My name is Jason Talley and I am the owner and main photographer for Exposure Photography. I want to give you a little information about myself so that you may know the kind of photographer I am and what my services include.

I am originally from Houston, Texas but find myself in wonderful Las Vegas as a Las Vegas Photographer. I am in the United States Air Force full time and have been for 10yrs. I have always been a talented pen and pencil artist but decided I wanted to pick up photography. Since I started, I have not stopped. I have been swamped with people that seem to love my work, which is quite motivating for me to continue doing what it is I am doing.

I am a very personable individual with great dedication, customer service, and a perfectionist attitude when it comes to photographing your big day. I have numerous customers and have yet to get even ONE complaint.

Of all the photography sessions I provide, I love weddings the most. I always feel honored to be part of someone's most important day. No other vendor on someone's wedding day will have the open lines of communication with the bride and groom like the photographer!

If you want someone with a great love for people, professional yet fun attitude, and great skill around a camera as well as your friends and family on your wedding day, give me a call.

If you only have questions and want some advice on picking a good photographer, even if it isnt me, I promise to give you unbiased, honest information!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Feel free to check out my site or give me a call at 832-557-0634.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I manually edit everyone of my wedding images personally. All images are color corrected for most accurate color. I also render most images in B&W as well as Sepia.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I would say that my ability to make light where there is none, is one of my greatest talents. That is what has set me apart from many other professionals. I am flexible enough to shoot beautifully natural lit daytime weddings as well as extremely low lit receptions. Nothing is a problem.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. Most now days prefer digital because it provides lower costs to the client plus much faster shooting and editing time on the back end.
How many photographers do you work with?
I usually work alone at weddings. I get into a "zone" and have been known to crawl around on the floor, or climb high vantage points to get the perfect shot. However, I always offer additional photographers when a clients prefers.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I am ALWAYS the main photographer for every wedding I book. You are paying for MY eye, not a hired help's. I won't book a wedding that I cannot guarantee my attendance at.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
NEVER in the same day. That is just a catastrophe waiting to happen. Wedding days are very dynamic and being flexible is important to me. I want to be wherever you need me to be, even if it was not the original plan. I will always be able to flex for a wedding day. I do sometimes have multiple weddings in a weekend, but never on the same day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes. I have an extensive network of other extremely talented professional photographers that are always happy to help if an extremely rare occasion occurs.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I bring my professional camera bodies, all my lenses, multiple portable lights, studio lights for larger rooms, as well as occasional props. Granola bars, water, Tylenol, and 5hr Energy is a must.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
I always bring my entire camera arsenal. You never know when a piece of equipment will fail. In addition, I have a back up of everything! Cameras, lenses, lighting, etc. I even bring back up pants and shirts because I HAVE torn out a pair of pants at the very beginning of a wedding from crawling around for a shot. It was embarrassing but provided a lot of comic relief!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My packages are based off an hourly rate, but can be adjusted to fit each bride and groom's specific wedding needs. Most packages offer increased incentives.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I am always available for additional hours. I charge a rate of $250/hr.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I usually only take breaks when the bride and groom take breaks. I do prefer a meal for weddings of 6 hours or more. I also eat when the bride and groom do to prevent missing any important moments during the reception. Most clients usually provide me and any assistant/second shooter with a guest meal.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel costs are already incorporated into all of my wedding packages for Houston, Las Vegas, and Oklahoma City. If I am requested for a wedding in an area other than these, custom pricing can be provided.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Usually wedding images are completely finished within 2-3 weeks. However, during a busy wedding season, it may take up to 4 weeks. I try to give all of my clients the best possible images and refuse to cut corners to save time.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
All the proofs are offered via digital online gallery. From this gallery clients can order many high quality prints, galleries, albums, and other fine art products.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
I leave the online gallery up for the client's use for up to 1 year. If a client needs extra time to place orders, I will extend this time per their request at no extra charge.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, the bride and groom will receive a copyright for personal use. This means that they may order prints/products from any photo lab they desire. They may use the images for any online websites or social media. Clients may not sell or make profit off of any of the images.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do retain full use of any images for the purpose of business promotion, advertising, blogs, and portfolios.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
A DVD with all edited images from the wedding day is provided with all wedding packages. On this DVD the copyright release will also be provided.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Images will be available for full viewing at the 2-4 week time frame.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer four different albums to keep the confusion and potential for a client to become overwhelmed to a minimum. Sorting through hundreds of photos to pick out favorites for an album has ALWAYS been a difficult process for any couple. I offer simple coffee table books and high end photograph quality albums in an assortment of design options. Millers Lab, ASA Books, and KISS Albums are my three main product partners.
When will the client get the final album?
Most albums, once designed and approved by the couple, will take from 4-6 weeks to receive.

I knew from the start that the one vendor I needed to get "right" was the photographer. I have heard SO MANY of my married friends say, "My wedding was perfect, I just wish I had better pictures. I wish I put more of my budget into the photographer." When its all over, all you have are photos. It doesn't matter if you get married at a castle in France -- if the pictures are terrible, what do you really have to hold on to?

