“I’m about the fleeting, intangible moments”

 

I take a photojournalistic approach to weddings, documenting the day in an honest way. Often times my work is very intimate, striving to capture the true essence of the day.  My goal is for you to look back on your images and remember how you felt in those moments, I want to create something meaningful.

If you’re looking for someone to direct and pose you throughout the day, I might not be the best fit for you. I’m about the fleeting, intangible moments which means you have to be ok with getting a little dirty and sneaking away for sunset.

Every wedding is unique and I encourage you to think about what you value most from your day and focus your time and attention on those.

Prints & Albums

 

Photographs are memories. Although all wedding collections include a high-resolution gallery of your images, I am a firm believer in being able to hold your memories in your hands. Don’t let my hard work sit on a hard drive, wasting away and nearly forgotten. Cherish those memories, display them throughout your home.

When I design albums, I want to display images without distractions and in the most beautiful and timeless way. Images are printed on thick archival matte paper, that will not fade or discolour so it will last many years. It’s important to me that you are excited about displaying your album throughout your home and that it will be an heirloom you show your children and grandchildren one day.

The overall design of the book is made alongside your help. You get to choose between difference colours, textures & fonts to create something you will love.

Kind Words

 

Intimate same-sex wedding in Picton Ontario

Anna & Alex

“Jess is everything you want in a wedding photographer: she’ll make you feel at ease during one of the most hectic and high-energy days, she is skilled and has a beautiful aesthetic, and captures the most raw, intimate moments. Would highly recommend her to capture the big moments of life. It was an easy choice to hire Jess for our wedding – she had a relaxed energy, and we felt like she could be one of our friends. Not to mention her photos are gorgeous, and she captured so many beautiful moments. “

 

Tori & Kyle

“I spent what felt like days researching photographers that were in country (Canada) so that travel fees would be less. After not finding anyone with the photography vibe I was looking for, I stumbled across Jess’ work on my Instagram explore page! We looked through her entire online archives and were in love. We saved money elsewhere through many handmade projects so that we could spend the majority of our budget on photos. We wanted beautiful photos to look back on for the rest of our lives, and to pass onto our family – and we are so happy with the result!”

“Jess shoots very dark, moody, and romantic photographs that resonated with both of us. When we first saw her work, it was like an emotional shot to the heart. Her photographs convey unspoken feelings and as she says, “captures the fleeting and intangible.” Asking her to be our photographer was a no-brainer. We knew we shared similar visions and aesthetics. She captured the wedding photographs we wanted: mysterious, artistic, engaging, that capture the light and the looks on our faces just-so.”
