Engagement Photography

Jamaal was an amazing photographer! He was so easy to plan the perfect engagement with. I was so happy to work with him and have him there to capture the look on my now fiancé’s face when she turned around and I was on my knee. Family and friends all said he perfectly captured the emotion and that’s so important with pictures. My fiancé loved his work also and looks forward to hopefully working with him again in the future. Thank you again Jamaal for the perfect engagement on New Years Eve!

Wedding and Event Photography

Jamaal was amazing!! We held our wedding at the beginning of the virus outbreak, and Jamaal followed through with our plans. We had amazing photos in the city and at our wedding location. He was incredibly professional and we love his artistic eye! He also turned our pictures around very quickly! Great to work with!

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

    Yes! You can see my pricing breakdown here VisualsbyJm.com/pricing and see the following link for Wedding Pricing: VisualsbyJm.com/investment

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

    It's always a pleasure meeting new faces especially when they are looking for someone to capture their moments. It's a lot of pressure and I don't take it lightly. When possible, we set up a date and time to meet, call/video chat about for introductions and so we can talk about what service you're looking for and if I'm the guy for the job. I probably am but you never know. I'm no plumber!

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

    I'm a self-taught photographer of 6 years and I've attended countless seminars and classes sponsored by the best photographers and industry leading graphic companies in the world.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
