About Pharris Photos + Films

Bringing their energy, versatility and personality to everything from photography to business building.

As a husband and wife team, Josh and Kariss  have built a business that is recognized amongst clients, colleagues and students alike.

We do what it takes, every time, to serve our clients well.

Josh and I became an item in 2012, from then on it’s been a whirlwind romance that’s resulted in a life-giving marriage, 3 adorable children, and a continuously growing business.

After Josh and I met in college at Baylor University, we linked my ‘creative’ with his ‘entrepreneur’ and dug deep to build a thriving photography business. It’s not often you find a team headed by a husband and wife, because it’s not easy. But nothing easy is worth having! Our ability to continuously spring over every hurdle, family and faith in tow, is how we know we are able to show up as the best decision for our clients! 

Kariss Farris

We now in turn do all of it unto him to have a kingdom impact and live a legacy for those after us.

I love to catch people off guard by telling them that Pharris Photography and Films began while I was in college pursuing my degree in engineering. Yes, I really did pursue and complete my degree in Mechanical Engineering from Baylor University and ended up working as an Engineer for NASA when I was fresh out of college. 

At this point in my story you might be wondering how did that guy end up running a media production and consulting business? It’s all because of Christ and his faithfulness in both Kariss and I’s life. Through faith and perseverance we’ve been blessed in our business, marriage, and family. The Lord knew what he was doing when he made me with the mind of an Engineer and Kariss with an eye for creativity.
