Forever Capture the Beginning of Your Journey

Engagement sessions are a great opportunity to capture the simple delights of love and family as you embark upon the wonderful journey of marriage. Allow us to capture that spark you felt when the words, "will you marry me?" first hit your ears. You choose the location that is important to you as a couple; we do the rest. We want you to feel comfortable, providing minimal direction and guidance to capture the most organic moments that you will cherish forever.

Engagement portraits can be useful in many ways including family gifts, home decor, and of course embellishments on your wedding day. Its becoming increasingly popular to turn engagement portraits into an album to display at the wedding. We've taken this one step further with our Wedding Wish Book, allowing you to combine your engagement album and your guest book.

Let us use our artistic minds to turn the love you have for one another into works of art.

The Guest Book, With a Twist

J Row Photography's Wish Book is a fresh approach to the traditional guest book. We consider it a guest book with a twist. Your favorite portraits are put into a custom designed album in which your guests can write you well wishes on this joyous day. Guests enjoy looking through your images, and seeing the deep-rooted love you share for one another, inspiring thoughts of love to pass along. When you look back through your wish book you will be reminded of the love you and all of your family and friends share together.

Wish Book Highlights:

  • Photographic Pages: Printed on high-quality photographic paper, smudge proof as well as water resistant
  • Lay-flat Design: Flush mount, lay-flat pages allow your photos to take center stage. There is only a small seam, that doesn't interfere with the presentation of your images
  • Customizable: A stylishly designed cover that can be customized with your photo choice. Available in eight elegant colors. We design the pages, and your album will not be printed until your final approval.

Newborn to One Year Sessions

Newborn Session

Your baby's first weeks will fly by, be sure to forever capture the innocence of these fleeting moments. One goal of a newborn session is to get all of the wonderful details up close. We're here to capture all of your baby's darling new features. We can we capture family photos, with any family present at the session. We get many requests for using simple props and will bring them to your session. Please let us know if you have any special requests!

Please do not fret over fussy newborns - we have many techniques for soothing babies.

*Note - Case by Case - time varies based upon the cooperation of your newborn. Some sessions tend to be a breeze, others take the full 3 hours. Post processing is also a more detailed process so DVD turnaround may be extended.

I'm One! Session

Capture the completion of one year in existence with a full session ending in a triumphant "cake smash." Ideally they are walking or standing really well. We love to have parents bring cakes and balloons, and we can suggest a cake decorator if you want help. We save the messiness for the end of the session of course, but the fun cake smash is a must!

Testimonials

  • Becky and Chuck, Baltimore, MD

    "Jesse was very flexible and willing to work to exactly what our needs were during our engagement session. It's nice to be able to have the flexibility and know we can count on her. We are looking forward to her shooting our wedding in a few months - we can't wait to see what creative angles she brings to our day."
  • Craig and Tiffany, Cockeysville, MD

    "We had a wonderful experience with Jesse of J Row Photography at our engagement session. She was very professional but was also congenial and flexible which made my fiancé and I both feel very comfortable throughout the session. We couldn't be happier with the results!"
  • Gaby, Takoma Park, MD

    "The photos are absolutely gorgeous -- We love your creativity and retouching, especially the B/W photos with a splash of color. They captured all valuable aspects of the wedding in ways that we did not even imagine beforehand, including creative shots of the rings, the bride's bouquet (even rings in the bouquet!), the bride's dress, family and friends, etc."
  • Robinson Family, Bethesda, MD

    "Jesse was very accommodating to our schedule and helped make the experience of our portrait session very laid back and fun! J Row Photography has a very flexible format, Jesse took our opinions and our suggestions were used, and it was a very friendly experience. Our friends and family just loved the images, and they made great presents!"
  • Sandra, Silver Spring, MD

    "Jesse took the time to make herself part of our event. She immersed herself in things, and got some wonderful - absolutely wonderful - action shots of the children and the adults. Part of our event was at a rock climbing facility and Jesse climbed the walls so that she could get close-up action shots. The resulting pictures are priceless. Fantastic work!"
  • Stephanie, Baltimore, MD

    "I would definitely recommend J Row Photography to all friends and family and I would hire them again in a heartbeat for any photo needs in the future. Jesse was very patient with my 6 kids and she got lots of beautiful action shots as well as posed shots. Jesse is creative, professional and fun. The pictures will be cherished for years to come. "
