I want to take the photos that are still hanging on your walls when you're 75.
My style blends a classic elegant look with charming, quirky portraiture. I'm inspired and driven to capture your personality in your photos. My goal is to capture real & honest emotion, and create timeless photographs that will withstand the test of time.
I want your wedding photography experience with me to be simple.
The many ins-&-outs of a wedding day each deserve to be captured and remembered. I will tell your whole story. You shouldn't need to worry about squeezing your entire day into a small timeframe, and with me you don't have to. Most packages comes with 8 hours of coverage, and a second shooter.
Simplicity is also what keeps my pricing affordable. You won't find a box of heart-shaped chocolates nestled in "Pin-worthy" faux-moss along with your wedding photos, but I will work tirelessly documenting your big day and provide you with images that capture your personality and the love you share. I don't out-source any work: I'm the one that will meet with you, I'm the one photographing your wedding, I'm the one going through the thousands of photos we take together, and I'm the one hand editing each individual image.
In photographing for over 10 years, I've found the most reward shooting weddings. The result of working closely with my clients, then seeing what the photos I've captured mean to them after the wedding is not only professionally satisfying, but also emotionally fulfilling. If you're looking for a trained, experienced, creative professional who is emotionally invested in documenting your day at a realistic price, I'd love to grab a coffee with you.

Perfect photographer for the perfect day
We are so happy we had Jesse as our wedding photographer! He went above and beyond our expectations. He did such an amazing job capturing every sweet moment. He even posted one of our now favorite photos on his IG day of our wedding! He was professional, accommodating, and completely fit in with our group. It was so much fun having him apart of our big day! We couldn't be happier. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Jesse, for everything!

Jesse is the BEST - Amazing and talented photographer
Jesse is absolutely incredible. He shot both our engagement photos and our wedding day, and did an amazing job capturing everything - from the posed portrait photos to the fun candids. His attention to detail and eye for what makes the perfect photo is second to none. He thinks of everything - there were so many little things I wouldn't have thought to capture or plan, but Jesse was always 20 steps ahead of us. He made the entire experience incredibly smooth, relaxed and fun. And most of all, his photos are absolutely gorgeous. If you are debating on who to book as your photographer, you do not need to look any further than Jesse. Thank you so much Jesse!

Phenomenal person, Wondeful work
When searching for a wedding photographer, it was important to me to find a vendor who captured memories and not just images. Jesse did exactly that. From a technical standpoint, Jesse's photojournalistic approach was flawless -- he captures every big moment, look, detail and then compiles a well-rounded collection of your wedding day. He provided a small wedding preview 2 days after our wedding, and was prompt in responding to all of our requests. He is the consummate professional. From an artistic standpoint, and this is where I think he shines the most, Jesse goes beyond what "looks good." Jesse finds the love in every shot. I can't stress this enough. Every. Single. Shot. As we looked through our wedding photos, I was given the chance to relive so many moments I missed. The love on my husbands face while I ready my vows; the pride in our grandparents face as they watched us say "I do"; the happiness and trust in my mom's eyes as she gave away her firstborn into a new and happy union. From a personal standpoint, Jesse is a friend. He was instrumental in making my day seamless, chatting down my preceremony jitters and reminding us to focus on ourselves and not the extraneous details of the day. That natural ability to connect also shows in his work. All of our photos reflected our individual personalities and the nature of our relationship, and that only comes from a photographer who is 100% committed to you and your day. As an added bonus, the assistant photographer Nick brought the same level of talent and enthusiasm as we had expected of Jesse and really rounded out a team determined to make sure no moment was missed. In summary, Jesse Speelman Photography was unequivocally the best investment we made towards our wedding day. Make him yours too.
