Introduction: Empathy and understanding are two of the most important things in business, in my opinion. It's with these in mind that I provide my clients with services that seek to understand their 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 exactly what I was looking for! He knew the location and was able to blend in with the crowd. The candid shots he captured looked like they came straight out of a travel magazine and everyone was raving about the quality of photos. When planning events, I tend to worry about the price for almost everything except the photography. Photos last forever and Jared’s quality of photography makes them worth keeping forever (while still keeping his prices competitive). After the candid shots, he took some staged photos and recommended locations and poses. These turned out amazing as well because I have no idea how to stage a shot or take a pose on my own. If you want to work with someone who will give you peace of mind and do it right the first time, go with Jared.

Jared was great to work with. He’s responsive, professional and did a great job helping take head shots and group photos for our company’s website. I would work with him again.

Jared was absolutely amazing! He managed to give me beautiful graduation photos for my college graduation, as well as beautiful photos of my boyfriend and myself that we both cherish. Jared was so awesome, he helped me and my boyfriend just get out of our shells and just be ourselves and he captured some amazing in the moment shots that are perfect representations of our relationship. I would recommend Jared to anyone, he overall was really great!

Jared was my fourth attempt at getting headshots done over the past couple of years and WOW did he deliver and then some. Jared is exceptional at capturing the "in between" moments so that you look like the best version of you (and not an awkward posed school photo). He was also really kind, patient and made me feel really comfortable right away. Photoshoots can feel intimidating, especially solo headshots, but Jared made me feel like I was just hanging out with a friend (who just happened to be carrying around a camera capturing great pics of me). I'm excited to work with him again in the future!

Jared shot my engagement and was extremely flexible, reliable, and kind. I was delayed on my end and because of that, we didn’t have a lot of good light left in the day. However, Jared still took advantage of the light we had left and produced some beautiful shots. He even offered to shoot again for us free of charge if we weren’t happy with the shots we got. I highly recommend him as he works with you to make sure he sees your vision and is able to accommodate for anything you might need

Details: Couples portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • 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.
