Hello, I’m Joshua


I create elegant & authentic wedding heirlooms for timeless couples.

Most couples worry that they won’t look good in front of the camera or that their wedding images will be filled with fake, forced poses. Your love is beautiful, and your wedding memories should be, too. My photography style is different: I authentically capture the most beautiful moments of your love story through intentional, thoughtful artistry. So, let’s leave those awkward poses in the 90s, where they belong.

Let’s create something special. Let’s make room for genuine laughter and happy tears as we create real moments and memories and celebrate your love story through photographs.

Meet Joshua

I believe that marriages are forever, that memories are more important than likes, and the most important part of every wedding day is the partnership it launches. Heirloom photographs are among the few things that remain with you after your celebration; together, we will create elegant and authentic images that will serve as anchors and reminders of the timeless commitment you make to each other.

“Josh was one of the best things about our wedding day and the whole process leading up to it.”


Wedding photography to celebrate your connection and tell your story.

You might be a JHP bride and groom if you have a love for fine art aesthetics, but are looking for a wedding photographer whose work and process go beyond pretty photographs. For me, a beautiful image is made up of more than just elegant posing, great lighting, and a pleasing background – my images are intentionally authentic, and I work throughout your wedding day to candidly preserve your most joyful moments as they naturally unfold.

I’ve told over 50 love stories


As a Chicagoland resident for over 10 years, I know the city like an old friend, and what’s not to love? Chicago has some of the absolute best sights, venues, and food. I think Chicago is by far the best place to be planning your wedding. I love all of the venues and unique photo locations the metro area has to offer, but I wanted to highlight just a few of my favorites: Navy Pier, the Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk, and the Lehmann Mansion.
