In this video I discuss the five main reasons why wedding photography chose me. I may have chosen it in the beginning, but it chose me in the end.
Meet Your Photographer (s)
I have been in the photography business in some form or fashion since 1995. And my team has been snapping photos since the early 80's. As a team we have the creativity, quality and experience to satisfy your wedding photography needs. No matter the venue, style or time of year we have the tools and knowledge to save your special day in photographs to exceed your expectaions.
JCM Photography is three generations of photographers. We have passed the knowledge and passion down through the years. We started out on film cameras and smelly dark rooms. In the mid 90's we discovered the power of photo restoration and editing on the computer. In 2003 we began to transition to digital photography. Within a few years we were 100% digital. This opened up a whole new world of digital post production and photo enhancements. Our experience in photography and digital editing allows us to capture great photos while allowing my team and my clients greater creativity.
All our experience translates to us being able to focus on your images with attention to detail instead of how to operate our cameras. All the weddings we have captured in the past has given use great anticipation of how to capture the special moments and the times special reactions will take place. We offer this and a personalized experience for you.
With my studio located in Madison Heights, VA I am able to serve Richmond, Roanoke, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Danville, Lynchburg, VA and everywhere in between.
