I’m Kenneth Baucum, a Photographer, Videographer & Lifelong Learning Champion in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. When I’m not out capturing memories through photography and video, I can be found saving adults from boring e-learning, or volunteering with a local non-profit search and rescue team finding missing persons.
Featured as one of Tulsa’s best photographers, I provide professional, pain-free, and fun photo sessions for high school seniors, weddings, engagements and elopements, as well as a variety of family portraits and lifestyle sessions. Past and current clients would tell you that I’m one of the most reliable and passionate people you can invite to your project.
Here’s a look at some of my recent work:
A bit more about me…
I’ve been in front of or behind a camera for over 20 years, earning accolades and awards along the way from businesses and individuals alike. No job has yet proven itself too big or too small for me to make an impact.
I travel all over Oklahoma helping couples and families preserve their memories digitally and in print. With every photo package, we offer an online gallery of your images, with simple and friction-free ordering for prints, canvas wall art, and albums.
My style is photojournalistic in nature. Some photographers and customers like light and airy, others like dark and moody – I take the middle ground and focus on preserving the natural detail and emotion just as it happens. I look for not only the moments you ask me to capture, but also the spontaneous surprises and simple pleasures that pop up along the way. It’s as much about the process of helping you be comfortable as much as it is to record the moment we’ve all been waiting for.
What you get when you work with Kenneth Baucum
My process takes the pain out of family and event photography. Many people try to reinvent the wheel when it comes to capturing your memories. This leads to lots of work on YOUR plate and missed moments when it matters most.
That’s why I create custom photography packages that anyone can use to:
- Capture the most important moments
- Tell their story comfortably
- Relax and enjoy a worry-free experience
My career has been filled with many learning and practice opportunities. I’ve made many mistakes, owned them, and learned how to avoid them in the future. Your photo session will benefit from this experience. You can get a cheaper price elsewhere, but the saying is often true, “you get what you pay for.” Your event is unique and special, and we want you to feel confident in the fact that we’ve done it before and can make it happen for you.
I will always work to ensure your ultimate satisfaction, both from starting and finishing your project using industry best practices and my artistic touch, but also by correcting any mistakes, even if it means giving you your money back.
Prints and Albums: Preserving your memories for a lifetime
Photo albums are a timeless way to showcase a collection of photos. This could be from your engagement and wedding, from your senior year at high school, or your first year starting a family! The possibilities are endless. These gorgeous albums are hand-crafted to preserve your memories for a lifetime. Made from the best quality materials, you can choose from a leather, faux leather, linen, or book cloth cover as well as a variety of paper types and embossing options.
Prints are available in virtually any size from 3.5×3.5 up to 24×36, with an option for mounted prints ranging in size from 8×10 to 24×36. Standard photographic Prints have a longevity of 100 years and use Kodak Endura Professional Papers for their Lustre, Glossy, and Metallic prints. For their Deep Matte prints they use Fuji Crystal Archive Professional Paper. Mounted photos are printed on a semi-glossy Lustre paper and mounted on durable, long-lasting backing material, ideal for larger-sized prints.
Looking for canvas wall art? We do that, too! We can help you order canvas prints in sizes ranging from 8×8 to 30×40 inches. Photos are printed on canvas and hand-wrapped around a wooden frame; including sawtooth hangers and a slightly reflective finish. Canvases have a tight and consistent weave that matches the texture associated with a traditional artistic canvas.
Metal wall art is becoming popular, too for it’s longevity. Order your image on high-quality aluminum from 8×8 to 30×40 inches. Metal prints show off colors in a way no other medium can!
Your photography package will also include online access to your digitally edited and professionally finished digital files. These are easy to download and share on social media, or store on a digital picture frame.

Where can you find me?
I shoot photo sessions and weddings all over Oklahoma, including the Tulsa and Oklahoma city metro areas. From pet photos in Jenks, and family photos in Broken Arrow, to wedding photos in Tulsa and more — we’ve got you covered! I’m available for destination events, as well.
A popular option my customers often choose is to take photos in a local park or at one of our area’s many beautiful event venues. When you choose a location, any applicable rental fees or permit fees charged by those locations are built into your price, so you only have to make payment to one person.
What about your prices and packages?
Every project we start is custom-designed to fit your needs and your budget. We don’t believe in operating like a robot, instead, we’d rather treat you like the unique human that you are. Our pricing reflects that.
As a general rule, our wedding packages average around $1550, and our smaller portrait sessions and event photography starts at $250 for an hour. As our partnership grows, we often will build a set fee schedule that makes it super easy for you to hire us again and again for all of life’s occasions, making it easy to know what to expect.
Professional photography is often viewed as an expense — but I want to help you see it as an investment. Because it can sometimes feel expensive, I make it easier for you by offering “pay what you can” deposits on many photo packages, as well as monthly payment plans to spread out the cost. We use contracts to make sure you know what you’re getting from us, and to keep me honest in how I invoice you for payment(s).
