Hello beautiful people! I'm DeJohn, the face behind the lens. I've been married for 7 years and counting to my college best friend. I'm also a girl dad with a 5 year old (Bella Lee) and a 2 year old (Demi Adriana).
I try not to classify myself in one category in photography because I love many various photographical outlets. I'm always learning new techniques and advancing my education so I can become the best I can be at my craft. It's a true blessing to say I love what I do. The sweat, long hours, and stress is all worth it when you are doing something you truly enjoy.
I was born and raised in Washington D.C. and attended Towson University where I met my wife Bonnie. After college, we purchased our first home and started to build our family. We now have two amazing girls (Bella & Demi).
My love for photography started as a kid when playing with my mom Minolta Maxxum 7000. I had no idea what the dials did but pretty sure all pics came out underexposed and blurry. Gordon Parks photo journalistic style during the civil rights era inspired me. The pure emotion and authenticity of the moments captured where a work of art. I knew I wanted to be able to capture authentic moments and have the ability to tell a story through stills.

WORD ON THE STREET
With two girls at home sleeping in seems like a moment of the past. But a simple nice hot cup of coffee always seems to be the thing to get my day started!
We believe that life's biggest and smallest moments are worth celebrating. You'll always find a bottle of wine in our fridge in the event that the night deserves a bit of celebrating!
New isn't always better. I love searching antique shops and thrift stores finding treasures! You'd be surprised on some amazing finds you will discover.
