I don't have my pictures back yet but I'm sure they'll be great. Jared is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable. He was able to get a lot of good shots and paid attention to lighting and background. I am really happy with my choice of photographer and highly recommend him. Update: Got my pics back super fast. Jared is a total pro. Awesome to work with.Oct 4, 2018Verified

Jared is an excellent communicator & photographer! We would be excited to work with him again!Dec 20, 2018Verified
Jared shot professional photos for me last month. The entire experience was terrific. His quality and professionalism are outstanding. I am not someone who likes to be the center of attention and I have a "Chandler Bing smile" to boot! Jared made me feel very comfortable from the get-go and put me in poses that felt - and ultimately looked - very natural. He is clearly an artist but has a thorough grounding in the commercial goals for the project - he really understood what I needed from the shots and got it. Moreover the guy is a true professional. I had suggested the location (a hotel) for the shoot and when I arrived he had already walked the grounds and found the best areas there to shoot and had coordinated with management to make sure it was ok to do so. His service after the shoot was good too. He set expectations every step of the way and I never had to bug him - even though he got sick around the time he was to deliver the photos. Oh... and did I mention that the resulting photos were fantastic!? True testament: everyone has given me compliments on them and asks me who shot them. I don't hesitate to recommend Jared Murray and will be using him again soon!Nov 28, 2018Verified
MY CAT, ERIK, WAS SO IMPRESSED, THERE WERE STARS IN HIS EYES (no really, see the included pics, look in his eyes). THANKS, JARED! ......I asked Jared for a difficult task: to do a session with my CAT. I was really uneasy about the whole idea just because cats can be unpredictable sometimes and not very cooperative for a photo-shoot (unlike dogs). What stood out to me about Jared was that, from the start, he had a very flexible approach to this goal of mine. This comforted my nerves and apprehension about how my cat would handle a structured/arranged photo-shoot. Luckily everything went just fine and he got some GORGEOUS images within just an hour. But I still appreciated his openness and flexible approach to photographing such a finicky subject as a cat!Dec 10, 2017Verified
Jared is a lifelong learner and it shows in each photography session he conducts. He learns about his clients, works hard to understand their needs, and ultimately, adapts to those needs. His ambition and curiosity of the art he can capture is truly magical. The passion and drive to provide high quality photography will shine through every one of his photos. You'd be a fool to ask for more in a photographer.May 15, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's flexible to a degree, but completely fair.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to start with an initial consultation with my clients to suss out what the parameters for the project are, what sort of goals they have in mind, and set the proper expectations for all parties involved. This is typically the most tedious part, but once finished it makes the actual shoot a breeze and allows everyone to relax and have some fun.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Marketing. Through these degrees, I was able to understand how to tell a story and illicit responses. This sort of training carries over quite perfectly to photography.
