I have an artful and editorial approach to shooting weddings. Having been trained on traditional film formats, I specialize in using analog techniques to create elegant and timeless photographs.
After studying photography at Ball State University in my home state of Indiana, I relocated to San Francisco in pursuit of a more creative environment. After photographing a handful of weddings up and down the California coast, I then made the move to Brooklyn bringing along my rustic, yet classic photography style.
Beyond my photographic work, my passions include: Cycling, traveling, coffee, Berlin, light, sound, and love.
He has an eye for detail and color that is magazine material and I will continuously recommend him to everyone I know.
Working with Jared on such an important day ended up being one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! No matter the inquiry or request, Jared made the entire experience seamless. He has an eye for detail and color that is magazine material and I will continuously recommend him to everyone I know. Jared really makes you feel comfortable and doesn't force the cheesy cliché poses. I was a little worried with the rainy weather that my pictures wouldn't capture the detail and beauty of the environment, but Jared knew exactly what to do and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I was honestly blown away when I received the proofs. The quality is beyond what I imagined and he has given me a gift I am forever grateful for. Thank you Jared!

We hired Jared to capture the day and we were
so pleased with the results,
In 2011, Lorevic and I decided to get married after 8 years of commitment. We wanted to capture natural photos as opposed to staged shots. We hired Jared to capture the day and we were so pleased with the results, The photos were amazing and captured the sentiment of the day. Jared was so easy to work with and also really fun to be around. We highly recommend him for any wedding or other important occasion.

The best thing about Jared is that his Midwestern charm makes the couple and the guests feel comfortable; he is fun and outgoing, but still professional.
Jared is fantastic! He did our engagement photos and we knew right away that we wanted him to shoot our wedding too. The best thing about Jared is that his Midwestern charm makes the couple and the guests feel comfortable; he is fun and outgoing, but still professional. Also, Jared knows how to effectively balance his ability to give direction and ideas with his skill of hanging back and blending in with the activity. He captures the variety of moments, from the memorable ones to the little ones you may have missed in the flurry of events. Jared gets a great mix of posed shots, action shots, and shots of the details. The wedding day goes so fast, but we're so glad that we had Jared there to take amazing photos. They will remind us of the memories we will have forever.

As a gay couple, it was very important to us to have someone who understood the intricacies of a same sex wedding and was sensitive to the moment.
Jared could not have been a better wedding photographer. We were really impressed by his professionalism and eye for detail. Our photographs were truly outstanding, and he unobtrusively captured the magic of our special day perfectly. All of our guests and our wedding party (especially the mothers-in-laws) took extra effort to comment on his professionalism, efficiency, and how much everyone enjoyed having him present. As a gay couple, it was very important to us to have someone who understood the intricacies of a same sex wedding and was sensitive to the moment. We could not recommend him more highly.
