Prince of Peace Catholic Church Wedding Ceremony | Poinsett Club Greenville Reception

3
17 May 2013

It’s always interesting to hear a song live after you’ve heard its recorded version over and over again. When Tara and Chris told me that they would have Edwin McCain singing at their reception I smiled and nodded like I knew who he was. Then I looked online… and then felt very dumb. I’d heard songs like “I could not ask for more…” and “I’ll be…” at dozens of weddings before, and now I was going to be there with the MAN in person. And I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint.

With some of the very best wedding vendors the Southeast has in it’s arsenal, the stage was set for an absolutely gorgeous wedding. The ceremony was held at Prince of Peace Catholic Church and the reception at the Poinsett Club in Downtown Greenville, and were both the perfect backdrops for Tara and Chris to start their life together. With Chris being in the Military and Tara busy teaching it was a special day for both of them, not just because they were getting married, but because they were finally together.

I’m super excited that I’ve been asked to speak at the PPSC (Professional Photographers of South Carolina) meeting this upcoming Monday, May 13th at 7pm! I’ll be presenting “Creating Dynamic Wedding Images” which basically means I’ll be talking about how to make some awesome wedding day images that stand out from the rest. I’ll be going though my approach on the wedding day, and provide some unique tips on how to take your images to the next level. Sound interesting? The meeting will be held at the Fuddruckers on Woodruff Road (1147 Woodruff Rd, Greenville, SC 29607) so feel free to come on out on Monday, eat a gigantic burger, and then listen to me speak about creating some top notch wedding photos!

Admission is free for first timer’s, just make sure to get there early to get a good seat (and burger). It looks like it should be a packed house! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Winner: Fearless Awards | April 2013

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

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:
