Hi there! My name is Jeri Ann. I am a photographer based out of Augusta, GA - home of the famous Master's Tournament! My specialty is wedding photography.
HOW I GOT STARTED:
I have always carried a camera along with me for as long as I can remember. After expressing interest in opening a business, I was surprised my dad had the same passion when he was younger. My father-in-law was really the person that told me to buy a camera - he noticed that photography was a source of calm for me and how much I enjoyed just taking pictures of "things". My now husband did all the research for me - he's the techy guy and I owe my big girl purchase decisions to him. I will forever be grateful for his input on the best gear to buy, even if I have a small heart attack every time I see the price tag. I wasn't sure if I would ever be good but I thought why not give it a shot? So I did.
MY STYLE: I would say I really like "moody" edits. I love a good contrast to photos with a slight screen look to them. Vivid colors and natural poses are my thing. I really love bridals, boudoir and models - I want every girl to feel beautiful. Glamour I guess is what I'm good at, even though if you saw me it would be the last thing you think, ha!
I did a LOT of research. I still do. I remember emailing every photographer in Augusta asking for help, offering my assistance, etc. No one wanted to help me. Their response was always "practice practice practice". This pushed me to better myself. They were right. All I had to do was practice. You see, if you follow another photographer around all day, you quickly learn THEIR style. It's important to develop your own. I watched tutorials, read blogs and just sat staring at my camera for hours before I got good at this. It didn't happen overnight. But it did happen with several people backing me, supporting me, encouraging me to push myself harder. I couldn't have gotten to where I am today without the HUGE amount of support from my family, friends and clients. I thank you.
Is definitely bright. I'm booking out a year in advance and am incredibly thankful that my hard work and dedication have landed me such an amazing clientele. I thank God for my talent. I would never have met so many incredible people.
XO. -Jeri Ann
