Jesse is my go-to for portrait and dance photography! For the past three years or so I have exclusively used photos taken by Jesse for audition head shots, program bios, and even my company "corporate" picture. I have done two sessions, and both times I was thrilled with the results. I should also mention, those "two sessions" covered a multitude of venues and looks -- indoor, outdoor urban, outdoor natural, studio session, and even a bar. All very different looks and lighting conditions, and each set of shots turned out beautifully.
Jesse is such a pleasure to work with -- patient, funny, and he has an amazing eye for color, light, and angle. When you're doing a session with Jesse, his passion for photography truly shows. In our most recent session, he was excitedly and happily clambering around rocky terrain to get that perfect shot! I tend to feel a bit shy and self conscious when put in front of a camera, but working with Jesse I felt absolutely at ease and able to enjoy the process -- and that absolutely show in the photos!
More than anything, I appreciate that Jesse's photos are of an incredible quality and manage to truly capture the essence of the person to a degree that I haven't experienced when working with other professional photographers. Some of my favorite shots surprised me -- natural and candid moments that Jesse caught when I wasn't posing or aware that he was snapping away.
Put simply, I couldn't recommend Jesse enough. I will absolutely be using him again for my portrait and dance photography in the future!
