HELLO, MY NAME IS JASON

Co-Owner + Lead Photographer

My favorite is working with the Groomsmen (of course I like working with the guys...) and I LIVE for catching memorable in-the-moment candids. I have a natural ability to be wherever a candid moment is happening and at the right time.

Jason's alternate perspective completes our well-rounded coverage of all of the special moments you dearly want captured. His additional perspectives gives us such an advantage to having an abundance of great images for the client.

WHY WE LOVE WHAT WE DO


Being the wedding photographer means being the one to capture the day and tell the story of their big day by freezing fraction of a second moments, that are otherwise gone, forever. As the one to document one of the most important days in someone’s life is a huge responsibility. But this concept of capturing these key moments (and the moments between moments) is truly what it is all about. These photos will be the only artifacts left after the wedding for couples to relive their big day and quite often they are amazed and enthused at the mini candid moments that are captured that they had no idea was even being photographed. As photographers, we can't hardly wait for you to be able to replay your wedding, capturing moments you may have not seen yourself. It is quite rewarding.


BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR CLIENTS


A lot goes into planning a wedding, this is why weddings are packed with so much emotion. By the time we first meet with the couple, through all of the communication and helping with planning, through the engagement session, and ultimately the wedding we have established some level of a personal connection.  On the wedding day we are pretty much with the bride and groom and also the family and bridal party throughout the entire day, by the time the night is over we certainly feel like not just another “vendor” but often feel like invited guests or friends.


WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ART FORM


Every wedding is unique. Each day unfolds differently, poses different challenges, and gives you different subjects to work with, but one thing that stays constant is it is YOUR imagery, and your art that you are creating. Every wedding photographer has their own unique style, both in terms of technical and composition style and also editing style, it's refreshing and exciting to know that with each wedding we photograph those photos encompass our vision and our creativity within each photo.


BRIDE + GROOM APPRECIATION AND ENTHUSIASM


 To me, the ultimate reward with being a wedding photographer is when your bride and groom tell you that they are head over heels in love with the photos, or their groom or mom/dad shed happy tears when looking through the photos. It is without a doubt the coolest feeling one can have. At that point you know you hit a home run and you have made an extremely gracious and happy client, one who will cherish your photos of them for years and years to come. The list can certainly go on and on but to us, these are the big main reasons why we love our jobs as wedding photographers!
