Branson Photographers Steve & Marilyn Jones
It’s pretty crazy how I ended up working as a wedding photographer, but it kinda makes sense looking back. The pieces seemed to all fall in place. I bought my first digital camera at age fifteen & even though the megapixel count wasn't there, I began practicing composition, angles, and timing getting the perfect frame and perfect expression. I travelled all over the world through college taking photos and a passion was growing underneath the surface. I didn’t realize that this could be a job.
I shot my first wedding a few years ago after I bought a professional DSLR. I consider myself a journalistic photographer primarily - sneaking-in candid moments whenever possible, but Marilyn and I also love directing our couples to capture gorgeous portraits that look more candid than posed.
Minimizing stress on the wedding day is our main focus in how we approach the day. “Stress-free” is the most important thing we try to offer besides gorgeous photos. We want to work hard so you can enjoy your day. We tend to show up as organized and informed as possible to make the day go smooth.
Our love story: Marilyn and I found each other in paradise back in 2009. We met in Kauai and spent a year living there after we got married, but the tropical glitter wore off and we moved to the Ozarks in 2011 so Marilyn could finish her education. All I can say is that I couldn't ask for a better woman. She and I work together as a two-photographer team on location and we work together editing photos as well. She has a tremendous eye for color, toning, and style and I always have her look over my edits. I trust her.
A few other things - We have an adorable little Kitty named Tozer. He is fabulous. Marilyn is a Registered Dietitian and I handle the photography business full-time. We live in Branson, MO now, but we would love to travel to your destination out-of-state or tropical destination wedding as well.
