Meet Joe & Melissa Copenhaver

About Us

We're a husband and wife photo/video duo in the Maryland tri-state area specializing in Family, Lifestyle, Wedding, and Real Estate Photography and Videography.

Meet Joe


Joe Copenhaver is a photographer and videographer with over a decade of experience. He fell in love with making images during a summer internship with his best friend at the beginning of high school. Now a full-time working photographer, his work can be seen here at J&M Photo Video, on his self-titled Youtube Channel, and on Washington County Public Schools' media outlets where he calls home from 8:00-5:00. He is a proud #girldad, avid Penguins hockey fan, and never says no to a nicely baked treat.

Meet Melissa


Melissa Copenhaver is photographer who specializes in family, lifestyle, and wedding photography. She had an interest in photography for years, snapping photos on trips. She really fell in love with photography capturing her daughter's first year of life. Outside J&M, Melissa loves being a girl mom, coffee, and organizing... she's a bit obsessed with The Home Edit system.


Our "WHY" & the first one to keep us grounded. Usually found negotiating how many M&Ms she can have for being in a photo. She loves baby dolls, dinosaurs, and Barbies.

“My husband and I had a great time working with J&M for our wedding photos. They helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and captured the day beautifully! We will definitely be working with them in the future for other events."”
