I hear you: you don’t want your day to feel like a big photoshoot, a production, or anything other than meaningful and magical. You want to get back to the root of why we even take pictures of weddings – to commemorate and preserve evidence of your vows and the celebration with your loved ones – and keep the main thing the main thing. You’re looking for a photographer who fits in like one of your best friends, absorbing and experiencing the day right along with you.

If you want past, present, and future you to be thankful you found someone who can capture your day like this, then you’ve found your documentary wedding photographer

YOUR VIRGINIA WEDDING & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

moments you will cherish forever

HERE TO PRESERVE

When looking through your photos in 10, 20, or even 50 years, you don’t want to see a bunch of pictures that look like your Pinterest board from the 20s. You want each photo to spark a dozen timeless memories – like the chill of the autumn air, the way your dress swung to and fro, how your grandma couldn’t stop smiling the whole night, the taste of your new spouse’s lips, and countless more. You’re looking for true and honest evidence that brings you back and steadies you in these fleeting moments. You want to freeze your day just how it is and cherish it forever.

"Jessica is the most phenomenal photographer! She was easy to work with and took the most beautiful photos that my husband and I could’ve ever asked for on our wedding day. AND she was a blast on the dance floor 👏🏼 I will recommend Jess to any and everybody for photography because her work is absolutely amazing!! We got at least 100 sneak peaks the NEXT DAY, and we’re blown away at the quality. Thanks so much again, Jessica and Jarius! 💛"

DOUG + ASHLEY

"Jess did the most amazing job with our photos! From Engagement to Wedding we are in love. It is easy to tell that Jess puts her heart and soul into the photos and loves every part of her job. She met with us prior to the wedding and went through each moment of the day. I knew that on my wedding day anything that was in her purview was going to be done well."

LUIS + REED

"Jessica doesn't just "work" your wedding, she becomes a friend and a wonderful support all throughout the wedding process. She loves what she does and you can tell--she's dedicated to what she does and works with absolute excellence. Jess traveled far for my wedding and took the most gorgeous photos that I can't stop looking at. She sent me 100's of sneak peaks the next day followed by an extensive gallery a few weeks later and a personalized usb that will make a wonderful keepsake. I am so grateful for Jessica and would recommend her to anyone!!!"

"Jessica was amazing! Her energy made us feel very comfortable, confident, and helped us have fun during our shoot in San Francisco, CA. Her positive energy and enthusiasm was contagious and genuine. We loved working with her and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer!"
