I'm a lover of true love who's happiest with a film camera or glass of wine in hand (or both, if we're being honest)
I'm Jessica and I'm so happy you're here. This blog a journal about our business, lives, travels, and more. Stay a while and say hello!
Lindsey and John are the sweetest. After having dated for more than 8 years, 2020 was their year to tie the knot and finally make things official. Well, COVID had something else in mind. Luckily, these two were working with the amazing team at Alliey + Co, who helped them plan an entirely new, downsized […]
Wisconsin is full of natural beauty, and my favorite part of our beautiful state is the shores of Lake Michigan. How lucky are we to have such amazing bodies of water right in our backyard? The best part, in my opinion, is how the beaches make you feel like you’re on the ocean during the […]
My cousin Carly is expecting her first baby. We are all over the moon for this new little life, because he will be the first baby amongst us cousins on my dad’s side of the family. Carly, motherhood already looks SO good on you. I can’t wait to see you love on your new little […]
We all get sick of winter, but there’s something about being right smack dab in the middle of it, at a cabin on a lake, with a foot of fresh snow and a fire that makes it ohhh so appealing. When Margaret and Tim told me that they wanted me to capture them at one […]

Nothing beats fall in Wisconsin. When summer gives way to crisp air, jeans and boots, I come alive 🙂 I was so excited to spend the day soaking in all of the fall goodness that this area has to offer with Whitney and Alex. These two are planning a gorgeous summer wedding at Woodwalk Gallery […]
Sometimes, photographers get in creative ruts, and that’s exactly how I was feeling this summer. Amidst weekly sessions shooting gorgeous people in beautiful places, I somehow started to feel stuck. Lexi and Kane got me out of that state of mind. This session is the epitome of what magic can happen when a couple fully […]
When our youngest cousin, Kelsey, told us that she was going to take the year off after high school and move to England, I think it’s safe to say that we all took a collective gasp. Thousands of miles away at 18 years old… it was a daunting thought! But much to all of our […]
It’s never lost on me that my job allows me to be surrounded by genuine love every day. Witnessing all of these sweet couples get engaged and become married is the coolest thing. Alie and Logan are the sweetest souls. They’re just SO excited to get married and aren’t worried about the details. Since they […]
These two make my heart sing! Alana and Ryan have already been together for years and have had the unique opportunity of growing up and growing as a couple at the same time. Their infectious laughter and genuine love for each other was my favorite thing 🙂 We’re so excited for your spring wedding at […]
