About this pro

How does your service stand out?

What sets apart from other photographers is our ability to work with with clients that want a variety of options that fit their needs and their pricing. We offer albums, full-color prints, canvases, and more in addition to our photography services. We understand that your day is your special event, so all of our packages include printing and sharing rights, so you can print and share your photos where ever you want, with who ever you want. We also have a very fast turnaround time for you to receive your final photo edits in your private password-protected online gallery.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love photography for so many reasons, the most important reason being that it captures a moment in time to cherish forever. Photographs can be an instant smile on your social media, or a hundred-year-old image of your great-great-great grandmother. It’s your first dance at your wedding, family photos at the beach, your dogs playing with your grandkids. Photos help bring it all together.

    Wonderful photographer! So happy with my photos!
    Liz and her husband blew me out of the water. I had one idea on how my photography would be and she just amazed me. And they are both just such nice people. If you only have one person you can contact for your photography needs make sure you contact Liz she was wonderful and as a person not a fan AT ALL of pictures I cannot stop showing off my wedding pictures! Thank you so much Liz, I love reliving my wedding through your photos.

    Liz is a very talented photographer!
    We had a destination wedding. Liz showed up on time. We also had the pleasure of meeting her husband, who is also a photographer. While Liz took photos of us girls, her husband took a few pictures of the guys and the wedding site. We emailed a list of requested photos. They went through and took them all in order and even added a few along the way that we had left out. She was willing to stay in town for our reception, which was 3 hours later. We were having so much fun that we asked them to stay longer so that they could catch our sparkler exit. Of course, she said yes! She even took photo requests from family members. Liz has a great eye and suggested multiple poses along the way. We are having a very hard time deciding which ones to put in our album because they are ALL so good! When we take our vacation in Florida, we will ask Liz to take our family photos! Thank you, Liz!

    I seriously couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our intimate wedding. Liz went above and beyond from beginning to end. From using inspiration from my Pinterest board that she asked me to send her to helping me with my veil. The pictures came out beautifully. Thank you so much!! :)

    Wow! We are so very pleased. Liz worked with our group of 11 to create the MOST beautiful family pictures. She was professional, but also warm and friendly. She was patient with our silly ones and encouraging with the shy ones. She had great ideas for settings and poses. All of the kids are so very pleased. Can't wait to get these up on the wall.

    Liz took engagement pictures for us and we couldn't have been happier. She was so sweet and accommodating. I was hoping to surprise my fiancé and little girl and she pulled it off like a pro! First of all she worked with me on the time and location and was so patient and understanding as I worked to get my girls there without them figuring out what was going on. Then she totally blended in like just another person taking pictures on the beach until the right time. She really made our day feel special and we couldn't be happier with the photos. I would not hesitate to recommend Liz to anyone needing a photographer. Great job Liz and thank you again for being so awesome!

    Liz photographed my family of four in several outdoor settings (on a pier, in a park, etc.) and did a great job capturing us in natural, happy states. She was generous with her time and I was impressed with the efforts she made to capture different poses and work with all of us. Her fees were reasonable and the pictures were ready in only a few days. She was fun to work with as well, and I would definitely recommend Liz to others.

    Liz is amazing. She did a wonderful job taking headshots of nearly 90 employees in an hour and a half stint, in fact we were able to wrap it up in less than the time allotted. She also took photos of our staff retreat and a retirement party for our former director. Liz is friendly, flexible, efficient, very professional and overall a pleasure to work with.

    We appreciated Liz coming right to us at our resort condo rental in the evening. It made the night start out with ease. She had great ideas for our multigenerational family of 12. We especially love the panoramic of the family holding hands with our reflection on the beach. Liz's prices are spot on and the delivery of a downloadable final product was great since we live out of town. We highly recommend Liz.

  • Stephanie O. Jul 31, 2015
    Liz did an outstanding job with our photos. First off, she was willing to meet us WAY out of her way to shoot in an area we chose. She did a variety of photos- traditional, natural, candid. We loved it! She did shots and backgrounds we chose along with ones that she wanted to try and worked with great speed. We have 2 small children and were able to get more than enough photos by the time our youngest (3months) was done. She edited the photos fast (under 2 weeks) and they are beautiful and affordable! We will definitely book our next family shoot with Liz!
    Liz S. Aug 15, 2015

    Thanks Stephanie! Your family is adorable and I loved working with you guys!

    Liz did family/maternity photos for me. She was so easy to work with and went above and beyond to get some incredible photos for us. I'm so impressed with her workmanship and her turn around time was super quick. It was a lovely experience and I can't wait to have her take my newborn photos!!
    Liz S. Aug 15, 2015

    You are absolutely glowing Nicolette! The three of you were a pleasure to work with! Can't wait for your bundle of joy to arrive!

  • Angel B. Jul 9, 2015
    So of course there is the normal stuff you look at when trying to find a photographer like: do they take good pictures? What do people say about them? How are they priced? Will they be on time? Will they make me comfortable while taking photos? Etc. and Liz met all of these requirements! I had some family photos done for my twins 6 month "birthday" and our nursing celebration. Liz did amazing! She made me feel comfortable from the start and always had a way to get both of my babies to smile. She was very laid back and open to my ideas as well and we just synced perfectly. I would hire her 1000000 times again. LOVE her!
  • Stephanie D. Jul 6, 2015
    Working with Liz is fabulous! She takes great pictures of my family! I'm always so excited to do a shoot with her!
  • Valerie J. Jul 6, 2015
    Liz did a great job taking pictures of my son and I. It was a short family photo promotion that took about 15 minutes and we got 5 fantastic shots. She was very relaxed and made it easier for me to relax and feel more natural for the photos. She was good with my son and I'm very happy with the results. We will definitely book another shoot with her!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The initial contact is made, usually via mail or phone. For weddings we usually have a phone call or in person meeting where we go over the timeline and important shots. Once that is completed we love to start a Pinterest board with clients to review some shot ideas. For brides I will also require what is called a as "shot list". A shot list entails who they want photos of and with during their event, especially during their cocktail hour with formal poses.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We are always learning about new camera equipment and photo techniques in our field, but nothing can replace the genuine experience we have with our clients. Lead Photographer Liz Scavilla formally studied under Professor Ginger Sheridan at Jacksonville University where she received a B.A. We are also fully insured.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
The price we give you is the price for your photography event, your hand-edited final, access to them online in a private and password protected online gallery, and printing rights.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings and family photos are the most common types of jobs we photograph. It's great because we have a variety of social media outlets to share images of their special event on, so everyone wants photos to share with their friends and family online.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look at the photographer's style to make sure you like their work. Look at their portfolio and ask as many questions as you want. A photographer should be personable and responsive in the initial process because you want them to be the same way when photographing your event - whether it's big or small.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Find out what you're getting with your pricing that you're paying, how many hours it includes, and what it includes in terms of printing and sharing rights.
