Hi, I’m Jess. 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 have been photographing wedding for over seven years, from 2-person elopements to extravagant ceremonies with 500 guests around NYC, Washington, D.C. and beyond.
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 would love to hear more about your wedding and meet you to toast your engagement!
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, a vanilla latte and dreaming about my next adventure traveling somewhere new.
