I’m a full-time destination wedding photographer and owner of Jarrod J. Photo based in San Diego, CA. Convincing clients to take long hikes in stylish outfits to capture that perfect shot in epic landscape venues is what I do best. My client’s referral is my biggest compliment. That’s what I’m most proud of because it means I exceeded their expectations. It’s an incredibly satisfying feeling to have clients share my work with friends and family.
What sets me apart is not only the style and quality of my work but the experience I provide my clients. My job is to understand the uniqueness of each couple and then create a personalized experience that accurately showcases their personality.

Hands down, the most talented photographer out there.
My first experience with Jarrod was when he took my senior photos in college over 4 years ago and I’ve been watching his work online in amazement ever since. When it came time to book my wedding photographer I remembered how professional, talented, and personable he was and that I had to have him there for our wedding. I didn’t care care how much it would cost to have him travel to another state for my wedding. My wedding day was unfortunately 104 degrees which doesn’t make anyone’s job easier. He knew when to have us take breaks and cool down and worked to make sure we all stayed comfortable all day. To be honest, I look at the photos we received and I have NO idea how he got so many perfectly detailed shots when most of the time I barely noticed he was there running around capturing literally everything! My wedding photos take my breath away and I know they still will 50 years from now. People are still constantly complimenting our wedding photo. I unfortunately didn’t give much direction on what I wanted for shots because I didn’t know, which I’m sure is hard to work with, but Jarrod covered everything and knew exactly what to do. We had decided to not do a first look and I was nervous because you hear people say it’s the one quiet moment they get that day. There was a moment when we went drove up the mountain to do sunset photos with multiple people and Jarrod had my husband and I walk away and dance for some pictures. Let me tell you, he gave us our one quiet moment. It was honestly one of my favorite parts of that entire day and it was only about 1 min. My husband is not comfortable in front of the camera but you wouldn’t know that from the photos, Jarrod knew just how to guide us to make the pictures all organic looking and feeling! This guy sure knows what he is doing. We feel so fortunate that we were able to have him capture the greatest day of our lives. We can’t thank him enough!Sent on 10/18/2018
