We are so excited for your special day. To help, we thought we'd share a couple of key things to think about to get you ready for your wedding. Think of it as an early wedding gift!
Hello, beautiful! I am Latanya, the owner and lead photographer of Latanya & Co. Weddings. I am a wedding photographer who grew up with a love and passion for exploring the world through a camera—I got my first camera when I was ten years old, a Kodak 110 that I took everywhere.
I believe in capturing the story of a moment and enjoy preserving precious moments forever for my clients. My goal is to consistently create beautiful images for my clients that tell their unique love stories.
I live in Tampa, Florida, with my husband, Linwood, and our four rescue puppies, Luna, Lily, Albus, and Ellie. I am a proud mama bear to our daughter, Tatiana, who is a fourth-year veterinary student. I love traveling and embracing new cultures, meeting new people, and capturing everyday beauty around the world.
The Wedding Experience
Interested in becoming a Latanya & Co. couple? Here’s what you can expect throughout the entire process!
Meeting & Planning
Beginning the journey of finding the right photographer tends to be filled with feelings of anxiety and excitement. Will we connect? Are the images going to wow me and my fiancé? As you can guess, meeting me is essential as we will work together through your wedding consultation so we both have a clear vision of your wedding day. If we have a sound connection, then we can begin working together via a simple, easy-to-understand booking agreement.
The start of our journey together is your engagement photos. Finding the right venue, time of year, colors, and learning a bit more about you as a couple will help us to make your personalities shine through in your photos. To prepare for your engagement photos, find outfits that you think reflect your personalities and look good together, and leave the rest to me! After this shoot, we will sit down for a preview where we will review the images taken to find which ones you want to use in your wedding decor, save-the-dates, invitations, website, and more.
Final Planning Meeting
In our final planning meeting, we will review the details of your wedding day including arrival times, desired poses, family photo requirements, potential pre-wedding pictures such as a “first look,” and more. During this meeting, we can discuss any other requests or concerns you may have about your wedding day. If there is a special detail you would like highlighted – we will have it covered. At this point, all you should be focused on is the love and joy you are feeling now that your special day is almost here!
Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day has arrived, and all the arduous work and planning is coming together! I will be around throughout our planned time together capturing the subtle moments that can rush by you during this emotionally charged time. Additionally, I will stay in contact with your primary wedding coordinator, whether that be a wedding planner or venue coordinator, to ensure that my presence enhances the event. My goal is to capture all of the important moments and details of your day and to visually tell your love story.
Delivery of Images
After the wedding, we will meet one more time for what I lovingly call the Premiere of your images as husband and wife. During this time, we will spend the time you need to look through all of your images of your special day and work together to choose your absolute favorites. Your wedding is one of the most important times in your life, and you will spend years looking across your home and being reminded of that beautiful day. To make sure those moments are picture perfect, we will spend time deciding which of these images will go into your final album, thank you books, framed prints, legacy keepsakes, and more.
Client for Life
The wedding experience is only the beginning of my relationship with my clients. In the years following your wedding, I would be honored to continue capturing your important moments. I have captured holiday sessions, maternity, and newborn sessions, family portraits, and more for my past wedding clients. I love staying in touch with my clients and continuing to capture their families!
Where do I start.. The moment I messaged Latanya, I knew I wanted to use her company. I just had a gut feeling she would be perfect for us. The first time meeting Latanya and her husband was for our engagement pictures. They were so helpful and made us feel so comfortable around each other and them. Which in my opinion is the biggest plus was feeling so comfortable with them as if we knew them both for a long time. Latanya was so helpful was not only picture ideas but with other wedding planning too. The day of the wedding came and Latanya and her team came and were ready to work. Latanya and her team were very professional and timely. They all were so patient with all of our flower girls (3 of them) and even took our daughter (2yrs) to entertain her so we could get some good shoots. We left the wedding so excited to see our pictures. Of course, When we got our pictures back, they came out AMAZING. We are so satisfied with Latanya and her team. I truly recommended them
Before we met latanya we were getting pushed by different photographer due to either unprofessionalism or lack of plan for how to make our wedding memorable. First time meeting latanya she was very professional and organized. She brought her portfolio and it was amazing. She was awesome during our photoshoot and she gave us the picture back in two days. We recommend her to anyone that values great art and quality pictures. Cant wait for the wedding pictires. A++++
Latanya and Company were simply amazing before, during and even after our wedding day! Latanya took the time from the very beginning to get to know me and my husband, and learn about every detail we would want captured for this memorable day. Her team was extremely professional and fun to work with during our wedding, making us feel comfortable and at ease. The photos and videos we received after continue to make our family and friends laugh, smile and cry! They did such a fantastic job portraying the love and emotion felt by all on our wedding day! *We loved them so much that we are using them as a preferred vendor for our soon to be wedding venue! So grateful for all they did!
We cannot say enough great things about Latanya and her staff! My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Latanya during our engagement photo session, and she made the experience more fun than either of us could have imagined, especially for 2 people who are not 100% comfortable having their photos taken! She has an incredible eye and the engagement photos she took were unbelievable and exactly what we wanted! Latanya went above and beyond to communicate with us and provide much needed advice. At the wedding, Latanya and her staff did a fantastic job of capturing every moment of our special day. The entire staff was truly professional and captured a great mixture of candid shots and staged shots while remaining behind the scenes. We have been staring at our photos for days and are in love with everything they were able to capture! Latanya and her staff are absolutely amazing and we highly recommend them!