I was definitely on a budget, so I initially passed Jason up thinking there's no way I could afford someone that good. I put in an info request just asking for the numbers. Instead of giving me the quote and letting me scamper off, he called me directly to discuss it. Turns out, I had some crazy expectation on what I thought I needed (hey, I've never done this before!) and he talked me through everything I would actually need from a photographer. He even offered names of other vendors he could recommend if I felt he was still out of my budget. Luckily, though, he ended up falling in the budget with my new realistic wedding-day schedule.

Our photos are absolutely stunning. Our engagement session was so much fun and he just made us so much more relaxed. Its not easy to be in front of a camera. But we got to know him and genuinely enjoyed the time we spent with him. It felt like hanging out with a good friend that just happens to be a killer photographer.

On top of ALL THAT, his prints are not sky-high like some others. I was the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding. Her photographers did gorgeous work as well, but none of us could afford to get more than a print or two from the day. I was so thrilled when I heard how affordable his prints are. I can ACTUALLY hang up his artwork in my home. Score!

All around -- a fantastic experience and I hope that he can photograph more of our important moments in years to come.

Jason Talley and his assistant were wonderful to work with. They were patient, kind, fun, and lightened up the mood on the most special - and yet stressful - day of my life! His photos have a modern flair to them; as if every single photo he took belonged in a chic magazine.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a wonderful photographer!

We stumbled upon Jason on the internet & researched his work along with numerous other photographers in the area, but Jason's style & skill clearly stood out compared to the rest. Having a good photographer was on the top of our priority list as we knew it was the one thing that would be able to give us a lifetime of memories from our special day. We scheduled a meeting with Jason to discuss potentially hiring him as our photographer. Well, after meeting with Jason I fell in love with his work & he & my husband hit it off. :) We left our initial meeting knowing without a doubt that Jason would be our wedding photographer.

The week of the wedding came & unfortunately we had chaos break loose. The bride had family arriving from out of her state & our dog had taken an extreme turn for the worst in his health just days before our wedding. With the natural jitters of a wedding the couple had out of state guests & a critically ill dog to tend to who ended up being placed in the bride's room on the day of the wedding. However, Jason learned of the other barriers we were up against & stuck through to the end like a champ. He & his 2nd photographer did an unbelievable job capturing all of the sacred moments of our day. The bride's immediate family consisted of over 12 children between the ages of 6 months to 10 years old & Jason was able to capture a wonderful family photo as the bride's mom only request. With a slight sad end to the story, our dog ended up passing while we were away on our honeymoon, but nothing will ever be able to replace the pictures Jason Talley got of him on our wedding day despite his failing health. Those photos are priceless.

Jason did a fantastic job capturing all of the key moments. No lists were given. He just knew what to capture & the perfect time to capture those special moments. Great photographer...no regrets!

Oh my, Jess! Such an amazing job you have done in this review. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. It means a lot. I am so glad you "stumbled upon" my work because it was such an amazing experience. I was so honored to be a part of your big day. I am so sorry you lost Cody, and on your honeymoon none the less. However, I am so glad we were able to capture him in his tux looking so dapper! Thank you again for being awesome!

My husband and I were beyond satisfied with the service and product produced by Exposure Photography by Jason Talley. He took care of our engagement session and wedding weekend and we can say that it was worth every penny and we will cherish all our photos and our experience with him for a lifetime!

Photographers show the best work on their websites, showing the best photos they’ve ever taken. In Jason’s case, his fascinating portfolio is an exact replica of the quality work we ended up with. He consistently produced the same quality work photo after photo. Our complete unedited wedding and engagement pictures were full of accurate/clean exposures, sharp details, good color and strong emotions from start to end.

After working with Jason there is no other way to feel but thrilled. Besides his great technical and creative talent his character is also an essential part of his greatness as a photographer. His patience during all the wedding-day events where nothing seems to happen on time. The way he took care of us regarding our photography experience with him and all the guidance he provided in our photography decisions. His good communication skills and charisma that were essential at the time of coordinating/getting to do what it was required and giving posing instructions. He fitted in smoothly and related to everyone during the wedding events. He was courteous, respectful and gracious to all and he considered everyone he met at our wedding as significant no matter who they were. He had our best interest in mind at all times, as if we were family to him. Jason is simply GREAT! We had a ten star experience and cannot wait to work with him again.

Jason is an epic photographer. His quality and expertise are only matched by his creativity. His innovative ideas for engagement and wedding photographs will amaze any couple. Jason's personality will also put at ease anyone that might be camera-shy, particularly those ornery grooms that might be less than thrilled at the prospect.

Beyond that, Jason is a great person to work with. His professionalism will be a relief for the brides that may feel overwhelmed in the planning process. He will stay in contact with you through the entire process, and can be a calming influence when something goes wrong (for example, if the DJ forgets the wedding music.)

We were referred to Jason by a relative, and that was the best decision of our entire wedding... except for the part where I said yes.
