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!

erin was enthusiastic and eager to man the jbm table. we can’t thank her enough for helping us make this transition.


AND it looked super cute, too 🙂


old cameras and crystals. what else do you need?


nopalito killed it. who doesn’t love organic and mexican food?



oakland bakes enticed love/make goers with sweets and treats. seems like cheating!

live music is always good.


ash and i are obsessed with tipis. we want one to be a permanent fixture in our backyard someday. therefore, shelter co is awesome.

14_JBM_LoveMakewe love the concept behind 11 stories. such a great product!


brilliant idea, home sweet flowers. ash and i can never turn down a floral crown.

such a cool idea! there just aren’t places like the poetry store on the east coast. gotta love california!


hunt & gather rentals had one of our favorite displays. it was so beautifully curated! in fact, they had the same vintage camera that we did. all great minds….


i want ALL of this stuff.


everybody needs at least one sharp suit.


that’s why artful gentleman was there to represent!


i really respect the green business practices of locally grown weddings


the space at firehouse 8 is gorgeous. would love to shoot a wedding there someday!


letterpresses are so badass. great setup. well done lilikoi design!

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.




healthy eating.

creative expression.


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.

jbm wedding photography had so much fun meeting couples and making new friends in the local wedding industry at this fall’s brooklyn based wedding crashers event at 501 union. the event was fantastic and everyone’s table looked freaking amazing. it’s such an honor to be part of such an incredibly talented (and cool) network of  professionals.


my amazing wife put together JBM wedding photography’s table (again!) for the evening. couldn’t do any of this stuff without her!


had to represent with some polaroids.


kiss me!

our new albums are so dope. chocolate leather, embossed and custom layouts on every page. SWEEEET.


of course, patina vintage rentals had a killer living room setup for the “ask a professional” portion of the evening.


i have to point out how cute michelle edgemont’s designs were.


see!? michelle also did some lovely visuals for love + brain films.


i feel sorry for anyone who didn’t get to partake in what these food trucks had to offer. delish.


oh my god! is that amber of amber gress photography and courtney of love + brain films? they’re such a killer team. and check out that floral power suit!


i really liked the way that amber setup her table. and who doesn’t enjoy a gluten free vegan cake bite?


yes, that is a functioning rolleiflex. so jealous….


that love + brain films backdrop is a michelle edgemont original.


jove meyer of jove meyer events showing off his wedding flair.


jove’s tables always look awesome.


viva max of viva max weddings ready to field questions.


courtney and ash chatting it up with the illustrious sean doing his thing.


just a few of the treats available from naturally delicious.


the girls of rose red & lavendar. they had THE COOLEST giveaways. tiny air plants (my favorite!) with their cards attached. brilliant!


o yea, frida kahlo was in the house, too.


i have to say, the girls of lion in the sun had one of my favorite tables. very elegant and tasteful. pulled me right in!


anyone who has seen our wedding photos knows that we love drawstring bags with prints! melissa mcneeley of melissa mcneeley events had some amazing giveaways.

thea of hushed commotion and the entwined event made an appearance!

kara of 501 union with some prospective clients.


that’s a wrap!

our packaging got a facelift!

recently, ash and i decided it was time to give our image delivery a little more jbm weddings personality. so, we went from shoving dvds into white paper sleeves and shipping them in a cardboard envelope to this nice (in our humble opinion) boutique packaging.

we hope our clients like it!

– the jbm team
