Weddings

First of all, CONGRATS!! We’re so excited you’re here! We believe your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and photography should complement, not complicate your experience. We form strong relationships with our couples so that we can ensure they enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible. We want to get to know you as fiancé’s planning your legacy of love, but we desire to become lifelong friends following along with all of your adventures as a married couple.

Being a J&S Couple means you’ll have an authentic, joyful, and real experience with two people who want to know you. We want to celebrate you, with your family and friends. We believe you deserve beautiful images that capture how incredible and amazing your day is, and remind you exactly how you felt in the moment each photo was taken. Because when you open your album weeks, months, or years later we want you to feel the joy and happiness that you felt on your wedding day.

Everything you need to know about an experience with us, and what it really means to be a #jandscouple

THE PROCESS

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 
WORKING WITH US

THE NEXT STEP

Step One: Check Us Out

If you take a look around our website and aren’t afraid we’re a little too cat obsessed, or quirky, and you get a “say yes to the photographer” vibe, then we are fairly confident you’ll enjoy being around us for hours & hours on your wedding day! Like even more hours than you'll be around your new spouse, so let's make sure you'll enjoy celebrating with us!

Step Two: Reach Out

After we receive your inquiry, we’ll read through all the details (the more the merrier!). We LOVE working with authentic and joyful brides and grooms, so if we have your date available, and think we'll be a great fit for the vision of your perfect day, we'll send over some details and a plan to meet with the two of you!

Step Three: Let's Meet!

We love meeting in person for coffee, donuts, or drinks (whichever is more you), over Skype/FaceTime, or even just over the phone! We want to hear all about your story, how it began, and your vision for your wedding day. We'll show you what your day would look like with us. If after chatting, you feel like we're the one's for you, we'll send over info on the booking process!

Step Four: Time to Celebrate!

We're thrilled to have you as a #jandscouple and we can't wait to celebrate with you! We want your wedding day to be everything you've dreamed of, so we jump right into the planning process, and working on a photography timeline with you for your day. We'll also work with your wedding planner to make sure we're all on the same page!

Step Five: Your Engagement Session

We are huge believers in engagement sessions for SO many reasons. And they're just a ton of fun! You'll get some one-on-one time with us. We'll help you feel comfortable and confident in front of our cameras. And you'll have beautiful photos to document the time in your lives between saying "yes" and "I do". And you don't have to worry about a thing!

Step Six: Prepping for Your Wedding Day

As your day gets closer, we'll finalize details with you and your planner. Timelines, our wedding day questionnaire, and our best tips & tricks for amazing photos. Our goal is to eliminate as much potential wedding day stress beforehand as we can, and be there with you day of to help guide you through your timeline, for the best, most joyful day ever! 

Step Seven: The Big Day

Woohoo! Your wedding day, the day you've been dreaming about, is finally here! That means it's time to celebrate, and we can't wait to meet your family & friends! We'll be capturing your story the way it unfolds, getting a mix of candid photos, and portraits. And our favorite part of the day is when we get you two alone for your first portraits as husband & wife!

Step Eight: Delivery Day

Aside from some sneak peeks on social media, you'll also find a blog post all about your wedding day on the J&S Journal on Tuesday of the week after (like a little over a week)! And within 4 weeks of your day, your online gallery will be up and ready to share & view! It's a great way to share your day with those who weren't able to make it, and to post on your social media!

Step Nine: Your Legacy of Love, in Print

After your day, we'll get to work having your album professionally designed, so that you can have the real thing in your hands as soon as possible. Most of our couples choose to invest in albums not just for the present, but for generations to come. And that's why we believe in investing in handcrafted, professionally designed albums, so that you can relive your day over and over again. 

I hate to sound cliche, but Jocelyn and Spencer made all of our photography dreams come true.

The First Heirloom

Your wedding Album

Did you ever sit down and turn the pages of your parent's wedding album to see where it all began? We love to imagine future generations doing the same, and we know technology is always changing. That's why we believe in delivering strong, timeless albums. Not just for the present, but for your future, and the legacy of love that begins with your story. Because we believe your story deserves to be told. And passed down with your parents' and grandparents' albums. And when you do, you'll remember your day, with laughter and tears. 

AS SEEN ON

Each of our #jandscouples are super authentic, joyfully in love, and basically our favorite people in the world! And that's why we've handcrafted an amazing experience, just for them.
