HEYYY! My name is Jason Verdin, and I’m incredibly excited that you’re here reading about me. That means you’re probably trying to get to know me and see if I’m the right fit for you. Here are some things about me: I’m happily married to my wife (Claira) and we have three kids (Logan, Evylyn, and Willow). Our first “child” is our 8 year old golden doodle pup, Boomer (we named him before OK Boomer was a thing). I love coffee, movies, music, film photography, working out, marathon running, community, and home cooked meals. I’m a people person. Although I can be a pretty social introvert, getting to know new people and their stories are what drive me.
My time spent as a high school English teacher immensely helped out my wedding photography career. For 10+ years, I stood in front of teenagers putting on 45 minute one man shows to engage other people. All of that time I spent wrangling teenagers and getting them to do work helps me out when I’m directing your wedding party for photos! I love being a teacher, and I loved teaching literature because I got to dive into the stories that drive everyone. My passion and my hope is to capture your story and what drives you.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing engagements + weddings for the past decade, and I love growing with my couples photographing major life milestones with them: engagements, weddings, maternity, new borns, and family photos. It’s a testament to their confidence in my ability to photograph them, and the bond that I create with the people I meet on one of the best days of their lives.
BEHIND THE BUSINESS
This is us. No not the never ending flashback series on NBC, but this is my family. They are why I work as hard as I do. Claira, my wife, and our three kids, Logan, Evylyn, and Willow, are my world. I have balanced two careers while I learn and attempt to be the best husband and father possible. Not only are you supporting a small business, but you are also supporting my family.
