About Jess

I've been a San Luis Obispo based wedding photographer for over a ten years, capturing the celebrations of head-over-heels in-love couples.

Fine-art with a twist

for the classic, romantic & funky

My work has a hint of fine-art with a focus on capturing the connection between my couples and the fun they had on their wedding day.


When you look at your photos, I want you to completely relive the best weekend of your lives. To remember the joy you felt being surrounded by all your favorite people. The excitement as you got ready. The cheers at your first kiss. The calm of your sunset portraits. And the wildness of the dance floor.

I Believe In

Family. Integrity. Commitment. Adventure. Hard work. Helping others. Self-care. Friends. Creativity. Beautiful light. Faith.

...And a great party.

What I'm known for

Brunch. Brunch. And more Brunch.
Dark floral dresses.
Hearty meals and 1-on-1 quality time.
My overly expressive face & bad handwriting.

Hazy IPAs & whisky sours.
Color-coded spreadsheets.

When I'm not at a wedding

(Pre-Covid of course) You can find me enjoying the Central Coast with friends & family: visiting local breweries & wineries, anywhere you can entertain a toddler & a baby, or hosting dinner & game night.
Also maybe at Target.


My solar-engineering husband, Andy, and I are Cal Poly SLO grads and college sweethearts. We got married in 2012 we’ve been enjoying the #SLOlife ever since. Bruce, our french bulldog is adored by all. In spring 2018, we became parents to a baby girl, Bishop, and in 2020 we welcomed her sister, Cabrillo (Bri). We named them after peaks in our local mountain range.

Why I'm different

and what it means for you

You'll still like your photos in 20 years.

My images match true-to-life colors. Green will look green.


Family photos are super important and don't intimidate me. I'll take as many or as few as you'd like.

we can be totally chill during photos.

Because I get super organized ahead of time with timelines and questionnaires..

your images will represent each of you.

My style reflects a blend of femininity and masculinity.

You Basically Gain a personal assistant.

I'm a helper and a problem solver. I get in there. I make stuff happen.

You'll have all the feels AND like the way you look in your photos.

I want you to feel your absolute best. I'll guide you if you need it.

Fun Facts

  • Raffi is climbing up the charts of my top listened to artists...thank you, parenthood
  • “Turn Down for What” will get me on the dance floor pretty much no matter what. Judge me. I don't care.
  • I’m an expat kid. I grew up going to international schools in Southeast Asia, an experience I wouldn’t change for anything. Especially since it’s how I met these lovely ladies:
