I get it
You’re putting so much of yourselves into your wedding - your personality, style, maybe even some inside jokes. So why should your photos look like everyone else’s? Or worse yet - stiff and uncomfortable?
Here’s my hot take: if your wedding day represents you, your photos should, too.
You want to remember your wedding day the way it happened, and since we don’t quite have time machine tech worked out yet, photos are the way to accomplish such a feat.
So, let’s skip the awkward poses and trendy edits and opt for an easy-going photo experience coupled with timeless images that will transport you back to your day year after year.
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 what it’s like to look at wedding photos long after the wedding day has passed.
Everywhere I look, I see images being edited in a way that may (or may not) stand the test of time. We may look back at the fashion we were wearing and say that it’s out of date (hello my mother-in-law’s 80s style puffy sleeved dresses!) but the photos themselves should be pure and reflect what you experienced.
You’re putting together the most amazing day for yourselves, and you deserve to remember it as it happened!
That’s exactly WHY I do WHAT I do.
As for that timeless style — a photography instructor once told me to “enhance, but don’t change” images. This has stuck with me and made me appreciate the photos I have of my own life and milestones.
Lucky you, you’re here and can start with your timeless photography story at your wedding!

" [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!!
