Meet Jess

Hi! I'm Jess, a San Luis Obispo based wedding photographer capturing the celebrations of head-over-heels in-love couples with a passion for gorgeous creative details and stunning locations. I’d describe my images as fine-art with a twist. My work has a hint of editorial 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 remember what it was like to be there. 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. Authenticity. Commitment. Adventure. Hard work. Helping others. Self-care. Friends. Creativity. Beautiful light. Faith. Pretty things

...And a great party.

Fun Facts

  • Raffi is climbing up the charts of my top listened to artists...thank you, parenthood
  • My solar engineer hubby Andy home brews (and has been rockin’ the brew-beard since before it was cool)
  • I’m obsessed with spreadsheets. (Is it possible to be type-A and a messy creative?? Ummm yassss)
  • 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:

When I'm not at a wedding

When I’m not at a wedding, you can find me enjoying the Central Coast with friends & family: visiting local breweries & wineries, anywhere you can entertain a toddler, or hosting dinner & game night. Also maybe at Target.


Andy and I are Cal Poly SLO grads and college sweethearts. I moved back home to Orange County after graduation. Fast forward through 3 years of long distance, I came back to SLO in 2012 as a newlywed. And we’ve been enjoying the #SLOlife ever since. We adore our French bulldog, Bruce. And in spring 2018, we became parents to our pride and joy, a baby girl, Bishop Rose.
