Hi! My name is Jeremiah Skinner. I grew up in Gloucester, Virginia, and after moving around a bunch, I currently live in Newport News, Virginia. The gorgeous babe in the black coat is my wife Hope, and yes, I do make that weird face when I’m taking pictures. I’ve photographed weddings as far west as Kansas and as far east as the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to photograph events and Central American orphanages for non-profits. Photography has opened doors for me that I didn’t even know existed, and I’m excited to see where it takes me next! I’m also a graphic designer, which you’ll see sprinkled throughout my blog and portfolio. I specialize in non-profits, and I’ve had the opportunity to work for some causes I’m really proud of.
At first I thought it was incredible that someone liked pictures I had taken enough to want me to document one of the biggest days of their lives. As the years have gone on, I’ve come to realize it’s an honor. Knowing that the pictures I take will be how you remember your wedding for years to come is a true privilege. I’m not there just to catch a picture of the flower girl tripping or the groomsmen making weird faces behind the groom’s back. I want to be at your wedding to capture the love and commitment you have for each other, the pride on your family’s faces, and the joy that your wedding day brings.
If you’re in love and planning your big day, or if you represent an organization that’s trying to change a piece of the world, get in touch with me.
My experience with Jeremiah was more than excellent. It was exceptional. Not only does he capture pictures that take your breath away, he is honestly one of the nicest and easiest people to work with! He took the awkwardness out of posing for shots and turned it into lasting memories. I have already done two sessions with him and he covered my wedding. I cannot wait for the next milestone of life to happen so he can capture it too!
The picture of me and Hope was shot on film by our good friend (and our wedding photographer) Zack Schultz.
