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.

Jessie Crowe · Married on 06/29/2019
I cannot say enough positive things about Jesse. I found his photography profile on the Knot and instantly fell in love with his natural photography style. During our first phone call Jesse answered all of our questions honestly and professionally. Upon hiring Jesse he never left any of our questions unanswered and was always prompt to respond to our emails. He has an extremely calming presence and is one of those people who can make you feel as if you have known each other your whole life even after one meeting. On the day of our wedding he was there early and began capturing us getting ready right away. He was able to capture so many beautiful and natural photos and none of them look over-posed at all. We had way too much fun with him all day and he honestly is just so chill while also being extremely professional. He was willing to capture any photo that we wanted but he really came up with most of the ideas for our photos. I had multiple people approach me at the wedding to compliment on his personality and our wedding party and family absolutely adored him. His second shooter is also a great guy and my Husband and his groomsmen loved working with him as well. They both work great together and not one moment of our day was missed. I truly loved having them both so we could get multiple views of our ceremony and other events throughout the night. I could go on and on about how amazing Jesse Speelman photography is but I will leave you with this. Look not further for your photographer. PLEASE hire Jesse for your big day, you will not regret it one bit.Sent on 08/03/2019

A fly on the wall!
Jesse did such an amazing job at our wedding and engagement, I'm beyond happy with our photos. I love that our photos are classic and not hidden behind a ton of touch ups. He did the perfect job of setting us up for posed photos, but also being a total fly on the wall and capturing some amazing candid moments, which is exactly what we wanted out of a photographer. He is professional, friendly, creative and very comfortable to be around. Since our wedding, we've had multiple friends and family comment on how great he was and the moments he photographed.Sent on 05/21/2019

Booking Jesse as our photographer was great from the beginning to the end as he showed us his past photography work and talked about the look we wanted for our special day. We truly love all of our pictures as they look exactly like our wedding day..no need for photoshop! We're both ackward when it comes to taking pictures but Jesse helped us to relax and gave instructions for certain pictures. I love the clean and natural look of our photos. Only regret is not hiring him for an engagement session.Sent on 07/10/2019
