  • Jake is the best. For starters, he has an amazing eye and takes vibrant and stunning photos.  We love our wedding album and actually look at it because the photos are so great and bring back such wonderful memories.  He gives guidance when helpful but also allows for a lot of serendipity and spontaneity to capture moments with personality.  He has a relaxed and confident demeanor that helps others let down their guard and get the best, most natural feeling shots.  Our wedding day was very hot and he went on a trek with us through humid botanical gardens to get stunning natural backdrops.  He is a trooper!  We can't wait to work with him again for special occasions in the future.

  • We had the best experience with Jake! He did a great job capturing so many wonderful shots of us, our family, and our friends on the wedding day. He made my husband I feel comfortable taking our portraits, and they turned out beautifully. He was great at capturing our essence as a couple and the natural beauty of our venue. He blended right in with our guests and got so many great shots. He and his co-photographer were very professional, friendly, and talented. And we got our pictures back very quickly. I absolutely highly recommend him!!!

  • Our experience with Jake was fantastic from start to finish! He was very responsive when we first reached out and was flexible in offering the package we wanted at a reasonable price. I didn't have spend much time communicating with him leading up to the wedding for him to understand our goals - what overall aesthetic we preferred in our photos, and what we were actually looking for on the day of. Jake arrived promptly and jumped right into it, finding the perfect lighting and backdrops. During the ceremony he was very discreet (as far as I could tell - I wasn't distracted by a camera but we have proof that he was there!), and afterwards he zipped us through the posed photos (as we requested) so we could get right into celebrating with our guests. We requested mostly candid photos capturing the fun of our wedding, and he delivered! Many guests commented that he was absolutely everywhere during the reception, and the 1100+ pictures confirm that! We received our photos from Ja... Read more

  • Jake and his second shooter did an amazing job at capturing all of the moments I wanted at my wedding. With 220 people he still managed to get photos of all of my guests and he was very flexible dealing with rain, delays, and all sorts of obstacles that day. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding or other special event. Great team with a great attitude.

  • We are so happy we went with Courage & Co.! My husband and I always feel awkward in front of the camera, but not so with Jake. He immediately made us feel comfortable and we could not be more pleased with the photos he took of our special day. From the first emails and meeting to the contact after the wedding, Jake has been friendly, helpful, and professional. His work is incredible; definitely take the time to check out his website and look at his portfolio. Jake caught all of the special moments and was a complete sweetheart to have hang out with our family and friends and capture the memories. You seriously can't go wrong, book him!

  • We had an absolute blast working with Jake! We instantly fell in love with his style and could not be happier with the results of our wedding photos. He is personable and efficient and was great at getting us out of our shells and making us feel comfortable. One thing that amazed me was how many great moments he captured during our reception and we never even realized he was there. I've been to other weddings where it feels like the photographer is in your face all nice but Jake has this uncanny ability of getting into the action without distracting you from it. Jake also has incredibly quick turnaround. I hear horror stories of people waiting months for the photos but Jake managed to get them to us in a matter of days. He even went above an beyond and brought us a thumb drive of our wedding photos when we were having trouble getting the file to transfer. Several members of our wedding party commented on how much fun he was to work with. We were very pleased with his services!

  • Courage & Co did an amazing job for our engagement photos, and we're so excited to work with them on our big day. Jake really knows how to provide cues for poses, and he's extremely easy to work with, as well as super responsive. We love our photos so much, and couldn't have done it without Jake's great eye and direction. Worth every penny.

  • We had Jake do our engagement photos, and not only did they turn out incredible, he was so easy to work with! He is very kind and attentive and provides a sense of ease and comfort. We have booked him for our wedding as well, and I have no doubt in my mind that experience will be just as amazing

  • We were so lucky to have Jake from Courage & Co come down to Florida to photograph our wedding. We had worked with Jake previously on some family photos and he was amazing at our wedding as well! He was professional but also so much fun to work with and helped us get some amazing shots. Everyone in my bridal party and our families was raving about how well he worked with us to get the photos we wanted. I don't even know how he got some of the photos we have because it seems like he would have had to be in 10 places at once - but that's just part of his magic. He has a way of making everyone in the room feel calm and comfortable, and the results show in our photos. I cannot say enough good things about Jake and his skills and I only hope we get the chance to work with him again in the future!

  • So very pleased with Jake as the photographer at my daughter’s wedding—could not have asked for anyone better! In fact, my sister just hired him for her daughter’s wedding next year—that’s the best testimonial right there! He is someone you want to keep in the family for photographing all your special events—he makes it seem effortless and natural...as if he’s just one of us! I’m recommending him to anyone in need of a photographer...you’re the best at what you do Jake!! Thank you!!

  • Jake was wonderful, both leading up to the wedding and on the day of. He did a great job of putting people at ease, and he really got some great pictures. The pictures were ready way faster than I expected, and I was SO impressed with the quality! I have nothing negative to say about him - he was responsive, professional, friendly and just incredibly talented. My cousin hired him for her wedding next summer after seeing how great he was at our wedding. I highly recommend using Courage & Co. for anything and everything!

  • I'm almost at a loss for words when I think of Jake's contribution to our engagement and wedding. In fact, we haven't stopped hearing about him from nearly all of our guests. From the first few email exchanges, to the engagement photos, all the way up until the big day, he was nothing short of perfect in just about every way. Jake has a natural eye not only for great composition, but also capturing his client's personalities and the mood/atmosphere of each location. He has that magic ability to make everyone feel at ease in front of the camera and his enthusiasm is quite infectious. On top of that, in the typically chaotic swirl of a wedding-day, Jake is a force of calm, adapting to each scenario with ease and helping to organize group shots with an amazing degree of patience. I've also had the chance to work with Jake in the professional sphere as well, shooting on-location portraits for some print ads. His skills translate to this setting as well. After we were done, our camer... Read more

  • We had Jake photograph our intimate wedding ceremony and could not have been happier with the quality of the pictures. Not only is his work outstanding but he makes you feel at ease in front of the camera, which is very important if you are camera shy like we are. He captured the feeling of the day with a wide range of images and a special talent for finding sweet, candid moments in between more formal shots. We are completely in love with our wedding pictures and our family and friends can't stop gushing about how beautiful they are!
