Seven years and 100+ weddings arould the globe later, I have created a formula to capture every moment of a wedding day, while also leaving room for creativity and spontaneity. Every single wedding is different, but just like dancing, a skilled professional can anticipate a moment before it even happens. In this world of Pinterest, Instagram, and an overflow of inspiration, I wanted to create pillars in my business to always stay rooted in what is truly important. Just like the white, clean-lined pillars of ancient Greece, the beautiful country where my family is from, a business with structure and balance can stand the test of time. Here are the foundations of every wedding I capture.
Each year, I will be making a considerable donation to Surf Rider Foundation. Surf Rider is a charity that is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's oceans, waves and beaches. The ocean is our true happy place, so it's the perfect partnership.
Taking time to get to know your family and creating meaningful portraits of your loved ones is something I strive to do at each and every wedding. Creating handmade heirlooms such as linen-bound albums to pass down through generations is a true passion of mine.
Through a blend of careful preparation and in-the-moment creativity, I create stories that are unique to each and every wedding day. your color choices and aesthetic are all taken into careful consideration as I know how much thought is put into every detail.

INTERVIEWS: Tea with Jaine, Podcast
Jessa and her team are absolutely amazing. From all the planning stages to the actual wedding day they make the process painless! She makes the day so carefree for the bride and groom and creates magic with her camera while doing so! She is so down to earth and it feels natural being in front of the camera with her!
Where do we begin...It’s a big decision in choosing a wedding photographer for your big day. Maybe one of the biggest decisions. Especially if you're someone like me who has always been obsessed with capturing special memories with photos. Jessa and her team made our big day the most magical and seamless day. We got to meet her for an engagement shoot a year out from our wedding and we knew from that moment on we were in the best hands. Jessa listened to our vision and from there it was in her hands to bring it to life - and she absolutely delivered. We felt at ease on our special day and have the most amazing photos to share and look back on to relive it. Her and her team captured everything from start to finish, all the details, laughed with us throughout the day and made everyone feel so comfortable. Everyone has not stopped commenting on our photos and we truly can relive our day through them. Jessa was such a special and big part of our day and we can’t thank the team enough for everything!
I was so inspired by Jessa's refreshing approach to wedding photography. She has such a creative eye that cannot be matched. After meeting Jessa for the first time, we immediately knew we needed to book with her. She is such a genuine and passionate person and this shows even more through her extremely beautiful work. We love that Jessa has a boutique-style approach and truly focuses on each couple. We felt so comfortable with her on the day of our wedding. She truly cares about all the little (yet very important) details that each bride pours their heart into. I am SO in love with the images she captured on our wedding day. I cannot recommend Jessa enough. She will be the BEST decision you make on your wedding day. Trust me!!
Working with Jessa was the best decision I made. Her work speaks for itself and when you meet her she has a way of making you feel like you are not just a client but a friend that she truly cares for. You can tell she absolutely must love what she does, because it shines through not just in her work but in her demeanor. After the wedding was over, I was honestly sad that our working relationship had come to an end. If you get the opportunity to work with Jessa for your wedding, you will also agree it will be the best decision you made.
