Welcome to my world

Creating memories for life... one image at a time.

I first moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1999, being from South Africa and having lived all over the world in places like Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Israel. I would be there first to admit that I was a bit of a vagrant. In fact, one a friend once described me to another person as "The guy that travels around the world with a camera and a skateboard..."

Once I got to South Lake Tahoe, I was blown away by the beauty and the culture that is all around us here .I spent my first 10 years in Lake Tahoe photographing action sports and working with various ski resorts in the area, as well as snowboard and ski companies. I loved the adventure that living in this beautiful place provided as well as the passion of the people here.

After a while I transitioned to wedding and portrait photography and I loved the new challenges and opportunities that provided. I loved meeting new couples and getting to share in their lives.

For a few years my family relocated to the DFW area in Texas and here is where I fell in love with wedding photography, particularly the diverse cross section of cultures and locations that I got to work in. I particularly enjoyed photographing "cross cultural" weddings, having worked with Indian, Ethipian, Nigerian as well as Vietnamese and Egyptian couples. What  AMAZING experiences those were!!!!

Being back in South Lake Tahoe has given new meaning to my motto “Inspiration for life…”

In all my photography, I strive to let that be a central theme, capturing life and capturing moments that will cause one to look back and be inspired to live more, to love more and appreciate those moments that made it all worthwhile.

My photography is a mix between spontaneous and editorial as I love to showcase the natural beauty of the area combined with dramatic lighting and elegant poses and settings that bring out that ‘wow’ shot that every bride needs.

I look forward to being a part of your day, creating friendships in the process, not just clients. 
I know that Jorik Blom Photography will be able to capture your day beautifully.
