Rebecca, raised in Massachusetts, and Jason in Georgia, met in 1996 while studying abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland. They fell in love over the course of a few years, and married at the ripe old age of 22. 18yrs have passed, and in addition to still loving each other, they are best friends. Add to the mix an 8yr old daughter Logan, 5yr old son Elijah, and 2yr old daughter Sylas, and you've got the Walker Family, now living in Long Beach, CA.
Both Rebecca & Jason studied to earn their Bachelor of Fine Arts from SCAD University, with Rebecca being awarded for "Outstanding Academic Achievement". As an undergraduate, Rebecca interned with Magnum Photo Agency in New York, and went on to assist Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson in his personal studio. Viewing and working with the historical archives of film & contact sheets from Magnum's legendary collection of documentary photographers had a lasting inspirational effect on Rebecca. Moving to Brooklyn, NY after graduation, both Rebecca & Jason worked at the Photo District News. Jason then spent over 5yrs developing his craft as camera & lighting assistant to prolific photographers such as Annie Liebovitz, Nadav Kandar, Marco Grob, Paola Kudacki and Eric Ogden, to name a few. With subjects ranging from Barack Obama to Gisele Bündchen, and everything in between; let's just say Jason has a few good stories to tell. The experience of working as an understudy to such a diverse set of photographers, shooting for iconic fashion houses, magazines, and brands, proved foundational to how Jason now works as a photographer.
For nearly a decade, Rebecca & Jason were represented in New York by Ira Lippke Studios, now referred to as "the Day". Walker Studios will forever owe a debt of gratitude for the opportunity to work at the highest levels of the wedding industry, but more importantly, Rebecca & Jason are grateful for the unending friendship with Ira, his family, and the other artists at his studio.
With 18yrs of experience, Rebecca & Jason have developed an intuitive sensibility regarding all parts of the wedding day. Capturing big bold moments and subtle nuances, all of which fade in the memory, only to be reborn through the art of photography. Rebecca & Jason flow seamlessly between documentary, beauty, fashion, portraiture, landscape, and detail photography. Asserting themselves as needed, otherwise blending in, often unnoticed. Clients have described Rebecca & Jason as having "a calming presence, and a joie de vivre that helped to make the wedding day peaceful, and unforgettably fun!"
