It’s the biggest day of your life… surrounded by your favorite people, dancing, rejoicing, laughing, and promising. It is a truly sacred day.

When I walk into a wedding day, I walk in with the responsibility of documenting your day exactly how you will remember it. When you and your girls are getting ready and you get a little choked up thinking about how you’ve already dreamed of this day. When your parents first lay eyes on you in your dress. When your groom’s knees buckle watching you walk towards him. When the officiant drops his notes and has to run after them in the wind. When your people stand up shouting with excitement after you say “I do”. When the best man tells that embarrassing story during speeches and your groom turns beet red. When your brother splits his pants on the dance floor. When you climb into the cab at the end of the best day of your life.

I am there for it all, capturing your story to treasure for generations to come.

Documentary Weddings

A fresh approach to your special day with an emphasis on capturing moments as they unfold. Less posing and awkward prompts, more time loving on your best friend.

Some things I believe about wedding photography:

My job as a wedding photographer is a privilege

Wedding photos are your first family heirloom

No photo is too close

Instagram trends will fade, but your unique story won’t

Dance parties at receptions should get WEIRD

Your unique love deserves to be celebrated honestly


“Jess did an engagement shoot for us recently and wow oh wow – was she amazing. She did such an incredible job at making us feel comfortable and capturing every raw & true emotion. My fiancé and I had never done professional pictures, and Jess was so helpful in guiding us through the whole shoot and making it feel so natural. The photos turned out absolutely stunning. She was very knowledgeable on the lighting and effects. I recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer who will not only get you some amazing shots, but will help you have a lot of fun doing it as well!”

“Jessica was apart of our wedding day and I am so glad she was. From start to finish, she captured everything from laughs to cries, we all went through an emotional rollercoaster and you can see that in Jessica’s pictures, I was so overwhelmed when I looked through all my photos. Cannot begin to thank her enough and I am so happy we choose her to capture the best day of our lives. Forever grateful.”

— Meghan G.

“Jess took pictures for our surprise proposal and we couldn’t recommend her more! My new fiancé and I had never done a photo shoot before and we are usually pretty awkward with pictures, but Jess helped us break the ice and got very natural, candid, BEAUTIFUL pictures that we are absolutely in love with. She captured every emotion, preserving the feelings we shared so so so perfectly!!”
