On WeddingWire since 2011

JTate Design is a wedding photography business based out of Ravenna, Ohio.

First off, and maybe most importantly, I love photography! I am very grateful to have been able to shoot over 300 weddings since 2009 along with countless other shoots. I go into each wedding with the goal of creating a collection of memories based around who YOU are and the style that fits YOU best. Whether it is a classy & antique style wedding, a more creative & fun wedding, or anything in between, I try to fit my photos to your one of a kind celebration.

I would consider myself a candid style photographer, but I can also take charge and guide you as much as you need (if you need help posing for example). You will often find me moving about grabbing different moments and angles as the day flies by.

But it's about the details too! I like to capture the details that you have put so much time into making your day just right. Maybe you won’t hang these photos on your wall, but I hope you'll be able to look back at these photos as time goes on, and re-live your awesome day. The details on the wedding dress. Your guests. The cake. The venue. And so much more. Each one is a part of what makes the day special, and I want to help make your wedding more than you ever imagined it would be.

I have been blessed in my life and I am so glad to be a photographer. I treat every wedding with great care, and I hope that the photos I capture of your day can be used not only to hang on your wall, but to look at as a strength to your marriage and the vows that you promised to each other.

J Tate is definitely the right choice!

Where to begin with Joseph? First we scheduled our engagement photos with him. I NEVER in a million years thought I could be so confident and to have the pictures turn out so beautiful. Joseph is so sweet in his guidance and vision. Following up to the wedding Joseph gave constant communication, answering any questions along the way. Day of the wedding. It was a bigger wedding so chaos had ensued! But Joseph was beyond kind, caring, and punctual. Joseph was not only with us all day but went to two locations and multiple shoots all before the ceremony, capturing some beautiful memories. My bridesmaids and moms even had a hard time lacing the corset on the dress and Joseph comes in to save the day! He was by our side most of the night, I had a schedule I wanted to follow and Joseph was on it more then my coordinator. Joseph also provided so much experience and recommendations throughout the night to me and my now husband which was so nice for us as we were pulled in every different direction but he made sure it was about us. Joseph is so sweet, patient, kind, caring, professional, and very humble with pricing. We would’ve even paid more for the services we got with him, he was seriously our only ‘vendor’ who we didn’t have problems with.
If you can’t tell J Tate is definitely your go to photographer. We will be using him again for all our family photos. Thank you so much Joseph for everything we couldn’t be more blessed!

Joe was excellent to work with from start to finish!!

Joe’s prices are what first made us interested in his work, and by the end of our wedding night, we told him we wouldn’t have wanted any other photographer to capture our big day!!

Joe was always prompt, clear, and kind in all forms of communication with us.

His laidback and easy-going approach fit well with ours. And that is not to say that Joe’s professionalism or attention to detail were compromised. I appreciated him adjusting my cathedral veil and train of my dress for many shots he took. Joe was on top of it and reliable without being overbearing or overwhelming throughout the entirety of working with him.

On the day of, he had some unique and beautiful ideas for shots which we loved. He was also not up in everybody’s faces yet still managed to get SO MANY beautiful shots of everything on our big day.

We recommend Joe to anyone looking for a professional and quality photographer who is a pleasure to work with.

Excellent and Professinal

He was very professional and knew what he was doing. He was not in the way at all and could barely tell he was there. I highly recommend JTate Designs
