Jessa's exceptional eye and personal aesthetic blends with her collaborative spirit to create magic for every client.
Ever since I can remember, I have had the desire to capture fleeting moments. You know, the ones where you wish you could bottle them up and keep them forever. Human emotion and connection are endlessly interesting to me and it's why I choose to document this pivotal day in people's lives.
Weddings serve as a captivating blend of fashion, design, tradition, and immersive experiences. My time spent at Giorgio Armani and the photo department of Instyle Magazine have prepared me immensely for the fast-paced nature of a wedding day.
Allow me to paint a vivid picture: envision me dashing through the streets of Manhattan during Scarlett Johansson's magazine cover photoshoot. My mission was to find various shades of nude undergarments in twenty minutes. These pressure-filled moments were reminiscent of a scene from "The Devil Wears Prada," and have undoubtedly prepared me for my life's work of photographing weddings.
A decade has transpired since photographing my first wedding and since that first day, I have had the privilege of photographing over 300 couples and their love stories from the coastline where I live to Beverly Hills, Charleston, Newport and beyond.
With my film camera in hand, I have honed in on my signature aesthetic and approach to wedding days that creates an instant nostalgia for my clients and their families. My hope is simple, for you to be transported back to how you felt on your wedding day whenever you need that sweet reminder.
