Where to begin with how amazing Jessica is?!? From the first time I met her she was an absolute pleasure to work with. See made the entire process flawless and as stress free as possible. Her passion for photography and skill shines thru her work. I was blown away by how our phothis turned out. There hasn't been one family member or friend who's response to our pictures that wasn't WOW!! She truly captured every detail of our perfect day and I can't thank her enough. She was recommended to me by a friend and it was the best advice. To any bride looking for a fantastic photographer Jess is it!! I've not only recommended Jess to several of my friends getting married but several friends for family portraits. I can't wait to work with Jess on future events thought my marriage. You can't go wrong with hiring Stout Photography to capture any occasion! Jess is the best and a wonderful person to work with!
Jessica and Kara are very talented and sweet. They are very good with giving specific instructions on how the picture should be taken, so the portrait pictures all takes out perfect.They are also very good with lights and that helped to make some of the portrait pictures like Hollywood posters! Their pictures showed a lot of emotions which was the most important to me on a wedding.
In general, you can not go wrong if you choose her. Everyone is impressed with her work.
We got married 2 months ago and Jessica was our photographer. She did an amazing job! The pictures will remind you about your special day forever. So make sure to pick Jessica if you want perfect wedding pictures! She knows how to use the light and she surprises precious moments. It's the type of pictures that show people's feelings...that's what I call art! I would give Jessica 10 stars if I could because she is THE BEST!
Jessica Stout (VanTassel) is the most brilliant photographer I have ever seen! She was not only a pleasure to work with, but she was incredibly professional. She did an amazing job helping to keep a nervous bride calm. Also, I had done engagement photos with her before the wedding, which allowed me to know that when she suggested something I should do it! For example, she was the only person that could have convinced me to walk in water with my dress on. And I am so glad I did! The photos she took of my husband and I are a masterpiece! I love her personality and she is so easy to work with!!!
There are NO words for Jess!!! She is Everything!!!!! A true visionary in her field, she was extremely professional and responsive! Her style of shooting is my favorite, it looks like it should be on the cover of Vogue! I would recommend her to every Bride in the universe! She is the Best of the Best!!!!! Thanks Jess! XO
When my husband and I came upon Stout Photography's website, and viewed Jessica's breathtaking photos, we knew she was the photographer for us! Her unique artistry is evident by how she is able to capture the seemingly most simplest moment yet turn it into the most amazing work of art, because of her thorough understanding of lighting and perspective. As an artist, I was highly selective of my vendors, especially when it came to our photographer and videographer, and Jess was the dream photographer we had always hoped for! Besides her talent, she has an amazing personality and was always available to speak with us if we had any concerns or questions. On the wedding day, she handled every obstacle with professionalism. She has a great balance of seriousness and humor, with an upbeat energy - a personality essential on the most stressful day of your life! The weather was unbelievably hot on our wedding day, and we were planning on canceling our outdoor photo shoot as a result, but Jess calmly advised me to still go through with it because she did not want us to miss an amazing photo opportunity, and she was right! She helped give us that objective perspective that we needed when there were so many other things going on in our minds! Needless to say, those photos are one of the most treasured images in our album and we're so happy that Jess was there to not only capture our special day, but give us her advice we needed to ensure that we would get the most memorable images. On the day of your wedding, you want someone you can trust, and that would be Jessica of Stout Photography!
No words can describe what an absolute fantastic photographer Jessica is. If you are reading this and still need a photographer, seriously....book her...now! Not only are the photos breathtaking, but she was able to capture every single moment of my wedding & reception without me even being aware that she was there! My husband and I are not huge fans of taking photos, but Jessica made our experience so much fun and produced unbelievable pictures. My husband and I owe Jessica a million thanks not only for our photos, but also for allowing us to truly have the time to enjoy our wedding! We decided to do a first look, which meant all we had were family photos to complete during cocktail hour. No lie...our family photos (not a small family either) were done in 10 minutes (and looked great)! Hence, because of Jessica, we were able to greet all our guests during happy hour and actually party during the reception. I have people tell me daily how beautiful my photos are and that my photographer was awesome. I couldn't agree more! Jessica is a consummate professional with an insane talent and perfect personality.
Jessica is amazing!!! Just her presence took our wedding to a whole new level. She is so fun and pleasurable to work with. Her work is absolutely stunning! She takes the most beautiful photos I have ever seen in my life. She does things with angles and lighting that is mind blowing and gorgeous to see. One of the things we like about her the most is how she is able to capture the emotion in her shots. She is simply amazing and I can't recommend her strongly enough.
Jessica is amazing! We just got our wedding photos and they are absolutely breath-taking! She has an amazing eye for light and framing. She was such a pleasure to work with. We had a very disorganized and untimely bridal party and she rolled with the punches, got all of the shots we wanted, and did it all with a great attitude and a smile on her face. I thought formal photos would look tense and staged but she made us feel comfortable and natural and gave us great direction to get some amazing poses. We can't thank her enough! She was affordable, well worth what we spent, and we will cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives!
