Meet Joseph, Deb & Dolly...
Deb has been a photographer most of her life. Her love for photography began by photographing her siblings using the curtains and window sill in her bedroom. Her mom developed countless rolls of 110 and 35mm film from her 'photoshoots!' Her love for photography continued to grow as she worked at a portrait studio and then apprenticed under a professional wedding photographer.
"I always wanted to photograph a wedding and to this day, it is my favorite event to photograph!" Deb has been photographing professionally for over 14 years.
Joseph and Deborah met at church and then got to know each other when she shot his senior photos. Deb says, "Best payment I ever got!" Joseph, who had always liked to 'tinker' with cameras, brought his creative eye and troubleshooitng skills to help out on photoshoots soon thereafter. They were married in February 2007, God blessed them with children, and they call Harrisburg, PA their home.
"It's amazing to work with my best friend! During a ceremony I will glance to where he is photographing and he'll wink at me. :) Together, we get to meet great people, photograph them on the happiest day of their life, as well as capture their family memories thereafter! What a privilege and joy it is!"
Dolly is Deb's 'little sister' and has shadowed her since she was young. Five years ago she became one of her assistant photographers and today is an incredible photographer in her own right and also handles most of the office editing and ordering.
Joseph and Deb shoot most of the weddings and events together as a team and Deb & Dolly handle most of the other photoshoots. Deb & Dolly also work separately on many photoshoots and often times get mistaken by their clients as the 'other sister!
The name "Photos by Deb" kind of stuck after Deb had a check written out to that name in the beginning of her business venture. Since getting married and having her husband and her sister join her in the business, they felt it was time to change the name to include more than one of them. Thus, J&D Studio, LLC was formed.
Their family team has such a passion for people and a very relaxed and fun approach to all of their photoshoots. Having the experience, knowledge and professional equipment goes a very long way in capturing those 'perfect photos.'
"It's not just a job to us. We take time getting to know every couple so we can capture their day to it's fullest."
