About Rocket Queen Imaging 

- By Chris Brunson


Rocket Queen Imaging is an upscale, boutique photography company with a full service photographer and stylist who specialize in portrait, boudoir, and vintage-style pinup photography. Based in Saluda, South Carolina, our 3,500 square foot studio is centrally located between, and a short drive from Columbia, Lexington, Greenville, Spartanburg, Augusta, Aiken, and other areas in the midlands of South Carolina. 

 As both the photographer & owner of Rocket Queen I, along with my wife, Rebeca am passionate about the opportunity for people to feel beautiful, look great and let out their inner star/starlet - if only for one day.  

 When I met Rocket Queen's stylist, Liz Yturria by chance a few years ago, it marked the beginning of our collaboration in exploring a more creative approach to portraits - more colorful, off the beaten path and a full experience that goes beyond just taking a picture. We believe that  every person, regardless of gender, age, or body type deserves photographs that make them feel beautiful. It's our goal to foster a high level of comfort, trust, and openness between us and our client, because that is what makes for a great set of images. 

 Creating great images and making people happy is something that we enjoy and take seriously.  If you're looking for a team who will be patient, respectful, and easy to work with, you have come to the right place. We would love to hear from you, and look forward to working with you. 

 At Rocket Queen Imaging, it is not our intention to satisfy our customers or to please our customers. It is our intention to amaze them!
