Hi! I'm Irene Jones and I own IJ Photo. 2019 marks my 20th year as a wedding photographer. (I shot my first wedding right out of high school and loved it!) Over the years I've learned how to create quality images that capture authentic moments, genuine emotion, and feel full of life. I love working with couples who value storytelling and want to remember every moment of their day. My style is true to life with a photojournalistic spin. I want to capture candid photos that express the joy of your wedding in beautiful timeless tones.
After high school, I attended The Art Institute of Seattle, where I gained inspiration from some of the world's best photographers and artists. After college, I went into weddings full time and have been working with couples ever since. Building IJ Photo was a dream come true for me.
IJ Photo provides packages for budgets of all types. Most importantly, I strive to combine philanthropy with your photography needs. A portion of the proceeds from every wedding is donated to charitable causes.
Prints, albums and a second photographer are also provided upon request. IJ Photo offers the following services:
One event per day
High resolution edited digital files.
Packages with no hour limit
IJ Photo is an inclusive wedding and portrait studio. We love couples of all nationalities, orientations, gender expressions, religious beliefs, and lifestyles. Your love is respected and your faith in us means so much!

Fantastic Wedding Photographer
I seriously can't say enough good things Irene. She was wonderful to work with every step of the way. I was nervous about booking a wedding photographer because having beautiful wedding photos was so important to me. Her work is gorgeous and she was highly recommended by a friend, so we took the plunge. About 15 minutes into our engagement session, I knew we had made the right call. She is seriously one of the best people you will ever meet - she is talented as well as kind, and treats you like a friend while still being incredibly dependable and professional. All the things you want in the person you are entrusting to capture your once-in-a-lifetime day. We could not be more pleased with our wedding photos - they are STUNNING! The only problem is now we can't decide which of her amazing pictures we're going to hang on our walls. Thank you Irene for your amazing work! We are so grateful.Sent on 10/18/2018

You Should Hire Irene
So happy we went with Irene for our photos. She was super professional and easy to work with, always super prompt to respond to any questions I had along the way. Our photos turned out better than we ever could’ve imagined and would most definitely recommend her for anyone looking for great, not overly edited, timeless wedding photos!Sent on 12/30/2019

Phenomenal Wedding Photographer!
If you are still looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! IJ Photo is phenomenal! We met Irene at the Seattle Wedding Show. It was a brief encounter among the many other vendors, but once we were home, we pulled out information on every photographer and checked out their website. We were quickly able to determine what we wanted: well lit and exposed photos with editing that wasn’t overdone and didn’t look like it had instagram-like filters applied to it. IJ Photo stole the show! Irene’s photo quality is excellent. We had an initial meeting with her to go over what we were wanting for during our big day, and she completely understood what we were looking for. We met with her one more time at our venue a few weeks before the wedding to get a feel for the property. She asked us all kinds of questions to get to know our schedule for the day and helped us plan out when/where we would be taking pictures. When wedding day was here, she and her second shooter, Lydia (who is also amazing!), arrived early to get set up and they stuck right to the schedule. Irene wasn’t afraid to move things around in order to get the best shot. She had a vision in her head and would do anything to make it happen. She knows how to make you feel super comfortable and has many tricks to get you laughing! Her time management skills were phenomenal. She was able to take all of our photos and we were on schedule for the other activities we planned. A week after the wedding, we got a first look picture. A couple of weeks after the wedding, we got a cute little app with some more pictures. It was about a month later when our pictures were ready and we went to her house to view a video slideshow of our finished pictures. Oh my, prepare to feel all of the emotions again while you watch! We got thumb drives and a website to share all of our pictures with family and friends. On the website, you can order images and canvases that ship directly to your house, which is super convenient! IJ Photo is an incredible photographer and we are so thankful that she was able to capture our wedding day!Sent on 12/28/2019
