i get it
You're having a wedding to celebrate your union to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
But you're not willing to throw your values out the door in exchange for a party!
Guess what? You don't have to!
I am your photographer, sure. But I'm also here to make sure you and your loved ones are free to be yourselves.
I'm here to be your sustain-a-buddy — an equal partner in creating a more sustainable gathering.
AND we're going to have a f*cking amazing time doing it!
that's why i do things differently
My goal is to prepare you throughout your engagement so that, come your wedding day, it will feel like we’re hanging out as friends!
We’ll make sure that your timeline includes every moment you want captured, from getting ready with your loved ones, to the first kiss, to sharing your first dance (or skeeball).
No detail will be overlooked in our prep, so you won’t feel rushed on your day or be left with missing family photos.
I understand that you don't get married every day, let alone have someone follow you around with a camera.
I use a style of photography called “prompt-ography” to draw out only the best smiles and that pure look of affection your partner always gives you. Trust me, the more relaxed you are, the more you’ll love your photos!
Once your amazingness is captured on digital files, I’ll enhance them so you’ll have some truly timeless art to hang on your walls, post in your feed, and share with loved ones.
In 50 years, at your anniversary party, you’ll be able to share exactly what your wedding day was like!
You need someone on your side who understands who you are and what is most important to you.
Gone are the days of pleasing everyone else on your wedding day, or going through the day stressed out!
Welcome, you disruptor, you!
Together, we're going to make sure that you and your loved ones feel safe, respected, and valued.
We're going to lower the environmental impact of your celebration the very best we can, in an absolutely judgement-free zone.
AND we're going to make sure you have a hell of a time at YOUR OWN WEDDING. You're going to be able to spend time together, relax, and celebrate in a way that is meaningful to you.
Oh, and we'll get you the photos to remember it forever!! Ya ready??

" [Jess] was so great about suggesting different poses and helping us feel comfortable in front of the camera, even in cold Minnesotan winter!"
Jess was amazing from the first contact all the way to our actual wedding day and throughout the follow ups afterwards!!
From the first time we spoke, it was clear she was the perfect fit for our special day. Her approach was very structured and transparent, so we knew exactly when and how the process worked as well as what we could expect on the day of.
We were coordinating everything from abroad, and Jess was always available via email or video chat to go through any questions we had. She offered great advice, and helped us to create a perfect timeline for the day.
Once we actually met on the day of the wedding, it felt more like meeting a friend! She made us feel so comfortable and I was 100% confident about all our special moments being captured. Jess was great at keeping us on schedule which in turn helped us stay calm and really get to enjoy all the moments throughout the day.

We were so surprised to already get a sneak peek of our photos two days after the wedding, and we were blown away by the photos. Each moment was so intimately and expertly captured, and we will cherish these memories forever!!
I would 100% recommend Jess to anyone looking for an amazing photographer!!
