Tampa Photographers Destination


To say we’re happy that you found Southern City Photography would be an understatement. We are a small, but mighty business and we love getting to know people all over our community and beyond!

Like any other photography website you can find snippets of information about us and our business on different pages throughout the site, but we wanted to delve a little deeper into our own personal journey so you can truly get to know us a bit better.

For starters the one typing is Veronica, hi!

How we Met!

Seth and I met at the beginning of my senior year of college in 2014. I attended the University of Tampa, and Seth was a graduate of the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!). We initially met on the dating app called OKCupid and in my honest opinion, it was like I had found my perfect match by shopping online haha. Meeting online has given us such an appreciation for all love stories, no matter where they come from and how unique every couples background is. And not going to lie, for a while I would cringe when people would ask us how we met, because I didn’t want to admit that we had met online, but now I’m proud to just blurt it out because without that app we probably never would’ve met, even though we only lived 5 minutes away from each other and frequented the same places.

Our Milestones!

Our relationship evolved pretty quickly from what is considered “the norm”. We went on our first vacation after only a few months of dating, rescued our first pup Remy during my Spring break, we were officially living together once I graduated, we got our second pup Coda later that summer, and we became home owners right after our one year dating anniversary. We were together a little over 2 years before we got engaged and we got married less than a year from then. We’ll be coming up on 5 years together in September 2019 and I wouldn’t change a single thing about our timeline or our story.

Why we’re compatible!

Seth is the Chandler to my Monica (friends reference). I can get pretty caught up in details, organization, and cleanliness and Seth always helps me loosen up a little and remember things that are truly important. Seth is hands down the most thoughtful and caring person I have ever met and he gets along with everybody! I mean, he can meet a stranger in a checkout line and leave them with a smile on their face and usually laughing at a ridiculous joke he has just told them. We share so many important values, but we are by no means the same, I think we naturally bring out the best in each other and that’s why our marriage as well as our business work.

We know that everyone’s lives and the journeys they take are unique and meaningful. And no matter how long our clients have been together we want to help celebrate them with photos they can cherish and share with loved ones for years to come.

We hope that by sharing a little bit more about our relationship and the steps we took to get where we are have helped you get a little insight into the people behind the lens!
