About Jeff

The work of wedding photographer Jeff Newsom.  San Luis Obispo - California - Planet Earth.

I believe the best way to introduce myself and share my love for this job is to do it through photos of my family.  I've never been much for words, so it was a revelation to discover the volume I could speak through my photographs.

This is my crazy family.  My wife Kim, my oldest son Everett, and my youngest son Conley.  I adore each of them with every fiber of my being.

Kim is living proof that I make very good decisions.  We have been married for 12 years as of May 2015.  She has always been my best friend and she is the constant variable that makes my life so wonderful.

Each of my boys took on one of my two strongest defining characteristics.  Everett shares my curiosity and Conley shares my independence.

Everett Scott is the best big brother in the world.  He is and has always been the happiest kid.  He is constantly trying to understand how everything in the world works.  He and I share an endless fascination for the unknown.

Conley Hoss was born during a very challenging part of our lives.  He was born 6 weeks early and has always been a tiny-sized human.  His smile has great power and he knows it.  Conley not only wants to do everything himself, he wants to do it in his own strange way.  It doesn't always make sense.  He is just like his daddy :)

While both Everett and Conley are individually and uniquely awesome, together they form a Voltron of Awesomeness.

I have gone through many stages in my life, from young artist to competitive gamer to traveling musician to aspiring physicist.  The moment I got my first camera was the moment that everything became clear.  I was built for this.  I am in love with this art and I strive to break new ground and keep things moving forward.  I am more interested in making a statement than fitting in.  I have discovered I have a strong ability to capture 'who' people are beyond just 'what' they are doing.  I am inspired.  Let's take photos together that change the world.
