Our Philosophy

Photography is Poetry

“Photography is a response that has to do with the momentary recognition of things. Suddenly you’re alive. A minute later there was nothing there. I just watched it evaporate. You look one moment and there’s everything, next moment it’s gone. Photography is very philosophical.” Joel Meyerowitz

Joy was amazing to work with- professional with a sense of humor! He was also happy to be dragged on our off road adventure-climbing up hills, ducking between electric fences, battling head high grass and nearly falling off cliffs just to get the perfect shots for our wedding. Love the photos and couldn't imagine a better photographer to help up keep the memories of our special day, thank you!

Absolutely can't fault the service from JK Images. Super friendly, helpful and beautiful work. My three year old son couldn't get enough photos of himself. Would highly recommend JK Images to everyone as the day couldn't have gone any better. Thank you so very much


I used JK Images as my photographer for my wedding. JK Images is amazing! Captured every single moment from start to finish on our special day. He was respectful, patient and captured absolutely everything. The photos turned out amazing, and I would recommend JK Images if you are looking for an amazing photographer that promises quality and a grand price. I will be recommending JK Images to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you again I appreciate your service so much!

I highly recommend JK images, I have had two photoshoots with him and I have been extremely happy with both of the process and the outcome. He is very professional as well as fun and it’s easy to feel relaxed around him. He also has a wealth of knowledge around posing and lighting. I look forward to further shoots.
