Branson Photographers Steve & Marilyn Jones
Let me tell you how it all began…
For as long as I can remember I excelled in art - from finger painting as a toddler to glueing beans on plates in 6th grade, I just seemed to have a special eye for composition. My first digital camera at age 15 was a cheap point-n-shoot & even though the megapixel count wasn't there, I began practicing composition, angles, and timing. I took it surprisingly seriously.
Fast forward a bit, I first of all consider myself a photographer who happens to be fascinated by weddings. I shot my first wedding a few years ago with a crop-sensor DSLR. Since then, we have invested in the best lenses, best training, and best camera bodies Canon will sell us. We absolutely love shooting weddings to absolute perfection if and when all possible.
My education is in architecture where I finished a degree in Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, SLO. Those five years of University gave me an outlet for my creative side and taught me design skills that transfer directly into my photography work. I consider myself a journalistic photographer primarily - I love sneaking in candid moments, but I have studied casual posing as well.
People can get uncomfortable in front of a camera, but our style is laid-back, calm, and we try to make it fun for couples. We usually hear from couples how comfortable they felt in front of the camera, which for me is TOTALLY awesome.
Marilyn and I got married back in 2010. We met in Kauai, Hawaii and spent a year living there after we got married, but the tropical-island glitter wore off and we moved to the Ozarks in 2011 (I know right?). All I can say is that I couldn't ask for a better woman. Her and I work together as a two-photographer team on location and we work together editing photos as well.
A few other things - We have an amazing cat named Tozer. Marilyn is a Registered Dietitian and works with mommas and babies regularly. I also have a degree in Biblical Studies and a Master’s Degree in Theology and Apologetics, which may sound totally random, but cool I guess. We live in Branson, MO now, but we would love to travel to your destination if you would have us. What about you? What is your story?
Give us a call, text, or email us so we can setup a time to discuss your Wedding - Engagement - Destination - Elopement - Photography needs etc.
