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, Offbeat Bride, Bethesda Magazine, Charm City Wed, The Wedding Hub and others.

Your wedding photographer search stops here
Where do I even begin. I first knew Jess was the photographer for us by how smoothly our initial phone call went and how easy it was to talk to her (I was in Ohio when I was trying to book vendors for my Maryland wedding). Jess did not try to sell me anything I didn't need and was completely understanding when I told her we had a friend who had offered to do our engagement pictures (most other photographers I spoke with seemed offended by this). Between the day when we booked Jess as our photographer and our wedding day, Jess and I had met a handful of times in person to go over vendors, recommendations, timelines, etc. I have to mention that Jess did not need to do any of this and that none of this was in our contract. The fact that she volunteered her free time to meet with us and help us bring together our wedding vision speaks volumes about not only the kind of person she is but also how much she loves what she does. Over the course of the year leading up to the wedding, Jess would periodically check in with us to see how we were doing. I felt like she became more of a friend than just a vendor that we hired. On the day of our wedding, she not only made sure that everything ran smoothly and that we got all the pictures that we wanted (and our pictures were STUNNING - I still look through them almost daily even 2 months later), but she made sure we felt natural, comfortable, and she made us laugh SO MUCH! She was out on the dance floor with all our guests until the very end of the night, snapping pictures of people breaking it down on the dance floor and boy are we glad we have these pictures. Our guests after the wedding told us that Jess felt more like a member of the family than a photographer at the wedding. We were so incredibly lucky to have her shoot our wedding and be a part of our big day. We miss her already and highly recommend her to all the couples getting hitched in the MD/DC/VA area!Sent on 07/09/2019

The best photographer
Where to begin... Jessica is hands down the best!!!! She is not only a wonderful person but an amazing photographer. She photographed my wedding last weekend and the sneak peaks were absolutely stunning. Jessica made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and wouldn't have wanted anyone else to shoot the best day in our lives. I will cherish these photos for a lifetime.Sent on 06/22/2019

We were fortunate enough to work with Jessica earlier this year for our engagement photos. She was responsive and friendly from first contact and we knew right away she was who we wanted to work with. Jessica was really flexible when we were rained out from our photo session and worked with us to quickly reschedule a time that worked for everyone, while still being able to make the sunset time frame work. We ended up with the most perfect afternoon and Jessica went above and beyond to make sure we took advantage of every last minute of golden hour. My husband and I have spent very little time in front of cameras, but Jessica was able to gently guide us, without it feeling forced or overly posed. We had the best time and it felt like we were spending the afternoon with an old friend, rather than someone we had just met. We received our photos shortly after and were thrilled with how they turned out! Jessica takes so much pride in her work and we felt like we were in great hands. We are so glad we were able to work with her and will be recommending her to all of our friends!Sent on 10/23/2018
