J. Berendt Photography is a husband and wife team located in Richmond, Virginia and are Richmond's premier underwater portrait photographers. ​With over 10 years of combined experience, Joe and Amanda bring a unique set of skills to the table.

Brought into the world of portrait photography through Amanda's modelling career, we have experience working on both sides of the camera. This has provided opportunities for Joe and Amanda to work with some of the best photographers in Virginia and across the US, picking up expert tricks and tips to share with you! 


When we're not exploring the world photographing beautiful locations, we're focusing on highly stylized family, couple and newborn portraits. And of course, we're always up for shooting some mermaids. We love shooting to make our clients happy. Contact us to schedule your next portrait, engagement, wedding or newborn shoot. More information can be found on our Learn More page.
