Hi! I'm Jessica and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer born and raised in Windsor, Ontario.
For as long as I can remember, cameras have been a pivotal part of my life. When I was a little girl, mom was directing poses with her camera, and dad was taking home videos. I grew up in a household filled with cameras and big metal lenses. I had no idea that this would be my destiny.
It took my love of travel to awaken the photographer deep inside of my soul. I went solo traveling for a year, meeting lovely people from all over the world. I couldn't resist the overwhelming joy I felt when looking over my photographs from my travels, this is when I decided to purchase my first real camera. My love for capturing landscapes grew into a love for manifesting the bonds of couples and families. With this new camera, I decided to enroll in online classes and workshops for photography. Five years later, I am able to call photography my career path, my purpose.
Why I do this? I want to give you memories that you can hold, see and feel.
I have a relaxed and easy-going nature. I like to bring that to the shoot and create a calm environment. My focus is the fleeting moments you may not notice, capturing those real and candid emotions.
Planning an Elopement?
I am such a fan of adventure elopements. My hubby and I eloped for our wedding last year. It was about the intimacy, the challenge of climbing up and marrying amongst an amazing scenery. There was a big significance of making the climb for us. If you are thinking about elopements, I am your girl. I would love to help you plan your adventure and be your wild photographer that will document your love.
Here's a few photos of our elopement taken by the amazing Banff adventure elopement and wedding photographer @laurabarclayphotography.
