(You can call me Jay but bonus points and a cookie if you come to a session and can say my name right.)
I`m Jay. To be honest with you, like most husbands I was dragged into this without even knowing what was happening.
She started making me come with her to sessions, slowly started teaching me things and then before i know she is ordering another camera for "back up" and then all of a sudden its proclaimed my camera and next thing I know she is telling everyone we are a husband and wife team haha.
To be honest I`m super blessed that I can provide more then a dope last name to the business, watching my wife have such a thrill capturing moments really pushed me into the idea of maybe I can get the same joy while working with my hot wife.
I`m the unpredictable, inappropriate jokes one. Thats why we have to connect with our couples so we can get to the point where we can really just be free to be ourselves and capture who you really are. A few posed ones for momma and dad back home but the rest? I want you to just be you!
I`m not a huge Tv show crazed fan like my wife but That 70s show, house and almost any popular black tv show from the 90s is my thing.
Im into any and all music and I rap a little as well, so if nay clients want to free style with me during a session? Lets drop a beat and hit it.
Hey! Im Jakayla! Im the dorky, awkward one,most likely to fall while walking backwards to capture your shot girl. I freaking love photography but its not just getting cool pictures for me. Its about getting amazing memories of who y'all are not who we want you to be. Thats why we don't do any acting over here. Im very introverted until you get to know me and then you learn just how eccentric I can be. Im obsessed with survivor(I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS SEASON!), The Bachelor, Grey's Anatomy, Jane the vrigin, The walking dead & Scandal. (Okay I like a LOT of tv shows, its what I watch while I edit my gorgeous clients images <3) Anyways, when It comes to your big day Im there and not just there but really there. Im the go to lady if you need advice on colors,location, make up artist, planner etc? I will give you as much advice as I can! I really hope you are ready to gain some friends if you book with us because we seriously love the crap out of good people and all of The Rivers clients are A1.
This is our mini Rivers! (and our third “J”)
She is 2 years old and is already attached to a mini camera we got her! She has quite a wild spirit and her favorite word is uncle. If you ever meet her sing I like to eat apples and bananas and you will win over her little heart. She is the love of our life and the reason why mommy drinks so much coffee, we always say she’s mommies personality with daddies face!
