Look no further, Palm Beach Photography is the BEST you'll find!Reviewed on 9/23/2015 Nicole N
If you’re looking for a photographer in the South Florida area, stop your search! Tonya and the team at Palm Beach Photography are the only people you need to contact!! Tonya shot our wedding in Islamorada this year, and from the very first phone call with her, I knew we found the person to capture our special day. Tonya spent time on the front end to get to know us, our style, and what we wanted in our wedding images. From a planning perspective she was well organized (HUGE plus for me since our wedding coordinator from our hotel was inexperienced) and created timelines for everyone in the wedding party and for the reception! She was my most trusted advisor when it came to my wedding day, always giving great feedback on everything from our décor to picture locations; Tonya was very much my lifeline throughout my planning process and I cannot thank her enough for her support!! All of that aside, where Tonya truly shines is in her photography skills. She beautifully captured every moment from our first look to our last dance. She made my husband and I, who are both uncomfortable being the center of attention, completely at ease. Her warm and caring nature coupled with friendly and fun attitude made the hours of photography before the wedding ceremony such a great experience!! She accommodated all of my family’s needs with such grace & charm, from my elderly grandparents to rambunctious nieces, and it all just came so naturally to Tonya; she is truly amazing!! I also have to say her coordinator was AWESOME! She came up with unique ideas to display our rings and incorporate props, plus she kept our bridal party on time; we loved her too! Lastly, Tonya has shot weddings at our venue both prior to our wedding and recently following our wedding, and I think what sets her apart is her ability to capture each couple & each wedding’s unique spirit and style. There were no cookie-cutter images; I can’t find one image of my husband and I that used the same poses, setting, or style as any other wedding she had shot there. It’s truly remarkable! We had a more laid back, simple beach wedding and although she captured all of the little details that we as brides spend hours working on, she really focused on the smiles and laughs of our friends and family. Her attention was on the people who really make the memories, and I LOVED that about her! We were so thankful to have found Tonya; her beautiful work PERFECTLY captured that day and will preserve these amazing memories for the rest of our lives!!
An amazing photographer and an amazing person!Reviewed on 9/07/2015
LOVE LOVE LOVE Tonya and her team!! Not only was she down to earth, sweet, upbeat, creative and easy to work with but she was genuinely excited for us on our special day. Tonya had originally taken our engagement pictures and we were blown away by the quality of her work. I knew instantly from there on, we had to use her for our wedding pictures. I cannot say enough good things about her. Tonya did an amazing job throughout our wedding, capturing every precious moment and getting every single detail. She has such a unique eye for what will look spectacular. Tonya also went to our wedding venue 2 weeks prior to our wedding day to scope out all of the gorgeous spots for our pictures. She really goes above and beyond any regular photographer and she seems like she always strives to surpass our expectations. You will definitely love her work. We certainly did. Thank you so much Tonya for capturing our special day!! Tonya and her team absolutely deserve 5/5 stars, we highly recommend them!
Amazing Photographers!!!Reviewed on 8/13/2015
We had our wedding in Miami South Beach at the Palms Resort and Spa. I found Tonya and the Palm Beach Photography on the knot and since I don't live in Miami (we live in Vancouver Canada) I contacted her about her services. She was so helpful from the start. She skyped with us and went over everything in detail. Her warm and energetic personality really stood out to me and made it an easy decision to hire her as our photographer. We had looked at a couple other photographers but they were way more pricey and didn't seem to have the same passion that Tonya had. Prior to our wedding Tonya went out to our venue and took photos and looked for spots that would be great places to shoot for the day of the wedding. This really was an extra step she took to make everything flow smoothly for our special day. She texted me pictures of the venue which was really exciting as I had never been there before and I got a sneak peak at how beautiful the venue was. She also assured me that the venue was beautiful which put my mind at ease. On the day of the wedding she had an extra photographer with her and they were amazing. I had so many of my guests come up to me after and say how amazing they thought the photographers were. They were awesome and making everything on time and run smoothly. They took photos of my hubby and his groomsmen while the girls got their makeup and hair done and then photos of us once we were all dolled up. They took the time to go around and take photos of all the beautiful details of the wedding which I also really appreciated. I am usually the one holding a camera at any event and I take a lot of photos! ha so I didn't know what we would have and if I would feel like they captured everything. when I got the photos from the wedding I was so pleased. they captured everything! All the emotions from our guests and from my husband and I. They even caught a very special moment I shared with my mother in law and grandma in law. I was so pleased to see that moment captured and couldn't believe that they were there to capture it. They didn't make us pose throughout the wedding which I also really appreciated. They let us enjoy the party and just captured all the beautiful moments naturally which made the pictures amazing. An extra step they did during the party was they got on a latter and took a picture of everyone dancing and cheering. such a cool shot to have. Overall great photographers! My mom cannot stop talking about how amazing all the photos are and how professional they were! Definitely no need to look any further if you are looking to hire a wedding photographer.
