About the photographers...

    It all began in 2008. A local Detroit artist named Erickson E. Kloock (aka eDOT) founded The Visual Arts Gallery as a way to showcase his portfolio. After a few successful years in the Detroit Metro area displaying in Art Festivals and Exhibits, eDOT desperately sought to expand his worldly perspective. He wanted to experience all walks of life and explore the different cultures of this great country. With his family in tow, he packed up and left the hustle & bustle of Detroit. First, they moved to the desolate and big sky flat-lands of North Dakota. From there, they relocated again to southwestern Pennsylvania; falling in love with the vibrant and scenic hills that encompass the Pittsburgh area. Around that time, his wife Jennifer Kloock (aka Jeni K) decided to pursue a career in photography. She had always been a photography hobbyist, but now wanted to learn more and commit to capturing moments for people to cherish. She attended the New York Institute of Photography and graduated in early 2016. After vacationing in both Florida and the Caribbean several times, eDOT & Jeni K heard the oceans call and uprooted for one final move. Together they permanently planted their roots in the sandy shores near Cocoa Beach Florida. And "Sandy Roots Photography Studio & Art Gallery" was born. 


    Located in the historic Cocoa Village (just minutes from the beach), traditional photography services can be done in their professional studio or they can bring the studio to you.  They love to travel and offer services from Titusville to Palm Bay & Cocoa Beach to Orlando. So whether you want a private Boudoir shoot or a large generational Family photo session (their house or yours, at the beach, park or the farm) they can accommodate your needs. They specialize in Wedding Photography throughout the Space Coast region (Brevard to Orange County). They offer Destination Wedding Photography across the entire United States and Caribbean. They will travel almost anywhere to capture your special day.


    With influences from across the United States, eDOT and Jeni K created a unique and diverse gallery of artwork to represent their experiences. Their walls showcase the urban grind, the heartland of the country, coastal living and everything in-between. They have obtained a wealth of experience and the Art Gallery showcases their perception of  "american culture". Something for everyone. Stop by during business hours to see their unique art gallery located in south Cocoa Village, Florida. With lots of shopping, dining, drinking, live music and a beautiful waterfront park; Cocoa Village is the perfect place to park and spend the day.
