Could Not Have Found A Better Photographer!
Jesslyn Marie was our perfect photographer! From the moment you start talking with her you can see how genuine and caring she is. She truly wanted to make the day perfect for us! Our destination wedding was in Glacier National Park, MT on 10/10/2020 at sunrise. Weeks before the event, she sent us different recommended ceremony locations we could pick, then made the calls to get the permit and time reserved for us. Jesslyn even created an entire itinerary for the day we could refer to. She responded quickly and clearly to all our questions throughout the entire process. I can say with absolute certainty that from the very beginning she was way more excited about our Glacier wedding than we were!
Jesslyn listens to what you want and need for your day and does everything in her power to make it perfect. Jesslyn willingly drove us around the park and was even able to marry us, as she is ordained. She went above and beyond to give us the perfect day with the perfect photos. That is really saying something because it was a day when the park was full, so the itinerary and all those planned photos went out the window. But Jesslyn came up with a new plan on the spot and was able to make our day even more incredible and unique than it would have been.
When all was said and done, Jesslyn emailed us a link to our 475 photos within two weeks! It is an online gallery you will have access to. You can download the photos in hi-res or in web definition. Since we could not make up our mind on what photos to send our family, we just sent them the link to the gallery so they could see all of them! Jesslyn does not watermark her photos, so there is no extra cost there. All we paid was $4,000 for the 8 hours of photography, which went by so quickly! You are her whole day, so she is very flexible with her hours.
We are so over the moon that Jesslyn was a part of our day and you would be too!Sent on 11/19/2020
Jesslyn Marie Photography's reply:Jamie and Baylee, I could NOT have asked for a more awesome couple to work with! Thank you both so much for the amazingly kind words; it was such a privilege and an honor to help make your dream wedding experience come to life. With road closures and packed parking lots, it's a blessing to have a couple like you be so willing to embrace the moment, pivot your plans, and — much like you said — have an incredible day anyways, and one that ends up being even better! Your elopement is definitely not one I will ever forget and I will be forever grateful that I was able to be there for you two!

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! :)
