Capturing the emotion. THAT is what it’s all about for us and to do that we know building a relationship is critical to capturing great images with emotion. Most of our clients become our friends in one way or another, and we LOVE that!
We know not everyone is comfortable in front of a camera (JP is NOT!) so we strive to make each session fun and personal! It’s not about what WE want, it’s about what your dream and vision is for your day!
Better known as Jules, or JP, Julie created JPP from the ground up. God placed in her a passion that goes deeper than capturing moments in a frame, because at her core she is a woman in love with love. She pursues her job & clients with the same devotion that she does for her family, friends, and her faith in Christ.
She would tell that while she adores a photograph filled with yummy-light & a couple smitten for each other; what she loves even more are her clients & the relationships she forms with them. Authenticity, passion, and of course, love are what drives her, her business, and her team. She has quite an obsession over all things pink, good-old vintage finds, her “mushie” teddy bear, the beach, anything that makes her laugh, and Sunday afternoon naps at home. Most of all, she adores the ones her soul loves the most — her family.
Em has it all… great personality, awesome eye for photography, crazy good organizing skills, attention to detail, and a flare for album design. Emily brings a fresh air to the JPP team as our album designer. She truly cares for JP clients as if it were her own business and all JP clients adore her!
She loves all things vintage, and her decorating style is organic and natural (think burlap, mercury glass and lace!)
When Emily is not designing albums for JPP, working her day job, being the best wife to her military hubby, (she could easily be described as a Proverbs 31 wife) or building her own sweet little photography business in the Hampton Roads, VA area, you can be sure to find her in one of three places… Target, TJ Maxx, or Panera, or possibly all three in one outing!
Emily’s faith has guaranteed she is a sweet soul, and all about helping others!
Kate came to JPP in 2012 wanting to break into the wedding industry, not necessarily as a wedding photog, but more on the coordinating/planning side of it all. Kate learned the camera quickly and understood the ways of JPP and what was needed to make a fab assistant! She is great with clients, helping put people at ease, being Julie’s eyes and ears on shoots and at events.
Kate bring spunk and dedication to the team with her willingness to learn and grow with each event. The sweetest & smiley’est blonde you’ll ever meet, she has a deep love for the outdoors, friends, and weddings. When she isn’t assisting JP at a wedding or event, rocking the iPhoneography at our love sessions, or stylizing our couples, you can find Kate at a cafe with a latte & her laptop. It’s the simple things in life that make her heart happy & we love that her attitude at JP reflects that. She loves a little city life, Michael Kors, and a night out with her girls.
Ashley’s creativeness is rock solid. She is a go getter, and if you even mention an idea as a side note, she is quick to research possibilities and make it happen! Her creative juices are always flowing & she isn’t afraid of a few power tools to make her crafty-vision come to live. The newest member of the JPP team, when Ashley is not editing, designing promos for JPP, helping with packaging or pre-designing proof books (sometimes known as the behind-the-scenes lady & glue to this whole operation) you will find her baking or creating her awesome mouth watering Orea truffles, making ‘supply cakes’ for her children’s teachers as gifts, or working out to become a healthier Ashley! You go girl!
Ashley comes in to the office and immediately knows what to do, even without a “to do list” and doesn’t mind if letting Selah the dog out is one of those things! She rocks out Same Day Edits like nobody’s business and helps keep the workflow on track!
Ashley is sweeter than pie, always has a smile, flexible, and a quick learner. Her family is the love of her life & she enjoys spending her days with her man & their little ones. Give this girl a sweet tea, a DIY project, & some paint and she is set!
