Welcome to the Jontell Vanessa Photography blog!

Back in September, I had the pleasure of second shooting this lovely Quirk Hotel wedding in Richmond, VA with Hannah of H Marie Photography. Hannah is a sweetheart and I had so much fun shooting this wedding day alongside her.

It was a very rainy day, but Allyson and Binit focused on what was most important to them: being with the people they loved and starting their forever. Their family and bridal party rallied around them to ensure they had the perfect wedding day despite having to make a few weather related adjustments. During his speech, Binit’s best man reminded the couple of a Hindu saying, “a wet knot is harder to untie.” Another reminder that rain on your wedding day is seen as good luck. This was such a sweet reminder that despite some changes in the day, Allyson and Binit were now MARRIED and that was well worth celebrating!

I wanted to feature some of my favorite moments from Allyson and Binit’s wedding on the blog today because their wedding day reminded me why I love what I do (and of course, the Quirk Hotel is absolutely gorgeous, I kind of just want to live there!).

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “

"I am certain that because Jontell got to know me and my brand up front, it allowed her to capture exactly what I wanted.
