About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My goal as your photographer and/or videographer is to capture the feelings and emotions behind each instance, for all to see and enjoy... not just the individuals that were present at that particular moment in time. It doesn't matter if I'm shooting head shots, composites, graduations, engagements or weddings... corporate events, birthday, anniversary or retirement parties... lifestyle, sporting events, real estate, business offices, promos or product shoots... my goal as your personal photographer and/or videographer is to Feel, Capture & Share the moment forever. I strive to make my clients feel relaxed and un-posed, offering guidance only when needed or asked, so that their images reflect who they truly are and what brought them to that moment. If I'm shooting inanimate objects, I use light, contrast and certain effects to highlight the subject and draw out emotions from the audience.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I truly enjoy that no two shoots are ever the same; each subject and what brought them in front of my camera lens is always unique. My job as your photographer and/or videographer is to capture your individual story and share it with others! I love that I get to play a small role in so many different adventures!

    Communication was great from the day I hired him all the way through the wedding. We got our samples back within 10 days of the wedding. They looked great. We left feedback so he could finish the final prints. We haven't had any communication since. We've called, emailed. We were supposed to have our final prints over 2 weeks ago according to Jerry and we haven't gotten anything but our samples. We feel like he took our money and ran. We asked our guests not to take photos at our ceremony, this was all we had. Wish we had gone another route. I'll be happy to amend my review if tings change...

    This review is long over due. Jerry and his team were a pleasure to work with. They shot our wedding at The Thursday Club in Point Loma. Jerry was never more then an e-mail away, and that was something that I really appreciated during our wedding planning because that was such a hectic time! He would often just send a quick e-mail to check in and see if we needed anything or had any questions. The main thing I wanted pictures of was our first look. Jerry took it into his own hands and scoped out the venue and found the perfect place for this all to happen. Of course I, being the bride, was late. So instead of waiting around for me, Jerry took the opportunity to get some pictures of the groom and groomsmen "getting ready". So we have some pictures of the boys. I really appreciated all the coaching that they offered, I am not naturally very comfortable infront of a camera, and they were quick to point out my nerves tense shoulders and hands to make my poses more natural. And thank goodness they knew what pictures they wanted to take, because I had NO idea. Me and my husband were just along for the ride. So far we've received our sample batch of pictures and they have come out AMAZING, I already have parents ordering prints of what they want! I can't wait to see how the rest turn out!

    Jerry and his team were awesome!! They shot our wedding video at Mt. Woodson Castle in Ramona, California. I was hesitant to go with a videographer in the beginning because I didn't think it was going to be necessary. I was SOOO wrong. Capturing one of the fastest and most important days of my life was worth every penny. Jerry Roxas Photography worked with my budget and not only that; but from the very beginning Jerry was attentive, always responded quickly, and made sure to check in every once in a while to make sure there was nothing I needed help with. Those small details meant the world to me during a very busy wedding planning time for me. We received our video today and it was absolutely beautiful! It was beyond what I could have ever dreamt up. I'm so glad Jerry and his team were such a perfect fit! :)

    While the shoot went well I was very disappointed in the follow through. The shoot was on a Sunday and I was promised the pictures by Wednesday. When Wednesday came and went, no one bothered to even give me a courtesy call to offer any explanation as to why my photos were not done. I called 4 times on Thursday and still no word from Jerry Roxas Photography. We are now going into Friday, still no word and no pictures. I am extremely disappointed in the service. They have my money and my pictures and no one seems to give a damn about contacting me to say why they are late or when I can expect to receive them. I would definitely NOT use Jerry Roxas again for any reason. They just don't seem to give a DAMN.
    Jerry R. Jun 9, 2017

    Linda - As per my conversation with you on the day of your shoot (AND my follow up email with you immediately after your shoot), I have a normal 5-7 business day turnaround on processing sample photos (which would mean you should expect your sample photos by Monday of NEXT week, since your shoot was JUST last Sunday). I mentioned that I would TRY to get you your sample photos by this Wednesday, however, I could not NOR did not promise you that I would. I also pride myself on my Top Pro status here on Thumbtack, as well as my five star rating, and especially having been hired over 200 times here on Thumbtack in the past year ALONE. My normal response time is 24 business hours (which would be today from your messages), so I'm somewhat perplexed as to how you can post a negative review of my services when NONE of promised timelines have passed?

