About

On WeddingWire since 2014

Jessica Yahn Photography is a wedding photography company in Springfield, Missouri. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, which is why I am so happy that you are considering including us to be a part of it. I currently commit to a limited number of weddings per year to ensure that your day remains a priority. Photography is all about connection and your photographer will be one of the biggest and longest-lasting connections you'll share with any of your wedding vendors. I strive to create beautiful portraits, but also lasting relationships with my couples. When you book with us, you are not just a client, you become part of the JYP family! I am honored to have the opportunity to laugh...to cry...to share your love story.

Our style is deeply ingrained in a storytelling approach. While we are happy to grab the formal & beautifully posed images, my goal is to also capture the true moments and the emotion of the day. Of course, I am there to photograph the "big" moments like your first kiss as newlyweds, but I also want to capture the little moments just as much. I want to catch you having an amazing time laughing with your friends while getting ready, or the flower girl twirling in her dress while she feels like a mini-princess. I'm looking for mom or dad's tears when they see you for the first time and those small squeezes of the hand from grandma giving you a little extra love & reassurance. And then after the "I Do's" have been said, you've shared your first kiss and you get a moment to breathe...I want to look for that moment when you exchange a small look of happiness when you realize that you now have the rest of your lives together to adore & support one another.

Your wedding is more than just pretty pictures - it is also all of the moments in between the poses.

Absolutely Amazing!!

Jessica was absolutely amazing and we are incredibly pleased with our decision to use her as our engagement and wedding photographer! She was a great communicator who went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day went smoothly. Jessica being so organized and on top of things made our wedding experience much less stressful than it otherwise would have been. Neither my husband or I are super comfortable in front of a camera, but Jessica’s directions and attitude put us at ease and made for a very enjoyable experience. Our wedding day went just according to plan, and so so much of that credit goes to Jessica! Taking everything we had spoken about into consideration, she put a wedding day timeline together for us; that was a huge stress relief! Jessica was amazing leading up to the wedding and I couldn’t of been any more pleased.

I had so much confidence in Jessica leading up to the wedding day, and she did not disappoint! She was organized, had a plan, and followed it just as we had discussed. When hiccups arose, she was a calming presence who quickly adapted and made the absolute best out of the situation.

Now, on to the photos! Jessica is a remarkably talented photographer who captured our wedding day better than we could have imagined. The photos all turned out so good and she was able to capture so many moments that we, as the bride and groom, were not able to witness in the moment. Our couples portraits, wedding party photos, and family photos were stunning. We are also so incredibly grateful for Jessica taking the time to photograph our guests during the reception. She was able to capture every moment with such authenticity; we love to look back at the photos and relive the day.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!!

How do I even begin!? Jessica is hands down the best! She captured every single detail of our very busy and beautiful wedding! Our wedding day was honestly a blur, but everything that I or my husband could have ever wanted was captured, and I’m able to look back and relive one of the best days of my life over and over again. She not only is an amazing photographer, but an amazing human being. When it came to portraits after our ceremony, she handled my husbands very big family with ease and kept everyone on schedule without compromising the quality of her work. Her associate, Chrystal is also amazing and does amazing work! I still get compliments from friends and family about how friendly Jessica and Chrystal were at our wedding. I can’t say enough great things about both of these wonderful women! I can’t wait for them to capture my husbands and I big moments later on in our lives!

I had six hours of photography with Jessica, and she made my photography dreams come to life. It was important to me that the photos were real-life photos that I could look back on and remember the day in an accurate way. She was patient with my changing shot list up to the wedding day, and she has been very responsive throughout. Throughout our day, she ensured I was getting the photos I wanted. While I only got her for six hours, she captured me getting ready, some of the minor details of our ceremony, as well as all the big moments of our reception. I'm less than a week out from our wedding, and I already have sneak peeks to tide me over. Can't wait to see the rest! I can't say enough nice things about Jessica. 10/10 would recommend.

Hi! I'm Jessica! Originally from Missouri, I spent 5 years living in Hawaii and Washington, but am happy to now be serving the greater Springfield, Missouri area once again. I am the proud wife of a military veteran and a mommy to two crazy monkey's disguised as children.

Photography is so much more than just a hobby or a job for me, it is a life source. I truly feel at home when my camera is in my hands. While I have had training & education - I am constantly striving to learn more about this Art because to me I will never know enough.

  • I am an avid reader and chronic over-punctuator!!…??!!
  • I believe that music heals the soul.
  • I binge-watch Netflix & Hulu while I edit your photos, which means I go through A LOT of television series. Feel free to throw some suggestions out to me!
  • I treat all of my couples just like a close friends which means there is a 99.9% that I WILL tear up at your wedding.

I can’t wait to hear from you!!!

Lots of Love,

Jessica

Jessica was great to work with! She came with enough time to take getting ready pics and had amazing ideas for shots! She was very professional, kind, and courteous to all the professionals working on the wedding party! To top it off, multiple sneak peaks were available within a day or 2! There is nothing more exciting then to see photos of how everything comes together after an event! I would recommend Jessica for photography!
