MEET JESS

PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK, & BEYOND FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER

My whole life is about finding and appreciating the colors around me (well, that and watching The Office incessantly). These may seem like competing goals, but laughter and color make the world come alive. I live in the mountains of Pennsylvania, surrounded by acres of green fields and saturated neutrals. Every time I look at my husband, I get lost in the glow of his amber eyes (cheesiest ever). Each morning, I bury my face in the sun-yellow fur of my golden retriever (perfect doggo).

 

But I also find beauty in the raw, rough-around-the-edges pieces of my life—the muddy puddles on our property, my sarcastic wit (which everyone knows is the hallmark of a genius), and the ever-present dog hair you can find in every corner of my house (worth it). Everything in our lives adds up to the colorful people we are and I love all of it.

 

It’s this attention to color and passion for finding the joyful moments that has brought me into the medium of film. Film brings out the fullness of every scene and allows me to document weddings in a dramatic, yet truthful way. My images show you real, authentic emotion, and help you remember the day as it actually happened.

 

Did you know that our memories are in color? Close your eyes and think about your favorite toy when you were younger. I bet the first thing you remember is what color it was. I remember mine, it was an American Girl doll with a red satin dress, deep blue eyes, and rich chestnut hair. That I think I remember cutting off and keeping in a bedside drawer. You know, normal sane kid stuff.

Colors give our past dimension, our history life. So when I photograph your wedding—the day you want to remember with as much vivid detail as possible—I photograph the colors.

I love inside jokes. I hope to be a part of one some day.” – Michael Scott 

 

Love, Jess
