Kind Words

Read what past brides have had to say about working with me.


Jessie made our wedding day so special, she is one of the most patient and warm people and made us feel so at ease in front of the camera. My husband is extremely camera shy and private with showing emotion, but I was floored when I saw the final images of that day. She was able to capture every bit of emotion in not only myself but in him as well. When we look back at those pictures from that day, now a year ago, we both relive the love and laughter that was felt the day we wed.

We were so happy that Jessie was a part of our wedding day that we also had her capture two other special moments of our life—maternity photos and newborn photos of our baby girl. We plan on having Jessie capture all of our special moments in the future.

Jessie was fantastic to work with. Despite being newer to the business, she is a true professional and her work was outstanding. My husband and I were so pleased with how our pictures turned out - and as a neat bonus, the final images came in a cute mailed package and on the coolest looking jump drive I have ever seen! I would definitely recommend her to friends and will likely use her again myself (I’m looking forward to starting a family and hiring her for her other photography services)!

Jessie was an absolute dream to work with, and I could not be happier with the pictures she took of our wedding! She bent over backwards to capture every aspect of our day, especially emotions and those priceless candid moments. She was so genuine and easy to work with. She gave honest, up-front advice, which I think any bride could appreciate. She also posted sneak peeks which I was very grateful for! She made me feel gorgeous and calm on my big day, and that’s all any bride can ask for in my humble opinion.

I would recommend Jessie and her beautiful, natural light photography to anyone! There’s nothing I would change about my wedding, especially my photographer!
