Jess is absolutely AMAZING! She is literally everything you would want in a photographer (punctual, attentive, funny, talented, organized, fun, inviting, patient, kind, and so freaking cool!).
My husband and I were connected with Jess after we got engaged, and I am so incredibly happy that we did. We live in Berkeley, and Jess was very accommodating in scheduling a date that she could travel up and that we could take off work. To top it off, Jess suggested that we get drinks beforehand to get to know each other, and this was truly special and really helped my fiancé and I relax. We then ventured to Muir Woods for our photoshoot. My husband and I both insisted that we were not photogenic and would be "awkward" the entire time, but Jess gave us the best prompts to get us smiling and laughing- it was almost like there wasn't a camera pointed at us! We got the photos back so quick, and immediately fell in love with the photos, it was so hard choosing just one for our invitations!
For the wedding, Jess was such a pivotal member of our team. She helped with the timeline, gave us advice in terms of florals and placements, she worked so well with the venue, and kept the day flowing smoothly. Jess validated my feelings when I was panicking, helped make sure details were in order, and kept the day light as we prepared for the first look (which was such a great suggestion). Jess captured so many wonderful moments, and took great shots of the details for us to remember.
We cannot recommend Jess more highly as a photographer and a genuinely kind, thoughtful human. We are very thankful for Jess and the radiant spirit she brings to her work. If you're searching for a photographer, search no further- Jess is your person.
