I believe that when you do things with passion, magic happens!
PhotographyPhotographs freeze moments. My passion is to capture life's moments and monuments, large and small. I love being involved in the lives of people; showing personality through images is truly a privilege and enjoyment. I enjoy hearing peoples' stories and telling these stories through the camera. Photography is more than documentary, more than creative composition, it is the process of faithfully telling a compelling story. I am blessed to experience and share the stories of those embarking on a journey of togetherness. I believe in quality, timeless imagery. I have so much fun being behind the camera, but certainly with care. You can rest assured that your images are captured using high-level photographic equipment, secure, and backed up. You wouldn't compromise a thing on your wedding day - why would I?
My approachI approach weddings as a calm, supportive friend for the couple. I provide direction and posing when needed, but love to capture the wedding day as it unfolds to show the events of the day, decorations, beloved family and friends, and the couple's love for one another - all coming together to tell the story of the wedding day. I am an available light photographer- I love natural light and will use it 95% of the time, but have an assortment of lights available for the 5% of time natural light is not available- or for those indoor venues with tough lighting. (But please, at all costs, try to shoot outside or near windows!) I believe that as a photographer, it is my responsibility to know my equipment inside and out, and have a high level of technical knowledge. However, I believe this technical knowledge is nothing compared to capturing and conveying emotion, and telling a story through photographs. My goal is that my technical knowledge would be a tool to create imagery that shows emotion and tells a story. The way I edit enforces my philosophy and approach. I edit to enhance images in a timeless way to further convey the emotion in the photographs.

What do others have to say?
RAVESI LOVE honest feedback from people who I have had the pleasure of photographing
I would definitely recommend working with Jesse Hart Photography. Jesse was able to capture not only the style we were going for on our wedding day, but also some really special memories and moments too. He and his wife/assistant made everyone feel completely at ease and were a pleasure to work with. There were also very flexible throughout our wedding day, which took a lot of pressure off of me as the bride. It's really obvious that Jesse enjoys serving others through his photography and it shows in his work. Our wedding photos are beyond amazing.
There are no words for how grateful Jonathan and I are to Jesse for photographing our wedding! He traveled quite a distance and was genuinely excited for our happiness. He put us at ease and made our experience fun and energetic. We just received our photos and they truly are gorgeous and of the highest quality I could have hoped for. I was highly impressed with the ease of which he handled organizing and photographing our incredibly large families, and encouraged a calm and joyous atmosphere in the chaos of gathering so many people. I could not give a higher recommendation for a photographer. I am over joyed with the experience and our finished product. The photos will be our prized possession of the most important day of our lives, and captured our wedding flawlessly. I would not change a single thing of our experience with Jesse!
Recently I participated in a stylized shoot with my favorite bridal store Margene's Bridal - Boise (duh) and Jesse Hart Photography another (duh) from here on out. I am SO impressed with not only the gorgeous photos, but also that I feel like he captured who I am. I have almost 6 years of experience working with brides at Margene's. Over the years I have learned that what is most important is that every decision you make pertaining to your wedding, is choosing everything that most reflects who you are- make your special day about YOU. Great guy- great photos- great experience.
Jesse did such a wonderful job capturing my wedding day. He was very professional, came prepared, and captured every moment perfectly! My husband and I would highly recommend Jesse Hart Photography to capture any special day!
Jesse shot our wedding on June 7th of this year. He was absolutely incredible to work with. Professional, fun, confident, energetic and the list goes on. We had such a great experience working with him and his assistant. And last but not least the final prints were incredible. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else immortalizing our special day. Thank you Jesse Hart.