Planning a destination wedding can be difficult and you must rely on referrals. Our destination, The Cheeca Lodge in the Floriday Keys, referred to us Palm Beach Photography and we could not have been luckier. Not only are our picutres amazing, but our photographer, Tonya, was wonderful to work with. She spent so much time with us, genuinely cared and made us feel so special. She captured every moment and made our special day more beautiful than I could have imagined!
Tonya and her staff were absolutely amazing!! She was so thorough and professional! She knew how to calm me down and make me feel at ease! I didn’t have to worry about a thing! From the beginning of my wedding and until the end, Tonya captured every special moment!! Her pictures are so beautifully done and you can just look at them and feel like you are back at the moment! When choosing a photographer choose Tonya and her staff!!
Tonya and her team from Palm Beach Photography, Inc. were a delight to work with and captured every detail perfectly. I have photos I will treasure for years to come.
Palm Beach Photography was amazing from the very first day that we contacted them about potentially photographing our wedding. They worked well within our set aside budget for photography and exceeded our expectations with the service and attention they provided. The team was also available by phone or email whenever my husband or I had a question, which was a great stress relief for me as a bride planning her wedding in Florida while living in another state. The best part about working with Palm Beach Photography was how caring they were towards myself and my family on the actual wedding day. They ensured I looked flawless in each shot and even helped me carry my heavy bouquet. One of the things that was special to my husband and I was jumping the broom during our ceremony, and the Palm Beach Photography team made sure to capture this moment. That picture will be able to live in our family for generations to come. Overall, the Palm Beach Photography team was invested in making my husband and I happy from the start and I cannot thank them enough for giving us pictures that will last a lifetime.
Tonya from Palm Beach Photography was absolutely amazing! She met with us and showed us a whole portfolio of ideas for our wedding day. She worked within our financial goals and was very affordable and on our budget. Throughout the planning process Tonya always made herself available via phone and email. She responded immediately to any questions we had. Tonya and her staff coordinated our wedding photography with our wedding style. The photos came out elegant and beautiful. The whole team was hard working, accommodating, upbeat and fun! During my 1:1 bridal photos, Tonya lightened the mood and made me laugh when my nerves started to kick in. They delivered both artistically and a sufficient image, most of our home is decorated with photos from Tonya on our wedding day! They are a piece of art! The spirit of the day was captured in every shot. Tonya was emotionally invested in this most important day our lives!
I met Tonya from Palm Beach Photography almost three years before my wedding, and I believe it was fate. I immediately noticed how her photography and photo albums captured the most important details of a wedding day, which is a very important value to me. Her organization, attention to detail, and flexibility, along with her gorgeous, vivid photography, are some of the reasons I knew Tonya's team was 'the one' to photograph our wedding day. I also included an engagement shoot in my package, and I am so happy I did. My groom is not comfortable in front of the camera, so the engagement shoot was a great way for him to get used to the camera and to meet our photography team. I was in touch with Tonya a full year leading up to my wedding day. I had some very, very, specific themes and ideas in mind, and Tonya was willing to listen and accommodate my requests. I love props, and Palm Beach Photography does too! Since I love props and holidays, Tonya was able to incorporate a Valentine's Day theme into our engagement shoot and a Christmas theme with mistletoe into our bridal party shots on my wedding day. (We were married December 17.) Let me also add that when Tonya incorporates a theme or a prop, it is tasteful and not cheesy! On my wedding day, I was most impressed with how Tonya and her team were very on schedule. You hear nightmares of brides running late, however, Tonya was very involved in my wedding day timeline and she was able to capture every moment on schedule. Being on schedule results in a relaxing and stress-free day for a bride. I loved Tonya's assistant. Tonya was on site on my wedding day with an additional photographer and an assistant. Her assistant was the most organized and efficient person I ever met - again, this is great news for a bride to stay on schedule! Her assistant even surprised with me a Facebook Live video on the Palm Beach Photography Facebook page! Since I did not have a videographer and only invested in photography, this was a nice surprise. On my wedding day, Tonya and her team had to visit three site locations - the hotel, the church, and the reception location. They were able to be a part of all three sites and capture all of the special moments. Thanks to Tonya, I have hundreds of wedding photos my husband and I will cherish forever. We ordered some of the photographs through Tonya's website, and they are amazing quality. The photos you order through her site are absolutely professional. Now we are working on the wedding album that was part of my wedding package. I am so excited with how it is turning out and can't wait to receive the physical album. Now that Tonya and I have worked together for two years now, we can easily collaborate on the album drafts, and Tonya very quickly interpreted my vision for the album, and knew which photos I wanted! Our wedding photos capture so many wonderful emotions and expressions that it just makes me happy looking at all of them. It will be so fun to review the album and photo gallery in future decades and on future anniversaries. Thank you Palm Beach Photography!
