Weddings are so awesome. The emotions, the details, your friends and family, the opportunity to take hundreds (okay, it’s usually thousands!) of pictures, and of course you two, the lovebirds. It’s all so joyful and exciting!
After your wedding, your pictures and video will be some of the only things you have left to remember that most special day. When you’re thumbing through your pictures and watching your video, you want them to make you smile, cry and relive your wedding day all over again.
At JFP, we aim to produce light-filled, joyful, colorful images and videos that do just that. A love for color, good light and unique details influences the mix of traditional, editorial and documentary styles represented in our couples’ final image collections and videos.
But it’s about more than just the pretty pictures and nice video footage. It’s about the experience, too. From the first time we chat, it will be easy and fun. We’ll talk about what you’re hoping for in your pictures (and video, too…if you’re interested in that) and how we can make that happen. Your engagement session will be more like a date night where we visit one of your favorite places…or while we eat ice cream, take a boat ride or hike through a state forest. (Deep Creek Lake can do all three!) We’ll laugh and talk, and you’ll hear the occasional “Holler!” when we’ve captured something good.
An organized, room-for-wiggle photography timeline will be created for the big day, and if you’re including videography, the same timeline will apply. I’ll photograph the heck out of your details and encourage you to get snuggly for romantic, interactive portraits that will also translate well in video. I’ll also remember every name of every person in your wedding party and I’ll work swiftly through family pictures. I’ll act like two photographers in one and will be on the lookout for the next “moment in between”, especially if it involves grandma! And at the end of the night, we’ll share some smiles and hugs before it’s all over (after eating a piece of cake, of course).
P.S. Deep Creek Lake couples, please let me know if you need help planning. I know the pros and am happy to help! 🙂

When I started the wedding planning process one of the most consistent pieces of advice I received and read was to hire your favorite photographer, not the cheapest or the first one you found. From the first time I saw her site, Jessica was my favorite and I can’t tell you how glad I am I heeded the advice...
