A couple cutting their wedding cake

Abby & Trent

San Diego, California

Jarrod is an absolutely incredibly photographer and we are so grateful that he was able to capture our wedding day so perfectly. We were so impressed by Jarrod’s professionalism and attention to detail. We are blown away that he was able to perfectly capture all the special moments of our wedding day – both big and small. We truly feel that we are reliving our wedding day when we scroll through our wedding photos because he perfectly captured the emotions of the day. Jarrod made my husband I both feel so relaxed on our wedding day and it honestly felt as though he was an old friend celebrating right alongside of us. We are so thrilled with how our weddings photos turned out and will definitely ask him to shoot our family photos in the future! We highly recommend hiring Jarrod to be part of your wedding day.

Jarrod is the most incredible photographer I have ever worked with. He makes you feel comfortable from your first meeting and is always professional. His talent and creative eye make the most breathtaking photos come to life. I have worked with a few photographers and no one comes close to the beauty that Jarrod produces. He even made my husband feel so comfortable taking engagement shots that my husband ended up being the star of the shoot! Jarrod did my engagement shoot, my destination wedding in Santorini, Greece, and my City Hall ceremony in San Francisco, CA. I wish I could hire Jarrod to follow me around all the time to capture all my important life moments. Highly recommend to anyone needing any photography needs! I promise you will not be disappointed.

Jarrod was the most professional, amazing photographer we have ever worked with. He made our wedding so special, and captured every.single. moment. I could not be happier with how our wedding/rehearsal dinner pictures turned out. He is so easy to work with, very responsive, and made my husband, and I, and our bridesmaids and groomsmen feel so relaxed.

Jarrod was an absolute dream to work with! From the engagement shoot to the wedding, the photos turned out truly amazing. He made us feel comfortable and provided some great posing direction which we definitely needed haha. When we were forced to postpone due to Covid, Jarrod mailed us a gift on our original date – a box with hand drawn illustration, homemade cookies, and a print of one of his gorgeous photos. We were blown away by the incredibly thoughtful gesture and just shows how much he truly cares about the couples he works with. We couldn’t recommend Jarrod enough!

Working with Jarrod as our photographer for our October wedding was incredible! From the very first inquiry and throughout the whole planning process he was prompt with answering emails and such a pleasure to work with! Our wedding was captured perfectly in every single way. We have had so many people tell us how amazing our pictures are. We highly recommend working with Jarrod J Photo, he was absolutely terrific!

Jarrod is the most relaxing photographer. My fiancé was nervous about having our photos taken for a couple of hours but Jarrod made him feel comfortable. They ended up chatting and getting along so well he forgot about the camera so we could capture some amazing shots. I appreciate Jarrod’s speed at getting the photos back to us too and how he knew all the great spots to capture our magical engagement photos. We are excited to have him at our wedding this year! I am sure the photos will be wonderful!

Jarrod was the absolute BEST investment we could have ever made for our wedding. After seeing all the beautiful pictures he had done for our friends’ weddings in the past- we knew there was no one else. We now have the most amazing keepsakes from our wedding day that we will forever cherish. It’s like we get to relive the day whenever we look back on photos. I also HIGHLY recommend hiring him for your rehearsal dinner too. We almost overlooked considering this, but after receiving advice to do this, we committed and are so so thankful we have these moments captured too.

Thank you, Jarrod, for being such a big part of our special day!!

We had an amazing experience with Jarrod and his team. We did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos with him and they are incredible!

Jarrod himself is super professional and blends the perfect mix of giving you direction and letting things happen naturally. He captures both sides beautifully.

I’ve already recommended him to other friends and will continue to do so for years to come.

Jarrod is probably the most talented photographer out there and yet he is extremely humble and down to earth. My fiancé and I hired him for our engagement shoot and wedding day.I’ll be honest, taking these types of intimate photos can be very awkward but they were totally comfortable with Jarrod behind the camera. We’ve received all of our pictures and they have turned out amazing. We will love them forever!

Jarrod was one of our best vendor choices! We were married in Napa July 2022 and he shot both our Friday night rehearsal dinner/welcome drinks as well as our Saturday wedding. He was very thoughtful in capturing the pictures we wanted and did an amazing job keeping us calm on the day of! Pictures turned out AMAZING! Couldn’t be happier with them.
