Engagement Photography

Jacob was amazing. He made us so comfortable and the quality of his photos were incredible. He captured who we are as people and as a couple. I couldn’t have asked for someone better to do our engagement photos. 10/10

Engagement Photography

Jacob is such an amazing photographer. He did my engagement photos on matador beach. He totally worked with my vision and had so many suggestions for my fiancé and I that I felt we never were thinking of poses to do. He has experience shooting on the beach so our photos came out perfect. I cannot wait for him to do my wedding next!

Engagement Photography

Jacob was a pleasure to work with since we first inquired and through the engagement shoot. He was very responsive, professional and accommodating to try and understand our vision for the photo session. One thing that makes Jacob stand out from many other professionals is that he truly cares about sharing a story through his work which means he gets to know the couple even in the short amount of time spent during the photo session and tries to have the photos truly capture the moment and the personalities. As a wedding planner, I wanted to select a photographer who was able to share meaningful and thoughtful photos beyond the beautiful surrounding or posed couple pictures. Jacob did just that. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, we had a good time with him on the photo shoot, and he emphasized us being present in the moment and enjoying the time spent together! I’m so thankful we chose Jacob as our photographer and we were so happy with the outcome. Our friends and family all agreed that the pictures were so authentic and truly captured who we were while also being so artistic, editorial, and cinematic. Thank you Jacob for helping us make our civil marriage day so extremely special and capturing these beautiful moments! We can’t wait to work with you again for our future milestones!

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

    I charge an affordable hourly rate based on local competitive prices and factoring in editing time, equipment cost, and transportation and travel expenses**if applicable.

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

    The joy of photography is that it is storytelling, just visually. Consequently, I want to get to know as much or as little of your story as you want to share! It's about you! My goal is to make each customer feel confident, comfortable, and themselves in front of the camera. There's only one of you!

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

    I pursued visual arts through drawing & painting from childhood into post-grad and studied photography and photojournalism at school. I have learned that being an artist is as much about how you see as what you create.
