Welcome JNP Associate, Shea!

Since day one - I’ve known that I want to grow my business organically, serve my clients whole heartedly, and produce timeless photos that can be looked back on for years to come. That has been and forever will be the heart and soul behind JNP. 

Over recent years, I’ve also loved building others up and creating a little team here at JNP. Over the last few years I’ve had the honor of having 3 interns and 1 associate photographer who have loved & served the heck out of me, my sweet clients, and who have shown me just how life giving it is to be surrounded by other creatives. Each of these girls mean the absolute world to me, and I’ve always had big dreams to expand my team. 

It couldn't just be about talent behind a camera, but more so about Godly character, truly caring about our clients, impeccable attention to detail, solid work ethic, kindness, and being willing to serve others & make their wedding day experience incredible. My girl, Shea, embodies each of those characteristics and more. She is joyful, caring, genuine, and so much fun to be around! She brings light to every room she walks into.

As most of you already know, my girl Shea is JNP’s newest Associate Photographer & I don’t think I could shout HALLELUJAH any louder from the roof tops!

So much has been going on behind the scenes with this bestie of mine! Over the last year we’ve built the sweetest friendship, I’ve witnessed her tremendous growth, and I’ve seen just how much she loves and serves others. All of these things amount to one heck of a human & having her as one of my interns last year blessed me in more ways than one!

When working with an associate, you will still receive the full JNP experience, joyful & genuine images, as well as consistent editing with the JNP brand! We both have the same goal — for you to feel fully loved and cared for, as well as receive the best photography experience possible! Our brides have and always be our #1 top priority. Our heart and soul is for you to always feel beautiful, cared for, and comfortable behind our cameras. We want to be a team you can trust, who you can lean on, and who makes your wedding day all the more enjoyable and fun!

Shea's couples will still be featured on the blog & on all JNP social media. There is no one else in the world I would trust with my sweet clients and I am so excited to share Shea with the world & to keep filling her calendar with beautiful JNP weddings & for her to make new friendships with the sweetest brides! Cheers to the sweetest friend, we love you and are SO honored to have you a part of the JNP team!

2018 Behind the Scenes

It’s crazy to think that JNP loved and served 34 couples in 2018! With many wedding days comes many moments behind the scenes — some that are so tender & some that literally make me laugh out loud. This year would not have been the same without the girls who shot along side of me. Forever grateful for these friends and 10/10 recommend working alongside your besties. These weekends were some of my favorite simply because of who I was sharing them with. Without further ado, JNP’s behind the scenes of 2018!

From passing out bouquets to fluffing dresses. To showing MOH’s and mama’s how to put in the veil.

To chatting with our sweet brides & hanging with the best videographers. Oh, and taking a little dinner break to sit down for the first time all day, haha!

To realizing I am in fact, a tiny human standing next to groomsmen.

If you have a veil, you can go ahead and bet on a little QT with me under it with you and your cute new husband! All about some flowy veils!

To testing light in a million different scenarios.

To that one time KA had to re-pierce one of our bride’s ears (per the bride’s request haha)!

To making sure our bride’s dresses look absolutely perfect.

To making tiny new besties.

To hanging out with some of the best humans.

Thanks for sharing so many Starbucks coffees, wedding cake, and hours driving in a car. To every selfie, embarrassing moment, and laughing until we cry. This year would not have been the same without these gems!
