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.

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!Sent on 05/30/2019

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!Sent on 10/09/2019

Joel & Andrea are amazing and fun to work with at weddings and the product they put out (and the care they put into it) is phenomenal. They're constantly moving around at weddings without getting in the way and organically capturing the REAL moments that matter most!

We have shared many clients with them over the years and we have found that they do a beautiful job of telling each Wedding story in a unique way.
