JRD Photography was started by Jace in 1985 while in high school.
Jace was "exposed" to photography in 1977 and quickly he became addicted to it taking his cameras everywhere he went all over the east coast of the US with his dad.
In 1982, at age 12, he acquired his first SLR camera and the rest is history!
Jace did his first wedding at 15 and knew that weddings were going to be among his favorite 3 things to photograph, other than children and fashion.
Having shot weddings pretty much all over the world, he has seen many things and brings a great creative edge to his style from over 32 years with a camera in his hand. He likes to say he eats, breathes, and dreams photography.
His wedding style is a mixture of flavors.
Photojournalism/Editorial and Fashion. He loves to take each wedding as a new experience and discover all about the bride and groom and bring their love to pictures the way it was meant to be felt.
Other than weddings, he loves to photograph children of all ages from the delivery room to the stadium on graduation! Creating personalities from the beginning to the day they go off to make it in the world.
