It was New Years Eve, and I was being lame in my Rome hotel room when the clock struck midnight. In my defense I did have a 5 am flight to Florence the next morning. As I laid in bed my Facebook messages starting going off. When I opened the first one, it was from one of my friends, Ashley, telling me her long time friend had just gotten engaged at the Trevi fountain. At first I was like hmmm, where is she going with this.... Seconds later she asked if I would be around the next day to take engagement photos of them in Rome. What photographer wouldn't love to take engagement photos in Rome of all places. Unfortunately I had to tell Ashley that I was off to Florence the next morning. Thinking that was the end of the conversation I got ready for bed, minutes later she came back with, "what are the chances of this, but they too are going to Florence tomorrow!" This was fate! Needless to say, I met Meg(Ashley's friend) and her new fiance Ross, 2 days later in front of the Louis Vuitton store in Florence. The first thing that came out of Meg's mouth was telling me how sick she was and she could barely get out of bed. Being the trooper that she was Meg pushed through what seemed like an all day event as we made our way around Florence for their engagement photos( it was really only 2 hours). Ross who loves pictures (NOT REALLY AT ALL) would probably actually tell you it did take all day! The pictures were gorgeous, even sick Meg looked beautiful, and we couldn't of had more fun! The minute we got back to the states wedding planning began. Knowing she was going to need some help, I introduced her to an amazing wedding planner, none other than Ms. Holly Chavez, owner of HMC Event Solutions. The moment Meg met Holly she knew she was the perfect fit for her and insisted she book her right then and there! After months of planning, visits to countless venues and estates, Meg, her amazing Mom(Maureen) and Holly, chose Calimigo's Ranch Wedding in gorgeous Malibu, California. As you can see there were so many amazing details they all put together as Meg had envisioned. Family and friends traveled from all over the country for this fun, vintage inspired, chic wedding! Obviously as you look through these pictures its very clear these two are so in love, but even more importantly they know how to have fun together. Weddings like this make doing what I do so easy!!!!!!
I guess I should start by saying I’m Jeremy, and it’s nice to virtually “meet you,” as cheesy as that sounds LOL. Welcome to my website, my blog, my love, and my life; here’s where you get to see what truly makes me happy. Not many people can do what they love and call it “work.” For me photography is not work. It’s something I’ve always had a passion for. I got my first camera for Christmas when I was 10, and started taking pictures of anyone and anything. When I was 16, I was the kid who took 27 rolls of film to Europe on a class trip and still needed to buy more. In any event I think I’ve just dated myself by confessing I first used a film camera. No need to worry I’ve since upgraded to a pair of pretty amazing digital Canons.
Growing up in Detroit, Michigan is probably the biggest reason I have been able to stay grounded even after 11 years here in sunny Southern California. I am currently living and working in Downtown Los Angeles. Please hold back the ooohs and uh ohhs as it’s actually pretty amazing and A LOT safer than it used to be. Now I only have to carry mace and a stun gun at night, just kidding! All joking aside in case you can’t already tell I’m a pretty sarcastic and funny guy. Well at least my Mom tells me I’m funny, she also tells me I’m pretty cute too, doesn’t that count for something?
Checking out my Facebook and website, you can probably gather my better half (Tim), my family and my friends are very important to me. I may not get to see everyone I love as often as I like, but thanks to things like Facebook, Facetime, and texting I manage to keep in touch with everyone. I have the best support system anyone could ask for. I have the best parents, the most amazing significant other, and the most supportive and loyal vendors and clients. Without anyone of you I wouldn’t be where I am today, doing what I love to do!
So as you explore my website, my blog, my work, and ultimately my life just know that I am so grateful and humbled for the opportunity to take what I love doing and share it with you and your families! I am honored to be given the chance to create memories that will be passed on through your family for generations to come, to create amazing pieces of art to be displayed in your homes for years to come, and most importantly, I am very happy to invite you into the LA Exposures family!
