- ABOUT -
Hello! I'm Jontell, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Fredericksburg & Charlottesville, Virginia. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a hopeless romantic with a love for art. I got my first camera when I was 14 (mainly because my parents were tired of me always stealing theirs) and I've never looked back. Now, it brings me so much joy to get to use that passion to tell unique stories and document cherished moments. It is an honor to be welcomed into my clients' lives, to get to know their stories, and to have the chance to share in their joy as they prepare for significant milestones. I delight in the opportunity to walk alongside my clients and share in their excitement! Whether I'm celebrating with a graduating senior or documenting the life changing moment when two people become one - I strive to create authentic, elegant images that can be treasured forever.
Although I call the historic little city of Fredericksburg home, I currently spend most of my time in Charlottesville, VA attending the University of Virginia. I’m majoring in Media Studies with a minor in Entrepreneurship and I could talk your ear off about both topics. When I’m not photographing or studying, you can probably find me exploring a vineyard or grabbing coffee with a friend. I have an appreciation for great company and conversation, road trips, reading, painting, and exploring new places.
I love meeting and connecting with new people, so don't leave without saying hello!
