HELLO...

WE ARE JESSICA & ERIC SIMONTON

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU!

This dream team is 100% family love to the core! When you hire us to photograph your wedding day, you get not just one, but two photographers with entirely different missions.

This husband and wife photography team lets their own passionate love guide them in capturing all your special moments. From the engagement to saying “I do,” we are wholly committed to recording every moment from two unique perspectives. Jump on over to Instagram to see highlights of our past weddings >>

You know how people tell you that you’ll never start a lasting relationship in a bar? Ya right! Jess and Eric fell in love at first sight in a dusty old bar, were engaged 10 months later, and married within a year!

Our vows were and still are the most important part of our marriage. And we work really hard to lead our couples by example. We never miss a date night. We have marriage mentors. We take a trip every 6 months, just the 2 of us. And we work every day to overcome that battle between technology distractions and quality time together. Togetherness wins every time!

When we got married 6 years ago, we had a very small budget and opted to skip on professional photography. What a HUGE mistake! If we could do it all over, we’d downsize the guest list and skip the fancy venue to budget for a photographer. Pictures of your special day really are priceless!

We are so thankful for our amazing JS couples who’ve named us the 2017 Best Billings Portrait Photographer!

My wedding mission is to capture those unplanned, candid moments that make your wedding day so special. During your wedding, I’ll be busy chasing down all those natural and playful poses that highlight you and your guests’ unique personalities.

As an introvert and experienced photographer, I’m especially good at reading a room and facial expressions. I stay one step ahead, always reading cues to be in the right place at the right time to shoot those special moments as they’re happening.

When Eric and I got married 6 years ago, I was full of love and happiness only to have reality slap me in the face. I was laid off from my job my very first day back from our Cancun honeymoon! I managed to land a new job working at a bank, but quickly realized my heart just wasn’t in it anymore. Day after day all I could think about was photography. My amazing hubby encouraged me to chase that dream which lead to my transition to full time photographer in 2015.

I base my personal success on the quality of my relationships and a healthy work/life balance. When I started out, I took on a lot of weddings and quickly realized I just didn’t have the time I wanted to dedicate to each couple. We decided to pull back and book fewer weddings, promising more quality time for every single couple.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband, Eric, and doing crossfit.

On your big day, it’s my goal to capture all those traditional editorial and vogue poses. I’ll organize your wedding party, family, and friends for posed group shots that you can frame, gift, and look back on every day for the rest of your lives.

My quirky wife, Jess, and I work together shooting both the same images from different perspectives, and split up to cover more ground as the party gets started. Weddings are an exciting time for family and friends to come together, and it might be the only time you’ll see all those loving people in the same place. It’s my mission to memorialize all those moments of your extended family and friends as they come together for your wedding day.

When I’m not behind the camera, I’m training in the gym or preparing for a fight in my side life as a professional boxer. I'm also a student at Sherman College of Chiropractic right here in Spartanburg.

I was so excited when Jess and Eric approached me to help them edit their amazing wedding photos! Being married to Jess’ brother, Chris, and living a few states away could render us too far apart to remain close. But thanks to our shared passion for love, we’re closer than ever!

As your last guests trickle out the door and you turn in for your first night with your sweetie, I’m already looking through the pictures of your wedding day. Working from home, I’m able to edit and polish your pictures to perfection in a fraction of the time of other photographers.

My favorite part of the job is sharing that first sneak peek with you in social media. I also make sure you get all 400 of your wedding photos within 4-6 weeks.

Outside of editing wedding pictures, I live a simple, southern-style life of porch sitting, crafting and quality time with my amazing hubby.
