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

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.

Jerome was an awesome photographer! He was super attentive, fun, and knew how to handle the day. Anytime we had a question, he responded promptly. All the little details in the photos we wanted, he accomplished. Our images turned out perfectly. I would highly recommend Jerome to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion, but especially weddings. He helped keep everything on track.

We live over 2000 miles away from our wedding site in the Pacific Northwest and had only talked with Jerome on skype and through email. Yet, I wasn’t worried at all about the photography heading into the wedding because Jerome is very confident and organized. He had an entire worksheet for us to work through beforehand and had us assign a photography “bulldog” to help keep track of things in between the ceremony and reception. As a result, the photography sessions went smoothly, we never felt rushed, and that time between the ceremony and the reception was very efficient! Even so, there was a lot of laughter and goofing around during the photography sessions. Everyone had a lot of fun. Jerome fit in really well with our group.

The photography was amazing. All the pictures are gorgeous. He did an amazing job capturing everyone’s different personalities. We have serious pictures, we have elegant pictures, and there are some really goofy ones too!

Jerome is far more organized than we are. He had the pictures up and on the website before we were even back from our honeymoon. We took far longer picking the pictures for touchups and even the ones for prints. To his credit, he has never gotten impatient with us and has always been friendly, courteous, and flexible. He has been an amazing wedding photographer and we would recommend him hands down for any wedding.

Not only did he get hundreds of amazing pictures of the event; he was also very unobtrusive. Somehow Jerome was able to get different perspectives of the most personal and tender moments of the day without anyone really noticing or feeling camera shy. So many of the photos capture wonderful things that I wouldn't have ever known happened at our wedding otherwise.
My husband won't even let me get any photos of him on our honeymoon but somehow Jerome got the best pics of him I have ever seen- he was especially great at the candid moments but also got my husband feeling comfortable in some of the portraits. The photos look natural and capture the best of everyone at the event. He was so easy to work with and flexible to our needs and wants. I recommend him to all my friends- it was a great choice for us.

He is a master of color, our wedding pictures pop with brilliant hues and perfect lighting (using only natural light at our outdoor ceremony). You won't find an easier photographer to work with.

I chose Jerome over the other photographers in the area because he was so organized. Compared to others, his communication to us was fast, he knew the right questions to ask, and he was entertaining. Once we chose Jerome, he kept in contact with us and checked in every few weeks to make sure wedding planning was going well. He came out to our bison ranch a few months before the wedding and gave us many good ideas and basically helped plan the wedding :) I wish we could have Jerome around all the time because he was so fun, and he documented our wedding better than I could have ever imagined.
