A portrait and lifestyle photographer with southern roots. I see differently. The simple touch between a couple in love, the way the light hits a building, the shop owner putting out his produce that you walk by every day. It’s all beautiful to me. Documenting people, places, and culture is what I’ve been passionate about since the moment I picked up a camera 13 years ago.
The sole purpose behind JMV is to tell your story honestly. I want to preserve your memories forever, but in a way that honors who you are. I want my photos to have integrity. I never want to pose you in a way that feels anything more than the person you are.
When JMV tells your story, you will be treated like a friend. We WANT to hear your love story. We STRIVE to focus on the elements of your story that are important to you, and in turn capturing them so the little details don’t go unnoticed. Is it the way your partner grasps your hand so gently? Is there a certain place that’s special to your relationship? Or an heirloom that’s been in the family for years? My goal is for you to look back on your day and remember how the moment felt. Whatever it is that holds meaning to you, let’s keep it alive.
