Jack Radgowski

1507 Walnut Hollow Road, Lynchburg, VA, 24503 United States


A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Jack Radgowski brings passion, fun, and professionalism to every photo assignment. He is a national and international award-winning photographer with more than 30 years of experience.  

As a former photojournalist whose work has appeared in National Geographic and major magazines and newspapers across the country, he has the technical skills and the artistic talent that makes his work stand out from many other wedding photographers. He loves to capture the story of the wedding as it unfolds during the day. He arrives early to document the bride and groom getting ready…he's unobtrusive during the ceremony… he has a knack for making everyone smile and brings spontaneity to the standard group shots. His portraits tend to be classically lit like the master’s paintings… bridal shots, the reception, and the party photographs are fun. If you have any special requests, he's happy to accommodate, otherwise you’re in good hands and don’t have to worry about a thing.

~~Jack’s artistic vision and guidance helped us to take some of the most beautiful and intimate photos of our special day. He captured a story, not just a bunch of still, posed images. When I look through my wedding photos, I always smile and remember the best moments from that day.

~~If I could give Jack Radgowski (JR Wedding Photography) more than 5 stars I would!! He was such a pleasure to work with. You cannot get better customer service!! Jack took my bridal pictures and was our wedding photographer. All the pictures turned out GREAT!!!! Two words... HIRE HIM!!!

~~Jack is absolutely amazing! My husband and I were blessed with the good luck of being contacted by Jack informing us we had won a free engagement session with him after attending a bridal showcase. Jack spent hours taking our engagement pictures out of the generosity of his heart and we fell in love with his work. I have taken a few photography classes in the past and after our engagement session I knew Jack had pure talent, an eye for unique and memorable pictures, and a passion for capturing the moment. That is why we hired him for our wedding. He didn't just take the staged pictures but he also took great action shots of us dancing throughout the night. I relive our wedding day every time I look at one of his pictures. The best decision we made for the wedding was hiring Jack. Thank you so much Jack! I hope we keep in touch.

P.S. We had so much fun working with you!

~~Jack was absolutely amazing to work with!! He got a great combination of both posed and candid shots, and all of the photos were stunning!! I couldn't be more happy with our wedding photos!! I HIGHLY recommend him!!

~~My husband and I got married about two weeks ago and were lucky enough to have Jack shoot it! He showed up early & stayed late to get as many pictures as possible! You can tell this is his passion by all of the enthusiasm he puts into capturing each shot! If you need a photographer to keep up with a wild and rowdy crowd i definitely recommend him! He jumped right in and captured all the fun! Truly an amazing job & i couldn't have asked for a better photographer! I love every single picture he took!

~~We (my partner and I) enjoyed working with Jack for our engagement photos and look forward to the wedding. My partner is not the most comfortable in front of the camera (ok, neither am I), but Jack did his best to make us laugh and keep the focus on the experience- all while making tweaks to get the best shot. He's full of suggestions of where to go to take pictures while being very open to our ideas. Even when our ideas turned out to not be the best, he worked with us to find the right angles and the right shot. Jack knows his camera and he knows how to get the best shots- planned and candid. Jack is no stranger to the area or to photography- with JR Photography you will get an energetic, honest photographer who will do all he can to make sure you have fun while taking beautiful pictures for you to cherish.

~~Jack is the BEST photographer ever. We have already talked to him about photographing my younger daughter's upcoming wedding. I wouldn't have anyone else. He was so genuine and easy to work with -10 star work and 20 star personality... He is amazing..

~~Perfect photographer, perfect day! I would hire Jack again and again. He was so easy to work with from day one. Since i live out of the area we never got to meet beforehand but he was so responsive with emails and spent plenty of time on the phone with me when I called - I felt like I knew him already! He was so dedicated to getting great shots on our wedding day, he was even crawling down in the woods/river to shoot! My husband worried about a photographer being "intrusive" during the wedding but with Jack it felt more like a friend hanging around with us. We loved him and enjoyed working with him so much.

~~The photographer was very helpful and professional. He was open to our posing ideas and helped with contributing his own suggestions for great pictures. He was very adaptable and accommodating for various locations that were unpredictable and challenging.

~~Jack is a great wedding photographer. He is professional, friendly, funny, and takes fantastic pictures. We love looking at the pictures he took of our wedding. There are tons of them and so many good ones. I don’t know how he managed to be everywhere at once but he captured so many moments from that night that we didn't even know happened. Thanks Jack!

~~Our guests still rave this day about how friendly and personable Jack was. He was able to not only take pictures of all the important moments for my wife and I, he spent a great deal of time capturing our guests enjoying the wedding. So wonderful at putting us and our guests at ease! We are not good at staged photos but he helped to make us comfortable and took wonderful pictures of us, our family, and all of our guests!
~~Beautiful Memories Captured. Jack was wonderful to work with and took gorgeous pictures. He made sure to capture each of our guests as they walked around the farm, danced, and laughed. He also worked with my husband and I to make sure we had nice ones of us too. Neither of us likes having our picture taken so he had his work cut out for him. He was patient and creative - ensuring that we got some awesome couple pictures.

~~We got married 5 years ago and JR Photography did everything from our rehearsal dinner, pre-wedding preparations, ceremony, portraits and reception photos. Jack has an uncanny way of being in multiple places at once to capture every moment of your day. We were unsure of what kind of pictures to take, which is NO problem - he takes the lead and suggests what end up being some of your favorites. He has a great eye for a great picture and keeps everyone laughing and at ease during what can seem to take forever :)
