Hello! I’m Meg, Jake’s wife and best friend. Most ‘About’ sections give plenty of information on awards and achievements (of which he has many), but I wanted to give you a more personal insight into the person you’re considering as your wedding photographer for your big day. I’ve done life with this man by my side for the last 13+ years, and it’s my pleasure to be able to tell you a thing or two about him!
The first thing I have to say about Jake is that he is a family man. He’s a wonderful, devoted husband and father of our three beautiful children, Liliana, Thomas and Eileen. He’s fiery and passionate and squeezes out all he can from life. From the moment he wakes up early in the morning until his head hits his pillow at night, he endeavours to make every moment count. He lives his life from a place of deep conviction and his values influence every area of his life, as you can see from how he’s spent the last couple of years. He tells it like it is, and loves a good laugh – your photography shoot definitely won’t be short on jokes, that’s for sure!
I don’t need to say anything about his gift for taking incredible photographs, as they speak for themselves. But one of the things I really admire about Jake’s attitude towards his work is that he genuinely understands how important a wedding day is, and he’s a big advocate for marriage and family. I know he approaches everything he does on the day in a way that will help make it a special and memorable time. And I also know that he works hard to hand over photos that you will love, as I’ve witnessed the countless hours he’s spent editing and going over images.
At the end of the day, if you decide to have Jake as your photographer you will not only have incredible, beautiful photos, but you will have someone that will value participating in the whole experience with you, will treat you like someone who is important and not just a number, and will work with honesty and integrity. He is by no means perfect, but I think he’s tops and I’m pretty sure you will too.
