Kids at Weddings

Keeping your kids entertained at weddings... 

Advice from Omaha wedding photographers (and moms) .


Last weekend we photographed an amazing brunch wedding in Omaha!  While mostly unique, this wedding was a fairly traditional ritual union, dawned with a ring bear and two flower girls. These kiddos were SO well behaved, polite, and adorable to boot. What we LOVED is when they showed up to the brunch reception with Kodak disposable cameras! Just the three of them...little, mighty, and ready to snag some shots.  It was so fun watching them and it kept them busy and engaged in a great way with the rest of the guests. They felt creative and important when the "elders" asked them to take a picture. It was fantastic.  We'd sure love to see their perspective, because it was adorable from ours, without a doubt.


Do you want to keep your "little" attendants occupied with fun at your reception? Give them a couple disposables and send them on a photo hunt! Have them find things like: a man with a mustache, a woman in a blue dress, a kid who's eaten their whole plate of food, grandma on the dance floor...keep them busy and having a good time! 

Meet Janine + McKenzie

Omaha's Best Wedding Photographers

Let's see how Omaha's Best Photogaphers are kicking of 2016 wedding season!



Meet Janine! To say she is excited for Wedding Season 2016 is an understatement.

Her shameless pre-wedding car ride "warm up jam" this year is My House by Flo Rida. Her goal this year is to win the "national championships" of wedding photography. We treat every wedding like a national championship, so this shouldn't be a problem.



Meet McKenzie! She's jonesin' to slay Wedding Season 2016!

Her shameless pre-wedding car ride "warm up jam" is The Sound by The 1975.  Her goal this season is to also win the "national championship" of weddings with Janine and kick ass in every way possible. And perfect her dance moves.

WPJA Awards | Wedding Photojournalism Contest

Janine Cooper of JM Studios wins 3 WPJA awards

2015 Q4 Photography Contest Wedding Photojournalism Contest

We were elated to find that Janine won some awards in the last WPJA contest. This is one of the highest honors for a documentary wedding shooter as this particular contest requires us to keep to authentic newspaper-style editing, without all the fancy things you can do with today's technology. It's pure moments. The judges remarked that this contest was "a killer competition to judge! Every category was rich with storytelling images . . . it was enjoyably difficult" We are so thankful for trusting clients that let us get the good stuff!

Please check out the WPJA's website for all of the contest results here!
