Meet Jessica

I am a wife and mother of two beautiful girls, Kate & Hannah. I love to cook, travel and drink lots of coffee!! I’m a hopeless romantic and you’ll likely find me tearing up during your wedding vows and first dance. Being a mom of two beautiful girls, I also have a strong appreciation for family. I realize how quickly time goes by and I love capturing those special milestones!

My Philosophy

I feel honored to participate in every wedding and portrait session I shoot and I treat both the day and people involved with the highest level of respect. I believe my job is to capture the beauty in each wedding and portrait session in the most authentic way, unobtrusively, honestly and joyfully! I want you to look back at your photos 30 years from now and relive all the moments like they were yesterday. My approach is contemporary and always in the best of taste. I realize that each couple and family is unique in their style, personality and biography and strive to produce images that reflect that individuality. So whether you are trusting me with your wedding day, boudoir or newborn session I promise to capture it with timeless elegance and true passion.
