Own who you are.
``Its not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not.``
Welcome to our world! We’d love to get to know you, but first, here’s a little bit about us! We are Tim and Lauren Johnson, African American Wedding Photographers, located in the Houston & Dallas-Ft Worth area. We founded Harbor Grace Photography in March of 2015, and it has been one of the greatest decisions we could have ever made for our family. We specialize in vibrant wedding photography and videography. But we live for lifestyle, commercial, and portrait photography as well. It’s ironically funny because photography was not our first love, it was actually Biology (that’s another story for another time), but it’s something we’ve grown to love together. We still wake up sometimes in awe that this is our life…
Very professional photographers! I loved every minute of my photoshoot with Lauren and Tim. They make sure you are comfortable, and give adequate directions. It rained during my shoot, but they still captured amazing moments. Fun filled shoot and the locations were beautiful.
Lauren has such a great eye for the perfect shot! She and Tim were organized and had quick turn around. I would highly recommend and will definitely be using both of them again!
I don't know where to start! We love every single picture you took. Even with being a bit nervous you were able to catch how in love Brian and I are. We can't wait for our big day and for you to capture every moment that we will cherish forever!! 🙂 Thank you for everything!!
I chose Harbor Grace Photography for my engagement and bridal portraits and I have to say that I am beyond amazed with the results! Tim and Lauren were so wonderful to work with. The quality of their work is impeccable and they work together so well. By the end of our session I felt as though I had known them for years. Thank you!
The Dynamic Duo!! This husband and wife team is the bomb!! The quality and professionalism of Harbor Grace is exceptional! My Boudoir session was so much fun and exciting! Lauren is a breath of fresh air and she knows what she's doing! Not to mention, the pictures came out amazing! I can't wait to use Harbor Grace for our wedding pictures and family pictures!!
We absolutely loved this duo! Our wedding was captured so beautifully. I started to tear up as I looked through the images. They returned our photos faster than I thought. I want to get married again just so they can capture more Lol. They exceeded our expectations in every way shape or form. This is my first wedding so I didn't have expectations but for a brief moment I wondered if they'd be all in our faces trying to capture moments. Not the case. They were so discrete. I honestly 100% forgot they were there. I can't wait until we have an event--I'm spoiled. If anyone is looking for professional and quality service Lauren and Tim are the way to go!
Tim and Lauren shot our engagement photos and my fiancé and I couldn't have been more pleased with the results! They made us feel at ease from the beginning and gave us lots of feedback from start to finish. They took the time to scout our location and came up with very creative places to shoot. To top it off, we received digital copies of our photos within a few days. I would highly recommend Harbor Grace Photography & Design and can't wait to work with them again!
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this team. The quality of their work and timeliness with getting the finished product back is far beyond any other videographers and photographers that I've worked on projects with for my business. I will definitely be working with Harbor Grace again in the future and will continue to refer them to others!
The Harbor Grace team is by far the best that I have ever worked with. They captured everything about my special day. It was easy and fun! #husbandandwifeteamrocks
We are a husband and wife team (although we often get mistaken for being brother and sister). We have three beautiful daughters, Londyn, Paris, and Milan, who have been the drive behind everything that we do. Legacy is the most important thing to us. Everything that we build today will provide for them tomorrow. We absolutely love what we do and would not trade any minute of it, for anything.

“Tim is a dreamer! He is very optimistic, he’s a risk taker, and he’s extremely stubborn. He moved from Houston to Dallas for college in 2008, but is originally from Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Our mutual love for science brought us together, and now our mutual love for God, family and photography is what keeps us together. He is truly one of a kind. If he thinks something can be done, he will get it done at any cost. I don’t always like it, but it works for us! His version of organization can make you wonder if he really understands what the word means, however he manages to operate exceptionally in his realm of what he calls ‘organized chaos’. There is never a dull moment when he is in the room, he commands the attention of everyone with a confidence that is hard to find. No one is a stranger, and no challenge is too large for him to take on. He is persistent, he is passionate, and he is creative. I love working with him, and I’ve had the opportunity to experience some really amazing things with him on this journey. He saw something in me that blossomed into this amazing company. He is the driving force behind everything that we do and a pretty dope film-maker might I add. I couldn’t be more happier with him by side. ”

“Lauren…Where do I begin? She is amazing! She grew up in Detroit, Michigan and somehow found her way to Texas. After she graduated high school she relocated to Arlington, Texas for college where she received her Bachelors of Science in Biology in 2013. It was shortly after that I realized that she had an exceptional eye when it came to capturing images, regardless of what tool was put into her hand (she took a whole lot of photos of the kids). I brought forth the idea for her to explore photography several times, and although this had no correlation to what she spent so much time studying, she was surprisingly on board with much persuasion. Her natural ability is what brought you Harbor Grace Photography. She’s very particular, she’s passionate, and she’s focused. Her vision scares me at times but it always seems to work out in our favor! Lauren is our premier photographer. Her vision and her faith is the epitome of Harbor Grace. If you want someone who will engulf themselves into everything that they do, who’s honest, who isn’t afraid to take chances, and who will do what it takes for the perfect shot….then she would be a great fit for you. ”
