show me the investment

A creative photographer that will feel more like a friend than a vendor. I've been described as a "bridesmaid with a camera." With cheesy jokes and killer dance moves I'll help make your wedding day a fun and stress-free experience! If you love color, a sense of adventure and a good belly-laugh, I may just be the right pick for you!

heart felt, one of a kind wedding photographer & videographer

for the joyful, color loving bride-to-be who adores fluffy flowers, a little midwest charm, and of course her fiancé!

Before anything else, I am a wife and mom. Most days you can find me out walking my miles with the dogs, or sprawled on the floor playing Legos with my son. I am a free spirit, an impossibly big dreamer, and a recovering work-aholic.

As a bride who gave up on the "traditional way" and got married in Jamaica, I can totally relate to how stressful this whole process is. I not only serve as a photographer to my brides, but a wedding resource as well. Let me take all the tips & tricks I've learned from shooting over 70 weddings, and help you make intentional decisions that lead to a stress-free wedding day. 


I'M JESSICA. I'M A CUPCAKE LOVER, YOUR WEDDING DAY BFF, AND I'LL PROBABLY LET YOU PAY ME IN PINK DRINKS AND GOLDEN DOODLES. 

I'm not your typical wedding photographer.

My goal is to provide you with an enjoyable experience, from the first email to the final delivery. I know how meaningful these photos are to you and your family, so it is my mission to capture authentic moments, full of emotion and personality. I will be by your side the entire day, making sure we get all the images you're dreaming of!

I love my job and the fact that I am invited to be a part of the best day of your lives! I love celebrating with you, and trust me when I say, you will see me out on that dance floor with you! I love the Cupid Shuffle and a few cupcakes.

Laughter is like oxygen to me! If you love cheesy jokes and endless belly-laughs, then I think we will be good friends!

I quit teaching and moved from Colorado to Iowa to dedicate my time to shooting weddings. I truly love what I do!

In the last 4 years I've shot over 70 weddings. I shoot between 25 and 30 weddings each year currently.

I'm self taught with the help of 10 extensive online courses and two national conferences.

to me, your wedding images are heirlooms. I hope your children and grandchildren love them in 50 years as much as you do now!

we don't need engagement photos. can we remove that cost?

Engagement sessions are all included as a complimentary service and have no monetary value attached to them. These sessions are to help us get to know one another more as well as get you both comfortable in front of the camera, which I believe to be of high value!

Do you provide a second photographer?

If you would like a second photographer, you may add one with a separate fee to pay him/her. However, I normally bring an assistant (my hubby or trusted friend) with me to all wedding days, he/she just won't be shooting.

Will we have the rights to our images?

All images are released to you with printing rights. This means you are free to download, post, print, share and create however you want! The only thing you are asked not to do is re-edit the photos, as they do not come with the "copyright" release.

How many photos will we get? are they edited?

I can't guarantee a number of photos, but a typical wedding day produces 50 to 75 images per hour of coverage. Most couples receive over 600 images in their gallery, and all final images are professional edited by me by hand.

Do you charge a travel fee?

I do not charge travel fees unless the event is further than 60 miles from Meriden, IA. If it is further away, I charge the standard $0.50 per mile.

what is the first step to book photo & video?

To be "officially booked," I ask for a signed digital contract and a non-refundable deposit of $500 to hold your date. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

i still have a few questions...

I'm standing by to hear from you & setup a consultation! cheers to getting the big decisions checked off! now for the fun stuff!

I cannot wait to hear from you!
