hey everyone! thanks for your interest in the jbm weddings blog.

jbm at the bold italic love/make wedding expo

jbm weddings was thrilled to be a vendor at the bold italic’s well-attended love/make wedding expo. we were represented by our lovely and talented associate photographer erin prado. thanks, erin!

this event was our first appearance on the west coast as a business. we were founded in brooklyn, ny and have since expanded to our future home in san francisco. needless to say, it was a very exciting day for us.

after getting a glowing report from erin, we learned that the event was a huge success all-around. in fact, it was so well-attended that we were cleaned out of business cards and information packets after only two hours. i guess that’s a good problem to have, right?

in erin’s own words, there lots of “oos and awwws” as people strolled by, stopped to talk and watched the slideshow of our favorite work. there were so many incredibly talented and creative vendors at the event and were honored to be amongst them. not to mention, the tables looked amazing!

overall, jbm weddings was very well-received and we couldn’t happier.

if you were there (or you weren’t) and would like to see how it went, take a look through erin’s images below. enjoy!

amber + billy : williamsburg, ny

amber and billy’s wedding was one to remember. it was a gorgeous, sunny, FREEZING day by the water in williamsburg. some of the things that i loved about this wedding were the venues (who doesn’t love the wythe hotel and the brooklyn winery?) and the couple’s willingness and openness for anything. i mean anything. it was about 22 degrees and you should have seen what i put them through at the portrait shoot. jk.

anyways, what rose above everything else was the outpouring of love that i witnessed. they had the most wonderful friends and families.

i was honored to be a part of it.

enjoy!

california connection

as you may or may not know, my wife and i will be transporting our lives this november and moving out west to the san francisco bay area. jbm wedding photography will be bi-coastal and our team will continue to grow on both coasts. needles to say, ash and i have visited california many times together over the past 4 years and i feel a deeper connection with every visit. the connection isn’t just to my surroundings. it’s a connection with myself. i am the best version of myself in california. i want to go out and do things that are good for me.

hiking.

exploring.

yoga.

healthy eating.

creative expression.

love.

leaving the east coast is going to be really hard for me but i know that california is my new home. below is an assortment of my favorite images from our random adventures on our most recent trip. they represent certain aspects that i love about the beautiful state that is california.
