Behind the Lens

Jacob Kurtz - Photographer

Me being goofy and my fiance being gorgeous as always. :)

As the son of a photographer, I have always had a camera in my hand. Though I pursued a career in the film industry, photography has always been a passion of mine, especially since moving to Virginia in 2011. With Virginia’s beautiful landscapes and unique architecture, it’s no wonder it’s the state for lovers! Combine that with happy people and exciting events and you’ll have fun, spontaneous moments captured for a lifetime.

I would say I have a unique photo-journalistic style. Though I often use natural light, I believe in using lighting and other tools of my trade to achieve beautiful photographs. Also with a background in cinema, I love to re-create those timeless looks of Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant for those daring enough to try. :)

For weddings, I enjoy shooting couples that are passionate, fun-loving, laid back and don’t mind my goofy sense of humor. I am a nerd who loves Dr Who, won my fiance over with my mad cooking skills and simply loves his profession.

So if you are looking for a photographer that will capture the funniest moments to the most intimate in a natural way, please contact me to set up a meeting.

Thank you!
