Capturing Memories With a Lido Key Photographer


Lido Key is a tiny island packed full of gorgeous beaches. It's the perfect place to stay for vacation. And for those staying in the greater Sarasota area, it's the perfect spot for a day trip at the beach.


It's just as magical as Siesta Key to the south, but with a lot less of the crowds.


But whether you are spending time here on vacation, or you live nearby, it's so important that you capture the memories that you make on the island so that you can keep them forever.

Lido Key Photography Services


I'm Kelsey Jaeger, a local photographer who loves this island just as much as you do.


I'd love to take photos of you and your significant other, your kids, and even your extended family on the soft, white sands of Lido Key as the sun sets behind you. I offer family portraits, engagement shoots, and weddings on Lido Key.


Let's create a keepsake that you'll hold onto and look back on for decades to come.

Planning Your Lido Key Photo Shoot


Lido Key is one of the smaller islands in the area. It's a great place to take photos for families who are staying on the island. And it's also great for those staying elsewhere in Sarasota, as this island is easy to get to, has plenty of public access and parking, and is completely beautiful.


And if you're smart, you'll plan to have dinner in St Armands, at one of the fantastic restaurants there (such as Columbia), after your photoshoot to make it an even more memorable evening.


Because the island is so small, there are really only two spots for photos. We can either head to the main beach area right by St Armands, or we can head to the south of the island to South Lido Key Beach. Down south, there's a lot more greenery which can provide some variation for shots.


If you have any questions about photoshoots or want to book a date, you can click the button below to send me a message. I can't wait to hear from you!

How It Works

We'll keep in touch up until the photoshoot to make sure you are prepared, comfortable, and ready to capture memories.


Meet up (likely on the beach) and start capturing authentic photos. My goal is to let you be yourselves, have fun, and act naturally together. I'll help guide you into moments and poses to encourage beautiful photos.


Family and engagement sessions usually take 2-3 weeks to edit and deliver. Weddings and elopements can take up to 4-6 weeks.
