Based in Tampa serving all of Central Florida + beyond!
Hey! I'm Jarixa, a full time wedding + portrait photographer! I am a Jersey girl at heart, but began calling Florida my home in June 2021.
Some fun facts about me...
I am 300% a morning person Recently gave up coffee Broccoli is my chosen veggie of choice I smile waaaaay too much Annnnnnd always have a podcast playing
love chicken fingers + French fries + a good Moscow mule. I'm a cat mom, a wife + an introvert. I spent 10 years as a medical receptionist, was a legal assistant + recently started my own podcast. I love cheese. I love the smell of library books + love the sound of ocean waves.
These aren't just photos. These are stories. Your stories.
I am a natural light wedding photographer, which means I use solely the natural light outside or inside a building. I know what types of light situations are best, + I know how to combat the ones that are out of our control. I think natural light brings out the creamy tones to skin, makes your eyes sparkle, + makes for a timeless photo.
Back to your love story. This is about how hard you both love, how hard you both laugh and those happy tears shed in the middle. My approach is natural. I don't force moments, but I do know when to help direct. I want you to feel comfortable enough to come as you are + let me capture the true essence of "you", because that is what matters the most.
Since I am a natural light photographer, I edit with warm tones in mind, and what you see on this site is my continued style. While I love those Pinterest photos, I love clients to keep an open mind about their photos + not to compare themselves. Not one photo will ever been the same between clients, so don't worry about photo shopping through websites - strive to bring you and your story + let me capture that.
DO YOU OFFER SHOOTS OUTSIDE OF ENGAGEMENTS & WEDDINGS?
Sure do! I love family, maternity, personal portraits, boudoir + so much more. There is SO MUCH CREATIVITY in today's world, tell me your vision + we can make it happen!
HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
All images are sent in an online gallery. You can download your images from there, share the gallery with anyone + also order high quality prints through the website.
WILL I GET THE PRINT RIGHTS TO THE PHOTOS?
Yes. All sessions + weddings include the full resolution digital images with print permission.
DO YOU DO ANY RETOUCHING TO OUR IMAGES? I work by the 2 week rule. If something on your body isn’t going to be on your body two weeks from now, I remove it! This includes acne, scars, and hickeys (yup I said it, we’re all human)
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET? For weddings, my contract states you will receive at least 50 photos per hour. For portraits sessions, the lowest amount of photos I deliver is 20.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME? 90 days MAX!
I seriously don’t funk around about this. If I take longer than 90 days, you’ll get a free pizza + date night on me. I make sure that you get your edited gallery back within 90 days of our time together.
