Michael and I got married in Boston, but thought why not get our engagement session done in Vegas on a business trip?!! After countless hours searching for photographers and finding the basic kind of cheese one would expect to be associated with the land of drive through wedding chapels, I narrowed down my choice to three: two San Diego based photographers and Jason. While I had the opportunity to interviewing with all three, Jason was the clear winner - not only did he have the artistic documentary style we were looking for, but he was also strong on the technical and post production side, plus the added bonus was our Boston connection (he went to BU). ABOUT JASON Timely - We were 10 minutes early for our shoot, and Jason was 15! Creative He has great ideas about cool locations where we could have our photo shoot. Even after a dozen trips to Las Vegas, he was able to introduce Michael to some new places! When you look at Jasons website you can clearly see that his strengths are light and form. Prepared - Jason went on location days before we arrived to test what time the sun would set and when the lights in the art district would come on. Talk about service! It goes without saying that he came with multiple cameras and lenses. Kind and Professional - Jason is fast over email, more than willing to chat by phone, and sent our online album earlier than his initial timeline. On location we was very polite to everyone we encountered. Because we wanted to include an element of story, Jason suggested that we invite Bernard Gaddis to our shoot. The lovely Bernard is a former Alvin Ailey dancer, now part of Cirque and is Artistic Director of his own company www.lvdance.org. Not only did Bernard have great onsite inspirations, but he also taught me how to stand so as to elongate the body, a class in how to look 20 pounds thinner if you will. Your special day is in great hands with Jason. Thanks Jason youre the best!
