get to know jess

I’m a classic middle-kid -- a creative lil’ daydreamer -- and that led me to study fine art photography in college. But I felt like everyone around me took themselves too seriously. Where were all the fun people? Then I found weddings. After assisting my first wedding I was sold and started my business shortly after. 

Eight years later and I’ve photographed weddings all over the West Coast, from poolside in Palm Springs to the vineyards in Napa, the cliffs of Positano to the shores of Jamaica. As an enneagram 7, I’m enthusiastic about a lotta things, so don’t be surprised if you hear “OMG YESSSSS!” from behind my camera about a million times. I’m also enthusiastic about disco balls and hot cheetos. I believe that inequality sucks, so know that everyone is welcome here.

When I’m not behind the camera, I love to spend my time with my husband, Chris, eating pizza, and trying to sneak more plants into our apartment.

I capture colorful, vibrant, authentic wedding photos with a FUN experience so you can stay present & cherish the mems foreva. Beyond snapping your wedding memories, I will help you relax, laugh, and feel confident in front of the camera — never awkward. Say hello to a stress-free and super fun wedding day! 

I’m constantly thinking of new ways to make the wedding process easy and fun for my couples. I pop into their inboxes regularly with useful tips to help that happen. Extroverts like me are often stereotyped as scatter-brained, but make no mistake, I’ve got an eye for detail and I’m prepared for anything and everything. Click inquire and make me your hype girl 🎉

Let’s face it — I hate saying no to people. When I have to tell a couple that I’m unavailable on their wedding date I feel like Miranda Priestly saying “that’s all”. That’s why I hired a bomb team of Bay Area and Los Angeles wedding photographers to serve even more couples!
