Behind the Lens

ABOUT US

I'm a witty & sarcastic lover of life. Always happiest with a film camera or glass of wine in hand.

Travel-obsessed, lover of light,  European architecture, and the soft, glowing colors brought to life on film. 

I'm on decade three, and I live a simple, happy life with my boyfriend Andrew and our Westie Ollie in a 1940's colonial. Our nights usually consist of cribbage matches, taking way too many pictures of our dog and trying new bottles of wine. I'm outgoing, but my favorite weekends are spent at home, in sweat pants, working on this little business of mine.

There was a time when I thought that all I ever wanted was to be an executive and run a giant company. Then I discovered photography and realized that I'd much rather photograph love stories than sit in a board room discussing budgets.

In 2013, I created Jessica Bedore Photography, and since then, I've been honored (like really, super blown away!) to have had the opportunity to be a part of more than 120 wedding days. That's surreal to me. It's completely my dream, and all I want to do is continue keeping it real while living a happy, fulfilling life.

about us

Literally any type of seafood. I particularly love a good cedar plank salmon like this one from our clients' wedding this summer!

We love hiking with Ollie and exploring new trails! Whether we're in our own backyard or on vacation, we're fans of a good walk.

Spending time on Lake Michigan. I will never tire of it's beauty and serenity.

Obviously Ollie. He's my fur child and probably the most spoiled dog on Earth. I can't get enough of his zesty personality.

The Amalfi Coast blew me away with it's beauty. I also love the mountains in Austria, & the cliffs in Ireland. Sonoma tops my US destinations.

my favorite things:

WE LOVE FILM

 Inquire with us.

Our favorite thing about film is that it forces us to slow down and shoot intentionally. 

What's a hybrid shooter anyways? Let's chat about that. We love film for so many reasons, but mostly, we shoot film because it's timeless.  While digital photography has truly taken over the wedding industry since its introduction, film still holds a special place in our hearts. We love the natural grain of film, we love the color profile, and we love the flow between highlights and shadows that film provides. 

Most of all, our favorite thing about film is that it forces us to slow down and shoot intentionally. Since each roll only holds 16 frames, every image we craft on film is a work of art, framed and captured intentionally.  Plus, we get to walk around all day with an antique in our hand that sounds like a dinosaur when we hit the shutter. So that's neat, too.
