Our Story - Krista and Jerry Photography

Who We Are...

We are Krista and Jerry - an outgoing couple of artists who find themselves in the luckiest spot in the world - partners in life and partners in business. We met in Virginia in 2003 - at work. From the beginning of our long and wonderful relationship, teamwork was easy for us. Working a variety of different jobs together, we knew early on that we had something special in our enjoyment for achieving goals as a team. In 2009, we applied that drive and teamwork to obtaining degrees in our favorite field: photography. We attended Antonelli Institute where we were trained by the most amazing professionals who helped us prepare for a career in photography. Appreciating all things love, we began to capture growing families as new babies were born and as people tied the knot. Today, we continue to capture that love in people and feel totally lucky that we have this opportunity. We love to capture love! We know that your love story, your wedding, your children and families, your life together are their own works of art, and we approach them as such, ready to capture your moments creatively in an organic, photojournalistic style. Having been featured on publications such as BuzzFeed Weddings, OffBeat Bride, Shenandoah Valley Bride, David's Bridal and more, we are proud of our traditional and contemporary training and cannot wait to apply that knowledge to your special moments!

What You Can Expect...

When you book your session or wedding with us, you are getting so much more than photographers. You are gaining two friends. Friends you can call to ask questions (we’re here for you!) about all ends of your wedding or photo shoot. Friends you can call to chat with, friends you can meet for coffee, and friends who also want to use their skills to turn the moments in your life into pieces of art. Friends you can meet up with after all the shooting and printing is over with for a dinner or a drink! When it comes to capturing your moments, we do not take it lightly. We understand how important your wedding day is, how important your family session with all of your loved ones is, how special it is that you are together, how important it is to have quality art that you can keep in your home and on your walls. It is an honor and responsibility we take seriously.

Why We Do What We Do...

Of all the business ventures a person (or couple) can take on, why did we choose photography? It was easy really...there was no choice at all - more like photography chose us. It was a calling we both felt compelled to answer. Through years of trying to settle into other very secure lines of work, we could never ignore the urge to have a camera in our hands, to capture moments that we were experiencing, and to provide people with something that made them feel different emotions. Every step of the way has been an adventure full of excitement, fear, question, joy, education, and gratitude. We are lucky to be able to have a place in this industry, and we are lucky to work with so many amazing people.

A Little More About Us...

Important advice we were given as students and try to follow now is to keep boundaries between our work lives and our personal lives. We value a healthy work/life balance, and regularly carve out time in our lives for those wonderful joys that money cannot buy. Spending time with our family and friends is super important to us. Whenever we can, we enjoy hiking through the stunning and breathtaking Shenandoah Valley, which has so many incredible views and experiences to offer. Having spent almost a decade living in Philadelphia, we make time to regularly return to the city of brotherly love to visit our lovely friends and colleagues, enjoy date nights, and work with new and returning clients.
