jeff anderton

JEFF was born and raised in Central New York.  His passion for photography was initially fueled by his love of nature and wildlife, which he greatly attributes to his success as a wedding and events photographer.  His photographs of wildlife and the environment of Central New York have been displayed in local and state exhibitions.  In 2009, after spending his first 16 months with a camera strictly in woods and swamps of the eastern US, Jeff was asked to be an assistant for a wedding, by Kelly (co-photographer of AP).  Shooting along side Kelly, Jeff quickly became consumed with the thrill, challenge, and excitement of photographing weddings.  In June 2012, Anderton Photography was founded and hit the ground running.  Along with the success of Anderton Photography weddings, Jeff has an increasing list of commercial clients.  Jeff continues to further establish himself as a wedding and landscape photographer throughout the United States. After a year 'vacation' from weddings spent exploring in Colorado, Jeff currently is continuing his photographic career in the Richmond, Virginia area. Follow all of Jeff's other photographic endeavors at:

KELLY is a life-long resident of Central New York.  She studied engineering at Clemson University, and holds a Certification in Digital Photography.  Kelly is a co-photographer of Anderton Photography.  Kelly founded Just for You Photography, in the summer of 2008 after examining her desires searching for a photographer for her own wedding.  Having been a bride herself, Kelly brings a natural understanding and calmness to brides on their big day.  As well as being able to easily and gracefully connect with brides, it was clear early on that Kelly has a true specialty in capturing details of the wedding day,  Her technical proficiency is also apparent.  In 2012, Kelly joined Jeff in the shared pursuit of their passion, making Anderton Photography what it is today.

LAUREN is the newest member to Anderton Photography.  She joined the team in the 2014 season.  Along with her love for photography, Lauren is a distinguished and highly regarded wedding and event planner for Capital One.  This brings an incredibly unique perspective, as a photographer, to the style in which Lauren documents weddings.  Having picked up a camera only several days before assisting with her first wedding, many of her images are showcased in Anderton Photography's portfolio.  Though her hospitality and event planning education and experience prove to be a true comfort and a quality that brides adore, Lauren is a true photographic creative!  Uncovering her specialties in detail images and one-of-a-kind movement and dance photographs has been an awesome discovery this season!
