I’m Jason

Hey There! I’m Jason, a photojournalistic Des Moines wedding photographer who focuses on creative, photojournalistic wedding photography through dynamic and colorful imagery. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel all over the states and world documenting over 700 weddings for couples in love. I’m so excited to learn about you and your fiance and celebrate your wedding day while creating beautiful, lasting memories!

Frequently asked questions to ask your des moines wedding photographer…

I would describe the style of my editing as clean and crisp. I focus on finding (or creating) great light and editing colors true to how they look, no weird filters to distract from your moments. My shooting style is primarily photojournalistic, focusing on capturing the real moments of your day. We will pose family formals as necessary, but I really want you to focus on being present on your day and not worrying about my camera.

Absolutely. I take so much pride in the work that I deliver, and I want to make sure every couple has the best experience possible. I don’t hire associate photographers who are less experienced or might not give the same effort. If you book me, you get me!

I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph over 700 weddings all over the world in my career. I’ve photographed in Spain, Monaco, Hawaii, Jamaica, Mexico, and all over the US. Regardless of whether I’m your Italy, Jamaica, or Des Moines wedding photographer, what makes all of these experiences so great is the amazing couples who trusted me to photograph their story!

All collections include unlimited access to me if you have any questions throughout your planning process, photography-related or not. You will also be given an online gallery with your images, all retouched, all high resolution with unlimited rights. You can download your gallery immediately and display your photos however you’d like. I have attached a professional print lab to the gallery for ease of use for my couples if you’d like to take advantage of that.

Difficult lighting situations are my favorite part of a wedding day. I think this is what sets my work apart from most. I bring all of the necessary lighting gear to shoots to make sure that every moment is captured beautifully.

Absolutely! Once you send an inquiry, I’ll send over booking information as well as about a dozen full galleries that will show you exactly the type of gallery you will receive when working with me!

On average, couples spend around $4,800 for their wedding collections which may include engagement sessions, second photographers and beautiful wedding albums. My collections are all a la carte, so you aren’t locked into investing in anything that you don’t want.

As one of my couples, you choose your coverage, I won’t try to lock you into collections that don’t make sense for your day. All wedding day coverage is a la carte and can be customized to fit your exact needs. Also when booking, you can rest assured that I’ll be the photographer showing up to your wedding day, not an associate photographer!
