    Jessica was such a blast to work with for our engagement photos and I'm really excited to see how our wedding photos turn out in a few months. Neither my fiance or I like taking pictures but looking through the photos you could barely tell. She was very prompt returning emails and was willing to answer any questions we sent her way.

    Update: Our wedding pictures are gorgeous and again she was a lot of fun to work with. I've gotten a lot of comments from everybody about how great the pictures look.

    Heard nothing but good things about this photographer! Kind of on the spendy side but her work proves it!

    283 Photography shot both our engagement and wedding photography! Jessica was very personable and had both my fiancé, now husband and I feeling super comfortable and relaxed within minutes of both sessions. 283 Photography is super creative and listens to what the clients are asking for in their photography.
    Thank you Jessica for helping us find a photographer for a lifetime and we can't wait to see photography from the wedding a couple of weeks ago! Just from the "sneak peek" we know they will be stunning!!

    My new husband and I were thrilled to have Jessica Weischedel from 283 Photography capture our special day. We know Jess and we have seen her work, so we knew she would do an incredible job, but we had so much fun working with her as she took photos for the wedding. She was so animated and enthusiastic and game for our various pose ideas (even though she was 8 months pregnant!). She is clearly passionate about the work she does.

    My bridesmaids and I got ready at my apartment and there was not really a good place to hang the dress to get nice photos, Jess was like, "no problem!" and wrapped the dress up in a sheet and took it outside to take some photos against a tree! She was also very patient with my other friends/family members who kept getting in her way, trying to snap their own photos.

    She was professional in her preparation procedures and responsive to our emails and questions.

    I would recommend her to anybody needing special event photos!

    One of my best friends is a photographer and she highly recommended that my husband and I choose 283 Photographer. I trusted her advice and we couldn't have been more pleased!! Jessica, along with her second photographer, Rachel, were amazing to work with!! Jessica is very down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Our entire wedding party was impressed with how great our photographers were. The guys had a great time with Rachel during the day and the ladies had an awesome time with Jessica!

    Jessica had unique and fun ideas for pictures as well. It's only been a few weeks since our wedding, so I haven't see our pictures yet, but I know they are going to be perfect.

    If you’re looking for a photographer that is creative, flexible, fun, unique and professional, then 283 Photography should be your choice!!

    Thank you 283!!

    Jess with 283 photography was so fun to work with for our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures! She has tons of unique ideas so that your photos are like all the photos you typically see. She is organized and flexible and works with you to make sure that you get images that you really want to. And she loves doggies, so our puppy was more than welcome for all of our photos, which made it just that much better! She really goes above and beyond to make it the best of the best!

    Jessica is an extremely talented photographer and my husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the wedding photos. Not only is she talented but she is professional and is very good in a "crisis." We had a major hiccup on the day of our wedding which changed the timeline drastically providing for a significantly smaller window of time for taking photos. She somehow managed to get everything done by responding quickly. All of this was accomplished without compromising the quality of the photos. I would most definitely recommend her.

    My husband and I decided to go with Jessica at 283 Photography after viewing her photos that she took of a friends’ wedding. We noticed her incredible eye for unique shots that we felt, no local photographer would have been able to provide for us. We booked her a year and a half in advance before our wedding, and have had the privilege of getting to know her ever since.

    Jessica took our engagement session pictures in Sioux Falls and immediately made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. One of our favorite things about her was how she was all about the two of us feeling relaxed and looking “normal” with each other.

    We just got married two weeks ago and I can’t say how many times I heard how great our photographer was. The entire wedding party raved about how easy going she is and how they loved the “out of the ordinary” shots that she’d take. We’ve only seen a sneak peek of our wedding day photos, but if they even come close to how perfect our engagement session pictures were, we’ll be extremely satisfied!

    If you’re looking for a photographer that does exquisite work with making each and EVERY photo look it’s best, Jessica is your person. She’s kind, professional, and has a unique eye for an unforgettable photo!

    I first spotted Jessica's photography at a family friends wedding and I instantly loved her work so when it came time to find a photograper for my own engagement pics and wedding it was hard to look at anyone elses. I live in Iowa so it made more since to choose a photographer from Iowa rather than South Dakota but I just couldn't do it.....nothing else compared. We traveled to South Dakota to have our engagement pictures taken and met Jessica for the first time she made us feel very comfortable and our engagement pictures were amazing! She then came to Iowa when it was time for our wedding and she did not miss one detail about the wedding and the reception. Every single picture is perfect! There is no other photographer I would ever recomend she is soooo wonderful! Also I was nervous about doing the "first look" before the ceremony and Jessica answered all of my questions and helped me decide on whether we should do it or not. Anytime I had questions or emailed her her responses were very quick and helpful! If you are looking for a photographer and you are near or far away Jessica is the one I would say to get you will not be dissapointed and she is worth every penny! The pictures are the most important part of the entire day.....it is what will keep your memories going so if you want someone who can capture every part of that day perfectly 283 Photography is the way to go!!!!

