“We had 2 sessions of engagement photo shoots with Jerry and WOW did the pictures look amazing! And then he shot our wedding
…. and we were even MORE impressed!
For my husband and I, choosing the photographer was one of the most important parts of planning our wedding. We wanted to find a photographer that was professional, prompt, and high-quality. Jerry brought all of these things to our special moments that he photographed. He also made us feel very relaxed and confident the whole time. You can tell that he definitely knows what he is doing.
We could not be more pleased with the way all of our pictures have turned out and we would highly recommend Jerry Giles to anyone.“

Thank you, Jerry, so much for photographing my daughter Jenna’s wedding this weekend! You were so much fun and the hardest working photographer I have ever seen. The preview of pics also look wonderful, I cannot wait to see them all. Thank you again!

“Thank you for making our wedding last a lifetime!!”

“I got Jerry as a referral from a good friend of mine who photographs weddings. My friend wanted to attend and enjoy the wedding rather than photograph the wedding. I had checked out Jerry’s website, so, I already had a lot of confidence in Jerry, but still you never know what you’re going to get. From the very first time I spoke with Jerry, I knew he was my type of photographer. He talked with me about everything I wanted and made me feel very comfortable about everything. I felt like I’ve known him for a while and I really got the feeling from him that he loves and cares about what he does.
On my wedding day, he actually showed up way ahead of time with permission from the venue and he was there photographing the details. He showed up magically in the Bride’s room right after I got into my dress made it through the chaos of tons of family members visiting me and everything else. I’m not sure how he kept his calm in that small room, but he did and with his direction I was able to finally get a few moments to myself and get some pictures with the wedding party and of myself. He made sure I had all the pictures I wanted. I actually had a lot of guests ask me the name of my photographer because they noticed how hard he and his assistant worked! If you want a photographer who cares and will do a great job for you… talk to Jerry. You will definitely NOT be disappointed!”

“Jerry was a great photographer who was more than willing to go the extra mile and make our day special. He took note to be aware of certain family dynamics and was very respectful to follow my requests. His effort was top to none and went WAY above and beyond what we could have hoped for. Our engagement photos were just breath taking and our wedding photos were even better. All of the perfect memories were captured and I have more than enough photos to spread around. Jerry is extremely focused to please and has just a great eye for amazing photography. He definitely did not charge us enough for the job that he did. I’d recommend Jerry to anyone for any occasion. He has just a great eye and cares a lot about making your day memorable for years to come!”

“Wonderful! Professional! Excellent! Can’t say enough about Jerry. We were coming to LA for a cousin’s wedding from Dallas, and last minute we thought to take our engagement pictures while we were there. Despite our tough schedule, Jerry was ready to meet with us any time of day. He could tell we wanted to two very different backdrops (a classy resort feel and a casual feel on the beach). He split our meetings over two days and spent a great deal of time. Towards the end, my fiance and I were tired but Jerry was still full of energy, still digging for the utmost perfect shot.
We have always been skeptical about taking our engagement pictures, mostly because we hate all the awkward posing and unnatural shots that many photographers force on couples. Jerry made us feel so comfortable and relaxed! We found ourselves laughing quite often from his great sense of humor. We are so happy with the way our pictures have turned out too! We are extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you. You were so accommodating and passionate about getting multiple photo-ops. Thank you!”

“Jerry was amazing. He got great shots without ever getting in the way or stealing focus, my family raved about how nice and fun he was when he was doing the posed shots of them we’d asked for, and while he has some wonderful ideas for pictures he was also really great about just rolling with what happened even if it wasn’t what was planned. We love him so much we rebooked him for our Maternity photos and first baby pictures of our daughter. We met him when he did our engagement photos and he’s not just our family photographer, he’s become a friend.“

“I don’t quite have adequate words to describe how incredible working with Jerry has been. I just got all the images from our wedding and I am completely blown away. I never imagined that each and every photo (of close to 2,000) would be so amazing!
Let me start by saying that we originally signed a contract with a different photographer…. and 5 weeks before our wedding, that photographer backed out because someone was willing to sign a contract at a higher rate… the heavens intervened and Jerry Giles was recommended by the photographer who was brushing us aside. I had done a TON of research on photographers prior to booking with the original, so I was very nervous about now having to start our search over. After a touching email from Jerry and reviewing his portfolio, I truly believed it was all meant to be and that he was even more qualified as our wedding photographer than the original.
Jerry went completely ABOVE AND BEYOND throughout our entire wedding, and even surprised us at the rehearsal the day before! I don’t think the man stopped to take a break or even eat the entire day! He was so energized and enthused to take photos of EVERYTHING that happened and he captured it all so beautifully! I’ve never seen photos that jump to life quite like his do! I was not expecting to have sooooo many amazing photos to choose from (and I’m a hard critic to please)! From the detail shots, to the posed photos, to the “in the moment” pics, they are all perfect! Such a high quality, perfectly edited and shot with such expertise! More than just providing great photography services, Jerry truly cared about us and making sure we were happy. It’s obvious how much he loves what he does!
Jerry gave us 200% during our wedding, and in the editing thereafter! 5 stars is not enough to give on this review. I could go on and on about how thrilled we are that HE was our photographer! I’m certain that another would not have compared!!“

“We planned our wedding from a distance and found Jerry Giles through his website and reviews. Starting with the first phone conversation with Jerry, we have been so impressed! We were very often laughing during our time together! His pictures turned out incredible and we couldn’t be happier with our experience with Jerry Giles!”
