About me, social media, and how to get in touch

Elegant & vibrant photography for life’s most heartfelt moments.

I’ve been photographing weddings and events long enough to have heard all the heartbreaking stories. You know, stories like “We didn’t get any good pictures!”, “The photographer was obnoxious and made it completely about themselves!”, “It took forever to get our photos!”, “Half the photos were missing!”, or “I don’t think they were even a professional!” Ugh. It makes me sad.

That’s why, for the last 13 years, I’ve made every effort to deliver so many elegant and vibrant photographs of life’s most heartfelt moments that you just won’t know what to do with them all - and that’s a good thing, right!? I also believe that it’s your day, and these are your moments, your memories, and so I strive to strike that right balance of capturing everything while being as unobtrusive as possible, without bringing any added stress to your day. And when your event is over I want to keep the good vibes going by getting you fully edited, beautiful images within a week in most cases! Oh, and I’ve got cameras upon cameras, lenses upon lenses, and your photos are backed up the moment they’re taken, then backed up again as soon as I get home to a computer. Finally, I’ve worked with many of the top event planners multiple times. That means they’re happy, their clients are happy, and they trust me enough to keep coming back. Of course, seeing photos of their weddings and events published in over 30 magazines and publications makes everyone happy too!

I wish those stories I’ve heard weren’t true and that all of the things I strive to do were simply a ‘given’. All I can say is, with me, it’s a ‘given’.

Now, let me tell you what ‘elegant’, ‘vibrant’, and ‘heartfelt moments’ mean to me. I desire to make images that exude elegance - classic, without being overly stuffy or boring. Sophisticated, high fashion, of the utmost character and quality. Those things matter to me. And I want them to be bright and beautiful and vibrant - regardless of what’s trending. I love color and light, even though I do like a good black & white or ‘moody’ photo on occasion too. I see weddings and events as being full of life, and so I create images that feel alive. And ‘heartfelt moments’? That’s the real stuff. My greatest desire is that someone, or everyone I work with really, could look at a photo and remember how they felt in that moment captured there forever in the photograph. It’s an art form I believe, a story told by an artist who follows his own heart, and feels his way through every moment, recognizing that these are the moments we live for, and live to remember.

Jared and Emily - 2018  I’m married to Emily and I have three children. Other than photography, I’m also passionate about movies (Eternal Sunshine), sports (Seahawks, then Broncos), board games (Catan), books (Name of the Wind), and music (Bon Iver).  I also love traveling and recently took my family to the Mayan Riviera, Ireland, and Seattle. (Not all at once!) I’m currently planning a trip to Paris, Venice, Cinque Terre, and Rome with just my wife, Emily. (Yes, all at once.)

What clients are saying

“Jared was an absolutely wonderful photographer. He was extremely professional, showed up on time, and knew exactly where to be during each moment of the wedding day in order to capture the perfect pictures. We have so many fantastic shots of our new family and all of our friends. The lighting is perfect in every photo, whether it was outdoors, inside the chapel, or the reception venue, and he managed to capture all the right moments. Thank you, Jared!”

“Jared is one of the most caring people I know! He made us feel so comfortable, and he did a great job of capturing the special moments in our wedding. We have used his services before, and therefore we knew how fantastic he is from our previous experience! I would 100% recommend him to others, he's awesome.”

“Jared and his assistant were amazing. Coming from a family of photographers, the heat was on and every picture was amazing. He also helped guide what the best timeline was, how to coordinate our family etc which was very helpful as he has much more experience than we did!”

 

“5 stars. Magical and modern photography, professional down to the tiniest detail, and calm, cool, collected, and KIND all day long. Jared is the perfect "third wheel" hanging around you and your new spouse during the best day of your life! Our photos captured the most memorable parts of the day for us and our guests (and one was picked up by a tourist magazine). Highly recommend.”

“We absolutely loved working with Jared! He has such a creative eye and our engagement and wedding photos turned out perfect. We enjoyed having Jared by our side throughout the wedding day. He was fantastic to work with, and we are so fortunate to have selected him as our photographer!”
