Planning your Wedding or Elopement in Virginia?

I've had the honor of documenting love stories at some of the most beautiful locations throughout Virginia, and beyond- from wineries, museums, parks, and private estates to historic churches, lush gardens, mountain side cliffs, and backyards covered in layers of twinkling lights.

The location is never the same, but my focus always remains on your unique love story, as it unfolds second by second on one of the biggest days of your life.

LUEM is for couples that cherish family, joy, and laughter. Especially, for those that believe true love, and romance still exist.

Your love story deserves the best care, from first kiss to last dance- are you ready for chapter two?

Welcome friends, my name is Jonlaya.

Hello! I'd like to welcome you to my little piece of the World Wide Web. I invite you to look around, and stay a while- grab your favorite drink, while you are at it.

I'll take a bubble tea!

“"We hired Jonlaya to be the photographer for our small wedding and we are so thrilled with her work. She was able to capture the entire day better than we had imagined- all while perfectly honoring some specific requests we had, and adding her own creative flare. She was such a joy to work with and the final collection of her pictures was beautiful and captured everything. We HIGHLY recommend her!"”
