3. Wade Bishop Photography

Wade Bishop Photography

Naples, FL native, Wade Bishop, bought his first camera from a garage sale when he was a teenager and was instantly hooked. He quickly learned that his love for the visual medium spread into film and video and led him to earn his Associated Degree with a concentration in film and photography in Tallahassee. After college, the Hollywood hills lured him to the west coast where he worked in film and the special effects prop making industry. Wade eventually came back to Tallahassee and worked in news, television production, independent and student films, and photography.

In the last 20 years, he has worked on just about any title on a production; whether it be a wedding photographer to Hollywood movies and just about everything in between. Simply saying he’s well rounded would be an understatement. Wade loves working in the moving picture world and finds that photography sometimes can be more challenging. “For film, you can move the camera to allow more freedom of story telling. In photography, you’re challenged to tell the story in a single image. I like that challenge.”

STR Photography was later established in 2017 and the rest is history.

STR primarily focuses on engagement, wedding, and family shoots, but also capture some maternity and newborn shots as well. They have self coined their style as “vivid storytelling” because they focus on bright, creative, expression-filled images. Kimberly and Lee love what they do and have a passion for becoming a part of their clients memories forever and to help them tell their stories on print. They consider themselves blessed to photograph some of the sweetest, most vibrant couples, families and individuals and find no coincidence that some of their clients have truly become like family.
