About

 

Our names are SJ & D and we met because of photography.

I (SJ) used to work at a photo studio that our mutual friend would use for his photoshoots in the afternoon. D walked in one day and I thought he looked douchey but D is really nice. He's soft-spoken, kind and has the corniest jokes. I have the corniest puns and I tend to make all the pop-culture references in our relationship while D makes all the intelligent references.

We got close because of the projects I had to do for the studio and sometimes D would just stop by or assist on the project. 

21 Pixels wouldn't be what it is without D. He likes to jokingly call himself the "janitor" but he's more than that to the team. His patience and willingness to help me during sessions are one of the biggest factors as to why we have been successful.

Choosing inspiration over competition is a healthier way to do business.

Our long-term goal for 21 Pixels is to be able to travel to beautiful places taking photographs of couples and families and their stories. 

Our goal everyday is to provide a beautiful experience for our clients and to deliver photos that they will cherish every single time they look at them. We want the photos to reflect them and their stories.

Unified by love and respect for each other creates a strong bond.

D & I share a lot of common interests and we also have our differences that we both enjoy on our own. 

We both love to travel and have dreams of exploring many countries together. We both love to sleep (I mostly love this more than D though because you'll see me napping at anytime of the day). We love cats and we're currently trying to adopt a stray cat. We love to game on our free-time and we both love to eat. 

D, as mentioned above, is very patient and he's very thorough. I can be a bit impulsive with my decisions and I tend to go for it while D would like to think about it and think of the consequences before doing the thing. 

I have a knack for portraits while D is amazing with landscape photography. He's my location scouter and I just think of new poses for our clients.

dreamy, effortless, natural and carefree

It took us years to find our style and even up to now we are still trying to hone it. We are constantly learning new tricks, practicing and evolving as years go by. We pledge to constantly grow as photographers and as humans. 

21 Pixels is more than just clicking the shutter.

We genuinely want to make sure we tell a story with your photos.
