Meet Firre Kankonde of The GRACE Pictures Photography in Irving

Today we’d like to introduce you to Firre Kankonde.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started doing photography and playing with adobe creative suite since 2008 back in DR Congo in Africa and as soon as I graduate from a graphic design school, I came to the United State where I started my own photography business.

At first, I used to do general photography and after finding my passion for covering a wedding, I put myself in that direction as wedding photographer

I am a full-time wedding photographer, shooting more than 50 weddings a year and have shot more than 300 weddings spanning the globe, my passion is creating a delicately beautiful image that tells the story of my client’lives, and immortalize the heart of these once in a lifetime occasions.

I take on your photos with a relaxed manner. We will offer guidance when it comes to family and couple pictures after the wedding, but we mainly encourage you to focus on each other, and I capture your real emotion. I want your photos to be real and emotional, and we also have a very good experience giving guidance and poses.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Yes, finding clients was taught as a beginner, I went to low on prices and even doing free services just to build my portfolio.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The GRACE Pictures Photography story. Tell us more about the business.
