Based in Hillsboro, Oregon, I provide journalistic style wedding and portrait photography. I am a husband, dad of four, and “Papi” to three grandchildren. I am a proud Air Force veteran. Raised in Michigan and living around the world during my active duty years allowed me to call many people friends. My family and I have called Oregon “home” for the last 18 years. As an honorary Oregonian, I don’t use an umbrella and try to go tent camping at least once a month, rain or shine.
In 2007, following in my photographer dad’s footsteps, I was inspired to start Joys of Life Photography. The name reflects the joys of the life my wife and I share and the joys of your life we hope to capture. My goal is to photograph people’s genuine emotions in real-time. While on assignment, I am focused on capturing your emotions, smiles, and laughter.
I take pride in getting to know my clients, this ensures I am tuned in to your personal stylistic needs. Since every photography event, whether an engagement, wedding, or other special day, is a unique experience, I will meet with you to discuss how I can best serve you.

We had the pleasure of working with Jose this past summer and found him to be easy to work with both from our standpoint as a venue as well as his interactions with the bridal couple.
