About

$3,950 Most Popular Price

We are Joel and Andrea Knepper, owners and operators of J&A Photography. We have both been involved not only in photography but the visual arts our entire lives and are honored to be able to utilize our talents to create beautiful family heirlooms for our clients. We started out small in 2004, shooting mostly weddings and the occasional portrait, but it wasn’t long before we became well known in the area for our creative style and fun approach.

We think of our role in your wedding as your "creative wedding storytellers". Our number one goal is to best reflect you, while artfully recording your wedding day. We do this by unobtrusively capturing events as they unfold and allowing you and your guests to truly experience the fun and magic of your day. When the time comes, we’ll take the lead and offer up creative and natural ways that will make you look your best – not stiff and awkward. We’re always coming up with fun new ways to get our couples to relax and be themselves in front of the camera, and new ways to capture those moments. By mixing the posed photos with the undirected candids we’ll create a lasting, timeless set of images that your family will enjoy for generations.

    Beautiful photos, wonderful people

    Joel and Andrea photographed our wedding and were wonderful to work with. They both had a great sense of humor and put people at ease. Andrea was awesome with the younger members of our bridal party, and her antics were honestly very likely to put a smile on everyone’s faces, not just the kids’. Andrea and Joel were patient and helpful, not just the day of the wedding, but also as we discussed what to expect before booking and after, as we planned out the day. The pair also provided clear instructions that helped us, two very poor models, look photogenic. The photos they took were beautiful; they captured so much emotion throughout a very long day. We would recommend them to anyone else looking for fantastic photographers for their special day.

    Amazing Couple To Work With!

    Andrea and Joel were simply amazing. From the first correspondence and working with them from across the country, to the day of the wedding, communication flawless. They completely understood our vision for the wedding and captured those moments perfectly. We met prior to the wedding and talked through the entire day and they helped set our minds at ease. They also scoped out the venue the day before the wedding to make sure we took photos is some beautiful spots. They were organized and professional, but they also cared so much and made the entire day so enjoyable. They are truly amazing at what they do and we had a blast with them the entire day. We cannot wait to find a reason to work with them again…maybe maternity photo shoot?? We 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer! Thank you so much Andrea and Joel!

    Fantastic photographers!

    Joel and Andrea are amazing! They are so kind, funny, and easy to work with. We were nervous that we would feel awkward during our engagement photo session and on wedding day, but that was not the case! They made us feel at ease and gave great suggestions throughout the photo session. They helped keep us on time on wedding day, which we greatly appreciated. Also, they were super easy to contact for scheduling, discussing wedding day timelines, etc. We have not received our wedding pictures yet (we just got married!), but we were thrilled with our engagement pictures. I would highly recommend this duo!
