Introduction: Empathy and understanding are two of the most important things in business. It's with these two things in mind that I provide my clients with services that seek to understand their problem/project as much as possible before moving forward. I've worked a number of different jobs in the marketing and advertising world. As a result, I'm able to adapt my understanding and perspective to the client and project in a way that translate through the image. My favorite thing about being a photographer is capturing the sort of image that causes my client to nod their head enthusiastically and shout out "YES" when they see the progress made. There's no better feeling in this business than a satisfied client.

Jared was awesome do work with. We had hired him to do family photos. This was no small task as there were 20 people and 7 oh whom where under the age of 8. We will use Jared again in the future.

Hands down the best family photos we've ever had. My husband's aunt received our Xmas card and said "This actually took my breath away". We were lost regarding what to do with poses etc, he helped guide us and our son. We are not naturals , but he definitely made us look like we were used to photoshoots lol. Fun, friendly, and communicates with us. He will be our first choice always.

Jared was awesome! He worked with us and made us feel very comfortable the whole time! Very easy going and understanding of what we wanted from our engagement photos. Even during the post processing period he was very communicative and helpful throughout! Would definitely recommend Jared to anyone looking for a photographer!

Jared is an amazing photographer as he is a person. He makes you feel comfortable and isn’t always checking his watch to see the time you have left. He’s done when you feel good and comfortable about your photos. He will definitely be our photographer for future events and memories! Thank you so much!

  • 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.
