Let me let you in on a secret.

I never thought I'd become a photographer.

To say I came into photography in an unorthodox manner is an understatement.

I wasn’t a photography nerd in high school. I didn’t have some revelation about being artistic at any point in my youth.

My first career choice was to be a radio DJ. In fact, I joined the Navy to be a radio DJ. I was going to be on some exotic island, enjoying beaches and spinning records. But life has an interesting way of being redirected.

Everything changed for me when a tearful mom unfolded an old newspaper and said she wanted to get a better copy. The reason for the request? Her 10-year-old son had recently passed away after a long battle with leukemia and the image on the front page of the paper was him, bald from rounds of chemo, with a bird on his head and smile that would melt your heart. That was the last picture taken of him smiling … looking carefree like any other young boy.

They wanted the new copy to frame and place in his little brother’s bedroom so he’d always remember his big brother being happy and smiling down on him.

What changed my life from this experience was that was my image. An image from my very first newspaper assignment. I remember taking it and felt the whole assignment was taking away from my dream of being a DJ.

Two things passed through my mind when this happened:

I was a self-absorbed idiot

The power of photography and that tangible element is real and is meaningful. It’s a visual documentation that we are here. That we experienced life, loved, were loved, accomplished great feats, endured, and were a part of history within our family and communities.

After that experience, I immersed myself into photojournalism. I studied, job shadowed, worked my butt off telling the stories of people who I was lucky enough to get an inside look on their lives.

I’ve focused the photojournalism experience from all the assignments I’ve covered into telling stories of the people who won’t have their images highlighted inside a newspaper or magazine.

This is why I do what I do. It’s also why my home has images hanging from every wall to highlight who my daughters were growing up, and who they are now. I want to always remember the 20th anniversary trip with my wife, and see myself and my girls acting goofy together. These moments are fleeting and the memories quickly fade without the images to remind us.

Through portraits and weddings I’ve devoted a big part of my life to telling stories with my images. And I take that responsibility very seriously. Because I want you to have that tangible element that will tell your story to your children, and grandchildren, and their children. I want a family member to walk down a hallway decades from now and point to a picture and ask about that moment captured in time.

I want to document your story. Read less

You and Jacob are such people. From our first meeting, to our road trip engagement session, I was looking forward to your wedding. It didn't disappoint. A great crew of bridesmaids and groomsmen, an amazing wedding ceremony with a ton of emotion, a fun reception, an ice cream truck and I got the opportunity to take part in a prank on you — all priceless. Thanks for having me along for the journey.

After our first Skype consultation with Jerome, we knew we had to look no further for our wedding photographer. He was so friendly and personable from the very beginning, and his response time was always lightning fast. It's so valuable that he doesn't limit his wedding day coverage to a certain number of hours; as a result, our pictures tell the FULL story of the entire day, from getting ready to the last dance. It was amazing how seamlessly Jerome fit into our family and friend group, I've never seen a wedding where so many guests were on a first name basis with the photographer! But somehow at the same time, he was never too imposing during the more intimate moments. Jerome really took the time to get to know the key family members, which helped ensure that no important pictures were missed. Even though Jerome was over our photography budget, we took the leap of faith based on his work samples and on how organized yet easygoing he is, and we have ZERO regrets. He delivered everything we expected and much more. I highly recommend working with Jerome!

Thank you for taking the leap and allowing me to document your story. We had some great moments to capture and I truly enjoyed those moments where just the four of us were able to relax and share some good laughs of our own. Enjoy the images and album and I look forward to meeting up with you and Dave the next time you're in town or I'm in SoCal. Thanks!

Jerome is the best. He is so fast to respond, so nice, incredibly professional and talented. He helped me find my dj and my videographer. I had the best team thanks to Jerome. Or was important to me to have my wedding documented, and meetings did exactly that. My photos bring me back to exactly what I was feeling. If I could go back, I would still choose him as my photographer.

Of all the vendors you need for your wedding, the one you want the VERY best of is your Photographer! After all is said and done, this is what you are left with, aside from your new spouse! I didn't know what I wanted, other than the most amazing, in the moment, Vanity Fair quality images. How do you put that into words? Easy. Jerome Pollos. From the very first time we Skyped with Jerome, my now husband and I were hooked. Talking to Jerome was like talking to an old friend. He understood who we were as a couple and was able to reflect that in the images. Any time we had a question or concern, he was there with a realistic answer. Jerome had solutions for every possible "what if" we could throw at him. He thought outside of the box and created images that are magazine worthy. I can say that because I spent the past decade working as Stylist for ad campaigns in LA. When the images were shared with family and friends, the reactions were all the same, everyone was blown away! Jerome captured moments without you ever even knowing he was there. Spend the money, get the best EVER!

