About Us

Meet the JH Photography Team!

In a world where everyone with a camera is a “photographer”, we specialize in creating magazine-worthy images through creative posing and dynamic studio lighting.  Even our outdoor Toledo photography includes studio lighting, which gives each and every portrait we create even skin tones and amazing eye detail that would otherwise be lost to shadows.  We’ve learned and trained with some of the top photographers in America through private mentoring and workshops so we could bring the very best of the creative world to Toledo, Ohio.  We are members of BNI-Ohio, Professional Photographers of Ohio, and Professional Photographers of America.

I’m married to my wife, Tami, and we have 2 wonderful children in Sylvania, Ohio.  I’ve spent half of my life in Kentucky and the other half here, so I can blend into being a northerner and a southerner at the drop of a hat!  I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Terra State College in 2007.


Starting out with a graphic design major, I realized that I could channel that artistic emotion into photography.  While wedding photography isn’t for everyone, I honestly adore weddings!  My specialty is capturing all the special moments the bride and groom may see, and also surprise them with the ones they didn’t see.  My personality is fun and easy-going with my style ranging from high-end portraits to candid photography.


I live in Bowling Green, Ohio with my husband and mastiff, Beatrice.  I initially pursued videography and film making in college, but realized that photography was the ultimate creative outlet. I graduated with a BS in Communications, and pursued photography further through classes and many hours behind the lens.

I love photographing people.  I am extremely sentimental.  I love symbols and physical reminders of things that are important, which is why I am such a strong advocate of photography.  Our loved ones will not be with us forever and photos are a way to keep close, preserve, and ultimately leave a piece of ourselves for the next generation.  I love the challenge of capturing the essence of who someone is in a single portrait.

I grew up in Bowling Green, Ohio and was in the middle of a large family of eight. I graduated with honors from Goucher College near Baltimore, MD and participated in their study abroad program for a year in Exeter, England. During my college years I also lived in the Pocono mountains and northern Michigan. I currently reside in Monclova township with my family.

Growing up in a large family, everyone has their role. A majority of the time I tended to be the observer, the listener, the peace-maker. It is in my nature to take in the details of a situation, and I definitely nurture that quality in my photography. My formal training took place in the old school dark room, where I learned to develop my own negatives and photos. In the years that followed, everything turned digital and I followed the trend.  Capturing moments of happiness, of the most memorable days in people’s lives, brings joy to my heart.

I grew up in Arkansas, and then moved to the good state of Ohio after graduating college (P.S. I still love barefooted summers and big trucks!). I met and fell in love with my wonderful husband, Jeremy, 8 years ago.  Our Cocker Spaniel dog, Lucy, completes our little family of 3.

My passion for photography began when I was just a teenager.  Growing up in a single-parent home, sometimes it was several years between visits with my dad.  On one of those first visits, he bought me my first camera.  It was then that I learned the importance of portraits and photography.  We didn’t have any professional family portraits growing up or even a wedding album of my parents’ wedding day.  All those memories have now faded with time.  It’s been my mission ever since, to help families and couples document their memories so that they can be passed on generation to generation!
