our philosophy, the experience and investment
and groom to look back on years down the road. We believe in shooting weddings for y'all as if every image was going to be framed on the wall. We believe in the simple and natural moments of the day that bring together your entire love story. Because we only accept a limited amount of weddings each year, we want to make sure that we are a perfect fit!
We are there with you from the moment you are getting ready until the moment you're whisked away to your honeymoon! In order to best serve our clients and dedicate the necessary time that goes into each wedding, we do not take every wedding that comes our way. If you believe in romance & laughter and want wedding images captured in that light, head over to the contact form to tell us more about yourselves and your big day!
At our core, we are cheerleaders, celebrators, lovers of love stories, and "people" persons. We believe that hiring your photographer is THE most important vendor you will book for your wedding day. When it's all said and done, you'll have each other, your memories, and your heirloom images left from your wedding day. We are there to capture every moment as it unveils and preserve those memories for you to hold onto for the rest of your lives.
We are SO happy for you and truly can't wait to be a part of such an amazing day to celebrate your commitment to loving one another for the rest of your lives. We believe in creating romantic, yet timeless images that serve as a gateway to the fundamentals of your marriage. We want to be able to document those special once-in-a-lifetime lapses of time for the modern & classic bride
Every wedding package includes an heirloom wedding album because we believe your photos deserve more than living in an online gallery on your phone. Most wedding photography packages include 8 hours of wedding day coverage, a complimentary engagement session, a second photographer, and all fully-edited high resolution images in an online gallery. Add-ons are available for additional hours of coverage, additional photographers, additional portrait sessions, and print products! Contact us for more detailed pricing.
PS - We do offer elopement packages as well for weddings with guest capacities under 25 guests that take place Monday-Thursday.
Please ask for more information when inquiring!
Once you inquire, we send you pricing information and we're yours to answer any/every question! Once we receive your contract & deposit, you'll receive a #Jessbrides bridal guide to guide you through your wedding planning!
We'll use the bridal guide for tips to plan your engagement session such as timing, styling advice, props, and locations! After planning is finished, your only job is to show up & have fun. We're here to coach you every step of the way!
We'll be in touch with you throughout your entire engagement, sending you tips & tricks to your mailbox AND your inbox to help you plan all along the way. A month out from the wedding, we'll Skype for one last chat about all the details!
Once your wedding day is here and you've planned it all, we've done your engagement session, you've nailed all the little details, it's time for us vendors to bring your big day to life! It's time for YOU to relax, have fun, get married, and PARTY!
Although all good things come to an end, it's even BETTER when you get to relive them through photographs. We'll send you your wedding gallery within 8-10 weeks of your wedding!
Our style can be described in four words: timeless, simple, natural, and bright. We love being able to capture the candid moments in between all of the hustle and bustle, as well as the big aspects of the day like the ceremony. Whether it is your mother lacing up your wedding gown, your grandmother shedding a tear during the ceremony, or your first dance, we love being able to capture your wedding day in a non-obtrusive fashion. We're there to get everyone's attention and efficiently capture the family formals, but the rest of the day, we're there to capture the day as it unveils.
Good question! We do offer discounts for active duty service members (military and first responders) - this applies to the couple only, not parents. Please feel free to inquire to learn more! :)
You cannot take the engagement session out to reduce the cost. These sessions are complimentary and don't affect the price of the package. We include engagement sessions in our packages because we truly believe that they make a huge difference in the wedding experience process. Our couples get to learn so much about posing and they even learn about themselves! Getting to know one another is very important to us. We don't want to be a stranger showing up on your wedding day to be included on the very intimate parts - that would be strange! Instead, we get to know one another over the course of your engagement by the time it comes to your wedding day, you'll be a PRO!
Aww, that is too bad! But we completely understand that everyone has a different situation - heck, even Colby (my husband) was deployed for nearly 75% of our engagement! With that being said, if it just isn't possible to do an engagement session before the wedding day, we'd still love to get to know the two of you via Skype or FaceTime! We've even done week-of engagement sessions so we could hang out! We've even done venue walkthroughs with my couples who were out of state and could only be here for one day. The more chances that we have to get to know one another before your wedding day, the better.
We will show you in person and give you a little tutorial of your gallery and how it all works! We use an online gallery delivery system called Cloudspot. It's even mobile friendly! So many of our brides have loved the mobile friendly feature because they love the ease of access to all of their images right there on their phone for when they want to Instagram a photo! It's so handy and easy to use and if you even want, we can make the gallery private so only those you give access to the gallery can view/download the images! You get the fully edited high resolution images in this online gallery and your are able to download them straight to your computer and smart phone! You can even order professional prints through the store, or you're more than welcome to download them and order through a third party. :)
We guarantee to our couples that they will receive their fully edited images in a complete gallery 8-10 weeks from their wedding date. Portrait sessions are delivered by 6-8 weeks after the session. In off-season, this time-frame tends to be much shorter. We always try to get these images to y'all as soon as possible, but these time frames are in place in case of emergencies. :)
Engagement sessions typically last about an hour and a half and couples typically receive about 100-150 images. For wedding days, I guarantee to deliver 75-100 fully edited images for each hour that we were shooting on the wedding day. For example, if you hired us for an 8-hour wedding, you would receive at least 600-800 images.
Heck yes! We absolutely love to travel and we have actually been so many places in the United States which has been such a blessing. Coming from a military family, traveling just makes us that much more excited and when we get to photograph a wedding in another state, it just makes us so happy! Destination wedding packages are available as well, so don't hesitate to ask! Also, there are specific locations that we've been dying to photograph so inquire for special rates for those specific locations!
Aww, you are too sweet! We'd love to hear from you! Head on over to the contact form and be sure to completely fill out each space! Once we receive your inquiry, we will respond within 72 business hours. We can then set up a time to get to know one another (over the phone or FaceTime) and so we can hear more about your wedding day! Once you've decided you're ready to book, we will draft up a contract and send it over. Once we receive the completed contract, we will send an invoice for a 30% non-refundable retainer and once it is paid, you are officially part of the #jessbrides! YAY!!
