Welcome to the Jontell Vanessa Photography blog!

If you want to see a classic Richmond wedding, Janae & Ryan’s special day at John Marshall Ballrooms will give you the best of RVA. Although they live in Detroit now, I love that Janae and Ryan chose to get married in downtown Richmond since it has ties to their very special love story.

Their day was filled with the best energy! Their family and very enthusiastic bridal party showered them with love and it was so fun to capture every single moment. My favorite part of their day was the Second Line Exit that got the party started at the beginning of their reception. It was the perfect way to set the tone for a fun night of dancing!

A fabulous vendor team, beautiful portraits at the state capitol building, and a sweet couple who is so loved by their friends and family. There was so much to love about this special day and I’m excited to share a few of my favorites on the blog today.

Janae & Ryan, thanks for trusting me to capture your wedding! I hope these images bring joy for years to come.

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.
