About Weddings by JMF

Weddings by JMF is a wedding photography company based in Sarasota, Florida - dedicated to capturing the moments that tell your love story.

Experience

Our company is made up of husband and wife team: Jessica Marie Francis and Danny, and it was our wedding that helped me realize that wedding photography is my true calling.

I'm Jessica, the principal photographer and designer. While I'm proud of my 10+ years of experience in darkroom and digital photography, I recognize that I was on the path to this career waaaaay before I discovered my passion for photography. My career in the wedding industry actually started in middle school when I was first hired as a wedding singer. Over the next decade, I worked through high school and college at a local yacht club, eventually earning the title, "Assistant Banquet Director." It was in this role that I became immersed in the wedding and event world. Looking back, I've been blessed to experience weddings from almost every angle: entertainer, planner, bride, and photographer and I pull from that experience to design our services and techniques thoughtfully and with purpose.

Beside my technical training and esperience in the field, the real secret sauce that makes my success so sweet is my second shooter, assistant, and husband extraordinaire, Danny. A few years into our relationship, he expressed interest in learning more about photography and allowed me to train him for 4 years before he started shooting with me. For 5 years now he has been with me, photographing over 100 events ranging from mini sessions to weddings in tandem. I think his most amazing quality when we are working with our couples and families is his infectious laugh and ability to put people at ease. We always strive to blend into our surroundings to allow people to be themselves, and Danny's jovial demeanor is just what the doctor ordered.

    My new friends Jess and Danny

    I was recommended to Jess and Danny through a friend. They photographed our save the dates. I was so pleased with our save the dates that I knew I had to book them for our wedding. They walked my husband and I through the whole process and were so kind to me when I asked all of my silly questions. I continue to be impressed with their professionalism as well as their ability to customize their services to exactly what I wanted. I am still in shock with how quickly they were able to edit the photos and send them back to us. And not to mention how beautiful they are! They made us feel so comfortable from the moment I met them. I greatly appreciated their honesty when they noticed we were getting too tense or unnatural- looking in our photos. They made funny faces at us to lighten the mood and help with the pics! It was so fun! I cherish our time together and am happy to call them new friends.

    We used Jessica for our wedding at Historic Spanish Point in April and she was just wonderful! She coordinated with my wedding coordinators for both the day of and the site. She did a great job of asking me everything that I wanted and capturing those moments along with the sweet candid moments throughout the night. The venue was outdoors and we dealt with a little rain but she took all of that in stride as well. Danny was also wonderful, helping to make sure every shot we wanted, we got. We received the final pictures very quickly and we love them! The problem now is just deciding which ones and how many to order! The whole experience was fantastic and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

    Thank you so much, Stephanie!

    We were so honored to be a part of your day, rain or shine <3 Although we never want our brides and grooms to walk away with a "problem", having a hard time choosing which photos to print is definitely the best kind to end up with :)

    I know that we will always remember yours and Alex's special day, and hope that our images always remind you how incredible the love you share is.
