Pictures say a thousand words...
Still, it is our great pleasure to "complete the picture" by sharing Our Story.
J&E Photography is a family owned and operated local photography company located in Sarasota, Florida.
Previously known as J. Contreras Photography, J&E simply reflects the complete definition of what WE are truly about. A husband and wife operation that are a nothing short of an amazing and loving team, inspired to provide the ABSOLUTE BEST experience for our clients.
My story is that of a young Venezuelan artist that traveled to the United States at the age of 17, with $500 in his pocket, a camera and a backpack full of a relentless passion for adventure.
Completed studies at the State College of Florida in Business and later continued studies in Photography.
My passion? taking amazing photographs.
My fuel? the memories created that will be worth framing and putting up on a wall, to be forever remembered.
For me, it's all about family and loyalty. I was born and raised right here in Sarasota, FL and graduated from USF in Hospitality with a minor in Business.
I love helping people and making friends for life.
I've found a dear passion for creating lasting memories while being able to live an active social life; building this company with my husband has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done and nothing makes me more happy than to see what we can do together to create amazing photos and experiences that will last a lifetime.
