james and jen
James and Jenny Tarpley met in college while they were studying art. James, an art history buff, and Jen, an accomplished painter, began their lives together teaching for an inner-city art program just north of Atlanta, Ga. They shared a passion for art and for people and loved the opportunity to express this to others. Shortly after their own wedding, they photographed a wedding for friends and discovered a love for this side of photography. Now, 12 years later, this husband and wife team, photograph all over the country from fine art to fashion, weddings to wee-little ones...
Their style is as eclectic as their lives, drawing inspiration from museums to magazines (and from their daughter Emma), they create images that are as emotive as they are beautiful. You will definitely see influences of fashion, photojournalism, and even a little renaissance in their work.
In 2004, James and Jenny started VISIO photography, a boutique wedding and portrait studio located in the mountains of North Carolina. Their work can be found in WeddingStyle by Grace Ormonde, Town & Country, Weddings Unveiled, the Bride's Book, as well as many other regional and national publications.
