We are a husband and wife team, who share an equal love for photography. Nothing is more exciting to us than capturing the memories and magic from the most important day of someone's life.

We take pride in being the artistic cutting edge difference, while maintaining a classic elegance. We strive to capture the emotion and energy in a natural way, just the way you experience it.

We use all Canon equipment, and have a replacement for every piece of equipment. When the moments are this important it is ok to be a little over prepaired!

Enjoy our website... and when you get the chance please visit our blog. Thanks for stopping by! Read less

Jona and Jerry were absolutely wonderful! They do an amazing job and the pictures they take are stunning! Planning a wedding out of town was very stressful and they were so patient and so much help no matter how many questions I had.They were very easy to work with and I don't know what I would have done without them giving us advice along the way. I could not have imagined having anyone else capture our special day and am so thankful we had them as part of our crazy wedding planning journey.

The one really important splurge for me was finding an amazing wedding photographer. I did lots of research online and immediately wanted Forever Photography after browsing through their blog! You can tell how talented they are just by going to their website.
We recently got married in August and my husband and I were very pleased with Jona and Jerry's professionalism and ease to work with. They are naturals at what they do and were very down to earth. We are so excited to get our pictures back! I highly recommend them, you won't be disappointed!

Forever photography is simply AMAZING. All you have to do is look through their stunning photographs on their website and facebook page to realize this. I first saw their work after they photographed one of my best friends' engagements and wedding day and was blown away by their work. Everything about their pictures is perfect and every one really is a work of art. I especially love their natural feel and gorgeous lighting. When we got engaged, I already knew that I wanted Forever Photography to photograph our special day, as I had heard so many wonderful things that my friends had to say about working with them.

Jona and Jerry photographed both our engagement pictures and our wedding day, and we were able to experience first hand how great working with them really is. They are so easy to work with and make you feel so comfortable. We LOVED our engagement pictures and all of our family and friends couldn't stop talking about them as well. On our wedding day, Jona and Jerry were again so wonderful and worked around timing with the sun going down and the bridesmaids and I taking a little longer to get ready. We recommend them to everyone wanting an amazing experience with their photographers and works of art that are gorgeous and capture all of those special moments.

I could say it again, and again, Jerry and Jona with Forever Photography Studio are a very special talent! I was fortunate enough to find them on a "Google search" while planning our destination wedding in Positano, Italy. I immediately became a fan of their website and blog--every single session they do is perfection. I had also looked at many photographers in the Denver area as well as photographers in Italy, but nothing impressed me more than Jerry and Jona's beautiful and artistic style. Their work is simply exquisite. As a husband and wife team, you can see how passionate they are....and that adds so much to the experience as well as their photography. They have a special way about making you comfortable, which in the end creates pictures that are more natural and relaxed. We just recently had our wedding in Positano and had Jerry and Jona alongside us the whole time to capture all the special moments. They photographed a bridal session in stunning Ravello, covered our entire wedding day--including getting ready, the ceremony, additional pictures following the ceremony at Villa Cimbrone in Ravello and our dinner. They also photographed an after session the following day as we took a boat trip to the beautiful Isle of Capri. It was a very eventful three days and they were ready for everything we planned. In the end, they really weren't just photographers to us; they had truly become good friends. That's what happens when you find two special that are extremely talented combined with winning personalities. Every person that has seen our pictures raves about them, and we couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. Jerry and Jona, I am truly thankful to you both for capturing every special moment of our wedding and would recommend you without the slightest bit of hesitation to anyone looking for a skilled photographer, whether it be for a wedding, family session, maternity session, etc. Everything you produce is first class!

Jona and Jerry at Forever Photography were wonderful. My husband and I had quietly admired their work for years, and were thrilled to be able to book them for our wedding. Photography was definitely a splurge for us at our wedding, and we were so happy we decided to "go big" on that front - the quality of the photos we have from our big day is just wonderful. I recently tried to narrow down our proofs to only my absolute favorites, and still ended up with 246.

I can't say enough good things about this pair. We've already received such great feedback about our wedding photos. Jona and Jerry were friendly, timely, responsive, laid-back, and great about getting every detail of our wedding day. I'd absolutely recommend them to friends - I already have.

There is not a single photographer out there like Forever Photography. I have been obsessed with their pictures for awhile now, so of course it was natural for me to choose them to be part of my wedding experience when I became a bride! Jona and Jerry are so easy to get along with and will make anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. We got such beautiful and romantic images that my husband and I will treasure for the rest of our lives! Their pictures are unique and timeless and definitely have that "wow" factor! I LOOOVE Forever Photography so much, and if you're reading this, I know you will too! Contact them and pray they're available for your wedding! :)

We love Forever Photography!!!!! My husband and I had our ceremony in Aruba, a reception in Houston (only 6 days apart) and Forever Photography was there every step of the way for us. We appreciate so much their hard work and dedication to help us capture all the special moments we had on these two unforgettable days. We had never felt so comfortable in front of the cameras until we worked with Forever Photography and that means a lot to us.
We definitely recommend Forever Photography to anybody who's looking for a photographer that can guarantee great work and understand how meaningful and important each event is to their client.

Jona and Jerry were great! The photography was the number one most important thing that I cared about for our wedding, in the sense that everything else lasts a day, but the photos I will cherish for the rest of my life. They turned out better than I could have ever imagined, completely exceeding my expectations. Jona and Jerry were also wonderful to work with, always showed up on time (in fact early), were prepared, and did everything that I asked them to in terms of the photos. I couldn't recommend them enough!
