We must stop and cherish the small moments that make up each day, for it is in these intimate times with our family that we build the bonds and relationships that last a lifetime. We are husband and wife Virginia photographers, capturing images of these beautiful family moments—you look at each other, and a feeling of such deep love washes over you that it drowns out everything else.

Our heirloom family photography captures the true spirit of your family, preserving it for generations to come.

Lasting images that celebrate your families unique bond & Joy.

Virginia Family portrait

Every family has a special bond—and incredible stories. But as time passes, memories get hazy and the details fade: so it's important to preserve those moments before they're gone forever.

The best way to preserve and share family memories is by taking heirloom photographs. We help families create beautiful images of the joy they experience together—images that can be shared with future generations.

We love photographing the times when you and your children are laughing together, playing games or just being silly—these moments should be preserved. Not only that, but we want to help you capture these images so that years from now when everyone has grown up, you will still have a way of feeling all over again.

We are committed to helping you preserve your family's legacy by creating heirloom-quality portraits and fine art products that will last for generations—not just digital images that get lost in the cloud.

"I chose Jacob & Brielle for our Newborn Photos based on their Instagram. Their portfolio is absolutely beautiful and they truly are artists. But more than that, they are great people! Brielle is more than amazing to work with! She goes above & beyond during the session, even brought me coffee to our morning session, and she has the personality that just makes you smile!" 

"She goes above & beyond during the session"

Jessica Marro

"We sign up for their mini sessions whenever we're available because they are THAT good. The edited photos we receive remind me why it's so important to document and capture your life & family. We both have genuine smiles and laughs throughout each session and everything looks so beautiful and natural because of how much fun we have. I cannot wait for them to capture our growing family in the future :)"

"Booking sessions with Jacob and Brielle is always the best experience"

Samantha Randall

"How do I give Jacob and Brielle more than 5 stars?! - as photographers and people! They are the absolute best! I love how passionate they are about their work, they are very professional and extremely accommodating! I have a two year old daughter that has only been around them a handful of times but they make her feel so comfortable in front of the camera! I almost cry every time they send back a gallery because I love it so much, I can't recommend them enough! "

"You won't be disappointed trusting these two with your precious moments!"

Victoria Buchanan

"My husband is very shy & typically doesn't interact during the photo shoots I force him into, but with Brielle he opened up and actually had a FUN time! They also have a picture turn around time that shows just how dedicated they are to their work. I could brag about Jacob & Brielle Photography all day!"

"I could brag about Jacob & Brielle Photography all day!"

Justina Wallen

"Brielle & Jacob are such a dream to work with! They are the best photographer duo you could ask for from the planning all the way done to the editing details! Definitely look forward to working with them again one day!"

"They are the best photographer duo you could ask for"

Our journey to parenthood has been one of highs and lows, vulnerable moments that made us who we are and shaped our lives. We lost our first child in 2020—a devastating loss—but since then we have found incredible joy as our family has grown.

After going through a major loss, you come to realize the importance of treasuring those around you. We believe that having pictures taken with family members is an important way to celebrate what we have and cherish our bonds—​and never take them for granted.

We believe that every family is unique, and we want to showcase your family’s personalities. We are not just photographers; we are storytellers, who can capture the essence of your family through candid shots or by directing you in front of the camera. Whether you want professional portraits or a fun, casual photo shoot with props, we will make sure that each session is tailored to fit your needs.
