We had such an amazing experience working with Jess! From the time my fiancé and I first connected with Jess, she was super friendly and helpful. She went above and beyond providing different recommendations and even lists to help plan a seamless wedding day. Even with our time zones being different, she was quick to respond and was great at communicating. She did our engagement photos when it was convenient for us (2 days before our wedding day) and was open for an adventure even on short notice! Then the day of our wedding, Jess already had our engagement photos printed for us to have on display. Jess beat me to my own wedding and was in high spirits prepared for a long day! She asked what was important to us to capture on our day and by far over delivered. By the end of the night my husband and I found ourselves hanging out with Jess more than some of our family and friends.

Her expertise and professionalism are portrayed through her pictures and she has a super talent of capturing raw emotions and realism. Aside from her incredible work, her personality also makes working with her even more amazing. From the initial phone consultation, Jess felt like a friend that I just called to chat with and when she came to "work" it was like we have known her forever. During our session, it never felt like we were just a 'job' for her. She was having fun, we we're having fun. We chatted and carried on conversations that were not just related to her taking our photos, but still remained professional. Jess even brought some hair supplies and did my hair. She spent the whole day with us and captured our elopement perfectly-- just us, all raw, all real.

Jess is WAY MORE than just a photographer. Jess is an amazingly kind human being who truly cares about her clients. She goes above and beyond to help make every single part of your wedding journey perfect. She helped us to plan our wedding timeline down to the smallest details, and on wedding day when things didn’t go as planned, she didn’t hesitate to do what was needed to ensure we got everything we wanted on our special day. Her humor and genuine personality makes taking photos extremely comfortable and fun AND the best part is you never have to wonder or worry about how your photos will come out because they are always GORGEOUS!!! Jess goes above and beyond and her talent deserves to be seen by everyone.
