We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! We got on instantly with Jessica and knew that she would be the best person to capture our wedding day. Planning a wedding in a pandemic wasn't easy but Jessica was so flexible and supportive throughout all the changes and rearrangements. On the wedding day, it felt like Jessica was also one of our guests. She blended in seamlessly and put us and everyone else at ease. Jessica took the time to make sure she knew all the finer details to ensure she captured every moment we wanted - even staying much later into the evening than planned! We have the most beautiful wedding photos which have captured our day and special moments perfectly. We are so grateful and thank Jessica for her professionalism throughout and giving us the best gift in the most amazing photos and memories. I would highly recommend her to anyone for any special occasion.

We are so grateful to her!
Jessica did our wedding photography and we are so grateful to her for being so accommodating with the many changes we had to make because of coronavirus restrictions. She made a real effort to make sure she understood exactly how we wanted our wedding day to run and she fitted in perfectly with it all. We enjoyed having Jessica there on the day and are very happy with how the photos have turned out 😊

Would definitely recommend!
Planning a wedding in 2020 has certainly been a rollercoaster! Every time we had to change our plans, Jessica was helpful and accommodating. We’re so thankful to have had Jessica capture our Wedding - such a memorable and special day. Jessica made us feel so relaxed and comfortable and we have some wonderful photos to capture the memories of our day! Would definitely recommend!

So happy we chose her as our wedding photographer!
Jessica was just wonderful! We are so grateful to have so many beautiful wedding photographs. She captured the day perfectly. We chose Jessica as we wanted natural photographs bursting with colour and she did not disappoint. Our photographs capture the different emotions of the day and are vibrant and vivid, just as we had hoped. On the day itself I think Jessica had magic powers which made herself invisible at times. She was in the perfect spots to get the best photographs without you knowing she was even there! She was fantastic at suggesting areas to have photographs taken in and displayed creativity and a lot of knowledge and experience. We had some rain during our couples photographs and she really took care of us. She encouraged us to get as many photos as we could, then selflessly offered her coat and helped juggle the veil, umbrellas, bouquet and navigating the walk to our venue via a busy town. There is no doubt Jessica’s priority is giving you the best experience on your wedding day and capturing the style of photographs you wanted. She is so conscientious and our experience from start to finish was friendly and professional. We would recommend Jessica to all our friends and family and are so happy we chose her as our wedding photographer.

Excellent from beginning to end!
Jessica was so great, communication was excellent from beginning to end. Finished product and attention to detail was lovely, especially the presentation of our photos. Would 100% use Jessica again but hopefully we won't need to as we only plan on being married once, 🤞🤣. Thanks again Jessica. ❤️

She got everything right!
Jessica was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! She always responded to queries quickly, she was lovely, thorough and professional at our pre-wedding consultation and was wonderful on the day itself :) On the day, even though it was raining quite considerably, Jess took it in her stride and was really helpful in getting us outside to do couples shots, which looked fantastic despite the weather! Jess was a friendly presence at our wedding (she felt like a guest!) and was also unobtrusive so most of the time we forgot someone was taking our pictures! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jess to anyone - she got everything right, from the big important stuff, to the little touches. 5 stars!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

One this Summer, when the Dad was giving his Daughter away he kissed her and said "I loved you first" with a tear in his eye. Ohhh the feels!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, relaxed, colourful, fun & real

What about your business are you most proud of?

I live for weddings, in the 10+ years I've been doing this my passion has never once dipped. I love weddings and how each one is different. You never quite know how the day is going to go (even with all the best planning!). I love how emotional the day is, how truly special and intimate it is. I never take my being there for granted.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Never lose sight that 'It's your day!'. So many of my couples try to make everyone else happy. Most people just want to see you happy and are there to share your big day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Music sheets/lyrics tied around the jars on the tables. It added that touch that was all about them, and also was a talking point for the guests too.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Lots of chatting and prep beforehand so the day runs really smoothly. Ensuring we get that nice and relaxed feeling on the day itself to the best of our ability.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

One with your closest family and siblings. I still use my own wedding pictures taken for Fathers Day, Mothers Day, etc. These pictures will be passed down for years to come.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

One of bride's had her horse brought to the reception and wanted a picture. It was stunning, I love it when couples' want their furry loved one's involved in the day also.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Planning - plan for it and then it's no surprise. Make sure your venue works for you should the weather turn and make back up plans.

Describe how you got into photography.

I studied photography & once I got my qualifications I started up my business. 100+ weddings on and still loving it!!