    Jessica was wonderful! She was all over the place catching our special moments. She's so easy and fun to work with and is very open to ideas I had for photos. Our engagement session turned out great, and I can't wait to see the remainder of our wedding photos as well.

    We could not have asked for more from the photographer for my daughter's wedding. Jessica captured the feel and essance of the day. The wedding day can be such a blur for the couple so to have such great pictures to look back on has been a great joy. It amazes me that she caught some very special moments that she only had a couple seconds to capture...she was so aware of what to capture and we did not even know she was at the wedding..she did such a great job of being invisiable but got done what we needed. When my daughter got engaged we were aware of the disappointments/stress that so many people we knew had with their wedding photographers. We are so thankful to say that is not our story with 283 Photography. Thank You so very much for the joy that your pictures have brought my daughter and her husband and us.

    Jessica was incredible to work with and I would recommend her to anyone I know needing pictures of any kind! She was always available to answer any questions I had throughout the entire wedding process. I never had to wait longer than 24 hours to hear back from her. On our wedding day she definitely helped me stay calm as things were running a little late, she told me not to worry. She truly has a passion and an incredible talent for what she does. She never seemed pushy throughout the day and was open to any ideas we had. Jessica captured the moments and details to tell the whole story of our day. We never noticed her during the ceremony or at the reception, she blended in and did not need to be in our face at all that day. In going through all 900+ of our wedding photos my husband and I relived our big day and noticed details that we had missed. She also captured hundreds of different expressions from not only the bride and groom but wedding party, family members and the guests. 283 photography is AMAZING! We LOVED having her and thankful for all she did for us on our wedding day!

    Jessica at 283 Photography was flexible, professional, and thorough. But, more importantly, she cared about the photographs she provided for us. She spent endless hours editing our photos, and they turned out to be more beautiful than we could have hoped for! She captured many special moments of our wedding day, that we will be lucky enough to remember through her pictures for the years to come! We don't feel you could find anyone more talented in the Sioux Falls area.

    Jessica is the best photographer that I have ever worked with. She is friendly, she is accommodating, she is professional, and she really has an eye for photography. I was so happy with all of our pictures, both engagement and wedding. She worked with the other vendors from our wedding to make sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. We really built a relationship with her, and I look forward to having her be our photographer for the future. I would choose nobody else.

    Jessica was absolutely amazing! She was so sweet, fun, and calmed me when I was a little anxious about having my picture taken (I hate pictures!). I also believe that she is truly passionate about her job, which was amazing... I didn't feel at all like she couldn't wait to be done or didn't want to be there. In fact, due to weather, Jessica stayed longer than planned at the reception to get some shots that we couldn't get done outside. I highly recommend 283 Photography!

I didn't feel like we were missing any photos and she was so flexible when we ran a little over our timeframe.

    283 photography was one of the best choices I made in wedding planning. From the moment we started our engagement shoot, I knew we had made the right decision. Jessica was the perfect balance of being laid back and flexible, while still directing the shoot. We had so many positive comments on our wedding day about how professional and personable Jessica was during our wedding. The photos turned out beautifully! She captured the details, our personalities, and so many special moments from the day! AMAZING!!

    Jessica was great to work with. We felt that she captured our day perfectly. There are so many pictures I don't know how I am going to decide what to have printed, but it is great that we have the rights to the prints as part of the package we purchased.

    Because of Jessica, my husband Jessie and I have outstanding engagement and wedding pictures that will last forever. We've had numerous people compliment on her photography both for our engagement session and our wedding. Everyone loves her creativity and unique ideas. She is very easy going and open to your own ideas and feedback. She is the best photographer I have ever worked with. Her photography is well worth the money and you will have no regrets choosing 283 photography!

    When I planned my wedding, we knew right away that we needed to have 283 photography take our pictures. We had a date set in September that would work best for everyone else that we wanted to be involved in our big day, but 283 photography was booked. So, we decided to change our date to a day where she could be present and everyone else would have to deal with it. She, Jessica, took our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures and they turned out AMAZING! I love her photos because they aren't the "cookie-cutter" photos that everyone else takes. She improvizes based on her vision, which I completely trust and, in the end, I got pictures that will last me a lifetime that we all love! I HIGHLY recommend 283 photography to any brides out there looking and to anyone in general requesting quality photos!

    Jessica was VERY responsive and the quality speaks for themselves. The pictures are gorgeous. She was very very good to work with and very flexibile.
    I have worked with many photographers because one daughter is in Entertainment and I can tell you Jessica was and is VERY good. When we had questions, she answered them immediately and she was at the hair salon on time and ready to go and also at the wedding and reception. I would suggest that you book a head of time so you are lucky enough to get her. She is open to all your ideas and plus she has many to share if you are wanting help with ideas of some pictures.
    When you are busy making sure everything is in place before the wedding Jessica is excellent on having you give her the itinerary of what is happening and who will be at the wedding etc and you dont have to stress about if the photographer is going to be there....she is there early and ready to go. Not only is that something really good, but the pictures speak for themselves...very BEAUTIFUL!!!
