weddings

Your wedding will be a special, intimate day during which you will make lifelong promises and begin a new chapter of life - a new family legacy - with your best friend by your side. The day may pass by in the blink of an eye, but I strive to capture all of the intricate details and unforgettable moments so that you’re able to look back on them for years and decades down the road. 

Details about the wedding experience

One day, you’ll be able to look back on this day and remember the love you felt not only for each other, but also for all of your friends & family who were there to celebrate with you. Your wedding is one very special day, but your marriage will last a lifetime. Joyful & vibrant wedding photos will continue to tell your love story - your legacy- for generations to come.

next step:

After you inquire, we'll get to know each other! You’ll work with your wedding photographer more than any other vendor (other than your planner, of course), so I want to make sure I’m the best fit for you. I’m so excited to meet you and hear all of the details about how you and your sweetheart fell madly in love! Once all of your questions have been answered and we’ve determined the best package to fit your needs, I’ll send over a booking proposal. Once the proposal is signed, I’m officially your wedding day third wheel!

Let's connect

THE WEDDING PROCESS

We’ll go over things like the best season, finding a location that has a special meaning and make sure we iron out all of the details that will go into styling the perfect shoot for you and your sweetheart! This will ensure that by the time your wedding day rolls around, you’ll be a pro in front of the camera.

Together, we’ll plan an authentic engagement session

About six months prior to your wedding day, we’ll start discussing a timeline and logistics that will allow for plenty of time to capture all of your best moments. I’ll send you sample timelines based on what you’ve laid out with your planner, which should help you make some final decisions on how you’d like to allot the precious hours of your big day. I’ll be in touch while we craft your perfect timeline. I’m here for you!

Creating a timeline & plan

You have only one job today: enjoy yourself! Don’t stress about the small details. I promise you the day will go by in the blink of an eye. You don’t want to waste a single moment of it! I’ll be right by your side, capturing all of the tears of joy, the toasts that are guaranteed to be priceless, and the absolutely unforgettable dance moves.

Enjoy your perfect wedding day!

Four to six weeks after your wedding day, I will deliver your gallery! You’ll have full access to all of the digital files to do with them whatever you like! You’re free to share the link with whoever you’d like and you can also order prints and canvases online. If you have decided to add a custom album to your package, we will start the design process after your gallery has been delivered.

DOWNTOWN RICHMOND

I can not say enough amazing things about Jontell. Choosing a photographer was the one aspect of the wedding I was incredibly picky about. I wanted nice photos and I wanted to make sure I clicked with my photographer on a personal level since they spend the entire wedding day by your side. Jontell hit both requirements out of the park. Not only are her photos BEAUTIFUL, but she is so sweet and so fun to have around.  I'm so happy I found her and she was able to photograph our wedding. I would absolutely recommend her - she's reliable, responsive, professional, sweet as can be, and takes the best photos!

Jontell is absolutely amazing at what she does and has an amazing ability to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. She took some of the most stressful points of my wedding and made them fun. She is so great to work with answers all of your questions and makes sure you feel prepared. My pictures were beautiful and she caught so many great candid moments that were so important to me. Can’t wait to work with her again!!

Jontell is amazing, and I am grateful to have had her as our wedding photographer. She was willing to work with us in every capacity, and I am in love with how the photos turned out. We also needed a photographer who could perfectly balance telling us what to do (we're NOT naturals) without being pushy or overly demanding. Jontell walked that line effortlessly, and she made it fun! Cannot recommend her enough!

My husband and I LOVED working with Jontell. We have no model experience, but she made us feel so comfortable in our couples/maternity shoot. The finished product was amazing with stunning colors and perfect backgrounds. Jontell was so talented at finding angles that made for beautiful photos. Quick to respond and punctual on top of a sweet personality and tons of talent- we will be hiring her again!
