I enjoy learning, so I dabble in many types of photography and also enjoy fresh challenges and discovering new techniques and approaches when I collaborate with folks to explore their ideas. If you think I'd be helpful to your project, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear the details and help in anyway I can. I love meeting new folks, exploring new places, and learning about others' perspectives.

About

First and foremost - I love what I do. I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with my clients. My goal is to make images speak, exposing "how it feels". I try to achieve in my work: balance, beauty, consistency and continual growth. I think my photography stands out from others as I have shot on film my entire life. I focus on "real moments", a more journalistic style of wedding photography. I switched to digital about five years ago. But when I make my photos I strive to get the shot right the first time "in camera" - not in Photoshop! A lot of photographers overly utilize Photoshop and manipulate their photos far beyond what they originally shot. With my work, I only use Lightroom as a "digital darkroom" to develop my colors of what I saw and try my best to make that shot perfect in my eyes to begin with. Photoshop is only used in my work if something major needs to be done, mistake, or a client has a special request for that magazine look of brushing, for example a fashion shoot, modeling ad and so on. No one should "rely" on Photoshop. You should rely on your "photography skills" - while on the job. Rates: Contact me (varying rate depending on event) Cancellation: $50 cancellation fee for (engagement shoots) I get the freedom to express how I see the world through my lens. These images are seen through my eyes with the help of my camera. My intention has always been to put the viewer in the moment, of actually feeling like they are in the photo, standing at the viewpoint, gazing, and leaving it up to the viewer to interpret their own feelings. I want to find the camera angle from which this feeling can be the most that they can be whatever that is. If it is the grace of the clouds, then I want the angle from which that grace becomes the absolute most it can be at that moment. And so it leads me on, to explore angles, space, reflections, and light. I strive to make "moments" make sense visually, and trust that the metaphor, meaning, will follow.

About

I am a Marine Corps Veteran, KU Film and Media Studies graduate and seasoned Freelance Photographer residing in the San Francisco bay. Originally from the Kansas City area, I picked up a camera shortly after being honorably discharged from the Marines back in 2008 and through hard work and dedication I figured out a way to make a living doing something I love. I am open-minded and can adapt to any situation you put me in. It is my mission to create awesome photos no matter what the circumstances are. Each request that I take on tends to be unique, from being inches away from the stage at a rock show to being deep in a cave in the middle of nowhere with deafening silence, the thrill of not knowing what I will photograph next is what keeps me clicking. I am not your average "turn and burn" photographer that just wants to get in, collect a paycheck, then get out. I pride myself in producing images that stand out. Ones that my clients are proud to showcase for years to come. What I like most about my job is meeting new people and being able to express my creativity while helping their businesses grow. It is very rewarding to see my clients proudly showcase the photos I helped them produce.

About

I take my time setting up the shot for best results. Never in a hurry to "finish and go home". Often I will spend more time than what I charge for. I am very particular with post processing, paying attention to the very small details. My hobby is also my profession. And I love it!

About

This is a tough one. I have to admit to not being particularly creative behind the camera for most of the work I do. My clients quite simply don't require it. I try, however, to be as prepared as possible prior to every job, often asking questions up until the last moment before leaving home. I make every attempt to get photographs to my clients as quickly as possible, and I am almost always of good nature, from first contact until the delivery of the photos. Cliché though it might seem, I most enjoy meeting the people I work with. The San Francisco area boasts such a diverse populace in background, personalities and interests that it's a pleasure meeting and chatting with them. As a relative newcomer to the Bay Area, it's also interesting to meet those who are lifelong residents of the city, as well as to learn how non-native San Franciscans came to live here.

About

I take my time to ask the property owner/seller how they want the property to be perceived. I scout the entire property before I set up. I make sure that the property is neat and clean and I have gone as far as help even straighten up homes along side the Realtor. For portraits, I ask several questions, even ask for examples of some styles of photos people are looking to get done. Getting travel, viewing different properties, meeting new people and getting design ideas from these visits.

