Back when I joined Fearless Photographers I knew it would push me… After all this is the big leagues. This isn’t just South Carolina, the Southeast, the USA, or North America. Competing in the Fearless Photographers competition means you are going up against the best wedding photographers from all around the world (and Mexico, Italy, and Spain have some absolutely incredible people)!

So yea, I usually just flip though the winning images every couple months and get blown away by all the incredible images taken by the true superstars of the wedding photography industry. But today was different. One of my images was included in the set…. To say I’m excited is a HUGE understatement

Fearless Award by J. Jones Photography
What makes this shot even cooler is the story behind it. This was taken during Kelly and Michael’s wedding day back in January and with the Michael being a local baseball coach, I wanted to incorporate baseball somehow. So I had them toss the bouquet back and forth a couple times in front of “shoeless joe jackson” until I got this shot!

Beautiful Spring Wedding at Twigs Tempietto in Greenville, SC

25 Apr 2013

Sometimes I wish the good shots were easy to get to. You know like you can hope right out of your BMW and stand right there in parking lot and just get that picturesque shot. But that doesn’t really seem to happen very often. Parking lots are pretty ugly. So it usually requires persuading a couple to walk though a very tall grassy field for a few hundred feet, dodge dozens of fire ant mounds, and try to keep the dress clean at the same time. But honestly, that’s what makes those shots so awesome. To most people that just sounds like too much work, so they end up back in that parking lot, where it’s safe… and boring.

I’m happy to say it wasn’t too much for Jessica and Wade this past weekend. These guys are Fearless! They got married at the always gorgeous Twigs Tempietto here in Greenville, SC (where we had our wedding reception). These guys were absolute troopers, and a blast to work with too. Totally in love, and totally perfect for each other. Here are some of my favorites:

Spring Engagement Session | Nikki + Aaron

0
25 Apr 2013

I remember growing up and watching some old re-runs of the brady bunch, but I never thought that I’d actually get to meet the parents behind it. Ok, not the REAL ones. But still, Aaron has three kids, and Nikki has three kids. And they are getting married. Beside watching their bunches of kids they also enjoy making each other laugh, trying to walk though the woods in heels, and sitting in tall grasses by the side of the road. Definitely some of my favorites as well (except the heels part…).

Furman University Engagement Session | Suzanne + Tyson

I don’t blame people for getting at least a little nervous before their engagement sessions. Usually the last time they had been photographed professionally had been as a kid… at JC Penny… with that creepy old dude in the corner.

Thank God things have come a long way since then.

I met up with Suzanne and Tyson a few days ago to capture their engagement photos on the beautiful Furman University Campus. Before you knew it, after walking around the campus and taking a few photos along the way, we found ourselves down at The Peddler for some celebratory drinks. No creepy old guys in the corner, just some smiles and some awesome photos to show for it.
