I’m Jenny King, the introverted extrovert & this photographer life is the life for me. I’ve completely submersed myself in my business & have been overwhelmed with the joy & happiness it has brought me. I’m a small town, fine art & destination wedding photographer for the classic, chic couple in love, & I am so happy you’re here.
To tell you a bit about myself – I’m the mother who doesn’t sleep enough, the wife who needs more dates with my handsome hubby, dreamer, blogger, fanatic of matte lipstick, collector of antique furniture (my husband says I have a problem), an all things vintage fan & avid lover of tattoos. I have the tendency to invade personal space & would give the shirt of my back if needed. I carry around a cup full of water constantly because it’s my security blanket. I feel naked if my toes aren’t painted & COULD eat chips & salsa every day of my life. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I LOVE this job, being a photographer. I did’t always have this business, my wonderful clients or actually having a job that I WANTED to go to. In fact, just a few short years ago you would of found me wearing a logo branded button up with a pair of ironed, khaki pants, overworked in a stuffy small office. At the time, I thought I was working my dream job & had so many opportunities coming my way but that dream didn’t turn out to be so dreamy! After the birth of our third baby, my husband & I made the decision to leave my desk job & follow my passion & I have not looked back since. I started as a bartender gone corporate turned photographer & I’m obsessed with what I do. I started this business at age 30 with a newborn! (am I crazy?) If you would asked me 10 years ago where I would be today I probably couldn’t of given you an answer. I do know that every successful person begins with two beliefs; the future can be better than the present & that I have the power to make it so.
Since starting my business I’ve received numerous awards simply doing the job I LOVE to do. I’ve received three consecutive awards as the Couple’s Choice through wedding wire, have been featured on the Knot, Wedding Chicks & have won the Best of the Best award for 2020 on the Knot. I have been internationally published shooting destination weddings & have recently been nominated & awarded as the best wedding photographer in Victoria, Texas.
Aside from all those things mentioned above, there are 3 things you should look for when choosing your wedding photographer. 1) Pick someone that you are comfortable around because the day of, you’ll spending more time with your photog than your spouse & I’ll likely see you in your skimpies! 2) Choose someone that loves weddings!!! Your photographer should be an extra bridesmaid & be an expert on pinning boutonnieres! 3) Your day will zoom by. You will blink & it’s gone & your wedding photos are all you have left. There’s so much more than showing up & hitting a button on a camera. Being a wedding photographer isn’t glamorous but seeing others live the love I felt on my wedding day gives me butterflies. It also gives me the “hung-over” feeling on Sundays but it is worth it!
