We had the good fortune of connecting with Donte & Robin Cherry and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Donte & Robin, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Initially, my husband was led/drawn to our business by God. Then, it was confirmed by Ryan Coogler; after watching the Black Panther movie. The journey pretty much started from there. Our thought process behind starting our own business was to do what we love to do while building a brand/legacy that we could call our own in a way that shows who we are and what we represent. We also thought about capturing and telling stories visually through a different lens so to speak…a different perspective.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Our company and brand is unique in the sense of our look, creativity, and ability to make everyday things and places grab your attention. We’re proud of the growth and evolution of ourselves and our company. Faith, prayer, consistency, endurance, support from others, and most of all supporting each other has allowed us to make it thus far and will fuel us as we move forward to new levels in our business. We enjoy making people feel comfortable & confident on camera. Our goal is to tell a story that shows who you are & what you love.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
This would definitely be on the itinerary… Max’s Wine Dive for Breakfast/Brunch, Star Cinema Grill for a midday lunch and movie, and The Address for late dinner and fun. These places are also a must … Xperience Fellowship Community Church, The Foodie Barr, Lotus Seafood, The Galleria, Pearland Town Center, City Center, Lucky Strike Bowling on San Jacinto Street Downtown.
