I put the "Joel" in


With over 300 weddings under my belt
(and 200 of them as a lead photographer)
it's safe to say I know my way around a wedding.

It's almost IMPOSSIBLE to surprise me. 



Hi! It's me! The founder and owner of JTP. Growing up in Colorado made me fall in love with all things snow (skiing, snowboarding, hockey). I'm a board game junkie and try my best not to flip them when I lose. I also love Ultimate Frisbee and pretty much anything else sports or outdoors related. 

Hi! I'm Oreo! I love frisbee, tennis balls, squeaky toys... basically anything I can use to fetch or make loud noises. I love ALL snacks, but hate getting my nails cut. I don't get to tag along to any weddings, but I keep dad's toes warm while he edits photos. 

Hi! I'm Jules! I met Joel through wedding photography and after working together for a few seasons we became best friends. I'm the biggest Taylor Swift fan you will ever meet and refuse to let Joel listen to anything else when we travel to a wedding (also accepted is the Hamilton soundtrack).


Hi! I'm Kristin! I've been married to Joel for 12 years. He can keep the snow, and I'll take the beach and a margarita! I keep my schedule packed with shooting weddings, working at Messiah University as the Director of Admissions Hospitality, and I play professional Ultimate Frisbee for the Philadelphia Surge. 




Hi! I'm Kalie (kay-lee)! I met Joel via Jules (she was actually my wedding photographer) in 2021. Instead of Taylor Swift, I'll get the early 2000s jams stuck in your head. I'm married with a 3 year old son and lots of cats. 

i promise we're normal
