Working with Jesse and his team was amazing. They made the entire day stress free and fun! Not only were they amazing people to have around, but my wedding video is TO DIE for. Leading up to getting the video, Jesse sent me small clips from the day, to make sure I liked the footage, music, etc. Each one was better than the next. The full video (which we received so fast!) had everything we wanted. It captured the essence of the ENTIRE day and brought us through so many different emotions. When they asked us what we wanted, we said we wanted it to feel very authentic and real. Jesse and his team did just that. I would recommend them to ANY and EVERY one. It was an absolute pleasure working with them!!!

Jesse did me the honor of photographer my then 11 week old son. While my son was not cooperative at all, Jesse was really patient. Jesse is also very open to opinion and direction which I LOVE. Other photographers I’ve worked with are pushy and are set in their ways as far as set up, staging and posing/positioning. They’re also always rushing. Anyways, all of this to say, I would absolutely hire Jesse again. 100% recommend.

I have had the opportunity to meet Jesse personally in 2009 and have seen him evolve since the early days of his career. I have also had the opportunity to work with him personally in later years. He is a dedicated and passionate individual who delivers a great product without much hassle. Jesse can easily grasp the client’s needs and can contribute to improve the vision of the client to deliver a first-class product. I have recommended him to contacts abroad needing some help in New York City because I know he can deliver a quality product for demanding and fast paced clients.

I have had the pleasure of supervising Jesse Ovalles as a student in my multimedia production classes in high school. As a junior at Sleepy Hollow High School in New York, Jesse was a leader of my website team that built and launched www.sleepyhollowhits.com. His computer, graphical, animation, video production and teamwork skills were an integral part in the creation of this website. A month later the website earned the international recognition by Adobe as the site of the day on January 25th 2007.

As a senior, Jesse represented the student production team in Chicago at the Adobe MAX Convention. He interacted with professionals from all over the world and was quickly treated as a peer. His high level of skill and personal leadership was responsible for the group’s greatest accomplishment. In October 2007, the team received the Adobe MAX Honorable Mention Award for the creation of the DVD, the 2007 Digital Yearbook, and the website, www.sleepyhollowhits.com. This was an international honor that compared his team’s work with over 600 professional organizations from 30 countries. Jesse accepted the honor on behalf of the team. His team placed behind the finalists from NASA Space Agency and Homeland Security.

Jesse’s internships and experiences at Syracuse University have allowed him to grow into a mature and skillful new media creator. He is an accomplished talent with great potential. I would highly recommend Jesse for any multimedia position.
