There's no doubt that choosing an associate photographer can cause you to be a little nervous. Many times people think of an associate photographer as someone who is less experienced, and someone who doesn't have the ability to be the primary photographer at a wedding. At JMP Weddings, this is the furtherest thing from the truth. Associate photographers have chosen not to pursue their own business, sometimes for personal reasons and sometimes because they just don't enjoy the business side of things. They want to be a part of a team, and simply want to take care of their people (you!) and capture amazing moments. Having experienced Photographers on the JMP Weddings team helps us better serve the inquiries that come through, and creates more availability for families and couples. It also allows us to work with multiple budgets, as we understand that many brides have a certain budget they are working with.
Additionally, you're hiring a team. You get more than just one person watching out for you. Communication is consistent with JMP's Studio Manager as well as lots of personal attention from your photographer. When you hire JMP Weddings, you are getting YEARS of experience along with fun personalities, and professionalism, and of course, beautiful imagery.

Weddings are a huge cornerstone in a couple's life. It's a life changing event in history that will forever impact the generations to follow. Photographing a wedding is special because we are able to capture the story of the couple and give them something to look back upon, as well as an heirloom to pass along to their loved ones.

Each image is reviewed to ensure our quality and style are consistent. We trust that the quality and style of photography you receive will be consistent.
Having two photographers at a wedding allows us to be two places at once. While one photographer is getting pictures of the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids, the second photographer can get pictures of the guys getting ready with his groomsmen. Having a second photographer allows for a second perspective of your wedding day. It allows us to truly capture your day as it unfolds from different viewpoints and give you the best combination of both.