About

There is a saying that ‘a picture is worth a 1000 words’. I love to capture the essence of the event. I just don't take pictures to collect a pay check, I love what I do and I have pride at my work. I want my clients to hire me for their future events and refer me to their friends and family because they love my work. Photos are all about capturing that perfect moment. And whether it's a Wedding, Birthday, baby shower, an anniversary or simply photos of your newborn, its moments like those which can be relived over and over. My passion as natural photographer, drives me to focus on images that are "in the moment", natural, and candid. In partnership with Wahida Jamal, our collaborative experience are both creative and detail oriented. Most of the time I only use 'iPhoto' or 'Lightroom' to edit the pictures. I use the photoshop only if there is a special request by the client. I love what I do, the most amazing part of my job is how different every job is. I go to different locations, different functions. I meet different people and experience wide variety of cultures. I have been to many countries and been exposed to many cultures, but I still experience something new all the time. I like to be open minded and work with the client to make sure their special day, special event stays special.

About

Finding a wedding photographer was such an overwhelming task and my husband and I were so glad to have found Genevieve Jerome Photography. From our initial discussions, we found that she as easy to work with, offered us different photo packages to help us stay in my budget, and had a fun journalistic style of photography that worked perfectly with our personalities and venue. Genevieve was extremely organized in the months leading up to my wedding and maintained constant contact. It was reassuring to know that she had everything under control. On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant showed up early and were ready to go. Despite the fact that I was still running around to set things up (my wedding was mainly DIY) Genevieve set about taking dress photos and pre-wedding shots without me having to ask. My husband, a stickler for tradition, didn’t want to take any pre-ceremony shots, so Genevieve efficiently used that time to get separate bridesmaid and groomsmen photos. During the ceremony, we didn’t even notice she and her assistant were there taking photos. We were surprised at some of the great shots they got because they were very quiet and unobtrusive. Ninja photographers! Genevieve really shined during the family photos. Knowing that we were on a tight timeline, she organized everyone for a super-fast and efficient photo shoot and even included some fun group photos at my request. This was the first time my whole family had been together in several years so I know it couldn’t have been easy to get us to stop talking and take photos! The photos were truly beautiful and I laughed and cried as I clicked through the easy access online gallery she put up for me and my family. Like everyone says, the wedding was a blur to me and I can barely even remember some of the moments during the reception so I am grateful to have the photos to relive the memories. The lighting at our venue was very difficult to work with (indoor mostly low-light with some blinding accent lights) and she handled it expertly and used the strange lighting conditions to create some really cool lighting effects. Genevieve was also very accommodating to all the crazy shots my husband and I wanted to try out. Our venue was in a planetarium so we had to get some fun photos! Check them out  http://genevievejeromephotography33.blogspot.com/2015/03/when-i-first-moved-to-sacramento-from.html I also can’t get over the great photos of my husband that she captured. He really is resistant to being photographed and claims to not be photogenic at all, but Genevieve’s photos really brought out his character and he looked comfortable in all the photos. He barely lets me take photos of him! I will treasure these photos even more knowing that I will probably never get him to agree to take so many photos again. Thank you Genevieve for capturing the energy and excitement of our planetarium wedding so perfectly!

About

I specialize in portraiture and headshots because I love working with people. A lot of photographers are great technicians... but not so great with people. Since a portrait is a collaboration between the subject and the photographer, this human side of photography is essential! If you don't like your photographer, you're not going to collaborate very well. I'm friendly and approachable. I want you to look amazing. I mean it. I am well-versed in corporate head shots, online dating profile pictures, personal portraits, editorial, and lifestyle portraiture. While these are my specialties, I have also worked extensively as a food photographer and an event photographer. My clients range from authors, small start-ups, and self-employed individuals, to Fortune 100 companies and international firms.
