About Erin & Jake

EDJR5630_web.jpg

We are Erin & Jake Photography, a husband and wife photography duo located in Los Angeles, California.

Our journey together began in 2009 when Erin moved back to Los Angeles from Northern California. Introduced through a close friend, and instantly bonded over our mutual love for photography, travel, adventure and art. Inseparable ever since we formed Erin & Jake Photography in 2010 and when our itch for adventure inspired us, we eloped to Las Vegas in 2013.

 

Our approach to photography as a team:

Photography allows us to create art rooted in reality. This enables us to create art out of moments that would otherwise blend into the past, unnoticed. Inspiration comes in all forms when specializing in such a wide range of photography genres. Above all, we are inspired most by the beauty in movement, the mood of clean lines in tandem with elegant symmetry, and the endless ways we can artistically manipulate light.

Running a client-friendly, service-oriented business, we believe that great creativity is often the result of a cohesive team effort; therefore, we value working closely with our clients as well as each other. Whether working a wedding, head shots, concerts, fashion shoot or event, we approach every project with the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm.

 

Thank you for visiting Erin & Jake Photography! We look forward to working with you soon!

Erin Delsigne

Lead Photographer, Videographer

I am Erin Delsigne, a professional photographer based in Los Angeles. I received education from Humboldt State University and Cal State Long Beach; studying Photojournalism, Black and White film, digital and commercial photography. To me, Humboldt County is one of the most beautiful and magical places on earth. I was lucky enough to call it home while I studied in college. On the first day of class, my professor handed me a film camera, which was beaten to hell over the many years the school equipment had been in circulation. I was in AWE, and to be honest, still not even sure why!

 

With the characteristic variety of mood and tone, my photographs organically combine the sensitivity and vulnerability of my subjects, while aiming to bring out their often uninhibited and expressive personalities. I favor the realism of natural light, but am dazzled by the unlimited options and control that artificial light gives me in a studio.

In addition to digital photography, I also work with 35mm film, SX-70 polaroid film, 120mm expired film, both color and black and white, using various film cameras. Running a client-friendly, service-oriented business, I believe that great creativity is often the result of team effort; therefore, I value working closely with my clients as well as my partner, and husband, Jake Roach.

 

Whether working a wedding, fashion shoot or any other event, I (or we) approach every project with the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm.

Jake Roach

Photographer - Videographer - Drone Pilot

I started working for Spyder Surfboards as the manager of their online retail store in 1999. One of my responsibilities was photographing all of the clothing and various products as they arrived in the store and preparing the images for the website.

 

I was raised in Hermosa Beach, California and worked about a hundred yards from the pier.I often found myself on the beach after work until well after sunset, shooting hundreds of photographs with hope that one of them would somehow tell my story better than the rest. It was then that I discovered a powerful connection between the world, my camera and me. It was as if my camera helped me to appreciate the beauty and artistry surrounding me that I had previously taken for granted. I began to look at the world through my viewfinder…

 

The most inspiring part of photography is finding and capturing what are seemingly unspectacular moments in time and reveal them to be candid and timeless portraits of people, places and events.My passion is to take photographs which inspire me, no matter the subject. It could be the lines and symmetry created by a downtown skyline. It could be a macro shot showing the details and texture of a water drop, or traveling a long distance to take a long-exposure of a waterfall in the forest. It could be catching a special look from a mother to her son on his wedding day, or capturing photos of an undiscovered and talented band or musician.
