I’m Jess, the photographer behind Golden with Light. I pretty much pinch myself every day that I get to go out and photograph one of you. I feel so lucky to be trusted by the families, the couples, the kids, the individuals that allow me into their space, sharing themselves with me. It’s not easy, I know.
My wedding work caters toward the upscale, untraditional and love-inspired brides and grooms out there (you know who you are), and my portrait work focuses on bringing out your beautiful self in all your authenticity. As a photographer I’m one part documentarian, one part guide, one part observer, one part enthusiast, one part dreamer and wholly an artist. My background in photography includes a fine art photography degree from Bard College, in New York's Hudson Valley. I currently live in Maine and cover New England and beyond as a portrait, wedding and commercial photographer. I’m so glad you found me and can’t wait to work with you.

Jess was amazing!
Jess was amazing! We feel so lucky to have been able to work with her. She's so thoughtful, creative, comfortable to be around and had great attention to detail. We could just relax into our day knowing she was capturing all of the details and precious moments of our day. And her images are so gorgeous. We can't recommend her enough. Just talk to her! She's amazing.Sent on 09/17/2020

My experience was beyond my expectations.
Jess was extremely accommodating and professional. She went above and beyond to make sure every moment of my big day was captured in a beautiful way. I could not recommend a more talented photographer for your wedding day or any special occasion. I couldnt be happier with my photos.Sent on 09/19/2020

Engagement and Elopement Photography
We chose Jess for our engagement photography and subsequently used Jess again for our elopement because we were so happy with the way our first batch of photos turned out. In addition to being punctual and thorough, Jess made us feel at ease during both sessions. All of the photos that Jess captured are exactly what we were looking for. Her attention to detail, humor, willingness to travel, and eye for composition are all appreciated. We now consider Jess not only our go to photographer, but also a friend.Sent on 09/19/2020
