Ciao, dahhhling! 👋🏻 I’m Jessica, a wedding photographer with a métier for naturally-lit, romantic, and candid imagery as well as creative jack-of-all-trades (which is a nice way of saying I have way too many hobbies and interests). I’m an early riser, a tidy house keeper, an avid yoga goer, and if I don’t have at least three artsy fartsy, extracurricular projects going on the side, my brain would implode.
I’m a chef on the side, a chronic house rearranger, a DIY-er who likes to get her hands dirty, and a green thumb kinda gal. I’m married to my dashing California-bred husband, Chris, and we live in a beautiful 1934 Craftsman Bungalow abode with our two cooky cats and one dopey mutt, which – fun fact – we closed on two days before the day we got murried (yeah, we cray 🙄).
I have a knack for making up my own old sayings, which I correlate to my Mom making up words to song lyrics in the car throughout my entire childhood. Actually, who am I kidding? She’s my “Ma.” Thanks, Ma!! I was born and raised in Queens, New York, and raised by off-the-boat Italians, so I’m well known for being vivacious and talking with my hands (this 🙌🏻 is currently my favorite emoji). On a related note, I use emojis like they’re going out of style. 🎉👏🏻🙋🏻✨
That’s enough about me, let’s get real. 👊🏻 My process is simple: I want you both to feel comfortable and at ease. I wear my heart on my sleeve in my life, and I’ll do the very same with you. I’m the kind of gregarious gal that’ll tell some pretty bad jokes to get you laughing (a daily practice 😂) with eyes wide open for those “in-between” moments. I’m a creative guide, with Type-A organizational flair, and a big smile on my face, who plans to show up at your day not just as a photographer, but as a friend, and an artist, you really trust. That’s how I’ll capture the candid essence of you two.
I want you to look back at your images and feel a tug on your heartstrings. I want to transport you to exactly what the day *felt* like. I want you to always remember how special this one, giant celebration in your life was. Yours to remember forever. 💕