So I just received our engagement photos, and I was going to wait till after the wedding to write a review, but I couldn't wait. Jess is absolutely, without a doubt the best photographer I have ever seen. I have done my research because photos are the most important thing to me, and she is a creative genius. Her work speaks for itself, and after an email blast to my family & friends of our photos, within 10 minutes, every response was the same " those are incredible, we have never seen anything like it". The photos are dreamy and magical, and these are just engagement pictures. Booking Jess was the best decision for our wedding, and I know we will use her down the road for every major life event. Jess, you are stuck with us now...Thanks for all you do, and thanks for bringing our love to life :)
Hiring Jessica was the best decision we made during our wedding planning. She and her team are amazing. I can look at my wedding pictures and truly relive the day. Her photos are amazing and she captures the emotion of the day. She was so fun to work with and made everything seem easy. Lots of our wedding guest even mentioned how fun and creative she was with the shots. We got our photos back MUCH faster than we planned, which is always exciting! Since we've gotten them we've had lots of friends and family hire Jessica for their events. We plan to use Stout Photography for EVERY event we want to capture from now on! :)
Meet with her ASAP- she books up fast.
It is hard to decide where to begin describing Jessica & her gift as a photographer! Her pictures speak for themselves as to her ability, but she gave us more then just great pictures! Jessica stood out from the beginning for me. During my search for a photographer, I became discouraged bc finding a great, well rounded photographer was my most important decision. Its what my family and I would remember that day by forever, & I had not fallen in love with anyone yet. So just days before i needed to make a final decision my venue posted photos from a recent wedding, the photographer I had not seen before. Scrolling through photos, 1,2,.. I stop on a photo of the bride having her hair sprayed & thought to myself, "Wow! Stunning bride but INCREDIBLE PHOTOS!!" I kept scrolling & I specifically recall thinking each photo was stunning and UNIQUE! So much emotion and detail! So I got to a silhouette pic of the B&G, sun setting behind them, and her long veil blowing in the breeze and I said out loud, "This is my photographer!" The next day I booked her and have never regretted that decision. She made the process, starting with our engagement session smooth. She calmed me down when we were late for our 1st shoot, ( I had no idea how stressful it would be) & I am grateful for her advice & wisdom that turned a bad situation into a success. She even did another session to make up for lost time, no charge! I now have stunning photos & a wonderful experience to look back on! Plus Jess's vast experience benefited us and made our investment worthwhile 2-fold. She is organized, punctual, (we got our pics early every time), experienced, and prepared, & would prepare me on what to expect. She adapts to every situation with ease & stays calm under pressure, which kept me calm. She gave us beautiful memories to cherish, & I would recommend her to every bride!
OMG. I cannot say enough great things about this woman!!! Her pictures speak for themself. This woman is talented beyond belief. She made my wedding look better than it even was. She captured every single moment that i would not have even remembered. Her creativity is what captured my husband and I, as we did not want cheesy, typical wedding photos. I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for, and sure you may finder cheaper out there but is cheap really worth it when your talking about a day you will never have the chance of recapturing. She offers packages for every budget. If you can afford her i strongly suggest you hire her. And if money in the budget is tight, pull from somewhere else. Get cupcakes instead of an expensive cake, smaller centerpieces, etc. Whatever it takes, you want this photographer. It happened to rain on our wedding day and it was an outside ceremony and reception..I had a bit of a melt down and Jessica gave me the best pep talk, ackowledging that "it sucks" but ensuring me to embrace it! So I did and actually the rain made our pictures even more amazing. I cant thank her enough. She captured this day exactly as I had pictured it for an entire year.
I have always been interested in photography and if I had any talent of my own, I would become a professional photographer. That being said, choosing a photographer for our wedding was one of the most important, if not THE most important, aspects of wedding planning for me. Back before I was even close to getting engaged, I always would browse wedding photographers when people would post their own wedding photos. I came across Stout Photography during one of these occasions and fell in love immediately. I was so amazed by the beautiful and unique shots she got! I thought having such an incredible photographer wouldn't be doable with our somewhat modest budget, but after contacting her and finding out about the packages she offers, I knew we could make it work. I was willing to cut back in other areas to make sure we had her as our photographer.
Being in front of the camera was something that both my now-husband and I were very nervous about. We had never been in front of the camera together with a professional photographer and we were afraid the pictures would end up looking awkward. Not to worry... Jessica made us feel so comfortable and we were so happy with how our pictures turned out!
Working with Jessica was so wonderful. She was so helpful throughout the entire wedding process, answering any and all questions I had via text or email. From ideas of what to wear for the engagement session to offering her opinions on vendors and other wedding details, etc., she was always there to offer her professional and very wise opinion. I trust her opinion and admire her style in regards to pretty much everything, so I always loved getting her input :) We just love Jessica and would highly recommend her to anyone!
I will rave for years about the quality of work Jessica provides. Her photos will bring you to tears and make you smile from ear to ear at the same time. Thanks to her, my wife and I will be able to look back and relive our wedding day for the rest of our lives. She is very professional and experienced in not only the photography field, but being able to keep your wedding day on schedule. Jess is great with families, kids and all around a great guest to have in attendance.
