My style is best described as natural, candid and photo-journalistic. I’m your raw feelings, real love, “You captured exactly how it felt!” photographer who loves genuine people and a wedding party that PARTIES! I'll give you natural portraits and incredible shots of the whole day! If your wedding goal is to have FUN then I'm the girl you want in the middle of it with you.
Rockville, Maryland is the place we call home. I love to travel for weddings and have shot all around the DC area, East & West Coasts, and Texas (yo hablo Español!) Wedding photography is my full time job and I'm completely devoted to my clients and their wedding day. You won't find any paid models or styled shoots on my website- just real people who are really in love. Let me give your love the time, talent and beauty it deserves.

“Hands-down Jessica was my favorite person to work with through the whole wedding process. This is saying something because we worked with a lot of amazing people. The moments she captured are priceless - the whole wedding day was a whirlwind and it was so nice to see pictures of moments that I had no idea happened. She truly understood our style and she was able to capture the excitement, joy, and love so wonderfully.
After all of the pomp and circumstance, we wanted a big dance party and Jessica was out on the dance floor the entire time! We got some of the best candid photos! When we have shared our photos with family and friends, everyone has commented that she is one of the best photographers they have ever seen. We also received so many compliments from guests about how genuinely nice Jessica and her team were. She captured such an important part of our life so perfectly and she was an absolutely joy to work with!"

“My wife and I worked with Jessica to photograph our wedding, our rehearsal dinner, and our “getting ready" shots. Jessica was fantastic in every way. She was extremely responsive, and met with us before finalizing the contract to make sure that we were a good match, and we really enjoyed the chance to speak to her about our style, our wishes, and her photographing preferences.
The photos that she took during the wedding were wonderful. She captured all the most important moments, and other moments we didn't know were happening until we saw the photos. The quality of the pictures, the lighting, the editing.... it was all fantastic. She was personable, friendly, and very professional, and we loved that in candid photos taken by our guests, we could see that Jessica was smiling behind her camera while photographing us walking down the aisle and was actually feeling what an important day this was to us.
Lastly, as a same-sex couple, we highly recommend working with Jess, as she treated us just like any other couple getting married, and helped to make our wedding a wonderful day with many wonderful photos to remember it. In short, we wish we could hire Jess for every important life event, because working with her was a true pleasure."

“Words cannot begin to describe how Jessica made my day so amazing! Working with her leading to the wedding was so easy. She listened to what I was thinking and gave feedback and her professional suggestions. We even shared a Pinterest board. Lol
On the day of, she worked around all of the issues including late makeup times, altered ceremony locations, etc. She even acted as the onsite security when bystanders were being loud. Lol. She was amazing and I can honestly say we loved every single picture. She captured the day perfectly. You looked at the pictures and even if you weren't there, you felt like you were.
Jessica is a gem and I promise all other brides she is the best decision you can make to capture your day."
Emily & Dan
“Jessica shot both our engagement and wedding photos. She was very flexible with our schedules, responded promptly to emails, and was amazing on our wedding day.
Our engagement shoot was after a big blizzard and we shot in about 3 feet of snow for most of the day. Jessica surprised us with hot coffee, muffins, and was right there in the deep snow with us. Jessica goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and appreciated during your special day. Her attention and dedication are worth every penny. She truly is a great person and photographer. She captures the small details and special moments. We received our pictures quickly and in both online and thumb drive form.
Our family and friends can't stop raving about how nice the pictures are. We would 100% use Jessica again and recommend her services!"

“What can I say about Jessica?!?! She is absolutely AMAZING! We hired her for our engagement session while I was living in Georgia and had to start planning my wedding (husband was at boot camp). I didn't even know where to start with the planning but Jessica was so helpful with ideas about flowers, DJ's and literally ANYTHING I asked her about. She literally offered to even help with planning and putting things together for our wedding up until a few weeks before the actual day. I knew right away that she was going to be amazing. I LOVE pictures and this was the most important thing for me on my wedding day.
Once we moved up to the area, we set up our engagement session and we took Jessica's advice about having the session in Old Town. I was really nervous because my husband is not a big picture guy and we are probably the most giggly couple she ever took pictures of but literally EVERY SINGLE PICTURE was beautiful! The pictures were so us and we loved her style. Simple and just using nature to enhance every picture which I love! Also, she was easy to work with and told us exactly what to do, which we were nervous about. When we got the engagement pictures, I was so excited for our wedding day!
When our day arrived, she texted beforehand and asked if we needed anything last minute on her way. We needed an item and of course she got it for us! Again, amazing! She was like a super hero on our wedding day! She was snapping pictures left and right, and both of my parents commented on how she made sure to make my husband and I the center of every picture without feeling like she was in our face! When we got the pictures from our wedding, there were 400 more than she originally promised us which was AMAZING! I literally don't even know what to do with all the pictures! I want to print all of them! If you're looking for a photographer, this is your girl! She's amazing and delivers beautiful pictures!"

“I don't know where to begin this review. All I can say is that I could not have imagined booking a more professional, sweet, talented, and well-seasoned photographer for the most important day of my life. Jessica served as more than just my picture taker... she literally hung by my side all night and was super attentive and helpful. She felt like a member of the family hanging out with me, and we all had a blast with her.
There's some key factors you'd want to consider when booking someone to capture the moments spent on your wedding day. To me, the most important thing was that I was comfortable, and everyone I love was included in my memories for years to come! We were all extremely impressed with Jessica's adaptability, keen instinct, and natural art for what she does. She handled a very busy, stressful event and made it fun and exciting.
This girl worked her toosh off. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her, and we would recommend her time and time again. With Jessica, you get the quality and experience you deserve on your wedding day."

“I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jessica...She is the best photographer. She seriously goes above and beyond for you. She ended up doing two engagement photo shoots for my husband and I, she offered some unique thoughts for us to use at our wedding, she was willing to help out with any last minute things that needed to be done the day of the wedding, she takes AMAZING photos. Jessica truly captured our love at our wedding. The photos are breath taking...and this is coming from me; a picky person who didn't think she was photogenic...hence the two engagement photo shoots.
Aside from Jessica's gorgeous photos and photography skills her personality is very calm, down to earth, and sweet. Jessica is super nice and friendly, very easy to work with, professional, and willing to go above and beyond for you. Jessica is a very personal person we did not just talk about wedding stuff but she also shared her thoughts and experiences in the different cities she has lived. My husband and I moved right after our wedding. Jessica was able to provide some of her experiences to give us perspective on where we might want to be.
At our wedding Jessica made sure to give her thoughts about when/where to take photos with the different lighting outside, she made sure to tell us hey we should go do this soon but was not pushy about it, she made sure not to just capture our moments at the wedding but many great moments of our guest....which I love seeing photos at the wedding not just a million of me and my husband.
I am so thankful I found Jessica and that she photographed our wedding. Seriously go with her....You will not regret it. There is no one better than her!"
