Josh D. Smith

Owner/Business Development

Building Shed Light Media from the ground up has been one of my happiest achievements. As we grew the company, I saw the need to focus on developing the business so that we can service even more customers. We have a VERY talented team of photographers ready to capture your day in a way you never thought possible.

I love photography, shooting films, developing businesses, soccer, and living life with my beautiful wife, son, and 2 daughters. I love iced hazelnut Americanos from Coffee Bean (YUM!), homemade pizza, and a good action movie! Being able to grow as an artist is the best thing in the world. I LOVE learning new things no matter what the topic. I love photography in general, but most importantly, I love PEOPLE and I think that you will feel that from our entire team.

I hope that you enjoy our work and we get the opportunity to meet soon!


Josh Premako

Lead Photographer

Photography is truly in Josh Premako's blood. The grandson of a longtime New Jersey portrait photographer and studio owner, Josh has spent well over a decade creating images that capture treasured moments and stand the test of time. With a journalism background, he prefers a zero-stress approach that's a mix of capturing candid moments while also creating timeless, emotive portraits. He has also taught photojournalism and photography at the university level. Josh and his wife, Aimee, live in Santa Clarita Valley with their rambunctious 2 1/2-year-old son, Theodore.

“Josh makes his clients feel at ease, and his eye for portraiture is phenomenal. We were thrilled by our wedding photos. He went above and beyond expectations and delivered images that we treasure.”— Beck and Ben
