hey there, i'm Jess

i'm so happy you're here



My story as a photographer and floral preservation artist starts back in 2015. At that time, I was burnt out, spent 3 hours a day commuting and felt disconnected. I identified as a creative with no creative outlet and I couldn’t find the time to follow my curiosities. I wondered if there was something more. 

Then my partner and I made a decision that changed everything. We went on an adventure that took us to 9 countries, with nothing but our backpacks on our back. At the start of my trip, I bought a hardback book to preserve the flowers, foliage and memories of the places I visited. I also bought my very first camera. It’s hard to put into words the

where the story begins

impact that this experience had on us. The new sights, landscapes, streets, and the interesting characters I met, sparked something in me. Like always, I saw beauty everywhere I looked. After all, I was always that sappy and soulful kid with a knack for observing beauty in the ordinary. But with my camera - I could finally express it. 

At the end of that year, my world-traveling adventure had come to an end. But it was only the beginning. I wrapped up my year with a newfound love of documentary photography and floral preservation, and I transitioned from documenting my greatest adventures, to yours. Bloom & Wander Co was born.

Photography and floral preservation are just two art mediums with the same goal - documenting and preserving our life's greatest stories.

I’m a dog mama to a pair of rescue pities named Aurora Roo and Montavious Moo. I'm married to my best friend. This little family of mine makes my heart happy. Originally from the sunshine state of California, we have found our way home to a little cabin in the PNW woods. It's hard not to romanticize this life of mine (but then again that's just what I do - I can't wait to romanticize your sweet story too).

"Jess is absolutely AMAZING! She embodies everything you'd want in a photographer – punctual, talented, fun, and incredibly cool. From our first meeting over drinks to the Muir Woods photoshoot, Jess made us feel at ease. She captured our love effortlessly, and the photos exceeded our expectations. When we got married last October, Jess played a pivotal role, ensuring the day flowed smoothly, offering advice, and capturing countless beautiful moments. Her talent extends beyond photography – she even crafted beautiful jewelry from my bouquet. Jess is not just a photographer; she's a genuinely kind and thoughtful person. We can't recommend her enough!"

beautiful photos, exploding with creativity

- Jess and Mitch

I can not speak highly enough of Jess. She was AMAZING every step of the way, from planning to the wedding day. Her communication and willingness to help with pretty much everything made planning our wedding (in a state we had never even been before) so much easier. The day of the wedding she was amazing to work with. She completely put us at ease and really let us enjoy our day while capturing every important detail so beautifully. I have received so many complements on our photos since I received them. I never write reviews, but Jess is amazing and she deserves any recognition I can offer! 1000% book your photos with her.

I never write reviews. Jess is that amazing

- Whitney & Josh

Jess is an absolute dream to work with! My wedding photos are BEYOND perfect and I could not have dreamed of a more beautiful album to cherish forever. She was very communicative in the months leading up to my wedding and was so helpful from the moment I entered my venue. Jess and her partner truly helped make my whole wedding day feel so seamless and stress free and I will be forever grateful that I found Bloom and Wander Photo Co.

Jess was amazing to work with, easygoing, and prepared. She made our photo session seem more like a date designed to remind us of all the things we love about each other. The photos were beautiful and looked like images from a fairytale. I would recommend her to anyone who not only wants gorgeous photos, but a fun experience as well.
