Jackson Forderer has been photographing professionally for over 5 years. He has worked for various editorial and personal clients and received awards from Pictures of the Year International, Associated Press, Minnesota Newspaper Photographer's Association (MNPA) and the Minnesota Newspaper Association. He is a member of the National Press Photographers Association and MNPA.

Here's what clients have to say:

"Jackson brought a photojournalist's perspective to our wedding day and captured the story through pictures. I hardly noticed he was there taking pictures and I am still amazed when I look through our wedding album to realize that he captured everything. He was easy to work with and very professional - best of all he had our proofs to us promptly so we could look at them right away." Angie Johnson Deokar

"Hiring Jackson Forderer Photography to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made regarding one of the most important days of our life. He is very professional and organized and his photographs did a great job of capturing the moment for us." Sarah Rucker

Jackson was very easy to work with and very flexible. He came up with some ideas for pictures that I never thought of doing. His flare for catching photos of the kids playing around after the wedding was fabulous!

I really enjoyed working with Jackson! He made things very simple for me and accommodated every need or changes I made. I was on a very tight budget and he made it possible for me to have the pictures I wanted. He is very helpful and even though he was busy during certain times of the year, he assured me that he is still going to be available to help me, when needed.

My Husband and I really enjoy our photos.

Thank you Jackson!

I'm not a photographer and usually even with big events, I'm not that big on photos. I was looking for a photographer who would sort of take over and take photos that would document the day. I was also looking for a few really great photos we could frame to put up. With regard to the first, I was pleased. Jackson took a lot of pictures of various guests and little things that i normally don't get captured.
The entire day he was very accommodating and flexible even staying back later than originally agreed upon. Regarding the latter, I was a bit disappointed. They were ok photos but none really stood out as photos we wanted to put up. For the pre-wedding photo session, I will suggest that you come with ideas of your own of poses, backgrounds, etc. There were photos where everything was really nice except that my dress was folded and crinkled OR a chair was in the background that could have been easily moved, etc. These weren't a lot of pictures but eye to detail in that regard was a bit lacking.
Having said all of this, Jackson was pleasant to work with and blended in well. I didn't notice him at all during the wedding which I appreciated. Just do a little homework before and unless you are super picky you'll be happy enough. If you know nothing about what you want for your wedding photos, I would recommend going with a photographer who's done tons of weddings and can direct things.

Jackson is a great guy and was pretty flexible on details within the contract. He took the time to meet with us before the wedding to make sure all of the details were clear. Overall however he was very unorganized and it seemed like he was lost the entire day. I felt like I had to take control and run the show on my big day which takes away from the once in a lifetime experience. When i received our pictures online everything was very sloppy and details were missed. For example, during family pictures people were cut off OR they didn't fit within the backdrop and the things around it were in the picture (windows, chairs). If you want someone who can be creative and artistic go with someone more experience. His prices are lower than average but you get what you paid for...
