I’m married to by best friend, and we met through a mutual friend - but fell in love over good coffee and mushroom pizza!
My love of puns drive her crazy! You can call it my guilty pleasure.
A little girl named Eleanor calls me “Daddy” and soon she’ll be a big sister to our new baby, Amelia!
We cannot wait to become a family of four in February!
Photography found me early in life, but it wasn’t until 2010 when I really jumped into it with all I had.
BUT, I FINALLY CAVED AND AGREED TO DO IT.
I’d run a cafe/bakery and make all of my pastries from scratch.

The Office and The Great British Baking Show are my go-to Netflix shows!

Amaretto Lattes and worship music are my go-to choices for editing and computer work at the office.

BUT building relationships and investing in others is something that takes not just practice, but intentionality.
Beautiful light, making people look their best and even running a business are all things that can be learned, and somewhat simply repeated.
My goal is that you not only love the images we create together, but that you fall in love with the experience and relationship we cultivate.
I AM a photographer that wants to get to know you. Not just because I like people and making connections, but so that I’m able to authentically capture who you are and what others love about you.
I am NOT a photographer that wants to show up to shoot and meet you for the very first time.
I AM a photographer that wants to be a part of you seeing our finished images together for the first time. (I’m also a photographer that loves to feed people, so milk and chocolate chip cookies are a MUST for our reveals!)
I am NOT a photographer that wants to simply email you a gallery when your photos are finished.
I AM a photographer that strives for relationships and deep connections with people, so that I can better serve and enrich their lives through the memories and moments we capture together.
I am NOT a photographer who just wants pretty photos and happy clients.
I AM a photographer that believes life’s too short to keep from laughing, and that having fun while photographing is the key to authentic photos that will capture who you are, and just how wonderful your life truly is.
I am NOT a photographer who is always serious and wants to spend the entire day working on THE perfect shot. Your day is about you!
My in-home studio is located just outside of Winston-Salem, NC. From freshly roasted coffee to my famous made from scratch chocolate chip cookies, you're going to feel right at home with us!
Whether you have some questions or you're ready to get started (and anything in between), I can't wait to hear from you!
As friends, I'll keep you posted on all things JTP...adventures, events, and more! And because we're pals, I'll never spam you!
I fell in love with my wife (aka: my bff) over a good cup of coffee. I also roast my own beans at home. It’s kind of a big deal!!
