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 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 celebrate milestones and life's wonderful blessings. My sincere hope is that you would walk away feeling loved and cared for throughout your entire photography experience. Whether I'm celebrating with a graduating senior or documenting the start of a new forever - I strive to create authentic, elegant images that leave behind pieces of a story that will be told for decades to come. '

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 local small towns, grabbing coffee with a friend, or reading a book. I truly believe that any time spent in great company is time well spent.  

I love meeting and connecting with new people, so don't leave without saying hello!
