About J&A Photography

Creatively Inspired

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.

I was extremely pleased with the work J & A did for my wedding. They are so professional and experienced. They did a wonderful job of listening to my requests and then also adding their touch and professional advice. They took their time to answer all of my questions and to make sure our wedding day was special. I will always have the wonderful photos to remember our special day! Thank you both so much!

Joel and Andrea were an amazing team to work with; we were so excited to book them for our wedding in June! Before the wedding, we had a fun and relaxed Engagement session with them, and the pictures turned out great! They have such a great dynamic, and we were immediately impressed with the quality and creativity of their photography. Selecting the best photographers was one of the most important things to us, and Joel and Andrea definitely delivered!! They were so easy to work with, and are clearly passionate about what they do. They are also super organized and professional, and provide the Bride and Groom with great tools/resources throughout the wedding planning process. Most importantly, our wedding photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY, it is going to be so hard to narrow down our selections! Also, they were ready for us to view in less than 2 weeks!! We had such a fun and memorable experience working with Joel and Andrea, and can't wait to see our finished album. We 100% recommend them for anyone looking for the best photographers in the State College area!

Joel and Andrea ware by far the best photographers I have ever worked with and I could not imagine anyone capturing our wedding day better. We chose a package with an engagement sessions, and I'm so glad we did. Meeting and working with Joel and Andrea prior to our wedding was not only fun, but it really gave us a feel for how things would go on the big day- which may everything much less stressful, especially for my camera-shy hubby! When we got our engagement shots back, I was blown away and knew that we had picked the right duo to shoot our wedding! On the day-of, Joel and Andrea were total ninjas!! They were not intrusive, discreetly getting the best shots and capturing every aspect of our day, down to the little details. As we looked through our photos (only 2 weeks later!!!), we laughed and cried over how beautifully they depicted the emotion of our day. And it was evidence that they were everywhere all at once!! They got some many little things, yet didn't miss any of the moments between me and my new husband either. I am certain we will treasure our wedding photos forever, and that is all thanks to Joel and Andrea!!!
