The kindest and most loving photographer

I'm not biased when I say that Jess is the BEST wedding photographer you could choose. Her care and intentionality for her clients goes above and beyond just your wedding day!

As a fellow wedding photographer, I was very particular about the type of personality I felt comfortable working with on my own wedding day and Jess could not have been the more PERFECT choice. Jess is easygoing and will immediately set you at ease whether it's on the phone, at your engagement session, or the day of your wedding. She has the most calming and steady presence about her and is insanely gifted at working quickly while maintaining an awareness of the emotions that are happening around her and being ready to capture it all. I was able to trust her implicitly when capturing the authentic emotion and feeling of our day. This is no small feet when there is the extra pressure of working for a fellow photographer and she knocked it out of the park! Jess truly made our entire experience so unique and effortless.

It's been 3 months and my husband and I still talk about how wonderful Jess and her assistant were throughout our entire day. All of our other vendors agreed as well!

Whatever you do, don't let the opportunity of booking with her pass you by! We love you Jess!!

Absolutely SAVED the day! Gorgeous photos!

The morning of my wedding day, my dream photographer (through a different company) had an emergency and couldn鈥檛 attend. He had reached out to Jess to see if she could shoot my wedding, which was 2 hours away from where she was, but that she was coming. Yes, I was nervous because I didn鈥檛 know her work, but as soon as she walked in (not late at all!!) and started talking to me, I was incredibly grateful for her warm, super sweet demeanor and already excited to see what she was going to capture. I am SOOOOO happy, not only that she was able to be there to capture my wedding, but everything she did throughout the day, the way made sure she knew every persons name and interested with them and the quality of her photos!!! I cannot stop looking at them! Something that could鈥檝e been a disaster, was made completely incredible and fun with her personality and professionalism. Everyone is RAVING about how beautiful the photos are and bridal party/guests keep mentioning how fantastic she was! THANK YOU JESS!!!!!!

Hey there! Call me Jess.

I live in Central Virginia and photograph weddings and engagements in Charlottesville, Richmond, DC, and the East Coast. My style is bright, film inspired, and romantic, and I love to give couples an experience beyond their expectations!


I grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania and I始m a great believer in the value of hard work, family, and community. I moved to Virginia in 2016, when I married my husband Steve. We strive for a simple, unhurried life and live out in the country in Central Virginia.

Art in any form has always been a passion of mind; as a kid I was obsessed with drawing, painting, and playing music, and when I picked up a camera at age 16, a new passion was born. I love the way photography combines art with real life, and I始m constantly looking to improve and perfect this art.

This job to me is more about relationships than anything else! I love hosting people and spending time with them over dinner or coffee. Send me an email and let's chat about your wedding dreams!
