Established in 2017.

Our business originated when we (Jake & Christina) were married (2014). We had both been extremely creative and had a passion for putting our creativity to good work. 

Christina would offer her services as a professional photographer. I, Jake, would then use my editing prowess to make one of a kind masterpieces. 

Over time we both grew in our knowledge and skill behind the lens and began taking photos together, then sitting down with a cup of joe and pouring hours into editing. 

As a married couple, we want to have a common goal, something we can fight for and pour our blood sweat and tears into, together... This is why we formed Gleimlight Photography. 

Our love, passion, and time are poured into our work and we hope to continue sharing these wonderful experiences with you and your family.

Photography is our passion. We love working together, meeting new people, building relationships and creating stunning artwork. We treat photography as a form of art, not just a service we perform. Creating something unique and stunning is what we live for.

How did you get started in this business?

Between Christina and myself we have a decade of experience in photography. We wanted to pursue a career path together and work together to build a brand and name for ourselves and lean on each other to create stunning images and one of a kind artwork. 

We are both dreamers and know that Gleimlight Photography is our path way to the stars. It's not about being famous or making money but spreading our work and sharing our joy and love with the world. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

Law offices, models, average joes, difficult families, you name it. I (Jake) have been in the sales and customer service industry all of my life and have managed many service departments. I bring a business ethic to the table that many photographers are missing. This is artwork but it is operated as a business and money is being transacted. It is only fair to our clients that we treat these transactions with the utmost importance and professionalism. 

What advice would you give a customers looking to hire a vendor in your area of expertise?

You are unique right?

Look for someone that is willing to take the risk. Being traditional is always something a photographer should be able to do but they need to break out of the mold. 

You also need to find a photographer who is professional. My wife and I hired a "not so pro" photographer due to budget reasons for engagement photos. Unfortunately 5 years later we still do not have the photos. You need a photographer who is background checked, has a strong T&C policy and powerful commitments that they can uphold. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to vendors about their needs?

Customers need to consider image quantity/quality. My wife and I understand the importance of photographers as we paid quite a large sum when hiring our wedding photographer (thanks to my in-law's donation). 

We ended up having 563 wedding photos. Are they special? Not so much. Very nice photos and the photographers were amazingly talented and very professional. However, it inspired me to change things up. I felt it would be better to take less than half the images they did, but make them far more artistic, far more powerful. Take more time staging and composing and less time snapping a bunch of photos. 

When asking your vendor questions, ask questions centered around quality as you'll never frame 563 photos so make sure that your shots count.
