We want you to be obsessed with your photos.        

Every photo they take is the very best of us.

"The light is perfect, and he gets us to enjoy the moment and each other. It’s like hanging out with our friend who happens to make us look fantastic!”

- Natalie Adams



We’re Brent + Dawn!

The husband-and-wife team here at Angela Clifton Photography. 

He’s the creative genius behind the lens and lighting whisperer. She’s the one who makes sure all the details are handled and you’re treated like a VIP.

Together, we make sure every aspect of your next professional photo experience — from choosing your outfits and location to receiving your perfectly edited photos — is actually FUN (no, seriously!).

We each started dabbling in photography before we even met each other, back when Friends was still on primetime TV and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was the #1 jam. Dawn was studying fine art photography at USF (go Bulls!), while Brent was a photographer in the fashion and retail industry. 
After joining the same online group, we met and instantly “clicked” over our shared love of art, music, and Saturday Night Live. We got married, started a business, and 12 years later, we’ve captured more than 3,000 sessions across the Tampa Bay area. 

Even after all these years we still get the same rush of excitement every time we send a photo gallery link to a client.

Whether you’re looking for engagement photos, maternity or newborn, senior portraits, or family photos to beautify your home after your latest renovation, we can’t wait to capture the true spirit of your unique family.

Our business name, Angela Clifton, is a combination of the names we don't go by. What does that mean? We use Dawn's first name, Angela, and Brent's middle name, Clifton - mystery solved!

Fun fact

The Beatles (ask Brent to do his John Lennon impression when you meet him)

Favorite band

Making music together, painting, going to a concert, and hanging out with our dog Lola (the sweetest dog ever) and cat Gracie (the fiercest and most loving cat this side of the Mississippi)

Our perfect Saturday

The newest cast members on SNL! Or a traveling band playing our songs while seeing the country.

In another life, we’d be...
