Kim Rix - Ninja Photographer
A warm welcome and congratulations on your engagement.
I'm an award-winning photographer based in London, but I'll go anywhere around the world with my camera if you ask.
My love-affair with photography started way back in 1990 at my brother's wedding in Boston, USA. I took a photo of my recently divorced parents, arms linked, big smiles, walking down the aisle. It was a picture I thought I'd never see. Then, I took a photo, catching the exact moment my mother gave me a cheeky wink, as if to say 'no problem, we're all good'.
Since then, my camera has travelled everywhere with me - that's over eighty countries - because I'm a bit of a travel-addict.
You might be wondering about the 'ninja'. It's a nickname I was given by one of my couples who commented on the photos I had taken from some unexpected angles. I have been known to stand on window ledges and other high places to get the best shots!
I've also been called a 'silent assassin'. "How on earth did you get that shot?" my bride asked. "That's my super-power", I replied.
"You're a dynamo" one bride told me, referring to my nimble ability to work a room capturing everyone at the event.
I have a corporate background but my entrepreneurial spirit was unleashed in 2002 when I started a wedding & event planning business. Naturally, I grew an eye for a picture and now I love photographing people in celebration mode. Kim Rix Photography was born in 2010.
