Weddings are awesome. The bringing together of friends and family, the unique-to-you details, the opportunity to take tonssss of pictures, and celebrating the two of you…in whatever way you decide is best.

You’ve heard it before, right? After your wedding, your pictures and video will be some of the only things you have left to remember that most special day. So when you’re thumbing through your pictures and watching your video, you want to smile, cry and relive the joy of your wedding day all over again. 

At JFP, we aim to produce light-filled, joyful, natural (and hopefully full of some good color) 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 (hopefully on the phone!), things should be pretty easy, and maybe a little fun, too! We’ll talk about what you’re hoping for in your pictures (and video…if you’re interested in that) and how we can make things happen together. Your engagement session will be more like a hangout where we visit a favorite place or a beautiful outdoor setting. We could even eat ice cream, take a boat ride or hike through a forest. (Deep Creek Lake can do all three!) We’ll talk, laugh, 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. I’ll photograph the heck out of your details and encourage you to get snuggly for some romantic, interactive portraits (this translates especially 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 also 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 a hug before it’s all over (and I will definitely hope to try a piece of cake, ha!)

DEEP CREEK LAKE COUPLES – please let me know if you need help planning. I know the local pros and the locations…all the Deep Creek things! And I am happy to help beyond photography! 🙂

Both photo-only and photo + video packages are available for Deep Creek weddings, big and small, and elopements too. 

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...
