Joyce & Jim {engaged}

JP Love sessions, engagement, Joyce and Jim, JP photography, toledo photographer

When I first met Joyce and Jim I KNEW I wanted to photograph their wedding, but then they left the consultation without booking and I wondered “what went wrong? I thought we were soul mates”! haha Then I got the call (and several texts and emails) that they wanted to secure having me as their photographer. Yippeee!

Joyce said “Your work is beautiful and we just knew you’d get the job done with your personality. And we just connected. You truly love your work and the people in it. We can tell! Jim and I said you’re the type of person we would go out for a drink with.”

And we did. We met for drinks a couple weeks after they signed their contract and I fell in love with them even more. (this is sounding kinda weird, huh?) Just kidding! but seriously, I love having those connections with my ‘clients’ . Building a strong relationship makes for the best photos!

These two just seem to have that chemistry… and, they met online…. E harmony.com! I think they should be in one of their commercials!  I could see immediately their connection and knew I wanted to be a part of it.

Joyce and Jim are incredible people and had ME smiling during their {LOVE} session!

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to capture their day next month as they say their “I do’s” at the beautiful Inverness Club in Toledo.

Until then, here is a sneak peek of the {LOVE} session.

Jim said he had to have the traditional Art Museum pose with ‘the bride in the front and the groom blurred in the back ground’ (that would be called ‘shallow depth of field’) :) I think we got it, don’t you?

Ashley~ office manager extraordinaire!

JP Photography office, office manager, editor, Photography

This girl, yeah, she pretty much ROCKS!

For those who of you don’t already know, this is Ashley. April 15 we are celebrating Ashley’s ONE YEAR anniversary with JPP! She interviewed with me for part time assistant/office help, but after speaking with her a bit I knew exactly where her talents would be most helpful, in the office, doing everything but be ME. LOL

Ashley grew very quickly learning the ins and outs of how I like to run things here, and is fast to offer suggestions and helping hands whenever and for whatever is needed!

I talk a lot (yes, even to myself lol) and before there was no one around to listen… now when Ashley hears even a portion of one of my ideas she is quick to research what is needed to make it happen and helps bring all my ideas to life! From packaging to promos (she is a FAB designer!) Ashley has kept me on track this last year with getting things done and has helped me make JPP into everything I have wanted it to be!

There is still lots to do (and don’t look at the messy office behind the scenes) but with each new step JPP is growing faster and faster!

I’m not going to lie, the last few years have had me contemplating whether or not I wanted to keep JPP open. With having several people work here in the home office, only to capitalize on everything I did here so they could open their own businesses, I know it’s very hard to find trustworthy, non back stabbing folks (yes, I dared to go there)  to work for you. Ashley is a dream team player and I am so thankful every day to have her! We value you loyalty and commitment, and a willingness to take initiative and go one step further!

Happy JPP Anniversary Ashley! I appreciate you!

 

PS when the new website is launched you will ‘get to know’ Ashley and the team behind the scenes a bit better! Keep following along!

Love, Julie

Allison & Dan

Meet Allison and Dan, beauty all around!

They had so much fun incorporating Disney into their wedding, to the music that was played during dinner, and the fun cake toppers!

Here a just a few from their wedding LAST April! (told ya, it has been a while since I blogged!) Just posting what I can here and there until I catch up :)

This moment… when the father of he bride anticipates seeing his daughter for the first time on her wedding day….

dad is STILL filed with so much emotion..

favorite moments of the day: dad filled with so much emotion, the bridal party having fun with all the photos downtown Toledo, and the bride busting out lyrics to old school music on the dance floor!

 

Love, Julie
