international wedding + event photographer + educator
Before we get into my story, let’s talk about why you’re here. You’re engaged to be married and you’re trying to determine who you’ll trust to document your wedding day. This is a tough one. How much is too much to spend? Will they get the shots we want? Will our personalities vibe well? All valid concerns.
My personal success as an international photographer, my easygoing personality and my time as an educator hosting workshops all contribute to my ability to quickly connect with clients in a unique way and bring out the best in them every single time. If you’re someone who loves to have fun, is carefree and wants nothing more than to enjoy a good laugh with the ones you love on your wedding day while your photographer takes care of everything else, we’re probably going to be a great fit for each other.
I look forward to shooting your wedding!
MEET JERRELL TRULOVE
YES! My last name really is Trulove and I’m an international wedding and event photographer based in Austin, TX. I truly believe I was born to create something awesome for others to enjoy. Marriage is VERY important and capturing your wedding day is a way for me to thank God for the talents he’s given me while at the same time helping to celebrating what he’s given you. It’s a win-win.
If you are looking for a photographer that….
you can trust with the most important moments of your day
will be the most stylish vendor in the room
can make you feel comfortable in front of the camera
you can laugh and have fun with on your wedding day
You’d be crazy to hire anyone else but me.
I would describe myself as laid back, positive, slightly goofy, and always thinking the highest thought. What this means for you is that I’m able to break down the barrier between photographer and client and create an environment that allows you to feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. I want you to shine!
When I’m not in front of the camera I’m reading a book on self development, going on rock adventures with my daughter, tearing up the streets of ATX on a bird scooter or relaxing with a craft beer.
Carrying on The Trulove Legacy
When my father was younger he used to play live music and sing at weddings around the state of California where he lived at the time. As I think about the passion and emotion my father would express while he would sing and play, I feel like I bring that same level of dedication when I'm behind the lens. For me it goes deeper than just pressing the shutter button. I know my father is proudly looking down on me as I bring passion, creativity and expression to every wedding just like he used to. Plus, check out the floral ties!
This isn't just photography. This is legacy.

What others are saying
“I cannot say ENOUGH amazing things about Jerrell. We do annual vow renewals in every state and are already planning on flying him all around the country to photograph for us because he is THAT good. First of all, he was early waiting for us, then he went above and beyond helping me carry things to the venue, AND caught some amazing kodak moments I didn't even imagine would be ones that were the most memorable. His style is just phenomenal: the final photos were artistic, classy, and elegant. Throughout every moment of our portraits and the renewal Jerrell put us at ease, capturing the essence of who we are as a couple, and truly made us have SO MUCH fun. I gave him a shot list of some angles we wanted and he nailed them to a T! I will remember every session for years to come and can't wait to hire him again next year.” - Rachel H.
The main thing you should be aware of is that when you trust me to photograph your wedding, you’re trusting a courteous, professional, stylish, always happy photographer completely focused on making sure you experience zero stress on your wedding day. If that’s what you’ve been looking for, I’d say look no further. I can’t wait to hear from you.
