About Larry and Marianne

About Larry

Larry Benvenuti has been a professional photographer for over fifteen years.  He was born and raised in Milford, Connecticut on the Long Island Sound. Larry became enamored of the natural beauty of the Caribbean during his tour of duty with the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1971.  In addition to being a certified scuba instructor,  he received training in underwater photography during a course taught by world famous underwater photographer Howard Hall.


Larry moved to the Florida Keys in 1978 and has been photographing the tropical landscapes, wildlife, and underwater wonders ever since.  He has photographed over 1000 weddings and special events; his pictures have appeared in a variety of media including newspapers, magazines, commercial catalogs, brochures, and websites.


Besides his wife Marianne, the other love in Larry’s life is the island of Cuba.  Since 1993, Larry has made many humanitarian trips to the island nation.   He has traveled all over Cuba capturing the beauty of the people, the architecture, the countryside, and the surrounding waters in over 20,000 slides plus thousands of digital images.


Larry takes his camera everywhere he goes.  He has countless images of the Florida Keys—from high above to ground level and underwater.  Other stock photos include California, Oregon, and Arizona in the United States and the cities and countryside of northern Italy and the Florida Everglades.


About Marianne


Larry’s able assistant is his wife Marianne.  Marianne was born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan.  Marianne has always had a camera in her hand ever since visiting the Expo 67 in Montreal.  Under Larry’s direction, she has honed her talent.


Photography is not Marianne’s primary occupation.  By day, she is office manager at San Pablo Catholic Church in Marathon.  By night, she makes beaded jewelry or performs marriage ceremonies as a notary.


The two of us


Larry is the boss when it comes to photography.  When the occasion calls for it, Marianne assists Larry in capturing an event or a beautiful scene.  Larry captures the images in prints, slides and digital format.
