Jocs Photography Welcome Back 2017

Melissa + Marquel Engagement Sneak Peek

When I found out one of my favorite ladies from college was engaged, I was almost as excited as I was when she and her fiance asked me to photograph their love story! For weeks we went over inspirations and with all of this crazy NC weather, locked down a date. We had everything set for an outdoor shoot when the good Lord decided to throw us a curveball and send a monsoon just hours before we were scheduled to start our session.

Thankfully resilience is one of my most handy personality traits/skills; so my photography crew and I switched into gear and discovered that The Renaissance Hotel North Hills in Raleigh was a beautifully contemporary backdrop for a classy engagement session. With a lot of patience and a few good attitudes, we all headed over to the hotel lobby to begin setting up — the rest is history.

Peace & Photos, Joc

GUESS WHO’S BACK?! + Sparrow Maternity Sneak Peek

It’s been a wild and crazy year for me and I’d taken a 9 month break from photographing. Well now I’m refreshed, balanced, and getting back into the groove!

What better way to bounce back than with a maternity session!?! It just shouts “new beginnings” right?!

I was so honored to continue the love story of college friends Zakiya and Kevin by photographing their little nugget of joy-to-come Ian. It seemed like we had to reschedule a million times but we finally settled on a sunny day at the lake where the photos were just….. well see for yourself!

LaMonique + Benaiah MARRIED! Sneak Peek!

Where do I start?!

When LaMonique and Benaiah announced they were getting married this past New Year’s Eve I cried tears of cotten candy and sunshine! Since they’d been dating, we’ve always played around with the idea of me photographing their special day. With so much creativity in our group of friends I knew I’d play a part somehow!

In addition to being an honorary bridesmaid — I had a blast with my creative partner Rich Griffis capturing this special day. Of all the beachside weddings I’ve had the pleasure of attending, this has to be my favorite so far. After raining literally all week (including the day before and after the wedding) God held out His sunshine for this very special couple!

Enjoy their sneak peek!

52 Colorized Historical Photos That Give Us A New Look At the Past

52 Colorized Historical Photos That Give Us A New Look At the Past

Up until the 1970s, color photography was rare. Thus, our vision of history is so often in black and white only. Rare colorized historical photos are our only chance at seeing what the world really looked like…and, boy, was it spectacular.
