JN Photograph’s holiday sale is nearly upon us! Starting November 1st, we’ll be shooting portraits with the 765 Special. If you’re reading this on the mailed out version you’ll see a great coupon to the right of this letter. Go ahead – cut it out and reserve your session at www.jnphotographyva.com or by emailing me at admin@jnphotographyva.com.


The 765 Special includes an hour photography session, a CD of 7 photographs that are retouched and remastered, an 8×10 and 8 wallet prints of the portrait of your choice, and unlimited people, pets and outfit changes. Rush processing and USPS Priority Mail is included so you can receive your photographs for the holidays. All of this is only $65 (including tax)! This special runs from November 1st through December 24th.


JN Photography also has some new business hours. Now we’re taking your portraits Friday-Tuesday. Sundays we’re open after church, but we’ll be glad to visit your church to take those special baptism photographs.

Simply email me your reservation request at admin@jnphotographyva.com.


It’s crazy how God is blessing people through JN Photography. Thanks to your support we’ve not only partnered with the Greater Virginia chapter of Make-A-Wish Foundation, but we’re also supporting important charities and organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Lynchburg Humane Society. Plus, we’re able to donate wedding photography to couples fighting terminal and life threatening illnesses. It puts a smile on our faces knowing that each photo helps so many lives.


The Elon Tornado Album is still in the works and will hopefully be finished up around March 2019. All JNP customers will receive a discounted price and all profits will go towards God’s Pit Crew. Check them out at www.godspitcrew.org.


And without further ado, I’d like to officially announce the winner of the Pre-Grand Opening Event. Congratulations Tara on winning a free mini-session! The prize includes any of our seven mini-session options. The coupon has been emailed to you.


The next event will likely be the 2018 Photograph of the Year. Last year Amy M. and her daughter won a $25 gift card. Will you win this year? Now’s the chance to find out! Your imagination is your only limit. Tell us your idea – how you see the edited photo in your head – and we’ll edit it to your imaginative specifications.

2018 Q3 Newsletter

2018 Q3 Newletter

*Editor’s Note: Our mailed version of the Quarterly Newsletters contains special coupons only available to those on our mailing list. To be added to the mailing list fill out the form on the side.

This Q3 Newsletter has been a long time coming, but I am happy to announce that we have some HUGE things going on at JN Photography. First off, we’ve moved the studio to Campbell County, our baby Caleb was born healthy and strong, and we’re celebrating with our biggest sale ever: Buy One Get One on all new full photography session contracts and media conversions, $200 extra off new wedding package contracts, and a free 5×7 print with every mini session contracted. Sale ends August 31, 2018 so make sure you schedule your next session now to save big.


The next huge thing we’ve done is extended our Mini Session services. These sessions are much shorter than full sessions and start at just $40. The mini-lineup includes Family Portraits, Family Reunions, Maternity, Newborn, Portraits, Senior Pictures, and Parties.


Now the most important part of this newsletter. We’ve been in contact with Make-A-Wish foundation and I am so very happy to announce that we now photograph for Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia! This non-profit entity touches children who are suffering life-threatening illnesses by giving them a wish come true. Say for instance, a boy wants to meet Batman or an NFL team, or a girl wants to be a Disney princess or wants to redesign the pediatric floor at the hospital, Make-A-Wish makes that happen and JN Photography makes it forever.


It’s crazy how God is blessing people through JN Photography. Thanks to your support we’ve not only partnered with the Greater Virginia chapter of Make-A-Wish, but we’re also supporting important charities and organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Lynchburg Humane Society. Plus, we’re able to donate wedding photography to couples fighting terminal and life threatening illnesses. It puts a smile on my face knowing that each photo helps so many lives.


Because God is using JN Photography in such a powerful way, we’ve extended our Referral Program. Now you get $100 off for each person you refer to us (of course they actually have to use us too). That means if you refer just eight people or families to us you can have your wedding photography at little or no cost!


On a side note, we’ve received several hundred photographs of the effects of the Elon Tornado. I was able to meet with my friend Gary who literally sat in his basement as the tornado ripped his house from the foundation. We’re not taking time off working on your photographs, so filtering through the several hundred pictures is taking time, but when we’re finished we’ll compile an album that will be sold for charity.


And without further ado, I’d like to officially announce the winner of the 2017 Photograph of the Year. The award and the $25 JNP Gift Card goes to the family of this beautiful photograph! Congrats Amy!

Happy New Year,

It’s hard to believe, but 2018 is here! Personally it’s the year of threes for us. Big Guy is turning three, I’m hitting the third decade, my wife and I are looking at moving in a bigger hours for the third time, and we’re expecting our third child (hence the need to move into a bigger house with hopefully a bigger studio). So much has happened in 2017 and we’re looking forward to all the weddings, portraits maternities, newborns, family reunions, and commercial works in 2018.

To kick off the new year we’ve launched a redesigned website. It is still www.jnphotographyva.com but it looks and feels completely different. Along with the new website we’ve added some new services. That’s right, we’ve been paying special attention to your requests and have been diligently working to serve you more. We’ve added services for baptism, mitzvahs, baby showers (including the new Ultimate Mommy Package which includes the shower, a maternity session, and a newborn session), a party and celebration package, special portraits for our sports teams and players, and new wedding photography services such as custom frames, engagements, share-pages, additional photographers, bridal sessions, boudoir and bodyscape, photo booths, trash the dress, and more. Plus, our venues have a new look and feel on the website too. Let me know of venues that you think should be listed on JNP’s website and I’ll look into it.

