The Wedding Experience with Jessica Bordner Photography is fun and seamless. My goal is to turn real moments into beautiful photographs while still giving you lots of time to spend with your friends and family. I truly want to figure out each of my couples happy moments, what makes them unique and capture that for them. I specialize in outdoor, natural light photography both relaxed and editorial in look and feel. Candid moments, done with direction and styling. I love finding that southern inspired charm at every venue and location. I’ve been creating photographs for couples since 2010 and I’ve got your back no matter what. That experience has allowed me to consistently deliver to hundreds of my amazing couples, and I would love to do the same for you.
I LOVE photographing who you really are and what makes you, YOU. I’ve been rocking out memories for my clients since 2010 and loving everyday of it!
Want to know my favorite moment of the wedding day? The moments that happen right after you say I do and head down the aisle. The smile you give your friends and family, the tight grip as you walk hand in hand, the hugs and celebration. Every wedding is different but this moment is something shared by us all and always gets me right in that soft spot.

Jess is truly the BEST of the best!
Where to begin with Jess....From the very first time I saw her stunning work, I was hooked. Her creamy, dreamy images drew me in and after reading reviews of her and her work, I was sold. Jess is everything she is described as and so much more. In terms of her work, she is truly an incredibly talented artist. She just delivered the first edits for our wedding gallery and I can't stop looking at them--one gorgeous photo after the next. Jess makes it look easy but she is the perfect combination of talent and experience. Finding the right photographer was so important to me as the photos are the way we can relive the memories over and over again. We were so lucky to have found Jess to take on that extremely important responsibility. Her end product is easily worth the cost, but you get so much more than just that. My husband is not one to enjoy taking photos, but Jess made everything so fun and easy and light during our engagement photos that he was actually looking forward to wedding day photos. Beyond being so sweet and fun to be around, Jess has incredible taste and I frequently asked her opinion on bridesmaid robes, stamp options for invitations and other styling decisions that I had to make. Jess was always so eager and happy to help and even indulged me as I eagerly texted her about all of the props I wanted to bring for the details shots. Among other things, she ended up using my grandmother's old silver platter, my late grandfather's vintage binoculars and a pen from my dad's vintage pen collection in her stunning details shots. She is truly a master and has created so many special memories for us. We can't imagine anyone better to have captured our wedding day. We are so grateful and lucky to have found Jess.Sent on 03/26/2020

Thanks for coming to my TedTalk
I mean who doesn’t start religiously following their favorite photographer on multiple social platforms years before they’re even engaged?
I fell in love with Jessica’s rose-lit romantic aesthetic many years ago. My cousin (also a photographer) had worked with her on some projects and when she posted an album of their collaborative work I was mesmerized. Because I wanted my cousin to enjoy my wedding as a guest, I reached out to get some recommendations; of course she immediately offered Jessica Bordner. I panicked, wondering how I would explain that Jessica’s caliber of photographic sorcery was sure to be out of my budget. Suddenly Pinterest bride took over as I let the fantasy of ending up on the Instagram page I had worshiped for years overcome me. I resolved to amend my dress and beauty budget, after all, this photographer could make leftovers look dreamy and who wants to endure all that hairspray anyway.
To my utter astonishment and admitted glee, the quote I received was vastly disproportionate to the work I had seen. My mind couldn’t reconcile this artist with her affordable pricing and genuine personality. Somewhere between the first phone call and the thoughtful “welcome gift bag” I decided that if my marriage didn’t work out Jessica was my alternate soul mate. ((I’m of course kidding because obviously I am very much in love, as are Jessica and her husband))
Ridiculously awkward and unfamiliar with the process of professional photography, my wife and I were terrified at the prospect of being in the focus of such a powerful lens and talented artist. Our engagement session (included in the wedding package) remains one of our favorite pre wedding memories. Spending the day with Jessica felt effortless. We laughed hysterically and struggled to get serious for more intimate shots because we were having so much fun. Every picture felt organic, Jessica never forced or even suggested any poses that made us feel inauthentic, in fact she embraced some of our sillier moments, adding her editing magic to create the ultimate frame worthy moments.
This past weekend, my amazing photographer drove over an hour and a half to photograph the best day of our lives. She arrived earlier then her start time; with equally sweet, second shooter Kylie ready to go. I really wish I could tell you what those incredible ladies were up to on my wedding day, but alas they moved so quickly and discreetly through every step I honestly forgot they were there.
The morning after my wedding I woke to find several beautiful teaser photos, taken less than a day before. It’s hard to imagine anything surpassing the magic of that day, but the way Jessica captured our most precious memories will forever hold a place of unimaginable gratitude and wonder in our hearts. I am so thankful for Jessica and honored to have been on the other side of her brilliant gift.

Amazing! Would recommend to anyone!
Jess was so amazing to work with. I couldn’t have picked anyone better to capture our big day. To me, the photographer for your wedding is the most important vendor and I have never once doubted my choice in hiring Jess. I started researching photographers before I even had a venue. From the start Jess was very responsive, helpful, and genuine. She communicated throughout the entire process so I never was left in the dark, or left with questions. The team she had on hand for our wedding day was just as great as her! She was very quick to send out some sneak peaks and upload on the blog! I would recommend Jessica Bordner Photography for ANY and ALL your photography needs. She is a pleasure to work with, and her work is amazing!!!Sent on 01/15/2020
