Hi, my name is Jocelyn.

I'm a California girl who, despite her soft spot for windswept hair and surfer slang, has happily made her home in New York for the past 10+ years. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and the cutest dog* there ever was (*only slightly subjective fact). I make a point to travel solo every year, and have accumulated passport stamps from six continents in the process. I make a mean miso black cod, I think storytelling is an undervalued art and I've been known to close out the dance floor. Also: I really, really like weddings.

For me, wedding photography is less about documenting a moment as it is about capturing a feeling. It's the wave of crazy-in-love relief that washes over the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time. It's how post-ceremony newlyweds can't stop sneaking secret grins at each other. It's how there's nary a butt in their seat when the band cranks it up and everyone is dancing their hearts out. That stuff? Yeah, that's the good stuff. And I hope when you look back on my photographs way off in the future, you'll remember exactly how you felt the moment it happened.

I've photographed weddings, engagements and proposals on both coasts, and have had my work published in national and international magazines, such as The Knot. Take a look at my shots and style, and if it's a match, I'd love to hear from you.

    Friendly, Supportive, Everywhere at Once

    Jocelyn was fantastic during our wedding. She was easy to talk with, created a very comfortable environment day of, and gave us the most stunning photos. Would recommend her to anyone for their special day.

    5-Star NYC Elopement

    Jocelyn made our NYC elopement happen! My wife and I decided to get married with two weeks’ notice. Jocelyn was so responsive and easy to work with. She was incredibly organized and sent us great referrals for all the vendors we needed to make the day happen. Jocelyn was such a joy to be around, she made us comfortable and told us exactly what to do for the pictures (which was so helpful). Not only did she make our day seamless and special, the photographs were beautiful and were delivered ahead of schedule. Getting married during a pandemic wasn’t ideal, but Jocelyn took all the safety precautions seriously and made us feel safe. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. We would recommend Jocelyn for anyone looking to elope!

    Awesome Experience from Start to Finish

    After doing some research for an elopement photographer (less than 3 months before the big day), I came across Everly Studios. With the rise of couples turning away from traditional weddings, there were a lot of photographers specializing in elopements with great websites that detail the elopement process. What made Jocelyn’s website stand out to me was the style of her photos; how every one of her sample galleries rightfully looked like their own stories as opposed to different couples in the same exact poses. I reached out to her and we met for coffee. My fiancé and I had a pretty clear idea of what we wanted and she pulled all the details in. I appreciated all the questions she asked, really showing how she wants to personalize each event. She also set me up with the officiant she frequently works with, gave me suggestions for cake and hair/makeup and helped set up the timeline (she was also really flexible, and let us play by ear whether we wanted to shoot at a second location); her role was not just photographer, but also wedding planner. Jocelyn was really easy to talk to and 10 minutes into our meeting, I knew she was the right choice.

    One thing I will note is that when we were reviewing the contract, we realized that it included a model release clause, which gives her rights to use our images. We were really uncomfortable with this, as we do appreciate our privacy. I looked around and it appears this is pretty typical in photography contracts. After discussing it more with my fiancé, we decided to agree to this as seeing other couples’ galleries is what drew us to picking her in the first place and why not let others see how well she captured our event, too. We have no regrets about this, but if this is something that is a dealbreaker for you, my suggestion would be to ask potential photographers about this upfront.

    The big day came and went without a hitch, although I can tell she is the kind of person who can adapt to situations, stay calm during them and keep the couple calm as well! There was a mix of cued poses (nothing ridiculously unnatural though) and a lot of her just observing us and photographing us getting dressed, during the ceremony and afterwards. I forgot to mention that we wanted this to be a really intimate event, with no family or friends; just us, Jocelyn and the officiant. I’ll admit, it did feel a little awkward for us to be the center of attention the whole evening without any other subjects around for her to photograph, but it really did feel more like a friend was around; we felt that comfortable with her. The next morning, she sent a link to highlights of our wedding as a sneak peak and to share with family and friends. About 4 weeks later, we received the full gallery and we were both so impressed at how she documented our special day and how we not only looked like ourselves, but also felt like ourselves while we were being photographed, too! I would definitely recommend Jocelyn as a photographer, she truly has a gift for what she does.
