Relaxed Memphis Wedding Photography By Studio J

Your wedding photographs should reflect who you are and what makes you unique.

My goal is to get to know you so that your images showcase the people and the things that are important to you. On the wedding day, I will work to capture images in a relaxed style that allows your personality to shine through.

The selection of images below roughly follows the timeline of a wedding day. Feel free to scroll through them and also check out the “Real Weddings” tab to see collections from specific weddings.
