Welcome to J.Kelley Photography! We are the Columbia, Missouri based husband and wife team of Justin & Piper. Justin is the man behind the camera, relying on his photojournalism degree from the University of Missouri, while Piper calls upon her love of crafting and creativity, as well as an eye for detail, to handle all the behind the scenes stuff.
We believe that weddings are a celebration of a very special commitment. We feel honored to be participants in every wedding we photograph. Weddings are a day filled with family, friends and fun and we believe our job is to capture that magic in the most authentic way – unobtrusively, honestly, joyfully.
With Justin’s photojournalism background, our focus is a documentary style of photography. We strive to let your day unfold naturally while we capture the laughter, tears, and passion that you and your guests will be feeling. We understand that each couple is unique in their style, personality, and story and aim to produce images that reflect that individuality.
When we aren’t photographing weddings or running our awesome open air photo booth we enjoy hanging out with our 4-year-old daughter, Lane, and newborn daughter Linden. We’re a Mizzou family and love cheering on the Tigers at various sporting events. Justin is also an avid cyclist and for the past several years has enjoyed participating in BikeMS, raising funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. During Piper’s free time she enjoys cooking delicious meals for her family and friends as well as finding new craft projects to keep her desk cluttered.
