I'M KELSEY JAEGER!
AND THIS IS MY HUSBAND, JUSTIN
We're Anna Maria Island wedding photographers who live just a few minutes away from these gorgeous beaches.
We love spending time on this island, especially when we get to take photos of families and couples on their most important days.
And we love knowing that the photos we take are going to stay with you for decades to come, as you relive this day through these images again and again, forever more.
The most important day of your life, celebrated on the most beautiful beach.
Everyone dreams of getting married on the beach. But only the wild ones actually do it.
Getting married on Anna Maria Island most likely means you are tying the knot barefoot, with sandy toes, and the sound of the ocean singing over you as you say I do.
When it comes to wedding photos, it’s very hard to beat a beach as gorgeous as the ones on AMI.
The powdery white sand and the blue-green waters of the Gulf make this location picture-perfect. Literally.
My goal is to capture not just the beauty of the ocean, but the real, raw emotions of your day, perfectly candid, exactly as they unfolded.
These photos will be on your walls forever. And hopefully, they will bring tears of joy long into the future, as they spark emotions and excitement in you each time you see them.

Preserving Your Love Story
As we photograph your wedding, our goal is simple - to capture each and every moment, as naturally as possible, to help you relive these moments again in the future.
This is mostly done through digital photography. But we like to have a little fun and mix in some 35mm film photos, as well.
Not only that, but we offer Super 8 wedding films, too, for a perfectly imperfect movie to capture the most important moments of the day.

Our Photography Style
I'm a natural light photographer that likes to capture photos and moments as they happen, keeping photos as authentic as possible.
Even as the sun starts to set, I prefer to use the natural light that is given to us (which is gorgeous at sunset on Anna Maria).
I don't bring any artificial light, and I don't alter the colors/lighting too dramatically in the editing process. I want these photos to be timeless and natural, which means natural light + minimal editing that preserves the vibe of the actual day.

Weddings + Anna Maria Island = Perfect Photos
Anna Maria Island is one of the best beach wedding destinations in the US. The beaches are made up of white, powdery sand that is oh-so-soft to the touch. Having your ceremony in the sand will feel like a dream come true.
Plus, the beaches of Anna Maria face the west, so if your wedding is in the late afternoon, the sun will start setting and the lighting will be breathtaking as you say your vows and take bride and groom photos afterward.
Wedding Photographer Anna Maria Island
You’re planning a wedding on the beach because you want to have a FUN day with the people that mean the most to you. As your Anna Maria Island wedding photographer, my goal is to ensure that you get to enjoy your day to the fullest, while I document every moment as it happens.
You don’t have to worry about a thing. My goal is to make the day as easy as possible for you and to deliver the most beautiful photos afterward so you can preserve these moments forever.
Sure, we’ll take a few posed shots here and there. And I'll guide you, as unobtrusively as possible, into the best angles depending on the lighting and backdrop. But the photos you’ll look back on the most are the candid ones where you don’t even realize a photographer is around.
Wedding Photography Is the Best Investment
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event. The biggest day of your life. And while you’ll spend months planning the event, it will be here today and gone tomorrow.
The cake, the flowers, and even the seaside venue will pass, but photos remain. Your wedding photos will last and will keep this day alive. And if done properly, they will keep the emotion, the excitement, and the memories alive too.
It’s an investment, a keepsake that you’ll not only keep forever but pass on to future generations. And it doesn’t just capture a moment. But these photos tell a story. They tell YOUR story.
As a wedding photographer, my goal is to connect with you and understand your story, so we can best capture and communicate that story through these photos.

The pavilion is all open air, just steps away from the Gulf of Mexico. And of course, you can hold your ceremony in the sand, with the water behind you as you recite your vows.
The Sunset Deck is located at Beach House Waterfront Restaurant. This is another dream location, with a covered reception area with air-conditioning, perfect for early and late in the season when the temperatures start to climb.
A handful of other locations are available as well, which you can read about here.
