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!
Growing up, I was lucky to have three boys as my closest friends. My cousins who felt more like brothers. It’s been such a pleasure to do life with this group of people, and it was so surreal to watch one of them marry the love his life last month. Phil, we’re all so happy […]
Nicole and Jack are one of those couples that have an electric energy. They met while working at the YMCA as swim instructors and quickly fell for each other. They have a real love. That soul mate material. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness you two!
We were so excited to spend the afternoon with these two love birds. Christine and Dan met over Instagram and have been crazy in love since then. Christine describes Dan as an adventurous soul who has helped her grow and push her boundaries. A pilot, he’s always on the move. In fact, these two just […]
Kate and Sam wanted a quintessential spring wedding day, and they lucked out with the PERFECT weather + peak spring blooms. Their ceremony at Green Bay Botanical Gardens highlighted everything that I adore about Wisconsin in the springtime. There were so many gorgeous flowers, blue skies and beautiful sunlight… combine that with this cute couple […]
This wedding is a special one because Jenny is my cousin and we all just love her dearly. Jenny and Nick have been dating since high school — they’re just one of those couples that we’ve always known would end up together one day. These two have truly grown up TOGETHER. With two sets of […]
Weddings like this are why I continue to do what I do. And it’s not just because of the pretty decorations and scenery (although this wedding had ALL of that!). This wedding had me feeling all of the feels because of the people and the true love that was shining through at every corner. I […]
Winter gets a bad rap, but as a photographer I’m beginning to love the slow season (even though it can be a bit mundane). Since my journey with film has evolved, I’ve found the confidence to shoot more film indoors, and I am seriously loving the results. This Madison family session was one of my […]
Wisconsin has SO much beauty. I need to remind myself of this when I get sick of all of the usual engagement session spots. Nicole + Jack have a love for the water. Both swimmers, they wanted their engagement sessions on the beach, where they spend so much of their time. We chose Point Beach […]
There are two things that I distinctly remember about this wedding day. One: It was freezing and windy, but SO sunny. Two: Everyone who was a part of this day, including ourselves, had the time of their lives. Stacey and Scott definitely know how to throw a party! In my opinion, the most hilarious part […]
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of finally meeting one of my longtime Instagram friends. You know… those people who you message, share tips with and interact with online but have never met in person. 🙂 Amy is the owner of Relax Event Planning, a new(ish) wedding and event planning company in Madison, […]
