Who we are
We are a OC Wedding Photographer husband and wife team ( Jesse and Emi) and are parents to soccer loving picky eaters who keep us on our toes 24/7. We are theatre lovers by night but also love to curl up and watch movies with popcorn when we are not out shooting weddings and events. We have a passion for travel, film, Peruvian food and sunsets. I am honored to be a part of your wedding day when you and those you love celebrate your commitment to each other. We respect the moment, we respect you and we want to capture your story beautifully so you will cherish this day for generations to come.

THE EARLY YEARS
Jesse Madison grew up in Lake Forest, CA and became passionate about photography at an early age. In his early years he traveled often through Europe and South America. This provided opportunity for Jesse to shoot extensively. Starting in 2002 Jesse began shooting interiors as a real estate broker. This is where he began to learn more about exposure and lighting techniques. As a result of marketing experience Jesse also became proficient in the use of Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Premiere Pro and other editing software.
Now as an OC Wedding Photographer he seeks to implement the most effective lighting techniques. He also applies the newest photographic editing techniques to ensure your images meet the highest standards. Now, while using graphic design skills and editing techniques and combining them with Photography, Jesse has enhanced the quality of the photos he produces. With the advent of digital photography, a successful photographer must not only be a master of the camera but also the software that will take your images to the next level and set them apart from the competition.
Jesse shoots on both location and does studio photography. He provides enhanced lighting with soft boxes, beauty dishes and other off camera flash techniques. He is passionate about his craft and seeks to capture special moments in a special and uniquely beautiful way.
