When a Navy recruiter asked me what I liked to do, I told him, "I like to DJ."

And that's where my career as a photographer began ... kind of. See, the military sent me to a journalism school to study broadcast journalism, print journalism, and there was a two-week course in photography. You'd think this is where my interest began, but you'd be wrong. I failed the photography portion. I had an immense dislike for it. But I wasn't worried, because I was going to be a radio DJ.

When it came time to fill out my "dream sheet" of military bases I wanted to go to, I picked Souda Bay, Crete, Cuba and Puerto Rico — all islands with radio stations. I was sent to Washington, D.C. to work at a military newspaper.

Let's just say my time spent in the military got me on the path to photography once I realized the images I made were visual, historical documentation to be saved and shared by individuals and families for decades. As a radio DJ, I played music and read the weather. There was no comparison — I was hooked on photography.

That was 1995. Ever since then I've been dedicated to continually progressing my documentary abilities.

The hard work has paid off too. This is where I brag a little about myself. I've won 37 Associated Press awards for my photography, I've been published in magazines, newspapers and various documentary-focused websites around the world.

Now I bring this experience to my wedding photography where I focus my energies in capturing those quite, fleeting moments that add up to make your wedding day special.

Whether it's a engagement portrait session or a wedding day — I'm always drawing on my years of experience to find the best way to highlight the people who I'm lucky enough to photograph.

Feel free to contact me via email at jerome@jeromepollosphotography.com, through my website at http://www.jeromepollosphotography.com/contact/ or you can go old school and call me at (208) 640-7663. I look forward to hearing from you about your expectations for your big day. Read less

Jerome was amazing. My husband and I must have met with 10 different photographers, they were either not in our budget, didn't allow us enough time, or wouldn't work with us on how we wanted the day to go. Jerome is very reasonable in cost, his product is amazing, and he was as flexible as we needed him to be. We had him for the full day of the wedding, including me getting my hair done first thing in the morning, up to our exit at the end of the night. He is easy going, has a great personality and was fun to hang out with. I would recommend him to anyone for photography. We definitely hope to use him again in the future.

Jerome was there for us from start to finish! He is extremely flexible, easy to talk to, and listens to your wants/needs. When our wedding had to be evacuated due to severe weather, he helped us pack up and followed us to our unplanned destination. Jerome had our proofs ready to view quickly. His easy payments options were a huge plus as well. I would recommend Jerome for everyone's photography needs.

Jerome Pollos was amazing! I have highly recommended him to all my friends and family. In the planning stages, he helped us make sure we covered all of our bases so we were prepared to get every photo we wanted on our wedding day. On the actual day, he made it so perfect and easy for us. Jerome is the most comfortable person to be around. He sets you at ease and will be sure to get the best shots of you, your family, and your closest friends – even those who might be a bit camera shy. Jerome captured all the great moments I remember, and he even caught the ones I had no idea were taking place, like when my father gave that special hug to my future husband before the wedding. After the wedding, he got the photos to us so quickly. We were able to view them, sort them and share them with our guests immediately! From beginning to end, Jerome made our photography services the easiest part of our wedding, and he gave us lasting memories we will cherish forever. Thank you, Jerome!

Jerome is absolutely phenomenal! From the start, he was easy to work with and professional. We were planning our across the state and Jerome's flexibility in scheduling and meeting helped ease the stressful planning. We first met Jerome on the day of our engagement photos and felt comfortable instantly. Jerome is funny and easy to talk to, all while showcasing his great eye for art.

Jerome was there first thing in the morning of the wedding (9am or earlier) with my wife and her girls as they prepared and even managed to track me down to get some shots of the guys relaxing. During the wedding, Jerome was wonderful. His professionalism and flexibility made all of the scheduled shots a breeze, and his great personality and friendliness made him part of the group as the reception went on. So many people from that day mention how great of a guy he was. Our wedding got pretty silly toward the end, and Jerome managed to capture the fun with some memorable photos.

Jerome was able to put up some teaser photos within a few days of the wedding and had all of the images ready in under a month. To say we are happy with the images is an understatement. Jerome is truly an artist (which is what caught our attention to him first). He really captured the flavor of both us and the wedding. When we look at the photographs, they bring us right back to the moments of our big day. None of the photos look overly posed or forced. A lot of this has to do with how comfortable Jerome made everyone feel. My wife and I really wanted Jerome to make the call on the shots, and we are extremely happy with his decisions. We are lucky to have such great memories preserved.

We highly recommend Jerome Pollos Photography to any couple looking for beautiful images that capture your personalities and the feeling of your wedding day. The value is great for such professional and beautiful photographs and quality service. Jerome is the best!

Jerome was AMAZING from start to finish. He was readily available and willing to answer any questions we had, anytime. Our engagement session was absolutely beautiful and he picked a perfect location for my husband and I. Wedding day he was there all day and was almost invisible - in the best way possible. He got shots of us getting ready that really turned out to be some of our favorites because they were in the moment - they were moments that I can look at those pictures and remember exactly how I felt at that exact moment. During the wedding was exactly the same. His work is PHENOMENAL and he didn't miss one single moment that we wanted captured. Looking at all of my wedding pictures now, I know I will be forever grateful we chose him to be such an important part of our day.

We absolutely LOVED Jerome. I mean, we seriously could not have picked a better photographer. My husband and I had our engagement and wedding pics done by him. First of all, I really appreciated his great balance between being professional but also having a sense of humor and being light-hearted. He was super organized and always checked in with us. He helped us out A TON with ideas for our pics. We had our dogs for some of our engagement pics which was a bit of an extra hassle and he totally rolled with it.
Our wedding was even better. It was fun and we got done what needed to be done. We had a small wedding so Jerome made a flexible package for us, since we did not need all day coverage. And of course, our images were to die for. All you have to do is get on his website and see how great they are. Truly wonderful. We will always cherish our pictures. I never once had to worry about photography once we booked Jerome because he made everything easy and perfect for us. Walked us through anything that needed to be done beforehand, too. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Jerome is everything that a couple could want when choosing a photographer. He is organized, creative, thoughtful and really pays attention to the couple's wants and needs. He was an incredible help to me (the bride) and produced the most beautiful pictures. I have had so many people ask me who my photographer was and many comments on facebook loving the images. He captured our day in a way that we only had hoped and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Without hesitation, I would recommend him to anyone.
