about me


My name is Josh Blackwell and I am 33 years old.  I have a beautiful wife Pam that I have been married to since 2007 and one son named Brandon who is 2 years old that means the WORLD to me.

I bought my first camera in 2008 to capture some good photos of my brother at his first IRONMAN Triathlon in Lake Placid, New York.  At that point I knew NOTHING about photography other than how to put a nice camera in auto mode and capture the beautiful scenery that upstate New York had to offer.  In 2010, I started taking classes with my sister-in-law, Brittany Peters.  Little did we know at the time we would start a photography business later on that year.  So in October, 2010 J&B Photography was born in Gainesville, GA.  Brittany has always had a creative eye whereas I have always been good with web design and business principles.  While watching her take photos of people I started to take a likening to the idea of one day being a portrait photographer.  Currently, she is one of the best children/newborn photographers that I know of in Hall County GA area.  Last year we both started doing weddings together and that is when I fell in love with taking photographs of people.  At the end of the day you have this feeling of knowing that you just captured a very important moment in their life in which the only way they can go back and look s by the photos that you have taken.  How cool is that?    It was not till last year that I decided to start focusing on my own work as well.

I am a photographer out of the Hall County area which includes Gainesville, Flowery Branch, Oakwood, Lula, and Clermont.  I do sessions around the area as well which is not limited to Dacula, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Suwanee, and Buford.  So if your in need of a photographer and are not in the local area please feel free to ask me about a session because I do travel to surrounding areas.  My specialties include  the following:

Senior Photography | Family Photography | Head Shot Photography | Models

Have fun!
