I’m a wedding photographer eager to discover and capture the joy, raw emotional moments and lovely little details that make every wedding unique. It is an honor to be a part of a couple’s wedding day and document the moments that they will look back on for a lifetime.

I look for the magic in the day—the graceful flow of a gown, a smile bursting on the face of a groom as he says his vows, or the sunbeams piercing through a cloud as a couple walks back down the aisle hand-in-hand. 

It is so important for me to make my couples and their families and friends feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. The connection and trust I find with each couple helps me to capture authentic moments and brings an ease to a complex day.

I live in Manhattan on the Upper West Side with my husband, my son, and my French bulldog. I'm originally from the Washington, D.C. area and moved to Brooklyn to study art and photography at Pratt Institute. 

I find inspiration around every corner of the city—the theater, the art, the food, everything. 

My favorite moments are enjoyed with a stroll through Central Park, sipping a vanilla latte and dreaming about my next adventure traveling somewhere new.

"Jessica is a fantastic photographer and wonderful person! Jessica was so easy to work with. She is prepared and organized and communicates well, making the wedding day as stress free as possible. She captured so many great memories and details from our wedding day. Highly, highly recommend!"

"Weddings are stressful and a photographer plays such a big part that she or he can really 
make or break the day.
 In Jess's case 
she absolutely made our day!"

"We could not be more thrilled! When we first met Jessica last fall, my husband and I instantly felt comfortable around her. She was incredibly knowledgeable about her field, and also genuinely interested in us, our story, etc. On the day of our wedding, Jessica and her husband arrived early to scope out the area and get a feel for where our photos could be best staged (our wedding was on the beach at a 
private residence). During the day of they were incredible - they chose places for the photos that hadn't even crossed our mind! Late in the night my husband and I noticed a full moon above the bay and asked Jess and her husband if they thought if would be possible to somehow get some moon photos. They were more than happy to accommodate and minutes later we were out by the water capturing this shot. Jess and Eric were legitimately excited to help us capture the beauty and vision of our big day. We highly recommend Jessica Schmitt Photography for any photo needs!
