I come from a long lineage of photographers, having spent many a childhood afternoon in a darkroom watching developing photographs emerge. I spent the next few decades preserving memorable moments, using my trusty camera.

I now utilize both film and digital medium formats in my portraiture, and enjoy capturing your special moments in life. I have experience photographing for commercial sites and advertising, weddings, sports teams, charitable events, and families.

I provide a comfortable experience in which you can feel free to express your emotions and convey your vision for the desired outcome of the photography session.

I would love to help you create tangible memories, and look forward to working with you!

My introduction into photography started in the 10th grade. As I signed up for intro to photography, I never imaged such a passion would emerge. Soon after, I excitedly borrowed my father's Nikon that he carried throughout his military career.  

As the semester progressed, I found a new respect for the mechanics of photography. Photography can be a very technical art, with the balancing of shutter speeds and aperture, coupled with the film sensitivity.  This is where I found an appreciation for black and white portraiture.

Some things have changed, even with the 'explosion' of digital cameras and editing software. This modern technology has given us the automatic functions that have allowed us to get adequate photos without great effort. To achieve something greater,I believe the art has to be melded with the science. This is where I find myself, in between the two.

"I decided to order a professional photographer as a last minute wedding gift for my mother. Aet Fotografie was amazing...quick to respond and very flexible with very short notice. They didn’t respond with “auto-replies” because each reply referenced something I had mentioned.

They were the nicest professionals I have ever worked with. All our friends and family came to me after and said the same thing. They even stayed past the agreed upon time to catch pictures of a group dance we surprised my mom with.

We were stressed, running late, in a house with 30 other relatives who had flown in, and they were as cool as a cucumber, incredibly patient and more understanding than we deserved. I never once found them without a smile. They even drove away from the house to the venue and returned when they realized one picture had everyone looking one way except one person. They returned and retook it as it was a picture we had specifically requested. That is above and beyond excellence!

The wonderful personalities alone are worth praising to the moon and back but then we were able to preview the pictures a short two days later and they were BEAUTIFUL! The professional group shots, candid photos, getting ready ... all of it were absolutely gorgeous!!!

They even threw in a video of the actual ceremony for a very small additional fee as I did not have a videographer.

I cannot recommend this couple enough. If I lived in Florida, I would use them again for any other photography needs. "

"I loved working with AET Fotografie. I decided to book a photo-shoot for my UF graduation last minute. The moment I submitted the request through Thumbtack the response was immediate. Anne and Eric (AET Fotografie) were fantastic! They arrived and started early and stayed beyond the time I had booked. They were very creative and encouraging and made the entire process fun! Both are such sweethearts! Kind, attentive, with a keen eye for details, they made this experience comfortable. I am not a model, but during the photo-shoot, I felt like one. The results were way beyond my expectations. They expertly captured my graduation in a way that was fun and organic and left me with a plethora of high quality photos that I will cherish for a lifetime! What an incredible value! I highly recommend them."

They're very patient and flexible with the time and location. Also made us comfortable and at ease while shooting our photos. We will recommend them to everyone we know. Thank you for making this experience a special one."
