J+L Photography are a photographer duo and an engaged couple themselves. Seamlessly blending an editorial eye and a photojournalistic approach, J+L Photography aim to capture each wedding day in a timeless way that looks and feels true to each individual client. The pair shoot both film and digital photography and have a passion for capturing the unposed and in-between moments.

Tell us about your business!

We are Juliette and Liz, and we are just as obsessed with your wedding as you are! Juliette has been shooting weddings since 2014, after attending art school to focus on film photography. Liz worked in Apparel Buying for a major corporation before joining Juliette full time in 2020, thus creating J + L Photography. We are an engaged couple ourselves going through the wedding planning process! We love working with couples who are creative, have a love of fashion and design, and are down to earth.

Where are you based?

We are bi-coastal destination wedding photographers, splitting our time between the West Coast and the East Coast of the United States! We primarily shoot in NYC, New England, California and the PNW.

Do you travel for weddings?

We do! Beyond splitting our time between coasts, we also travel internationally for weddings. Favorite past destinations include Tulum, Mexico and Paris, France! We have a wedding in Sicily coming up this fall that we are so excited about!

What inspires you?

The love our clients have for each other and for their family and friends. As cliché as it may sound, watching our couples be surrounded by love on their wedding day truly inspires us and informs how we capture a wedding. Inspiration is truly everywhere and in the everyday. We are inspired by: dappled light and blue hour, wandering art museums, our vintage film cameras, vintage 90's runway fashion, the art of food; sourdough fermentation, edible flowers, and the art of winemaking, as well as the California coast, the architecture in NYC, and our travels in Europe.

How would you describe your working style?

Seamlessly blending an editorial eye and a photojournalistic approach, we aim to capture each wedding day in a timeless way that looks and feels true to each individual client. We are a fly on the wall, capturing the in between and candid moments. We are not afraid to hop in the mix and direct when needed, for instance during family portraits!. Using natural light and direct flash with true to tone film inspired editing, we create photos that feel elevated and editorial yet relaxed and real.

Do you shoot digitally, on film or both?

Both! We shoot both digital and film: 35mm, 120, polaroids, as well as Super8 videography! We include film in all of our base packages, and we also offer additional film add-ons.

Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?

We do! No two weddings are the same, so we love crafting custom packages to suit the unique needs of the day.

What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why?

Film! Our favorite service that we offer is our film photography. The art of film is truly timeless. It makes for the perfect heirloom images. Anytime a couple adds more film onto their package we always get so excited!

Where would you love to travel to for work?

Our dream travel list is so long. To name a few, we would love to travel to shoot in: Northern Italy, the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, Camargue France, anywhere in Iceland, and Cape Town South Africa.

What is your advice to couples getting married?

We are in the process of planning our 2024 wedding, and our advice to other couples is to make the planning process fun. You spend more time in the planning phase than you do on the wedding day. So our advice is to make planning just as special as the wedding itself. We like to make every step of planning a date night. Set up a cheese board or order some take out, pour the wine, put on some good music and get to planning! We have also truly realized the importance of hiring vendors who fully see your vision, who share in the excitement with you, and who offer support along the way.