One of our best wedding decisions was choosing Palm Beach Photography, Inc. as our photographer! What can I say other than perfection! We had a very small and intimate beach wedding at The Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada Florida. A beautiful venue and the perfect place for a wedding. Originally we were going to do our own photography just to save on cost. Thankfully we decided on hiring a photographer to have them professionally done. We are so happy we did because these photos are PRICELESS! No matter what the cost. We were very impressed with the way Tonya catered to our every need. While keeping the two of us separate until the "First Look" she kept me calm and gave me advise while at the same time keeping my groom in a nice cool air conditioned room to keep him comfortable. Tonya has an amazing eye and captured the moment in every single pose. The great thing is that she welcomes and idea you may have as well and made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. Her fun loving personality just made it easy. Our wedding photos are so beautiful we would love to just show them off to the whole world! We will cherish them FOREVER! We can't thank you enough Palm Beach Photography for making our "Special Day" a "Perfect Day" ~THANK YOU~
I can't say enough wonderful things about them. They were so professional the day of the wedding and they even helped out in situations where they didn't have to. They gave encouraging words and made sure everything went perfectly the day of. Extremely professional, creative, and overall good people. They were worth every penny. Not to mention the pictures came out stunning. Do yourself a favor and go with them.
All of our pictures turned out amazing and they were really able to capture how truly beautiful our venue was!
Having a small intimate wedding and a passion for photography, I was very particular in choosing a photographer for my wedding. When I saw Tonya's portfolio and spoke with her regarding my wishes I was confident she was the right fit. She worked with me to accommodate my budget. Additionally, She prepared an itinerary for the day and was able to capture breathtaking images in a variety of landscapes. Her photos were delivered timely and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Tonya for your photography needs!
Tonya and her crew are FANTASTIC!!! When my husband and I first met with Tonya and Lindsay, they listened to it all - when we first met, how we got back together, what moments we want to capture in our pictures...they are the best! We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our engagement shoot and our wedding day photos!!! Thank you, Tonya & crew!!
My wife and I chose Palm Beach Photography to photograph our wedding and were very happy with our pictures. I'm not very comfortable before the camera and Tonya and her team made the experience very easy and entertaining as well. She was reachable easily when we had questions and made the experience pleasant. We really liked her and her team.
Absolutely loved our photographer! They were amazing to work with and love our gorgeous photos!!
Amazing work! That really describes Palm Beach Photography. I found Tonya on Facebook as a referral. I went to her webpage and immediately liked what I saw. Her use of color is what resonated with me. I met with her and told her my honest budget. She was able to work within my budget and give me two shooters - which was a key element for me. I met a few photographers during my planning and I just felt Tonya was the one. She helped craft the day and put together a timeline for us after a group meeting with the venue. I didn't have to do a thing except give the time lines to my best man and MOH. :) Our family loved her and her staff the day off. None of her team was intrusive - you didn't even know they were there. Our pictures are amazing and I'm glad we went with Palm Beach Photgraphy! I would highly recommend!!!
Palm Beach Photography was simply amazing! I am so happy I chose Tonya for our wedding and other events. The photos turned out beautiful and are something me and my husband can cherish forever. Toyna is amazing sweet and made my wedding day less stressful and captured all the wonderful moments. She covered my bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and wedding so beautifully.
I'm so happy we chose palm beach photography to capture our wedding! They were so easy to work with and really made it very easy. Tonya listened to what we wanted and made it happen so effortlessly! My pictures came out exactly how I wanted and I will be able to look at them so my special day lasts a lifetime!
I used Palm Beach Photography for my engagement photos and wedding photos. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of both events. They took the time to plan a timeline for the day of which we went over before the wedding when we did a walk through of our venue. The team of photographers were great and made the photos fun and easy. I would recommend them to anyone getting married looking for excellent service and beautiful pictures!

