About Ryan 

My name is Ryan "Jake" Jakubowski and I am now the proud parent of a beautiful baby boy, Carlo, born on August 1st, 2017. Along with my son, I have an amazing wife, Laura,  who inspires me everyday and is always very supportive of my photography. The passion for my photography originally started as a hobby, when I was a teenager, but has since grown into so much more.


I love not only taking pictures of amazing people in their element but also of Mother Nature and abandoned places around Michigan and the US.  With 15+ years of experience in the field, I started J&C Photography to give back my skills to the community and allow people to remember the precious moments in their life. Other than my wife and son, photography is the reason I wake up every morning, to produce the pictures that no one else can and give my clients an experience they will remember.
