You want to feel comfortable and relaxed on your wedding day.
You want to enjoy it.
And you want to remember it, just as it was.
My style of photography is intentional, yet authentic; classic, yet unique to you.
I love relationships, and I love documenting them.
So let's get to know each other.
And let's make art together.
I'm a homeschooling mama to three and a portrait photographer in southern Minnesota. I love people and any opportunity to be social and creative. Connecting with people is one reason why I love what I do. I delight in creating a captured memory for you to treasure.
Jessica received her B.A. in Graphic Design at the University of Northwestern, Saint Paul in 2007, where she also studied photography. She went on to work at a portrait studio in Maple Grove until she moved to Southern Minnesota in 2009. She then began photographing for Womeninc Magazine until 2013. Jessica has been photographing area families for over 10 years. She continues to take photography classes and tutorials, striving to always improve her art and better serve you.
Jessica recently became a certified volunteer with the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep foundation as an affiliated photographer.
You've put so much time into planning your wedding day, you deserve to sit back and enjoy it. You should be able to trust that your moments will be documented, and done so beautifully.
Where do you start with a Photographer that can make you feel like your just hanging out with a good friend and make you smile in the picture and not for the picture! I’ve never felt so confident in any photos of myself until I got my engagement photos, then came the year wait for the wedding and she probably got sick of my reels of cute ideas! But the wedding day came we sweat our butts off but let me tell you, you definitely will cry lots of happy tears when you see them photos! She definitely won’t be getting rid of us for our photography needs.
Oh my LANTA....Hands down Jessica is the best. She’s an incredible artist. Absolutely give her the room to play, and you won’t be sorry. Her work is beautiful, and she is such a kind, generous, friendly, beautiful soul. She will have my family’s business from here on out.
Jessica was everything we wanted in a photographer! She was so easy to work with, and had the best ideas for pictures. She even agreed to my crazy idea of doing fireworks in the middle of the street for some of our wedding pictures! How many other photographers will sing and play Baby Shark to get the littles to smile and pay attention??!! Jess did amazing with getting their attention. I highly recommend her and her photography skills!
Jessica is the sweetest photographer to work with. She took our wedding pictures and helped organize the flow of the day & elegantly corralled the wild groomsmen, oodles of family, etc. - resulting in fantastic photos- fun, romantic, high quality, creative, and just our style. She made us look better than we probably did on the hottest September day in history. Jessica made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and for 2 people that don’t enjoy getting photographed, that was just what we needed to feel calm on a crazy day.
I will be in touch with you shortly!
You deserve the absolute best. That means the photographs of your dreams as well as a photographer you connect with. That's why I find it so important to get to know each other before booking. I do not take every wedding I am approached with. It is truly important to me that we are the right fit for each other.
I'd love to hear more about you and your story. Please fill out the contact form, and let's get in touch!