    We did not get any thing back from him after 4 months
    Following my Previous comment, we still did not receive any thing presentable from Jerry. The video that he sent us is not synchronized. we never get our high resolution photos. also it is good to now that most of these comments here has been written by his family member. At least 3 of them was helping him on my wedding as assistance and I paid them and provide dinner for them. still I did not get any thing. Do not trust him with something that is important for you. Leila We had Jerry and his team as our wedding photographer and videographer on August 2016. He was supposed to send us our full photos and video package a month after our wedding but we are still waiting on them and he has been very unresponsive. My husband and I contacted him several times via his email, cellphone and work office but we have not got any response. These photos and videos are very important to us. I am now very heart broken and angry for trusting him and choosing him as our photographer and videographer. We have been very nice to him and very understanding for his situation and yet he is ignoring and not replying back to us.

    Invite Jerry into your family too.
    I was drawn to Jerry by his keen eye and the unconventionality and distinctiveness of his work on Thumbtack. I asked him to take informal pictures of my family's reunion at my mother-in-law's home in Escondido in January. I was fortunate to have picked the right person for the job. Jerry arrived early, scouted out the best outdoor and indoor locations, carefully set up his equipment and whimsically and playfully--without apparent effort--assembled and reassembled us into fluid and lively combinations. Jerry captured our individual personalities as well as the overall celebratory mood of our reunion brilliantly. The 90-minute session with Jerry was one of the highlights of my family's time together. The photograph of our middle daughter with her dog is my favorite. Jerry seemingly just "made it happen" on the spot. I heartily recommend Jerry for your photographic project.

    Do not hire this guy !!
    Beware of this photographer !! He seemed very professional at first and took my little one's 2 months old pictures. He never provided me with final version, gave false dates for deliveries and then stopped responding. It's more than money, it's memories of my daughter's 1 month old portraits. Very disappointed with experience and missed memories tooo :( Jerry, your response doesn't change anything, It's your job and I didn't ask you for any discount, I paid you in advance and not communicating and ruining my kid's captured moments it's far more precious than anything else. My kid is not going to be 2 months old anymore and she will regret that we depended on you. Besides 1 month is very long time for you to revert back and give pictures to your client. If you can not handle the workload please don't take and stop disappointing your customers with EXCUSES. Everone has jobs and things happen to everyone but you have to deliver at times. I gave you extension for almost 4-5 weeks and still no output; that is pure ignorance and unprofessional attitude from your side.
    Jerry R. Feb 22, 2017

    Vishal - It's disappointing that you are so unhappy and bitter when you don't get what you want for free. YES, you did ask for a discount when you booked me. YES, when I arrived you did ask for additional photos (you booked me for newborn photos, and when I got there you asked me to take numerous family portraits). YES, I did stay over an hour longer at your shoot than I was booked. YES, I did get sick and notify all of my clients that it would impact my turnaround time, and I AM STILL able to deliver edited photos to my clients within 30 days of their shoots. YES, all of my other clients were appreciative and respectful of my correspondence with them during my illness, as reflected by my continued 5 Star rating and Top Pro standing here on Thumbtack. And YES, I still hold true to my delivery obligations (including to you), even though you continue to negatively blast me online, because that's what I committed to do.

Please keep in mind that I notified you of this issue, I did your shoot at less than 30% of my normal price, I showed up early to your location, your shoot started late due to your other obligations, and I stayed nearly an hour longer than I was booked to take additional family photos per your request, at absolutely no charge to you.

    Amazing photographer
    I was lucky enough to get to work with Jerry before I moved up the coast to Washington state. We had a super fun shoot at the beautiful Windandsea beach. Jerry was really comfortable to shoot with and I had so much fun (totally felt like a real model). He was willing to go above and beyond by standing in the freezing cold water in order to get an amazing shot. I'd definitely book again with him the next time I'm down in San Diego. Regardless of what kind of photo shoot you're looking for I'd recommend Jerry for his creativity and amazing photographers eye.

    Great Photographer
    Jerry was awesome. I did now know anything about how to pose for a professional headshot but he guided me through the whole process, including what to wear. The shots were great and easy to retrieve from a digital web portal. And he came to me which was a huge help as I was without transportation at the moment!

