Hi, I’m jess!
I am a photographer specializing in weddings and lifestyle portraits.
I am drawn to capturing the beauty in your realness through light and bright images in dreamy, lush, outdoor locations in St. Petersburg, Florida and beyond.
My approach is to capture real moments of you laughing and loving in beautifully composed photographs. I thrive off your energy and find ways to keep you moving so that every image comes together naturally.
My favorite compliment as a photographer is that i make you comfortable in front of my camera. I usually do that by being silly, asking questions and using the time to really connect to you and your story.
A Portland, Oregon native, I moved to St. Petersburg, Florida in October 2017 from San Francisco, California. My cross-country move inspired me to leave behind a career in corporate apparel merchandising to pursue my passion of photography full-time. I still side hustle for my first-love, merchandising, through freelance jobs and my own brand small/homies! Just call me the girl with 3 jobs - I can’t help myself!
I am loving life in the sunshine in St. Pete with my husband, 1 year-old son and French Bulldog!

I keep my instagram a combination of my life and my work because I think it’s important that you know me as a person and a photographer if we get to work together!
