  • Js Photography
    Though Jeff and Sabrina Williams come from very different backgrounds—Sabrina grew up in urban Rio de Janeiro, and Jeff hails from a rural area of Memphis—they share a mutual love for photography that ignited their personal and professional relationship when they first met in 2000. The award-winning duo developed this passion through eight years of formal education, which led to their MFAs in photography as well as the creation of JS Photography. As the parents of two young boys, Jeff and Sabrina have a particular interest in family, newborn, and maternity photography. Combining the best aspects of fine-art and commercial photography, they strive to capture timeless images that are both classic and contemporary, while avoiding outdated trends such as drawing handlebar mustaches on each subject. Together, they've also immortalized more than 1,250 weddings across their careers and have also enjoyed imparting their talents and knowledge of Photoshop, lighting, and black-and-white film to other aspiring shutterbugs while serving as part-time teachers at the University of Florida.
