Welcome to Jovian Photography. Our mission is simple – capture breath taking photos with every shot. Whether we’re shooting candid photos of guests interacting at a wedding or posing you for a portrait, we ensure the most important part of the photograph is captured in an interesting manner. Experimentation is very important to us – always trying to use a new approach along with classic approaches to a photograph allow us to advance every session or event into the realm of unique. The essence of the event is the driving factor to our photographic ideology. An engagement session focuses on the couple, whereas a charity event focuses on the charitable goal. When we meet before the session or event, the first thing we need to know is what the essence of the photography requires. Whether a matrimonial union between two people or the personality of a high school senior, this is the substance of what a photographer is photographing. Without this substance, a photograph is only a picture. Chris Hoffman, Owner of Jovian Photography Chris is our primary photographer and editor. He has over 12 years of experience with editing photos, and 3 years taking his own professional photos. He also tends to refer to himself in the third person while editing our website. “I look at every new client as a new challenge. I want to give them the best photographs they’ve seen of themselves. I love doing weddings for the simple fact that it is a daunting challenge – there is a physical requirement for running around with limited time, and a goal of capturing images that will define the wedding for a lifetime. Portraits are a very interesting challenge – I have a personality to capture, not a picture of their face. I became interested in photography over ten years ago, while studying architecture. At that time, I honed my skills in image editing and design in architecture. The skills I retain from my architectural career tie in heavily with photography – my mantra was that an architect should always improve upon what occurs in a space. With photography, a photographer should always amplify the best of what they are photographing. I compare what I am doing to that of what a trained monkey could do – am I using my mind to capture what I am expressing, or am I simply pressing a button?” ~Chris Hoffman Read less

Has terrible customer service, we could not get ahold of him to save our lives the last 3 monthes before the wedding. He also did not go to our rehersal dinner as he was supposed to per the contract. He was late showing up to photograph the bride and bridesmaids getting ready. We were promised our photos 3-5 weeks after the wedding and at now the two month mark still have not recieved them, he also has not returned phone calls or emails inquiring about when they might be done. Do not use this company, spend a little extra for a photographer that will make your wedding as stress free and fun as possible. We are not the only ones to have this problem. We are in contact with four other couples having the same issue!

This business is a SCAM!!! Do not use!!! The photographer's name is Chris Hoffman, he was really nice to us when we met, he took our pictures and we never heard from him again! He never answers the phone or replies to you when you try to contact him through his website. Two months have passed since he took our pictures and we are giving up on trying to reach him. It has been a big mistake, and a headache to deal with this.
