We're Kim and Jess.
We think it's important for you to get to know us as people - not just as photographers.
We're a husband and wife photography team living in Charlotte with our two cats, Gwen and Arty. We love the outdoors, trying new things, being active, exploring new cities, and staying busy!
We met in college... "in a kayak" (as Jess likes to say) where we both took a whitewater kayaking course for fun and, within a few months, we were dating. We got engaged on top of a mountain in Colorado while skiing and made this thing official on 03.31.18!
Kim is a converted southerner: originally from New Jersey but now considers the Carolinas to be home. She's into craft coffee drinks, kitten snuggles, and page-turning thriller novels.
Jess is originally from Raleigh and loved growing up in NC. He is passionate about singing (a capella music in particular), cooking, and roller coasters.
How We Got Started
We got our start in wedding photography by complete happenstance when historic flooding threatened the state of South Carolina in October 2015, where we attended a wedding of a good friend. Day of, we learned that the photographer's flight was cancelled, and in a pinch, stepped up to document the day. After this, we realized how much we enjoyed sharing our skills and passion for photography with others and became Party of Two.
What We Love
We love people who aren't afraid to be silly, who are confident in themselves and their relationships, who love laughing, adventure, and trying new things. We also love people who value the artistry of photography and want their moments captured in both a photojournalistic and creative way. If this resonates with you, let's chat about how we can bring your vision to life!
We look forward to meeting you!
