I'm Jessica: wife, mom, photographer, educator
I'm a creative girl boss, obsessed with wedding photography and videography. I have a degree in education and want to bring that into the creative industry by teaching other bosses how to make their dreams come true! When I'm not working, my days are filled with long walks down every aisle of Target while sipping my Pink Drink and listening to my newest playlist. It's the small things!

This past Saturday the sun FINALLY came back out! I was worried in the morning, but the clouds cleared and gave us a perfect day for a barn wedding. I was so happy to be Chase and Josie’s Grainery Lodge wedding photographer! They are a reserved couple, but once they let you in, they’re the sweetest!
This wedding was overall one of my favorites to be a part of! There were so many reasons this day was extra special, but my favorite was watching Chase see Josie for the first time walking down the aisle toward him! No matter what anyone said, they wanted this moment together more than anything and it was breathtaking! I am not sure I saw Josie blink at all while they gazed at each other! Chase was emotional, but I could tell it was pure joy!
There were so many thoughtful details, personalized gifts and sweet moments during this day that reminded everyone why the choice to have an intimate celebration was the perfect one for this couple. I just can’t stop telling everyone around me how PERFECT this day was…the weather cooperated, the bridal party was so happy to share the moments with the bride and groom, and Cooper (their pup) was in a doggo tuxedo!! It was adorable set to overload and I could barely handle it! The details were pure perfection and I hope everyone loved the event as much as I did.
Chase and Josie, thank you for letting me capture such a sweet celebration and be your Cherokee wedding photographer. It was truly SUCH a privilege and an honor to be chosen to photograph such a beautiful day. It means the absolute world to me and I hope you love my favorites as much as I do!!!
