He formed D.Jones in 2012 to offer an elevated alternative to the traditional wedding video, and collaborates with the rest of the D. Jones family to use light and sound to shape personal stories in unique and compelling ways.

With his strong eye for composition and lighting Steve makes sure that every film passes the eye test. Also, Steve’s laugh is incredible. Seriously. Best. Laugh. Ever.
When Hebah graduated high school her first big purchase was a DSLR camera. That camera would be her best friend. She carried it everywhere she went, hunting for “perfect moments.” In 2011 she was introduced to the world of film-making and has been hooked ever since. After graduating college and making foray into both the photographic and film industries, Hebah began work at D Jones Weddings as a film-maker and the studio manager.
At her core she’s an artist. Starting out as a painter first, Yao fell in love with the creative process. She then went on to study fashion design in college and where she got her Fashion history Ph.D. Her path in the photographic arts began the moment her first child opened her eyes and not long after she could be found with a camera always attached to her hip. Photography lets her experience life as a storyteller, an artist, and a dreamer.
