The day you say “I Do” will be full of beauty and emotions and you want to make sure those memories are captured—but you also want to be fully present on your wedding day.
I’m Jessica Leigh: a Northeast Ohio based wedding photographer who loves capturing intimate, outdoor weddings. My biggest desire is to help you and give you a special, stress-free, and fun wedding experience! You can totally have both beautifully romantic photos and have an organized photographer—in fact, you deserve both! You have a long to-do list (and not enough time) for your big day, so I’m here to take wedding photography off your shoulders. If you feel like you need a little help, you’re in the right place!
To me, people are the most important thing. The way your images look is not the only important thing about wedding photography—the way you feel in front of the camera is just as important! I am all heart and will give you tools to help plan a stress-free day that makes taking photos an enjoyable experience. You’ll have beautiful photos to look back on and beautiful memories to re-live.
I promise to give all of myself wholeheartedly to my work, to capture not only photographs, but feelings, and to create art that conveys realness and evokes emotion. I vow to serve each couple in a unique way tailored to their needs not just on their wedding day, but during our entire time together. I promise to respect every wedding day as the beginning of a lifelong journey. I vow to never loose the love that drives me to pour my heart into each wedding and to always push myself to be a better photographer and a better person, and to go above and beyond my calling as a wedding photographer so that you have the best day imaginable.
I really love this. It's the hugs, smiles, and happy tears that keep me motivated, invested, and completely satisfied in my work. I love the growth, personal, creatively, and professionally I get to experience. But most of all I just really love working with couples to create memories and art that will last a lifetime. So at the end of the day, my why is you. I find so much joy in serving and would love to invest some time in helping you. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions—I would be glad to answer them for you!

Perfect light finding wizard!
Jessica is awesome! We've only gotten our engagement pictures so far but I have no doubt that she will be equally as amazing when we get married in October!Sent on 12/18/2018
I am a photographer myself so I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to choosing other photographers. What drew me to Jessica was that you can tell through her photos that she is a master of choosing the right lighting for every photo and doesn't rely on post-processing to make her photos looks great! Lighting is key for any good photo and Jessica is definitely a light wizard - everyone always looks healthy and glowing in all of her photos.
She's also great during the shoot too! Taking engagement pics is always a little awkward at first (unless you're a super model) but she made sure we felt comfortable and guided us seamlessly. She really captured our connection and happiness and I couldn't have been happier with the photos!
I am sooo looking forward to October! :)

Jessica is an incredible photographer. She is thorough in surveying the site, is such a sweet person, and just so talented. Even in the pouring rain, she was able to capture every moment of my wedding. I would highly recommend her!Sent on 09/17/2018
