Testimonials

Anna & Cesar

“J & M were a pleasure to work with. They were always professional but also a ton of fun. We used their photo and video services for our wedding. My family loved all their photos. I am not a huge fan of getting my photo taken and they made me feel so comfortable. I will definitely be using them in the future for other life events 🙂”

FAQ

How do you photograph/video weddings?

We love being by your side to help you plan before your wedding day. On your wedding day, we want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments that make your wedding unique. We capture your day in a journalistic style with pockets of time for posed photos and video clips. We edit your photos and films with true to life skin tones so you look how you looked on your wedding day.

We will be your best friends on wedding day, fluffing your dress so it looks perfect in photos, stalling the DJ because your dress isn't bustled yet, and politely telling your guests to put down the iPad when they are trying to take pictures during your ceremony.

Where are you based and do you travel?

We are based in Hagerstown, MD and yes we love to travel! No fee is applied for a 90 minute radius from Hagerstown. If you want us to photograph or film your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.

When will we get our photos/video?

Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 6 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season we photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints! You will get a preview gallery with 15-30 photos from your day within 1-2 days of your wedding day.

You will receive your wedding video(s) 4-6 weeks after your wedding. You will get an email with a link to Google Drop Box, where you can share and download your video as well as a link to YouTube for easy sharing to your family and friends!

How many photos will we receive?

For 8 hours of coverage (most common), you will receive 700+ fully edited images. We always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why we will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.

Are you still booking weddings in 2024?

Yes! We still have some dates available for 2024! If we are unavailable on your wedding date we are happy to recommend a trusted photographer/videographer in our area if you reach out to us!

We have availability in 2025 and beyond!

Will my wedding film include drone work?

Yes! As long as there are fair weather conditions and your venue is not in restricted air space your wedding video will have drone footage. Joe is a FAA Part 107 licensed UAS drone pilot/operator.

Do we have insurance?

Yes! We carry business insurance and if your venue requires additional insurance we are happy to work with them!
