Introduction: Hey There... We're Jake & Christina Gleim, A fun-loving husband and wife photography & videography team based in San Diego, California. Our passion for all things adventure, teamwork and love has brought our partnership through photography to a level unsurpassed. When two people who love each other also work together, the results have an extra dimension not often found in regular business partnerships. We Get It... Although there are lots of talented wedding photographers out there, we know what it’s like to plan a wedding, because we’ve done it. Six years ago, we said our own vows. Looking back, a lot of the day is a wonderful blur. Throughout the day, we will do everything to capture your vision of your wedding day just as you want it. That’s why capturing every special moments is so important! We Can Be Two Places at Once... A single photographer will not be able to capture every moment of your wedding day; there is simply too much happening at any given time. After years of working side by side, we have developed a dynamic formula that allows us to work incredibly quickly and efficiently. Photographing separate moments like, the bride getting ready, or the groom reading a letter from his soon to be wife, we are able to capture separate events happening at the same time. Even the little moments during the ceremony not normally noticed, like the grooms face when seeing his new wife walk down the aisle, captured at different angles. Teamwork Produces Better Results... Many wedding photographers hire a “second shooter,” but the name says it all. This person may be less experienced or may have never worked with your photographer before. At any rate, there is a hierarchy, which means that the second photographer will do what he or she is instructed to do. As a married couple, we cooperate and work together automatically. Whether it is taking care of our dog Koda, getting the errands run, or making sure our equipment is in tip-top condition for our next session. It's our goal with every session to make you feel like you're apart of a family. With a fun, light hearted approach we're sure to capture your natural expressions. But most importantly, we have worked as a team to photograph many weddings and will work together to fulfill your vision of how your wedding day should be recorded! It's Our Passion... When other photographers go home, they put their work away. If an issue comes up or they have an idea for a client, it has to wait until the next business day. Not so with us. We are together most of the time and thus are able to be creative when the ideas come, not when it's "business hours.". We each know the logistics for every shoot. But more importantly, we have a shared passion: Capturing your special moments! We’d be honored to photograph your special moments. Please Contact us to set up a time to chat about your vision for your Wedding or Portrait Photography session and how we can help you capture all the special moments!

Alicia L.

Engagement Photography

Christina and Jake photographed for my engagement shoot. It was a great experience! They are both very warm and easy going and professional. They helped with the poses and made us feel very comfortable. Christina was so fast with sending the photos back to me. Beautifully edited and the photos still looked natural. I was really excited to send out my Save the Dates! I love their style and I highly recommend booking Christina and Jake for your Wedding photos and cinematography too!

Wedding and Event Photography

We had such a great experience working with Gleimlight Photography! I could not have been happier that we picked Christina and Jacob to capture moments from our big day! They showed up early, were extremely kind and organized, and were very flexible (considering all the COVID circumstances surrounding the wedding, it was extremely appreciated!) Leading up to the day too, they were excellent communicators. I am so excited to see the final products!

Portrait Photography

I hire a professional photographer 1-2 times per year. We are a family of 6, this was by far the kids favorite photo shoot, the kids were all at ease and all the pics were very natural. They captured my kids biggest smiles and the magic in their eyes. Will definitely work with this duo again, next time we travel to CA.
Gleimlight Photography & Productions's reply
RC, We would love to see you anytime! It was a pleasure capturing you all together and can't wait to see your family grow. All our very best now and always! Sincerely, Christina & Jake Gleimlight

Portrait Photography

What can we say...Jake and Christina with Gleimlight Photography & Production are truly talented and so very easy to work with! We had our first every Family Photoshoot last Sunday and we didn't really know how it would go with our older children but both Jake and Christina made the process so relaxing and easy for our family! Gleimligh helped us pick the perfect location and with what I had in mind, recommended the perfect time of day to capture the best lighting! We absolutely LOVE our photos but more importantly have found our photographers for the next time we need to capture the beautiful moments that we want to last a lifetime!
Gleimlight Photography & Productions's reply
Jenny, We loved getting to know your family and look forward to capturing many more memories for you in the future. Wishing you all the very best! Sincerely, Jake & Christina Gleimlight

Portrait Photography

I cannot speak highly enough about Gleimlight. They were amazing. They made us feel relaxed from start to finish. Our boys loved the photoshoot and I have never heard them say that for any other photographers! Christina and Jake made the whole experience fun and engaging. They are true professionals and just very nice people. They were able to catch great natural moments from different angles (as there were 2 of them shooting). We received our photos very quickly and they were stunning. The way they used the light at sunset made for beautiful photos. I would give them 11 out of 10! I highly recommend them to anyone seeking professional photography for any occasion.
Gleimlight Photography & Productions's reply
Stephen, We cannot thank you enough for trusting us to capture your special family moments. We look forward to the years in the future and watching the boys grow! Thank you for your kind review, all our very best! Sincerely, Christina & Jake Gleimlight

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our prices start at $350 and work their way up from there. Our pricing is based on complexity and time it takes to capture the images as well as editing time (we hand edit every photo.) We also offer installment plans, allowing the client to create a payment plan that works for them.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We love learning about our couples and learning their specific vision! We look forward to discussing and understaning what our clients are looking for in their photos. We assist them with picking a location if they are unsure where to book their session. The client will then receive an official estimate with our terms and conditions in which they electronically sign and pay a retainer fee of 50% to book their session. Within 1 week the client's photos will be on a private gallery within our website along with convenient tools to download their photos, sign up for promos, and receive their print release form. Additionally, our clients can then purchase prints from our website.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a husband and wife team, we understand the importance of your wedding as we too have been there. We love capturing everything love and truly learning about each couples unique love story!
