“Top 5 wedding photographers in the world 2023” -wpja

Hi, I’m JD, and traveling with my wife Tina, I photograph weddings and elopements all over the west coast. After 15 years and 500+ weddings in the Philadelphia area, we packed everything up, downsized to a home on wheels, and now travel the west coast photographing adventure elopements and weddings in the most epic locations. Wether you’re looking to head into the mountains, winter elope in the desert, or have a more traditional large wedding, I’ve photographed it all and have you covered with award winning wedding photography!

How’d we get here?

The year was 2020 and the government restricted gatherings of humans. This effectively put us out of business as we were primarily photographing weddings with a guest list of hundreds of people. So we decided to pack up our camper and headed west to photograph elopements for couples who still wanted to get married. It ended up being one of the most magical and memorable times of our lives.
Fast forward to 2023. After losing our puppy we decided that life is too short and there is no better time then now. So we got married, sold our home, bought an RV, and hit the road full time.

What is Sonder?

Sonder (n): The Realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own – An epic story that continues endlessly around you.

This has been the foundation of our photography style for the last decade plus. Understanding that every single couple we’ve worked with is unique and has there own story to tell through their photographs.

This foundation has become even more apparent now as we adventure into the unknown and begin telling more non-traditional stories through our elopement photography.

We would love nothing more than to be able to tell your story and to document such an important day in your lives. You can find more info about who we are using the link below.
