Jake, a Wilsonville High School Alumni, is a brilliant Oregon based photographer who has previously shot many theater productions at Wilsonville as well as tons of Wilsonville Seniors and acapella groups.
Jake confided, “I would say the reason why I’m so passionate about photography is that it can bring so much joy to people. I really try to work with anyone I can, even if they don’t have the budget for it. Everyone deserves to have at least one nice photo of themselves. I think that’s really important. “If you check out his Instagram @Jaketheyoung I promise you’ll fall in love with his unique Senior portraits and for more of his work, take a look at his blog https://jakeyoungphotography.com
Cormac Lister, a Wilsonville Senior, took his senior photos with Jake and gave me some insight about his shoot day. “It was nice and sunny, and we were near the water. Jake already had a great idea of good spots for pictures, and how they might look. All I had to do was pose, and he did all the leg work, made the day super easy and super fun!” Cormac also shared why he would recommend Jake. “He comes well prepared, he is nice and makes you feel comfortable, he is great with angles, editing, and locations, and he was great at giving any ideas I had life!”
