Hi! I'm Jessica, a colorful wedding photographer with a burning love for people, fun, and cake. I believe that every single wedding should be a unique and awesome celebration of you two. Being a wedding photographer is a dream job and I've been lucky to have met many kind, inspiring and hilarious couples who are passionate about supporting all love and equal rights.
My approach to wedding photography is all about you having a great time and me capturing all of the moments both big and small that made your wedding day so magical. I am after timeless photos - the kind that only get better as you look back at them over the years. My style is candid, fun and natural with a focus on people, love, laughter and real moments.
My wedding photography has been featured on the Huffington Post, Essence Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, Offbeat Bride, Layers of Luxe, Charm City Wed, The Wedding Hub and others.

Amazing, professional, extremely talented, fun to work with!
I cannot say enough about Jessica. She was the best decision we made. My pictures are absolutely stunning and I’ve only seen the sneak peak so far. I couldn’t pick a few so I shared the whole album on my social media (because that’s how good she was). She let us enjoy our day and we didn’t even know she was photographing half of the stuff she captured (truly amazing). My husband did not want to be pulled to take a ton of pictures and she respected that, pulled us only for the must have shots and let us have fun the rest of the time. Her candid pictures are breathtaking. She is fun and not afraid to get in with the crowd, but never in the way to ensure she captures the best moments. If you want the best of the best, hire Jessica, no questions asked.Sent on 10/24/2020

Meet Jessica, the Most Epic Photographer Ever.
Where do I even begin? I reached out to Jessica around Feb. of 2020 to photograph our 9/26/20 wedding date. She was so responsive from the start-in every way. I would send her pictures of what I was thinking for my Bridesmaids dresses and she would offer advice on coloring and style and how it would look in photos. Once COVID started to spread, I was nervous about our date and she even offered to work out a backup date a few months after our original date. She really puts your comfort and desires ahead of her own.Sent on 07/31/2020
Then COVID got worse and I started to realize a 200 person wedding was not only infeasible, but it was unsafe. Any bride who has been there, knows this can be a moment of heartbreak. I called Jessica and asked her if she would be available to photograph Brett and I in an elopement type wedding ceremony on July 17... yes, in two weeks from our convo. She had the date open and changed my contract to the new date. Any bride who has had to move around their wedding vendors because of COVID knows how difficult it can be. But in a time of chaos and uncertainty, Jessica was flexible, understanding, and kind.
Not only did she commit to the new date- she legit helped me plan my ENTIRE WEDDING IN TWO WEEKS. My mom died last year so I didn't really have someone to help me put everything together, especially so last minute. Jessica stepped up and guided me through it all. She sent me a list of venues that might work for a last minute wedding (we went with 48 Fields which was so perfect), videographers, officiants (Rabbi Patrick all day, everyday) and even helped me find an available Make-up artist (Christen conceptual beauty). The bottom line is when you hire Jessica you also hire her big heart, her passion for weddings, and her knowledge and experience with others in the industry.
The day of Jessica was extremely COVID-19 conscientious. She took all precautions and my 24 guests felt comfortable and respected her space as well. It was really hard for us all not to hug her because we loved her so much. She feels like a member of our group of friends now. I will hire her for everything for the rest of my life: baby shower, 30th anniversary, you name it, Jessica will be there taking her epic photos.
I want to end by speaking to her talent of capturing you and your loved ones in the most raw and perfect settings. You have to go to her instagram and see the pictures she took of our wedding. INSANE. She also gave me my VERY LARGE SNEAK PEAK 48 HOURS AFTER WEDDING. You just do not do that unless you are a professional who is passionate about what they do. Finally, at one point when my husband and I were dancing to his parent's wedding song, Jessica realized that no one was taking a video and she felt it was a special moment so she whipped out her phone and took a video. She sent it to me the morning after our wedding and it brought tears to my eyes.
Please ask Jessica for my number if you need any more convincing; although, after seeing her portfolio, I doubt you will.

One word: amazing
Jessica has been AMAZING. I was very picky about photographers and how I wanted my photos to come out. We met Jessica when she was shooting our friends’ wedding and when I checked out her site I was in love! Her prices were affordable, she’s a DREAM to work with, and she’s an all around amazing person. My husband is not super comfortable in front of a camera but she was able to capture the most amazing shots during our engagement shoot (she even travelled to our family’s house in WV) of us and our pup. When our wedding was cancelled due to Covid, she reschedule with us and came to our backyard and still made me feel like a bride, even thought it was just my husband, myself, the rabbi, and her. If/when we are able to have a “real” wedding again, she will be the FIRST person I call.Sent on 10/25/2020