I’m nearly done with the Christmas rush and when those photographs are done then the winner of the 2017 Photograph of the Year will be chosen. The winner will receive a $25 JNP gift voucher good for their next photography session, so stay tuned! Thanks again for all the tags and memories of 2017 and here’s to more this year!

Newsletter: 2017 Q4

The holiday season is right around the corner and we at JN Photography have a lot to share in this final newsletter before 2018. First off, our 2017 Christmas Portrait Special. This year we’re giving away your choice of one 8×10 Print or eight Wallet Size Prints, a CD of seven photographs from a 30 minute photography session – indoors or outdoors. Plus this session includes UNLIMITED people and pets and UNLIMITED outfit changes. All this for only $40.

On October 07, 2017 we participated in the Lynchburg Police Helping Hands Foundation’s first annual Family Fun Day (that’s a mouthful!). This 501(c)3 non-profit organization was founded in 2004 to help officers, deputies, and civilian employees during hard times such as sudden illness, injury, etc. Since its conception, the LPHHF has helped twenty-six Lynchburg Police Department officers, five LPD civilian employees, four retired LPD officers, four dispatchers, one family member of an LPD officer, one Lynchburg Deputy, one Campbell County Deputy, and one State Trooper. With JNP’s help, the LPHHF was able to raise a total of $3,937.55! So thank you to the 120 people who came out to support this important charity.

So now for a bit of sad news. We’ve been planning on being a photographer for the Lynchburg First Church of the Nazarene (LFCN) Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) on November 4, 2017. Unfortunately, I will be undergoing a second sinus surgery that next week so I won’t be able to finish the photos by the charity’s deadline. But Tara with LFCN MOPS has already booked JNP for the spring fundraiser – so stay tuned!

We’re always looking for ways to support local charities and local needs. If you know of a person or charity that could use professional photography then refer them to us. And now is the perfect time to refer your friends to JN Photography too. You can receive $100 off your next photography session by sharing us with your friends!

God bless!

Newsletter: 2017 Q3

A lot has happened over this last quarter and Jess and I are so excited for all of God’s many blessings. The two biggest changes are the name change and the new equipment investment. We’ve changed from JN Media Group to JN Photography. With this change we have a new and better website (www.jnphotographyva.com), new business cards, hats, polos, and email address (admin@jnphotographyva.com). The website is secured so it’s safe for convenient debit/credit card purchases, and clients can use PayPal too. We also have a new PayPal card reader so clients can order without going online. Check out the new website and tell us what you think. On the right-side of the website you can click on the link to easily follow us on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, and our upcoming YouTube channel.

The other huge change is the new equipment, specifically the new Canon 6D Mark II. This upgrade will allow us to do so much more than I can list here in this short newsletter, but the bottom line is your photographs are changing in quality from great to jaw-dropping amazing. With this camera we’ve also made several thousand dollars in equipment upgrades! So you can be the first to get the best photographs in Virginia with the newest technology available.

The JN Photography Wedding Packages now include complimentary engagement sessions. This allows couples to work with us, get to know us, and become more comfortable in front of a camera before the big day! And now we have four wedding packages that range from a budget friendly Silver Package at $462 to the elegant Platinum Package at $3,240.

And when clients invest their wedding photography with JNP we donate 10% of the investment to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. And that’s not all. The Wounded Warrior Project receives 10% of all sporting event photography and the Lynchburg Human Society receives 10% of all pet portraits. With JN Photography your portraits go farther than ever!

We also want to give a special shout out to a client, Emily. She has earned the title of Ms. Wheelchair Virginia, USA 2017! What a huge accomplishment! She plans on competing in the National pageant July 29th and 30th thanks to everybody’s prayers and support.

The last announcement I want to make is about two special events that JN Photography will be attending. The first annual Family Fun Day hosted by the Lynchburg Police Helping Hands Foundation (LPPHF ) is September 09, 2017 from 3:00pm to 11:00pm. The event is at DeVault Vineyards in Concord, Virginia and they’re giving away great door prizes from the vendors – including JN Photography. That’s right, you could win a huge prize from your favorite photography company. We’re donating one gift card that includes a family reunion package, a youth birthday party, senior pictures, AND a family portraiture session – all free to the lucky winner! Want more information about the LPPHF? Visit their website: www.lynchburgpolicehelpinghands.org.

The second event we want to highlight supports the Lynchburg First Church of the Nazarene Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program. MOPS is a fellowship time of encouragement, crafts, and food that supports mothers of young children. The details are still being worked out, but the tentative date is November 4, 2017 and participants will be having their photographs taken by local photographers for a low donation to the MOPS program. For more information about MOPS visit their website: www.mops.org.

Thank you all for making this last year so successful for us. To show our gratitude we now offer our clients a free photography session (up to $100) when their friends choose JN Photography for their portraiture needs. By all means, this is retroactive so go ahead and give us a call to cash in.
