Justin and Ashley

Justin + Ashley + VENeman = JAVEN

JAVEN is us ... put together. :)

We’re Justin and Ashley Veneman. We met in college through a photo class, believe it or not. Justin was one of the student's driving to a photojournalism conference, and Ashley needed a ride. A lot of time has passed since that drive ... but 3 continents, a lot of travel, and a lot of life later, we're thankful everyday for it.

We were married in 2008 and fell in love with weddings through the process of building our own. Our background is photojournalism, so storytelling is incredibly important in our photography. We believe in the story a single image can tell, and also in the importance of all images put together as a whole.

A little about us ... we have two children, who are our littlest loves and they make each day full and beautiful. We love Jesus. All we are and have is from and through Him! We love our city. Memphis is an amazing place with some pretty extraordinary people and organizations that make the world a better place. Justin works as a photographer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on weekdays, while Ashley runs JAVEN from our home.

We are so grateful that God has put us in a place where we are around some of the most incredible stories and families. We'd love to get to know you and hear about your big day, your family, and all of those life events you want captured. It's our privilege to be a part of telling your story.

Let us know how we can help!