He will work with you in each and every way possible. Though we didn't do the actual shoot, I can't imagine how amazing it would have been if we did!

    Not only a great photographer, also a great person!
    Jerry is a genuine individual and is very approachable. Unfortunately I no longer needed a photographer so I was unable to use his service but he is the first person I will go to when I do need a photographer! I was very impressed with how transparent he is about what he offers and I immediately trusted him from the get go. He communicated with me in a timely manner and was very professional and personable. There is a reason why he is a "top pro" and you can definitely tell why!

    What an amazing photo shoot! We had 15 of us ranging in age of 5 yrs to 60 yrs. Jerry was incredible. We were all traveling from out of town so we had Jerry pick the location and it couldn't have been more perfect. He was so fun and patient with us. He took every photo we had requested and even had some fun photo ideas of his own (those will probably be our favorites!). I can't imagine our shoot going any more perfect than it did. It was so much fun and we are so excited to get our photos. He was in communication with us from the day we booked it, right up until the day we finally got to meet him and his wonderful assistant, in person. I cannot say enough about how perfect he made our special family day!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For portraits, I like to talk with my clients first to put them at ease. I always provide my portrait clients with posing tips in advance, and then on the day of the shoot I give them some quick modeling tips and tricks to help them avoid the 'bad angles'. I also let them know my composition thoughts before I start shooting, and give them an opportunity to request any specific poses. Throughout the session I'm always working to make my clients feel relaxed, and I shoot as long as it takes to get the shot - regardless of how long the session was booked for. I also provide a sampling of edited photos to my clients within 72 hours, so they can get a feel for my editing styles and techniques before I deliver their final images. My clients appreciate that they have an opportunity to say less or more of certain editing techniques before they get their final images! For weddings, my clients appreciate the fact that their balances aren't due until 14 days before their special day, and that I provide them with a detailed wedding questionnaire immediately upon booking with me. My online wedding questionnaire allows my clients to provide me with all the details of their special day, from the wedding party and family names, the ceremony and reception locations, types and style of photos they want, and even down to the outfit they would like me and my team to wear! My wedding clients also appreciate that I follow up with them at least once a month before their big day, that I NEVER book another gig on the same day as a wedding (anything can happen, and I want to be there for the bride and groom!), and that they can change their answers and resubmit their wedding questionnaire as often as they like!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Base pricing for all of my photography sessions can be found on my business website. All photo sessions are on location and include all of the following: diffusers and off camera lighting (at my creative discretion); a private, portable changing tent (if needed); professionally edited photos; maximum fifteen (15) day turn-around on photo editing (30 days for weddings); a private and secure link to view and download high resolution photos; and an optional CDROM or USB drive of high resolution images in three different sizes (large, standard and web).
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've had the pleasure of photographing a wide range of subjects, including maternity, families with newborns/toddlers, high school and college grads, couples, engagements, weddings, both large (350+) and small (less than 10) events, business offices, professional head shots and composites, product shoots (chroma key and studio box), promo shoots, fitness models, online magazines, landscapes, architecture, lifestyle and much more!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently did a photo shoot for an online clothing store, which entailed two models and at least six outfit changes each. We were shooting their Spring line at a popular location in Poway. My job was to highlight the fabric, patterns, colors and feel of the outfits on the models in an outdoor setting. It was a late afternoon shoot scheduled for 2 hours. I would shoot one model while the other changed and adjusted makeup. With the sun setting and me making constant lighting adjustments, the shoot was fast and furious and I shot for nearly three hours. But at the end of the day, the models walked away with some great shots for their social media, and the client was so happy with her images that she's booked me as a regular photographer of her clothing line every six weeks!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always view their sample portfolio first, because every photographer has a different eye, style and technique. Check their online reviews, and then contact them to see if you feel comfortable with them. You'll need to be able to feel comfortable in front of the photographer to get the best shot! Finally, be sure to make sure they are a legal, fully licensed and insured professional, for your own protection. Jerry Roxas Photography is proud to carry full general liability insurance, and is happy to provide a copy of my insurance certificate upon request.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Be prepared to know what you want your professional photographs and images to 'say' to those that view them! You should know in advance if you want candid shots, professional, humorous, dramatic, etc - and letting your photographer know what your expectations are is important!
