Your photographer, a husband, father, and the most laid-back detail-oriented photographer.

I'm
 King James

Hey,

I started my photography journey in 2016 when I was in college. The first investment I made was purchasing a camera and teaching myself how to use my camera using full manual settings. I started taking graduation images for friends and family. During this time, I found out how much I enjoyed photographing different stages of life. When I delivered galleries, the value I provided to my friends and families, the feedback was great, and it filled my heart with joy. When I look back, I have no images of myself growing up. Unfortunately for me, my childhood home went into flames, and we lost all our photo albums forever. Which is why photography is so important to me, I consider myself to be a visual historian preserving the present for tomorrow.

I am a father to two beautiful boys and married to my best friend. My wife and I have been together for 11 years and have been married for 5 years. As a father and photographer, I personally do 2-3 sessions for my family every year. Along the way, I personally allocate time to do milestone sessions for my boys to be sure I am capturing and preserving the memories of their childhood.

As a team, we have worked tremendously hard to create a seamless client experience for every session from booking, planning, preparation, execution, to delivery. We only access a limited amount of weddings per year to make sure you get the best wedding experience.
Now, every time I walk inside my house, and see my beautiful family’s photos greet me on the wall. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to have worked with many great photographers in preserving my family’s memories. It gives me pride to have the opportunity to do the same for you. Now that you know more about me, tell me more about you. Let’s chat!

My core values

The real you! That’s my primary focus. In the planning stages I like to get to know my clients, this allows our interaction to be candid and intimate. Weddings and portraits are an investment, let's be sure that we can have fun during your event. I want you to be you, capturing you is my goal. With that in mind, I practice minimal posing yet maximum intimate interactions to ensure candidness.

Candidness

1.
NO.

Attention to detail is key to a beautiful gallery. Capturing details from high above ground with my drone to the tiny things with my macro lenses, I will get it all. Not only the gallery but the seamless concierge process is also detail oriented. Booking will provide you with multiple guides and checklists for planning your Wedding.

Detail focused

2.
NO.

It is my goal to keep the pictures as fresh and timeless as possible. I want my clients to look back at their portraits 20 years from now and remember the day as it was, rather than seeing overly edited skies. A natural approach is a key value for this reason, I personally edit each photo to ensure this level of quality is served.
