The JWP Wedding Experience

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT MATTERS MOST

Life’s greatest moments are best enjoyed when you relive them every day.  As wedding storytellers, we believe that the culmination of our creative artistry is when you feel the same we-just-got-married joy every time you look back on your wedding photos, view them on the walls of your homes, and page through your wedding album with your future kids.

Whether you have a grand and luxurious formal ballroom wedding, or an intimate outdoor gathering, you want a beautiful and unforgettable day, and you also want photos to bring you tears of joy 20 years from  now.  Our timeless style and commitment to authentic imagery means your memories are preserved  exactly the way you first experienced them.

Every couple we work with has an album as their first family heirloom.  Your wedding photos won’t get lost on your computer or live on your phone.  Instead, they will hang on your walls as a constant reminder of the people you love most and one of the most important days of your life.  We wholeheartedly believe that’s the most important  investment you can make – one that goes beyond today, beyond your wedding day, and carries on for years to come.

you adore timeless imagery

Gorgeous timeless imagery takes your breath away. You recognize beautiful light and classic colors, and you know you don't want your wedding photos stuck with Instagram-like filters that will date them.

YOU LOVE EMOTIONAL IMAGERY

Images of moments, no matter how imperfect, are treasured highly. You're not afraid to live in the moment, shed a few tears, or raise a glass and enjoy the party.

YOU WANT A STRESS FREE DAY

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you are MARRIED! Our goal is to make sure you soak it all in, and let the troubles roll off your shoulder.

"These photos mean more to me than they did 7 years ago"

It's been 6 years since Jen photographed our wedding, and I still adore them. Classic, timeliness, and so very meaningful. My father recently passed, and I now realize how important & significant these photos are. The picture of my dad and I on my wedding day - I will never not have that in my house. It will be the one my kids see growing up, long after they've lost memory of papa.
