New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Photographer | Jesse Rinka New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Photographer | Jesse Rinka


Hi there!  My name is Jesse Rinka, owner of Jesse Rinka Photography and one of the luckiest men you will ever meet. Why? Because unlike so many others, I am blessed with the opportunity to wake up each and every day and do what I truly love for a living.  It's an amazing blessing made possible by those closest to me...especially my wife Maria (pictured above) who is my rock and number one supporter along with my two sons. I've got a huge responsibility to set a great example for my kids and that's my motivation to be the best that I can be.  Second only to my family, photography is my life.  

So why are you different from the next photographer Jesse?  Why should I consider hiring you instead of someone else? Honestly, my answer to that question is short and to the point (although not really).  Because I care.  The truth is, there are many of us out there who are capable of taking a great photograph.  Thanks to amazing advances in technology, everyone seems to have an amazing camera at their disposal.  I see it at every wedding nowadays.  The difference is that I genuinely care about so much more than just the photographs themselves.  This is not about's about you.  I care about your overall experience well before, during and after the time you or your loved ones spend even one second in front of my camera.  I care about your interests, your passions, what gets you excited when you wake up in the morning.  It all matters to me, because I am not the photographer that never wants to see you again.  I want to become a permanent part of your life.  I want to be the guy who you can trust to deliver whenever you have a photographic need.  I want to be the guy you can't wait to tell your closest friends and family about when they are looking for a great photography experience.  I love what I do and being able to share that joy through the experience that I strive to provide is everything to me.

So what kind of work do you do Jesse?  I specialize in Weddings, Portraits and Events but will never limit myself to just these genres.  I love to engage in projects outside of the norm so please reach out if you have an awesome idea to consider.  For interested bridal clients, my shooting style can be best described as traditional/romantic with some contemporary flair mixed in. For more information on how I may be able to assist you with your photographic needs, send a detailed message via the contact page and I will be sure to respond as soon as possible. I can't wait to meet and work with you.
