Photography that is both real and romantic.

Calm and honest energy on your wedding. What you get are artful images that become stories to tell for the generations to come.

My Approach

On your Wedding Day, you can expect me to move with a calm determination. I get to know people because I want to and I know it makes everyone more comfortable. I make suggestions and take ideas and I will never force something that doesn’t fit. I feel best when I am helpful. I’ll be a timekeeper and problem solver. I am looking to create art and capture emotions.

On the day of of our wedding, they were both super relaxed and cool, everyone loved them at the party, they took beautiful photos of us and honestly, they were the sweetest people to work with. Not only do they take awesome photos, they really care about their clients. I would recommend 100% and I already mention them to everyone I know! -Paulina

KIND WORDS

Jose and Jen were amazing from the minute we met them. Jose met with my husband and I for coffee over a year before our wedding date and we felt extremely comfortable with him and were impressed with his work. Little did we know that the day of our wedding both Jose and Jen would go above and beyond our expectations. Everyone from our family and friends were impressed and thrilled with them. One second Jose was on the dance floor snapping photos and the next thing you know he was in the loft. The candids and the portraits are both amazing. We are in love with them all. His use of lighting and angle are spectacular. Jose put me at ease throughout the morning and both he and Jen caught the most wonderful moments. Their editing is amazing. Their presence at the wedding made all the difference! We would hands down recommend them and their work.

Jon and Kris – a heartfelt engagement as the sun set into the night in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Jose is simply amazing. He put together a beautiful shoot for my girlfriend and I who had never had our photos taken professionally before. We were beyond nervous and felt totally awkward behind the camera when we started shooting. Within minutes Jose had morphed from a stranger I had never met into this amazing friend, support, encourager, and someone who knew exactly what to do to get Rachel and I in the “zone”. The pictures we had taken were absolutely breathtaking and something that we will cherish forever. –Savannah

It took many months for us to find the right wedding photographer. We didn’t want the cookie cutter photography, and Jose was the first photographer who actually listened to us and got on our level. He makes himself available for whatever we needed, and was fantastic the day of. The photos we got back were beautiful. I can’t recommend Jose enough. –  Talia

Jose is such a talented and creative photographer! We met with him for engagement photos and we had such a great time! He captured this special time for us perfectly and we couldn’t be more thankful to have these beautiful photos forever! We loved every photo he took and we used the photos for our save the dates, wedding website, and we also displayed them at our wedding! Jose is very easy to get along with and he made my husband and I both feel super comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Thank you so much Jose!! – Lauren