Michelle and Kyle's wedding!Reviewed on 1/02/2016 Briana B
Tonya and Lindsay were perfect! From the every beginning they worked with our budget and made sure we got everything we wanted! Once our wedding date got closer we were in constant contact and they made sure to plan everything down to the last detail as well as capture every moment. The day of our wedding I was so anxious and nervous and they made my girls and I feel so comfortable. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for great quality work and a reasonable price. Thanks again, Tonya!! We love love love our photos!!

Our Dream Wedding: Captured PERFECTLYReviewed on 10/31/2015 Lauren R
Weddings, especially destination weddings, can be extremely stressful: getting in town with ALL your luggage, obtaining the wedding license, and then meeting with nearly all of your vendors in the few days that you have leading up to the wedding, while still trying to have intimate, personal moments with each and every guest that traveled all that way for your big day. With that in mind: the vendors you choose are crucial, since they can either help or cause more stress… Tonya is the photographer to choose if you want to have a relaxed, fun day and be able to enjoy every moment! Tonya and her team are fantastic photographers and people. I would highly recommend Palm Beach Photography to anyone getting married. They captured what words cannot describe, made the event timeless, gave great advice from the start, and had such quick turn around time in getting us the pictures. Tonya was very easy to reach at anytime and answered my every question, while calming my every apprehension that I had prior to our big day. We could not have been happier with how easy, laidback and collected she and her team were to work with. I consider myself a pretty creative person, so I was definitely looking for this in a photographer as well. They blew me away with unique, gorgeous photos: from my dress on the pier, our rings positioned perfectly with shells (all props they brought – they were SO on top of things!), our “First NON-Look,” our beach ball exit from the ceremony, my Dad and I’s dance, the Sparkler Send-Off… the list goes on and on. Sparkler photos are difficult; I’ve had many friends who have had a Sparkler Send-Off and were so disappointed with their photos. A lot of this had to do with the time line, and their photographers had them doing the Sparkler Send-Off during the day! I am extremely thankful that Tonya and her team knew exactly what they were doing with the time line, not only for the sparklers, but other photos taken on the beach, which needed an exact time of day for the perfect lighting for the perfect photo. A HUGE shout out is necessary for coordinating all of the time line, minute by minute, for the entire day – it was all taken care of for me. She kept us on schedule 100% of the day! She prompted us for family photos, group photos, friend photos and everything in between so that all of our greatest moments through the day were captured. They even went above and beyond to keep both myself and the Groom cool with fans and refrigerated towels whenever needed - and that was needed constantly in the heat and dress I was wearing! I am forever grateful for them on that day! I appreciate that they were always open to my ideas (rings on the date of the newspaper, a “First NON-Look,” the beach balls). I also appreciate that she would ask us what WE wanted. I felt in control, but in great hands at the same time. And that’s a very good feeling to have in your photographer. Numerous guests at my wedding commented on how my photographers were all over the place, taking pictures of everyone, made the photos fun and were able to catch the happy moments that happened throughout the entire day. I will forever be able to remember how wonderful and precious that day was by just looking through my photos with all the memories captured perfectly. I am so thrilled we chose them, and I absolutely give them the best reference. Thank you, Tonya & Palm Beach Photography, for helping make our wedding day unfortgettable!
Wedding Review Palm Beach PhotographyReviewed on 10/30/2015 Amanda B
Palm Beach Photography is a talented group of professionals who truly love what they do and are the best at it. Tonya Laker, owner, has a special touch to all of her photos. She brings out the brightness, the happiness, and emotions in the couple with her shots. From the very beginning of our first meeting, Tonya was approachable, communicative, and full of joy and life. Every time we called or texted, unless Tonya was on location, she answered any questions and concerns that we had. During our final walkthrough, every minute was accounted for by Palm Beach Photography. They were prepared for all family portraits and made everything run smoothly. Everything about Palm Beach Photography was a mixture of fun, energetic, youthful, and full of joy. Many photographers are more about quality than quantity but Palm Beach Photography is both. Every picture captures the beautiful moments of our wedding; every picture is full of love. Tonya uses color and angles to her advantage and she captures the emotion in all. All in all, Palm Beach Photography were invested in our day; they were there for us from the beginning and we cannot have asked for more from Tonya. Our grandfather was sick in the hospital, in the ICU, a couple weeks after our wedding. Knowing that we were still weeks away from having our photos sent to us due to quantity and all edits, Tonya went out of her way to send us a beautiful picture of us on our wedding day with my wife and her grandparents so that we could deliver this photograph to her grandfather so that he would have a chance to recapture our special day. Thank you for everything Tonya!
