About J. Bell Photography

At J. Bell Photography, we specialize in creating exceptional and timeless portraits. It is my intention to create images that capture the charm and personalities of couples, children, and families in a natural manner. I am passionate about creating a memorable photographic experience for every client that grants us an invitation to document the most important people and times in their lives. Each session is carefully crafted to suit the needs and desires of each one of our clients. Our goal is to provide you with photographs that will adorn your walls forever and to see that you have fun in the process.

We are boutique wedding photographers, limiting our client numbers to focus intently on each couple before, during, and after their big day. We are a husband and wife team that love weddings and the relationships that they celebrate. Each wedding day is a huge highlight in our year and we work hard with everyone involved to plan and carefully create the perfect strategy for capturing every precious moment. We have been voted the best wedding photographer in Austin by by KVUE/ABC as well as The Knot and are grateful to all of our fans for that honor.

Please contact us for our all inclusive rates.

Photography is more prevalent than any time in history and along with that rise in visibility and mediums comes a throng of new professionals with their own style. We pride ourselves on our classic style and actively work to avoid intrusion of fads and popular tricks that will date the photos in your collection. While some new ideas have a permanent place, anyone who has seen a black and white image with only the eyes colored blue in the last few years knows the reaction that we aim to forever avoid.

Thank you for selecting J. Bell as your personal family photographer!

About J.

My name is J. (it doesn’t stand for anything) and I am a professional portrait artist. My first camera was a Canon AE-1 that my old man passed down to me in middle school. We grew a lot together through the years and it’s made its way through a few replacement parts and still sits on my desk, full of film today. It has been at my side for a lot of my life’s most important moments and now I want to be there for yours.

My passion for transforming my photography into a family’s cherished works of art continues to grow after over a decade of professional experience. I am incredibly fortunate to enjoy such a fulfilling and wonderful career in Austin. I remain lifelong friends with many of my clients and am allowed the privilege of photographing many of them throughout the early years of their family and watching them grow. Thank you so very much to all who have blessed me with the honor of sharing their special moments!
