Welcome to J&A Weddings! We are State College PA wedding photographers Joel and Andrea Knepper – a husband and wife team who specialize in creative and unique wedding photography. With over 10 years of experience photographing weddings together, you can trust that we will get the job done for you, not only artfully, but professionally. Our goal is to create an outstanding experience for you from start to finish, working with you and guiding you the whole way.

“Joel and Andrea are the perfect team. They shot both our engagement session and wedding day, and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience and results. They are friendly and easy to work with, and they work so fluidly with one another.

They took a genuine interest in what we were looking for in our overall photography scheme, and they made it all come to life for us. Taking coloration and style into careful consideration is what they do so amazingly… We can’t imagine having worked with anyone else but Joel and Andrea. They put meaning to the phrase, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.’

Thank you both for capturing our memories so beautifully and artfully.”

“What can we say, but bravo! Your work has exceeded our every expectation. As we look through the photos you have taken of that night, a few words come to mind; amazing, artful, inspired, and complete are just some of them. When we first saw the slide show we cried, and from the reports of many family and friends, we are not the only ones. The images capture the day, the moment, and the feeling of the entire experience.

Beyond exquisite photographs; the professionalism, patience, and unobtrusive nature in which they were taken is a further testament to the quality of service that you both provide. Thank you for being such a huge part of our day. We hope to stay in contact with you because we truly enjoy your company and your quality of work is simply a reflection of your quality of character.”

Cara & Sam

“Yesterday was a most special day for me and my family – because of you!  I have never experienced such joy in viewing photographs as I did last night.  What you two captured, and the manner in which you captured it, made all of us feel as we were reliving the special moments of the weekend all over again.

Your ability to master composition, capture candid moments that represent substantial meaning and represent creative expression in so many of your images is most impressive and appreciated.

I am so grateful you two were the professional photographers we were privileged to have record this special event.  Thank you very much for making us feel so happy!”
