Introduction: I have been photographing weddings and events in Texas and Europe for 10 years. My photos are regularly featured on popular blogs and in local magazines. I deliver RAW and high resolution edited Jpeg Images and have a really quick turn time for special events and weddings. I love being able to help others feel like they were at the event. I enjoy knowing that my clients will love their photos and be taken right back to that special occasion every time they look at these photos. I describe my style as complete. I take romantic and dramatic images, candid and posed. A wedding day has a lot going on and a wedding photographer is one of the most versatile types of photographers. You need to be able to capture a bride and groom’s emotions, all of the little details, stunning landscapes, and the excitement of the reception!

Wedding and Event Photography

Working with JD was an Incredible experience! He was beyond professional. He kept in constant contact for the month long wait up the the engagement. He hid safely from view so I can make the moment special and he caught it with Incredible photographs. He then took his time and walked us around different locations to make sure we got the perfect photographs and lighting. He will be hired for our wedding without a doubt! Highly recommend using document the event for any needs

Jerry was very professional!! He scouted the area prior to the photoshoot and had everything planned perfectly, so that we were able to get the most optimal shots for our engagement photos. He knows the area very well and he perfectly timed everything based off the sunset (which is exactly what we wanted). From the few pictures we received as sneak peek, we were blown away and excited to see the full portfolio of our pictures. I highly recommend him as you will be in great and trustworthy hands.

As much as we were excited about our wedding, we were also nervous about finding the right photographer for us. And adding to this we were getting married in a foreign country. It was by chance we met Jerry online and he happily agreed to travel Croatia to photograph our small wedding. And that was the best choice we could have made, with Jerry we made all our arrangements we made online, he was there when he said he would be, communicated with us regularly, and was a delight to have around. We both loathe posed photos, and my (now) husband is not comfortable in front of the camera. One of my biggest fears was that when I walked down the aisle he wouldn’t be smiling. Jerry managed to capture him throughout the day in such an unobtrusive way, and always with a smile on his face. His unique style captured the story and emotion of our wedding day, and so many of our guests commented on his professional attitude, and how he just blended in. The photos we received were absolutely perfect, capturing our day in such a thoughtful & meaningful way.

Jerry photographed my daughter's wedding as well as several family sessions, including graduation shots. He makes the sessions fun and is always flexible to new ideas. He did a terrific job and the photos were priceless. We highly recommend Jerry Blackwell for all of your photography needs!!

I have used Jerry as a photographer for both personal and professional purposes. He is outstanding! I feel very uncomfortable being in front of a camera, but Jerry has a way of making you feel like you were made to be photographed. Not only do you get AMAZING shots, but you feel just as amazing leaving the shoot. 5 stars isn't enough. I'd recommend Document the Event to absolutely anyone.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing Includes all raw file and print copyrights.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The process beings with a consultation. I'll video chat with a client and discuss the details fo their wedding and exactly what they are looking for in a photographer. Once I have a full understanding of the clients needs and we agree it's a great fit for their wedding, I'll send over a contract and questionnaire.

    I have been photographing weddings and events full time for 15 years. I also Instruct several student photographers.
