Weddings are so awesome. The emotions, the details, your friends and family, the opportunity to take hundreds (okay, it’s usually thousands!) of pictures, and of course you two, the lovebirds. It’s all so joyful and exciting!

After your wedding, your pictures will be one of the only things you have left to remember that most special day. When you’re thumbing through your pictures, you want want your pictures to make you smile, cry and relive your wedding day all over again. (Maybe in a pink leather album!? 🙂 )

At JFP, I aim to produce fun, fresh, heartfelt, colorful images that do just that. My love for color, good light and unique details influences the mix of traditional, editorial and documentary styles represented in my couples’ final image collections. 

But it’s about more than just the pretty pictures. It’s about the experience, too. From the first time we chat, it will be easy and fun. We’ll talk about what you’re hoping for in your pictures and how we can make that happen. Your engagement session will be more like a date where we visit one of your favorite places…or while we eat ice cream, take a boat ride or hike through a state forest. (Deep Creek Lake can do all three!) We’ll laugh and talk, and I’ll probably say weird things like “Holler!” when I know we’ve captured something good. (Photography gives me such a thrill!) An organized, room-for-wiggle photography timeline will be created for the big day. 

I’ll photograph the heck out of your details and encourage you to get snuggly for romantic, interactive bride-groom portraits. I’ll also remember every name of every person in your wedding party and I’ll work swiftly through family pictures. I’ll act like two photographers in one and will be on the lookout for the next “moment in between”, especially if it involves grandma! And at the end of the night, I’ll come find you to share some smiles and hugs before it’s all over (after eating a piece of cake, of course). 

P.S. Deep Creek Lake couples, please let me know if you need help planning. I know the pros and am happy to help! 🙂

When I started the wedding planning process one of the most consistent pieces of advice I received and read was to hire your favorite photographer, not the cheapest or the first one you found. From the first time I saw her site, Jessica was my favorite and I can’t tell you how glad I am I heeded the advice...
