HELLO! I’M JERRELL
I’m in the business of preserving love and all the magic that goes along with it. The smiles, the hugs, the natural and candid moments that tell the true story of your wedding day. Smile big, smile often and know that I’ll be right there with you to to capture it all.
WHAT I BELIEVE: I believe that getting married is the most important decision you will ever make. I believe that finding the right person to spend your life with is the greatest thing you can do for yourself. I believe that marriage is the foundation of everything good. I believe that when it comes to photography, feeling comfortable in front of the camera is something that doesn't come easy or natural to most people. I believe that giving my clients permission to be themselves in front of the camera and helping them to overcome the anxiety that can come with being photographed is PRICELESS. I believe that photographing weddings is the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life.
HOW I OPERATE: On your wedding day, I am constantly searching for and anticipating the best and happiest moments of your wedding day. I am patient, always smiling and doing my best to make sure you can remember your big day with a smile. I shoot with a minimal gear setup and try to use the least amount of flash possible so I can capture your wedding day exactly the way it looks. I ALWAYS dress professionally and you won’t see me without a floral bow tie and a fresh haircut. I will stay as involved as possible throughout the day and you’ll find me in the center of the dance floor capturing all the laughs during the reception. I aim to celebrate your wedding day WITH you and not as a ‘vendor.’ When it’s all said and done I want to be your favorite wedding vendor.
LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON
My father played live music and sang at weddings around the state of California before I was born. He helped couples celebrate their day in a special and meaningful way. As I think about the passion and dedication he gave to his craft I smile knowing I bring that same level of dedication when I'm behind the lens.
For me it goes deeper than just pressing the shutter button. My father is proudly looking down on me as I bring passion, creativity and expression to every wedding just like he used to. Plus, check out the floral ties!
When you trust me to photograph your wedding, you’re trusting a courteous, professional, stylish, always happy photographer completely focused on making sure you experience zero stress on your wedding day. If that’s what you’ve been looking for, I’d say look no further. The only question left is which bow tie should I wear to your big day?
