Studio 3P originally broke ground in wonderful Irmo, South Carolina as Carolina Photographics over 20 years ago. Randy Jones and the team were the area's go-to for corporate photography and personal portraits. As technology evolved, so did Carolina Photographics. Randy and his team opened Studio 3P in 2013. Since then,  Studio 3P has expanded twice, relocated to the heart of Irmo, and finally filed  as a LLC in 2016, becoming Studio 3P, LLC. The core team is comprised of two expertly skilled photographers and an extremely talented and creative set/ wardrobe stylist. They also work with extraordinary makeup artists to enhance any clients' natural beauty. Serving families and business from Chapin to Columbia, South Carolina,  book your Studio 3P experience today!

Together, they create art to be cherished for generations.
