Serving Virginia & Beyond

Staunton wedding photographer

I’m Jo Mahaney, Staunton and Augusta County wedding photographer for the sentimental sweethearts. I have an ability to pull shy people [read: your camera shy groom] out of their shells and create timeless and emotional portraits of couples saying “yes!” to forever together. I am there to preserve your wedding day as your bonus bridesmaid. You want your photographer to blend into the background during important moments, letting the story unfold, while still capturing the day.

What makes me different from other staunton photographers?

Finding your wedding vendors should feel like finding your dream team. They should be supportive, informative, and encouraging, in addition to being great at their profession. It's a special honor to be chosen to photograph each couple's union, and it's not lost on me what great trust these brides and grooms have in my ability to handle documenting their wedding day with care. While wedding photography is a job to some, to me it is a life calling. There are wedding vendors who do their jobs, and there are wedding vendors who truly serve their clients. As your wedding photographer, I’ll start by giving you resources for mapping out the perfect stress-free timeline, finding other amazing vendors to support your vision, and planning an engagement session that will get you warmed up and ready for the camera on your wedding day. No two wedding days are the same, and I can't wait to hear about yours!
