Well if you have followed this blog or the Jacob Mariano blog you will notice some changes. Whitecloud has been a business name I have used for my video productions. I have used this name for 6 years now and have done dozens of jobs through it. I developed the identity for Whitecloud and invested a lot of time and money into building it into what it is today. However, since I graduated with my B.A. in Graphic Design & Marketing, I have also invested my energy into developing my own name as a business identity.

Since name recognition is huge in the business I am in and in an effort to consolidate my businesses, I have decided to do all photography and design work under the name: Jacob Mariano Photography+Design. If you are used to visiting, you may want to re-bookmark my blog to as the Whitecloud blog will no longer be updated.

On the new blog we will post mostly photography from weddings, families, seniors, and businesses. Although you will also see any design work I am working on.

I also find it notable to mention that my wife Jessica is big part of what we do. We photography most everything together so the images you see on this blog may be from either one of us. Generally it is about 50/50.

Thanks for faithfully view this blog and leaving your comments/feedback/input, it has meant a lot. Please continue to do the same on our new blog

Rachel and Michael Smith live in beautiful Point Loma, San Diego. We made plans to do a shoot with them, so Michael, on his semi-daily surf routine, looked around for a good spot. Lo and behold we ended up shooting at a grassy knoll overlooking the ocean. Such a beautiful place to take pictures of such beautiful people. I picked out a few of my favs from the day, although there were heaps of goods to choose from. Hope you all enjoy and as always feel free to leave your thought on the photos in the comments section. Be blessed.

Rachel and Michael we love you both and thanks for letting us stay with you and snaps some shots.

The other day Jessica and I spent the later part of the evening shooting Adriana and Joe. We had a fun time and will be displaying their images at the upcoming Bridal Expo at the San Bernardino Fairgrounds in Victorville Jan 24-25. See you there!

We love you Adriana and Joe!

After seven years of marriage Tom and Katie Bacon finally have wedding-esc photos. Tom and Katie didn't get to have a traditional wedding with the wedding dress, tux, and flowers so we were excited that we had the chance to recreate the love they shared for each other on that day and still feel now. As usual we have posted an abundance of images, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy! We love you TomKat.

Well, as some of you know who live in the area or keep up with High Desert weather, we had the biggest snow in a couple decades. It was pretty crazy. Although now, almost a week later, it has almost all melted we still enjoyed the change of pace in weather and took advantage of my day off from work. Here are a few shots of us enjoying the snow...later I'll post some shots of our yard and driveway (which had 2 LARGE trees fall across it). Merry Christmas!
