Beth is a seasoned photographer who earned a degree in photography and digital media from
FIT. She has experience working in photography departments of major magazines such as
Cosmopolitan and New York magazine and has worked with celebrity photographers Deborah
Feingold and Danielle Levitt. Beth really found her calling after agreeing to photograph a
friend’s wedding. She found a love being behind the camera and capturing meaningful moments.

an incredibly creative outlet and a way to learn about cultures and traditions other than her own.
We are so lucky to have her talent and perspective on the JBP team.
Mary’s love for photography began at an early age. She got her first camera at 13 and there was
no turning back from there. She studied photography and even started shooting weddings in high
school, gaining that in field experience from a young age that is so hard to come by. This passion
for photographing weddings continued into her twenties and into her own time to get married
and take time away to build a family. After her babies were grown, Mary renewed her love for
taking photos, and shot for a few different studios before finding a home with JBP. Mary finds
happiness in the connection of being with people on the most important day of their lives. The
significance of a wedding being the first chapter in a family’s story, has a truly special meaning
for Mary, and is what makes her love for what she does grow in bounds. We are so blessed to
have Mary on the JBP Team.

Christina received her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Quinnipiac University. From
there she jumped straight into the NYC advertising world. She worked for a few years at 106.7
Lite FM developing marketing campaigns for clients and then moved over to writing in a
traditional advertising agency as a copywriter. She absolutely loved that time in her career but
left the hustle and bustle of New York when her twins were born. During the time when her
babies were still tiny, she wrote a children’s book that was published in 2019. As a former JBP
bride, Christina and Janelle had known each other for years when they sat down to discuss a
creative position for her within the JBP. You will find Christina’s writing and voice weaved
through all of the JBP mediums. We are so thankful to have her perspective as a JBP client and
her gift with words on board with us.
With a Degree in Fine Arts, Cassandra has helped shape the JBP Lifestyle Brand with her baby whispering technique and iconic family photos. While studying Fine Arts, Cassandra only took photography as an elective, intending it as a fun class to fulfill her arts requirement. Years later, the birth of her first son prompted Cassandra to abandon her Fine Arts path and devote herself solely to photographing babies and families full time. Now a mother of three, Cassandra knows all of the tricks to connect with children and calm newborns. Nothing brings her more happiness than helping other families create lasting memories, especially of those first few days of a newborn’s life that most parents are too sleep deprived to remember. In the little spare time, Cassandra also volunteers at the March of Dimes, donating her time to photograph other NICU families like her own.
Originally an Architecture and Graphic Design student Andrew never imagined he would become a Professional Photographer. Starting out with his father’s vintage Canon AE-1 is where his love of photography began. He began as an Architectural Photographer with photographs published in the NY Times & Wall Street Journal. All that experience gave him the opportunity to shoot for some major hotel brands all across the United States which he still does during the week.
After a good friend asked for him to shoot their engagement photos, Andrew quickly became enamored with wedding and portrait photography. Witnessing their happiness and capturing their true emotions is something that he truly loves to do. In his free time, you will find Andrew hiking, traveling, playing sports, getting lost in nature or just simply hanging with his dog Elmer.
