About Us

JD and Jessica Merritt | Katy Wedding Photographers | Houston Wedding Photographers | Katy Family Photographers | Houston Family PhotographersSnaptacular Photos is owned and operated by JD and Jessica Merritt in Katy, TX. We’ve been photographing weddings and families since 2007!

We serve the Houston area, particularly Katy, Sugar Land, Spring, and inner loop Houston, but we’re not afraid of a little travel. We specialize in wedding photography and family portraits.

JD is the main photographer and editor. He does all the hard work, and Snaptacular Photos is his full time job! JD has been a photographer for over a decade and has made photos both his passion and profession. He has a degree in photography and graphic design from the University of Colorado. Fun fact: JD is also an avid board game enthusiast.

Jessica is the studio manager, album designer, human photo booth, and second photographer. Jessica is also an online content consultant, Facebook addict, and Pinterest experimenter. She has a degree in English literature from the University of Houston, but is addicted to terrible Kindle books.

Together, we have two sons, two cats, two dogs, and thousands of hairs on our floor. Oh, and photography superpowers (but you already knew that). Be sure to check out our blog about Snaptacular Photos. We’re also on Facebook and Twitter as @snaptacular (You should follow our personal accounts, too! @jessicamerritt and @bent__wookie).
