Hi, we're Jamal & Lashana

       Newport based wedding photographers and a husband & wife team! We are the parents of two beautiful children and we love Jesus! 

We share many things together including our love for weddings & all things grand & extravagant. Both of us were born in coastal vacation spots so naturally, we LOVE seaside weddings.

We are a black owned, luxury wedding photography business that is dedicated to serving adventurous couples who want to have an exquisite & Joy-filled outdoor wedding. Seaside wedding ceremonies and places with immaculate architecture/ballrooms are our specialty. We pride ourselves in producing real emotion through our photographs while also catching those in-between moments as they unfold. Our business is located in Rhode Island and we serve Newport, Providence & other new England areas. We are very pet-friendly and we adore dogs that take part in their owners big day. Available to travel for national & international weddings.

We have been featured in television on the Rhode Show and published on Boston Magazine as one of New England's top 10 black owned wedding photography businesses! Our work has also been published in other magazines and we feel so blessed to have our work shared outside of our local audience. We're humbled by our 5 star review streak on Google. Satisfied brides and grooms is our specialty and we aim to continue excellent service for years to come!

a tale of two lovers from coastal vacation spots

our background story

Newport is the place where our relationship was birthed. When we made things official, we had no idea that our relationship would turn into a business venture.

People always laugh because we're both from vacation spots (Jamal born in Newport & Lashana born in Cape Cod) and as a married couple it's ironic that we shoot weddings together in these places now.

We both got married at the ages of 19 & 20! Yep we were as some folks would say "babies" at the time. For the record, we actually had an elopement in our first apartment together. As exciting as it was for us, our biggest regret was not having photos from that night. This is why we stress the importance of having photos taken. You'll never know when the time comes and you will wish you had something to show your kids/grandkids

A Look into our

Life

1 / 2

Our family is very important to us. our kids are our world and we have built this business together to not only support them, but to offer them a life we didn't experience growing up.  Family getaways and fun beach trips are our favorite (aside from movie nights with popcorn). They have tons of energy so outings are a must! Hopefully we can include them in the fmaily business some day, if that's what they want of course!

Family time

our Favorite Things

2 / 2

We looooove exploring! We are wanderlusters at heart. Anywhere by the coast is key for us and throw in some good food and you can probably lure us anywhere.  We believe everyone should travel and explore the world. There is too much culture and life experiences waiting to be discovered on a personal level. We are looking forward to traveling more as our kids get older too.

Exploring new places

Traveling & food

 Everyone I spoke to from our wedding had such incredible things to say about Jamal and Lashana and talked about how much energy they have! They make everyone so comfortable in front of the camera and truly make things so easy and joyful. And their work is just incredible!

If you are searching for quality, professionalism and attention to detail, then look no further! Our pictures are STUNNING & BREATH TAKING! They brought tears to mine & my husbands eyes as we viewed the photos of our blessed day, thanks to the creative eyes of Jamal & Lashana!
