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 was absolutely incredible to work with! From the first day that I met with her, she made me feel like my opinions and thoughts on our engagement wedding photos were valued. She is so very kind and understanding, but gets the job done at the same time! She stayed in communication with me throughout the planning process, which I really appreciated! She made my husband, who is not a huge fan of having his picture taken, feel very comfortable throughout both our engagement and wedding photos! She always encouraged my husband and I to be our silly selves and we had so much fun throughout working with her!Sent on 09/02/2019
On our wedding day, Jessica was wonderful to work with and encouraged our wedding party to have fun while taking photos. She was also very professional and made sure that all of the photos were perfect.
I have a blended family, and Jessica took time and care to make sure that our wishes were honored and that she got all of the photos that were important to us! She and her co-photographer, Emily, got every photo that we asked for that day, and we are truly so thankful!
And let’s just talk about the quality of the photos! We have an amazing variety of BEAUTIFUL photos, both posed and candid. Jessica’s editing is absolutely gorgeous and we are so happy with how all of our photos came out!
I honestly could go on forever about our amazing experience with Jessica, but I will end by saying that we feel so very blessed to have worked with her! Jessica (and Emily), thank you so much for capturing the best day ever. We will cherish our photos forever!

Wonderful Wedding Photographer!
We couldn't have been happier choosing Jess as our wedding photographer! She was very helpful, detailed, & professional every step of the way. She was very organized the day of the wedding & helped keep our crazy bridal party & families on time! She was also flexible working around the rainy weather we had for our June wedding. We absolutely love all of our photographs! Jess did a great job of capturing the formal portraits as well as the candid moments. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in NE Ohio.Sent on 08/31/2019
Engagement session included in all collections!
It is always a pleasure working with Jessica, you can’t meet a sweeter, more professional photographer in the industry! If you want someone that is great to work with and provides amazing quality work, J. Sonmore Photography is top of my list! -Bret
