From Our Clients

Kevin is an amazing photographer that understands the needs of the customer and will go beyond to capture the essence of the moment and people. I highly recommend Kevin as a personal, professional and/or corporate photographer or videographer.

Jacqie McWilliams
CIAA-Commissioner at Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association

Kevin is much more than an exceptional photographer. His photographic curations result from time invested with each client and his unique, creative eye. A master at his craft, the work that he and wife Monique are leading at the Brooklyn Collaborative, in partnership with Jason Wolf, set the stage to honor this historic Charlotte location, and to further expand Kevin’s creative footprint.

Keva Walton
CEO at Mecklenburg County Alcoholic Beverage Central Board

Kevin is the consummate professional. His work is amazing and his professionalism is next level. Any time I’ve launched a business or brand, Kevin is one of the first people that I call to help make it happen. He’s easy to work with and does his best to understand your vision so that his work reflects it. He’s just a top notch professional but even better person.
