I cannot praise Jessica enough, and would highly recommend her to all future brides. Her photos themselves are beautiful, and every aspect of my interaction with her was simply outstanding.
Jessica is incredibly communicative and responsive via email and phone. She is so detail-oriented and has helpful tips and sample shot lists and schedules, which I found extremely helpful.
In-person, she is friendly and professional yet easy-going. She makes everyone feel very at ease and she is so knowledgeable about making your photos look the best. For example, she will move your dress or wait for the wind to change directions so the photo is simply perfect. Not only did she get every photo on the shot list I requested, but she got many more than I ever could have expected.
Jessica was also great at keeping an eye on the clock. We were running late, and she was flexible about rearranging the schedule to make it work. She stayed very calm and somehow still got every portrait we wanted. (plus, she didn't stress me out, which was much appreciated!) Also, Jessica was great at politely but firmly directing family during our portraits, so we got them done very quickly.
She has an amazing eye and as we were walking around she occasionally asked us to stop to take a quick photo -- these unplanned photos were some of my favorites! She also takes a great combination of "artistic" photos, candids, and portraits.
Jessica also gets the photos to you very quickly, despite her being so busy. I have friends who got married before I did who still don't have their wedding photos. In terms of value, Jessica has very competitive prices, particularly when you consider the quality of her work and business. I feel I got an excellent value for my investment.
Simply put, I cannot recommend Jessica more highly. I believe all future brides would be thrilled with her work.

Jessica was one of the best decisions we made
Jessica was our wedding photographer and she was one of the best decisions that made throughout the entire planning process. From our first meeting to our wedding day she was professional, friendly, and collaborative. We had a lot of out-of-the-box ideas that we wanted to do at our engagement session and she gladly accommodated us and even came up with some great suggestions. We also are both very camera-shy and Jessica's warm personality and direction helped us get out of our shells and we were able to get a lot of great photos of the two us. Prepping on the logistics of the wedding day, Jessica provided a lot of great advice and brought up a lot of helpful suggestions that we didn't even think about. Those tips really came in handy on our wedding day and her calm demeanor was also a very welcomed presence.
We received our final wedding photos and she really captured a lot of beautiful, candid moments. We're so happy with our pictures and have so many awesome photos that show how great our big day was!

It was clear from that first time we met Jess that she was a total pro, and that we could feel at ease trusting her with the very important work of photographing our wedding. Not only does she of course take beautiful photos, she is so friendly, flexible, organized, and communicative. She was on top of everything, from the engagement shoot through posting the final wedding photos, and always made sure that our wants and needs were being taken into account. She also photographed my sister's wedding, and my mom is already making plans to lure her back to New York for my nephew's bar mitzvah, that is how much we all love Jess and the photos she takes!
