Elevating emotion INTO LIFELONG art

Your wedding is a time to remember the things that matter most: each other, the people you love, and the chance to celebrate both. I'll help you do just that in a way that remains intentional and true to you.

enriching your memories

Hi, I’m Jess

You two are equal partners who are celebrating a wedding day full of details you both care about. I always take care to spend time with both of you, individually and together. To fully tell the story of this day, with these people, in this unforgettable place.


One day, this will all be a golden memory. But your photography helps it feel just a little bit more colorful. It helps you remember all the small details and big emotions you shared.

Consider this the art of expertly crafted images that preserve a time, a place, and a feeling.

"She captured our personalities in every picture"

"She made people laugh, she made everyone feel beautiful, and the entire time she was just so relaxing to have around. She made sure to capture moments I would have forgotten otherwise. I can’t imagine having anyone else there to capture such a special day."

— Melissa & Kylle

Providing guidance when you need it

Stepping back when you don’t

This is your time to savor, to revel, to relish in every interaction. With keen awareness and skill, I’ll give you a suggested posing prompt when needed and won't interfere when the moment is already unfolding naturally. I always create my photo timelines with these moments in mind and you never have to guess what comes next or how best to pose.

As every couple is different, the experience I provide is custom, but the level of service remains the same — personal, reliable and focused on your values.
