Meet Your Photographer


I am Tori James & I thank you for considering Soul Art Photography. Based in the Queen City of Charlotte, NC, I am a professional photographer with an instinctive ability to bring out the natural allure of her subjects. Since establishing Soul Art Photography in 2009, my talent & experience have led me to collaborate with a number of professionals, organizations, & periodicals such as the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Black Chamber of Commerce, New Growth Hair MagazineCharlotte's Creative Loafing, and the Mint Museum Uptown. I recognize that your images are a valuable investment & I’d be honored to be the artist entrusted with their creation.

An on-site lifestyle & documentary photographer, I specialize in the visual art of capturing authentic being & in-the-moment experiences. My passion is to create images that tell the genuine story of who you are, to document your cherished moments of life & love so that they can be re-lived again & again. My artistic editing style encourages love & appreciation for your natural appearance by avoiding over-processed image effects & misleading, artificial body alterations. Soul Art is not creating false beauty with a “perfect” picture, Soul Art is capturing raw beauty & the perfect moment.

Photography is both an art & a service, & you deserve a more meaningful experience than the common “shoot-&-burn,” digital-only approach. Your carefully crafted images represent the soulful essence of you & they are meant to be seen on the wall of your home, not just the wall of your Facebook page. So whether it’s documenting a 1st birthday party or a first anniversary, creating a professional headshot or capturing a day with family, I make it my goal to ensure that you come away from your Soul Art session with both an incredible experience & incredible art. 

It would be a pleasure to capture the Soul Art in you.

P.S. - Yes, I travel!
