We love Jesslyn. Seriously, she is the absolute best. From the get go we just clicked with her. She is so fun and down to earth while also being professional and talented. How she got some many amazing shots, I just don't know. She might also be a wizard. Our engagement shoot was perfect. We went down the Gallatin Canyon, which she'd driven and done some scoping of good spots the week before. A 2 hour round trip drive you all! She was super accommodating when I complained about the wind blowing us like crazy and having a vision for something (which she totally nailed BTW). After seeing those photos I was so excited for the weeding ones. She nailed it. Nailed it! Our day was so wonderful to being with, just perfect and so much fun. The photos really reflect that joy and fun. It's been about 2 weeks since she got them to us and I still find myself looking at them almost daily. Besides her absolutely terrific work, she is a cool person. As in, I hope we get to hang out when we are back in Bozeman, cool. Like I said above we just clicked. I'd heard your photographer is the most important person you hire because you spend basically all day with them, which was true, but also Jesslyn did such a great job of getting photos of all the actions, not just with me, the bride.
Seriously, I can't say enough great things. Hire her now. Just do it. Go. Do it now!Sent on 02/11/2020
Jesslyn Marie Photography's reply:Stephanie!! You and Neil are the BEST and your words are just too kind!! Your wedding day was just A-MAZ-ING. I seriously wish I could do it all over again every month just to soak in all the love and joy that was had by all. :) I can't wait to hang out with you two again, too!!

Jesslyn is a amazing and talented photographer. She specializes in elopement type gatherings and will make your special day adventures and worthwhile. She’ll go the extra mile for you and was extra flexible during Covid Time and agreed to split hours for this year and next year as we pushed our big reception out a year. If you are looking for a professional, adventurous, and flexible photographer I would recommend Jesslyn to you in a heartbeat. She cares about catching the moment instead of a pose which is very important to me and my other. :) thank you for everything you’ve done for Keith and I.Sent on 08/28/2020
Jesslyn Marie Photography's reply:Thank YOU for such kind words, Megan! Weddings like yours are exactly what makes my heart happy and full and I felt so honored to be a part of it. I seriously can't wait for your reception next year so we can do it all over again! :)
