Meet Key Largo's iconic Nada Khalaf-Jones engagement, wedding and elopement photographer, with video skills that help the memories stay fluid, our drone also brings an elevated angle to all the work we've done since 1999.
Nada Khalaf-Jones Photo Film Drone LLC puts you at the center of the screen. Featured by multiple magazines in the USA, we are published and love that.
Our work has been video and photo all along the way. So we understand the needs of both skills. We offer both to you as a small elopement, it's perfect for that. With gimbals and steady hands capturing your slight smiles, subtle tells and outward expressions is easy.
Our life began as an excited adventure. It has continued that way, and to this day our children seem to be afflicted with it, so I know it's something in our MO.
I believe adventure daily and out of your comfort zone travel is the antidote to many things. I'm happy to say I've travelled a lot. My life changed because I travelled. I met my husband in the Persian Gulf during Gulf War II. I was not ready for that interruption to my single woman traveling life style.
He was a US Naval Aviator and I was the boss of a dive center on the coast off of Korfakan in the United Arab Emirates. And photography was my thing then, just a little more underwater. He wanted me to start a life with him and move my career to the freezing cold waters off of San Diego.
Our work ethic and drive and impossible things are easy attitude comes from global careers in journalism and scuba diving.
Our interpersonal skills like patience and insight come from all the above and my children. Putting them at the center is super important. Whilst loving this work of photographing you and your moment.
Fave hobbies right now are beginner bee-keeping, we have the hive and the bees...building a landscaped yard, a forest, watering systems and good mixes of trees and vegetation. The other hobby is grilling on the Big Green Egg.
Most passionately right now is helping the local wedding vendors, hair and make up, flowers, cakes share beautiful vendor photographs and films on the internet and in print. Across the globe. YAHH we feel we have a universal appeal. So. Test that out. Why don't ya?
I could write a book on not only Nada, but her breathtaking work. I reached out to Nada nearly just a month before our wedding was cancelled due to COVID. We wanted to change our plans at the last minute to an elopement ceremony in Key Largo Florida, coming all the way from NC. We reached out to many photographers and had many conversations with them. From the moment that I spoke with Nada I knew she was the one. We clicked. She is a breath of fresh air. She is professional, patient, and kind. She wanted to make this day happen for us and was very warming to the questions that I had. She did what you will not find a lot of and that is expressing her want to photograph, as in it is not just a chore to her or a job to her, but instead it is what she loves to do and this shows tremendously. She went above and beyond for us and captured the magic perfectly. She exemplifies true hard work and dedication. She gave me what every bride should feel, for one, no pressure she let us do our thing and she simply did her thing. Every bride should look back on there wedding pictures and feel what I feel the best day of my life. She captured that. The talent is unreal. She got our pictures back extremely fast and even made sure to ask if I wanted her to change anything which speaks volumes. And if you think you do not want a video, YOU DO! We chose both videography and photography from Nada and when I say it could be published, it could. Her work is simply amazing and there is nothing else that describes it. We will forever cherish it, and that is what every couple should feel. Choosing Nada was simply one of the best decisions on top of the best day of our lives and we will forever be grateful for her amazing talent.
I’ll just keep this very simple. She was an amazing photographer, but an even more amazing person. Vibrant, creative, funny, and so very personable. She even took pictures of our rings on a pineapple. Blew our freaking minds!!!
Nada is a true professional.
