What inspired you to become a photographer?
I have loved photography since high school. I took a few classes in school and found out that I have a knack for it. I love being able to capture those special moments in a person’s life that they can look back on and reminisce about how they felt at that particular moment. It's just about the sweetest thing you can do for someone.
Who are some of your favorite photographers?
Some local photographers here in Dallas–Fort Worth are amazing. Luckily I have been able to sit down with a couple of them and have their input. It's been amazing!
How would you describe your style or approach to photography?
I only like to shoot when lighting is the best, either early morning or later in the afternoon. I love sun flare but there are some occasions when I like to really let colors stand out in a picture. Especially eyes!
How do you set your subjects at ease?
I just talk. I tell them about myself and ask about them. I like to know who it is I am taking pictures of so I know what type of style they may have or what it is they are looking for in their pictures. If I ask 20 questions, it's because I really want to know what makes them tick.
At JD Douglas Photography, it’s hard to draw the line between documentation and fine art. That's because the company’s photographers don’t only snap shots of subjects in picturesque outdoor settings such as pine forests and rocky beaches; they also hand finish portraits with artistic brushstrokes before bonding them onto canvas. Patrons can choose contemporary frames or ornate traditional frames embellished with gold leaf to display the finished products.

Tell us about your business.
Sassybomb Photography is a home-based business without the overhead of a full-blown studio. We like to capture and emphasize the romance in weddings or the connection between a couple or a family.
What makes your business stand out?
Outside of "the church"—bridal and engagement sessions—a lot of photographers are "natural light only." Unfortunately, natural light doesn't always produce the most desirable result. We take professional-grade studio lighting and light modifiers to almost every shoot. Carrying all of that gear into the field isn't the easiest thing to do, but in our opinion it's worth the effort.
What inspired you to start this business?
When my wife and I got married, we were paying for our own wedding and couldn't afford a professional photographer. As is the norm, we were disappointed in the photos we got back. We had previously run a video-production company and decided that we'd get back into the mix with still photography. Our intent was to offer a high-quality product without the high pricing.
What is your most popular offering?
Our all-inclusive wedding packages that include either a 10"x10" or 12"x12" flush mount leather-bound albums. Our large prints on Canvas or Metal are also very popular.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Tears. When a bride looks at their photos and cries again as they relive their day it gives us a great feeling of satisfaction.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The ceremony itself. It is great being an important part of such a meaningful day. The appreciation from the family as they observe you working hard to preserve their memories.
