Wedding - Kanika & Sherman

The temperature was perfect, the sky was clear and the sun was shining - Kanika and Sherman certainly had a beautiful wedding day! Music played all day, beginning at Kanika's mom's house where all of the bridesmaids were getting ready, onto the ceremony and into the night at the reception. Their reception was held at the gorgeous Willard Hotel in Washington, DC. Excitement and happiness were felt by all - what a wonderful day!

Congratulations Kanika & Sherman!

Late-Night Visitor

Quite often Jas and I are burning the midnight oil (sometimes after a 3-hour, post-kid-bedtime nap) and many nights, between 12 and 1am we get a visit from a cute little sleepy blanket-wrapped man. There is nothing better to break up your work-night than a hug and snuggle from this little man... 

Life is good...

 p.s. - he's not as melancholy or serious as he appears...he's quite the actor :)



Wedding - Rhonda & Toma

Rhonda and Toma: cliche or not, they are both such amazingly beautiful people, inside and out, and their ceremony and reception were equally as beautiful. Their wedding ceremony took place at the Queen of All Saints church in Brooklyn, New York. Rhonda's dress was elegant and classy, her bridesmaids looked gorgeous in eggplant and Toma looked perfectly handsome! Their reception was held at the gorgeous Crest Hollow Country Club, also in New York. According to Jason and Lantz it was "the most fun reception ever" :) Toma is Nigerian, so for the last part of the reception Rhonda and Toma changed into traditional Nigerian garb - SO gorgeous! 

A beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple! Congratulations Rhonda & Toma!

Senior Portraits - Brianna

Brianna is a senior at Patterson Mill High School - with gorgeous eyes, gorgeous hair and a big bright smile, it is no wonder her pictures look amazing!!

Meet Brianna:



Hello 2011!

The beginning of a new year is always exciting! It's a chance to reflect, reset, refresh, set new goals, adjust old ones and then continue on with your new norm :)

2010 was an amazing year for us, both personally and professionally.

Personally, our first-born baby boy started Kindergarten and loves it, our baby-girl continued into her 2nd year of pre-school and is doing great and our littlest little man continued to grow and learn and make us laugh every day. 2010 was a year full of fun with friends, family parties, day-trips, vacations, holidays and lazy days and everything in between. We are so grateful and thankful and blessed to have had such a wonderful year, and are looking forward to all the new fun 2011 is going to bring!

Thankfully, 2010 was also a fantastic year for J. Thomas Photography! We photographed some amazingly beautiful weddings with the most kind, loving and enthusiastic brides and grooms. Our senior season could not have gone any better - we got to meet such a great group of seniors (and parents!) - and this year we had seniors from all of the area high schools - a lot of fun! We also met some wonderful families and little ones this year! 

With such a busy year, we enlisted the help of some part-time employees, and we would not have had such a successful year without them - thank you Samantha, Estelle, Topher, Lantz, Kyle, Jackie, Jeny and Jake!! You guys are SO awesome and we are looking forward to working with you again this year!

So, goodbye 2010, hello 2011! :)

There are some senior sessions posted below (we are playing a little catch-up), and although they don't have introductions, it doesn't mean we love them any less (again, playing catch-up)! We aren't able to post every senior or every family we photograph, but we love everybody the same :) 

There is a lot in store for J. Thomas Photography this year and we are very excited to share it all with you! Stay tuned!!

Much Love and Thanks!

-Missy and Jason
