BEHIND

THE LENS

I'm so glad to meet you!

Photography intertwines seamlessly with the bonds I forge with every couple. My passion lies in cultivating genuine connections and curating an immersive experience that resonates with your unique vision and essence.  I aim to articulate the breadth and depth of your narrative, capturing the essence of your love in its most natural form.

As your wedding day unfolds, I seamlessly blend in, becoming another friend present, enabling me to authentically capture your essence. Every fleeting moment holds significance - from the grand gestures to the humorous subtleties, all weaving together to narrate your story. My goal is for both of you to revisit these images in the years ahead and be transported back to the emotions, atmosphere, and essence of your wedding day.

"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved." —Ansel Adams

GET TO DISCOVER MY 

STYLE

Contemporary with a hint of nostalgia.

Drawing inspiration from the rich history of film photography, I harnesses the tactile beauty and distinct look of the analog process. I blend modern digital gear with traditional film techniques, employing vintage cameras and experiment with various film stocks to infuse my work with an authentic, nostalgic quality.

The result is my signature aesthetic that is both timeless and contemporary, inviting you into a world where past and present coalesce.  I truly believe in this hybrid approach to photography and the singular, evocative style it births.

"I don't think it would have been the day it was if it wasn't for you"

Since the wedding I have been trying to find the words or come up with something so amazing to tell you. I have been so overwhelmed with everything you have done for us that I simply can not come up with the words. Like I have no words.  The photos Jake, no words. Absolutely stunning, the best I've ever seen. The amount of compliments I wish you could hear from my ears are insane. You have some major fans from our family and friends and I will 100 percent scream it from the rooftops about how every person needs to hire you for the most memorable day.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jake for our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Jake did an incredible job capturing every moment of our special day. Not only were the pictures stunning, but Jake also made the entire process enjoyable. He was professional, friendly, and seamlessly blended in with our guests. All of our friends and family commented on how personable and fun he was, making him a favorite among our guests. In fact, they are still singing his praises three weeks later.

"We are so glad we chose him as our wedding photographer."

The photos came out absolutely beautiful. He captured all the little details of the day so beautifully. He also got so many fun candid shots on the dance floor that make us feel like we are reliving the night. He is truly a talented photographer. His photos are a work of art, rather than looking staged and posy. We could tell how passionate he is about film photography, and it shows through his photos. Jake was also very kind and made us feel super comfortable. Throughout the entire process he was always quick to respond and answer any questions. 10/10 recommend!
