SCROLL FOR MORE
I'm Shemary Jones – your West Virginia (and beyond) Wedding and Portrait Photographer specializes in capturing authentic love in couples and families.
Intentional yet genuine and sometimes candid – that's how I'll describe my craft. I'm passionate about what I do, and it feels like I'm not working whenever I'm with my camera. I enjoy building Ebenezer with it.
"In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success."
- Proverbs 3:6
Photographs are like Ebenezer, in digital or printed form. They help you remember the good; See the light when life seems dark and gloomy. They help you glance back to see how far you've come in your journey (as an individual, as lovers, as a mom, as parents, as a family). They serve something more valuable than just what we see in the actual photos. *My own experiences can testify to this.*
"Let all that you do be done in love."
The desire to capture photos "with a purpose and for a purpose" started what I first named iCaptureGenuine Photography back in 2018, now Shem Jones Photography.
Going full-time as a photographer is a big step of faith for me. I am doing it afraid, and it's okay. I can be confident and fearful at the same time. Acknowledging my fears makes me not depend on my strength and ability but to lean on Someone greater than me. ALL THE TIME.
- 1 Corinthians 16:14
