“The thing that made me want to pursue photography as a career was that it was always something different and challenging. It always gave me a creative outlet.”

– Aaron Lockwood

Toast on The Town has had the honor to have Aaron Lockwood, CEO and head photographer of Lockwood Studios, as their event photographer. Capturing every special moment during our exciting events, Aaron has helped create Toast’s image and set it’s unique tone through his incredible photos.

“I couldn’t be more pleased to have Aaron a part of our Toast Team to help share our story through his lens. He catches every important detail, and for those that know me… it’s all about the details. He is able to get inside my head and knows exactly what I want for that perfect shot…. Fact, sometimes he even get’s on ladders for us to get that aerial shot we love so much.” – Christal Giardina Founder & CEO Toast on The Town

Growing up with a camera always in hand, Aaron Lockwood has followed his passion for photography by expanding his gifts and talents throughout the Tampa Bay area. Starting off his career extremely young, Aaron interned with a commercial photographer during his high school years. Shortly after high school, Aaron headed to South Africa for a year before starting college. After going back to South Africa after college, Aaron settled down in the lovely Sunshine State, got his vocational degree in Photography, and pursued his photography career in Florida ever since. He quickly acquired 12 years of experience in Tampa (and away), and awarded many accolades at a state and national level.

“I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of working with Aaron over the years with my event planning business CKG & Associates aka CKG Events (tag), where I relied on him to service my client events: weddings, corporate, special events, and now Toast Dinners. I knew when I met him, he was passionate, talented, and the right professional for the job and then I saw his work and it was a done deal!” Fun fact: Aaron shot my own wedding at local gem Oxford Exchange, Tampa.” – Christal Giardina Founder & CEO Toast on The Town

Today Aaron is an extremely successful photographer and running his own photography business, Lockwood Studios. He is happily married to Jennifer Lockwood and has a full household of three beautiful boys, Ethan (13), Ephram (11), and Evan (8). His life outside of photography involves his love for sports and almost anything outdoors, and spending a lot of time fishing and playing golf during a beautiful sunny day.

Aaron has a wide set of skills specializing in wedding photography, portraits, commercial photography, and even fine art photography. Thanks to Lockwood Photography, Toast on The Town has been brought to life through his spectacular images!!
