Photography allows me to take my interactions with people from surface-level to true connection. Photos aren't just a tool to document someone's story—they are an invitation to become a part of it. And that invitation never gets any less special. It feels like I get to make friends for a living, all while capturing your wonderful selves in my photos.
I didn’t get into this career because I needed a job or because I was given a camera for my birthday one year.
I’ve had an eye for what makes a good photograph ever since I was a pre-teen, and I’ve had a passion for it my whole life that I couldn’t shake.
I graduated with a degree in engineering and realized that I missed having more real human connection. I kind of stumbled into wedding photography itself, but once I got there, I realized what strong passion I had for combining my love of what makes a good photograph with connecting with others. My love for photography fuels the art, and my empathy makes me love this whole wedding thing and sharing these moments with others.

"Jess did such an amazing job on our wedding photos, and she’s the sweetest! Most of the day was a blur of activities and excitement, but she captured it all perfectly. I got really emotional seeing our wedding gallery for the first time. I don’t know how she does it, but she absolutely captures the FEELING of the moment, and I relived it all looking at our gallery. The joy, excitement, nerves, laughter—it’s all there, and that is SO precious to us!"
You are an opalescent tree shark.
I can't wait to get to know you.
