Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hi! I'm Jamaal and I am the Lead Photographer & CEO of N'oir Vision Media, and our Parent Company, Visuals by J. McKenzie. I run an award winning, established full service photography and Videography studio located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and servicing world-wide, (as far as Iceland :D) With a background in Music and Spoken-Word as well as Documentary and Photojournalism Photography, I have an incredible respect for the art of storytelling and an almost sickening eye for detail and composition. What does that mean for you? It means I approach every project intentionally, having asked and gathered as much information as I can to ensure that not only the event and the atmosphere itself, but your company and/or guests and culture, is reflected in every image I take. Shooting professionally for over 10 years with a portfolio that includes Advertising, Architecture, Award Shows, Business/Corporate Live Events, Parties and Portraits, Product Promotion, Sports, Weddings and Actor/Model portfolios, you can trust that our expertise, quality & customer service is top notch and everything that you will need to make the best decision for your media coverage. I can go on and on about the things I've done and the places I've been in the name of my work, but I think it's better to see what our clients say about us. I think that will seal the deal for you. Find our Testimonials on our profile! I look forward to hearing from you.

Jamaal was an amazing photographer! He was so easy to plan the perfect engagement with. I was so happy to work with him and have him there to capture the look on my now fiancé’s face when she turned around and I was on my knee. Family and friends all said he perfectly captured the emotion and that’s so important with pictures. My fiancé loved his work also and looks forward to hopefully working with him again in the future. Thank you again Jamaal for the perfect engagement on New Years Eve!

Jamaal was amazing!! We held our wedding at the beginning of the virus outbreak, and Jamaal followed through with our plans. We had amazing photos in the city and at our wedding location.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Yes! You can see my pricing breakdown here VisualsbyJm.com/pricing and see the following link for Wedding Pricing: VisualsbyJm.com/investment

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It's always a pleasure meeting new faces especially when they are looking for someone to capture their moments. It's a lot of pressure and I don't take it lightly. When possible, we set up a date and time to meet, call/video chat about for introductions and so we can talk about what service you're looking for and if I'm the guy for the job. I probably am but you never know. I'm no plumber!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a self-taught photographer of 6 years and I've attended countless seminars and classes sponsored by the best photographers and industry leading graphic companies in the world.
