As a wedding and family photographer my days are filled to the brim with love stories, happy families, and brand new babies. This brings me joy daily and is why I am constantly pinching myself that this is my job. I have created this blog to give you a place to scroll through the happenings at JBP because all of this happiness shouldn't be kept in a bottle it should be shared! All of our couples and families are special and unique in their own way and it's reflected in the photographs I take of them. The beautiful locations you will see throughout the blog are also a great way to pull inspiration for your next photoshoot. As always, I can't wait to have you in front of my camera so we can make some magic.
