Florida Keys Lifestyle and Travel Shoot

This past April, we traveled down south for a week of shooting in the Florida Keys. We spent our time building our new travel and lifestyle portfolio. Despite having shot in most regions in the U.S. this was my first time visiting Southern Florida and The Keys and I was excited to experience the area. My goal was to capture beautiful scenes that showcase the relaxed lifestyle and I wanted to paint those scenes in a vintage Americana style. My vision for the shoot included a dock as a key part of the images. So we searched for the perfect location, and were able to secure an incredible house in The Big Pine Key with one of the longest docks in the Keys. To add to the vintage look, I was also able to make use of the old school glass coke bottles which have seen a revival lately. This was an idea I’ve been trying to incorporate into a lifestyle shoot for a while after visiting some antique stores in the Philadelphia area and seeing these bottles gathering dust in a corner. Apparently Coca-Cola has reintroduced a new version of these bottles into the market so we didn’t have to look too hard for them. I was happy we were able to bring together all the elements into this shoot, the space, the props, and the style and am really pleased with the final images. Below are just a few of my favorites from the shoot.
