About Us.

We are a married couple obsessed with golden retrievers, take out, and bold emotion!

J&D Photo was established in 2013 by Jada and David Parrish. Since then, they have photographed over 120 weddings, grown their team, and expanded their services to also include videography + photo booth rentals. They travel frequently for weddings and events, but home base is their Richmond, Va studio located in Historic Jackson Ward.

Jada + David attended the same high school (Trinity Episcopal School) but it wasn’t until they ran into each other years later at Three Monkeys that things really took off. They got married in 2013 (click here to check out their wedding day) and now have two adorable golden retrievers - Nala + Joey!

When they aren’t photographing, you can usually find them trying out new restaurants, cooking in the kitchen, or playing with their pups at the river.

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!
