That's what she said.”

“Jess was hands down the best thing that ever happened to my wedding. She literally took us through a step by step process of how she worked, but the layout of the day was totally up to us. Jess didn't push us to stick to a "well this is how I shoot" kind of timeline - she prioritized and worked around ANYTHING that was important to us. She calmed all of my nerves and answered all 3,000 of my questions. She made me feel more comfortable than any of my other vendors. I can't express enough how lucky we were to have her on the biggest day of our lives.”

“Jess is not only an exceptionally talented photographer but she is also a kind, silly, genuinely awesome person who will make sure that you feel listened to every step of the way and confident on your wedding day. She was so open and communicative from the first time we spoke about our vision, shots and ideas, and I truly felt like our opinions and participation in the process were of the utmost importance to her. She really worked to get a full understanding of the aesthetic and vibe that we wanted to achieve and she strived to make sure the photos matched our personalities, and that we got every important shot we wanted. I was also super impressed with her versatility and the wide variety of different types of shots she knew to capture; from candid, special moments to tiny details to stunning portraits. Every concern or question we ever had was addressed with such thoughtful advice and explanations that when our wedding finally came I felt so at ease.”

“She made us feel comfortable with who we are, and accepting of us. We never felt judged in front of the camera, which was very important to us since we are an introverted couple for the most part. I felt beautiful in every photo she sent. Jess is friendly, accommodating, and like a friend who will give you encouragement and advice when you need it in the midst of your bridal panic.” 

– Kristen + Aaron

“IMPOSSIBLE to put into words what Jess has done for us. I feel SO SO SO lucky we found her. I knew we needed Jess by her style of photography, and then I was sold when we spoke on the phone and it felt like we'd be BFF forever. She's so laid back, but so aware of who you are as a couple, and how she's going to capture that. Aside from her insane talent, she's funny and authentic and supportive. She wants the best day for YOU.”

“Jess, I can’t even begin to explain how much these photos mean to us. Everyone’s wedding pictures are important to them, but to us these are something entirely different. This is the last time our family was all together before we got the news of V.’s cancer diagnosis. I was hoping there would be some pics of her, and when I saw that there were, I burst into tears. Our tiny little peanut has changed so much. In the last thirty days she has been poked, prodded, and pumped full of drugs to destroy this disease. Her hair has fallen out, her face and body are swollen, and some days she hurts too much to walk let alone dance. This is the face of childhood cancer. These pictures mean so much to me and my family and I cannot thank you enough. I’ve always been so in love with photography because it’s a way of capturing a moment in time to go back and relive when you need to...when times are tough. It’s amazing what you do and what you give people without even knowing it. These are more than just photos, they are time capsules of what once was. You’re seriously gifted and there is no way we could be happier with our pictures...they are simply amazing. Thank you again for everything you have done.”

“Wow, if you are considering working with Jess Manns, DO IT! She is insanely talented and takes the most artistic and romantic photos. Moreover, she makes you feel totally comfortable and is so much fun to work with. She is always available via email, text, and phone. Before your wedding day, she sends a questionnaire that helps you plan out all the photos that are important to you (family portraits, special requests, etc.) and keeps you super organized. Along with taking amazing photos, she helped my husband and I put together the timeline for our wedding which was invaluable.” 

– Ali + Dave

“Not only was Jess the first person I booked for my wedding but she was and always has been the best wedding decision I made and I had a great wedding! If you are looking for beautiful pictures that aren't your typical stand and smile at me photos, she is your girl.” 

– Breah + Bill

“Can you find photographers that are cheaper, sure, but you won’t want to! We went into our wedding knowing that we were going to “splurge” on our photographer and went on a hunt for the perfect fit for us. We found that in Jess! We absolutely fell in love with her portfolio online and knew it was the perfect fit after face timing with her. Jess is very laid back in a manner that makes you comfortable, but very professional and organized! We didn’t want posed photos and absolutely love how our photos for both our engagement session (complimentary btw!) and our wedding came out! Another HUGE plus was that she was one of the first photographers we spoke to that did not push back on NOT doing a first look!”
