With every wedding that I’m a part of, certain things stick out in my mind. Sometimes it’s the food, the way the groom reacted when he saw his bride, the insane moves seen on a dance floor or even being totally surprised by interpretive dancers coming down the aisle when I was prepared for the […]

For me, photography is much more than a “means to an end,” or a job to be finished. Instead, it’s an experience that I’m convinced should be felt and enjoyed. Anytime I’m talking with perspective couples I always spend far more time emphasizing the passion I have for the people I’m working with – because I feel […]

Y’all – 2017 was seriously the best! I was able to work with the coolest couples and capture some of my favorite work to date. I love to look back on each year that I’ve photographed, because it lets me see how my style has evolved and how my work has grown with each passing […]

These two are simply the best. They met over 8 years ago (yes, EIGHT!) and have been in love pretty much ever since. I was fortunate enough to spend most of my weekend with William and Kate at their rehearsal dinner and then on their wedding day, so I’ve become quite familiar with their love […]

Ashley and Carlos are getting married this fall at a brand new venue for me (Wistella Farm) and I’m so flipping excited to shoot there! (New venues are always a favorite) So it’s only fitting that Ashley wanted to shoot her engagements somewhere new for me too – the West End of Winston Salem. I’ve […]

I’m not convinced that rain on a wedding day is such a bad thing… This weekend Zack and Becky were planning a beautiful, intimate ceremony outside their church, but the weather had other plans. It was not only rainy, but actually a little chilly too – so the ceremony was moved inside to the lobby. […]

This weekend was a special one… One of my close friends, Lauren, married her best friend, Shane! Lauren and I met about ten years ago (I seriously can’t believe it’s been that long) in college, and we’ve been good friends ever since. She was a tremendous help at my wedding with SOO many things (even […]

Happy Tuesday y’all! Today on the JTP blog we’re doing something brand new and featuring a guest on the blog – Lindsey with Face Forward! I ran across this article from Lindsey about a week ago and thought it was very helpful for anyone in the process of wedding planning and “show attending.” If you’ve […]

Today was an incredible day… Not only did I spend the day with one of our amazing couples, but I was able to photograph them at the most beautiful locations in this beautiful state I call home. The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek is truly one of the most unique and stunning places I’ve ever experienced. […]

I’m not entirely sure that it’s even fair to be able to photograph a couple this perfect at a location this incredibly beautiful! Seriously – after seeing these photos I promise you’re going to want to move to a big open field with old crooked oak trees and winding dirt roads!  So a little about […]