Jerome is an artist. His photos are outstanding. Our guests,my husband and I are more than impressed with his quality work but he's even more than just a photographer. He kept all my guests in line, coordinated everything. He was so personable and friendly. He communicated with the other vendors to make our day special. We had some problems with our catering, venue and the weather but honestly it didn't bother us because Jerome ironed everything out and made things move smoothly. For everything he did for us, you would think we were related but I just met him when another vendor referred him to us 6 months prior to our wedding. I would pay him double what he charged and my family would agree and we're in the lower class for income. He was just that great. My whole family still raves about him. He seemed to catch the best shots, that no one could ever catch. All my wedding party wished they could have had him for their photographer and I heard all about their regrets with their wedding photos. I regret the catering, and venue but am so blessed about the photos!!!

Don't waste your time looking for anyone else! Jerome is it. He helped us plan, think about details we had missed, was always in a good mood and felt more like a friend throughout the whole process. His upbeat personality kept our stress down, and he was not only there to take amazing photos but was there to help us fully enjoy each moment. We couldn't be happier working with him and with the unbelievable photos he shot. If you want artistic, journalistic style photos from a true professional that both loves his job and people, you just found your guy!

When my now husband and I first got engaged, literally everyone we spoke to said, "whatever you do, DO NOT skimp out on getting an awesome photographer, no matter the price." Well, long story short, we didn't really understand the gravity of the advice until we were left with horrendous photos that looked like unflattering prom photos taken in the middle of a park. Then we met the magician with a camera named Jerome Pollos who, in my opinion, saved our entire wedding.

By the time we received the original photos, we were only 5 months away from our wedding date. Thus, we needed gorgeous pictures in a hurry, and that's exactly what we got! Jerome was more than accommodating to our predicament, and gave us some of the most beautiful photos that I have ever seen (I might be a little biased!). Jerome is a hoot to work with, which was amazing because my husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of a camera. He's extremely professional and truly takes the time to make sure he understands the client as a couple and what makes your relationship special and different, and then captures that essence in his work. Jerome is such a special person, and we're blessed to have him photograph our wedding day and to consider him a friend!

Jerome was not only a fantastic photographer but also a great coordinator to help make our day so much more special. His promptness in communication and easy going professionalism made him very easy to work with. When we first got in contact with Jerome, he responded immediately letting us know he would check his calendar and get back to us. When he got back to us within 24 hours, he apologized for the delayed response. We were sold immediately that this was our guy! It is very apparent that Jerome loves what he does and is extremely good at what he does. The preparation leading up to the big day and the attention to detail on the big day was a great example of that. Once we received all of our photos and in the end, the incredible photo album, we are extremely happy that we chose Jerome to capture our special day.

Jerome was wonderful to work with. We had a pre-wedding photo location scouting session and it was very beneficial. He took his time to ensure I was comfortable with each location and explained the pros and cons of the locations as well. He took my suggestions and was honest when he had any concerns, since his goal was to capture the best images possible for us. On the wedding day, he was very calm and relaxing to be around. There's enough stress going on, so it was wonderful to have him (and his assistant) there to ease us and "drive" the photo process. Take some time to think over the images you really want so you have a list on the day of. One thing I regret is not having any solo photos of myself or my husband, but I guess that's my fault since I didn't include it on the list. Our images turned out great and our family has loved all of the Christmas gifts we've created with them. I would absolutely recommend Jerome to anyone who is looking for a professional, thoughtful photographer who provides non-traditional images that don't look like everyone else's!

100% pleased with the experience working with Jerome! He has a relaxed and fun personality. In addition to the stunning portrait shots we got of the bride and groom and family, Jerome was able to tell the story of our wedding through his photos. It is so fun to reminance through all the photos because he captured the perfect moments! It is clear he worked so hard throughout the night and was very present in the environment- aware of everything going on and capturing it!

A wonderful, and I think unique thing that Jerome provides is his services for unlimited time. He will arrive when you want and leave when the party is over- you don't have to choose between the getting ready photos or the send off photos, he will be there for all of it!

It was so exciting for my husband and I to be able to see some of our photos only a few days after our wedding, and the entire album was ready to view quickly! Jerome has a very organized method of viewing the album- he categorizes the photos made for easy viewing.

I would love to work with Jerome again in the future and recommend anyone looking for a photographer to snab him up!
