KPC + Friends
Getting to know clients allows me to provide a positive experience. Here are some of the most popular reasons why my clients and I work well together! Let's find out if we're a match!
We're playful and comfortable being ourselves. Genuine conversations are our favorite kind. We're down-to-earth and maybe a little quirky. Smiles, kindness, laughter and corny jokes are always welcome. We celebrate the little things in life. Authenticity is a big part of our friendship. We're flexible and spontaneous. The outdoors is one of our favorite places to be. We believe that photography services go beyond photos; it's an investment in an experience, and in precious heirlooms that are part of legacies passed on for generations. (Find out more on the About me page.)
Portraits and Weddings
Kim Pham Clark Photography specializes in portraits (families/furbabies, couples/engagements) and weddings.
Portrait photography for families/furbabies or couples or engagements are usually captured within a one hour timeframe, on-location outdoors and moves at a comfortable pace. I work closely with clients in a collaborative effort. When the day arrives, it's a really laid-back, fun time hanging out with friends!
Wedding photography is usually captured within a span of several hours covering a timeline of activities, at one or two location(s) indoors/outdoors and moves at a faster pace. I work closely with clients in a collaborative effort. When the day arrives, it's an exciting occasion with (one more) good and trusted friend by your side!
Creative Vision, Approach, Style
My creative vision is a photojournalistic approach with an artistic spirit to capturing lifestyles:
authentic of the people
sentimental of the moments
heartfelt of the emotions
I strive to capture people living life in the moment, candidly as things occur, spontaneously and organically. Clients know they can:
trust my creative vision, allowing them to be present, relax and have fun.
count on my professionalism and discretion.
feel completely comfortable and free to be themselves.
rely on me to be their friend and supporter every step of the way.
My style is approximately 80-90% photojournalistic while approximately 10-20% is portrait/gently posed. Much of my photography work is done outdoors in natural light, giving a soft, joyous and light feel. For settings with low-lighting and/or indoors, I'll mix photographing with and without artificial lighting.
I care most about preserving photographs to be authentic of the people, sentimental of the moments and heartfelt of the emotions. Photographs are lightly edited, enhanced artistically and provided with a mix of some in color and some in black and white. (Please Note: "Selective coloring" - black and white photos with isolated objects in color - is a style different than mine. Photoshop is not a regular part of my editing process.)
