Jake arrived early at the photo shoot location (at the beach). He took all kinds of photos of my dogs - - - individual, group, action, etc. He was very timely in sending the photos for my review. I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of photos and would not hesitate to hire Jake again for another photo shoot. He was fabulous to work with!Oct 8, 2018Verified
Jake is a nice person and very patient to my dog and also he did his best work on his editing each photos, that makes very happy. I highly recommend if you have a dog and want to take some fashion photos, choose Jake, he will give you some unique photos, and you never have it! Thanks Jake!Apr 18, 2018Verified
Working with Jake was a wonderful experience. I wanted professional but natural and fun photos of me and my family, having not had professional photos taken in many years. We met at a park and the fun ensued! Jake has a very warm, approachable personality and made the session fun for our family, resulting in beautiful pictures. It's as if we made a new friend in the process. He was extremely accommodating of scheduling changes and requests. He arrived at the meeting location early and was 100% prepared. Jake made the entire process very easy. The reasonable price is an added bonus. I highly recommend hiring Jake :)Oct 22, 2019Verified
Wedding and Event Photography
We hired Jake to take photos of my daughter and our family for her sweet 16. Jake was a great partner to work with. My daughter(s) were very active and boisterous- Jake handled them really well and even used it to take some candid pictures. He was at the photo site and hour early because we were shooting in a public park. Jake sent me the photos the next day and was in constant contact working with me through the edits. Overall, I feel it was a good decision and value. Besides, that Jake is a nice guy to partner with so the process was enjoyable. Will be using him again for sure.Oct 10, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I work within the budget of the client and if that budget is acceptable by myself and the client, we start the shoot. When I quote the client, I include my travel time and everything else, that I anticipate will be a part of the shoot. There is no other fees, unless we need to make significant changes to the nature of the project, but otherwise what you see is what you get and the rest is all inclusive.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Meet and greet, discuss the project and what the customer is looking to achieve. Get comfortable with the client, pets, kids and make sure that we have a vision for the shoot. Once that is established, we start the shoot. I like to make sure that the client is comfortable with me and how I do a shoot, pre and post shoot details. I like to make sure that all the steps are covered before we even get to the day of the shoot.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been shooting wildlife, family and friends for years. I am self taught and self driven person, who fell in love with photography. Got some online recognition from reputable sites such as NGM.com and several others. I enjoy shooting wildlife and extend the same passion to pets and their owners. I also enjoy capturing that special moment, that's where the true magic of photography is. I want to help others to preserve that special and memorable moment in time.
