A little about me and JHP:
thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out our work.
our goal is to have fun and make great photos. we take our work, not ourselves, very seriously. we want our clients not only to be proud to share our work, but also to enjoy the experience.
photography has always been (and is still) a hobby. that hobby turned into a passion, then addiction, and now a thriving business. i get to create so many different products by playing with "toys" and collaborating with interesting folks. sure, all the products are photos, but they are used by so many different people in so many different ways. some people use them to teach future generations their family history, some use them to treasure moments in time, some use them to hang on the wall as art, some use them to put a face with a name, some use them to sell products, and the possibilities are constantly changing.
people are my favorite photo subjects. Whether I am directing folks during a photoshoot or snapping candid photos; i love expression and reaction. that may be the reaction of the people in the picture or the reaction of people to the picture. i think people are the most challenging subjects, and i like that challenge.
our business began in 2009 on nights and weekends as a part-time escape from my corporate gig. in 2010 it grew large enough to quit my day job and become a full-time photographer. since then wedding photography has been the bulk of our business, and we plan to keep it that way. in 2013 our goal was to shoot between 20-25 weddings. at the end of 2013 we had shot 30 weddings. not to mention that i got married along the way.
In addition to 30 weddings we shot 32 portrait sessions, 20 commercial shoots, 17 corporate shoots, 8 travel shoots, and 6 pro bono shoots. to say it was a busy year would be an understatement. the growth of our business continues to surprise me. 2014 is shaping up to continue that growth, and we will be looking to grow our team throughout the year.
our team consists of photographers, assistants, and interns. i am the primary photographer for every shoot, and since each shoot is different the team required is custom tailored.
call or email me if you are interested in discussing your photo project.
