Hi, I'm Jason Checkla.

I'm a professional wedding, family, event and pet photographer located in Queensbury, NY. Queensbury is conveniently located just a few miles south of Lake George. I've been helping families capture memories since I moved to this area 12 years ago.

I hope you found my website because you love my photography. With that said, I've always held the belief that anyone with enough technical experience can produce a nice photograph. What's more important is that you are happy with your photographer on a both professional and personal level. Please check out the Frequently Asked Questions page on my site to learn more about my approach to photography!

Needless to say, I strive to deliver on that promise with every shoot. Let's work together and create some memories that you can (literally) hold onto forever. Speaking of which, that's my beautiful wife, Stephanie, in the photo with me -- she often joins me to assist on shoots.

“Recently I proposed to my now fiancé and having a photographer was extremely important to me. I reached out to Jason 5 days before...and he immediately started to help me plan everything out.
I gave Jason my vision and he exceeded my expectations. He was not controlling whatsoever and contributed so many great ideas.

I looked at and spoke with a lot of photographers before him but his personality and drive to make my night as special as possible is what grabbed my attention.”
