Making Memories


Times are changing.  We almost ALL have a smartphone that can take some neat photos.  The problem is this- ever try to print those photos for the wall or a book?  They may turn out quite blurry and pixelated- especially if you enlarge the print or crop to get that PERFECT PICTURE!  Trust me on this- I own a smartphone and take plenty of photos.  They, simply, are not even close when compared to the quality, sharpness and color a quality DSLR camera and high-performance lenses give you.   Again- TRUST ME! Looking at a photo on a phone is VERY DIFFERENT than printing one for your family.  You'll have a photograph hanging on your wall for years.   Why not make it the best.  There's just something about holding, or touching, a print in your hands.  The feel of it.  The realness.  I'm all about getting prints into people's hands and homes. 

 I'd love to talk with you about how to make this happen.  I promise you- I will give my absolute best and give an outstanding experience when working with you, your family or business.   

Along with working as a photographer, I'm a 1st grade teacher in Janesville, Wisconsin.

I currently reside in Oregon, Wisconsin with my wife and two boys.

A lot of folks like to take photos at Olbrich Gardens in Madison or Rotary Gardens in Janesville.  These are beautiful locations but will require an extra $30 fee PLUS entry fee for each individual.

Professional, efficient, friendly, thorough, thoughtful, and timely.  We enjoyed working with him very much and would definitely utilize his services again in the future.  

We recently had the pleasure or working with Jeff and his assistant Shiloh for our wedding in June.  We met with him several times prior to our wedding  and showed him where we hoped to do our wedding photos.  He went out of his way to check out the site independently and scope out where optimal photos could be taken.  The results where wonderful.  Our favorite photos are definitely the ones we took outside.  Jeff found wonderful places to take photos and he and Shiloh did a great job helping us pose.  We also got a good variety of candid shots.  

During our ceremony and reception Jeff captured special moments.  Looking at the photos I don't know how he did it because I don't remember him being even near us.  He was very respectful of our space while still making sure to get great photos.

Jeff was very timely in his editing of our photos.  I've heard other couples having to wait months and months to get their photos back.  Not with Jeff.  The quality of his work is phenomenal.  He did a variety of editing techniques and styles of photos.

My favorite memory would have to be Jeff staying late because he was so excited to capture the sunset.  He stayed almost 30 minutes over so that he could take photos of us and the sunset.  He kept saying just one more, but then he would see another cool opportunity.  You can tell how much he enjoys his work!

I can't say enough good things!
