"Other than marrying my best friend and being surround by friends and family, Jessie was hands down the best part of our wedding day. We were a COVID couple (postponed a year) and planned our Maine wedding while living in Maryland. Despite a tumultuous 2+ years of planning, Jessie exceeded expectations at every turn. I loved working with her.
And then we got our photos back... And I was absolutely stunned. Hands down the most gorgeous shots (lighting, posing, everything!) that I've ever seen of myself and my favorite wedding photos I've ever seen (okay, I might be a little biased here..). I work on a creative team with professional photographers and videographers daily, and Jessie's talent is truly unparalleled.
She captured little mannerisms that she had no idea were so core to our guests. From the way my dad held his piece of paper during his toast to the way my husband hugged my mom, there were just little details that feel so 'us.' I couldn't articulate it, but she instinctively knew when to snap. I was/still am blown away.
If her talent aren't enough, Jessie is an absolute delight to work with. My husband and I kept saying to each other that we wished she was a wedding guest as well! You end up spending so much time with your photographer on your wedding day, and I didn't realize beforehand how comforting it would be to have Jessie's perfect mix of calm and humor.
We got married in October and I'm writing this review in March simply because I was overwhelmed at the task of properly thanking her for playing such an important role on our big day. I was speechless when I saw the photos, and to this day, I don't have the words to express our gratitude. I finally am forcing myself to write a review 1) because Jessie deserves all the positive reviews and 2) we are moving to Boston. I will undoubtedly be traveling the 1.5-2 hours to have every family photo taken by Jessie for as long as she'll have us. Honestly, we probably would have traveled from Maryland for her!
Planning a wedding is stressful. Book Jessie and I promise, your photos will not only be zero stress, but you'll have a friend along the way!"

“We planned our Maine wedding remotely from Brooklyn, all while buying a house/moving, and dealing with some job stuff and THANK GOD for Jessie. I was doing virtually all the planning myself and am so grateful that she was kind and helpful and organized throughout - without which we would have certainly had some trouble. She helped us through all sorts of decisions we were making in regards to timing and logistics to make sure we had enough time for the photos we wanted without interrupting too much of our flow. She and her second shooters were so great to work with throughout the day. Despite wedding craziness and nerves, I knew I didn't have to worry about photography and felt confident the entire time that they were doing a great job. I was right - the results are fantastic and will be incredible to have for years to come. I am also a photographer myself, so I have a perspective that many others may not, and I swear she has an eye and a talent that is worth every penny. Her shooting and editing style is beautiful, modern, and natural and not overdone. I've attached a few of my favorites from the day. If you're considering a videographer, please do consider a package with Jessie for this. She did incredible work and we are so glad to have our video. We drank wine from our honeymoon and sobbed the whole time watching it. It's an incredible keepsake and I look forward to watching it on every anniversary for the rest of our lives. On top of all of this, my sister-in-law loved Jessie's work so much that she hired her for her own wedding this coming September. She's also planning hers remotely, and so far Jessie has once again proven to be an asset to their planning and even met up with them at their venue walkthrough. I can't wait to see her work from their big day. You can trust her with capturing all the emotion, fun, and love on your wedding day.”

"Jessie was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. Her and I had a few phone calls leading up to the big day to discuss the shot list and to get to know each other. On the day of the wedding, she came a few hours before the ceremony to make sure everyone felt comfortable in front of the camera. We were very pleased with the pictures. She was able to capture everything we wanted and more. My only problem now is that I have too many photos that I want to frame!! Highly recommended! Thank you so much, Jessie."

"Jessie is absolutely the best! She has a great personality and it's fun to work with her, but most importantly her professional and artistic work speaks for itself. Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful and she captured the most intricate details of emotion. From my mother-in-law dabbing her eyes during our first dance to the artistic presentation of my wedding gown to the shoes, to the rings -- all of it. There wasn't a single photo that we didn't download because we absolutely loved all of them! Every single person that has seen Jessie's photos of our wedding day has told us that they felt emotional even without being there in person. I've gotten many compliments saying that it all seemed like we were filming a movie -- soooo perfect in every way. I can't recommend her enough and I would work with her again and again in a heartbeat!"

“My husband and I were lucky enough to have Jessie as our wedding photographer. We clicked the second we met which made our whole experience unforgettable. Not only is she extremely professional and incredibly talented, she is also so sweet and shooting with her was a blast! She took so many of the inspiration pictures into account while shooting (without me even noticing!) and the pictures came out amazing! I didn’t realize how fast the day went by until it was actually over. I am so grateful we have beautiful pictures that remind us of all the special moments that flew by! Thank you Jessie and Brandon for being so great and for capturing our day so beautifully!!”

“Jessie flew all the way to NC to take my wedding photos. I'm military and my husband is from Virginia so it was a huge gathering that everyone had to come together for. Pictures to me are important so when Jessie and her fiancé came I never worried for a second if they were capturing my day. When we finally received them, I was blown away. She captured every important moment and I felt like I was reliving my special day. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! She is so fantastic!”

"Jessie and her team were amazing photographers & videographers! We loved having them at our wedding. They were so fluid with the day-of plan that I never had to think about what I needed to do next as they led us into everything. From the start, Jessie was very excited to work with us and very communicative which made me feel so good! We had an engagement session with her as well. Her style of photography is breathtaking with the way she plays with the light and captures the little things in the moment. I couldn't recommend Jessie enough. You don't even notice them during the actual ceremony or reception as they are all dressed in black and out of the way. They were highly professional and very friendly. Thank you, Jessie!"
