WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT COMMUNITY, LOVING & SERVING OTHERS WELL, AND PRESERVING MEMORIES. YOU'LL MOST LIKELY FIND US TRAVELING, DRINKING COFFEE, OR AT TARGET!

let's be friends

Hi! I'm Jessi, but you can call me Jess. My husband and I both graduated from Clemson, and we have been married for almost 6 years! We live in the heart of Greenville, SC, with our golden, Sampson.

On your wedding day, yes, I am your photographer. But I also want to be someone you can trust, who you can lean on, and who makes your day all the more enjoyable and fun. I have zipped dresses, I have put on eyelashes, and I have touched up makeup, I have given hugs when needed. 

My goal is to make you feel comfortable, beautiful, and cared about. I love relationships and friendships more than I love photography. The heart and soul behind JNP is to come alongside you, love and serve you well, while also preserving memories from when your together began.

Hi there! I’m Shea, just like the butter! I’m newly married to my sweet husband Daniel, and we live right outside of Greenville, SC. I’ve always loved love, and think I might be Hallmark channel's number one fan!
 
You're getting married, and that is truly something to celebrate! I love all of the pretty details of the wedding day, but I also believe in the importance of the marriage that comes out of it. 
 
My goal is to serve you wholeheartedly throughout your season of engagement, and to be a steady encouragement the whole way through! I hope that you come out of your JNP experience feeling fully cared for, and cherish the images that captured the start of your love story.

I love a good pun & burning way too many candles. Some may say I am a Game of Thrones fanatic, and I would say they are correct. There is nothing I love more than pillow talk with my best friends and going on adventures.

In 2018, I had honor of marrying my high school sweetheart, Daniel. He is the slow & steady to my chaos & crazy. The newlywed season has been so fruitful, and love calling Daniel my roomie.

I have always loved taking photos, for the sole reason of protecting memories. Life is precious, and getting to capture all the smiles, laughter, & joy, even the heart wrenching moments is what lights my soul on fire. Jesus gives us all gifts & I believe one of mine is to capture people's stories.

The JNP Location Bucket list

With travel comes the craving for more travel, and with that I've looked into where I'd love to go & have people behind my camera! So, I've compiled a list of beautiful places I'd love to visit and where I'd love to photograph a wedding, session, elopement, you name it! We've crossed off a few in 2016, but honestly, this list will never be complete because my wandering heart wants to go all over the world. If you're getting married in any of these places, eloping, traveling for an anniversary, you name it, Braden and I would love to come along and capture some pretty images for you!
