About Jess

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

Fine-art with a twist

for the classic, romantic & funky

When you look at your photos, you'll relive the best weekend of your lives. You'll remember 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.


and what it means for you

Guiding when you need it, stepping back when you don’t. I always guide you through your photography—you never have to guess what comes next or how best to pose. I’ll help you relax into your photography with prompts and easy instructions to create those editorial images you love so much. But I also make sure to never interrupt a moment. The most important thing on your wedding day is to be present. So I’ll step back when the moment calls for it and always create my photo timelines with natural moments in mind.

My images match true-to-life colors and reflect a mix of digital and film



We get super organized ahead of time so you can give yourself the freedom to be fully present in every moment and let me handle the rest.

My solar-engineering hubby, Andy, and I are Cal Poly SLO grads and college sweethearts. We got married in 2012 and we’ve been enjoying the #SLOlife ever since. Bruce, our french bulldog is adored by all. We're parents to two precious little girls who light up our lives and keep us on our toes.
