Your Wedding Photography Experience

So you’re dreaming up your magical wedding day and are on a mission to find a photographer who will capture those moments for you to cherish for a lifetime… I’m here to give you photos that stand the test of time and are the perfect reflection of your unique wedding experience.

You’ve begun preparing for your joy-filled wedding day celebration with all of your favorite people and now you’re ready to find the right photographer to document it all.

Kind of an overwhelming task, I get it!

Wedding planning is filled with plenty of stress, to say the least – the last thing you need to be worried about is if all of the magic once your day (finally) arrives will be captured. I mean… aside from your wedding day itself and saying “I do” (of course), getting to relive your day for years to come through photos is one of the most exciting parts of all of this and it’s important to find someone who seamlessly joins the celebration and documents the occasion from start to finish.

Great photos come from a great experience which is why when you work with me, you’ll get…

Peace of Mind

Regardless of the lighting, weather, or unforeseen circumstances, I’m here to skillfully capture every moment, ensuring your memories are preserved beautifully.

Collaboration with Vendors

You can trust that I’ll work closely with your planner, day-of coordinator, and other vendors to make sure everything runs smoothly for you on your special day.

Support and Encouragement

You can rely on receiving sincere support and encouragement from me, ensuring that if you find yourself overwhelmed, you’ll have someone in your corner.

Prompt Sneak Peeks

I’ll make sure to send you a sneak peek gallery of images within just 24 hours of your special day, so you can start cherishing those beautiful moments in record time!

Prompt Communication 

Timely and responsive email communications to address any of your questions and concerns leading up to your special day and to provide guidance where I can.

Undivided Attention

I prioritize booking only one wedding each weekend, allowing me to dedicate myself fully to delivering the best possible experience for your wedding day.

The icing on the cake?

All Packages Include an Album

Despite your best intentions to create an album yourselves, in my experience, amidst the whirlwind of getting married, honeymooning, and settling back into everyday life post-wedding, creating the perfect album often gets overlooked or becomes an overwhelming task.

Every couple I work with gets a handcrafted, heirloom-quality album that tells the story of their big day like no other. I mean, your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion that you’ll want to relive over and over, right?!

Of course you’ll have all of the photos digitally to treasure forever, but there’s just something special about unplugging from technology completely. Flipping through the pages of your wedding album creates an immersive experience like no other and gives you two the chance to really soak in the magic of your special day, reliving every heartfelt moment.

That’s why I make it my mission to take the stress out of creating your perfect album. From thoughtfully designing the layout and cover fabric to working with a top-of-the-line company based in Poland, I’m genuinely here to give you the most seamless experience from start to finish.

Hey there, I’m Jess!

Whether you’re having a big celebration with all of your favorite people in downtown Richmond or opting for a more intimate experience in the mountains of Shenandoah National Park, I’m here to photograph your day with professionalism and genuine excitement for your love story.

I’m not just here to capture those once-in-a-lifetime moments, though, I’m here to be your sidekick and right-hand woman throughout this incredible journey. Let’s be honest, while weddings are filled with beautiful moments and so much joy, there’s also unpredictability.

Whether it’s navigating unexpected delays, weather changes, or any other curveballs that come our way, I’ve got you covered. With years of experience navigating every scenario imaginable (even bears!), I’ll be there to bring a calming and reassuring presence to make your day magical no matter the circumstances we encounter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you require to book?

To secure your date on my calendar, I ask for a flat-rate retainer of $2,000.

How do you accept payment?

I have an online payment processor that you can pay through with a debit card, credit card, or bank transfer.

Do you recommend we hire a second photographer or assistant?

I don’t include second photographers in my packages as I feel like there are so many factors that go into whether or not a couple needs to hire them (such as number of guests, getting ready situations, etc.) so I’m happy to recommend based on your unique day!

What equipment do you use and are you insured?

Yes, I am insured. I photograph elopements with two Sony A7iiis and a backup Sony A7riii, which are dual card slot mirrorless cameras. Photographing weddings with dual card slot cameras allows me to back up the photos I take from the moment they are captured so that if anything happens to one of my cards, your photos are safe.

How long until we get to see our photos?

I know how excited to see your photos so I pride myself in offering a quick turnaround time for your images. I deliver a sneak peek gallery of 10-20 images within 24 hours of your wedding day. Your full gallery of images will be delivered in 2 months (8 weeks)!

Is there an option for expedited editing?

You may upgrade to a 4-week delivery time for $495. This must be discussed and paid for prior to your wedding day so I can properly arrange my schedule to allow for expedited delivery.
