Hi guys!! Thanks for landing here. We are a married couple ( 5 years and counting ) who have two totally crazy and adorable golden retrievers. We started J&D Photo back in 2013 right before we got married ourselves. Since then we have been honored to document over 120 weddings and countless portrait shoots. Our favorite part about what we do is the people we meet along the way. It’s such a joy to share in others joy. Over the years, we have expanded our services to also include videography + photo booth rentals! Richmond, VA is home base for us - we both grew up here - but we love adventures and are happy to travel to wherever you need us!
Here’s a few things you should probably know about us
- We went to high school together, but never dated. We ran into each other at Three Monkey’s years later and that’s when the Jada + David story officially began.
- Jada graduated with a degree in photography from UVA.
- We love dogs - especially golden retrievers - and we treat our fur babies like real babies.
- We have matching camera tattoos.
- We only fight when we get hangry - but that’s normal right?
Our photography style? It’s bold, timeless, and authentic. We love capturing candid moments that show you as you really are - being your goofy + crazy self. We’re all about clean edits, true colors, and stunning black and whites that can last the test of time. 20 years from now we want to you to be able to look back on these photos, have all the memories come flooding back, and feel just as happy as you were the day they were taken!
