First things first- Congratulations on your engagement!
Once you’ve decided that everlasting memories for your wedding day are a priority, like most couples, it can be daunting trying to find the right person to share it with you.
The first step to finding the right photographer for your big day is to find someone you can be comfortable around. I work closely with couples, getting to know what really makes them unique and special, so I can look for and identify those little details that will make their wedding photos special and distinctive. If you’re a goofy couple, that is exactly what I hone in on, or if you’re romantic and affectionate, that is what I want to document. My job is making the photos about YOU- making sure your personalities shine bright. My goal is to come to the wedding feeling like a friend, and I encourage a relaxed and comfortable environment. I want people to look at their photos and feel that I captured not only the pretty ‘formal’ photos, but also feel that I documented the emotion and charm that is exactly you. Every couple has something so perfectly special about them- I want to discover yours and capture that.
“The most important thing I took away from my wedding (besides a husband) was memories, and the day was such a blur most of memories are reconstructed from Jess’s absolutely stunning photographs. She captured moments that make smile, me tear up, and laugh out loud. Jess managed to document my entire day in such beauty and without being intrusive on delicate moments. More than just documenting the day, she honed in on the character of our wedding–of our friends, family, and us.”
– Carolyn V.
While I’m your photographer, and there to do this job that I love, know that I am as excited about your big day as you are! I’m very invested in my clients. I want to know all of the fun details- what your dress looks like, what flowers you picked, and your overall vision of your wedding. Long after the food and flowers are gone, your wedding photographs will be with you, forever reminding you of your celebration of love. I use my knowledge and experience to take the best shots possible, leaving you free to just enjoy your day.
I book a limited amount of weddings per year. The best thing you can do is contact me as soon as possible, so we can meet and talk, and I can get your special day marked on my calendar, with a big heart around it. I love what I do. Truly love.It. I limit the number of weddings I do to be sure that I walk into each and every wedding I photograph excited and inspired, and never burned out or tired. This also allows me to dedicate the attention needed to your wedding.
I offer the option of a second shooter as well, to gain twice the perspective, and make sure that we don’t miss a thing. If you choose this option, you’ll be getting even more photographs and different angles. It removes many of the limitations encountered when you rely on one photographer to catch every moment of your love and your guests. And the best part is, it lets us catch things from both sides, so we can document those most important moments, when each of you says “I do”, and when you’re finally allowed that first kiss with your new spouse.
