with this husband and wife team! It was so wonderful to have more than one professional photographer on our day for the price of one. Additionally, they were organized, had a plan, and took charge to ensure that all the important shots were captured. They had great ideas of where to take pictures and how to position each person for the perfect picture. I couldn't have imagined more beautiful pictures from my wedding--and could not be happier!

Picking a wedding photographer is more important that anything else in my opinion. A great photographer can make even the worst of conditions look good. Luckily we had great weather - but when I actually saw the preliminary photos, I was blown away. I can't wait to see the rest.

Verlyn and Cathy Larson were recommended to us through our wedding officiant. We contacted them, and spoke with Verlyn about what we were looking for in a photographer. We had a small beach wedding, and did not need a full wedding photography package. They will do whatever you need....as much or as little as you would like. Plus, you get two photographers for the price of one!! They are both lovely people, friendly, and do beautiful work. We loved all of the photos!! They put together some very unique shots that came out great! All of our friends and family commented on how beautiful all of the photos are. They made a DVD of all of the photos they took, put it in a small, tasteful album with a black & white photo of us on the front and a color photo of us on the inside. Included on the DVD was a letter releasing rights to the photos, so that we could print out whatever photos we wanted to and put together our own album. We were leaving Florida in two days, and Verlyn had everything ready for us to pick up before we left. We were so pleased with our photos, and we highly recommend Larson Photography.

Photography by Larson was no doubt my favorite vendor of my entire wedding. They are not only extremely affordable, they are so easy to work with. When they are taking pictures you forget that they are even there, and conduct what you do normally. They have a way of making photos come alive and they really are amazing. I could not ask for more. I'm so grateful they were my photographers. The second my friends started seeing their photos people were asking me all about Photography by Larson for their future photo needs. I am so impressed and I can't say enough about them. Thank you all so very much, you truly made my day amazing and I will be able to look back at your beautiful work and remember what an incredible day it was.

We can't thank say enough good things about the absolutely gorgeous wedding photos at a great value. Looking thru all of them and listening to the theme song of the Larson Photography website brought tears to my eyes. Verlyn and Kathleen captured every special moment and memory perfectly and we could not be happier with the results. Their personal touch and professionalism made our day so special and preserved those memories in such a beautiful way. We greatly appreciated their patience and tireless efforts to make the most of every minute they spent with us as we enjoyed such a gorgeous sunset on the beach at Siesta Key. Thanks Larson Photography - highly recommended!

Mr & Mrs Larson are the epitome of an amazing vendor!! I contacted them once at 8pm at night and they answered the phone and helped fix my issue! Who else would do that??! The value is amazing! I am SO happy with everything! Our engagement photos were beautiful and so were the wedding pictures. They are patient (we were running WAY late) and then trying to get the family groups together. They work well together as a team! The turn around time is fast!! They even gave me a sneak peek by sending 5 or 6 photos to my email the night of the wedding!!! I recommend Photography by Larson for any occasion!!

Doing all of our destination wedding planning online, we searched dozens and dozens of photographers along the Florida west coast, but of every site we went to, Photography by Larson had the BEST price for the best deal! For 5 hours, we had 2 photographers (Mr. and Mrs. Larson), all the photos edited on a CD with all copyrights, and the Larson's take great pride in using natural lighting to capture the most stunning photos...you will NOT be disappointed! They were so professional, my guests all complemented how friendly they were and how well they blended in. And the pictures they took....beautiful. They captured details that we hadn't even noticed until we were going through their photos! If you are looking for amazing photos for an amazing price, AND you want two photographers for the price of one, look no further. Give them a call or send them an email, they are quick to respond and so helpful!!

They even had them touched up and on CD by the time we returned from our honeymoon! AMAZING! I highly recommend Photography by Larson for your wedding photography! THANK YOU VERLYN & KATHLEEN!!!
