We know the power photography holds.
It's about more than just pictures. It's about what matters most to you. It's about what makes you, YOU. It's about the happy tears that flow down your cheeks when the sweetness of what is most dear to your heart is captured in a beautiful and artistic way that makes you overflow with joy. It's about the healing tears of grief that roll when an image brings back happy memories of what once was.
We know, because we have experienced it.
Meet Becky and Tori, the photographic team of Calico & Chrome Creative! Photography and Horses are two passions we both share because of the stories God has woven into the fabric of our lives. Our goal is to bring beautiful and meaningful photography art to others and let our love flow through our work to capture what is seen and felt with the heart.

With at least 4 years of photography business under her belt and so many years that she can't remember of shooting as a hobbyist, I think it's safe to say that photography is her thing!
Besides photography, she enjoys all things equine, her sweet pack of 3 dogs, her house-chicken Violet, singing at church, or being on a boat somewhere soaking up the sun. #Floridagirl through and through! Her faith in Jesus is always number one and her family runs a close second. Her husband Joseph, and two kiddos Ellie and Colt are the loves of her life. Being a wife and mom is the greatest adventure!
Tori is a local Tallahassee “horse crazy” girl! Photography has been a passion of hers for many years and she recently joined the Calico and Chrome Creative team. She loves kids, baking, and anything to do with horses! She currently rides dressage - both western and classical, but also has a passion for drill team, working equitation, and mounted archery. She loves to caputre the special bond that is formed between a rider and their horse, and memorializing that relationship through her camera lens.
Behind the Name
The name Calico came from Becky's precious best buddy of 20 years who she lost at the ripe old age of 30, in 2019. Becky and Calico Jack (CJ) enjoyed many adventures together over the 20 years they had! She loved photographing him and misses him every day! He was special to everyone that knew him, was the first horse experience for many young people over the years, and her daughter's first horse as well. This particular photo is a big reason why she is so passionate about sharing her photography with others. Had she not had her camera that particular day she would not have ended up with these beautiful memories of CJ and her daughter that now mean so much more to her than they did even then.
The Chrome in C&C is for Becky's other 3 horses. Heidi and Bubbles, her miniature horses, and Dakotah her paint horse. Chrome is a term often used to describe the flashy white markings on paint horses (a horse that has a colorful coat like paint splotches). All 3 are paints and have lots of chrome! They are so much fun and we love them all. They keep life extra fun!
