My job goes way beyond getting amazing pictures.

I’m there to give you peace of mind. I’m there to help you plan how your photographs will look and feel so the photos aren’t rushed, you aren’t stressed, or the day turns into chaos because there isn’t a solid plan.

The way I work causes my clients to have increased periods of relaxation and laughter. And that’s by design, because who wants to work with people who are stressed out and grumpy? Not me, that for sure.

Look, there are a lot of photographers out there. I’m sure you’ve been wading through a ton of websites in order to narrow down your top choices. But once you get to the point of choosing the photographer, it comes down to approach and comfortability. So here's my pitch.

My 20 years working with newspapers, magazines and agencies in the photojournalism field has allowed me to hone my skills in the way I work with people, adapt to situations, and most importantly, capture moments for those timeless images you’ll want to display in your home, and the homes of your family and friends.

Hop on over to my “kudos” section of this website to see what the people who have found themselves in front of my camera have to say about me and my work.

If you're wondering how I got to be a photographer, here's a little background on the unlikely path I took to get here.

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. I wasn't worried. I was going to be a radio DJ.

It didn't happen as planned. I was sent to a newspaper in Washington, D.C.

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 recorded history of memories 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 visual storytelling.

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

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.

And because I'm a legitimate photojournalist, I'm an active member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA).

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

What a wonderful experience it was working with Jerome! My husband Luke and I were married in Seattle on May 2nd and my wedding planner referred me to Jerome. Even though he was in Idaho, I thought i would give him a call because i loved his style of photos on his website. He was professional, he was easy going and made me feel very comfortable on our initial call. Jerome made the time to get to know us and established a relationship with us, which is so important when you are asking someone to document one of the most important days of your life! Jerome was so organized every step of the way. He helped us think through every detail of what we wanted to have photographed on the wedding day, which I SO appreciated!

Jerome flew in on the Friday before the wedding, and attended the rehearsal, which was great - It was comforting to understand he was in the know with everything happening during the ceremony, right off the bat! On the day of the wedding, Jerome was calm and collected, which helped me stay calm and collected! Jerome got the best candid shots throughout the day, which is exactly what my husband and I wanted - true, genuine moments. What Jerome was able to capture during the reception blew my mind. Whenever a moment was happening and I thought, "Oh I wish Jerome was here to shoot this", HE WAS THERE! It was like he was reading my mind, and magically showed up right on queue! I am so thankful for that, and we are also thankful for his genuine kindness and comforting, cool demeanor. He blended right in with our family and friends for the entire night! Thank you so much for everything, Jerome! We LOVE our wedding photos!!! :)

I'm pretty sure that whoever said, "A picture is worth a thousand words," was looking at some of Jerome's photos when they said it.

Jerome is an incredible, gifted photographer! My husband and I knew we wanted our photographs to capture who we are organically, showing our true personalities and our love for each other. Jerome was able to bring out the real emotions we feel for each other along with who each of us are individually.

To me, part of the reason Jerome was able to get such natural, special picture is because of his personality. He is a genuinely caring, friendly, fun guy. He did an amazing job of making us feel at ease while still handling his camera like a boss.

Jerome had an excellent turn around time when getting us the images he captured. We had some teaser photos within a couple of days! He also got us our final images much more quickly than any of the other photographers I've worked with.

I hope you all have the opportunity to meet and work with Jerome. We are forever grateful for the wonderful pictures he captured for us. They are so special to us!

Jerome was phenomenal. He took care of us all day! Then at the reception we didn't even know he was there capturing moments and people in a candid way that was so fun. I am so glad that we picked him. The day was easy, not forced and we have great memories that are captured beautifully.

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Jerome. He was very responsive and in touch when planning for the big day and provided numerous referrals for other vendors that we really loved. He helped lock down a wedding day timeline that was realistic and provided structure for some not so great planners like ourselves. And most of all he was fun to be around and took amazing photos! I found him to be a really calming presence that helped guide us throughout the day when emotions were high.

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.

I loved working with Jerome! He is an amazing photographer! He did an amazing job on our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Jerome is so fun to work with and he makes it fun and not awkward! When you book him for your wedding you get him for the whole day, which is hard to find! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer and will be having him be my photographer in the future.

My husband and I met Jerome while he was working with another photographer in my sister's wedding (before we got engaged), and we knew we would want him to someday do our wedding as our primary photographer. Once we got engaged, and after facebook-stalking and lots of research, we decided photojournalism best matched our taste. While those model-type beauty shots seem to be all the rage with all of our friends, we just really hate posing and are super goofy together. If you want poses for your wedding shots or whatever else you're doing, Jerome can do that of course, but we appreciated that his focus was capturing the moment. Jerome's photos best capture your dynamics as a couple or a family, it evokes emotion, it tells a story, it will show people for generations to come what that day in your life was like. Jerome's edits are flawless and timeless- no silly filters that will look dated in a few years. Even the most awkward or camera shy people seem to find themselves having fun with Jerome as their photographer. This guy knows what he is doing. With Jerome, you don't really need a second photographer- he is all over the place and will capture moments you didn't even realize were going on around you. HOWEVER! As with any big day with lots of people, you cannot be in the same place as everyone else. If you want your photographer to be just capturing you and your new husband but also taking pictures of every single guest in your wedding, get a second photographer. If you didn't get to see every guest in your wedding, the pictures of them help. Or if you want shots of the guys and the girls getting ready separately, you know you can have all the pictures. It's worth it if you do! Jerome can provide you with other insanely talented photographers, just ask him about it. Also, plan a lot of time for the group and family photos! Ideas will flow and you will have so much fun, it'll fly by! We absolutely recommend Jerome Pollos Photography for any occasion!

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!
