Hello!

My name is Jacob and I recently moved to San Juan Puerto Rico and I'm excited to bring you on my experience!

I'm a photographer, filmmaker, and musician with 6 years of experience in portrait photography. I grew up in Hawai'i and have a passion for learning the history of each place I live.

I love to pour over documentaries and history textbooks to uncover the full story of a place and use that in my photography and other forms of art.

This tour was perfect. Jacob have a history lesson at each location we stopped at and was very patient with me and my friends. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and took us to all of the perfect picture spots. I can’t recommend this tour enough, you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Jacob was a total professional and photos turned out amazingly! Can be hard to wrangle a toddler but he was so patient and made us feel comfortable just being ourselves for some great candid family shots!
