Hi There! We're Kim and Jess.
We're a husband and wife photography team with over 15 years of combined experience behind the camera. We’ve invested countless hours in continual education making sure that we can provide the best experience, the best photos, and the best memories for our couples.
We got our start in wedding photography by complete happenstance when we were attending the wedding of a good friend and historic flooding threatened to derail the whole day, including the arrival of the photographer! Luckily, we had our cameras with us 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. We started photographing weddings before we were even engaged ourselves, so not only do we get the photography side of things, but we get the getting married part of things as well!
We think it's important for you to get to know us as people - not just as photographers.
We met in college... "in a boat" (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 finally made this thing official in 2018! We currently live in Charlotte, NC with our two cats, Gwen and Arty, who are our main source of daily entertainment. We enjoy traveling, the outdoors and being active, checking out new restaurants and breweries, and playing board games!
Jess - Chef extraordinaire, always seeking out something new, sings in the shower, and obsessed with roller coasters.
Kim - crazy cat lady, coffee addict, pro-napper, and loves a good thriller novel.
Gwen - enjoys napping, snuggling, and sometimes chasing lasers. Will also give high fives.
Arty - complete sour-patch kid. Gives the best snuggles, loves being the center of attention, plays fetch.
We love people like ourselves: 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!
Enough already, can we meet your cats?
